Jamberry Joyful Holiday

December is upon us already, and I don't know about you, but things are full steam ahead Holiday mode around here.  We're getting the tree this weekend, our house is lit up, and despite the warm weather, I've probably already had gallons of hot chocolate.  When I was a teenager, I would observe the holidays by dying my hair to match the holiday (green for St. Patrick's Day, pink for Valentine's, red and green for Christmas - it was so much fun!!!).  Nowadays, I don't have that kind of time or budget, so instead I like to do holiday manicures and I'm LOVING all the different Christmas nail wraps from Jamberry!

I'm sure you've all seen the intricate and highly detailed nail art floating around Pinterest, and I don't know about you, but as much as I love all those fancy nails, I don't have the time, patience, or skill to artistically paint my nails (or the money and time to pay someone else to) only to have them chip and be ruined the next day.  Jamberry to the rescue!!!

For those who might not be familiar with just what a Jamberry is, let me explain:  Jamberry nail wraps are salon quality nail wraps that are heat activated and pressure sealed to the nail.  They last about 2 weeks on fingers and 6 weeks on toes.  They're non-toxic, chemical free, animal friendly, vegan, and with proper removal, won't damage your nails.  Basically, they're AMAZING high tech nail stickers.

Right now I'm wearing three of the wraps from Jamberry's Joyful Holiday gift set:  Joyful Laughter (the bows on a tinted background), Joyful Celebration (the red sparkle), and Joyful Season (the snowflake pattern), and even though these bad boys will last about 2 weeks on my nails (I know, right?!?), I'll probably be changing them out every few days so I can WEAR ALL THE JAMS!!!!

Jamberry wraps also make great stocking stuffers!  One sheet of wraps has enough wraps for 2 manicures and 2 pedicures with some leftover for accent nails, and Jamberry wraps are always Buy 3, Get 1 FREE, so you can pick some out for yourself and a friend!!!  If you want to order for Christmas delivery, make sure to get your orders in by December 10th for delivery by the 24th.  Head on over to my Jamberry consultant site to place your order.

I'm also giving away a full sheet of Poinsettia wraps to one lucky reader!!!  Check them out on my friend, Sonja (so sparkly!!!).  We paired them with Peppermint Patty, and I think they look so festive!!!  What do you think?  Head on over to my site,, and let me know what your favorite holiday wraps are, and make sure to enter the giveaway!!!

I am a very lucky lady because I was chosen by Influenster to test the new Keurig 2.0 brewing system!!  I love coffee.  I am completely useless without it, so to say I was excited to be picked as part of this campaign is a bit of an understatement.  I'm already the proud owner of a regular Keurig (and in case you live under a rock, a Keurig brews single cups of coffee instead of a whole pot), and now I own it's big brother, the Keurig 2.0.  Sweet.

What's different about the Keurig 2.0 is that it can brew both single cups of coffee and carafes of coffee (the carafes hold up to 4 cups of coffee).  The 2.0 has smart brewing technology and can tell if you're using a single k-cup or a larger k-carafe and with the touch of a button, you're brewing the perfect cup or cups of coffee.  There's a touch screen display with programmable date and time, plus the 2.0 remembers your preferred settings so you don't have to think too hard pre-caffeine.

 What I really love about the 2.0 is there's a larger reservoir for water, it's quieter when it's brewing (a plus when your sleeping child is just on the other side of the kitchen door), it brews carafes (hello, enough coffee at once for guests), and it's just all around more sleek and futuristic looking (does your brewer have touchscreen technology?).  The only drawback for me is that I can't use my refillable k-cup coffee pod thingy.  Dennis and I have some off-brand of reusable k-cup and we use our own coffee in it instead of the disposable pods - this is for two reasons - 1) it's MUCH cheaper than buying individual k-cups and 2) we're creating less waste.  So to continue to use the 2.0 on a long term basis, we're going to have to find a solution to using our own k-cups.  I admit I haven't even gone out looking for a different variety of refillable k-cups, but I'm sure there's something out there that will work (and if not right now, then somebody will come out with something in the near future, so I'm not too worried about it).

Included in the package were several k-cups and k-carafes, and even though I do like to use my refillable k-cup, the convenience of not having to think or do at all before having my morning cup was pretty nice.  Did I mention how useless I am before my morning coffee?  Pretty damn useless.  I really liked the variety of k-cups included, too, there was everything from flavored coffee (which I really like, but Dennis - not so much - so I'm able to have some fancy coffee while Dennis has his manly black coffee), different teas, and even some cider (which I'm waiting for cooler weather to try - so I might not ever get to try it #houstonweathersucks)

I'll say, Keurig really stepped up their game with the 2.0.  All the convenience of single cup brewing with the added bonus of the ability to brew pots of coffee.  Win-win.  Add in a sleek new design, smart brewing technology, and a fancy touch screen, and you've got me, hook, line, and sinker!  Plus, my cats approve.  You can't go wrong if the cats approve.

You can get your own Keurig 2.0 right here!!!

I received this product for free for testing and review purposes.  All opinions are my own!!!
