This is my review of Jamberry nail wraps:  When they were on the next day I really enjoyed looking at my fingernails and felt very spring time-ish since I picked a pretty pastel pink with polka dots.  I figured that they would match the nude colored polish I wear most often.  I definitely couldn’t have pulled anything off like this with the polish I have at home!

The reason I say that I liked them the next day is because when I first put them on, I probably needed to file the edges down a bit more and little wear and tear between days helped finish the edges off better.  This is the first time I had ever used these nail wraps.    I will see if the Jamberrys make it to their expected two weeks worth of wear.  Even if they make it to one week, I will be impressed. (I will post an update later.)

Now the drawbacks to the nail wraps.  They took me a long time to put on–more than an hour.  In fairness, I have never done this before so I don’t know if  this is normal or not.  If the wraps really last more than a week, then the extra time put in at the beginning will be worth the wait. The other problems I had with these is they didn’t fit perfectly in width to my ring finger.  From the side you can really tell.  I was surprised about this because I have generally small hands.

Overall, If I want to feel festive, the wraps are definitely a way to dress my nails up.  Just look at the possibilities.  I wouldn’t be able to accomplish any of these looks without Jamberry. Oh, and FREE SAMPLES PEOPLE…whoever wants a free sample just go here.

A Giveaway!

Do You Need a New Chic Planner to Start Your School Year Right? (Freebie)

I mean just LOOK at these new adorable planners, I have found!  These are called “bloom” planners.  I know at the beginning of a year, I look and look for planners that are cute and functional, and at times, have problems finding one.  I normally settle for one at Target and decorate the plain cover with stickers.  With these fabulous planners, there is no need to buy stickers because they come decorated with a pattern that you can choose to suit your personality!


They have planners suitable for students in middle school, planners for teachers, or even planners that would suit moms.

Bloom even has some accessories that you can use to match your planner cover, like this “to do” list matches it’s planner.


What’s even better is that they aren’t even very expensive!  Many of them are between $10 and $13 at the time of this post writing.  I know Office Depot sells planners many times that are around $20, and they aren’t even cute!  I put them back immediately!  The teacher planner, though, is priced around $26, but it is well worth it for the bulk of planning capabilities available.  Just look at the teacher planner features…

Brightly colored tabs…


Monthly and Weekly Planning Options…IMG_1885


…a place for student information and right next to the student information, a parent communication log!



And one of my favorites is the pretty design on the inside front and back cover.  Also, there is a handy pocket in the back!


There are also other nice goal setting feature pages embedded within each month.  I personally don’t know if I would use these.  However, this is a nice option.  I would probably do better writing my goals on the monthly calendar, so that it would always be in front of me.  Also, there are inspirational quotes sprinkled throughout the planner.

Some other nice features are a section of graph paper for possible seating charts, and a page for substitute teacher information (I wouldn’t want to leave my planner behind for the sub ;)).  This teacher planner could potentially be your go-to book where almost all of your important and often used information is stored–an organizational lifesaver!

Now, the moment you have all been waiting for, I teamed up with bloom to offer this free planner and mousepad to you.
