Jessie Leon owns Sparkle Lake Jewelry on Etsy!

I recently came across Sparkle Lake Jewelry on Etsy and fell in love with some of her jewelry. One in particular called Gold Boho Mussel Shell Lariat Necklace and the Boho Mussel shell Earrings. It looks something similar to the earrings so it's the best that I can describe them. She makes her jewelry handmade and that is what makes it very different and beautiful. I love handmade jewelry it's very time consuming to the artist and I admire that and they do one heck of a great job at doing it because that is there passion.

I really love these earrings they aren't to long and just my style. They are very pretty because they have a beautiful color bronze look and I like that a lot. These are super light weight and it feels like I do not have anything on my ears to be exact. I can't wait to take these with me on my Cruise.

My full look of the necklace & earrings on. I will probably wear it with a better shirt next time maybe in black or something that can stand out much a little better, but overall I like it and it looks pretty on me.

I also got a pair of the Long Boho Lucite Feather Earrings with Sparkly Brown czech Bead to review too. I am debating on what to wear with these. I have not yet tried them on. I love the middle bead connected to the gold. I'm not to sure if I actually like the feather earrings. I'm a picky person when it comes to jewelry that is for sure. Sparkle Lake Jewelry has some great stuff for sure!

Walker's Hollow Review & Giveaway

Disclaimer: I was not compensated for this post. I received complimentary products for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

In the late 90’s I was thoroughly fed up with the lack of scent in the candles I was buying and thought “I can make a better candle then that”.  So off to the craft store I went and bought a paraffin wax candle making kit . . . to read more about Walker's Hollow Soy Candle Co. click here

I'm excited to introduce you to a company called Walker's Hollow Soy Candle Co. I recently got intouch with them because knowing myself I love candles and I love to keep my house nice and cozy and smelling wonderful. I was sent a few sampled products to review from there company. Above is some of the products that were sent to me which I was very excited for because all these looked really pretty and the colors were very nice and pastel which I love.

 This right hear is the Blue Hawaii Soy candle, and I am in love. It smells so beautifully like sweetarts in my opinion and it smells like a citrus juice that I had before but I can't quite think of it. It smells amazing though and I would get this again in a heartbeat. It reminds me of tropical tiki bar. 

I was sent three packs of soy melts for my Candle Warmer and I was extremely happy because I was tired of the same ones I had at home over Christmas. I needed some change and new scents. The one I used first was the Child's Play which smells amazing like key lime which I like the lime scent. It smells sweet and savory. I love it.

 It melted quickly about 10 minutes or so not very long. I love how it smelled when it was liquid. It made my whole kitchen/dining room smell lovely. The other flavors I received were Vanilla Bean & Banana Nut Bread. The Vanilla Bean smells just like vanilla and I would love to use that in my bathroom. I have to get a plug in warmer a small petite one for the Vanilla Bean, and the Banana Nut Bread is a very strong scent. I didn't really care for that one to much. I may let my mother in law have it for her candle warmer.

I got a chapstick too from there company. Love the way it goes on smoothly. Very good qaulity product. I have it with me everywhere I go. I also got two products for my car for scents. I got a cat & high heel which I thought was very creative as well. I would love to give them to my mom and one to my husband for there car so they can try these great products and enjoy the smell to freshen up there life a bit. I really love Walker's Hollow and I hope you will look at there website and purchase some great things. They are very affordable too.

Bar Keepers Friend Review

Disclaimer: I was not compensated for this post. I receive complimentary products for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

In 1882, an Indianapolis chemist noticed how clean and shiny his tarnished pot was after cooking rhubarb. Using an active ingredient that’s found in the plant he formulated a talcum-smooth cleanser and sold it to the city’s taverns. So pleased were his customers with how well it worked on bar fixtures, the product was dubbed the . . . to read more about Bar Keepers Friend click here

 I received a few samples from Bar Keepers Friend to review on my blog. I am always looking for new and improved cleaning products since we have our "own" home now. It's good to find good and nice cleaning products that are ideal for your household and I thought Bar Keepers Friend was different and I wanted to give them a try. I received the following products:

 It came in a nice sized basket full of Bar Keepers Friend products. What I was looking forward to most about these products is a spotless clean counter top and then some . . . We have a bar to in our house so the counter tops always need to be cleaned off. I was excited to use these on that as well.

My first choice I used was the Soft Cleanser to clean my slow cooker pot because I had just made chicken fajitas that night and the pot needed to be cleaned ASAP.

