Bows N Ties Review & Giveaway

   My husband is a tie snob.  I'm not being mean, just honest.  He lived in Europe for several years and developed a taste for European ties.  And not just any European ties, handcrafted European ties, to be exact.  He likes how thick and well constructed they are.  He always told me that American ties just can't compete with European ties, in quality and style.  In fact, after we first got married, he gave me a list of places I could order ties for him online, if I ever wanted to get him a tie.  Seriously??  Needless to say, he has not gotten many ties for Father's Day.
Doesn't my husband look snazzy!
   When I got a tie to review from Bows N Ties, I'll admit I was nervous!  It was, after all, not a European tie.  I nervously gave it to him, and...he was really impressed!  He admitted that the fabric was as thick and sturdy as the handcrafted European ties he loves.  He tried it on and was impressed with the size of the knot it made,and he also liked the bold stripes. We have small children, and so his ties can get messy very easily.  This tie is made from a microfiber fabric that looks and feels like silk, but doesn't stain or wrinkle as easily as silk.  In a test run, at church, his tie was just as wrinkle-free and clean when we were leaving, as when we arrived (no small miracle, when there were goldfish crackers, fruit-loops  and cheese, and two toddlers involved ).

    My husband the self-proclaimed tie snob said that I could buy him a tie from Bows N Ties anytime he needs a new tie.  Shopping at Bows N Ties will be a piece of cake with their 24/7 customer support and 100% satisfaction guaranteed policy.  They also offer a 30 day no-questions-asked return policy and free shipping on orders over $50.  Their ties are very reasonable priced, and with their massive selection you will easily be able to find the tie that you need for your special occasion, business, or party.   Not only does Bows N Ties offer a superb selection of ties, they also have information of different ways to tie a tie, necktie care tips, men's dress tips for different occasions, and fashion tips.

One of you lucky readers will have the chance to win one of these awesome ties for yourself.  Simply fill out the rafflecopter below.  Good Luck!

It Works! $540 Giveaway

Wrap with Jolene has teamed up with A Man's Take on Things and a group of great bloggers to bring you this awesome Prize Basket filled with It Works! Products valued at over $540!

Here is a little Information about It Works!
Founded in 2001, It Works! Global is a direct selling company that offers professional quality beauty and wellness products that both reflect high standards of integrity and reach consumers at affordable prices. In 2011, It Works! Global was ranked on Inc. magazine's prestigious Inc. 500/5000 list as one of the 50 fastest-growing companies in its category. This growth is truly giving It Works! a global reach. They currently have thousands of Independent Distributors and Loyal Customers across three continents, eight countries, and multiple territories!

This is the story about her journey with it Works! the host for the fantastic giveaway, Wrap With Jolene:
Here is my story

“I started with It Works in Sept of 2011 and I did this because I had won a couple of wraps and tried them and fell in the love with my results.   I did not have the money to buy anymore at $25 a piece so I decided that I could pre-sell the 8 wraps in the kit (at that time the kit was $199) for $25 a piece and have enough money to buy the kit and figure out a way from there to get more wraps.  I never thought it would take off the way it did.  I did have to put alot of work into the first couple of months but by the third month I was a Diamond.  I will never forget I found out on New Years Eve while we were at a concert that I had made Diamond and I was so excited.  I signed up my husband in January and made him my primary leg under me.  We are now both Double Diamonds and it is amazing.  We both are receiving the $10,000 bonus and I am going for a $25,000 bonus this month!!  My mom also signed up under my husband and just reached Diamond the end of Feb and is also receiving the $10,000 bonus.  

Since I have started with It Works we have paid off all of our credit cards and we had a massive amount of them as we were living way above our means and pay check to pay check, paid cash for two Christmas's, went to Vegas and paid for it all up front, bought a new 2013 Camero ZL1 and a 2013 GMC Denali 2500 HD, bought a boat, paid in cash for new siding and windows on our house ($17,000), and we have a savings account that I never thought we would have.  This is all because of It Works and the fabulous team I have.  I also have a fabulous upline that is there helping me whenever I need it.  

