Jamberry Nail Wraps- Review Video

Recently one of my old law school friends had a Jamberry nail wrap party at her house and invited me. I don't do my nails and I don't use nail polish but I went anyway to support her in her new endeavor. After she applied a nail wrap to one of my nails as a demo, I thought, "Seems pretty simple. Let me buy a sheet." I went home and put the nail wraps on the rest of my finger nails. They were cute, inexpensive and easy to apply. I went about my daily life and to my surprise they remained pretty much intact even though my hands remain pretty active. They last almost 13 days until I removed them while filming this video for you!

Laura is an Independent Jamberry Nails Consultant. I am not. I'm just sharing my experience with these wraps and helping out a friend. I decided to film a video in case you are looking for an alternative to regular ol' nail polish or have been considering giving these nail wraps a try.

Me personal opinion on Jamberry nail wraps:
• They hold up to my very rustic and busy lifestyle.
• They are quick and easy to apply and remove.
• My nails showed no signs of damage after removal of wraps.
• No stinky smells or drying time.
• Although I don't believe they are completely "non-toxic"because they are made of PVC, I prefer them over conventional nail polish.
• I don't plan to have a set of nail wraps on all the time but for the occasional pop of color or special occasional I'm okay with wearing them.

Now, I'll leave you with the video review where Laura and I tell you all about Jamberry nail wraps. I'll share my experience and you'll learn how to properly apply and remove them. You'll also learn about the wraps, how many come to a sheet, how many applications you can get from one sheet, etc. If you've never heard of these wraps or tried them I think you will enjoy this video!

Remember, if you want to give Jamberry nail wraps a try I would appreciate it if you used this link so Laura and I can get credit for it. Thanks for your support!

Kiwi Crate Box- Video Review with my kids!

{Disclaimer: This post includes affiliate links which means if you purchase any products using the links I've included I will earn some $$. Thanks for your support!}

My kids and I received our first Kiwi Crate box recently and we had a blast recording our first experience with it just for you! This video would be great to watch with your kids or grandkids and let them see first hand what Kiwi Crate is all about and to decide if this is something they'd like to do.  Honestly, what kid is going to say no to getting a goodie box full of arts & crafts activities in the mail?! My kids really enjoyed their first box and are already asking me for more!

Click to give Kiwi Crate a try today!

Here's the 411 on Kiwi Crate:

Kiwi Crate is a box that "includes all the materials and inspiration for projects related to a theme such as music, gardening, dinosaurs, or colors. Projects may include arts and crafts, science activities, imaginative play and more." The crates are designed for children ages 3-8 but they are now releasing a whole slew of other crates (Tinker Crate, Doodle CrateKoala Crate) designed for different age groups.

This fun little box would make an amazing gift for any child! If your grandkids live across the country or you have a godchild you don't see as often as you'd like you can sign up for a one, three, six or 12 month subscription. What a great birthday/holiday present that would be! I bet you they would be so grateful to get a Kiwi Crate box subscription and you can sign them up with just a few clicks! You can learn more about the gift subscriptions HERE. 

{Canadian friends: Kiwi Crate ships to Canada too! Learn more here. }

Now, I'll leave you with the video of my kids and I opening our first Kiwi Crate box! I'm gonna warn you, though... there is a whole lot of cuteness, education and fun happening in this video! Watch it with your kids. I think they'll really enjoy it!

Singer 4443 Sewing Machine Review & Giveaway

Happy National Sewing Month!

In honor of National Sewing Month I've teamed up with Tuesday Morning to bring you a video review of the Singer 4443 Heavy Duty sewing machine. We're even giving away an autographed (by me!) machine to one lucky winner!

You could win this autographed machine!

This was my first time ever using this machine and I share my experience with you in this video review. My first impression of the machine was that it was simple, attractive and had some good weight to it.  But the real deal comes when we put it to work!  When I review a new sewing machine I like to use all the basic functions, see if it has any fancy features and then put the stitches to work on a variety of different fabrics.

To get the complete review on the Singer 4443 Heavy Duty sewing machine be sure to watch the video. You will see me put it to the ultimate heavy duty test of sewing through multiple layers of denim. To see how it did click HERE. 

I have 14 sewing machines myself (right now!) and although I won't be keeping one of these for myself I was very impressed with the stitch quality, speed and features on this machine. For the lowest price be sure to check it out at your local Tuesday Morning, while supplies last! 

Now for the best part-- the giveaway! To enter for your chance to win an autographed Singer 4443 please use the Rafflecopter widget below. This giveaway is only open to U.S. participants and will remain open for a total of 3 weeks. For the complete terms and conditions please refer to the widget below.

Good luck!
