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-

It is safe to say that this year’s X-factor has sparked more excitement and talk than any other series yet. With top celebrity guest judges, public backlash and relationship rumours, viewing has been an emotional rollercoaster for all involved…and it’s not over yet!

The budding star is from Malvern, Worcestershire where The Malvern is now offering a one night spa break retreat for just £85! With this package including a luxurious treatment of your choice, a one night stay with breakfast and full use of the spas facilities you are sure to come out replenished and bursting with energy a-la-Cher!

Matt Cardle: Is the only way really Essex? Well, with Matt being the bookies favourite to win this year’s competition and the Bannatyne Spa offering a Pamper for less deal, it might just be! You can pamper yourself with a Swedish back, neck and shoulder massage or an Elemis facial as well as unlimited access to all the clubs facilities all for just £29! Give it a butchers, quick!  

Rebecca Ferguson: This Liverpudlian lass may be lacking in confidence but her soulful voice is like no other in the competition and continues to blow away the judges week after week!

Wagner Carrilho – So rumour has it Wagner, from West Yorkshire, is getting rather close with fellow Irish contestant Mary! If true…maybe the Brazilian lothario can take his new companion to his hometown and treat her to a 2 for 1 indulgence day at Alexander House Spa! This spa package includes a foot soak, paraffin wax hand treatment, Hot stone back massage, Aromatherapy facial plus a selection of cakes and drinks. We think this is a good idea Wagner and we won’t tell Mary its all for just £80! 

Aiden Grimshaw- He might have the support of Birmingham behind him but Aiden looked miserable as he failed to impress Simon and Cheryl last week with his version of ‘Jealous guy’! We say, poor guy! Well if he’s back home this week he could recharge his confidence with the stress relieving Men’s MOT package at the Bannatyne! This spa day also comes complete with unlimited use of the clubs, gym, Jacuzzi, sauna and steam room. That should put a smile back on Aiden’s face… (All text and images from press release)

Using only cocoa, stabilised oxygen, water and multi-vitamins, this potent and highly-charged Karin Herzog facial is brilliant for anti-ageing.

This conditioning treatment which lasts up to four months concentrates on a technique which penetrates the hair to repair damage and splitting. After being treated with keratin and a cocoa solution – to create a silky smooth finish – the hair is ‘ironed’ to seal in the keratin. Satisfyingly scrumptious!

Brazilian Chocolate-Hazelnut Wax (£45.00) at Strip – Soho, Chelsea, Notting Hill – London
Described by Sienna Miller as “The Best Waxing in London” and known to be Mrs Victoria Beckham’s “Favourite Boutique in London”, the Strip chain – which specialises in Brazilian waxes (minus the ouch factor) must be doing something right!
