Jamberry Nail Wraps Giveaway

 Giveaway Picture (1)

This February Wife.Mother.Teacher is bringing you a review & giveaway of Jamberry

Nails, provided by Julia at Jamberry Nails. Julia is an independent consultant & got ahold of us last

month to see if we could partner on an upcoming giveaway and we were thrilled to say


 I know that Jamberry is the rage in so many circles they had just not gotten to me yet, and this was a good chance to try them out and see if they would be all that I expected.  Having had my nails done many times, I knew that if I spent the money on a manicure it would be worth it to try these out and see what I thought.

I had heard of Jamberry Nails prior to her message but had never tried them personally. Julia sent me

the Love Spell design (pictured below) just in time for Valentine’s Day. (Psst… if you’re dying to

try these out right away, you can click over to Julia’s site to see Love

Spell plus hundreds of other great designs.)

My nails

Aren’t they adorable?! I fell in love as soon as I saw the design and knew these were the ones

for me. :)


To get started, lets answer a few basic questions you might have about Jamberry, starting



What Are Jamberry Nail Wraps? 


Jamberry nail wraps are the latest way to

accessorize your fingers and toes. Say goodbye to polish mess and dry times with this new nail

treatment that can be applied at home in about fifteen minutes.




I’m A Little Picky About My

Nail Designs, Will There Be Something To Fit Me? 


Jamberry has over 300 designs from French

Tips to Sparkles, Collegiate to Sorority, even Solid Colors to Animal Instinct. Trust me -

there will be a design for you!

How Long Do They



Jamberry says their wraps will last up to

two weeks on fingers & a month on toes.


But Aren’t They Super



Actually, no. For those of you that get

professional manicures or fake nails applied, you’re probably spending more than Jamberry nails would

cost you to do yourself. Plus they are Buy 3, Get 1 FREE, so that makes it super affordable!

How Will I Know That I’ll Like



You’re in luck – unlike so many other beauty companies, Julia

offers a FREE sample of

their product so that you can give it a try before investing in a full set. :)





What can I say y’all, I’m thrilled with my Jamberry

Nails! In my pre-Total Money Makeover days I enjoyed pampering myself

regularly – which included getting my nails done – but in recent years that has been an expense I gave up

as we work on getting out of debt. So here’s my great news… even someone in the midst of paying off

debt could afford to splurge on Jamberry Nails every so often – they’re only $15 dollars and that will get

you 2 manicures, 2 pedicures plus a few extra to have as accent nails. Worst

case scenario, that’s a maximum of $3.25 for a full manicure or pedicure that

would cost you closer to $40 at the salon when you get the B3G1 offer. :) 


Aside from cost, I’m totally pleased with the product

itself. My nail wraps came packaged in a little envelope for easy storage between manicures and

included very clear (and short – thank you!) directions. Julia knew I was a Jamberry virgin so she also

directed me to a wonderful video tutorial that I found very helpful. (The video has GREAT ideas,

that the directions on the nail wraps didn’t include – if you’re a Jamberry Virgin too, I would totally check

it out.) 


In total, it took me 1 hour and 7 minutes from start to

finish. I know what you’re thinking, “But Tiffany, I don’t have that much time to do my nails, are you

crazy?!” Well here’s the deal, the first 20 minutes was spent just filing my nails, buffing, taking off old

nail polish, etc. (Meanwhile I kept playing that tutorial video on repeat, so I’m pretty sure my distraction

with the video slowed me down a bit, LOL.) I knew that I was applying these as a part of a review. It’s

really important to me that I give my full honest opinion on a product so I knew that I needed to give my

all to this application and that takes time. And lastly, I was a Jamberry virgin – I didn’t know what I was

doing and ended up being super meticulous because of it. Now that I’ve put on Jamberry nails

once, I’m certain I would apply them much faster and honestly when you consider drying time

of normal nail polish its really not that much different.


My nail wraps have been on for 5 days and they still look

fantastic. I did notice that 2 or 3 had a little bit of lifting at the tips, but I think that’s because this

was my first application and I struggled a bit with my right hand. I just used the nail file to smooth them

out and it hasn’t been a problem. At the rate they’re going I expect them to last at least 10 days.

