Sally Beauty has a new hair curling machine that's so different from regular curling irons you won't believe it.
The Curl Genius Professional Curl Machine from BeLissPro has a Titanium curl chamber for smooth curling and shiny hair. It has three timer settings: eight seconds for loose curls, 10 seconds for medium or 12 seconds for tight curls. And, there are two heat settings: 390F or 430F.
The Curl Genius is hand-held and easy to use. Depending on your hair type and length, start with a section of hair about one inch wide. Open the Curl Genius and insert the hair close to your scalp. Close the handle and your hair is pulled into the curling chamber. Then, wait for the beeping signal and release. That's it. Quick and easy.
The Curl Genius is beginning to trickle into Sally Beauty stores, a few at a time, so you may want to ask to have one reserved for you. Or, order online at
. You'll get free shipping on orders over $50, so the Curl Genius will qualify.
Be sure to use your Sally Beauty Club Card and look for 15 percent off coupons from Sally Beauty, or get one from the free SnipSnap coupon app for smartphones.
Shop Kick app
While I love the Shop Kick app on my phone, there have been some bugs over the last few months. I'd lose points because, just before entering a store where I'd pick up 35 to 55 points, a box would appear on the app saying, "Oops! Something's up with the server." Since my phone couldn't connect with the server, and many walk-in points are timed, I lost some easy points.
There have been a couple of updates to the Shop Kick app which are supposed to help with this problem, so check for them. I hope they work.
I love spicy cocktail sauce and usually make my own, but lately, since I'm short on time and energy, I've bought bottles at the store.
Recently, I bought a bottle of Food Lion's own brand of cocktail sauce and found it to be the nippiest of any bottled brand I've tried. What a pleasant surprise.
