SPROUT makes eco-friendly watches for men and women that I think are very unique and affordable. Prices start at $30 and go on up to $80. There are different styles and colors to choose from including tyvek, corn resin bracelets, organic cotton and fish leather. My interest immediately went to the FISH LEATHER style because the dial face is fairly plain and medium in size, giving all of the attention to the fish leather which is soft on top and durable on the bottom and the color of the leather is a tone that is neutral making it a daytime piece that would compliment a casual outfit very nicely. These retail for $65 at SPROUT.COM
This gift idea is something that would be appreciated by most people because it’s something that is useful for everyday living at home. THE WALTON COMPANY makes these eco-friendly cork coasters with a fun design on the front and an amusing story on the back. You can choose one or create sets of 2, 4, 6 or more from a variety of themes. I’m a lover of the beach and most things that remind me of it. My home is no exception. I have a lot of beachy/coastal themed decor. The images I’ve included come from the Coast to Coast theme. Each coaster retails for $5.98
Recently I had the privilege of attending a launch party for a new magazine. I was very pleased when I received a VIP bag full of goodies from companies that were featured in the first issue of the magazine. One of the goodies came from MALIE ORGANICS, a company that I’ve written about previously here at Island Style Weekly. You can click this LINK for that write up. The item I received was the SOY CANDLE TIN in the ORCHID aroma. I love it. It’s a small tin but I’ve been burning it every time I’m at home since I’ve received it and I still have a lot of wax left for hours and hours of burn time. The aroma is so nice. I hate anything too florally and powerful. The orchid aroma has a delicate, sweet, floral scent that lingers through each room giving the house a kiss of aloha. I highly recommend this product for your home.
I’m a big fan of the Mac mineralize eye shadow because of its sheer and lightweight powder formula. My all time favorite is the quartz fusion that came out a while ago with the perfect amount of glitter in it making it wearable both day and night. I’m also a big fan of liner sealer. I’ve found that liner sealers will sometimes seal your eye shadow color making it useless for future use. That’s not the case with the Mac mineralize eye shadow. I can use it as an eye shadow and as an eyeliner with my liner sealer and the pods do not freeze up or change it’s mineralized formula. These are available in 6 colors. The color shown is in Thunder and Rain. For more information go to MACYS.COM
This glittery jelly shoe from MELISSA+CAMPANA is super cute and light weight making it a great casual shoe to go along with a casual ensemble for the day and the glittery color makes your look festive and fun for the holiday season.

The last image is in powder pink now on sale for $48.95 You can click on the link under each color for more information.
My daughter has a large collection of nail polish colors. To add to her collection, she has been asking me for the new MAGNETIC POLISH made by NAILS INC. After seeing it in one of my fashion magazines, I decided to look into it a little more. It is like nothing I’ve seen before in the nail polish world. I’ve included the short video that I viewed earlier provided by Sephora that demonstrates how to apply this product. For product details go to SEPHORA.COM
A girl living in Hawaii can never have too many shorts even if it’s almost the end of the fall season. The weather today was 77 degrees. Most of our days will be nice and warm even during the winter season so I’m always on the lookout for clothes that will keep me cool. My new shorts from VOLCOM came in today and they are exactly what I wanted. The shorts are made from 98% cotton and 98% elastane but the material is very soft and buttery almost like velvet. I have other shorts from Volcom and the high quality and low price point is hard to beat. When searching the web and stores for shorts, jeans, skirts and other bottoms, I always check to see whats new at Volcom. This style is called FRICKIN 2 1/2″ SHORT and the style number is B0911213 and sells for $39.50

I went to department store recently to sample some of the newest scents for women and I was very impressed with the newest scent from JUSTIN BIEBER called SOMEDAY BY JUSTIN BIEBER. I usually like anything with a hint of vanilla and this scent has that mixed with berries and a little bit of musk. The scent starts off as a fruity and creamy scent and as it wears off during the day, the notes of vanilla and musk linger on your skin. Net profits from sales are donated to charity making this an extra special treat for yourself or a gift for someone else. Use this LINK and add you heart to Justin Bieber’s Hearts Across the Web.

During the year, I organize the closets in my home several times. Prior to Christmas, I always minimize as much as possible to get everyones closets ready for new clothes, fashion accessories and any other item they may receive as gifts from family and friends. Using closet organizers help me a lot to maximize the space of each closet especially the small ones. I found 2 closet organizers from KOHLS for organizing jewelry and handbags. The jewelry organizer could also be used for organizing hair pins and clips. Both can be hung in the closet with it’s single hook that goes easily over any closet rod.
