Jamberry Nails Review and Giveaway

Krista Lawler, a Jamberry Independent Sales Representative offered me a chance to review a set of nail shields for the first time.  Krista sent me the Flip Flops set, which was exciting since we are starting to get some warmer weather over here.  Anyways, being a very busy mom of 3 active boys, I normally barely have any time for myself do pamper myself. I actually think that it has been close to 3 years since the last time I got my nails professionally done.  

Overall, this product is a lot of fun for the busy mom and the nail shields were super easy to use. I was able to have the nail shields on my nails within a half an hour and I bet that next time would be faster since this was my very first time.  My husband was actually quite impressed too with the end result and made the comment that my nails did look professionally done.  Krista is an amazing sales representative for Jamberry. She not only has wonderful customer service, she also ships very fast.  Jamberry Nails is also a great company. They offer a large selection of nail shields to choose from and are very affordable.

Jamberry Nail Shields are designed to be easily applied in a salon or at home.
Step 1: Clean nails with nail polish remover or alcohol. (Clean, oil free nails are one of the most important steps of the application)
Step 2: Cut and file nails to desired length and shape.
Step 3: Buff top of the nail and push back cuticle.
Step 4: Match nail (finger or toe) to the nail shield that best fits.
Step 5: Peel off nail shield and warm with a blow-dryer 10-15 seconds or until soft and flexible.
Step 6: When warm, press the shield onto the nail.  Apply firm pressure around edges to adhere the shield to the nail.  Use rubber cuticle pusher to seal the shield around the cuticle.
Step 7:  Trim the top with scissors and file off remaining shield using a downward motion to remove excess.
Step 8: Apply heat and pressure to the shield again until it is sealed to the nail. (Repeating this step several times helps create a tight seal to the nail surface and increases wear time)
Optional  Step 9: For active users you can add a small amount of nail glue to the free edge to better seal the nail shield.
How to Remove:
Use hair dryer to heat for 15 seconds and slowly peel from the corner of your nail

One lucky blog reader of mine will win a Gift Certificate for a Set of their choice.

PÜR Gum Review

PÜR Gum sent me a variety pack of the different flavors of their aspartame free gums to try and review. Being on a weight loss journey myself, I was excited to try this gum since I am very against eating or drinking products that contain aspartame due to the long term affects that aspartame can cause of one's body.  
The flavors that I was given was the spearmint, peppermint, pomegranate mint, and eXcitemint.  All of the gums had a wonderful taste and the flavors lasted surprisingly longer than some of my old favorites. The flavors on all are crisp and refreshing. My favorite flavor out of the 4 flavors that I was sent was the peppermint. Also, unlike other gums that I have tried in the past, there was no bad after taste which made me love this gum even more. 

So, if you are looking for a healthier gum, PÜR Gum is an excellent choice. For more information regarding their product, check out their Facebook, Twitter, and website.

Luvali Handbag Review and Giveaway

I was given the opportunity to review both a Luvali Classic Convertible Handbag and a 2 in 1 wristlet.  Let me just say I fell in love with these handbags.  The convertible handbag allows you to constantly change the look of your purse. When ever you want a change all you have to do is zip down the reversible slip and and flip the reversible slip around and you have a new purse. In all with the Luvali Convertible Handbag, you get 3 purses in 1.  You really can't say that about other handbags.  The handbag itself is the perfect size for me. (8x11x4).  The handbag offers 3 pockets inside and a zip closure. The base of my handbag is black which is great for those special occasions.

I also am now a huge fan of the Luvali 2 in 1 wristlet. The wristlet can either be used as a bangle wristlet or used as a miniature messenger styled bag. This bag is great for those moms like me who are taking the kids out for a day at the beach or park and just want to carry the basics like cash and identification without having to lug a purse around while chasing around the kids.

Now with Mother's Day coming up soon, I have fully started to recommend these amazing handbags to my friends and family members since most people I know love purses. Luvali also offers great customer service. They not only ship products very quickly to their customers, they also respond to emails from customers in a decent amount of time.
So, if you are looking for a new fabulous handbag you can order any of these handbags over on their website Luvali

Luvali is being amazing enough to giveaway one Classic Convertible Handbag to one of my lucky blog followers.
