I know lots of you like to dress up your phones or tablets and I am no exception. Keka offers a great selection of Ipad Cases, Iphone, Kindle and Galaxy Cases I got the chance to review a Keka Ipad Case and I chose this cute cat couple in the rain. I love kitties so this was my top choice. There are so many to choose from it is really hard to decide.  You can also design your own which is really fun and adds extra meaning great for gifts!

Urban Peach Chevron Bangle Stack Review & Giveaway

Urban Peach gave me the great opportunity to review one of their lovely pieces. If you don't know about Urban Peach Boutique they are an online jewelry boutique with cute trendy jewelry pieces. They have necklaces, bracelets, watches and more. 
I received the Chevron Bangle Stack and I have to say that I am very happy about it. Not only did it exceed my expectation regarding the quality but they look amazing. You can use a one, a couple or all of them with any type of outfit. Chevron is still on trend and by the looks of it it isn't going anywhere. I wore my bangles to work and I got a lot of compliments.  
The best part is that Urban Peach was kind enough to give one of my readers. You must comment here What item from the Urban Peach Boutique is your favorite? (Please make sure you comment, I do read every single one of them) Like them on Facebook and that is it. I also added a few more for extra entries!

Sephora Mini Haul & More

I took a little trip to Culver City Westfield Mall and grabbed some goodies. I decide to treat myself since I do not have a lot of makeup (I get rid of items within periods). My first stop was MAC of course I got to have a lipstick every time. This time I got Fixed on Drama Matte color.

Shopping with Little Black Bag

You guys already know how much I love shopping and saving money while doing it. If you have not heard Little Black Bag is an online store that allows you to find items (shoes, jewelry, handbags and more) you can purchase them alone...still saving money or you can purchase a bundle. So the fun part is that you usually get 3 items. 1 you choose and the other are mystery. They unlock once you make your purchase. If you like it you keep them and they ship to you in days. If you don't you can trade with 800k+ members.

Epica Pet Nail Clippers

My pets are very important to me and keeping them safe and healthy is very important to me. I don't always have the time or money to take my dogs grooming like I would love to but with the Professional Pet Nail Clipper it is easier to trim their nails when needed. I know a lot of pet owners who are afraid to even touch there pets paws but I feel confident because the Epica Pet Nail Clipper are the perfect shape and size for my furry babies.

CasePics Custom iPhone Case

I got the great opportunity to try out one of CasePics custom phone cover. I went to their website and ordered my iPhone case with a cute picture of my doggy Nala. It was a fast and easy upload. I usually have difficulty with companies because of large file images but this time it was no problem. 

When I received it I was in love not only is the case of great quality material but the printing quality of the image is amazing.  

Edible Green Tea

I love green tea since I don't drink coffee this is my drink of choice when it comes to getting the extra boost of energy or even for the hot days. When I saw there was an opportunity to review Eat Green Tea I knew this was something that I would   be interested in. If you guys have followed my blog you know that I occasionally do juicing, I have a simple recipe for beginners here! So these leaves can be added to that juice and you are not making a drastic change in taste. If you enjoy green tea you might enjoy but if you don't there is a  slight  taste to it., but nothing you cant get used to.

Organizing: Jewelry


As many of you know I am crazy for the designer collection and I get my hands on a few pieces when they happen. This time there were so many items I would love to have in my closet. I love pieces that can be used throughout the year such as the beautiful handbag 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target® Mini Satchel with Gusset - Black. I did not wait 4 hours in line as I decided that is absolute madness! Butt I did go first thing in the morning. I was so disappointed to see that they were sold out completely in all handbags and accessories. So I did not get the handbag I wanted. The buzz was higher than that of Missoni's collection so I knew it was going to be hard to get. Regardless I spend a great day shopping for other items in the mall and in my opinion I think it is not worth staying long hours in line. Maybe next time.:)

Revolution Organics Lips Review & Swatches

I love natural organic makeup, I feel that it is a great way to look beautiful and staying healthy. Even though many of us ignore the chemicals that are in our favorite products, they are harmful in the long run. Anything from wrinkles to birth defects so I like to keep a balance between my makeup products. I recently heard of Revolution Organics and it is one of the few that provide customers with natural ingredients and organic materials.

Clutter Free with Music Magpie

My hubby is a DVDs and video game hoarders. Like you can imagine we have a large amount of DVDs, video games and Cd's we don't use. We have game consoles from back in the day and if I could get rid of them I would.

We recently moved from Riverside to LA and I found out how much stuff we actually had. Though it was a very short amount of time that I had to pack, I was able to separate all the DVDs games etc in a different box. It makes it difficult for anybody to move or even save space for other things when you have cabinets full of stuff. So I made it a challenge for me to get rid of some of the old stuff and I found the perfect way of doing so!

Elegant Touch Nail Wraps How to?

I love doing my nails and trying new nail art products but I have always been scared of nail wraps. Why? Mostly because I though they would not work, because they cant possibly fit my tiny nails, they might not last, or simply just too complicated! Boy was I wrong not only are these Elegant Touch Envy Wraps are amazing but I am in love! They save time and they are so easy to apply and remove. I am not a nail expert but I was able to use these with the simple package steps in less than 15 minutes.

Perlier Volcanic Thermal Spa

I love Perlier USA products, they are one of a kind products. This time thanks to Ifabbo I got the chance to try out the Perlier Volcanic Thermal Spa and it doesn't disappoint. So what makes this different from other scrubs? Perlier has extracted the micronutirents from the volcanic rocks that are essential to the cells in the skin. 
The larger rocks do not go away with water you can still feel them as you are scrubbing it against your skin. Unlike many other scrubs that dissolve, this one truly works and achieves making your skin extra smooth and removing the dead cells. At the same time the smaller rocks work with the thermal water to make sure you are left with a smooth finish! 
Volcanic Thermal Scrub has a retail value of $25 and can be purchased HSN.

You can get $5off on your Perlier purchase on using the code IFABBO5 
Follow @perlierUSA on Facebook and Twitter! 
Disclaimer: I received this product from Ifabbo for my honest opinion.

Nike Update

If you follow me on Instagram you might have seen a picture of my favorite Nike shoes ever! After 2 months of using indoor doing Zumba the left shoe started ripping apart. I had no receipt and it had been more than the 30 day policy most stores have. So I was pretty upset! So I went on Instagram and posted the image, my Instagram is linked to twitter and Facebook so the post went live on all three. A couple of days later I got a tweet from Nike customer service telling me to go their site link and see what I can do with the shoes or if there was a way to return them. Seeing that I had no receipt, I was able to report a claim.

What this meant was that I had to write what was wrong with the shoes, where I had purchased them, how long I have been using them. This was no problem because the shoes were relatively new with minimal stains, since I do Zumba inside.  So I send my shoes to their "warehouse" I paid for shipping of course but what I thought was that I would only loose …
