Get Fashionable (and Trendy) This Spring at The Trendy Boutique


If you’re looking for the perfect Valentine’s gift or looking forward to wearing some new accessories this spring, please consider my sponsor, The Trendy Boutique. They have a super selection of jewelry, watches, handbags, flip flops, and more!


One thing I’d check out if I were you, is their selection of silicone watches. I received one of these in gray, which I reviewed here.  It’s a really good looking watch, and since the color goes with just about anything, I’m wearing it almost every day!

And I’d also recommend their children’s selections.  Since I don’t have a little girl, I never looked at this section of their website till now, but I was really impressed by the bags and hair accessories that I found.  


But my favorite thing that I found in the children’s section was their Interchangelable Magnetic Jewelry! Very fun and cute!


And if you’re still dealing with winter weather, you should take a look at their scarves and head wraps. (I love this Houndstooth Tubular!)


And if you’ve really got spring fever, they have a really great collection of flip flops. And you can even design your own pair to fit your unique style!

Sponsor Spotlight – Julian & Co

I’m happy once again to announce Julian & Co as a sponsor on my blog.  This is a wonderful shop with a very unique line of  heirloom quality jewelry for moms, dads, and children.

These lovely pieces can be personalized with your child’s name, birthdate and time, weight, and length.  And you can even add birthstone charms!

The owner of this company is a mom named Tania, and the company is named for her son Julian who was born 11 weeks early and weighed only 3lbs 4oz.  When Tania’s husband purchased a personalized baby bracelet for Julian, and it was too big for his tiny wrist, Tania set out to design her own sterling silver id bracelet for Julian.  This was the first of many pieces in the Julian & Co line!
The  Signature line of Julian & Co  is the baby hand and feet jewelry.  So overjoyed to have Julian home, Tania handcrafted sterling silver disc pendants adorned with Julian’s own hand and feet prints, as well as his name and birth date, for her and her husband to wear. As soon as her family and friends saw Tania’s lovely creations, orders came rolling in, and the business grew from there. 

Julian & Co. offers jewelry that you can have forever as a keepsake.  It is durable and heirloom quality, and most pieces have a high shine mirror finish and are thick enough to be personalized on both sides. 

You can purchase these to commemorate the birth of your own child or grandchild, and they also make lovely gifts for birthdays, showers, baptisms, graduations, and more!
