Beautiful and affordable charms and bracelets at Glaumulet



Charm bracelets are all the rage these days. When I was a young girl charm bracelets were very popular too. It’s nice to see that they made a comeback.

Back in the day I had a bracelet with a lot of dangly charms on it. i used to try and pick up a charm from places my family would travel too, as well as fun charms that I really liked and thought they were cute.

I have no clue whatever happened to my childhood charm bracelet. I know I couldn’t fit it anymore but maybe I could have added some of the charms to a new bracelet.

These days charms for charm bracelets are a lot more classy and sophisticated looking. You can still find cute and quirky ones too.

I was recently introduced to the company Glamulet. Glamulet creates beautiful charms and charm bracelets using high quality materials and beautiful craftsmanship.

One thing that stood out to me first and foremost when I visited the Glamulet website for the first time is that they offer completed bracelets, as well as charm sets. I love the idea of gifting a completed bracelet to someone. I also like the idea of giving someone a set of charms to get them started. After all, having just one lone charm on a charm bracelet is pretty sad looking. You want to have several to show off. I like being able to purchase a set of three at a time (charms are also sold separately too).

Check out some of the lovely charm sets available at Glamulet.

Of course you’ll need a charm bracelet to go with your beautiful charms.

Many companies sell charm bracelets, however all of their bracelets ten to look the same. At Glamulet you can find a variety of bracelet options – some I have never seen anywhere else. They have a bracelet to suit almost everyone’s tastes and preferences.



The pink bracelet is a limited edition and was made in honor of Breast Cancer awareness and support. They have a few pink bracelets available. Fifty percent (50%) from the sale of the pink bracelets will go towards Breast Cancer research.

In addition to the Breast Cancer bracelets campaign, Glamulet is also offering a FREE bracelet with orders of $99 or more. This offer is also for a limited time.

Glamulet offers FREE shipping on orders of $59+ too!

One of my favorite charms that Glamulet offers is their personalized photos charms. I have never seen these charms before. I would love to get one with a photo of my family on it and maybe another with my pets on it.

Photo Charm

Glamulet sent me a charm bracelet and some charms to try out and review.

The bracelet arrived in a beautiful box – a keepsake box that will keep my lovely bracelet protected.

I received the following charms and bracelet to review.


Bow and Rose Heart Charm


“Love” Silver and Gold Openwork Heart Charm – Swarovski


“Dream” Balloon Bear Dangle Charm – Swarovski


Rose Gold Plated “Love All Around” Charm


Silver Open Work Heart Charm


Sterling Silver Round Clip Classic Bracelet


Here are my photos of the bracelet. I only included the above photos from the Glamulet website because my photos don’t show as much detail as the “professional” photos do. Plus I was unable to get any decent close ups with my photos. They turned out fuzzy. The bracelet and charms are a million times nicer looking in person, I can assure you of that.






It’s truly a lovely bracelet and I adore the charms, especially the bear. He’s adorable!

The only “downside” is that the bracelet sent to me was too small. I needed a larger size. For that reason I had to switch the charms to another charm bracelet that I have (not the one pictured). I put aside this bracelet for my daughter. I am going to look into getting her some charms for Christmas and giving her this bracelet and the charms that I buy her as a gift.

The only thing negative that I can say – and this would apply to only a few people I’m sure – is that the clasp is not easy to open. I have to have my husband help me get it on/off and we both have a difficult time sliding our nails into the slit in the clasp to pop it open. This could present a problem for those (like me) with short nails or someone who has difficulty with manipulating small things (like those with arthritis). Aside from that one small detail, the bracelet is beautiful and I love it.

Give the gift of personalized jewelry from Name Factory


The Name Factory

The holiday season is fast approaching. I have no doubt that many people are already making notes and taking suggestions for their holiday shopping list. My kids are teenagers and already are telling us what they would like for Christmas. My daughter’s list is a mile long already. LOL!

If you have someone on your list that you would like to give an extra special gift to, you should check out the lovely, personalized jewelry from Name Factory.

The jewelry from the Name Factory is not just for women. They have jewelry for men and jewelry for children too. Personally I am not a fan of letting children were personalized jewelry when they are “out and about.” For ‘tweens and teens who know better than to go off with strangers, personalized jewelry is just fine. In fact my daughter has a few pieces with her name on it. She loves them.

The Name Factory, as you probably already figured out, sells personalized jewelry with initials, names or monograms on them. They have very classy/dressy pieces and other that are more fun and casual.

