Alice in Wonderland Gifts that I Need Now!

Coolest Alice in Wonderland Gift Ideas | PrettyOpinionated.com

You know that I am a massive Alice in Wonderland fan, right? I think I’ve mentioned it many times before. With my birthday coming up in less than two weeks, I thought I’d share some gifts on my wish list up until that magical day! I’m turning 22 for the, um, let me do the math, 17th time? Oh, whatever, I’m turning 39. One more year before the big 4-0. Age is totally subjective anyway. I don’t believe in linear time, so as far as I’m concerned, I’m 1, 100 and 21 all at once! Anyway, back to the Alice […] Read more »

Get Him To Give You The Gift You’re Wanting

Holidays like Christmas or Mother’s Day may seem like a distant cry. Yet with my anniversary seemingly right around the corner, it’s important for me to start dropping hints to my husband immediately. The traditional gift for a ten year anniversary is tin, but I’ll gladly stick with the modern alternative of diamond jewelry. Since my husband has never been great at picking out the best jewelry, I’m going to need to point him in the right direction. I’m not the type to be forthright about what I want, so I’ve come up with some creative ways to drop the […] Read more »

There are few things as frustrating as trying to find the perfect gift for “that someone”. You know who I’m talking about. Maybe it’s the boss that has everything.

Indulge Mom with Fair Trade Chocolate Goodness + Delicious Smoothie Recipe

Fair Trade Chocolate Goodness for Mother's Day

I received delicious Fair Trade chocolate products to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own. Mother’s Day is just days away, but there is still plenty of time to pick the perfect gift! Nothing says “you rock, mom” more than chocolate. Rather than getting the same old box of chocolate from the grocery store at the last minute on Sunday morning (oh, like you’ve never done that!), give mom a truly indulgent gift: fair trade chocolate! I love working with Fair Trade USA. In the past, I’ve shared delicious gifts for coffee-loving moms, and a selection of Fair Trade […] Read more »

Put a Bobble In Their Basket to Encourage Kids to Drink Water!

Bobble 1

I received a complimentary Bobble to try out to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.   My son does not like water. He’s a lot like me in that respect. He’ll drink it when he’s brushing his teeth or occasionally at bedtime when he can’t have something else, but overall, he’s not a big water drinker. I think it’s because he’s very sensitive to tastes. He’s always been incredibly picky about food, beverages, medicine or anything else that goes in his mouth. On the plus side, I really never had to worry about him eating strange random objects […] Read more »

If your guy loves things that rise from the grave too, check out these Valentine’s Day gifts for men who like zombies. This post contains affiliate links, by the way.

Win Big with 25 Days Wrapped in Gold by Ferrero Rocher

Ferrero rocher

This post was created in partnership with Ferrero Rocher as part of the 25 Days Wrapped in Gold campaign. Saying that I love chocolate is like saying “I need air to breathe.” It’s pretty much a no-brainer. How could I not love chocolate? It’s ooey, gooey and delicious! I particularly love Ferrero Rocher. It’s such a decadent treat. My favorite part, of course, is the whole hazelnut in every piece of chocolate. Brilliant idea, that was! Boyfriend got me a 24-box recently, for my birthday I believe. I still have the cool reusable plastic box that they came in! I […] Read more »
