I lost the art of being a girly girl when I was about 10 years old. Having two boys before I had my daughter certainly did not help the matter any. As my daughter gets old I realize more and more she will be nothing like me! She is everything girly and dreams of being a princess. For the longest time I have kind of avoided reviewing girly products but as she grows older I realize how much she would love to do them. Recently I was given a chance to review the Kivelli Bracelet Layette Collection. When we received our bracelet I was certainly just happy it had made it. The postal service did not handle with care and the bracelet was hanging half out of its package! Here I was worrying about my daughter breaking it, what I should have worried about was the postman.lol Since it had made it to the house in one piece despite its rough handling I was then less worried about letting her wear it and have a great time with it. The bracelet is so tiny and elegant it was hard to believe that it would even fit. As soon as I place it on her wrist she was simply in love with it. She danced and sang for hours about how now she was a real princess. It has been several weeks now of almost non-stop wearing and the bracelet is still hanging strong. I really recommend that if you are looking to make your princess feel a little more special head to Kivelli and check out their products.
Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work right.lol Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like licorice.lol After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li
