Hope you are all having a fabulous day!
Life has been pretty hectic over the past few days so I havent had a chance to blog for a while and I also have everyones latest posts to catch up on which i am looking forward to doing.
As some of you may already have seen I have a jewellery business called Gemstars Jewels which has a fanpage on facebook. On Monday I launched my first ever giveaway of a gorgeous pair of Swarovski crystal and pearl earrings (sterling silver earwires). To win a pair in a choice of 3 colours simply refer a friend to my fanpage, and ask them to add a comment under the giveaway post once they have 'liked'. There is pics of the earrings on the facebook page. If you win the giveaway i simply need to know your choice of colour and the address to send them to.
This giveaway is currently running until Sunday but will possibly be extended.
Happy blogging everyone and good luck with the giveaway!!!

Today on facebook I was introduced to something really great that i just had to share with you all.
Its called link love and it is spreading throughout facebook like a mexican wave.
If, like me you are keen to meet and network with like minded people then you will love this concept. In a nutshell everyone fans eachothers pages so its a great way to support fellow crafters, artists and small businesses.By 'likeing' peoples pages and posting your links on their discussion boards they then 'like' you back and do the same on your boards. This then introduces us to other pages and so it goes on. For me its not just about growing my fan base though as it is also a fantastic way of connecting with like-minded people. In the few short hours since I was shown this system I have discovered some stunning shops and a treasure chest of potential gifts for friends and family.
It is also lovely to see so much love between strangers. Everyone is complimentary of each other and keen to promote each other which is great to see. IAt first it is quite overwhelming when you see all the lists of links to explore but it is also a ton of fun and I am loving every minute of it.
Here is a link to a fabulous inspirational blog all about link lovehttp://runwaycrochet.blogspot.com/2010/01/spirit-of-link-love.html

I finally made it here, having read the inspirational blog of make up artist kandee johnson for many months now I decided it was time to have my own and its something I should have done a long time ago. I hope that over the coming months I too can inspire and entertain the way that kandee has for me.
These past few months have brought about drastic changes in my life and I have found myself adjusting to life without one of my sisters which has been tough but it has made me stronger, tougher and more motivated than ever to make my life the way I want it to be.
In my time of need my best friend sat me down and introduced me to The Secret. Put simply this is the Law Of Attraction and it has had a huge impact on my outlook and the way I am living my life. I now start every day with a smile and focus all my thoughts and energy into the things i want. It is making me take risks I didnt think I had the courage to make such as leaving a steady job to start a business and train as a beauty therapist but I am 100% sure it is the right thing to do and I am finally following my gut instincts. As Kandee Johnson once said in her blog fear is simply:
F....False E....Evidence A....Appearing R....Real
Dont let your fears stop you from chasing your dreams
So with a head buzzing with ideas I am going for it. All the things I have dreamed of doing I am now gonna make a reality. And I truely believe that anyone can do whatever tthey dream of...yes that includes you!!!
Only limitation I am finding at the moment is that there are not enough hours in the day to do all the things I wanna do...but I wont let that stop me lol!
I hope you all have a happy and healthy day!!! Live life to the full...Lifes too short to have regrets