I have also became alot more healthy, lost weight, and feel fantastic.  I have three favorite products and they are Greens, Defining Gel, and the Ultimate Body Wraps.  The greens I put in a smoothy daily and I do not feel fatigued anymore and I also have not been sick once this winter season and I run a daycare out of my home and there are germs all over me all day long :)  This is the first year that I have not been sick at least once and I am so grateful for the greens.  The Ultimate Body Wraps and the defining gel I love to use together.  I dont use them at the same time but I wrap one day and then use the defining gel in between wrapping.  I had horrible stretch marks and a c-section scar and the stretch marks are almost iridescent and the c-section scar is not as ugly looking as it used to be.  The results are on the top of my page at

Now lets talk about the awesome It Works! Products up for grabs!

Sun Shadz

   Sun Shadz is a brand new product from MoniMay Inc.  Sun Shadz was developed by Monica May Sanders.  Monica is an expert hair colorist, based in Arizona.  She has been recognized in Vogue, Seventeen, and Cut & Style.
  Sun Shadz is a mineral powder that was developed to protect scalps naturally from the rays of the sun.  It provides SPF 15 protection using natural products like rice powder, zinc oxide, silica and orange peel oil.  Sun Shadz can also act a dry shampoo, by absorbing the oil that weighs down hair between washes.  I loved the applicator for Sun Shadz.  It looks similar to a makeup brush and made applying the powder very easy!
   I was excited to try Sun Shadz for my son and daughter.  They like to play outside, and they both have very light hair.  When it was applied, the powder made their hair look dusty.  I tried using less, but to achieve a good level, of coverage the powder always made their hair look dusty.  I also tested this out with swimming, and the water washed out the powder.  So this wouldn't be the best product to use for swimming or any aquatic activities.  I think for only 15 SPF and the dusty look, I will continue to use a liquid sun screen applied to their hairline and hair parts for outside activities. 

    I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Jamberry Nails

   Ladies, think of the last time you did your nails or got your nails done.  You finally got the kiddos to bed, or got a moment to yourself and decided you needed a little pampering, right?  You do your nails (trying that cute pattern you saw online). They look great, but then after doing dishes, or laundry or just living life....two of them are chipped and one is completely lacking any polish.   Super frustrating right?  Ladies, those days are OVER!
   I'm so excited to introduce you to a very cool and exciting product.  It is called Jamberry Nail Wraps.
Jamberry Nail Wraps were created by a group of sisters that were sick of :

               -spending hours at the salon (and lots of $$$)
               -having to constantly touch up their nails
               -spending hours trying to create cute little patterns on their nails

    Unlike the sticker nails at the drugstores, Jamberry Nail Wraps are made of high-quality vinyl.  This means that they will stay on your nails, through all your daily activities.  No more smudging or cracked polish, and you know that they will stay on!

They are incredibly easy to apply all you have to do is:

Cutting away the excess wrap
1. Wash your hands with soap       
 to remove dirt and oils (I use dish soap).

2. Push back or clip your cuticles.

3. Place the wrap that fits your fingernail on your finger.

4. Use scissors to remove excess wrap (but save the extras, they are great for toes).

5. File down the end of the wrap until it is smooth.

6. Heat up your nail warmer (it is like a small bean bag), and use it to apply heat and pressure to the nail wrap (heat is what causes the wrap to bond to your nails).

7. File away any additional wrap.

Using the warmer to apply heat & pressure

Viola! Beautiful nails!

     Jamberry nail wraps can last from 1-3 weeks on fingernails and from 3-6 weeks on toenails.  They come a large variety of cute patterns including sparkles and hombre.
     I've been wearing my nail wraps for several days, and I love them!  I've gotten so many compliments and several people have asked me how I was able to make that pattern on my nails!  I've worked out, done dishes, laundry, bathed (myself and my kiddos), cooked and vacuumed and my nails still look fantastic!
     Just as an additional note, I use the warmer, because I've had great results with it.  You can also any safe heat source such as a hair dryer or a mini heater to apply your Jamberry nails!

