One of my favorite parts of the morning is...

...opening up the egg carton and seeing this bible verse every. single. day. What a reminder!

Flexi Clip Review

I have been very interested in Lilla Rose Flexi Clips ever since I heard of them.

They looked comfortable, easy to use and pretty.
After purchasing and using them they are all of the above.

My first experience was not very good. I looked at all the videos and size information and tried my best to find the size that would work. I got a medium and I was planning mostly to use it to style my hair in a french twist. When it arrived, it did not work. I couldn't do ANY of the styles that they suggested. My hair's fineness and length were just not the correct thickness for the size that I purchased. I suppose it was really my fault that it didn't work. It was just frustrating.

After carefully watching all of the videos and reading the size information once more, I tried purchasing a clip again. I took into account not only the length and thickness of my hair but also what style I wanted to use it for. I love to wear buns. A bun is not one of their listed hairstyles, but I thought it would work. So I pulled my hair into a bun and looked at the videos to see what size I thought would hold that amount of hair. I got an extra large.

The flexi clip came after twenty three days. (I had ordered during a sale and my order had some how gotten lost..)  But though it was a long wait, I tried it on and it worked just how I wanted it to.

The clip works very well in a bun style and it especially works best when my hair is a day to two days old from my last wash. I like this, because my greasy hair can look nice even when I need a shower.

My only complaint is that the clip can only do this one style. I'd have to get a different sized clip for every style that I want to do. That could end up being pricy, but I think this clip will outlast any hair clips out there. (Before I bought this clip, I bought a Walmart claw clip and it cracked in about two and a half weeks!)

So, I am overall very happy with my purchase. The key is getting the right size. Lilla Rose has many different designs to choose from and their products are well made.

Happy Birthday Honey!

Our Labrador retriever is one! She has been a joy and a handful. She requires two walks a day, lots of love and a close eye. She'll eat anything from dog food and peanut butter to socks and tissues!

But we love her. A lot. She lets the kids lie on her, pinch her, hug her and kiss her. She's the perfect companion if you're sick in bed, though she is a bed hog. She is full of energy and fun. Her tail is impressive and she wags it often. We are blessed to have such a sweet friend in our family.
