Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs: Diamond Edition Combo Pack Review!

7:30 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma




Who doesn't love the classic Disney movies, right? Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is one of my all time favorites! Disney lovingly refers to this movie as "The one that started it all" and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is being released from the vault for the first time in seven years. I remember going to see a special re-release in the theater when I was a girl. It is a classic story with a fairy tale ending, it was such a magical feeling being able to watch it on the big screen. Whenever I see this movie it brings back such great memories! I don't get to play with too much princess stuff being the mom of three boys but I was absolutely thrilled when I was given the opportunity to review the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Diamond Edition Combo Pack.

The Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Diamond Edition Combo Pack was released on October 6th. The combo pack includes a Blu-Ray disc as well as a regular DVD. Perfect for our family as we do not own a Blu-Ray player yet but plan to within the next six months. The combo packs are such a great idea. It allows families like ours to purchase a movie that they love in two different formats. This I personally love because the DVD can be given to the kids to use on the computer or in their room. Or in our case given to Benji. He loves walking around and holding DVD's, fun for him but horrible for the DVD. With the combo pack we don't have to worry that our only copy of the movie will be scratched up and ruined. I have also heard that the Blu-Ray discs are the most scratch proof and kid friendly movies and way better than regular DVD's.

It was so awesome to be able to share this movie with the boys. They were more excited than I was to see it if you can believe it. We watched it over and over again the first few days after we received it. Probably one of the funniest things that happened was when Oscar was asking me if he could watch it again and referred to it as "Snow White and the Seven Dorks"! I was laughing so hard because he seriously thought that is what it was called! You can't really blame him though because he has no idea what a dwarf is and you have to admit the dwarfs do act kind of dorky.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Diamond Edition has all new digital restoration with enhanced picture and sound. I have to say that even though I watched this movie on the regular DVD player it looked amazing! The colors were so vibrant and you could clearly hear the sound quality. I can't wait to see this movie again once we get our PS3, which is what we would use to watch Blu-Ray movies. Not only is the picture and sound quality up to six times better than a regular DVD player but the Blu-Ray allows you to be interactive with all the special extras that are included.

Here are some of the extras that are included with the Blu-ray Combo Pack Features:

Picture & Sound

- First time ever in high definition 7.1 sound
- Disneyview – expanded viewing experience
- All new music video performed by Sonny With a Chance's Tiffany Thornton


Disney Family Play

- What Do You See? - Decipher the scambled image
- Mirror, Mirror on the Wall – Which princess are you most like?
- Jewel Jumble – test your matching skills


Backstage Disney

- Snow White Returns – Newly discovered storyboards. Was Walt planning a sequel?
- Hyperion Studios – Explore Walt’s original studio
- The One That Started It All – See how Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs forever changed the world of movies


Classic Bonus Features

- Dopey’s Wild Mine Ride Game
- “Heigh-Ho” Karaoke Sing-along
- Disney through the decades
- And More!


My boys and I had such a great time watching this movie together. I can't wait to see all the fun that we are going to have once we get to play with the special features. I know that Oscar will love Dopey's Wild Mine Ride Game and Benji will love the "Heigh-Ho" Karaoke Sing-along. I really enjoyed all the interesting facts and the history behind the movie. For a night filled with family fun for everyone I highly reccomend getting the Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs Diamond Edition Combo Pack.


* The Snow White and Seven Dwarfs Diamond Edition Combo Pack that I received was courtesy of the One to One Network. In exchange I have offered my personal and honest opinion of the review item and posted it for my readers. *

PPM Birthday Bash Extension!!!!!!!!

2:52 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma

Pretty Pink Momma


Well, I have had pretty rough go of it this last week and due to circumstances beyond my control I was not able to post all of the featured guests for the Dirty Thirty Birthday Bash as promised. Fighting off the mother of all colds was just the beginning of my problems. I had intended to get everything caught up this weekend but then the unthinkable happened. My laptop crashed! I have feverishly been working to find all of my family pictures, important business documents and emails that were saved on my hard drive. Unfortunately, this task took top priority to all others. I am going crazy trying to figure it all out without losing all my precious memories in the process.

