scünci® Hair Accessories! Great for holiday glam…or holiday gifts {review + giveaway}

 

I don’t know about you, but I really enjoy getting new accessories for my hair. Too often there’s not a whole lot of pizazz going on with hair, I’ll admit. Being a mom of two little ones under the age of five years old more time is spent getting them ready and out the door than myself! Thus you’ll 90% of the time see me sporting a pony tail. But, hey my pony tail or other means to pull up my hair doesn’t have to be boring, by any means!

scünci is a company that offers all sorts of fantastic stylish hair accessories! They are totally one of my tops picks when finding that extra special little styling accessory when it’s called for. I’ve been using their products for years and all have stood the test of time in being long lasting!

Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics

 

P1100391

When I opt to purchase top quality hair accessories, I always go with Goody! Goody has a wide variety of products that can suit any hair type and personal fashion preference! Thanks to Influenster, I received Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics to try out and share my thoughts upon.

Every Summer when it gets really warm, I have the strongest tendency to want to chop nearly all my hair off.  But then I know I’ll regret that decision later. So what I tend to do is wear my hair up  in a clip or in a braid. I don’t often swing a ponytail because most hairband tend to leave an imprint in my hair from wear it was being worn.

Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics make keeping hair pulled back, up, or any other way a lot more fashionable than your regular hairband. After wearing these for over a week, I’m deeming to get more! These come in attractive colors of purple, silver, gray, black, and pink. The colors almost shimmer! I love this variety but am hoping to see more combinations in the near future.

These elastics haven’t left any imprint on my hair and they don’t snag. The elastics held my thick hair as well as my daughter’s very thin hair very well! If not being worn right away, I like that I can wear these around my wrist without them looking silly or unattractive. These are great for wearing with attire that’s casual or a little more dressed up.

Sinful Shine Nail Color with Gel Tech {review} #SinfulShine

P1100411
IMG_20130713_103936Have you heard about Sinful Shine Nail Color with Gel Tech? I hadn’t before Influester sent me a complimentary bottle to try out. And I’m glad they did because this is some pretty fabulous and fun fashion for my nails!

The color I tried out was Wisp (white) & right after loving that polish so much, I decided to purchase Pragmatic ( a gorgeous shade of purple). I’ve been wearing this nail polish for about 3 days on my toes and finger nails.There’s been no chipping! I used two coats of polish as directed and didn’t use any sort of top coat product at all.

The nail polish goes on well, there’s minimal scent if that sorta of thing bothers you. I’ve found it to dry fast and the color and shine (5x more glossy than a Patent leather shoe) is amazing!

I’m a real fan of this nail polish and hoping to grab several more colors because these are for a limited time exclusively at Walgreens. The price is pretty affordable at just $2.99 a bottle.

Other things to consider is that these nail polishes are made in the USA & are Oluene, formaldehyde and DBP free. There are 32 shades total in this line currently, so hurry on over and find a color for yourself! Let your friends in on it too!
