It looks great on its own or paired with some gold hoops, and you can even pair it with a cool ear crawler. These elegant and modern ear cuffs come with sleek built-in tassel earrings.

Back 2 School Week: Fun Lunch Ideas for Kids

I've learned that whenever school becomes stressful for my daughter Kylie, there is always something I can do to make her days better--giving her a special lunch. From adorable lunch boxes to fun foods, here is all you need t perk up your child's school lunch.

Saftey First! Here is a link to food safety guidlines for you child's lunchbox via Kraft Foods: http://www.kraftrecipes.com/yourkids/lunchbox-solutions/lunchboxsafety.aspx

Here are some fun new recipes and ideas:

If you want to pack an eco-friendly lunch for your child, there are many options now, like these reusable snack and sandwich bags from PBGreen: http://www.pbgreenbags.com/ . These can be expensive, but they are available on etsy.com and a lot of other websites and stores, so shop around if you're looking for a deal.

Don't forget to leave a sweet note with their lunch. (Unless they're teeneages!) Whenever my daughter is having a rough week, a few sweet "I love you" notes cheer her right up.
