One Kings Lane! More Than a Treasure Hunt Every Day!!!!

29 Jul

Are you looking for something electic?  Or something you ‘ve always wanted….but wanted to wait for a reduction in price. 

Well, One Kings Lane has something for everyone! 

The founders, Susan Feldman and Alison Pincus are two woman, I say two visionaries who definitely know how to have you dream! 

Both more than familiar with the worlds of Fashion and business, started this company in 2009!   The focus was to offer beautiful items right up front, which are sometimes not readily available.  

This concept has definitely worked.  One Kings Lane now has almost two million subscribers!!!  Sales grew 500% in 2010 and still going!  So much so, that the Wall Street Journal had to take notice in their Digits, Technology & Insight blog! 

Whether it was ever a problem for anyone to shop.  It’s no problem for them and their team, because if you cant’ get to that destination, One Kings Lane will bring it to YOU!!!! 

Morocco, India,  Italy…you name it.  Beautiful home decor items and trinkets that will uplift your lifestyle with the things that you simply love…making you wonder how could you be ever without it!

We’ve got a glimpse of Susan and Alison on Bravo’s Million Dollar Designers!  With the assistance of  Martyn Lawrence, Designer of the Year, they all selected some very cool and inspiring  items for One Kings Lane in London, United Kingdom.   Check Bravo’s TV listing for a rerun of the episode.  It was quite a fun and exciting adventure to watch.

How does One Kings Lane  work? <I know you’re asking!>

There are the Daily Sales where top brand items go on sale for 3 days!  There is an array of items from rugs, accessories, bath items, stationery and even items for your lovable pet! 

There is so much more, but the items are simply beautiful!  If you are looking for a gift, this should one of your top searches!!

If you still find yourself searching, how about the Tastemaker Tag Sales. You have to become a member (it’s free) to be in on selected designers to give a special look into their collections and offer to YOU!  There also are movie set sales, props from a film set and some surprise items, leaving you to say double WOW!

Lastly it’s the DOWNSTAIRS items, to be in on clearance items and deals!  This is a come back often and see; it’s like being on the look out for that item and glad that you discovered it.

When you get a chance, join and browse around!  I guarantee that you will be excited about the things found at your fingertips!  My latest find,  two Sweet Orange and Grapefruit perfume candles by Saint Parfum!  It arrived yesterday, a treat for me……that is simply divine!

Enjoy Your Summer! Take the SUN Block Oath!

11 Jul

Summer time!!!!!  While enjoying the barbecues, the beaches, amusement parks and fun time at the pool. Please, please do not forget to put your SPF sun block on to protect your skin from the sun’s UV rays!

Please take the sunblock oath!

I _________________ do solemnly swear to re-apply sun block lotion to my skin, every two hours, drink plenty water and my daily sun limit will be ___ and I will stick to it!

Ladies, if you are wearing makeup, make sure your moisturizer is on, then the sunblock before apply your make-up. Oh! Don’t forget waterproof mascara is the ticket!

By doing this, you are protecting your health; as well as enjoying your summer days!

NewsWeek Diana at 50 Cover!

1 Jul

Please give me your comments on this cover! 

I do not want to influence anyone’s opinion; but I for one was not happy. 

The best Diana magazine cover for me was People’s magazine (I still have it).  

Her style, her grace and her humanitarian efforts, should be respectively written  for her remembrance!

Happy Birthday Diana!
