Colorful, carefree, light, breezy, fun, cheerful, and forever are my descriptive terms when looking at this lovely handcrafted infinity bracelet by G.Dots. This is noncommittal glamor. It can dress up any look, going from day to night, and the look is modern and fresh with an eye to the vintage.
I love that this sort of glamor is accessible to everyone. It is affordable, but there is nothing cheap in the quality and look of this jewelry. It is a splash of color and fun. You can buy multiple pieces and still buy the dress to go with the look!
This infinity bracelet was made especially for the attendees of the GBK Pre MTV Movie Awards gifting suite. A member of The Artisan Group, you know when you are purchasing these darling adornments that you are purchasing quality and soulful craftsmanship.
I am only sorry that the photo is out of focus. The silver piece is so shiny that the light kept playing tricks with my camera! I love the look of this bracelet because it can be pared with a great suntan, beachy print dress and a pair of flip flops or it can travel into night with a slinky black number and sky high stilettos. the turquoise leather is a crowd pleaser and the silver infinity clasp is strong and of a good quality. It is sure to catch some eyes and create some conversation.
Creator, Sharon Gibbs keeps a sharp eye on the detail of her designs and it is clear that she takes great pride in the creation of each unique piece.  These items are crafted with the finest quality leather, Swarovski crystals, fresh water pearls, base metal, and pewter beading. G.Dots boasts a unique and cheerful collection of trendy and fashionable adornments and it is clear that Sharon is a craftswoman who has her eye on fashion and current trends when finding the inspiration for her jewelry. Based in Massachusetts, G.Dots is proudly made in the USA!
This fashion forward, fun, and trendy infinity bracelet is available for $21.00 on the site, and that makes it easy enough for you to treat yourself and your BFF (to infinity and back!). The Celtic Love knot antique Leather Bracelet in red is another show stopper, and worth a stroll to the etsy store, for a cool $26.99. These pretty bracelets make the most beautiful gifts that will be loved and worn years and years from now.

I love nail polish, but I really need to stay away from the dangerous stuff with pthalates, toulene, and formaldehydes. Actually, we all do. I am not a nail biter, but the stuff does get ingested and it is the catalyst for many unhappy diseases and maladies.

Seven and Parker is creating some incredibly gorgeous, lush innovative colors, and they are safe! If you have babies, they can play with your fingers and toes without us fearing that they will ingest some of the toxins associated with nail polish.

Either way I look at these polishes, I see them as very rockstar chic. They are ultramodern and youthful. They are not supeglossy, nor are they flat. There is just enough gloss to make the accents of color sparkle and show through.

A member of the Artisan Group, Seven and Parker was founded by a woman who couldn’t find the right shades of nail polish to suit her penchant for proper tonalities. She began by crushing eyeshadow into clear polish, only to find that was not a workable option. She then became serious on her quest and learned about the art of creating a good and lasting nail polish that would be safe to wear and ultra pleasing to the eye.

She named the company for her son, Seven, and if another child comes around the corner, that child will be Parker! Cute!!! Well, Seven and (future) Parker can safely play with the pretty colors on Mommy’s hands and feet because these polishes are totally 3 free!!! So awesome.

Better yet? These lovely colors are vegan! Yes! No animals were harmed, and that is a big factor for me when I purchase my cosmetics.

These two are currently my favorite colors. They will take me right into the fall with the runway color palate set before us. The dream purple color is aptly named, “Let Me Be Your Ruler.” and the holorgram green color is “Queen Bee.”

The photos actually don’t do these colors justice, so I have photographed my fingers with two coats. The first coat goes on with a sheer hint of color. “Queen Bee,” has more of a gold base than you would think and it compliments most skin tones. The second coat, though opaque, reads more of a gilded golden green. In sunlight, it looks gold. In less light, the green shows through. Very cool. It is not a dark green, like it looks in the bottle, but like I said, a gilded, golden green. Perfect for a tan and your gold jewelry.

Conversely, “Let Me Be Your Ruler,” is quite true to the color in the bottle. The first coat is a sheer lavender with fine gold and turquoise flecks that dance in the light. The second coat is an opaque, true royal purple/lavender. The turquoise flecks are ever so subtle, but you can see them in the sunlight!  I would actually pair this color, optimally, with a pinker skin tone and black clothing and silver jewelry.

