Another Fabulous Ojon Offer - Spend £20, Get Free Volumizing Shampoo & Conditioner 250ml (full size) Duo!

Ojon products are highly thought of by just about everybody I know that have used them, and whilst they're normally a slightly more expensive brand, I've found that the products I've tried so far have been totally worth their price tag.

So, when I saw they were offering 2 full sized Volume Advance products (1 shampoo and 1 conditioner), worth £37.50 with any £20 purchase, I couldn't not tell you about it... and also take advantage of the deal myself, of course! All you need to do is enter the code VOLUME at checkout after adding your chosen product to your cart, the rest is done automatically for you.

I bought a volumizing styling product for £20 (with free postage) and, because of this offer will actually receive the 3, full sized products - working out at a tiny £6.66 per item, not much more than you'd pay for your average supermarket shampoo/conditioner/styling products - a total bargain, don't you think?!

I actually don't mind paying full price for Ojon (and similar other) products, as I think hair care is very important but offers like this are still very welcome here, as they make these products a LOT more affordable, meaning I can spend the money I saved on other pretty things (or totally sensible things, like tea towels, and stuff)!

Will you be taking up this offer?

Normal Service Will Be Resumed Shortly!

Hello my dears, hope you're all well? I just wanted to put up a quick post explaining my lack of posting recently, which is due largely to the face that my computer has broken and I'm still waiting for the part that I need, so I can fix it and get back on with my blogging.

I'm hoping that I can fudge together a few posts before the part arrives, as I'm missing it so much, but so far I've not been successful with my attempts at this.

Have I missed much? x

Lush Easter Products!

This is just a quick post as the products only arrived about 30 minutes ago in the post, and since it's Easter tomorrow, I wanted to get them up asap. I'm still without my main computer, so I apologise that these aren't the best photographs I've done, I'm just working with what I currently have available.

If you're on a diet, don't like chocolate or can't eat chocolate for any other reason, then you need not feel left out this Easter. as Lush have plenty of lovely products available to pamper yourself with.
Chick Knot Wrap with Ballistic: Lush have used wraps for a while, and I think this is a great idea as not only do you get a lovely scarf (they usually use vintage scarves), you're also reducing waste - so it's a win win!

Inside the wrap you can have any product, but inside mine was a Candy Fluff scented pink egg which is gorgeous, and I can't wait to get it in my bath later on tonight. I love Lush ballistics and have done for many years so I know I'm in for a treat when I use it later on.

A new product that I've never used before is their re-useable bubble bars, and these ones are shaped like carrots and frankly, look fab. The scent is very fresh, and seems quite unisex - and if their previous bubble bars are anything to go by, then this should be a great addition to your bath.

Available right now at Lush stores and online at if you don't mind waiting for them to be posted to you.

Sorry for the rushed nature of this, I just wanted to get it up in time for you to pop to the shops, should you decide you'd like one of these products. x

ghd Scarlet Deluxe Collection!

I've used ghd straighteners for the last 5 years, but before using them I used Kodo straighteners, believing that since they were solid ceramic and got to the same temperature, they'd be just as good but without the larger price tag. And they were good, until the day that I tried my sister's ghd's and realised how much better they were, in pretty much every way, ease of use, results etc. The difference was so noticeable that I ditched the Kodo straighteners immediately in favour of a pair of ghd Mark 4's and I've used these ever since, they haven't failed me yet!

The new ghd Deluxe Scarlet Collection gift set is a thing of beauty, in every way! When I received the box, I think I might have squeeled a little at its gorgeous presentation. A beautiful box, with Art Deco styling, containing a gorgeous, scarlet red clutch bag, a travel hair dryer, 2 sectioning clips (that actually do hold hair well), a vanity case (useful and looks good) and of course, the ghd Classic Gold styler with new, red plates and separate heat guard.
The scarlet bag, which, like the box has distinct Art Deco styling, really has the wow factor and when you open the box, I expect it will be the first thing that catches your eye, like it was for me. I'd be happy to take it out with me, let alone store my straighteners in it, which is its primary purpose - you can even put your straighteners into this bag when hot, as it's heat resistant, which makes it perfect for travelling.

Along with the heat resistant bag, the set contains a dedicated heat guard that slips over the plates of the straighteners that will protect surfaces from being burned whilst in use. I have found these to be useful, although you do need to position them perfectly, or be faced with faffing to get them on and off if they're not at the right angle. You'll get a feel for this within minutes of using it, so it's not too much of a problem at all.
Talking of the plates, I mentioned that they're red, but they also have a slight sparkle to them which totally appeals to the magpie in me, although I haven't been able to capture them very well in the photographs below. Although not an essential thing, I do think think this adds a lovely touch to the look of the straighteners and makes them feel a bit more glamorous in the process, which is totally in keeping with the collection as a whole.

The plates also seem smoother than on my previous model, which is great for straightening as there's less drag and catching, however I do find curling with these slightly more diffiult - which I expect is due to this, as there's less 'grab' so to speak. Not such a problem as these days I generally use specific tools for curling anyway!
The straighteners are pretty much the same design as your average ghd in every other way, other than the red styling and a slightly larger, easier to use power switch, and they work in exactly the same way.

However, I have noticed that they don't get quite as hot as my ghd MK4 straighteners, and whilst this isn't such a bad thing as it's kinder to your hair, I do find it takes a little bit longer to get the same smooth effect - not long enough to make this a deal breaker, just an extra stroke or so, depending on the thickness of the hair you're using it on.

There's no way of controlling the temperature either, which I suspect is why they've made them slightly kinder to hair as I'd expect it's better to give the option for people to use an extra stroke for thicker/coarser hair, than it is for people with finer hair to scorch/damage their hair with the hotter plates.

Finally, the dryer that comes with the set is actually quite good - it's great for travelling as the handle folds and makes the unit even more compact, yet it still packs enough power to actually dry hair, which some travel hairdryers I've owned in the past have failed to do.
All in all, this collection is a success, it looks good, and works well too. It's a perfect option for a gift, as I think it will wow the recipient - or even just a nice treat for yourself!

Available from for £149!

Wordless Wednesday - Ladurée Macarons!

On a recent visit to London, I indulged myself and bought a box of utterly fabulous macarons from the lavish Ladurée store at Covent Garden.

I bought a box of 8, but unfortunately, 2 of them were scoffed (by Mr Beauty Scoop and I) before I managed to photograph them - whoops. The flavours I went for were: Milk Chocolate, Almond Marshmallow, Cherry Blossom and Salted Caramel (2 of each) and they were all absolutely gorgeous, although my favourite was the Cherry Blossom. Yum.

They're pricey but they're worth it. Have you ever had Ladurée macarons? x

Lindsay Lohan is looking a little better in these recent photographs, largely due to the fact that she's ditched the unflattering, and ageing blonde shade that she was sporting, to go back to her natural red hue.

I think this is a positive step towards her looking her best, but her skin and facial features have yet to go through the sam, positive transformation, and I'm wondering if her partying and other bad choices have left irreversible damage - hope not!

What do you think, are you glad to see Ms Lohan  has gone back to her natural hair colour?

Pinch, punch, first day of the month - happy April Fool's Day my dears.