I've teamed up with Claire Gentry and her Jamberry business to bring this awesome giveaway exclusively to Winning and Musings followers.  

 2 of you will win a half sheet of Jamberry nails, your choice, of product on hand.  (The picture above is a half sheet)  This is enough for me to do both of my hands and both feet. You will also win a custom nail kit made by Claire that will contain: a pair of scissors, a nail file, and a warmer.  Good luck!

Rachel and the Tree Schoolers Review

  I recently began homeschooling my preschool-aged daughter, and I'm always looking for fun and engaging learning experiences for her.  I was excited to introduce her to the Rachel and the Tree Schoolers series.  

   One morning I told her we were going to do something a little bit different for homeschool, and I put the DVD in.  My daughter was intrigued, from the beginning.  She didn't just stay on the couch, but got up to dance to the catchy songs about lightning and thunder.  She quickly picked up on the sign language that Rachel taught the children.  There was a simple "game-show" portion of the movie, and my daughter was guessing the answers and pointing to the different pictures.  I was impressed by how engaged she became.  She is usually a T.V. zombie while watching a movie, but she was interacting with Rachel and other characters during the entire show.  Even my 18 month old son, who has very little interest in movies, was dancing and trying to sing along with the characters.  Now my children always request to watch this show!

   Even more important than the entertainment value, I feel that the way the material is presented is very conducive to the way young minds think.  In the movie Rachel, begins each question with the phrase, "I wonder." I have found that my daughter has begun phrasing her questions that way.  Rachel and the Tree Schoolers also asks several different questions about a topic to add depth to the knowledge.  For example instead of just explaining what weather is, they also explain what clouds are made of, why it rains, the simple science behind lightning and thunder etc.  I felt that all of these topics were discussed very well at a preschool level.
   After watching the DVD, my daughter has shown a new interest in the weather, she is excited to discuss the weather with me.  She, also, has excitedly told friends and grandparents all that she knows about clouds and the weather.  The DVD was a great segway into some fun and educational crafts.  For example, we used cotton balls to make pictures of the different types of clouds discussed in by Rachel and the Tree Schoolers.  The characters on Rachel and the Tree Schooler are very well done.  Rachel is warm and friendly, and each animated character adds a fun new perspective to the learning.

   The DVD also came with a CD.  I love this!  My daughter loves to sing the songs from Rachel and the Tree Schoolers, but I don't want her watching the DVD 10 times a day.  I just pop in the CD, and she can sing to her little heart's content.  The CD also contains sing-along tracks.  These are great for preschoolers that are just learning the songs.  The DVD also comes with a FREE teachers guide and a parents guide.  The guides include the lyrics to all the songs, a list of fun activities and books to continue learning about weather.  The DVD also has an auto-play  feature that would be especially helpful to daycares or settings with many children.

  I would highly recommend this DVD learning system to parents and teachers alike.  I think it would be great for a daycare, preschool, or just a fun, educational DVD for home use.  It will entertain preschool-aged children, while it opens them up to new ideas and teaches them more about the world around them.

Doji Pure Giveaway

       Did you know that it only takes 26 seconds for something put on your skin to be absorbed into your bloodstream?  

Do you know what chemicals and fillers are in your current bath products? 

   I'm so excited to introduce you to Doji Pure. Doji Pure is a brand new line of bath and body products that are all natural and luxurious!  Each product is handmade with high quality, natural, vitamin rich ingredients.  Even the coloring and scents come from natural products like pure essential oils and plant extracted oils.  Doji Pure products help you to enjoy luxury without harmful chemicals or high prices!  They have a fantastic line of products ranging from lotions and bath fizzies to microderm abrasion and eyelash treatments.

