Send a Smile with the JustWink App

Sometimes it's the little things that put smiles on people's faces. A hand picked flower, a post-it note with a cute message, or a heartfelt card is sometimes all someone needs to turn their day around!

The JustWink mobile app makes it easy to turn a frown upside down! This app, for both iPhones and Androids, allows you to send highly customizable cards to friends, family and significant others through your phone. No excuses for missing your friend's birthday this year!

First off, I want to say Happy Birthday to my mom today! I sent her a JustWink card that expressed how much I love her with a cute design. I was able to customize the text and 'handwrite' my own signature!

It was sent instantly to her email address, and I even got a message letting me know that she opened it. When your recipient gets their card via email, it looks like the outside of an envelope, and when clicked, they are redirected to the JustWink site to open. You can also share cards via text message and Facebook. 

There are several different categories of cards, including funny birthday, life, random notes, thanks, congrats, baby, wedding and more. I sent a funny 'miss you' card to my husband since we've both been traveling. He got it as a text message and was able to view it from his phone while on the go. Hopefully it put a smile on his face knowing that I was thinking about him! 

justWink is an awesome collection of greeting cards that feature bold colors, adorable illustrations, and witty copy for every occasion.  The combination of whimsical unicorns, sweater-wearing cats, and (of course) bacon with realistic, yet playful messages create an unexpected experience for all.  And guess what?  Each card has a QR code and URL on the back that directs you to a free justWink app for iPhone and Android phones.  Download the app and you can send digital cards via text, email or Facebook.  For more information and where to find justWink cards on shelf, visit or

Gelish Gel Nail Polish

One of the MANY things I love about NYC is that the manicures and pedicures are so super cheap. Today I decided to let someone else 'Shellac' my nails. Usually I do themselves or my bestie Tina does them, but since she's a few states over, I thought I would let the nail salon do it. I'm traveling this week so I wanted to not have to worry about my nails. The salon did have Shellac, but I opted for this Gelish nail polish in Pink Smoothie.

Looks a lot like Shellac Romantique. Gelish had a ton of colors to choose from which was appealing to me. The nail tech said she never had any complains with Gelish. I'll be the judge of that!

I'll keep everyone updated on how it holds up!

Murad Oil-Free Sunscreen review

Murad Oil-Free Sunscreen-Broad Spectrum 30 PA+++ is not only helping to prevent future sun and free radical damage, but is also Oil-free which many of us look for in a sunscreen. I have used so many different oil-free sunscreens and always end up with breakouts the next day. Not this product! However; like all sunscreens...You really need to apply them throughout the day. This is VERY important! Because Murad Oil-Free sunscreen is so light-weight, you are able to do so without feeling as if you have just painted your face. Added bonus: it smells really good!
