(Reminder, this is from the old blog: Joan and Mariah’s Reviews, hench references to Joan that you will see on my New blog “Honestly Mariah”)
Sorry for any inconvenience to people waiting on prize winners, however as of earlier this month, Joan is running the drawings for just her winners and I am drawing for just mine. This way we don’t worry about not getting the winners information in a timely manner to the companies… because one of us Co-Owners doing the drawings would have to forward all the winners to whomever did the giveaway post and then they would submit to the companies for the prizes. Basically we’ve cut out one step in the middle to make sure the prizes get out to the winners in the most timely manner possible.
Thank you for understanding the delay, Joan has been sick since I’ve known her and it’s been getting consistently worse, part of the reason she asked me to join her with the blogging adventure 2 years ago. Joan knows I understand being sick as I am disabled (and sick) as well, so we make a great team.
Anyhow Joan has been behind on many of her reviews for months now and even logging onto the computer to run the rafflecopter winners is a strain on her. Please continue your patience as Joan will try to get what she can get done, when she can manage it.
Watch to, in the future for some possible news of changes on the way on the blog, as Joan has some decisions to make as she deals not only with health issues but issues at home as well… there may be some changes on the way in the new year.
Singing to myself (to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star)
(a song by Mariah Lockwood, dedicated to Mont Bleu)
“Twinkle Twinkle like a Star, with Mont Bleu, There You Are. Twinkle like the Stars Above, with this Bling you’ll fall in Love!” “Twinkle Twinkle like a Star….”
One day, as I contemplated my needing to give myself another manicure, I just happened to think of my lovely Mont Bleu Nail File. I decided to write Mont Bleu to see if they wanted another review and giveaway on the blog and as I went to my email to write them, I discovered that they happened to have been trying to contact me! I was so very thrilled that they too thought of me… talk about being on the same wave length at the same time from way over here in Colorado USA to The Czech Republic, how cool is that?
Some of you will remember my Mont Bleu Nail File Review and Giveaway from about a year ago. My beautiful glass nail file is holding on strong and still working like a charm for me. Below is a picture of my glass nail file as a reminder of these beauties.
I received a marvelous package in my mail one day, with matching SWAROVSKI® Crystals in them. I received a bobby pin, a ring and earrings. They are so very lovely and once again the wonderful people at Monte Bleu didn’t fail to show their wonderful quality and craftsmanship in their products. I love my jewelry set.
What a FUN Ring!
The Ring that I received is perfectly adjustable, with 2 SWAROVSKI® Crystals on either end of the metal ring. I would say that the ring size as is was about a size 6 or 6 ½ in US ring sizing (hard to say, since I failed to measure it before adjusting it down a little to fit my size 5 ¼ finger). The size of the ring can be adjusted down or up to your needs. The metal is good and strong so you will have to put a bit of elbow grease into sizing it, but it’s a good sign of the longevity of this Ring.
Getting The Hair All Blinged Out!
The Hairpin or Hair Clip (or Bobby Pin, as we call them here in the US) with 2 SWAROVSKI® Crystals is just breathtaking. I admitted to the representative that I almost cried when I saw their newest offerings of these gorgeous bobby-pins. Why? My Grandmother had once come to visit us along with her she brought a hairpiece that was on a maniquin head, on the hairpiece was a simple little clear crystal bobby pin and the pictures reminded me of something I hadn’t thought about in ages. God rest my sweet Grandmother’s Soul, when I admired her bobby pin she promptly gave it to this wide eyed little girl and I was in heaven! I don’t know whatever happened to this little prize, knowing how careless I was at about 7 years old, I probably lost it as little girls do.
The Bobby-pin is a great way to hold your hair back out of your eyes and to add an accent to any hairstyle on any occasion. I can see this worn for fun with a pair of jeans or to add an adornment to your hair with a fancy dress. You can wear it tucked in a bun, I seem to remember wearing the one my Grandmother gave me in my hair in ballet class. Or as an addition to a lovely French Twist or as a fun addition to the side of your hair, in a pony tail. Do you have shorter hair? Then just find a fun place to put it in your hair, cannot fail. There aren’t any rules friends, just have fun and place it where you want it in your hair and you couldn’t go wrong with this beauty. The only part missing in these Bobby Pins, is that there is not plastic to the very ends of these so be cautious when placing them in the hair so you don’t scratch your scalp.
Bling Up Those Lobes without Irritation!
Finally the Earrings, the SWAROVSKI® Crystals the crystals in these beauties again make it just so very versatile. These are just lovely and smaller in size then the SWAROVSKI® Crystals in the other pieces of jewelry, don’t let the smaller size of these crystals deter you from loving them, they certainly haven’t deter me from loving these! The size is excellent for any age and any occasion, I think that the size of these crystals are just perfect, if they had been as large as on the ring or in the bobby pin I think you take the chance of making it look cheap or limit yourself with wearing these.
The earrings are covered with Hypo-allergenic Rhodium, so no itching and swelling with my sensitive ears and I can get away with wearing these just as long a period of time as I can with gold posts! Yay! The posts are made well, not too long a post in back so that they stab your head behind your ear and they don’t have any sharp edges to irritate either.
Put the Bling Bling of Mont Bleu on your List! I know I’ve placed Mont Bleu on my wish list for Christmas (again this year) as well as started a Christmas Shopping List for my Friends and Family full of Mont Bleu items I just know they’d love. Mont Bleu has once again proven themselves to have the most beautiful, tasteful craftsmanship and great quality as they have had with my previous review of their beautiful Glass Nail File with Swarovski Crystals.
I highly recommend taking a good look around the shopping site for Mont Bleu and I am sure you will fall in love with so very many of their products, just like I continue to do every time I visit.
