How To Make A Simple Passionfruit Martini at Home - Cocktail Series

There’s something about cocktails that make me sublimely happy, other than just the fact that it’s alcoholic, I think it’s also the sense of occasion that comes with drinking them, and in addition the fancy glasses, decoration and more than likely, fabulous company. When I look back to times I’ve had cocktails, I’m reminded of happiness, laughter, friendship and holidays, and you can’t get a combination better than those!

The problem I find with making cocktails at home is the sheer amount of ingredients usually needed to make it like they do in bars and also the equipment. All this fancy sugar and sugar syrup, it’s not stuff we would usually have lying around the house, and it’s not even stuff we can get from our local supermarket which is even more annoying, and don’t get me started on the zillion utensils needed to make something that seems so simple.

So, because we all deserve to be able to make quick and easy cocktails at home, I wanted to start this cocktail series using utensils and ingredients you can buy in your local supermarket and make yourself – without being an expert mixologist.

Nair Nourishing Argan Oil Collection Review

Whilst we’re all feeling the excitement that spring is finally in the air (just about), wardrobes across the UK are being overhauled and big jumpers are being replaced with summer dresses. My first thought relating to this annual occurrence is YES, OMG MY SUMMER CLOTHES ARE AMAZING AND BEAUTIFUL AND SUMMERY AND COLOURFUL AND MORE FLATTERING. My second thought, guess I can’t get away with not shaving my legs any more. Come on, I know I’m not the only one here…

I’m always on the lookout for products to make the whole ‘de-fuzzing’ process quicker, cheaper, easier and basically less agg, because, in my opinion, it takes up more time than I care for it to, and I have better things to do, like scroll Twitter. 

So, introducing Nair’s new nourishing argan oil collection. Four products to make the hair removal process, easier than ever whilst leaving our skin not only silky smooth, but moisturised too. The collection is infused with moisturising Argan Oil and Orange Blossom, containing natural softening agents which can boosts skin’s radiance, sooth, nourish, detox and heal. Sounds great right?

The Best Home Workouts with PopSugar Fitness

Since starting #FitBunniesChat in January of this year, the question comes up most weeks about everyone's favourite ways to work out. Without a shadow of a doubt, mine is with PopSugar Fitness YouTube videos.

Through my life, I've owned most workout DVDs going from the beginnings with Rosemary Conley, to Davina and Ministry of Sound Danceacise but I always found them so boring, repetative and very 'dancey', so I simply stopped buying them.

It was a couple of years ago that I found PopSugar Fitness on YouTube and literally haven't looked back since. Most of the videos are in either 40, 30, 20 or 10 minutes sessions, which means you can mix and match, making your own workout programme.

Amba Hotel Marble Arch Review; Have they created London's best hotel bedroom?

Co-creation. A concept so brilliant, it’s hard to understand why every business doesn’t implement it, in some way, into their business strategy. Whilst the idea of co-creation isn’t brain surgery, nor is it a new idea, it still astounds me when a hotel (or anywhere for that matter) has so obviously used the approach to create a product to not only meet their customer’s expectations, but also firmly plant themselves above and beyond their competitors. 

The Amba Hotel Marble Arch (formerly Thistle Marble Arch) is currently just finishing a multi-million refurbishment. If you saw it pre-refurb, you’ll know it was most definitely needed, and having visited the hotel before and after, it was without a doubt, money well spent to give the hotel a much needed, brighter, fresher, more modern look. However, I won’t go into depth on the whole refurb of the hotel as I wanted to specifically concentrate on the bedrooms in this post.

Bperfect Fake Tan Review - The Miracle 10 SECOND TAN!

I will hold my hands up to admit that in the last year, I have become a fake tan addict. I went through a stage of getting constant professional Fake Bake fake tans, spending a fortune because
1. I’m lazy 
2. I thought I’d be rubbish at tanning myself – it seemed like a LOT of effort, and 
3. I was so scared of fake tan disasters with patchy and streaky tan all over the place. 

However, in recent months, I’ve been experimenting with a couple of different tans and exploring the market. Usually with fake tans, the ones that you put on for it to develop overnight are the long lasting ones, meaning that putting them on in the first place can lead to some dodgy tanning disasters as you can’t always properly see where it’s going, and if you’ve missed a bit. Whilst on the other hand, I find the instant wash on wash off tans pointless. I get that people use them for a one off night out but to me it’ just a faff to mess around spending ages putting on a tan for it to wash off in the shower the next day, is that just me?! 

Anyway, after falling in love with the Bperect brow powder last year when I visited their stand at Olympia Beauty, I was intrigued by their ’10 second tan’. I’m never one to believe the claims of a bottle and clever marketing so I had to try it out for myself.
