BTGH1Woot! Woot!

OH!!! And get this!!!! Though they don’t mention any of the contributors by name, Huffington Post had this to say:

Wallis Fashion 30% off EVERYTHING Flash Event

Standard

I forgot to tell you guys about the last big WallisFashion.com sale, so I had to tell you about this one! Through this Saturday, December 1st, EVERYTHING in the store is up to 30% off aaaaaaand it also looks like they are giving an additional 10% off your purchase with discount code: SALE 10 (don’t know if that runs through Saturday, but just google discount codes and try WALLIS10 too as that has worked for me several times!)!! Also, there’s FREE SHIPPING on all orders over $30!

If you don’t recall, this is the other reasonably priced online UK seller (Asos being the first ;)) from which I purchased that awesome leopard print skirt that I showed you guys here , here and here.

At the last big sale, I picked up this really cute peplum skirt and jacket … which fit, but will fit a lot better once I lose about 5 pounds (Operation “Get Right” is on Day 3 today; Ahhhhhhh here it go!!!).


Once I lose those 5 pounds, I’ll take it on a test drive and will share pics for sure!

Now, with this up to 30% off EVERYTHING sale, plus the additional 10% that you can get off all purchases with discount code: SALE 10, I’m eyeballing this black crepe waterfall jacket and black PU pencil skirt. I think these might be great holiday pieces that work well from day to evening too!

My only concerns? Will the waterfalls put a spotlight on my “ample” hips, which I’m aiming to camouflage and is that PU skirt LINED?!? I’m a sweater. This could be a reallllly bad look … and feel … if it isn’t. Hmmm, I guess I could always wear a slip though. PROBLEM SOLVED!! (Seriously, I just figured that out as I was writing this! LOL!!)

A quick note: Wallis has UK sizes with a conversion chart for the US. So, just make certain that you follow that! I’ve found that when I chose an honest US size (8 for skirts = 12 UK size and 6 for tops = 10 UK size) the clothes fit my 5’1″, currently … ughhhh … 143 pound, slightly pear-shaped, hourglass frame well.

Anywho, just wanted to share! Do you guys like when I share discounts and sales at the places that I like to shop? Hope so! Let me know one way or the other in the comments *hint hint* (If you didn’t figure it out, that’s my way of trying to get you guys to comment. It’s been quiet around here for weeks with the exception of that Ebonnet Giveway post!! *lol*)

ETA: Ummm … how about I ordered the PU skirt and forgot about it? It was at my door when I got home from work a few minutes ago!!! LMBO!!!

Perfect fit! I love it when a plan comes together!!

I should order it in the size 10 UK/6 US  too so that I have one for when I lose this weight! That’s what I did with the leopard print! 😉 Yeah, about that losing weight … time to get changed and hit the basement for C25K Day 2!

Speaking of the holidays, what are you planning to wear for dinners and events? Is it already hanging in your closet or are you still trying to figure it out?

Ebonnet Review, Giveaway and Black Friday Discount Code! *CLOSED*

Standard

So, this is one of my suuuuper delinquent posts. See, what had happened was … back in August, Eboni of EboniCurls and I got to “chatting” on Facebook. I had come across her Ebonnets a few months earlier during some YouTube perusing. I think it was a review by Jess of MahoganyCurls that first piqued my interest. Then, I found this YouTube video by Eboni herself wherein she explained and demonstrated the difference between the inferior nylon satin bonnets that we find in the beauty supply stores and the premium charmeuse satin ones that she makes.

via EboniCurls 

After watching this video and realizing how deficient my 50 zillion Sally’s bonnets are, you know the PJ in me was hyperventilating!! But, when I visited Eboni’s shop to feed my habit, she was out of stock *womp womp*. So, being the AADD-suffering individual that I have become (Adult Attention Deficit Disorder for those of you who don’t know;)) , I forgot about the Ebonnets for a while. But, as luck would have it, I “ran” into Eboni on Facebook shortly thereafter. We began “chatting,” I knew her, she knew me, we were all giddy with excitement and, the next thing I know, Eboni was sending me an Ebonnet of my very own! Not only that, it was one of her newest designs and my very favorite print, LEOPARD!! YEA!!! Oh, and one more thing, we decided to collaborate on a giveaway!

Anywho, I got my bonnet immediately and planned on posting the giveaway in October. To tell you the truth, I don’t know what happened!! I had other giveaways going, I was tired, I was distracted, I was unfocused … AADD you know … and I completely let this one get by me despite the fact that I was wearing my bonnet regularly!

Then, serendipity stepped in!! Last week, CurlyNikki shared an article by NaturallyChelsea, The Real Satin Bonnet – Choosing the Right Scarf. This post does a great job of explaining the difference between a quality satin scarf and the inferior nylon satin scarves sold by beauty supply stores. The comments were even more enlightening as several ladies explained that satin is a weave technique  and a finish, not a type of fabric. Who knew?!?! (Well, a few people I guess. ;)) After seeing all of this, I knew that it was perfect timing to resurrect the Ebonnet review and the giveaway!! And, why not throw in a discount code to boot?!?!

