Untangle Your Necklaces

Recently Kim and I finished the Women’s Expo and carefully put everything in boxes when we tore down our SparkleOn booth. I laid these necklaces orderly in the box myself and can’t figure out how these necklaces commingled into a big ball of chains!

I didn’t know where to start to untangle them. I worked at separating them and had zero luck. I’ve had tangled necklaces before but not fourteen of them! Not a chance that this was going to be a quick fix. I searched online for the best way to untangle necklaces. This is what I did:

I started by unhooking all the clasps. Then I chose one chain to work through the tangled mess. I freed that one and then moved on to the next. Counting down to half and then one lone necklace remained!

For these particular chains, the only thing I had to do was unhook the clasps and then patiently work on one at a time until they were all freed! Hurray, Sparkle On!

Hello friends! As far back as I can remember I’ve had an interest in business. I’d set up my own little store at my house and try to pawn my stuff off to my siblings. I’d created a menu in the kitchen and sell sandwiches to them too. In middle school I use to spend hours writing invention ideas in notebooks. I’ve always had the heart and mind of an entrepreneur. In January 2012 I had this crazy idea for a senior project to start my own company. I have also ALWAYS LOVED sparkles, so I combined business and sparkles to create SparkleOn. With the help of my amazing Mother and my brilliant sister my dreams are becoming reality. In my wildest dreams SparkleOn would be sending hundreds of sparkles around the world everyday. As my friend- it would mean the world to me to help my crazy, wild, ideas grow. Help me spread the sparkles 🙂

As an incentive to share this and like our page- we are having this awesome giveaway.

Much love,

Kim Raines- CEO at http://www.SparkleOn.biz

Welcome, Pink Poppy!

Welcome Pink Poppy

SparkleOn now offers Pink Poppy merchandise! We found the Pink Poppy brand at a tradeshow in Seattle, Washington and fell in love with it. Pink Poppy offers beautiful products that are sure to excite young girls! It carries the signature themes of princesses, mermaids and fairies, and each theme includes its own unique, quality made products. Although Pink Poppy has been in existence for 30 years (beginning in Sydney, Australia), the brand has only recently expanded into the USA; we are one of the first online stores to begin carrying it in the USA!

SparkleOn will begin carrying the following from Pink Poppy: hair accessories, gift ideas, necklaces and jewelry, beautiful purses, bags and handbags, and tiaras. These products meet our sparkle criteria – every product has sparkle, shimmer or glitter. View our new Pink Poppy items.

Our hope is that young girls will step into a world of imagination and fun through these sparkly products, making magical memories and dreaming big dreams.  Please visit our website and let us know what you think about “the wonderful world of Pink Poppy!”

Shop Online This Holiday Season!

Online shopping is becoming more and more popular, and there’s a reason why! As the holidays approach, here are a few reasons why you may want to consider shopping online.

Online Shopping

1.      Avoid The Holiday Traffic

During the holiday season, everyone seems to be on the road – you never knew there were so many people living in your hometown! The heavy traffic leads to longer drive time as you shop for gifts at brick and mortar stores. Plus, who really wants to drive around after a long day at work and then hours of shopping? Not to mention you’ll be driving on the roads with hundreds of other exhausted shoppers on the road; that sounds like a recipe for disaster!

2.      Don’t Wander From Store To Store

Unfortunately, one store usually doesn’t cut it when holiday shopping. We drive from one side of town to the other hoping to find that perfect gift while our gas tank moves steadily closer to empty. Have you seen the movie Jingle All The Way? The movie follows a father who travels all over town competing with other shoppers to find a specific, popular action figure for his son’s Christmas present. How many of us have been in this exact situation?

3.      Avoid Crowded Stores

When we finally get to a store after weaving our way through traffic, we wander into a building crowded with people. The reason we are there in the first place – to buy gifts for loved ones – takes the backseat. Instead we encounter another traffic situation only with other shopping carts.. When you’re shopping online, you avoid all of this commotion.

4.      Don’t Wait In The Inescapable Line

We all knew this would be on the list. Now you’ve managed to grab a few gift items and have been bruised twice by other shopping carts. You’re ready to get out of this store but before you can leave, you must face the line. And there are 10 shoppers with 25 items each in front of you. Let the wait begin. When you’re shopping online, you forgo lines and a long wait.

5.      Easy Gift Transportation

Heave the heavy bags out to your car, pile them in the trunk and back seat, and when you get home, try hauling them into your house. Wouldn’t it be nice if someone could just deliver your gifts to your house and save you the hassle? Well, if you shop online, all your items are delivered to your home.

6.      Discounts Online

There are credit card companies offering discounts for shopping online. Some companies offer 5% -20% savings if you shop online with one of their partners. Not to mention, the online stores themselves offer great discounts. Save money during the Holidays by shopping online.

7.      Open 24 Hours A Day, 7 Days A Week

One of the nicest things about online shopping is the flexibility. For those of us who work the night shift or really don’t have time to go shopping during the normal business day, online shopping is wonderful. Websites don’t lock up at night – they are open 24/7 allowing you the opportunity to shop when it fits your busy schedule.

8.      Compare Prices Easily

Ever had that time when you went to the store, bought that really expensive gift, and realized afterwards that the same item was 50% off at a different store? Another nice perk about online shopping is that you have easy access to prices from a variety of stores, allowing you to compare prices and know that you’re getting the best deal.

9.      Shop Around The world

The internet has opened so many ways for people to interact around the world. It’s amazing we actually can buy products from stores in other countries with the click of a mouse! Find the most original gift by visiting online stores in Tokyo, London, Paris, and more! The possibilities are endless with online shopping! And don’t forget SparkleOn.biz!

10.   More Time For Friends and Family

Online shopping lets you avoid crowds, lines and traffic, save money, offers flexibility and opens up a door of gift possibilities. All of these things are wonderful! But we think the #1 reason you should shop online is so you can spend more time with your family and friends enjoying the Holiday season! Sit down with a hot beverage, listen to some Holiday music, and, when it’s convenient for you, take some time to shop online for those dearest to you. Spend the rest of your time playing games, going ice skating, watching movies, baking cookies, and just being with friends and family.
