They like it kept to a minimum. Or yes. None.April 22, 2021 at 8:01 am #1044557LisforLeslieGuest
Having watched alllll the movies on Hallmark, it has to be very specific to the story – e.g. Champagne toast. People come home and to relax they cook dinner and do internet searches for possible suspects. Sometimes a man will have a beer to show that he’s a dude who responsibly drinks a single beer while he’s following leads and being a dude. I would loooove if they just showed Sassy coming home, dropping her important work bag on the kitchen island and taking off her bra and then eating a box of cheez its on the couch (while doing internet searches for the killer).
I get so disappointed when I see familiar actors and then it turns out to be a Yay! It’s Christmas! or “Impossible premise sets up two single people who don’t want to fall in love but can’t help but fall in love!” movies. Like I said – if there isn’t a dead person, I’m out.April 22, 2021 at 6:25 pm #1045199BittergaymarkGuest
Interesting. Our wine / alcohol usage in the scenes in question was quite incidental. Like white wine with dinner —- and I had to go with iced tea for the other takes.
Truth: I enjoyed working on the murder flicks far more than the Christmas ones. Mainly, because, well, the Christmas ones require so much more work for the art department.
It’s simply more fun to kill people off than endlessly trim Christmas trees. Two years ago I did four X-mas movies back to back. Starting in mid January, it was literally Christmas for over three months. Lemme tell you, it was TOO MUCH CHRISTMAS!!!
When we wrapped everything, I was quite confused that it was nearly April. 😉April 24, 2021 at 1:15 pm #1047805
Dyson Airwrap first impressions: very strong! There’s definitely a learning curve, but I love how my first attempt with the big barrel turned out. It looks similar to how my hair used to look when I would blow it dry with a paddle brush, curl it with a curling iron, set it with velcro rollers, and then brush through to loosen it… but with a lot less time/effort. Though that method, for me, had a LOT of staying power even without product. It’s been a week so I went to bed with wet hair last night, which I almost never do, so decided my first attempt would be totally product-free, air dried hair just to see what how it holds throughout the day. Figure I’ll just experiment with different attachments/products over the next month while I decide if I’m going to keep it cause that price tag is not for the faint of heart.April 24, 2021 at 1:47 pm #1047837
I messed around with it first on dry hair too, but it doesn’t hold. It wants your hair damp, not dry or wet.
I do my makeup while my hair ceases to be soaking wet, then I rough dry the roots for a minute or two. Then I section and go in with the bigger barrels. The skinnier ones are just too much for me because my hair really holds a curl, but maybe I can figure out what to do with them. I do this on hot for 10 seconds and then the cool shot button for 10, then turn off and slide it out. Don’t touch the curl at all. When you’re done with your whole head, leave it alone for 10-20 minutes before running your fingers or a brush through.
If you do beach waves, spray each one with some spray as you let it down! Could be hair spray or I use Kristen Ess soft wave spray.April 24, 2021 at 1:55 pm #1047847
Oh, forgot to mention I used a spray bottle to dampen it first. Wasn’t sure how wet I needed to get it but the top section of hair looks nice. The bottom section is where I was trying to figure things out and it has a wave but doesn’t look as nice as the top.April 24, 2021 at 2:03 pm #1047858
Oh yeah, that should work. Sometimes I spray a part with water if I want to touch it up later.
Also, if you keep it, and your hair is past your shoulders, consider getting the long barrels. Mine didn’t come with them, not sure if yours did, but they’re great.April 25, 2021 at 10:56 am #1049142
I didn’t know they had longer barrels. My hair is a little past my shoulders and I did find myself pushing my hair up after it had wrapped around the barrel to keep it in the stream of air. My curls did fall a bit yesterday, but I was surprised to still have so curl and wave to it by the end of the day… no product and I spent a couple hours on the roof in the wind.
I used the round brush attachment this morning on the lowest airflow setting and it styled my hair so much faster than I was expecting. 🤯April 25, 2021 at 11:19 am #1049172
Yup, you don’t strictly need the long barrels, but they are nice. Especially if I’m wrapping the hair around it from the root manually, I can spread it out more and it dries faster / more evenly.April 30, 2021 at 9:53 am #1055229
Continuing the review nobody asked for: The two smoothing brush attachments seem like they’ll be useless to me. My hair is too coarse for the soft brush. The firm one makes my hair look like I roughly flat ironed it… the ends don’t look finished at all. Maybe with more care I can get it looking nicer with that attachment. Still need to try the smaller barrel curls and beach waves.April 30, 2021 at 9:59 am #1055236
I asked for it. The brushes don’t do much for me either, except I do find the one with the pink tips to be useful for smoothing out my roots before doing beach waves. Like a pre-styling tool. And detangling.April 30, 2021 at 10:06 am #1055245
I was really hoping it’d do what the Revlon brush does but faster. Unfortunately not! Most of the tutorials I’ve seen online, yeah, the women use it as a pre-styling tool.
