GHD Aura

For years I have been a big fan of GHD, in school it was all the craze to have the latest GHD hair straighteners. I unfortunately wasn't able to buy my own and I remember moving to England not knowing what a straightener was. Its true I had no clue, in South Africa I had to wear my hair up at all times for school. When I moved to England I suddenly had the freedom to wear my hair down, the downside to this was I had no idea how to style it.  The first time I went to a hairdressers in England I had my hair cut and styled with GHDs, It changed my life. My hair was suddenly an on trend style and had a perfect shine to it, I even went back to the same hairdressers for my prom and had amazing curls put into my hair using GHDs.

This hairdryer has given me the confidence to style my hair again, I have been leaving it to dry on its own for years now. I have never been more excited to try out a hairdryer in my life, for the first use I fell in love. The shine and ease of using this hairdryer was amazing, I have never been a fan of faffing around with my hair. This hairdryer helps to perfect drying my hair, giving the precision to work on separate pieces of the hair without clips. No one has eyes in the back of their head but using this hairdryer I was able to dry every section of my hair perfectly straight. I am going to test it out more by trying to get my hair a little more voluminous. I am loving using this, it makes my everyday hair feel shiny and cared for. Usually I wash it and leave it to dry but without using GHD Aura it doesn't give it the shine it craves, so from now on I want to use this beautiful hairdryer. 

I recently got my hair dyed light brown and cut, I was so excited to try the hairdryer out on my new hair. I gave my hair a quick blast with the hairdryer before attaching the nozzle to it, I then dried my hair with a brush. It was so easy to style my hair, the hairdryer itself is very light to hold up. It looks beautiful, I doubt I will keep it anywhere but the box after each use because its so beautiful. I loved how smooth my hair felt after using it, almost like having your own personal hair dresser. Nothing better than the feeling of freshly done hair at the hairdressers, this is how mine felt after doing it myself. I feel like a changed person, this is an amazing tool for any lady!

I love that the hairdryer has a super long lead, no more struggling to dry my hair trying to reach my mirror and no more arm cramps. The Aura nozzle creates a ring of cold air around it, no more burning your scalp, I love that there is no chance of it overheating. 

I have been enjoying using the GHD Aura, I feel like it has changed my outlook on my own hair. What do you think?

Guest Post - Hair care by Girl Talk With Laura!

Well a big hellooooo to all of my wonderful friend KEMPLES  and her lovely followers! I've hijacked her blog for the day.

You may or may not know me or my blog 'Girl Talk With Laura' but this is why i am here.. to meet you all and to introduce myself and for you to get to know me a little through this post. If you like it then you can head over to my blog and follow me there to read more and keep up to date with me. I am fairly new to this blogging world so i appreciate all the support. 
My blog is all about fashion and beauty and basically the things you chat to the lasses with, apart from the boy talk! 

Today's post is all about hair care! I don't know about you but my hair is seriously feeling the effects of these holiday conditions I've put it through lately. Sun, Sea and bad hair care products (check out my last 'Disappointing Products Post') have took its toll on my hair and you can tell. Since i bleach my hair and that certainly doesn't help either! So before my next appointment at the hairdressers to apply yet more bleach to my roots i need to make sure i can try and save my hair before it dies a slow and painful death!

So to start with i had a well needed trip to Superdrug to buy the supplies, Superdrug is my go to high street shop for all beauty products because of their prices and range. You can always rely on them to have an offer on! Off I went and found myself reaching for the Tresemme range as I've had a hair mask from them before and it was rather good! The brand I was stepping away from was Aussie, and if you want to know why then you really should read my 'Disappointing Products' post. 

I found the Tresemme Expert Collection jumping out at me because mostly it was on special offer but also because I've never tried it and i am a sucker for new things. Another thing about it was the size of the shampoo bottle, this is slighly embarrassing but i do have really small hands and the shampoo and conditioner bottles for their normal range are just to big for me to get a hold of and squeeze out the product! Don't even laugh guys. Anyway, this one is a little smaller so even i can cope with it! I'm pretty sure it was 2 for £7 which always sucks me in and there was not much left so i figured out that it was pretty popular. Since there was much left i ended up getting the Tresemme Expert Collection Keratin Smooth Shampoo and the Deep Treatment Masque.

I then spotted the Pantene Dry Oil which was a bargain price of £3.23 or something silly like that! But i'm recently away this is back to full price now which is £6.99 so aren't I glad i grabbed it whilst i could! I uploaded a picture of this to my Instagram along with my other buys and did actually have a comment saying she is sick of blogger promoting bad products because all this does is coat the hair in a plastic and suffocates it. Which yeah could be true. But i am no expert, all i am is a girl in a need of a fix that will help my hair and i am trying new products to see if they work. At this point, they could or could not work for me and i do believe every person is different. 

But luckily for me these products DID work! My hair no longer feels like its about to snap and it doesn't have those random horrible dry curly bits on the end that are the bane of my life. I feel the shampoo and masque are amazing at calming my hair down and making it smooth and soft. When my hair is still damp i will apply 3 squirts of the dry oil onto the ends and let it dry naturally. 
The Pantene Dry Oil smells amazing and if your hair smells nice then that just generally makes you feel better as when your hair wafts in the wind its something that brings out the smell and you are reminded how good it is. Also, if your hair smells nice then it does attract the boys! Boys love a good smelling head of hair. 

These have brought my hair back to life and i feel much better about it rather than thinking i was going to have to chop it all off!

Hope this helps your hair problems and it was lovely to meet all of you.

Blogosphere Magazine Issue 4 - Louis Cole

You might be aware from day one of this magazine being released I have been a fan, from issue one I was hooked. Issue one had Essie Button on the cover which caught my eye at first but I also knew it would be great to have a magazine showcasing so many amazing bloggers. I love that there is a huge variety of bloggers in this magazine, it doesn't focus on one style. We all have something to offer to the blog world and so does this magazine, every issue is spot on. I love to buy it because it helps me feel inspired by so many amazing bloggers and for me there is nothing else like it. 

Issue three was also one of my favourites due to Fleur being on the cover, she is one my all time favourite bloggers as well as Youtuber. Every page has something new to offer you and I love the layout of the magazine. Each style of blog such as fashion, beauty and lifestyle have there own section. It flows very well throughout the magazine, I love the advice sections and interviews. This issue has Louis Cole on the cover well known as Fun For Louis. I sit down to read this as soon as it comes through my door, I read from page to page. I like to keep them safe on my book shelf, its great to be able to look back at them and find inspiration. I love it when a blog inspires you, you know that is a great thing. 

This issue I loved the story on Rise of the teen blogger, its great to see blogs inspiring young people to write. I wish I started my blog way back when I was 16, its become a massive part of my life and my true passion. We all have something to offer to the blog world, there is never too many blogs. I would highly recommend you start one if that's what you want to do. Go for it and see how it goes, if it is your passion it will shine through on your blog. we all can inspire each other and help each other. 

You can get Blogosphere magazine in print form or digital, the e book is £3 and the print is 4. I love to buy the magazine so that I can keep it on my shelf but sometimes I am tempted to buy it on my Ipad so that I know I have it with me when I travel on the train. Delivery is super fast once it has been announced that the new issue is available which is great because once I have purchased the magazine I want to read it as soon as I can. 

Overall great advice, you find some amazing blogs through it and it inspires you. What more could you want in a magazine? I think they deserve all the success in the world, they work super hard on every issue!
