If you’ve been following me for a while, you’d know I’m not blogging for money. Or fame. I just love sharing my life and things I love with like-minded people. I don’t have or want sponsors, and I hate getting spam “XYZ company wants you to blog their products!” emails. But when a reader has something review-worthy, I listen. Especially when it’s for a good cause! So I told Mandy of COURSE I would love to try out and review a product from her new endeavor.
Mandy started Polished & Puzzled to raise funds towards a cause that is close to her, autism. Her products combine two things I love- jewelry and nail polish!
I elected to get some earrings for my review, and received these gorgeous bitties:
They are dark gray with the most beautiful holographic finish. The nail polish color is Jade Magia Negra. Look at how it changes from light to shade (and please ignore my scratched table.)
I found it really hard to capture their true beauty in the shade. It’s the most gorgeous gray color.
I loved the idea of the the cabochon rings that Julep sent out a few months ago, but mine was really cheap and came to me broken. Puzzled & Polished jewelry are the same concept but much better quality. I loved the slight size of these earrings- they’re just enough- and how they were fun and different without being either too flashy or boring. That’s exactly the kind of accessory I look for!
I wore them to a party for B’s work last weekend.
I loved my Puzzled & Polished earrings and am of course following their facebook page avidly. Like the page and check out their great behind-the-scenes pictures, gorgeous product reveals, and giveaway/sale alerts! Right now for February, buy 1 item for $7 or 2 items for $11! This is a savings of $1 for 1 item or $5 for 2 items!
You can also help contribute to Mandy’s mission to raise funds for their Walk Now for Autism Speaks team in other ways. Do you have nail polish you could donate? Email them and you can get info on how to send them nail polish- maybe something that isn’t your style but would make a great piece of jewelry?
Happy Monday, everyone!
