The fascination with things which sparkle

CustomEngagementRing_HT2530ASssshh don’t tell my husband I’m looking at bling on WhiteFlash.com. They were, after all, named “Lord of the Online Rings” haha. It’s not my fault that I’m a girl and diamonds are a girl’s best friend, right? I mean aren’t we all a little bit distracted by shiny things. We will have been married 6 years this November and I still look at my engagement ring every sing day, I kid you not, I look at it shiny and wave my hand around to catch the sunlight when I’m waiting in the car at a red light. I really don’t think it will ever get old.

My husband’s cousin just got married this weekend and so I know his new bride will be having the same attention span issue while she’s admiring her new weddings rings. Her band has diamonds all the way around it, extra sparkle!

My engagement ring is perfect. There is no other ring I would ever want and I’m serious about that, it’s the perfect size, quality and it’s so unique. I love when engagement rings can be made to fit the personality of the lady who will end up wearing them forever. Whiteflash.com is one of the companies who can deliver top-knotch quality diamonds, click here to view Tacori engagement rings. The Tacori rings are stunning, you really have to see them in person to appreciate them, but the photos online are also beautiful. The talented Emmy Rossum, star of Beautiful Creatures, has been seen sporting Tacori jewelry. Dexter actress, Julie Benz rocked two Tacori diamond rings at the 2013 Screen Actors Guild Entertainment Weekly Party, sweet!

So when, where, and how do you find these rings? The place where you would get the most help and the best team to work with would be at WhiteFlash. They are open to the public for showroom viewings in Sugarland, Texas, but they also have an exquisite online showroom which includes the Tacori, but also the elegant, intricate Verragio rings which are simply gorgeous!

See I’m not the type of girl who would want to design my own ring, but I did go with my husband to look at rings. There are so many things to think about and so many options to choose from that you really can’t even grasp. I remember having to sit down with someone while they talked about clarity and metal types. I think if I had to design a ring right now it would be a bead set ring, they have such intricate details in how the stones are laid out, but they are also a simple band without anything rising above the ring or on the edges of the ring so it wouldn’t outshine my beautiful engagement ring. My goal would be for it to ultimately end up being an extra band that I would wear below my wedding band I suppose, so more like an anniversary band.

Most people wear anniversary bands on their right hand. Believe it or not, even though I am clearly appreciating my wedding rings, I am not much of a jewelry person. If I did get an anniversary band I’m not sure I would wear it on my right hand. I think, like I said previously, I’d stack it, so it would need to be inline. Someday. Maybe I’ll hint about it for our 25th anniversary, by then we might actually have some money saved ;)

Flips Audio, a social experience for your solo headphones

flipsWhen the Flips Audio Headphones came to our door I was super excited because they are these big bulky high tech looking headphones and I just wanted to be able to wear them. Of course both my boys and my husband wanted to try them out, too.  The packaging design was superb and enticing, the headphones look sleek and trendy.
Now my husband loves music, it is a passion for him just like it is for me but for different reasons. He likes to play music, he is a gifted musician and has a tone of recording equipment including his own set of pricey headphones that he uses when he’s working on tracks on his computer. He tried the Flips out and was really disappointed by the quality of the sound coming through the speakers when they are used for a solo experience. He said the music sounded muddy and couldn’t handle extreme lows or highs in a track without distorting the music. However, when he flipped the ears around and the music played out to the room he was really impressed by the sound. He said he wouldn’t purchase the headphones for use unless he were planning on using them socially.
I know a lot of teenagers wear headphones around their neck almost as if they are a fashion accessory. Flips Audio headphones would be perfect for those people. You don’t need to hold a loose blue tooth speaker, you just put these headphones around your neck and flip the speakers for a social listening experience. The only thing I should preface is the social listening mode does require that the headphones are charged. They can be charged via USB.
So if you’re the type of person that likes to be at the top of the trendy list and you love sharing music, definitely check out the special code below to get $10 of the $120 retail price.

Drum cases and dramaville

drummerbrianOnce upon a time in a land far, far away …

Okay so about 10 years ago at a dive/bar in Wilmington I met my husband.

I remember where I was standing, near a door, I don’t think I ever sat down. I didn’t know anyone and had been invited by the singer of the band playing that night. But it has always been my thing to lay back and scan and observe the people around me. I take it all in and learn about people based on their behavior when they think no one is watching.

Brian was this pale, scrawny guy sitting behind the drum cases. A drummer. I didn’t know at that time that he would end up being my husband and the father of my kiddos. Briefly, I should tell you, drum cases are so awkward. It’s not like a guitar case with a convenient handle. Drum cases are sturdy and SQUARE. You can’t just left them with one hand and you can’t hug them to carry them around. They are big, bulky, square cases. However, they are important to keep your drums safe and to allow shy women an opportunity to make your acquaintance ;)

After the set the band began packing up their equipment. I was introduced to everyone, but it was Brian I walked back up to later in the evening. I offered to help him put his drums away. Best move I ever made. (Even though I soon found out he was dating someone else).