At $12.00 a bottle, these luscious colors are a steal. There is a variation of every color under the sun, and eventually, I will try them all. They are show stoppers, and worth a try.

How might you commemorate a special moment in time. A birth of a child? A wedding anniversary? A graduation? A special accomplishment? My mind immediately goes to a piece of finely crafted jewelry that makes the statement in a very special way. Flirt and Flutter jewelry is crafted with your unique occasion in mind. The jewelry is beautiful and the the lines are clean, so this special piece can be worn daily, either to adorn a special outfit, or simply to remind you of the unique moment that brought you this highly personalized gift.
Handcrafted in Pennsylvania, the designers of this jewelry, keep an eye to the eco friendly, using only recycled silver. The molds are made of non-toxic materials and the packaging is made from recycled products. Even their website is powered by wind power! 
I find the sweet irony in the fact that this company that prides itself in creating a minimal eco-footprint, creates such a gorgeous piece of jewelry by casting your hand and footprints in the design of their pieces. You can opt for just one print, or multiple! There is a pretty heart pendant on the site that boasts a print on it - now, consider your print and the one that you love on it, creating a one of a kind keepsake and declaration of undying love. How about the fingerprints of children, gifting the heart to Mom for a very unique and tear jerker of a Mother’s Day gift? You can even stamp the back with a simple character on the back, like a name or a date. When you purchase this necklace, a fingerprint molding kit will be sent to you. When you send it back, your special keepsake will be cast. Prices start at $125.00 - and bear in mind these are true silver pieces. These timeless designs are truly eternal.
My dog drives me crazy with love. I am nuts for her sweet soft face and the sniffy nose and puppy kisses. As you know, dogs are able to read emotions, physical illness, and learn about all their surroundings through their noses. Their noses are the most amazing piece of living technology. They sense what we cannot through their cute little noses.
Flirt and Flutter recognizes that our pets mean sometimes more to us than some family members - and so they have created a very special keychain to celebrate that bond. It is beautiful and adorable. It is bound to strike up a conversation about your beloved puppy or kitty, so watch out!
The creators do a better job describing the keychain than I do,” For heart-shaped pendants, each side of has a different puppy’s paw pad print – perfect for those of us who have more than one furry friend. Each paw pad is shaped in silver and then hand-cut and formed in the heart shape you see in the sample photos. Initials can be hand-stamped on the back so you know whose pad is whose – or, if you’d prefer, I can stamp full names or a short message.” Just as with the fingerprints, you will be sent a die to cast your sweet furry friend’s paws and nose. 
If you are simply interested in purchasing a one of a kind design without the personalized prints, look no further. My necklace, pictured above, is cast in that same fine quality recycled silver and the inscription reads, “thrive, grow, swag, brave.” good mantra! There is also a vast selection of sheet music jewelry designs, created to the tune of your special occasion!
Think ahead when ordering because the average production time for the personalized print pieces is 4-6 weeks. These are very special pieces that you will find nowhere else, and you are, in a sense collaborating to create a design unique to only you. This is not an overnight process, nor should it be! These are true heirlooms in every sense of the word, and you are not only preserving history, but a very special memory in your one of a kind creation.
Flirt and flutter is not only a member of The Artisan Group, but their work has been spotted on celebrities attending the Emmys and MTV Movie Awards GBK Gifting Suites!

