Does a Diamond Auction sound fun to you? Thought so!


Today I was introduced to Gemporia, and I lost hours of my day browsing the site. BEAUTIFUL pieces, seriously. My first crush was on this amazing Swiss Blue Topaz Ring and I don't even think I need to explain why. It's gorgeous and the price is right at under $20.

The site is really easy to navigate. You know how much I love a clean crisp website! I like that the sorts are very customizable, and that browsing the jewelry I found something for every budget. I really loved several of the bangles, I'm very into bracelet stacking these days and they have some fun ones that I intend on ordering for myself very soon. The jingle jangle of a stacked bracelet set always puts a smile on my face.


Something else unique about Gemporia is that they actually have a live auction TV station called Rocks TV you can check out the live auctions right on Gemporia.com. I was watching a bit of it this morning and got really hooked on the necklace that was up for auction. Gemporia has a special diamond event coming up that they don't want anyone to miss out on!
This diamond auction on RocksTV is scheduled to air at 9pm EST - prime time - and you're probably going to want the two products they are auctioning. Take a look at these sparkly beauties.



Diamond Sterling Silver Earrings 0.11cts  - RRP $626
These are gorgeous. I love the fine cuts and the details. Plus they look super sparkly. I can't wait to see them live on the show! You know I'm a sucker for some sparkles. Diamonds never disappoint. I also like the width of these. I often stay away from smaller earrings, because honestly, if no one is going to see them under my hair, what's the point? These would make a statement, I'm certain.

Next up is really one that I'm excited for. The ring matches the earrings actually and is just perfect. I want it!


Check out the detail. Isn't it beautiful? I need more rings.







This one might find it's way into my ring collection. Again, it looks like it would be fantastically sparkly. Certainly another piece that makes a statement and who doesn't want diamonds?

Well I hope you'll check out the diamond auction on RocksTV and if you're feeling generous feel free to buy one for you, and then one for me!

Just a quick tip, make sure to register early for the site so that you're logged in and all set to bid. You can find the Log in/Register tab on the top right hand side of the website. 




Diamond Auction is scheduled for 9PM Saturday, March 28 and can be veiwed right on the Gemporia Live Auction tab.

Ozeri Rev Digital Bathroom Scale with Electro-Mechanical Weight Dial Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

As far as scales go, we all know it's a battle to get on one. I mean, we live in a society where people base the value of their person-hood on what that number says. That's not me. I'm not skinny and I'm alright with it, and as far as getting a clear an accurate reading from a scale this Ozeri digital bathroom scale gets the job done!

I love it. Really I do. The screen is clear, the design is nice and it's really accurate. It does all of the things a scale is supposed to do.

Don't use it after a shower and be a little careful if someone has taken a hot shower in the bathroom before you step on. It can be a bit slippery when condensation builds up. That being said everything about this scale is great.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Ageless Derma Natural Camoufleur Concealer Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

  I don't even know where to start with this product. It's so magnificent! I have the Ageless Derma Natural Camoufleur Concealer in Ivory and it's essentially banished my dark circles. I've used it every day since I've received it and the compliments roll in.

I've always had dark circles and to top them off I'm an insomniac. Which means they get REALLY dark and age me like no one's business.



Left no camofleur right with.
As you can see in this image, my eyes look puffy and dark. This is sans make up and sans moisturizer. I have the whole 'I'm really sleepy and maybe a little old' look going on. It's not attractive. I know it's not.

I just turned 30 and I feel like this is not the face i should have. Eff those dark circles! Honestly the only thing I conceal on my face are those.

What I've found with Ageless Derma's Natural Camoufleur Concealer is that it hides not only the color, but it helps me hide the puffiness as well. It's like magic and it only takes a tiny bit on the tip of my finger to get results. PERFECTION! I hate caking make-up on. I don't want to look artificial I want to look natural and youthful. I get that effect with this. I'm addicted, there's no turning back.

See below for a side by side comparison. I used natural lighting and tried to get an identical angle. I wanted you to see the actual difference. It's pretty astonishing.

Before and After
 Like a magic trick or a really crafty photo shop, my eyes seem brighter and more clear and the dark circles are diminished.

Majestical Jewelry - Leaf Cluster Stunner Earrings Review

Majestical Jewelry sent me these lovely Leaf Cluster Stunner Earrings to review here on I'm Not Skinny. 

They came packaged in a beautiful dark blue box with a silky bag and a bit of bubble wrap to keep things together. The packaging is perfect for gift giving!

The Leaf Cluster Stunner Earrings hang at the perfect length for me, falling just short of my shoulder as you can see in the photo.

I'm a fan of dangle earrings, though it's seldom that I wear my hair up, I mean I've got 30 inches of it...why hide all of that fabulous amirite? However, when I do these have been in my regular rotation. They are light weight so no pulling on your earlobe - important for me. They also chime just a bit which I tend to like.

The Leaf Cluster Stunner Earrings are priced at only $8.50! A steal! 






Example of bracelet stacking TREND

Don't forget to browse the entire Majestical Jewelry site, I found a lot of jewelry I really like. Especially their silver jewelry. The cuffs and bangles are to die for! I've been all over bracelets and bangles this year because stacking them is a trend, I'm sure if you following me on Instagram you've seen me go at it. I would love to play dress up with some of the bangles and cuffs they have for sale. 

Like this Silver Peridot Bangle stacked with the Knotted Loop Cuff and Old Times Cuff which would look just perfect for almost any occasion. Even for no occasion at all, I tend to just dress up for no reason, and I really like incorporating jewelry trends. 

There you have it! 

Disclosure: I received the Leaf Cluster Stunner earrings for free from Majestical Jewelry to review. However all words and images are my own!

March 2014 Splendies Review.

Take a peek at these beautiful panties from Splendies! I got my March Splendies in the mail and I'm really really really in love with them.

Here's what my March 2014 Splendies consisted of:
Youmita - these floral panties are my favorite so far! I absolutely love them. The pattern is beautiful and I'm pretty sad that I don't have it on a dress. They are very comfortable as well.

Vision Intimates - A comfortable and simple red cotton thong with a lace waist band. They wear pretty similar to Victoria's Secret panties of the same style. Comfortable and practical. Take note that there is an option to opt out of receiving thongs, but thongs are great...so I don't know why you would. 

Bijou Intimates - Love these! They are 90% polyamide and 10% spandex and wear so very well. The way they form to my booty....ohh looks good. I'm sure the fella isn't going to be disappointed and they are comfortable to boot! 

If you haven't yet signed up for Splendies, you should. I love it, I pay for this subscription each month and it's so worth it. I never spend money on panties, but I need them often so this is a fun way to keep my panty drawer stocked.
