Parlux 3200 Ceramic & Ionic Edition Hair Dryer

I have just upgraded my hair dryer to the Parlux 3200 Ceramic & Ionic Edition $169.95. This is my first salon quality hair dryer and I have absolutely no idea why I didn’t upgrade sooner!

The Parlux 3200 hair dryer has won awards including InStyle’s best hair dryer and is used by hairdressing professionals all over the world. This dryer not only dries your hair faster, but it also reduces the amount of damage that your hair suffers when using a regular dryer.

The combined effect of ceramics and negative ions radiates heat inside the hair without damaging the hair. Drops of water are broken down into micro-molecules which are absorbed by the hair, leaving it frizz free and healthy. Moisture can then easily penetrate the hair shaft leaving your hair moisturized and looking soft and shiny. The negative ions also reduce static electricity and stress on the hair.

This dryer not only dries my hair super quickly, it also cuts down my drying time in half. It seriously took me less than 3 minutes – trust me, i timed it! My hair is fine and thin and generally lacks body. I find this dryer really good for blow drying and I can create plenty of volume with it. It leaves my hair feeling silky and soft, frizz and static free without drying it out. It feels the same as it does straight out of the salon.

GHD… Great Hair Day!

I have finally bought a ghd IV styler!! In the past, the only time I let one of these babies near my hair was at the hairdressers. The reason being that I didn’t want to fall in love with it, because then I would have to have one. I thought it would be ok to use at the hairdressers because your hair always looks great after your hairdresser has been playing with it anyway. It wasn’t ok though and pretty soon I had to have one, in fact I needed one! Now that I have my ghd – I love it – it is amazing – I am obsessed – I would probably die without it.

No, I haven’t been slow with the program this time, it was just one of those things that I never thought I could have. When would I have a spare $300 to buy a hair straightener? I am the type of person that will spend their last $20 on a nail polish, so I resigned myself to the fact a long time ago that I am not a saver and I would probably never own a ghd. However, I did manage to scrimp away a few bucks every week to put towards my very own ghd. To avoid spending my money on useless but absolutely neccessary essentials, obviously, I handed over my hard-earned cash to my husband for safe keeping. He was ordered that under no circumstances was he to give it back to me, no matter what I said, until I had enough to purchase my ghd. Even if there was a sale at Mimco or Mecca or Wittner! (Damn, what was I thinking?). If Chanel ever had a sale though, that would be a totally different story! My lovely husband did help me out though (quite a lot actually, after I started saving) with my wonderful purchase – thanks! I told him that he can use it any time he likes! xo

I thought that my last hair straightener was pretty good – until I got my ghd. Did I mention I have a ghd? After using my… ghd… my hair has never been healthier. I don’t know how this fabulous creation does it but when I straighten my hair it actually makes it look and feel healthy and glossy from the roots to the ends. The ends don’t look damaged and my hair doesn’t look dead anymore, it has a gorgeous shine to it. I’m not just saying that either to justify my purchase, it really is that amazing.

The ghd IV Mini Styler A$279.00 – Ideal for short hair, men’s hair, tight curls, flicks and fringes.

The ghd IV Styler A$299.00 – This is the ultimate all-rounder. It is extremely versatile and perfect for straightening, curling, flicking, twisting, movement volume and styling any way you want. It is also great for any hair length.

The ghd IV Salon Styler A$299.00 –  Great for long and thick hair. Creates larger and softer curls.

All these stylers feature:
– New rounder barrel which makes it easier to create perfect curls, waves, flicks or perfectly straight hair.
– Safety Feature: Built in sleep mode that let’s you rest easy. It will turn off automatically if left unattended for 30 minutes.
– Universal voltage so you can travel anywhere with it.
– Digital technology controls the temperature more quickly.
– Advanced ceramic heaters and aluminium plates for smooth and static free shine.
– Heats up and is ready to go in seconds.
– 2 year warranty.

Ghd have a new limited edition colour collection in the ghd IV styler range. So you can make a statement not only with your hair but also with your styler. They are A$309.00. Expensive yes, but worth every dime.

Which colour are you? Are you Red Lust, Blue Serenity, Purple Indulgence or Green Envy?

My favourite colour is purple and I certainly like to indulge, obviously! So the purple indulgence ghd was a perfect match for me.
The limited edition ghd IV Styler in the colour of your choice also comes with a quilted heat-resistant styler pouch and a protective case.

Make sure you visit the ghd website to buy yourself one online or search the nearest salon to you. This is one thing I wouldn’t buy on eBay or at any other site apart from the ghd site. There are so many copies going around, I wouldn’t want to get ripped off. 

Photoshop Me!

I have been playing around with photos of myself on my iPhone over the weekend. I am now obsessed with FaceFinish, iQuikSplash and PS Mobile.
These apps on iTunes beautify, colourfy and are totally fun!

The photo quality is a little lost in translation, but check these out:

I also had a play with photos of my friends and will post these once I get their permission!

Pimp my Closet

I have discovered the most amazing application for my iPhone! It’s AH-MAZ-ING! It’s called Stylish Girl and is basically a style planner revolving around the clothes you have in your closet and the clothes you would love to have in your closet. It keeps all your clothes and accessories organised and right at your fingertips anywhere, anytime.

I spent this weekend cleaning out my closet (again!) and throwing out everything I haven’t worn in ages (again!). I have also been taking photos of all my clothes, shoes, handbags, jewellery and accessories for my new online closet and filing it into one of four categories (tops/dresses, bottoms, shoes and accessories) then giving them each a title. There are even categories based on the time of year and if it is dressy or casual. You can create a list of items for your next trip (no more overpacking or leaving anything behind!) or you can mix and match to create amazing outfits or even place items in a wish-list that you might want to splurge on with your next pay-check.
I have too many days where I have ‘nothing to wear’. I can now just scroll through my online closet and never again forget about that awesome top hiding at the back of my draw. I will never again buy something similar to what I already own. It saves time and money.

Stylish Girl iPhone App

I feel just like Cher in Clueless! Beyond excited. If you don’t have an iPhone you could design your own program by taking photo’s and saving them in a separate folder on your phone or computer.

Happy Fashion Days Dolls!

White 16gb iphone – I got one! :)

I got a killer new 16gb iPhone on the weekend. It’s a white one and I am absolutely in love with it! 

I still need to deck it out with a blingy cover, so that is my mission this week. I also need to add all my music to it and think of a good ringtone – so if you have any ideas, let me know!
I can ditch my iPod because I now have an iPod and mobile all in one – handy! 

I have also added heaps of apps including WordPress, Facebook, Twitter, Foxtel and eBay. I am actually writing this post on it now. 

White 16gb iPhone


I know I have been a bit slow on the uptake with the post. I have actually been wanting an iPhone for ages. I finally decided that I couldn’t wait till my contract ran out – like most things I can never just wait for anything. So I had the balance of what I owed from my original contract split into 11 months and added to my new contract – crisis over. There is a solution to every problem! 

I will give you the hot tip – and I don’t give them very often – but do yourself a favour and get on the iPhone. It’s a big call but I don’t think I’ll ever go back. I used to be a die-hard Nokia fan but I have now turned to the iPhone.