"Kiyi Kiyi is an endangered Lake Superior freshwater fish. Kiyi Kiyi products help keep our freshwater clean and free of pollutants."  What a wonderful name in which to base the philosophy of your business! Kiyi Kiyi is a soap company based in Minnesota, using locally sourced and organic ingredients coupled with custom blended scents.
I love the list of ingredients in this small but mighty Oatmeal Milk and Honey soap: olive oil, coconut oil, goats milk, organic honey, sodium hydroxide, ground oatmeal, and fragrance oil. This soap smells fresh off the farm, and I love it! It is creamy, smooth, sweet, and super antiseptic, yet hydrating.
The Kiyi Kiyi soap is made in very small, handmade batches. I would venture to say “crafted,” rather than “made,” because this soap is truly perfectly crafted as work of art, by rite of all of our senses. Don’t be fooled by the size. If you are like me, you will get at least a month of pleasure out of this incredibly scented and hydrating soap.
Being a heavy researcher on all natural items that do our skin good, I have found that goat’s milk is the most hydrating and body smoothing. This is the closest to what Cleopatra would have used for her beautifying milk baths, and it most definitely leaves you with a visible difference in skin quality if you use goat’s milk regularly when bathing. It is what gets you glowing.
In need of hydration yet, antiseptic qualities? Coconut milk will cleanse your pores but leave you hydrated, and not oily. Oatmeal will intensify the pore cleansing and keep you free of blackheads and oily sebum.
This is truly all natural miracle soap, and the best news is that you are not putting anything dangerous back into the environment as you cleanse. I love this!!!
Kiyi Kiyi is a member of the Artisan Group, which as you know, I am a big fan of. Celebrity attendees of the GBK MTV Pre Movie Awards Gifting suite were all treated to a bar of this luscious soap, and wow - how lucky! This soap is truly a gem.
My soap is a small representation of the beautifully crafted soap Kiyi Kiyi produces (as well as other equally as healthy skincare, including lip balms,lotions, and gift sets). You need to visit the site to get a glimpse of the “Scrabble Lover Soap,” or “Galaxy Groove Soap,” or even the “Gardener’s Scrub Soap”…and the “Argan Herbal.”  These soaps are tremendous, and they are amazing works of art, suitable for giving as a stand alone gift, for say, the neighbor who watered your plants while you were away or the hostess who created a gorgeous party or the friend who deserves a little pick me up love. Soaps are generally $7.00, much bigger than mine pictured, and definitely a STEAL!

Rock and Hardware Jewelry is simply the most perfect gift for your man, your woman, your friend, your loved one…YOU! I have been a faithful follower of Rock Hardware for some time, and I love my collection of bracelets. I wear them according to my moods and the seasons. 
This bracelet is especially relevant right now, to me, considering we are all sporting sun kissed skin and light, earthy, airy sundresses. This bracelet has that earthy, beachy look, and I have worn it on my wrist - and on my ankle!
There are so many other colors and styles to choose from at Rock and Hardware Jewelry, and I am building my collection deliberately, so I can stack a few on my wrist in a splash of color and originality.
The gems are smooth and polished, and they really feel good against your skin. They are cool and gentle on a hot day. These are perfect to give your adored on their summer birthday or as a thank you treat.
I would even consider a bracelet like this as a gift for the man in my life, given the earth tones and weathered leather links. I just can’t let go of this bracelet, though, because it looks so good on me! It goes with everything I am wearing, and it pairs nicely with gold and silver - blacks, and browns and all colors in between!
A look at the Rock and Hardware site, and you will find that there are plenty of stone cold cool options for you to give to you or your loved one.

I am in love with Soap Revolt Naturals. These products really speak to me and my lifestyle. Soap Revolts Naturals, a member of the artisan Group, is a grassroots soap and body shop that hand makes each of their products. All of these products are safe and healthy for your skin.

This oil, in particular, smells amazing after a day on the beach, and goes on like silk. It hydrated my skin for a full day and eve, when I applied yesterday. I am coming off the heels of an awesome beach an poolside vacation in the desert, where the sun is blazing right now. I was a good little sun goddess and applied tons of sunscreen quite frequently. Nevertheless with all the sun and swimming, I got a dark tan and my skin is now super dry and flaky. This oil not only soothes, but it is evening my skin tone. I believe it is because this oil is rich in vitamin E and essential fatty acids.

I had to display the ingredients list, so you can see for yourself - My skin is thirsty for these oils! I put a little on after a shower, while my skin is still wet, the pat dry. Mind you, a little goes a long way with this. The residual scent lasts for hours if it is warm outside. I’m just fine with that because the vetiver and vanilla smells soft and sweet and luscious. My BF loves the scent - and I can’t complain with that!

These oils would also be great for after shave!

The attendees of the GBK Pre MTV Movie Awards all received a bottle of this oil and the story behind it. Hollywood has really gone green in terms of skincare, as a result of all the effects of the allergens so many ingest here. Celebrities, who need to be obsessed over the health of their skin, can get behind a product like this, given the health benefits and lack of toxins and allergens present in the products.

