Go Geometric for Instant Wow

If you are trying to slim the face, go for big triangles. Oversize triangles on a longer chain form a V that directs the eye for a face-slimming effect. If you are wearing your hair down, consider layering one necklace over another -- stacking the shapes guarantees a bold, eye-catching look.



Tiny pyramids frame lovely features.  Fun, flag-like details with a pop of color pull the focus up to pretty features. Plus, a shorter chain forms a scoop that beautifully frames the face.



Pretty pentagons elongate the neck. Pentagons that get larger in the center form a U that visually elongates the neck for a graceful, swan-like look.


It's Cheaper Online

While going around the mall with my sister who came home for a visit, I had a chance to check the great polytune 2 for my son's guitar. I realized that he was right, the pedal tuner is cheaper online than in physical music stores. I should have agreed with him when he wanted to order then, but I just wanted to make sure that he'll get a better deal.

Keep Shoes from Coming Untied


You love your new sneakers and they feel great on your feet, but the laces keep coming untied when you're walking. If the strings are too short to double knot, you have to keep stopping to retie them which is a real hassle. The fix? Untie your shoes and dab a bit of lip balm on the spots where the knot falls. The balm will add a waxy film that causes the laces to stick together.

Valentine's Day at Home

Candle lit dinner, beautiful red roses with the exciting selmer student playing in the background in a posh restaurant was my husband's idea of a romantic Valentine's Day dinner, but that didn't happen because we got too busy that day and we didn't feel like going out anymore. What we did was just order food and stayed at home with the kids. We still had a great night and the following day I had a surprise....

Review: Leaf Cluster Stunner Earrings by Majestical Jewelry

I was recently sent a gorgeous pair of earrings by Majestical Jewelry for evaluation purposes.


I didn't know what kind of jewelry will be sent to me so, I got really giddy when I saw the small blue box.



Inside were a pair of beautiful Leaf Cluster Stunner Earrings! They feature a beautiful detailed design with four hanging leaves and silver hued metal. So graceful and elegant, these dangle earrings are perfect for every woman. The earrings hang approx 2.8".



I am not a jewelry person, albeit I have quite a few, I only wear them on special occasions. Well, except for my earrings; I can tolerate and I don't mind wearing them everyday.



I absolutely love the pair that was sent to me. As soon as I opened the box, I knew they were well-crafted using only quality materials.

You can purchase their stunning pieces directly from Majestical Jewelry. You'll be surprised at how affordable their jewelries are. And if you want to keep updated on their latest collections, you can like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.

The Nervous Wreck

Speaking in public was never my thing. That is why when I attended an event last week, and I was called in front to introduce myself, I was a nervous wreck. I'm sure everyone noticed the shaky voice from the kustom model kpc10m at WWBW when I spoke. But, apart from the nervous voice, I know I did alright. I was able to tell them a little something about myself without fainting, lol. Oh, I hope next time there won't be impromptu intros or speeches. I'd really hate to do that again!

Review: Timeless Glow Day Cream by Vita Aeterna Cosmetics

I was recently sent a package from Vita Aeterna Cosmetics containing the Timeless Glow Day for review purposes.



Vita Aeterna is a Canadian based cosmetics company specializing in anti-ageing and anti-wrinkle skin care treatments. The product sent to me was from their Auralift-GD collection, the latest breakthrough in anti-aging skincare. These creams have diamond and gold infusion because according to the experts behind these awesome products your skin can benefit not only from the latest scientific advances but also from nature's most precious metals and gems.

Cleopatra must have known then that gold can really make you beautiful that is why she slept in a gold mask to maintain her beauty. I've also heard about Diamond Peel treatments, the fast and pain-free non-surgical exfoliation of the skin using natural diamond chips to slough off dead skin cells, rejuvenating skin and making it look youthful. I have never tried any of these skin treatments because they are expensive. It's a good thing Vita Aeterna brought to us their new line of anti-aging creams; Heart Of The Ocean, Timeless Glow and Essence Of Harmony. Now, we can afford to treat our skin like royalty with these awesome products.

The Timeless Glow Day Cream was sent to me as I have oily skin; the other creams might not work with my skin according to them because they are rather heavy. Below is the product description.

Timeless Glow - The Age-Defying Collection




Full of antioxidant power, the products in this collection are ideal anti-aging treatments that help protect your skin from daily exposure to environmental stressors that dry and dull your complexion, Infused with Co-Enzyme Q and Resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant extracted from vines, this line is ideal to help prevent the signs of aging.

  • Helps prevent the signs of aging. 
  • Reduces signs of skin imperfections.

Core Ingredients:

  • AuraLift-GD™ 
  • Matrixl Synthe 6 
  • Syn-Coll 
  • Vitamin E 
  • Vitamin B3 
  • Provitamin B5

Complimentary Ingredients DAY:
  • Resveratrol 
  • Co-Enzyme Q 
  • Grape Seed Oil

My Opinion

The cream is very light and doesn't leave skin looking shiny. It also dries up pretty quickly and I like how my skin feels soft, smooth and supple after application. My skin is not sensitive, but there are some products that make me break out. I'm glad my skin liked the day cream and I didn't break out.

One of my biggest problems is dark spots. Using the day cream for a few days did help because a friend noticed that my skin has become brighter. I also noticed that the dark spots have become lighter. This cream looks very promising and I'm looking forward to using this cream more to eliminate dark spots.

I don't have wrinkles, but I do have crow's feet. I can't claim that the lines have diminished because it's only been three days. I am quite positive though, that they will improve with prolonged use.

Pros

It's a great moisturizer. My skin feels so soft and smooth without feeling oily. It has a nice packaging and it was sealed well to ensure the product will get into your hands in excellent condition.



Cons

To be honest, I don't find anything wrong with this awesome facial cream.

Recommendation

The Timeless Age Day Cream is perfect for those who are looking to delay the signs of aging. It's light, easy to apply and works with makeup, too. Shine like a diamond with Vita Aeterna's Timeless Age Day Cream.

Look Stunning with a Gold Watch

A gold watch is beautiful, luxurious, sophisticated and glamorous, and it easily adds appeal to any ensemble. A watch is an important part of women's jewelry because it doesn't only look attractive but it also serves an important function. A lot of us can't go out without it. Read on to find which look perfectly suits your style.

Casual Confidence



An oversize men's style watch in a classic Rolex-like design has a sportswear feel but is still very chic. Wear it loose so it jingles around the wrist like a bracelet, so it functions as an elegant accessory without seeming stuffy.

Bold Versatility



The mix of a sparkle-encrusted nautical face and a casual leather strap is a fantastic contradiction that makes this watch versatile and edgy. Pair it with a stylish dress for a funky look.

Flirty and Feminine



A dainty watch with a square face has a womanly, vintage vibe. And it can be worn high on the wrist and layered with bracelets to change up the look.

For a Band to Click

Being in a band is serious business. Believe me, it's not just about being good at playing your preferred instrument, it's also about creating awesome music with your bandmates and making that music known to people.

In order to do that, you're going to need the right equipment like an exceptional voice channel art at guitar center. It's a very good tool if you're planning to record your band's songs.
