Cultural Occasion

I do love a good Asian Outfit. My favourite part of my culture has always been the attire and dressing up like a princess is always fun. I don't usually wear gold jewellery very much as silver has always looked better on me but as the outfit is embellished in gold, this jewellery set was perfect in my eyes.

The outfit came from an array of locations so I can't actually remember where ti was all from, or link you to anywhere but Upton Park is a great location for similar dresses and jewellery.

Rose Dream

The summer is well and truly underway. Here in the UK we're recovering from an exhausting heatwave. In good summer spirit, I thought I would share some ways that I'm taking care of one of my biggest accessories this summer; my skin. 

One form of relaxing "me-time" I've gotten pleasantly used to recently is bath time. I've started taking them pretty regularly this year but in the heat when I need to freshen up or on my way out of the house in the morning I've been using Lush's Ro's Argan Gourmet Soap. I'm not really a soap person as I find it very drying on my skin which is very prone to drying out very quickly. However, this soap has yet to dry me out the way soap usually does and the smell is just divine. 

Another member of the Rose fragrance family is Ro's Argan Body Conditioner. This is used just like a hair conditioner. You massage it into your skin while  in the shower and rinse off, leaving your skin feeling luxuriously silky and smooth and smelling incredible. 

I also picked up the Rose Jam Body Spray while it was in The Kitchen. This smells just like Rose Jam bubbleroon which is a bubble bar from Lush and is so strong. It is such a generous product; I've gone days where I only use one spray of the fragrance on myself and 8 hours later I can still smell it on myself. A little bit really does go a long way. 

I love using all of these products together as The Rose Jam family has become my favourite from the Lush Fragrance families. It is sweet and uplifting and very true to the name.

Of course your sin is only as good as how much you take care of it, but it is also dependant on how you take care of yourself, not just your skin, so make sure you're all taking care of yourselves this summer. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and use sunscreen when out in the sun.

Stay safe and take care everyone! x

London Will Not Fall

After the events of Saturday night I just wanted to quickly give everyone some advice on what they can do if they ever find themselves in an event where they need help and don't know how to go about getting it. 

First of all, get yourself to safety. When you are able to do so, call 999. If you are unable to speak the operator will ask you to cough or make an audible sound. If you are unable to make a sound to let the operator know you need help, the call will go through to the Police Voice Response System. You will then hear a message asking you to press 55 if you need emergency services. This will let the police know there is an emergency and help is needed. If you do not press 55 they will not be notified. 

Londoners are a bunch of tough cookies and this will not divide or conquer us. But it is always important to know what to do in case of emergency and how to protect yourself. Be safe and well my loves.

My thoughts are with all those affected on Saturday night.
