9 Reasons to Love Endless Jewelry Wrap Bracelets

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
I am totally smitten with my new Wrap Bracelet from Endless Jewelry. It's unlike any other jewelry I've ever owned. Here's my list of 9 Reasons to Love Endless Jewelry Wrap Bracelets!

Reason 1
It's affordable luxury for the rest of us. It costs a little more than costume jewelry, but less than fine jewelry. Yet, it performs and presents like fine jewelry.
Reason 2
It's a charm bracelet, but it doesn't jingle around like a noisy chain link charm bracelet. The band is made of premium leather and won't turn my arm green. Its rounded band shape is amazingly comfortable to wear. It's low profile, but makes a huge statement.

Reason 3
The band fits securely around my wrist without being too tight or too loose. It comes in single wrap, double wrap, or triple wrap, with varying sizes for each wrap style, so it fits exactly as you want it. It also doesn't turn around on my wrist to expose the closure.
Reason 4
There are over 600 incredibly beautiful and interesting charms to choose from, which makes it completely customizable. The charms fit snugly around the leather band, with no slipping and sliding. I can place them wherever I want on the band and they stay where I put them.

Reason 5
The charms are made of quality materials, like sterling silver, stainless steel, gold plate, and rose gold plate. I can buy the charms individually, which means I have a new collection obsession. There's even a Jennifer Lopez collection.
Reason 6
The wrap bracelet comes a choice of many colors, like black, blue, green, gray, mint, lavender, brown, rose, white, and many more. Wraps can even be connected together for a multi-colored, extended length look.

Reason 7
It has a simple magnetic closure. No lobster claws, no spring rings, no hook clasps, and it doesn't require me to get help to put it on my wrist. The magnetic closure snaps right in and holds securely so the wrap doesn't open on its own.
Reason 8
The charm styles include everything from a simple wrap band charm to a sparkly hanging charm. There are charms with stones and pearls. There are charms with patterns and designs. There are charms with hearts, stars, leaves, butterflies, angels, dolphins, crosses, flowers, zodiac signs, and much more.

Reason 9
I can shop online, avoiding traffic, avoiding parking, avoiding crowds, and no one knows if I'm shopping in pajamas. I'm waiting for the website to add a wish list function, so I can save all my favorite charms in one place (and send the list to my husband and kids for gift ideas).
Endless Jewelry is available in 23 countries worldwide. Shop conveniently (and obsessively) on their easy-to-navigate website at www.endlessjewelry.us

Back to High School and College Essential for Guys - Philips Norelco Click and Style

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
All across the nation, hairy teenage guys are heading back to high school and college. Philips Norelco Click and Style is the first of its kind with three attachments to help them create the look they really want.
The Click and Style attachments - shaver, beard trimmer, and bodygroomer - conveniently click on and off easily in seconds, so your guy can create the look he really wants and still be on time to classes. It's incredibly easy to switch from one attachment to another.
The dual-rotary shaver will give him that crisp, clean, closely-shaven look to impress professors. This cordless, rechargeable shaver can be used dry for quick convenience or on a wet face with shaving cream for extra skin protection. It's even shower proof!
The beard trimmer attachment will give him that rough and ready weekend look for hanging out with his friends, playing ball, or skateboarding across campus. The Philips Norelco Click and Style also comes with a full two year warranty!
With five length settings, he can choose from a range of 1mm for a perfect three-day stubble to 5mm for a handsome short beard and mustache. The battery will last up to 40 minutes after a one hour charge, so he has plenty of time to get ready.
Now that manscaping is all the rage, the bodygroomer attachment is just what he wants. It has rounded combs and pearlized tips that prevent skin irritation and provide a smooth skin surface, no matter where he's grooming beneath his neck.
While you're buying all those back to school supplies, be sure to grab him a Philips Norelco Click and Style! It provides easy, safe shaving and grooming all over. It comes complete with all three attachments, a charging cord, covers, and a cleaning brush. As a bonus, the trimmer blades never need to be oiled.

