Secret scent box 

Secret scent box it is a subscription service where you pay ¬£15 every month and you will receive 3 perfume samples, 3 ml each which will last up  to 30 days using 4 sprays a day.  Each scent is randomly picked. And as I am absolutely obsessed with the perfumes and always looking for new fragrances this service give me a chance to try some great fragrances before making design on my next purchase. 

This month I have received 

W- by Ted Baker 

This is very gentle and sophisticated fragrance which I have never tried before, I don’t know why but it never appealed to me , maybe because of bottle design which is nothing wrong with, but also there is nothing unusual which cought my eye . But going back to the fragrance is very fresh with notes of peony , african violet, pink orchid, raspberry, cedar and vanilla which makes it great day time fragrance especially suitable in spring and summer.  I  was impressed with “W” how lovely and light is but for another hand it doesn’t last all day, I couldn’t smell anything in the evening which is not what I am used to.  Personally I would not buy it just for that practical reason, but if someone is not bothered by the fact that fragrance doesn’t last that long , this could be a lovely daily weare ūüĎć

Amor Amor -by Cacharel 

This is another fragrance i haven’t been able to use before and this is a classic because I have seen it in the shops for many years, and I little bit disappointed with myself that I have never bought it as this is surprisingly great perfume, It’s a fruity floral that’s both fresh and sexy , it makes me feel little bit different , it makes me stand out from the crowd lol and what’s very important for me it does last all day, definitely worth buying it. Well I know I will ūüėČ

Mon Guerlain- by Guerlain 

Oh this is my favourite out of the whole trio, simply because it’s  luxurious,very strong (and I love strong), very feminine and sensual. It makes me feel very special . I will be wearing it on the daily basis and  on the special occasions as well. I couldn’t be more happier with this perfume and absolutely recommend it to other ladies who love little bit of luxury in life ūüėä

Eye love

OOlution is the result of founder Anne-Marie’s mission to create skincare that doesn’t rely on just one or two ingredients, but a host actives. She also wanted it to be a treat to use and to steer clear of synthetic ingredients and palm oil. She certainly succeeded at what she set out to achieve with this luxurious eye cream . The 100% natural formula is hydrating and rich in antioxidants, helping to diminish dark circles and reduce puffiness, whether you use it at the end of the long  day or in the morning after ūüėČ

BC Bonacure -Hair Treatment 

I love discovering new products and one of them is a BC Bonacure Oil Miracle Brazilnut Oil Pulp Treatment by Schwarzkopf Professional.  This cute little pot lasts about month using it twice a week, if you have medium length hair like myself , work into mid-lengths and ends of towel dried hair , combing trough it to ensure it’s evenly spreaded, than leave it for 10 minutes and rinse it off thoroughly. So why I like it so much? Because innovative argan powder particles gently removes impurities from hair while macadamia nut intensely nourishes and UV filters help protect from the sun , which makes my hair very smooth,shiny and more manageable.  Definitely will recommend this product.  I have received this pot in my Glossybox and it is a sample size of 30 ml , which if you want to try it is available on http://www.schwarzkopf-professional.co.uk at the price of ¬£3.95 

This Works 

This little gem was one of the products I have received in my Glossybox March edition. In Transit camera close- up is a hero product for very good reason… why ? Because it’s just what my skin needs when it has lost its equilibrium. This primer balances, plumps and brightens skin leaving it lovely and smooth ready for photo shoot, there are rumours that Victoria Beckham loves it so much lol.I like to use it over my usual moisturiser or face oil for extra hydration boost and I am ready to apply my makeup. I would happily recommend this product it really gives me fresher looking makeup and it lasts all day . The only bad thing is that it cost ¬£28 for 30 ml ,so it is bit expensive, but for another hand you only need small amount of it pea size for whole face . 

Worth trying ūüėČ 

Glossy box . Beauty Surprise-March 

Recently I have been hearing a lot about beauty box subscriptions, and was wondering if this is any good. Did some research what kind of boxes are available in UK and decided to try Glossy Box UK. It costs  ¬£10 a month plus delivery so it’s not bad for what you get believe me . The real fun about it is that you never know what you’ll receive each month all you know that you’ll get 5 beauty products to try . When my box has arrived I must say I was very impressed with packaging. Beautifully presented pink box with black ribbon and 5 products inside. 

