Everybody needs a decent hairdryer in their lives, well, everyone needs an amazing hairdryer in their lives. Nobody has time for or wants to spend hours on end drying their hair and especially not me. My hair is so thick and quite long now which means it does take around 30 – 40 minutes to dry it properly. My chronic back pain means that I can’t spend that long with my arms in the air whacking around a heavy device which means I need powerful and lighter dryer. The Glamouriser Premium Hair System Ultra Dryer  at £119.99 is seriously impressive. After just one use I knew that this was an awesome dryer. It’s a super lightweight dryer that’s very easy to hold and use, and even has an advanced microprocessor motor which means reduced noise and less heat exposure. It’s surprisingly powerful with a 2200W motor that means you can dry your hair…

With anything else beauty wise I always prefer cheaper products, I’ve always managed to find cheaper versions of products that work better but never with perfume. With perfume, and excuse my language, I am a luxury bitch. I wasn’t always this way, a bottle of Ghost Midnight for £20 and I’m still happy but over the last few years I’ve caught the scent (quite literally) of the higher end world of perfumes and I am hooked. It all started with YSL Black Opium, which is still a firm favourite, and it’s progressed to the ridiculous expense of Marc Jacobs Decadence, which in my eyes is now worth every penny. Along the way I’ve tried many fragrances but I always go back to the same group of smells, including Gucci. The new Gucci Guilty Platinum (50ml at £54) is a limited edition version which is inspired by Alessandro Michele’s romantic and urban universe. I…

I really am fond of the Salon Science range, and I’ve tried quite a lot of it now. This time I’ve been trying out the Retextuluxe repair and radiance range which is for hair that has been coloured or stripped by chemical treatments. Perfect for someone who dyes their hair constantly like me! This range is made with ‘Swiss Grape seed procyanidins and natural tocopherol’ which together help stop your colour fading whilst protecting the hair from any further damage. The Retextuluxe Shampoo and Retextuluxe Conditioner are a great team to really wash, condition and nourish your hair. These were used up so quickly as they really were a pleasure to use and even Alfie thought so! Combined with the rest of these products and you’ve got a fighting team of products to keep your hair in incredible shape, or get it back to a great condition. I’m lucky that I don’t have to style my hair every…

Up until now I’ve only had a couple brushes from Crownbrush in my collection and they’ve been my essential, everyday, and favourite brushes. But I’m so pleased that I’ve now got to try more because these have been my most used brushes for weeks now and I can positively say that I am completely hooked. It’s taken me a little while to write this as I don’t get ready as much as I used to thanks to chronic pain, and I wanted to see how the brushes were after being washed. It’s the ultimate test of a brush, how does it last with constant use and then how does it react to a good clean. Some brushes can and do shred after being washed but not these. The Crown Pro Brush range truly is beautiful, they’re hand crafted and there’s a mix of synthetic and natural brushes. I’ve been sent such a…

It’s not an exaggeration at all to say that plus size brands in the UK are so behind the ones in the US. Most are using fat-shaming memes on their social media, and constantly using hardly plus sized models to advertise their clothing, it really is quite a sad scene in the UK. I can only name a handful of brands that I fully support and Gatsbylady is at the top of that list. Gatsbylady is a brand that have seriously exceeded my expectations in every way they ever could. They specialise in the most incredible quality, handmade gatsby inspired dresses that really do have that wow factor. When I first tried out one of their dresses I was astonished over the attention to detail, for several reasons. Usually when a brand caters for straight sizes as well as plus, they do tend to care a little less for the plus sizes…
