The Clip Free Curling Wand creates a world of styling options, from glamorous and sleek red carpet curls to voluminous beachy waves. The new clip free system is the next level in styling technology. Skip the creases, lines and breakage caused by traditional curling irons.    The clip free system is intuitive and easy to use, providing professional, salon level results in a fraction of the time.

If you’re looking for some sweet Amazon deals, make sure to follow Nickels-n-Dimes Facebook page and Nickels-n-Dimes Twitter account.

It’s Wednesday and you know what that mean…Want to Win Wednesday! :)

Each Wednesday on Want to Win Wednesday, you will have the opportunity to find new blogs, win cool prizes in bloggy giveaways, share your giveaways, or do all 3.

If you’ve never entered blog giveaways, now is the time to start. I’ve won all kinds of great prizes from blog giveaways…from small items like brownie mix to large items like a ladder.

This is also a great opportunity for bloggers to share their sites with others that may not have found their site otherwise. I hope you take part in this each week in one form or another (or BOTH)!

Please keep all giveaways family friendly. Please link directly to your giveaway post and not your homepage please. This is requested so that we do not have to search for your posts.

Hope your week has been great so far and that it gets even better as it goes along!
