Welcome new readers! Allow myself to introduce…myself. My name is Nirra, and I am a mystery shopping, nail polish-loving, money-saving teacher. I am taking part in the December to Remember giveaway hop from The Hopping Bloggers, which might be the reason that you’re here. I hope that you will become a reader, because I have a lot of great giveaways coming up in the future as well as great info on ways to save and make money that I know work personally because I use them myself. I also do reviews pretty regularly. I hope you’ll stick around beyond just this event. I have a lot planned for 2017, and I’d love to see you hanging around here more often.

About the December to remember event, many bloggers have come together to give away some awesome prizes. I am giving away a $100 value pair of cubic zirconia earrings from Anjolee.

Anjolee is a company that sells jewelry online. They specialize in diamond engagement rings, but also have a wide variety of other diamond jewelry to choose from. Not only do they have diamonds, though. They also have other gemstones jewelry. Check out their site. Right now they have a promotion for 5-15% off some of their jewelry. They also have free shipping!

Anjolee has been around since the 1960s. Obviously that was before their internet site opened. Anjolee’s founder designed his own jewelry, steadily growing in New York City before moving to Los Angeles in 1977. They opened their e-commerce division in 2007 which is for the public.

I got to try a pair of their garnet and cz earrings and they are stunning. Look!20161204_164655

Okay, so this is not the best picture, but this one is a little better. And it’s what you could win.


Oh! And look at this one!


What do you have to do to get your hand on some of these? It’s simple: use the rafflecopter widget below.

Fall Gift - New Subscribers
This is the offer you have been waiting for! If you have never used Julep before, now is the time to sign up! You will get 12 FREE full sized polishes when you sign up here! You read that right. You will get a FREE 12-piece full-size polish set when you join their beauty box subscription today.

If you usually pay someone to paint your nails for you, you can save some major money in the new year by painting your own. I don’t pay for pedicures and manicures anymore. The last time I decided to go, I ended up regretting it because I knew I could do just as good of a job on my own and actually make my own feet pretty smooth. So here’s how it usually works. You go to your salon of choice and wait 20 minutes for a chair. Then, you get in the chair and they put smoking hot water in the basin which is supposed to be relaxing. They turn on those tired massage chairs. They rush through the pedicure and don’t even do your feet the way you like (Still some rough foot skin. Who wants to pay for that???)

Back to Julep: I have done a couple of review videos about Julep nail polishes. The first time I tried them, it was because they had this awesome 12 piece polish set. If you are a nail polish girl, this is a great way to try out some polish from Julep! It is also a great way to get some gifts to share with friends (Or not. I’m not judging).

Their beauty box is $24.99 a month. You can sign up to let it automatically curate products for you, or you can choose the products that you want monthly. There is not just nail polish, but all types of beauty products. Check out my review video here, where I show all the polishes that I got when I first signed up.

You can try it for a month and then skip as many months as you want AND you can cancel at any time. If you usually get a pedicure and manicure at a salon, you are looking at at least $50 if you go once a month and that’s on the cheap end.

It’s really a great deal to get this set from Julep right now while it lasts. Don’t wait, because the last time they offered these 12 full size polishes it was back in June! Get yours here. Let me know what you think!

Disclosure: I received compensation for this post. Still, all opinions are mine.

Do you have a little girl age five or older? She might like this cute little offer called Lil’ Lockitz. Lil’ Lockitz lets her express her creative side and make something nice for herself or her bestie. She can wear them as a necklace, bracelet or use the keychain clasps to make clip-ons!

They are cute, wearable collages. They tells a story, with gems, backgrounds and charms of all of your little girl’s favorite things and the kit can make 10 reusable Lockitz.

What all comes with it? The kit includes the Design Studio with locket tops and backs, storage compartments, display stand, lights and music, necklaces, bracelets, keychain clasps, custom charms, backgrounds, tweezers, Photo Stencil and all the instructions that your little girl will need to make something fantastic. It also needs 3 AA batteries, but you’ll have to get those yourself as they are not included.

Where can you get one of these super cute design studios? You can get them on their site.

Has your little girl tried these? What does she think of them? Leave me a comment!

Disclosure: I received the Ninja Turtles Collectible Lunchbox kit in order to do a review. All opinions are mine.

Have I got the perfect Ninja Turtles fan gift ideas in this post! They are listed in order of coolness. Just kidding. It’s a random order. To start with, what’s cooler than a ninja turtles lunchbox with wheels that really roll? A ninja turtles lunchbox with wheels that really roll AND ninja turtles masks AND both ninja turtles movies! And on Amazon right now, it’s a steal. The price might change at any time, so if you have a little ninja turtles fan at home you might want to jump on this. This is a great gift! Check out my unboxing video below.

Need another idea? Well, if you haven’t gotten  your fan the ninja turtles game, you need to consider it. Here’s the link to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutants in Manhattan – PlayStation 4 game.

Now that the weather is starting supposed to be cooling down, your little ninja turtles fan is likely to enjoy a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Toddler Boys’ Character Hoodie, Green, 4T. Cute, right??

Next up for the time-conscious ninja turtle fan is a Nickelodeon Kids’ TMN4008 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Watch with Green Rubber Band. When I was a kid, one of my favorite gifts was a watch. I guess it just makes you feel like a grown up or something when you have a watch as a kid.

Okay, down to the last idea. This would be a totally cool gift for a ninja turtles fan. The shell raiser! Check out the Playhut Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Shell Raiser Vehicle.
Do you have any little ninja turtles fans in your home? Or are you a fan of them yourself? Hey, no judgement here. I used to love them when I was a child in the 80s. Let me know in the comments.
