Made By Lin Lin Etsy Shop Review & Giveaway!


Welcome to my very first Etsy shop review!  I'm excited to share with you a cute accessory shop where all the items are handmade in Vancouver!

Lindsay, the shop owner, contacted me about hosting her site on Garden of Giveaways.  She generously agreed to send me her Blue Stretch Bracelet to review.  It came very daintily packaged, and it was obvious that much care and love had been put into its making. 
                                    Don't you agree?


The Blue Stretch Bracelet is great to wear with a casual or formal outfits.  I absolutely love the blue beads as that is one my favorite colors.  As you can see, the bracelet has a "antique feel" to it, making it unique and giving it a classic vintage style.  I also like that it is a STRETCH bracelet as opposed to one with a clasp as those tend to slide up and down on my wrist.






Made by Lin Lin offers some quality products that are very bright and beautiful.  Among them are these...




Now for the giveaway!!  Lindsay is kindly offering one of my readers two pairs of Rose Stud Earrings.  Choose from 24 colors

Alfred Review!

CALLING ALL MUSICIANS!

Sometimes finding the music for a particular song can be a challenge. Alfred Music is a company I really enjoy because they seem to carry all the music I could ever imagine! It's a great site for music teachers, conductors, church pianists, vocalists, students, and individual musicians to locate just what they're searching for. They carry music for many different genres and occasions such as classical, jazz, the blues, funerals, baptisms, and Easter. Whether you are a beginner musician, in the intermediate level, or are advanced in your playing, Alfred Music can supply you with great music books or sheet music.

They agreed to sponsor another review, and sent me their Top 50 Wedding Classics arranged by Dan Coates. This book is labeled as easy piano which is an advantage for me as I do not have to spend hours upon at the piano, but can still have a lovely and complete-sounding piece at the end. The songs are simple, but sound harder than they really are. As my teacher has said, "Everybody needs a few of those!"

Another apect of this wedding book that I love is the numer of songs it contains! You can be sure to find songs that suit your style and taste from 50 favorite numbers! Top 50 Wedding Classics content includes familiar wedding songs as "Canon in D," "Bridal Chorus," and "Wedding March" to favorites from movies like "Beauty and the Beast" to ones with a more contemporary feel. My favorites are "The Prayer," "Over the Rainbow," "The Blessings, and "You Lift Me Up." For a more classical wedding, "Trumpet Voluntary," "Ode to Joy," "Air on a G String," and "Bist Du bei Mir (Be Thou with Me)" could be played. This book also features guitar chords for each song.

So if you are a musician with an upcoming wedding to play for, I hightly recommend using Top 50 Wedding Classics to make for a very special and memorable wedding!

Kosher Casual Review & $25 Giveaway!!

"Kosher Casual is owned and managed by Israel Marketing LLC and Gary Swickley, an American immigrant to Israel with a Harvard MBA. Gary has been working for over 15 years with manufacturers in Israel producing garments for export. He also owns and manages Blue and White Kids, a company that manufactures clothing made in Israel for schools, camps, and youth groups in U.S., Canada, and Israel. (http://www.blueandwhitekids.com/) He also developed and owned the popular clothing retail chain "The Machsan" in Israel."

Kosher Casual is an awesome company where you can find women's modest skirts, dresses, workout clothing, girls' clothing, and even men and boys' shirts!  They generously allowed for me to review their Open Drape Cardigan from Soft Vicrose Lycra.  I chose the purple shade in size large.  (Because this garment is made of stretchy material, I went with a large, and I am most certainly glad I did- otherwise, it would've been too small!)



WOW!  I am extremely pleased with my new cardigan!  It is very comfortable, and there are different options for wearing it...

                                                          Untied...


                                                           or tied!
I like to wear this cardigan over a black tee (as shown in pic) or with a thin white long sleeve shirt underneath.  And it matches perfectly with my denim skirts.  The cardigan is very lightweight, and would be great to wear on chilly spring or fall evenings.
Let me show you a few other garments from Kosher Casual's selection:


Kosher Casual is kindly offering one of my readers a $25 gift certificate to their wonderful site!
