FaceB4 Skincare Seminar Review


Last night I was invited down to the Club Room at Mortons in London to take part in a Seminar hosted by  Sarah Harding and Medichem
The topic of the night was
Skincare
how and why we all suffer from spots and blemishes
What causes outbreaks and how for the first time embarrassing eruptions can be prevented and treated. 
We were also given the opportunity to have a look at one of Medichem’s newest skincare regime calledFaceB4 which consists of the following:
Combined cleanser and toner 
Which contains a patented ultra biocidal complex including Salicyilic  to help clean pores and reduce excess oil, in order to help help maintain clear skin. 
Anti-bacterial Serum 
Which is suitable for all skin types and vitamin enriched to moisturise, soothe and protect skin

Over champagne and nibbles we were all allowed the opportunity to interact with the products as wells ask the representatives from Medichem questions about their own skin concerns.
My first impressions of the product are very good the I didn’t play too much with the Combined cleanser and toner too much but the ingredients look good and I imagine if used regularly it would work.
The Anti-bacterial Serum could possibly be my new best friend, it is very light and absorbed quickly leaving my skin feeling soft and moisturized without feeling greasy.
 I also liked the fact that it didn’t have a heavy smell. I am very interested to try this product for a period to see how it works with my skin which is prone to the odd break out but not really problematic. 
However as I acknowledge that I have quite oily skin and I wear make up most days I do try to make an effort with my skin care regime.
Another benefit of this regime which was mentioned by Sarah Harding is that is simple yet effective there is only two steps and two product unlike other brand where there can be up to five! 

This is a really selling point to me and I can’t wait to give it a try.

What is your skin care qualms and how to you combat them?

Herra Hair Perfume Review & Giveaway



I was introduced to this brand and this product at a recent Bloggers Love event and I initially thought:
 Hair perfume ok how’s that going to work then?
Will it conflict with the normal perfume I’m wearing?


'Herra Protect Hair Perfume is an innovative product created by the joint expertise of London's finest hair talents and a leading fragrance expert. A revolutionary product with weightless, protecting and hydrating ingredients accompanied with the Herra epsilon signature fragrance.”

When I spoke to one of the brand rep I quickly learned that there I sa lot more to this product than I 1st thought.

Herra has three main components to protect, moisturise and to add fragrance:

PROTECT
Sunflower extract protects the structure of the hair. It helps provide protection against UV and can prevent colour fade, whilst olive fruit extract is rich in antioxidants that help shield the hair against pollution and free radicals.

MOISTURISE
Glycerin helps provide ample hydration and seals in moisture, without weighing down the hair.

FRAGRANCE
The Herra signature fragrance is a blend of the finest key notes creating a fresh modern, uplifting experience that appeals to all.  Ingredients include: Italian bergamot, loquat fruit, midnight orchid, rose, white jasmine, mimosa, heliotrope, lily, vanilla, tonka bean, sandalwood and musk.

The sent is super subtle but pretty and girlie I imagine that if someone was to try to talk to me closely they would then notice it but its not strong enouth to over power my perfume.
I am currently in the middle of a Jamaican Black Caster oil challenge which is not the best smelling of hair oils so I have found the Herra Hair Perfume to be a god send.
I also have to mention the packaging super chic and sophisticated as is the bottle which I have displayed with all of my other perfumes.
Even the samples are cute

Don’t believe me then why not try it for yourself

La Cure UK Natural Dead Sea Bath Salts

I cannot stress how much I LOVE this product.

I tend to surfer from joint pain and muscle pains a lot and find that the best thing to relax my body is a support hot bath.
You may know from some of my previous post I love smellies and bubble baths so I was super excited to try the La Cure UK Natural Dead Sea Bath Salts.
The website states
La Cure utilizes Natural Dead Sea Minerals to create these Natural Dead Sea Bath Salts. Relax in a warm salt bath to relieve muscle tension and the stress of daily Dead Sea Minerals give natural relief for the symptoms of skin conditions, such as psoriasis and eczema.