Due to this string of events I will be featuring my last three PPM Bash guests in the next few days. I have access to the internet and blogger is working just fine. Once I get my laptop in workable condition I can calm down and focus on those last few PPM Bash features/giveaways.

So, I have now extended the entry deadline for the Dirty Thirty Ultimate Birthday Gift Giveaway until October 28th. The three remaining feature giveaways should be posted within that time frame. This means that the winner for the Ultimate Birthday Giveaway will be drawn on October 29th!

Thanks so much for everyone's patience during this process. Hopefully if you didn't get a chance to enter the bash giveaway this will give you some more time.

Another PPM Bash Jewelery Giveaway this time from Twists and Facets!

1:09 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



Nothing is trendier these days than showcasing geometric shapes in a glam way. I love the bold shapes and beautiful curves that are created by the next PPM Bash Birthday guest, Twists and Facets.

Twists and Facets has a funky, yet sophisiticated style about their jewelery. This is my kind of funky! Twists and Facets has a variety of unique earrings and necklaces that are not only bold but brilliant. For me in particular, the wire wrapped pieces are my favorites. I also really love the dangly earrings and the big pearl necklaces too though! Below are some of my favorites that Twists and Facets has to offer.


I love this pair of earrings, Katrena's White Caged Pearls. These 1 ½ inch long earrings feature a 1 inch wire wrapped cage which encases 3 white pearl beads. I think that the wire wrapped cage effect is so unique. What an awesome way to display the pearl beads! This pair can be yours for only $7 - wow!





Another pair of earrings that caught my eye, was this Pearl and Crystal Drops set. These 2 inch long earrings feature white glass pearls, Chinese crystals and facets glass beads. The pearl and crystal combo is so pretty together. These earrings are simple yet carry a nice little funky vibe. Just my style! Twists and Facets can make these earrings in any color pearl you like too, so you don't have to be restricted to just the white. These beautiful earrings are only $8.






Check out this cool necklace! The Dark Grey Pearl necklace feature dark grey pearls linked together with an awesome, circular grey accent at the top that displays crystal beads in the center. This necklace definitely looks like it could dress up any outfit. This necklace is fully adjustable up to 20 inches, or you can make it as small as you like. Like Twists and Facets other pearl pieces, the pearl color doesn't have to be dark grey. They will make this necklace in any color pearl that you like. This fashion forward necklace is all yours for only $14.





If a wedding is in your near future, Twists and Facets can custom create jewelery for your bridal party as well. Whether you are thinking glass pearls, mother of pearls or freshwater pearls, Twists and Facets will make the jewelery to fit your needs. Earrings can be made in a variety of findings including clip-on. The prices will range in $5-$30 per pair depending upon what materials that you would like used to make the pieces. What a great idea for your bridesmaids attending gifts! Most every girl likes to receive jewelery - especially bridesmaids. All though it is an honor to be a bridesmaid it is always stressful because you want to make sure that the every aspect including the jewelery is uniform with the other bridesmaids. Twists and Facets can create a pair unique to each bridesmaid that still matches the overall look for the bridal party. Not to mention that it would be a very cost effective way to thank your bridesmaids for contributing to your wedding.

This is just a little taste of what Twists and Facets has to offer. Please go visit Twists and Facets to see what other great necklaces and earrings they have available for purchase. Remember if you see something that you like, but would like it tweaked just a little bit don't hesitate to convo Twists and Facets with a custom request. You can also follow them on Twitter for more frequent Twists and Facets updates.

Aloha Friday - Scary Movies

12:00 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani from An Island Life. Over there in Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So Kailani thought that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting, too. So, for Aloha Friday, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Answer my question and put one of your own up on your blog. Link up and check out other blogs that participate at An Island Life.


