After a kind invite from the lovely ladies at Liz Earle I hopped along to the Flagship store in Chelsea for a Wreath making evening in aid of their new addition to the ever so popular energising range. We were greeted with Mulled wine (elder flower for the non drinkers like myself) and minced pies with a display of beautiful wreath making goodies! 

January will see an amazing launch of ‘Energising Body Lotion’, a potent yet silky body cream packed with 19 naturally active ingredients including: Caffeine, ginkgo biloba, chestnut, vitamin E, borage, grapefruit, rosemary, peppermint and many more. This luscious blend will have you picked up from those Winter blues in no time at all! The body lotion comes in a sleek long bottle that’s easy enough to carry with you, the texture of the lotion is lovely and silky and it absorbs into the skin very quickly and of course, the smell is to die for as with every other Liz Earle product!

Here are some pictures from our lovely Wreath making evening!

The lovely table full of Wreath goodness!

Majority of the props used for our wreath’s were in fact the main ingredients which you will find in Energising Body Lotion!

As you all may know.. I love my Natural and Organic skincare! I am also trying to lead a more Greener life style, so when I was sent an EcoTool brush I was very chuffed!

EcoTools, from what I hear have been around for some time, there unbelievably soft brushes are one of the first to use sustainable resources to minimise negative effects on the environment.  The brushes feature bamboo handles, a highly replenishable resource and cruelty free taklon bristles. Recycled aluminium ferrules are used to construct the brushes.

These brushes have fast become favorite makeup tolls for celebs and pro makeup artists who themselves believe in a greener lifestyle. I have been using my blusher brush everyday since I received it, I cant seem to change it over because the coverage I get from it is so even. The brush is super soft and makeup glides on like you have skin as smooth as satin. The bristles are not at all harsh or sharp so you’ll Have no prickly sensations like you can get from other brand Makeup brushes. The great selling point of these fabulous makeup tools is the price, considering the quality and the Eco friendly nature, these brushes start at as little as £3.99, not bad at all I say!! Amazing quality and you get to help out the environment too.

EcoTools are available to buy from Tesco and Superdrug stores nationwide.

I’ve never actually owned a pair of GHD’S (sad, I know!) So I have always wondered what all the fuss is about.  Everywhere I go the number one straighter always seems to be a GHD! I was more than happy when I was sent one to trial.. if anything it has really helped out my overly curious mind as to why these straighteners are so special!

The GHD Deluxe Midnight Collection is one of those Limited Edition sets that are always released by GHD this time of the year! It’s a very Chique set that comes with plenty of accessories and add on’s including a cute little hair dryer. It is the perfect Christmas present!! *cough, cough GHD.. you can pay me later*

Right so now.. Shamefully may I add I am going to show you what I have been working with! I will probably have the piss taken out of me something chronic for showing you guys this, however I have to be honest! Here are the straighteners I use-

A very old pair of Morphy Richards straighteners. The ceramic plates are non existent and after using the GHD’s I have released these take FOREVER to sort my barnet out!! Usually when using these it takes at least 20 mins to do my short hair! Can you imagine what I went through when I had hair down to my ass?? OMG!! 

Moving on, I love the sleek design of these GHD’s, all black with gold ceramic plates.

So.. How did I get on with them you ask? well… I am now starting to understand the hype which surrounds these Iconic straighteners! When it comes down to my hair, I’m rather lucky. I have overly thick wavy/curly hair which can be worn either straight if I straighten it or curly if I let it dry naturally and slap some product on it. However, having thick hair can be a right pain in the ass when you need to straighten it. Using these straighteners was a breeze, my styling time was cut down to half compared to my Morphy Richards Irons but what confuses me the most is im not sure how and why these are so good. After turning them on and getting the two beeps to go ahead and start styling I honestly thought they were broken, there was no heat coming off them at all! When I placed my hair in them the ceramic plates were so smooth that it felt like the straighteners hadn’t even gripped my hair and almost felt like my hair had slipped right out of them, I was surprised to look in the mirror to find a perfectly piece of straight hair which did NOT need going over again unlike my Morphy Richards, which I have to use 3 times to even get a straight piece of hair! In all very impressed. You cannot feel the heat at all nor is there steam which escapes from the straightener, these straighteners are indeed magic. I think it’s the time and effort that goes into the technology that makes them so special.

Here’s a pic of my very shiny and smooth hair-