Owner, Jean, explains that after being diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, she did extensive research only to find that our skin absorbs 60% of all products that are applied. “An accumulation of toxins leads to cell damage, disease, and even cancer. So what goes on our body is just as important as what goes into it.”

Armed with this knowledge and a “Can do” attitude, Jeanstarted to make her own products. Her friends loved them so much, she opened her Soap Revolt Naturals shop! She has been on the fast track to keeping men and women looking great with a healthy glow and feeling healthy.

Check out the website - You can find something for every one of your skin needs! There is even a special section dedicated to men! The BF is getting a gift set for his birthday ($38.00) - Mustache? Beard? Soap Revolt Naturals has you covered with conditioning oils and waxes!

Women can enjoy a huge selection of soaps, oils, cleansers and balms! My Veitver and Vanilla oil is $20.00 for 4 oz., and like I said, a little goes a long way. You can use this for everything - body, hair, face…Even cuticles!

Who hasn’t dreamt of being the Little Mermaid at least once in her life? For me, the dream comes back every summer, and at least a few times, , I dress in my rendition of the lady of the sea who exchanged her flipper for feet. I dream in shimmery gold, dark sparkling agate, and blue azure.

Dollipop Cosmetics made my dream come to life, in part, and I am in love with these sparkling minerals. I just wore them out to the beach club and I felt the spirit of the magical mermaid from within. My favorite colors, true, and very saturated. Looks so smoldering and no skin problems because they are glorious minerals!

Dollipop is a member of The Artisan Group and these mineral eye shadows were gifted to MTV Movie Awards attendees and recipients. These lovely shadows have likely been seen on the red carpet dozens of times since they were received. The colors will compliment any eye and there are a multitude of ways they can be worn - you decide how saturated you would like the color to be.

I do suggest using a shadow primer before applying the minerals, as they will wear all night with a primer and they won’t end up giving you the walk of shame look.

That said, mineral pigments are the best kinds of makeup you can use on your face, as it is natural and non-irritating - you can even sleep in Dollipop!  Think of how much time we spend washing treating, and moisturizing our faces, and then consider how we damage our skin with makeup that has talcs, mineral oils, micas and aluminums - and ingredients that we would never consider washing our faces with, much less inhaling or ingesting! This why we must take the care to collect and use makeup that is safe and non toxic. It will give your sin a fighting chance against breakouts, premature aging, and hyper pigmentation.

That said, These colors are true to the package and they are rich and shimmery. Best of all, they are made in the United States and they are so much more affordable than even the drugstore brands of cosmetics that might not be so healthy to wear!

Dollipop eyeshadows in full size retail for $5.00 a pot and if you are on the fence about minerals and wish to try a selection of colors (and trust me - there are TONS OF COLORS to choose from!), you can get a sampler pack for $10.00. That is a phenomenal price for the best quality eyeshadow money can buy.

Here is a statement from Dollipop founders, sisters, and creators, Jen and Liz, ” We whole-heatedly believe in offering our customers the best quality products, made right here in the USA, with FDA approved ingredients. WE care about your skin and your eyes. You can rest-assured that our products were made in a safe, clean, and sterile environment. We have heard some horror stories about other indie cosmetic companies like customers finding their jars half empty, not labeled in any way, or even companies using things like soap-dyes in their shadows and unsuspecting customers suffering eye injuries because of this. YIKES!

My latest obsession is beauty through simplicity. I am enjoying delicately crafted jewelry that accentuates a woman’s natural beauty, rather than jewelry that grabs all the attention and diverts the eye. Think: attract the eye, instead!

Little Hill Jewelry, a member of The Artisan Group, is built on that idea. Delicate, simple, and light are the qualities each piece of Little Hill Jewelry possesses. Simple and clean and just enough sparkle, in my opinion. This is what attracts the eye, and “amplifies the beauty,” as owner and founder, Heather Jean aptly phrases it.

These lovely delicate bangles tell the story of song and stars - The ephemeral dreamer is what I see in this particular trio of bangle bracelets. It makes sense that these were gifted to MTV Movie Award recipients and attendees. The shimmer of the copper and gold are not overpowering or heavy, but quite the opposite, light, shimmery, sparkly - gracing the delicate wrist bone and soft glowing skin. Ladies, this is the perfect summer jewelry for bare skin and warm summer days. It is not clunky and overwhelming - It is light and simple with just enough flash.

