Show off your exercise tracker in Pure Elegance with Jewelry from fitjewels

When I start a project, whether it’s a diet, blog or exercise routine, I become obsessed with all the little details. I write everything down, do my research and try to stay as committed as possible. Blogging is easy to stay committed to, but diet and exercise is a different story until I got my new activity tracker. I love the tracker, I can track my sleep, steps and most importantly, my calories and food journal with ease. It’s amazing, whether it’s a Fitbit, Fitbit Flex, or a Xiaomi Mi chip, it really does keep you on track. Now let’s talk about the rubber wrist band that comes with it. The are great for everyday wear but let’s face it, when you want to wear something pretty, you don’t want to wear a black or bright colored rubber band around your wrist, it just isn’t elegant. If you need to wear your exercise tracker and want it to look fashionable and sophisticated, you do have options.

I recently discovered fitjewels fitjewels has the most amazing jewelry that will hold your tracker allowing it to look fashionable. fitjewels carries a line of bracelets, necklace sets, and pendants. The styles are gorgeous and come in different finishes like 18K Gold Plate, Silver, Rhodium, 18 K Rose Gold Plated and Sterling Silver. Several of the fitjewels bracelets are offered with a leather strap making them stylish as ever. fitjewels has so many styles available to fit any style tracker, Fitbit, Fitbit Flex, Xiaomi Mi Chip, Jawbone and Sony Smart Band.

fitjewels newest Bracelet, Fusion in 18K Gold, (shown above) is the latest in their exquisite line of tracker jewelry. This sleek and feminine bracelet is available in  6.5 inches (Small)  and up to 7.5 inches (Medium) and is also available in Rose Gold. It is a handmade item from 925 sterling silver containing real leather. The Fusion is perfect for people with allergies  and is 100% nickel free

UnknownThe style of the Fusion Black/Silver (shown above) is made from 925 sterling silver and real leather. For silver lovers everywhere,  this bracelet will look great on your wrist whether you are wearing a casual or dressy outfit. Both of these bracelets are gorgeous, and I can’t wait to snag one. You can wear the fitjewels with or without the tracker; they are so versatile.








I am sporting my Fitbit Flexer in a stylish fitjewels Rhodium plated XIA pendant (shown above). My daughter noticed how pretty the pendant was and thought there was a precious stone inside. She was quite surprised when I told her it was my Fitbit jewelry. The Fitbit easily goes in and out of the pendant with plenty of room and is secure once the clasp is locked. This particular pendant is designed for the Xiaomi Mi (sold separately) chip but I have a Fitbit Flexer inside and it fits beautifully. The jewelry is so beautiful and will look amazing on any outfit. People will be looking at your jewelry and not the rubber band that is on your wrist.

Any piece of jewelry from the fitjewels line will be the perfect gift especially if you know someone who can’t live without their fitness tracker on at all times. I am going to Pre-Order my Fusion Bracelet for my Fitbit Flex now! You will love your jewelry and if you don’t love it fitjewels offers FREE returns in the US – no questions asked.

Finish your holiday shopping with a piece of jewelry from fitjewels!

Stocking Stuffers in a rainbow of colors from Molton Brown



Stocking Stuffers are always the hardest part of holiday shopping, for me anyway. Filling a stocking with a bunch of small toys is easy when your children are young. What do you fill them with when they are in their twenties. Yes, they still want a stocking full of goodies so I am on the hunt for stocking stuffers that my daughters will love. It’s a tall order to fill and Molton Brown  filled it. Molton Brown’s 12-piece Body Wash Holiday Gift Set will definitely fill a stocking or two or three. If you love body washes, you will love this collection.

Molton Brown’s 12-piece Body Wash Holiday Gift Set is the perfect gift for one person too. They won’t have to share this set and can enjoy the whole collection by themselves.

With fragrances like, Orange & Bergamot, Japanese Orange, Bushukan, Gingerlily, Pink Pepperpod, Blossoming Honeysuckle & White Tea, Coco & Sandalwood, Eucalyptus, Samphire, Templetree, Ylang-Ylang, and Black peppercorn, your showers and baths will be a little more exotic.  The fragrances are delicate and appealing. They are the perfect stocking stuffer, gift topper and the perfect size for travel.  If you don’t buy holiday gifts, pick one up for yourself, you certainly  deserve a bit of luxury.

With this collecton, my daughters won’t have to fight over the body wash anymore, there is plenty for everyone!

REVLON will have your hair Stylin’ this Holiday Season


As soon as I received the new Revlon Pro Collection One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler, my 26-year-old daughter told me that it was exactly what she needed for her hair. Needless to say she is using it now, she loves it and I guess I have to get my own.


The Revlon Pro Collection One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler by Helen of Troy is a hair tool that is a blow dryer/paddle brush all in one unit. The best part about it is that now, you will have a hand free so you can quickly dry and style your hair with one hand. As you can see from my daughters results (shown above) what started out as wavy wet hair, has turned into sleek, straight and soon to be frizz-free hair. She also feels that she doesn’t need to use a flat-iron after blow drying and if she does, it is only for touch-ups. She says this styler is a huge time saver and its lightweight design makes styling comfortable.

