SkinCareRX Giveaway! - CLOSED

Congratulations Ashley, chose you as the winner of the SkinCareRx Giveaway!


Good morning ladies! The wonderful team over at SkinCareRX has offered to give away a $100 gift card to one lucky reader--and get's open to all readers! I'm over the moon about this, as the company offers some of my favorite brands--Jan Marini (dermatologist grade skincare), Jane Iredale (the only line that has me even considering minerals), and La Roche-Posay Anthelios--amazing sunscreens for the season!

La Roche-Posay is a line to be seen. The products are a bit more difficult to obtain in the States, but are quite common throughout other areas of the world. As the weather warms up, it's important to remind ourselves to stay protected from the harmful rays of the sun. Don't get me wrong--I found out this past week, that I could do with a little more Vitamin D in my life (this is something that you can easily obtain from time spent in the sun) however, I don't want to end up looking like a lobster in the meantime! Weightless formulas like the Ultra-Light Fluid for Face, are perfect for this very reason.

This isn't something that needs lip service--it deserves for you to check out the website on your own! I can't imagine a better way to do so, than with a Gift Card for $100, so let's get to the good stuff!

Misikko Hana Professional Flat Iron Giveaway - NOW CLOSED

Congratulations to NO6NU - chose you as the lucky winner!

Hi lovelies--I'm back! I have something that I've been dying to share with you, and it's not just because there's an opportunity to snag one of your own in a giveaway.

Misikko, a site dedicated to hair tools, kindly sent me a ceramic Hana Professional flat iron to play around with. To be honest, I'm a little slack when it comes to flat ironing my hair. Normal days tend to go like this: wash, add oil, leave in braid until dry. One of the reasons I've been avoiding the full throttle hair ironing routine, is because the gum-like grips on my standby iron were pulling out more hair than was worth the straight effect. Regardless, there have a been a few events where I've needed my hair to be a bit more *ahem* tame, so I brought the Hana along for the ride. The pink carrying case is perfect for this, as I don't have to worry about it being crushed in my luggage amongst a sea of clothing and shoes.

The fact that it comes with a heat-protectant mat is also a major bonus. The 1" plates quickly heat up to 450 degrees if need be (this is a definite need for my hair). My hair was shiny and complete in less than ten minutes--and that's while curling it (which often takes longer) instead of just straightening. I'll tell you what was most impressive--outside of the iron. Misikko's customer service. When the package arrived, it was full of extra goodies, tied with a bow, and complete with a sweet flower. I've been on the hunt for a new hairdryer, and now I've directed my search to their website, as I was so impressed with the way they treat their customers.

Oh, and in case you need some photographic evidence...

don't mind the craziness...all better with a little ironing :)

So, are you ready to have it for yourself? Here are the ways you can win it:

*You must be a follower of Suka & Spice
*Leave a comment stating that you would like to own this iron
*Follow Misikko on Twitter
*Blog about the giveaway (one extra entry)
*Join Misikko Newsletter (3 extra entries)
*Leave a comment letting me know you've done any (or all) of the above
*Remember to leave an email address in your comment (or you can email me)
*Enter before June 16th, midnight

I apologize, as this giveaway is only open to US and Canadian residents--the voltage and plug are not suitable otherwise. Best of Luck!
