I thought I’d share something with you all, something you may or may not know about perfume, well, only expensive perfumes. This conversation has came up a few times, and it usually goes like this: A friend: Mmmmm, you smell good, what are you wearing? Me: Creed (could be Spring Flower/Aqua Fiorentina/Imperial Millesime). A friend: Never heard of it but I am SOOOO getting it, … Continue reading Eau de WHAT?
I picked this lil beauty up from Selfridges’ fancy schmancy beauty workshop area over a month ago – I think (could be longer, can’t remember). BITE Beauty is a Canadian brand, specialising in all-natural lip care…and apparently healthy enough to…EAT! I was ecstatic to see the BITE display in Selfridges, I saw it in Sephora in LA and kicked myself for not buying anything from … Continue reading Bite me Zinfandel!
I am rarely without my eyeliner, the few times I did go without, I was asked if I was sick or feeling unwell (niiiice!). So, from those comments, you can understand why I wear it everyday, unless I’m having a duvet day.

I was determined to find (a) … Continue reading Smooth-V

I have got to start this post saying that I HAAAAAAAAAAAATE dull, lifeless skin, which is usually always as a result of not using a good exfoliator. I just cannot comprehend how some girls can spend £X amount on their hair and nails..and even clothes but their skin is…lifeless, in need of a good ol’ scrub! I’m no skincare expert, but my ma … Continue reading Ex-fo-li-ate
Ever since I discovered Chanel’s Rouge Noir at the age of 15, I was a nail polish convert and wore it everyday, that was until I embraced Islam in 2008. During the beginning of my journey as a muslim, I had to change a lot about my everyday life, one of those changes including praying five times a day. Now, praying five times a day … Continue reading Halal Nails thanks to Inglot
