Hey AME readers! Any of you who’ve seen pictures of me in the past may know me to have had long hair which required enough maintenance to keep it tame and honestly it finally got on my nerves. In spring 2019 when I won a free salon visit through a Facebook giveaway and I went for a "new me" makeover. I had my hair cut shorter which requires styling even in a chin-length bob.

In the past, I used my old hairdryer and round brush styling technique. This method works to an extent but usually, my arms get tired halfway through styling so my hair never ends up looking how I want it; round and bouncy. 

Winner of Allure’s 2019 Best of Beauty Award, Revlon brings us an easier and quicker way to get our hair done almost as if we just stepped out of the salon without the salon-style price tag.



The Revlon Salon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer is a hairstyling game changer in my life and here’s why: I can now get a blowout, at home in half the time it would take me to dry my hair with my traditional hairdryer. 

It’s got a unique oval brush design with tangle-free combination bristles (nylon pin and tufted bristles) to quickly create frizz-free volume starting at the roots and beautiful, full-body curls at the ends with a single pass. It’s ceramic coating evenly distributes heat and it’s boosted by IONIC TECHNOLOGY™️, drying hair faster with less damage. 



This hair tool looks big and bulky but it’s actually lightweight and much easier to use than my brush and dryer combo. It’s got a tangle-free swivel cord which makes one-handed hairstyling a breeze. It also comes with a (limited) 4-year warranty, just in case. 

I love my new Revlon Salon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer. It takes no time to dry and style my hair exactly how I want it, even when I’m half asleep in the morning. It also doesn’t leave my hair feeling dry, looking wiry or frizzy. My hair now always feels like I just spent some cash getting a blowout and the funny part is, I’ve never had a professional blowout, until now! 

You can find the Revlon Salon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer at all major retailers - Walmart.ca, Amazon.ca, London Drugs and Bed, Bath & Beyond!

Halloween is coming! My kiddos have already been planning out their costumes for the past few months (I'm not kidding). It’s always a tradition for us to go around as a family, enjoy the night and the kids get to collect some yummy candy from neighboring houses. As the kids get older each holiday celebration changes but we still enjoy them, we’ve made them part of our family history.

In the past, we have used store-bought costumes and have made our own when the kids were small. Now only two out of my three go out "trick or treating". For the teen, it’s a night in guarding the family home and handing out snacks to ghouls and goblins that come to the door while watching a scary movie she otherwise couldn’t watch on our big screen tv because of younger siblings and all. I’m happy to report she’s 15 and would rather settle down with a bowl of popcorn and a scary movie than a Halloween party filled with her peers (and most likely substances she shouldn’t be exposed to). 

Anyway, back to costumes. My son is resourceful (he must get it from his mama!). He chose to be one of my ultimate favourite Star Wars characters; the all-knowing master Yoda! We have a mask and can put together a Yoda-esque style fashion with little to no effort using a bathrobe. Costume #1, complete! 


Little Miss M has had an obsession with PowerPuff Girls after finding them on YouTube. You can imagine what she wants to be for Halloween this year. She’s got blonde hair, you guessed it! She wants to be PowerPuff Girls Bubbles. Bubbles is the blonde one with the blue dress! 

Hello, Google? I need your help! How can I pull this costume creation off? That show is kind of dated and I cannot for the life of me find any kind of memorabilia for a decent price. Enter Pinterest and the amazing DIY PowerPuff Girls costumes I came across! Hallelujah! A long blue t-shirt, black belt or ribbon etc, white leggings and some cute blue hair ties. Voila! We have our Bubbles covered! 



Have your little ones decided what they'd like to be for Halloween? Do you buy a costume every year or are you a money-saving DIYer like me? Let's chat in the comments! :)
