Plastic State of Mind

Plastic bags can cause so much harm to the planet and all who live on it, including humans and animals. It's so easy to carry a reusable bag in your handbag. One of mine actually only costs 49p from Holland and Barrett.

Une Skin Matt foundation

Remember that time I reviewed the Une Skin Glow foundation and I found it too light to give enough coverage? Well, since then they have released Skin Matt foundation, which I have been using for over a month and I won't delay reviewing it any further.

The consistency of the foundation is pretty much the same as Skin Glow (light and runny) except it is a teeny weeny bit thicker. When applying it, I find that it spreads quite easily because of how thin it is. At first, I noticed that it dries up fast and can look patchy if not blended quick enough. But overtime, I realised that, just like Skin Glow, you only need to use a small amount. If you use too much foundation then it will look patchy.

Once applied and dry, it gives a matt powdery finish. The good thing about this is that it stops my face from looking shiny. Because I have a combination skin type, it can make certain parts of my face look a little dry so I make sure that I apply moisturiser on these areas first. I can't use powder most of the time because of my skin type so this foundation is a good substitute.

One of the most important features I was hoping for Skin Matt to have is to give enough coverage, especially around the eyes. I was happy to find that I was so pleased with how well it covered any flaws. It was very surprising considering how light the foundation feels.

One of the problems I experienced with Skin Glow is that it rubs off easily. As Skin Matt dries to a powdery finish, it doesn't rub off unless I wipe my face. Other than that, it stays on all day long without even a primer or powder. That doesn't mean that it is difficult to remove either. Soap and water is enough to wash it all of at the end of the day.

At first, I thought that £12.49 is a bit much for a foundation but considering you only need to use a small amount, I would considerate it good value for money. Look out for any instore offers as they have lots of them. At the moment you get a free Green Beauty Bible when you spend £15 on Une products at Boots.

Overall, I am really happy with this foundation. It really does give a flawless finish that lasts all day. This has replaced the Skin Glow foundation in my make up bag for the moment, which I think I'll reserve for summertime.

If you're thinking of trying it, you'll find it at Boots and Superdrug along with the rest of their range.

Give your unwanted clothes a loving home and make money too!

Every year, British consumers buy 2 million tonnes of clothes. 1.2 million tonnes of this goes to landfill! source

Crazy, right?!! But unfortunately this is the truth. As you all know, this can be reduced by donating unwanted clothes to charity. But if you're strapped for cash, then it's perfectly ok to make some money out of these unwanted items.

I won't drag on about ebay as if it's the latest innovation to hit the world wide web. But that is one option if you want to sell cheap items. But if you have pricier items to sell, such as designer or vintage, you probably won't expect to get yourself a good deal on ebay. It's like selling Gucci at a jumble sale. A better idea is to sell them on Asos Marketplace.

Asos marketplace is where you can sell (or buy) clothes. You simple upload a photograph of whatever it is you want to sell, write a description and name your price! Then sit back, maybe make yourself a cup of tea and your item will be viewed by fashionistas around the globe.

You don't even have to pay to list your item. Any fees are taken after you have made any money.

If you're looking to turn this into a business then, if you're lucky, Asos may let you open your own cyber boutique on the Asos Marketplace website!

So why not give it a go. It costs nothing to start!

Pots of pretty powder


Sorry about the long delay. I'm finally back with a new beauty review.

This review will be on two Lily Lolo eyeshadows that I recently bought from

Lily Lolo is a brand that makes a really wide range of mineral cosmetics, including foundation powder, lipgloss and eyeshadows, plus many more, in so many different shades. I was very tempted to buy all of their eyeshadows because they're all so pretty. But decided to be a good girl and buy two colours that will suit any outfit: black and white.

A few of their many shades of eyeshadow

The eyeshadows in the lovely green tissue paper they came in

Orchid White


As you can probably tell from the pictures, the eyeshadows are powders and unpressed. But thankfully they are covered with a protective plastic lid with shaker holes. So don't worry about them spilling all over your make up bag or all over your clothes. However, the Orchid white eyeshadow, unlike Witchypoo, seems to be clumped together so it is almost impossible to get it come out of the tiny holes. Plus the protective plastic lid can't be removed no matter how hard you try (I've tried!) so the only option is to shake the eyeshadow out of the holes.

