I never understood my girlfriends’ obsessions with hand creams.  You know the girls who :-

  • Carry hand creams in their handbags
  • Have hand creams in their own car AND in their partner’s car AND next to the bathroom sink AND on their bedside table AND in the fridge (okay, I made that last one up!)
  • Apply hand cream every hour on the dot

Well, I finally get it.  Kinda.

Now that I’ve had a baby (it’s ALWAYS about the baby!), I can truly appreciate a luxurious hand cream which will not only keep your hands lovely and moisturised like baby soft skin but also, keep the dreaded hand wrinkles at bay!

Me Time AKA Indulging in Whatever Tickles My Fancy

indulging in whatever tickles my fancy

Fantastic news!  Hubby got a job which he started last week which explains the lack of posts due to full-on SAHM (stay at home mum) duties.  And boy, I seriously underestimated how a mini human could keep me so busy!!

Don’t get me wrong, I love my little fambam dearly but when they went on a Daddy Daughter Date recently (they actually went supermarket shopping in Coles hehe), I was beyond ecstatic to have a couple hours of “me time” to indulge in whatever tickled my fancy.  The first thing I did was strip naked…

I’ve Found A Potent Remedy For Dry Hair From Aveda

Aveda Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil

What do you think about the saying – “Good things come in small packages”?

Personally, I don’t always believe that is true.  For example, I much prefer a LARGE McDonald’s fries and I prefer to watch TV in a LARGE 50″ screen rather than squint my eyes watching a small matchbox TV.  (hehe, yes, I have couch potato tendencies!)

But then again, there are awesome small-sized things, such as babies (I love my baby!!) and this amazing little bottle of hair oil goodness that is Aveda Dry Remedy Daily Moisturizing Oil.

Look Like A Pretty Little Liar With Remington Perfect Curls

If you haven’t watched Pretty Little Liars before, you need to get on it ASAP!  I love it!!!  It’s an American teen drama mystery / thriller TV series where there are no vampires nor werewolves (yay!) and it’s not as shallow as Gossip Girl and it’s younger than Desperate Housewives.  Whenever I watch an episode of Pretty Little Liars, I always wish that I could be a Pretty Little Liar too!  I want to have their immaculate make-up!  I want to wear gorgeous clothes!  And I want to have their luscious locks!

Imagine my delight when I discovered that I was one step closer to becoming a Pretty Little Liar.  No, I can’t replicate their flawless make-up…I can’t afford nor fit into the newest hottest dresses in town…BUT I have discovered the secret to gorgeous wavy locks.

3 words – Remington Perfect Curls.

Remington Perfect Curls has amazing features :-

  • Sexy in pink
  • Suitable for hair tong noobs
  • Say ciao to future curling iron burns
  • Guaranteed the same perfect curls every time

The only thing which didn’t work so well for me was due to the thickness of my hair, it took forever to curl all my hair.  The clip which clamps the hair to the curling iron only holds a small amount of my hair each time.  Boo!!

BUT if I curl my hair with Remington Perfect Curls while I watch an episode of Pretty Little Liars, time just flies and by the end of the episode, I know I am one step closer to becoming a Pretty Little Liar.  LOL.

Remington Perfect Curls review

For a bit of va-va-voom (ie. volume) at the roots, I use Pantene Nature Fusion Root Lift Mist or KMS Hot Flex Spray and then  to make my curls last longer, I top it off with some hairspray – the one I’m currently loving is Aveda Air Control Hair Spray.

FYI : All hair products mentioned here were PR samples or from goodie bags.  All opinions are my own – I speak no lies even though I want to be a Pretty Little Liar! 😛

Anyway, have you tried Remington Perfect Curls?  What curling iron are you using?  And do you watch Pretty Little Liars?  Who is your fave character?
