A Thanksgiving Look and a HANAair Hair Dryer Giveaway!

A Thanksgiving Look and a HANAair Hair Dryer Giveaway!
If you celebrated, how was your Thanksgiving?
Ours was pleasant but different this year. We dined out for Thanksgiving dinner for the first time ever. The restaurant we went to served a decent traditional meal with turkey, gravy, cranberry sauce, ham and so on.
The enormous room was festively decorated with lots of streamers and gigantic Thanksgiving-themed mylar balloons. With the size of the room, the buffet style, and the decorations, I felt like I was at a convention banquet not Thanksgiving. Don’t get me wrong, I’m thrilled I didn’t have to cook or clean yesterday but it simply wasn’t the same as being at home, eating familiar tasting food we made ourselves. Now we know it’s worth the effort to celebrate at home. Lesson learned.
I wore this get-up to dinner: a navy blue maxi skirt I bought last summer at Banana Republic with a thrifted chain belt and a nude colored Equipment blouse.  I wore nude patent leather ballet flats I bought in Italy last year and carried a very old Louis Vuitton Alma bag.

I like the color combination of nude, navy and gold. They compliment each other well.

When I arrived at the restaurant, I realized I was a bit overdressed. I could have just worn jeans but I enjoy dressing up for holidays. Do you?

I even gave my hair a good blow out. I wanted to play with my new hair dryer that I recently received from Misikko.

They asked me if I would review their HANAair Professional hair dryer and since I was in the market for a new hair dryer, I jumped at the chance. My hairdryer was heavy, cumbersome and loud.

My HANAair hair dryer came with lots of extra beauty goodies, too, like an eyelash curler, teddy bear,
sachet and nail files.  And not just because I am a blogger.
Everyone gets them!

The moment I took the lightweight dryer out of the box I knew it was going to be a dream to use and I was right.

The HANAair features an extra long cord, a cool button, and hot and warm, and high and low settings. It’s quiet and the Italian design makes it easy to manage. The best part is the tourmaline lined ceramic heater that dries hair more than twice as fast as a typical dryer. No wonder they call it  their “Best Professional Hair Dryer!”

I love having a professional hair dryer and now I can get a just-stepped-out-of-the-salon look right in my own home.

Disclosure: I received a HANAair Professional hair dryer to review and keep from Misikko. All opinions about the HANAair Professional hair dryer and Misikko are my own. 


xo, Adrienne

    You looked wonderful ! We had Christmas dinner at our local chinese restaurant last year as it is easy to wheel Nanny from the nursing home to them. But I know exactly what you are talking about when you say that it’s not the same! I loved not having to do all the shopping and fridge organising and cooking etc. but you do feel a bit like you’ve missed out! ALAS we will be organising another restaurant again this year, though I think I will sneak in a bit of a home dinner for boxing day! Plus then I am getting hints from the kids for a new year’s eve party!

    You look fab in that outfit – but you always look wonderful – so no, I don’t think you were overdressed! Have a very HAPPY weekend! 🙂

  5. November 29, 2013 / 2:22 pm

    You look lovely! We had a wonderful dinner at home. We tried something new and after soaking our 10 lb turkey breast in a brine for 48 hours, we smoked it. It was amazing and lots of fun. After dinner we watched our first old favorite Christmas moving of the year, Christmas Vacation. Let the holidays begin!

  6. November 29, 2013 / 2:49 pm

    How wonderful you look.
    I know that a hair dryer such as the HanAair would be so beneficial to me as I dry my hair.

  7. November 29, 2013 / 2:50 pm

    Would be wonderful! Three girls in our house.

  8. November 29, 2013 / 3:15 pm

    Would love a fancy new dryer! Anything to cut down on the 20 minutes of drying time…

  9. November 29, 2013 / 3:47 pm

    I am actually in the market for a new hairdryer! Awesome.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  10. November 29, 2013 / 5:00 pm

    I love to dress up on special holidays, so I definitely do no think you were overdressed. You looked great! And, I’m in the market for a hair dryer so will have to remember this. Happy weekend!

  11. November 29, 2013 / 5:29 pm

    I think it is important to dress up for holidays, too. I would love a new hair dryer so I entered.

  12. November 29, 2013 / 6:13 pm

    We spent Thanksgiving away and I had the same feeling, did not quite seem the same. Next year I will cooking again. We did one thing from my bucketlist and were in NY to see Macy’s parade !
    Your outfit is great !

    Your festive look is just great! As per me concerned, I also enjoy to dress up for opportunities, like this. But unfortunately I realized, that – at least in Hungary – it is a bit out of fashion. However, I try to ignore this, and I aim to wear elegant clothes even when I host visitors and I am busy in the kitchen!

