2 Products I bought at Target

Wow going into Target today was quiet, going in the morning is the best I can say no one is there:) I love all the clothes they have so many sales going on for summer clothes I so have to go back. I like how they have more selection in the women's section.

I sadly had to say no to other products this time and I went in only for 2 products as I am proud of my self, haha. I recently purchased a black hair color from Ultra but I didn't like that color it said it lasts long but it didn't last that long for we, it was almost a week before it went dull, that was Feria in black I think maybe I forgot to but the other product I usually get to keep my color longer hopefully because I always liked this brand I hope they didn't change there stuff again.


I love these cute ones, they always keep my hair in place and not falling out as some scrunchies do.


Ok I am going back to my color and see what happens, fingers crossed, one day I'll take a trip to a professional and do it the right way:)






Here is what I bought at Ultra a week ago, I love them but disappointing in the hair color

National Lollipop Day

How fun today I found out that it is National Lollipop Day July 20,  I love lollipop's ever since I was a kid. I'm not sure if you like them as well but they do come in many flavors and I have to say that mine is always cherry:)  specially the ones that are the big swirly ones that you get at fairs or theme parks now they are the best.





The history of the first lollipops in America is unclear.  Some speculate that they were invented during the American Civil War (1861-1865) while others believe lollipops have been around since the early 1800′s.  Most often, it is George Smith who gets the credit for inventing the modern style lollipop in 1908 and he trademarked the lollipop name in 1931.  His idea of putting candy on a stick was to make it easier to eat.  The name came from a popular racing horse at the time, Lolly Pops.


I think it is fun to celebrate this day with your kids or friends, just buy a few different lollipops and share them with people you encounter daily, how fun is that:)