I have received 

oOlution- eye cream 100% 20 ml

Eye and cheek Pallette full size 

This Works in transit camera close up  20 ml 

Figs & Rouge day cream 20 ml

Love Natural Skincare

 Why natural cosmetics?
Because nobody has discovered anything better than nature itself. After years and years of using everything chemical nowadays we observe that allover the world fashion is for everything what’s real not fake , natural not chemical .
Not only old home remedies and cosmetics has been rediscovered but also companies putting a lots of hard work and efforts to master natural noninvasive methods creating everything the best from the plants. More often we’re looking for more traditional ways of beauty regime , simply because only what’s natural its safe this days. Ingredients in natural cosmetics should be free from any harsh perfumes , colorants or preservatives. Plant components in natural cosmetics should come from controlled farms where only natural ways has been used to grow the plants which means they should be free from any chemical waste.
The closer to the nature means better product , but i am sure you already know that 13627243_1707474392837943_2550683889218194883_n

Diet

Fit young woman fighting off fast food                                                                                                                                                                         Poor nutrition ultimately means poor health in one form or another. Nor can you escape your background. Poor nutrition experienced over generations is recorded and expressed genetically as various strengths and weaknesses in the body. So anything positive you can do now will not only store up potential good health for the future but will also help to repair negative states from the past.
You will have more resistance to disease and will experience increased health and vitality.
You need to follow a healthy programme which might include.
Exercise and Relaxation
Eating plenty of complex carbohydrates like grains, pulses, fruits and vegetables
Eating plenty of nuts, seeds and yellow and green leafy vegetables
Limiting intake of animal protein , especially red meat , en excess of which is linked to cancer of the colon.
Cutting down on salt and processed food’s
Cutting down on sugar
Avoiding fried and fatty food’s ( excluding stir fries)
Reduction of diary intake
Cutting down on alcohol and caffeine
Stop smoking
At time of stress or illness taking a good multivitamin and mineral supplement , and rising of your intake of Vitamin C can be also useful boost for the immune system.
The role of healthy programme can also play a part in helping certain conditions like eczema and psoriasis which are often exacerbated by spicy food , dairy products , citrus fruits , alcoholic drinks , coffee and fry – ups.

So its all about changing a lifestyle not Dieting ,¬†I think most diets don’t work for long time , always kicking you back with yoyo effect . But if you slowly change your lifestyle

it is more likely to work permanently . Well it works for me :}

From The Beehive

 

 

I have used this product for over 2 years and cannot find the words to adequately explain how good it is. I used it for long hard outdoors workouts three times a week to keep my peak performance at optimal levels. Nothing is as healthy and concentrated in super high quality protein and energy so you have less blood used for utilizing it and more blood to keep oxygen levels up. Not all bee products are the same, and the kind you get at the local unmentioned health store just do not work very good at all. Different locations give different pollens to gather. This brand gathers the pollen in pollution free dry desert so it is pure and pollution free. The types of pollen gathered there makes it unique and potent.

Since earliest times, the bee has fascinated man with its examples of industry and organisation, producing the bountiful gifts of honey, royal jelly, bee Pollen and Propolis.
What is BEE POLLEN ?
Is the male fertilising component of plant reproduction. Bees gather and bring it back to their hives for food. Without Pollen, plants, trees and flowers could not exist, even we depend on it.
Bee Pollen provides a wide spectrum of essential nutrients. Each is required to maintain perfect health.
The nutrients in bee Pollen are readily digestible and easy absorbed by the human body. Many people obtain benefit, including athletes who take it for stamina and energy. In addition, bee Pollen has number of specific benefits:
* can help to correct body chemistry and so counteract the effects of food additives and 

* it can desensitise the body, making it a good supplement
*it is also bacteriostatic, suppressing the activity of bacteria and increases the effective elimination of wastes and poisons from the body.
Bee Pollen also contains lecithin, which occurs naturally in all cells. Thus it aids in digestion and the metabolism of fats, and improves the efficiency of immune and nervous system.
