Those colorful no heat hair curler thingys!

I am not a huge "As seen on TV" person, but when I saw these I was intrigued. Why?? 1. I don't like to use heat on my hair. 2. My hair is super straight, 3. They look so cool!!!

I looked a few times when they first came out but the prices were a little high for something I wasn't sure about. P.S. I am a cheapskate, I won't try to sugar coat it and use words like frugal, thrifty etc. I am cheap! I work hard for my money and I don't like giving away more than I need to. So when I found them on groupon for eight dollars I decided to order two sets. One for my little princess Riannan (granddaughter), and one for me.

How they work.... So the concept is that you pull the wand through the curler, hook a section of your dry hair with the eye at the end of the wand, pull through the curler and "TADA" you just wait twenty minutes, pull them out and you have amazing smooth spiral curls with no heat and no damage to the hair.

How they actually work....

You pull the wand through the curler, hook a section of your hair... This is a bit tricky because you have to kind of twist the hair, hook it, and pull it through before it untwists and becomes a hot mess. This sounds easier than it is and it took me a few tries to get it right. Also you want to choose the right curler other wise you have half of your hair hanging out the end and have to start over. I did this several times. Then after getting them in your hair which didn't take as long as I thought after I got the hang of it. So the first time I did this I left them in 20 minutes and they did nothing so I did it again and left them in an hour. And my results were:

Yea nothing... I was disappointed but not surprised. My hair won't hold a curl for anything so this is typical. Ask any of my former hairdressers that were determined to defeat my hairs stubbornness!

To be fair My daughter and granddaughter have slightly curly hair and theirs took a beautiful curl! I am waiting for a picture of the little princess the next time they use them.

Cost: So if you are one of those people that don't buy cheap because some one might ask how much you paid you can get them here on AMAZON for a whopping $58.95.

If you are thrifty and don't want to wait long to get them you can get them here on GROUPON  for $16.99. 

and for those of us that are patient, thrifty & not sure if they are for us you an get them on WISH  for a low low price of $5!!!

If you have used them please let me know if they worked for you and drop me a pic in the comments :)

Picosure Laser Tattoo Removal Review!!!

I have been stuck with a tattoo that I hate for a very long time now. I had looked into removal before but the cost was way too much. I had looked into covering it up but never fell in love with anything that would cover this hideous thing up.

I finally found out about Picosure!! This laser is amazing!

Why I love it:

NO Scarring, Fewer treatments than previous lasers by as much a 50%, less cost, and less discomfort!
But does it work?? I have had one treatment and these are my results: WARNING THE SECOND TWO PICS ARE KIND OF GROSS!!!!

Pic one: my very gross tattoo before the treatment. Yea what was I thinking??? Pic two: directly after the treatment. Lots of frost and you can see the blisters forming. this is actually a good thing haha

Pic 3: a gross mess. But it wasn't hurting. It actually looks worse because of the goop you have to keep on it.  Pic 4..Almost all the way healed and wow at the amount of color that is gone from it. Granted it isn't a clear pic because I had to take it m…

Things I am loving....Bem (pronounced Beam)

I am not easily impressed when it comes to speakers for my phone. I have had a few and not any of them have delivered what I was looking for. 
This Christmas I received the Bem (pronounced Beam) Bluetooth mobile speaker at our company party. I took it home and put it to the side for a few days. Never really giving it much thought. A few days later while putting some stuff away I ran across it again and decided to charge it up and give it a try.
Let me just say I was blown away! The sound that comes out of that little black cube is sensational! I was very impressed. While obviously it won't be mistaken for your surround sound it also will never be confused for one of those sketchy little portable speakers either!
I use my Bem when I am cleaning house because I can just pick up the little box and move it from room to room, but I can't wait for this summer when I can use it at the beach! No more leaving my car doors open at the beach I can park on or carrying a radio when I have t…

How to keep your eye safe from Makeup

Your eyes are precious!! Here are some tips for avoiding infection and abrasions from your makeup!

1. Keep it to yourself! Your mom always said you should share but in this case it is an absolute no no!! Sharing eye makeup means sharing bacteria and disease. No matter who it is!!

2. Keep it outside the line! Keeping your liner to the outside of the lash line prevents abrasions to the lids and eye. Applying to the waterline increases the chance that particles will migrate into the tear film over the cornea . This increases your chance of infection and irritation.

3. Keep sharp!
Keep your liner sharp so that the line is more precise. This will help lessen the chance to scratches to your eyes. Also make sure there are no wooden splinters left behind when you sharpen and that it sharpened evenly on all sides.

4. Keep it Fresh! Replacing all eye makeup every 3-4 months avoids bacterial infection. Also avoid products that have expired. A good rule of thumb with mascara is whe…
