My current obsession - Sam Edelman Wedges

When I first saw these pair of sky high wedges on InstaGram, I seriously fell in love...hard! So I went to the local Nordstrom to buy the shoes, but unfortunately they were out of stock. I was crushed! The sales assistant said the shoes were a special edition - part of the Holiday 2011 collection. Whatever. I didn't really care. All I wanted was the shoes. Fortunately, he was quite helpful. He checked Nordstrom.com for me and it showed that the store still had some...at least a few pairs left. So he took my order bla bla bla.. he said within 5 days I would get my shoes. Low and behold, on the fifth day, I got a shocking email from Nordstrom. My order was cancelled! The email stated that the shoes were no longer available. They even removed the shoes from the website. Even SamEdelman.com did not have them anymore. I was so upset. I really wanted the shoes. So I went to Twitter and tweeted Nordstrom, asking: "why this thing always happen? Why my order was cancelled, again? This wasn't the first time!". Well, I got a reply from a CS asking if I could provide him with more info through a Direct Message. So I did. He said he would check the availability for me. Half an hour later, I got a phone call. I was so excited when the CS (His name is Michael by the way!) said there's one Nordstrom somewhere in Texas still had one pair left and the sales assistant from there would be calling me soon. So I waited...and waited...but no phone call. =/ I ended up bugging the CS on Twitter again asking him to call the Texas store for me. He did, twice! He promised that someone would be calling me soon. I guess the store was really busy. Finally, at the end of the evening, I got a phone call from Texas! Yay! The sales person took my credit card info and processed my order. :) I was soooo happy! I give Nordstrom Customer Service (Twitter especially) an A ++++++. Great customer service! Anyway, here are the shoes!! They arrived within 3 days. :) And yes, I am seriously in love with them. They are so cute, and sexy! ;)

So.... what are your current favorite shoes? Do share!

Hana Flat Iron Review

Hello ladies,

I was sent a flat iron by Misikko for review. The packaging came so cute and I almost didn't wanna take it out from the box ;).  Anyway, this flat iron is by Hana and you can check out the product here: Hana Professional Flat Iron.

Hana Professional Flat Iron

I just wanna keep this review quite simple. All I can say is that I love, love, love it!. Although it's only 1", Hana flat iron does wonder to my hair.

Hair Before:

Towel dried, unruly hair. Well, I think most of you know I have curly/wavy hair. I normally flat iron my hair, and if I got tired of flat ironing my hair, I would treat my hair with either Japanese Rebonding or a Brazilian Blow out.

Hair After:

Silky smooth, straight hair!

I was using a new eyeliner, and that would be in my next blog post;)

My Hana Flat Iron Review:

Q: How long did it take to heat up the iron?:

I let it stand for 2 minutes before I began using it.

Q: Does it come with a dial-button adjustable heat?:

Yes, it does. Adjustable Heat 140-450° F.  I used 400°F for my hair type.

Q: How long did it take to flat iron my hair?

15 minutes because my hair is super long, thick and curly/wavy.

Q: How did it feel when I was done with the whole process?

My hair was super smooth, straight and it stayed straight for 2 days.

Q: So how would I rate this flat iron?
5 stars! I am very picky when it comes to hair styling tool, and I personally think this is one of the best.

Misikko also was nice enough to send me a sample of Hana Shine Shield Thermal Protectant serum that also can be used as a leave in conditioner. More info can be found HERE. I love the serum because it's not greasy and it makes my hair smooth and shiny. I highly recommend it. It's quite pricey though, but a little goes a long way. Protecting your hair from heat damage is super important and if you don't have any heat tamer product, I suggest you get one. There are many brands that are available at Target or any beauty supple.

I guess that's all for now. Thank you for reading this post!
