Have you ever heard of FantasyJewelryBox.
com? Well if you haven't you are really missing out on some great deals. Fantasy Jewelry Box is one of the leading online retailers of celebrity and designer inspired jewelry. Their slogan is "Affordable Jewelry For Expensive Tastes." We can all relate to that, can't we? I know I love the looks of designer inspired jewelry but can't always afford it, so when I came across Fantasy Jewelry Box and the awesome variety of jewelry they sell at such great prices, I fell in love!

Their specialty is celebrity inspired jewelry, but they are also a leading online retailer of replica celebrity rings, fake engagement rings, and faux wedding sets. They sell sterling silver jewelry that primarily consists of high end genuine .925 Sterling Silver with high-quality cubic zirconia stones as well.


So when Fantasy Jewelry Box offered to let me review an item from their store I was overwhelmed at what to pick out. I scanned every page, it took me so long to make up my mind. Not because I couldn't find anything that I liked, but because I liked SO MANY of their awesome pieces. So finally I found Annalise's Celebrity Style Silver CZ Cocktail Ring which is on sale right now for $47.95!


It is a grand beauty in a class all by itself! This cz sparkling cocktail ring boasts a 9 carat diamond cz diamond center stone that will guarantee "oohs" and "ahhs!" Well it definitely is gorgeous, no doubt about that! I chose this piece because I wanted something that I can wear anytime, with anything and it would look gorgeous on no matter what! I am very happy with the look of this ring, it is made very well, the cz stone sparkles and it isn't going to fall apart because it is made so well and is such a sturdy piece!

I would 110% recommend that you check out FantasyJewelryBox.com if you are looking for any kind of quality piece without the hefty price tag! They have everything from Rings, Earrings, Necklaces, Pendants, Bracelets, Brooches, Men's Jewelry and so much more!

They have CZ Jewelry, Celebrity Inspired Jewelry, Designer Inspired Jewelry, Vintage Inspired Jewelry, Bridal Jewelry and so much more, if your looking for something beautiful I guarantee you'll find it at FantasyJewelryBox.com!

SUNGLASS WAREHOUSE REVIEW & GIVE-A-WAY

The LUCKY winner of the Sunglass Warehouse give-a-way is entry #79 Suz! Congrats! I want to thank everyone who signed up for this give-a-way and to the sponsor SunglassWarehouse.com! There are so many give-a-ways going on right now, make sure you get your entries in!


*GIVE-A-WAY CLOSED 05/05/2010*

(Please don't laugh at me in these aviator sunglasses, I was lacking in the aviator department and now I know why... although the sunglasses are adorable and I love them, they are not good for my face shape after seeing myself in this picture...ewwww lol!!!)

I love accessories and sunglasses ar
e a must have for me! Not only because my eyes are so sensitive to the sun, but because they just add something to your whole outfit. I love the way they look on and sometimes wish I never had to take them off! You might just find 5 pairs in my purse at a time! I just ♥ them so much!

So when I teamed up with Sunglass Warehouse and they told me to pick out any pair of sunglasses to review, it took me awhile to go through ALL of them and decide which ones I wanted to try out or on should I say.They have so many styles of women's sunglasses to choose from.

All of Sunglass Warehouse's
sunglasses are under $20, can you believe that? They also always offer same day shipping! So I started looking through their Aviator Sunglasses, Celebrity Sunglasses, and Oversized Sunglasses and found these...

  Super cute purple framed mirroed aviator sunglasses

I have lots of different sunglasses but I am lacking in the aviator department and thought how cute would these purple ones be for summer! I love them and can you believe they are on sale for only $12.71? How incredibly cheap is that! I will tell you that they are not lacking in style or quality either, they are just an amazing pair of sunglasses for an incredibly low price! Another thing that I love about Sunglass Warehouse is that if you are maybe unsure of what sunglasses would work for you, they have some awesome pages on choosing sunglasses for your face shape and also choosing sunglasses based on your skin tone.  Sunglass Warehouse offers amazing prices on the best sunglasses out there. They have a huge selection for women and men's sunglasses and they even have a huge selection of kid's sunglasses!

