taste of london with a twist

If you didn't already know from my  Taste of London give away last week, I was lucky enough to be invited by freuds.com to go to the Taste of London event at Regents' park from the 17-21st of June. I went on the final Sunday with my dear friend Betsy! So I came, I tasted, I drank and I went back home with enough gorgeous foods in my belly to last me a week. So yeap! It was lots of fun, very yummy and the sun was out most of the day! But I will shock you because I decided not to talk about Taste of London in this post! sorry. If you want to know more why then scroll down!!

makeup revolution lipsticks review

If you know me you'll know I have a big love for lipstick! I think out of all the hundreds of beauty items we can choose from, lipstick has always been on top of my list and something I get especially excited about. In my make up collection I probably own 30 lipsticks give or take from L'Oréal, Chanel, Dior, Rimmel etc. I think this love/obsession for lipstick comes from being lucky enough to have full lips, my mum always told me that my lips are my best feature and I should embrace them, so yeah I kind of follow her advice! By the way she used to be a make up artist back in the 80's and 90's so I guess she know's what she is talking about. She is defiantly my make up inspiration Thanks mum !

models own // little haul

I am not sure its because it is finally summer but I keep purchasing nail polish! Usually I always stop at the BarryM stand because if you'll know me or read previous blog post such as this one or even this one then you'll know that I love BarryM nail polish a lot! Having said that the other day I came across Models Own huge nail polish stand in Stratford Westfield and then I remembered how much I used to love Models Own few years back before I discovered BarryM.

Taste of London event -4 tickets giveway offered by Asda

Hi my lovelies,
I got something rather exciting to tell you today :
A few days ago I was contacted by Freuds.com the PR agency behind a new exciting event for Asdawhich is a partner of Taste of London, to give away 4 tickets to two of my readers for guess what? The Taste of London event on the 17th-21st of June at Regent's Park.  Yep! you heard it, how exciting is this?! I love food a LOT (please refer to my growing waist line). I love watching all those TV food programs such as Master Chef, The Great British Bake Off which by the way I cannot wait for this years series to start and I love experimenting with foods  (I succeed burned last night diner but it was an experiment *cough cough* really) so this event is just up my street. And perhaps I could learn few bits and bobs along the way too, which I am sure will be appreciated by my always very hungry boyfriend who hopes that one day I will stop mixing odd stuff together thinking it would be nice!

body shop aqua boost sorbet review

For the past few weeks I have been using The Aqua Boost Sorbet by The Body Shop I'll be honest with you I have never bought a face cream by Body Shop. I usually get from their store; body spray, body butter or hand cream so this was a break from the norm.
I am not sure where to start because I am so excited to introduce you to this product. First thing first,
what appealed to me first was the name 'Aqua Boost Sorbet'! Right now my skin is craving for hydration and nothing seems to help rehydrate, even drinking my daily quota of a litre and a half of water. So seeing this mentioned attracted me like a magnet to a fridge :)  
Secondly what appealed to me is this little pot is filled with Vitamin E. So to recap: Full of Aqua boosting and Vitamin E! Where do I sign?

home made avocado & poached egg on toast

Lately I have been craving avocado on toast or in salad. I do not know where this craving came from but I just love the taste and it's also full of the good fat, vitamin E, B5, B6, K, potassium, magnesium etc. So I can't see why I shouldn't be enjoying this amazingly versatile fruit! I'll be honest lately I am also trying to go back into a healthy diet so introducing avocado into my diet was a natural choice.
I will share with you a very quick and easy lunch with our superstar; the avocado, that is yummy, colourful and most of all healthy.
