karmin g3 salon pro hair styling iron

| karmin g3 salon pro hair styling iron in pink* - $189.95 online |
When this arrived on my door step i almost cried. i have wanted a set of pink straighteners for as long as i can remember, but whilst there is still life in my ghd's i had no reason to get a new set.

what drew me to this set was the list of claims that come alongside them.  the straighteners come in 3 different colours (just in case pink isn't your thing) and claim to use negative ions and infrared heat to remove static and leave you with silky, shiny hair. they also use ion field technology which seals in natural oils.

i have to admit a lot of the problems these straighteners claim to help aren't things i have to face on a daily basis... however whilst using these my hair was very shiny and nice feeling? so that can only be a good thing!

will these replace my ghd's? i'm not so sure. but they are the perfect size to chuck in my bag for a trip away and i know i'll get use out of them. the free shipping from the website it a massive plus (especially as i believe they are sent over from the usa) but it is a bit of a pain having an international plug (you can pick up an adapter on the cheap, or you may have one lying around somewhere.) overall i'd say it's a nice, compact sized tool in a pretty colour. a nice addition to any make-up table.

have you tried karmin? what are your favourite straighteners?

so...? fragrances

| so...? sexy*, so...? eternal*, so...? rock me* fragrances |

so..? fragrances always remind me of my early teenage years. after pe it was this product which formed the overwhelming scent in the changing rooms. i was curious to see if a product i had loved so much all those years ago could still capture my heart and i have to say i was pleasantly surprised!

'so...? sexy' was a scent that i had previously tried a sample of and it's right up my street. it smells sweet and floral but with a little hint of adult. it really makes so...? seem less childish and is something i am happy to chuck in my handbag and carry around.

'so...? eternal' was the only eau do toilette i tried and it's not my favourite.... the initial scent smelt almost medicinal. this did fade but the scent it left was still not one i would reach for. it was slightly less sweet than i would usually go for but was still very overwhelmingly floral. a bit of a disappointment for me but may be better suited to someone else.

'so...? rock me' has to be my favourite of the three! it's a very fruity scent and nice and sweet without being overpowering. the smell just screams summer and it the perfect way to bring me out of my winter gloom!

prices vary depending on where you are buying from but in general they are cheap as chips!

have you tried so...? fragrances before? which is your favourite?

the university curse

somehow i just can't seem to keep up with this blogging malarky when i hit university shores. as usual i've managed to get myself involved in everything and that means very little free time. with the hundreds of amazing products i've got to show on currently on backlog i'm going to have to give myself a bit of a kick up the bum and get back into it all! i may not be posting as regularly as i did over the summer but hopefully it'll be better than once every two months!

big ♥,
