I'm Paid to Have Jammin' Nails

Kenzie's first Jamicure! 
When I first heard about Jamberry, I will admit I didn't jump on it. I wasn't huge on doing my own nails and with two little ones, I simply didn't have the time.  It wasn't until my daughter, Kenzie, asked for my husband and I to paint her nails that I finally reconsidered checking out Jamberry.  Kenzie seriously wouldn't have nail polish on her fingers for 5 seconds before she ended up smudging it....on everything. Me. The couch. My husband's legs. Everywhere! It was ridiculous. And I couldn't do it anymore.

Enter Jamberry. I had a friend who had been selling and would occasionally send me a reminder about it. I asked her some more questions regarding it.  When she told me the cost of the kit to become a consultant myself, I jumped on it.  I knew simply by hearing about this product that this was something that I wanted in on. And if nothing else, I would enjoy the discount and use the product with ease of mind on myself and my daughters.  
Vintage Deco wrap with Cardinal Lacqure

Black Strips with White French Tip (My 2nd application)

The company was started back in October 2010 by three sisters who wanted perfectly manicured nails but without paying expensive prices.  They created Jamberry, which is a resilient vinyl-based formula nail wrap that can be applied at home with a simple heat and pressure technique using a standard hairdryer.  They now have over 300+ designs and consultants and customers have the ability to create their own designs too!  

I created these for October Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Contact me directly if interested in ordering a sheet. 

Each sheet of nails wraps is enough to do 3-4 manicures/pedicures with extras left over for accent nails.  The wraps last up to two weeks on hands and 3-4 weeks on toes.  

​Here are some awesome facts about Jamberry. These alone make it a product that I am proud to stand by. ​

I love putting Jamberry nail wraps on. And I'm asked all the time about how difficult it is....and I love that question!  It's not difficult AT ALL!  All you need is the following to be able to accurately apply these wraps.

Here is what you need:

  • Jamberry Nail wraps
  • blow dryer or mini heater
  • nail polish remover
  • cotton balls
  • rubbing alcohol
  • cuticle pusher
  • nail clippers
  • nail scissors
  • tweezers

Watch the official Jamberry Nails application video to see just how simple the process is.  

Without a doubt, signing up was the best decision I made. I have been a consultant since late August 2014 and have already earned back my investment and then some!  I'm able to advertise the product all the time simply by wearing it.  And best of all - it's providing my family and I some financial freedom with the commission I am making.  If you are interested in learning more about becoming a consultant or would like to earn free rewards from hosting an online or catalog party, be sure to contact me at klyon78 at gmail dot com. I'm happy to share my love of this product with you and show you how you can earn 30-40% in commissions PLUS bonuses!

Currently I am running some great specials until the end of the month and I'd love to share them with you.
Happy Mail Day at my house!

FarFaria - An App Review

I've been sitting on the app FarFaria for a few months now. In between family and school beginning, I never had a chance to look at it but it's never been too FAR (haha - see what I did there) from my mind.  ;-)  I'm so glad that I finally did sit down and check it out.  My 3 year old daughter can't seem to get enough of it!

In case you haven't heard of it, FarFaria is an ebook app for children with hundreds of books for them to choose from to read.  You have the option to pay for the year (only $39.99) or by the month ($4.99).  They also have an amazing limited time offer going on right now - only $49.99 for LIFE!!!  Well worth the money if you ask me.  But let me explain why.

What makes this app so fabulous is the ability for children to follow along as the book is read aloud to them.....from the app!  That's right! My 3 year old was able to easily use the app, choose a book and click on "Auto play" and the book would be read to her.  How awesome is that?  We can even put a certain book in our favorites for her to access again later on.  In addition, the books show a reading level to make it simple to pick books that are right for her.

This would be perfect for teachers to use in a center in the younger grades or for a parent who is looking for an app related to books for their child.

I'm excited to be partnering up with FarFaria and to be able to give away a 3-month subscription to this app.  This will allow you to check it out and see what a great addition it could be in your classroom or home.

How would you use this app?

A Letter to My Former Self

Dear Former Self,

I know it's your first year of teaching. I know you are super nervous. What you are about to experience this year WAS NOT covered in your higher education courses.   But I'm here to tell you, it's okay.  You are going to survive this year.....and many more to come. And remember how you said at your first Back To School night that you couldn't wait until you had been teaching for at least ten years?  You know, because you thought it would be easier?  Well I'm going to share some things with you.

You were right. Being a teacher who can speak of past experience to parents at Back to School night is easier.  But the butterflies in your stomach that appear at least 4-6 hours before you know you have to present to the parents? No. Those don't go away. You still have them ten years later.  And the parents and all their questions?  No. They don't question you nearly as much as they did your first year.  But let's be honest. You are a better teacher.  You continue to become a better educator every single year.  And those parents who seem to question every move and decision you make in your still have them ten years later. You are just much better now at handling them. You don't take their questions as personally as you did your first year. And you take it all with a grain of salt. You do know what you are doing and your confidence shines through later in your teaching career.

And remember that parent that you swore was going to be the end of your teaching career during your this first year of teaching?  Well now look back on them with a sort of bittersweet fondness. They made you tougher. They made you better.  They helped lay the foundation for you to become a super organized teacher. And you wouldn't be where you are now ten years later without them.

So while you are stressing about how you are ever going to get all the planning done, the grading completed, the meetings, and the never ending paperwork finished, I'm here to tell you that ten years later you are still doing it. And you are doing it with a smile.  You love your job.

So stand up tall, first year former self. Because ten years later, you are going to be super proud of the teacher you were and have become.

You - Ten years later
