A new home + a giveaway!

In case you havent noticed… we finally have a home to call our own! That’s right, ladies and gents, theNotice has now moved to We’ve had a bit of a design revamp as well, but the archives and comments have hopefully transferred over correctly. If not, feel free to give me a shout at

Update: unfortunately, the comments didn’t transfer over :( We have all of the comments from Sept ’07 to Oct ’09, but nothing from the past year. And (lucky us), no way to fix it. Sorry, my lovelies!

Please update your bookmarks to, and make sure to re-click the “join this site” button! (I couldn’t get the Friend Connect widget to transfer over either, unfortunately.)

But anyhow! Onto the giveaway, which we’ve timed to celebrate our exciting (re-)launch. Salon Hive, a little online shop that stocks everything from hair shears (they’re apparently pretty excited about about their kamisori shears) to flat irons has offered to supply one of the latter for a giveaway.

For the chance to win a Karmin G3 iron…

Leave a comment letting me know what colour (images above) you’d like to receive!

Seriously: it’s that easy, so get entering! This giveaway ends in two weeks (that’s Nov 29th at 11:59PM GMT-8:00 for those of us who are calendar-challenged). To enter, you have to be (a) over the age of majority in your country of residence, or (b) over 13 with parental consent.

If you’d like an extra entry a bunch of extra entries, you can do any or all of these…

  1. Follow theNotice through Friend Connect (1 extra entry),
  2. Link to this post on your blog, twitter, facebook etc (1 extra entry; please leave the link in the comments), or
  3. Comment on this post about anything (anything at all!) each day until the contest ends. (A maximum of thirteen extra entries!)

I know that good hot tools can be a huge drain on one’s budget, so I’m thrilled to be bringing you this giveaway :) May the best luckiest lady win!

    Excellent new site! And as for the Karmin: red.

  • Amy

    Ooooooh they're lovely! The white one is my favourite though, I think :)

  • Kate & Zena

    Hm, you know, I NEVER use hair tools, but who's to stop me from winning a free one to test out? Maybe it'll solve my "hair won't hold a curl for more than one hour" syndrome.

    The black one because all of my other hair tools are either that greyish-silver or black. It HAS TO MATCH. I can't have a loner; it would drive me positively insane.

    And I follow through GFC. Ha ha ha ha.

    • Heck, maybe it will! :D I can have that syndrome on a bad day too, and my Misikko iron fixed it up nicely.

      Good luck my dear!

  • Alex

    I was worried that your blog had disappeared! Loving the new home and hopefully that red iron will find a new home with me!!! :D

    I like the red straightener, but honestly, any one of the colours would be just fine with me — my hair is that hideous not-quite-curly but not-straight either, and it's a PITA to style. Also, it's my birthday today (well, for another three minutes…)
