Today I will be Doing a Double Whammy! As usual haha,Today is going to be a post for all of those with Children on your Shopping list.First i will be reviewing frecklesgalore.etsy.com She makes Crayon rolls,Magnet sets,items for dolls & Clothing all with your child in mind.

Here is what i got to review:


Item arrived fast,in super cute wrapping to my surprise the crayon roll came with crayons already in it which i wasn't aware of but it was a lovely surprise.The crayon roll itself is very well put together & super cute she uses a large ribbon attached to it to keep it tied shut.Her Monkey & cupcake fabric made me say aww out loud perfect for your little girl or any other little girl on the list,But don't think crayon rolls are the only thing she offers her shop has much more for any little girls needs all at affordable prices. Highly recommended shop. If you mention this blog post you can get Two crayon rolls of the special price of $10 that saves you $5.

Second I will be reviewing spiritofgiving.etsy.com She makes personalized hooded towels,beach towels,changing pads & More

Here is what I got to review:


Item arrived faster than expected in perfect condition with a cute little ribbon tied around it holding it in place. Perfect size for present bag or wrapping paper,Item is professionally put together I can't see anywhere where a string or stitch is out of place.You can choose any color & she has more than one ribbon you can choose from & get any name.Towels can be worn until your kid is seven or eight which is perfect because even some store brand hooded towels are not that big.Her shop is perfect for buying your child or a new mother a cute gift.

Today I will be Doing a Double Whammy! First I will be reviewing Seville83.etsy.com she makes fabric tote bags,scarfs,chocolates & does Photography.Her tote bags all look so adorable.

Here is what I reviewed:



Item arrived super fast At first i was surprised it could fit in such a small box but it was folded wonderfully.Tote bag has an even brighter Teal color then the photo's show it looks & feels great considering it is a tote bag it is considerably soft. I am picky when it comes to tote bags due to a lot of them have straps that are so small the tote bag is jammed uncomfortably sitting under your arm but her tote bags have considerably long straps which lets the bag hang at your hip,I reviewed her Tiny Teal tote bag but she has many colors & larger bags.Inside of the bag is just black with a slim pocket great for pens & pencils I know that can come in handy I am always losing mine in my bags,this will be a great gift for an art student,a middle,high school,or college student.Recommended store for Totes.

Holiday Shopping Guide Part 3

If you are one of my followers you know that I will be writing a few reviews on Etsy shops,as a Christmas Shopping Guide Every few days - Every week I will be doing a Feature on a shop & Reviewing their item(s) for you to read & Enjoy Hopefully you will find something your looking for I myself have bought one or two items from the shops I have looked through from review.Our last issue was about our wonderful Craftedbydesign,At the very end of the reviews I will make a post linking to all the reviews for you to look through,these are some great Reliable shops with good quality items that are worth the money.

Today we are hitting you with a Double Whammy! If only computers had a device so that you could smell through the screen,if you were able to you would be in scent heaven This review is great for items to treat your self to an at home Mini spa,Many like myself are skeptical when it comes to buying candles & soaps online but with these two shops you have Nothing to worry about there scents are more amazing then i can explain.

Our first review today is on pepperapothecary she makes amazingly scented soaps in various sizes & gorgeous shapes for example her pirate soap that has finely detailed ribbons,cross bone & cracks in the skull.

Here is what I reviewed: Blue Pirate soap in the scent of Waxed Dragon & a Sea foam green Baby chick in the scent Plum Blossom.




A little Info on her products: Her package arrived in a matter of no time,she packages it amazingly with stuffing so that your soaps are safe & secure.Right away I could smell the soaps the package smelled amazing,& the colors were magnificent.Now onto the good stuff,speaking from someone who prefers liquid soap over bar soap her soap is amazing & I would recommend it to everyone they leave your hands feeling refreshed,rejuvenated & soft plus they smell great too.Her soaps are good for party gifts,wedding gifts,guest bathrooms,& More she does do custom & Bulk orders. Free Skull Soap with any order when code: BaconBit is used

Our second feature is on nikkicandles.etsy.com she makes candles,bath & body items,incense & more,with over 240 scents to choose from.She takes great care in creating each item.

Here is what I got to review one of her great smelling candles,& body oil samples.



A little info on her products: Arrived in two days great shipping speed,package was adorable tied in a little box with a note attached.Candle came with a set of matches which I find as a major plus for those of you who want to order candles as a gift.Candle had a strong scent that was not over powering it has made my living room smell great I would invite you to come over & enjoy the scent yourself if i could but I would recommend this store to all candle lovers including myself. Body oil smelled great as well both are very beautifully put together. Don't think she shop is just candles & oils though she has much more to offer.

Lesson be learned

A valuable lesson for buyers out there if you are interested in buying from a shop be sure to check their feed back if they have neg or neutral feed back from more than one person who has Bought from them I wouldn't suggest buying, I made that mistake two weeks ago almost a little bit more the seller had 2 Negative & 10 neutral feed backs I thought maybe since they had more positive everything would be fine so I went ahead & bought anyways now the seller has claimed that they sent it out,I messaged them a few days ago about this issue with no reply & I know they were on since they left feed back for others in that time frame,still haven't received the stockings i ordered for my daughter today so i disputed the item as a no arrival after many members in the Issues & promotions forum agreed 2+ weeks was long enough to wait,that finally made her reply though she was very rude & left a very nasty feed back,Some members like to wait to see their buyers feed back but it seems very tacky to wait to see weather they are happy or not & then leave rude feedback to them because they were unhappy with your store,looking through the comments she left for others this is not the first time she has done this. Lesson learned for me Be Careful when buying from certain sellers, I know for a fact I will never buy from her again nor will any of my friends or family.

Now I am out one gift for my daughter have any cute childrens items? Post them here I am looking to buy.
