Review: HANA Professional Pink Flat Iron

It's like knew my natural curls are back with a vengance and driving me bonkers. 

Fashion Blog Diary 140

They reached out a few weeks ago and offered to gift me with their top rated flatiron: the HANA Professional Pink Flat Iron. A $205 value, now on sale for $119. Such a lucky ducky I am.

Gave the pretty in pink flatiron a whirl before my NYC trip. Needed to know my hair would withstand the "wintery mix" forecast. Was amazed at how easy the iron was to grip and glide through my hair. Love how you can vary the heat settings to minimize damage. Something about the placement of the plates also makes it easy to curl your ends and avoid the tell-tale flatironed-fright-wig-straight-ends look.  And did I mention how much I love that the flatiron, cord and case are all pink like a vagina!

Best of all: the results were flawless. Straight, shiny, swingy perfection.

Fashion Blog Diary 142 

For extra amazing results, my pretties, I recommend using John Frida's 3 Day Straight spray before you flat iron. The combination of the two made my hair stick straight even in the NYC sleet (YES, SLEET!)


Make sure to check out if you need a hair iron, Tourmaline hair dryer, or any curling irons. And stay tuned, I'm trying to get them to give me a second give away to one lucky reader.

kiss and good hair to you all!

Fashion Diary: A Weak Week of Outfits

So it took three months but it's finally happened. I've gotten horribly behind on blogging. I'm in NYC right now for work---having a blast but working like a mad woman.

But I miss me some blogging. So here's a recap. Of a few outfits. For your fashion hump day pleasure. Kiss.

Monday, March 14

LA Fashion Week Show. Billed as a masquerade. Too ghetto for words.

Fashion Blog Diary 094

Best part about it was that Bridget from the Girls Next Door got tricked and showed up too. That's her fourth from the left in the front row.

Fashion Blog Diary 080

Can't believe I dragged tiny Miss JordyPants and her sequin to it. Mortified. Hope she'll forgive and mostly FORGET.

Fashion Blog Diary 095

Oh and did I mention, I managed to fall in my 5 inch YSLs? Ugh. I'm so old.

Fashion Blog Diary 097

At least I loved my dress.

Fashion Blog Diary 100

Lanvin helps take the loser sting out of a busted night...and ankle.

Tuesday, March 15

Flats today. Wasn't taking any chances

Fashion Blog Diary 107

Debuted a new Forever 21 find. $14 skirt. Reminds me of Tibi.

Fashion Blog Diary 105

Toned it down with work seperates. Next time it will look cuter. I promise.

Fashion Blog Diary 109

Not as cute as my mom eating little pies at Simplethings. But close.

Fashion Blog Diary 108

After dinner, we peeped in the window at Alexis Bittar and SAW THIS! Scare me. Don't plan on going in that store anytime soon.

Fashion Blog Diary 111

Even though the jewelry c'est moi!

Fashion Blog Diary 113

I want

Fashion Blog Diary 114

One of the rings in particular reminded me of a ring I own

Fashion Blog Diary 115

So on Wednesday, March 16, I built my outfit around it.

Fashion Blog Diary 119

The dress, jacket and earrings are all Forever 21

Fashion Blog Diary 117

Look tres fance with the Fendi wedges and LV neverfull

Fashion Blog Diary 116

But my fave part of the outfit is the pear lining of the jacket. Delish.

Fashion Blog Diary 122

Almost as the delish cupcakes I polished off at work on Thursday, March 17
for St. Patrick's Day

Fashion Blog Diary 124

Wore the same dress from Sunday. Except paired it with green.

Fashion Blog Diary 130

Love me some green and navy

Fashion Blog Diary 131

Make that blingy green with navy

Fashion Blog Diary 133

Blingy Marc Jacobs green specifically

Fashion Blog Diary 136

Worst part of the outft: my natural curls

Fashion Blog Diary 137

They're baaaaaaaaaaaaaack. Be afraid.

Fashion Blog Diary 063

And ended it with my favorite mommy and cheese plate.

Fashion Blog Diary 068

Donned my fave new dress. From H&M. $40

Fashion Blog Diary 069

The little fluttery appliques make me BANANAS happy. They move and flit and feel like feathers. Remind me of Valentino, Chanel, Burberry and Marchessa.
Fashion Blog Diary 070

That's why I got it in cream too.

The Inspiration








p.s. This is what my stairway to heaven looks like. Chanel heaven.

How to Wear Denim on Denim

Fashion Blog Diary 061

The Outfit
H&M denim shirt
J Brand jeans

The Accessories
Chloe wedges
Louis Vuitton tote
Forever 21 bangle and ring
Karen Walker sunglasses

The Grade

The Commentary

Relaxing day soaking up Mr. Diabolina. Did some flower mart-ing, hogging, spa-ing, shopping, drinking, laughing, tanning and a few more -ings.

Fashion Blog Diary 060

Threw this truck driver meets cowboy with a dash of Alexa Chung look together. Finally sacked up and tried my hand at denim on denim.

Fashion Blog Diary 058

Ashley Greene's to blame. Was inspired by her simple, casual look. Realized mixing denims can look chic and pulled together. It's really about the shapes and pairing the head to toe denim with luxe accessories. 


Now if only I could get my hair as sleek as hers, I'd be twilight-rrific.
