Madewell in Memphis, TN had it’s grand opening party last night from 5:00 to 8:00pm.  This is Tennessee’s first Madewell, so I was very excited.  I love Madewell and shop there often, but not as often as I would like since we didn’t have a local store where I could try on their items.  My blogging friend Colleen works there, so make sure you look for you if you go by.  I knew that AJ would be in town this week and was planning on going by the grand opening also, so we met up and shopped together.  I had a great time – drinks, shopping and friends.  AJ is so adorable, and the first picture is of me and her.  She is sweet and funny, and I think I could have stayed there and talked and shopped with her all night (and I kind of did.)  = )  I also saw Kim there who I visit often at Banana Republic and Augusta who is a writer for Memphis Magazine.  Madewell was giving away the cutest polka dot clutches with every purchase, so I scored that also.  I had a great time meeting new people and shopping.  If you’re in the Memphis area, you should definitely check at Madewell at Saddlecreek.

If you’re wondering what I ended up buying last night at the Madewell grand opening, I have included the pictures and links below.  The first is the bistro mini.  It is a stretchy skater style skirt, but more straightlined and longer so you could actually wear it to work.  The picture below truly does not do it justice.  It is the most gorgeous neon orange color I’ve ever seen.  Do yourself a favor and pick one up now.  There were only 2 in the entire store when I got there last night, and I got the only one in my size.  Winning.  The striped tee is very soft and comfortable, and I love that it isn’t boatneck so it doesn’t show my bra straps.  There are so many possibilities of what I could style it with.  And the last item is the hepcat sunglasses.  I had been looking for a great pair of tortoise sunglasses for a while, and at only $55, these won’t break the bank.  Make sure you use your student i.d. to save 15%.  As soon as I got home last night, I had a Madewell coupon in my mailbox.  Can you believe it?  I’m all shopped out right now, so if you want a promo code for 25% off your next purchase of $100 or more, email me and I’ll send you the coupon.  It is good for one time use only, so first come first served.



Jose Eber Trio Clipless Curling Iron.  $170.
Now it’s time for today’s giveaway. Jose Eber sent me this 3 in 1 curling iron this past week, and I’ve got to say I was a little nervous about it being “clipless.”  If you don’t know, that means that there is no clamp that holds your hair in place on the curling iron.  There is just the wand. I chose the trio because it comes with 3 attachments in 19mm, 25mm and a tapered one. They also have other sizes you can check out here. I used the 25mm one yesterday morning becaue I didn’t want my curls to be too small.  All of the pictures you see above are of me last night after I had used the clipless curling iron about 12 hours earlier that morning.  Follow me on Instagram to see more pictures of my curls yesterday. If you’re intersted in me doing a hair tutorial with the clipless curling iron, just let me know.  You just press and hold down the power button, and about 60 seconds later, it was at 200 degrees and ready to go. In addition to the curling iron and the 3 attachments, it also comes with a heat resistant glove that you can wear on either hand. I placed it on my left hand and curled with my right. I was honestly amazed at the results. I loved the look of the curls without the clamp. The curls felt fuller and much more natural looking since they didn’t have that flat, squashed look that you get from using a clip on a curling iron. Not only did I love the look of the curling iron, it was much easier to use than I thought. It also took less time to get used to it than I thought. I had never used a clipless curling iron before, so it surprised me how quickly I was able to do all my hair. It took about 20 minutes, and I only held each piece for about 20-30 seconds total. Previously when I had curled my hair, it usually took about 45 minutes to an hour to completely curl it all with enough curl so that it would stay in all day long. If you’re spending too much time with your curling iron now or have even given up because it doesn’t work that well, it takes too long or the curl doesn’t hold well, I would hands down recommend this curling iron. I have never tried one that I have liked better, and I’ve used a lot of different curling irons over the years. The only recommendation I would make is to try to find a heat proof glove to use with it. Though this one comes with a glove, it is heat resistant, so you can’t just wrap your hand around the curling iron like I felt the need to do at first. I haven’t bought another glove yet though, and I still had no problems at all with the glove it came with, but it could only make it ever better in my opinion.  Jose Eber has 2 promotions going on right now. To celebrate Earth Day, if you send in your old tool, they will send you a coupon for $75 off their site. It has to be postmarked by April 30 and is limited to one per person. Jose Eber will make sure the tool is then recycled properly! Also,you can save 15% off any purchase with code Memphis15.
Jose Eber has partnered with me today to give one lucky reader the exact same curling iron trio that I have!  It is valued at $170, and I am so sure you will just love it!   The giveaway will end this Sunday, April 28 at 7:00pm CST.  To enter the giveaway, all you need to do is:
1.  Like my new page on Facebook.
2.  Leave me a comment here on my blog letting me know you’re entering and what you are looking forward to most about this curling iron.
Today I’m linking up with Lindsey, Alison and Shanna.

