Lemonberry Lane: Red Heart Locket


What a sweet gift for someone special to show just how much you love them.  The Red Heart Locket from Lemonberry Lane is so beautiful with its lovely crystal details and stunning red color.  

The gunmetal chain measures approximately 32" and comes with an extender.  The chain is adorned with two red crystals on either side of the clasp and a crystal dangles from the extender.  I just love the special details that this company has added.


This heart necklace features a pendant that opens to reveal a personal message printed on a secret scroll.  This would be perfect for important names and dates, a favorite quote or phrase, or a unique message all your own!  You can have them print it for you or you can request a blank scroll.


The long chain gives this necklace such a romantic feel.  I feel in love with it this instant I saw it in the gift box.  This locket will arrive ready for gift giving.  A personalized locket is such a wonderful gift for a teacher, friend, teen, mother...who will you think to give one to?


There so many pretty locket styles to choose from!  These are also called prayer box lockets. They're such a great way to say, "I love you!"  Affordable and attractive...you can't go wrong with a Lemonberry Lane locket necklace.

Evoke Socks: Luxury Cashmere

EVOKE SOCKS: Luxury Cashmere – The comfort of cashmere, inspiring bold colors, and socially responsible; that pretty much sums up this sophisticated company.  I know cashmere is a luxurious wool sought after for its ultimate softness and rarity.  I wish I could’ve been introduced to Evoke Socks sooner, because they are now my most desired brand of dress socks.  I’ve never owned socks as comfortable, as bold in color, or that I didn’t have to continuously pull up because of the lack of elasticity in the the calf portion.


I love to spice up my wardrobe with something flashy and bold.  Fashion statements are made with a tie for most men.  I don’t wear a tie all the time so I use my socks to show off a bit of my personality.  Unlike other dress socks I’ve owned before – usually made from cotton – these socks stay comfortable even up to the end of a long day.  They also keep my feet dry with their natural wicking property of cashmere wool.  Made from 80% cashmere, 18% polyester, and 2% elastane, Evoke Socks uses this blend of materials to provide maximum durability and comfort.  


When it’s time to buy your Evoke Socks, there are three packages to choose from: The Rookie (2 pairs), The Professional (4 pairs), and The Veteran (6 pairs).  Which will color combinations will you choose?  You can also purchase their socks individually.  


Evoke Socks has a variety of stylish colors to choose from.  Not only will your feet be comfortable, you will also be helping contribute to charities.  Evoke Socks’ purpose is to raise awareness and funds to charities who fight to better our world.  This is commendable and I am happy to spread the word about their efforts.


Bottom Line:  Keep your feet comfortable all day with cashmere socks from Evoke Socks.  Don't be afraid to add some bold color to your life!  You’ll be proud to know that you are making a difference in making our world a better place with your sock purchase.  Check out Evoke Socks and find the statement socks your wardrobe is yearning for.
