Hair straightening brush

How many of you have seen this device floating around the internet over the past couple of years? Well I finally decided to bite the bullet and try it out. Surprisingly I actually liked it, minus the off putting chemical smell that comes from this particular version that I bought from Amazon. If you want perfectly straight, frizz free hair, then this is not the device for you, I would suggest getting a flat iron. My favorite is the CHI, I have been using mine since high school. This straightening brush is for more natural looking straight hair with a little more volume than a flat iron would give. I find that it takes about the same time to do my hair if I use this device or if I use a flat iron. I have curly, wavy, frizzy mixed hair so this device is perfect for me when I want my hair to look more put together.

One of the things I like the most about this device is that you can control the temperature. Some people find the automatic heat settings on devices too hot, and with this you can us a higher or lower temperature setting based off your personal preference. The one negative about this is that you can get close enough to straighten out your baby hairs, and mine are curly so I have to use the flat iron as well.

Overall I don’t think that this is a device that you need to run out and purchase, especially if you already own a flat iron, but if you are looking for something new or if you had wanted to try this then I don’t think you would be disappointed with your purchase.

Here is the link to the one I bought but there are so many versions out there. I advise you to look at review on amazon before you pick one to buy! hair straightening brush

Happy New Year!

I know! I Know..it has been a million years, but I am back. I hope you all had an amazing 2017 and start to the new year so far. One of my major resolutions for 2018 is to start blogging again. Life got the best of me last year, and between moving and facing new challenges in my life I just lacked the inspiration and time to blog. One of the things I like to do at the end of each year is to reflect on what I can do better or be better at in the next year. For me one of the things that I really missed doing was blogging, because it was a way for me to create and share as well as show my creative side, and a fun way to write and interact with the world.

So hears to all of us doing our best to fulfill all of our resolutions for the years as best as we can. I know that life happens and sometimes it can be hard but if we push through we can achieve all of our goals! Cheers to the new year and I hope you all have a great 2018!

Five Creative DIY Gift Wrap Ideas

I love wrapping gifts in unique and cute ways, sure you could always stick wit the usual printed wrapping paper, but I find that I really enjoy coming up with fun new ways to wrap my gifts!! If you love crafting as much as I do, or just want to mix things up, why not try and one of of these creative options!!

1. Wrap your gift in a plain wrapping paper and tie a ribbon around it. Stamp or write the name of the person receive the gift on the gift. It’s a cute and simple way to wrap your gifts!!

2. Map wrapping. Use old maps as unique and different wrapping paper.

3. Mistletoe! Cut leaves out of some construction paper and glue some red puff balls to your wrapped gift. Who doesn’t love mistletoe!! You can get the red puff balls, and the paper at the dollar store. This is more of a Christmas Holiday wrapping. But you can mix it up and add something else to the top of the gift.

4. Wrap your gift in a plane wrapping paper and draw on it. I could be a Christmas Tree, ornaments, or even mistletoe, but I think that the traditional bow sketch below is super cute and easy to do!

5. Santa Wrapping! Wrap in red wrapping paper, and tape a piece of black ribbon around it. Take some gold construction paper and cut out a little square and a smaller square out of that square and stick it to the black ribbon. You have a santa gift!! This is also more of a christmas wrapping but I still love it!
