We design, You cutomize

I had never heard of eShakti before I was contacted by them. I'm not much of a fashion chick. I like classic and simple clothes. Much to my surprise, eShakti was exactly my type of clothes. Their designs are simple and classic. The clothes are well made and are made to fit YOU. 
"To simply put it, custom clothing does not have to be expensive. By keeping up with technology as it is advancing, we are able to provide customization at a modest cost."

I was sent the Jersey Peplum Jersey Knit Tunic for my review. I love the fact that they ask for my measurements and even ask how long I wanted the shirt. I am a fairly tall woman and I normally hate that shirts are too short for me. 
Here is the photo of what I picked:

The quality of the fabric was fantastic. It was thick and not cheaply made. It is now my favorite shirt. It goes with almost anything and it one of those shirts that I can wear casually or dress it up. 
I can't wait to buy some other beautiful clothes. 

eShakti has a line of new clothing that you just have to see. Here are a few of the ones that I love:

The prices are very reasonable and you can find dresses, skirts and shirts for almost every occasion. They even have a line of Bridesmaids dresses. If you are looking for one shop to find all of your business attire, eShakti is it.

Bullet Designs Review

Disclosure / Disclaimer: I received this product, free of charge, from Bullet Designs for review purposes on this blog. No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about them. As with any product, your opinion my differ from mine. 

This is the website for Hubby and I!!! You can't get any better than gifts made from bullets. For two people who think a day at the shooting range is called a date, you had to know that we would love 
Now add on top of that an another amazing fact....They are in Louisiana, my home state! 
Bullet Designs made me pick from one product to do a review. How in the world could I decide? I want everything!!
I finally settled on a practical item. 

The 30-06 & 308 Police Refillable Pen ($34.95)
Here's what Bullet Designs has to say about it:
"Know a policeman? Show him or her your appreciation for their service with this stylish bullet ink pen. It\'s made with nickel bullets and chrome parts. Pen is a twist-style pen and uses a cross type refill. It comes with black ink and measures approximately 5 1/2\" in length. Made with authentic 308 and 30-06 casings but don\'t worry - it\'s not dangerous in any way! Pen shown is Nickel Bullets with Chrome Clips."
While the Police Pen is unique, it is something I can use everyday at work. It is made with 30-06 and 308 casings. I love that it is refillable. This makes the perfect gift for any man or woman. 
Bullet Designs has pens for several professions, or if you don't want one of those, they have hobbies like Fishing and Duck Hunting. The guys I work with really liked it. It is heavy's made from bullet casings. What guy wouldn't like this. 
Now if you need a gift for a girl, and she's not excited about bullet pens, Bullet Designs has a huge variety of gifts for women. Here are just a few of the fun things they offer:

Stop by today and get some of your Christmas List taken care of. In case you are wondering, here are a few things that are on my wish list (hint, hint).....

No other compensation, monetary or in kind, has been received or implied for this post. Nor was I told how to post about them. As with any product, your opinion my differ from mine. 

 Win a Set of 4 Spice Mixes!!!

You all know how much I love Etsy Stores. I think it is fantastic that there is a place where you can buy and sell home made things. I have found so many Christmas gifts on Etsy. I came across GaGirl Jewelry and Gift. The store owner was so nice and helpful. She has a huge variety of spices. All of them look so good. I was sent a set of  4 Spice Mixes for a review. 
This spice set was so much fun to work with. 

I was sent 4 types of Spice Mixes: Salsa Mix, Hamburger Seasoning Mix, Taco Seasoning Mix and Olive Oil Bread Dipping Mix.
All of the spice mixes were fresh. 
I tried the Hamburger Mix first. It was fantastic. I added the exact about that was suggested and they were so yummy. It was the perfect seasoning blend. Hubby loved it too. The burgers were flavorful and juicy, just like we like it. 
Next I tried the Olive Oil Bread Dipping Mix. I made a loaf of Steakhouse Bread. It is my favorite bread to eat with Olive Oil. I added 2 Tablespoons to the Olive Oil. It was heaven! I'm not sure the exact amount of spices that are in this pack, but I have tried to make a spice mix before and never succeeded in finding the right combination. I could just imagine this being served in one of my favorite restaurants. 

GaGirl Jewelry and Gift has so many different types of spice mixes. She even has Pumpkin Bread Mix, Chili Mixes and Pizza Seasoning Mixes. Besides all of her wonderful spices, she has all types of other gifts.

Otterbox Defender Series Review

Just in time for the Holiday Season!

I may be stuck in the Stone Age, but I love my iPhone 4. I do not want to upgrade until my phone eventually dies. Like everyone, my phone goes everywhere with me and I have dropped it so many times it's a wonder it survived.  I am a big believer in OtterBox. OtterBox Protects my phone while keeping it thin enough that it still fits in my pocket when I'm at work. OtterBox is stylish and protects my iPhone from all of my mishaps. 

OtterBox sent the Defender Series to me to try out. Since it is hunting season, I chose the RealTree Camo style. 

Here is a little bit about OtterBox Defender Series:
"A premium mobile device like the iPhone 4 / 4S deserves premium protection. Good thing OtterBox has a Defender Series camo iPhone 4 / 4S case ready to protect it in style. The camo iPhone 4 / 4S case provides unrivaled protection from rough treatment in the worst environments. The Defender Series is built from a high-impact polycarbonate shell, durable silicone and a built-in screen protector, making it one of the most rugged iPhone 4 / 4S camo cases, defending against scratches, dust and drops. Additionally, this is the only protective smartphone case available with Realtree Xtra and Xtra Green camo patterns."

The camo style is very nice. What surprised me about the Defender Series is how strong the outer band is. I have an OtterBox from a few years ago, this is much more durable. 
The case is hard plastic but feels lighter than my old one. I work outdoors some of the time. Dust and pollen and other things can get trapped in the parts of an iPhone. Not with my OtterBox. It covers and keeps out dirt and grime. 

OtterBox has served me well over the last couple of years. I have been using OtterBox since 2010. I know there are new cases on the market, but why change? OtterBox has never let me down. My iPhone 4 has been protected by OtterBox since the day I got it. I highly recommend it for protection of your phone. 

Here are a few other styles:


If you are looking for a new case for your phone, or a great gift for any occasion, Check out OtterBox!

Back to Business

After several days of the flu bug, I am back. I fell behind on some reviews and giveaways. I will work hard this weekend to get most of them together when I'm not working my full time job. I have to tell you a funny story about what happened at work. 

Only in Louisiana...While at work we get a call about an alligator in the roadway. Not just any alligator, but a yellow one. I have to say that I have never heard of a yellow alligator. After a long while of searching, the yellow alligator was no where to be found. I'm not sure if that alligator is going to be like Bigfoot, but the man believed he saw it. Who knows? I know there are white ones, but yellow?