(Flaweless Face and POREfessionally Clean are double the size they were at Christmas time. Not pictured is Totally Busted acne buster mask.)  I live in an extremely dry climate, so I was excited to get to try out anything that would keep my skin looking fresh and hydrated!  Their body frostings are absolutely amazing!  It absorbed quickly with no oily residue and left my skin silky smooth.  It smelled just like a product from a well-known luxury bath and body store.  My husband tried their men's lotion on his feet.  He has extremely dry, cracked feet, and regular lotions never seem to help.  After using Doji Pure's men's lotion, his feet were instantly softer, and within a few days the cracks and dry skin were finally healing!
Photo: Ladies, check out our fun, new Body Frosting (lotion)...available in Berry-licious, P.S. I Love You, Pure Seduction, Lemongrass Mint Eucalyptus, Lavender Vanilla, Very Sexy Woman, Mesmerize, and Viva La Juicy. 4 oz. $8 each or 3/$20
   Next, I tried their Sugar Lip Scrub.  YUM!!  They come in delicious flavors like: Chocolate, Citrus Mint, and Coconut Vanilla.  Not only did they taste delicious, but they left my lips so incredible smooth, especially after I applied Doji Pure's Kissable Lip Balm.  My daughter and I use this product every night before bedtime.  My daughter says that she feels like a fancy lady with very softy lips!

  One night, after a particularly stressful day, I ran a bath and used Doji Pure's D-Tox Bath Soak.  It smelled like a spa!  I sat and soaked and it felt so relaxing!  After I got out, I went to bed and I was able to instantly fall asleep (usually I toss and turn for quite a while after I've had a stressful day). 

Photo: D-tox Botanical Bath Soak lowers stress, balances pH and Hormone levels, and helps your body naturally detox. It also leaves skin feeling silky smooth, and smells amazing and therapeutic. Made with botanical mint and lavender plants from Idaho. Available in Lemongrass Mint Eucalyptus, Lavender Vanilla, and Eucalyptus Peppermint. 8 oz.  $15 each

   I was so impressed with Doji Pure products!  I love that everything was completely natural, but was as good or even better quality than the bath products I can find in specialty stores.  And the products are much more reasonably priced!  I'm in love with Doji Pure products!!  I was able to score a great deal for my readers...and a great giveaway!

Noxicare Natural Pain Relief

         I don't like taking medication...whew...glad I got that off my chest!  I don't like swallowing pills, because they  make me gag.  I don't like having weird side effects, and, honestly, I don't know how safe I feel most medications are.  So luckily for me, I've had very few instances where I've needed to take much medication.
         But one thing that keeps me running back to the medicine cabinet is pain.  Back pain, muscle pains, cramps, headaches etc.  I just have never found anything as effective as medication to deal with those issues.  So I was very interested to see how effective a natural pain relief cream could be.  I've used some other pain relief creams in the past, but let's be honest, they all smell like a stinky nursing home and there is nothing natural about them!  Noxicare utilizes seven natural pain relievers such as: turmeric, holy basil, rosemary extract, and ginger.  It is also paraben free! It was developed by Dr. Reza Ghorbani a Harvard trained, board certified Pain Management Specialist.
      The first thing I did when I got the bottle of Noxicare was open it and smell it, and it smelled like...nothing!  No smell whatsoever.  So no worries about putting it on first thing in the morning or in the middle of the day, you won't be stinky!
      I had recently stepped up my workout routine, and I was having some pretty intense muscle pain in the evenings.  I used a small amount on my legs and back.  The cream was light and absorbed quickly.  The Noxicare was instantly and pleasantly cooling.  Within just a few moments my pain had subsided.  Over the next few days, I was able to use Noxicare for a headache and other skeletal muscle pain.  Each time the pain subsided, and I didn't need to take any medication.  Once the pain was gone it never came back.

    My sister suffers from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis and is often in pain, even after taking her medication.  I lent her my bottle of Noxicare to try.  She used it on her joints, and was pain-free for over an hour and a half.  That may not sound like much time, but it is equal to the amount of time that she is pain-free using very powerful prescription drugs.  She liked the instant cooling effects and was overall very happy with the product.

I was very pleased with this product and I now take it with me in my purse, so I can have it on hand if I need it.  I'm also very excited to be able to give two of my readers a chance to win their own bottle of Noxicare.  Just fill out the information in the rafflecopter below and good luck!
