After how well my last experiences with Garnier products went, I jumped at the chance to try something else from the range! When they offered to send me a bottle of Garnier Fructis Miraculous Oil I was very interested as I am a big fan of hair oils.

With all of the bleaching and damage that I do to my hair, drying it out is a big concern for me so any product which can keep it healthy is very important.

So what is the idea behind the product?

 

10 Lazy Day Hairstyle Tutorials With RY and GHD

I was contacted a little while ago by RY.com.au to try out some of their products and considering my hair obsession we settled on a GHD to play with!

As you guys know by now, I’m trying to make my life a bit better one tiny thing at a time in hopes that all the tiny things will add up to big things and being happier in general. As silly as it sounds, when I look good I feel a lot happier and more motivated.

In my ideal life where I’m so rich that I never have to worry about money or anything other than which beautiful gown I’ll wear that day I think I would spend a large amount of time doing my hair every morning. Unfortunately in real life, time-to-do-my-hair tends to get over run by time-doing-the-washing. So the age old problem: how to look cute without having to spend hours doing it?

So I’m taking on bad hair days with the help of RY and GHD! I came up with 10 hairstyles that can be done in less than 5 minutes, perfect for busy and lazy days!

But before we get into the hairstyles, let’s do a quick review of the GHD 😀

Lottie was totally begging me to straighten out her crimps but I don’t trust her to use hot appliances without supervision.

As you guys probably remember I participated in a Clearasil campaign a few months ago testing out their Daily Clear Vitamins and Extract Range. Part of the campaign involved the creation of an ebook which was aimed at giving Australian girls tips to get the confidence to face the day head on no matter what it throws at them.

Download Blogging In Style Ebook For Free With Selz!

A little while ago I was contacted by a new Australian start up company to trial their service. The basic idea of it is that you can use Selz to create an online shop (or just sell individual items) which you can then embed into your own site or share via social media.

Quick run down:

Selz a platform which allows you to easily sell pretty much anything online. It makes selling to your social network as easy as making a Facebook post, a Tweet or sharing a link.

Selz is a great tool for increasing audience engagement and interaction as its very user friendly, making it easier for you to post offers and items which can be made available locally or internationally

You can sell digital downloads, physical items and share it on social media very easily.

Basically it’s kind of like Ebay/Gumtree but for social media.

I already have an online shop so I thought about how I would use a service like this in a way which would benefit you guys as readers.

Easy answer: give away free things!! 😀

A lot of you might not have been reading for this long but in 2010 I wrote an ebook about blogging. It was 76 pages long and fully illustrated with cute little cartoons. I sold them in my shop at the time and it felt like a huge achievement putting that much work into something!

It’s been 3 years since then and the internet being the way it is, so much has changed so the information in the ebook really needs an update! I have had “update ebook” on my to-do list for a good portion of this year but I keep getting sidetracked doing things like organising the Bergamot shirts etc.

So in the mean time I have decided to give the old version of the ebook away for free. Some of the links might be outdated and the information (and my hair colour) is a little old but there are still some really great tips in there and it’s a good starting point for those of you who are starting your own blogs!

That, and the drawings are pretty damn cute 😉

You can download the ebook for free using the Selz button below! I hope you enjoy it and please look forward to the new version because that’s going to be epic!

My mini review of having used Selz so far:

It took me around 2 minutes to complete the listing for Blogging In Style. Honestly it made me a little frustrated how much time an effort I had spent putting together my full online store because if you’re selling a few items Selz would be so much easier than putting together an entire store, even with shop plugins. I like that it handles digital downloads so simply and I like that if you’re offering something for free customers don’t have to put in a heap of unnecessary information to checkout.

My only slight drawback is that there aren’t many customisation options for the widgets and buttons so if, for example, you wanted to match everything perfectly to your website you would need to maybe create your own buttons which matched your site and then use the links Selz provides rather than just popping in a widget. That said it’s still a very new company so I think things like that will come in time.

The weirdest thing about it that I like is the clean and uncluttered layout. It’s easy to navigate and doesn’t look like it’s full of junk unlike other selling websites (I’m looking at you Gumtree). Overall I’ve enjoyed using it in my test runs so far and I think I will definitely use it for special downloads, freebies, closet clean outs or quickie sales which are just available for people who follow on social media.

Speaking of free things and closet clean outs…

I’ve been thinking of clearing room for new craft projects by giving away some of the old things I’ve made. Would you guys be interested?

Living in an apartment has made me really appreciate space and organisation so I would like some more space so I can make more things and tutorials for the blog. I would be giving the old one of a kind crafts/accessories/clothes/whatever away for free, whoever got them would just need to pay for the postage to send it to them.

Let me know if that’s something you guys would be interested in and if so, is there anything of mine in particular you’d like to see go up on Selz? I can’t promise I’ll put it up but let me know anyway and I’ll see how it goes!

If you guys are interested in that I’ll start listing things on Selz this weekend and post about it on my social media sites, make sure you’re following me on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest so you don’t miss out!

And of course check out Selz if you’re planning on selling things online!
