Valentines Day 2017 - When to celebrate??


Valentine's Day is a month away (already!!) and this year it falls on Tuesday, 2/14/17. Argh! Now in addition to finding the perfect gift, you have to decide if you want to celebrate the weekend before, the weekend after, or on the actual day. 


THE WEEKEND BEFORE (2/11-2/12)
This might be the best option for those taking a whole weekend to bask in their love, but it means booking a wee bit earlier and being on top of your game. Plus, when the actual day comes, you don't want your sweetie to feel like it's already passed. Maybe that means extra flowers??


THE WEEKEND AFTER (2/18-2/19)
This would probably be my first choice because I hate crowds, and it would give me a little more time to plan. I mean, come on, how can we already be talking about Valentine's Day, right? The downside is what do you do on the actual day? Maybe a little teaser gift to let him or her know that something special is coming?


THE DAY OF (Tuesday, 2/14/17)
When Valentine's Day falls on a weekday, there are all kinds of things to consider. Does your significant otter like having a nice dinner during the week or is he/she too busy too relax? Do you like being at a romantic restaurant when it's packed? Can you or do you want to go easy on the wine since you might have to work the next day? Can you find a baby sitter?


Too many decisions, right? Well, now's the time to start thinking about it. 2017 is in full swing!!

Valentine's Day order deadline is January 31st (USA) orders! Have questions? We're here!!

Power Phrase Bracelets at Risky Beads - AKA - It's time to get your mantra on!

As 2015 starts sprinting to a close - where has this year gone???? - I like reflect a little on what was popular this year. One theme sticks out above all others - the power phrase. 2015 has been a year of coming out and coming to terms worldwide. The concept of a transgender person became a household conversation (yay!), terrorist attacks make it clear that there are no real boundaries anymore, and the idea of what a police force should be is always being discussed. For those reasons, and I'm sure many, many others, many people have stood up and stayed strong, making it clear where they stand on big issues and personal ones. Power phrase bracelets (and other jewelry) have become a sign of these trying times. Here are a few of our best sellers. Keep in mind that we can customize every once of these with your own wording. Each listing will give you the specs for each piece.









And don't forget about our Black Friday/Cyber Monday deals!!

More soon,
