I don't care what you say, shopping for guys is challenging. You want to give a gift that is unique, meaningful, and something they will actually like and use. It's no easy feat. Alas! I have an idea for you!!
If you love things handcrafted from wood or are trying to find a gift for someone who does, check out this shop on Etsy: Kajzars Wood Work.
They are located in Slovenia and make some gorgeous wooden cufflinks, earrings, necklaces, pens etc.
The shop owner responds quickly and has good communication, keeping you updated as he custom makes your items and letting you know when they ship out.
I wouldn't call the prices cheap, but considering that they are hand made and shipping is INCLUDED, I think it can be worth it if this is your style. Estimated shipping time is 10-14 business days from Slovenia to most places, so keep that in mind and order well in advance. That being said, my order came a lot faster than that.
A great idea for a groomsman gift would be matching cufflinks to wear on the wedding day and beyond. Or their amazing wooden pens.

I've been curious to try ipsy for a long time, but never went for it. I've gotten rid of quite a bit of old makeup and thought it would be a good time to try it. Anything I dont like will be removed immediately!!! Something about a little package of goodies coming each month is so exciting, a little present. But I don't want it to ruin my budget or take over all of the space I have created by decuttering recently. So begins my quest to have fun with ipsy and be balanced!
1. Margaret Dabbs London Treatment-Enriched Nail Polish in Green Daylily (£14.00)
2. Beauty For Real I-LINE 24-7 Eyeliner ($14)
3. VASANTI COSMETICS POWER OILS LIP GLOSS in SUPER MOM ($22)
4. theBalm Cosmetics Balm Springs Blush ( sample size)
5. skyn ICELAND Glacial Face Wash with White Willow Bark (sample size)
Most & least excited about
There's actually nothing in this bag that I am disappointed about! (and I am surprised at that!)
Also, I think the bag itself is very cute! I am soooo pleased with this ipsy bag. It cost $10, and the value in it was fabulous in my opinion. These are all items I will be using! Well done, ipsy! ;)
I hope it's like this every month!!

This review is for 2 of the NinaQueen Beads
1."Love Connection" 925 Sterling Silver Clasp Safety Chain Bead Heart Shape Design Charm
2."Happy Daisy" 925 Sterling Silver Stopper Safety Chain Bead Multicolour Charm
I was quite impressed with these when they arrived! I have a pandora bracelet and put them on the bracelet. Now, these beads snap onto the bracelet which means they won't slide off the ends and neither will the beads you already have on. Most beads just slide on the pandora bracelets and then when you take them off or put it on, you have to juggle the beads not falling off and clasping the bracelet shut. So beads like this help eliminate that issue by blocking non-snapping beads from falling off.
Still, you could use these on their own because they have great style too! In the video I placed both bead sets on one bracelet and alternated them. This allowed the chain to cross over, creating a unique look. There are so many options.
The beads come in a black box with a cleaning cloth. (always great to have!) They are very sparkly and I love them a lot! The Flowered one has great, fun summer colors.
These beads are a great way to protect other beads from falling off the bracelet and are a great, stylish addition to the bracelet themselves. You will enjoy them!
Don't forget thatthey are 925 Sterling Silver! Keep that in mind as you consider purchasing them.
While I did receive them for free to test and review, opinions are all mine!
Pandora Charm Style has a ton of other really cute beads. I'll share some that I love below!

**Experience With Aokbean Products**
This is the first time I have purchased any item from the brand Aokbean.
It looks like they also have a lot of interesting crafting supplies
**Experience With JVOPIN Products**
This is my first experience with Barbeqa products. On Amazon you can buy these Barbeqa Telescoping Marshmallow Roasting Sticks as well as an e-book called "The S'mores Party: 50 Ways to Make S'more!". For Kindle subscribers it's free and otherwise it is $2.99.
** Why I was intrigued by this product **
Who doesn't love S'mores? I do! That's for sure! And sometimes I don't feel like the whole S'mores process and I am completely content with a straight up roasted giant marshmallow. I love the slight crisp from the charred outside leading into the ooey-gooey marshmallowy goodness inside. YUM! I have a fire pit, propane, because I would never use it if it was wood burning. Let's be real. I love the idea of that, but I just know me. I tried to roast marshmallows with random kitchen tools I already had, but they were so short, I was afraid of getting so close to the flame. Thus, the Barbeqa Roasting Sticks seemed to be a perfect solution!

**Who would love this **
Fire Roasted Hot Dog/ Sausage / Kielbasa Lovers
Probably YOU :)
The Barbeqa Telescoping Roasting Sticks have some great features including a comfortable wooden handle, a hanging leather loop, easy telescoping capabilities, and covers for each fork tip to prevent injuries when not in use :) I think that is a cool idea for the accident prone like myself as well as families with children etc.
I purchased this set of telescoping roasting sticks at a discount for review purposes.

**Experience With Antoni Barcelona Products**
I previously reviewed other Antoni Barcelona products including those shown to the right. You may remember a recent blog post reviewing the Antoni Barcelona Mouth Blown Glasses.
I have been really impressed with the quality of each item in the Antoni Barcelona line, and this Wine Decanter is certainly no exception to that. When i saw that this new product was available, I knew it had to be part of the "family".
** Why I like this line of products **
I'm just a regular girl, and while I like nice things as most people do, I largely feel out of place in very fancy restaurants. I am polite and pleasant, but I don't know true "proper etiquette" and I always feel that the people who work in fancy places can sense that immediately, the way dogs can sense fear, and it shows in the interactions on-site. Being able to elevate the home experience of a fine glass of wine, maybe even one I picked after visiting the vineyard, is valuable to me. I don't need to feel awkward in an upscale establishment and pay too much for a stingy pour of a nice wine when I can decant into this and pour into my favorite goblets (see above) and enjoy in the comfort of my home where I fit in. ;-)
** Product Packaging **
It can be scary thinking of glass items shipping from who knows where and being tossed around in a large truck. Especially is that the case with a glass item like this which feels more delicate and special even though it is high quality. Antoni Barcelona handles this well by excellent nesting of the products in tissue paper, custom styrofoam, and box within the shipping box. In fact, I kept these boxes in the event that I move in the future, I know my special glasses will be safe and secure within.
**Who would love this **
Wine lovers - dur..
Newly weds for engagement gifts, wedding shower gifts...
Someone who loves flowers... Just saying, it would make a very special vase as well!

This is a darling little necklace. I wore it over a turtleneck and really liked the way it looked. Since it is both gold and silver in color that means you can wear it with more things. The chain is not one of those see-through chains you sometimes get which get knotted easily or even break.
My two favorite things:
1. The pavé accent around the side of the outer heart. I love pavé style and both my engagement ring and wedding band feature it. So naturally I am drawn to that detail.
2. MDN imprint on the inner heart. I think that is a really sweet detail.
I thought the clasp opened easily even though it looked short and initially I thought it may be difficult to open and close. It was not.
This necklace also comes with a black felt bag to store it, gift it, or travel with it.
It would make a lovely gift!
I received this necklace for free to review.
