Jewellery Storage Ideas

1) Jewellery Dress- This is my favorite and possibly the most effective. A jewellery dress is a jewellery holder in the shape of the dress. Models vary but Sass Diva has a great one with compartments on one side and hanging space for necklaces on the other. I have a jewellery dress and its used to store most of my jewellery. An added bonus is that its easier to see all your available jewellery at a glance.

2) Cup Holder- A cup holder is great for holding bracelets. And its large size enables it to hold more bracelets than a normal bracelet holder.

3) Storage Containers- Strapped for cash but desperate for storage? Plastic containers can be used to stored jewellery. A good idea is to keep a container for each item- necklaces, rings, etc.

4) Jewellery Boxes- Often items such as watches come in boxes that can fit more then the item itself. Square watch boxes can be used to store a collection of rings.

5) Jewellery Wardrobe- I’ve never actually seen a wardrobe that could accommodate my great jewellery stash but jewellery wardrobes are cute, small wooden wardrobes that are used to store jewellery. It looks good and does it job so its a definite must for me.

Tips for Dealing With Split Ends

1) TRESemmé Split Hair Shampoo- TRESemmé Split Remedy range is designed specifically to fix hair damage as it occurs. The range consists of a shampoo, conditioner, a leave-in conditioning spray, a leave-in split end conditioning treatment and a split end sealing serum
I only use the shampoo and if I’m being honest, due to my busy schedule, its the only product that helps me now. Essentially if you stick to just using this, you should be fine.

2) Clicks Hair Rescue Overnight Therapy-
This is a simple treatment that you leave in overnight and wash out the next day.

3) Clicks Hair Rescue Intense Nourishment
This treatment works in 5 minutes. You simply apply it after washing your hair and then rinse it out afterwards.

And that’s it. Three basic, very simple changes to your regular hair routine that’s guaranteed to make a huge difference in the appearance of your hair.

Book Review: With Malice by Eileen Cook

With MaliceWith Malice by Eileen Cook
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love Eileen Cook’s books. They’re well-written and comforting. I like to think of them as the hot chocolate of the book world. You can generally be sure of a great feel-good story in an Eileen Cook novel. Note that I said “generally”. This book is not one of those occasions. Yes it was well-written and impossible to put down like other books of hers that I’ve read. But if Cook’s other works are hot chocolate this one is a dark coffee. It’s strong and will keep you up all night.Jill wakes up in the hospital with no memory of the past six weeks. She has no memory of her trip to Italy, no memory of her best friend’s death and especially no memory of killing her. Simone and Jill had been friends since fourth grade. Jill may not have her memory but she knows she would never kill her best friend.However the media, her school, her friends, family and the Italian police all seem to think differently.As more evidence comes to light, even Jill starts to doubt her innocence. This book was impossible to put down. I suspected the ending but it was still a shock. Fans of mystery and Eileen Cook will love this book. It’s so different from the other books of hers I’ve read but it’s also so damned great!Get yourself a copy ASAP!

Fab Book Finds for February

Some of the world’s greatest books are releasing this Feb. Here’s what’s on my reading list:

1) Stars Above by Marissa Meyer
Release Date: February 2

The enchantment continues…. The universe of the Lunar Chronicles holds stories—and secrets—that are wondrous, vicious, and romantic.
2) Remembrance by Meg Cabot
Release Date: February 2

In REMEMBRANCE, the seventh installment of the Mediator series, all Susannah Simon wants is to make a good impression at her first job since graduating from college (and becoming engaged to Dr. Jesse de Silva).

But when she stumbles across an ancient murder, old ghosts—and ex-boyfriends—aren’t all that come back to haunt her.

REMEMBRANCE will be the first ever adult installment of the Mediator, published by William Morrow, the adult division of HarperCollins, the company that brought you the YA books in the series.

3) Raging Sea by Michael Buckley
Release Date: February 2

In the first book of Michael Buckley’s Undertow trilogy, the Alpha arrived and the world was never the same. At the start of the second book, most of south Brooklyn is in ruins and the nation is terrified. Nearly everyone that Lyric Walker loves is either missing or presumed dead, including the mesmerizing prince Fathom. It’s up to Lyric to unite the Alpha before the second wave of a cataclysmic invasion wipes out mankind for good. The Undertow trilogy is an unforgettable reading experience that author E. Lockhart calls,“Allegorical and romantic, the book nevertheless reads like an action movie with especially awesome CGI.”

4) The Unforgettable Hero by Valerie Bowman
Release Date: February 2

To escape a forced marriage to her loathsome, social-climbing cousin, Cecelia Harcourt banks on selling a romantic novel. But when she’s hit by a coach on the way home from meeting a potential publisher and loses her memory, the accident leads to an encounter with a fascinating man. . . who she’s convinced is the hero of her novel.

Due to his brother’s influence, Lieutenant Adam Hunt finds himself honorably discharged from the army. Adam intends to make his way in the world without the help of a war-hero duke, brother or no. He finds his plans for independence sidetracked by a chance encounter with a lady whose memory has gone. She believes he’s a hero. Can Adam become the man he was meant to be and fill that lofty role?
