I did it. I joined Jamberry Nails as a consultant. I just couldn't resist the opportunity to make some money promoting a product I really, really love. For my first manicure, I chose the Skyline nail wrap in matte. I absolutely loved how my nails turned out and I didn't do that bad of a job applying the nails. This manicure did not last a full two weeks like the company advertised, BUT this was due to the way I applied the wrap.
For my second manicure I chose the Hot Zebra wrap. My nails turned out amazing! And thanks to watching a few YouTube videos of Jamberry consultants, I learned how to apply my nails so that I would get two weeks out of my manicure.
I applied this wrap to my nails on Sunday, August 24th and they still look dang good. It looks like I need a fill in this pictures because my nails grow fast. I have gotten so many compliments on my nails and I've made some money. Win win!
I plan to post a final picture of my nails just before I remove them to put on my next wrap. I'm still trying to decide what Jamberry design I want to use on my nails next.
I have a personal website where you can check out all the designs Jamberry has to offer at shavonne.jamberrynails.net.

I hate dating and I don't have a great track record for picking great guys. I'm just lousy at it which is one reason why I've completely given up on dating.

I haven't posted to my blog in a year!
What do I pay for this domain name for? I might as well get my money's worth.
I've been busy learning how to cook and staying active and learning how to invest in real estate. I'm seriously tired of working for someone else and I'm envious of those who've managed to find their niche and are making money.
I've been practicing that old saying "If you don't have anything nice to say, then don't say it at all." It's been working but it's left me little to talk about on my blog.
That will have to change. I have been contributing to a video blog these past 6 months. It's a pretty boring watch. I've gotten bored with video blogging but since I've committed to doing a video 365 Project, I'm going to finish.
To start off with a little positive, I've been reading PaleOMG because the blog is just a good read. Plus, there are paleo recipes I can try. I'm new to the whole cooking thing because of my food allergies and this is one blog I turn to for recipes. Anyways, Julie posted a fashion Friday post which included a picture of one of the most beautiful bags I've ever seen. The bag is made by Kelly Moore and it's Esther bag.
Isn't it beautiful? The green is just lovely. For the first time in a I wish I were a married woman with kids that way I'd have Mother's Day or an anniversary to get an awesome gift like this.

I stumbled across a blog at blogit.com written by a black woman. (Blogit is a website where you can get paid to blog.) She was a married, Christian black woman who homeschooled her children. Not only that, but her husband (a small business owner) could provide for their family without her having to work.
I've personally never a black woman who lived like that. Growing up, I was surrounded by single moms (mostly never married). The women who were married worked and they weren't married to business owners.
Some years later I was introduced to a couple who lived a similar lifestyle to that blogger I stumbled across years ago. What I loved most about the couple is, the wife adored her husband. I could tell by the way she looked at him. She had respect for him. That's something I don't see much from married women.
I never wanted to get married or have children because the examples of marriage and motherhood were what I considered to be nightmares. But, I got glimpses of what I now what because there were people who showed me what I could have. Now, I just need to find a husband.

Wordpress does have a free app, but I was only able to get that to work once. When it did work, it was great. And easy. And fun. And then it stopped working. And mobile blogging to my Wordpress blog from my phone is a nightmare.
I have two options, I can find other platform to blog from (I think I'm limited because my web hosting only supports Wordpress or Blogger). But I love my blog template. I paid for it!! Graph Paper Press designs beautiful blog templates that compliment photograpy and display well on mobile devices, specifically Apple mobile devices. (Sorry Android and Windows fans, I don't use them, don't have an interest in how they work or how my blogs display on their screens). Anyone have some advice on how to solve my dilemma? Or how to get the Wordpress app to work? The Wordpress forums are useless.
It would also helped if I narrowed my focus of my blog. Then I realize, the blog is called Shavonne for a reason. It's about me. And I'm interested in everything, so I should blog about the things that interest me. Politics, food, religion, men, dating, being single, those are the things I like talking about. Lately, my obsession has been food.
I don't like dating, so I won't be blogging much about that. I blogging about dating mostly because I don't date.
I hate cheaters! Sorry, I'm watching Army wives and the Sherwoods are cheating on each other. Army Wives is my guilty pleasure. I served in the Army, but I was never an Army wife, so I'm seeing it from a very different perspective. I couldn't marry a soldier. I witnessed too much cheating and I'm a clingy woman. I wouldn't want my man away from me for too long. My heart doesn't grow fonder with distance and time.
Must get cook my cilantro lime cauliflower then get some shut eye. Happy Independance Day.
