Kaitlynn is getting quite good at doing my nails these days and I’ve perfected the art of holding a book and reading to the kids while she paints them. She loves it, it helps her listen, and I get a free manicure to boot!

Ruthie sent me some Jamberry Nail Wrap samples, so after Kaitlynn was finished doing my nails and I was finished with our read aloud time one day this past week, I surprised her by offering to give her a Jamberry manicure.

She loved it. And aren’t the colors on her nails so much fun?? This is definitely the perfect option for cute nails for someone like me who has almost zero artistic talent!jamberry

Ruthie is also offering a special offer for MoneySavingMom.com readers: Buy 3 sheets of wraps, get 1 FREE! You can browse all the styles at Ruthie’s site here.

Also, you can join Ruthie’s Jamberry Jazz Facebook Group here.

As I’ve gotten older, my hair has continued to get more and more wave in it — which has been a total surprise to this girl who once had straw straight hair! I got to try the Luxe Style Soft Touch Curls Mousse and the Soft & Defined Curls Gel Serum and found it worked really well to put it in my hair while it was wet, scrunch it up, let it air-dry some, and then pull it back into a ponytail.

This makes for a very quick and simple hairstyle that takes just minutes to pull off and gives my hair some volume and wave. Best of all, I can just pull it back into a ponytail or messy bun the next two days — no fuss and hardly any time spent in front of the mirror at all. That’s a total win for me!

Win a $100 Target Gift Card!

Would you like to win a $100 Target gift card? To win, just post on Twitter which Luxe Style Infusion you’d like to try. Be sure to use hashtag #NewLuxeStyle and tag me (@MoneySavingMom) in your post. I’ll choose a winner next week to win a $100 Target gift card.

Weekend Giveaway: 8×10 Portrait by Jo Diquez (4 Winners)


So, this may be my most favorite giveaway ever. And I truly mean that.

Because Jo Diquez made a portrait of my “baby” Silas based upon a picture of him and the result is the above. And is it not the most adorable picture you’ve ever seen?? Yes, I might be biased, but it just melts my heart so, so much!

And I wasn’t the only one who thought so. When Jo finished the print, she emailed us a scan of it and my team passed it around and we all oohed and awed over it because we were so impressed with Jo’s work.

These portraits would be such a unique and special gift to purchase for someone — a grandparent, another relative, or for yourself. Or, they would also be a great way to create a keepsake of a special picture — like a wedding picture or baby portrait.

You can see more samples of Jo’s work here. Or follow her on Facebook here.

Would you like to win an 8×10 portrait made by Jo Diquez? She’s generously giving away 4 8×10 portraits to my readers here this week. Each winner will get to choose one picture of one person for her to turn into an amazing drawing like you see of Silas above.

To enter to win, click on the graphic below. 4 winners will be chosen and posted next week.
