It’s Friday! We made it!!
Item #1 Jord Watch, a Wooden Watch — 1 Winner
I have a fantastic prize package today with 3 winners. I was contacted by Jord Watch a few weeks ago to test out a wooden watch. I don’t normally wear watches, but instead rely on my phone to tell
But part of my New Year’s Resolution for this past year (which is almost over, sigh) was to become “more of a grown-up”, and it appears that Real Grown Ups wear watches.
I love this watch. It’s bigger than something I’d pick out on my own, but that’s because I absolutely stink at knowing what works fashion-wise and what doesn’t. It’s absolutely PERFECT and classy and is definitely a Statement Piece. I needed to go get it sized at the watch place in the mall — and I’m glad I did that rather than fool around with a mini screwdriver on my own — the watch is super well-well made and I would have messed it up.
This is probably one of the nicest pieces of jewelry I own, outside of my wedding ring.
Paul, from Jord Watch has graciously agreed to give away a Jord Watch to one of you, too, so we can be Twinnies!
He said that a winner will receive a $129 gift certificate to pick out a watch and also receive Free Shipping.
This is the one that I picked out, but their website has quite a few options. The gift certificate is for $129 though — if you’d like a fancier one, you’ll have to pay the difference.
If you are looking for a Holiday present for a special someone this year (or you are shopping for yourself, because HEY, you deserve something cool!) I’d highly recommend Jord Watch. The watches are so very well made, and are really very cool looking.
ITEM # 2 — Jamberry Nail Wraps Set — 2 Winners
As I mentioned up above, I’ve been trying to be More Grown Up this past year, which means at the ripe age of 38-in-three-weeks I need to really stop biting my nails when I’m nervous or anxious. It’s been a life-long habit, and one that I’m kind of embarrassed about.
I can go weeks at a time without biting, but then something happens and I forget and all of a sudden I’m spitting DNA out all over the living room.
Gee, Steph, that’s a lovely image…
ANYHOW, I get my nails done here and there for special occasions or for when I’m going to be on TV or doing some sort of food demonstration. Which really only means that 4 times a year or so my nails look decent.
ENTER Jamberry Nails.
These things are awesome. If you aren’t familiar, they are Nail Wraps that you attach to clean nails and then use heat (a hair dryer) to get them to adhere. FOR A SUPER LONG TIME.
What I love about them is that I can be crazy rough on my hands and nails (here I am after painting the upstairs bathroom):
but the Nail Wraps stay on and stay looking great. I am definitely the type of person who chips her nails while getting into the car after paying to get them done. I like that I can wash dishes, garden, open soda cans, etc. and at the end of the day the nail wraps still look pretty darn good.
And they are economical. One sheet of wraps costs about $15 and they are good for 2 manicures AND 2 pedicures, with a few extra strips in case you mess up or need a new one.
that is SUCH a super value.
AND THEY LAST FOR 3 WEEKS!
The colors show up differently on your computer screen than they do In Real Life. My nails above are with Boysenberry — which on screen looks lighter than what it is — which is a perfect deep burgundy, which is awesome for fall.
My friend Jen is a Jamberry Consultant (you know Jen from A Year of Cocktails) and she is happily giving away 2 sets of Jamberry Nail Wraps for you today — each worth $15.
If you are a lucky winner, I’ll get you in touch with Jen to pick out your new wraps! If you aren’t a winner, but would still like to order the wraps, you should! They are fun and make fantastic stocking stuffers!
I have 3 winners that I will select randomly in 10 days — this means that this giveaway will run from today until Monday, November 17 at 5pm pacific.
The first winner randomly selected (I use a software program to pick the winner(s) ) will win a Jord Watch, and the second and third winners will receive a free manicure and pedicure from Jamberry Nail Wraps.
