Hana Flat Iron - Review

Hello Everyone,

It is my pleasure to introduce You to an amazing product I had the chance to try out.
This is Hana Flat Iron

Please see the link for more information on this and other products:
Other links:

I have been contacted by John who is running a family business that specializes in Flat Irons and Hair Dryers. He offered to send me a sample of one of their best products, which is a Flat Iron “Hana”. I said it was a pleasure because it has in fact been the best straightener/flat iron I have used until now. A few months back, maybe a year ago, I bought a pricy straightener and I really liked it, it worked well and it always made my hair as straight as I wanted it to. I had no major complaints. HOWEVER, when I used Hana Flat Iron I was shocked at how much better it actually was than the old straightener I have. It, in a way, opened my eyes to all the little things about the old straightener I didn't like, but never realized because I figured it couldn't be that bad, I thought it was the best they got, they were minor things, yet after using the new Hana Flat Iron I realized they were not that minor and they actually made a big difference in how well it worked and how comfortable it was to use.
For instant: with my old straightener at first I thought it was pretty smooth when I was using it on my hair, only after using the Hana Flat Iron did I realize that it wasn't as smooth as Hana! It just glides though your hair and doesn't pull a single piece, it left me in shock after I was done, and it honestly took me 5 minutes to go from this to this.


Not one hair has left my head and I loved it! I believe this is Hana’s best quality.

Hana Flat Iron is very light and comfortable to use. It is made out of 100% China Ceramic material and it looks stunning! The plates are like mirrors, which makes it very esthetically pleasing and the entire straightener looks very classy.

The Plates are also a very good width which allows for faster effects. There is a temperature adjustment therefore you are able to use it no matter what kind of hair you have, you can even use it if you have very thin, fine hair, put it on low and straighten away! For thick hair put it on high and your locks will be tamed :)
The cable is a perfect length, in the morning when I get ready for work I walk around a lot in my bedroom to get everything ready to leave, and often multitask by doing my hair at the same time, the length of the cord allows for easy moving around, I really like that as well.
I believe it comes with a case for it as well, I say "I believe" because I have received it from the sampler and I didn't personally purchase it on line, the straightener came with all kinds of items and products therefore I do not know what exactly comes with it when one purchases it on line or buys it in store.

The sampler asked for my review as the product is new and as we all know products needs to be tested before people trust it, I would say go ahead and purchase it if you need a good straightener.
It is no longer a chore to do my hair!

I hope this has given you a lot of information about the straightener as well as I hope the images are helpful for you as well.

Please do not hesitate to ask any questions! I have now used it for a while therefore I am pretty familiar with the product and I believe I will be able to answer any questions regarding it.

Cheers! xoxo

Party Look and a New Kitty

Hi Everyone!

This weekend has been very busy for me, but i am not complaining as i am now a happy owner of the cutest little treasure, our little kitty “B”. He (i'm assuming its a he because 95% of red cats are male) is such a good kitty and so playful. He's very smart and energetic, he loves to play and he looooooves to scratch! I look like i went though a gigantic rose bush! Haha :) here is a picture of my little treasure.

Last week i promised you a party look and one that you could wear to a house party, there was a few looks i had in mind but i figured i'd go with a simple one since over-doing it even for the party doesn't always turn out that great! ;)

so here is what i came up with, simple and to the point, it has a party aspect to it as it is sparkly and flirtatious.

Here is how you can achieve this look:

1. Prime your eye with MAC Bare Study
Apply MAC Vanilla Eyeshadow all over the lid to the brow
2. Apply UD Bourbon Eyeliner such as it shows in the picture, since the UD eyeliner is soft and eyeshadow sticks to it well i feel these are the best to use for this look, mind you you can choose any colour eyeliner and create endless looks!
3. Then on top of the eyeliner apply any sparkly brown eyeshadow of your choice and smudge it outside of the eyeliner line with a small brush, it looks cleaner as well as stays on for much longer (match the colour of the eyeliner with the eyeshadow colour)
4. Apply glitter eyeliner of your choice to add extra “disco ball” effect to the make up
You can extend the eyeliner or make it thinner or thicker, it is all up to you and how visible you want to make the make up.
5. Apply Black Mascara or mascara with shimmer such as Cover Girl

This is a very simple look it actually takes only couple of minutes to do as well as if you loose the shimmer and sparkle you can wear this make up as an everyday look to work or hang out with friends.

I hope you enjoyed my party look this week.

Next week i will show you how to create a BOLD Party look! One you can wear to a club or if you like bold looks for house parties this one will be perfect for you!

Have a GREAT week!

Gothic Violet Make Up

Hi Everyone!