So, here we go!!

EBONNET REVIEW

Okay, first Eboni sent me a EboniDreams Ebonnet AND a bonus scrunchie in lovely gift wrapping with a very sweet, personal and handwritten note. It was a pleasure just to receive the package!

Next are the actual EboniDreams bonnet and scrunchie. Wow! These things are so well-made. I was sent a charmeuse satin, double-lined bonnet in Golden Leopard Dreams and a scrunchie in Eco Leopard.

What is charmeuse satin you ask? Well, I’ll let Eboni explain it:

via EboniCurls on Etsy

Charmeuse is a luxury fabric made from silk with a satin finish. It has a floating appearance which drapes very well, especially for formal wear. The fabric is also extremely lightweight, and it has a glossy appearance and extremely soft texture. This fabric should be handled with care, since it is very fragile.

And why is satin superior to cotton?

Cotton may feel warm and cozy, but it is a highly absorbent material that draws moisture from our skin and hair as we sleep. We actually need the oils that are leached by cotton to keep our hair calm and our skin supple. In addition, the weave of a cotton pillowcase acts like an abrasive material, catching individual stands of hair and causing them to tangle and break. That same weave pressed against our faces at night causes our ever-less-elastic skin to crease. And like any other repeated action, those creases can eventually become permanent. A satin pillowcase, on the other hand, allows our face and head to move easily across its surface, avoiding the friction and damage caused by cotton.

So what makes Ebonnets so special?

Ebonnets are handmade with high quality Satin or double lined with Charmeuse Satin, which is made of extremely tightly bound satin threads that provides optimum retention of the hairs natural oils along with providing additional moisture on your hairs delicate strands. Charmeuse allows moisture to stay within the atmosphere of the bonnet which results in soft healthy hair!

Well, I’d have to agree. You can immediately SEE and FEEL the difference between this satin bonnet and your run-of-the-mill BSS variety one. The fabric is opaque, silky smooth and substantive. And, the double-lining is an added bonus! I don’t see any moisture/oils escaping through the Ebonnet to soil my pillowcase while I’m wearing this!

However, after learning that satin is a finish and not a fabric, I did have to ask Eboni:

What type of fabric do you use for your products?

All of my material is Charmeuse satin. Silk is natural and made from worms. I do not use silk. The Charmeuse satin that I use is man made of polyester fibers. … I’ve found that the higher the polyester count, the better it retains moisture. And I say that charmeuse satin acts like silk in what it does for our hair and that it is more durable than silk.

Makes sense to me and the proof is in the pudding! This bonnet is densely woven, silky smooth and durable. And, although I can be a night sweater (ewwww, I know :(), I didn’t find that this bonnet made me hot or sweaty, even though I wore it towards the end of August. So, though it seals in the moisture, it also seems to allow airflow so that my head can “breathe.”

Finally, the Ebonnet is massive and manages to accommodate my big, huge buns when I feel like leaving them in for bedtime. The rope drawstring enables one to “customize” the opening to fit different head sizes. The one thing is that I do have a pea-size head (who would have guessed with this eighthead, right?).  So, if I have my hair pulled back in a low bun, it tends to move around and slip forward and cover my fore … I mean eight … head. I guess this is because the drawstring closure doesn’t cling the same way as elastic.

So, to wrap this long review up, the Ebonnet is a keeper and the quality justifies the cost, IMO. Oh, and the satin scrunchie was a nice bonus! It has some serious elastic and is roomy too!

Now the moment that you’ve all been waiting for …

Goody Goodies!!

Standard

Back in February, I did a post about the Goody So Smooth 2-in-1 Brush, which I’d purchased many years ago. I really liked it, but it had been discontinued. So, I “dug around” and tracked down a seller on eBay who had a few. After purchasing a back-up for myself 😉 and receiving a confirmation e-mail that it was shipping the next day, I told the seller (David) about Hairscapades and the post. He advised me that several of the brushes sold within minutes of the post publishing and all but one sold by the end of the week!!

David then advised me that he carries a lot of Goody items, including discontued merchandise, and was willing to offer my readers a 10% discount on any of his listings!  He simply asked to be contacted via e-mail for direct sale and that you mention “Hairscapades!”

So, if you’ve been looking for hair tools and accessories, like the satin pillow soft rollers pictured above, Comfort Flex barrettes, Ouchless ponytail holders or any other other Goody item, check out David’s Ebay shop: num25bers. If you see something you want, e-mail David at dstein3078@aol.com with the item(s) and let him know that you learned about his store on Hairscapades and he’ll take it from there!

Here are a few items that David currently has available.
