Introducing you to - Buzzi

Hi There.....Do you have kids?

I have 2 kids.....well actually they are adults already.....A daughter of 32 who has a daughter of her own of 3 now and my son is 30 now.  ๐Ÿ˜Š

What most of you don't know is that I also blog on another platform called steam as seadbeady too - this is the link to it if you are curious about it - https://steemit.com/@seadbeady - .....I know I would be haha.....I am the curious type ๐Ÿ˜‰

On this Steem platform, I am what they call a hunter.

Not a real hunter cause I couldn't shout anything that lives.....that is totally against my nature. But you might wonder what I am talking about then ๐Ÿ˜ต

It is actually just their word for a product reviewer. When new products are launched, the makers need to get the word out before they can start selling items. So that is where the influencers and bloggers come in.....We write about those products so that other people can read all about them.

Sounds logical.....doesn't it  ๐Ÿ˜Š

So recently I got the opportunity to become an early bird tester of a new app for the android phone called Buzzi.


It's an app where you can find and give honest reviews to help the community members find the right product for them. In this first stage, they are trying out this app for everything to do with kids.

It should also become an easy way to connect with community members that have the same interests as you. You can follow members to see which products they are using and connect with them to share new moments together.

On top of that Buzzi wants to reward you for sharing those reviews.

Sounds cool.....doesn't it ๐Ÿ˜Ž

So I made my own profile on this app and tried to make a review on it for you to see how it works. I found that making your own profile was quite easy and it is really easy to scroll for what you are looking for in different categories.



The only thing I found a bit harder was to put on my own review because I had to type in the complete website URL for the product I was putting online.


But since that is something I put in my review for them I am sure they will find a way to make this easier.

Overall I really like this app and will definitely use it in the future to scroll for product reviews ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

Introducing you to - Aloeverademallorca

Hi There.....Do you like to pamper yourself?

Yes? Great cause I would like to introduce you today to Aloeverademallorca

They are a Belgian Company that works with products that originate from the biological farm Aloรซ Vera de Mallorca, where the products are made with care and a lot of passion. 

That sounds great.....doesn't it  ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

The farm is about 40 hectares. They raise and care for about 200.000 Aloe plants. It takes about 5 years to raise them before you can harvest the leaves. These plants need at least 2.000 hours of sunshine during the year to get juice nutrients.

The Aloe vera plant is known as a healing and useful plant from ancient times. Seems like even the ancient Chinese and Egyptians used aloe vera to treat burns, wounds, and reduce fever. There have been investigations that confirm that the old legends about aloe vera were true.

But I will tell you more about that in one of my next blogs because Aloeverademallorca gifted me some products to try out. And I need some time to test them first of course

So what did I find in my box ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Aloรซ vera body lotion (40 % Aloรซ vera)

Aloรซ vera hot/cold gel met chili olie en
83 % aloรซ vera

Aloe vera aftersun 40%

Aloรซ vera moisturizer ( 40 % Aloรซ vera)


If I have made you curious about these products be sure to keep an eye on my blog ๐Ÿ˜‰

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

Seadbeady's Finds on Etsy - 7

Hi There.....Do you like summer?

I do..... it's my favorite season ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

That might have something to do with the fact that my horoscope is Leo. Just like the Lion, I like to kick back and relax in the sun. Although next week will probably be too much cause there is a heatwave coming to Belgium and temperatures are gradually going to rise to about 37 degrees.

But that will be the perfect weather for some flip-flops don't you agree ๐Ÿ˜…

I was actually wondering where the name flip-flops came from.
Can't have that.....now can we. So I did some searching on the internet and this is what I found.

Their name comes from the sound these sandals make when they slap between the sole of our foot and the floor. Seems this type of sandals was already found with the Ancient Egyptians in 4000BC. The oldest pair found on display is at the British Museum.

Now that we got that covered let me show you the lovely flip-flops I found in some Etsy shops today ๐Ÿ˜Š

Summer Flip Flop



Personalized Hen/Bachelorette Flip Flops


Gypsy Boho Leather Anklebelts, Ankle wraps


Flip Flops - Red Stripe Design


Japanese Style Flip Flops Tongs Wedge Sandals


Summer Boho flip flops


Men's leather flip flop sandals dress sandals genuine leather black brown



Flip Flops with Anchor




Comfortable sandals, Leather sandals, BOHO Sandals, Beach sandals


Pretty.....don't you agree? Be sure to browse those shops for more if you need a pair of your own ๐Ÿ˜Š

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

Introducing you to - Splendid jewellery

Hi There.....Do you like jewellery?

Who doesn't.....right ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Did you know that the earliest known piece of jewellery was actually created by the Neanderthal? They made perforated beads from small sea shells.

So today I want to introduce you to Splendid Jewellery

Pooja Goradia, the shop owner, lives in Sydney, Australia. She started the store with the aim to deliver high-quality jewellery to customers at the lowest possible price.

Sounds great.....Don't it ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

Her philosophy is that all men and women deserve to feel attractive, and there's no better way to enhance your appearance than with an impactful piece of jewellery crafted to complement your features.

