Life is Changed


All because I finally got a GREAT flat iron. The Wal*Mart cheapo I have been nursing along just was not cutting it anymore.
Yeah, if you are thinking "How lame, that's not life changing." You obviously have never dealt with wack-o curly hair. Yeah, my hair is nothing short of insane. But this little number makes it super-straight in a matter of mins. My flat ironing time is now down to about 20 mins, rather than the 45 it used to take. I'm in heaven.

And the plain black iron wasn't in stock, so I went with cherries.

Kaden's vote was for the pink camo iron, but I needed something a little more sublte.

It may not be the exciting life change you were guessing, but this is my life... flat irons and pregnancy. Jealous??

I think it is life changing. I was ecstatic to finally graduate to a ceramic one awhile back!. Anywho, I am living in an itty-bitty town called yucaipa. It's about 15 miles from San Bernardino, 1 hr. from San Diego and 1 hr. from L.A.

You're so funny! I never would have guessed. And for the record, I love your "crazy" curls, but I can definitely understand the need to go straight once in a while.

Love the new iron with cherries. So cute. I've always wanted curly hair. I bet it takes forever for you to straighten those curls you've got.

Ok, hopefully you don't think I'm so rude. I was on the phone with my sister this morning at swim lessons. That's the thing I hate about those ear pieces. I'll see you tomorrow.

Brenda said...

What brand is that cute little number?

Rachel said...

I read there was a survey that asked women "if you could only have one device, what would it be?"

you would think the answer would have been a cell phone or a laptop, but no. The number one answer was a flat iron. Totally necessary. :)

Kate said...

very very life changing. (from a person with crazy wacko hair)
I will talk to you tomorrow about what brand you got. I am happy for you! 20 minutes that you can use doing other things, sweet :)

Sarah said...

I totally agree with you on having a great flat iron. It makes a huge difference. I don't think I've ever seen you with straight hair. You'll have to post some pictures now of before and afters!

Melissa said...

I have a flat iron, but I don't use it very often... maybe I will tomorrow! It is nice when you have the things you need/want so that your hair looks good!!

Sara said...

Oh I need a good new flat iron. I will admit, I still use my WalMart cheap-o one...and I like the cherries too!

It was great to see you on Sunday! Even if it was for 10 seconds :) We will definitely have to get together when I am back down in a few weeks.

Karla said...

I would never have guessed! I just bought a good one a few months ago and I LOVE it...and I already have straight hair!!

debsters said...

I never would have guessed that you were talking about a flat iron. I should have known though because I can't live without mine. My frizzy mane is crazy.

Chell said...

I can more than understand this post! I have had crazy (afro when short) hair my whole life and for my 21st last year my boyfriend bought me a GHD. I went from a 3 hour straightening session to 30 mins.

It. is. life. changing.

Full stop.

Enjoy! :)

Kristi said...

You cut your time down from 45 min to 20?!?!? Where did you get it and how much did it cost?

Stephanette said...

Oh, I'm so jealous. I need product info so that I can be your KS twinky.

kristen said...

Dude!! Hair appliances are oh so important. I completely understand.