I was sent a piece to review. It didn’t have my name on it but it was personalized.

I was sent to review the Name Factory Family Tree Pendant. It had the initials of my husband and two children on it. It looked just like the one pictured (below).


As you can see it’s a beautiful necklace. Each initialed leaf is “dangly” so that the piece has some movement to it. I absolutely loved it and it looked beautiful on – especially when I was wearing a V-neck or deep scooped blouse/top.

The piece is very well made and it’s a large piece too (not huge and tacky – but large enough to be noticed).

Sadly I lost mine. Normally when I take off jewelry I put it back in my jewelry case. The last time I wore this I took it off at my desk and put it on my desk. That was the last I saw it. I don’t know if one of the cats go ahead of it (in which case it could be under the bed, couch, out on the balcony…) or it got mixed up with some papers and either is filed away some where on my desk or accidentally threw it out. I’ve looked for it for a very long time now and I have not been able to find it. I would have had this review post up A LOT sooner if I didn’t lose my beautiful necklace.


The piece I received to review would make a wonderful gift for a mom or grandmother. You can have the children or grandchildren’s initials put on the leaves. Please note that you can only put three initials per necklace, so if you have more than three children/grandchildren then this piece wouldn’t work.

I love how you can totally customize the piece to your liking, from the thickness to the chain length as well as the metal used. This particular piece is available in sterling silver, 24K gold plated, even real 14K gold.

Check out just a small sampling of the beautiful pieces of jewelry available at Name Factory.

Name Factory

I love the nice variety of pieces available.

I have my eye on a piece for my daughter for Christmas. She even saw a piece that she wants to get for her and her boyfriend (a couples piece).

If you would like to check out all the beautiful pieces of jewelry offered by the Name Factory visit www.NameFactory.com.

You can also check out the Name Factory on social media – Facebook ~ Instagram ~ Pinterest.

Shoot for the Moon with Chamilia by Swarovski



It’s true what they say – “Everything old is new again.”

I’m amazed by how many things from the past are suddenly “in” again. Take for example vinyl LP records. Yes! Actual records – the kind I listened to as a kid – are now back in style. I even received one for the Fifty Shades of Grey soundtrack. I also know that a collection of music from the Peanuts movies is also coming out on vinyl LP record towards the end of the year. In fact, last night on QVC I saw them selling a record player. Cool!

When I was a young girl I collected postcards and charms for a charm bracelet (among other things). It was fun to pick up a new charm for my bracelet from everywhere I traveled to. The charms were a fun reminder of my great travels. I also loved charms that represented me and the things I liked.

It’s great to see that charm bracelets are back in style. Too bad I can’t find the one I had as a child.

Charms have come a long way too. Back in my youth they were not overly elaborate. These days you can purchase charms with diamonds, fine gems and beautiful Swarovski crystals.


Are you familiar with the brand Chamilia?

The Chamilia company was founded in New York City in 2002 as a bead company. In 2013 it was purchased by the world renowned Swarovski. Swarovski crystals and zirconia are the finest in the world and radiate with unsurpassed brilliance.

Chamilia’s charms and jewelry are made with a blend of old-world techniques and cutting-edge technology. They use only the finest, heirloom-quality metals – solid .925 sterling silver and 14K gold. Their beautiful jewelry is created almost entirely by hand.

Accented with Swarovski Crystals and Zirconia –the finest in the world – they radiate with unsurpassed brilliance.

I have a new charm bracelet now and I am slowly adding new charms to it. Right now I have a Tinker Belle charm, “I Love My Family” charm, “Wunderlust” charm, a butterfly charm and a tiny skull. There are meanings behind each one of them.

I recently added a new charm to my bracelet from Chamilia. It’s their “Shoot for the Moon” charm. This super adorable charm features a rocket ship colored with light blue enamel. There is a single red Swarovski crystal at the base of the rocket (where the flames come from).

I wasn’t able to get a decent photo of the crystal, but here is the charm on my bracelet as well as on it’s own. Bracelet



I’m sorry the photo quality is not better. It’s so much nicer in person.

The Shoot to the Moon charm is very detailed including the star shaped part that slips on to your charm bracelet (sorry, I don’t know the technical term for that part).

I really like this charm because I’ve always told my kids to “Shoot for the Moon” (or stars), meaning “aim high.” So I really like the sentiment behind this adorable charm. I also like that it has a patriot look to it.

The Shoot for the Moon charm retails for $40 and you can find it on the Chamilia website, Chamilia.com. You can also find the brand on social media. All the links are found on the bottom of their website.

