I, for one, thought this straightener would be awesome, just because it looks awesome. It has a digital temperature display, and you can adjust the temperature all the way up to 450 degrees. I use it on 450 degrees, because from previous experiences, I know that temperature works the best on my hair. It's very light weight, and has a really long cord on it, so you don't have to hug the power outlet.
I found the flat iron holder to be very useful. I remember getting fussed at when I was younger because the heat from the straightener would make the bathroom counter so hot, and it would start to smell weird. My daddy always wanted us to keep a close eye on it so it wouldn't damage the counter, and he was always worried we would walk out of the house, leaving the straightener turned on, and it would catch on fire. With this holder, it's off of the counter, and it has open areas in it, so the heat can escape, and the straightener is made to cut off after thirty minutes of inactivity, which is great for those of you who are often very forgetful.
One thing I have always been skeptical about it is the thermal shine sprays. I always thought, there is no way that can work. Well, the KQC Thermal Shine Spray can be used on wet or dry hair, and I used it on my hair while it was dry. It doesn't leave a greasy feeling like I thought it might would. It's not heavy either. I thought it would probably drench my hair, but it's very light and airy. I don't really like the smell of it, as it smells like men's cologne, and one that I wouldn't exactly like. I used it, then used the Avanti straightener, and I loved the results. I used to have little pieces of hair on the top of my head that would stick straight up in the air when I straightened my hair, but it held them down, and I got several compliments on how great my hair looked compared to normal. Check out the difference.

This past Christmas, I got a gift I had been wanting for a very long time, a robe. I remember when I was younger, my cousin had a pink one from Aeropostale with monkeys on it, and when I seen it, I knew I had to get one. Therefore, when I ripped off the wrapping paper at Christmas, and found a long sleeve, fleece, pink robe, I was so happy. I wore it just about everyday. My only complaint was, it was extremely warm, which is great for winter, but here in the south, if you wear a fleece, long sleeve robe during summer, you're subjected to have a heat stroke. So, my newest robe is my summer time robe.
I got the chance to review a nice, half sleeve, personalized satin kimono robe from Get Unrobed. I have to say, I really love this robe. I have always been a fan of satin, the silkiness is just heavenly. I had mine personalized with my initials in pink on a black robe, in cursive letters.
They are quite long in length, and with me being on the shorter side, it's longer than it should be. That's okay though, I like how it fits. They are meant to be worn loosely, well with being 38 weeks pregnant, mine is a tad on the tight side around my belly, but it'll fit like it's suppose to eventually. I have to say as far as the robe itself, I was very impressed. Their shipping, I was very unhappy with. I was supposed to receive this back in November, and just got it a few days ago, two and a half months later. Their website claims embroidered items are shipped within four days of ordering, but that was not the case with me at all. These particular robes are available in these colors: red, blue, black, white, and dark pink. Available in sizes small up to xxxl. You can have up to three letters put on it, and can choose from a variety of colors for the threading. These robes cost $29.99, but are on sale right now for $25.77.
These robes are great, but if you are in a rush to get it, I'd order earlier than you need it.

Every time here lately when we go to town, I notice just how many people rely on their cellphones and tablets. I, personally, don't have a tablet, well I do, but my charging port broke out of it, and it's out of commission. I have my iPhone, and I rely on it for mainly entertainment. I use wifi based texting, although it's useless when I leave the house, it's free while I'm here. I keep games on mine, and when I have a doctors appointment or have to go somewhere, I can keep myself occupied while waiting or riding. Most people keep their phones or tablets as a source to contact someone if they are in need of them. Since my phone isn't really used all that much, I don't put much into it. It don't have a case, or a screen protector. The screen is scratched up quite a bit. So for my phone, it's a little late to invest in things like that for it.
My husbands phone is a new iPhone 5s, and he takes really good care of it. It has to have a case on it at all times, and although it's worn out, his beat up Otterbox must be on it when he goes to work, so that if it gets ran over by the tractor he's operating (again!) then he doesn't have to worry too much about it. But, who wants to walk around with an ugly beat up case on such a nice phone all the time?
Hard Candy Cases has a variety of cases for iPhones, and tablets. These cases include the Shock Drop case, which is durable enough for the working man (or woman), and the cool looking Neon Bubble cases, and so many more. Their sister site Gumdrop Cases has a large variety as well.
The Neon Bubble Cases are very stylish and I honestly love how they look. If they had them for iPhone 3gs, then I might would invest in a pretty pink one for my own phone. But, since they don't, my husband got a neon orange case. It fits very snug, and clips all around. The buttons are left uncovered, and so does the screen, so I wouldn't suggest taking your phone near water with this case, because if you drop it, your phone is done. These are attention grabbers, as everyone has noticed it and keeps complimenting it. Take a look, it's pretty cool, right? If your looking for a case with a good grip, this probably wouldn't be one for you, as it is quite slick and will slip right out of your hand.
Looks good on his phone, and I'm quite frankly jealous that I don't have one. If you want to try one, you can purchase them at the Hard Candy Cases website for $34.95, and they come in neon orange, green, blue, and pink.
Or you can enter to win any case of your choice from Hard Candy Cases or Gumdrop Cases! It can be a phone case or a tablet case, whatever you like.

(The snifty pens are the two on the outside)
The snifty pens are just so cool. They are scented pens, no, the ink isn't scented, which would be really awesome, but the pen itself is. The first one smells like chocolates, and it smells so good, it's my favorite. The second one smells like cherries, well it's supposed to, to me, it don't quite smell like cherries, but it still smells good, it's my husbands favorite. These would keep kids occupied for hours, but they probably wouldn't use them for doodling, they would most likely sit around and smell them all day, like I'm tempted to do.
Here is the gem on top.
Lastly, they have new twisty pens with Valentine's Day designs, and a cute gem on top. I think these are so cute, and would give any woman's work space or little girl's drawing area, an adorable flair. What I love about these pens, and all PCA pens, they are very neat, and do not write and leave sketchiness through your writings from lack of ink, or lack of quality. These would be great for a little extra for a Valentine's Day gift, or for yourself.
You can buy the Valentine's Day twisty pens with the gems here, and here. And, the Snifty pens can be bought here, and here.
Keep in mind that because these pens are $2.75 (twisty pens) and $3.00 (snifty pens), they are add-on items on Amazon, so you'll have to purchase something else to get these. So, you can buy a 4-pack of one design from PCA, for $10.00, and add on these as extras.
(Disclaimer: I was sent four pens from PCA, one of each shown above, to review for the company. The pens was my compensation for the review, and I was not paid for this. This post contains my thoughts and honest opinions.)

(Sorry about that glare)

I have to have mine shortened so that it's holding my belly, and sides up, so that my back is fairly straightened out. Everyone is different, so for you, the first or second example may help you more.
