Jewelry-What in Life can you Get for Free?

Good afternoon all!

It’s me again, Laurie!  Your very lovable Gadget Gandhi!  LOL

Today I come to you with a great new service.  It is called the Accessorize Queen. The Accessorize Queen is a person (yes people, a real live person) who will give you great gift advise for your entire gift giving needs.  The best part about this service is it’s FREE.

Now, you all know I’m a skeptic.  Especially when someone is telling me a service or anything for that matter is free.  We all know everything comes with a price or at least an ulterior motive.  So, I made it a priority to check it out.  The Accessorize Queen is the Marketing Manager for Domaineltd.com located in Providence, RI.  Domaineltd.com is a designer and manufacturer of Quality Fashion Jewelry.  If you had read one of my previous blogs, I had blogged on their product.  They have great quality fashion jewelry at very reasonable prices.

Well, since I had a birthday party to go to over the weekend, I decided to put the Accessorize Queen to the test.  I anticipated, given the fact she works for DomaineLtd.com. that her ambition would be to sell me jewelry.  I sent the Accessorize Queen an email asking for her advice.  She promptly sent me a reply asking me specific questions about the girl I was buying for.  Ironically, the girl I was buying for is a bit of a “Tom Boy” or as my daughter likes to say “Tommy Girl”.( I love that expression!).  I’m sure you understand that jewelry would not be an appropriate gift for this individual.  I figured I had nothing to loose since I’m a bit girly, girl myself and I really had no idea what to get her.

After answering a few questions about my friend, she came back with a recommendation of a “Barnes and Noble Gift Card” with a recommended amount.  Honestly, I was shocked.  I thought for sure, she would recommend jewelry.

So, to satisfy my own curiosity, I sent her an email thanking her for the great gift idea and asked her how this “service” benefited her company?  Her recommendation had no mention of the DomaineLtd.com product.  Her answer was truly inspiring.  She said, “The objective of Accessorize Queen is to provide a true service to people out there who have a tough time trying to find the perfect gift.  Keeping in touch with people helps them identify peoples needs so they can continue to be a leader in their industry and ensure they provide the best to the consumer.  If a jewelry piece had been applicable, she would have provided me a link to domaineltd.com as well as other companies providing the same product so I could choose for myself.

Honestly, I was amazed by her answer but am pleased with the results of this service.  I highly recommend “Accessorize Queen” to anyone looking for the perfect gift!

Holiday Traditions- A Gift for Her

2009 Swarovski Ornament
Good morning all! It’s me again, Laurie. Your very likeable gadget Gandhi! – LOL

Well, last night, since nobody was home, I decided to venture into my basement and pull out the holiday décor. After a very grueling 30 minutes of hauling boxes up the basement stairs, I was finally ready to sit down and begin the ritual of sorting through the holiday decorations.

It’s amazing how many happy memories that floods you when you’re sorting through items you haven’t seen in at least a year. I found many homemade gifts that were made for my husband and me by our children. Shells painted with holiday cheer, paper Mache decorations with loving notes and I can never forget, the infamous spaghetti necklace. Now that was a long, long time ago.

As I was taking out the last of the homemade gifts and decorating them around my house, I finally came to my box of special ornaments. This particular group of ornaments has a very sentimental meaning to me. It is my collection of Swarovski Special Edition Holiday Ornaments. There is a new ornament made for each passing year.

Many years ago, when our children were small, my husband and I decided it would be best not to buy each other gifts at the holidays. We were already strained trying to raise 3 children and most of our money went to living expenses, or the children. My husband has always been a very proud man. He has always done his part to ensure that our children had the best holiday they could possibly have. He would work many; many extra hours to make sure each of his children got that one special gift they had asked for. I have to admit, he never once failed in his quest.

On one particular year, after the children had opened their presents, I noticed there was another small gift stuffed between the branches of our tree. Puzzled, I walked over to see whom it was for. To my surprise, it was for me! As my husband looked up at me sheepishly, I opened the box. It had to be the most beautiful crystal I had ever seen. It was a 2000 Swarovski Special Edition Holiday Ornament. I could tell from looking at it, it was expensive. I asked him, “Why would you buy something so expensive for me?” He said, “ To see the happiness on your face when you opened the box.” I was beyond surprised and amazed that he purchased such a beautiful, thoughtful gift. Feeling a little less than thoughtful myself, I said, “But I didn’t get anything for you.” He looked at me in surprise and said “Yes you did. The happiness on your face is the best present you could ever give me”. (I got to admit, he really is a great guy).

Every year since that day, there has been a box with a new Swarovski Special Edition Ornament for me under our tree. He has bought me one every year since that day. (And I make sure I have a present for him too.) It always makes me smile and has become my most favored tradition.

Please feel free to leave me a comment.

The 2009 Swarovski Special Edition Holiday Ornament can be purchased at Merchants Overseas, Amazon.com as well as many other online retailers or department stores. (The best buy I have seen has been Amazon.com)

Well, that’s all for now. Until next time.

When Will This Recession End?

"We the People" and "United we Stand"OK people, it’s me again “Laurie”. Today’s blog is dedicated to educating all the Consumers out there who want to know: “When will this Recession end?”

The news has been nothing but doom and gloom for over a year. I have watched many friends, relatives and associates loose their jobs, get reduced hours, loose their house, loose funds in a 401K’s as well as seen many homeless “tent city’s” sprouting up in my own state. I have to admit, it has been pretty bleak. The recession has made its intruding mark on all facets of our society. I do however; believe a good part of our current woes could have been avoided.

