Pink Wallet from KoopjesAap

Hi There.....Are you a fan of soft pink 😃

I actually wasn't for a long time. I'm not sure what made me change my opinion, but I am now.

Most recently I received this pink wallet from Koopjesaap in exchange for my honest review.

Pretty.....don't you think so 😄 I instantly loved it. To my opinion, it is very stylish as they say. And the fabric is soft, which makes it nice to handle. It is ideal to put some money and some cards in it. Here is a picture I took from the inside of the wallet. 
You have the zipper bag for your small change and you can put your id card in the small window. It is not that big so you can easily put it in your handbag. 

You can get this wallet in 7 different colors.....Bleu, Brown, Grey, Green, Red, Purple and Pink off course 😊

KoopjesAap has a lot of great deals on their website. They even offer discounts sometimes up to 90%. They have a large range of products to offer. But let me show you some of them out of the Jewelry and Accessories section.

Handbag - Women's Purse - Shoulder Bag - Leather - Vintage



Men's Wallet - Cardholder - Card's Wallet - Cards and Money



Small Handbag - Women - With Decorations




Handbag Women - Bags - Stylish and Business



Hope you like my blog post.....Until next time.....Have a great weekend

Seadbeady's finds on Etsy - 4

Hi There.....How is the weather over there?

Are you getting ready for spring? Maybe you still need a great Spring Dress?

Actually, since I lost so much weight (41 kilos) I can't wait to buy myself a new dress. Haven't worn any dresses for ages it seems 😄

Did you know that dresses in many cultures were worn by men more often than women 😀

Like for instance, the Scottish kilt and the Greek toga were part of menswear. Later on, when women started to wear more appropriated dresses, men stopped wearing them.

In Belgium, we even have a special term for that first warm day in spring when a lot of women wear a skirt for the first time in the year with bare legs. We call it 'Rokjesdag', you could translate that as 'Skirtsday'.

Since I am such a big fan of Etsy, I thought I'd show you some dresses you can find there 😃

Introducing you to - SeaAndSoulCharts

Hi There.....Are you a fan of Nautical Charts?

I beg your pardon.....you might be thinking 😦

Let me explain what a nautical chart is first. It is a graphic representation of the sea area and the coastal regions near to it. But I am sure it will become clear to you once you see what SeaAndSoulCharts has in store for you.

But first a little bit about how they got started. It began as a friendship between Bob and Anna who met while producing nautical charts for different companies.

Anna, the art director, and Bob, the manufacturer, shared besides what they were producing, a love for water, family, and friends. As a result of changing times, they decided it was time to work together under their own brand where they could ensure the best possible customer experience and have complete creative and quality control.

Almost 10 years ago Bob's company and Anna's company began working together to create personalized works of art. Having drawn and or manufactured for different companies over the last 13 year, the next step in the evolution was to manufacture their own brand with things like clocks, cribbage boards, serving trays and ornaments.

I bet I made you quite curious to see more about this amazing shop. Here are some of the Items I chose for you.

Castle Rock Lake Tray, Castle Rock Lake, Wisconsin, Nautical Art



Lake George Wall Clock. New York. Lake George. Nautical Clock



BEST SELLER, Holidays, Wood Ornament, Best Selling Gifts



BEST Selling Cribbage, New York City, Best 3 Player Cribbage Board

Great Lakes Tray, Great Lakes, Nautical Art, Nautical Gift

Confessions of a Seadbeadaholic part 7

Hi There.....Are you ready for Spring?

I am, for sure. I just love to see nature come alive. The first flowers and the blossoms in the trees. And most of all the weather getting better 😊

So I was thinking why not do a small Spring sale in my shop. You get a 10% discount during the month of May for a minimum purchase of 30 Euro.

Did you notice that I am slightly changing all my pictures in my shop too? I hope you like the new clean look. Let me know if you don't, cause I am always open for suggestions 😉

Actually, it is not just my shop that has a different look. Last year I had a Gastric Bypass and since then I lost 41 kilos. I always thought that this was the easy way, but it's not you know. The first weeks are the hardest.....you only get to eat things like yogurt or fresh cheese or soup.....nothing solid.

Then you can start eating a bit of bread again and later on some meat. But the things you need to be careful with are fats and sugars. If you don't abide by that rule you pay with heavy cramps, feeling unwell, sweating and sometimes vomiting. You really don't want that.....believe me 😵

But it's been a year now and I can eat almost everything.....in small amounts of course. What I like most is that I am never hungry anymore 😃

What is most striking for myself, is that there are a lot of things I used to love eating that I just don't like anymore. And now I also tend to choose the more salty foods over sweet foods. I am just not that interested anymore in things like cake or chocolate.

Here is my before and after picture


I hardly believe it myself sometimes.....but am so happy I took that step 😃

So back to my shop now.....let me show you a bit of what I have in store at the moment.

Class Jewelry for Her, Handmade Jewelry



Layers Bracelet, Elegant women Bracelet



Yellow necklace for Her, Glass Jewelry for Her




Ocean Waves Beadwork Bracelet for Women



Everyday Women Jewelry, Green Gift





Unique Jewelry for Women, Beadwork Bracelet Gift



Purple Jewelry for Her, Purple Jewelry for Girlfriend



Women Necklace with Turquoise Beads, Collar Jewelry for Her



Well Let me know what you think about the new look of my shop and me 😚

Hope you like my blog post.....Until next time.....Have a great weekend

Introducing you to - TheVeteransCompanion

Hi There.....Do you know any Veterans?

Yes? Great then you can let them read this blog maybe  😃

Ah, you want to know why of course. It's because today I would like to talk to you about an Etsy shop called TheVeteransCompanion.

This shop owner started actually by writing a blog to offer a different perspective in the world of PTSD from War Trauma. As time passed writing on this blog she noticed a lack in the Veteran-owned Businesses across the Nation which are affluent to all areas of life such as jewelry retail, crafting, and more.

Most Veteran-owned businesses tend to be driven more in the areas as construction, engineering, and woodworking. The shop owners Veteran owns a Construction Business.

At the Veteran Companion, he finds solace in working side by side as a husband and wife team in making scroll saw creations, helping with jewelry making, and running his construction business. This way he finds purpose by being of service to others.

With that passion, he can turn his love giving into something that helps connect others in their relationships.

So I suppose you can understand that the products in this shop are made with a lot of Love 😘

High time to show you what I selected for you this time

5.56 NATO Pendant Necklace



Wooden Air Force Key Chain



My Guide



Ascend Necklace



Custom Wood Keychain


Crown Charm Necklace



Land of Liberty



Hand Made Wooden Box



My Love
