JAMBERRY

Jamberry Nails : C/O Elizabeth Adam

Hey Lovers!
Today we are talking about Jamberry Nails!
If I don't get my nails done at the salon, this is a DIY chore that I have a hard time keeping up with. I just don't have the patience to do them myself and then wait for them to dry! Haha!

Suffice it to say that vinyl nail wraps are a great alternative! I have been using vinyl wraps for a while (the ones from err.. walmart) but then my girlfriend introduced me to Jamberry Nails which is exclusive to vinyl nail wraps with tons of options and designs! I definitely invite you to try them! They are super easy to do and they last a long time!

HOW TO!
1) Start with clean nails and push back the cuticles.

2) Match your nail to the nail wrap that best fits.

3) Using a tweezers, peel off the nail wrap and warm it up for 3-5 seconds. Up to 10 seconds for artificial nails.

4) Quickly place the nail wrap on the inner end of your nail.

  • Press down firmly.
  • Pull and push down covering all edges and angles of the nail.


5) With a nail file, trim off excess with a downward motion on the edge of the nail.

6) Apply heat and pressure to the wrap again until it is bonded to the nail!


BEING CAREFUL!
Be super careful when applying heat to the vinyl when its already on your nail!

Day 2 of my Brickyard Buffalo Item! I adore my watermelon colored pencil skirt! Stretchy pencil skirts is the way to go ladies. Its snug enough that it keeps everything in place but comfy enough you can still walk the walk in it!

Even though Utah is completely ignoring Spring, I am too desperate to wear brighter colors.  I think besides my flower obsession, the beautiful colors that Spring brings is one of my favorite things of this Season. I do however try to be careful how I mix my brights and pastels because I do not want to resemble a cupcake, so I pared my look with warm props!

And ladies, friends don't let friends buy fake things! Not that one should just throw their money out the window but precisely because money has its value, it's always better to put it towards something that actually holds value. Like my Fashionphile Louis! Fashionphile is a place where you can purchase delicately-preowned luxury brands! YOU'RE WELCOME! ;) Which I have to thank Amber for, otherwise this clueless  girl would not have know about this fashion wonder!

Hope everyone has a fun weekend!

I am so so glad that military fashion is coming around for another year! I just started warming up to it! Haha! Lately I am very much into faux tomboy looks! I think my little sister is rubbing off on me! 

Brickyard Buffalo  was cool enough to send me the top, earrings and several more items I will be featuring throughout this week and next! Its funny how things happen because Brickyard Buffalo has been on my radar for a while and then they contacted me and made my day! Haha!

Holy smokes! I'm back. Or so I think!
March has truly been mad! First I started a new job and for most of March I was on training schedule meaning I got out of work at 10pm. Then my sister has kinda moved in with Terr and I for the remainder of her pregnancy. 

My sister is 37 weeks pregers and living by herself, and because I am a paranoid big sissy I kinda made her move in with us until she pops! Just this past week when I finally got a normal work schedule, she started having crazy contractions so I've been running around making sure her apartment, car, and hospital bag is baby-ready.

Last week her water was leaking so we went to the Hospital, only to be sent back home after an hour because her contractions weren't close enough! She is 1 CM dilated and 70% ephased, and at 37 weeks most doctors consider you full term. We have been going crazy waiting for her to have the baby! We are so anxious and excited!
She is having a girl. Her name is Victoria Blaire.

I also want to thank everyone for the most amazing birthday wishes and compliments!! I wish I could respond back to everyone because you were all so sweet! I celebrated my birthday on Sat 22nd. I went shopping with my mom & sister and we got our nails done too. Then Terr and I went to sushi, to a shopping party, and to the movies! Busy day haha!

I have to brag about my mom for a sec (who basically sponsored this post, haha) She asked me what I wanted for my bday, and I truly had no clue! Finally I said I wanted perfume and then she shows up with a Victoria Secret bag filled with 4 fragrance bottles and two lip tints! Yeah she is the best!
