There's No Rest for the Wicked!

At least I think that's what "they" say.  This is what I've been cleaning for two days now.  Yes, I'm still Spring Cleaning and I'm running out of time.  This sparkling beauty came our way via my hubby's folks.  Was a mess when we inherited it.  So much dirt and grim but my mom being the good sport she is, rolled up her sleeves and helped me go at it with a toothbrush.  The crystals went through a few rounds in the dishwasher and Wow!!



A gorgeous 1950's genuine crystal chandelier for our front room.  And no Charlie Pride, this is one chandelier the "new" has never worn off of for me!

Barielle Nail Product GIVEAWAY with Review ENDED

WINNER IS FRANCINE E

Some of the most effective products around are those that were discovered accidentally.  A few refreshing soft drinks come to mind but there's another line of products that were created for one thing and so effective, they were reformulated for us!

Meet Barielle, the company that started with a conditioning cream for the hooves of racehorses and now has a complete line of products to treat our nails, hands, skin and feet!  No harsh or potentially harmful chemicals.  Just safe, effective and natural alternatives.  Ingredients like keratin, proteins, vitamins and oil and plant extracts.

I was happy to try the Barielle Total Foot Care Cream after a long, cold winter.


I needed something to help get my feet sandal ready and fast.  I found the cream was easily absorbed and felt so luxurious after a long day.  I applied it in the morning and at bedtime and within a week, my feet were much softer and silky smooth without any dryness.  And I love its lovely, clean scent.  No peeling ingredients and no acids to irritate sensitive skin.  Just pure moisture!



In just two short weeks,  I've noticed a lot less splitting and peeling of my nails and I'm hopeful they will become healthier and stronger as I continue to use this product.  At first, I applied it three times a day to get the most benefit but after two weeks, I'm now down to twice a day and my nails continue to improve.

And now for the glamor, I used the Jubilant Pink Nail Shade on my toes and fingernails.


The perfect pink for the warmer weather and just so pretty and so feminine!  I love that I can use the Nail Strengthening Cream over this pretty polish!

Aloha Friday - Pawn Shop Edition


Aloha Fridays are brought to you by Kailani in beautiful Hawaii at An Island Life where Friday is the day to take it easy while anticipating the coming weekend. Today I'm going to link up, take it easy and ask a question.

I've loved Pawn Shops for years and have found some pretty neat things not to mention incredible bargains on genuine gemstone jewelry.  So of course, I love the new show, Pawn Stars featuring three generations of men running a pawn shop in Vegas. As a matter of fact, I really think a show like theirs is helping to take away the negative image pawn shops have had for years.

So here's my question:

Have you ever pawned or purchased anything at a pawn shop?  If so, share the details!
