Review: 144 Collection

Thursday, April 30, 2009

144 Collection started years ago as a simple hobby for Lesia Griffin. Lesia began taking sewing lessons as an exciting activity that would allow her to express her creative side. As she continued with her lessons, Lesia found she loved designing and creating her own unique handbags and wristlets. After receiving rave reviews from friends and family, she took her love of designing to the next level
and started 144 Collection.

Each 144 Collection handbag and wristlet is unique to compliment a special outfit, occasion or your own individuality.144 Collection is proud to stand behind the fact that their bags will never be mass produced and will never break your bank.



Review: The Dorothy Wristlet in Black Damask ($24) that I received is the perfect accessory for the woman on-the-go who doesn't have time to fuss with a larger bag. This wristlet is big enough to hold your important essentials - a cell phone, mp3 player, PDA, Blackberry, checkbook, iPhone, lipstick, etc. It also features two exterior pockets to use for business cards or credit/debit cards. This wristlet has a fully lined interior and an 8 inch zipper closure to secure your belongings.

You can buy the Dorothy wristlet in various styles:
Blossom, Evergreen Buds, Ginger Lily, Hawthorne Buds, Kyoto, Maddie, Multi Dot, Rocca Mocca or Silhouettes.

Dorothy will be your next BFF.

Post a comment about which jewelry piece that you would like to buy on the widget above.

I received the Jasmine Earrings ($45) and the Gigi Bracelet in Mint ($40). Both pieces are gorgeous! Mint green is one of my favorite colors to wear. Either piece would compliment any of the mint green dresses that I own.

Beside the beautiful Swarovski crystal laden design, I love the versatility and comfort that this bracelet provides. You can go simply solo or stunningly stacked with this bracelet.

They offer other colors for this bracelet style: Fuchsia/Jet/Turquoise, Honey/Gray, Peach/Olive, Amethyst/Turquoise/Clear or Purple/Olive.

Not only will you look mesmerizing, but be prepared to be lavished with compliments with the gorgeous Jasmine Earrings! These earrings feature drops of calcite punctuated with lyrical scrolls.

Stumped at what to get that special lady in your life for Mother's Day? Be sure to check out their Mother's Day Gift Idea's section.

About Holly Yashi: Holly Yashi was founded in 1981 by jewelry designer Holly Hosterman, creative director, and industrial artist Paul Lubitz, CEO/President.

Fresh out of college, Holly was working three jobs, while Paul “Yashi” Lubitz, was the high energy guy that always had a ton of ideas for businesses he wanted to start but had never held a “real job” for any stretch of time. What they didn’t know then, was no matter how different they were; they had a purpose in this world together.

When Paul suggested they start a jewelry business Holly agreed. They transformed a one-car garage into their studio I and started creating jewelry that was built on craft, creativity and innovation. Holly had no idea that decision would change the whole course of her life, and give her the opportunity to create jewelry that would inspire and excite women around the world.

They’ve come a long way from those garage days…While their northern California design studio is now fifteen thousand square feet they still honor the craft of jewelry making, hand-crafting their jewelry in small batches, preserving the value of each piece so it may live on for decades to come.

The giveaway will conclude May 10th.

Review: DreamSacks

Saturday, April 25, 2009



Review: I love the BambooDreams Clara Circle Tunic in Storm Blue ($55) that I received from DreamSacks. I believe this is my first time owning a clothing piece that is made from bamboo. It is also pesticide free. This top has to be one of the most comfortable pieces that I own! The material is very lightweight and soft. Not only it is it comfortable, but it is also stylish. You can go casual or dress it up a bit, whatever you prefer.

This top is also available in other colors as well: Black or Lichen.

They have an extensive collection of clothes for women, men and children; accessories, furniture and bedding. Even though DreamSacks items are manufactured in China, they work closely with factories that provide safe and friendly environments for their workers. Therefore, they know the conditions since they visit China biannually.

Gifts You Can Feel Good About Getting

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

This Mother’s Day, a dozen roses or a fancy dinner out might seem too rich for the times. But every mom wants to be recognized and OneWorld Health, the non-profit that provides life-saving medicines to the poorest people on the planet, has an affordable luxury that’s just right for the times because it helps other mothers and their children survive.



The OneWorld Health charm features a distinctive water drop dangle, which symbolizes the hope OneWorld Health provides with every drop of life-saving medicine it develops for poorest mothers and children on the planet.

The OneWorld Health-Pandora partnership has already yielded more than $200,000.00 in donations to OneWorld Health and the Glamour Woman of the Year-founded organization is hoping their “Charm Your Mother and Save a Life” Mother's Day campaign will help support its new efforts to save poor women and children from dying of preventable diseases.

Review: HipFusion Designs

Friday, April 10, 2009



Review: I received the Front Toggle Bar Tag Necklace in the crystal bead version ($115) from HipFusion Designs, their most popular style. I had this necklace engraved with my and my son's name on it. I immediately put this necklace on when it first arrived, and I haven't taken it off since. Needless to say, I'm very pleased with this necklace. It is definitely something that I will always treasure. I'm glad that Neida, the founder behind this company considered our blog to review this necklace.

You can variate this particular necklace with sterling silver beads or Swavorski crystal beads - whatever suits your style. This necklace design can also accommodate up to 6 personalized bar tags.

Not only HipFusion Designs has a wide range of jewelry to choose from, but they also provide excellent customer service! If I ever consider having anymore jewelry personalized, this is one company that I will order from in the future.
