Friday Five: Healthy Super Bowl

Holidays always mean food, lots of food, and lots of unhealthy food to say the least. Lots of us women fear the unhealthy temptations that the holidays bring. Let's not fool ourselves though...the holidays are a great excuse to indulge. According to the American culture, Super Bowl is also a great excuse to make that special Sunday a holiday. Looks like this Sunday is going to mean two things: an American holiday and unhealthy food. Giving up the holiday part seems just about impossible, but the unhealthy food part is achievable with this Friday Five. The winning touchdown might be memorable to your eyes for the day, but these healthy treats will be memorable to your stomach for long after the day is over!

Friday Five: Emerald, Color of 2013

New year, new color. Pantone says, "Emerald, a lively, radiant, lush green, is the Color of the Year for 2013"...

With new trendy emerald styles, this post is quite a gem! Is the grass always greener on the other side? 2012 and 2014 might have opposing opinions on that one...

Friday Five: Five Owl Trend Finds

Benjamin Franklin once said, "Life's Tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late." Good thing the trendy wise owl has us all covered this season! You're sure to be a hoot if seen these days walking the town adorning an owl or two. Seems as though every time we are out shopping or running errands, we stumble upon owls! All stores from Target to furniture to clothing stores have owls popping up all over. For Friday Five it would be wisest to share five recent owl finds, including our own Poe-Poe' owl trends. Who wouldn't enjoy a birds-eye view into the new trend? Whether the owl is imprinted all over a trendy infinity scarf, standing as a lamp in your family room, or shakin' salt and pepper at the breakfast table, owls are sure to bring your admirers eyes even bigger than their own!

Holiday Ideas: It's Almost Valentine's Day!

We can't believe how fast Christmas and New Years have gone by! However, we know that January will fly by and Valentine's Day is going to come up very fast. Lots of sites such as Craftgawker are already accumulating Valentine's Day posts. I thought I might as well get a head start on the upcoming holiday and check out these Valentine's Day themed posts to share with everyone. While scrolling through Craftgawker I came upon an adorable jar that led me to a great site... This site already has perfect ideas for Valentine's Day paper crafts.

Everyone has different Valentine's Day traditions and gift ideas so I wanted to share two different ones from our own Poe-Poe' as well as a great site I discovered called Paper Vine. Gifts can range from simple cards to creative crafts to jewelry, but ALL can be equally meaningful to someone special.

Valentine's Day Jar:

Some may prefer a crafty gift just like this Valentine's Day Jar. I'm in love with this idea because it's meaningful and will last throughout the year. Even if you don't have a significant other to gift this Valentine's Day, this jar could be altered to work for anyone like friends and family. Instead of date ideas, each card could have family outing ideas, or girl's night out plans. They don't all have to be romantic either!

Valentine's Day Bracelets (both under $20!):

Here at Poe-Poe' we are already getting started with posting Valentine's Day gifts in our Poe-Poe' Etsy Shop. These elastic bracelets with rhinestone accents are the perfect Valentine's Day gift for under $10! These can be worn as stack-able bracelets or as no crease hair ties. They also come in a variety of colors with rhinestone circles, squares, and hearts. I love this gift idea because they can be given to just about anyone for a great price. You're significant other, granddaughter, cousin, friend, or anyone else can wear this Valentine's Day gift and wear the holiday colors!

This Rhinestone Wrap Bracelet is another bracelet from Poe-Poe' for someone who is looking for a gift that can be worn during Valentine's Day or any other day as a new trendy style. This bracelet is great for a Valentine's Day gift under $20! These rhinestone wrap bracelets come in a variety of colors, but I felt that this maroon and powder blue one was fashionable to the special holiday. Whoever receives this gift on Valentine's Day will be able to show off a trendy wrap bracelet whenever they please!
