Curvy Girl OOTD 24!

Hello My Lovelies

With the wonderful weather we've been experiencing here in the U.K it seemed silly to not get out and discover parts of my Island and obviously I couldn't resist getting a few shots even with my lily white legs out on show for the first time this year!

First stop whilst pootling along in the car I spotted this cool graffiti on the side of a house that I had to stop and have a quick pose. The dress I'm wearing is from Peacocks a couple of years ago-it's so light weight and just right for a warm day.

Next it was along to an old house, they had just had a wedding there the night before so it was lovely to see it all set up for an event. My denim jacket is a charity shop find for £3 and my sandals are my old faithful's from last summer that I picked up in Marks and Spencer and are probably the most comfortable shoes I wear when its hot.

Last stop was to the beach for ice cream and a walk along the seafront. My bag is my go to from Gucci and sunglasses are Rayban Erika's.

How did you spend the weekend? Let me know in the comments or on twitter @steaders83.

Till next time,

A day at Chelsea Flower Show!

Hello My Lovelies

A couple of weeks ago I went to my first ever Chelsea Flower Show after years of admiring on TV and social media. I went along with family members who all decided they would like to go on the last day of the show as this is when many of the plants are sold- my mum who is an avid gardener really wanted to the opportunity to buy some flowers. 
*Apologies in advance for all of the photographs but they are just too pretty not to share!  

As we were getting to London so early and spending all day looking around the gardens I booked us in to have breakfast at Bronte where I had been last Christmas and really enjoyed.
It was then time to hop on the tube and take a walk along the Kings Road (literally my favourite place in all of London!) it was a really short walk to the entrance & then it became apparent how big and busy the event really is!

If I counted them correctly I believe that there was eight show gardens; I actually expected more and for them to be all in one area, or that it would be really obvious but I found it really tricky to navigate and also to have a proper look at each one due to the sheer volume of visitors.

The artisan exhibitors were pretty amazing you could really see how much time, care and love they had given to each of their displays.




I found the amount of sellers a bit much if I'm being honest- I felt it was more about selling you stuff then actually about all of the pretty gardens you see on the TV and what I actually expected from the show. It was a real experience to go to the Chelsea Flower Show but on reflection I wish we had bought tickets for the members only day where I expect it would of been more chilled.  



Have you ever been to the Chelsea Flower Show before? What did you think? Let me know in the comments!

New In: Festival Essentials with Compeed!

Hello My Lovelies

Festival season and summer sandal weather is almost upon us and we all know how much walking we can do during that time! So the amazing products from Compeed have arrived just in time for my visit to the Isle of Wight Festival this weekend!

I have never tried any products from Compeed before but after a weekend of walking around in new sandals I've already given the blister plasters a go. The plasters are clear which is great when you have strappy shoes on and don't want a big ugly normal plaster on your ankles so are super discreet they also protect from rubbing thanks to the advanced plaster profile. I find that when I wear just a plaster it will fall off within a couple of hours but with Compeed they stay on average for 12 hours or longer-which is perfect for hours upon hours on a festival site.

In the Holly Fulton designed pack are five plasters and come in a handy plastic case small enough for handbags and over night bags. They cost £4.99 and if you're lucky you can pick them up on offer from Boots and Superdrug.

The cracked heel over night cream has been preparing my feet for all of the walking I'll be doing this weekend. I added a layer of the cream just before bed and then added cotton socks to protect them and found that my heels were much smoother the following morning. The cream contains a unique blend of Urea and Lactic Acid and intensively moisturises to improve the appearance of cracked heels while you sleep, which is exactly what it did.
I know that the heel cream is going to be a life saver come Sunday night and I'm home from being on my feet all weekend.

Are you off to any festivals this year? Will you have Compeed in your bag for emergencies? Let me know in the comments or pop along and check out my Instagram at @wonderfulworldblog.

New In: Mandara Spa-Oriental Retreat!

Hello My Lovelies

The lovely lot over at Mandara Spa sent me some gorgeous products from their new range Oriental Retreat- I love all of the products from the brand so I'm always really excited when a new scent arrives.

My stand out products are the Bath Milk and Bath Soap Petals as I do love relaxing in a bath a couple of times a week and both of these products are an utter treat to use in a hot bath at the end of a long day. The scent is cedarwood and sweet orange with orange being one of my most favourite fragrances in bath and shower items. It's a perfect blend of woody and citrus notes which is perfect for this time of year as we begin to hit the summer months.

