Bodycology Fragrance Mist

I recently tried out 2 of Bodycology's Fragrance Mists. Here are the ones I was sent.
The first one is their Pure White Gardenia. Here is the scent description on their web site.

The rich, floral scent of fresh gardenias promotes love, peace and good spirits.

The other is their Enchanted Forest and it has shimmer in it. Here is their description on it.

The alluring, hypnotic blend of jasmine, nutmeg and musk will enchant your senses.

I love that these are light and I also like to give a little spritz in my hair to freshen it up. I especially like to spray the glitter one in my hair.

These are great for gifts and and I love their little gift packs that you can find. I have seen these in my local walmart as well and they have other great products. I will make sure to give these to someone on my Christmas list this holiday season.

Darcus Tori's Square Black Onyx Earrings

Like any woman I love jewelry. I have a lot of it and I a constantly looking for beautiful affordable pieces to add to my collection. I was excited to try out Darcus Tori's Square Black Onyx Earrings In Sterling Silver.
Size 6mm
Stones: Black Onyx
Setting: Genuine .925 Sterling Silver mountings, posts and backs
Packaging Earring pads labeled 'Sterling Silver'
The myth of the origin of onyx says that the goddess Venus was resting on the banks of the Indus River. As she slept, Cupid used the point of one of his enchanted arrows to give her a manicure. The parings of her nails then fell into the waters of the sacred river. Since the nails were of heavenly origin, they sank to the river bottom and were metamorphosed into onyx.

Onyx is a protective stone worn when facing adversaries in battles of conflicts of all kinds, or while hurrying down a dark street late at night. In classical ceremonial magic, the image of the head of the god Mars or a figure of the hero Hercules was engraved on onyx and carried for courage. Indians and Persians believed that wearing onyx protected them from the evil eye, and that placing onyx on the stomach of a pregnant woman in labor would reduce the labor pain and bring on earlier delivery.

Onyx is not only used for protection, but also as defense against negativity consciously directed towards you. It has also been used to reduce uncontrollable sexual impulses. The close union and yet strong contrast between the layers of black and white in some varieties of onyx may suggest its connection with romance. In India, Gemologists recommend Onyx as a protective measure for harmonious relationships, thus keeping away any probability of disturbances or differences between the couple. Onyx as a birthstone provides the structure and authority you crave. It can help you be the master of your destiny and strengthen your confidence. It provides support in difficult times and centers your energy in times of mental or physical stress. It also offers the gift of wise decisions.
They are really pretty and can match anything that you own. They are simple enough for everyday use and I have been loving them. They are a great price and I have a awesome coupon code for you. This is the perfect holiday gift for someone you love. Just use the code 0704 and it makes them completely free just pay shipping Expires Dec 1 2013. I ordered 2 more pairs for Christmas gifts.
