So Many Things to be Thankful For


Have you had the privilege of checking out  the newest rage in on-line Boutiques?

Sweet Solstice out of Provo, Utah is taking the on-line world by storm…

They offer Daily,  AWESOME deals!

 and to top it off, they believe in giving back.
That is why they are my focus today.

I believe that to show true gratitude for what you have been blessed with,

you should share with others as much as you are able

& Sweet Solstice firmly believes in this theory…

They instinctively feel the need to improve the world and the lives of those around them.

{I LOVE that!}


Sweet Solstice will be selling fresh water pearls

(yes real)

for $20.00 on Black Friday.


so make sure you don’t miss the deal of the century…

 The price will go up just a bit after that, but they will still be WAY lower than

you will find ANYWHERE on the internet in the jewelry stores.

The Shane Company is offering the same set of pearls right now on their Facebook page for $125

and they are raving about THAT deal.

They will have pink, black, and long layered pearl necklaces for a little more (and matching earrings), but still at unheard of prices. SO spread the word, and don’t miss out! If you don’t want to wait for them to be shipped, you can find Sweet Solstice at a Christmas Boutique sale in Orem at the old Nordstrom’s, available for cash and carry!

Some of the other deals that I adore at Sweet Solstice right now are:
