Do you get a new suit each swimming season? How about getting one that offers sun protection? The suits and active wear at HydroChic are stylish with exceptional sun protection.

I have been browsing the selection at HyrdoChic and I adore the swim dresses. These dresses can be worn in and out of the water. HydroChic was so kind to share with me a swim dress, swim bra and swim shorts.

swimdress

I love the colors and the style of the Geometric short sleeve swim dress. It has a contrasting turquoise and purple top with a black bottom. The design is flattering even for a plus size shape. I have been wearing this as a dress while at home and even running errands since my pool water is much to cold to get in yet. The fit is good. The dress has movement with ample coverage. The material feels great! I wanted to see how it was in the water so I heated my jacuzzi. It feels and response just like a swimsuit! I thought it might be heavy soaking up water, but it was fine. The best part is this swimdress comes in missy and Plus sizes! The material offers UPF 50+ Sun Protection!

The Supreme swim  and sports bra is very supportive and is ideal for wearing under the swimdress. The swim shorts come to just above the knees. The piping adds a nice look and it goes well with the swimdress. I can wear just the swim shorts with a t-shirt for an active look. They are comfortable.

Whether you are plus sized or simply looking for sun protective active and swim wear, HydroChic has many styles to choose from. The colors are bold and vivid. No need to hide from the sun – get yourself protective clothing from HydroChic!

Do you have a guy that is hard to buy for? Or maybe they are very selective about what they want. My hubby is so finicky when it comes to socks and underwear. He likes his comfort and has a fun sense of style.  I have been through too many briefs and sock pairs that he no longer likes to wear. If only he could get new ones each month…..

SYNC to the rescue. Stuff You Need Cheap is a monthly subscription service for guys. How it works: Sign up for a subscription and a monthly box of 3 pairs of either briefs or socks will be delivered right to the door!

Here is the bold brief design hubby received from SYNC for review. The colors are bold and stylish plus the soft, high quality cotton spandex blend, comfort has him saying aaahh!

The price is reasonable at just $18 per month with FREE SHIPPING. That is a bargain compared to designer briefs or good quality socks bought at retail plus you get 3 each month!

Moms – if you have a son in college, sign them up for the SYNC subscription and know they will have clean underwear or socks at least once a month.

Get started by subscribing to SYNC today. You can cancel anytime. Considering giving a gift of SYNC.

High Chi Energy Jewelry

Comments Off on High Chi Energy Jewelry

During my recent visit to the Natural Products Expo West, I was drawn into a magical booth. I could feel the energy pulling me towards there direction. I found it enlightening, energizing and grounding. I had found High Chi Energy Jewelry!

Amethyst9ct_196b604a-e715-4984-8de9-212a17b28a9b_large

The booth was filled with beautiful charms, stones and amulets. I was greeted by a wonderfully easy gentleman to talk with, Ross. He explained the story of High Chi and how its founder Deborah has been studying Metaphysical Arts for decades. I became instantly intrigued as he had me hold my left hand just above the Harmonic Gemstone pendants. The energy you need chooses you! I could feel a change in the energy vibration as I passed over the Amethyst. Amethyst is linked to awareness, connecting to intuition and spiritual growth. I then was directed to the Gods and Goddesses collection. Once again the vibration changed over the White Tara pendant. White Tara represents healing on the emotional, mental and physical Levels, courage and perseverance.

Deborah from High Chi was so kind to offer me a discount to create my “chosen” necklace. In a few moments, I was wearing the stunning piece of energy! Shannon took the gentle loving care to put my necklace together.

I can add a Sacred Geometry piece to my necklace at any time. I would love to enhance the energy with the HighChi pendant. I have been wearing my necklace for a few weeks now and honestly, I hate to be without it. It makes me feel calm and protected. Does it have healing properties? I can say it does make a difference when I am wearing it. The subtle energy provides balance in myself. I knew there was a reason I was drawn to their booth. I am beyond happy to have found High Chi.

High Chi offers jewelry collections for Women, Men and also pets! They also have Chi Cubes which you can carry in your pocket or purse. The cubes can be combined for different energies you desire. I purchased a Healing and a THC-CBD Chi cube. Again I could feel the energy vibrations. I had to inquire about the THC-CBD cube as I am a believer in the medical benefits of CBD. While holding the THC cube I started to feel slightly dizzy. Coincidence? Maybe, but Ross had to remove the cube from my hand to calm down the dizziness. I was skeptical until I actually experienced the energy for myself.

You can order from High Chi directly online but I would suggest attending a show to see and feel the energy in action. High Chi will be attending many shows throughout 2015.

Dome Life Studios – Etsy Necklace Giveaway – Closed

Comments Off on Dome Life Studios – Etsy Necklace Giveaway – Closed

Dome life logo

On my recent excursion to Blogher 2014 in San Jose, I met a wonderfully joyful blogger from New Mexico. Lillian joined my table during breakfast and her upbeat, warm character truly brightened up the morning. I found out she is a very talented artist!

Dome Life Studios on Etsy is home to Lillian’s colorful artwork. She features prints, ceramic art tiles and my favorite – gorgeous, one of a kind, jewelry! I was drawn to her collection by the use of her bold and vibrant colors. The colors work together in vivid harmony!  Lillian chooses to celebrate life by living with passion, joy and love which is wholeheartedly expressed in every art piece.

Her jewelry style is unique – using alcohol inks on glass pendants. I have never seen this type of creating before. The process is mesmerizing as you can see in this YouTube video. It is easy to see how each piece is truly one of a kind.

 

I fell in love with one of her necklaces, the Serenity Tree and had to have it. I love the way the purple color dances with the green grass! The pink and red leaves are reaching for the sun! It is stunning and I can feel the Serenity in the artwork!

Another of my favorites is the Mermaid are Real pendant. It was a tough decision on which one to choose. Every necklace is truly an eye catching design. The passion for joy and the love of color is present in each of Dome Life Studios offerings. The necklaces are one of a kind at a very reasonable price of $18.00. With the holidays coming, they would make a very special unique gift! Lillian is adding necklaces all the time to the selection so keep checking back at Dome Life Studios for the latest masterpiece.

I love how fashion history repeats itself. I have always been envious of the clothes of the past decades. Seriously I think my mom still has some original vintage in her closet. To get the vintage style dresses and accessories you can wear in today’s fashion circles, you must visit Shabby Apple. The classic styles are updated with all new fabrics and designs. The vintage clothing selection at Shabby Apple is a must see.

Daydream Believer Skirt

The newest collection is a lot of fun. It’s a Mod World features blocks of black and white with touches of hipness! It looks like it just popped of the screen of your favorite Mad Men episode. One of my favorite looks is the Daydream Believer Skirt. The look can’t be beat when you add the go-go boots.

The adorable dresses are a true statement of a fashion forward time. Shabby Apple makes dresses that bring out the beauty of fashion. Wearing a Shabby Apple dress is how a woman should feel, glamorous!

I loved browsing the collections and wanted to be the girl on location. Each theme style is gorgeously photographed in the proper setting for representing the era.
