Leslie Loves...{1.18}

Hi Friends! Just two must-haves in today's edition of "Leslie Loves..." because I'm running a little short on time. They are pretty fabulous though, and I'm sure you'll find that you NEED both products. Soooo...let's get to it!



Remington Hot Rollers



Remington Hot Rollers, Hot Rollers,
Remington T|Studio Silk Ceramic
Heated Clip Setter

I've owned a lot of hot rollers in my life, and these are the very best I've found. There are 20 rollers in the set: 12 large {1¼"} and 8 medium {1"}. They heat up really fast, and the curls are set in just five minutes {for soft curls}. The longer you leave the rollers in your hair, the tighter the curl. In the left pic below {with Landon}, I left the rollers in longer {probably 15-20 minutes}. And in the right pic {with Kelli}, I probably left them in for 5-7 minutes. I usually just leave them in while I'm doing my makeup, and my curls last all day...and usually the next day too! I've had two friends use my set of rollers, and they both went out and bought their own set because they loved the resulting curls so much. I'm telling you, Remington hot rollers = pretty hair!








Conair Garment Steamer


I don't know how I survived the first 31 years of my life without a steamer. Oh wait, I guess now would probably be a good time to thank my mom for ironing every piece of clothing I owned while I lived at home {Thanks, Vic!}. Unfortunately, her love for ironing was not passed down to her daughter. I was forced to rely on the dry cleaner to press my wardrobe when I grew up moved away from home. So I guess that's my story of survival pre-steamer...anyway, just believe me that life is lots easier WITH a steamer {and a husband that is really good at using it!}.



I'd venture to say this is probably our most-used wedding gift. The Conair garment steamer is a middle-of-the-line steamer as far as cost goes...but I can't imagine why you'd buy one that is more expensive because the Conair garment steamer is pretty much perfect! I do have a few pointers to go along with this recommendation:
  • Use distilled water in the steamer to avoid having spots on your clothing if you accidentally get the steam a little too close for a little too long. If you do end up with a big wet blob, I promise it dries without a trace as long as you're using distilled water. 
  • Don't attempt to steam clothes while you're wearing them.  Not that I've tried this before, but I've heard that steam leaves burn marks on skin! Ouch!
  • The Conair garment steamer is available at Bed Bath & Beyond, but it's currently cheaper at Amazon, which is where all the links above will take you!

As always, I'd love to know what you think of my "loves"...have you tried any? Do you have any recommendations for me? I love to hear from you.

  7. Maybe I need to invest in a steamer. Thanks to my wonderful mother-in-law your brother now requires just about every single piece of his clothing to be ironed. Have I mentioned how much I HATE ironing?!?
