5 Tips for finding the best jewelry on a budget

Acquiring a new piece of jewelry is exciting! It always has a divine feeling to it. It can be stressful
sometimes, especially if don’t know what exactly to look out for. Before you go out shopping, be
sure to read these 5 tips that will make your shopping experience stress free. We would want you to
come home happy and relaxed, with a valued keepsake you’ll never want to lose.

  1. The Quality Stamp
This will indicate how fine the metal is that is used. It also highlights its quality. For a piece made in
Europe, the quality stamp also referred to as a hallmark, shows the fineness in the type of metal and
the country where it was manufactured. Jewelry made in the US has a trademark accompanying the
quality stamp. It is usually not conspicuous and will be found in the shank of a ring for example.

  1. The Warranty and return Policy Information.
Be sure to buy from a store with a money-back return policy. It usually takes from two weeks to a
month for you to get a full refund. Confirm that the warranty is valid, especially if you are buying a
highly priced piece. If this is not possible, buy from a retailer or store that will allow you to be
refunded should you change your mind. After all, it is better to be safe than sorry.

  1. The Scratch Test
Did you know that some inexpensive jewelry can look exactly like silver or gold, only to have paint
applied over some inexpensive metal? Be sure to gently scratch over the piece you want to buy, just
to be sure it won’t peel or scratch. While at it, ensure that the metal is not scratched and the gems
are securely mounted in their frame. If possible, ask to scrutinize the piece through the jeweler’s

  1. Compare Prices
Chances are that the jewelry you intend to buy is available in some other store or website cannot be
nil. Do not stick to one store if you intend to save a few coins. If you are in Ohio, this list of best
jewelry stores in Dayton by shopedc.com makes your life easier. Compare prices on the various
stores til you find one that sells at an amount you are comfortable to part with.

  1. Ask for the Lab Report
This is important, especially if you are buying a piece with significant gemstones. Ask for a report
from an independent lab such as the Gemological Institute of America, which grades the stone
based on its value. Exercise caution when shopping in stores offering more than 50 percent
discounts. You might find that this discounted price is actually an average retail price in another
store. It is much safer to be referred by friends and family to a trusted retailer.

Still want to look good without parting with an arm and a leg? Consider purchasing from estate sales.
If you just want to try out a piece for a short while, you could consider a rental subscription service.

Do not purchase a precious jewel only for you to lock it away in your closet til that “special” occasion.
Try it out once in a while, look good and feel good! That’s why you bought it anyway.

5 tips to dressing your son up as a superhero

Kids, especially boys, adore superheroes and can watch superhero movies all day if granted the
chance. Your child would be ecstatic if you took home a real life hero character for their birthday
party. That would be amazing, right? Before you even contemplate on how much it could cost you to
hire an actor, let's remind you that you'll not be hiring anyone.

Let the kid take up the role of the superhero. Pondering how to pull it off? Here are top five tips for
dressing your son up as a superhero.

1. Buy the superhero costume from a reputable store

It goes without saying that to act like a superhero you need to adorn like one. Figure out your child's
favourite character and buy the appropriate costume from the I Am Superhero store. Superhero
costumes are quite affordable and come in varying shades and colours.

2. Paint your son's face with images of his favourite superhero

It's not feasible for your kid to don face paint every so often, but once in a while take him for a face
painting session to complete his look.

Boys are exceptionally competitive, and your son will be keen on having the upper hand on his
friends. Ensure the face painting job makes it hard for the other kids to tell whether it's your son or a
miniature version of the superhero form a distance.

The aspect of mystery will no doubt make your kid's weekend exciting and memorable.

3. Purchase a costume that fits his body type

Your kid knows the body types of superheroes. For example, your son knows Superman is lean and
well-built. Supposing that you wish to buy the Superman costume and your son is on the plus side,
buy him an outfit made of compression material to aid in giving him the real superman look.

The close resemblance will captivate your son as they'd have conjured an image quite similar to
what he sees on TV.