Last week i was not able to post anything make up related so i decided to use that occasion to introduce you to a new member of my house :) see my previous post to see pictures of my new pet :)

To make this up to you i decided to show you not one but TWO looks today, both pretty funky :)

First is a Gothic look i came up with on a spot, i designed it on a piece of paper i tried to make it as funky as possible and something that really stood out. it's not a usual look for me but i wanted to try it and i think it looks pretty good! lol
What do you think?

here is how to achieve this look

Step by Step:

1. Apply MAC Bare Study as Base all over the lid up until the brow
2. Apply NYX Milk Jumbo EyePencil on top of the MAC Base
3. On top of the MIlk apply MAC's Vanilla and just on the moving part of the lid itself apply Gesso
4. In the crease apply MAC's Print, just a thin line
5. Follow the same steps to prepare the bottom eyelid.
6. Now you can use your creativity to apply eyeliner any way you wish and any way it will flatter your eye shape. you can use MAC's Blacktrack Fluidline and different types of eyeliner brushes to achieve any look you want!


✭ ✭ ✭

My second look is a Purple Star look, it is so simple you can achieve it within 5 minutes!

Here is how to do it...

Step by Step

1. Apply MAC Bare Study Paint Pot to the entire lid up until the brow.
2. Apply Purple Ben Nye Lumiere Creme as a base on the entire lid and half way to the brows, it is stickily enough to keep sparkles on.
3. Apply Ben Nye Sparklers in MD - Galactic Violet all over the area where you applied purple base
4. Apply MAC Eyeshadow in Shroom just above the purple colour base
5. Apply MAC Eyeshadow in Vanilla as a highlight
6. in the inner lower corner of the eye as well as on the outer corner where two eye lids meet, apply a bit of white base, Milk by NYX is a great one. You can also apply it to the bottom waterline.
7. On top of white base in the inner corner and the outer corner, apply MAC Eyeshadow in Gesso and then on top add a bit of White Frost
8. With MAC Blacktrack Fluidline apply a line to the bottom lid so the inner and outer end of it point down, at the bottom lid apply a thin line and allow the outer end to slightly point up
9. Apply Mascara to top and bottom lashes, i used Lise Watier Feline

i hope you enjoyed both of the make up looks today,
next week i will introduce you to a house party look :) Since it is a May 24 weekend which is a long weekend, my boyfriend and i are organizing a house party it will be a good opportunity for that ;)

Kitty "B"

Hello :)

Since my internet doesn't work today I can't post a make up post because the phone doest support the size of the images I want to input so I decided to take this opportunity and let you know what's going on in my life right now :)

I'm getting a little kitty !!! :D :D :D

I'm geting it on June 4th and I'm so excited about it, in fact both me and my botfriend are very happy because of this sweet little creature :)

We are going to name it after Disneys Beauty and the Beast so its name is going to be "B" and that's short to Beast :) lol

We figured it works in so many ways and its just perfect haha

I akso have a picture I can show you that I had in my phone, my friend from work who has them took a picture of the cat I want :) its the ginger kitty with a tiny black spot on its ear :) haha I thought it was so cute!


Awwww... I just can't wait!!! :) we already bought stuff for it like litter box, toys, bed, collar and such so we are just waiting for its arrival as it has to be at least 6 weeks to leave its mom and we want to give it at least 8 weeks :)

Anyway I better go now and figure out a way to get make up pictures on my phone so can post a make up blog :P

Teal Cloud

Hi Everyone,

I hope you all had a wonderful week, mine was pretty busy with work but fortunately i still found some time to see my friends as well as prepare for my blog entry this week. And so here it is! :)

i'd love to show you a beautiful Teal look i came up with over the weekend, i am absolutely in love with a teal colour and this look was actually inspired by a nail polish from the new MAC Collection "Quite Cute" it's called Mischievous and its a beautiful light teal colour, i just had to have it :P

here is what it looks like, my camera was being finicky and didn't properly show the colour so i had to grab a picture from on line.

And here is the make up:

this is how you can achieve this look:

(All the products listed are just guidelines of products to use to give you the effect from the presented make up ideas)

1. Prime your eye with MAC Groundwork Paint pot almost all the way up to the brow
2. Apply a thin layer NYX Milk Jumbo EyeLiner to an outlined area of your upper and bottom eyelid, do not blend in
3. To get the teal colour as is showing on the picture I mixed Ben Nye Turquoise and Iced Gold, and applied it ONLY to the lid where the Milk was applied in step 2.
4. Apply MAC Lucky Green only a little bit to the outer corner for a green reflection
5. To the bottom outer lid apply MAC Blue Calm and just on the VERY outer MAC Deep Truth
6. Just above the the teal on the top lid apply MAC Coquette and on top of Coquette a thin layer of MAC Shroom. Try to not blend the teal and Coquette together, to separate them even more you might want to use a thin brush and apply a thin line of the Coquette just above the teal
7. Use MACs Vanilla as a highlight and to blend out Coquette
8. Outline top and bottom eyelash line with MACs Blacktrack Fluid Line, wing it! ;)
9. A Mascara i used Feline Lise Watier

i fee this make up has a beautiful effect and can be even worn as an everyday look as the bright colours are dimmed with neutrals.

