Can You Straighten Your Hair with a Clothes Iron?

Today, we endeavor to answer one of those questions that, perhaps, should never have been asked: can one flat-iron one’s hair with a clothing iron?

Fragrance Friday: Ralph Hot By Ralph Lauren

Ralph_Lauren_Hot ReviewA sexy, lush fragrance, Ralph Hot’s scent makes me crave a mocha frappuccino every time I wear it. I originally got this scent years ago through BzzAgent (which, if you haven’t tried it, is a super cool way to try to new products and share about them – and no, they’re not paying me to say that). I liked it so much that I’ve kept purchasing it through the years. Priced at only $40 in the 3.4oz size, it’s a bargain perfect for date night.