Do you have a charm bracelet or a favorite charm?

Help support animals with beautiful jewelry from Sincerely Ginger


An old picture of our cats and dog (Bella is no longer a kitten).

An old picture of our cats and dog (Bella is no longer a kitten).

I absolutely love animals. I sometimes think I like animals more than people (LOL). I’m a proud pet mom to five cats, a dog who thinks he’s a cat and a Goldfish who fears the cats.

I have always dreamed of owning a farm. Not only do I want to grow and raise my own fruits, vegetables, milk and eggs but I also want a lot of animals.

If I was rich I would open my own animal sanctuary for unwanted animals and/or animals in need.

Pets are like potato chips – you can’t have just one. :-)

Because of my love of animals I am always happy to support organizations, groups and businesses who do something special for animals in need. Sincerely Ginger Jewelry is one such business.

Sincerely Ginger Jewelry is a new, online jewelry store. They are pre-launching their jewelry collection with a special collection of pieces dedicated to our love of pets. Next year “every day” jewelry will be available for purchase.

Sincerely Ginger Jewelry created several pieces with a single paw print design. The collection includes necklaces, rings and bracelets. Some of the pieces are made with either lab created gems or genuine gems. Currently the available gems are sapphire and rubies. Diamond and emerald necklaces will be available later on this year around the holidays.

This beautiful collection supports PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society), a no-kill animal shelter. Fifteen percent (15%) of each purchase in the paw print collection is donated to PAWS.  The organization is 100% donor funded, and $0.91 of every dollar goes directly to lifesaving efforts.

PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society)

Not only can you feel good that your purchase is going to help animals in need, the jewelry is also eco-friendly and sustainable.

The pieces available in the PAWS collection are made out of Argentium silver. Argentium is made of reclaimed silver and is whiter, brighter, and more durable than traditional sterling silver.  The best characteristic, however, is its anti-tarnish properties, which makes it invaluable. I love that it’s anti-tarnish. That is my #1 pet peeve (no pun intended) about silver – that it tarnishes.

All of the pieces match perfectly with one another. More pieces will be added to the collection this fall.

The pieces range in price from $55 to $1,460, depending on the piece and the characteristics. Obviously the pieces made from genuine gems are more costly. I can tell you from personal experience that the lab created gems are not only cheaper but also equally as stunning.

Sincerely Ginger Jewelry sent me a gorgeous necklace to review. It came beautifully packaged.

Paw necklace

Look at how wonderful the necklace is.

It appears gold in my photo but it’s actually a bright silver. I’m not sure why the color is off in the photo.

This is a substantial piece too. It’s a good weight. It’s not a filmy, cheap piece. Even the chain that the necklace comes on is nicely made.

I’ve received many compliments on this necklace. The gems really catch people eyes. It’s also obvious that it’s a paw print so people who see the necklace know that I am an animal lover.

The paw print “charm” is about the size of a quarter and it’s very sparkly, most especially in the sunlight. I can sometimes catch the sparkle when I’m in my car and looking through one of my mirrors. I love things that sparkle and shine, especially something that I find near and dear to my heart – my pets.

Sincerely Ginger Jewelry is also running a giveaway. Anyone who joins their mailing list will be entered to win one of their new paw necklaces.

For more information or to check out the pieces for yourself visit SincerelyGingerJewelry.com. You can also find the brand on Facebook and Instagram (SincerelyGingerJewelry) and on Twitter (@Ginger_Jewelry).

What do you think about the collection?

Beautiful jewelry and charms from SOUFEEL


Charm Bracelet

When I was a young girl (a million years ago – so it would seem), charm bracelet were all the rage. Everyone I knew had a charm bracelet and it was a big deal to get a new charm for it. I used to make sure I picked up a charm from any place my family and I would go to. My mom also bought me charms for my birthday and Christmas. At one point I had so many charms that I could barely fit them all on my bracelet.

For some reason that fad seemed to fade away. I honestly can’t even tell you where my charm bracelet is. I haven’t seen it since high school (30 years ago!).

It’s nice to see that charm bracelets have made their return. Thanks to the popularity of brands like Pandora, charm bracelets are back in style. Sadly not everyone can afford such a charm bracelet. Although their charms are beautiful they are not exactly budget friendly.

If you or someone you love is into charm bracelets (owns one or would love to have one) I have an affordable option for you – SOUFEEL charms and bracelets.