...................................................................... ✭

And now, as promised last week i will "demonstrate" how i achieved the Silver Rock look.

Remember this?

Products and Techniques I used:

(All the products listed are just guidelines of products to use to give you the effect from the presented make up ideas)

1. Prime eye with MAC Bare Study Paint Pot (any primer will do)
2. Prime just the lid part of the eye with NYX Black Jumbo Eyeliner
3. On the area with the Black primer apply yaby pp052 platinum (medium silver with metallic finish)
4. Starting from the outer corner of the eye in the direction of the brow (half way though) apply MACs Coquette somewhat heavily then pulled the shadow in the direction of the centre of the lid, with more shadow come all the way to the inner corner of the eye
5. Clean up the outer corner for a clean straight line with a light eyeshadow, i used MACs Vanilla, going up to the brow as well as you may extend with a small angled eyeliner brush it to make a pointy effect for more on the edge look or smooth it out for a more everyday look
6. With MACs Print darken the outer corner of the eye
7. With MACs Vanilla smooth out the edge of the eyeshadow underneath the brow and use it as highlight, apply a small amount in the inner corner as well
8. With a narrow brush apply MACs Print to the bottom lid just on the outer corner.
9. Apply a small amount of black eyeliner to the top lash line all the way to the inner corner, i used MAC Blacktrack, as well as apply it to the waterline
10. Apply a thick coat of Mascara, i used Maybelline the Colossal Volum' Express

As you can see there is not too many steps and they are fairly easy. This could be an everyday look or if you like the edgy style :) or an evening or date look.

I hope you will try it out as it is a very flattering make up shape for most eye shapes.

Let me know how it turned out!!! :)

I hope you all have a WONDERFUL week, see you next week!! <3

Hi Everyone,

Honestly, writing these two words above was one of the strangest things i did recently... it is so strange as i have not written anything in here for so long, and the reason for that is in the post below.

Hi Everyone :) Update on my life

This is not a post for make up.. it has not much to do with it in fact.. this is an update from my life. I am letting you know this in case you are not interested in my personal life. So keep reading if you are interested as to why i was away for so long...
Oh my... it has been so long... I can't even believe i am doing this right now. This is going to be a typical but not a typical for MY blog, post. this post will contain no make up pictures just an update on my life. I feel i owe you guys so many apologies and i owe you so many posts with make up. I have such amazing fans and you mean so much to me, you always made me feel great even when the days were worse, you have always brought my spirits up when i was sad and when i felt lonely. I miss you and i am very sorry i was away for so long... i swear it was never my intention. I did not do it by choice... in fact i had no choice and my life went to complete s*** for a while.
I have gone through a lo since my last post in May... in fact during that time i was already in a tough situation but i was still able to do what i love because even though everything was taken away from me i still had my make up and i still had a camera.. after that last post in May... there was no more hope, my camera was taken from me and the only thing left was make up... and that doesn't do the job if you want to post on the blog, does it...
well i feel like i should give you explanation to all this and this is why i am writing this.
my ex-boyfriend (ex-common in-law) and i split... went our separate ways (which i am now very happy about) and since i was in Canada all alone and i have invested everything in him and life with him, i was left with nothing when we split. he has demanded all the things that were ours to be his, and that included the camera.. :( since then i needed to find a place to live and find a job that would pay me because i didn't have a job at the time when i was with him because i was attending full time college, Make up school and then i was in full time co-op (unpaid) for my HR career. I feel i was cheated because he decided we should not be together right after we have decided i would quit my job that paid me.. so thats why i was not able to purchase camera and pay for internet.
Currently, I have a full time job that pays (i have worked very hard at my co-op position and they have given me a job) i have a place to live and it has internet (thats why i am able to write this:) and... i am in a relationship with the most wonderful man on the Earth...
he is truly the love of my life, has been here for me in the worst time of my life, first a friend whom i'd give everything for and now my dear boyfriend whom i'd give even more than everything for. He has been a solid support for me for the last few months and i don't know where i would be right now, who i would be right now if it was not for him and his love.
I still don't have a camera and this is why i am not able to create a post with make up but i am slowly but surely saving money for it and i know i will be able to post some Make-Up Posts for you guys....

anyway ... if you want to contact me personally please e-mail me at otherwise feel free to leave a comment below.. i'd love to hear from you again.. like i said I HAVE MISSED YOU SOOOOOO MUCH!!!! <3 <3 <3
