Welcome! I'm Riv Re, teenager and aspiring author. I post Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Tuesdays are for book reviews; Thursdays are for a weekly meme called "Character Dolls," which showcases character depictions I made online; and on Sundays I just wing it.
This blog is for my writing misadventures, my reviews, ramblings, and rants. My favorite genre is fantasy, so expect a lot of the unusual.

Warning: I've got an awful sense of humor. Don't blame me if you keel up and die from reading the jokes I crack.

Enjoy and happy reading!

CSN Store Product Review

Hey Blogger Buds,
I usually don't do product reviews, but I've seen lots of bloggers review CSN stuff, so I decided to give it a go. I won an $80 gift certificate from Larissa's Life, which made me very excited, and I decided on three things.
The site was easy to navigate, though I did have some minor problems with it.
I ordered a flash drive, a bracelet, and a necklace.
Note: These ratings are in no way connected to my usual ratings. They're based on the basic 5 star rating.

The imation flash-drive was 4 gb and a bit pricey, but it arrived swiftly and even has a lock, so you can secure your documents and even choose which ones you want to lock! The problem is the swivel, which is very loose, allowing the flash drive to constantly open. I carry it around with me, around my neck, and this makes me very nervous, but that is on fault of CSN and I really like the flash drive.
Overall Rating: 5 stars

The next thing to arrive was my bracelet. I ordered a Cathy's Concepts Greek Wide Cuff Bracelet and had it personalized with RIV.
This item also came quite quickly, and disappointed me a bit. The three letters were heavily stylized with lots of curves and swirls making it a bit hard to make out. But that wasn't too bad. There were also tiny little scratch marks all over the bracelet. Nothing noticeable, but I was hoping it would be a bit better. It is a beautiful bracelet, though.
Overall Rating: 4 stars

Skyline Silver Sterling Silver Sword with CZ Heart Necklace - SN-917My final item is a bit hard to rate. I ordered a Skyline Silver sword necklace. It is made of sterling silver with a cubic zirconium heart in the middle and tiny teardrop shaped slits in the blade with pink gems in it. The necklace is absolutely gorgeous. But. I love swords, but this necklace looked a bit too much like a cross for me to wear it in public. I highly recommend it, but it my circle I would be asked over and over again why I was wearing a cross, even though it's not. I will be returning this piece, but it's truly lovely. You can hold it up to the light and it sparkles through the heart in the center as well as the pink stones. I will rate it as a product overall, not from my personal standing.
Overall Rating: 5 stars

At the end of it all, I am very happy with CSN.  I will be buying a new product when I return the heart necklace.
