An Autumn Stroll in My Neighborhood (picture heavy)

Hey girls and guys!

Fall/Autumn and Winter are my absolute favorite seasons and I've been out and about a lot lately enjoying the weather and (ooo aaaaah) the changing leaves. I live in downtown Salem, MA so we get a lot of tourist action around these times and have something called "Haunted Happenings." Saturday I went up the street to the Salem Commons to walk around and then went further downtown around where the Pirate and Wax Museums are and, low and behold, there was a ferris wheel and other assorted carnival rides!

However, it was a little too crowded for my tastes so I didn't take too many pictures. I did get some apple crisp though, mmmm. Here are some of the photos I snapped while I was out :-)  I hope you guys are all enjoying this time of year as well!

My babe hunched against the cold breeze!

Pretty corny, I know, but I love the changing leaves!

The "Salem Witch Village" pumping smoke everywhere

The "carnival" that popped up overnight in an abandoned lot downtown

This lady was just standing in the middle of downtown and when people tipped her she'd blow them a kiss

This guy was super creepy, wouldn't talk!

Infinity by Conair straightener = AWESOME!

The link to this awesome project is here:

My friend bought this straightener because we had a surprise night together and while we were getting ready my straightener broke. We both got it at Target (targeyyy). I bought mine after curling her hair and seeing her THREE days later with her hair STILL curly, still soft and bouncy, and still looking great if not BETTER than when I first curled her hair. 

I cannot even tell you guys how LONG I have been trying and searching for products to curl my hair. It's a classic case of the grass is always greener because all my friends claim they'd kill to have my wavy, thick, long hair but I would and have done ANYTHING to get purposeful, flirty curls. Well, I've never gotten a perm but I've tried all kinds of other chemicals from mouses to pomades to sleeping in curlers. Nothing has ever worked!

I was skeptical that this straightener would work on my hair simply because it is so small and weighs like nothing. I was like "this is not powerful enough to curl my hair" or if it did curl my hair it wouldn't even last through the night. IT WORKED!!

It is day 4 and my hair is still lovely. The curl is not as pronounced but now they have that sexy toussled beach wave thing going on. I don't have pictures for you but I will definitely take pictures next time to show you guys real evidence that this totally works! Girls, if you have unmanageable THICK hair that's like a horse's tail... this will work for you!! The price tag at target said 27.95 but at the register (Oct. 9) it was $17! I was so excited.

I bought this straightener with my own money for those worrying about FTC guidelines and I'd buy it again!! There's also a green one that I saw. I know it's been forever since I posted but I had to share this.

Hope some of you will get this and be as happy with it as me.
