Making Time for Savings: SoCozy Boing Products

For a limited time, get SoCozy Boing/Curl products at Target for just $1.50 each! #savingmoney

As a single income family, we do our best to make the most out of our money.  So when I see an amazing deal on products or services my family uses, I jump at the chance to get them at a discount.

This week I found one of the best deals I’ve seen in a really long time and it’s on SoCozy Boing/Curl products for kids.  If you’ve seen my son pictured in other posts, you know he has a full head of curly hair (he’s 4 y/o and we’ve never cut his hair).  To be honest, it can be pretty hard to manage, but the SoCozy brand has been one of the hair care products for kids that has helped me keep his mane under control.

I couldn’t contain my excitement when I discovered an amazing deal on their Boing/Curl products at Target this week and rushed in to cash in on the deal.  I was able to score SoCozy’s Curl Shampoo and Conditioner for just $1.50 per bottle when it’s normally $11.99!

Deal Breakdown:

  1. Purchase 1 SoCozy Curl Shampoo on sale for $11.00 and 1 SoCozy Curl Conditioner, also on sale for $11.00.
  2. Prior to checkout be sure to add the Target Cartwheel offer of 50% off SoCozy Boing products to your account, and once at checkout have the cashier scan your Cartwheel barcode.  You’ll pay $5.50 for each bottle.
  3. When you get home (or in the car if you can’t wait, haha) submit your receipt to Ibotta for a $4.00 rebate on each item.

For a limited time, get SoCozy Boing/Curl products at Target for just $1.50 each! #savingmoney

That’s just $1.50 per item!  You can also get the SoCozy Boing Curl Gel-Cream for $1.50 using the same discounts.  Unfortunately, my local Target doesn’t sell the gel-cream so I wasn’t able to cash in on that product, but I’m still uber excited about the shampoo and conditioner.

For a limited time, get SoCozy Boing/Curl products at Target for just $1.50 each! #savingmoney

This deal ends on Saturday, July 23rd so hurry in to Target before the savings end!

Making Time for Mom: A Jamtastic Mother’s Day Gift

A Jamberry Mother's Day gift set is all mom ever wanted!

Mother’s Day is right around the corner and I want to share one of my personal favorite gifts – Jamberry nail wraps!  First, let me tell you a short story.

My mom has always been a woman with her nails done and has always done them herself.  She has all of the supplies needed to apply acrylic and over the past 20+ years has become pretty good at it.  The problem, at least in my opinion, is that she has been wearing the same exact brick red color for those 20+ years.  I guess it’s become her signature.  If at any time I see her without her nails done, I know something is wrong because it’s so out of her character.  But I mean, can we PLEASE try a different color, or pattern, or something?!

Making Time for Mom: A Jamtastic Mother's Day Gift

I, myself, have always been a nail biter and have never been able to keep pretty nails – ever.  But after trying Jamberry, that changed.  Whenever I have my Jamberry nail wraps on, I avoid messing with my nails because they’re just so amazingly awesome and I get compliments on them ALL the time.

There are over 300 designs to choose from and I want to try them all!  Now, if only I could get my mom on board.  I have to get her away from the usual brick red color and open her eyes to the wonderful world of Jamberry.  In doing so, I’d like to share what a wonderful Mother’s Day gift Jamberry would make!

Making Time for Mom: A Jamtastic Mother's Day Gift

Obviously, since I’ve mentioned it, Jamberry’s primary product is nail wraps.  What sets them apart is the use of a simple heat application technique, which allows them to adhere to the nail much better and last much longer than other brands.  I’ve tried other brands and some didn’t even last 24 hours.  But with Jamberry, my nail wraps stay on for 2+ weeks.

Quite frankly, I get so impatient after about a week and sometimes take my wraps off anyways, just so I can try a new design!

Jamberry Mommy & Me Wraps are a perfect Mother's Day gift!

I also can’t wait until my daughter is old enough to apply the wraps to her nails.  Jamberry not only has Jamberry Juniors wraps for small hands, but they also carry Mommy & Me matching sets!  So much fun!  I’m that mom that has the matching leggings and headbands and dresses and so on, so you know I’m going to be all over the Mommy & Me nail wraps just as soon as my daughter’s little fingers and nails are ready.

I mean, how perfect are these for Mother’s Day?

A Jamberry Mother's Day gift set is everything mom has always wanted.
Right now, Jamberry is also offering three different special Mother’s Day box sets that include different nail wraps.  They’re super special because each set includes limited edition designs that are only available in the gift sets.

Making Time for Mom: A Jamtastic Mother's Day Gift

Oh, and I can’t forget the amazing Disney Collection nail wraps!  The current Disney designs that are available (a variety of designs featuring Minnie Mouse, Ariel, Aurora) will be retiring on May 3rd.  So if mom is a Disney-loving woman, you’d better hurry before these particular ones are gone and never to be seen again!

Making Time for Mom: A Jamtastic Mother's Day Gift

If mom isn’t a nail wrap kind of lady, Jamberry has other products that might better suit her.  Other products include 5 Free Lacquers (free of 5 harsh chemicals), the TruShine Gel Enamel System (everything needed to have amazing gel nails at home), and even simple hand and nail care items like the Indulgence Hand Care Set and the Deluxe Tool Kit.

When it comes to beautiful nails, there is just so much to love at Jamberry!  I know I love Jamberry and love getting new nail wraps for Mother’s Day!