The beauty of these bangles is that Heather Jean will take your bangles and personalize them so they possess the symbols or letters that speak to your story…Or the story of that friend or loved one. This would make the perfect wedding jewelry - especially for the gals in your wedding party, to mark the day. These bangles retail for $40.00.

Speaking of wedding jewelry, Heather Jean prides herself on the vast collection of personalized wedding jewelry that has a very popular following.

"For me, creating handmade, artisan jewelry is a powerful experience. When I make a piece for someone, I get to be a small part of their story—the engagement ring, the birthday earrings, the graduation necklace—when people buy my jewelry for these occasions, I get a chance to share in their joy and create a piece that will hold memories they can cherish for years to come."

These are the words of a craftswoman who cares deeply for every piece she creates, individually, and this is what I look for when purchasing a special piece of jewelry for myself, or for a person I wish to give a special gift. There is love and quality the goes into every piece, and that is most important when it comes to the overall quality of the piece.

The most popular piece is the Infinity Link Necklace, which was featured on The Vampire Diaries. There is no question as to why this is such a popular piece - It is a statement of timeless, limitless love and grace. The retail price is only $35.00 - and the quality transcends the price. This would make the most beautiful gift for the person you love beyond words, or time, or action.

I am so happy to have the opportunity to introduce this rising star in the field of jewelry design. She built this line on a simple philosophy, and it resonates for so many - ” My jewelry may be small and simple, but the connections and stories I get to be a part of…that’s big to me. And definitely beautiful.”

I am truly in love with these earrings. Every so often, I find a pair of earrings that become my default, go to pair. They are beautiful, attract a lot of compliments and they go with everything. These beautiful little baubles are created by jewelry designer, Heidi Kinally and they simply work with everything. They aren’t gaudy or overpowering, yet they attract attention in a very demure way.
Heidi Kinally, a member of The Artisan Group, gifted these earrings to the MTV Movie Awards attendees, and I am guessing that these were a favorite amongst the scenesters. They are simply so expertly crafted, and the look and feel are quality through and through.
These vintage brass medallions have been “given a patina that has been lightly sanded for an earthy, bohemian look. The patina is then sealed for durability” (hence, I have been wearing these beauties since I received them, and they look as perfect as the day I cast a glance at them). ” Medallions hang from antique finished brass ear wires (look Ma! No allergies!).
I am Heidi’s latest and greatest fan. The feel of these earrings is exquisite. The jewelry is so well created that it feels like a gift passed down to me from my grandmother - but the look of the jewelry is so current and sexy.
I traveled over to Heidi Lee’s store to have a look at the other jewlry she creates, hotly believing this must be her signature piece. No….While these earrings have stolen my heart, Heidi has a vast imagination and realm of creativity that reaches the well heeled gentleman in your life, as well…Take a look at the copper money clip. It is so sleek, modern, and masculine. Copper is such a gorgeous metal - and it puts such a masculine spin on a well crafted piece. These money clips are made in other metals like nickel and retail for an easy $30.00 to $40.00 range - perfect for commemorating an anniversary, birthday gifting, or for simply telling your man you appreciate him in your life.
There are a variety of futuristic and fashion forward designs crafted in the finest metals. These feel like quality craftsmanship - not cheap or heavy and cumbersome - just pure beauty to adorn the summer skin and cast a special glow of warmth and serenity.
One of my favorite designs is the silver blade earrings. Whether gifting yourself or giving to a bestie, Mom or sis, these earrings transcend age, styles and night or day looks. They would look gorgeous on that punk rock gal and equally as feminine and polished on your hard driving, suit wearing business gal. That is the beauty of Heidi’s jewelry. The designs are gorgeous and the possibilities are limitless.
All pieces are keepers, and if you care for them, you will certainly be keeping an heirloom suitable for handing down to the next generation!
If earrings are not for you, please take a look at the streamlined stackable bangles. I could stack them with anything! Nothing more gorgeous than a sunkissed tan arm sporting a few gold bangles that are well made. These bangles are a very stylized take on your original bangle. Have a look! The prices are truly affordable - especially for this level of craftsmanship! The skinny set of stacking bangles retail for $40.00.
