Puentes Denver 8pc Tie Clip Set

Puentes Denver on Amazon offers affordable tie clips for any occasion. Their 8pc Tie Clip Set offers a stylish yet affordable option for men who want to look dapper without breaking the bank. Included in this set are 6 silver colored and 2 gold colored tie clips, each with their own unique design. These tie clips can complete and compliment any outfit.



I received an 8pc Tie Clip Set in exchange for a spot on my blog. This tie clip set has 8 study tie clips, that can go with almost any outfit. My boyfriend has not previously owned any tie clips, because all the ones in stores local to us are outrageously expensive. He now has clips for the more "formal" occasions that we go to. I can guarantee that he will be wearing a sliver one to a wedding that I am in later this year. They are the perfect length for regular ties. They are a little too long to wear with skinny ties.



I actually like using some of these clips with my scarves. I feel that they give my scarves the perfect weight and keep them from flying all around on windy days.


These tie clips come in a nice black gift box that can be easily wrapped to give as a gift. These would make a great graduation gift for high school or college seniors.


Overall, these tie clips are made pretty well. The quality is nice and the designs are well done. You get 8 nice tie clips for only $16.69. To see other products available from this company you can click here.

WAFF Medium Glitter Fuchsia Notebook Combo Pack

I'm the kind of person who leaves notes all around the house. Seriously, I can never find the ones I am looking for. I know I should just save notes in my iPhone, but I only do that for my grocery list. All other notes get lost into the abyss it seems. I recently got the cutest notebook on earth, to keep all of my notes in one place! The Glitter Waff Notebook is perfect for children and colorful fun loving adults alike.

Waff sells a variety of different notebook products. Their unique product includes an adorable grid of squares that you can stick their letter/number cubes to to spell out words or phrases or even plain color cubes to create designs with. Their notebooks are sold individually, or as a combo pack with the letter cubes. You can buy more letters/numbers separately. I personally received the Medium Fuchsia Glitter Combo Pack that came with 1 190page notebook, 70 letters, and 2 notebook clips. 


The silicone notebook sleeve is durable. I have not had any problems with it ripping. The cover is very soft, and there is no glitter fallout whatsoever. The clips are removable and can stick to other areas of the notebook if you want to remove them and place them in another area.


I think this notebook would be a great gift for really anyone of any age. There are many colors that both young boys and girls will like. This could be given as a back to school gift, a notebook for a woman to keep in her purse, or even given as a christmas/birthday gift. It can be customized with the removable cubes to leave a special message before you give it to the recipient. 

Overall, I think this is an adorable and fun notebook. The medium combo pack that I received costs $17.99 on Amazon. To see more products offered by Waff you can click here. While I do think this price is a little high, I do think that it might be worth it since it is so darn cute. I did receive the product for free in exchange for my honest feedback.

Create Your Perfect Media Kit With Hip Media Kits.

*Post contains affiliate links. Media Kit bundle received in exchange for my honest feedback.*



Media Kits are something I have always struggled with when it comes to blogging. I am not a graphic designer, and I am not very creative. I never know what to include when talking about myself, this goes for "about me" sections, resumes, media kits and so much more. I think the part I struggle with the most is determining what is and isn't appropriate to add. All of the Media Kits I have made for myself in Photoshop all looked childish and unprofessional. As a blogger we are supposed to impress the companies we want to work with, and I found it hard to feel confident as a blogger with a media kit that looked like something a middle schooler made in MS paint.

For those of you who don't know, a Media Kit is sort of a "snapshot" of your blogs statistics that companies use to determine if your audience is a match for their sponsorship. Basically, they want to know how your blog will be beneficial to them, and knowing your audience is key. It gives businesses a glimpse into your online presence, without sending them on a scavenger hunt. Having a more polished media kit will put you at an advantage over other bloggers. It shows dedication to how you appear online. Providing a Media Kit gives businesses something of yours that they can keep on file, and potentially pull out in the future. It will have all of your information readily available for them and you could be the first they contact for future partnerships.

Recently, I came across Hip Media Kits. Hip Media Kits offers dummy-proof (my words, not theirs) media kits that almost any blogger can benefit from. They offer 6 media kit packages. 5 contain a specific type of media kit, and the 6th is a bundle package that includes all media kits. Each individual media kit package is $24.99, the bundle package is $87.46. These media kits can only be edited using Microsoft Word. They accept Paypal, credit card , and debit card payments.

Each media kit offered is highly customizable and effortlessly easy to edit. I love how easy it is to add/remove sections, change colors, edit fonts, and rename headings. I chose to use the 1 page "Cute" media kit.  Using Microsoft word, it only took me about half an hour to complete my media kit. If you're not very tech savvy, Hip Media Kits will modify your Media Kit for you, for an additional $50.

I kept the basic template the same, but I did change a few things in my media kit. I added a small "interests" section below my social media numbers. The social media area in the original had a combined number of all social media accounts, but I chose to break it down and show the numbers for each individual account. In my personal experience, many companies I have worked with have asked for specific Facebook/Twitter numbers, and showing the numbers individually saves me time later on.

Below is an image of my finished media kit. It may appear a little blurry, but clicking on the image should show a clear version of it.


I really like that these media kits have a lot of structure to them. They have sections that I would not have thought to include on my own. I really like the section for "Past Partners". For some reason I never thought to include that in Media Kits I have made for myself.  

Overall, I am very pleased with the Media Kit's I received. They are very easy to edit and customize. The guide included with each kit makes it easy to figure out what I needed to do. If you would like to learn more, or purchase your own Media Kit from Hip Media Kits, you can check out their website.

JTMH Accessories iPhone Case.

Keep your iPhone 6 safe, and look good while doing it with a phone case from  JTMH Accessories.  I recently received a white phone case, with a high fashion cat lady design.This scratch resistant glossy case is not only stylish, but also durable. It will keep your iPhone blemish free. It leaves easy access to all the ports, switches, and buttons. The phone case fits snugly, is easy to "install" and remove.




The phone case is made from damage-resistant polycarbonate. It will protect your phone adjacent scratches, falls, and harsh impacts. The stylish design is created through "in-mold printing",  because of this it wont fade.

I like that the case is not bulky, but added the perfect thickness to the phone. I have found that the iPhone 6 is a little difficult to hold, because while it is big, it is also thin. I think that makes it a little awkward hold. I believe that cases make it less awkward and a little easier to hold. This case is no exception.

I gave this case to a friend of mine, who ended up loving it. I knew it was just her style. They also offer a design with a male wolf in a tuxedo. It is pretty dapper looking if I do say so myself.




To learn more about the cat lady case, or to purchase it for yourself ($10.99) you can visit their Amazon page.

Hoo Rag

Hoo Rag? What the heck is a Hoo Rag? Well, a hoo rag is a pretty innovative bandana. The Hoo Rag is a UV protective, light weight, breathable, bandana made from 100% microfiber. It is made in a loop, sort of like an infinity scarf, making this extremely versatile. There are 10+ ways to wear it. To see some of the ways, check out the video below!



When I first got it, I was in shocked that there were so many ways to wear it. I had to look up the video and find out for myself just how many ways I could make it work for me. I plan to upload a video in the future showing how I wear mine. 

I think they are so neat. I received a leopard print one. The print is beautiful and vibrant. The image is crystal clear. 


Most Hoo Rags are $15.95 or $17.95. Hoo Rags with only the Hoo Rag logo displayed all over the bandana are only $9.95, and mystery hoo rags are $9.00.

Hoo Rag also offers custom designs. Whether you need them for promotional products, for your group or club, or for your retail store, Hoo Rag will work with you to create the perfect design for your needs.
