Curly Caity

Caity and I love doing the whole girly thing and whilst birthday shopping for myself a few weeks ago, I came across these fabulous new hair curling spirals called Curlformers. They don't require any heat or products, just simply wash your hair as normal and pull small sections through the spirals with the special hooky thing, let you hair dry (we go with overnight to be sure), remove and voila - beautiful bouncy curls that will last all day!

They have different sizes for different sized curls and hair lengths, as you can see in the pictures my lil bear has very long hair so we need to use the extra long and wide size. I picked up these great fun curlers from Sally Beauty Store, but I believe you can get them online and the company link is above. What I really love about them is their ease of use, it takes me 20 - 30 minutes to put them in her hair, 5-7 minutes to remove in the morning and theres no chemicals or harsh heating involved that will damage the hair.

On the down side, I don't think these would be too easy to put in your own hair, I did try and it is doable but not exactly easy. Your hair also takes quite a long time to dry when in them so wearing them overnight is definately the best idea, however lil bear says they are annoying to sleep in! All in all I think these are great, they do produce some beautiful curls, are easy to use and don't do any damage to your hair.

Crazy Dreams & Invisible Mice

Okay, now firstly I already know I'm a little fruit and nutty, but last night/this morning definitely confirms it.

Was up late, yes I had a little wine before bed, okay a few glasses but it WAS my birthday after all. 4am I wake up having the weirdest dream, I don't know if I was the child or the attempting to help the child in the dream, that part is now too blurred, but I do distinctly remember either explaining or being explained to how to act underwater when your drowning so that it's just like falling asleep and you don't feel the panic.

Really freaky ... yet oddly I woke feeling relatively calm

Then as I lay there attempting to fall asleep again I suddenly hear a rustling in the corner of the room that sounded like something crawling around on some paper. Thinking it's my little Sasha (kitty) I call out to her and the noise stops and then silence. Okay so this now totally freaks me out and I grab the funky flashlight from the nightstand and crank that sucker up and aim for the corner.


Scan the room ...


Now I'm totally freaking out ... get up and constantly cranking that recharge handle the search in the corner begins revealing nothing other than some wrapping paper, paper bag of husbands junk and my pink pom poms ... yes I have pom poms!

Now I'm doing a Nancy Drew, the house is thoroughly searched ...

Fat Cat is sleeping on the sofa ... definitely NOT the rustler

Sasha kitty is sleeping on a dining room chair near the woodstove ... NOT the rustler!

So now I'm awake, playing around in the forums and contemplating going back to bed ... over ... and over ... I will go back sometime ... flashlight in hand and ready to pounce the phantom rustler and whomp it on the noggin with it!