Lunch at Paradise Drive Through, Nevis #travel #NevisMangoFest

#sponsored travel
I was delighted to eat at Paradise in paradise! When you're visiting the island of Nevis, it's a place you'll definitely want to stop at for a meal. This drive-through restaurant also offers a wonderful covered patio as well as some sunny picnic table spots to eat.
I dined with Yvette Jackman of the Nevis Tourism Authority. This pretty lady and I spent quite a bit of time together during my week on Nevis and she is so sweet. She drove me all around the island to show me some of her favorite spots.
We settled on a patio table under the beautiful colored scarves that were blowing in the island breezes. Paradise is located in Paradise Estates and just across the road, we could see a farmer in the field with his cows. I started with a Starfruit Juice, which I'd never tasted before, and it was SO good.
Although I'm disappointed my meal photo didn't turn out well, I was not disappointed at all with my lunch. I had mahi mahi with a wonderful mango sauce on top, a mix of rice and beans, fresh salad, and veggies. Although I was really full, I had to taste off the extra plate brought to us, to try their tender red meats and polenta. Everything was absolutely scrumptious!
This restaurant is the only one of its kind on Nevis, so make sure you stop by. Visit Nevis Tourism Authority to start planning your trip to Paradise!

Giveaway! Paper Pumpkin "Thanks A Latte" DIY Craft Kit

Disclosure: I received product at no charge in exchange for my honest review.
My favorite monthly subscription box is the Paper Pumpkin Craft Kit. This month I received the "Thanks A Latte" card kit, which contains supplies for 8 fabulous cards plus envelopes. Each kit comes with complete instructions, plus access to an online video tutorial.
This craft kit includes a stamp set, two inks, 8 cards, 8 envelopes, 8 pattern papers, die cut coffee cups, die cut notebook papers, a sheet of sticker strips, 8 paper clips with bows attached, adhesive strips and 3d sticker dots.
I started by stamping the coffee cups with the included Early Espresso Classic Stampin Spots Ink. If you've never stamped before, there are even tips included on how to get started. The Paper Pumpkin supplies come from Stampin' Up! so they are all very high quality.
Then I stamped the little greetings inside each coffee cup. I think I need to work on my placement a bit, but I'm still happy with how they turned out.
Then I used the included Cucumber Crush Classic Stampin Spots Ink to add some color to the plant stamps on the coffee cups. Aren't they cute?
Next, I folded the cards in half and used adhesive to stick the patterned papers to the front of each of the eight cards.
I added one strip of each of the two sticker strips to the bottom of each of the notebook paper die cuts. I love the color combinations in this kit!
I put a paper clip with a bow on the left edge of each one of the notebook die cuts. I'm so glad the bows were already attached because I'm not sure I could tie a bow that tiny!
Using the 3d sticker dots, I adhered the stamped coffee cup die cuts to the notebook paper die cuts. Then I used more 3d sticker dots to attach the notebook paper die cuts to the cards.
In the polymer stamp set, there was even a coffee steam stamp, so I added that detail to the card with the coffee cups that didn't have a plant detail.
Then I used adhesive to fold and seal the edges of the matching envelopes. In about thirty minutes, I had 8 wonderful cards to share with friends and family!
Sign up for your monthly Paper Pumpkin craft kit HERE!
Follow them on Pinterest for more great craft ideas!

Open to US residents 18 and older. Giveaway ends on 8/22/2015. Good luck!

Dinner at Bananas, Nevis #travel #NevisMangoFest

#sponsored travel
Bananas is one of the most lovely restaurants on the island of Nevis. The ambiance is spectacular. The entrance is a stone path, with fire torches perched on both sides of the path. It leads through an island jungle garden to the restaurant. 
We were seated on the patio with a very warm Nevis welcome. I started with a refreshing Hot For Haiti rum cocktail (okay, I had two) and, if I remember correctly, a plate of Tannia Fritters with Nevis Hot Sauce, which were delicious.
I dined with Greg Philip (Nevis Tourism Authority) and Scott Higby (Austin Texas chef) and his wife Karina (Austin pastry chef). Great food and great company always makes for a wonderful meal, and nowhere better to do that than on Nevis!
We ordered two huge mixed appetizer platters. They were filled with a variety of foods and sauces and each item was a tasty treat. I actually had to take two different photos to get a good shot of all the different choices on the platter.

For my main course, I chose the Curry Shrimp with Rice and it was incredible. The curry spice was exactly the right amount, so that it was spicy but not over-spiced. After eating the shrimp (since it's one of my favorite foods), I stirred the rice and vegetables into the sauce for a heavenly meal.
Even though I barely had room for dessert, I had to try the Banana Creme Brulee. Simply fabulous! Bananas Restaurant is a place you must visit when you're on Nevis. I highly recommend everything about it.
Funny story: When I returned to my cottage at The Hermitage for the night, it was dark until I walked into the motion-sensor light area in front of my cottage door. I heard something to my right and looked over to see a donkey standing just a few feet from me. We quite startled each other and he shuffled off quickly into the dark.
Visit the Nevis Tourism Authority to plan your trip and be sure to dine at Bananas!