Both the bath milk and bath soap petals are infused with conditioning starflower oil, indulgent Oriental orchid extract, moisturising sweet almond oil and fragrant cedarwood oil, sweet orange and cumin which leaves my skin feeling beautifully soft and moisturised. The entire collection is free from parabens, microbeads, mineral oils, SLES and SLS.

This range is so affordable yet the packaging screams luxury, they make the best presents for family and friends. You can pick up the whole range plus more from Sainsbury's with bath milk costing £7 and the bath soap petals £4 which is an utter bargain for a pamper evening this Summer!

Have you tried anything from Mandara Spa? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.

The Youtuber's made me buy it-Fashion Edition!

Hello My Lovelies

Youtuber's and bloggers are super influencers, I always recommend products to friends and family and also here on my blog and I wonder how often do people take those recommendations and buy the products? I too love to see what other bloggers are purchasing and on occasion go and buy some of my favourite items.

I recently saw this belt on Fleur De Force's Coachella vlog- a western style leather belt from Topshop. I had been looking for a new belt for some time and when I saw Fleur wearing hers I knew I had to have it. 
Also from Topshop and seen on Hannah Gale's Instagram are these wooden and suede block heel sandals. I really didn't need another pair of shoes but Hannah had styled them so effortlessly that I knew they would look great this summer with really simply outfits. The heel height is just right for someone like me that literally can't walk in anything other flat shoes!! 

I can't say one particular blogger or Youtuber influenced me to purchase this jumper as I saw it across social media but the pretty Spring pink shade and comfy style is perfect for lounging around or I'll wear my to my dance classes. It was £5 in Primark which is an utter bargain!!

Finally this t-shirt was spotted on Tanya Burr's video's and social media. I picked this up in New Look which was actually part of a pj set. I wear the bottoms to bed and wear the top with denim skirts and boots on the weekends. I love the text but just wish the date was 1983 and not 1993 as this was the year I was born. It's a really light material so will be fab to wear in the warmer months coming up (well hopefully!) 

What have your favourite youtuber's inspired you to buy? Let me know in the comments or on my Instagram at wonderfulworldblog.

Empties 19!

Hello My Lovelies

I'm back with another empties and all of the goodies that I've actually been able to finish this past month.
First up is a new product to my stash Superdrug's Active shampoo which removes chlorine and salt so perfect for the next few month's when I spend any free time in the pool or on the beach- after using this tube up I've already purchased another.
Next is L'Oreal's shampoo/conditioner- I bought it on a whim wanting to see how a conditioner could also act as a shampoo and whilst it was a nice product to try it wasn't amazing. I felt it dried out my hair so I had to use a hair oil or a pre hair mask. The bottle is really big though so great value!
COLAB is my holy grail dry shampoo- I couldn't live without this brand, if you haven't tried any of their products do it today.

L'Oreal face wipes in the fine flowers scent were also another new product I saw when I was walking around Boots- I would definitely buy them again as they were super cleansing.
From Bath and Body Works I've just finished using the warm brown sugar body spray a sweet winter scent. I used this every day for a good couple of months to finish it up as I didn't want to leave it in my cupboard half used till next Winter.
The final two products are items that I always repurchase as soon as I know they are almost used up. A No7 eyebrow pencil which is perfect for every day use and lasts all day, which is rare for a drugstore pencil and Nivea Q10 pore refining day cream which is by far the best face cream I've used for some time. It's not too rich and a little goes a long way- I always pick this up on offer in Superdrug.

What have been your most used products? Let me know in the comments or via twitter @steaders83.

Curvy Girl OOTD 23: Birthday Edition!

Hello My Lovelies

Last month I celebrated my 34th Birthday, I think it's the first one I've not actually cried on since turning 30 and I had the best day (which I've previously blogged about). Before I went for lunch my sister and I found this pretty little field filled with rape seed and got a few shots.

My entire outfit is from New Look other than my accessories- I tend to find a few bits in New Look every now again that I love and then I won't find anything again for absolutely ages.

The skirt is a black denim with fraying and so comfortable to wear-some of my skirts I'm constantly pulling down but not this one. My jumper is a perfect light pink, I'm really into pink items and when I tried this on in my local shop I knew it would look great with my denim skirt. The jumper also has a really unique cut out pattern that runs along the top. 

My leggings and boots are staples from Sainsbury's and my bag my new go to when I don't need to take much out is my YSL Dylan. As I've said in a previous OOTD the boots have the slightest block heel which make them comfortable to wear and look great with skirts, jeans and dresses so they literally haven't been off my feet in months. Finally my sunglasses are from Ray-Ban and remind me of styles from the 1930's.

What are your favourite items of clothing or brands at the moment? Make sure you leave me a comment or check out my Instagram at wonderfulworldblog

Product of the Month-May 2017!

Hello My Lovelies

I've not written a product of the month for so long- but I've been loving the Urban Decay all nighter setting spray for months and couldn't resist 'bigging' it up here on my blog!

Firstly how did I live without this product for so long?? Why didn't somebody tell me that I needed it in my makeup stash and then frog march me to my nearest stockist?

I've been using the Urban Decay all nighter makeup setting spray for just over a year after picking up one of the mini bottles in Sephora. Since that trip to Sephora I have been obsessed with using this little gem to set my makeup on days when I really need it to last. Before UD setting spray I never really saw the point of using anything other than powder to set my makeup but this is a game changer. I always end up with a greasy t-zone and the spray really does keep the shine at bay for hours without clogging my pores and makes my finished look pretty much flawless.

You can pick up a 118ml bottle of the spray for £23.50 or a 30ml travel size for £10- whilst to me that is a little pricey it is so worth the price and especially if you can get a discount code.

Have you tried the Urban Decay setting sprays before- let me know your thoughts in the comments or via twitter @steaders83.

Copenhagen Haul!

Hello My Lovelies

When I go on little trips I don't tend to go shopping but it was too tempting to not go into a few shops and pick up a few bits whilst away on my mini break.

First up was Sephora for a couple of face masks, I used these for the first time last year when I went to Las Vegas. Whilst they are a little pricey I knew I wanted some more the next time I went to a Sephora. I also grabbed some face wipes for the first time which are amazing- one side of the wipe is rough and is great for exfoliating and the other super smooth and perfect for cleansing. 

Next up I went and had a look in Victoria's Secret- a couple of years ago I would never of even looked at any of their items but now I've lost some weight I know that a lot of their clothes and in particular their underwear will now fit my curvy bottom! I couldn't resist these two pairs, I especially love the VS ones as these are my initials. I can't wait to be going to New York at the end of the year and have the chance to shop in bigger Victoria's Secret and Sephora.

Before we hopped on the plane I went into Accessorize in duty free and picked up a new sunglasses case with the cutest cactus print and some hoop earrings that I've wanted to repurchase for ages after loosing my last pair.

Finally I picked up two magnets from Copenhagen and Malmo to add to my ever growing collection. Here's to my next trip so I can add some more!

Where was the last place you visited- make sure you share with me in the comments!

What I got for my Birthday 2017!

Hello My Lovelies

Last month was my Birthday- For the first time in a long time I decided to take the day off and I spent it by having a lovely lay in and then going for lunch. In today's post I wanted to share as I always do what I got for my birthday, I was absolutely spoilt with some lovely gifts.

My sister gifted me this super colourful quilt covered in fried eggs which I think came from Primark- on the reverse side its grey (which matches my wall) and has bacon and toast all over it. I love how vibrant this is and it literally makes me smile every time I go into my room.

My sister also bought me these sausage dog pj's from Matalan, she knows that I really want to have a sausage dog in the future and again the orange colour is so bright and summery that I can't wait to wear them.

My parents bought me a voucher for a back massage as in the past year I try to treat myself to one a month and also my favourite chocolate a chocolate orange. They also gave me some cash towards my most recent bag purchase my YSL Dylan.

With a few presents still to come from people I haven't seen I was truly treated so thank you to all of those that wished me a happy birthday.

Till text time,

Copenhagen & Malmo Highlights!

Hello My lovelies

My Easter weekend was spent in Denmark and Sweden exploring the cities of Copenhagen and Malmo. It was a fun weekend full of laughs and seeing new things so read on to see my highlights!

On Easter Saturday we spent the day hopping on and off of the buses going around the city as it was torrential rain and freezing cold! Sadly the bus had no heating so we sat on a cold bus all day which wasn't the most fun thing I've ever done. However it was great to visit the beautiful coloured buildings that I had admired for years and pop into a cafĂ© for a hot drink.   

