Auctions on Instagram? Oh yes!!

We love hearing from our followers. So, asked and answered. We will start having online (Instagram) auctions.

Each week we’ll have Wacky Wednesday auctions. From 7 – 9 pm CST.

We will auction off new arrivals, popular pieces as well as “jewelry packages.” These packages will consist of two or more items.

Shipping will be free.  Plus, if you already subscribe to our blog and/or email campaigns you’ll get a sneak peek the night before. You can even place a bid early by sending us a DM on Instagram. Just tell us the item and your bid.

Tell your friends to sign up so they can bid on the auctions too.

Please help stop Cyber-Bullying

Happy Saturday!

I have a childhood friend who gives more of himself for charity more than any single person I have ever known.

His name is Wayne Soares and he is amazing. Wayne is pictured on the far right in the photo. He is part of a nation-wide campaign to stop cyber bullying. I am asking for your help.

Please visit his web site to learn, donate, get involved.  This is a direct plea to all of you amazing followers of mine.

He is available for speaking engagements. This would be great for elementary and high schools as well as colleges.

Click here to visit the web site and help get out the word the bullying is never okay.  He has written some great articles geared toward school age children and what teachers and parents can do to help. Buy a tee and post a photo of you wearing it on social media and point your followers to his site.

I have donated personally.  I am also giving away a free pair of mini tassel earrings to the first eight people who make a purchase or monetary donation.

Imagine if you told just three people about this and they told three people, and so on, and so on. Just imagine how many people we can reach.  Plus our support may just help save a life. Isn’t that worth a few dollars?

I will pay the cost of shipping.  You will pay absolutely nothing.  I would truly appreciate if you would all share this cause on your social media so we can get a big boost of financial support so Wayne can do what he does best, talk, inform and motivate.

I am proud to call him a friend and admire him for all he does to make this a better world.

Don’t give up on Summer yet!

Happy Friday Dear Friends,

I have spent less time on blog posts and more time on email campaigns. Then it occurred to me you may not be on that list.

Just in case, let’s catch up a bit.

I just love being able to do my “Op-eds” on here.  We are not even halfway through August and everyone is trying to rush through the summer to get to fall. Even stores have rushed us.  Halloween decor is already stocked in most big box stores.

Why?  Let’s savor our summertime. Don’t start buying your fall scarves only to have them stashed in your closet for another six weeks.

I know the appeal of back-to-school shopping was so exciting growing up.  I get that.  But since most of us are no longer in school, we don’t really “need” to do that.  So, instead of that past-time, let’s create a new one.

Get out your blender and whip up some Pina Coladas, put on your bathing suit and a cool pair of dark Sunnies and head out the door.

Nothing fancy. A Solo cup works just fine. Who cares if you go to a tropical beach, the lake, or even just your back yard. The point is this, we still have plenty of time to enjoy the summer before the crisp fall weather turns into gut-wrenching freezing cold days.  I’ll bet you’ll look back and wish you had enjoyed summer a little bit longer.

What Op-Ed wouldn’t be complete without mentioning some of our new jewelry.

Things that go bling.
