New TV Stands Are More Design Friendly


Remember those enormous TV stands of the past? They were so big and so heavy. I am happy that TV Stands have gotten much more design friendly. The flat screen TV revolution has certainly helped. People now want an inviting living room with an attractive TV stand.


If you know where to shop you can find many TV stands on sale when you shop for one online. I like this Nexera Pinnacle TV stand in black. It is small, simple and would go with any type of decor. This particular stand is 44% off. I love finding a great deal!


If you have a small living space, then a corner TV stand may be for you. I like this one by Sauder. Depending on the placement of your furniture, placing your TV stand in the corner can also allow for better TV viewing. You will want to check out the TV viewing in all seating areas to determine the best placement option for your TV stand. I also like how a corner TV stand allows the TV to kind of blend into the wall and not stick out. These cabinets are nice a low allowing the viewer to be at eye level with the TV. They also offer some nice storage options which hide your DVR, Blue Ray player and gaming consoles.

Review & Giveaway :: Wristlet from Sew Beastly :: CLOSED



Sew Beastly is a fabulous Etsy shop where you will find handmade pouches, handbags and wristlets.

From the moment I received my wristlet to review, I was in love!

First of all I am all about presentation and Sew Beastly delivered! My wristlet was wrapped in the most adorable hand stamped tissue paper! I also received a lovely personalized note card that had a hand sewn ruffle on it! How cute is that?! Then I unwrapped the wristlet and let me tell you I just LOVED it!


The Essential Wristlet in Summer Fields is made of a yellow, grey, and black floral print fabric. The yellow/grey is such a HOT color combo that I just love! It is embellished with an oh-so-cute black and white polka dot ruffle. The wrist strap is the perfect size for carrying.



The inside is fully lined with soft grey fabric. And there are POCKETS! Two pockets match the polka dot ruffle and are the perfect size for a phone, compact or whatever else you want to store away. 


The Essential Wristlet In Summer Fields is large enough to fit everything you need for a hot summer night on the town! It measures 10" X 5" and the pockets are 4.5" each. I am highly impressed with the overall quality and style of this bag. 

Sew Beastly also carries purses and pouches - I love all the styles and fabric choices!


If you are feeling beastly be sure to check out the Sew Beastly blog written by the sweet shop owner, Citlalli. You can also find her on Facebook!
