Ivy and Wilde – An Honest Review on Luxe™ Series

The Luxe™ Series from Ivy and Wilde is a remarkable instance of practicality blended perfectly with sophistication.

It is rare to come across such an exceptional array of kitchenware on the Ivy and Wilde store in which each product within the series brings something completely unique and distinguished to the table. Beautiful enough for special occasions but durable enough for daily use, each product in this exquisite line of wares displays an incredible versatility. Considering the high quality of materials used, the prices are incredibly reasonable, as well.

The Luxe™ Series feels like a breath of fresh air.

Infused with an undeniable influence of modern chic luxury, the silverware sets are stunning; designed in an impeccably unconventional manner, they are made from 100% high-quality stainless steel, which is fashioned into a metallic golden hue.

The elegance is heightened by the contrast of color: black, white, pink, and blue are all available.

One model, however, is completely gold- without a color to contrast. Akin to this, one is completely shaded with a matte black, and does not feature any gold whatsoever. The set contains one fork, one knife, and two spoons- one for the standard course and another for dessert. Conveniently, every piece is safe to be washed in the dishwasher– however, the company recommends that you avoid detergents scented with citrus. Again, these have integrity in every sense of the word: they are durable, long-lasting, and thoroughly eye-catching.

The chopsticks in the Luxe series by Ivy and Wilde are equally appealing. The set includes five pairs of chopsticks, all completed with gold mirror polishing.  Made from the same stainless steel as the other set but with a hollow interior, they bring a similar level of decadence– this time, though, combined with an undeniably international influence. Some foods are meant to be consumed with chopsticks. If you’re going to serve East Asian cuisine or Asian Fusion dishes in the household, it’s best to do it right. Not only do these chopsticks allow you to do so, but they add an undeniable dash of class and style. Like the other dinnerware, they are dishwasher safe.

Finally, the plates and bowls offered in the dinnerware set are just marvelous. Available in either white or black with a gold inlay which is prominently featured around the rim, these dishes range in size. There are several options available, ranging from 5.5 inches all the way to 10-inch plates. They are hand-crafted, too, meaning there are nuanced differences between each artisan-created dish.

If there is one complaint to be lodged, it would be that the shipping time took a little longer than I’d like it to.

However, when everything finally arrived, it was definitely worth the wait. The shipping time can be attributed to the popularity of these products, which causes them to be sent from the warehouse, rather than the retailer.

These days, there is no denying that home decor extends far beyond the furniture. Our taste in design can be judged by the decisions we make concerning the smallest decorative details within the home. In this way, dinnerware of all kinds is subject to a level of stylistic scrutiny. This series has allowed me to make seriously strong impressions on guests, and feel good about how I serve food for my own family, too.

Needless to say, I highly recommend The Luxe™ Series.

Unu Motors: A Company With A Cause


I am currently doing a research project about companies and business that creates an impact to the society. Our professor Sir Gary Castro Smith of our entrepreneurship class assigned us to search for such topic to present in our class next week. I was assigned to sear h good companies somewhere in Europe but I do not have any idea about good business in Europe. I thought I will have a hard time looking for one but I was happy to stumble upon one great company that fits the topics.

Upon searching over the internet, I stumbled upon this company, Unu Motors, which has good reviews and feedback from clients. I wondered what made this company liked by many and so I researched more and more and found out that I have been looking for. After a couple of pages where I saw good feedback for the company, I finally realized that yes. This one is what I am looking for and I am excited to share the facts I have learned about the cool company.

Unu Motors is Creating a Big Impact In Transportation

I love how their electric scooters or ‘elektrische scooter,’ is one of its flagship products, make an impact for the good of the environment. It is run by electricity and you do not even need to gas up because it comes with an easy to grab battery just right for every outgoing person. Also, it does not create noise, so imagine the fleeting feeling of riding a scooter without hearing too much noise that ordinary scooters give. What a relieving feeling.

Unu Motors wants to provide more and more options of great transportation option for its customers

Aside from electric scooters which have been generating good feedback for its awesome features, I think Unu Motors has a love way to go when it comes to giving what is best for the customers. One of their objectives is to provide good service for people and I think it will not stop there.

