Jamberry

Hello all! I hope everyone is staying warm if you are in cold snowy temperatures like I am. How many of you love doing your nails or having them done? If so,  have you tried Jamberry Nail Wraps yet? I tried them for the first time this week and love them. Jamberry is a company that makes quick and simple nail wraps that you can do at home. Seriously it took me 20 mins. If you are a nail girl like I am than you know how awesome that is. How many times have you wanted to do your nails before going out and there was not enough time for them to dry? Or how many times have you done your nails and messed one or two of them up trying to get ready? #Me. Jamberry solves that problem! There is no waiting for your nails to dry or applying coat after coat to get that perfect shine. All you have to do is match the nail wrap to your nails, warm the adhesive with a blow dryer, apply wrap to clean nails, and apply pressure. Then use a cuticle pusher to seal around edges, and cut or file off the excess. See it’s that easy and only takes a matter of minutes.

Ready to try Jamberry? How about a free sample? I have partnered with Kami Lingren, Advanced Consultant for Jamberry Nails to offer you a free sample of Jamberry Nail Wraps. You will not be disappointed!

My Valentine’s Day Outfit

I hope everyone has their Valentine’s day/night plans already in the works. If not you need to get on it!! A couple days ago the weather was great and I decided to do an impromptu photo shoot with my Valentine’s date night outfit. I went simple this year. I paired a black tank and leggings, with a hot pink blazer. Then I added a touch of leopard with a skinny belt and heels. You can never go wrong with a little leopard. Check out the photo shoot and outfit details below.

Happy middle of the week peeps! I hope it is treating you good. Mine has been super busy, but I am keeping my head above water. Anything exciting going on in your life this week?