4.  Seek professional help

To find high-quality superhero costume, seek the advice of an expert. Why you may ask. The
internet is littered with numerous costume experts, but none of whom can match the aptness and
experience of I Am Superhero. Get in touch with them to obtain the best advice possible on
costumes rather than purchase generic costumes that would require replacing every so often.

Cheap is expensive, goes the saying.

5. Seek a kid's help  

Perhaps you've no experience on superhero costumes, but you wish to make an impression on your
son; the solution is simple; ask one of your kid friends to help you out. No matter what you think you
know, kids tend to have better ideas than us in matters superhero.

Seek your kid friend's advice, and you'll most likely get everything right.

5 Tips to creating a custom t-shirt

Creating a custom t-shirt is a great concept and has been one of the most popular outlets for
illustrators, graphic designers, or anyone in the art industry. Having the freedom to create your own
design has been an important part of business nowadays since people like to have options. People
want to be able to put a personal touch on their shirts by doing their own design. However, as
exciting as it sounds, it also needs a careful process in order to have the perfect custom t-shirt.

Here are five tips for creating a custom t-shirt.

1. Keep your design simple.

While people have different preferences with regards to style and design, it could be a good choice
to keep things simple. While it is true that detail is king, you may find yourself struggling to finish a
design if it is far too complicated. Aim to have the simplest designs that can already relay the
message that you want. Also, think of your brand and your market. What are you designing the t-
shirt for in the first place? The good thing about now is that you can find online stores like
TeeJunction where you can easily create your own design and have it printed.

2. Make use of design sites.

If you are worried that you might not be able to design a t-shirt well if you don’t know how to create
digital images on Photoshop or Illustrator, you can definitely make use of free images on design sites
like Canva or PicMonkey. You can also create your own designs by using their user-friendly tools
that will allow you to create different kinds of image files.

3. Experiment with colors.

Depending on your preferences, you can use bold colors or not. This will also depend on the color of
the t-shirt of your choice. If you want to go for bright-colored shirts like bright orange or neon green,
pair it with a font color that is also bold, but in opposite hue of your shirt. If bold colors are not for
you, you can also experiment with black texts on white t-shirts. It’s a classic look that will go with
nearly everything in your wardrobe.

4. Make sure that the design looks good in any size.

After creating the design, oftentimes, people forget to check if it looks good in the actual printed shirt.
In order to check this, check the first the actual size that you want and make the design using those
sizes. If your design has texts, you have to convert it to outlines first before you print it.

5. Make sure to keep an editable copy of your design.

If in case something needs adjustment on the final printing, it is always safe to have a copy of your
design that can be edited. You want to be able to make some adjustment without having to start all
over again and recreate your design. Sometimes, issues arise with the printer, so you want to be
able to have a back-up so you won’t have to start from scratch.

Rosegal Makeup Organizer and Led Mirror Review

Hello my lovelies and welcome to my new post! Today we are checking out together some new makeup related items that I ordered from online store Rosegal lately. We are talking about two items that made my life so much easier lately. You should also check out Rosegal Valentines Day 2018. Scroll down to read more!

First item I ordered from Rosegal is this gorgeous led mirror. It came in a secure box and all the pieces were packed so they couldn't get damaged during shipping. I assembled it myself (and it was easy actually) and it takes 4 additional batteries to make it work. The mirror itself is very sizable and contains a smaller mirror that can be added to it so you can get a 5x larger reflection. 

The light goes on with a switch on the back and touch to the mirror. You can also intensify the light or dim it depending on your need. Light is very white and can be used as light for making selfies as well! You can find this mirror here.

Second item I got from Rosegal is this gorgeous makeup organizer. It has two pieces to it and the upper part can be separated from the two drawers below. On the upper part there is a larger space for powders and bigger products, 6 slots for lipsticks or similar products and 2 wider slots in the back for mascaras and similar products. You can find it here and more makeup organizers here.

Both product arrived to my doorstep within 3 weeks from ordering and were packed in a great way so they weren't damaged. Also the quality of the products is really good, plastic is hard and shiny, mirror lights are really good and I can really recommend these two products to you.

Have you ever ordered from Rosegal my lovelies? Let me know what you think!

Lots of love,