I am totally going to order these for the boys, check out these cool blue retro sunglasses SW kids style #20250, they are only $8.46 right now
I can so see Jace in these little aviator sunglasses SW kids style #920, he loves to be like his daddy and these are perfect and only $10.16!!! So cool!

Here a a few of my other favorite styles right now...

I love these square teal sunglasses SW Square Style #402, can you believe that they are only $12.71 too! I also love these celebrity inspired white Oversied Sunglasses SW Style #8836. They are only $13.56!! They are so modern and could be worn with so many things this summer.

HAPPY 7TH ANNIVERSARY CRAIG

I Love You
Craig

How do I begin to tell you how lucky I am
to have you in my life?
I'll start by saying what an honor it is
for me to be your wife.

You're my best friend in the good times
and my rock in times of sorrow.
You're the reason for sweet yesterdays
and my promise for tomorrow.

I never thought I could feel this loved
until I became your wife.
You made this year and every year
the best one of my life.

MUNCHIE MUG REVIEW & GIVE-A-WAY

THE LUCKY WINNER OF THE MUNCHIE MUG GIVE-A-WAY IS ENTRY #2 KAELIN! CONGRATS! THANKS TO ALL WHO ENTERED AND TO MUNCHIE MUG FOR SPONSORING THIS GIVE-A-WAY!

*GIVE-A-WAY CLOSED 05/04/2010*



MUNCHIE
MUG REVIEW & GIVE-A-WAY
How many times have you given your toddler cereal or any kind of snacks for that matter in a cup or a bowl and the next thing you know they are spilled all over the floor?
(Oh yes those are chips all over the floor that the boys spilled one day)

I know it happens in our house, more often than not when I give Jace or Grady something to snack on. They are so independent at their ages though that they want to take the bowl wherever they are going, by themselves, with their snacks in it.

Well I was recently sent a product called the Munchie Mug Snack Cup to review and I can't believe we haven't had one of these sooner! The product is just genius in my opinion!!! I am all for products that are easy for my kids to use, but also help keep things neat and tidy at the same time! So your all asking what in the world is a Munchie Mug?


The Munchie Mug Snack Cup is a spill-resistant snack cup for infants and toddlers. It's innovative in both concept and design. The patented spill-resistant Munchie Mug eliminates snack-time messes for children 10 months and older. It's ideal for use at home, in the car or anyplace when you're on the go! Children love the colorful cup and soft fabric while parents like its convenience and ease of use. Munchie Mug is a must have for messy little snackers everywhere.

Munchie Mug is 100% proudly made in America with safety in mind. Made of tough, durable, and recyclable No. 5 polypropylene from American suppliers, the plastic and color additives are approved for direct food contact according to FDA 21 CFR, sections 177.1520 and 170.39. Munchie Mug comes with a 16 oz. plastic jar that effectively holds 10 oz. of dry foodstuffs and is suitable for children 10 months and older. The unique patent pending lid screws on tight, assuring that it stays on and the food stays in.

Munchie Mug Snack Cup Features:

  • Secure Screw-On Top with Easy Grip Handle
  • Soft fabric closure for sensitive little hands
  • Easy to clean: Top Rack Dishwasher Safe
  • Great for healthy snacking: Cereals, dried fruits, crackers, etc.
  • Additional stay-fresh lid included for keeping snacks fresh when mug is not in use
  • Economically friendly: Made in the United States of America
  • Child friendly: Made of all FDA food grade compliant materials
  • Environmentally friendly: Made of 100% recyclable materials & eliminates waste created by plastic snack baggies that are used once and thrown away. Use the Munchie Mug, again, again, and again!!!
(Look mommy, I got one!)