Trust is something that is very important to Pooja. Buying jewellery online exposes you to all sorts of scams that will leave you wanting more from your purchase and with no resource to recoup your lost expenses. That is why she decided to sell her jewellery with a Risk-Free policy. Each item from her shop comes with a warranty so you can get your money back should you find a manufacturing defect.

That is quite something if you ask me.....I haven't seen many shops that have this kind of Risk-Free policy ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

The shop's collection includes a wide variety of earrings, necklaces, bracelets, charms and so much more. And if you like you can ask for something custom made especially for you.

And on top of that, they ship their jewelry worldwide without additional costs.

So I felt super lucky when they gifted me a ring in exchange for a blog post and shout out on my Instagram account.

Let me show you this beauty ๐Ÿ˜

Sterling Silver Cubic Zirconia Diamond Ring



So let me show you some more things that she sells in her shop ๐Ÿ˜Š

Mesmerizing Silver Engagement Ring


Blue Gemstone and Cubic Zirconia


Tantalizing Promise Ring - Silver Jewellery


Engrave Name Sterling Silver Ring


Vintage Inspired Cubic Zirconia Ring


Bohemian Style Vintage Ring


Silver Vintage Ring with Opal Stone


Ruby Birthstone Ring


Trendy Rose Gold Ring With Cubic Zirconia


Those are a lot of pretty rings.....Don't you agree?

Off course you do.....who doesn't ๐Ÿ˜€

Most of you might not even know I have two shops because I haven't done much artwork lately but they are BeadworkSeadbeady and ArtSeadbeady.

The biggest problem with my Artshop is that I am a seedbeadaholic. And there is no such thing as a seedbeadaholics anonymous ๐Ÿ˜œ

Although I am certain that if it would exist I would not be going cause I am pretty much in denial haha. I enjoy beading so much that I make too much stuff.....so I have to sell some and that way I can pay for new beads.

Let me show you some of the most recent things I added to my BeadworkSeadbeady shop ๐Ÿ˜Š

Romantic Bracelet, Geometric Bracelet for Brides



Autumn Necklace, Bead Rope Necklace for Women


Romantic Necklace, Fairytale Jewelry for Her


Ocean Waves Beadwork Bracelet for Women

And here are some things that you can find in my ArtSeadbeady shop ๐Ÿ˜Š

So what do you think.....Interesting? Yes.....well, I am giving a 20% discount in both shops for a minimum purchase of 30 € ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

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

Introducing you to - Boyfriendstudios

Hi There.....What are you doing this weekend?

It's gonna be a sunny day here so we are planning to go to the store and having drinks later ๐Ÿ˜Š

Summer is coming pretty soon now so are you planning to go on a Holiday? Maybe I can tempt you in buying some cards first to send to your loved ones ๐Ÿ˜‹

That is why I wanted to introduce you this time to Boyfriendstudios

Tammy, the shop-owner, makes unique handmade greeting cards. She got started creating when her girls were young. She would sew clothes for them and make scrapbooks to commemorate her girls' childhood.

When her oldest daughter started college her creative outlet morphed into card making. She would put together special care packages and create a pretty card to put on top to brighten her daughter's day. Her girls' college careers overlapped significantly, so she ended up making twice as many care packages and pretty cards.

That's so sweet.....don't you think so too ๐Ÿ˜š

She gets inspired by paper and card stock because the possibilities are endless. The assortment of colors, patterns, and embellishments that are available make every card she makes a unique and special experience.

Her workspace is an entire room of years of stored fabric, paper, ribbon, glue, and other crafting materials. She just loves it and can spend hours sometimes in her room just creating until her heart's content.

I can relate to that.....my beads are a lot smaller but I can fill a whole closet with them ๐Ÿ˜

But that's not all.....she also sells a line of pie-themed cards at Sweet Revolution Bake Shop in Lafayette in Indiana. So don't forget to pay her a visit when you are in the neighborhood.

Ah well did I make you curious enough to go and see some of the collection of cards she sells ๐Ÿ˜

Cat Greeting Card, Card for Cat Lover


Horse Birthday Card Handmade


Wedding Shower Greeting Card Handmade


Thinking of You Greeting Card, Sympathy Card


Friendship Greeting Card, Friend Card


Friend Card, All Occasion Card, Card for Friend


Note Cards with Envelopes, Set of 5, Assorted Stationary


Baby Shower Greeting Card, Baby Boy Card



Wedding Shower Greeting Card Handmade


Good Luck Greeting Card


She makes lovely cards.....don't you agree? 

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

Seadbeady's Finds on Etsy - 6

Hi There.....Did you miss me last week??

I thought I'd take a week off.....sometimes life decides that you do other things than blogging ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

So I was planning to make my blog yesterday but then again life got in the way.....we went to the Antwerp Zoo.....me, my husband, my daughter, my son in law and my granddaughter. I really enjoyed it very much and so did my granddaughter ๐Ÿ˜€

Have you ever been there? It is really worth a visit you know.....but if you go it is best to go there by train because by car is very stressful.

Since I did see a few people wearing headwear, I got inspired to do a blog about it ๐Ÿ˜„
