I’ve always told my husband that I like gifts that come in small boxes…the smaller the box the better.
Have you met Irina Stasevsky? Our very own Fabulously40.com member?
Several months ago I visited Irina’s site and saw those earrings.
Once I did, I knew I just had to have them. They soon became my favorite.
I love unique, delicate jewelry.I love casual pieces that I can wear everyday or to an evening affair.
My earrings are not only beautiful, but they are very light. While I get tons of compliments I can’t even feel that I’m wearing them.
Irina only uses semi-precious stones. Her work is simple, yet fun and makes you feel confident and sexy.
Look at this beautiful flower. It’s simplicity makes a statement.
With exceptional attention to detail, each piece is distinctively crafted.
Using only top of the line semiprecious gems, Swarovski crystals and a dazzling array of stones, each piece is styllish in it’s own way, elegant and timeless.
Priced so reasonably that even in our tough economy every woman should own a piece.
Visit her site to pick your favoritepiece.

Denim has taken a huge leap into the world of fashion over the past couple of decades. With the advent of “designer” denim brands and the opening of the high fashion world to denim jeans (and everything else), it’s no surprise that a good pair of dark wash pricey (looking) jeans are seen everywhere from your daughter’s wardrobe to Fashion Week in Paris.
However, that skit is a few years old and more behind the times than ever. Fairly new designer denim brand called, “Not Your Daughters Jeans” is trying to break the mold for women over 30 and mothers alike. No more pants pulled up to the armpits, no more hiding bumps and unflattering bulges with even less flattering pants.
Not Your Daughters Jeans has claimed the niche market of women who have generally opted for high-waist cuts, that while certainly are unflattering, are the lesser of the two evils when option number two is the dreaded muffin-top from low-cut jeans. But for women who accept neither option, NYDJ is the perfect alternative.
The brand prides itself on making fashionable clothing (that’s right, not just jeans) for women who can’t afford to spend enough time in the gym for it to be considered part-time work, and for women who have children and have found their bodies just don’t go back into quite their pre-baby shape.
Not Your Daughters Jeans prides itself on providing low-rise jeans that eliminate saggy legs and unflattering rears for women who still want some snugness in the right areas without running the risk of muffin-ing over their belt loops. The lycra/cotton blend promises to give just enough fit without too much squeeze that will definitely take the “mom” out of jeans of mothers cross-country.
While on the pricier side (average $80-$100) and sold at higher end department stores, these jeans keep their shape remarkably well and are undoubtedly worth the extra cost since you won’t replace a pair for years. If the price is still to steep, with some careful hunting of bargain stores like Marshall’s and Loehmann’s, you should be able to get a pair at a discount and enjoy all glorious perks of the cost.
Here is a link where you can buy one for yourself that is a skinny leg, or find another style to fit your body.

When we ladies think of menopause, the first thing that probably comes to mind are hot flashes: they strike without warning, can lead to embarrassing situations but perhaps worst of all, cost us valuable sleep time.
Waking up in the middle of the night (sometimes multiple times) and not only having to deal with the fiery surge in temperature but to then have to change out of our now damp pajamas before getting back to counting sheep. It’s all a nightmare and it’s an inevitable part of battling the hormone fluxes.
It’s not just women entering menopause who are susceptible to hot flashes, either. Many pregnant women or women fighting cancer also experience temperature spikes that drain them of energy from lost sleep.
While the best cure for the flashes themselves is time and a remote-control fan, now there’s a pajama line specially designed for managing the night sweat terrors and eliminate the otherwise mandatory pj change.
Eaden sleepwear was designed by Wendy Eade, who discovered her nights were improved dramatically by wearing a sports t-shirt made with a special fiber, Dri-release with Freshguard. The fiber works to remove moisture from your body that is produced by vigorous exercise. The same thinking can be applied to menopause, pregnancy and other hormone-blasting stages of life.
Eaden sleepwear uses the same Dri-release material but now combined with attractive women’s sleepwear patterns and design. In addition to being comfortable and chic, the line is available in a wide variety of sizes, including plus sizes to fit every body shape and size.
Testimonials support the Eaden Sleepwear guarantee: that you can get a sounder night’s sleep without having to make one (or more) clothing changes in the middle of the night due to hot flashes, whatever the source. Some of the women writing in don’t even suffer from heat terrors, though; one thankful customer is grateful to the product line for offering her a sleepwear solution to sensitive skin that otherwise gets irritated quite easily.
The feeling of getting a full night’s sleep is priceless and shouldn’t be a pricey commodity. Eaden Sleepwear is reasonably priced for its range of utility and eliminating the need to get out of bed to get out of the heat.
