Wordless Wednesday

I know that most of my Wordless Wednesday pictures have turned out to be more of a Throwback Thursday kind but I found some old albums recently and I have been scanning some photos.  Here’s a good one that I found this past weekend when I was visiting with my mom.

This is me back in 1980. I was so freaking cute – I wonder what happened over the past 33 years! I was only 3 years old here.  I see Ben in my smile and Sean with that look in my eye! Ha – I was probably plotting something here, you can just tell by that face!

Happy Wordless Wednesday to you all!

So here’s a little bit more about one of my sponsors as well as the girl with a great giveaway!

Paulina is not your average college student, she is finishing up her four year degree online. Since doing this her social interaction has dropped heavily, what does she do? Well, she gets three part time jobs so she can always be busy. The negative side?  Well there are a lot. Now there just isn’t enough time in the day and still have zero social life. So then came the blog, Simply Me. It has been her escape and she will admit her blog at first was a very unorganized disaster much like her life. But in the new year she is bring about change in everything in her life. She is getting organized, getting healthy, studying hard, working her tail off, getting social and even meeting a boy here and there. So basically after a few months about having a blog, Simply Me, she is finally taking action of actually doing that. Discovering who she is and talking about it all over the Internet. 

With this giveaway Paulina is letting us get a look into one of her jobs. Working in fashion, she started working with Chloe + Isabel in September and has seen some success, so just like her over achieving self she has also opened an etsy shop to help others stayed organized with it comes to their jewelry.

Chloe + Isabel…..

A few weeks ago after an ad space give-away I started chatting with another blogger, Paulina Dombrowski from discoveringsimplyme.blogspot.comAfter a few Facebook/email exchanges we realized that not only do we both live in New Jersey but we only live a few miles from one another. In the blogger world this is a rare thing. Normally, any new followers that I get are from other states and they have discovered me on other mommy blogs, blog hops or on Top Mommy Blogs (you know that little icon on the left that I beg for you to vote for me on every night). So it was nice to finally meet someone local.  After a few discussions I found out that she was a Merchandiser for Chloe + Isabel – a Jewelry Company. I did a little research and we both thought that it would be great to pair up for a product review and give-away   Right away we clicked and I knew it was going to be a fun post!

Well the piece of jewelry that she picked for me to review arrived yesterday and let me tell you I was pretty darn impressed. Well the post office damaged the box but once I opened it up I was shocked. The branding of the packaging and the jewelry bag were very impressive! Branding is everything when you are trying to sell something so right away I was thrilled.  Just look at how cute (sorry for the iphone pics). 

I didn’t even open up the bag yet to check out the bracelet but I already knew it was going to be beautiful.  And it was.  

The bracelet is called the Eclectic Rhinestone + Box Chain Bracelet and retails for $34. Here is a much better picture from their website. Let’s face it, I am a terrible photographer! But I want you too see that it’s just as pretty in person as it is on their website. 
The colors are gorgeous and the clasp was so simple to hook. I need something that I can put on by myself without the help of the hubby and this was easy. Oh and if your wrist is a little smaller or larger than the average, you will notice that there are two clasps to hook this into. So you can adjust the size without taking it to get re-sized or have it slide up and down your arm all night. I thought that this was a great feature! 
I am not a big jewelry person, only because the kids always pull and break my necklaces or bracelets, but I really enjoyed looking at her website and found a few things that I might have to break down and buy! 

 Chloe + Isabel just released their latest product line, The Duchess, on Tuesday and it’s been a pretty big hit so far.  I am off to check out the new pieces and to see what they have from running right now in their sale. There are over 20 pieces that are 50% off (see that clover ring below – it’s on sale right now for $22). You can’t beat that – even the full prices are so reasonable! 

Just take a look at these rings! How gorgeous are they? 

Here’s some more information about Chloe + Isabel from Paulina herself:
