ghd Green Peacock Styler.

I straighten my hair almost everyday. My hair is naturally very wavy, almost curly and it frizzes more than it curls or waves. My hair is very long and very thick and I have gone through many hair straighteners. I swear I break two or three a year. I've been using this one for over a month now and it is performing beautifully and showing no signs of wear at all.

If you have to straighten your hair, you might as well use one that is totally hot and stylish, right? I think so, and that is why I use a gold standard in hair straighteners, the ghd Gold Classic styler, but it is styled and colored in a great green peacock shade in a special limited edition. It is called the ghd Green Peacock Styler.

This ghd Green Peacock Styler is amazing.  The super smooth ceramic hair plates glides over hair without ever puling or dragging. It just glides and instantly straightens and smoothes hair.  It even comes complete with a storage bag and heat resistant mat. The mat helps protect surfaces from the high heat of the styler, and this baby gets hot.

What I may be most thankful for is that this styler comes with a two year warranty. I won't have to worry about this baby breaking down any time soon.

The ghd Green Peacock Styler is sold on the ghd website and it sells for $225.00.

One of the biggest trends for summer is bright neon colors. I can easily say that I am completely obsessed with neons and try to accessorize my outfits everyday to include this trend.

What easier way to do this then with your nails?! I went with a bright neon yellow nail color last week, and I'm in love with it. The yellow I choose brightens up all my outfits, and it's perfect for summer. I recommend this to anyone who is looking to follow the neon trend.

The yellow goes perfect with everything, including my iPhone! It just adds that perfect summer touch.

Here are some suggestions of yellow nail colors that are perfect and on trend for the summer.