We then went along to visit the Little Mermaid based on the fairy tale of the same name by Danish author Hans Christian Andersen. I was really shocked to see how small she is- I was expecting a larger sculpture. It was a flying trip down to the waters edge as the temperature was hitting zero at this point. 

Then it was on to town for some much needed hot food and a walk around the many shops. We couldn't resist picking up some churros covered in nutella and chopped nuts as we spent the rest of the afternoon exploring!

On Easter Sunday we took the train over the bridge from Copenhagen to Malmo Sweden- it takes roughly an hour on the way there and 30 minutes coming back and costs £20 for a return ticket (don't forget your passport!) Malmo is Sweden's third largest city and compared to Copenhagen felt cleaner, prettier older style architecture and bigger spaces to walk and explore.

Never having been to Sweden I wasn't sure what to expect but I loved my first adventure and now can't wait to book a mini trip to Stockholm. We only had a couple of hours so we walked mainly around the main square and grabbed some late lunch to take back to the train with us.

Though it was a flying visit to both Denmark and Sweden I felt that I got a good vibe for each country and I now know that whilst Denmark was fun its Sweden that I want to visit in more detail.

Make sure you check out my recent outfit of the day which was meant to be shot in Denmark but had to be abandoned!

Have you visited either cities before? I would love to hear what you thought- so please do leave me a comment or visit my Instagram wonderfulworldblog or twitter @steaders83.

Curvy Girl OOTD 22: What should of been the Copenhagen Edition!

Hello My Lovelies

As you all know by now especially if you follow my Instagram (wonderfulworldblog) you'll know that I spent Easter weekend away in Denmark and Sweden spending a day in Copenhagen and a day in Malmo. Whilst the trip was fab, I love visiting new places it rained the whole time we were there which meant my lovely outfit of the day post had to be abandoned. Now I'm back in the U.K I didn't want my dress not be shared and so I took to the streets of my area to get a few shots and how beautiful is the blossom!!

This is has to be one of my favourite OOTD's that I've done recently as I love the whole look and the amazing photograph's my sister took of me. So now for where the items are all from....
My dress is a recent purchase from Topshop, I'm so chuffed that with the weight I've lost over the last couple of years I'm starting to be able to pick and choose where I pick up my clothes. This dress with a navy and white floral pattern wasn't cheap at £32 but it's one that I will get lots of wear out of especially during Spring and then Autumn.
My jean jacket I picked up in a charity shop for £3 after searching for the right fit and colour I almost paid full price till I spotted this one!

My boots are ones that I've worn in a previous OOTD and come from Sainsbury's. They are are so comfy that I've worn them every day for a good couple of months now-I'm actually a little sad that it will soon be time to put them away till Autumn.
My sunglasses are from TK Maxx and were an utter bargain at £20.00- I've not had a huge glamorous pair before and they have fast become a favourite of mine!

Finally my bag is from Saint Laurent which I treated myself to just before Christmas and knew would be perfect for the warmer months. Expect to see it a lot on my Instagram and blog over the coming weeks.


Let me know if you would like to see a what's in my bag post! What are your current go to clothes? Let me know in the comments or on Instagram at @wonderfulworldblog!

New In: Soap & Glory Beauty Flash Pack!

Hello My Lovelies

I just wanted to pop this post up ASAP to let you all know that Soap and Glory have a gift with purchase now until 9th May. The Beauty Flash pack has three full size products and has a combined value of £26.50!

So I hear you cry what's inside this little box of fabulousness? Well! It includes the uh-mazing Thick & Fast HD Mascara a 7-sided fan flare-180 brush which gives the wearer volume and intensity! 

A Supercat black eyeliner pen and a Sexy Mother Pucker XL Extreme Plump which I personally can't wait to try as it gives collagen lip shine and the visivolume gives immediate effect lip filler- which personally my lips are calling out for!

The best part about this crazy deal is that you only have to spend £14 in a single transaction on any Soap and Glory cosmetics in Boots stores or on their website.
If you can't stop yourself spending more than £14 then I would definitely be picking up an extra set as a gift for a friend or maybe even my sister if she's lucky!

Have you treated yourself to the deal of the century from Soap and Glory yet? What are your favourite products from the brand? Make sure you share all of your thoughts with me in the comments or on Instagram at wonderfulworldblog.

New In: Personalised Vaseline Tins!