Have you ever heard the term “ignorance is bliss”? Most of you have and in certain circumstances it should be used. Due to the mainstream media’s attempt to educate the public on the financial crisis, they made the crisis worse. The media, hosted by an assortment of educated individuals emphasized the problems for over a year without emphasizing a solution to fixing our problems. (And people think the news is unbiased??) People need to understand that the mainstream media is a business. Their job is to generate news that people want to hear. Their objective is to create higher ratings than their competition. Unfortunately, doom and gloom sells. Morbid curiosity of a negative situation seems to draw an individual’s attention more so than circumstances of a happy nature. So I guess in a nutshell our own curiosity is our downfall.

To address the problem, we need to ask; “What makes our economy work?” The answer to that is simple. EACH AND EVERY AMERICANS DAILY SPENDING OF MONEY. Can you believe the answer is this simple? When people think their “rainy day has arrived”, money stops being spent. People will horde their money to make sure their essentials are met. If large numbers of people stop spending money, the results are catastrophic. Consumers need to purchase a company’s services or goods. If consumers stop purchasing a company’s services or goods, the company goes out of business. The people who work for this company loose their jobs. (BUSINESS 101)

So what happened in the good US of A? The people of our economy stopped spending money in unprecedented numbers. This is why our unemployment rate is so high. This is why people cannot pay their bills. This is why people are loosing their houses. You need spending to create jobs, without spending people cannot locate new jobs. The job pays the bills. If the jobs disappear, the bills go unpaid and more companies go out of business. This has put us in a down cyclone effect. With the loss of so many jobs, people are forced to take jobs with much lower pay reducing the individual’s standard of living. Hence, they are no longer capable of paying for the things they could previously afford. I’m sure you don’t want this to happen to you and for anyone who is currently affected, I’m sorry. I’m not saying we didn’t have other problems in the banking area but I feel strongly that the impact would not have been so severe without the compounded problem of job loss. Reason being: Most people make enough to pay for what they have, but when that is reduced or eliminated, you no longer can provide for what you could previously afford. Everything you pay for creates a paycheck for someone else.  I believe, if Americans would have continued to spend their money, the foreclosure problem would have been minimized, State governments would not have the crisis they do and the majority of job losses could have been avoided.  “We the People” are compounding the problem.

We all want to know “How do we fix this?” This recession will end when we as consumers start spending our money. This in turn will generate jobs. The media has done quite a fabulous job of scarring the American public but it is up to us to educate ourselves and fix this current problem. Some of the programs initiated by the government will help but the main fix needs to come from the American public. We as a whole, 300 million plus, need to infuse our money back into our economy. We will then finally feel the relief from this big mess. After we fix this problem, then its time to tackle Washington and all of the problems there!

Until next time, buy something to help infuse money into businesses (they get busy, they hire more people), go out to dinner (owners and staff make more money, infuse their money into our economy) innovate and start your own business (create new jobs). We need to create jobs. Jobs pay the bills.

It’s Your Money! Spend it Wisely!

The Best Jewelry Deal on the Web!

Domaine Ltd. Amazing Fashion Jewelry

Good morning World!  It’s me again, Laurie, the Gandhi of Consumer Products.  (I’m really starting to like that name.)   Today’s blog is dedicated to all the girls out there who like to look their best.  OK girls, your going to love this one.

As I was randomly browsing the web, looking for something to help accessories my new outfit, I found this fantastic new website.  The website is www.domaineltd.com.  This site has great costume jewelry at unbeatable prices!  Now, we all know that I believe in getting the best value for my money.  Like all of you, I work very hard for every dollar.  I want to look good but I can’t afford to spend a fortune.  I know we all secretly dream of winning the Powerball so we can go out on that elaborate shopping spree.  Unfortunately, for most of us, it will never happen.  I too am under funded to fulfill my full shopping potential.  I live the “True American Experience”.  I bargain hunt.

When I first viewed this site, being the skeptic that I am, I said to myself “This stuff must be JUNK. Why else would the items be so cheap?”  To appease my own curiosity, I ordered a piece.  I have to admit, I was surprised when I received a very nice piece of jewelry.  Not at all what I expected.

Bewildered by the idea of buying a really nice necklace for under $10.00 when I know very well it should have cost between $20-$30, I made a point of calling the company to obtain more information about them.  I was pleasantly surprised with the information they provided.  This company is a manufacturer of costume jewelry located in Providence, RI.  They sell primarily to the retailers and catalogs in the USA.  All their costume jewelry is designed and manufactured by them.  Their website was set up recently to sell the remainder of their discontinued items.  They have small amounts of stock of each item shown on the site (varies per style). This means it’s first come, first serve. They are leftovers pieces from a large customer who has discontinued the item or a sample item they chose not to go forward with.  Items are put on their web site once they have been discontinued.   So, I asked, “What is wrong with it?  Why is it discontinued?”  The girl told me, “Nothing”.  She explained that the fashion industry has forever changing trends and styles.  Jewelry styles change season to season just like clothes.  To remain a leader in the Jewelry industry, it is important that they continually design and develop new pieces that correlate with upcoming seasonal trend.  The website is regularly updated every season with new items that have been discontinued from past seasons.

After speaking with their representative, I felt like I hit the JACKPOT!   Now, I am a big clearance rack shopper.  You can get the best deals by buying items between seasons.  Can you believe it?  Now we have access to the CLEARANCE RACK for jewelry. This is a website where I can find a great Christmas presents for my girlfriends.  Who doesn’t like jewelry?   The best part is I don’t have to spend a ton of money to do it.  (But it will look like I did- LOL)

Feel free to send me a comment.

Bye for now!
