Created by artist Mary Fisher, the 100 Good Deeds bracelet that celebrates joy in service. Mary met Thomas Morgan who told her about the 100 Good Deeds Game he started with his family. The only rules are that a good dead is only counted when you have went out of your way to help someone and remained anonymous in doing so. Mary’s bracelets are handmade using braided thread and contain 100 glass beads and a single rubber ring. Every time you complete a good deed, move the rubber ring one bead closer to your goal. The bracelets would make a great family gift or for a recent graduate!

Fashion Fridays: Revitalize Your Nails with Gold Elements

gold elements nail kit 550 Fashion Fridays: Revitalize Your Nails with Gold Elements

gold elements nail 250 Fashion Fridays: Revitalize Your Nails with Gold Elements

We recently received a supreme nail kit from Gold Elements. The kit is a great gift for a girlfriend, Mom or for yourself!

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. pixel Fashion Fridays: Revitalize Your Nails with Gold Elements

The Kit Contains:

  • Hand and Nail Cream: A gentle, protective and soothing hand cream to protect your skin.
  • Cuticle Oil: Deeply soothe, moisturize and nourish the cuticles. Ideal when buffing your nails, your cuticles will be softer and your nails stronger looking.
  • Nail File: To smooth away rough nail edges and shape your nail faster and easier.
  • Buffing Block: A fantastic buffer which grants a beautiful gleam to your nails and assists in stimulating the blood circulation underneath your nails, which encourages healthy growth.

The hand and nail cream is a thick moisturizer that goes on the skin easily. It is not greasy and the skin feels soft even after washing your hands a few times during the day. The cream has a distinctive fragrance that gives you a spa feeling but might be overwhelming to someone who prefers fragrance free products. However, the fragrance does dissipate. I have sensitive skin and the fragrance in the cream did not irritate my skin at all.

The cuticle oil is the gold medal winner in this set. It is super light and you can really see a difference in your cuticles in only a couple of applications. The size of this bottle is also easy to throw in your purse or a travel bag.

The nail file and buffing block are also high quality and perform better than similar drugstore models. The kit can be purchased on their website and on other popular online sites.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
