Jamberry Nails Review

Disclaimer: I received samples from Noelle, a Jamberry Nails consultant to review. Opinions expressed in this post are my own.

Oh hey, it's Friday and Superbowl is in a few days! Woohoo! So I'm here to tell you about Jamberry Nails. Have you heard of them? After some email correspondence with Noelle, I learned that they're vinyl nail wraps that allow you to have salon quality nails for an affordable price AND they can be done in your own home. They last up to 2 weeks on your fingernails and 6 weeks on your toes.

It took a while for me to have the courage (and time) to try the cute designs I was sent but hey, here I am now sharing my 7-Day challenge! I somewhat failed in making the vinyl stick smoothly even after following directions. I was warned by Noelle though so I kind of expected it to happen already. I was just not sure how it would happen.

Pros:
Lasts longer than regular nail polish.
Fun designs.
No need for nail art.
You only need a hairdryer and a nail file.
No need to wait for your nails to dry.

Cons:
A little hard to apply.
Pricier than regular nail polish.

Here is what my nails looked like after seven days...

Have you tried vinyl nails before? Did you like them? :)

Flower Power in Winter

To say that we were having winter weather the day we took these pictures would be a lie. It was warm enough for an almost sheer shirt but cold enough to still be able to wear a cardi. In short, it was the perfect time to wear my new tee from Zara (for $13!) out.

We were busy the whole day getting errands done, shopping for food so I don't have to get my lazy ass out for the entire week because Ron can't come with me. He flew out of the country to visit his siblings whom he hasn't seen in nearly nine years. I am overflowing with anxiety the entire time he was in transit but I am back to my emotionally stable self, having a glass of wine every night so I don't stay up texting him like a teenage girl staying up, head over heels in love. LOL

Jord Watch Review + Giveaway

Disclaimer: I received a free watch from WoodWatches.com in exchange for this review. All opinions are my own.

If I have not mentioned it yet, I love watches. It's one of those things that Ron and I both obsess over. We can probably go two weeks without wearing the same watch twice but then again, I'd rather not because I am one to play favorites. My Jord watch is currently one of my favorites for a few reasons; it's super light, it's brown and black so it basically goes great with everything and it's stylish enough to make a statement but subtle enough to be worn with almost any outfit.
