#HintingSeason Jabra Headphones from Best Buy are perfect for your New Year's Resolution!

Look at this woman. What do you suppose she's thinking about? I think she's thinking about how she's about to kick some serious butt, crank up her tunes, and pound out her frustrations while staying healthy! 

Am I this woman? Hell, no. Not yet, anyway. Do I want to be? Yes. I want to be fit and healthy. I had started a 5.0 mile a day walking habit last year, then fizzled. I'm getting older though and I need to do something about the weight, the blood numbers, etc. And I sure would love to have guidance instead of getting lost to my book or music and not walking or jogging as fast as I should, etc. 

So, was I totally stoked to learn about Jabra Headphones via Best Buy? UM YES! 

My brother uses a Fitbit and I haven't bit and gotten one yet. He's much more active than I am currently, but this? This seems more for me. I headed on over to add it to my wishlist after reading about the email and let me copy and paste some of the pertinent info for you here:

In-ear heart rate monitor

HELLO! What?! Wind noise reduction (for when I really start running), 5 hours of talk time, secure fit that stays in my ears, IN EAR HEART RATE MONITOR? Yeah, the heart rate monitor has sold me on it. I will wait to see if Santa Baby brings me these beauties before diving in, but if not, I'm soooooooooooo getting them for my New Year's resolution to become a healthier me!

JULEP - How to Winterize Your Nails!

I have to admit...I am not much of a "Maven".  While I love polishing my nails, I'm not the best at doing the cuticles, cleaning up the edges, or, frankly, painting them neatly!

I've tried the tricks of vaseline to keep the edges clean, a q tip with nail polish remover, etc., and I'm a big ole klutz! But practice makes perfect and that's totally what I'll be doing this holiday season!

I was approached by Julep to host a WINTERIZE YOUR NAILS post. I didn't get anything in exchange for posting this, but I thought it was pretty awesome to be included annnnnnnnd this gives me more of an idea of what Julep entails!

Hmmm...I'm not a Maven, but I soon will be. This tutorial to the right is awesome and reminds me of what my mom has been telling me all these years (sorry, Mom!). I definitely do a good job of clipping and shaping, and I'm definitely in the market for a good cuticle softener, etc!

When I headed over to Julep's Nail Polish shop, I was amazed at the selection of colors, treatments, and oh my gosh so much more! Have you visited there yet? If not, click here and check it out!

I had a great time looking at colors and I loved the wintery suggestions I got from the consultant:

I'm leaning towards Ilsa and Sawyer and Shari. Oh, who am I kidding .I love them all! I'm hoping Santa brings me a Julep subscription.

Are you a Maven? What's your favorite thing from Julep so far?

Disclaimer: While I was approached to see if I'd be interested in sharing the nail tutorial, I did not receive any compensation, product, etc. I just thought the tutorial had some great tips and the more I explored on Julep, the more entranced I was! So thanks for telling me about your company, Julep! I'm looking forward to placing an order and becoming a Maven!

#HintingSeason Canon is a great gift for your photographer & available at BestBuy!

In my family, we are hobbyist photographers. Okay, that's a lie. We haven't touched anything but a point and shoot or a camera phone in easily a decade. So we aren't hobbyists anymore; not yet anyway. We just love taking pictures of our family members, both biped and quad-ped (our furbabies!), when things strike us as beautiful, trying to capture the moment, document our lives and our surroundings, etc. Since it's #HintingSeason and there are only 17 more shopping days til Christmas, this is definitely at the top of the list for me! I'd love for us to jump back into the photography bug, take a few classes, etc., and I think this Canon EOS Rebel is just the thing needed to jumpstart our hobby again!

Click the EOS and find it on BestBuy!

This is the Canon EOS Rebel T5i and it is one of the most recommended and best-selling DSLRs! I love digital cameras and the ability to take a picture and share it online. But we all know that many of the point and shoot cameras just don't have the best quality. For people like my mom and dad who had SLRs, this is a great gift to propel the into the digital SLR! 

Click the pic and find this at!
