Bullion Coins

Posted on Friday, January 9, 2009 in Favorite Finds, Gift Guide, Shopping Spree

A co – worker came in yesterday wearing the greatest coin necklace. As I inquired it got more fabulous and I have to have one. Her grandmother collected a few of these bullion coins from Canada, America, China, Australia etc. over the past 50 years and had them made into necklaces for the women in her family. My friend received her Chinese Bullion in the year she was born, awe. Her mother has received the Canadian and the American Buffalo. Aunts and cousins have also been adorned with this precious metal from South Africa etc.

 

The coin is HEAVY. Bullion means, a metal deemed to be precious if it is rare. It contains one troy ounce of pure 24k gold and it is legal mint, so not to be carried around lightly. It is a collector’s item and investment that will always be of value. Many nations mint bullion coins, of which the most famous is probably the gold South African Krugerrand. They will run you approximatly $700- $1000. 

 

Anyone having a daughter this year?

Here are the images on the coins and once I get a photo of her necklace I will share.

Posted on Wednesday, December 24, 2008 in Beauty Boutique, Favorite Finds, Gift Guide

Sorry the page isn’t scratch & sniff

Creed
Sold at Neiman Marcus, I have the Spring Flowers and it is wonderful. Silver Mountain Water is another popular aroma.

 

 

 

 

 

Bond No9
DNA For Her- I wore this in my wedding, wonderful gardenia smell. *The Scent of Peace is a wonder fragrance too. 

 

 

 

 

 

Jo Malone
Buy two and MIX & MATCH the scents. They specialize in combination scents so buy two and you get a third scent free! 

 

 

 

 

 

Le Lebo
The Discovery Set is an easy and (relatively) economical way to discover our scents. You get to chose 3 fragrances from our collection and you will receive them in 3 beautiful 5 ml glass rods (with atomizers and your name printed on the label). A beautiful way to either get addicted to one of them or to use them as fancy mini purse sprays. The Bergamot is amazing! 

 

 

 

 

 

Isse Miyake
Earth’s most precious element, water, is the central theme of L’eau d’Issey. By blending the sparkling qualities of water with the warm undertones of earth, the fragrance represents purity, serenity, movement, and vivacity-awakening a feeling of total beauty. The fragrance is a pure floral with musky and woody tones, including:A wide range of floral scents including lotus, cyclamen, freesia, carnations, and white lilies. Hints of amber-seed musk.

Logging in extra T.V. time this holiday?

Posted on Friday, December 19, 2008 in Favorite Finds

Do long vacations and holidays have you logging in some extra hours in front of the television? I will be the first to tell you don’t feel bad about it! Over Thanksgiving, I discovered the following three options, one movie and two reality TV series, and encourage you to tune in. 

I Want Candy (ADULTS ONLY)

Starring Carmen Electra
An independent film that is a delightful comedic surprise.

Plot: Two hopeful but frustrated college students head to London to sell a porn script they know is great. After numerous dead ends, their luck changes and they find a producer willing to front the film if they can cast the World’s #1 Adult Star, Candy Fiveways. In pursuit of their dreams they set out to make the movie happen. 

 

Whale Wars
Animal Planet

Activists of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society battle Japanese ships, who claim to be research vessels, over the practice of whaling in oceanic territories. The series takes place in the high seas where each countries interpretation of the International Whaling Commission laws contradicts one another.
Friday’s at 9pm

 

 

 

Big Break X- Michigan
Golf Channel

*** (12/21, 12/22 & 12/24)
What?!? Reality TV Golf. Couples compete through various challenges and if you love sports and all the vibrant personalities that go along with sports, you’ll get a kick out of the Big Break. Trust me, it is entertaining and it will make the golfer in your family happy.
