Spring into Modern Accessories

This post was created in partnership with eAccountable. All opinions are my own.

Spring is the perfect time to add some new jewelry pieces to your collection. And these aren’t just any pieces. They are cool, modern, unique pieces that will have your feeling like a million bucks – without spending a fortune.
VisibleInterest.com is a wonderland for modern jewelry and like the jewelry itself boasts a clean, sleek appearance. It’s uncluttered and looks like a good friend (one that happens to have super great, stylish taste).
The careful curation of jewelry with a modern aesthetic is comprised of amazing necklaces, bracelets, rings and more crafted by independent jewelry designers in a range of price points.
Being able to shop by jewelry type, look, price, designer, etc. makes it simple to find just the right selection for your individual style
The modern look of all the pieces make a bold statement while seeming to say less is more. The pieces may speak for themselves, but naturally you’re going to get all compliments.
The jewelry shown below is all beautiful, but I keep going back to the Nico Ring with the chant, “Want. Want. Want” in my head. I’ve also been on the hunt for a standout cuff bracelet (which is a very hot trend) and just may have found it. Here are my top ten favorites for spring.
  1. Labradorite Cuff - This 7 inch open cuff is hand cast in Bronze with 6mm hand-picked Labradorite stones at each end.
  2. Nico Ring is Sterling Silver- This is a unique, minimalist double ring with a vertical bar that is made in White Gold plate over Sterling Silver.
  3. Tiny Pearl Earrings - A cool, modern twist on freshwater cultured pearls on dainty solid 14K Gold hoop earrings that are designed to hug the earlobe.
  4. Cracked Earth Ring in Brass - This stunning, tall, 2 inch ring is a free form open weave ring in Brass and extends beyond knuckle to knuckle.
  5. Golden Petite Starburst Pendant Necklace - A statement piece that features signature detail with 18k Gold Plate over solid Sterling Silver and a contrasting 18K White Gold ball artistically incorporated into the sunburst design. The chain is adjustable to 16-17-18 inches.
  6. Bold Cactus Cuff in Silver - This amazing wide (1 ½ inch) solid Sterling Silver open weave cuff bracelet is crafted from the honeycomb skeleton of a prickly pear cactus and features contoured, organic edges and a shiny finish.
  7. Gemstone Lariat- This casual, stylish Lariat Gold fill chain necklace measures 16 inches with a 1 1/2 inch drop and is available in Sapphire, Turquoise, Ruby and Carnelian
  8. Herkimer Diamond Earrings - The diamond earring studs are an affordable modern take on diamond stud earrings.
  9. Bound Ring in Gold - Each Bound Ring is one of a kind. The material is shaped by the artist's hand and can display slightly different shapes. The ring, which is 14K Yellow Gold wrapped with an 18K Yellow Gold setting and has a 2mm White Diamond, can be slightly altered by gently splaying the layers of Gold wire apart or pushing them closer together.
  10. Prayer Stick Choker - This 2 ½ inch indented Sterling Silver bar pendant dangles on a naturally dyed leather choker that is available with black or brown leather.

MB Intel Security Review

Disclosure: I received the products below and compensation in order to review in exchange for sharing my honest opinion.
 
 
How safe are you in your own home? If you are like me you probably feel safe and snug like a bug in a rug. That's how I felt until I took the MB Intel Home Assessment.  It was an enlightening experience for me. My life consists of raising my three babies Christian age 6, Gavin age 4 and Sierra age 4 Months and feeling safe and protected since my husband Chris Bailey is currently not working and home with me.  It really is such a false sense of security though and I had no idea what dangers my family would face.
 I love the secure feeling of having Chris home with me and he is very experienced in safety and self defense than most. He has taken many gun training seminars and self defense classes and he has his Concealed Weapons Permit. He fought in many cage fighting battles and was very successful in the sport but quit when we became serious and started a family. He is also 6 foot 5 inches tall, has red hair and a temper to match and weighs 350 pounds all muscle! Yes ladies he's built! Even with all that he has done to be able to make us safer it can't prevent a natural disaster.
 
