January skin care products

So as  promised I am reviewing some of the stuff I got for Christmas

Remember this box of lush goodies?? Well I've finally got round to using the Honey Soap (top left) and the heart shaped massage bar on the right. The soap lathers up nicely and it feels very creamy, even oily according to my Mom. It's definitely not like regular soaps because it doesn't leave that stripped-tight-skin feeling after using it. The scent of honey is prominent but sweet and definitely lingers for a few hours. 
As for the massage bar, it's like rubbing vanilla and white chocolate all over my body. Compared to what I've heard about other massage bars it takes quite a while to melt in my hands. It's oily, sticky and difficult to spread on dry skin so I would recommend using an aqueous moisturiser first. The scent lingers until I wash it off and even stays on my clothes. I've been so tempted to eat my own arm I'm worried I'll turn into a cannibal. Zombie apocalypse here I …

One Year Bloggiversary

(insert party poppers here....) (but for health and safety please don't pop them in people's faces)

Today is my blog's very first birthday!!!
I can't believe I've kept up with this for a whole year!! This is the closest thing to a diary that I have done consistently for a long period of time. When I first started this blog I had no idea what I was going to do with it or why I even started it in the first place. But naturally it took it's own form and I started to write about the things that consumed my most of my thoughts.........
The first being my hair...
I have been obsessed with my hair before, during a time which I like to call the "dark days" (you can read about it here) I had managed to suppress this obsession but it was still rooted deep within me and resurfaced when I started to experiment with products during my first year of university. I lived very close to three ethnic hair stores on the same street so naturally I be…

Naked Rescue, Argan Magic, White teeth and Natural Deodorant

I was supposed to do this post a while ago, weeks before Christmas, but what with all the presents and celebrations I couldn't find it in me to get this post out, but here it is now,
 better late than never right???......

This is the naked rescue hair care bundle. From left to right you get a shampoo, conditioner, and a leave-in conditioner. They all have a similar heavenly scent which I think has something to do with the shea butter. The conditioner is rich and thick and the little miracle leave-in is the best thing I've ever used after washing my hair. The shampoo itself is a little quite stripping and I probably wouldn't buy it on it's own. Individually these products are close to £4 each (that's £12 in total) however for £9.00 you can have this whole bundle that works a treat.

Argan magic Body lotion (£7.99) and Conditioner (££££ more than I want to admit) Both from T.K Maxx but I haven't tried the conditioner yet. The body lotion isn't thick but the s…

2014 Resolutions

Oh dear god its here!!! 
The new year has come around with the blink of an eye!!!
Now I'm not going to faffle here, I'm going to get straight to the point and tell you my new year resolutions
1. Trim down and tone up I'm taking part in something called the beach body ready challenge this year on MyFitnessPal. this is a website and an apple app that you can use to track your calorie intake and expenditure.
2. Work out almost every day In order to achieve number 1 but to also set me in a routine

3. Have breakfast by 10am  This is the the most important meal of the day and having a lie ins until 11 means I tend to miss out when I really need it

4. Have 3 portions of fruit and veg a day I never achieve my five a day, which is sad because I really do like fruit, but buying it and having enough for myself in a greedy family of six is a god damn hassle.

5. Join a belly dancing class I have been obsessing over tutorials and workout videos on YouTube and would love to learn how to…
