    I've had this Andis hairdryer for 6 years and it's great. The only bummer is that it's quite a bit heavier than the Babyliss hair dryers I've used in the past.

    I watched the Tile video on their website and I'm now hooked. Thanks for the reminder that we'd need to wipe the device. Completely spaced that. And thanks to all for the great suggestions!

    I bought a Smartwool tank top that I absolutely loved. However, it only looked good tucked in so I bit the bullet and got it altered. An added expense but it added utility.
