I’m living outside of Chicago right now, but I grew up outside of Indianapolis. My parents would take me and my brother into the city nearly every weekend for some kind of “adventure,” and my dad nearly ALWAYS took any way home but the highway. So we got to see a ton of the older neighborhoods and areas of the city that you just don’t see driving down I-65. I LOVE Indianapolis- the people, the skyline, the architecture, and most of all the pride that Hoosiers have in their communities. So on that note…
My best friend from kindergarten until, well, now, has one of the coolest jobs I can imagine in one of my favorite places in the world. Libby works for Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc. (KIBI); the company tries to revitalize green spaces, parks, and neighborhoods through Indy using tons of local volunteers, high school students, and neighbors and encouraging them to take ownership of their own city and surroundings to help it thrive. KIBI’s vision:
Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc. sees a vibrant city, with every neighborhood landscape thriving and well, and its people empowered, mobilized, and devoted toward that vision. The result: a city defined by strong neighborhoods; inspired places; and a clean, flourishing environment.
My friend has one of the coolest jobs; she’s the Assistant Manager of the Youth Tree Team (YTT) at Keep Indianapolis Beautiful. Libby works with high school students over the summer on the “Youth Tree Team,” taking high school students all over some of the older neighborhoods in Indianapolis, planting trees and helping clean up forgotten spaces. Basically, she spends her days planting trees in tucked away corners of the city. SO COOL. This is her (and she’s actually pretty girly, despite the F-550 evidence to the contrary):
So – this awesome person just tried Jams for the first time in December, not exactly tree-planting season. This weekend was one of the first that involved being on the job in a major way. She has been saying for months that this would be the “true test” for Jamberry Nail wraps – and whether the Jams live up to everything I claim about them. 🙂 For a little extra sparkle, she wore her all-time favorite Jams, “Midnight Celebration,” for the occasion. So, without further ado….
AMAZING!!! Okay – check that out – over a week into her manicure AND a day spend planting trees. No chips, no scratches, no lifting edges. Verdict? Yes, Jamberry Nail wraps actually work! And I love that while LIbby is off helping the amazing city of Indianapolis thrive and be beautiful, she’s looking on-point and sassy with the cutest nails to ever grip the wheel of an F-550.
Love the look? Midnight Celebration has been one of the top-sellers since it was released! Click here to see it!
