My Favorite Things

Hi all! It's been a little while since I have blogged! Sorry! I am facing a really, really busy time at work right now, so there hasn't been much time for blogging. Please stick with me. I will still be here as much as possible, and I should be back to normal blogging by the end of June! Oh, and I will have a giveaway coming up soon! Yay! I love giveaways!!!

Keep an eye out for my giveaway, but until then I have to tell you about my new accessory! I have been seeing commercials for a new product by Goody. It's called the spin pin, and it claims to help you create that messy (but ultra cute) bun in a matter of seconds.



I couldn't resist buying a set, so I took a little trip to Target yesterday. I spent the rest of the night playing with them. The results?

* They are easy to use, but a little hard to master. I am not confident enough to wear them to work yet, but I would definitely use them during the weekend and on vacation.

*They are a little on the expensive side for a smaller hair accessory-priced at right around $6.

*I definitely think they work best on longer hair. However, they did just fine on my hair which is a medium length with layers.

Overall, I grade the spin pin at a solid B. It isn't a must have, but it is definitely a fun accessory to add to my weekly hair routine!

I just heard about these a few weeks ago from one of my friends who bought them. She really likes them (she has a ton of hair, and it's long) but she said it did take her a while to get good at using them. I guess it just takes practice!
