Net Books and Flat Irons Galore

My netbook came this week , and I guess this is a bit of a mini haul post as well seeing as how a few things came this week.
This little guy is the Acer Aspire One D255 I'm not going to go into detail about technical information about this because...well I just don't know what I am talking about in that regard  , a computer buff I am not. I got the ruby red one and yes it is ugly ( I like red but not on my laptop). I was thinking of getting it deco'd to decrease it's ugliness but I might not. So far I am happy with it , it meets my basic needs and is super easy to use. Great for me because as I said I don't thoroughly know my way around technology. It was a good buy , I am going to try to take better care of this one than I did my last netbook :(
R.I.P blue acer...

My flat iron came! The  Corioliss Pro Fix Pink Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron I am so happy with this (so far),I bought it from flatironexperts.com and they had a deal going on , that I didn't even know about(love how I pay attention when I'm buying things). When you make a purchase of  $100.00 or more you get a free KQC X-Heat Mini Ceramic Travel Flat Iron , KQC Thermal Shine Spray and a FIE iron holder to keep your flat iron in! They say it's an 80 dollar value but by my calculations it's really about 69 dollars but still these were pretty generous free gifts and I was really happy when I got these because I wasn't even expecting it. ( I think that offer is over  now but they always have new ones up).
Also free shipping on orders 75 dollars or more. I ordered on the 20th and it arrived on 28th pretty decent since I believe the company is located in Canada. I bought this because I wanted an iron that would last me  a long time. I first heard of this iron when I saw a tutorial on youtube and the girl said she has had this iron for four years and never had any problems with it so that was pretty impressive seeing as how I see people go through cheap irons like they go through tissue during a nasty cold. Also on the site itself there were lots of good reviews so I figured I'd go for it.
These two irons don't have adjustable temperature settings they both have a power of 410 degrees fahrenheit and just have an on/off switches, so that concerned me at first but when I used them they worked so good! But if you prefer to have that control this probably isn't the greatest idea in the world to you.

 My hair gets a bit of a wave(an annoying ugly wave) to it since I don't blow dry it, not a real challenge for a flat iron. I mainly got this so I could blend my hair with my synthetic extensions more easily, have sleeker hair of course and flat irons double as curling irons but I really don't wanna use it for that.

So for a real go at it's capabilities I ran it through my niece's super curly hair(I've mentioned my niece in just about every one of my posts XD weird) and viola!  Silky smooth!
I really don't think I could be happier with this iron. The mini iron is great for bangs ,which I don't have, but I'll be trying it on my clip in bangs from seller bluebutterflyhairextension on ebay that are supposedly flat iron friendly and have the results up in a future post.

Still trying to find a place for my stand on the overly crowded bathroom countertop lol

Lashes came too!

They're not as dramatic as I had hoped, pretty natural looking actually .
^This actually wasn't a makeup shot it was just taken from a picture were I was blinking after I realized I didn't have a picture of the top of the lashes lol


And last but not least I finally got the Hilary Duff With Love perfume! I love it, it's so not the norm for celebrity scents, very spicy,woody and mature you can really smell that mangosteen. It lasts a really long time too! I was scared I wouldn't like it because people seem to have mixed reactions on this one since it's not like the mainstream fruity floral typical celebrity scents. I live in a small out of the way town were I never get a chance to smell perfumes before I buy them, so 90% of the time I buy my perfumes on blind faith after researching the notes and I have yet to be disappointed :D

Why do I buy these things?

I was going out the other day to buy another acer netbook because mine finally crapped out on me, because I didn't take great care of it. My mom needed one too so we just decided to go together. They were out of the netbooks so I couldn't get one. My mom needed a computer now though so she just bought a different one, I had my heart set on the netbook because it's cute,small and does it's job >:O so I decided to wait instead. We decide to look through some of the other stores in the plaza just to "look" but I came home with these.
A Harajuku Lovers Hot Stuff ,Wicked Style bag. I really wish I didn't like this brand's bags so much but I am so drawn to the little charms every time and the Gwen charm was no exception.
I also found this Tokidoki Felice hobo bag in the Americana print, I was leaning toward not buying it until I saw the adorable print and I do love Americana, it has the classic cars , jukeboxes and little Fonzie looking guys combing their hair and dancing with their chicky pies XD so cute ! My mom saw it and said "That looks like you." I would have to agree.
Again the little charms always help.
Also needed new sunglasses, my niece broke my old ones and the only other ones I have are shaped like hearts, awesome yes, but not for everyday. Finding sunglasses that look good on me is always a challenge , but these Steve Madden ones fit my face really good ,they were one of the first pairs I tried on and then went through a bunch of others only to come back to these.
The leopard printed sides were a huge selling point for me.
I also got a new shelf for my room and a few presents for my brother for his birthday, so that's what I came back with after saying, "I'm not spending any money here,I'm just looking." I bought a netbook online instead it should be here in a few days and it's an ugly red one. I wanted the purple one but apparently nobody has them anymore. I always get stuck with a color I don't want. 

So I say I'm going out for a computer and I come back with everything random that isn't a computer typical....

Elf Lip Products review.

This is a follow up to my elf haul post just for anyone who is curious about how well the products actually work. I was a bit apprehensive about taking the pics of the product on because really whose mouth looks good that close up? That and I have scars on and around my lips from when my dog attacked me as a baby :( AND I am not wearing any make up around my mouth...should have at least done that  XD but oh well. If you click the pictures they do get larger so you can see the color better but do it at your own risk.