In light of Halloween coming up so quickly, horror movies are always being advertised. Do you like to watch scary movies?


I personally can't handle anything violent and blood filled. The suspense of the impending violence kills me more than the actual violence. Not to mention I would probably have nightmares just like when I was a little kid. I feel so bad for hubby cause he is always having to settle for the romantic comedies, or dramas because I seriously can't handle the gore. It has been a point of contention in our relationship since the beginning. My rebuttle is that I will suffer emotional damage and may possibly have nightmares if I watch some of the movies that he wants to see, which won't happen to him if he watches one of my type of movies. His response, "You don't know that! Maybe I do have nightmares from romantic comedy overload!". Ha ha, he's soooo funny :) So, that's why my question this week is do you like to watch scary movies?

Pretty Pink Momma



I would love if you want to help spread the word about Video Thursday and participate. Just grab the Video Thursday button on my sidebar and post one of your favorite videos, either personal or one circulating around the web. Don't forget to link up so I can check out your video!

Check the time stamp on the video, its a shocking 10:30ish in the AM! I can't even believe that those guys were planning on sending him on his way - they should have called the cops for sure. This guy must be seriously embarrassed that this was blasted all over the net, I know I would be.

Time to Indulge Yourself with Michelle's This and That Chocolate Covered Brownie Bites Review and Giveaway!

9:17 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


I'm gonna keep this Birthday Bash going by offering more desserts! Yummy, delicious, chocolate covered desserts that is! Its no secret that I love me some chocolate and if you have been reading my blog for awhile now than it should also be no secret that I love the chocolate creations designed by Michelle's This and That.

Michelle's This and That plain rocks it when it comes to creating all things chocolate. In case you don't remember you she created a gorgeous Mother's Day Chocolate Cameo Set for a super duper Mother's Day giveaway. To makes things even better she also created a very manly, tool inspired Father's Day giveaway. Plain and simple, she's the best.

Now I have been eyeing her chocolates since a little before the Mother's Day giveaway. Finally I had to give in and get some chocolates of my own this time. I can only subject myself to such torture for so long. That was May and now its October so, I think that I deserve props for holding out that long! Finally at long last I received my chocolate samples from Michelle's This and That - today! I quietly waited for my sons to get off to school and the little one to take a nap. Then it was all mommy time! I gobbled up the samples - chocolate covered brownie bites and chocolate cupcake lollipops. Yeah, that's right... I didn't share one bite! After all, I needed to eat them for review purposes, right? Mmmmmmm mmmm mmm. Good! All though I enjoyed both I have to say the chocolate cupcake lollipops were my favorite. I think that its just because it was straight chocolate and nothing else. You just can't beat chocolate goodness. Below is a pic of what I received. It all came wrapped in tissue and perfectly packaged.



The Chocolate Covered Brownie Bites come eight in a pack and you have your choice of milk, dark or white chocolate. Each one comes individually wrapped and tied in your choice of ribbon color. Eight of them can be purchased for only $7.

Like the Chocolate Covered Brownie Bites, the Chocolate Cupcake Lollipops also come in your choice of colors and each is individually wrapped and tied in your choice of ribbon. Three yummy Cupcake Lollipops can be yours for only $6.

Michelle's This and That has such an awesome selection of unique chocolate gift ideas. She can create chocolates for any special occassion that you may have. I personally think that she is a creative genious, and her ideas are sheer brilliance! Whether it is a bachelorette party, baby shower, graduation party or for a wedding, call on Michelle's This and That if you would love to add to the festivities with a truly unique favor or gift that will be loved (and devoured!) by all. Below is just a smattering of the yummy delights that Michelle's This and That offers.



Check out these awesome Witch Fingers which are molded onto pretzel sticks that Michelle's This and That whipped up for Halloween! These are awesome! What a cool favor to hand out a Halloween party, right? The ones in the picture are made from peanut butter and chocolate but these can be made in whatever colors that you want to fit the theme of your party. The cost for six Witch Fingers is $10. There are also some super cute Silly Spider and Goulish Ghost chocolate pops that are worth checking out too.