When I added the lovely blue crystals to my bath I 1st noticed that there was wasn’t a smell to it, I’m obviously it smelt like salt but it didn’t leave my bathroom smelling like the beach, I was also expecting my bath to turn blue it id didn’t.

After bathing in this product my skin felt super soft and I believe that it would be good for skin aliments such as psoriasis and eczema due to the lack of perfume, and dyes.

It defiantly helped soothe my muscles and I slept really well after my bath.

My new favourite thing to do is exfoliate my entire body with my

Before sinking in to a bath of La Cure UK Natural Dead Sea Bath Salts for an all over tingly feeling

Sunny Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil Review


I had a lot of feedback on my Instagram about this product so I figured I should write a quick product review



I have been using Jamaican Back Castor oil for some time now after learning about the long hair journey.

Jamaican Back Castor Oil is quit dark and thick in consistency  than the Caster oil that you can pick up at your locak pharmacy which has a lighter colour.

I remember going out to dinner with a friend and her parents and talking about how I had been using Castor oil on my hair at the time and her father told me that people had been using it in the Caribbean for years and it really does work!

Endorsement!!


Despite starting with the best intention I have to hold my head down and admit that I have not been constant with my hair care retinue and there for haven’t seen the full results
However I did notice a difference in the texture of my new growth and thickness around my edges. 
Man I wish I stuck to it.

How I used Jamaican Back Castor Oil:

Pre-wash 
Before a wash day I would oil my scalp and saturate hair with Jamaican Back Castor Oil 
(Sorry about the smell) leave it till the next they when I woudl wash it.

Deep Condition
Deep conditioner I would add a few drops of Jamaican Back Castor oil to my conditioner along with various essential oils cover hair with a shower cap and sit under the dryer.

Moisturize
Using a applicator bottle apply oil directly to the scalp and then massage it in

Do you use Jamaican Back Castor oil?
How were your results? 

Radio Rooftop Bar, MEdiaLounge at the ME London Hotel


Hosted by felicities in the stunning ME London Hotel the media lounge was a sea of tranquillity away from 

the  hustle and bustle at Somerset House.

 Press and bloggers were treated to refreshments and allowed access to laptops and ipads to write reviews of the shows.
  As well as check out the designer creations that graced the lobby 





Thanks for having me guys I really enjoyed coming down you are life savers!

Jean Pierre Braganza London Fashion Week A/W14

I really regret missing this show as I bet it looks do dramatic inside the tents.

Predominately  black and dark hues I initially thought 80’s power dressing meets biker chic
 but there was defiantly a lot more to this collection. 
I loved the oversized shapes and exaggerated sleeves.
 Graphic prints
brocades and leather 
were cleverly put together resulting in a very wearable collection. 

Bora Aksu London Fashion Week A/W14

The rain was pouring the line was around the corner and I admitted defeat and retreated to the Felicities press lounge in the ME hotel which smelt amazing by the way.
I must say that Bora Aksu collection is defiantly one that I tend to look forward to as he always manages to marry the most interesting concepts, shapes and colours. 
His A/W14 offering which is inspired by his mother, Birsen, and her letters from boarding school. 
In my opinion seem to be a marriage of the strict uniformed society you would have learned to live with in a boarding school and his individual style and culture represented with the collars and skirts. 
Blacks and midnight blues provide formal and structured, with hints of reds and mustard.
 I also find the shapes to be quite folksy with puffed sleeves, belted waists and bagged shorts helping to break the uniformity.
Oh yeah and I love the way the braids are looped around the models heads 
Wonder if I can pull it off

London Fashion Week A/W14

Not a very romantic day for Lovers or for fashion
Same old story overslept ........Missed train ...........Missed 1st show
Well actually got to the press lounge  in time to catch the live stream 


The weather has defiantly had an effect on the fashions that are normally on show as the crowds are no where as big as they normally are. 

next show Bora Asku time to line up in the rain.