Hello My Lovelies

I've been blogging for four years and in that time I've banged on about Vaseline over and over again- it's been a bit of a beauty obsession even before I was into beauty. My mum was the instigator, from a really small age my mum always had a tub of it with her and would pop it on my lips at every opportunity so as you can guess I've carried on the tradition of always carrying a tin with me. 
Vaseline have now released the most epic product for fans like me in the form of a personalised tin! Personalisation seems to be the hot new trend and anything that has my name across it is a winner. It's the perfect gift for everyone whether it be your best friend; boyfriend or in my case my mum, it's bound to go down a treat!   

As you would expect with Vaseline Lip Therapy it instantly softens and soothes while protecting your lips against environmental exposure. Over the years I've tried many products but I'm always drawn back to Vaseline as it's a brand I trust to be non-irritating, non-sticky and to give me highly shiny, glossy lips and I think always will.

The amazing personalised tins from Vaseline are available from personalised-tin.vaseline.co.uk for a limited time and cost £2.99 plus P&P. 

Have you succumbed to Vaseline's new tins- if so be sure to let me know in the comments!

Clay Pigeon Shooting Experience

Hello My Lovelies

This past weekend was the birthday of an old friend of mine- she invited a group of all of her friends along for the day to go clay pigeon shooting and then have some lunch all at the local farm park. It was a beautiful sunny day and perfect for standing in a field learning a new skill!

I have never held a gun not alone used a gun before so I was pretty nervous going up to the first stand. Our teacher was super patient and put the gun in the right place on the shoulder and telling you where to put your face so you can see down the barrel of the gun. He also told us where we needed to be aiming for before giving us a chance to do a practice shot without pulling the trigger and then it was time to take the safety catch off and shout "pull!"

The first time went by in a bit of a blur and I couldn't really remember if I had actually shot the target but after a couple of goes the adrenaline coursing through my body calmed down and I was able to concentrate on aiming. Our package consisted of 35 clays so on this first round we shot at 10 and I hit 2 with the clays coming towards us.
On the second round they were going away from us and again I hit just three....By end of the third round which was by the far hardest with the clay coming from behind two bales of hay I found that maybe as a left hander I should of tried shooting on my left and not on my right (though it does feel much more natural to put the gun on my right.)

So on the last five shots which consisted of the clay rolling across the floor (like a bunny) I tried my left shoulder and I had a much better success rate- I look forward to going back later this year to practise on my left and seeing if I can hit more targets. I definitely think that this is a sport that takes lots of practise (unless you're the birthday girl and only miss 7- a pure natural for sure!)
It was then time to have a wander around the park looking at all of the locally designed cows which were amazing. We then went into the restaurant for burgers and chips to discuss how well we thought we had done and if we would come back again.
I loved the experience even after waking up today with my shoulders/armpits in agony, I'm not going to lie it was a struggle to get dressed this morning but that wouldn't put me off going and giving it another try.
Have you ever tried clay pigeon shooting before or something similar? I would love to hear your thoughts so make sure you leave me a comment or check out more photos from my day out on my Instagram @wonderfulworldblog.

New In: Avon Nailwear Pro+ Birthstone Polishes

Hello My Lovelies

Who doesn't love trying to find the perfect nail polish colour- I'm always on the lookout for the perfect shade and one that doesn't chip after two minutes of wearing it. I think I may well have found a range from Avon that meets my high criteria!

Birthstone nail polish is now a thing thanks to Avon- 12 colours for every month of the year including an emerald green for May birthdays, sapphire blue for September and come in a variety of textures, including pearls, shimmers and high density glitters. Each polish is the perfect shade for the month you were born in, or if you're like me you might just want all of them. 

I have the colours Aquamarine for March which is a beautiful matte spring pale blue, Ruby for July and Topaz a purple/blue shimmer for December. They were so easy to apply and took a quick two coat application to achieve the colour below.

My favourite colour of the three has to be the vibrant ruby- no chipping for roughly 5 days and really shiny with a basic drugstore topcoat. Priced at £6 each at www.avon.uk.com or your local representative they make the perfect all year round polishes to share with friends and family!

Have you tried these polishes yet or do you have any from Avon? Make sure you share your thoughts with me here on Instagram at wonderfulworldblog.

New In: Tigi Bed Head Queen Beach Salt Infused Texture Spray!

