{review} eShakti

My Dear Friends,

I received the Tux Front Dot Embellished Dress (style#CL0026330), which retails at $89.95, for review courtesy of eShakti.  This gorgeous dress screams SPRINGTIME to me, so of course, I had to pick it!  I love the dot embellishments with the contrast trimmed poplin.  The A-line frame of the dress is accented with pintuck pleats and beautiful buttons, which frame the bodice.  The dress includes a sash tie to complete the fun, sweet look.

I enjoy the fact that this dress makes me think of old movies, where women always wore beautiful dresses that were stylish without being showy.  This dress seems classy to me, but can also be worn in a more modern way, which you can see in my examples below.  This gorgeous dress comes in Sunset Gold Yellow/Cream or Pewter/Cream.

There is something beautiful for every size at eShakti!  They now offer size 0-36W (as well as custom sizes and styles).  There are also options to remove/include embroidery, pockets or other embellishments on their products so that you may make a creation that is entirely your own.   eShakti also carries an exclusive bridesmaids line as well.  Make sure to check out the customer gallery, where images that customers (and bloggers) have shared are shown.

  • Slips on over head, partial side zip closure.
  • Scoop neckline, sleeveless.
  • Pleated full skirt with contrast banded lines at the hem.
  • Side seam pockets.
  • Knee length.
  • Cotton, woven poplin, preshrunk and bio-polished, lightly crisp feel, no stretch, midweight.
  • Machine wash.

Here are some different ways to style this beautiful dress:

{Sponsor Spotlight} Delaney Wellness

My Dear Friends,

I think we all have thought about anti-aging products at some time or another.  Each product promises to do something amazing.  Until now, I haven't really found a product that lived up to it's hype.

Then I found Delaney Wellness.  I was fortunate enough to review their Anti-Aging Moisturizer.  The moisturizer contains grape extract, super antioxidants and premium anti-aging ingredients help to moisturize and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.  It has a price tag of $105 per 1 oz. bottle.

This anti-aging moisturizer has a nice, light feel & is packed with antioxidants.  Some ingredients even come directly from the Delaney Vineyard.  I've been using the product for three weeks now and I've noticed a difference in the quality of my skin.  It does feel softer & smoother and the puffy circles under my eyes seem to be going down.

One of the main benefits of Delaney Wellness Grape Seed Anti-Aging Moisturizer is the function of treating those nasty seven signs of aging:
  • fine lines
  • dryness
  • uneven skin tone
  • enlarged pores
  • age spots
  • rough texture
  • skin dullness
Since one of the main ingredients is organic grape wine, you're getting the benefit of two powerful antioxidants --- polyphenols & resveratrol.  Polyphenols work to treat & prevent skin inflammations, contain skin protective agents & fight free radicals while resveratrol focuses on hydrating skin, reducing aging & detoxifying the skin.

Delaney Wellness is going to give one lucky winner their own bottle of Anti-Aging Moisturizer as part of the Showered With Love Giveaway!  Make sure to come back on April 1st for your chance to win!

Litographs - Books Turned Into Art!

My Dear Friends,

Someone once said, "A picture is worth a thousand words".  Well, so are posters and t-shirts - at least the ones made by the revolutionary company Litographs.  A picture is worth a thousand words, and now, so is a t-shirt.

Litographs founder, Danny Fein, has ingeniously created a way to turn the pages of your favorite book into stunning visual art using posters and t-shirts as the canvas for his brilliant idea.  Mr. Fein takes the actual text of a book and imposes it into an artistic shape, thereby creating his one-of-a-kind piece of artwork.  Additionally, with each Litographs purchase, a book will be sent to someone in need through Litographs’ partnership with the International Book Bank.  Simply put, Litographs are books on posters & t-shirts.  The entire book, or up to 75,000 words, are morphed into a stunning scene or memory from your favorite book.

"I started working on Litographs one year ago, with the goal of taking the explosion of digitized text and bringing it back into the physical world. E-books are great for spreading knowledge, but there's something special about having that tangible connection with a book.

I love knowing that people all over the world have a Litograph poster displayed in their home, and Litographs t-shirts to wear around town. To me, each poster I design, print, roll, and ship signals that love for literature is stronger than ever. And I'm proud to have worked with the International Book Bank to send thousands of books to communities in need overseas.
" - Danny Fein

Litographs releases new posters every Tuesday and Thursday.  You can also sign up for their mailing list to receive coupons for $10 off each new Litograph on the day it launches.

Here are some of my absolute favorite posters & t-shirts from the Litographs line:

I received two t-shirts, Alice In Wonderland & The Great Gatsby, for review.  The detail work on these shirts is stunning and the print is clear and crisp!  It's literally a book on a shirt!  How cool is that?!

Great news, readers!  Litographs is offering you a 15% discount on all products in their store!  Simply use code "FITZGERALD" to get the deal.  There's also free domestic shipping on orders of $48 and up!

{Sponsor Spotlight} My Three Bittles

My Dear Friends,

I'd like to introduce you to Amber of My Three Bittles.

