Tips on Where to Find Handmade Jewellery - No More Boring Jewellery - Polymer Clay Jewellery

Hi There..... Are you a fan of handmade jewellery? Have you ever worn polymer clay jewellery?

I have made polymer clay jewellery too, and I can make the most magnificent pieces with clay. Haha got you fooled there now, didn't I? 😁

The devil in me is always present, lurking in the dark. Ah yes, talking about the dark. Yesterday the power went out. I was watching The Voice, one of my favorite shows. How could they do this to me? 😭

It was about 10 in the evening, so it was pretty dark already. My cell phone is always right next to me, so I put on the flashlight app. We went to the front door, and it seemed the entire block was in the dark, not just us. 😨

There were people all over the street talking to each other about what could have happened. I ran out into the street to hurry to pick in on their conversation. Nah, of course not. That’s not me. 😂

I don't know what happened, but so glad all the lights came back on at about half-past 11. It took the internet providers about an hour longer to get everything back into the rails, so we watched a DVD of Mission Impossible. Sorry to say, Tom Cruise is not my favorite actor at all. 😬

Are you kidding, he is one of the all-time greatest actors if you ask me? It was almost 1 in the morning as we were only halfway, so I went to bed. To sleep, of course. 😏

All this has entirely nothing to do with my blog post today. Except that it’s also about something I really love. Jewellery, but not just any. It’s about handmade jewellery from No More Boring Jewellery. 😍


About the artist and her relationship to Art?

Sofia, the 25-year-old maker behind this shop, was raised in Crete, a Greek island. Living with her grandparents, she learned a lot from her grandmother's creativity. She was always busy with things like knitting, painting and jewellery making. That's where Sofia got her inspiration from.

Her eye for detail is something she inherited from her father. As a young girl she absolutely loved to do realistic portrait drawing, and friends and family would give her lots of commission to draw their picture. 

Once she started university and later on work, she didn't have the energy to do anything remotely creative. This all changed because of a call from her grandmother who said 'You should always be drawing'. She kept repeating this several times during the call, and it kinda stuck to her.

Sofia kept contemplating, and it took her a couple of weeks to give in again to her creativity.

Why jewellery?

Being stressed with time, she wondered if there wasn't a better way to express her creativity. A portrait drawing on general took her about 7 hours to finish. She felt there surely had to be a way to save time and also reach more women. 

Simple maths brought her to jewellery making. Polymer clay jewellery is something people can wear every day. Her goal is to offer small art pieces, not just a simple piece of jewellery. 

That's how the name No More Boring Jewelry came to be. She designs every piece after hours of prototyping so that it gives a unique vibe and allows the customers to express their creativity.

Plans for the future?

Her goal is to keep creating unique and limited pieces. This is how a new idea came to life. She plans to launch monthly themed boxes with a few handmade jewellery pieces. Every month there will be a completely new offering on her website. 

The boxes will contain leaflets explaining the inspiration for the pieces, the original hand drawn design and some facts about the particular theme. There will be custom made boxes based on the theme. The different sizes of boxes will range from £15 - £70 pounds.

What did I think?

Her designs are so intricate and detailed. I used to make polymer clay beads a very long time ago. She makes it all look so easy, but it's definitely not. 



Sofia chose these for me, and I wasn't expecting them to look that good on me, but they do. At least I think so. In the past I have always shied away from larger earrings, thinking they would not be for me. That proves I too can be wrong. 



This is also one that Sofia chose for me. They may look heavy, but her pieces are so very delicate and thin, which makes them a lot lighter than you would expect. I would advise you to store them separately, though, because of their delicate nature. 



This was my favorite pair of earrings from her shop. I immediately fell in love with the raindrop shape of these lovely polymer clay earrings. Her pieces are not the most obvious color combinations, but they all work perfectly together.



I am so glad she also added this one to my package because it is stunning. I love the little extra heart on the side, which makes it so special and out of the ordinary. 

You should check out her Instagram profile

Helpful tips for taking selfies - The Gigi Cosmetics - Selfie Ring Light

Hi There..... Is taking selfies something you like to do? Do you have a selfie ring light, or are you in the dark about what equipment you could use to enhance your selfies?

If you are an influencer, taking selfies is something you probably do more often. Let's hope you are not addicted to it. And yes, there is such a thing as being addicted to selfies. 😎

I read on nbcnews that the Nottingham Trent University study established the Selfitis Behavior Scale as an instrument for assessing Selfie addiction. Borderline: Taking at least 3 selfies a day without posting them on social media. Acute: Taking and posting (on social media) at least 3 selfies a day. Chronic: Unable to resist the urge to take selfies “around the clock” and post at least 6 of those photos per day. 😲

Go on, tell me, how many do you post? Perhaps you are exactly like I said, somewhat in the dark about what equipment to use. I wonder if that's a good or a bad thing? What if I tell you more about this ring light? Will you hold me responsible for your selfie addiction, afterward? 😁

I found a great quote by Svetlana Alexievich to help me solve this puzzle. Showing just the dark side doesn't always work. The important thing is to show what we can learn from dark things, what good we find there. 😊

As a kid, I was so afraid of the dark. Both my sisters knew that too well, and they made good use of it when playing hide and seek in the house. They often hid in the basement, because they knew I wouldn't come searching for them down there. 😢

Aha, for them, it was a good thing. Not that great for me, though. Although, from time to time I gathered all my courage and still went in that basement. This way I gradually overcame my fear. Ok, not completely, but still. 😄

That means there must be truth in this quote, and I can go on with my blog post about this Selfie Ring Light, I received from The Gigi Cosmetics in return for my honest opinion. 😍


The package contained the ring light with a power cord with a switch that ends in a USB plug, and it also contained a rotation head. The light diameter is 16 cm (6 inches). It has 3 adjustable color temperatures and 10 brightness options for each temperature mode.

