Lazarus corrected it, but didn't mention it:

una buena chica (not un and not buen)

Calvo: ¡qué bueno verte por estos lares! smile

"Voy a prometer..." is "I am going to promise...", which means that you will make the promise sometime in the future.
Qfreed's sentence can be used, if you use "seré" (foy "yo"), but it is more common to say:

Prometo ser una buena chica desde ahora / de ahora en adelante
Prometo que seré una buena chica desde ahora / de ahora en adelante

P.D. Sorry for that "china". Silly copy & paste.

Prometo que será chica buena en adelante.

Just a guess. Wait for someone who knows what they are talking about.
