Detox your Skin with Sönd

Wednesday, 18 January 2017

January tends to be a time for new beginnings. New diets: Veganuary and dry January, new gym regimes, new ways in which to change ourselves for the better and make ourselves a better person for 2017. Have you ever considered something such as a skin detox though?
I didn't know you could even detox your skin! The people over at Sönd skin, with the help of Dr Isabel Sharkar, have created videos and a skin detox regime to help explain a skin detox for any of us sensitive skin sufferers to undergo. Because beauty starts from the inside out

New Year, New You: movie challenge

Monday, 16 January 2017

I am one of those people that are very specific about what they will watch when it comes to movies. If it isn't killer related, crime related, horror, or gore then I simply do not want to know! I do love me a good crime thriller that has plenty of horror featured. I can pass on the newest comedy film or chick flick, I couldn't care less as they just aren't 'me'

I am also one of those people who always answers "no" when somebody asks "have you watched this? have you watched that?". My answer will always be no. Because of this, I want to make 2017 the year I change all of this and stop missing out on movies that are deemed as 'classics'. I want to break free of my horror mould and experience something new and watch things that maybe I wouldn't ever dream of picking up, either due to their year of creation, their category, or their subject matter. To do this I have created a short list of films that are deemed as 'classics' and I will be watching these to see if I can change my movie watching ways and become a new me

Copenhagen Travel Diary

Thursday, 12 January 2017

I recently took a long weekend trip to Copenhagen. This came about due to the fact Ryanair had a cheeky sale on right after Brexit happened. My heart broke but at least my soul was lifted by the idea of £9.99 flights from Ryanair. I was looking at destinations from Luton airport and Copenhagen was one of them so it was a done deal! I booked it and then found accommodation on Air BnB and just waited for the weekend to roll around

I made no real plans for when I was there either. I was just going to explore the city with my friend and try and experience it as best I could with little to no info. I fell in love with Copenhagen. The people, the architecture, the pastries, the cleanliness, everything about it was beautiful and hyggelig

Perfect Pancakes with Lekue

Monday, 9 January 2017

Lekue Crepe Kit
I go through phases where pancakes are a HUGE staple within my diet. It tends to be when I am in the States or know I am due to be going to the States. Seeing as I am off to Florida in August 2017, pancakes are a huge staple right now
I never seem to memorise the ingredients or quantities needed though in order to make the perfect fluffy pancakes, or crepes. I am in love with big, fat, fluffy, American style pancakes and I always forget what I need. Mixing is then such a drag, can somebody else just make them for me please?

With Lekue's Pancake & Crepe Kit, I never need to worry about being forgetful again! (I have been waching Ru Paul's Drag Race a lot recently, can you tell by that real corny plugging kinda line?)

My Tips for perfect Hair Care

Wednesday, 4 January 2017

I feel like I blog a fair bit about hair. Whether it be salons, hair care products, treatments. I literally know nothing about hair either, sorry to say. I am not a master in it, I just have culminated a various amount of experiences that have given me knowledge needed to improve my hair condition. I have the worst kind of hair as it is fine, thin, dry, damaged, with eczema in my scalp. But if my tips and tricks can help my terrible hair then they sure as hell can help you out also

Kind Snack Bars

Monday, 2 January 2017

It's now January 2017. I guess that means it is time for the 'New Year, New Me' pledges, right?
I'm not knocking the people who do make these pledges. Good on ya for trying to change yourself and hopefully for the better. I'm just not one of those people. I have spent ages trying to like me that I don't want a new me. I just want to better my lifestyle is all! The one thing that always comes up when someone wants to better themselves is weight and food. I want to try and snack better. I snack a lot at work and it's not on good stuff. This is probably severely affecting my diet and weight (as well as the birth control pill)

I now pledge for 2017 to snack better to improve my overall diet and I am starting with these snack bars by Kind

Rush Salons come to Holborn

Monday, 19 December 2016

Rush Salon, Holborn
I am no stranger to a good Rush Salon (as you can tell from my visit to Milton Keynes, West Hampstead, and the House of Rush)
I also am a regular customer to my local salon in Watford and have been for many years. I can definitely say that Rush Salons are my go to salon!

2016 has been a great year for them as they have opened many new franchises. The latest being one in Holborn within central London

Chi Kitchen Christmas Menu

Thursday, 15 December 2016

Chi Kitchen Christmas Menu
I am no stranger to Chi Kitchen. I have been twice already this year and you can read all about it here and also here. This is now a 3rd time, which is saying something because I don't actually live in Birmingham. It's nice to sometimes get away and go somewhere else for a change! Especially as this time it is for their Christmas menu
Birmingham is also well known for its christmas market so it seemed perfect to get me into the festive spirit. Christmas market and a christmas meal with a twist trip with my bestie. Couldn't think of a better way to get festive

Supercuts in Stevenage

Supercuts Stevenage

I went along recently to Supercuts new salon in Stevenage that had just opened to experience it for myself. My hair cut is simple. It is a case of trimming the ends to get rid of split ends, and re-cutting my full fringe in. Not the most exciting haircut for them to try out haha

I also had an appointment booked in for me! Again, not what Supercuts is about as they are a walk in salon but I managed to speak to the stylist about this and understand a bit more about this walk in salon system
