press-sampleJoseph Nogucci contacted me a few months ago, and introduced me to their beautiful line of jewelry. Since then, I’ve frequently visited their site for the eye candy. The instant I spotted the new “Cuff” collection, I know I had to show it to you! This lineup of chain and beaded bracelets features a clasp that is shaped like handcuffs! It gives a bit of an edge and interest to any stacked wrist!

I’m going to admit something embarrassing. When I received this press sample from Joseph Nogucci, I’ll admit that I had NO CLUE now to open the gorgeous bracelet! I was stumped until I checked out the site, and saw photos of the clasp open online. So if you’re equally puzzled, I’ll help clarify for you.  Each “Cuff” can be pulled open when you push down on the lower portion of the clasp.  Just apply pressure and slide it out!  It’s that simple.  Online, the bracelet is photographed as if both cuffs have been opened and linked to each other before closing.  I found this really difficult to do, but as it turns out you really don’t have to!  Simply open one cuff, latch it around the other, and the bracelet hangs flawlessly on the wrist.  The perk of this method is you can open either side and fasten it however you are most comfortable!

The bracelet above is the Joseph Nogucci Stainless Steel Cuff Bracelet.  This style is 8″ in diameter closed (it hangs loosely on the wrist) and is a silver-toned stainless steel.  It’s also very popular, and currently backordered until early July!  Be sure to get on the list!

Joseph Nogucci Jewelry Review

Joseph Nogucci Jewelry Review

press-sampleI am not exaggerating. During a Phoenix summer, it’s too hot out to even wear a statement necklace. If you hope to accessorize at all, the best choice is a nice healthy stack of bracelets on the wrist. The team over at Joseph Nogucci sent me a beautiful selection of their stretch bracelets sample. They came housed in a giftable bronzy/orange box that features a magnetic closure to keep them safe inside, and a jewelry bag to prevent scratching during storage.

I’m a fan of mixing beaded bracelets with gleaming metal, and these beautiful pieces actually contain metallic elements, making them a perfect addition to my collection.  The bracelets above feature metallic accents like beads and charms, to tie the look together.  Keep scrolling for more photos, and information on how to score 60% off of your online order!

Must-see styles by Joseph Nogucci include the Lotus Wrap bracelet (that looks much more expensive than it actually is) and bracelets featuring sorority letters (c’mon that’s just too cute and a great way to celebrate the end of the school year).  Don’t miss the necklaces and timepieces either!

Booze Joulies

Booze Joulies Review

Booze Joulies Review

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogI’ve lived in the Phoenix, AZ area for about two years now.  Each summer, I stare at the fireplace and wonder if it will ever be cold enough for me to use it again.  In the winter, I look at our pool and marvel at the fact that in the summer, the sun heats the water to 90 degrees. This time of year it’s tough to imagine, but those hot 110 degree summer days will be here soon enough.  The only way to be comfortable outdoors during an AZ summer is to keep a cold drink in hand, and that’s where Booze Joulies come in.  Booze Joulies are the perfect solution to keeping your drink icy cold without watering it down!

How To Use Booze Joulies

How To Use Booze Joulies

To use Booze Joulies, simply pop them in the freezer the night before you use them.  When you pour yourself a drink, pop three of them in, and the drink will stay cold without melting ice changing the taste (and your enjoyment) of your drink.  I love to serve guests chilled white wine in the summer months, and that was the first thing that came to my mind when I tested this product.  Ice in wine is a major no no, but a glass of Sauvignon Blanc quickly turns tepid on a hot AZ summer day.  Booze Joulies are the solution!

Booze Joulies come packaged to perfection, and include a bag to keep them together in the freezer.  This makes a terrific gift for a wine enthusiast, or anyone who loves to chill out in the sunshine during the summer!

Click HERE to check out the entire Joulies product line!  Booze Joulies retail for $29.95 per box, but as I write this they are on sale for $24.95!

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogThe Cross Classic Century Medalist Ballpoint Pen has been added to my Holiday Gift Guide. In high school, I carried a Cross pen and pencil set with me in school.  Somehow, my gleaming 10k gold writing instruments made school just a little more glam, and a little less ordinary.  If there’s someone on your list who has an appreciation of the finer things, you really must shop the Cross collection of fine writing tools.
