We all have had a bad experience with heating tools and haircare: whether it's burning your scalp or just creating supremely dodgy curls for a night out, it's happened to us all.

Some gals even resort to teaching their boyfriends how to use hair tools to stop themselves from constantly getting burnt, and other gals just give up altogether.

Taming the mane can be tedious, frustrating and just downright PAINFUL. This Christmas, we're hoping to get a gift from Santa which will ultimately stop the problem of tangled brushes and applying aloe vera to our burns.

We have scoured the lands trying to find a tool that allows us to move our heads and hands around without the heat danger, and creates the perfect looks for day and night.

HALLELUIJAH: a new and improved version of the Instyler has just been released, and it just might save your life.

You might remember the original Instyler; in case you've been living under a haircare rock, it's become a huge name by transforming hair into big bouncy waves and straight, sleek locks.

The Instyler Max now comes in three glam colours: purple, black and pink, and we can't decide which one we want more.

Praise the Lord, no more burns. The Instyler Max has a rotating barrel addition which straightens, curls, and adds twice the amount of body to our hair. It works super fast so you won't be spending hours with aches in your neck staring at the mirror. 

Trying to get picture-perfect hair can be tricky at best, re-creating glamorous curls or straight sleek looks from our favourite catwalk shows seems unfairly difficult considering we don't have a personal hairstylist on hand.

We are hoping (nay, praying) that this tool will be the answer to our hair prayers. Think of it like a mini-hairstylist that you can carry around in your bag.

Treat yourself, we are definitely nabbing this in time for our Christmas party.

Grab your new guardian angel of hair at www.instyler.ie for just €99.99, not bad considering it essentially gives you red carpet glamour.



Let's be honest; the world of social media can be a cruel, cruel place.

From cyber bullying to the rise of online trolls, social media platforms play host to a barrage of negative commentary on a daily basis.

Eager to combat this, Instagram's co-founder and CEO, Kevin Systrom, has announced that the company has created tools which the public can use to avoid encountering negativity on their accounts.

"Today, we’re announcing new tools and programs to keep Instagram a safe and positive place for self-expression."

"Since the beginning, we’ve tried to make Instagram a welcoming place for everyone. Our community has grown to 800 million, with 500 million using it every day. It’s more important than ever to strengthen our commitment to safety and kindness," read the organisation's official blog.

According to the the CEO, the platform will be introducing a tool which allows users to block comments from certain people.

Previously, users had the ability to turn off all comments, but the new function allows you to filter comments, and block certain people from having a say on your posts.

"Over time, we’ve launched a number of tools to help you manage the comments experience, and today we’re introducing more," the blog continued.

"Starting today, if your account is public, you’ll see a new way to choose who can comment on your posts — from everyone to just groups of people, like people you follow or your followers.".

"Also, whether your account is public or private, you’ll be able to block other accounts from commenting on your posts. In June, we launched a filter to block certain offensive comments in English, today we are expanding this filter to Arabic, French, German and Portuguese."

" The filter will improve over time, enabling the community’s experience of sharing to improve as well."

We love this.


A new online tool developed by The Food Safety Authority of Ireland will allow Irish food businesses to calculate the calorie content in their menus.

MenuCal is the first such tool of it’s kind in Europe and it seems other countries may follow suit.

It will allow Irish restaurants and other food businesses to display the amount of calories in each of their dishes for their customer’s awareness.

However, the plan has struck some controversy with the Restaurant Association of Ireland who claim that it could cost the industry up to €5,000 a year.

The Minister for Health, James Reilly, has said there are no plans to make the display of calorie content in menus compulsory for restaurants as of yet.

Would you prefer to know the calorie content of the dish you have ordered in a restaurant?
