Conair Babyliss Pro Ceramic 20 Roller Hairsetter - Review

I never do too much to my hair.. 
I usually just straighten it and go on my merry little way.
I decided for my jobs aunnual dinner I would have it curled. 
I went to a little place in the city, and I'm so happy I went.

So many salons tell me my hair is too thin to give layers. Okay I tell them.
Well this lady was amazing. Not only did she call them crazy, but she gave me the best hair cut ever!
Typically salons will charge about $45-60 for JUST curling your dry hair if it's long.
I went to this lady and she charged me $50 for wash-cut-blow dry- and curls!
Sweet, right? She gave me a great cut, and recommended I use electric rollers, not a curling iron.

First thing I did when I got home at like 1am was head on to
Amazon and find myself a set of Electric Rollers!
I purchased the one that everyone gave an average of 5 stars..
(love amazons reviews)
I used it for the first time yesterday,
and the verdict is in.. I love it!!

It takes about 20-25 minutes to heat up. Left them in for about 20 minutes, and had some gorgeous curls!
I like my curls a little wavy and less gathered so I ran my fingers though it a few times to get my desired look and then sprayed my hair enough to hold the curl.

Holiday Shopping {Intel Giveaway - Blissfully Domestic}

So I figured I'd do most of my holiday shopping online this year.
I can use coupon codes, free shipping, and even get more of a variety.
Only problem is I don't have a desktop..
It's cool.. I have a laptop :)
I love my laptop, sometimes.

It needs to be plugged in at all times.  If you unplug it, power off!
I have Photo Shop Elements new in the package.. from last Black Friday..
My laptop can't handle the software.. bummer.

Anyway so I was shopping today for my hubby.
All excited, even got myself a few things. {our little secret}
One problem.  For some reason my laptop couldn't handle checking out,
so I had to actually call the company to tell them every item number and all my information.
It took an extra 20 minutes out of my day to do something I thought would be convenient.

So I was more than thrilled to see Blissfully Domestic and Intel
are partnering up to host a giveaway a Holiday Digital Makeover!



I about fell out of my chair looking at the specifics.
Oh man.. I'd finally be able to edit my pictures without worrying if they are too bright or too dark.
It was a nightmare even attempting to make Christmas cards through one of those fancy photo sites.
See my laptop also has a dull backlight. It's more money to fix that then get a new one.
Online shopping would be a breeze!
Oh me, oh my.. I hope I win!! If not I hope one of you do!
Best of luck, and happy holidays! :)


Marshalls, I kinda love you..

(Top, $19.99)
Do not go to Marshalls after getting paid.
This way you won't spend your whole paycheck.

Okay in all seriousness.
I was at Marshalls today and could have walked out with the whole store.
I love it there.  I asked if they have an apartment for rent, but they said no.

I picked out about 10 dresses/shirts today.
Thinking I'd just try them on for fun,
 but then two fit so amazing that I couldn't bear putting them back on the shelves.

The last time I hesitated I lost the dress I wanted..
No, no way! NOT this time!
These are mine.. all mine, and I'm so excited!!
Christmas party here I come.

I also bought aprons, cookware, and gifts for the family.. Ah, gotta love one stop shopping!
Marshalls, I kinda love you. :)

(Dress, $24.99)

I know I can always go to Marshalls  and find what I'm looking for.  You may have to search a little bit, but that's the fun part! :)
Here's my dress from a previous shopping trip. ♥

(Dress, $49.99)

As much as I wish this was a sponsored post,  and wish they paid me to shop at Marshalls, I spent my own money, and I did not receive any form of compensation for this post.
