One styling products and a discount

Hi friends!

How is life treating you on this cozy Monday night? I’m doing very well, thanks for asking (as if you are sitting in front of me asking). Today was a long but good day. I’ve been trying to sell some jewelry (for my giveaway) to co-workers and I feel funny about it! I’m totally not a natural “sales person.”

But ya know, you should totally buy some. Wink. ;-)

Anywho, you know what’s really nice?

Last Friday, I was invited (with some other Cleveland bloggers) to check out some hair stylin’ tools through ONE Styling and Verge Styling (carries the Bubble Wand and Curl Styx).

When I first received this invitation from Kimberly, I did not feel worthy. I mean, I am lucky if I can style my hair beyond pony tail. I consider it a success if my hair stays down all day without putting it up. I have only recently began to appreciate my dark brown hair (there was that one time in graduate school when I dyed my hair black. Ahem). I’ve needed hair interventions, haircuts, and a sexy librarian look to give myself the hair confidence I need.

Maybe I’m going a little but overboard, but I am not good with hair.

That’s why, the more I thought about it, the more I realized I was a perfect candidate for this event since I am clueless. Soon, I found out that these tools are exactly what my hair is needing.

These tools are innovative and simplistic at the same time. Look at the Bubble Wand on the left… (and keep your mind out of the gutter). That is a curling iron which provides different size curls. I love that because I’m not a “uniform” type of person. I’m messy. I’m creative. I don’t like matching. That’s why I feel like the Bubble Wand and myself are meant to be.

I’ve been using the Epic Medium Straightener and so far, it blows my old Chi Straightener out of the water. You can even pick the level of temperature you want. (To be honest, I did not know which temperature to use! I texted Kimberly and we quickly determined to start at 350 degrees and work my way up.) Also, the straightener turns itself off once it hasn’t been used for 45 minutes.

This is Joe Kim (Chief Marketing Officer) and Kimberly. Joe, like everyone we met that night, was so kind and gracious to us. It’s nice seeing good hearted people behind such innovative products.

Each blogger was able to experience the hair tools first hand with our own stylist.

Most bloggers went for the curly look. Since it was right before St. Patrick’s Day, many of us were hoping the curls would last through Saturday. Or, we wished we had plans later ;-)

Like everyone else, I went for curls. My stylist, Jennifer, showed me how to curl my hair using the straightener. I’ve tried this before, but she showed me different techniques to use. It seems difficult, but after awhile I know I’ll get the hang of it.

Curlz.

Coupon Code Time!

Thank you, ONE Styling, for having us Cleveland bloggers. We really appreciate the hospitality and products. I can’t want to improve my hair stylin’ skills with these products.

{Side note: One Styling provided me with a bloggers gift bag containing hair tools in order to give an honest assessment. My opinions are my own and that’s just how it is. Trust me, I will tell you the truth because I care about you and the well-being of your hair (mane? fro?).}

**********

After the event, my Menchies radar starting going off when I realized we were exactly 5 miles from the nearest store. Quickly, I grabbed Kimberly and Crystal and we rushed over to fulfill our frozen yogurt addictions. Actually, this was Crystal’s first time. Kimberly and I were happy to introduce her to the goodness.

To cake batter, rainbow sprinkles, plastic spoons, oreo crumbs, and lotsa love. Menchies cheers!

xo,

Julie

I felt like a total princess that night! My hair looked awesome the next night – I went from Shirley Temple tight curls to gorgeous hair at the party. THANK YOU for popping my Menchies cherry – it was AMAZING! I’m sure that had something to do with the company… :o)
