Quick & Easy Holiday/Christmas Hairstyles - ft. ghd arctic gold

It’s that time of year again when there is a lot of holiday parties going on, so we put together two hairstyles using the new Christmas ghd arctic gold collection to give you some inspiration. Ellen shows off a twisted loose curled style using the arctic gold ghd curve creative curl wand and Tara has created a sleek & straight half-updo using the arctic gold ghd V styler. We both also use the arctic gold ghd air professional hairdryer at the start.

We hope you like the video! Don't forget to #hintghd this Christmas and share this video if you have someone that needs a nudge to get you one of these beautiful ghd tools. You can also visit for more hinting ideas and to use the hint-o-meter.

If you'd like to know more about the ghd tools we used we also have a review blog post here where we talk about the collection in more detail :)

Styling Paper Bag Skirts

I don't know if this is actually a good way of styling paper bag style skirts but I did like how this outfit came together. The batman shirt makes me smile whenever I wear it, and I like the way it peeks out when tucked into the skirt. I think because this top is not too form fitting it fits well with the skirt's paper bag waist and keeps the shape of the outfit balance.

The "Tumblr Girl" outfit - Tumblr Fashion

Tumblr is an endless source of inspiration when it comes to fashion and beauty. I have always admired the easy-going relaxed "tumblr girl" style outfit that you no doubt have come across too. I quick google of "tumblr fashion" and you will know what I am talking about. The slouchy tee, oversized knit, high waisted shorts, plaid shirts, ripped denim, sneakers and denim. These are all key elements to creating that tumblr girl outfit. And of course, you can't forget the penny board.

The Perfect Christmas Gift - ghd Arctic Gold Collection

It's officially November, which means Christmas is just around the corner. My friend Eliza sent me a snapchat yesterday with a proud display of all her Christmas shopping completely done, wrapped and ready to go. Is she making you feel bad yet? Well don't worry, today we're officially kicking off the festive posts with the perfect gift idea for your sister, girlfriend or hey, even yourself (it's never too early to start hinting *wink wink*).

Give the gift of great hair this season with the fabulous new limited edition arctic gold collection by ghd. There are eleven different gift sets to choose from to suit any hair style.

The ghd V gold classic styler 
Personally when I think ghd, I think hair straightener. They have the coolest stylers on the block and this limited edition arctic gold colour makes it an even more special gift. The styler heats up in seconds and makes straight hair a breeze. I love how quick I can be with this tool, I can grab big chunks of hair at random and the finished look is still sleek and elegant. It's like Christmas magic! As Tara said when she first saw my hair after I had used it, "It's so smooth and shiny I want to touch it". She then went on to describe it as feeling like cat fur. I guess I will take that as a compliment?

The Packaging
First of all can we take a moment to appreciate this beautiful packaging?? ghd really do think of everything, not only is it pretty but its practical. The roll bags for the styler and curling wand make for easy storage and the detachable, heat resistant mat means no more singed side tables (I think mum is the happiest about that one). I love how they have made the packaging part of the gift itself. Just whack a card on there and you're ready to go.

The ghd curve creative curl wand

The unique shape of this barrel creates some truly beautiful curls. I found this works well on my long locks and it actually holds the curl!! Shock. Horror. I can't remember the last time I managed to have second day curls but this bad boy has got me waking up with hair on point.

While Christmas should be all about the people you are spending time with, I think the act of gift giving is a beautiful tradition. The joy of seeing a loved one open your gift is one of my favourite feelings. Although if your partner or family or generous friend needs a little nudge in the right direction, don't be afraid to drop them a link to this blog post and don't forget to #hintghd this Christmas ;)

DIY Beauty Advent Calendar - 'how to' video tutorial

Last year we made each other beauty advent calendars and everyone went crazy over the video so we thought we would update the calendars and make new ones for 2015. We love the many beauty advent calendars on the market like those from Benefit and The Body Shop Christmas but they aren't really in our student budget. If you want to know what we got each other last year, check out our Christmas haul here. Don't forget to give the video a thumbs up if you liked it and subscribe for more videos.
