Madison Reed Holiday Hair Tutorial

Holiday Hair Tutorial - Side Bun with Bling
Disclosure: This post contains affiliate links.
It is holiday party season and if you are looking for a simple, but elegant way to style your hair, you will love this side bun with a bit of bling complements of our friends at Madison Reed.
Holiday Hair Tutorial
How to Create a Side Bun with Bling
1. Start with dry hair. Use a curling iron to add a little texture. We find that second day hair works really well, too.
2. Make a side part. Gather hair below the ear on the side opposite your part for a more dramatic effect.
3. Twist hair and pin into a bun.
4. Add a beautiful barrette right above the bun. Get creative with what you have! In this photo, we took a shiny necklace and pinned it above the bun. Use bobby pins to fasten securely for style that won’t stop.
Even the simplest of styles can be dramatic with a little extra sparkle. Give your hair that extra shine every day with Madison Reed Radiant Color Kit or the new semi-permanent Color Reviving Gloss. Madison Reed's hair color is better for you and better for your hair as it contains no harsh chemicals like PPD or ammonia. Find your perfect hair color now!

Satisfaction Guaranteed.

I like my box fans. When I agreed to try this tall fan, I was a bit skeptical. Im a tower fan now! I love the remote that comes with it so I can control it while Im in bed. It turns very quietly. It isnt completely noiseless though as it does make a small wind fan, but I like that! I need a white noise to sleep. 
It did take me a few more than 10 minutes to put together but thats because Im a clutz! I did get it together after it slipping twice. OOPS! 

Florin 4.5 5 Function Showerhead

I was sent the Florin 4 1/2" 5 Function Showerhead in exchange for my honest review. I was not compensated in any other way. All opinions are my own, as always. 

5 functions: wide, centerjet, aeration, massage and wide + centerjet.
Featuring Air Injection technology for a strong and yet smooth shower experience.
Brass ball joint with polymer shell.
Features Dual Force™ Technology.
Optimizes water intensity even at low pressures.

All this for only $58.00! Get it HERE at 
or to find a retailer close to you.

We live in an older house that seems to use alot of water no matter how hard we try to conserve! Switching out the showerhead isnt only a good idea for conservation, its also a great way to update the look of your shower and your bathroom. Its the little things that make a big difference sometimes. I love the cascading water effect (wide) while the kids like the wide + centerjet. This was a review I looked forward to doing and was not disappointed! I love our new showerhead!

Santa Will Write..To Your Child!

I was sent the Deluxe Package to facilitate my review. No other compensation was given and as always my opinions are my own.

  • Personalized throughout just for your child
  • Shiny red huge envelope with
    fancy address label art
  • Santa's TRUE signature on every letter
  • Siblings receive unique letters
  • MAGIC Santa dust in every letter
  • High quality original stationery
  • Newly written letters each year
  • Your children will always remember
  • Amazing price & value
  • Postage stamp from NORTH POLE

Pick from letters, packages, or even a postcard or book!

I must say that even tho my daughter is 9, she loved getting the big and red package! She sat down and read the sparkly letter from "Santa" and "Rudolph".  She was giddy! She started to put the temp. tattoos on her and her brothers, who did not get a package even though they are younger because they are not mentally in a Santa place. 
If you want your child to get this before Christmas Eve, I suggest you order now!
