Time for another hairstyle?

I wouldn’t say I’m obsessed with my hair and I spend half of my day looking at it in the mirror or I spend hours getting it right before leaving the house. I know people who do this and I’m definitely not one of them.

But I do like to take care of my hair and when you have curls you either accept the challenge or you’ll be looking like a mess.

I’ve shared many tips on how to keep a healthy hair previously in the blog. Applying coconut oil hours before the washing, beer hair masks, applying Apple cider vinegar after washing your hair for awesome curls to pop out, avoiding washing your hair too often and start using dry shampoo more often (here’s a really good guide on the best dry shampoo)… and the list goes on… you can check these posts under the Beauty section of the blog.

Now it’s my turn to ask for advice. I’m looking to change my hairstyle once again and I’m open for suggestions. I had highlights, fringe, short, long hair… but I’m looking for something different and I want to do it in the next few months, so feel free to leave a comment below with your suggestion and keep an eye on Instagram for the big change

Plant Powered Smoothies| Batch Organics Review

And I’m back at the Gym again! It’s been exactly an year since I stopped going to the gym because I thought that walking daily would be enough. And it’s enough to keep me active but not to keep me fit. There’s nothing like a good workout to make you feel good about myself, so here I am back again, but this time I had to adapt my diet to my new lifestyle.

Since a few months back I’ve decided to slowly give up on meat and that means that I need to get my nutritious needs somewhere else.

I’ve recently found the Plant powered Smoothies from Batch Organics that are 100% organic, gluten free and plant-based. And I thought it’s about time that I tell you guys about it!

I know we don’t have time to be home preparing smoothies, so what if I told you that they deliver really nice cups filled with the right amount of healthy organic frozen fruit, veg and superfoods to your door? And they’re designed to be popped straight into the freezer so that you can use them as and when you need them? Cool, hein?

I take mine sometimes in the morning if I don’t have time to prepare breakfast. Sometimes I have them in the middle of the afternoon when I need an energy boost and the same after a gym session.

So here are the smoothies I’ve tried and you can find different ones on Batch Organics website.

Greens & Ginger – Definitely my favourite, with organic avocado, kale, courgette, ginger, lime, moringa and yacoon root.

Cherry & Charcoal – This one isn’t only delicious but the colour is also amazing, with Organic cherries, blueberries, kale, apple, ginger, rosemary and charcoal.

Kiwi & Bee Pollen – I didn’t enjoy this one, but I’m also not a big fan of mango so I guess it makes sense. It included pineapple, mango, kiwi, papaya, lime, maca, cinamon ashwagandha and bee pollen.

I haven’t tried the Mango & Basil one you can see on the image but it’s on my pans for this evening.

Anatomicals Face Masks| Valentine’s series

Valentine’s day is almost here and this year, Anatomicals challenged me to review 4 of their face masks along with my boyfriend.

Andre is not a big fan of face masks. Basically anything on his face makes him feel uncomfortable, but he loves the end result, so I knew this was definitely something we needed to try.

So here are our reviews along with a few crazy photos from the experiment:

Face Mask: I feel the need, the need for seaweed. calming algae face mask

What we have to say about it: Definitely our favour in terms of colour. Andre loved the smell and said it made him feel very relaxed. But what left us speechless was how refreshed and smooth our skin felt after we removed it.

Face Mask: Makes your skin brighter. (if not you) strawberry + yarrow face mask

What we have to say about it: It’s stinging time! This wasn’t one of Andre’s favourite until he took it off and felt his skin very moisturised. I simply loved the smell of strawberries in my skin.

Face Mask: “Anatomicals Farewell The Scarlet Pimperhell Face Mask’ 

What we have to say about it: I had tried this mask before so I couldn’t wait to see Andre’s reaction to it. Our faces ended up really clean and this mask was great to absorb excess oil. Loved it!

Face Mask: ‘Look, You’ve Got Chocolate All Over Your Face, Anti Stress Mask’

What we have to say about it: We both had a nice glow after this mask. The properties of dead sea salt combined with the moisturising benefits of cocoa butter and shea butter really makes a difference to your skin. Andre said the smell was just like entering M&Ms store in London.