Michelle's This and That not only specializes in chocolate favors but also fantastic items that can add to festivities of a wedding too. The first one that I want to showcase is the very popular Custom Painted Monogrammed Parasols like the one pictured below. What a great idea! Not to mention a wonderful keepsake to remember your special wedding day. The parasol comes in white or ivory and you have your choice in colors for the monogram. One parasol will cost you $35. Due to the extreme popularity of the parasols there is a three to four week turn around time. You can rush it in two weeks for a fee of $10.



Another very popular item that Michelle's This and That creates are Custom Wedding Reception Card Boxes. These gorgeous boxes can be created in two or three tiers and in a variety of colors and fabrics. The boxes are adorned in a variety of flowers, ribbons and accents - depending on the taste and needs that are determined by the customer. What a great way to gather all of the cards that you receive separately from your gifts at your wedding. I wish that I had one of these at my wedding. I think a card or two may have gotten lost during the swing of things but a card box would have definitely saved the day for sure. Each box is custom made, and takes three to four weeks to create. The design process is very thorough to ensure that you are completely satisfied with your custom box. The Custom Wedding Reception Card Boxes range in price from $50 - $60 depending on how many tiers the box needs. Below is an example of a Custom Two Tiered Wedding Reception Card Box.



So there you have it, not only will you find great chocolate favors at Michelle's This and That, but very creative and special wedding favors as well. Michelle's This and That can create so many wonderful custom gifts for all the different wonderful moments in your life. If for some reason you don't see what you like just convo Michelle and she will be happy to create a custom order for you. When a special gift of chocolate and love is needed you can count on Michelle's This and That for the perfect gift.

For more information about what's going on at Michelle's This and That you can check out their blog, follow them on Twitter or become a Facebook Fan.

*There is still time to enter the Dirty Thirty Birthday Bash valued at over $300 worth of prizes! Michelle's This and That has donated a set of three of the deliciously sweet Chocolate Cupcake Lollipops to the Ultimate Birthday Gift!*

One of my favorite things to do to relax is to indulge in a soothing hot bath. Not that I get the opportunity to do that very often, but when I do, its SO WORTH IT. What makes it even better is adding a luxurious bath soap to add to the relaxation and enjoyment. The soothing aroma really calms my nerves and allows for total enjoyment. This where my next PPM Birthday Bash guest, Bodylicious Bath and Body Care, comes into play.

Family owned and operated since 2006, Bodylicious Bath and Body Care, prides themselves on their high quality, additive free, bath and body products that they offer to their customers. They do all of their own testing and love coming up with new products to share with their customers. Bodylicious Bath and Body Care can also customize soaps or baskets for you, which would make a perfect gift for the upcoming holiday season! Bodylicious Bath and Body Care products are available online, or in three different local shops located in Texas. They are: 18 Hands Gallery in Houston, Texas; Country Crafts & Collectibles in Wharton, Texas; and Spa 3 5 9 in Richmond, Texas.

Bodylicious Bath and Body Care offer their handmade soap in 18 different fragrances to choose from. They make and cut all of their soaps by hand with each soap weighing approximately 5 ounces. Their soaps are handcrafted with all natural oils and by using some of the best conditioning oils available, they will leave your skin feeling silky and smooth. Bodylicious Bath and Body Care takes pride in being a palm oil and phalate free company. All of their soaps are made with vegetable oils, nut oils, and moisturizing butters. Below are a couple of my favorites that I found on their site.


This soap is called Pink Sugar. Sounds delicious! The fragrance is supposed to be a sweet smelling mixture of cotton candy, caramel and vanilla. One bar is $4.50.



This one is Pomegranate. It claims to have a rich fruit fragrance laced with a subtle floral scent. Its no wonder that this divine looking soap is one of Bodylicious Bath and Body Care's top selling soaps. It is also $4.50 for one bar.











