Disneyland is celebrating their 60th Anniversary this year with a Diamond Celebration. So I’m celebrating the event myself, down to my shimmering fingertips!

Disney-inspired Jamberry Sweepstakes Giveaway! Do you love nail art? Enter to win this fantastic Jamberry nail wrap prize package!

I love Jamberry for two reasons: 1. I love my gorgeous nails that last up to two weeks. 2. I love being a Jamberry Independent Consultant, which helps me earn money for my family and vacations. If you’re looking for a fun way to earn extra money, definitely consider joining my Jamberry team. We have a great support group online that makes selling sweet and very profitable.

What’s a Jamberry?

Jamberry is a heat-activated adhesive nail wrap. They come in fun and colorful designs. I change mine out every 10 days usually because my nails start growing out. There are handy video application tutorials on the Jamberry website. You can also find countless images and advice links for Jamberry on Pinterest on learning how to apply the wraps. I have found that after the heat application, trimming my wrap closely to the nail edge and using the “plastic baggie” method works perfectly for me!

Make Extra Money (in Little Ways that Really Add Up!) . Being a Jamberry Independent Consultant is a great way to earn money & have pretty nails while you work! Enter the Disney-inspired Jamberry Giveaway Sweepstakes on my website.

My colorful Disney-inspired Jamberry wraps for a trip to Walt Disney World!

I use Jamberry wraps on my toes as well and they last an astonishing 5 weeks! In fact I only have to take them off because my toenails had grown so much. Jamberry are easy to remove; Simply rub with coconut oil and use a cuticle stick to break the seal to remove. Sliding a dental floss pick under and gently working the wrap off with the coconut oil perfectly removes the wraps without any damage to your nail.

One sheet of Jamberry nails wraps gives you two manicures, two pedicures and extra for accents. You can't get that many salon treatments for such a wonderfully love price! Enter the Disney-inspired Jamberry Giveaway Sweepstakes! on my website.

One regular sheet of nail wraps can be used for two manicure applications and two pedicures. You’ll also have a few nail wraps left to use as accent nails. Jamberry wraps are longer lasting and less expensive than nails done at the salon, so they are extremely budget friendly. You can also mix and match coordinating wraps to create your own unique style!

ENTER TO WIN! – Jamberry Giveaway

As someone who is “Saving up for Disney”, I try to earn extra money in all sorts of different ways. I work full-time out of the home. I sew and sell appliqued clothing under the name Painted Butterfly Studio on Etsy. I teach tumbling at a local rec center. I use Ebates for all my online shopping. And now, I am also an Independent Consultant for Jamberry!

ENTER TO WIN! - Jamberry Giveaway

I tried Jamberry nail wraps in October of last year and my nails haven’t gone without a Jam on them ever since! I started off with French manicure white tips and they looked so polished and professional that I just had to buy more.

I have streamlined the application process and it takes me less than 45 minutes from start to finish to apply my Jamberry nail wraps. There is no waiting for them to dry which means I’m done and ready to go on with my life immediately! And the Jamberry wraps last for up to two weeks which never happens for me with polished nails. I’m usually a chipped mess with polish after just a few days, but my Jamberry wraps still look great.

What is Disney Bound? And a Mickey Necklace Giveaway!

Have you ever heard of Disney Bound? Maybe not, but I bet you’ve seen people doing it and just didn’t know it was a “thing”. According to the Disney Bound website, it means “using items you can find in your own closet or local mall, create looks outside of costumes or cosplay looks, which represent your favorite Disney character, while having fun with fashion!”

A quick search on Pinterest gives you tons of ideas. Some looks jump out at you and are recognizable right away. Others are more subtle. All of them are totally fun and creative! This is definitely a direction to go in if you find that your closet has become stagnant…add a few fun pieces and suddenly, you’re in character! (images from Pinterest)

Vivid Editions Disney-inspired Art and Posters – GIVEAWAY!

GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED…SEE BELOW FOR WINNER

Walking through the gates of Disneyland and into the tunnels, goosebumps cover my arms each time. Passing under this plaque, guests walk past posters that promote the Parks most popular attractions.

As shown in the movie Saving Mr. Banks, the posters used to line the fence in front of the floral Mickey (see this post from the Disney Parks Blog). And for as long as I can remember the posters have been there inside the tunnel as you “Leave Today and Enter the World of Yesterday, Tomorrow and Fantasy”.

2014-01-22 16.37.12

I have always admired the posters and wanted some of my own, so I was delighted to find these gorgeous, high-quality prints on Etsy by Vivid Editions. Now I can hang them in my own home and add a bit of Disney charm!

  

Alex at Vivid Editions was kind enough to send me four prints. Two of them I framed for my #DisneySide @HomeCelebration party decor. The other two I gifted to my party guests as prizes. My brother has a slight obsession with the Disneyland Railroad so he might get that poster as a gift very soon!

 

disneyside19

In addition to the vintage-looking Disneyland posters, Vivid Editions also has these gorgeous digital watercolor images in their Etsy shop. They are so sophisticated yet whimsical. I love the spirited movement implied on each colorful print!

   

Stop over at the Vivid Editions shop and find out how you can buy two & get one free, plus receive free standard USPS shipping! If you’re like me, you’re going to have a challenging time narrowing down the choices!


 

Would you like to win your own poster from Vivid Editions

They are offering my readers the chance to win their choice of one poster, any size, from their Etsy shop!

**ENTER THE GIVEAWAY**  GIVEWAY IS CLOSED – Congratulations to our winner, Leigh Ann B!

Open to USA & Canada only; prize will be shipped directly from Vivid Editions.