  1. I have naturally curly hair, but if I'm getting dolled up, I like to add definition to my curls. That can be rough when you're using a normaly curling iron. I think this one would be awesome because it wouldn't get tangled as often!

  2. Wow! This is the one that I really need to win! LOL! My hair is naturally wavy, and I am usually either straightening it or curling it to the point of no return! LOL! This curling iron seems like it could make my waves more like soft curls (instead of the Shirley Temple ones I get with my current curling iron!)

    I liked your new FB page as well!

  3. YAY! Of course I Like your page on Facebook! And what am I looking forward to most? Well I've been using a Conair curling IRON for the past… 3 years or so and I think/know I need to upgrade to a wand because it's WAY better on your ends. I just don't have the funds to and would LOVE to win this! caraalynn@gmail.com

  4. I have straight hair, and that's how I normally wear it. If I do decide to curl it, like you said, it usually takes a good 45 min! I've always been curious about one of these, but never purchased one…I would LOVE to give it a shot on my hair in hopes that it would allow me the opportunity to get more "cutesy" every once in a while! 🙂

    Oh, and I Liked your new Facebook page!! 🙂

  5. I've been growing my hair out and debating which curling iron to buy (my former perfect curls left after I had a baby? WHY!?). This is it! I would love, love, love to win it. And, it comes with accessories (the stylish glove :)! Win all around!

  6. I liked your Facebook page and would LOVE to win this. I'm a college student so anything that allows me to get ready quicker would be amazing. I have super thick long hair so I am rarely able to curly it because it takes forever. I would love to actually be able to curl it for a change. 🙂

  7. Im entering! Like your FB page! I actually wouldnt use it for myself as i have naturally curly hair but it would be great to use on my daughter. Her hair doesnt hold curl very long with a regular iron so i would love to have something that would hold it all day!

  8. Liked! And so excited to enter this giveaway. I saw those gorgeous curls of yours on Instagram 🙂 My cheapo Revlon curling iron has just about had it, so my hair would definitely appreciate this fancy schmancy curling iron!

  9. I would loveee the coupon if nobody else wants it!! I plan on going sometime soon. I've never been before nor have I ever worn any of their clothes from ordering online. Looks like I'm missing out! I'm loving all the items you scored. Super jealous you were able to go. I had plans already last night, so I was sad to miss out. I really want to see what the clutch looks like…on second thought, maybe I shouldn't see it because I'm sure I would be jealous. haha

  10. Just liked the new FB page and hoping to get my hands on the trio you are giving away! I have 2 little ones and don't get to curl my hair as often as I would like – hopefully with the cutdown on curl time I will get to do it more often!

  11. How fun with the Madewell opening! I'll have to go check it out sometime. Probably next time I'm in Germantown. 😉

    I've liked your FB page. I recently chopped my hair off, and I'd love to see what the short do would look like with curls.

  12. Would love to win this because I have SUPER straight hair, and like you, used to spend about an hour curling my hair so that it actually held the curl rather than turn into a simple "J" at the ends only 20 minutes later. I end up never curling my hair because I hate spending that much time on hair only for it to fall a short time after- even with the amount of hairspray I have to use to attempt to hold the curl, my hair ends up looking dull and crunchy, which ends up causing major breakage from both the intense heat and the amount of time I have to hold the iron on my resistant hair, which also makes it smell burnt for a few days, regardless of how many times I wash it. FUN. LOL. Would love to give this puppy a try! Thank you, Laura and Jose Iber for this awesome opportunity!

  13. Liked your facebook page! I think I would most like the different sized barrels so I wasn't having to pack 2 curling irons everywhere I go. I vary between the 1 inch and the 3/4 inch depending on which curls I'm going for that day 🙂

  14. I love Madewell and I love the skirt you got! Your hair looks amazing too 🙂 I like your page on Facebook and ok entering the giveaway! I would love to win this because it seems really easy to use and so much faster than my normal curling iron (which, like you, has a clip and takes my hair 45 minutes to an hour to curl)!

  15. Yayyyy for this giveaway, I have been excited about it since i saw your gorgeous curls yesterday. I like to curl my hair but it takes wayyyy tooo long so if I won, i would have more time to work on my future career in fashion blogging 🙂

  16. I'm already "like" you and I have always been curios about the mon clamp irons! It takes me about 45 minutes to curl all of my hair now, so I would love to save the time, but still have the curled hair!!!

  17. Entering! My hair is naturally a bit wavy, but I'd love a lot of OOMPH to it by creating pretty and dramatic curls! I really like the Silk Tap Shorts you have on as well as the spike renegade bracelet which I have too but in the silver version! 🙂

  18. I'm still so excited that we got to meet in person! I had such a blast with you!! Next time I'm in town, we are doing drinks/dinner.

    And I agree, that picture does not do that skirt justice. It looked amazing in person!


  19. I'm I stalk you everywhere and love your style! I loved your curls yesterday and long hair girls know it takes a long time to curl their manes. Time savers are always welcome in my house. So if it saves time and make my curls stay all day I'm in!!

