It's that time of year that things start to get a little hectic, at least around my house. Thanksgiving is this week which means lot of running around getting ready for time spent with family and friends. Thanksgiving seems like the unofficial kick off to the Holiday season, soon there will be invites coming in for holiday brunches, lunches, dinners and parties. Shopping for new outfits only adds to the stress of the season. With the help of two hairstyling tools from Conair worrying about how to style my hair won't be an issue, and I can have great hair everyday.
Today I am talking to you about the Infiniti Pro by Conair® 3Q™ Brushless Motor Dryer and the Infiniti Pro by Conair® Curl Secret. With the help of these two tools, I was able to quickly and easily create a variety of hairstyles all in less than 30 minutes. A few quick adjustments and I can go from work to any holiday gathering with ease.

You can pick both these products up during your next trip to Walmart, if you are anything like me a shopping trip isn't complete without a quick browse through the health and beauty section anyway. I was able to easily spot the Conair products at my local Walmart. Look for the curling irons and hair dryers section.

As the end of the year and all the festivities that come with it roll around there are many times I want to go out after work and won't have time to go home and change. These are the times I wear outfits that are easy to adjust, and can take me from the office to out for drinks. My hair is naturally curly and straightening it use to be a chore. Using a round brush or a paddle brush with the Infiniti Pro by Conair® 3Q™ Brushless Motor Dryer, I can get my hair completely dry and straightened in about 15 minutes. The ionic technology helps get it smooth and shiny with less frizz and the increased airflow reduces my drying time. This is great for the days I'm a little lazy waking up and need to get ready 

This is a pretty standard work day hair look for me. 
 
Transitioning this look for a night out is really easy, just throw a few of the Conair bobby pins in your purse before you leave the house. A few bobby pins, adding some eyeliner, lipstick and changing my shirt, in less than five minutes I am set to leave work and hit the town. 
 
  • Start by gathering two strands of hair on one side of your head;
  • Twist one strand over the other, grabbing more strands of hair as you work down;
  • As you go around the side and back of your head secure the hair with the bobby pins;
  • You can leave one side loose or continue to gather the hair and wrap in a bun, securing with pins. 
Thanks to the Infiniti Pro by Conair® Curl Secret creating two curly styles was just as easy. I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly and effortlessly I was able to curl my entire head with this tool.  


Using the Infiniti Pro by Conair® Curl Secret is simple, just section your hair off, take a small section of hair and place it in the tool and close. The Curl Secret draws the hair into the chamber and curls it. The tool has two heat levels and three timer settings to help you create varying curl tightness. For this look I used the 10 second setting for a medium curl. Infiniti Pro by Conair® Curl Secret takes the guess work out, the unit beeps to let you know when the curl is set and you can release the hair from the unit.

To transition this curly look for a night out all I did was gather the hair up as if I was creating a bun and pinned it into place.  I added this Conair flower clip on the side for a little extra jazz. 
This is a perfect hairstyle to transition to if you are short on time. I always keep some bobby pins in my purse and in my desk at work. In two minutes without even using a mirror I can change up the look. 
I had been curious about the Curl Secret for a while now so thank you to
 #CollectiveBias for giving me the opportunity to give it a try. 
I already know I'll be using it a lot to create styles for the Holidays.

Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant

Press Sample
#Dermalogica
As I was sitting down to write this post I realized it has been a while since I last had a facial. There was a time back when I didn't have so many responsibilities, that I used to treat myself very often. Way back many, many years ago circa 1999 or so I went to a new spa in my area for a facial and the Esthetician did a skin analysis on me. One of the products she recommended I use was the dermalogica daily microfoliant, and I have used it on and off ever since.

The dermalogica daily microfoliant is a rice-based powder exfoliating powder that is activated upon contact with water and gentle enough for daily use.  Now that my skin is under control, I use this occasionally in my routine and daily the week before mother nature comes to cause havoc on my hormones. That routine has kept the monthly breakouts at bay.

COVERGIRL #GirlsCan Professional Look + Walmart Giftcard Giveaway

Sponsored

I usually watch the news while getting ready in the morning, Good Morning America actually but today I was extra pumped about today's post and listened to some music instead. Beyonce's Run The World was on repeat, WHO RUNS THE WORLD, GIRLS.  Let's face it girls we rock! Today as I prep to head out to the office I am getting ready with the help of a few COVERGIRL products that help me feel polished, professional and put together. 

As I think back on my life I can recall a few times when I didn't think I could do things. I am so thankful that both my parents entitled in me that there was no limit to what I could accomplish, and being a girl certainly was no reason to feel I couldn't do certain things.  

I'm so glad to see the that the COVERGIRL #GirlsCan Campaign is all about empowering women to follow their dreams and turn any can't into a CAN.