 
 
It was 3:45 AM when it hit we were all in bed and that's when we saw the water was in the house. How on Earth do you get 3 kids safely out without freaking them out and scarring them for life. That was my first thought. First we assessed the situation, we could easily make our way to the car but it was very dangerous on either side the water could have risen at any time but it was a chance we had to take. I waited at the top of the hill where the water couldn't get with the car and Chris brought each child out to me. The last was our littlest Sierra it was such a frightening experience. Our house had never flooded before and we were not in the flood plane so it was something that no one could have expected or planned for. We were just glad to get ourselves and our kids out safely!  My house and my possessions were pretty much all gone. We had time to bring out a few outfits for the kids, baby books, and our personal papers box. What I never expected was it is not the water a flood leaves behind that does the ruining; it is the sand and mud and sludge that settles on everything that ruins stuff. Two things I learned safe is never safe enough and family is all that matters. Hold on to the ones you love! 
 
 
I was so excited to get my free risk analysis I tried the free first and let me tell you MB Intel points out so much you would never think of.  If you think the free version helps with safety issues try the paid version. For only $29.95 you get a much more detailed and in depth analysis for every threat you could possibly think of. You can start here at MB Intel and find out how safe you are now.
 
 



 
 
 
These are the results of my free trial you will have to buy the paid one to find out what great features it offers. I can tell you it is much more in depth and I found 9 different areas that needed fixed to be safer in my home. Out of those 9 fixes 6 took less that 5 minutes. I think 5 minutes to be safer is well worth it. That 5 minutes just might save your life. Red means you have many safety concerns, yellow means you are in the mid range for concern and green means you are at low risk. I only had one area in the yellow and I kind of expected it. My safety was our lowest area and our highest was our preparedness for an emergency. After the flood I have been trying hard to get very prepared in case of an emergency so I am never caught off guard again. It is a helpless feeling don't be left in a bad situation.

About Dora and Friends: Into the City!:
Set in the fictional city of Playa Verde, Dora and her friends go on adventures, whether it’s rescuing a lost stuffed monkey for a little boy in the hospital or returning a ring to an ancient Mayan Princess.  Throughout her journeys, Dora uses Map App on her smartphone and a magical charm bracelet to navigate the city and overcome any obstacle.

Dora and Friends DVD includes the following episodes:
·           We Save a Pirate Ship! Dora and her friends are at a Pirate Festival to benefit the restoration of the city’s ancient seaside fort, and Dora promised a little boy named Jorge that he could steer the festival’s pirate ship ride.  But when the pirate ship ride doesn’t show up, Dora, Kate and Pablo must build their own. They find an enchanted ship’s wheel that takes them to a talking pirate ship with secret treasures.

·           The Magic Ring - Dora and Naiya are helping out at story time with the younger kids at school when Pablo discovers a mysterious ring that shrinks him.  Dora and Naiya search through the library and find the secret of the ring, discovering that it's been stolen and lost by an evil wizard from long ago. The only way the spell can be broken is by putting the ring back on the owner's finger, an ancient princess.

·           The Royal Ball Dora and her friends are having a Royal Ball in honor of all the kids who helped clean up the city park.  Dora and Alana head to the costume shop to get dresses, and find a golden gift box with a beautiful dress that’s perfect for Alana.  The golden box comes to life and tells them that the dress is for the princess – it's his job to get it to her!  The box magically transports them to the royal grounds where they must escape a dragon and rescue the box from crocodiles.

·           Dance Party - Dora and her friends are putting on a dance party to raise money for the town’s new dance school. Alana convinces Pablo to teach her a simple step as a mirror ball magically transports them and Dora to the land of Baila, where they meet Celia.  She explains to them that her overprotective father, the mayor, has outlawed dancing after she stubbed her toe at her first dance.  Celia needs Dora and her friends’ help to convince the mayor that dancing is safe and fun.
