The Brick Lane Girl


























Recently went for a quick lunch at Sunday Market - Brick Lane. My friend was dressed in a vintage dress, vintage Chanel clutch, black heeled boots with a simple messy top bun. This vintage dress has all the colours for s/s13 - bold and bright! This Chanel vintage bag was bought on a Ebay store for around £300, an amazing price! My friend was also spotted by ASOS - her snap will be posted in next months issue.

Games of Thrones - Khalessi



Games of Thrones is back with Season 3 - Wow Emilia Clarke looks amazing at the premier, in a royal blue dress, straight super sleek hair with a smokey grey eye! I will definitely be copying this soft smokey eye for a night out, Sleek make-up palette would be perfect! 

Hair Care Update - Organix


Wow so Boots 3 for 2 is still going on! I've been using L'Oreal products for quite some time but it isn't working for my hair anymore, I've been in need of a change. I came across Organix range, the bottle shape caught my eye at first and then boldly written 'Moroccan Argan Oil and Macadamia Oil'. A product that has both these ingredients should do the trick, also slight difference in price range compared to L'Oreal but as on offer, why not! For my freebie third product I choose the Moroccan Leave in Argan Oil, very small bottle but the contents being an oil form, you would only need a very small amount each time (great travel size). 

I found both the shampoo and conditioner to be of a thicker consistency compared to any other shampoo I've ever tried,  but not to worry it works like a dream! The bottles both contain 385ml compared to the large L'Oreal bottle which  has 400ml, not a big difference in quantity but in my opinion yes a big difference in quality.

The Moroccan Leave in Argan Oil was not sticky what so ever and can be easily blow dried as normal after. My hair feels amazing, strong, healthy, extremely smooth and does everything that it says on the bottle, I highly would recommend these products! 

Got any 3 for 2 offers lately?

In a rush to make some dessert? Well this is perfect quick yummy recipe on how to do so!

Ingredients 
- Packet of Meringue nests
- 1 packet Strawberries & 1 packet raspberries
- Jar of Lemon curd
- Double Cream

Method
- Lay out all the mini meringues on to a plate.
- Whip double cream with an electric whisk in a bowl with a few tablespoons of sugar until the cream holds its shape. 
- Chop strawberries and add to whipped cream also not forgetting the raspberries (mix with spoon).
- Place a tea spoon of lemon curd in the centre of each meringue.
- Now add your whipped cream with fruit on to centre of meringue.
- If you like you can add a raspberry for finish touch.

The End

 PS. Another idea is just to mash up the meringues to create an eton mess?!

Clarisonic Dupe?! - No.7 Cleansing Brush


Cleansing brushes are on high demand at the moment and finally there is a high street dupe out! 
Firstly price tag is £25 compared to the Clarisonic costing a whopper £125! 

This product comes in a standard white&blue box, electronic brush and two AA batteries. The brush has rubber grips also a button with two rotating speed settings. Pretty simple to use, wet the brush head, apply cleanser and begin with small circular movements around your face. I personally found the brush head bristles to be just as soft as the Clarisonic. The No.7 brush head is removable for new brush heads which comes in a pack of two, available for £8. 

In conclusion I find this product to be a great effective cleansing brush. Even if your looking for a weekly exfoliator I would highly recommend this.

This product is currently on a 3 for 2 offer at Boots. 

Let me know what you think?

Thailand


Last year in November my partner and I embarked on a journey to Thailand! Starting off in Bangkok then to Chiang Mai, Phuket, Phi Phi Islands, Koh Sumui returning back to Bangkok. An amazing adventure for 2 weeks all thanks to our trusty Lonely Planet book (available on Amazon). I recommend planning your journey, booking domestic flights before but not booking accommodation as the hotels will offer you a much cheaper deal there, saving your money! All information will be in the book!
