I know it’s early, but it may be time to stock up on some TOTALLY adorable stocking stuffers and inexpensive holiday gifts for the very important pet people on your list (your favorite vet tech, dog sitter, groomer, etc)! And treat yourself, too…that’s MY plan!

These super cute Women’s Silicone Paw Watches come in 9 cool color choices and are only $8.99 each ($29.99 reg). You’ll snag FREE Shipping with a purchase of $24.99 plus free returns in case you change your mind.

There is a limit of 3 per person plus 2 more as gifts. That limit is per Groupon account, so if you need more (say to use as party favors, holiday gifts, or you just want one in every color), you can ask friends and family to order some, too!

I’m in LOVE with that green one, but the white looks really cool too. Decisions, Decisions!

Hurry on over to Groupon Goods HERE and snag a Paw Watch or 3 for yourself.

If you buy them as stocking stuffers, just remember where you put them! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve snagged an early deal on a Christmas gift and then forgot about it when December rolled around!

I can’t believe another year has past since we last celebrated Daisy’s adoption anniversary or “Gotcha Day”! The actual date is still a few weeks away (July 21st) but I thought now was a great time to begin the celebrations! I decided to treat myself to a gift to commemorate four lovable years with our silly rescue pup, and bought myself an Alex and Ani Paw Print Charm Bracelet to mark the occasion.

Not only is it symbolic because of the paw print design, but it’s also got a special meaning because it’s part of the Alex and Ani Charity by Design collection, meaning that 20% of sales will go directly to supporting, healing, and finding caring homes for dogs and cats. Plus it’s SUPER cute, so what’s NOT to love about it?!?

We wouldn’t dream of leaving YOU out of the celebration, so we’re hosting a giveaway and treating one lucky winner to their choice of silver-tone or gold-tone Alex and Ani Paw Charm Bracelet!!!

Entering is super fast and easy. Just use the Rafflecopter widget below and complete as few or as many of the optional entry methods as you wish. The giveaway is open to US residents age 18+. Good luck to everybody, and thanks so much for being a part of our online family!

Handcrafted Artisan Jewelry from Sitara Collections ~ Review + Giveaway

Sitara handcrafted jewelry

Mother’s Day will be here before you know it so it’s time to start thinking about getting Mom something special! Sitara Collections recently invited me to review their work on my blog, and sent me a few lovely pieces from their handcrafted artisan jewelry collection. One lucky reader is also going to WIN something to keep for themselves or give as a gift!

Sitara Collections is an online boutique specializing in handcrafted, artisan jewelry, home decor, gifts and fashion items that you won’t find anywhere else. All the items they sell are handmade and the company supports fair labor practices to ensure that all their artisans are fairly paid for their beautiful work.

Although my photos don’t do either piece justice, they’ll still give you a great idea of what you can expect if you order something for yourself or to give as a gift. Each item arrives with a gold gift box and beautiful drawstring jewelry pouch. You or your recipient also receive a card explaining where the jewelry was handcrafted, and about it being fairly traded. Because the sale of Sitara Collections pieces helps support women artisans in locations such as India and Latin America, it’s a really nice idea for a Mother’s Day gift; give your mom something special and help other women support their families, too!

I love these earrings!

Aren’t these earrings gorgeous?!? When I saw them online, I just knew I had to have them! The color is more vibrant than my photos portray. These Pear-Shaped Gemstone Drop Earrings come in Smoky Quartz, Green Amethyst, Rose Quartz, Chalcedony, Garnet, Green Onyx and Black Onyx. The ones I’m wearing are the Chalcedony and I love them because they look as great with a ponytail, t-shirt and jeans as they do with a sundress and sandals.

I also love this beautiful Carnelian Om Bracelet. It looks gorgeous on its own but I have several other silver bracelets from Mexico, Thailand and India and love wearing them all stacked together. This one adds just the right pop of color! Sitara Collections has a really nice assortment of bracelets, so whether you like to mix your metals and gemstones or keep it simple, you’ll find some amazing arm candy to match your style.

In addition to the handcrafted jewelry, you’ll also find lovely home accents and textiles, handbags, hair accessories and wraps plus Ayurvedic health and beauty products and even stuff for kids and babies. Each time I’ve shopped the site, I’ve noticed that they offer a discount code for your first order, so be sure to keep an eye out in their Shop, or sign up for their newsletter. Right now, the offer is 15% OFF with Sitara Collections promo code SAVE15 at checkout. You can also visit them on Facebook for more photos and other offers.
