Super blow dry

Easy drying and styling? In pink? Tell Mark Hill I am in!

The gorgeous Mark Hill Perfect Blow Dry kit has a gorgeous hot pink 2200W motor hair dryer with a quick cool button to set that glossier finish so it lasts longer. The hair dryer is powerful, quiet ad comfortable to use.

I personally love a nozzle when styling, but everyday quick drying, I tend not to use.

In the box, you get a radial brush, which is pretty in orange and hot pink ombré and helps add add volume and body as it allows for even air-flow, helping reduce dry time!

Also included in the kit is a full size Styling Heat Protection spray. It protects hair against styling heat up to 240 degrees, helping hold the style and leaving hair shinier and smoother. It feels a bit like hair spray but hair is set naturally.

I also got the lovely Mini handbag Heroes containing a mini versions of the Plumping Powder (7g), which helps give volume and texture, the Taming Anti Humidity Spray (50ml), great for keeping fly aways at bay and the Freeze Hold Hairspray (50ml), which is lightweight with strong hold.

On top of products, you get 2 sectioning clips to really style with precision.

Altogether, I feel I have the perfect blow dry arsenal to style – and keep – my hair beautifully.

Mark Hill Perfect blow dry kit reviewThe Mark Hill Perfect Blow Dry kit costs £29.99, which I find great for value for its contents. You can get it from the Mark Hill website and Boots.

And the Mini Handbag Heroes cost £12.99 and was part of the Christmas collection – so handy and you can still get it from their website!

You know the drill, but I’ll say again: this post contains PR samples. This review, however, is based on my experience with the product and reflects my honest opinion on them.

Dani’s Little Book of Fashion: LFW, baby!

lfw_comb - 6This season was a weird one for me. With so much going on in my personal life, I decided to skip LFW AW16 altogether.

lfw_comb - 7I didn’t apply for accreditations, I didn’t request tickets, I didn’t RSVP to the ones I received. Life had been too crazy (and sad – which also justifies the lateness in posting this; I might or not write about it at some point) to fashion week.

I was just to ignore my FOMO and skip it altogether. Enter The Apartment and fabulous blogger Banké to change my mind.

lfw_comb - 3So I picked a day. Had the best time at The LFW Apartment, the brainchild of amazing Abisola (or AbiMarvel, as she is known online), the space if just fantastic. A haven for bloggers to hang out, rest, work and meet brands and other alike.

I can never thank them enough for having me – I got a wonderful blow dry by Mark Hill, stunning nails from Elegant Touch, discovered skincare brad Skin & Tonic London, the beautiful Caravelle NY watches, stationery wonderland kikki.K, got to know more of Urban Outfitter’s home products and was fed wonders from Aubaine, Sugartables London, Starbucks, Voss water, Zeo, Krispy Kreme and Take Eat Easy (which delivered amazing food!).

lfw_comb - 2And this time they have the great guys from Comb (a super cool photo search shopping app) taking lovely street style pictures of us – just book a session and, well, the result speaks for itself.

I took the cat theme (my beloved black Persian Thomas passed away recently, so that was my way of having him round) and ran with it.

The white cat collar shirt is from Miss Patina. I added a simple salopette dress from boohoo, tights from New Look, a cat-ear bowler hat from H&M, Christian Louboutin Pigalle shoes with a satin ribbon around the ankles and topped it off with my Chanel handbag.

Hair was worn down and blue “lipstick” is in fact GloRay eyeliner in Sky Breaker. Nails from Elegant Touch (Hall of Mirrors, the prettiest thing EVER).

lfw_comb - 1For walking around, I wore my trusty Zara boy-ish shoes. I dread the day they are no longer suitable to wear!

Next season I will put all the effort into it. I hope! Until September!
