Del Sol Color Changing Apparel + 20% #CouponCode

Remember the mood rings of the '70's? The rings changed colors based on the temperature of your body. I've always thought it would be great to have clothing that did the same thing. One could gauge all kinds of things with that kind of technology--Identify a fever, or chills, for instance!
We're actually closer than ever to that sort of thing! Now, there is clothing that changes colors with the rays of the sun! So many possibilities, and what a fashion statement! The colors appear more muted when inside, but step outside and the brilliant array of colors burst forth within seconds!
It's a real bang for the buck with Del Sol's color changing apparel and accessories--2 looks for the price of 1! When Indoors, it is definitely a more muted version of the exposed-to-the-elements look. Additionally, what a treat to have your clothing unlock the sun's powerful potential. The technology uses Spectrachrome Crystals in the dye, which when put onto fabrics, plastics or even in liquids like nail laquer, then exposed to sunlight, becomes visible to the human eye. NASA explored it for the space program, Del Sol engineered it, and enhanced it for everyone under the sun! I think you could definitely call it rocket science!
 What if it's overcast? Not to worry, as we've all been made aware that the sun's rays get through those dark and stormy clouds, the clothing picks up color every bit as well. It also serves as a reminder to put on your sunscreen! Even on cloudy days, up to 80 percent of the sun's ultraviolet rays can pass through the clouds. This shirt and sunglasses went outside on an overcast day at around 3 pm. You can definitely see the color changes!

Del Sol products make great gifts! My sister-in-law, Alicia, had a  birthday last week and I gave her the long-sleeve 'Tales Of The Sea' tee from Del Sol. She loved it and even modeled it for me! She is a trooper right now, going through a round of chemotherapy to get rid of her Stage 1 breast cancer. We're so glad that she caught it early! The cute little one is her granddaughter!

Del Sol has some great incentives for their customers!
  • Shops in 41 U.S. States, including Alaska and Hawaii
  • Free Shipping on all orders over $35
  • Sol Style nail laquer subscription box with up to 3 color changing polishes and 40% off regular pricing!
  • Monthly steals and deals on their website and social media pages
  • A fully stocked Disney apparel line
  • A fully stocked Marvel apparel line
  • Eyewear that is 100% UVA/UVB and polarized!
  • And much more!
 Right now their flip flops are on sale for just $15.00! They are so cute! And if you use this coupon code, AGalNeedsSun you can get another 20% off the purchase price of anything on the site! Expires 11/25/15.

NASA explored it for their space program, and Del Sol engineered and enhanced it for everyone under the sun! It’s not rocket science but, then again, maybe it is. - See more at:

A Cute Baby Shower Gift!

This weekend was filled with a couple of family functions.  A baby shower and a birthday party, to be specific!  Both were so much fun, as they always are when either my sister or sister-in-law puts them on.  They have the talent for entertaining!  They put out such a great layout of food, decorations and calm serenity!  They go about their hostessing business, looking great and so organized.   If it was me, I would be a frazzled, resentful mess.  Everything would be half done, half baked, and  in a half-hearted state of semi-readiness. No, you wouldn't want to come to one of my parties.  On the other hand, I brought the cutest gift to the baby shower. No, I didn't make it, but it seems simple enough to do.  I thought I'd share it for the craftsy gals out there!  It's a baby girl owl!  It has rolled up newborn diapers, with a blanket, bib, changing pad, socks, wash rag, little hair bows, big daisies, attached with rubber band, ribbon and pipe cleaners.  I think it turned out so cute.  I have a friend who does these little gifts as a business.  I paid $20 for this one.  It was a huge hit at the shower!   Next time I think I'll make one!

Novica - Friend Of Creativity And Beauty

I just found out about this great company called Novica, associated with National Geographic! I guess I'm just not with it, because if I were, I'd have known about Novica having been named one of the Hot 100 websites in Dec 2008, carrying right over to now, 2010! Do you love authentic regional artwork?  (Me!) Do you love quality textiles, fabrics, stones and metals made into art from other countries?  (Count me in!) Do you travel just to find wonderful souvenirs and treasures at bargain prices?  (No, but would love to!) Do you love to help others who are struggling to make ends meet?  (Of course!) If the answer is yes to any of these questions, you will love Novica!
As I browsed the site, I found beautiful quality, hand made creations like hammocks to relax in, beautiful leather and suede bags, sweaters made from the finest alpaca wool, truly authentic and beautiful jewelry and more! All of these were made by artisans from places like the Andes, Bali and Java, Brazil, Central America, India, Thailand, Mexico and India. 
Personally, I think Novica makes the world much smaller in terms of bringing the work of small time artisans as well as more prominent international artisans to my doorstep! Beautiful creations from around the world can make me smile, in the comfort of my home, not to mention the great deals!

Some more questions to ponder - Are you the discerning shopper who loves to give great, one-of-a-kind gifts?  Are you part of a corporation who wants to make an impression with the gifts it presents?  Novica has a great corporate gifts section as well as a green gifts category, with items that are eco-friendly, and kind to the planet!
Novica expresses it this way:
We want to give artists and artisans around the world a global platform to express their true artistic talents and to spur their creativity. And, we want to provide you with access to unique, hard-to-find items at great values that only the Internet infrastructure can allow.
At the deepest essence of our philosophy, we want to create a bridge between you and the many talented artisans across the globe.
We want you to know about who you're buying from. We want you to feel that attachment to the product and to the hands that created it.
In the spirit of the Internet, let us bring you together.
NOVICA. The World is Your Market.
Artisans such as César Gonzáles are so grateful for Novica and their artisan loan program, where they give eligible artisans loans with 0% interest!

"I give thanks to Novica for the significant change it has made in my life. Before, we were living with a mattress on the floor, and now we have a comfortable and pleasant new home. I'm very happy to have been able to pay for the schooling of my three children and the comfort of my family. Previously, I sold my work on the street. Now, my income has increased three times. I am doing the job I always dreamed of doing, and I love it."

My opinion of Novica is very high!  I love the fact that they give talented artisans around the world a place to express their artistic talents and provide access to the world market!  I consider use of this site a must!

If you  are a first-time purchaser from Novica, you will  receive $10 off your purchase!  Just add this code when you check out!  NOVICA243
