Give Her A Beautiful 24K Gold And Red Crystal Rose


A lovely rose made of red crystal and 24k gold by Matashi.Real roses are beautiful, but they fade and have to be thrown out. This beautiful 24K Gold and Red Crystal Rose will never fade. It will be just as lovely 20 years from now. Probably a lot longer than that, with proper care.

This is a truly beautiful piece. It has two stems, one to a fully opened rose, and one to a bud. It is very well crafted. The leaves have the little ridges and the small petals under the bloom are there. The whole thing is shiny gold, with that lovely red crystal in the center.

Gold and Crystal Rose from Matashi Crystals.

The rose is bigger than I expected it to be. The dimensions are: 4.1 x 2.7 x 2.5 inches (weighs 4.8 ounces). It is very pretty and shiny. When the light hits the crystal it sparkles. I love it.

Red Crystal and Gold Rose from Matashi Crystals.I had to take it outside and let the sunshine hit it. Any light sparkles on it, but the sun makes it look like the crystal is sort of glowing, and the gold just sparkles. If I was gonna keep it, it would go on one of the window sills, so the light would hit it all the time.

But since my moms birthday is coming up next month, this is going to be one of her gifts. I’m pretty sure she will love it as much as I do.

It would make a lovely gift for Christmas, Mother’s Day, or Valentines Day too. I don’t think there is a woman alive who wouldn’t like it, so any occasion will do. Or none for that matter.

It comes in a very nice box that won’t even need wrapping.

Need Your Coffee To Stay Hot On The Way To Work?


Insulated Water Bottle from Futurespace Tech.This stainless steel insulated water bottle from Futurepace Tech will keep your coffee hot for up to 8 hours. Of course it will work just as well for any hot beverage, if you are one of those strange folks who like to drink hot tea.

I’m from the south so much more into iced tea. This water bottle can handle that too. It will keep drinks cold for up to 24 hours.

I love this water bottle. It is pretty, and it is also the best quality water bottle I have ever had. It is really nice.

It feels good when you are holding it.

My hand holding my insulated water bottle from Futurspace Tech.And of course you look good when you are drinking from it. Some of us more or less than others.

Selfie of me drinking from the Futurespace Tech bottle.I never tried to take a selfie while taking a drink before. It isn’t easy. And my hair was a mess. The bottle does look good though don’t it?

I have carried it around for more than a week now. It has gotten bumped on the counters, knocked into the floorboard of the car, and forgotten. I did eventually go looking for it. The water was still cold when I found it a few hours later. I have not left it out to see if it actually stays cold for 24 hours but I see no reason to think it won’t.

It has not dripped, or leaked, or sweat on me yet either. I did mention that I love this bottle right?

It is made of food grade stainless steel, and has two layers. The lid is BPA free and the bottle does not have a plastic lining.

It is sold on Amazon.com and you can buy it on the U.S. website or the U.K. website and has a 100% money back guarantee.

Great Gift For A Person Who Loves To Cook


Chefs Limited Cooking Utensil Set.This 6 Piece Kitchen Utensil Set from Chefs Limited would make a great gift for anyone who loves to cook.

It is good for anyone who only cooks under protest too. Those folks might even appreciate it more since it is easier to cook with proper utensils.

This set comes with a rotating stand for hanging the utensils on, so you can easily grab whichever item you need.

Promo picture of the 6 utensils in the Chefs Limited Set.

The set includes a Spaghetti Server, Slotted Spoon, Flipper Spatula, Whisk, Potato Masher,  and a Soup Ladle.

They are bigger than they look in these pictures.

Chefs Limited Flipper Spatula being used by me on hamburger patties.I used the spatula on hamburgers and it has a nice big handle that is easy to hold, and it is plenty big enough and sturdy enough to flip burgers easy.

I have also used the slotted spoon to stir and drain french fries.

My Chefs Limited Slotted Spoon and french fries.I don’t really get why it is called a slotted spoon though. It doesn’t have slots, it has holes. But either way it works.

I have also used the soup ladle, but didn’t get a picture of it. I love the soup ladle. It is big and holds almost enough for a full serving. It probably would be a full serving for anyone except a hungry man who wants his dinner and plenty of it.

I have not had a chance to use the spaghetti server, masher, or the whisk yet, but I will.

This is a gorgeous set of utensils and it matches my kitchen too!

