Review and Giveaway by: Beautiful Incentives
Sponsored by: Blue Steel


I haven’t had the chance to review many jewelry items so I was ecstatic to have the opportunity to work with Blue Steel. They have the most gorgeous designs that are fairly priced and always on sale. What makes them really special is that they offer stainless steel jewelry, which is much easier to handle and does not corrode over time. They do offer Sterling silver as well.

I love jewelry, but I am picky and my rings have to be thin and dainty. Not clunky in the slightest. Blue Steel has just what I needed. Finding jewelry at an affordable price can be daunting and to come across this store is a wallet saver. Stainless steel is a lot cheaper in price and looks just a pretty. Does this ring look fake to you? If you have normal eyes, the answer is no!
Today I am reviewing a beautiful stainless steel Cubic Zirconia ring, named the Aphrodite.

The name is perfect for this ring. It is a thing of beauty, taking after Aphrodite, the Greek Goddess of Beauty. It is gorgeous! The picture does it no justice though. You should see how it shines and sparkles in any light in person. It is just kind of magical. Giving this to a loved one would surely get you brownies points or for yourself. We all deserve a treat! I don’t even have to angle the ring to show how brilliant it sparkles. It just does it effortlessly.



This last picture is without flash. See what I mean about the Sparkle?? Really pretty right?


What can we attribute to the beauty of this ring?

This ring is full of beauty and sparkle, just like it’s name, Aphrodite-the goddess of beauty. It is entrancing with its round-cut center Cubic Zirconia stones, 3-carats of stunning beauty on a stainless steel high polished setting.

  • Metal Surgical Grade Stainless Steel
  • Dimensions 8 mm wide and size 5-10 available
  • Silver


Aphrodite makes for the perfect wedding, engagement or just a special occasion “I love you” ring. It comes in a cute blue box with a silver bow, perfect for gifting!


They have a helpful sizing feature to help you figure out your ring size and they carry so many gorgeous designs you will have a hard time picking just one!
Blue steel has a 30 day satisfaction guaranteed or your money back policy, so you can feel confident shopping with them. They also offer FREE shipping when you spend over $100! they have FREE gift packaging as well and they ship fast.Disclaimer: Product was provided to me for the purpose of facilitating a review with my honest opinions.

From War to Peace Giveaway! **Closed**

This is another giveaway we are sharing! I absolutely love this bloggers story, and I think you should read it. The companies story is also very awesome, so I am very happy to be able to share this with you!

Giveaway Hosted by Beautiful Incentives

I love jewelry, but I love it more when it has a meaning behind it. It’s kind of like my love for tattoos, but only if they have a significant reason for being there, a story or metaphor if you will. I first found this company through a gift I received from my mother on my birthday. This company is like no other, in that the art and skill behind their creations is workmanship from military weapons.

From War to Peace is an eco-friendly company that recycles disarmed nuclear weapons into fine jewelry made of an alloy called Peace BronzeTM. I found this so unique and beautiful in thought that I had to review for them.

That wasn’t the only reason though. My brother was a Naval Officer who passed away during a helicopter mission in 2005. Well, technically his helicopter went down. He, being the pilot, and two others helping navigate the helicopter, went down. They nor the reminance of the crash were found. Seeing jewelry made out of weaponry reminds me of my brother and I feel like wearing this makes me feel closer to him in some way. I have unresolved anger towards the military and the needless loss of my brother, so I find some peace in what I don’t like, transformed into something beautiful. From War to Peace couldn’t have said it better “We turn weapons meant to destroy us into art meant to restore us, swords into plowshares, bombs into beauty, hate into love, & war into peace “.

I chose the Tree of Life pendant for review, to symbolize my brother’s life on this planet. It wasn’t very long, as he passed at just 28, but he made a huge impact on me and everyone around him. He was loved by all and worked harder than anyone I have encountered to this day. To bring light to this fact, the reason he was even chosen to make this flight was because the one before him failed the test required. They asked my brother who knew everything and he filled in. This tree of life necklace keeps him in my heart with ever growing love, growing eternally like the tree that symbolizes him. I feel a sense of peace when I wear or look at it.

The back of the pendant.

As you can see, the pendant is very detailed with gorgeous color. It sparkles in the light with a rainbow of colors. This piece as with all their pieces was recycled from weapons into alloy Peace Bronze TM.

The bracelet I received from my mom for my birthday is made of the same Peace Bronze TM, only dipped into silver. I love this one too. The seven circles of peace stand for an ancient belief of perfection. In this design by James Main, the circles form a 7 pointed star in the middle, signifying peaceful unity of all nations and faiths.

These are both gorgeous, really unique pieces of art and I think anyone that has a loved one in the military or not should consider purchasing one. They also carry dog tags that you can have personally engraved. Also, part of the proceeds go toward peace and social justice organizations.

This is just a small peak into what they offer. They have so many more awesome designs.

If you’d like to learn more and keep up with promotions from From War to Peace, follow their social media sites for the latest info.

AND now my lovely readers have a chance to win one of their own beautiful Tree of Life Peace Bronze TM Pendant! Good Luck! Ends 8-7 Midnight EST.

Therafit Shoes Giveaway! **Closed**

We are pleased to bring to you this giveaway! I personally want to try these shoes, so hopefully one of you win so that I can hear about how great they are!

Giveaway hosted by Beautiful Incentives

I have had a bad back since I was in my early twenties. Due in part to bad genes and just plain growing up a monkey. As I got older It got worse and I eventually had to have back surgery TWICE at the age of just 25. The doctors said that my x-ray looked like that of someone who got into a bad car wreck. During my recovery I found that it was essential to have a good shoe and to this day I am very picky about what I wear. Flip flops are very bad for the back and legs, but we all love them, so I wear them sparingly.

