Joyo Jewelry: Review & Giveaway!

Hard to believe it’s been so long since I’ve blogged. 2013 has not started off the way I would have liked, and between my personal life, health, work, and daughter, I’m just barely chugging along. I’ve avoided writing – for fear that all my emotions would pour out, and I’d be unable to stop them, and wouldn’t know what to do with everything.

With the support of a select few I’ve been able to slowly progress. It’s a new month, with new opportunities and I’m determined to make the future days better than my past days. So with that….

I’m thrilled to partner with Jenn over at Joyo a wonderfully unique jewelry company making one of a kind laser cut jewelry. Not only does Jenn make gorgeous jewelry, it’s locally made in Scituate, MA! I’ve been lucky enough to own a pair of earrings and a necklace and I couldn’t be any happier. Not only are her items impeccably made, they are extremely lightweight – which I loooove. When I wear my square earrings, I can’t even tell they are in! And they are the perfect accessory to my newly cut hair (pic to come soon!). 

As someone who is becoming more conscious of environmentally friendly products, I’m thrilled that Joyo values using recycled materials and sources locally as much as possible!! Way to go Jenn & Joyo!

I want you have a piece of the fabulousness and am offering 10% off all orders on Joyo using the discount code ALEXELIZ good until midnight on February 15th! Perfect if you need to buy a Valentine’s gift for a friend…of yourself!

You know I love a good giveaway, so I’m giving away a pair of the stunning small leaves earrings in birch! Entering is easy:

  • Wagon-Ho - Two Bar-ba-loots take The Once-ler’s wagon on a ride they won’t soon forget.

The Lorax is awesome & a Stonyfield Giveaway!

The folks over at Stonyfield sent my daughter and I to see the wonderful movie The Lorax in 3D this weekend. I’m sure by now we’ve all seen a commercial or ad for this wonderful movie, and I’m glad to say that it sure did live up to all the hype!
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not.
-          Dr. Suess
From the graphics to the message, the movie was one of the best kid’s movies I’ve seen in a long time. It wasn’t just about social responsibility it was about greed, manipulation, confidence, and the environment. It made me think a lot about my role in society and how I may be helping or hurting the environment. It’s great because my daughter left wanting to plant seeds and spend time with the trees!