The charms available from SOUFEEL around made out of 925 sterling silver. They are even compatible with Pandora and similar type of bracelets. In fact if yo compare the SOUFEEL charms with their more expensive counterparts you would find it difficult to tell the difference.

Here is just a small sampling of the charms available from SOUFEEL.


I especially love the charms you can have made up using your favorite photo. This is a great idea and would make a wonderful gift especially for a mom, grandma or graduate.


SOUFEEL has sale items and pre-sale items so it’s a good idea to bookmark the site and check them out frequently to see what is new and what is on sale. They even have a deal of the day. The adorable graduate owl was a deal of the day. That would be a fun gift for a graduate.

SOUFEEL also offers a FREE bracelet for your charms with orders over $99.00. In addition they also offer a FREE charm with purchases over $79.00 and FREE shipping over $50.00. In addition SOUFEEL offers a 365-day return and exchange guarantee.

SOUFEEL sent me a bracelet and some charms to see just how beautiful and well made their products are. The hard part was figuring out what charms I wanted for my bracelet. There are so many wonderful options to choose from.


I picked the following charms.


Flying Butterfly  – I love butterflies. I think they are beautiful creatures.

A dear friend of mine gave me the nickname “My Precious Butterfly,” which is also why I chose this charm.

I am also a fan of Sir Elton John. I met him once. I’m still in awe of that.

One of my favorite Sir Elton John songs is “Someone Saved My Life Tonight,” and the chorus of the song refers to butterflies.

You’re a butterfly
And butterflies are free to fly
Fly away, high away, bye bye


Terrible Skull – A skull would seem like an odd choice, but I think they are really cool. I also happen to like Sugar Skulls. There is something fascinating about them.

I am also a fan of horror movies and my dream career (one I was working towards in college) was to be a Forensic Psychologist. I wanted to solve crimes. A skull seems like a fitting choice for that too.


Wanderlust Dangle Charm – I love to travel. I would travel the world if it was financially possible. Many of my “Bucket List” items are associated with traveling.

Wanderlust means “a strong desire to travel.”

I love my family

I Love My Family – I do love my family – need I say more? Not only do I love my immediate family (husband and children), I also love my father, mom and dad, aunts, uncles, cousins and anyone related to me.


Emerald Fairy Dangle Charm – I love Disney films and Tinker Belle is a favorite character.

I also like fairies because it’s fun to think there is an alternate world that we are not fully aware of.

Fairies are fun and carefree and have kind hearts.

This fairy happens to have emerald colored wings. My birthstone is emerald and green is my favorite color.


I also received a lovely sterling silver bracelet to put my charms on.

I love the bracelet and the charms. They are beautiful. I can’t wait to add more charms to it. I already have several picked out on the SOUFEEL website that I need to send to my hubby so he knows what he can get me for our anniversary and Christmas.

Honestly, the only “negative” I can think of is that the clasp for the bracelet is not easy for me to open/close. I need help with it. It needs to be snapped open (pulled open) and I can’t do that with one hand.

Aside from that you have to be careful that the charms don’t slip off when the bracelet is off your wrist and not clasped closed. The charms can easily slide. I don’t think that is a “flaw”. I’m sure that happens with similar charm bracelets. Just be aware that it can, and does, happen.


SOUFEEL carries other jewelry products in addition to the charms and bracelets including earrings, rings and necklaces.

If you you would like to learn more or to check out the available charms and bracelets please visit SOUFEEL.com. You can also follow the brand on social media. All of their social media links are found at the bottom of their website.

SOUFEEL is offering readers 5% off their purchases using the discount code Kimberly5.

What do you think about SOUFEEL jewelry? Do you have a charm bracelet? Would you give a charm bracelet as a gift?

Beautiful fashion accessories from LILACLABEL



I don’t often consider myself a “girly-girl.” I’m not crazy obsessed with purses, heels or designer labels. Don’t get me wrong – I do enjoy these things, it’s just that they are not things I feel I can’t live without.

I do love jewelry. I may not have an extensive collection, but the pieces I do have are beautiful and many of them have sentimental value to me, including a ring that belonged to my beloved great-great aunt and a bracelet I gave my mom for Christmas that I got back when she passed away.

Recently I was introduced to a brand called LILACLABEL.

Found in 2014 by Saida Valiyeva, the designer and owner of LILACLABEL and a mom to 2 kids under 2 years old she started designing gemstone jewelry because she truly believed that each gem is a little particle of nature and it carried the healing properties of Mother Earth. Every woman will benefit from wearing this luxurious pieces of powerful energy to bring her well being and confidence to the next level.

