The most important thing in my life is family. No matter how many ups and downs we go through and however imperfect we are, I will forever be thankful and appreciative of how my parents have raised me and all they have done for our family. Growing up they provided us with a comfortable life and an opportunity for us to find ourselves without any additional parental pressure. They never forced me to be someone I wasn’t and supported my passions, even if it didn’t point towards a high paying corporate job.
There are no words to express how much I miss my mother. She was my role model, my mother and my friend. She passed away in my mid-twenties and through this tragedy, it made us realize all the silly little fights and grudges being held were not worth it. Through this difficult time our family bonded and grew closer. Years later my dad re-married to a wonderful and amazing woman I’m proud to call my stepmom. She is kind, considerate and treats my dad and family with love and respect. I couldn’t be happier my dad found someone he could make a life with, someone who loves him unconditionally.
And that’s why celebrating mothers is important and should be an everyday occurrence. But the fact we can dedicate a whole day to them is even more special. Over the weekend I invited my stepmom, sister in law and her daughter (my baby niece) to come over and get ready before heading to brunch with the family.
Girl time was just what we needed and sprucing up our hair with the new Conair Infiniti Pro Curl Secret 2.0 was way too much fun! Looks can be deceiving, but this product produces different types of amazing curls and is so easy and simple to use. I never thought I could enjoy curling so much! The way the curls rolled in electronically and how it came out perfectly was so satisfying. I especially loved playing around with the different settings which can achieve different types of curls. For instance, if you put the heat on low and set it to 8/10 seconds, it will give you a looser beach wave – just my kind of curl. This curler is amazing and my new go to hair tool that I reach for.
Target sells it for $99.99, but if you have caught wind on my Instagram, you have a chance to win your very own Curl Secret 2.0! Head over there for all the details on how to enter. And while you’re at it, check out these other amazing Conair products – Infiniti Pro 2-in-1 Styler and the Infiniti Pro Hot Air Brush.
I hope you get to enjoy some quality time with your mother and loved ones and hope you have an awesome Mothers day everyone!
