If you're into hair styling tools, you've probably heard of the Dyson Airwrap. But if not, it's a hair dryer that curls, waves, smooths and drys with air rather than heat. It comes with up to 6 attachments, and retails at the whopping price point of $549.99.

I don't personally own the Airwrap, but my sister used it on me for my friend's birthday party last weekend. As an avid user of the $40 Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer, I was skeptical about trying the Airwrap out.

My experience:

The first thing I noticed was the heat. My usual blow dryer gets pretty hot, so the Airwrap's lower temperature was a drastic change. Not to mention, it made my hair instantly smooth, with no sign of any frizz.

As my personal hair stylist for the night, my sister used the firm smoothing brush to dry my hair, and then used the 1.2 and 1.6 inch barrels to curl it. Since my friend's party wasn't until the next day, I reluctantly slept on the curls. However, when I woke up the next day, I looked like I was fresh out of the salon.

The pictures above were taken the day after styling, after having slept on my curls. I must say I was impressed with how they held up. However, the final test was whether they could stand a night outside in the humidity.

I won't keep you waiting.. I am happy to announce that I spent the whole night celebrating my friend's birthday, and my curls didn't budge.

If you don't believe me, here's a shot of the birthday girl and I enjoying some cake.

Although the Dyson Airwrap is far from affordable, my justification is that it will save you money on salon visits in the long run. If you are super into hair styling tools and feel like treating yourself, I would say that the Dyson Airwrap is worth it.

I personally am not ready to give up my Revlon blow dryer just yet, but I will be mooching off my sister for her Airwrap as long as she'll let me. These curls don't lie!

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
