I've been quite the lucky girl lately as far as mail is concerned. Particularly in the aspect of hair. And as such, I would like to introduce you to two of my newest goodies which I happen to be totally infatuated with. El numero uno: this lovely flower band from Jenny at Whimsical Headbands. Seriously, I'm not sure what I would do without something to keep my braided/bun(ned?) hair in check and looking cute with all of the humidity that's been hanging it's hat around here lately. That stuff really is a booger. But retro/hippie looking headbands are certainly the answer. Check, check, check it out.



Fun little sundress is from my friend Maddie's cute online boutique, Sparkle Designs. If you haven't checked her out, you are missing out on all sorts of really reasonably priced dresses and tops that are super fun for wearing.

In other amazing hairness news, I got the motherload of all products from Mr. Fed Ex Man. A HANA flat iron from Misikko. Let me tell ya, this thing is a beast. And I mean beast as in the best flat iron. I straightened my mom's hair as an example because she has about 5 bazillion x more than me and it was and extremely humid, rainy day (code mega 80s hair. Which would be good if it were about 25 years ago. Unfortunately it is no longer 25 years ago and humidity-infested, frizz hair is no longer cute.) That 'do lasted all day long. All. Day. Long. I live for perfect hair like that. Its not too skinny and not too fat, it is juuuust right (I was goldilocks in my past life), making it perfect for a speedy flattening job. And this flat iron gets super hot. But if you aren't into that, there are a TON of heat settings so that you can warm it to the perfect temperature for your hair. Which completely rescues you from having to double and triple swipe each piece (because double and triple swiping ain't hip folks). It looks super natural and silky smooth. Misikko also has a full line of Morrocan Oils for extra silkiness for your locks. Have you tried this stuff? For realz, it's really delicious-smelling and so works. I condition my hair with this wonder juice and love it to pieces! Finally, it comes with all sorts of cases for travel and storage and the absolute prettiest packageing eva! I am a sucker for pretty packaging and storage. Not that you would know it looking at my room. Just sayin. Anywho, this one is definitely worth a try. I'm a CHI girl, but honestly, I may have been converted! And I'm thinking I throw together a little tutorial for curling hair with a flat iron sometime soon. What 'cha think?

Wow! Great post. I love hair styling tools... I got this random Metropolis brand and it's been the best hair straightener I've ever had.

Your mom looks great! She's still got a great amount of volume too :)