This product is a creamy texture and it's ready to use formula which doesn't need any mixing of anything just use as is. Although I was a bit concerned there was no soapy texture just a creamy texture. I felt like it wasn't doing anything like cleaning my cookware, but it was just a different formula then what I am used to using is all. 

Other great uses for this product would be for the bathroom such as the shower stalls, bathtubs, and toilets, so I will have to try it on those surfaces or my husband can read the directions and do it for me. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Our counter tops are always a bit greasy and just everyday grime we do many things on this counter top and my husband doesn't always clean up after himself, so I get stuck with usually wiping down the counter tops. I sprayed it and let it sit for a about a minute then used a paper towel or washcloth and wiped it away the messiness.

I can't wait to try the Cooktop Cleaner which helps get rid of those circled stains on your stove when your cooking and it over boils you can get those stains out with the Cooktop Cleaner. I am going to try lots of different areas of my house with the products I received such as the bathrooms.
 I'm excited to use some of these for my husbands smoker to get his shine back and make it look more presentable when he has guests over, he's had it for about 3 years so far now.

LovePendants Review

Robert Leser began his career in the early 70's as the third generation of a family business, now celebrating its 106th year in the industry. At first dealing in rough and polished diamonds with his father Jacques and grandfather Joseph, Robert’s career evolved over the past 41 years from internationally known diamond dealer to a name recognized in the U.S. for innovative jewelry design . . . to read more about LovePendants click here

Well I was introduced to a company called LovePendants to review on my blog. They engrave personalized lettering/wording on a pendant which you get to choose your own step by step process. 

Step 1: Engraving
Step 2: Gemstone
Step 3: Frame
Step 4: Type

You'll want to choose your type of actual pendant, charm or bracelet. I choose the Charm and I went with an Initial with my request on a necklace. I chose the letter N for my son Nicholas๐Ÿ’—

 It's an easy step by step process. I chose the Blue Topaz & Metallic Engraving for my Gemstone which is a beautiful blue. My son's favorite color is blue so it just matched well what I was looking for. It turned out really good to. They do such great fine work. Very detailed and neat.

 My Initial Charm Necklace. Isn't it beautiful? I love it and wear it almost anywhere I go. It's very sentimental to me. It makes me happy and it's full of love. The font they use for there personalized jewelry is Lucida Handwriting Italic. I personally think it's the best and looks very nice.


 Me wearing my initial charm necklace. They do such a great job engraving there lettering with a laser engraver. They also do other fonts but prices may vary a lot but well worth every penny. Since they do such an amazing job already in the font that comes with the charm itself. I'm loving my necklace a lot I've already gotten great compliments on it. My son always asks me why I always get things that start with his first name or name in general. I tell him because you are my first born and I love you so much. My life is complete!

Nutrisystem Week Three #NSNation

Disclaimer:  I received Nutrisystem complimentary in exchange for my blogging weight loss journey.

(Not comfortable with posting my weight online for everyone 
to see just my personal reference, sorry)

 Well I have finished out week 3 of my Nutrisystem Journey. Week 3 has been a lot easier because I am now learning how to eat properly. Learning more and more of what foods are smart carbs, proteins, snacks, etc. Week 2 went by really fast and the food has been incredibly delicious, and I can't believe I get to be this full on a diet. No lie. I sit and eat a meal say for dinner I had the mac & cheese with sausage one night for dinner with a side salad no dressing and I was simply full after eating that it was amazing, but I always have gotten full quite a bit after I eat small portioned meals. Stick to your plan and exercise a bit during the day and you will succeed without a doubt!

Almost every single thing that I have had this week was just beyond delicious and very flavorful. I only came across a few items I didn't like in Week 1 so I've been writing different likes & dislikes as I go along so it will be easier for me to stick to the great likes when I go and fulfill my order again. I must have different taste buds then others because the omelet I wasn't to fond over with the ham & cheese. The desserts have really been keeping me satisfied and I am loving the orange cream-sickle pictured above. 

 This past week hasn't been the best for exercise for me because I had to get surgery for a D&C and then my doctor put the Mirena in for me, so I have been quite drowsy and tired and resting from that, but overall I did get up a few times and tried to just clean up a bit and do small things because of that situation I was in. Next weeks progress will be a little bit more better. 

Until next time Week Three has been good. Come back and see Week 4 although I will have to recap when I come back from my Cruise on February 18th. I hope you have a great Valentine's Day!