  21. November 30, 2013 / 7:31 am

    Adrienne you look great as always! Love the many features of this hairdryer-thank you for the opportunity to win 🙂

  22. November 30, 2013 / 9:02 am

    I would like to win this hairdryer because mine takes FOREVER to dry my hair. I’m sure the one I have is damaging my hair, and I would like to have a new one that takes less time to dry.

  23. November 30, 2013 / 9:13 am

    We had a low key Thanksgiving as well as my husband works for Walmart and had to be to work by 3 p.m. I want to be entered to win this hairdryer because mine is getting old!

  24. November 30, 2013 / 9:13 am

    My hairdryer is just about on it’s way out. It is soooo loud! would love to win this dryer – it sounds fantastic.

  25. November 30, 2013 / 9:25 am

    I’d love to win this hairdryer! Thanks for the opportunity!


  26. November 30, 2013 / 9:53 am

    We had a fun Thanksgiving with our 2 adult sons and their girlfriends here! That hairdryer looks amazing. I have shoulder length thick hair and need a good dryer.

  27. November 30, 2013 / 11:35 am

    Happy thanksgiving! Spending the holiday in the mountains of western Maryland. Your outfit is lovely, and the hair dryer did a great job. Perhaps it might make mine look as good?

  28. November 30, 2013 / 2:01 pm

    You look gorgeous!!

  29. November 30, 2013 / 4:29 pm

    Happy Thanksgiving Adrienne! Love your outfit for the holiday and your hair looks gorgeous. What a fun giveaway! I was at the Petaluma outlets and had a ‘shark’ Equipment blouse in my hand. It was a lovely gray but in the end I decided it was really my shade. Love this little number on you.
    xx, Heather

  31. November 30, 2013 / 6:22 pm

    Adrienne, Love the navy skirt and the pale Equipment blouse! SO pretty and perfect for Thanksgiving. It’s funny, but I always think going out for Thanksgiving sounds so nice. I agree though it can sometimes be disappointing! I guess nothing beats the home for it, though it is a lot of work.

    Love to get this dryer. It sounds great.

    I’d love to be entered to win the Hanaair dryer!

    For Thanksgiving, we’ve gone out to big dinners, eaten at restaurants, stayed home, gone to family’s house and even blew off the whole holiday by going to Mexico. In the end they all have their merits and drawbacks. I’m not big on tradition though. In fact tradition always seemed like a nice fancy way of saying “I’m a very rigid person who does things exactly the same year after year”. Good for you! You went out, dressed up and didn’t get stuck with a pile of dishes!!

  36. December 1, 2013 / 3:40 pm

    I would love to win this hair dryer as I need something that will dry my hair well, and not make my hair frizz out. Thanks for the giveaway! DamianMom at yahoo dot com

  37. December 1, 2013 / 5:05 pm

    Beautiful pictures Adrienne! And, what a great opportunity to win a great hair dryer! I “upgraded” my old conair for a new one about 4 years ago and even that made a big difference! I would love to see what a difference a HANAair hair dryer would make.

  38. December 1, 2013 / 6:21 pm

    I would so love to have a high quality dryer like this, mainly for my daughters. My oldest has incredibly thick hair and it takes sooo long to dry. She gets antsy waiting for the little underpowered Conair to get the job done.

  39. December 2, 2013 / 12:10 pm

    Love the pics! You look great. And what a cool giveaway!

  40. December 2, 2013 / 3:16 pm

    I would LOVE to be entered to win this. My current hairdryer is so pathetic — this would be 1000% better than what I have!

    This dryer looks really nice!

  47. December 5, 2013 / 5:35 am

    I thought I had commented but I don’t know. My thick hair is in my eyes. I think I need this dryer.
    Anyway, love your blog, love that you figure out what the trends are because I never seem to know.

  48. December 5, 2013 / 6:13 am

    I would love to win this! I hate doing my hair! All my tools are very old hand me downs from people who bought new ones. They are all, as my 5 year old would say “it’s on its last leg, huh mom?” My blow dryer is probably 15 years old, and as you mentioned, very heavy. It takes FOREVER to dry! It would be amazing to feel pampered and spoiled 🙂

  49. December 5, 2013 / 10:38 pm

    Thank you for hosting this giveaway and would love to be entered for a chance to win this.


  50. December 6, 2013 / 2:37 pm

    I would like to win this… because I need all the help I can get with my hair! Thanks for hosting the giveaway 🙂
