Platinum Dreams

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Platinum Guild International USA. All opinions are 100% mine. It wasn't very long ago that platinum was something dreams were made of.

We decided to have my wedding set made in Platinum because of the timeless beauty and the fact that the metal is strong enough to hold my diamond.

Why I left my purchases at the big box bullseye store

You all know I hate poor processes and customer service. I believe that every store needs to make it easy for a person to shop in their establishment no matter how big their operation.