Gift for My Husband

Whenever it’s my husband’s birthday, I never know what to get him. I go to Survival cooking to look at all the great appliances, as they seem to have amazing reviews for all of his interests… But I begin to feel that those domestic tools begin to “get a bit old” because I get them for him every year. This year, I decide to look for the best watches under 500 for him, because he has never really had a nice watch but is always noticing when other men have nice new watches…

I think this will be an incredible surprise for him and I can’t wait until he sees it. Gift shopping is such an interesting mix of being stressful and fun, but it is always so rewarding when you truly love your hubby like I do! This is going to be a truly great day, I certainly can’t wait to give him his amazing new watch– but first I have to pick one! Picking him a watch will surely be interesting and maybe a little bit stressful but that is okay and I am willing to undertake that level of stress for the man who I am such a big fan of. His gift is going to be great. I am deciding between two watches right now, but that’s only because they both represent a different part of his personality, which is so diverse and deep and wonderful. I love him, and I sure hope that he loves his watch! I think he will– I think he is expecting another domestic tool, but it will make him feel good to be able to put a classy, $400 watch on his wrist, I think. I always get the jewelry and accessories– maybe this means that he will end up buying Me a GRILL. LOL!

My Mia 2 Reviews

Hello there, ladies! It has been a long time since i last posted in this blog site. I have been very busy doing works with my client. I have landed business with top brands lately and I know there have been a little time to allot for this website. But still, I am going back to writing, and sharing my thoughts with you, my dear readers, now as I just closed some deals already.

Now, you know always love doing reviews for different products that are new and I have tried. A friend, who is into marketing beauty products and equipments, introduced me to Clarisonic Mia 2, a brush with the superb technology of removing deep seated dirt in the face in no time, and is absolutely cool.

She sent me a product, along with a cleanser for me to try and here is my Mia 2 reviews. Hope you liked it!

Clarisonic Mia 2 is a product that is new to ear. We heard a lot of products introducing mere facial cleansers with the promise of removing your pimples. There are even equipment saying there is a guaranteed you will no longer have pimples around the face and just young looking lady.

What i love most about this product is that is solves a longtime problem for girls. When you use this one, you no longer need to double check if you have cleaned thoroughly you face.

In fact, Clarisonic Mia 2 can actually clean six times better than bare hands only. Well, I totally agree with this. Our little fingers could not really get into our pores and prohibit dirt from oing its tricks.

With this product, it combines a technology and water to remove one’s blemishes and unwanted pimples in no time.

As for the price, I know. Clarisonic Mia 2 is a little hefty in the price. Yes, we know that. But the reward is not just for your client presentation or thesis work presentation. It is about yourself. Your self esteem, and confidence. No one could top that.

The Best BBQ Party Ever With Comfortable Seats

My dear friends!

Last week we visited the region, which is one of the most beautiful countryside in the state. The reason why we came there was a BBQ party of my lovely friend Julia. I haven’t seen have for years and, so it was also a great opportunity to have some chat; to learn how things are going with her since we’ve graduated.

Well, my friend has a cozy house with a lovely garden. What we really needed is more space there, but, actually, it wasn’t a big problem. Her garden was decorated with marvelous things, such as colorful bottles, poppy sways, path lights and funny chickens. Looking great! I’d love to point out her interesting chairs. I was wondering where she could find them and she told me that she has bought them from the Internet. She has Adirondack Chair. As far as I know they are very popular this season. But, who cares about the trends? I liked them for their beautiful look and high quality; easy in using and the construction look strong. I guess it will not crack so simple. She has different types of this stylish furniture (Lifetime Adirondack Chair, Outdoor Interiors Eucalyptus, POLYWOOD South Beach), so you will never get bored. You can feel how comfortable they are by changing your place. It was hard to understand and recognize the winner of this competition. I tested all of the, and honestly telling you they are really nice! Not just a look, but the quality and the price is so attractive.  They will stay new forever! 

So the party has started. We were 40 people in one place and without any doubt it was very crowded! And you know, not just me, but also all my friends marked this new chair as excellent design decision. Everyone talked about Julia’s house and her great taste. She knows how to make her guest happy.

We played a wide range of sports: badminton, table tennis and somehow we could manage to play football on such small area. We were served tasty food: seafood, toasts, salads and luxury wine. We definitely had a great time together!

All in all, I have to think about our own country house as well. I wish we could have time and of course a huge amount of money. Then we would be able to arrange the same events too. It would be exciting to be able to take advantage of all perks that my friend gets living in the country side.

Thank you for reading my post and don’t forget to leave a comment. Probably, you have Adirondack Chair or planning to buy them!


Simple Help for Busy Mums

Hello to all mummies!