Later I ended up dating the singer. He however was secretly dating Brian’s girlfriend. Needless to say sh!t hit the fan and I ended up smack in the middle of dramaville. But after all the chaos and bickering, after all that we ended up together, Brian and I. He was and will always be my Bri. I will always be his Ace.

We have had such a roller coaster of ups and downs.

The truth remains the same however…that in a sea of people, unfamiliar and familiar faces..I will always search for him.

Bass that Boomz in the palm of your hand; BB Bass

The bass really does boom. The kids were very excited about receiving a BB bass boomz speaker! At first glance I wondered how it would sound, It’s very tiny, but it has some weight to it when you pick it up.

Now the iPod Touch does not have very good speakers. If you turn it up you’ll hear that static scratchy sound. But this speaker takes the music to a whole new level. You have the option to plug it in directly to you MP3 player or into your computer. But Brae’s iPod has blue tooth capability and so we turned that on in the phone settings and within a minute it had found and activated the speaker as a new device.

All you have to do once blue tooth is activated is to put on your playlist.

Braeden normally listens with headphones because he’s drowning out all the other noise in his life, like his 6-month old sister and four-year-old brother… and me. bbbassbudsBut he really was impressed with this speaker, you can see it on his face in the video I took when we first tried it out he had that adoring smile that all music lovers get when their music plays crystal clear and loud. (above this post)

We also received BB bassbuds Classics in ear headphones. They are by far the best noise cancelling earbuds I have ever used. I seriously can hardly hear any outside distraction and the sound quality is pristine. I’m typing while I have them in, there isn’t any music playing at the moment and my loud typing is hardly noticeable. When I put music on I cannot hear anything else. Plus they have SWAROVSKI crystals on the outside so that’s what people see when they are in your ears. Sparkle!

What you might not expect however is the microphone which will hang down near your mouth while you are wearing the ear buds. And there is a control button a bit further down which you can push to answer and end calls. earbudsmicrophoneIf you push the button twice you it will take you to the next track on your device or if you push the button three times it will take you to a previous track. Those extra elements make them the perfect earbuds for running and you wouldn’t have to stop and mess with the actual smartphone or mp3 player because the buttons on the earbuds are easily accessible. I absolutely love those features!

Advanced Crystaltronics Sound Technology that fits in your ears and allows you to drown out the rest of the world. It really doesn’t get much better than that.

Gift ideas for the musical peoples

This post brought to you by Making Music Magazine. All opinions are 100% mine.

Remember in the movie Christmas Vacation when Clark gets a jelly of the month subscription from his boss and his brother-in-law tells him it is the gift that keeps on giving all year long? How awful, I mean who likes jelly that much? But you know what would be a perfect monthly gift? A gift subscription offer  to Making Music magazine. Making Music magazine; can give you the gift of music all year long. Perfect!

My husband and our oldest son are music minded and very talented each in their own right. They would both love this magazine, because it’s not just about rock stars and tours like other publications out there. This is actually about how YOU can make music. You’d be planting creative seeds of hope if you shared this magazine with them.

Or you can check out their other gift ideas for musicians. And while you’re checking out their website, be sure to look at the animated piano lesson because it’s just a taste of the interactive features their magazine website offers. You never know, you might end up learning how to improvise on piano using the blues scale or setting up your own PA system. Endless musical possibilities.

Unemployment doesn’t mean dead end, it can mean a fresh start

Maybe it’s because I’m tired of reading/hearing people saying there are no jobs out there, but I feel the need to share this information. There are jobs out there. You may be on unemployment, you may be interviewing places and apply but not finding any takers? So perhaps this is the Universe telling you to try a different path.

American Writers and Artists, Inc. offers a copywriting course which might be helpful for you. Sometimes taking a course to add a new finely tuned skill to your resume can make a world of a difference. My husband was recently scanning through jobs just to see what else is out there and what types of skills are required. He found a copy writing job specific to pharmacy, but there are many avenues in which being a fabulous copywriter can benefit and even help you to obtain a job. It’s definitely a course worth looking into and this is normally the type of job you can do commuting or working from home.

So if you are witty and clever, if you think it would be interesting to write copy for marketing companies or businesses then check out the link above.

So instead of thinking about how so many people are without jobs or how there isn’t anything out there for you, perhaps instead open some new windows or doors for yourself. Sign up for certificate programs, branch out and learn something new. It can truly make all the difference.
