Wordless Wednesday for May 30, 2012

It might be a few weeks along the line, but I just wanted to share one of my Mother's Day presents.

It's the one with the hummingbird.  My eldest daughter got it for me.  It looks so nice on top of the piano.

Happy Wordless Wednesday

REVIEW & GIVEAWAY Say Hello Diamonds Pantina Earrings 6/17

For centuries, women have loved to wear jewelry to enhance their looks.  I am no different.  I love jewelry—especially earrings.  I have a nice collection of earrings, too.  It’s not an extravagant collection, but it has earrings that I truly love.  I have just added to my collection not too long ago.  These new earrings are quickly becoming my favorites to wear—Say Hello Diamonds Pantina Earrings.

Say Hello Diamonds have the look of real diamonds, but at an affordable price.  The Pantina Earrings are beautiful diamond replica earrings.  Each stud earring  is 2 carats (7.8mm in width), which means a total of weight of 4.0ct.   Set in polished sterling silver with butterfly clasp, they dazzle on your ears.  These earrings are so fabulous, that they have been recently featured on Good Morning America, and the Today Show.   

What makes Say Hello Diamonds so fabulous?  
 “Each replica diamond goes through a rigid selection process by our Say Hello Diamond experts. These specialists analyze the weight, cut, and shine of each stone before it can be called a Say Hello Diamond. Each replica diamond is polished, packaged, and presented to our Say Hello Inspection Team. From there, our inspection team begins a 3-step review process; Look, Shake, Ensure. During this process we analyze the physical properties and test the durability of each diamond replica. Replica diamonds that meet the rigid criteria set forth are lucky enough to be called, Say Hello Diamonds.”


I have compared the Say Hello Diamonds replicas of the Pantina earrings to the diamond on my engagement ring.  I can’t see the difference.  The Say Hello Diamonds have the look, the depth of real diamonds.  These earrings just glitter with amazing color on your ears.  In the sunlight, the Pantina earrings just burst forth with beautiful colors.  I tried to capture some of the flaming colors that spring forth from these earrings, and you can see some of the colorful sheen that these earrings produced. The camera just could not capture the full brilliance that comes from the Pantina Earrings.

Say Hello Diamonds not only has earrings, but their website is filled with other wonderful jewelry: a Micro Pave Collection, Necklaces, Rings, Bracelets.  You can also sign up for their newsletter and be entered to win $150 worth of Say Hello Diamonds, and keep track of special deals.  Another great way to stay in contact with Say Hello Diamonds is to follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.

REVIEW & GIVEAWAY Uriélle Revitál-Treatment (ARV: $45) Ends 6/10

When you live in a hot dry desert, like I do, impressive soft shiny hair is almost an impossible task.  The sun beats down hard and seems to dry and frizz out our hair with the heat.  All the girls in my home, including me, want to have great looking hair that will have a brilliant shine and also be protected from those ruthless UV rays when we are out in the sun.   We need something that will condition and moisturize our hair.  When we don’t get enough protection from the sun, our hair gets dry, brittle, and just lifeless.

Lucky for us, I found a new product that will give great protection to our hair from the sun’s harsh rays: Uriélle Revitál—Treatment.  Uriélle Revitál has all the essential ingredients to nourish our hair, protect it from the harsh UV rays, leaving it silky soft and shiny.  It is a leave-in treatment that absorbs instantly into your hair.  Made with ingredients found the world over, it is the perfect treatment to dry frizzy hair leaving only a silky finish and a gleaming shine.


Uriélle Revitál uses only natural ingredients that are rich in vitamins, antioxidants, and fatty acids that strengthen your hair and increases its elasticity.  One of these ingredients is Marula seed oil which the Tsonga people of South Africa and Mozambique have used for generations.  Other important oils include jojoba, almond, olive.  I counted fifteen oils in all on the package.  Another noteworthy ingredient is Manuka honey extract.  Manuka flowers come from New Zealand, and some studies show that honey from this plant offers more healing  properties than other honey in the world.  As for an ingredient for fragrance—there really isn’t one.  With all the natural ingredients found in Uriélle Revitál, it has a natural light sweet fragrance that I find delightful. 

No Photoshop Required
I have found that my three girls have been using Uriélle Revitál over the past month regularly.  I hurt my neck about a month ago, and have only used it once this week.  All three of the girls love the way it makes their hair feel.  Below is J’s beautiful long red curly hair before and after using Uriélle Revitál.  As you can see, it has really improved the beauty of her hair.  J also loves how her hair is conditioned using this leave-in treatment.  Usually she has snarls in the morning when she brushes out her hair, but after using Uriélle Revitál, she can easily put her fingers through her hair without it getting all snarly.  I have a problem with dry frizz.  Uriélle Revitál has calmed my frizz, and has made my hair smooth and glossy like it hasn’t been in years (and I do mean this).   We all love the look and feel of our hair after using this remarkable leave-in treatment.  

Uriélle Revitál—Treatment is the brainchild of Uriel Yusupov, the co-owner of the prestigious Red Chair Studio located in New York City’s Upper East Side, an exclusive hair salon whose client list includes so many of the rich and famous.  Uriélle Revitál—Treatment  can be found online at www.urielle.com.  It comes in a 100ml/3.38 fl.oz. bottle and retails for $45.  You can also keep updated with Uriélle Revitál through Facebook and Twitter.


With many thanks to Uriélle, one lucky person is going to win Uriélle Revitál—Treatment.   Open to residents of the USA.