If I was wearing nail polish it would totally be chipped by now so this is a win in my




What do you think? I *LOVE* them! That being said

there were a few issues I ran into that I will try to avoid in round two… 


1) Use a heater instead of a blow dryer if at all


Jamberry sells a cute little heater, but you could use just about any heater you

already own. The blow dryer was a pain because it took both hands and even on low the nail wrap

would get blown around and get stuck to my tweezers. Super annoying. Next time I’ll be using a heater

instead. :)


2) Cut apart your Jamberry Nail Sheet ahead of


This will help you pick the right size for each of your finger nails

a little easier – I didn’t do this and as you can see from this totally blurry picture (sorry!) on a few nails I

picked the wrong size nail wrap and ended up with a tiny gap at the very edge of my nail. (Honestly my

husband couldn’t even see them until I pointed them out so you’d be fine without being super picky

about it, but I wanted to make sure I gave full disclosure on this review. Keep in mind that I’m pulling

down my skin with my thumb in this picture.) 

 blurry nail with arrow

3) Before applying my second set of Jamberry nails for

Valentine’s I’ll be investing in a cheap pair of manicure scissors. 

I used kitchen scissors & nail clippers and it was a bit of a

nightmare trying to do my right hand since you can’t actually use right handed scissors very well with

your left hand. (Jamberry includes them in their

optional application kit, FYI, but you don’t need an application kit to apply the nails. That

being said, the winner of this giveaway will not only get the nail wrap of their choice, but an application

kit as well!)


Overall, I give Jamberry Nail Wraps an A. They are fun,

beautiful, easy to apply, long lasting & budget friendly – not to mention that Julia from Jamberry

Nails is an absolute peach!  


It’s Giveaway



One lucky winner will receive a Jamberry Application Kit &

the Nail Wrap design of their choice. This giveaway is open to anyone with a US or Canada mailing

Drain Wig, Best Solution to Hair Drain Problems!





My daughter and I have long hair and it seems like every friend she has that stays over and has a shower has long hair, I cannot even begin to count the number of times I have had to dig hair out of our drain so that it will run again.



I was beydrain-wig-step-1ond excited that someone came up with a fantastic solution to this problem that works on every kind of drain. It is called the Drain Wig  I have seen the drain covers that are supposed to keep the hair out, only they don’t do it well and kids, have a tendency to kick them out-of-the-way because it does slow things down a bit too.







The DrainWig has been a lifesaver for my pipes and shower drains!  You very simply take about 2 minutes to thread this down into your drain, and you are done for two months.  When it is time for you to clean all of the hair out you simply grab the CLEAN plastic piece that is outside of the drain and pull it up and put the whole thing in the trash.  The amount of hair that this catches is amazing.  I could not believe how it just trapped the hair so that it never even got into the main drain.drain-wig-step-2

I also have two long hair dogs that I like to wash in my tub during the colder months, and because we have kids with allergies we do it weekly, for the first time we did nothave any issue with their hair clogging the drain.  The Drain Wig works.








People could be reading this and thinking this is a little silly, and honestly until I tried it, I thought it was as well, but when I started my blog it was about reviewing products that would help people save money and spend the money they do have wisely.  I personally do not believe that a plumber to clean out hair clogs is a smart way to spend your money.  This Drain Wig works and it is clean and easy to use, the whole thing just goes in the trash when you it is full and you never have to see it again.  You can purchase these at their website and if you use this special promo code you will get $5 off – enter in the promo code box at check out the code “FIZZ5” (that is a number 5 at end – not an “S”)

The fabulous folks at Drain Wig are also giving away a four pack here to one of our readers! You do not want to miss this great new solution to hair in your drains. That giveaway will be starting soon!

One of those days with too much to do!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Green Dot for Allison+Partners. All opinions are 100% mine.


download (1)


So today was one of those days where I just had too much to do. I had to get up early, and then when I went to make coffee I found that I was out of those great cups for the coffee maker and had to make it the old fashioned way, which of course took at least an hour. Then to get the kids both up, fed, dressed (you know with shoes on), and take them to the doctor for the respective check ups.small_360282783

Everyone in the car and off we went, and waited, and waited and waited, they are both cranky they don’t want to cooperate and I did one of those things that you should never do unless your forced to; I weighed myself ugh! Now I have to go to the store and shop for healthier foods, get some socks for the little man and of course always have to get the milk, bread and some fresh fruit.

