Good Afternoon! It's been a very busy week with many coursework deadlines coming up next week, though I did manage to bag myself a new job hooray! Today's post will entail how I scrub up, literally - from what I wash my hair with to what put on my feet. Hope you enjoy a bit of a different post! 

What I eat: I thought I'd pop in a little snap of my breakfast this morning, ready for a full day of hard work... Or procrastinating, who knows?! This is a little concoction of trail mix, granola and chia seeds with some natural yoghurt. YUM. How pretty is my bowl though, who needs a boyfriend when you have heart bowls... 

What I wash my hair with: I wanted to try something different in my hair as recently I've noticed my scalp becoming dry and nobody wants to suffer with the dreaded dandruff so I looked at some reviews and saw this Ginger Anti-Dandruff Shampoo from The Body Shop was meant to be a great deterrent and it's done me well! My scalp feels as fresh as ever and it gives your hair a great scrub as it lathers up really well. The Banana Conditioner just kinda caught my eye as I thought it looked really cool and this works really well with the Shampoo. Thumbs up. This Philip Kingsley Elasticizer was recommended to me by a few people so I thought I'd give it a go, it is a pre-shampoo so you can use all three of these products together to make your hair look absolutely beautiful, it adds plenty of bounce and shine leaving your hair looking healthy as ever.

What I brush my hair with: Tangle Teezers are life! Like how I even managed without one of these is beyond me, I opted for this gorgeous lime green and pink one from Asos about a year ago and it has been my saviour ever since. I've also got my eye on the new Lulu Guinness one, a designer hairbrush... YES please!

What I wash with: Currently I am using Original Source's Vanilla and Raspberry Shower Gel which is an absolute heaven send, it smells b-e-a-u-tiful. However I figured a nearly empty bottle didn't really do it justice so I haven't included a picture, I've linked it so you can check it out! I also looove Lush's Snow Fairy range and this shower gel smells gorgeous, plus it's soooo pretty. Unfortunately though, this is a festive special so you're gonna have to stock up next Christmas ladies. ;) The Body Shop box set was a Christmas Gift which I still haven't had the pleasure of using, but strawberry is my favourite flavour of scents in there and I know I'm gonna totally love it! You can still buy all these products separately here.

What I use on my face: Tea tree is perfect for me when my face is starting to become a bit oily and blemished. Firstly I use the scrub with this little facial brush from Body Shop to clear my skin and then I gently wipe over a cotton pad with some of this toner - leaves your skin feeling fresh and fabulous! If I'm not using the exfoliator before hand I use this lovely Creme de le mar cleansing lotion which is great at removing every last bit of makeup and its soothing formula leaves the skin feeling soft and cleansed. 

What I wear on my feet: I had to include these super cute socks which I received as a gift from Monk,  I pop these on whenever my tootsies are feeling a bit chilly and need warming up, you can get them in Claire's Accessories! 

I hope you enjoyed this post! Going to try and start posting every Sunday, have a great week and pop in the comments box any products that you love using, I'd love too see how you guys scrub up!

Thank you for reading! xxxxxx

Sooo it's been a long time since we last posted anything on here and it's safe to say a post is well due! We've been busy to our eyelids and we've been putting blogging off for a while due to this so we're sorry for the delay!

It's a sunny Sunday so we figured why not write up a little post. Crystal came to visit me in London last week so I thought I'd share the experience as we had sooo much fun!! 

For a while now we have been slightly obsessed with Madeline Shaw (if you haven't heard of her she's a celebrity nutritionist who's absolutely beautiful inside and out). So we'd seen she was running an array of events from cooking classes to yoga and we were keen to go and meet with her to see how she achieves her glow! 

Last Friday we attended her Yoga Babes event with Shona Vertue, who we are also in awe of, and we absolutely loved it!

Here are some pics of the day:

The last pic is of our brunch we received after the yoga sesh which was so delicious and perfect for refuelling for the day - I would definitely recommend going along to one of Madeline's events if you're after a bit of inspiration or just a bit of fun!

The event finished by 1pm so Monk and I headed back to Kingston where I showed her what I get up to in my daily affairs, we stopped off for a gorgeous coffee at Hands Coffee Co which is my favourite coffee shop in Kingston - if you're ever around Kingston you must go and try, they do a cracking hot chocolate also!

For the evening we headed to Whisky Mist, a club in Mayfair where we celebrated our reunion over a few drinks! Here's a pic of the Monk and I pre and post drinks... we may have gotten slightly tipsy.

Hope you enjoyed this post! We will try our best to start making them more regular again! Happy Sunday x X x