I am intrigued by how stones and gems have healing properties. People have believed in them for hundreds of years. I don’t know if there is any scientific results to prove otherwise. I would like to think that they do in some way.

I have a stone that hangs in my car. I don’t know what type of stone it is. I believe it might be a raw Black Obsidian. I was told is looked like a Lodestone, but mine does not have any magnetic properties that I am aware of.

I was given the stone by my ex-boyfriend’s mother. She was a VERY religious person, which makes it all the more stranger.

The very last time I saw her (about 20 years ago) she told me she had something she wanted to give me. She went to her jewelry box and took out something that as wrapped in a tissue. She handed me this plain looking black rock. She never told me what it was or what it was for. I just accepted her unusual gift and left it at that.

Photo Source: http://www.geology.neab.net/minerals/holmquis.htm

I showed the rock to a friend of mine who considers herself a Wiccan (a form of a witch – one that is devoted to nature and the natural world). She told me it was a Lodestone and it’s used to protect people.

I find it odd my ex-boyfriend’s mother would give me something to protect me, but I guess there was a reasons for it.

My friend wrapped it in wire so I could wear it as a necklace if I wanted to. I did for a little while but then I ended up hanging it from my car’s rear view mirror. It’s been about 20 years and it still hangs from my car’s rear view mirror – even though I have gone through about five cars during that time.

I have never had an accident in my car (thank goodness). I don’t know if I can attribute it to the stone that hangs from my mirror or just luck and good driving.

In a way I am attached to that stone. I recently got a new (used) car and the first thing I did was remove the stone from my previous car and hung it up in my new car.

I don’t know if healing and protective properties given to stones is real, wishful thinking or psychosomatic. In any event many people believe in them and until science can prove otherwise I’d like to think that there is something to them.

When LILACLABEL asked me if I wanted to do a review I was happy to do so. The hard part was picking out what I wanted.

LILACLABEL bracelets

LILACLABEL jewelry ranges in price from $65 to $400. This unique jewelry are not only beautiful, they also make a wonderful accessory because they:

  • are versatile and practical because bracelets, charms and necklace(s) can be worn alone or together, mixed and matched, dressed up or down
  • feature the latest styles and trends in jewelry fashion
  • are made of high quality natural gemstones to make you feel empowered and inspired
  • ​ are made of rhodium and 14K gold plated sterling silver, so they will never tarnish
  • designed to go with any outfit and style you might own
  • available to ship worldwide (from our online store)

Saida Valiyeva, the designer and owner of LILACLABEL has an educational background in Fashion and Languages. She started designing gemstone jewelry because she truly believe that each gem is a little particle of nature and it carries the healing properties of Mother Earth. She also believes that every woman will benefit from wearing this luxurious jewelry that will not only give her powerful energy but will also bring her well being and confidence to the next level.

I picked a bracelet made out of Aventurine with 14K gold accents.

Green is my favorite color. I also liked what it said about the stone.

Aventurine is known to encourage creativity, give the wearer courage, independence, calmness and serenity. It is a lucky stone, and said if you hold aventurine in both hands while envisioning prosperity, money and good luck they will arrive.

We have one child heading off to college. We can use all the money we can get. LOL! I also could use courage, calmness and luck. It seemed like the perfect choice for me.

The bracelet is gorgeous. It’s pictured at the top of this post.

I love how the stones have little flecks of black in them. Each stone is different. You can tell these are real stones because of each bead’s uniqueness.


The bracelet fits me perfectly. I had requested a slightly larger size do to my thick wrist. I was worried it would have been too snug otherwise.

The bracelet is made out of a stretchy material so it has some “give” to it.

I have received many compliments about the bracelet. I think a lot has to do with the interesting green color is has.

I don’t know if the stones are doing what they are known for, but that doesn’t matter. If it does – great. If not, no biggy. I still have a beautiful bracelet that I love to wear. I can wear it to work (which I normally do), to run errands around town or a night out with my husband. It’s a very versitile piece that easily goes from day to night.

If you would like to learn more about LILACLABEL, or to check out all the wonderful jewelry, visit www.LILACLABEL.com. You can also find the brand on Facebook and Instagram.

What do you think about this jewelry? Do you believe that stones have some kind of property to them to help protect us, bring us luck and so on?

Do you have a stone that you think has helped you in some way? Feel free to share your stories. I love to hear from readers.
