RingandCrown

Magic is power, and power is magic…

Once they were inseparable, just two little girls playing games in a mighty castle. Now Princess Marie-Victoria, heir to the mightiest empire in the world, and Aelwyn Myrddyn, a bastard mage, face vastly different futures.

Quiet and gentle, Marie has never lived up to the ambitions of her mother, Queen Eleanor the Second. With the help of her Merlin, Eleanor has maintained a stranglehold on the world’s only source of magic. While the enchanters faithfully serve the crown, the sun will never set on the Franco-British Empire.

As the annual London Season begins, the great and noble families across the globe flaunt their wealth and magic at parties, teas,and, of course, the lavish Bal du Drap d’Or, the Ball of the Gold Cloth.

But the talk of the season is Ronan Astor, a social-climbing American with only her dazzling beauty to recommend her. Ronan is determined to make a good match to save her family’s position. But when she falls for a handsome rogue on the voyage over, her lofty plans are imperiled by her desires.

Meanwhile, Isabelle of Orleans, daughter of the displaced French royal family, finds herself cast aside by Leopold, heir to thePrussian crown, in favor of a political marriage to Marie-Victoria. Isabelle arrives in the city bent on reclaiming what is hers. But Marie doesn’t even want Leopold-she has lost her heart to a boy the future queen would never be allowed to marry.

When Marie comes to Aelwyn, desperate to escape a life without love, the girls form a perilous plan that endangers not only theentire kingdom but the fate of the monarchy.

I love the watch myself.  It’s got a great feel to it, it’s so different than metal and leather.

ENTER TO WIN: Pure Natural Diva Botanicals

The Benefits of Natural Perfume & Synthetic Free Scents
Why the clamor for 100% natural perfumes? Consider these facts about conventional perfumes:
  • Conventional synthetic perfumes are formulated using an array of over 7000 unidentified chemicals..
  • Clinical Studies have found that workers in the perfume industry are among the groups with the highest rates of occupational asthma.
  • Synthesized ingredients are a very real health concern.  They are only tested for their effects on skin without taking into account respiratory, neurological, or systemic effects.  This is the industry standard.
  •  Most conventional perfumes contain Diethyl phthalates, a known environmental toxin and suspected hormone disrupter.
  • The neurotoxic properties of synthetic musk found in most conventional perfumes  have earned their ban in Japan since the 1980′s.
  • America has the number one rate of cancer in the World; anything we can do to minimize our exposure to possible toxins is an important step towards health and wellness

ENTER TO WIN: The House of Marley Headphones #LiveMarley

House-of-Marley-Audio

Pop superstar and Aussie heartthrob Cody Simpson has returned with “Love,” a heartfelt single featuring Ziggy Marley, and there’s not a sweeter tune we could be playing right about now. It’s a great vibe, with a smooth reggae love song thing going on. Great beat and guitar. Really great listening, good happy song.

Not only do we really love the song, we love the House of Marley headphones Cody is rocking in the new music video! It’s easy to rock Cody’s look with the Smile Jamaica in-ears or the Positive Vibration on-ears.  The Positive Vibration on-ears are really great…sound, look, and feel.  The soft ear-cushions and robust 50mm drivers provide comfort and powerful sound. Crafted from recyclable aluminum, steel and canvas and designed to keep material out of the waste stream. You can’t really go wrong with any House of Marley gear (audio systems, bags, watches), though…especially these awesome headphones!

ENTER TO WIN: Miyu Teas & Beauty’s Hydrate Mi Beauty Kit

MIYU-Collage

Pronounced “mee-you,” the beauty line Miyu Teas & Beauty is self-described as “a revolutionary fusion between a facial mist and a serum that can prime the skin for moisturizer, act as a base for makeup and provide an instant surge of hydration any time of day.” The line not only includes the facial spray, but also tea in a de-stressing and hydrating formula.

Connie Tai, founder of MIYU, has a background in developing skincare and cosmetic products for top spas & beauty companies. Her research found that poor diet, sleep, stress and UV exposure account for 80% of the signs of aging. To combat this, Tai decided to create a line that incorporates the wondrous benefits of tea.

MIYU bridges the gap between topical treatments and a product that nourishes from within. The teas are an antioxidant rich blend of green roobios, (rich in flavonooids; promotes youthful looking complexion), goji berries (high in vitamin C; necessary for collagen production), rose petals and snow pear. The caffeine free combination smells heavenly and tastes delicious!

To find out more about this great line:

One (1) lucky INO reader will receive Miyu’s HYDRATE MI Pairing {Pairing No°2} – MRSP $42!!!