Well, if you have a very picky and sensitive body like me with the added bonus of fibromylagia, you will love these sandals. With Therafit, by Dr. Lisa Masterson, there is an answer. We all know her from the entertaining Doctors show. If you don’t, you should definitely watch. She has manufactured a shoe that makes it so that you can be absolutely comfortable in your flip flops or sandals and fashionable at the same time, which is very hard to find!

I have searched high and dry for a flip flop or sandal that wouldn’t leave my back and legs in bad pain just after an hour or less. I have only found two types so far that have managed this and The Therafit style is my favorite of them. The design is very ergonomic with a WOMAN’S comfort in mind. Finally, A sandal that looks as good as it feels!

First of all, Therafit’s presentation was so cute and thoughtful. They wrapped up the box like a regular gift! I love the colors and i’m a recycle nut, so I will get use out of the ribbon.
I chose the Tiffany Black Sandal. This particular style also comes in white. Look at the gorgeous detail !

I chose the black, which goes with absolutely everything as we all know, and I love the added bling on the top. I have worn these with skirts, dresses, maxis, jeans and capris. They go with everything! The jewels on the top really take away from any kind of geriatric feel that you might get wearing clunkier comfort shoes. They are made very durable and I do not see them giving up any time soon. They look like they will last years.

Now that we have ooh’d and ahh’d over the look of the shoe, let’s get into the specifics. The reason behind the ergonomics and just why it is so comfortable.

The Therafit has a special 4 layer system for maximum shock absorption and comfort. It is meant to be supportive for those who are on their feet a lot. I do a lot of walking because I can’t run with the way my back is, so these were just meant for me. The cushioning of the sole is adjustable depending on how soft you want the shoe to feel and it is meant to have the ultimate comfort for at least 12 hours of the day. Those without a back condition I can only imagine how comfortable these would be on you!

They would also provide the prevention of added damaged from wearing flip flops and other non-ergonomic shoes!

See those little balls? Those massage the bottom of your feet as you walk and you can tell that these help keep that comfort lasting all day. They have very thick soles, but not too thick and perfectly contour to the shape of your feet.

The three circles at the bottom are where they can adjust to how soft you want the fit to be.
Look at that bling shine!
It took me all of 5 min to get used to walking in them and then I was addicted hardcore. My feet, back, hips and legs love these. They fit perfectly. I normally wear a size 8.5 – 9 so these run big at size 8. If you are a half size, it is important to size down, because they run big.

Something very important for me to point out .
I just test drove a pair of new over 2 inch high flip flops. They looked comfy as can be and of course really cute, but not even an hour later I was in severe and I mean SEVERE pain in my feet. I didn’t even feel that kind of pain with Therafit at the END of the day. So that is just my glowing testament of how well these work.
One more time with a closeup of the bling bling, because I love it.

Another reason this company is so great is that they give back to a charity of YOUR choice with every purchase. So it’s a great way to feel good on your feet, along with feeling good helping others.

These sandals and fitness shoes come in every color and style you could want. Here is just a small peak at what’s in store.
Right now until July 31st, you can grab an awesome pair of full price shoes for a whopping 50% off!! These are pricey, though worth it, but this deal is amazing and I would take advantage while you can!

You can also take comfort in the fact that they have FREE Shipping and Exchanges!
BUT, the good people over at Therafit are also letting me offer up a chance for one lucky reader to receive a pair of their own!! Good luck to everyone! You will adore these!! Ends 8-7 12 am EST.

Auntie Anne’s Apple Cinnamon Pretzel Giveaway! **Closed**

I love soft pretzels, in fact me and my friend get them every time we are at the mall. I think that this would be a really fun kit, and would be great for kids too. Good luck, and make sure that you let us know if you win!

Auntie Anne’s Apple Cinnamon Pretzel Review and Giveaway!

The Auntie Anne’s At-Home Baking Kits are a great way to have these awesome pretzels in the comfort of your own home! With the gas prices soaring now a days and the malls packed with people buying Christmas and holiday gifts, these kits are the way to go! I don’t know about you, but going to the mall, especially after this weekend and Black Friday, it’s the LAST thing on my to-do list!
What is also great about the At-Home Baking Kits, you can bake anything you want with them! They have a recipe on the side of the box that you can even make an apple tart with it! Also, inside there is a recipe for an Apple Cinnamon Pecan Monkey Bread.(Yummy!) Of course, I chose the traditional way and just made the simple pretzels.

Now when I first decided to make these, I am glad I had the time set aside! I didn’t realize that it would take an hour or so to make them! Even though it did take a while to mix, twist, and bake them, the results were definitely worth it and oh-so tasty!
At first, we got everything out of the box and read the directions. We mixed all of the ingredients together to form a “dough ball”. We had to add about another 1/4-1/2 cup of water to our dough mix because it just because it wasn’t mixing very well into a ball. After we finally made our big “dough ball”, we let the dough “rest” for thirty minutes like the instructions said.
After our dough was done “resting”, we took handfuls of the dough and rolled them out. It said to roll the dough out to about 1in, or the thickness of your finger and 36 inches long. We couldn’t get our dough to get that long without breaking so we did the best we could and they still turned out awesome! We ended up having smaller pretzels, but it made about 12 instead of the original 10. After we twisted them into pretzel shapes we baked them for about 8-10min and then sprinkled them with the cinnamon sugar. They looked so good, I could not wait to take a bite out of one of these bad boys!
If you would love to have some of these soft pretzels enter using the rafflecopter below to win your very own Auntie Anne’s At-Home Baking Kits!
