With more and more brands being discovered day by day, it can be difficult to find something that is genuine instead of mass produced. Brands are now endlessly searching through trends in order to find that ‘something different’, rather than producing intricate and genuine jewelry. Brands are no longer interested in utilizing their history or their heritage, and instead, are attempting to create something that immediately sells. It’s time to move away from brands that are ‘something different’ and time to move towards the timeless, classic and more importantly, traditionally rich brands. We have listed 4 designer jewelry brands you should really consider for AW16!
We’ve all seen and fallen in love with those high-end designer wedding dresses on TV. And if you’re anything like me, you’ve watched Say Yes to the Dress a bit more than you’d like to admit. Designer dresses are undoubtedly gorgeous but there are so many cheaper options that are just as jaw-dropping. If you’re planning your wedding on a tight budget, or if you’d prefer to save up for a breath-taking honeymoon instead of a one-time wedding dress, you might think you have to sacrifice the quality or style of your dress. But, ladies, you’re wrong. I’m so excited to present to you 5 ways to find your perfect wedding dress at an attractive cost to you.
If you’re anything like me you are beyond ready to kick winter to the curb and start enjoying spring. What better way to do that than to go shopping?
Okay, that is my solution to everything, but in this case, it actually works!
When you are stuck with the ‘same ol’ same’ stuff you get bored and it makes letting go of a season that much harder. When I pack something away I want to replace it with something new. Kind of like ex-boyfriends ;).
This spring I have some great suggestions to help you get in the spring spirit (that’s totally a thing, I swear.) If you see a * by the title then I got that product sent (for review purposes) to me; there are also affiliate links within this post. Let’s get down to business!
* Invisi bobble – Because your hair deserves a break. I have a lot of hair. It’s not necessarily long (it hits just above my bra strap) but it is very thick. If I leave it down there’s a 9/10 chance it is going to poof out, get in my eyes, and/or attack at the first sign of danger. I want to be able to keep it secure without worrying about a band snapping or being left with the ghost of ponytails past.
You know, you take your hair out of a ponytail only to have it think it is still in a ponytail.
The Invisi Bobble puts a stop to all of that and gives you a retry style hair holder that doesn’t rip out your hair! You can get a 3 pack for less than $9 and they are available in different sizes & colors.

BodiPure Keratin Gloves & Socks – Because there’s no place for dry, scaly winter skin in spring! These disposable gloves and socks are just what you need to make your skin soft and touchable again. You can really feel the difference after just one use!

* Gray Away – Because you can’t dye your hair every time a gray pops up. Disguise those in-between salon times with the cute and compact temporary root concealer from Gray Away.
Getting rid of roots is now a pat away with touch-up magnetic powder that binds to hair until the next wash. With self-adjusting color technology that blends undetectably and matches hair color perfectly, the protein infused powder leaves hair soft, shiny and natural to the touch. Free of harsh chemicals and dyes.
Gray Away is available in 3 color-matching technological blends: Black/Dark Brown, Light Brown, Lightest Brown/Dark Blonde. Just dip the brush into the magnetic powder and brush on. This will definitely get you through until you can touch up those roots.

* Kleenex Exfoliating Cushions – Because your skin could use it. I don’t know about you but I always seem to make a mess when I’m exfoliating. With these individually wrapped exfoliating cushions, there is no mess and you get the gentleness that you’d expect from Kleenex.
An exclusive combination of dual-sided, multilayered fabrics and a gentle cleanser that exfoliates and polishes the skin in seconds. Designed to reveal a healthy, more radiant glow in just one use.

* Totally Sweet Kitchen Accessories – Because 5% of each product purchase goes to Bake for Benny (a fund dedicated to benefiting national no-kill animal shelters in honor of the company’s first beloved office dog!). Totally Sweet Products sent over their Cookie Dough Scoops, Set of Icing Combs, and 6″ Cookie Spatula and they are so, so, so cute!
The cookie dough scoops give you the perfect amount for the perfect cookies and the spatula lets you take them out of the pan without breaking! The icing combs are great for all cake makers, regardless of experience. They make cake decorating simple and flawless, just how I like it!

Food Huggers – Because wasting food is a crime, well it should be 🙂 When you only need a portion of a fruit or veggie these food huggers will let you keep them from going bad so quickly. They ‘hug’ your leftover produce to keep air from turning them into a mushy mess.

Cabinet Pan Organizer Shelf Rack – Because tossing everything onto a pile under the counter just isn’t cutting it anymore. Cooking becomes a lot easier when you have your pans on hand, without having to dig through a bunch of other pots and pans to find them. You’ll be amazed at what a difference these make!

* Shoe Slotz – Because space is precious. Where do you keep your shoes when you’re not wearing them? For me, it’s the top shelf in my closet; but that space is pretty valuable.
Shoe Slotz lets you stack your shoes so you take up less space! You can literally save half of the space you are currently using (assuming you keep your shoes side-by-side.). These come in groups of 6 for just under $15!

Hanging Jewelry Organizer – Because you need your accessories on hand and untangled. If you are sick of seeing your necklaces tangled, missing an earring, or just need to organize your jewelry collection this is for you.
It hangs on the wall so you’re not taking up valuable counter/table top space and it holds several pieces. I got this one from Michael’s (not under $20) but I’m sure you can find other options as well.
