Tweezers Are a Girl’s Best Friend

17 Apr

I don’t know if this only happens to me, but having toddlers in the house causes things to come up missing.  Some things I can forgive and forget. But when I went to get my tweezers the other day from the spot I ALWAYS keep them and they weren’t there, I had to gasp and then take a deep breath!  OK, OK, I should know better than to put valuables two feet off the ground, even if they are in a drawer.

Luckily for everyone this turned out for the best.  I went to Walgreen’s to find another pair of tweezers and after looking at my options I decided on the Revlon Expert brand (mostly because they were on sale).

I have been so happy with these that I am afraid my eyebrows are getting a little thin!  These babies make for precision plucking.  Some may be asking, “Why don’t you just wax?”  Call me crazy, but tweezing is like therapy!

Watch this video for a tutorial on shaping and plucking eyebrows and let the fun begin.  I still do not have the razor she uses, but if you end up using it, you have to let me know how it works!

Taylor Swift Ringlets

6 Mar

I have been wondering how Taylor Swift does her hair for years.  Well, I purchased a Hot Tools tapered curling iron on friday and I can finally create those gorgeous ringlets!  Let’s just say it was a fabulous friday! It is easy and literally only takes five to ten minutes depending on how much hair you are working with.  Now I just need to grow my hair out…..

I was honored to be able to do the up-do’s for a fashion show my church put on Friday night so I got plenty of practice with my new find.

I realize that some of you probably think this is old news, but here in my neck of the woods we get the fashions a little late.  I was only tipped off to this tool last month by a friend, and then noticed someone purchasing it at the beauty supply store a few weeks ago.  SO, my kids will be wearing ringlets all over town and I will be beaming as I watch their hair boing and bounce!

This hair-do put a spring in her step!

Watch this video for a how-to and make sure if you are going to purchase a clampless curling iron it comes with a heat protectant glove.  This makes it much more easy to use.

Go to hottools.com to buy the Hot Tools brand or ask your stylist about it.  I like Hot Tools brand because, like the name says, they get hot!  You only have to hold the hair on for 10 seconds on medium heat.  I have had Hot Tools curling irons for over ten years that still work great!  If you find another brand you like and would recommend, I would love to hear about it.
