This weeks GIVEAWAY is sponsored by:

Hello Gorgeous has created some of the industry’s most durable, affordable, and beautiful products by using human hair, instead of synthetic or animals hair. The Hello Gorgeous Clip-In Human Hair Extensions feel and look natural.

Unlike synthetic hair, the human hair can be straightened with a flat iron,curled with heat, or chemically treated to perm or dye . You treat the extensions just like you would your real hair.

SO cool!!!

Hello Gorgeous is here to make you feel like a CELEBRITY every day or for those special occasions like weddings or anniversary.  You will look BEAUTIFUL!

Shannon from Hello Gorgeous made me the Hello Gorgeous 20″ Salon Special Set made with  premium Remy human hair, (retail $179.99).  Shannon from Hello Gorgeous made this line super affordable — so everyone could afford to have gorgeous hair!  Each beautiful extension set is meticulously made by hand  in the sequence of orders placed and takes a minimum of 25 business days ( a minimum of 5 weeks ) to make and production is started the next business day after payment is cleared. Each set comes with clips attached to each extension piece and they attach and detach very easily. You can put them in yourself in just a couple of minutes!!

I just love them!!

Hello Gorgeous is giving TATERTOTS and JELLO fans a ANY extension from their site. They will make you ANY extension YOU desire!!!  {$150 – $400+ value!!!}

Happy Saturday!!
