Surprise! Jewelry Review and Giveaway!

Guess what?  Our blog party starts in exactly a week!  I'm very excited - we have lots of great bloggers to host, well-known and quality authors to interview, and presents to give away.  It's going to be great!  Today, though, I have a few somethings special for my lovely readers and our new party guests who came for the early surprise.



4 All Humanity is a privately owned online store that offers internationally created, ethically sourced women's apparel and accessories.  They sell clutches, scarves, dresses, tops, and beautiful jewelry, all from artisans in Africa and India.  Next year's products are to include creations from Peru, as well.  They're sending me two beautiful gold pieces to review, but they're also sharing the love with you.  Through December 31, 4 All Humanity is offering free shipping for the entire store, and they've graciously given me a coupon code just for my lovely readers!  Type in maybeteen10 to get 10% off your entire order!

If you like their store or want to thank them for these great deals, you can visit them on Facebook, Twitter, or Pinterest.

Amarese is an Etsy shop containing lovely fairytale-based jewelry.  The shop owner creates Hunger Games, Harry Potter, and Alice in Wonderland based pieces as well as pieces inspired by general whimsy and wonder.




She has given me one beautiful Stardust necklace to review, and is offering one for the winning giveaway entry as well!  We're offering this now so the winner can be announced and notified when the party starts - that way they'll have the necklace in time for Christmas!







The necklace is absolutely gorgeous, and it looks just like its photo.  I've worn it several times and everyone loves it (especially little girls, because glitter!)  The jump ring or silver loop attaching the charm to the chain came a little loose after a few days of wearing, but my dad's small pliers tightened it quite easily.  I love the little star charm next to the bottle especially, because I didn't realize it was part of the necklace and I think it adds to the piece.

  2. Hi Violinist! No, Facebook isn't required. You should see Log in w/Facebook button, and underneath that, "or use your email button." Click the email button to enter your name and email, which is all the Rafflecopter app wants from Facebook anyway. No Facebook connection is necessary for the email button to work.

  3. I logged in with my e-mail and I'm not sure what to do next. It says that there is one entry total. Could that be my entry? XD

  4. Logging in doesn't count as an entry. See the "+1" or "+2" or whatever number buttons? Click on one to see what to do to earn that number of entries. You can enter with all of the buttons, or with just the ones you want. All the possible entries added together are the denominator in the fraction in the top right corner, and the numerator is how many times you've entered. The total entries is how many times everyone everywhere has entered.

  8. Hi ladies! Owl, tell me: does she prefer Barbie as a fairy or Tinker Bell? When I was younger I would definitely go for Barbie, but Tinker Bell seems to be much more popular these days.