I really don’t want to have to go to two stores and the bank and unbuckle and re-buckle both kids at all three places, and then I remembered. You can do all of this at WalMart locations that offer GoBank. I could deposit my check, I can buy socks and get groceries including fresh fruits and veggies and only buckle and unbuckle the two kids one time.

If you have these days as often as I do, you can probably use the same solution, and try GoBank. You can use it on your phone and you have full access and control of your money at participating Walmart locations. They also have over 42,000 fee-free ATM’s. You can even do direct deposits and photo deposits into your checking account through them. GoBank does have some fees, but many of the fees can be avoided and they are really simple to understand. And they don’t do a credit check to get a card, but they will need to verify your identity. If you need to have checking account access where you need it and how you need it, this is a great alternative to traditional banks.



If you need a bank account that can help you save time, energy and hassle, check out GoBank. They can help you stick to your budgets of both time and money and keep things on track for you.

Have you tried Mommy Bliss Gripe Water?



Every parent needs to have certain things around the house when they bring a new baby home.  Diapers, crib, clothes, baby wash, baby lotion, and blankets, but what many people forget is that sometimes these little people have tummy aches, fevers and pain and just general gripes and not feeling well.  Mommy Bliss has the answers you are looking for when it comes to these things.


Mommy Bliss sent us some gripe water so that we could try it out and see what we thought of it when David was born, and over the past few months we have actually had quite a few times when we needed to use it.  For us, grip water was not the magic bullet, he has been found to have multiple food allergies and intolerance as well as severe reflux, that he was actually hospitalized for, but it did come in very handy lately.

As we have gotten a better handle on things with his diet, we still have times when we trial a food and he is not necessarily allergic to it, but his little tummy is not happy about it either.  We deal with this a few times a month and we have tried the Mommy Bliss Gripe Water, and it really does seem to settle his stomach down and help with some of the pain and discomfort that he has.  

Even in a baby as complex as ours we found the Mommy Bliss Gripe water to be very helpful for when he just did not feel well, when he had some trapped gas or was starting to teeth.  We even used it when he had his first immunizations to help settle him in for the night.

If you have a baby that has the run of the mill stomach ailments this product works very well for that, and you may find it one of the things that you love having around when you need it.

Some of the best things about Mommy Bliss Gripe Water is that it is an all-natural herbal supplement that  is a safe and effective to ease stomach discomfort often associated with colic, gas and hiccups.  It is a no brainer that you are going to want this waiting at home when you bring home your little one!  You can find this on their website as well as many local retailers.

Water Liberty Water Purification


Everyday people are becoming more and more concerned with what is going into their foods and then hence their bodies. I know this is a very important topic because there are a lot of people with sicknesses and problems that just don’t seem to make sense with the way they are living their lives.
Heavy metals, preservatives, even minerals and fluorides are starting to make people question what it is that they are going to do with the foods they eat and water they drink.
Water Liberty has been working hard to find solutions to help make your drinking water safe and better for you.

The mission of Water Liberty is to spread cutting edge research on water science and to bring life changing water technologies to everyone. Here at Water Liberty, a team of researchers are passionate about offering educational information through Ebooks, videos, blogs and social media. With an understanding of water’s healing properties, we believe this translates into actions to cleanse, purify and transform water to its pristine state.

When it comes to drinking water think about how many systems in your body that helps run, our bodies are made up of about 60 percent water. Bodily fluids are mostly water, and the functions of these bodily fluids include digestion, absorption, circulation, creation of saliva, transportation of nutrients, and maintenance of body temperature. All very important things. You want the best of the best and as we are all learning bottled water may not be the right answer.

Water Liberty sent me a 2 ounce bottle of Adya Clarity, this is used specifically for water to purify and enhance water. I loved that it is specifically made to protect me and my family from the dangers which are lurking in our drinking water. You simply add a few drops to a pitcher of water and it is transformed into clear, clean and pure water for your consumption.

All of their products are patented, licensed, and certified – which are proven to be safe and effective for consumption. The complete process of manufacturing and packaging of each individual product are all compliant to standards. They also hold scientific and clinical excellence by conducting clinical trials and lab tests to support evidence based product. This is not a fly by night company just looking to make a buck.

