ghd Air Hair dryer -Vintage Pink 

I’ve been using this amazing hairdryer from ghd recently. I have to admit I’m a little lazy when it comes to styling my hair. I’ve little patience and time especially in the mornings when I’m busy with the kids etc. Having had curly hair growing up I never really learnt to straighten it myself. I would always wake up and leave it. If I did style it, it would be just a matter of leaving it dry to form it’s natural curl. Now though I love my hair smooth and rarely wear it curly.

Learning to straighten it has been a long process. As well as finding the right products it’s also been about using the right technology ie hairdryers and straighteners. I have to say since I was given this hair dryer my life has been made that much easier. Like I said I was never one for fancy hair products but this has definitely changed my opinion. I would never really invest in expensive hair dryers. My mum was always telling me too but I never listened. She’s been going on about using this hairdryer for ages, so I was very happy to be given such a fab product to review.

This is light and easy to use. It smoothes hair with minimum effort. I even got a lovely finish using it with no fancy brush or products- it’s that good. Control is fantastic – it doesn’t blast your hair. With it’s concentrated control you get a chance to work with your hair instead of it being blown everywhere. For someone like myself who struggles to be patient this hairdryer works quickly and with me rather then against. It enables the user to concentrate on sections of hair one at a time. Easy to handle with super sleek results. . My children even enjoy using it as it drys the hair quickly and without any over burning sensation. I even rough dry my daughters hair with it and her hair falls beautifully. Definitely a great hair dryer and  also a great gift for christmas. xx Dawn

Slightly obsessed with these gorgeous gold pieces. I’ve been generally browsing online as I do and came across these gorgeous golden items that I thought would make amazing christmas gifts. So excited that I put them togther in a little boutique style post.

Christmas is coming rather quickly and it’s definately time to start thinking about shopping for pressies ,well not just thinking but actually buying. An expensive and hectic time of year for sure.If your needing a little gifting inspo then try these high impact gift ideas. Presents with a WOW factor.
I always love something sparkly and it seems this festive season anything gold goes.
When things are coated in gold they seem that little more fabulous and luxurious, especially as gifts. Also tempting for a little self indulgence too.

Gold tone is high on my agenda this winter, not just as gifts but for dressing too. I’ll be putting together christmas outfit ideas for the coming party season too in the next week so keep checking in for something a little different. Wether it’s gold tone or the real deal I think something of this kind is a perfect gift idea. Happy shopping xx Dawn

I just wanted to post up a quick picture from the other evening when I was out for dinner. I was capturing my make up look over on instagram but thought I’d share it here too. I’ve been trying a few new products recently from the tom ford range. The illuminating primer in peach and the new illuminating highlight powder duo. When used together they give a beautiful radiant glow. I’ve worked in two blusher colours (ravish and savage) to help contour and give depth, then added the highlighting duo powder over the cheek to give a beautiful glow to my look. It’s hard to capture it fully with just and iPhone and an outreached hand but I’ve been really happy with the effects. I’ve used my favourite eyeko eyeliner here. I received it to trial the other week and now I don’t go a day without it. It’s so easy to apply. You can get a thick line if you want for a real cat eye or go gently and get a fine line to follow the contours of the eyelid. I also use a soft eyeliner pencil for the lower line smudged in with a brush. It just softens the look for me. Mascara in black to finish the eyes. I tend not to wear a lot of make up but would love to learn more about applying it to get great results. that last the whole day/night I know there’s a lot more I can do but its a work in progress like everything, getting things right takes time. But I do love trying new products and hopefully sharing them here. If you have any great products you think I should know about please feel free to share them below. Happy sunday. xx Dawn

A few weekend accessories. My favourite make up pieces and easy flats for a little weekend ease. Added glamour with a pair of dropped earrings and bracelet. A hat is always useful for a bad hair day or just to finish an outfit. Chic weekend dressing . I had to include the makeup as these are two of my favourite additions to my make up bag. The new tom ford primer in peach makes skin look even and clear and worn with the highlighter skin looks translucent and fresh.

Summer beauty just got sorted. This fab bag of treats is available exclusively at Selfridges this thursday. Packed with goodies and summer essentials to help maintain and enhance. Perfect timing if your off on your hols or even if your back. Keeping up on summer skin care can be a big job, but if you get the right products you can keep skin soft and looking gorgeous ! I love using a fake tan, so this James read face tanner with an SPF is perfect for me. I try not to tan my face and usually wear a very high factor when on my holidays. Baring skin on the beach can be daunting for the first time in months. Coming out of winter where we’ve been under wraps and skin hasn’t seen the light of day can leave it looking dry and pale. I never like my skin the first few weeks of summer dressing. It takes time for the sun to do it’s job and for skin to look healthy and human again. I use a daily moisturiser on my legs and arms throughout the summer. There’s a great one in this pack by Clarins which I’m really looking forward to using. Also a moisturising grape water spray to use when travelling. A spray to help set your make up. Which I’ve never used but I’m hoping will do the job in the heat. I find it hard to keep my make up looking good on hot days. I’ve often given up on it and I go completely natural at the beach or pool. So it’s going to be fun trying these new pieces out for the first time. There’s lots in the bag so I’ve listed them below for reference.

Its valued at £176 but retailing for £40 so grab it whilst its available. It launches tomorrow and will be available to purchase online here.


Have a great summer pamper xx Dawn