Amber is a born & raised Tennessean who is now living in Georgia & is a mom to three (hence the name My Three Bittles!).  She's got an amazing life & a wonderful husband and wouldn't have it any other way. 

Tell us about yourself, pretty please!
Umm, I'm terrible at mini "about me" blurbs. I'm Amber. I'm a mommy of 3 crazy cute kiddos, 2 cats and an American bulldog. (he's huge. It's ridiculous). I'm married to my all time best friend. He's in the Army. I'm a tattoo collector, a random piercing tester and all around kind of awesome. *Insert a cheesy wink and finger point here*

What are some random facts about you?

  • My favorite music ranges from: country to Manson to Katy perry to Rob Zombie to the Beatles to Lady Gaga to Gym class heroes to spice girls (don't judge me!) to Selina Gomez (again, don't judge) to hinder to Lil Wayne to Avril and most places in between.
  • I do not understand the current obsession with all things mustaches.
  • My go to drinks are water and coffee.  You'll rarely catch me drinking anything but.
  • I have an addiction to my iPhone. (and mini panic attacks when it dies or needs to restore or update)
  • I played the flute from 5th grade all the way to senior year.
  • My two oldest and very best friends (aside from the hubs) used to be married to each other. Jen & Ken.
  • I used to be Pentecostal. And I'm talking, the long haired, skirt wearing, no make up or jewelry or tattoos or piercings, Pentecostal.
  • I dropped out of college not even a month into the 2nd semester. I had a full ride. I had money coming into my pocket every semester. A LOT of money. I don't really regret it. 
  • I was born in Michigan. Lived there til I was 5/6/7. But I say I'm from Tennessee. Tennessee is home.
  • The best little thing to ever surprise me with: mocha frapp or caramel brule from Starbucks and a bag of mini snickers.
  • I dislike when you get all upset about losing a friend only to realize that you never really liked them anyway. What a waste of time. (I can name like 5 people that if they read this, they'd assume it was them. It wasn't.)
  • I don't like the decor in my house. 
  • I have a favorite star. Go find the moon, find the brightest star to the upper right of it. That's my favorite.
  • 80% of my blogs that aren't photo bombs are random rambles that while typing I think, "this is going to sound so dumb" and then when I go back and read it later, it's never really that bad.
  • I've developed a slight addiction to raw carrots. I bought two bags in the past half week and I'm already halfway through the 2nd bag.
  • I can't stand unpainted toenails.
  • I have an obsession with huge bug eyed sunglasses.
  • I don't really like fingernail polish on myself. If and when I paint my nails, my husband asks if I was bored.... to which I respond, "of course I was!"
  • I over think almost everything.
  • I can seriously lose myself in a good book and have no idea what happened while I was reading.

So...what inspired you to create your blog/business/brand?
Honestly I just spent so long browsing random craft blogs & food blogs & had a few friends that blogged that I finally just took the plunge. I've always been a random writer back when myspace was cool and livejournal and I even had an OpenDiary way back when, so blogging just seemed right.

How can my fabulous readers find you?

{Sponsor Spotlight} Radiant Cosmetics

My Dear Friends,

If you follow me on Vine (@mstiffa), you may remember when I posted this sneak peek video to let you lovely readers know that a Radiant Cosmetics review was coming.   Well....it's here!

Companies with a purpose intrigue me.  I mean, all companies have a purpose - to make money - but some, like Radiant Cosmetics, have a higher calling.  Radiant Cosmetics seeks to end human trafficking.  It's hard to find cause more noble than that.

You may not be familiar with what human trafficking is.  It is modern-day slavery where people profit from the control and exploitation of others. As defined under U.S. federal law, human trafficking involves the commercial exchange and exploitations of humans including forced prostitution, various forms of “labor or services,” or servitude and debt bondage.  Human trafficking is considered to be one of the fastest growing criminal industries in the world, second only to drug dealing, which it’s expected to surpass in the next two years. The United Nations estimates that 27 million people are trafficked annually.

Nicole, the founder of Radiant Cosmetics, has a passion to help kiss slavery goodbye.   Did you know that the worldwide cosmetics industry is a $170 BILLION dollar generating industry...per year?!  The cosmetics industry dominated by females; coincidentally, they are the people most vulnerable to human trafficking.  Statistics show that 80% of those trafficked are female, between the ages of 10-35.  Radiant Cosmetics takes a portion of each sale and uses it to help fund education that empowers women to fight back against this injustice, as a large portion of those trafficked are uneducated and live in poverty-like conditions.

Radiant Cosmetics truly is "Beauty With A Purpose".  Check out the gorgeous products available below.  Know that, with your purchase, you are helping end human trafficking.

    Embrace Summer w/ Firmoo!

    With the summer in the air, have you all been ready to embrace it with the utmost enthusiasm and vigor?  Now, sunglasses have conventionally been the ideal tool to prevent the fatal and life threatening UV radiation and annoying glare.  In this upcoming summer, what will lead the fashion trend in the sunglasses department?

    We dare to say wraparound sunglasses for their better protection from UV rays. But for the people who have vision problems, a pair of sunglasses is not enough. In this case, prescription sunglasses can provide an excellent service.