These utensils are made with FDA approved Nylon Heads, and are heat resistant up to 410 degrees.

They have those little stands on the bottom of the handle too that keep heads from touching the counter (or pan) if you lay them down. I really like that.

Along with all that good stuff you also get a 100% money back guarantee.

Save Money On Your College Textbooks!

CampusBookRentals logo.When my husband was going to college a few years ago one of his textbooks cost almost $500. Most of his textbooks cost over $300. That is a lot of money to spend on textbooks. Especially if you are having to pay for them yourself.

If you rent your textbooks instead you can save up to 90% off the bookstore price! That is a lot of money that you could use for all the other things you need for college(a good calculator, notebooks, pens,transportation).

CampusBookRentals allows you to highlight in the books and the rental periods are flexible so you can pretty much rent a book for as long as you need it. The shipping is free both ways and they donate to Operation Smile with each book rented.

Operation Smile is an international children’s medical charity that helps children with cleft lip and cleft palate.

There is a new program called RentBack where you can rent the textbooks you have already bought to other students and get some of your money back.  RentBack.com has a search function where you put in the information on the books you own to see what they are worth.

Some textbooks are used for years so it would be worth checking even older books to see if they are still used. This is a great way to make money and help other students too.

Monetize Your Blog By Writing Sponsored Posts For Social Spark

Monetize Your Blog By Writing Sponsored Posts For Social Spark

set your price start getting paid with social spark

Edit : Social Spark is Now Izea Marketplace, and you can now make money off several of your social media accounts there, including Twitter and Facebook, as well as your blog.

Social Spark is one of the few programs that I have actually made money with.  I have reached the payout amount once so far amd I’m almost there again.

I like Social Spark for several reasons. One is that they use no follow links ins all their posts. That means you can’t get in trouble with Google! So if you are trying to get higher page rank this program won’t hurt you. They also include a disclosure statement at the bottom of each post.

It also works for Blogger and several other platforms as well as for self hosted wordpress blogs.

Another good thing is that you can set your own price. If you don’t want to bother with writing posts for less than $10 then you can set that in your account settings. You can negotiate the price of deals too if you would like more than they are offering.

They also have pretty good customer service. The only two times I have had to use it they got back to me within a day about my problem.

They only thing I didn’t really like was that you write your posts on their site and you have to give them permission to post to your blog. So you need to set up a special account for that. Just create an author account and give them the log in info for that.

In order to sign up you must have your own blog  that is written in english or spanish. Your blog  must contain original content, and must be at least 90 days old and have 20 posts that were writting in the last 90 days.

It also can’t have anything illegal, excessive profanity, adult content, or advocate anything illegal.

Their interface is pretty easy to use. If you do sign up for Social Spark I would appreciate you using my link! And holler at me if you have any questions.

 

Need An Inexpensive Cell Phone?

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of TracFone for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Tracfone has some of the least expensive phones you can get. They are great for summer use. Especially if you need several in order to keep up with the whole family.  You could spend a fortune on cell phones and contracts if you are not careful.

They have brand name Phones including Motorola, Kyocera, LG, Nokia, and Samsung. The one I have is a Motorola. It is an older model and I have been thinking of getting one of the newer ones.

We used ours when we made that trip to Michigan a couple of months ago. It worked all the way up there. We did not run into any dead zones on our trip. So I believe them when they claim to have great nationwide coverage in the U.S. The folk in t his video agree :

You can also make international long distance calls to over 60 international destinations directly from your TracFone at no extra cost. TracFone is the only wireless service where you can call internationally for the same price as normal calls. And in Mexico and Canada friends and family can use a local number to call you on your TracFone! This is great for families with members who travel out of the country.

You can also get  “Double minutes for the life of your phone” with some of the phones. With other phones you have to buy that separately but it only costs 19.99. I got one of those cards a while back. It was definitely worth it. It doubles whatever minutes you put on there each time.

I also love that you can just buy however minutes you need (or want)  and just tell everyone to make do with that number of minutes. That way you don’t have someone running up a huge bill. And if you need fewer minutes sometimes than others then you are not stuck paying for them anyway. I love not having a contract. These folks do too : real TracFone customers. The code cards are available just about everywhere. Many retail stores carry them including Wal-mart and Dollar stores. You can even buy minutes online. Very convenient!
