Dakota’s Per­son­al­ized Gifts

Dakota’s Per­son­al­ized Gifts started about 5 years ago with the Anniver­sary Rose mak­ing roses for the tra­di­tional anniver­sary (i.e. 1st year paper, 2nd year cot­ton, 5th year wood etc). Then, they expanded into per­son­al­ized anniver­sary gifts, and also opened a sec­ond web­site called The Anniver­sary Rose! Both offer gor­geous Hand painted acces­sories includ­ing banks, jew­elry hold­ers, brush and comb sets, wal­lets and totes, duf­fle bags and back­packs, and sta­tionery — just to name a few!!

It all began back when they started get­ting many requests for per­son­al­ized Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Christ­mas gifts. That’s when they came up with Dakota’s Per­son­al­ized Gifts. They con­tinue to expand with new prod­ucts and updated equip­ment all the time which allows them to pro­duce most of the items and per­son­al­ize in house. They have every­thing on both of these phe­nom­e­nal sites!

Gifts range from pic­ture frames and photo albums, to orna­ments, t-shirts and baby creep­ers and rompers, and gifts for the home.

You can find items rang­ing from gifts for birth­days, wed­ding gifts, kitchen & bath, go-green can­vas tote bags, baby gifts, golf gifts and so much more! All of these gifts can be per­son­al­ized for all spe­cial occa­sions and hol­i­days. Are you in search of  brides­maid gifts, Christ­mas gifts, or a spe­cial Mother’s Day gift? Dakota’s Per­son­al­ized Gifts is defi­nately your one-stop shop!!

One of the things I really liked is that all of the gifts can be per­son­al­ized to make it extra spe­cial! They offer super fast per­son­al­iza­tion — and from per­sonal expe­ri­ence — their deliv­ery time as well as cus­tomer ser­vice skills are beyond outstanding!!

Dakota Gifts pack­ages using recy­cled paper, biodegrad­able peanuts and they ship USPS as often as they can because USPS already goes to every address every­day, so why make UPS or oth­er­wise waste all of that fuel? This is how they are try­ing to save the world, one gift at at time!

“We started in a spare bed­room about 5 years ago more as a part time hobby than a busi­ness with The Anniver­sary Rose mak­ing roses for the tra­di­tional anniver­sary gifts (i.e. 1st year paper, 2nd year cot­ton, 5th year wood etc) cut­ting rose petals by hand with scis­sors.  It quickly grew from a part time hobby to a full time busi­ness, adding help and equip­ment to keep up. Then, we started expand­ing into per­son­al­ized anniver­sary gifts.  We started get­ting many requests from our cus­tomers for per­son­al­ized wed­ding, Mother’s & Father’s Day and Christ­mas gifts etc.  That’s when we started Dakota’s Per­son­al­ized Gifts. Soon the busi­ness took over a sec­ond bed­room and the garage, the fol­low­ing year it occu­py­ing two bed­rooms, the garage & a full base­ment. With no room left to expand we were forced to move into a com­mer­cial loca­tion in 2009.  We con­tinue to expand with new prod­ucts and updated equip­ment all the time which allows us to pro­duce most of the per­son­al­ized items in house.”

I chose a really gor­geous clock to review, (Friends For­ever Keep­sake Heart Clock) and requested that they add the name ‘Becky’, for my best friend. It looked really beau­ti­ful in the pic­ture on the web­site, but after it was per­son­al­ized and deliv­ered to me, I can assure you that the pic­tures do not actu­ally do these gifts jus­tice! I was beyond impressed with it, and the com­pli­ments on it are end­less!! I will defi­nately be order­ing a lot more of these won­der­ful per­son­al­ized gifts from Dakota’s Per­son­al­ized Gifts as I am now sold on this great company!!

Kellogg’s All Bran — Throw Fibre into your Diet the Yummy Way!

Saturday, September 25th, 2010

 

The main func­tion of fibre is to keep the diges­tive sys­tem healthy and func­tion­ing prop­erly. Fibre aids and speeds up the excre­tion of waste and tox­ins from the body, pre­vent­ing them from sit­ting in the intes­tine or bowel for too long, which could cause a build-up and lead to sev­eral diseases.