Hello My Lovelies

I've lived by the sea for the past 21 years and I've always wanted to have surfer chick hair for as long as I can remember. I have frizzy hair at worst and curly hair at best- never beach hair! My favourite hair brand Tigi have just released a beach salt infused texture spray so my dream of having said hair might just be a reality!

Queen Beach is a brand new gel mist that is quick drying on styled hair, is non crispy (my favourite part!) and creates 24 hours of beachy textured surfer girl hair.
I applied it to damp hair and made sure to spray it all over my hair from the roots down to the ends. I then gave it a bit of a scrunch and then let my hair dry naturally. The end result was really subtle natural waves and high shine that really did look like I had been chilling down on one of my island beaches for the day. 

Queen Beach incorporates Balinese sea salt which is best known for its rich mineral content and marine algae to stop hair drying out. I can't wait for the Summer months to be upon us as I can see this being a staple in my hair care routine. Queen Beach also protects hair from the harsh elements of the hot climate! A 100ml bottle costs £16.25 which is a small price to pay to look like a gorgeous mermaid. #keepbeachin

Empties Number 18!

Hello My Lovelies

I'm here with another empties post- I seem to using up so many products recently. On average it can take me months to use even the smallest product up but I've recently made a bit of a promise that I will try not to buy any more beauty products until I've used up the huge stash I already own! Lets see how that long lasts...

First up is a Bath and Body Works foaming hand wash that I bought online for a silly (ridiculous) price but I love foaming hand washes and B&B have such great scents that I couldn't resist! I will be buying some more of the hand washes from the brand but not till October when I go back to America and I can stock up.

Next up is the So..? body spray in the scent watermelon- it was a lovely fresh mist, I've not repurchased anymore as I have a huge stash to get through but I definitely will be trying more from the range later in the year.

Another body spray I've recently finished after two years, yes two years! Is the Victoria's Secret Victoria body spray-I picked this up when I was going to Iceland the first time in duty free and having never had anything from the brand went for a body mist. I can't wait to pop into Victoria's Secret when I go the U.S at the end of the year as I'll be stocking up and its much cheaper.

My new ultimate face cream comes from Nivea and is their Q10 pore refining day cream a super rich but refreshingly light face cream that works well with my fairly greasy but sensitive skin. I've used up a couple pots of the creams and I have to say for now I don't intend to use anything else.

The Garnier moisture bomb tissue mask was a great mask to try especially as I love trying new face masks/face wipes. It was super slimy and was a bit tricky to open and place on my face but at £1 it's an utter bargain and I'll be picking up another one of these once I've worked through my stash.

Finally is a Bath and Body Works Iced Pear Margarita body spray a gorgeous summer scent from the brand that literally lasts all day- these sprays are such a good price as you can usually get them on offer in the States and again this will be another item making its way into my suitcase when I visit.

What have you been using recently? Let me know in the comments or tweet me @steaders83.

Currently Loving Hair Edition!

Hello My Lovelies

I've recently treated myself a new pair of curling tongs after having my old pair for years. I decided to go with the GHD soft curling tong and it's pretty amazing. I'm currently using the best products to help keep my hair looking super smooth and shiny and I wanted you all to see them!

First up is the Tigi S Factor shampoo and conditioner- as you all know I love this brand anyway so it was a no brainer that it would find its way into this post. I always find that it cleans my hair perfectly and leaves it feeling so soft but without being fluffy and fly away. A small amount goes a long way, I've had these sitting in my shower for a good month or so and they are still going strong. The scent isn't over powering which is fab and the conditioner is lovely and thick but easy enough to apply and wash out.

Next is a hair oil from Josh Wood that I received in my Marks & Spencer advent calendar. I've never been a fan of oils for hair or body I hate the greasy feeling and it never seems to sink in no matter what I do, but the Josh Wood hair oil is something else! I love using a small amount from the applicator (once or twice a week) and adding it to the ends of my hair. It really helps to style my hair and is by far the only product that will make my hair feel truly healthy after use.  

Finally is my foldable travel Wet Brush that my sister bought me for Christmas and that I use most days and obviously its great for throwing in my bag when I go away as its' so small and compact. The Wet Brush is the only brand of my brush I use now- I have an original one in my drawer too. The bristles are really soft and never drag through my hair and I love that even on their travel version it has a handle, I couldn't get my head around not having one on previous branded brushes.
