GHD Unplugged Cordless Hair Straightener Review

From the moment I heard about a cordless GHD hair straightener,  I knew I needed one.  A portable straightener I can take with me and use anywhere, at anytime.. SOLD!  

GHD's Unplugged straightener comes in two colours, black and white.  It's compact and light (at about 20cm in length), making it extremely convenient to carry with you. And don't let it's size deceive you, it's just as powerful as your standard GHD at approximately 180 degrees.  It has high gloss ceramic plates, ensuring your hair is always shining.  It comes with a heat resistant carry case and a USB cord.  It takes about 2 hours to completely charge and has a battery life of about 20 minutes.  It has a battery indicator to let you know when it's low and even beeps for you at 15%. It will also switch off automatically when not in use.  Even better it's flight friendly, so it's your number one travel companion!

I've been using this for about the past month and I honestly have nothing but praise for it.  It leaves my hair super straight and oh so shiny!  I will be taking it everywhere with me.  It's that one product we always knew we needed, and GHD delivered!

Jimmy Choo Beauty Collection

If you're a follower on my Instagram you'll know I love my Jimmy Choo heels..therefore when I heard about their new beauty collection, I couldn't contain my excitement!  Jimmy Choo Beauty includes ten satin finish lipsticks, high gloss nail polishes and six fragrances.  The lipsticks are full coverage in a gold case and feature the JC monogram.  The nail polishes are my personal favourite and a must have addition to my beauty collection. Displayed in glassed bottle and an elongated brush embossed with Jimmy Choo.  The collection is inspired by the confident and daring spirit at the heart of Jimmy Choo.

Milan Fashion Week: Versace Fall 2021

Thanks to Donatella, we finally welcome Gigi Hadid back to runway!  This was her first show since giving birth to daughter Khai.  And yes, she's now a red head!  Gigi was joined alongside her sister Bella, making it the perfect touch to Versace's Fall 2021 collection.  The collection featured a new monogram, La Greca, an updated take on Versace's signatory monogram.  Chunky platform shoes were paired with opaque tights and mini dresses.  Midi skirts paired with cropped tops.  Vinyl trench coats, flares, monogrammed coats, head scarfs and even turtle necks.  The majority of the pieces were dark and neutral toned, but complimented with surprising dashes of bright bold colour.  A very wearable and appropriate post lockdown collection. It's perhaps one of my favourite collections this season!