How to use the light

The ring light is powered by USB, which is perfectly compatible with various devices like a PC, laptop, and power bank, allowing you to have a comfortable experience during use. 

The buttons on the power cord are used to easily turn the power on and off and switch to the lighting mode and brightness level you need.

What to use it for 

It will come in handy whenever you need extra light with multi-functions. It is light and compact, so you can take it anywhere you want. Connect it to a tripod to free your hands for study, live stream, makeup, taking photos, making videos, selfies.

What did I think about it?

I tried it out in one of the darkest rooms in our house. If you plug it in, the on/off switch lights up blue, which I found super handy. The different colors and brightness levels make it easy to get the right mood you want for your picture or film. To show you, I made a series of pictures. 

Levels of brightness

The first one was without the light, and then gradually turning it to a brighter level.


Do you know how hard it is to hold your head in the same position and pull the same face each time. 😏

I wanted to show you the difference in how the light reflects on different angles of your face. There is already a considerable difference, with or without the light. I also placed my number one next to the 10 again, so that you can see that there is a significant difference between the first and the last picture.

Color Temperature

There are the 3 color temperatures you can play with. I am only showing them on the brightest levels, but for each color, you can also adjust the brightness 10 times. 


The left picture is the white light. In the middle, I switched to a warmer hue. Then the picture on the right is a cooler hue. If you can count, you know that there are 30 different levels on this ring light, so enough to play with. 😀

It may not have a light stand or a tripod, but why would you buy those if you already have them, and that makes this light very affordable. 😍

The next thing I need now is a Bluetooth selfie clicker so that I can take splendid pictures without having to bother someone else.  😄

Where to find Sexy Women Clothing - Livebetter - Women's Lingerie

Hi There ..... Do you like sexy women clothing? Does Women's Lingerie have to be feminine and chic for you, with possibly some lace?

Yes, right? Which woman doesn't want to look sexy or maybe a little provocative? That is certainly allowed and our partners love women's lingerie, or at least most of them. 😉

I remember the days before my wedding. It feels like ages ago because we will have been married for 35 years in a few weeks from now. My mom said that we still needed to go to the store, but I didn't know what store she had in mind. 😦

We were pretty close, so an opportunity to go shopping together was always fun. She took me to a lingerie shop. Oh, I thought, ok I suppose a lovely bra wouldn't look bad on my wedding night. But she didn't just let me buy a bra, but also a garter just for some extra decoration. Well yes for me, the decoration was not for the Christmas Tree. 😁

You can't blame a girl for wanting to look good on her wedding day, Can you? When the big day came, we had lots to do. First a small reception at our home. From there on we stepped into the white Rolls Royce limousine they had rented for us. I remember all the people we passed in the streets staring at us. 😄 

A bit later we arrived at the church for the actual wedding ceremony. I know, I told you I am not that much of a catholic, but my mother-in-law was very religious. It was her dream, so why wouldn't we let it come true. It was very romantic, so no regrets. 😊

After the church, we went to our mother-in-law's home for a reception. There were so many friends of ours that were invited that the reception was over before we knew it. 😯

Off we were again in our Rolls Royce Limousine to Iepenburg, a large domain with a playground and a park. We had planned to take some pictures over there in the park. Pity, it started raining halfway, but we managed to get a few stunning pictures. 😍

Then there was the wedding dinner and the party where we danced until 2 in the morning. We had such a wonderful time, and almost the entire evening had been filmed. That reminds me, we still need to have it transferred from a video to a blue ray or cd. 😊

Guess what happened with the sexy lingerie. Sorry to disappoint you, but we were so tired we didn't think about anything anymore, except sleep. The lingerie did its job, but just not on our Wedding night. 😴

How about you? Are you interested in sensual lingerie? Ah, then I have just the thing for you. Livebetter has some super sexy kimonos. 


But where do you actually wear such a kimono? Obviously, it is not intended to be worn like the traditional Japanese at weddings or a traditional tea ceremony. That would make some heads turn, haha. 😂

You could wear it when you just get out of bed and you go out to eat a biscuit on the terrace. Maybe you like to use it just before going to bed in combination with a pair of nice heels or boots, and I don't mean just going to sleep. But to accentuate your super feminine curves and get your partner in the right mood. 😜


If you want, you can wear it over your nightgown or your body. Then you don't expose yourself completely right away. Let your partner have a little patience, it won't hurt at all. This way you build up the tension some more. For all I know, you may have something completely different in mind. Without a doubt, these kimonos provide the necessary inspiration. 😉

You could also opt for the more romantic or playful character of a Babydoll.


What is that again a Babydoll? It is usually a slightly shorter nightgown that you can wear as nightwear. The difference with other lingerie is the shaped cups that usually fall out into a short skirt or a thong or shorts. 

Did you know the babydoll emerged in the 1940s, from a shortage of textiles because of the war? Textile enough now, but sometimes that can be exactly what we want. Make it a little more challenging. 😘

At Livebetter you can find many different types, something for everyone. Short, long, with or without pants or thong, or even with adjustable suspender straps.


If you are not shy, go all out and opt for a more sheer Babydoll. This way you can bring out your super feminine curves irresistibly. Your partner will undoubtedly not regret it. 😊

No problem if you are more reserved. Livebetter also has the perfect Babydoll for you. Maybe you want something playful with a bow or a satin ribbon. 😉

Whatever you choose, you will radiate passion and love in this beautiful lingerie. 😍