Fibre passes through the body vir­tu­ally unchanged along with other digested food until it arrives at the large intes­tine. What hap­pens next depends on which type of fibre is present.

 
In the case of insol­u­ble fibre, it pro­motes the growth of a cer­tain friendly bac­te­ria that fer­ments and makes the waste mate­r­ial soft and bulky, which in turn helps it to pass through the intestines quicker to the bowel and out of the body.

Insol­u­ble fibre pre­vents con­sti­pa­tion, which con­sists of small, hard and dry fae­ces that are hard to pass, by adding bulk and liq­uid to aid move­ment, and pro­mote reg­u­lar bowel move­ments. A larger and softer stool is able to pass through the intestines and bowel more eas­ily and flu­idly and is eas­ier to evacuate.

As waste mate­r­ial passes through the body quickly and does not stay in the intestines or bowel for very long, tox­ins are not able to build up and accu­mu­late. This is impor­tant in the pre­ven­tion of dis­tress­ing dis­eases such as bowel can­cer or other can­cers, con­sti­pa­tion, irri­ta­ble bowel syn­drome, haem­or­rhoids and diver­ti­c­uli­tis. 
 

There are a whack of recipes out there using a secret ingre­di­ent — Kellogg’s All Bran!

Be sure to visit this web­site for a whack of tasty healthy ingre­di­ents using Kellogg’s All Bran!

CoolCanucks Blog Contest – Fantasy Jewelry Box Review & Giveaway!!CLOSED

Sunday, September 19th, 2010

One word for this gor­geous jew­elry! STUNNING!!

I recently did a review of Fan­tasy Jew­elry Box not too long ago, and found their jew­elry to be sim­ply amaz­ing! With low, extremely unbeat­able prices, one should not choose any­where else for their amaz­ing jew­elry! Read my other review of this fan­tas­tic jew­elry here!

brace

I have never in my life seen such an exten­sive array of jew­elry! Choose from men’s & women’s col­lec­tions, all neatly cat­e­go­rized on the left to make shop­ping at Fan­tasy Jew­elry Box a com­plete snap!

cross

“FantasyJewelryBox.com is one of the lead­ing online celebrity and designer inspired imi­taion cz ster­ling sil­ver jew­elry retail­ers. Although cz cubic zir­co­nia ster­ling sil­ver replica jew­elry is our spe­cialty, we are also a lead­ing online ster­ling sil­ver cz jew­elry retailer for replica celebrity rings, fake engage­ment rings and faux wed­ding sets.

Our ster­ling sil­ver cubic zir­co­nia cz jew­elry col­lec­tions pri­mar­ily con­sists of high end gen­uine .925 Ster­ling Sil­ver with high-quality cubic zir­co­nia stones. We also proudly carry gold jew­elry col­lec­tions as well as fash­ion jew­elry and cos­tume jew­elry for our more budget-friendly shop­pers. Our cubic zir­co­nia jew­elry prices gen­er­ally range from $10.00 to $500.00 so it is easy to see why our afford­able ster­ling sil­ver jew­elry col­lec­tions are so pop­u­lar! Whether you are a finan­cially strug­gling col­lege stu­dent or a suc­cess­ful, wealthy woman who enjoys a good deal, our col­lec­tions are per­fect for you!

Although we spe­cial­ize in women’s cubic zir­co­nia cz jew­elry, our grow­ing men’s stain­less steel and tita­nium col­lec­tion is quite pop­u­lar! We believe this is due to our com­pet­i­tive, sub­stan­tially lower prices that is rare in today’s jew­elry mar­ket for men. Of course, that state­ment can be said for all the ster­ling sil­ver jew­elry within our col­lec­tions! Our famous slo­gan says it all: “FantasyJewelryBox.com is Afford­able Jew­elry for Expen­sive Tastes!”

Shop Fan­tasy Jew­elry Box with com­plete con­fi­dence! We proudly stand behind our ster­ling sil­ver cubic zir­co­nia cz jew­elry with our risk-free guar­an­tee to assure that you are a happy, life­long customer! “

I was sent to review, a gor­geous Isabella’s Ster­ling Sil­ver CZ Wed­ding Ring Set, and I love it so much!! The com­pli­ments received when wear­ing this daz­zling expen­sive look­ing ring were astonishing!!
