Meeting Hana Elite



I was completely stoked when John, the owner of Misikko Marketing, contacted me and subsequently asked if I would be interested in writing a product review for his website Misikko.com that specializes in hair straighteners and professional hair dryers. Given the sometimes disobedient condition my lengthy locks are prone to create, naturally, I complied. So, when the UPS guy dropped the package door-side, I scampered to find the camera, opened the box with jovial rebellion, and began photographing my amazing loot.

Not only does Misikko maintain a highly regarded status for luxury products like the Chi flat iron and FHI flat iron, but it's evident they take immense pride in customer satisfaction. My new Hana Elite arrived beautifully packaged (with a wealth of unexpected extras), but the most uplifting of his generosity was the moment I saw a $25 personal check and SASE for me to send to the Haiti Earthquake Relief Effort. Thank you John, your sincere altruism is largely esteemed.

Yesterday's climax was hell-bent in every conceivable way, but even as I framed the scope of persuasive language, I'm grateful for silver-linings and unfathomably small miracles. During the course of this picture-taking calamity, I (in retrospect) remorsefully set my clutch on top of the truck and then proceeded to drive off only to remember this ill-constructed act an hour later.

But the long and short of it is that when I finally got home, a welcomed voice on the answering machine said they had my belongings safe and sound... minus the cash that had been removed during its prior abduction. So thank you Jessica for finding it, driving 60 miles out of your way so that I could retrieve it, and for saving me unwarranted amounts of angst. And in a sigh of reprieve and raw contentment, I've come …

Watercolor Wonderland x Nasty Gal

Still in shock...  Apart a from my instagram sneak peeks, it's been torture keeping this secret, but now I can finally share the amazing little fact that yours truly was featured on the one and only Nasty Gal (falls out of chair)!! When I was first contacted by NG and asked to design a few exclusive illustrations/paintings, I'm pretty sure my response was some highly intelligent verbiage falling along the lines of, "Wha-um-can't breathe. OMG am I dreaming?" But okay, here's a totally cliché moment... dreams come true!