The Revlon Pro Collection One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler was designed to reduce heat exposure and minimize heat damage to your hair and has some remarkable features; you will notice that the Paddle Brush design is made with flexible material to contour to the head and smooth out hair and the Massaging Ball Tips help detangle hair, while being gentle to your scalp.

The Revlon Pro Collection One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler also has IONIC TECHNOLOGY®. Ionic Technology is a process where negative ions neutralize positive ions in the air. This process seals the hair cuticle which reduces frizz leaving your hair shiny. What’s not to love about this amazing hair tool. My daughter is very fussy when it comes to hair appliances and she is really enjoying this one. You can purchase your own at large drugstores nationwide such as Walmart.

You only need an eyeliner for dramatic eyes



A message from Linda Eisner from Pencil Me In Cosmetics:

No time in the morning to wear makeup? If there is anything you can do to your face that doesn’t take too much time but makes a huge impact on your appearance is to play up your eyes.

Make sure you have a nice tip on your eyeliner but not overly sharp where when you press the point may fall apart or drag your eye lids. Pencil Me In Cosmetics eyeliner comes with a built-in sharpener.
Make sure the pencil tip is at the right temperature. Oftentimes eyeliner pencils can be too cold to first apply. You can cup the eyeliner point in the palm of your hands to get it warmer and soften or even use your blow dryer real quick and at an arms length distance to not destroy the eyeliner but to warm it. Cold eyeliner is hard to apply. When eyeliner is the perfect temperate it goes on perfectly smooth.
A cat eye shown here doesn’t take a long time to do but makes a huge impact. Pencil Me In Cosmetics has a white eyeliner color called Snow. You don’t have to use just black or white for this look. Try a mix of a dark and light shade. We offer 30 various eyeliner shades. Experiment with our Amethyst dark purple and Orchid Sparks, a lighter purple.
Experiment with color. I can’t stress enough that we should not be afraid of colorful eyeliners. The day you wear a different colored eyeliner, I bet you someone will notice and for all the right reasons.

All that shimmers is Pixie Blush from Jennifer Bradley


Jennifer Bradley has a shimmery highlighter in her line of cosmetics that is simply irresistible. If you love pink and shimmery, you will love Pink Champagne. This is a highlighter/blush that will brighten and add a touch of sparkle to your makeup. It’s very delicate and will only need a light touch to highlight your cheekbones and eyebrows.  I add a touch just over my blush for a brightening effect. I have also applied Pink Champagne under my eyebrow to highlight my eyes. You can use it anywhere you want a shimmery look. I love the effect and you will too.


Jennifer Bradley says: “This is the “magic” color that I use to transform cheeks and eyes. Professional makeup artist trick :)”

Pink Champagne will make the perfect stocking stuffer for any make-up addict. Visit their website now!

Seven Prints Every Fashion Lover Needs In the Home

If you’re a fashion lover, then you know all about mixing and matching fabrics and prints in your wardrobe. At Modernize, we think that when you’re decorating your home, you should let your love for the fashion world shine, too. Here are seven essential prints every fashion lover should include in his or her home (although maybe not all in the same place).


Nothing says fashion like a big, bold geometric print. Bonus points for black and white prints, because we all know that monochrome style isn’t going anywhere any time soon. Geometrics work best on throw blankets and accent cushions, as a bold bedding choice, or even on shower curtains.



For classic, Old World fashion charm, a herringbone pattern does wonders to transform a space. Choose from rugs, blankets, curtains; you name it, it works as herringbone. You can thank Benedict Cumberbatch and the tweed filled world of Sherlock Holmes for bringing this English style back onto our fashion radar.


Animal (faux, of course)

If ever there was a print that was a must have for fashionistas, animal would be it. Zebra, leopard, tiger, and even cow (yes, I said cow) prints are staples on the runway year after year. Be brave and add one or two animal print pieces to your home furnishings and fabric accessories. Just remember not to take it overboard!



Floral prints don’t have to be dowdy and old-fashioned. There are plenty of florals that are suitable for both vintage lovers and modern fashion mavens, so take your pick and decorate your bedroom and even your living room with a few extra flowers. If you want to be especially avant garde with your style, choose soft, Eastern inspired florals with pinks and blues; it’s a hot trend coming up next spring.



Fortunately for everyone, stripes are never going out of style. How you wear them changes from year to year, of course, and the same can be said for home decor. Wide stripes and chevrons have had their time in the sun, so we have a feeling that thinner stripes are coming back soon. Whichever you prefer, be bold and use stripes as accents throughout your home.



For those of us whose fashion icons include the likes of Gwen Stefani, houndstooth is already a firm favorite. Although technically a geometric print, this variety gets its own category because of its brazen uniqueness and versatility. Anyone can rock houndstooth if they’re brave enough, so don’t be afraid to reupholster that oversized armchair with a print most of your other friends probably don’t use in their own homes.



At first glance, plaid may seem like a bit of a boring print, but I promise it’s more than wool blankets and ski chalet design. From Scottish tartan to bright, multicolored crosshatches, the modern plaid can match any home’s style. Simply choose your color scheme and add a few pops of plaid to your pillows, throws, and even upholstery.
