Review: Infiniti Pro by Conair Instant Heat Ceramic Rollers

One of the great things about Winter is that I can blow out my hair and use hot rollers without worrying about humidity interfering with things.

When I was in high school, my Mom would let me use her Clairol Travel Hot Rollers, and she eventually let me keep me. Fast-foward twenty years, and I’m STILL using them! I really like these hot rollers, but lately the edges have been breaking off.

I can’t tell you how mamy times I’ve burnt my fingers. But I guess that’s what happens after 20 years of wear and tear with my thick hair.

I’d finally had enough, and I decided to try a newer updated hot roller. After researching the different options out there, I decided to go with the Infiniti Pro by Conair Instant Heat 20 Ceramic Flocked Rollers.

I wasn’t sure how my hair would turn out, given the fact that I’ve never used ceramic rollers before. But the curlers actually did a great job! The rollers heated up pretty quick, and the clips that came with them were super easy to use. The rollers come in four different sizes – Jumbo, large, medium, and small. This was great, since my older rollers were all one size.

As you can see from the before and after photo below, my hair turned out awesome. As an added bonus, they included a bottle of Argan Oil Treatment, which took away any frizz that I had and made my hair feel extra smooth and shiny.

Overall, I’m very happy with my decision to go with the Infiniti Pro by Conair ceramic rollers. They’re reasonably priced ($39.99 at most retailers), they work as advertised, and the results speak for themselves!

If you’re in the market for hot rollers, definitely give these a shot!

Just Saw My Dream Car At The Detroit Auto Show

2015 Audi S3

The Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS) is one of the biggest auto shows of the year, and my husband was out there for the media preview this year. While I would have loved to come along, I couldn’t get off of work, so I had to settle for his pictures instead.

While there were a lot of cool cars on display at the show (2015 Ford Mustang, Toyota FT-1 Concept, Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge Concept, 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class, etc), the one car that really caught my attention was the 2015 Audi S3.

I’ve always been an Audi fan, but I can’t afford the A5 or A7, and frankly the A4 is a little boring looking. The S3 looks to fit the bill with an affordable price (around $40K), amazing performance, great styling, and it’s limited production means I won’t see one everywhere I go. (Here in Yuppieville, luxury cars are a dime a dozen)

The S3 doesn’t come out until later this year, but you better believe that I’ll be at the dealership as soon as one comes in so I can test drive it for myself. And if all goes well, this might just be my new car!
