Minx Nail Wraps Review

Accessorize your fashion look with Minx nail wraps. Wear the wrap with polish, under acrylic or on your natural nails. Minx nails are a great way to get extra shine and style while protecting your nails from drying out, becoming brittle or stained.

I like that I can wear a flexible polymer film nail wrap without the application of acrylic gel or nail polish and that my nails will be protected from breakage and splitting. I also liked that the application only needed heat from my hair dryer to shrink the wraps.

However, even though the benefits of wearing nail wraps were positive I was hesitant because I thought they would be difficult to apply to my nails.

I mentioned my concern to one of my friends and she told me that she loved the Minx nail wraps. Said wearing them made her fingers and toes look fashionable and that I should watch the how-to video a few times. She assured me that there was no reason to go to a manicurist. That even if I made a mistake I could reheat the film with my hairdryer and reapply to my nail until I perfected the application.

Know that it is a little tricky putting the wraps on your nails but once you do it a few time you are an expert. Learn how to Minx with co-founder, Janice Jordan and bring fashion to your fingertips

Rooster Decor for Kitchen and Home

When it comes to decorating my kitchen and den I like to accent with farm animals, primarily chickens, and roosters. Maybe it is because I live in a farming area and this is why I like chickens. All I know is that my family and friends always tell me that they like my hen and rooster home accents.

Overall I think farm animal décor is welcoming and comforting. Of course not any rooster or chicken accessory will do. I prefer products that are vintage and in good taste. I also like rooster silhouette fabric for craft products. It is fun to make your own pillows, drapes, placemats, table runners and picture frame covers.

Many people decorate with roosters and chicken products all year round. I am not one of those people. I tend to add rooster products to my kitchen and living room in the spring and throughout the summer months.  Then put them away in the fall and winter season.

I love the Fritz and Floyd vintage French country rooster. The rustic charm is very appealing to me, I think the hand-painted roosters in pastel colors look best displayed in the kitchen on top of the refrigerator or on a bakers rack. I like to put collectible figurines up high up so the children and my dogs don’t break them. This rooster figurine would look lovely displayed on a buffet or an end table.


If you love farm animal figurines and collectibles then I would recommend shopping online at Amazon or eBay. For other products such as pillows, fabric, kitchen mugs, and placemats, teapots you should check out my online finds below.

Keepsake Birth Stats Nursery Pillows


Birth announcement decorative pillows make wonderful keepsakes for parents, grandparents and aunts and uncles. The pillow features the baby’s name, birth date, the day of the week, weight and the length. All stats are added to this personalized pillow to mark the special occasion.

This year our family is going to grow because three of my nieces are expecting. My one niece told me that we should give her a years supply of diapers. She, of course, was suffering from sticker shock after learning how many diapers she will need and how costly they are.  My other niece wanted everything from a breast pump to nasal wipes and everything in-between including receiving 12 swaddle blankets, 36 onesies and a list that went on and on. Then my niece who was expecting her third child said that what she really wanted was a keepsake birth stats pillow for the nursery. She liked that this pillow would be personalized with her babies information and that it would be supportive for her and "daddy" when they held their baby. 



What I like about the nursery pillows that are offered at Zazzle is the quality of the pillow, the softness of the fabric, and the printing.  I found that it was very easy to add my personalized information to the pillow and that the finished product was lovely.  Also, I could choose the fabric I preferred and I opted for the cotton over the polyester.  I also selected the pillow that featured the zipper because it enabled me to launder it. 

Here are a few customers pillow reviews

“The quality of the product is great. The Grade A cotton pillow feels nice and there is a zipper so you can remove it to clean.” by D. Queen
This personalized pillow is a one of a kind and made a great gift! “ by SC
“I enjoyed making this pillow as much as giving it! The pillow turned out beautifully and was received with much appreciation and enthusiasm” by Heather B

I always recommend buying something from the baby shower registry, then after the baby is born it is nice to give her a birth stats nursery pillow. She will love it and will know that you really care because it is personalized.

Here are a few of my favorite nursery pillow designs. The pillows were all created by independent Zazzle designers. Know that when you shop and buy from a Zazzle designer that you are supporting a small business and not a big box store. Thank you for supporting small business.
