Product Review & Giveaway - cutey

~ Posted on Sunday, December 4, 2011 at 9:03 AM ~

Ashley from cutey contacted me towards the middle of November asking whether I would be interested to review their range of charm bracelets (as they just launched recently) and also host a giveaway as well. Oh, I would be a total idiot if I say no right?! Anyway, I'm so happy I get to review this gorgeous charm bracelet! Without further delay, here's my review on the charm bracelet:

cutey was founded in 2011 to provide a quality range of customisable jewellery. Their initial range is designed as an everyday accessory that can be used at any time. The range is designed with the ability to be easily changed, allowing the jewellery to be changed based on mood, time or outfit. Their principals are to provide a high level of quality in each of our products. They aim to provide an affordable, every changeable piece of timeless jewellery and guarantee satisfaction in all of their products and will offer a full refund if you are dissatisfied by any of the products purchased through their store.

Their goals are simple, to provide the world with stylish, quality and easily customisable jewellery through many online channels as well as independent small retailers located throughout the world.

Beautiful product, what else can I say?! I requested to review the Hypnos charm bracelet as it has the lobster claw clasp which is something I've always preferred in my jewellery as I find it easy to wear and take out. The charms are cute, not heavy and I love that it does not irritate or poke my skin (unlike some bracelets I wore last time).

Enough talking, just look at the pictures below:

Control your drool...

I always love trying out apps that teaches my children things. There are people who presume that iPad is a bad thing. I mean, if you know how to use it effectively and in moderation, it can be useful and educational! Of course, if you let your child play games on iPad with no educational benefits, then you won't reap the benefits of the apps and off your iPad.

Now as for this app, I absolutely love it! It teaches alphabets in a very very fun and creative way! I find myself gravitating towards the app every time Ben and I go for our iPad sessions.

Ben engrossed with some of the letters like E (for eggs), F (for Fan) and so on.

What's good?

* It is engaging and interactive and I love that we can also touch the objects for each letters of the alphabets on the screen and there are animations appearing as well from each letters!

* I love the illustrations and the colors used are very attractive and enticing! (Ben and I actually fought over who can press the letters of the alphabets and see what animations came out)  

What's not so good?

* I would prefer if the animation does not start until the narrator pronounces the letter and the word for it. Currently, the moment you touch the screen, the animation will start immediately. Because of this, the narrator's voice gets drowned out and is not as effective.

* The animation is so engaging and addictive, how could my boy finished learning from A to Z? Check out the video below where he goes from letter F back to letter E...

You can purchase the "Interactive Alphabet - ABC Flash Cards " app from the iTunes App Store.