Not only does Bodylicious Bath and Body Care offer handmade soaps but also a variety of Bath Fizzies. The Bath Fizzies are available in either powder or ball form. There are 13 different fragrances to choose from. Each Bath Fizzy releases moisturizing oil and fragrances into the bath water that will create a super relaxing bath experience. Each Bath Fizzy Ball weighs approximately 4-5 ounces each are available for only $4. The 12 ounce bags of the Bath Fizzy Powder are available for $9 each.



Bodylicious Bath and Body Care knows that in order to enjoy a relaxing, stress relieving bath, sometimes wonderfully fragrant Handmade Soaps and Bath Fizzies aren't enough. Which is why they also sell simple and elegant, specially blended 11 ounce paraffin and Soy Wax Candles. The Soy Candles have ten different aroma options. The one that sounds like it would be my favorite pick is the Buttercream Cookies scent. I love the smell of fresh baked cookies in the house! One very chic aspect is that no matter what your favorite aroma is the candle wax will always be white and showcased in simple glass tumblers. Perfect for any decor! And just like their soaps Bodylicious Bath and Body Care can customize their candle fragrances in order to meet your needs. The Soy Blend Candles are available for only $6.50 each.

In addition to the main Bodylicious Bath and Body Care main website they also have a smaller shop on Etsy, Bodylicious Bath, that features some of the same soaps as on their website. As the holidays get closer Bodylicious Bath will feature more seasonal items that may not be available on the main Bodylicious Bath and Body Care site so you'll want to keep an eye out for the new additions that they will have coming especially as it gets closer to the Christmas season.

If you would like to get current updates on new products and ideas that they are currently working on you can follow the Bodylicious Bath and Body Care blog. Don't worry if you're into Twitter they are too so you can get all of your updates through Twitter if you want. So, what are you waiting for? Go check out Bodylicious Bath and Body Care for some naturally fragrant bath care options.

More Hot Jewelery with a Hot Pink Chick Gift Certificate Giveaway!

12:15 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


You didn't think I could go the whole PPM Bash and not feature a shop with "pink" in their name did you? So, here we go again with another red hot, or should I say hot pink, jewelery find on Etsy. I am loving all the different styles and pieces that I have come across during all of the jewelery features. I am so excited to tell you about my newest Etsy find, Hot Pink Chick.

Hot Pink Chick creates handmade and wire wrapped jewelery with sterling silver, antique brass, semi precious gemstones, Swarovski crystals and more. The focus of Hot Pink Chick's jewelery style is simple, bold and elegant. Unlike the other jewelery shops that I have featured during the PPM Bash, Hot Pink Chick focuses mainly on earrings, instead of necklaces and bracelets. Don't get me wrong - Hot Pink Chick has beautiful necklaces and bracelets, but much of the inventory is centered around the dazzling earrings that they have to offer.

All of the earrings that Hot Pink Chick creates are so elegant, so beautiful. Each pair is unique to the next, bold in color and in beauty. It is quite obvious from the pictures that Hot Pink Chick uses quality findings and materials to lovingly make each piece of jewelery. It was so tough to narrow it down to only a couple of pairs to feature. Below are two of my very favorites.



The first are these awesome Smoky Drop Earrings. These super sexy, smoky quartz faceted squares are wire wrapped onto sterling silver french hook ear wires. Dangling from each 2-1/4" earring is a gorgeous irridescent cream Czech glass teardrop. This pair can be yours for only $14.60.



The second pair that really caught my eye were these Plum Pudding Sterling Silver and Teardrop Czech Glass Earrings. These earrings are so versatile and can be worn at the office or for a fun night out. The stunning yet subtle lilac semi-transparent squared Czech glass teardrops are wire wrapped onto marquise shaped Bali sterling silver earwires. The teardrop dangle measures 1", with the total drop (including earwire) measuring approximately 2". This pair is available for only $14.70.

