We all know how much of a bore doing our hair is, I know I hate it with an actual passion but unfortunately, it has to be done. Personally, I've never really paid THAT much attention to my hair so when I was invited to get my hair styled by GHD, I thought I'd give it a crack. At the time, my hair was at the super awkward length after having a pixie cut and I'm still letting it grow out so I proved a tad bit of a challenge but oh my goodness, I didn't realise that GHDs were actually as good as everybody says they are. My hair went from crazy curly to super sleek without much effort at all and I was actually amazed. My hair has never been that straight without a lot of effort.
The GHD Serene Pearl Platinum Styler is the new set of hair stylers that GHD have released and it has some very special qualities including the all new tri-zone technology. This basically means that the heat from the sensors stays at a hair safe level that reduces hair breakage by over 50% and increasing shine by 20%. What I didn't know until my GHD hair appointment is that it's actually unsafe to style your hair at too low a temperature as well as too high, mind blown. The GHD Serene Pearl Platinum Styler basically stays at the perfect temperature so you don't have to worry about damaging your hair when you're styling it, which for me is always a worry.
All I can say is that I've found using the GHD Serene Pearl Platinum Styler like a dream at home and I can seriously straighten my hair in less than 15 minutes which is totally how I need it when I'm rushing to get to work!

Sleek Midas Touch Highlighting Palette
At first, the highlighting trend genuinely scared the hell out of me. Let's face it, I could make myself look like so much of a tit and I had no clue where to even start. When I saw that Sleek were doing little palettes with actual instructions I was over the moon. The Sleek Midas Touch Highlighting Palette instantly attracted me because of the range of colours in it and I thought the rose pink colour was just really lovely. The longevity of the colours is great and I've been loving using this on a daily basis. I started off using the palette the way it told me, especially seeing as I was a little scared of it but now I am getting much more confident using highlight and I really love using Rhinestone (pink) on my cheeks instead of Solitaire (white) but I am really happy with this palette.

Wilkinson Sword Hydro Silk Razor* // Boots (£8.40)
Guys, it's razor season again and let's face it, we all want that smooth feeling in the summer months (wait, all the months! Nothing is better than that feeling of smooth legs on fresh sheets, am I right?) and Wilkinson Sword have come up with a really great razor for that feeling. I'm not usually one for this kind of review but I've been looking for a razor like this for a while. I HATE shaving, I really do but this razor has 5 curving blades and a water activated serum so not only does it get super close, but it puts moisture back into the skin. I have stupidly dry skin (everywhereeee) so I obviously have to moisturise like crazy but I have found that my skin is a lot better after shaving with this razor, and the fact that it gets super close is lovely because it gives me an extra day where I don't have to think about shaving again.
The moisturising serum is full of marine extracts and shea butter and I do love a bit of shea butter in my life. We all want convenience in our life, especially when it comes to the boring stuff and I'm one of those women that just finds this stuff to take up a little too much time so when I find something that gives me back some time, I love it. I'd definitely recommend the Hydro Silk Razor to anyone because it's definitely the best I've used in ages!
Are you a shaver, or a waxer?
