Nook - My Review

This last Christmas my parents gave me a Nook Color (an e-reader from Barnes and Noble). I have to admit I hadn't thought about getting an e-reader prior to that, but since I do love to read I was ecstatic to receive one.  There's so much I can do with it and I literally use it every single day.


-You can browse the web on it and watch videos 
-You can download apps
-You can add your friends and share books with them.
-There are tons of books to choose from and you can preview a piece of the book to determine if you'd be interested in reading it.
-You can also subscribe to magazines and newspapers on it as well..

One thing you have to remember though  is that this is something you will continue to invest in and it is a bit expensive to begin with.  Definitely research different e-readers and decide which one is right for you if you plan to buy one...they're all different!

I'm still excited about my Nook even though I've had it for awhile now. I'm reading even more than I used to and I'm always discovering new books.

getting to know me

Hey everyone. I'm in the middle of improving my blog and trying to find different things to do with it. I added my twitter (on the side) so feel free to follow me or just check my updates on here. I figured it might be a nice way to get a little more personal aside from my typical topics. I don't know about you but I like to know more about people I follow aside from their taste in perfume. :) I'd like to make my blog as interactive (and definitely not boring) as possible so have any suggestions? Let me know - all feedback is welcomed!

Hair Repair (Part 2)

This will be my last post in my Hair Repair Series, which is a relief because I'm ready to move on to a new topic already! So let's get on with it...


I've been taking steps to make my hair healthier and grow faster. In the past I would just cut my hair short and let it grow out from there but I wanted to do something different this time and keep it long. 
With this new set of guidelines I've been following I do notice a difference in my hair but only slightly. Here are my observations:


1. Since I wash my hair less often it seems to produce less oil and looks less greasy at my roots.


2. I basically kicked my hair dryer to the curb (ok not completely!) and now I let my hair dry naturally most of the time, which is somewhat reducing damage.


3. My hair feels a bit stronger and more moisturized because of the products I've been using


4. I do have some split ends which a trim would help immensely. 


5. I notice my hair in general is more manageable.


Unfortunately, I don't see a major improvement but I'm going to continue with what I've been doing and see what happens. I'm going to try to be patient but we all know how hard that is when it comes to hair!


Have any suggestions or product recommendations for me? Let me know!
