BumpIts

Have you ever seen these? I have been having a love affair with them since watching the infomercial late one rainy night last December. I knew immediately upon seeing these that I had to have one so I could look like Miss America herself. And if you order through the infomercial, you get the Hollywood Bumpit for FREE - for a limited time only, of course. For anyone who knows me, they know I have a special place in my heart for kiosks and infomercials. It's nothing short of a miracle that I haven't bought 4 of these puppies by now, but I have practiced self-control. Aside from the fact that I called ULTA, Walgreen's, the As-Seen-On-TV store, and Sally Beauty Supply to make sure they didn't sell these. I really wanted to see it in person before making the commitment.

I had just about decided that perhaps we weren't meant to be when a little something I like to call fate stepped in. It was a day like any other really. Patrick and I were doing some shopping at Wal-Mart and were headed to the check-out line. I like to do the self check-out for some reason (maybe control issues?) But much to Patrick's delight, the line was backed up to the greeting cards. So off we go to find a line, and suddenly I spotted something that made me stop dead in my tracks. There on the end cap sat a display for Bumpits. Not only were they there in the flesh, but it was their price that made my heart flutter. They sell for $29.95 (plus S&H of course) on the infomercial, but oh no, not here. Not today. There it was for the everyday low price of...wait for it...$9.98!!! I was tempted to buy 7 of them at a steal like that.

Granted, I didn't get the Hollywood BumpIt for free as I would've had I ordered it on TV. But I'm just a small town girl, and really not ready for all the fame and fortune that wearing such a glamorous piece would bring. So for now, I'll just stick with my regular Bumpit.

Side note: It remains to be seen if I'll actually ever wear this monstrosity. I'm sure that will be a blog post itself.
