I know I have been radio silent for a few months but I am back! Since posting last, I have graduated college, moved down to NYC, and tirelessly applied to jobs! It has been a big adjustment and one of the most stressful periods of my life but I am finally starting to get back to my normalized routine. I have a few products that have been in a box since I started packing for the move out of my college dorm until now that I am excited to begin reviewing again, so be sure to follow my blog (you can follow via WordPress or by filling out the email form in the right banner of my website) so that you are notified when I post a new review! You don’t want to miss out on all that I have coming for you.
The first of the things that I have to share with you is this GORGEOUS mermaid wine glass from ReiBug Styles:
The woman behind this Etsy shop is absolutely amazing to work with! She makes such beautiful and thoughtful items that are great for gift giving or treating yourself! She offered me any color combination for the mermaid glass that I wanted but I fell in love with the one that she had listed so I chose the purple, blue and green rainbow mermaid glass. She also offers a few sayings that can be added to the glass and was completely open to my idea of adding one that she didn’t offer. I chose the quote, “There are plenty of fish in the sea, but I’m a mermaid!” because I love quotes that remind us that we are all unique and beautiful and thought it was a cute inspirational quote.
The thing I love most about this shop is the story behind it. The owner is a Stay at Home mother of 2 children, which she home schools. This already is an amazing thing in itself. Those two children are blessed to have such a dedicated mom! On top of that, she makes her products in her spare time when she is not teaching or taking care of her kids. She also tests all of her products in her own home to ensure their durability.
What is even better is that her products are up-cycled glasses from thrift shops or garage sales, which she sanitizes and gives new life to. I love the environmental consciousness of her shop in addition to the fact that she also uses recycled materials to package her products. The glass that she sent me was wrapped with an egg carton to keep it from shattering along with newspaper and wrapping paper scraps. This trend runs all the way down to her business cards, which are made using recycled cereal boxes!
I thought that this was so unique and creative! I think it is great that she uses these household materials to package because once you open your package, you either discard the packaging or try to reuse it anyway. I really like how much time she has put into developing such a great Etsy shop. She also believes in her products so highly that she offers a lifetime satisfaction guarantee and will replace an item if it doesn’t live up to your expectations FREE OF CHARGE! Not many companies would do the same, and she has only had to replace an item once, which says a lot about the quality of her products.
If you would like to check out her products, she has extended a special coupon code “VIPineapple” for you all to use for 20% off your purchase of $15+. What a great deal! (Expires on January 1, 2018).
