Dear Retail Therapy, It's Been Too Long

I know, I'm sorry. My lack of time and actually, a tad bit of desire, to find deals lately just hasn't been my norm, therefore, my blog has gone unwritten for awhile. Well, low and behold, I found a deal and I'm excited to share it with you!

Recently, my husband and I vacationed in Las Vegas. Knowing that the hotels always have hairdryers nowadays I decided to not pack my own and go ahead and use whatever was provided. Now, I must say, this is a tad risky for me because I have tons of hair and usually the dryers that are provided are never 1875 watts and it can take forever to dry my hair. Yes, I'm exaggerating but, you get what I mean.

Surprisingly, the Golden Nugget doesn't even have the wall mounted ones! They actually provide you with a full fledged 1875 watt hairdryer. Well, I fell in love with it. Yes, an odd love but I was actually blown away (figuratively speaking) by how much power it had. I didn't understand why my 1875 watt dryer at home was so different knowing that the filter had recently been cleaned. So, me being me, I wrote down the name of it and planned on searching for it when we got home.

Sure enough, I found it. Sadly, I would have to purchase them by the case. I know I have a lot of hair but if I ever say that I need a case of hairdryers someone please, drive me straight to county mental health.

So, yesterday, as I set out to get some toiletries, I stopped at Big Lots and, well, there she was. The cutest pink and black, 1875 watt, hairdryer. As I stood there, admiring her color, I thought, "Do I need this? No. Do I want this just because she is cute? Yes. Is it cheap? Yes. Should you get it? Why, yes, you should for only $10!" So, she came home with me.

I immediately did the comparison test and sure enough my little pink beauty has more power than my old one. She's more compact and well, heck, she only cost 10 bucks!

Here she is! Cute as all get out! The Remington Adventure, Limited Edition! She has 3 heat settings, 2 speed settings, ionic conditioning (I have no idea what that means but I'm sure it's good for my hair) and a 2 year warranty.

Disclaimer: I do not really give my home appliances genders. Cars, yes. Hairdryers, no. :)
