Happy Belated Birthday To Me!

March 12, 2012

It was my birthday recently (I say recently, it was a week and a bit ago, but that’s recent enough right?) So I thought I’d do a post about what I got.

Unfortunately I was away down in Oxfordshire for a training course for work the morning of my birthday, so I didn’t get home untill about 5pm, but I was a happy bunny when I did!

These were my two main pressies;

The straighteners are ‘Remington Wet2Straight’ and the hair dryer is the Coriolis Candy Cane edition. For me they were perfect! My current straighteners (Toni & Guy something or others) will turn themselves off randomly when I’m using it, and I’ve had four electric shocks from my hair dryer! I did throw the hair dryer away after the fourth time, don’t worry. (the hairdryer was one I’d had since I was 11 and had ‘Mary-Kate and Ashley’ written down the side of it, so don’t worry there is very minimal chance you and I have the same one!)

The straightners come with a heat-proof carry bag, which will be handy when I pop to my mums or have to go away for training again.

They switch on the body as well as a dial so you’re never using too much heat for your hair. It also came with a little booklet that tells you what kind of heat you need for your hair type/condition.

I’ve used them a few times now and I love them! I won’t go into too much detail about them because I plan on doing a full review and walk through. I just need to find the time to take pictures of me using it!

The hairdryer is just gorgeous! The colour fits me perfectly, My fiancé clearly knows me well. It’s very lightweight but super powerful (My last one used to make my arms ache when I used it, but this doesn’t at all). It has three power settings and three heat settings as well as a cool shot button. I usually just use it on the most powerful and the hottest because it gets the job done (and I’m almost always in a rush) but I know that’s superbad for my hair so I’m going to slow down on that.

It comes with the usual attachments. I can’t say I’ve ever used a diffuser in my life, but I’m going to make a point in using this one!

I love this hairdryer, and I have had no shocks what-so-ever you’ll be glad to hear. The cord is super long too so you’re not stuck next to the socket with it. It’s from Boots I assume (as it had the no7 voucher they are currently giving away with it), so if you’re in need of a new dryer, I’d recommend this one.

I also got a few more bits, like a new chunky-knit cardigan and a hat that’s a birthday cake. I got some money from my family too so I ordered myself a Glossybox and Carmine box along with a few bits from E.L.F Cosmetics. So look out for my reviews on the boxes!

Thank you to my family, Liam’s side of our family and Liam for all of this stuff. I’m so so grateful! Plus I got to finally go home and cuddle with my boy, so it was the perfect day.

Hope everyone has had a nice weekend and Monday wasn’t too harsh on you!

Disclaimer: This is not me boasting, I just wanted to do a short review. If you’re offended by hauls etc I’d advise not following my blog.
