|Ladies and gentlemen, your Highness has arrived|
I think the biggest complement I got last night was that I look the same as I did in high school. Pretty good considering not too long ago I was getting feedback like "what happened to her?" and "she used to be your hot sister." I'm not where I want to be but I'm working on it...
At Marshalls yesterday morning I found this product called the Topstyler for $29.99. The original retail was around $140 but it's now $40.99 at Target.com so if you can't find one at Marshalls you can always snag one online pretty cheap. I quickly googled reviews while I was in the store and they seemed decent so I went for it. I had purchased a set of hot curlers at Target earlier this year and I get pretty beachy waves for around 5 minutes...and then they fall out. I always believed that if I got a better set maybe it would work better. My vanity prohibits sharing what these did to my hair - I looked like a trussed poodle. After an hour of fussing with the Topstyler curlers, I pulled a couple loose curls out in the front and twisted my hair up into a messy low bun. All the reviews (and YouTube videos that I watched) indicate there is a learning curve - and I agree. Essentially you create finger curls with your fingers or with one of the two combs provided and then clamp them down with heated tourmaline "C-shells". The clips are strong and don't fall out like my other curlers and the curls (unfortunately) held all night. It has a great travel case with room for all the little pieces and a total of 15 clips which is pretty good (I think my set came with more like 20 so I'm not complaining). I'm going to try again soon - next time not right before an event...
|Pretty hair clearly not included LOL...|
In the spirit of not hiding I'm going to share a pic of me and my younger sister from last night. I wish I took more pics or even a full body shot so you can see my outfit but I'm usually the picture taker and hiding from the camera has become a bad habit.
I quickly stopped in Target today and I picked up these polishes on the clearance end-cap. They were all around $1.50 each.
My $25 Julep surprise box came today so this is what you missed out on if you didn't order. I got a total of nine polishes (the trio to the right was my $10 add-on), hand cream, face primer, lip gloss, eye pencil and a bunch of samples. I do like their polishes but post CVS makeup sale it does seem like a waste. The eye pencil is black on one side and a brown coppery glitter color on the other. Besides the polishes I think it's the one thing I'm most excited by. The lip gloss is a pale peachy color - nothing I would wear :(
My brand new $550 Tory Burch knee high boots just came in the mail ($10 score!) but I don't have time to take a pic. Stay tuned for next week!
Have a great weekend!
