Rusk Flat Iron – This Saturday’s Shout-Out

I adore my Rusk Flat Iron.  I got it as a gift for my birthday from Andy almost 3 years ago (I asked for it) and it has truly changed my life as far as getting ready in the morning.  I had tried many other flat irons, but NONE have compared to the Rusk.  The only