The colours are absolutely fantastic! Like I said, Orchid White is difficult to get out of the container but the small amount I manage to get out is enough for me because it is so pigmented. It isn't exactly shimmery but has a nice glow so you can use it as a highlighter on your brow bone or either edge of your eyes. I also use it over red lipstick to give it a pouty and matte finish. However, the Orchid White eyeshadow doesn't seem to stay on all day so I would suggest using powder or a base under the eyeshadow if, like myself, eyeshadow easily slips off your eyes.

I am much more pleased with Witchypoo. I'm not yet brave enough to go for a gothic look with black eyelids so I am currently using it as an eyeliner cake. You don't even need any liquid for this. Just dab the eyeliner brush onto the eyeshadow and it easily glides over your lids. You won't need to go over it again as the colour is so intense. I can't comment on its staying power as I have not used it as an eyeshadow but as an eyeliner it stays on all day long so don't worry about any smudges.

The cost of the eyeshadows were only £5.00 each from You can also buy them from as single pots or gift sets.

Urtekram Rose Shampoo

Urtekram rose shampoo is one of the products I bought from It is suitable for all hair types and is formulated using natural ingredients, much of which is organic.

The reason why I bought this was because I was looking for a natural shampoo with no SLS and this one had some good reviews from customers. It does contain Sodium Coco Sulfate instead, which some people wish to stay away from and some don't mind.

I must start with the smell of this shampoo. It smells beautifully of rose water. Since this product is completely natural, the scent doesn't come from any synthetic fragrances but from organic essential rose geranium oil.

The consistency of the shampoo is pretty much the same as any other shampoo except it's clear. However, it does not lather up as well as other shampoos. Some say that a shampoo does not need to lather in order for it to work, which I agree. But as my hair is long and thick the lather helps me get the shampoo all over my hair easily. So in this case I have had to use at least twice as much shampoo as I would normally use, making it less cost efficient. And at £4.69 it already costs a lot more than the average bottle.

It didn't leave my hair squeaky clean but if you don't get dandruff or you wash your hair quite frequently then I'd expect it to clean your hair very well.

I found that my hair was much softer afterwards without being greasy and I was very pleased with that. Other than that it was frizzy and my curls looked terrible.

Overall, I am pleased with some aspects of this product but it is not perfect for my hair type. If you have normal hair then give it a go. You might like it. But if your hair is anything like mine then save your money and get yourself a shampoo that is more specific for your hair type.

This month's Marie Claire (includes a freebie!)

I know, I don't normally read magazines let alone write about them. They tend to be too materialistic and their adverts can be offensive to someone like myself who knows how to disect an advert just by looking at it for a few seconds. And I really don't get all this 'celebrity' hype. This one's no different.

BUT there are quite a few things that I like about this particular issue (the one with Rihanna on the cover):
  • Free fashion bangle by ethical jeweller Made worth £11 (choose from 3 colours)
  • 25% discount on Made jewellery
  • Ethical gift ideas
  • Gardening gift ideas
  • Article on Toms giving away their millionth shoe to a child
  • Recipes full of healthy veggies
  • Beauty advice especially for black skin
  • Black model gracing the pages of their metallic make up feature
  • Worry rehab advice feature
So if you're thinking of getting one, try and get it soon before shoplifters steal the bangles out of the magazines. (I mean come on! Just because it says free it doesn't mean you can rip it out of the packet without paying for the magazine!)

Strawberry and banana smoothie

There's nothing I don't like about smoothies. Healthy, yummy, quick to make...
So here's a quick and easy Strawberry and banana smoothie recipe:

Serves 2

You'll need:
  • 300ml milk (skimmed for a low fat option)
  • 4 tablespoons natural low fat yogurt (optional but helps thicken the smoothie)
  • 1 large banana
  • About 6 medium strawberries
  • 3tsp honey

Just stick the lot in a blender for a couple of seconds and you're done!

Meet my new flowers!

Keeping a plant in your room has been found to improve air circulation, remove impurities from the air and to improve mood. I just bought it because it looks pretty. And pretty things always improve my mood! With the darker nights, I need all the brightness I can get!

Pretty orchids in my new plant pot

Orchids are one of my favourite flowers. Not only are they so pretty but they are so easy to look after too.

Do you have any favourite flowers?


Wysteria Lane goodies pt 1

I am crazy about Wysteria Lane. I had bought a couple of things from their website before that I fell crazy in love with. So you can't possibly imagine my surprise when I found that they had opened in town.

Their boutique is so pretty. I literally want to live there! I want to sleep, eat and dance there! I'll try and see if I can take some pictures there to show you how gorgeous the place is. Oh, and their staff are so lovely!

So here is my latest purchase from Wysteria Lane....

