Glam & Style Hair Dryer*

Hi everyone,

Firstly, I hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year! It's been a little while since I last posted on my little blog. I had a little break over Christmas and then poor Darcie went down with tonsillitis (she's all better now). So, I had wanted to get this post up just after Christmas, but it didn't turn out that way. That's why the images on this post are still a little Christmassy. Fear not, they won't be on the next one.

Anyway, I had the Glam & Style hair dryer sent to me a little while ago now. I was so grateful for the opportunity to review this hair dryer as mine was starting to see better days.

So as packaging goes I really quite like it. They haven't over done it but at the same time it's eye catching. The picture above is the front of the box. The picture below is the back of the box. This side gives you the lowdown on the hair dryer. Inside the box you get a little leaflet on the hair dryer.

What will this hair dryer offer you?
  • Up to 2200W drying and styling power (1800W-2200W)
  • A 2 meter cord
  • A hang up loop
  • Cool shot
  • 3 heat settings
  • 2 speed settings
  • A hang up loop
  • A detachable inlet grill to clean the hairs that get into the dryer
  • A DC (direct current) motor
  • Concentrator nozzle for precision styling
  • and a 2 year guarantee.

How do I find using my Glam Style hair dryer?

Well, so far so good. It isn't just me that uses it, my boyfriend uses it when he styles his hair and said it is good. It's light weight so you do feel like you're doing a workout whilst drying your hair. Compared to my last hair dryer its super light weight. It dries my hair and helps my boyfriend style his hair in next to no time.

I love the look of the hair dryer to. I love the little accents of rose gold. I don't mind hair dryers that have crazy patterns (as my last one had) but I like that this has no frills and is sleek and elegant looking.

Overall, for £14.99 on Amazon I think it's a bargain and if you are looking for a hair dryer for yourself or as a gift for someone else, I would recommend this one.

You can find the Glam & Style on Amazon.

Until next time,

Baylis & Harding Christmas gift guide 2017*

Hi everyone,

I hope everyone is having a lovely December so far!

Some people may have already brought all of their Christmas gifts, others maybe half way through and some may be stuck for ideas. This is where I am pretty sure I can help you.

Baylis & Harding have some beautiful gifts that bring affordable luxury into everyone's life. They definitely have something for everyone.

Something for him...

Are you looking for the perfect secret Santa present? Maybe you are looking for the perfect stocking filler? This Baylis & Harding wash bag duo with Citrus and Lime goodies inside could be just what you are after! This would also be perfect for an 'extra' gift. 

This little gift comes with a hair and body wash and a aftershave balm. They are the prefect minis and smell so refreshing! The wash bag is a brilliant size for when he goes on holiday or for any trips away. You can buy this gift on Amazon for an amazing £5.95!

Something for her...

The next couple of gifts are perfect for secret Santa gifts or stocking fillers.

The first is the Baylis & Harding Midnight Fig and Pomegranate body wash. You can buy this on Amazon for just £4! It's the perfect Christmas scent to receive. I have to say the packaging is beautiful on this product, the colour scheme and design is perfect. If I received this I could imagine myself having a nice soak in the bath after the festivities of Christmas day and wash with this.

Another idea for a stocking filler is this cute little bath.

This golden bath comes with a 50ml shower crème and a 30ml body butter. The smell doesn't differ from shower gel to body butter, which is nice as you don't have a mismatch of scents. It is also such an invigorating scent. You can pick this little set up on Amazon for £9.79.

For a teenage girl (or someone into sweet smells)...

Teenagers can sometimes be pretty hard to buy for. The Baylis & Harding Beauticology Carnival treats perfect partners gift set is the perfect sweet treat. I mean, I'm 21 and I love the scent of both products.

This fun set comes with a 250ml tub of 'Sweet caramel popcorn' body butter and a 300ml bottle of 'candy apple' shower gel. I am quite funny with scents of body butters and I was a little worried about the sound of this one. However, when I opened it my first reaction was 'oh wow!' It is just the right amount of sweet for me. However, it could be a little too sweet for someone who doesn't like a strong sweet scent. When applied to the skin it's not as sweet as in the tub, it's actually quite subtle. I find myself lifting my arm to smell it.

Something for Mum...

Before becoming a Mum I used to wonder why these sets were so special. Now, I get it. It's pure bliss when you get to be able to pamper yourself with a lovely gift set. Especially when someone has thought of you and gifted you something to do so with.

This gift set comes 250ml of crème brûlée & cocoa body butter, 300ml of crème brûlée & cocoa refresing body cleanser, a body polisher and it is all presented nicely in a wicker basket that Mum (or whoever the recipient is) to put all of their pamper time goodies in. My favourite in this is the body butter, its so luxurious! You can buy this from Amazon for £16.68.

For the candle lovers...

I was blown away buy the packaging of this candle. Can we just take a second to appreciate how beautiful it is! This is pure Christmas luxury. You could even buy this for yourself as a cute decoration around the house.

Now you may or may not know I have a fear of candles, so I gave this to my Mum to light. Whenever I go past her bedroom, it just smells of Christmas. I am hoping she will bring it to the kitchen to light when she cooks Christmas dinner. This candle comes in at an amazing price of £13.25 and you can buy it from Amazon.

A home wear gift...

I love this Baylis & Harding hand was. Its is the same 'Midnight fid & pomegranate' scent as the body wash above. I feel this one is a little stronger than the body wash but it is not over powering. I love the Christmas design that carries through the Baylis and Harding Christmas range. It is nice that you can add a little bit of Christmas cheer to your bathroom with this had wash. You can buy this Christmas version from either Superdrug or Tesco which is on offer until the 2/01/2018 for £1.50. If you would prefer a bottle without Christmas patterns you can pick one up on Amazon.

Which gift is your favourite?

What Darcie Wore: Belle of the ball

Hi everyone,

Number 3 in the series (go me!) and we had a dress up day. This dress originally came from Disneyworld Florida. Obviously I have never been, so how did I get it? I picked this little beauty (and the beast, see what I did there?) of a dress up from a local Mum2Mum market and it only cost me around £3! Bargain!

So here she is:

Apyy Kids Co- Drink up*

Hi everyone,

So we are at the point in the year now when the little ones are starting to get a little bit restless. you might be trying to think about ways to try and keep them entertained or keep things fresh. Sometimes something little can make a big difference.

What about switching up their drink in their lunchbox?

Appy Kids Co have the perfect juice drinks. They kindly sent me over some of their tropical Minion juice drinks to try out.


They are so tasty. I don't know if you ever get a taste in your mouth, and whatever it is you really want to have it. That's what I kept getting with these. I would get a taste of them in my mouth and I would just have to get one to drink. They were a big hit with my family to.

No only are they so tasty but they are healthy to. They contain Vitamins C, E and A, these all help together to make up a better immune system for little ones. The fruits used are green apple, orange, peach, apricot, banana, mango, passion fruit and stevia.

They also come in cool boxes. Each box has a joke and a spot the difference game. In a standard box you get 5x200ml pouches of drink.

Lunchboxes, box

You can buy Appy Kids Co products online from Ocado and Amazon. You can also find a list of in store stockists here.

These are definitely something that will brighten your little ones lunchbox, especially when they have their favourite character on them.

What do you put in your little ones lunch box?
