Yesterday, NailPolishCanada.com reached out to me and told me about a Babyliss Miracurl giveaway they’re having that’s open to both Canadians and US residents.
The e-mail was written in a humourous way – I was laughing a lot! (Kudos to Tiffany and the writers!)
I’ll admit that the hair curler looks intimidating to me (*bawk bawk bawk*), but for those who are brave to try it and want to win one, you’re the reason why I’m sharing this giveaway! 🙂
P.S. Here’s a little known fact about me. My hair is actually naturally curly, but I flat iron it daily. (My dad’s mom had curly strawberry blond hair, so I must’ve gotten it from her.)
For years, I let my curls be…well, curly. (Think it was near the end of high school when I freed the ‘beast’!)
When I was a baby, my mom told me that strangers would comment (with disgust), telling her, “You shouldn’t perm a baby’s hair!” Haha, but they didn’t know my curls were natural. When she told them, they assumed she was lying. That, in itself, is hilarious, because my mom is one of the most honest, straight-shooting people I know. I guess people didn’t believe her because both my parents have straight hair.
It was actually just a few years ago when I went on a straightening kick. It’s fun to switch things up every now and then!
(Maybe in a future Smorgasbord Sundays post, I’ll post some photos, if I can dig them up. Wow, I haven’t written one of those in a while!)
Here’s the official Babyliss Miracurl giveaway press release NailPolishCanada sent me:
Every holiday season millions experience a sense of sadness at the flatness in their life. In an effort to cope some find themselves straining important relationships.
“I know my husband loves me, but another day where I’m running late trying to curl my hair in a mad dash is just a fight waiting to happen” – Katie B
Could people go without curled hair? They could, but experts agree such a lack of regard and care is sure to result in a coal filled stocking.
“After the economic downturn Santa has had limited resources and he too has to make cuts, it’s not only naughty or nice anymore, but how you present yourself.” noted Mrs. Claus
Today Nail Polish Canada has announced their plans to take a stand and solve this important issue with the Babyliss Miracurl. In just seconds the Miracurl literally sucks your hair right in, curls it, then beeps letting you know it’s done.
In order to raise awareness Nail Polish Canada is giving away 3 Babyliss Miracurls, to whoever can convince us they are the most “in need” of one.
“This will impact people’s lives. Together we can make a Christmas Miracurl”
– Nikki Smith, VP Glitter *This is our favorite pun ever and we’ve been using it around the office for weeks

Edit: It’s always great when large companies say thank you to the little guy! 🙂
