Boxwave Accessories For My Nokia Lumia 920 Phone

I use my Nokia Lumia 920 phone a lot on the go, and always fear that it will drop because it is a little slippery without a case. To avoid it from falling or getting damaged it is important to have a good quality case and screen protector. After all a good phone is a good investment.

Unique Nashelle Handmade Jewelry

Nashelle has a wide selection of jewelry to suit our taste.  I found the designs of the earrings, necklaces, rings and bracelets to be very original and unique.  The simplicity of some designs are inspired by nature and some jewelry have a combination of metal and stone.  I felt a sense of peacefulness and appreciation in all the Nashelle designs, so I had a hard time to choose one that I liked :)
After going through their wide selection, I chose this beautiful stack 'pure' bracelet that goes well with any outfit and can be worn for any occasion.  It looks like there are lots of bangles, but it is a one-piece bracelet that doesn't make noise.  I like the look of wearing 7 bangles without the jingle :) so I found this bracelets very pleasing to wear.  I like how easy it is to put and remove the bracelet.  This sturdy bracelet is available in brass, gold fill and sterling silver.  
I am glad Heather Straw, the founder of Nashelle, uses recycled 14k gold fill, sterling silver material and natural gemstones to make the jewelry.  Each piece of Nashelle jewelry is carefully handmade and not mass-produced so they take a lot of care and love when making these.
Nashelle also allows us to create custom keepsake necklace and bracelet to our liking. They also have Nash for him, which would make lovely gifts for any occasion.  I found their site easy to navigate by clicking on shopping by category and collections.  These classic, modern, chic, bold, beautiful, clean and detailed designs make it a wonderful gift to give any lady, young or old.  
A few gift giving ideas under $40 from Nashelle
I heart Nashelle's values of ‘paying it forward’, as they are dedicated to extend a helping hand to those in need, in their own community and beyond.  Their intention is with every piece of jewelry they sell, they give back to those in need through food, cloths, medical expenses and by supporting local schools.  They currently support disaster relief, KIDS Center, Family Access Network, Cancer Awareness and Feeding America.  We can purchase Nashelle online or in any of the 400+ high-end boutiques worldwide, and be part of helping those in need. 
Keep in touch with nashelle through their Facebooktwitter and pinterest as they post new designs, promotions and information.

Tilley apparel goes anywhere

Tilley apparel has existed for over 30 years.  Over these years they have evolved because of their committed focus on innovation, fabrics and design.  The team at Tilley are constantly looking for the latest engineered modern fabrications that make durable, versatile, easy to wear and care clothes and accessories that are also trendy and fashionable. 

With Tilley apparel we can travel light with one bag.  My father-in-law is a frequent traveler that sticks to his policy of travelling light and with only one bag; this is something I always hear from him as he encourages us to do the same :)  I agree with him and believe that when travelling we should be comfortable and clothes should be the last thing on the worry list.  Having clothes that we can trust, which will not tear or wear easy is the best way to not worry about clothes :)

Tilley Endurables started in 1980 by Alex Tilley after he developed the original Tilley Hat (T1).  Alex Tilley is a self-employed art consultant and avid sailor who made this T1 hat because he was tired of his sailing hats getting blown off his head, sinking and shrinking.
All the clothing and hats except for the TF2 Fur Felt Fedora hat and socks are made in Canada.  Although this TF2 Fur Felt Fedora hat and socks are made in the US, they follow the specifications of Tilley's standards.  When I browsed through the clothing at Tilley Endurables I liked the quality and collection of the lightweight clothing and the idea of wearing the same clothes in different ways.  These clothes are supposed to be comfortable to wear for travel and for everyday use.  
I found the prices a little on the expensive side, but I guess we pay a little more as an investment for the quality of the products.  Tilley stands behind its quality and guarantee us that all their hats expect the Raffia and clothing such as their Drummer Legends items are guaranteed for life and the socks are guaranteed to be hole free for 3 years.  Since Tilley products are durable and washable, they are environmentally friendly and sustainable.  

Tilley donates discontinued fabrics to NGOs to use for other projects. Every holiday season, Tilley has a tradition of supporting the Sir Edmund Hilary Foundation that is dedicated to help improve the lives of the Sherpa people in Nepal, and they sell the Baby Yeti soft toy for $7 and the Mom and Dad Yetis for $14 each.  
There are lots of unique features in the fabric that Tilley uses in their products, however features vary depending on the clothing and apparel.  Some of the features include fast drying, wrinkle resistant, lightweight, water repellent, washable, colour fastness, UV rated at UPF 50+ which is the maximum rating that offers sun protection etc.  Tilley products are designed by an in-house team that is inspired by travel trends and suggestions from customers i.e. their Intrepid bag with the brown vintage, hand-distressed leather and Italian buckles was based on a WWII bag suggested by a client.  

I liked the spacious layout and creative decor throughout the store as there are photographs, wooden carvings and other unique things from around the world that are interesting to look at.  I like the unique style of the fitting rooms as each room had a name of a country on the outside and inside there was a scenic picture from the country mentioned.  
Although Tilley is mostly known for travel clothing, they are moving from this and making fashionable clothes for everyday wear for all types of body shapes and sizes so Tilley products are appealing to globetrotters and backyard adventures alike.  They are the leading manufacture of high quality hats in Canada and across the globe.  There are seven family owned stores in Canada and more than 2600 retailers in 18 countries sell their hats.

Redesigned Old Navy store at the Toronto Eaton Centre

Women's section
We were invited to check out the newly remodeled Old Navy Store at the Toronto Eaton Centre.  The store was brightly redesigned.  The layout made it easy for us to look and shop for things we want and need :)  
Men's section
I liked how the store was spaciously and neatly divided into women, girls, boys, men and baby wear.  There also had an expanded maternity assortment section.  
Maternity and toddler baby section
I was really attracted to the fashionable collection of costume jewelry at the Old Navy store.

I think this redesign is productive because we can find things easily and shop without waiting to ask for assistance.  Having the products easy to browse is helpful when shopping with young children and especially when we are limited with time.  
Shoes for all different seasons

The fitting rooms and the cashiers are in the center of the store, which is convenient and a good meeting place when shopping with friends and family members :)  Old Navy has "pop in" rooms, which is a thoughtful part of the design as we can quickly try the clothes on our children before buying it and don't have to wait for a fitting room to become available. 
Children's section
They also have an interactive play space for the little ones.  At the event my children spent time in this area colouring, which kept them happy and busy. 
My children were making sure to colour inside the lines for a contest
The new signage in the store is clear and lets us know when there are promotions, values and other things happening at the store.  Old Navy has everything from clothes to accessories for the entire family, which makes it easy for us to shop throughout the year.
