Love and Prayers for London

 

 

When attacks like this happens, my heart is numb. Whenever I hear the police sirens my pulse heightens. Life is like a river, even though the water is dirty,  the love for every creature that dwells within it  is everlasting. Never lose hope for peace and pray for those who do you harm. Showing them evil will only give them power, instead don’t let them see you sweat. Walk with grace and love, because you are a royal nation and God will be with us all.

Love your friend at True Vivant.

VALENTINES DAY SERIES: Jewelry Gifts for Him

As you can see the Valentines Day series continues with more gift ideas that you can present to your man on Valentines Day without breaking the bank. I believe that you can buy the perfect gift, without having to spend a lot. So let’s start virtual shopping. The next product that your going to see comes from the place that’s at the top of my bucket list. The Jewelry company “Shani & Adi” creates all of there priceless accessories in Israel and all of their jewelry designs has a little piece of the Holy Land within them.

The middle east is known for it’s exotic sceneries and historic landmarks that existed way before us. This is what attracted me to this jewelry company, because they uphold the internal beauty of Israel, while still adding a modern twist. I recently received a beautiful Hebrew inscribed necklace that was made and designed for man, so I decided to bless my other older brother with it. As you read along you will see why I gave him this necklace.

 

First off, here is the  Hebrew necklace for men created by Shani & Adi:

Necklace for men – men’s necklace with a silver plaque Hebrew sentence: יברכך ה וישמרך which means ‘God bless you and watch over you’. on a silver tone chain and a clasp closure.

Chain material: nickel
Pendant material: silver plated
Chain length: approximately 22 inch. please let us know if you would like a different length.

This necklace is great as a gift for a man or a boy.
All of our jewelry comes wrapped and ready for gift giving!

Here is the packaging:

The necklace felt very light in weight and the design is simple. The process of the shipment didn’t take too long, especially since  it came  from a far. The actual designers at Shani & Adi was hands on in answering any question that I had and updated me on the duration of the shipment.  I don’t have anything bad to say about the company or of their product. I only hope that you too will experience such beauty in their jewelry pieces and I’m not talking about the necklace. Shani & Adi also creates different pendant designs and bracelets. Everyone needs to know that God is with them always, including the man in your life.

VALENTINES DAY SERIES: Jewelry Gifts for Him

The season of love is in the air and my Valentines Day series will continue until February is over! Love is not just a holiday thing, but an everyday celebration. The last product that we reviewed was a gift for her, but what about that special man in your life? Yes indeed, so let’s talk about some ideas that the man in your life might like. The product featured in our series  is from Celtic Treasures. Their jewelry collection features some of the most unique designs that reflects the true beauty of Ireland, along with symbolizing  spiritual growth.

Here is the beautiful  Star of David Genuine Sodalite gemstone stretch bracelet that I received from Celtic Treasures.

16468667_1773026436357512_405236424_n

This bracelet was very breathe taking in the online store, but when I received it in the mail it was magical. The color is abstract and still masculine at the same time. Let’s be honest ladies, most of the time guys like to wear red, blue and  black. I’m not saying those colors are terrible, but sometimes you have to switch it up. This is the true reason why Celtic Treasures is the destination for meaningful jewelry for both men and women . The intricate designs are made with marble and wooden beads which is perfect for unisex wear. The Star of David bracelet  blends well  with any dress code and the biblical meaning is a great way to encourage your mate emotionally.

 

Since this is a men’s bracelet, my older brother is modeling the bracelet for us. He was awarded the bracelet for being our model  and conveniently was his Valentines Day gift:
