It might be too soon to talk about my birthday (it's 2 months away) but the other day my dad asked me out of the blue, what I wanted for my birthday. When he asked I actually had nothing in particular in mind and it was only after when I gave it more thought, I thought about the beauty of owning a ghd. I am aware that I don't HAVE to own a straightener with a hefty cost but I do need a new straightener anyway! Might as well invest in a really good one, ay ;) ? I'm actually fine with any type, just as long as it's made by a well-known, trustworthy brand.
So here is the press release and small annotations I make here and there are in blue.
Introducing the new ghd Scarlet Collection limited edition
“Mirror, Mirror on the wall,
ghd Scarlet makes you the fiercest of them all”
The gorgeous Katy Perry!
I think this is the first time that I've seen a celebrity endorse ghd. Please correct me if I'm wrong...
World leading professional hair styling brand ghd introduces the ultimate gift – the ghd Scarlet Collection. This new limited edition collection sees the ghd Gold Classic styler transformed with opulent red accents in a celebration of 1920s glamour and glitz - one of this winter’s most enchanting and alluring trends.
Inspired by the revelry and glamour of the roaring 20s, the slick new styler offers a dramatic twist on this most alluring of decades and is available in two luxurious art deco styled gift set options.
To launch the collection, Katy Perry, face of ghd and the epitome of modern style and fashion has been given a ‘20s make over bringing to life the decadence and sophistication of the time. Katy is immortalised as a mystical Snow White for the Scarlet Collection campaign, shot by world renowned photographer David LaChapelle.
The limited editions are presented in two luxury art deco indulgent gift set options, both available for a limited time. The Scarlet Collection includes a gorgeous heat resistant red satin styler roll bag, perfectly encasing the limited edition red plated stylers, along with 2 sectioning clips and protective plate guard.
Ideal for girls on the go, the Scarlet Collection Deluxe also features a compact ghd travel hair dryer and styler clutch bag, enclosed in a deep red vanity case – making it the most enviable present to give and receive this season. Perhaps it could be something for Valentine’s day?

I honestly don't think that I would be lucky enough to be gifted a ghd in this collection or just one at all but if I ever do get one, I would definitely review it so that you can be informed about whether or not it's worth it. But after seeing these pictures and reading the press release, I have become more motivated to save up for one - possibly in the near future :)
If anyone does own a ghd,
Questjen of the week:
Thoughts on ghd hair straighteners, yay or nay?
If you don't own one, would you want one? Or are you happy to own a different brand?
My answer: I don't own one but I'd love to!
I've owned 3 hair straighteners, all different brands and two of them stopped working. Not sure if it was just my fault of if they were actually faulty (perhaps I had bad luck). My third still works but isn't good for curling hair :( Hopefully a ghd makes a good 2-in-1 and won't fail on me like my previous?
