I think I will own the entire Joe Fresh nail polish collection pretty soon. Every time I shop at the Super Store I buy 3 colours. It is impossible for me to walk past the display without stopping and looking at all the colours. For the American's who have been curious about this Canadian brand you will soon be able to shop at a Joe Fresh store in NYC. It was announced yesterday that the brand has plans to expand into the United States with their first store opening at 5th Ave. and 43rd St.
I don't normally wear such neutral nail colours but I decided to try out something new and I actually really like this because it can be worn with just about anything and there are some situations that blue polish just isn't appropriate for.
What do you think?

I was approached by Misikko.com to review the Hana Professional Pink Flat Iron. A flat iron is one product that I use pretty much everyday so I was excited to try out a new iron. Misikko.com sells Ceramic Flat Irons, Bio Iconic Flat Irons, Curling Irons, Blow Dryers and lots of hair products such as Moroccan Oil Hair Treatment.
When the box arrived I was expecting the standard cardboard and plastic that usually comes with online orders. Above is what arrived at my door. I was so impressed with how it was packaged. I have ordered flat irons online before and I have never had them arrive like this. It was quite obvious that a lot of thought and care was taken when putting the package together
Misikko.com always sends your box with a little pouch filled with nail files and hand sanitizer. Some kind of beauty product is also included in all boxes and I was given lip liner.
The flat iron came with a silicone pad which is AMAZING. I have never had one of these before and they are great because I don't have to worry so much about where I am putting the iron while I use it. I once left an iron on too long and burned a mark into the floor of one of my Korean apartments (Oops). It wouldn't have happened if I had this silicone pad back then. The iron also came with a pink traveling pouch, a black drawstring bag and a black pad.
I also really loved that the iron came in this black tin. None of the other irons I have bought in the past have come in a tin like this and I thought it was great for long term storage.
I have used the iron everyday since I received it. It does an awesome job of straightening and can also be used to curl your hair. I'm not an expert on curling with a flat iron but now that I have an iron that can curl I plan to learn how to do it.

Whenever I show my face on the blog I'm always wearing contacts because I like to think I look better without my glasses. When I am in front of my computer I always wearing glasses because my eyes can't take staring at the computer screen with contacts. I just got new glasses and I thought I would share them with you. I had the same pair for 5 years and decided to change up my look a little bit and decided on a plastic frame this time around. The frame is from a company called ProDesign Denmark.