  20. I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to try the clipless curling iron! I swear I can not use a normal curling iron for the life of me! Always get the crimps from the clamp! Hopefully I'm the lucky winner! I'm a fan of your FB page now too! Yay!

  21. OMG I will pee my pants if I win this!!!! My curling iron took a crap the other day so I bought a new one and I hate it 🙁 I can't return it now and I really could use some confidence in my curls! This looks AMAZING!!!!!! Pick me pick me PLEASE!! 🙂 haha

  22. Look at you, lady….with a Facebook page and shiz!! You know I liked it!! 🙂
    I am interested in seeing the results on my super thin hair. Plus I'm just straight up intrigued by how it would feel to not have a clip!!

  23. I liked your fb page and I'm totally entering this giveaway. I loved the pic of your hair when you tried this out for the first time. I haven't tried a curling wand yet so it would be neat to try.

  24. I would love to see what a new curling iron could do for my new haircut. I'm always looking for ways to change it up and I think it would be a great way to do it!! Plus all my curling irons are so old… I need a new fab one!!

  25. Wow, the first Madewell?? Must've been in heaven honey! I've been growing out my locks and looking for a new curler so I'm DEF in to try this puppy out! thanks for the tip!

    Also, in honor of my blog’s 3 year anniversary, I’m giving away your choice of a FREE PAIR of shoes!!! Would love it if you stopped by to enter! Hope to see you soon!

    Peace. Love. LOL!

  26. I liked your new Facebook page!! (username: Rebecca Jill May) Thanks so much for this great giveaway! I've been trying to get my hands on one of these for so long but dont have the cash to splurge on it right now! I'm excited for the opportunity to have a wand that comes with THREE DIFFERENT SIZES!!! (whaaaatt?! YEAH!) Thanks, gal!! xoxo

  27. I liked your Facebook page. I would love to have an excuse to stop, slow, down and actually do my hair. I just had a baby and my hair could really use some TLC! BTW I love love love your blog. It makes me miss Memphis so much but your posts make me feel like I never left. Thanks! Brittany @Everydaythoughtsbybrittany.blogspot.com

  28. I like your fb page and follow you on instagram! I'm entering the contest for this clipless iron! I've been wanting to try one out for a while now.

    I'm currently growing my hair out – it's just past my shoulders now. This would be a great way to add some curls! I also have 3 daughters (yes, 3) so this would get a LOT of use at my house!!

  29. I've never had a curling iron that had different sized barrels. I'd love to be able to make different sized beachy wavy for my long hair!

    By the way, I have Liked your Facebook page (Diana Devlin)

    Have a wonderful weekend!

  30. I liked your page! And I'd love to win this because I hear great things about it (and clipless in general) and I would love different sizes to choose from. I love curling my hair over any style, but don't always feel up to the 45 minutes it takes standing there to do it. I hadn't actually known this reduces time so that just makes me want it even more. 🙂

  31. Hi! Thank you for the chance to win this amazing giveaway!! Im following on facebook: Shadow Kohler.
    Id love to win this. My hair is waist length, super curly, frizzy and looks horrible. I hate it. Id love to win this because i can tame my curls and be proud to wear my hair down! 🙂 Thank you!

  32. This looks fabulous! My hair dresser and I recently decided that the only way for my hair to hold curl is if I used a curling wand because for some reason if the clamp of a curling iron is used it falls limp and flat. I'm so excited to finally know how to style my hair so that I can feel pretty on a day to day basis, but I don't have the tools to do so. I've been using a very old, about to break conair curling iron and just not using the clamp, so I'd love to have a brand new wand so that my style would look a lot cleaner. Also the interchangeable sizes would be perfect so I can change up the size of my curls!

  33. I liked your new page!!!! I'm entering & looking forward to seeing if this iron will help my hair to actually hold the curl!!! My hair is pretty straight & I think I need a good quality iron!!!

  34. Hi Laura, I have liked your Fb and am entering here for the Jose Eber curling wand. I too have alot of long hair. I curl it and 20 min later it's straight. I've seen alot of great reviews on this wand. Can't wait to try it out. Have a blessed Sunday <3

  35. Liked on Facebook!! I would LOVE this wand!! I need to spice up my life a bit, I'm thinking this wand will help haha! Would love to be able to do something with this limp, thin hair! I think a currying wand would do the trick! Would LOVE to find out!!! 🙂

  36. The clipless would do wonders for my hair and cut down on my getting beautified time. my thick mane needs some beach wave perfection for summer! Thanks for the opportunity!!

  37. I bought the Jose Eber clipless curling wand for my sisters birthday a few years ago and have regretted ever since why I didn't buy one for myself :). I cant begin to describe how amazing this wand is, its magical.

    Liked your fb.

  38. I liked your FB page and I would love to win this curling iron! I have super thick hair and I've seen the clampless curling irons and wondered if they would work on my hair (and actually hold the curl)! I think it would be fun to try some new styles this summer.
