Some thoughts on the Olympics.

Some random thoughts on the Olympics...

The Olympic rings becoming fireworks in the opening ceremonies was AWESOME!

The teenage romance't.

Wish the opener had been more visual, less literary. Is it just me? Folks fake working? All of those kiddos jumping on beds, and jumping, and jumping. Thought that was never going to end.

Michael Phelps. I feel so bad for him. So much pressure, and expectation. You're doing a great job, but you set the bar SO HIGH last time. Might have been better to go out on top?

The ladies swim suits. The racers have suits that go down to their knees. The synchronized swimmers have over half of their hineys hanging out. What's going on here? And how about some COLOR?

Why must all of the gymnasts have a bazillion little barrettes in their hair? It's not necessary, no matter how many layers you have, so they must think it looks good? Really? Really? Is the glitter hair gel not enough?

Speaking of gymnasts, I want gymnast legs. In my dreams. Don't you? WOW. Or diver's legs. Claude have mercy. So tone. And no veins. Cellulite? What's that? They have no idea.

Okay, on with the show. Back to swimming...

Tribute for a cure!

Proceeds from the sale of the Tribute Bracelet, throughout the weekend, will benefit research for the cure of Ovarian Cancer. What a stylish way to support a great cause!

This bracelet looks great on its own, or layered with other pieces to create an "arm party" layered wrist. I wear mine with our beautiful new rose gold lace cuff. The faceted hematite beads have a perfect amount of sparkle to be dressed up or down. Adjustable to fit S-L wrists.

Shop my Stella & Dot site at select Fall Open House at checkout.

Mr Clean is awesome.

See what a magic eraser can do for a dirty stained sink? If you're a coffee person, you should really try this. You have no idea how stained your sink is... The picture says it all...
