A little help from those who have moved to wordpress.org please!

HI All,

So I’ve just moved to wordpress.org though I’m posting on my wordpress.com one now. I have a request in at .com for now to move my current subscribers over but I have a few questions so if anyone has made the move and can help I’d be most grateful!

  1. How long does it take them to move my followers?
  2. Can I still be found on the reader when I post on my self hosted site?
  3. Can new wordpress.com readers follow me in the same manner they do now or do they have to sign up by email?(Instead of clicking one button) If so how have you overcome this and what effect has it had on your follower growth?
  4. Will I be better off forgetting wordpress.org and just staying here? I moved so that I can turn it into a business eventually (hopefully) which I can’t do here.

I’d be so grateful for some advice from those who have made the move! Thank you in advance!

We’ve moved!!

Hi All!

To enable us to be bigger and better we’ve had to move. WordPress.com is very limited when you are trying to grow a blog into a business (eventually) and we felt it was time we shipped over to wordpress.org! Please bare with us while we move all you lovely followers over, if you like you can head over and follow us while you are waiting! We can now be found at nakedbeautyblog.com.

I hope you’ll all still support us in this move and enjoy the posts!

Soap & Glory Hand Food Review

1

The most astonishing hand cream ever? You Decide!

This is the question posed on the packaging of the Soap & Glory Hand Food hand cream, right at the top. Who can not accept that challenge? I’d also seen lots of people doing the September Beauty Blog Challenge post about this last week. I couldn’t post about my favourite because I’d run out, sobs! However, this did mean I tried a new hand cream and found a new favourite!

It contains Shea butter, Macadamia oil and Marshmallow, yes Marshmallow. It smells as sweet as it sounds. The function of the Marshmallow is a mystery to me but I love it nonetheless.

I love that this hand cream soaks in really fast but that doesn’t mean you have to keep reapplying it, oh no twice a day is fine! It isn’t greasy but really is super-hydrating. After just a week of using it as and when I remember (about once over the weekend but more during the week) my hands are softer than ever. I’m prone to dry patches and this has battled them right into history in just 7 days.

So in answer to their question, yes it is the most astonishing hand cream ever. It smells great and works even better, what more do you want from a hand cream. I’ve been the envy of the office this week with this delicious smelling formula and I’ll 110% be repurchasing!

Try it: £5, Boots

#SBBC Day 8 – Maintaining Healthy Hair

hair

I was meant to post this yesterday but just didn’t the time, I usually try to have Sunday’s off to spend time with my family and at church etc so I’m doing an extra post today.

These are the products I am currently using to keep my hair healthy, especially as I colour my hair! I’ve also included my top tips.

John Freida Radiant Red Shampoo and Conditioner

I wash my hair every other day to avoid drying it out by over washing. I use this John Freida shampoo and conditioner to prolong my deep red hair colour. It does seem to be helping and it also makes my hair feel incredibly soft and moisturised.

TRESemmè Heat Defence Styling Spray

I heat style my hair so this is perhaps one of my most important items in my hair care regime. I spray it onto damp hair to protect from blow-drying and then straightening. It also contains a UVC filter which protects my hair from the sun and helps to keep it hydrated and stops the sun bleaching the colour from my hair. It smells awesome too.

Guy Kremer Protection Serum

You can never protect your hair too much, I mainly use this to smooth y hair and keep it that way all day but it also protects my hair from the heat styling too. It makes my hair much more manageable to straighten and strengthens it against humid and damp weather.

Top tips

  • Use a wide toothed comb instead of a hair brush.
  • If you have greasy hair use dry shampoo or talken powder between washes you can last an extra day and protect your hair.
  • Use the right shampoo for your hair type this will give the best results.
  • Avoid using hair bands too often; they can damage your hair.
  • Eat healthily and make sure you’re getting all of your vitamins.
  • Avoid heat styling if you can but protect your hair well when you have to do it.
  • Only dye your hair every 6 weeks(minimum) and make use of the weekly conditioner they provide!