Jace and Grady have been loving their Munchie Mug. We got it in blue and they figured out the concept so fast. It has a very soft stretchy material with a slit on the top and they simply reach their hand in and just pull the snacks out. They have dropped it, turned it upside down, shook it and threw it already and guess what? Nothing comes out! It is an awesome product and the size is awesome too. It holds so much in it. The boys have taken it with us in the car and it's big enough to bring snacks for them to share! This will be great to bring with us on vacation this summer. I love that it is plastic and the lid screws on tight so that if they drop it, it doesn't matter. It's not going to break or get crumbs all over anything!

(Yummy)

You can purchase the Munchie Mug on their website for $15.95 and you can choose from Pink, Blue or Yellow. Price includes shipping and handling to anywhere in the USA. California residents only: Sales tax will be added at checkout.

GIVE-A-WAY STARTS HERE

So the awesome people over at Munchie Mug are going to give one of The Jackson Five Family readers the chance to win their very own Munchie Mug Snack Cup in the color of their choice (A $15.95 Value)

She started talking to the handsome Verizon guy and told him that her daughter and granddaughter sent her. He asked her who they were and she told him. He knew who I was and said something to the effect that I was cute. She told him I was single and told him to call me! She came over and told me that and I was like "yeah right." She said she was serious and oh my goodness was I embarrassed!!! He didn't call right away and my grandma went back out there and told him he had better call me! OH MY GOSH!!! He called and I told him that he DID NOT have to call me just because my grandma threatened him LOL! He said he did however want to go out after all of that ha! So we went out and have been together ever since! :) THANK YOU granny-bug!

5. WHAT DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING? I am a stay at home mom. I was a hairstylist for a few years. I still love to do hair and play with makeup but I love my boy's so much and love spending time with them everyday! Craig is an Asset Protection Manager for a large retail chain.

I hope you all enjoyed getting to know us a little better.

4 IMAGE PINK LOVE STRUCK TOASTER FROM POP ART TOASTER REVIEW AND GIVE-A-WAY




Mother's Day is just around the corner... Have you guys thought about what your getting your mother's or wives from your kids? Well what about a product that is so practical, but so fun at the same time?

I guarantee your kids will love it too! Kameryn thought it was so cool. She especially loved it because it's pink, her favorite color and because it put hearts on her toast!


I was recently able to review the 4 Image Love Struck Toaster from Pop Art Toaster. This toaster is so cute! It's a bubble gum pink toaster that comes with 4 plates that you put in the toaster and when making your toast it actually burns different sayings into the bread! The Love Struck Toaster burns in Yes Dear, I'm Hot, Luv U and a picture of double hearts.


The Love Struck Toaster is very practical as well, its features include:

Frozen button- Defrost items straight out of the freezer
Cancel button- Stops the toasting process
Reheat button- to warm your toast
7 heat settings- allowing you to select the heat to how toasty you like your bread
Removable Crumb Tray- making it easy to clean
4 Removable Toaster Plates- Yes Dear, I'm Hot, Luv U & Double Hearts (removal hook included)

I know that I would love to get this as a Mother's Day gift. Our toaster is so old and boring, who wouldn't want a pink toaster that tells you "I'm Hot" while eating it ha ha!


Or wouldn't it be great to make your mom or wife a Mother's Day breakfast and surprise her with a piece of toast that says "Yes Dear" or "Luv U" I know your kids would think that was so fun to do for mom!


Not only does Pop Art Toaster sell Standard Toasters like the Love Struck Toaster, they have several other fun toasters to offer you like the Disney Toasters, Creativity Coloring Kit Toasters, Promotional Toasters, Luxury Chrome Toasters, Image Stencil Kits, Custom Image Stencil Plates and the 5-in-1 Tasty Baker. The Pop Art Toaster website also offers a Fun page that has Toaster recipes and Tasty Baker recipes as well.
