I know, I know I’ve said it before. But this truly is the BEST shampoo and conditioner that I have ever used. Herbal Essence Cucumber and Green Tea shampoo and conditioner leaves your hair feeling soft, smooth, bouncy and undeniably clean. That may sound silly, but you know how sometimes you wash your hair and it still feels dirty? Not with this duo.
Winter is not really a good time for me. Constantly competing with the elements and central heating leaves my skin dry and feeling quite sore. I find it so hard to keep my skin moisturised and a long time ago gave up altogether on ever having flake free skin during the colder months. I think it’s important to mention that I have extremely dry, sensitive skin; and have fought with it my entire life. I’ve tried everything I could to tame it – I’ve had creams from the doctor, covered myself in coconut oil, tried the thickest body creams I could find and have even resorted to creaming 3-4 times a day.
I remember skin flying around the room and white flakes coating the inside of my clothes. To say that it’s been a constant fight is an understatement! But this year is different. I’ve finally found something that leaves my skin feeling and looking soft, and – for the first time – completely flake free!
I know that around this time of year most people vow to eat healthier. To cut the sugar, avoid the pizza and skip the extra snack between meals. But sometimes after trying your hardest to make the ‘right’ choices, you’re still left with a little craving.
Whether your weakness is crisps, chocolate or something else all together; I know it can be really hard to resist and head straight for your favourite comfort food. But, you should never cut out snacks completely! What you really need is to find something else that satisfies your craving and keeps you going until your next meal.
Grey manicures; tipped to be one of the biggest nail trends of 2019. Consider it to be the new nude along flattering shades of taupe, brown and olive green. Think simple, soft, chic and perfectly neutral. We saw grey on the Prabal Gurung runway, showing just how pretty this soft and subtle shade can be.
Another big trend? Super glossy and high shine finishes. Think gel inspired manicures that catch the light and almost look wet. So when I got this No. 7 ‘Porcini’ coloured Gel Finish Nail Colour, I was super excited. Two trends wrapped up together in a soft, subtle shade. I knew it was something that I had to try straight away. And of course share my honest opinion and review.
Creamy lentils perfectly spiced with just a tiny hint of chilli, chunks of soft sweet potato mixed in with lightly wilted spinach. All piled on top of fluffy white rice with a warm pitta on the side. For me, you can’t get much better than that. Especially on a cold night after a long day of work. I think that my favourite thing about this meal is definitely the simplicity of it all. It’s such an easy recipe to make, and takes hardly any time at all. There’s minimal prep and the whole thing can be done in just under an hour.
