Everyday is Mothers Day Gift Ideas: Royal Tea Travels

Now the tour is going international! Let’s be honest, traveling abroad is on the pricey side and the long flights can make your dreams of traveling fade away like the wind. Thankfully, I found the perfect way to have tea, but you can now drink tea as if you were the Queen of England. Just like you, I am also fascinated with the history of the British Royal family, along with the history of many other cultures. So finding a tea set company who sells authentic sets at an affordable price was hard to find until now.


Anne’s Vintage Delights is your destination for having a moment just for you as a woman. Her shop has some of the most intricate designs that will make the perfect gift for the special person in your life. The china is durable and the plate can be used for tea biscuits and many more delicious treats.

This elegant tea set comprising one tea cup, saucer and plate was made by Royal Albert and the pattern is called Silver Maple. The pretty footed cup pairs really well with the soft and delicate pattern of the china.
This tea set  consists of  one tea cup, one saucer and one plate but  they do have more available as well as a matching cake stand.

• The plate measures 6¼ ins / 16 cm across
• The saucer measures 5½ ins / 14 cm across
• The cup is just over 2½ ins / 6.5 cm high

All pieces are in good vintage condition with no obvious wear.

The china will be packed securely with bubblewrap in a postage style cardboard box, sealed with a thank you napkin and the postage seal of the Queen of England.

You will be seeing me and my tea set traveling the world very soon. Keep following my blog for more of my Royal Tea Travels.





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

We are here again for another tour across the world! 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.


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:


The Men’s Stretch Bracelet with silver plated Magen David, 6mm and 8mm round genuine Sodalite gemstones

Sodalite: Intelligence, Truth, Self-Esteem

This stone enhances both intelligence and communication, helping us to express our thoughts and feelings clearly and confidently. It instills a drive for truth and helps us remain true to–and stand up for–ourselves. It enhances self-trust self-knowledge, self-esteem, and self-acceptance. It units logic with intuition and enhances spiritual and psychic perception. Sodalite also assists meditation.

Gift boxed with a card on the gemstone properties
Bracelet measures 8″
Custom sizes available upon request

Available in Hematite gemstones


They are many jewelry pieces such as earrings, necklaces and more bracelets for your Madam or Sir this Valentines Day!