Hot Pink Chick's necklaces are just as stylish as the earrings that they offer. My favorite is the Indian Feather Amazonite Bali Sterling Silver Necklace, shown below. This beautiful Amazonite rondelle sits atop a handcrafted, Bali sterling silver decorative headpin. It is hung from a sterling silver ball chain measuring 18". This simply beautiful necklace is a mere $21.60.



Let's not forget the oh so amazing bracelets that Hot Pink Chick has in stock either! The Pink Steel Lampwork Glass Gunmetal Bracelet pictured below is my favorite bracelet pick. How unique is this bracelet? I am totally digging the light pink lampwork glass beads for sure! The textured gunmetal rings and connectors are an awesome contrast to the soft beads. This flirty bracelet measures approximately 8-1/2 inches and closes with a textured gunmetal toggle clasp. Yours for only $11.80.



Hot Pink Chick's fun, funky and flirty designs are a perfect addition to any outfit. Not only are these pieces affordable but Hot Pink Chick is adding new creations all the time. You definitely want to check back often to see what's new. Not to mention that custom orders and bridal parties are always welcome. Hot Pink Chick takes it one step further when delivering you your favorite jewels by offering FREE SHIPPING WORLD WIDE! I LOVE free shipping! To be honest, for me shipping charges is usually what stops me from buying online - unless I simply can't live without it. Its so nice when you run across an amazing shop and they offer free shipping.

Please go visit Hot Pink Chick today!

12:00 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani from An Island Life. Over there in Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that they take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So Kailani thought that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting, too. So, for Aloha Friday, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Answer my question and put one of your own up on your blog. Link up and check out other blogs that participate at An Island Life.


What's your sign?

Kathleen McGiveron Ceramic Art Giveaway!

10:47 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


Now that I have turned thirty high school seem such a long time ago. One thing that I remember about high school is one of my favorite classes - Ceramics. I really loved messing around on the pottery wheel and then experimenting with the different glazes. There is just something about creating something from start to finish with your own hands that just gives you a sense of satisfaction. I actually still have most of my ceramics creations still around the house in various rooms because I loved them so much and could never bear to part with them. I hope that one day I can get back into ceramic art, obviously my time is limited right now. Maybe by the time I turn Sassy Sixty I will have found more time to explore the ceramics artist within! For now, I will just have to settle for appreciating the works of others like Kathleen McGiveron.

Kathleen McGiveron is an emerging artist entering her third year at Emily Carr University and working towards a Major in Ceramics and Sculpture with a Minor in Art history. Once her degree in Visual Fine Arts is completed Kathleen would love to pursue a career as a professional artist and also teach art at the high school level.

For now Kathleen runs her own shop on Etsy, Kathleen McGiveron Ceramic Art. In this shop you can find all of her ceramic art creations including: wall art, tiles, candles and pendants. Her ceramic art is seemingly inspired by nature and the use of natural colors. Kathleen McGiveron Ceramic Art experiments with different designs and textures as well as an array of color choices in her works. This is most commonly demonstrated in her huge variety of ceramic pendants.


The pendant above was created by Kathleen McGiveron Ceramic Art specifically for the Dirty Thirty Ultimate Birthday Gift Giveaway. l love the dark coloring and the unique design on the ceramic pendant. Definitely a unique pendant.

The Whistler Ceramic pendant featured above is one of my favorites that is available at Kathleen McGiveron Ceramic Art. I really like the use of colors and how the blue is separate from the red and the rest of the design. This pendant 2" tall and 1" wide. It is made of white, earthen ware clay and is signed and dated on the back.

In addition to the 42 ceramic pendants currently available Kathleen McGiveron also has a clearance section of pendants that are all only $2.50 each!

I love the candles that Kathleen McGiveron Ceramic Art makes. She creates the pots that the candles sit in by producing them on a pottery wheel. The pots are made with a medium fire clay so that each piece will be able to take a lot of heat. Bee’s wax has been melted into the pot for an organic continuation of this unscented candle. After the candle burns through, the pot itself can be reused for anything that you like. Below is one of my favorites, Mirrored Stars, and it is availabe for $20.



Kathleen McGiveron Ceramic Art also creates tiles that can be used for a variety of purposes. From home decor to wall art the unique animal casts on the tiles are one of a kind. All tiles come in three colors: Dark Grey, Caramel, and Evergreen. All of these colors add to the natural feeling that the tiles create. Each tile is 4x4 and comes in a variety of different animal designs. My favorite tile is called Raven on a Branch and is shown below. Each tile is $18.



If you are a ceramics enthusiast I'm sure that you will love the artistic ceramic design of Kathleen McGiveron. Please go check out her shop, Kathleen McGiveron Ceramic Art.

*If you haven't all ready go enter the PPM Dirty Thirty Birthday Bash Ultimate Birthday Giveaway. Kathleen McGiveron has donated the ceramic pendant shown above to the Ultimate Birthday gift.*

PPM Birthday Bash continues with another Giveaway from Final Touch Jewelery!

9:53 AM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma


Its time to continue on with the Bash by celebrating with another awesome jewelery giveaway! Final Touch Jewelery has some great pieces of gemstone jewelery that you should definitely check out. Rose is the creative visionary behind Final Touch Jewelery and prides herself on her work and spends a lot of time brainstorming new designs. Rose has mainly been promoting her work at local craft fairs. I am a rock hound at heart so I love gemstone jewelery. Gemstones are all so different in shape and color it can really make for some one of a kind pieces that are sure to spice up any wardrobe.

Final Touch Jewelery creates necklaces, bracelets, earrings, watches, and bookmarks all with some of the most beautiful gemstones. In addition to the gemstones Final Touch Jewelery uses high quality silver and sterling silver findings and toggles that beautifully finish each piece. You can definitely see the love and care put into each design that Final Touch Jewelery creates. I love all the different, vibrant colors that gemstone jewelery has to offer. The color combinations are so awesome and they really are the "final touch" that can compliment a great outfit.

Below are a few of my favorites that I have picked out of the huge selection that Final Touch Jewelery has to offer. With 180 items for sale it was difficult to narrow it down and figure out which ones I wanted to feature.

You all know how much I love necklaces so I know that you're probably not surprised that I would feauture a necklace as one of my favorite pieces.



This necklace, aptly named Portrait of Beauty, is so fun and the color of the large turquoise nuggets really just pop right out at you. This 19" necklace is finished with fancy Bali sterling silver accent rope beads and a fancy rope type Bali sterling silver toggle. This amazingly eye-catching necklace is available for $70.



I also love bracelets, especially gemstone ones. Before I was a mom I used to collect bracelets and I loved buying new ones and matching them with my outfits for work. The Easy on the Eyes Onyx 8" bracelet, that is shown above, is definitely something that I would have picked in my younger, hipper, days. I think that the white onyx diamond shaped gemstones add a unique flair and really make it stand out. The gemstones are separated by Bali sterling silver accent beads and a matching Bali sterling silver toggle. This neutral toned bracelet that can dress any outfit up is only $30.



Final Touch Jewelery also has a wide variety of earrings too. I personally am just starting to get back into wearing the dangly earrings. I usually just keep my diamond studs in. I have small children though, so dangly earrings and little fingers aren't usually a good mix if you know what I mean! I do like wearing them when I go to work or for an evening out, away from the kids. The Ornate Sterling Silver Threader earrings featured above are simple and elegant. The sterling silver threaders are 2 inches long from the center hard shaped U, so they stay put. From there the ornate Bali sterling silver designed round bead is wire wrapped onto sterling silver fancy headpins and are almost one inch from the bottom loop of the threader. These super sexy earrings can be worn with anything! Get yours for only $20.

