Misikko's Dream Gift Package Giveaway!!!

A while back, a had done a review for one of Misikko's flat irons, and i absolutely loved it! You can find my review here.
Misikko sells practically everything from curling irons, flat irons, hair dryers, hair care products and more! When they told me about this giveaway they are hosting, i just had to participate!
There will be three winners *crosses fingers*

Check out the contest rules below:

Here is my entry:

1. Macadamia Nourishing Leave-In Cream - 10 oz

Macadamia Nourishing Leave-In Cream

The Macadamia Natural Oil line of haircare products combine two of the world's rarest, most valuable oils to provide the ultimate in hair rejuvenation and maintenance.

Infused with nourishing oils, this cream tames unruly locks, imparts a silky softness, protects and adds fabulous texture and shine.

I always had dry hair from that ONE time i bleached my hair, and now i regret it so bad. And recently, it had come to be a bit frizzy. Hate!!! I've heard so many good things from this product, i really want to try it!

2. CHI Silk Infusion (2 oz)
CHI Silk Infusion™ - Reconstructing Complex is specially formulated for thermal styling and hair repair. CHI Silk Infusion contains no alcohol, so it won't dry your hair out as a leave in treatment - and it'll leave your hair with the head-turning, lustrous shine of pure silk.

Authentic CHI Guarantee

Farouk CHI Silk Infusion Features:

  • Leave in, alcohol free reconstructing treatment
  • Enriched with pure natural silk, wheat and soy proteins
  • For soft manageable hair with incredible shine and no build up
  • Protects the hair against thermal styling and environment

I never really put hot tools in my hair because i've never had any good styling products and heat protectant that would keep my hair from frying. I've tried this once at my friends house and it was really good! However i always have a hard time finding it in my local drug stores.

3. CHI Turbo Digital Ceramic Spring Curling Iron 1.5" (JUMBO)
The wait is over! Farouk CHI rolls out the next generation of CHI curling irons - gone digital. With a sleek design, completely digital temperature control and the same ceramic quality you expect from a CHI curling iron, this delivers the curls of the future - now! Create sensual waves and luscious curls - and keep hair conditioned, soft and shiny due to negative ions produced by ceramic far infrared heat.

I love CHI products!!! And i've never had a curling iron larger than 1". I've always been envious of some youtube girls with the big big curls and i really want to try achieving that look! CHI products have never failed me before!

4. CHI Auto Digital Ceramic Waver

The CHI Auto Digital Ceramic Waver lets you crimp, wave and curl with a three barrel design that gives you precise control over smooth, sensual waves. With digital temperature management, auto-shutoff and a comfortable spring grip, the CHI Waver gives you a world of styling possibilities - in the salon or at home!Authentic CHI Guarantee

  • Flash quick heats up to a range from 176ºF to 392ºF
  • Auto Shut-off feature for ultimate safety
  • Professional Swivel Cord

I love the wave look! Sometimes i would braid mohair to sleep just to get the wave look in the morning, but it always seems to fall back straight after an hour or so even with hair spray :( I really want to try this waver, it looks so much easier than curling your hair!

5. CHI Keratin Mist - 12 Oz
CHI Keratin Mist™ - is specifically developed to work in conjunction with the CHI line. CHI keratin mist with Catonic Hydration Interlink and proteins is an advance leave in spray to provide hair with strength, protection and softness while leaving hair silky and shiny with incredible manageability.

Like the silk infusion, this is another hair product i always wanted to try. It sounds so promising with words like "softness", "leaving hair shiny and silky". *happy sigh*

6. Grizzly Feather Hair Extensions - Light Blue

Grizzly Feather Hair Extensions - Light Blue

Grizzly extensions are individual feathers with a larger width than standard classic feather extensions. You can use an accent individually or group it with a classic set.

Seems i quite slow with the feather hair extensions, but don't these look so pretty!??!

7. Classic Feather Hair Extensions - Magenta

San Francisco trip

Hey everyone, I'm back from my trip to San Francisco! Well it wasn't really a vacation, my boyfriend was going for a conference in Santa Clara, and I just happened to tag along.

We went two days early just so we can explore parts of the city. The only part of San Francisco I got to see was the downtown portion, which I absolutely adore by the way! Unfortunately I didn't take many pictures, I had my camera but was too lazy to snap pictures, instead I used my iPad to take shots, which often was too heavy to carry around haha.

I have to say I've tried the best churros when I was in San Fran!!! They were huge! I wish I had gotten more!

Our hotel was in Santa Clara, and we literally lived in the middle of nowhere, but it was close to his conference centre at least. The hotel was nice, it was just a hassle getting to places. The closet mall to us was the great mall, and it was about a 40 min light rail ride. If we ever wanted to eat or do something, it had to be there since our hotel was not walking distance to anything! I think I did the most walking on this trip, just walking to the light rail took 15 minutes and we walked multiple times everyday!

Coming back was the worst. Our flight got delayed by 7 hours so we had to sleep in the airport overnight, never had that happen to me before. It was a good thing I didn't have work the next day or else I'd be dead tired, seeing that I can never sleep in planes.

I'd defiantly go back just for vacation purposes, I really want to visit everywhere, I think I can see myself living there one day *happy sigh*

Buttttt I have to get back to reality now...which is this thing called work.

Le sigh.

Had a outdoor pool at the hotel which i never got to use :(