When this is added to your water, you can see the impurities drop to the bottom of the container and frankly what seemed clean to you is not and it is disturbing to say the least. There are so many things in our water that are just not good for us and we are daily drinking it, to be healthier, how does that make sense? Adya Clarity is the solution you need to clear your water for good. They even guarantee their products.


The one thing I think that surprised me the most was the clean taste that the water had.  I have pretty good tap water, but I did notice a definite cleaner and clearer taste in my water while using this.  I think that I am going to continue using this for a bit and see if my results continue to get better.  I actually feel better while drinking this water and I am also sleeping better.  It is too soon in my opinion to really attribute it all to the Adya Clarity but, I do believe it has something to do with it.

Check out their website and also their social media channels for more exciting information from them.

The Best Booster Chair theBoost Plus by Prince Lionheart!




There comes a time when toddlers just do not want to be in a high chair anymore, but a regular chair is too low and they can hardly get their little hands up to eat their food.  What is a parent to do?

Prince Lionheart sent me a fabulous solution to this problem we were facing here in our home.  They have theBoost Plus now to make this transition as easy as possibleboostplus1.  It is so easy to use and so sturdy we were just taken with it right away.  Destini loved this chair instantly!

It attached firmly to just about any chair with their dual strap system and it is really sturdy, the base actually almost melds right into the chair to form a solid solution for kids of this age to sit on for meals or even craft time.  It also comes with a three point harness to keep them secure inside the seat. 7030 boost plus grey

theBoost Plus wont ruin your furniture either with its slip and scratch-resistant bottom, you can even take it over to a friends and not have to worry about your not having a safe place and they wont have to worry about their furniture being messed up.


There is a removable tray that comes with theBoostPlus and it comes in very handy if you are using the tray outside during a party or bar b que, and there is not a solid table for them to set their food on. 

It made her feel like a big girl and at the same time she loves being able to reach and eat comfoboostplusratably.  It is a high gloss finish and so easy to clean, I spray it down with Method cleaner and everything just wipes right up.  This chair is made for kids that are about 12 months and Destini is now 3 and it works perfectly for her.  I think as soon as she grows out of it, David will be ready to use this.  


Anything that saves room and keeps things neat and clean I am always a huge fan of.  I really like theBoost Plus and I think you will love it too!

The Survive Outdoors Longer® Escape™ Bivvy is nothing less than a revolution in backcountry shelters. The complaint with most ultra-light emergency shelters is the same: condensation builds up inside as you get warm, leaving your clothes soaking wet. With the Escape™ Bivvy, condensation is no longer an issue, and you never again have to choose between staying dry and staying warm. The proprietary fabric lets moisture escape at the same time that it keeps rain, snow, and wind on the outside – all while reflecting your body heat back to you. Waterproof seams plus a drawstring hood closure and side zip mean you can seal out the elements entirely or use the bivvy like a traditional sleeping bag, and the high-visibility orange exterior makes it easy for rescuers to spot you even in areas with high tree cover.

Made with Care

We make Farmer’s Bounty® Dog Food one batch at a time, to help retain the nutrients, goodness and flavor. Our food is made very differently than all other dry dog foods. The cage-free chicken we use is sourced within 100 miles of our plant and is prepared soon after harvest, allowing your dog to taste the freshness. We then add high-quality steam rolled oats to help supply energy and soluble fiber. We accent our recipe with a bounty of other wholesome ingredients to help ensure your dog gets 100% complete and balanced nutrition to help him thrive.

We do not use the same intense heat and high pressure processing as most other dry dog foods. Instead, we take extreme care in the handling and cooking of our ingredients, in order to help protect amino acids from heat damage. This takes knowledge as well as patience, but making great dog food can’t be rushed.

We truly believe that after feeding Farmer’s Bounty® Dog Food for just a few weeks, you’ll see the difference in the way your dog looks and feels, from coat to muscle tone, from alert eyes to overall vitality.

Bring the goodness from the farm home to your dog. Farmer’s Bounty Country Slices are a nutritious way to train and reward your dog. Share your love with these delicious, satisfying treats.


Goodness for taste, health and life:
• Made with real cage-free chicken and sweet potatoes
• Great for training and rewarding your dog
• No wheat, corn or soy
• Delicious Country Slices your dog will love!
• Made in the USA
