All-around great wristlet. I purchased one of these as a teacher's gift for Christmas. We were limited on the amount we could spend by the school. I was surprised (and relieved) that Coach offered such a useful & stylish option for such a great price point. The size is perfect to hold a small key chain, smart phone, cards & cash & a lipstick. Coach offered multiple finishes & color combos. You can go classic or youthful. It truly made a perfect gift & was much loved (and used often) by the recipient. She gave it rave reviews & stated that she had never received such a wonderful gift from one of her students. This truly is one of the best buys you can get at this price point. It's a no brainer!!
Elegance, extravagance & timeless beauty all in one little blue box. What girl doesn't dream of walking out of a Tiffany & Co. Boutique with a little blue bag on her wrist? Well, okay, there may be some. But for the gen pop of the entire world over the brand Tiffany & Co. is synonymous with unparalleled luxury. The boutique'sdedigns are tasteful & timeless & exhibit incredible craftsmanship & quality. Customers will find a wide array of price points. Sterling silver jewelry is more affordable & attainable yet still evokes classic design & luxury. The boutique also offers designs in gold, rubedo, & platinum. Semiprecious & precious gemstones are cut precisely & set elegantly in a variety of settings all the way up to haute joallerie. The top pieces are absolutely stunning. The design house boasts multiple designers who contribute to their own Tiffany collections. The boutique also offers China, handbags, sunglasses, stemware & fragrances but is most widely known for its jewelry. I personally own many pieces & adore them all. They were all "special" purchases & have significant meaning for me in different periods in my life. This line is perfect for such occasions: milestone birthdays, graduations, push gifts &, of course, the all-important statement engagement ring. The customer service is excellent. The jewelers are more than happy to help you locate the perfect gift.
Great quality & creativity with a price tag to match!! Chanel is the height of fashion, beauty & style... But the brand knows it. Their beauty products often evoke a passion in me to run out to the department store to scoop up the whole collection. But I have to pace myself as many -- if not all -- of their products are restrainingly expensive. One of my fave new products of their beauty line is the stylo lips. OMG!! The colors are insanely gorg & the formula of the Stylo Lips is beyond compare. They are incredibly hydrating --a complete 180 from their matte lipsticks do beloved by many. The pigmentation is great considering the creamy formula. I own most of the colors -- I'm a makeup fiend -- and can honestly say that all of the six shades I own compliment my skin tone & are amazingly flattering. The level of comfort wearing these lipsticks keeps me coming back to the counter to purchase more, regardless of the steep price point. $37!! The high shine helps make my little lips appear larger -- a definite plus. They do not have a minty tingly feeling, which is completely welcome. I adore the stylo lips. 4 out of 5 stars given because I wish they had a larger shade range & a price that is a bit more affordable.
Black Opium is a dream fragrance. Not only is the bottle chic & stunning, but the scent inside is sexy & comfortable, not cloying or headache-inducing. The fragrance is soft & alluring; sensual but modern. This scent is warm, so it is best worn in cooler seasons or saved for date night. The fragrance lasts quite a while but isn't overbearing. I was fortunate enough to purchase during the holidays when a gift set was available. In the set I purchased I received a full sized bottle of the perfume & a portable rollerball as well. The amazing flacon gets a front row seat in my fragrance collection as I reach for it often. The rollerball is a frequent on holiday or in my purse. I think it's refillable as well. Gorgeous scent that evokes sensuality & extravagance. I will definitely repurchase a full sized bottle when mine runs out.
Addictive. I decided to begin watching this series after I heard from many sources that it was thrilling & addictive. I had also finished another series on Netflix & was looking for something new to watch. The first few episodes were slow but intriguing. By the end of the first season, I was hooked. The constant struggle the characters face to survive keeps me coming back for more -- even if I wish some of the characters would just finally have their brains eaten!! Of course this series is complete fiction, but that is part of the beauty of shows like this. The escape from politics in today's society is desperately needed. Even though this show offers up death & destruction like many other shows, it is done in a manner I have not yet experienced & is therefore the reason I keep coming back to watch. I would not allow young kids to watch. Sexual content & language are present but is minor in comparison to the violence & graphic nature of scenes involving death. This show is truly disgusting in a good way. Not for the faint of heart or easily terrified. If your kids suffer nightmares DO NOT LET THEM WATCH.
OMG! What a show! I have watched most of the original Netflix TV series shows. None disappoint -- and Orange Is the New Black is no different. The story line follows a pretty, white woman who gets arrested by being connected to a drug ring & how she survives in a low- security Womens prison. The content & language is racy -- not for young kids. But the storyline is such a departure from other cable & network shows that it becomes addictive to watch. I find myself binging on episodes for a few days straight as soon as the new season drops. Where other prison shows are dark & violent, this show keeps you highly entertained with its wit & unique situations & twists. Some characters are truly annoying, but that is part of the "charm" of this series. It is truly a must watch!!
Into fashion, beauty& the latest trends? This magazine is for you. Unlike some magazines that cater to the super wealthy, InStyle identifies current trends & presents fashion finds in pocketbook-friendly suggestions. They stay current in fashion, beauty, health & fitness. They also offer articles on love & sex. Most of the content is helpful without falling into the derogatory category of a gossip mag. I like that content is inspirational in nature (uplifting your self-confidence) and seems to be written in a manner that is not just directed toward the female population (men wear makeup & enjoy fashion too). I enjoy their reviews of salons nationwide & consider their opinions on products I'm thinking of test driving. All in all, this mag is helpful in staying on trend without breaking the bank.
Solid flossing product. These changed my life. I hate having food between my teeth. These are lifesavers & are extremely portable. The mint flavor is a nice added benefit. The pick on the end is quite helpful in ridding your gaps of that unwanted food but can be quite sharp. That is the only reason I'm giving this product a 4 instead of 5.
I have used these sponges for years & have not bought anything else. So I have nothing really to compare the to. I use them on a daily & can assure you they get the job done without a lot of elbow grease. I mainly use them for cleaning purposes as I have a brush to wash my dishes -- I think a brush for dishes is slightly more sterile than a sponge which may harbor tons of bacteria. That being said, I do throw these sponges in my washing machine with my towels I use for cleaning to rid them of some of the bacteria picked up during the cleaning process. this process does not impact the life of the sponge. It does look a bit dry when I take it out of the dryer but it is just as absorbent as it was when first used. These sponges will last a long time. But I'm a bit of a germophobe I do throw these out quite often -- usually before they are destroyed.
