So it’s not just a shot in the dark to say we’ve found your new must-have look –bullet and porcupine quill jewelry by Panacea.

Two Weeks Only - Passing the Bucks

Lei Chic To score that new dress, you had to wait until someone got married. You wrangled that new pair of boots by pretending to fall out of your shoes at a nightclub. And those “couldn’t pass up” pair of jeans? It’s posing as junk in your trunk, hidden from your guy until you think he won’t notice they’re new.

There are unlimited things you want to buy but you’re running out of excuses to stop by your favorite shops.

Fortunately, we have just what you need for a... Read more »

Two Days Only - Bling It On

Lei ChicWorking the chain gang never sounded like a good idea.

It wasn’t the labor that scares you (you hear breaking up boulders is great cardio) or the required drab prison blues (you can rock any outfit with the right accessories). What really bothers you, besides the whole felony thing, are the clunky steel handcuffs that even Kate, Farrah, and Jaclyn couldn’t make stylish.

Great jewelry is your trademark and you’re ready to... Read more »

And pretty much every day you’re short on dough. So you’re always searching for a cheap way to sweeten the meal.

Take a bake with a business that’s more than hit or miss – it’s hit or Bliss.

Bliss Bakery is the work of Kathy Masunaga who comes from a long... Read more »
