Soufeel Charm Bracelet Review + 5% off!

I'm not really a HUGE jewelry person so when Soufeel contacted me about reviewing one of thier bracelets I wasn't really sure what to expect. I'm pretty sure the only jewelry I actually own is five dollar items from Forever 21, so getting something from Soufeel was amazing. I actually ended up getting a gift for my grandmother (who LOVES good jewelry) and it seriously did not dissapoint.


Even the package was fancy. :)

Soufeel's charms are amazing. They are 925 sterlin silver and can even fit Pandora bracelets plus they have a smaller price tag on them and are really good quality. 


They have a TON of new arrivals and June presale products which were fun to look through since it made my bracelet more customizable.

They also offer free shipping worldwide with orders over $50 and a 365 day return and exchange guarantee. (Which I love because I am always nervous ordering anything online for fear I won't like it.)

Ok. Now let me tell you about my charms:


Since I am giving this as a gift, I got these charms for my grandmother. Starting from the left I got the little owl with the school hat on because she was a kindergarten teacher for 20 years. Then I got the darling little shovel and flower because she is an avid gardener, the letter C because she refers to herself as Mrs. C. and the puzzle charm because it was so cute! (It even says Love on one side) becuase she is really big on puzzles. Then lastly, this darling charm that says grandma on it!

I LOVE how they look together and I seriously had a hard time taking a picture of the indvidual charms because they were so dang shiny.


The latch on the bracelet is super high quality and is easy to open but won't easily unlatch while you're wearing it. I also like the bracelet a lot because its fluid moving but it doesn't catch or pinch your skin in the tiny grooves.

Don't forget to use the coupon code "Ali5" to get 5% off ANY order!

Oh and you might also want tto know that they are also offering a special promotion right now where you get a FREE ring with orders over $59 and a FREE charm with orders over $79 AND a FREE bracelet with orders over $99!

I am SO excited for Christmas (I don't know if I can wait that long) so I can give this to her! She is going to LOVE it! I seceretly want to keep this for myself now...

Patriotic Scrap Wood Project

Today we have the very talented Kelly from Typically Simple sharing this fun 4th of July craft!

PatrioticScrapWoodProject

Hi there! It's Kelly from Typically Simple and I'm back this month with a super easy craft project that is perfect for the 4th of July! Late this spring, we were busy moving into our new house and I feel like I'm still unpacking boxes. Just when I think I've gotten everything unpacked, I'll find a rogue box in the corner of the basement that needs to go upstairs. And I just so happened to come across a box full of a bunch of wood scraps from my crafting projects in years past. Because I just can't get rid of craft supplies (you never know when you might need a 2 inch piece of orange polka dotted ribbon) I knew I had to come up with something crafty to use up these wood scraps. And since I'm always looking for cute, holiday decor to sit on our bookshelf, I made something for the 4th of July! My wood scraps are 2x2 cut into 4, 5, and 6 inches in length. To get started, I brushed on a few coats of white acrylic paint.

Next I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut out some stripes and stars from vinyl to use as stencils. You could easily use painters tape and stickers to do this part.

Then I painted the two taller pieces red and the shortest piece with the stars, I painted blue. After letting the first coat dried, I added a second coat. Once that was dry, I peeled off the vinyl to show the white paint underneath.

If you wanted to go for a more rustic, worn look, you could sand the pieces after you peel the stencils off. I decided to just leave them as they were and tied them all together with a piece of burlap. It's the perfect addition to the rest of my bookshelf decor!

Little Head to Toe Giveaway!

I'm pretty excited about today's giveaway because its from one of my friends Etsy shops, Little Head to Toe! Plus, I really love 'merica so its a total win-win.

My fave thing in the shop are these handmade fabric baby shoes. IN LOVE. Fabric shoes are my fave for babies. Especially babies that can't walk. They keep their toes warm and they stay on (as opposed to those stupid baby socks that will be the bane of my existence.) Check out some of the darling baby shoes in the shop!
