Valentine’s Day Gift!

Valentine’s Day Gift!

Happy February!

At the end of last month, Jamberry came out with a fun and exciting little product bundle for Valentine’s day including a lip gloss, lacquer, and nail wrap. I ordered it on the day it launched and today it arrived! By this time, the only hope for getting this bundle in time for actual Valentine’s Day is express shipping but let’s be honest… does a girl really need a holiday to pamper herself or be pampered by someone else? Didn’t think so.

So here’s the deal. Head here to snag up this bundle, worth $51, for only $40! You’ll automatically receive 1 Sheen Queen lip gloss (pink, color shifting, and bright) and 1 Sugar Mama nail lacquer (sheer pink, sparkly, and color shifting- great for a top coat on your fave color), along with your choice of any 1 of the Valentine’s Day nail wraps. Not going to get it in time for the big day? No worries. Most of the wrap designs are totally versatile! Not feeling the whole bundle? Grab the lip gloss, lacquer, or nail wraps individually for $18, $18, and $15, respectively!

Want a peek at these products and how they actually look ON (and see me looking like an excited little girl playing with make up while my Mini destroys the house just off screen)? Head to my Facebook page and check out my LIVE from tonight here!

Happy pampering and pink lips, ladies. 😉

How To Work From Home

How To Work From Home

At the beginning of last year I left my full time retail management job to work from home. It has been the best thing for myself and my family, especially my handsome little Mini Man. I get a LOT of questions and “I wish I could work from home” comments from people, particularly ladies wanting to be their own boss, spend more time with their kids, or make some extra cash on the side. For me, leaving my retail job has opened up the ability to help my father with his business and pursue the dream of opening a wedding and event venue with my sister. I want to take a minute to share what I actually do in my work from home businesses because, good news all, both jobs have a big NOW HIRING sign on the door… your door, consequently.

#1. I get paid to share photos and do Facebook live videos. I chat with ladies online and hang out with them and their friends in their homes. I make money by having pretty nails and giving other ladies pretty nails, too! I can benefit myself and my favorite charities by running informative and entertaining fundraisers. I am part of the most amazing team of ladies spread out across the country who encourage, support, and inspire me. I am my own boss. My child can join me in this business whenever I choose.

#2. I am a Fairy Godmother. I work to make one of the most important days of people’s lives absolutely perfect. I plan, organize, and design weddings. I calm nerves and create excitement. I relieve stress by sitting and chatting and brainstorming creative solutions. Occasionally I climb through church windows and drive around on golf carts. (Kidding. Mostly.) I have the honor of leading an incredible team of local ladies and encouraging and enabling them to reach their own goals. I make my own schedule and work as much or as little as I like but still have the support of a strong brand and company name behind me. This one, btw, gives me the occasional time AWAY from my child (cause mommas know we need that too 😉).

Just in case you were wondering… this could absolutely be you, too. If you’re interested, please Please PLEASE message me. Working from home is 100% a lot of hard work but it’s work I can do in my own home, in my own office or on my own couch, snuggled up with my baby (human or furry). I want to share more details and share the opportunity with you! Be a #BossBabe with me in 2018!!!

January Jamberry New Product!

January Jamberry New Product!

Happy new year and happy new month! 
One of my absolute favorite parts of a new month is getting my ‘JamGram’ email with new products and big Jamberry updates. (Seriously, I wake up to feed my baby and can be found scrolling my email at 2 am when I should be going back to bed. I may have a problem.) So here’s my monthly round up of new products and news with my thoughts on it all! 

COLOUR POP!

This month we have a blue-ish gray lacquer called “Northward”. If you had told me our Colour Pop was going to be gray this month I would have done the ultimate facepalm. Gray? GRAY?! But guess what? I. LOVE. IT. I love the light pastel hue and the way this shade is going to be absolutely gorgeous paired with pale pink. Can we say Valentine’s Day?!

The Colour Pop wrap for the month is a classy dusty rose and clear named “Ever Quest.” Jamberry tells me it is inspired by henna and features lace-like florals and geometrics. This is another winner in my book and would be perfect layered over “Northward” lacquer or even applied on its own. Ten points to this month’s Colour Pop selection. Coincidentally, last month’s Baltic Blue gel is also still available and is an incredible azure blue.

STYLEBOX

Here comes the Stylebox selection! (If you aren’t aware, Stylebox is a monthly subscription box offered by Jamberry. You choose 2 wraps from an exclusive selection of 6 for only $25 and can add other product, as well, to your ‘ships for free’ package!) This month’s theme is ‘Power Pink.’ It’s lovely and perfect for Valentine’s day. My top 2 are ‘Lady in Plaid’ and ‘Real Queen.’ I’m always up for a good plaid and the pink stripes with silver speak to me. 😉 I must admit, however, that none of these made me say I NEED THIS and I may skip this month in order to spend on products above. The company has been really hitting it out of the park lately so I’m grateful for seeing something new that doesn’t make me want to immediately throw my wallet at it. 😂😧

SEASONAL PRODUCT

Happy Valentine’s Day! These limited time love-themed wraps are adorable. ‘Hearts A Glow’ returns from last year and the rest are new designs. I’m a HUGE fan of all of these designs and really can’t pick a favorite. I love the variety of shades and finishes that offer a little bit of something for everyone. Let me also mention that the throwback ‘Hearts A Glow’ is a glow in the dark wrap… use them as you see fit. 😉😂

LIP LACQUER 

Ooooooh yes! Our awesome matte lip lacquers that came out in a (kind of expensive) bundle for the holidays are now available separately for only $25 each! It seems that for now they’ve decided to release the more mild ‘Charming’ and ‘Coy’ along with a brand new vibrant pink called ‘Flirt Alert’. I tested out the neutral colors back when they were first released in a bundle and really like the product. They are soft and smooth with no funky smells or harsh chemical taste or feel while maintaining the matte look. Ladies immediately started begging for seperates. We asked and Jamberry listened. Thank you, home office.

PICK YOUR PASSION

Jamberry has officially announced that the $25 ‘Pick Your Passion’ digital starter kit is a permanent option after 2 months of testing! I’m super excited for this, as it gives ladies the option to join at a low cost and decide exactly where they want to focus their energy! 

And so completes the beginning-of-the -month round up! You can check out all these products and opportunities in greater detail at slyocum.jamberry.com and contact me any time with questions!

I’m excited for January and all the new things it brings us and looking forward to even MORE exciting news and announcements from our home office. Keep an eye out for updates, ladies. They’re gonna be good!