When you have a lot of children – you can forget about yourself. Comfort? Rest?! Are you kidding? These things are in your dreams for the next few years when you’re a mum… or maybe longer, it depends. Are you familiar with the situation when you have no time, but a one big trouble called “being a good mother who can do lots of things at once”? If so, keep reading.

I have two beautiful twins. Yes! Exactly! Probably when you read this you can feel a deep sympathy to me and wonder how I was able to keep up with everything and haven’t gone crazy… Well, there is no doubt, it was really hard, but I found a way; I managed to be a good and caring mother and I had enough time to give love to both of my beauties!

The first thing I did was the hiring of a nanny. It was a young nice lady, who helped me a lot with my children, I trusted her and felt really safe. However, she came only for a daytime and I found it a bit problematic to care for both of children at once. You know what I’m talking about if you ever cared for a baby. When the one sleeps, the other wakes up and it goes on and on. My husband was sick of these sleepless nights so he searched through the internet for any advice. How I love my lovely for his care, he always finds the best ways to solve the problems. This time he found a smart Wifi baby monitor. (OMG! Ladies, I just ask you to google for this stuff right now!) It saved our pure sleep and gave us a chance to enjoy at least one more hour of sleep each single night due to the function called “Night Vision”.

As we have twins, we bought two Comfort cams and put them in the rooms of our babies. For now, there is no problem with a night-time sleep. We installed two apps (on my husband’s phone and mine) to monitor the rooms at one time. It’s amazing! It was a usual thing when Cindy (my lovely) loudly cried or woke up and, as you can guess, automatically awoke her sister. But, finally, all these horrible nights were absolutely in the past. I can always come to the room to my baby and be sure that there is no way to disturb the other’s pure dream. Actually, you can even sing lullabies to your lovely one without going to his or her room. It’s perfect. This stuff is super easy to use and it has a lot of useful functions.

I really appreciate the developer’s work as for now I can also see my second daughter playing with a nanny at the time when I feed the first one in the other room.

Also, I can always track the situation at home when I’m out. Another great thing is that when my husband is on his business trip he is still able to see his babies any time he wants to. Yes, sure, Skype is also a great tool to show them to my husband, but I use each single free moment to sleep, not to chat or something. So the only important thing in the usage of this cam is to be connected to the wifi.

If you have a wifi you have a power to control everything with the Comfort cam. The Comfort cam is a great helper! It really works and helps to be in the present moment with your kids in the daytime and it’s a super cool guardian of your children’s sleep at the nighttime. I highly recommend you to try it! I couldn’t be silent and not share this information as I wish you to become as happy as me and what is the most important, to enjoy the time of being a mother.

Bye, bye, mummies! Wish you to be the best one on your amazing journey called “Caring Mother”. Hope, my feedback was very useful for all of you.

All the best!

My Friend Sold A House In Vancouver! Check It Out Here!

So, one of my very best friends is coming to visit, and I get the feeling that she is going to be covering a lot of the costs! Recently, she inherited some property in the Vancouver area, did and she sold it and literally made millions of dollars. It was her parents land, and she didn’t have any interest in living there, and when they bought it the property was very modestly priced. Now, property values in Vancouver are literally some of the most expensive in the entire world. It’s a hot commodity Market, but she had a really great Vancouver Realtorwho was able to make this property stand out from the other Burnaby condos for sale. The realtor is also a big help when one is looking for Coal Harbour condos for sale. 

 Actually, Burnaby is not quite Vancouver, but it’s about as close to Vancouver as you’re going to get without being in Vancouver, and it is significantly much closer and more connected to the city of Vancouver than most of the other suburbs in the region. Anyway, the properties there are also very expensive and worth a lot.

So, I’m pretty sure that my friend doesn’t actually read my blog, I don’t share it with people like her very often, so I feel comfortable speaking about this. Wouldn’t it be so strange to fall into literally millions of dollars? A lot of people dream of it, and get jealous when it happens to someone, but I guess I don’t feel jealous even a little bit. It seems like it would actually be pretty stressful to have so much money all the sudden, and hard to decide what to do with it.

Maybe it’s just me but I think I would get very anxious about doing the wrong thing, or not doing enough of the right thing, or not being generous enough, or being taken advantage of for my generosity, as what my Vancouver realtor friend say. I think I actually preferred like, a normal life like I’m living now. I’ve got friends, family, and all sorts of beautiful things that money can actually buy. So does my friend, and I’m not worried about her having a hard time. She’s really intelligent I think she can handle it better than I would, I guess I’m just putting out some food for thought..
