They have more than 2,300 ENERGY STAR certified products available at their stores and online at No shopping around here, just an awesome one stop for all your electronics needs.

Ford Cares Warrior in Pink Review


The fight against breast cancer is very dear to me. My aunt is a survivor and my mom and her other two sisters have all had scares with it, which makes me VERY high risk. When I got the chance to partner up with Ford Cares to spread the word on their efforts to raise awareness and contribute to finding a cure, I was ecstatic!

I received a tote bag, a T-shirt, a pair of yoga pants and a scarf to review and share my thoughts with you guys and I was amazed by the quality of each item!

I loved the T-shirt and I wore it the day after I received it. The pink color is beautiful and it has a word “warrior” on the side. I am a sucker for v necks and this one is my new favorite :) I love how comfortable it is and the design on the side is beautiful and I’ve already had many people complimenting it.

It pairs beautifully with the yoga pants which are blue with a colorful pink band on the waist and the words “warrior in pink” on the bottom of the left leg. I love yoga pants and these are super comfy and made my butt love great! ;)

The tote is our new family pool bag, it’s big enough to fit everyone’s towels and pool accessories. The design is gorgeous and it’s my favorite item from all the things I received. It’s even lined with pink “warrior” silk. It is sturdy and I’m sure will last a very long time. It also has a zipper which makes it that much better.

The scarf is so beautiful my mom stole it from me! I know it sounds like a joke but its true. As soon as she saw it I knew I wasn’t getting it back, so I just asked her to model for me so I could take a picture. It is really pretty I don’t blame her and on her defense it looks a lot better on her. The fabric is great, it feels light and its super wide so it’s almost like a cover up. The “warrior” design is very subtle which makes it a great accessory.

Thank you so much to Ford cares for sending me this beautiful items, it’s feels great to be able to help raise awareness for breast cancer.

Did I mention that 100% of the proceeds from all sales is dedicated to donations going to charities that offer a wide-range of support. Ford is so committed to the cause that it has dedicated more than $115 million to it. To get your own Warriors in Pink/Ford Cares items to help on the fight make sure to go HERE. Then come back and let me know what you got ;) .

Diamond Nexus Review and Giveaway!

Diamonds are a girls best friend (or so they say!) I just think girls like sparkly things that make us feel pretty and this frugal girl has some issues with not only the cost of real diamonds but the cruelty and ethics of mined diamonds. But to my surprise there’s an awesome company that shares my view and create the most stunning lab created pieces………..enter Diamond Nexus!

I got the the Mia earrings, which are these gorgeous dangling stimulant drops on stud encrusted fish hooks. The center stone is 1.03 carats and the total weight is 2.11 carats. There are set on Lorián Platinum which is brilliant and lightweight. Needless to say I am in love! I have very delicate ears and I can’t even wear silver for too long, I wore these the entire weekend and they felt perfect.

You can find everything from jaw dropping engagement rings to always in stud earrings and customized them by picking size, style, setting and choice of 14K yellow gold, white gold and platinum. This last option is the greatest to me, most places that offer lab created gems usually set them on non precious metals. Diamond Nexus stones are tough and last just as long as mined diamonds. Their quality is amazing and NO ONE will be able to tell they are not real diamonds, not even a jeweler could tell the difference. Can you?

Their amazing guarantee promises worry free shopping, here are their 3 main guarantees:

  • Inspect, enjoy, and wear your Diamond Nexus jewelry for 30 days. If you are not thoroughly satisfied, even elated, will be cheerfully refunded.
  • If a Diamond Nexus ever fades, discolors, or becomes damaged, (which it won’t!) a free replacement will be granted.
  • If a Diamond Nexus stone is ever lost from its setting, they will replace it with only a nominal re-mounting charge. No insurance required!

Did I mention that Diamond Nexus has been the creator of the Miss Universe and Miss USA crowns for many years? Yeah, I know! You can find Diamond Nexus HERE, make sure to like them on Facebook and follow them on Twitter.

Now for what you guys have been waiting for, one lucky Austin Couponing fan will win a pair of Round cut Studs, tension back/basket set on 14k gold. These would be the perfect complement to any outfit, so gorgeous and I am so jealous ;) All you have to do is enter below.
