Crystallized Business Card Case (Review+Giveaway)

http://tigerlilysbook.blogspot.com/2010/11/my-new-crystallized-business-card-case.html


Crystallized Business Card Case (Review+Giveaway)

Hi guys,
I'm really sorry for not writing for so long, it's just the last 2 weeks has been very busy for me. It started with the Jakarta Fashion Week that started around 2 weeks ago, I was covering the whole shebang on my fashion blog so I have to go to fashion week every day and give full reports at night of the same day, pfiuh! But I love what I'm doing so yeah..
But I'm so sorry I didn't get an extra time to write here, I've been concentrating to my fashion blog, and then when the fashion week is finally over, I got caught up with the flu, the heavy kind, where you couldn't get out of bed, so again I have to leave this blog for a while. And that's the reason behind my absent.
But now I'm fully recovered and ready to blog again :)

To start, I have rewarded your patient with a new Giveaway! :D
The giveaway is courtesy of Executive Gift Shoppe, a website where you could get perfect gifts for business or pleasures. But first, the review first!

For the review, I thought I'd asked for their personalized service by ordering a White Crystal Business Card Case. I was going to a big blogger event a couple of weeks ago and I already got myself a free pack of business cards so I thought a representative business card case would be great. I chose the White crystal over the other crystallized options because I thought it would be neutral enough (well, I considered the pink crystal too since the color is very lovely but decided to go with white anyway).

When the business card case arrived (the shipment was fast enough for international shipping.  That means the ordering process is quick and looks like they processed my item fast enough). And here is my new crystallized business card: 


The business card case was made of a polished silver case frame covered with over 240 shimmering white crystals on the front, while the personalized inscriptions were at the back. Looks pretty, isn't it?

The inscriptions at the back of the case were engraved prettily and adds a touch of luxury to the case. Engraving are free (no extra cost) and you can personalized it up to two lines - max 25 characters per line (just like mine above). 

The case can hold up to 20 business cards, perfect to tote around even in your tiny little clutch bag. My freshly arrived business cards looks more cool inside the white crystal card case, I just love it (and I can't help to keep showing it around too ;p).
Overall, I love the whole appearance of my new business card case although my personal taste would have wanted the crystals to be a bit more sparkly and blingy, you know.. but that's just me ;p

sorry about the fingerprint marks on the back, i forgot to swipe it clean before taking the photo

The more important thing is I'm happy to know that the crystals are still intact after all those reckless gestures of mine (I used to change bags every other day and whenever I changed bags I will took the case and shoved it to the other bag, and then whenever I'm working I would take it from the bag and put it anywhere near me as long as there's a surface ;p) So yeah, the crystals are quite durable, and I'm satisfied with that.
This white crystal business card case is $45 but currently it is on SALE for $40.

As for the quality of the case, we're talking about good quality with affordable price here. Very recommended. I love the polished silver case, if you don't like the crystal ones you can try other style, there are a few options of Business Card Holder to choose from.
I also like the fact that you don't need to pay extra for personalized inscriptions, and the shipping is fast (they can ship the item the next day right after you ordered).

So with a service like that and no extra charge for personalized item (I'm not quite sure if all items has this service, please check first) you should consider getting something from Executive Gift Shoppe for the special person (especially guys) on your christmas gift list.

Executive Gift Shoppe have a big lists of gifts options for the men in your life but you could also find a ladies section there. All items are categorized neatly so it will make it easier for you to browse around. You could find watches, groomsmen gifts, Flasks, etc.

My first choice was this Doppio Coffee Travel Tote:
 It comes with 1 vacuum-sealed stainless steel thermal flask, 2 double-walled stainless steel mugs, 1 stainless steel container with screw-top lids (perfect for cream or sugar), 2 stainless steel teaspoons, and 2 napkins. Perfect for a day away with your loved ones ;)


 I don't know exactly why but old pocket watch like this always fascinates me, maybe because my love for vintage things, i don't know...but this particular one surely looks cool ;p

And this classic oval-shaped picnic basket... Ooh I always longed for a cute picnic basket, much like this one. This one comes packed with everything you need for a picnic in the park, service for two! Lovely, very lovely.

Giveaway: Community Coffee Holiday Gifts!

http://www.nutritionistreviews.com/2010/11/giveaway-community-coffee-holiday-gifts.html

Giveaway: Community Coffee Holiday Gifts!

Community Coffee sent me some of their holiday products to review.  I chose to get the holiday tumbler because I always lose one half of my coffee cups (either the lid or the cup itself).  I think that this mug is very cute and it kept my coffee hot for plenty of time!

I also got the "taste of the holidays gift set".  I was very excited to try these interesting kinds of coffee.  I got to try the Holiday Jazz, Bread Pudding, Breakfast Blend, and the Pecan Praline coffee! This best part about this kit besides the coffee tasting amazing is that it only costs $8.95.  I think that this would make an awesome hostess gift for a holiday party or a Christmas gift for a coffee lover in your family. I tried the bread pudding coffee so far because I thought that it was such a unique flavor and loved it! 

Please check out the Community Coffee website for more great holiday gift ideas!

Union28 is a company that makes marriage apparel.  Here is a little info about them: "Union28 was started by a married couple who knows what it is like to work through hard stuff and yet stay together and stay committed, choosing to forgive and be forgiven, only to grow in our love for each other MORE through it all."  Their mission is to "encourage marriages and to honor the sacred covenant between a husband and his wife by communicating a positive image of marriage in a fun and stylish way."


I love this whole idea and think that it is a great way to keep in mind that as a married couple, you still love each other.  I got to review this awesome pink shirt that says "My Husband Rocks".  Of course my husband loves it haha.  It fits really well and is very long which is what I love in a tee.  The company also makes really cute sweatpants and many different styles of t-shirts.

Getting my daughters to drink water is so hard but I've found that if you put it in a really cute bottle or cup that has a straw then you'd think it was straight sugar!! EcoUsable has a large variety of really cutely designed stainless steel water bottles. They also have entire line of stainless steel filtered water bottles.  Stainless steel is a great alternative to plastic which is great for you an our enviornment.  They are durable, light weight, reuseable and 100% recycable. They have a great non-slip base.



I received these really cute stainless steel water bottles to review. I love stainless steel water bottles because they tend to keep your water colder longer. I love the super cute designs and that they are eco-friendly. My girls absolutely love them. They've drank water every day this week without any fuss {which is amazing}! I even received 2 wraps which were really great for holding those really cold bottles. I thought it was something the kids would enjoy but i liked them too. Each bottle came with a lid but I was also sent two sport caps {drinking lid}. I don't mind drinking by taking off the lid it comes with but the sports caps made drinking much easier on my daughters.

Great Design . Great Product
