The Breakfast Fizz Recipe

I Lush You

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 2 views



Lush is one of my fav store for all things pamper related. I really like the fact that everything in their store is all natural. Whenever, I dare to enter any of their stores, I want to buy each and every thing. On my last visit to my local store, I picked up a few essentials :-) Here is a preview on my findings.

Tea Tree Water

I especially bought this because I have read that tea tree is good for people who are prone to break-out. When I tried this I was very impressed. This water is very refreshing, not at all drying on the skin. This toner water is amazing,it leaves the skin feeling soft, and helps to minimise breakouts.

For a list of ingredients, please click here.

R&B Hair Moisturiser

I first came across this product on YouTube…my place for most new discoveries. In all honesty, I have loved using this product on my afro. This is by far one of the best hair products I have ever used. As the name suggests, R&B Hair Moisturiser…it is great for very dry hair. Contains, lots of essential  rich hair oils and butter. My hair loves this product; I can use it on my hair wet or dry….it smells great, very moisturising….a little goes a long way. This product is wonderful and if you have dry hair or untamable hair then you should definitely give this a try.

Enzymion Facial Moisturiser

I was very excited to try this product… a facial moisturiser that helps replenish moisture without the unwanted oiliness. You can only get this in the small tub. I have very oily skin and this cream is drying…. not greasy and smells ok; does exactly, what it is supposed to… can’t really say anything more about this product other than it’s amazing. if you have oily/combination skin, then give this a go.

I hope this helps? I hope you had a lovely weekend!

A little Mac Haul

By Posted on 0 Comments 2 min read 2 views

I picked up these goodies on my last visit to the Mac site….


The whole Kylie Jenner lip craze got me into the mood to try this liner. I eventually got my hands on this liner, after the liner after months of searching high and low. I put my hands up…yep I am one of the ladies that was sucked in. To tell you the truth soar (here) is worth the hype. This mid-tone pink brown is a flattering colour for all skin tones.  I have been wearing this flattering liner alone as a lip colour…. on my lips it looks more pink than brown. I like use it when I need a bit of colour. Are you obsessed with the Jenner Lip? Have you found any good dupes for her lip shade? Please let me know in the comment section below. I have read that Rimmel Spice Liner might be a dupe.

I have wanted this for a while and like many popular Mac products, it has been sold out for as long as I have wanted it. Well, I finally got my mitts on it. I must say that I was very disappointed with this product. I didn’t like the feel on my lips when I applied it nor did I notice the longevity of my lip colour when applied over this.  I tried the Elizabeth Arden Advanced Lip Fix Cream which in my opinion is much better.

Have you tried Mac’s Prep+Prime Lip yet? Did you like using it? Any thoughts….

I was totally in love with this colour when I saw it online. Just like all the other products in this post, I have been haunting this lipstick for ages. I wanted to get all the shades in the collection …..but they are sold out which is very disappointing and I don’t to get it on Ebay because it costs twice as much.

I really love the colour and finish. It’s bright orangey red with a matte finish. Applies effortlessly… a little too bright for me. I haven’t built up the courage to wear it out yet though. A very lovely colour don’t you think? and it’s not drying on the lips at all.

Birchbox July 2015: Make A Splash

By Posted on 0 Comments 4 min read 4 views
If you’re lucky enough to be jetting off on holiday this summer, then you’ll love this month’s Birchbox . Or If you’re one of the unlucky few with no holiday plans overseas plans, I am sure you’ll enjoy the July box, just the same.  This month’s Birchbox has been replaced with a ‘Limited Edition Birchbag‘ in a variety of vibrant colours, inspired by travels of the Beauty Editors from Sunday Times Style,  Grazia and  Condé Nast Traveller.


With summer in full bloom, the Birchbag will definitely put a big smile on your face. This month’s line up includes a mix of makeup and beauty must-have to help you look  and feel your best this season, even when it gets piping hot.

Birchbox is a monthly beauty subscription box. The box normally includes 5-6 selected makeup, beauty, hair and sometimes an extra lifestyle products from well-known brands and emerging brands. As well their monthly box subscription, Birchbox is a destination where you can purchase beauty, makeup and lifestyle products from the brands featured in their boxes with the points system that many subscription boxes now offer. All their monthly boxes comes with a handy guide for each and every product included in the box. So you’ll definitely know what to do with each product you receive. Check out their website for more details on them!

My July Birchbag features a mix of both known and newly discovered brands.
The three shadow are very pretty shimmery neutral colours, consisting of light to dark shades. Peach Parfait is great palette for anyone to create a very natural day-time or night-time look plus it’s easy to carry, making this a must-have palette for summer. Though, it is on the pricey side for just ten colours. Sorry POP Beauty:-(

Benefit Cosmetics Dream Screen – £25.00

This little cutie is the perfect carry-on for all this season. The Dream Screen is an oil-free, silky-matte sun lotion with broad spectrum SPF 45 to protect you from UVB and UVA rays. It can be worn under makeup or on its own. It ultra light -weight, absorbs very quickly, leaves the skin moisturised and does not leave a blue film, it’s truly invisible.
Get to know your sunscreen——> here.
Soigné is a cruelty-free brand that uses non-toxic formulas in all their products. The sample I received comes in a their signature bottle. Menthe is a beautiful soft mint colour, perfect for adding some colour to the nails. This polish is very easy to use, it comes with a wide enough brush for easy application. Two coat is enough coverage for me with the colour; a single coat looks a little thin and uneven. I love this nail polish! Although, it is a little on the pricey side.

Unani Aloe Vera Gel – £15.00

Packed with pure aloe vera, this product claims to help soothe and calm the skin and us help recover from sunburn. It is basically like an after sun lotion but more healing properties plus it works great on blemishes, bites and eczema. I am very sorry, I cannot comment on  any long-term effects because the sample isn’t enough for that. I will like to try it though and see. Please let me know how you got on with this product.

This is a new brand discovery for me. With a bit of research, I found out that BioNike is an Italian based company that prides itself in creating affordable useful products. The cleansing water in particular, is for users with sensitive skin. It helps to sweeps away dirt, makeup, cleanses skin and helps to soothe sore spots.Its worth a try because there are so many cleansing water out there and at this price, It’s very affordable, don’t you think! Spa To You Nail File – £2.99

A great little device to round-up the self-grooming holiday inspired box. This little gem is great little tool to help keep our nails on point all the time.

The Birchbag I must say that, I am very impressed. The ladies at Birchbox as always continue to keep me interested and without fail, there’s always something in the box that I manage to love and I am always discovering new brands from their monthly boxes. If you’re thinking of trying out from big-named brands or emerging brands, then definitely give this a try.
