Build A Supporting Relay For Life

Many of you know that my friends and I have started another year of fundraising for Relay For Life.  Relay For Life is such an important cause and I am proud to help in any way I can.  This year we have been very fortunate to have some wonderful sponsors who are aiding us in our fundraising efforts.  Build A is one of our awesome sponsors.  Build A specializes in creating customized signs, banners, decals, and much more.  They print your unique designs on high quality materials and guarantee customer satisfaction. Their easy to use design tool allows customers to manipulate pre-made designs, create their own designs, and even upload their own images and/or photographs. 

Build A first allowed us to create a site banner for the actual Relay night. The ladies on the team and I brainstormed many different ideas, and the above banner is our final product.  I didn't have any rope to hang it yet, so I tried to capture as much of the sign as I could.  I think that it turned out great. And my order arrived two days after placing it. If you are wondering why our team designed our banner this way, let me fill you in.  This year's Relay theme is Beach Fun.  All the participating teams have to decorate their site to include this theme.  This year, my mom friends and I are also being sponsored by a makeup company so that is where the Blushing came from. 
Build A went a step further in sponsoring out team by allowing us to create bumper magnets to sell for donations.  We will have these bumper magnets for sale at our Relay Auction, Yard Sale, and the actual relay night.  If we sell all the magnets at the minimum donation price, Build A will have helped our team raise $150 for this great cause. We would all love to extend a HUGE thank you to Build A for their valuable support of Relay For Life.  

If you have an important event or party coming up, don't forget to check out Build A for your banner and sign needs.  If you are a business owner looking to advertise on your car, they have Vehicle and Car Wraps too. 

If you would like to support our Relay Team with any small donation, please email me at and I will give you our Relay link to donate directly to the charity.

Disclosure:  We received a custom vinyl banner and 30 bumper magnets in exchange for this post and a side bar link.  I was under no obligation to give a positive review.  All opinions are my own.

Flat Iron Experts Review

I would just like to start my review with…WOW! Who knew that a professional flat iron would make such a difference for my hair? For years I’ve been using a cheap metal flat iron with only so-so results. Every time I did my hair, it was a gamble. Would it end up straight or frizzy? With my new KQC X-Heat Ceramic Styling Iron from Flat Iron Experts, I no longer have to take that gamble. Each and every time I’ve use it, my hair has looked straight and smooth (not even any fly-aways)!

I love that the KQC X-Heat Ceramic Styling Iron has adjustable heat and an on/off switch. Depending on your hair type, you can adjust the heat from 140 degrees to 410 degrees. And it heats up in seconds! I have found setting the dial right in the center works best for my hair. For my daughter’s thin hair, I set is on the lowest setting and was still able to curl it. I wonder how great our hair would look if we had one of Flat Iron Expert's great professional hairdryers??? 

Besides flat irons and hair dryers,Flat Iron Experts has many other great products. They have various brands of Curling Irons, Hot Rollers, Wax Warmers, and professional combs and brushes.  This brush would make a perfect addition to my new flat iron!

When you get the chance, I would definitely encourage you to stop by and explore their great website. They guarantee the lowest prices and provide free shipping on any order over $75.  However, please be aware that the prices shown are in Canadian Dollars.  However, if paying with US dollars, your payment will automatically be converted.  

Disclosure:  I was sent a free Flat Iron in exchange for my honest review.  I was under no obligation to provide a positive review.  All opinions are my own.
