Big & Sexy Effortless Curls: The Curling Iron I Use



So lately I have been able to achieve these BOMB, AMAZING, Victoria Secret-esque curls by using the Rowenta Curl Active 1.25" Black Curling Iron. My dad purchased this curling iron back when it was "deal of the day" at best buy, probably about a year ago, but it's still available for purchase.  The crazy thing about this curling iron is that it actually has a barrel that spins automatically when you press the button. I've tried it before and it really works; however, I like being in control when it comes to curling my hair so I don't utilize that option. I curl towards my face instead of away and it just looks so amazing and effortless every time!

What's your favorite hair tool or beauty product at the moment?

Halloween Treats: Band-Aids and Q-Tips

There's nothing like eating good ol bloody bandaids and waxy Q-tips... as long as they're made out of graham crackers, marshmallows, and frosting. These treats are prefect to make ahead of time for a halloween party or just to make with your children. Jacob (my nephew) thought the bandaids were hilarious! After he laughed at them, he ate them... all. I literally didn't get to try one but if they are kid approved then they must be good! 


For the bloody bandaids you will need:
Graham crackers
Marshmallow Creme 
Red Icing


Break up the graham crackers and set aside. 


Using a butter knife, apply marshmallow creme onto each graham cracker piece in the shape of a square.  


Now to make your bandaids bloody simply place a dot of red frosting over the marshmallow creme. Then use a tooth pick to swirl the frosting around. 
 That's it! So fast and easy! And awesome for halloween! 




For a bonus treat, I dipped left over tooth picks in marshmallow creme, added a mini marshmallow at each end, and dipped the marshmallows in peanut butter for...waxy used Q-tips!!!! hahaha! It's so gross yet delicious all at the same time.

POTW: IT'S OCTOBERRRRRR!!!!!

 Wow! I can't believe it's already October and I REALLY can't believe I haven't done a POTW (Pictures of the Week) post in about 3 years. I've been so busy prepping for our family Christmas party... yes, CHRISTMAS party. If you aren't familiar with our Christmas parties, check the tab CummingsChristmasParty on the left side of the blog. Anyway, just because I'm prepping for Christmas doesn't mean I still can't enjoy the fall season. Over the past couple of weeks I have managed to put together my fall tray and come up with the most AMAZING pumpkin spiced latte (recipe) EVER. Like... not to toot my own horn or anything BUT my pumpkin latte is way better than Starbucks. Yup, you heard that right. And guess what? I drink my own pumpkin latte almost everyday. Everyone loves to ask for my recipes but the thing is, I usually don't measure anything. I just experiment until it tastes good. However, I will try to come up with measurements to post because it is too darn good to not share. It tastes like a legit pumpkin pie. Yum yum yum! 
In this POTW you will see a ton of candles... because it's not fall if you aren't burning multiple candles, my fall tray, and coooookies! 

Do you decorate for fall?
