Bright Summer Look: Maybelline Spirited Seas

Welcome back!

I recently created this bright Spring/Summer look to celebrate the end of
winter! It was a long, tough Winter so I couldn't wait to pull out my blues and pinks
and really come up with some fun looks for you guys.

I think this bright seasonal look is still wearable and something that you
can wear for date night or a family BBQ. And while looking for some sunny
inspiration, make sure to visit Katherine's Corner where you'll find great recipes,
DIY, fasion and more!

Check out the video below for the play by play ;)

TIGI Bed Head Wave Runner Review & Demo

Here I am again with another review and demo, but I can't help myself...
I love it!

Today I'm sharing my thoughts ont he TIGI Bed Head Wave Runner. If you want to see the live demo check out my YouTube video below!

This is a $25, 2 barreled wand that you clamp down on your hair for a few seconds and 
presto, perfect waves! Only it’s not that simple. You clamp down, open, carefully move the 
wand down a few inches and repeat. Sounds a bit tedious right? 

Well, because it is. 

Let me specify that I have super dry hair that is somewhere in the middle of curly and wavy. It takes me about 20 minutes to flat iron and 40 minutes to curl with my NUME clipless wand. The Wave Runner took a full hour and I had to use a LOT of hairspray to get it to stay. 

But it does look beautiful. I actually love the mermaid-like waves this hair tool leaves me with. What about the next day, you ask? Don’t count on waking up with loose casual waves. I had to use a flatiron to get my hair in normal condition again so the beauty is short lived. I hope I’m not coming off as a negative Nancy but I’m just kind of floundering in the middle of not loving it not hating it. 

The look it gives is amazing but everything else was a turnoff. How long it took, lack of 
staying power, my hair getting caught in the screws. Yikes! Now, if your hair is a bit 
shorter than mine or finer I think this could be the product for you! It wouldn’t take 
nearly as long and might even hold a better wave. Check out the video below:

The Wave Runner is genius for creating that unique mermaid look that everyone is loving right now. But I got places to go and people to see. I don’t have time to just be sitting there for an hour! 

So all in all, I would give the Wave Runner a 3 out of 5 stars. Results are great, 
price isn’t bad but the process is just too tedious for this gal!