Do you see what I mean? All of the jewelery that Final Touch Jewelery has to offer is just as stunning as what I have featured above. All of the pieces offered are unique and one of a kind. To prove how dedicated to the customer they are Final Touch Jewelery offers a money back guarantee with every purchase. All items are shipped to you in a white glossy gift box ready for giving. Which is perfect for the upcoming holiday season if you have a jewelery lover on your Christmas list! Please go check out all of the other great pieces of jewelery, including the watches and the bookmarks, that Final Touch Jewelery has to offer - you won't be disappointed.

*If you haven't entered the PPM Dirty Thirty Birthday Bash Ultimate Birthday Gift Giveaway yet there is still time! Final Touch Jewelery is offering any pair of earrings, winners choice, as part of the Ultimate Birthday Gift Giveaway!*

Final Touch Jewelery is offering one lucky Pretty Pink Momma reader their choice of any one pair of earrings valued at $20 or less!

"Not So Scary" Halloween Review and Giveaway from YouCanMakeThis.com

12:01 PM Posted by Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma



I have never really considered myself to be a crafty kind of gal. I have always aspired to be though. It isn't until now that I am older and I have the patience to see things through and take the time to learn from start to finish how to do something the correct way that the artist inside has now begun to flourish. In the early stages of my artisic discovery I came across a wonderful site, YouCanMakeThis.com.

If you are like me I am sure that you have wondered at least a time or two "That _____ looks so cute and simple I wonder how they make that?" Well, YouCanMakeThis.com answers that question. This super fun site was created by a stay at home mom that wanted to create a place where normal everyday women could go to learn how to make items for their homes and families. YouCanMakeThis.com has step by step instructions for many projects that have easy to follow E-Books with pictures that guide you through the entire process so that even the most "craft challenged" person could learn to create awesome stuff. They also have simple and easy projects for kids to do as well. The e-Books are available to purchase for very nominal fees that will vary depending upon the project. YouCanMakeThis also offers a ton of free e-Books as well to get you familiar with the process and what to expect with an e-Book that you might decide to purchase. With new e-Books being added all the time the possibilities are endless.

Lets say that you are a talented designer, in addition to learning new projects you can also teach others how to make and design your unique products. I think that one of the most awesome things about YouCanMakeThis is if you are really experienced at a particular craft they offer a Designer-Author program where you can share your skills in an E-book of your own and gain a profit for doing it.

YouCanMakeThis is perfect for learning how to make gifts for the upcoming holidays. Just think of all the great things that you can make for your friends and family. The best part is they will appreciate the time that you spent to make them something instead of just buying them something store bought. There are literally so many items to choose from to make your head will spin just trying to decide which one of your favorite items you want to try first!




Tutus are a very popular choice for a Halloween costume. I was given the e-Book for a Fancy Filled Tutu for review. This e-Book in particular costs $7.99. I have always wanted to learn how to make a tutu because I think that they would make a great gift for my neice. The Fancy Filled Tutu e-Book is a very clear and easy to follow guide on how to make a filled tutu. The pictures are very clear, concise and easy to understand. Step by step it takes you through the process from start to finish. I have not had the time to try to make one yet but I did read through all of the instructions. It does require some use of a sewing maching for this project in particular, but even I understood the directions - and I am definitely not a sewing pro. Tutus are so popular among little girls, so I am really thankful to have this tuturial and I can't wait to try it! Not to mention that there are 40 different tutu recipes included in the e-Book to get the ideas flowing.

I absolutely love YouCanMakeThis and I just know that you will too! It is one of my very favorite sites, period.

You can win a Halloween e-Book bundle valued at $50! Included in this bundle you will receive:


Fancy Filled Tutu with Bonus 40 Tutu "Recipes" (as shown above)
Just a Little Something for a Happy Halloween Table Runner


How to Enter: Visit YouCanMakeThis and comment back on this post telling me what your favorite e-Book is that YouCanMakeThis has to offer.
