WELCOME BACK SUPREME DIVA! You are looking fabulous as usual! Wow! Congratulations on the book! I can't wait to read it even if I do not win the contest I will be purhcasing the book! Can't wait for the exciting! All the prizes are FABULOUS!!

KellyLex said...

Oh, I wish I could enter. You didn't mention it, but I can't enter because I don't live in the states.

DPrincess28 said...

Thanks Bluebonnet! You are so sweet! You are a true diva already :). XOXO

KellyLex: I never said anyone outside the states couldn't participate. As long as shipping fees outside the US aren't outrageous, I don't have a problem sending whoever wins the prizes...I'll have to look into that. That's the only reason I can see someone not wanting to allow folks outside the US to participate. I'll research shipping costs and get back to you.

Hi Princess. I know this doesn't have anything to do with the contest. But I wanted to know if you have tried the Maxiglide flat iron and if so did you like the results. Also, do you know how to clean and get rid of the burnt hair smell one gets when using the flat iron. I assume the smell is because the iron needs to be cleaned, right?

KellyLex said...

The shipping costs was my concern also. And maybe its going to be outrageous, you know with the recession and all.

DPrincess28 said...

Hey anonymous,

I've never used the maxiglide. For some reason, I don't think my hair would like those pins too much. I hope the burnt smell you're getting is from product buildup on the iron and not from you scorching your hair! I don't know how to get rid of it though. I guess cleaning the iron would be a start. I don't get buildup on my iron because I run a towel through it periodically as I flat iron to remove any oil/product. Hope this helps! XOXO
