Hot Iron Holster review and giveaway

I’ll be the first to hold my hands up and admit I’m not the tidiest of people- clean yes, but tidy not by a long shot! My bedroom is probably best described as an assault course and since having my hair restyled this has become even worse (and more dangerous) as I now use both a straightener and curling wand each morning then leave them lying around to cool- and trip over, and burn myself on.

Thankfully I was recently contacted by packing sorted who must have some kind of psychic insight about the state of my floor because they offered to send over one of their products, the Holster Products Hot Iron Holster*.

The Hot Iron Holster is a heat resistant (up to 260 degrees celsius) silicon holster designed to safely store your hair straighteners, curling wands and other styling tools whilst heating up, being used and whilst cooling down. You can pretty much use this anywhere as it grips on to any smooth surface. It’s been an absolute saviour in my bedroom and would also be a perfect travel companion as it folds up small and is easily fixed to and removed from surfaces.

The Hot Iron Holster costs £18.99 from and comes in a choice of four colours- pink, white, black and purple.

As well as sending me a Hot Iron Holster to review I’ve also been given a second one to giveaway to one lucky reader. If you fancy getting yourself a bit more organised, not to mention safer then just follow the simple steps below!

This really is a great product and would also make an ideal Christmas present for anyone who uses styling tools on a regular basis!

Good luck, this giveaway is open to UK readers and upon closing I will contact the winner and pass their delivery details on to the PR who will send out the prize.


Giveaway: Win a Rose Gold iPhone SE!

It’s fair to say I haven’t been the greatest blogger lately, both in terms of content and comments/interation with my blogging pals. This makes me even more excited about the competition I’m hosting from today as it gives me a chance to say “Thank You” to those that have stuck by me by giving you the chance to win a Rose Gold iPhone SE courtesy of the guys at Three (which will come with a sim card loaded with £10 of credit)
As I mentioned the other day my phone is soon due an upgrade and this is the model I have my eye on for numerous reasons (not least the colour!) so I’m going to be super envious of whoever wins this beauty! The iPhone SE features a 4-inch Retina display, an A9 chip with 64-bit desktop-class architecture, the Touch ID fingerprint sensor, a 12MP iSight camera, a FaceTime HD camera with Retina Flash, Live Photos, 4G LTE2 and fast Wi-Fi, iOS 9 and iCloud. It’s the same shape as the iPhone 5s but features all of the benefits of iPhone 6s- a real little power pack!
It’s easy to see how this has become such a hit with fashion bloggers everywhere, it’s so pretty it seems almost a shame to cover it with a case (note the almost!) and makes blogging and interacting on social media whilst on the go a breeze. To get your entries in just follow the instructions below and make sure you check out the T&Cs.

Win a Trip to Rome with Jones Bootmaker*


Blogging is giving me a serious case of wanderlust at the moment and some of my favourite posts to read are the ones that showcase the holidays and adventures fellow bloggers have been on. I’m still not sure what my holiday plans (if any) will be but I’m totally going to be entering to win a trip to Rome with Jones Bootmaker and keeping my fingers and toes tightly crossed.

I almost feel like I shouldn’t be sharing this as the more people who enter the lesser my chances, but I’m the generous sort so here’s a brief idea of what is up for grabs…

“We’re giving you the chance to win a luxury European city break to Rome for two, including
flights, transfers, four nights accommodation at a 5* hotel and excursions to: The Colosseum, The Vatican Museums, The Sistine Chapel, St Peter’s Basilica
and The Borghese Gallery and Gardens.

All entrants will receive 10% OFF their next purchase with Jones Bootmaker. You will receive an email qualifying you for the discounts within 24hours of entering.”

Just promise me one thing, if one of you, my lovely blog readers happens to win then please pack me in to your suitcase!


Win an Armani Exchange Watch with Babla’s Jewellers*

I love an excuse to hold a giveaway on the blog and being the watch enthusiast that I am when Babla’s Jewellers got in touch offering up the Jullietta Watch by Armani Exchange to one of my readers I jumped at the chance.
Both Babla’s Jewellers and Armani Exchange are new ones on me; I’d heard of both but never really took much of a detailed browse. Clearly I’ve been living in ignorance as Babla’s stock a huge selection of Armani Exchange watches which offer designer style at an affordable price.
I really love this tan and silver watch and I won’t lie, I’d love to fix it to win my own giveaway (but obviously that would be very, very wrong!). If you’re equally as taken with it as I am then follow the easy steps below and get your chance!

Giveaway open for two weeks from today. Winner will be contacted within 24 hours by myself to arrange your prize. Open to UK readers of this little blog.
