White Computer/Desk Chair

Hello all!

Recently, I moved into a new apartment and I’ve been purchasingΒ many different types of furniture. I wanted to share one of the items that I thought many people might like to know about. It is the BestOffice PU Leather Mid-Back Office Desk Task Chair in the color white.

I’m still in college, so I needed a little desk and chair in my room. I wanted an all white theme, and it’s actually really hard to find a nice, white chair, for a decent price. I went to different places like TJ Maxx and IKEA and they had some, but some were over $50, while most were over a $100. I was going to just give up and get a cheap black one from Walmart, but I decided to look online and thank god I did. I didn’t think I was going to find anything around my price range, (under $50), but I did. I purchased the chair from Amazon, from the seller Cavalier Wholesale. It’s a nice size, and it goes up to 19 inches. It is perfect for a desk area. The back and the seat are both white, the stand/support is silver, and the wheels are black. It is a simple and an easy set-up as well. I included pictures of the building process, so that you guys could see how simple it is. It took me about 30 minutes to set up.

Below is everything it comes with. It has easy to follow directions in the plastic with the seating pad. You don’t need any extra tools, besides what they provide.

The instructionsΒ want you to set up the wheels first. No tools are necessary for that part, all you do is push them in.

Next is the seat itself and attaching the part that will connect that to the back part. This was probably the hardest part for me to do, and that’s not saying much because it wasn’t too bad. The large silver part on the left of the photograph below made things difficult because it needs a more lifted surface to screw it in. Also, the screws are hard to get all aligned because you can’t sit the seat part down flat. But after that hurdle, everything is easy-peezy.

Next, you just screw the back part of the chair to the silver attachment. After that, the last step is to stick the entire chair part onto the rod that the wheels are attached to and voila, you’re done!

step 8

Right now, the chair is going for $31.00, but I bought it for $26.00. Maybe they were having a sale or something, because it wasn’t a holiday when I purchased it. $31.00 still is an amazing price. It’s perfect for dorms, apartments, small office spaces, etc. The seating part doesn’t have that much cushion, but it doesn’t bother me at all. But, if you have pain or are sensitive when sitting for long periods of time, maybe this isn’t the chair for you. Also, the material is alright, but if you have cats or dogs that like to scratch or chew furniture, this is not for you either.

Overall, I hope you guys enjoyed this little review and please let me know if you liked it or have any comments or questions.

Hot Tools Pink Wand Curls

Hello everyone! Sorry for not posting in awhile, but school is finally over! So without a further ado, let’s get to the fun stuff!

I’ve been using this curling wand for almost two years and I absolutely love it! It is the Hot Tools Tapered Curling Iron. The smallest part is 3/4 of an inch and it goes up to 1 1/4″. I keep it on 350 degrees and have the best curls.

I start off with applying Tresemme Heat Tamer spray, especially towards my ends. I am quite a lazy person, so I don’t section my hair. My hair is all virtually the same length, so I just grab random sections and curl them. It took me a while to figure out how to get these curls, but the secret is holding the strand there for only 6 to 10 seconds. When you hold the strand there for too long, it gets too tight and doesn’t loosen up as nicely.

With this curling iron it only takes me about ten to fifteen minutes to do my hair, which is awesome! I also really like that the iron has a little stand, so that the hot part doesn’t touch any surfaces. It also has a light that allows you to know if it’s turned on or off. Also, the cord is 8 feet long and swivels, which is really helpful!

I bought mine from Ulta for about $60.00. It is pricey but the quality is worth it. It also comes with a protective glove, (but I don’t use it). It is made out of titanium, which helps the heat spread faster, so you don’t have to wait a long time for it to heat up.

Overall, I highly recommend this curling wand! It’s pricey, but sometimes Ulta or other places have sales so definitely check it out. Click here to see it on the Ulta website. I hope you guys enjoyed and feel free to ask any questions! And I will be posting more!
