Fall in Love with Some Jewels *Majestic Jewelry*

Disclosure: I received this product as part of an advertorial. 

Like most girls I love me some jewelry, mixing and matching them up with each other, with outfits and all that fun stuff.  When given the opportunity to check out some new jewelry and share that with you guys, well…what’s a girl to do?  Majestical Jewelry sent me these absolutely amazing earrings.  They are absolutely beautiful to look at and make quite the statement.



The stones on these are beautiful and flawless looking at them.  These are their Beaded Drop Earrings and would set you back about $6.50.  Yes, that’s what I said.  What is so great about these earings is that they feel really high quality.   The earings aren’t flimsy and the stones are set well.  They hang about two inches off your ear.  Since they are such a statement all by themselves I decided to pair them with a simple necklace with diamonds.


I thought they went well together and you definitely do not want to overdo with with all your jewelry at one time, especially in a daytime look.
One of the reasons why I love the idea of companies like Majestical Jewelry is that they bring trends to everyone by making them affordable.  Majestical Jewelry was started by a small group of jewelry lovers in South Carolina that strive to bring amazing jewelry to everyone, at a cost people can actually afford.  High quality jewelry none the less.   After purusing the site I found so many thing that I would love to have, and tons of things I had seen in magazines and on tv.


These are just a few of the amazing pieces you can snag, and all for twenty dollars or less.  Now that is something that I can get on board with.  I see myself making a swing by Majestical Jewelry in the near future.  If you visit theirwebsite and sign up for their newsletter there just might be something in it for you.
Did you pay a visit to their website?  I wanna know what really cool thing you found!  Are you an earring girl or a necklace girl?

Puccini Ties from Bows and Ties *review*

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Bows 'N Ties

It isn’t very often that I get to review items for the hubby; so when I received the chance to review something for him I jumped at it.  Puccini Ties, courtesy of Bows and Ties are beautiful ties.  Mr. Air Force approved of the quality and feel of the tie; but was kind of worrid about the color.

Rich Peacock and White Striped Tie 
When you look at it in the picture it really is an interesting color, and quite bright.  His initial reaction was not good.  He said that he would wear it for a picture (which needless to say I never took and then he left to do some traveling) and that was that.  But one day he came home with it on, paired with a white shirt and grey pants.

The picture I took makes it look slightly darker then it appears in the website photo.  I would say in real life its somewhere inbetween.  It really is a beautiful tie and they are very affordable, setting you back only $9.90.  While Mr. Air Force happens to be a grade-A tie snob I might have gotten away with these ties.  He probably won’t make a habit of stocking up on these ties, because I think breaking a tie snob of his ways might prove difficult. However if I wanted to get some ties for the boys to match Bows and Ties would be my first stop.  They have an extensive collection of boys ties, you can definitely accomplish the whole Daddy/son matching thing.   These are some of my favorites:
Light Green and White Kids TieStriped Silk Kids Tie Silver and WhiteLight Blue Silk Kids Tie 
They also have environmentally friendly and organic ties, for those that appreciate the green lifestyle.
Check out Bows and Ties.  I’m sure you can find what you’re looking for.  Thanks for stopping by!

Potty Training Fun – Potty Cover Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. Happy Tuesday ya’ll! I am here happily to bring you a little fun parenting post, and a little product review and recommendation, brought to you today by The Potty Cover.

Potty training is one of those necessary evils in life.  Having potty trained two, very different (and not just in gender) children, and already contemplating the fact that I will potty training yet one more, I’ve learned a lot.  Of course I’m not an expert in any medical sense of the word, but I think having three kids puts me on some sort of expert scale.  So, here’s some important things to know about potty training, and like I eluded to above – every child is different, we are not the rule, here’s my experiences.

1. Boys are different than girls
Whether or not the fact that she was the second child or not, my daughter was far and away easier to potty train then my son.  The rule about the next in line doing stuff faster because they have someone to copy isn’t necessarily always the case.  My youngest just decided to start walking full time, at about 16 months.  It just wasn’t his thing, even though he had two others walking around to copy.  So there you go.

2. Potty Training should be like a band-aid
Everyone has their own methods.  I favor the sort of all or nothing approach.  When my son started being dry at night we started in underware…until I realized he wasn’t pooping.  He just wouldn’t.  It was his last stand on Control Mountain.  There were several occasions I put a diaper on him for a couple days to try to avoid the whole constipation issue, all the while maintaining wet-free diapers.  Then, daddy decided that the men should have a come to Jesus session, full of oatmeal, prune juice and the like.  They hung out in there, talking reading and discussing facts, real meeting of the minds type deal, until  “it” happened.  With daughter she had a really early potty training experience.  She went both 1 and 2 at 18 months old.  I decided that my all or nothing, band-aid, type method wasn’t an exact science.  I just didn’t feel like at 18 months old she had the capacity to do it.  She is also my heavy sleeper, so it wasn’t until at about 3 1/2 that she went through the night dry.  Incidentally, Pediatricans don’t get concerned about bed-wetting until after 4.  During the summer we went naked (weirdly enough something I saw Kate – from Jon and Kate – do), and by the time she was two we weren’t having any more accidents.

3. Go easy on yourself when you do go out of the house

This is where the fabulous Potty Cover comes into play.  There are several other types of Potty Covers on the market, and I have used several of those.  Most of them do a great job with coverage.  Being larger than the paper ones that are usually in stalls, plus they usually stay still.  However, the Potty Chair stands apart from the other ones on the market.  Do you see the coverage on this thing?!  Seriously?!  Amazing.  The Cammo Love house gives this our stamp of approval!  5 out of 5 Stars.

I have been known to put a diaper/pull-up on my kid in the beginning of the potty-training phase when we go out.  Lots of people don’t go out when they are in the midst of potty training.  I try to stay home, but I’m a definite get out of the house, people person, type of person.   Doing what you need to do is fine by me, and don’t worry about what anyone else thinks.

 Potty Cover

 Even though I may not have done it exactly the way I had originally intended I stand by the firm belief that it must be as close to that idea, especially the older they get.   Its almost like they have a six sense about weakness.  If they can combine their need to be in control of their little bodies as much as possible, with sensing our weakness its a win/win for them.  Parenting isn’t easy, and potty-training is one of those not easy things.  If you stay strong and consistent and help them to realize there are no other options it will come easier.  This same technique works in the whole staying in bed, going asleep, self-soothing phases of life that come up.

What kinds of worries do you have about potty training, any questions?
Have you had a similar or different, but equally successful experience please share!
