My Skinny Coffee Club Experience: Does it Really Work?

On a random Instagram scroll, I came across an advert from the Skinny Coffee Club. The name instantly grabbed my attention and I decided to check their page. The testimonials of many individuals who had tried the product themselves was intriguing. I decided to search the internet to see what bloggers thought about the product. I came across many good reviews. Most people had reported a loss in weight after having this product for 4 weeks or more.   This product had me at ‘coffee’ and ‘weight-loss’. I decided to order the 28 Day and Night Instant Edition. Upon purchasing,…

Toners & Everything I Wish I Knew About Them

I starred at my roots in the mirror while washing my hands. Then it hit me like a brick. My hair looked tried and awful.   I immediately booked an appointment with my local hair salon in central London – Live True Vauxhall. After what seemed like a painfully long wait, the day had arrived, the day I could finally get my roots done!   I began dyeing my hair in the summer of 2015. As my hair are quite dark naturally, I had to have them bleached and then dyed to the shade of blonde that I wanted to…

What I’ve Been Reading This Summer

This article is spoiler free!   I didn’t realize how much I relied on my Wi-Fi at home until I was left without it for 30 long days. Luckily, I still had my phone service that I tethered with devices around the house, using my phone as the personal hotspot. I wanted to make use of the time I had. The lack of internet prompted me to begin reading all the books on my list.   I find reading so relaxing. It takes your mind off all the troubles in the world. The hectic life at university left me with…

COLAB Dry Shampoo: A Miracle in a Bottle

  Monday, 8.00 AM: I am woken up by the sound of the construction outside and immediately reach out for my iPhone. To my surprise, I realize I am running 40 minutes late.

It’s on days like these that I realize what a blessing the dry shampoo really is. It’s basically a shower in a can! I…

The Move: Less House More Home

Recently, I moved from central London to Buckingham, to pursue my second degree at university. I was nervous to move out of London, my comfort zone, to a place totally unknown. This move signified the beginning of a new chapter in my life. It was a bitter sweet feeling. I didn’t have much furniture of my own in my previous apartment, which made the move relatively easy. My new place was essentially a blank canvas waiting to be decorated.   In the first few weeks following my move, I waited for all the furniture to arrive as I placed orders…

Walking past the Body Shop store’s window in Dubai Mall, a set of tubs neatly stacked on top of each other immediately caught my eye. Upon a closer look, I read the words Body Yogurt written on the colorful product. I decided to pop into the store to find out more about it.

I immediately…

Superfoods and Skincare with Elemis

According to Merriam-Webster, a superfood is a food that is rich in compounds (such as antioxidants, fiber, or fatty acids) considered beneficial to a person’s health. Therefore, in order to class something as a superfood, there must be some scientific research proving the properties it possess. Some say they boost energy and prevent the occurrence of various diseases alongside their anti-cancer properties. Here is where the problem lies, most of the research that backs up the claims is often riddled with flaws. For instance, the consumption of chia seeds was initially thought to have an effect on cardiovascular risk factors…
