GIVEAWAY // Win a DIY Wire Cuff Bracelet Kit from YoolaDesign!

Win a DIY Wire Cuff Bracelet Kit from YoolaDesign and Bubby & Bean!

I know that I’m always excited to announce giveaways, but I’m especially thrilled about this one you guys.  That’s because the prize combines two of my absolute favorite things: jewelry and DIY projects! 

Designer Yael Falk uses a rare technique (involving a tiny crochet hook and her hands) to create gorgeous wire jewelry pieces that are sold in museum shops and on her website, YoolaDesign.  When describing her finished pieces, Yael says that “less is more” is her main design concept.  “I wish I could design with air, but since I can’t, I use thin, delicate wires to create clean, geometric jewelry that in some designs ‘cages’ air.”  How cool is that?! 

In addition to creating jewelry, Yael also runs workshops in her studio and designs DIY kits to teach her technique to others.  And now she’s offering Bubby and Bean readers the chance to win her Wire Crochet YoolaCuff Kit so one of you can create your own stunning cuff bracelet!  The kit is a $ 62 value and includes all of the following, packaged in a beautiful gift box: 

1. 1 CD with both a step-by-step video file and a written PDF tutorial
2. 1 crochet hook (size 0.6)
3. 2 spools of color copper wire (28 g/0.3 mm)
4. 1 medium size ISK Starter Loom
5. tube clasp (8 looms)

I wish I could win this one!

死亡事故への疑問

最近、美容外科での死亡事故のニュースを目にすることが多くなったように感じます。
病院の医療ミスで患者が死亡というニュースは一時期良く耳にしたものですし、心臓や脳などの大切な臓器に直接手術をするのですから、小さなミスが死亡につながるということは納得でき、同時にどこか仕方がないもののように感じていました。
ですが、美容外科では体の奥深くにまでメスを入れるわけでもなし、死亡事故なんて起こるものなのかしら?と不思議だったのです。

私自身、そろそろ顔のたるみやしわが気になってくる年頃です。
具体的な年齢は伏せさせていただきますが、いわゆるアラサーを通り越してアラフォーに至ろうとしている頃とだけ言わせていただきます。
世間的にはまだ若い方とはいえ、それでも年々衰えていくことに変わりはなく、このたびついにプチ整形を決意した次第です。
そこで色々なことを調べていたのですが、こういった悪いうわさが出てくるということはそれだけ美容整形を受けた人が多いということに他なりません。
死亡というあまりいいイメージのない言葉と、「美容整形 よかった」といういい言葉で調べてみたところ、後者の方が検索結果がはるかに多いということもわかりました。
分母が大きければ問題もそれだけ大きくなる、ということのようです。
ならば特に気にすることもないものと判断し、美容整形に踏み切ることにしました。

数ある美容整形外科の中でもどこがいいのか、まったくの初体験である私にはわかりません。
じっくりと検討した結果、術前の説明が丁寧でアフターケアがあり、さらに手術ごとに保証期間のある品川美容外科を選びカウンセリングを予約しました。
私は石橋を叩いて渡る主義ですので、これから受けようとしている美容整形手術について今後も調べられるだけ調べようと思っています。
そして、その結果を私のように美容整形について悩んでいる人と共有することができればと思いこのブログを立ち上げました。
整形のことで悩んでいる人の手助けができれば幸いです。

KIDS READ TO HOMELESS CATS AND EVERYBODY WINS

catstopIt’s story time at the Animal Rescue League of Berks County in Birdsboro, Penn., where dozens of kids come to the shelter each week to read to the adoptable cats, improve their skills and provide comfort to cats awaiting their forever homes.

According to the shelter’s Marketing & Communications Director, Beth Ireland, the Reading Buddies program is the brainchild of ARL’s program director, Kristi Rodriquez, whose own son struggled with reading.

Rodriguez knew pets were often helpful in providing assistance to young readers so she brought Sean, a fifth grader, in to the shelter to read to the cats. He loved it so much, that he asked to come back. Six months later, Sean has shown remarkable improvement in his reading and now reads to the family’s dogs at home.

The children find the cats non-threatening and supportive audience, while the cats enjoy human interaction and the rhythmic sound of the child’s voice soothing.