Lovingly wrapped and bagged. How cute, right!
If you open it carefully then you can reuse the wrapping instead of throwing it away

The beautiful mirrored plant pot inside. Isn't it purty?

I'm planning on using it as a home for my new plant but you can use it to grow herbs in the kitchen or as a pretty vase for freshly cut flowers. It would be a beautiful gift on it's own or filled with any plant.

The pot is about 12cm high with a diameter of about 13cm. It costs only £4.99! Complete with the beautiful wrapping for no extra charge!

They don't currently sell it on their website so if you can't head down to any of their boutiques (two in Shropshire and one in The Pavillions, Birmingham), it might be worthwhile asking if they can deliver this particular item especially for you.

Keep your eyes peeled for more of my buys from Wysteria Lane. In the meantime, have a look at how I used my pot.

Dr. Bronner's Magic Soap

Following my previous soap review, I wanted a soap that is 100% natural. So naturally I went on and started a difficult decision on which of their many soaps to get.

I have never seen so much soap on one website. Not even at a supermarket or Lush!  (Yes you read that correctly!) Many of the soaps are part of the Dr. Bronner's Magic Soaps range, which come in solid bar form, hand washes and multi-purpose liquid soaps that can be used in the shower. Scents include peppermint, rose and lavender, to name a few. Even though they are scented, they are 100% natural including the fragrances. Most of the ingredients are also organic and fair trade.

Eventually, I decided to go for the unscented baby-mild soap as I love the creamy smell of baby soap. Unfortunately, it turned out not to smell like that but it does have a mild familiar smell  to it (due to the combination of different natural oils, I assume) that I really like.

The soap comes in it's traditionally designed packaging, which is 10% hemp-flax and 90% post cosnumer recycled paper. The soap is pretty big - probably about the size of 2 regular soap bars. So at £3.49 it is quite good value.

When using it, I noticed that it doesn't melt and lather in my hands. So by not melting, you'll be using less soap and it will last you longer. It does start to lather when massaging my hands together. In fact, it produces A LOT of foam (no wonder it's called magic soap) so you don't need to use a lot of soap to begin with.

When rising my hands, they felt very silky because of the many natural oils the soap contains such as coconut oil and jojoba seed oil.

Overall, I am very pleased with my purchase and would definitely keep buying from this range. I think next time I will try peppermint.

Keep fit without leaving the house

Winter is the perfect excuse to stay indoors in our warm, cosy homes, instead of working up a sweat. But there's no need to let winter get in the way of our health and fitness when there are so many exercises to do at home for the fraction of a cost of a gym membership.

I love Pilates and Yoga and not only because they involve a lot of lying down. Winter normally makes me lethargic and Yoga and Pilates have really helped by stretching my tired muscles whilst toning them. They are also great for burning calories, depending on the workout you choose to do.

I've found a great website called My Yoga Online that is full of videos as well as articles on Yoga, Pilates, dance and overall health. The videos vary in length so you can fit them 5 minutes in the morning or go for a long 75 minute weekend session.

My Yoga Online Videos

You would need to join to access the full videos as well as to take advantage of other benefits such as keeping a wellness diary. But it is really great value, especially compared to how much you would pay at a studio. It costs $9.85 a month which is just £6.25 (at time of writing).

I've watched some of the taster videos and I can't wait to start! I'll let you know how it goes. Until then, why not try out some of the video samples and see if you like it?

Feed your hair

Being North African, I have crazy coarse hair that needs a lot of taming! A lot of my family have lovely, soft hair but I get the unlucky gene as always! :P

After causing further abuse to my hair, armed with a pair of very hot GHDs, I decided to give it a little mercy and embrace my curls. But then I found that a lot of hair products are heavy and seem to sit on my hair making it look greasy, instead of absorbing into the hair and leaving it looking soft and healthy.

Then I found L'Olio Hair Food by Cioccolatina!

This stuff does exactly what it says on the bottle - it feeds my hair, giving it the moisture that it so desperately needs. Usually, after washing my hair, it goes quite frizzy once it has dried. But after using only a couple of drops of L'Olio Hair Food on my damp hair, my curls were really smooth and had a healthy and natural looking glow.

How does it do it?!!

Well let's have a look at some of the ingredients...

Sapote (organic) oil: Sapote Oil prevents hair loss and promotes hair growth
Ximenia oilconditions the scalp and nourishes the hair 
Kukui nut oilConditions the hair and leaves it silky and shiny
Rosehip oil: Rich in Vitamin C. It strengthens thin/ damaged hair and soothes the scalp
Papaya oil: Conditions the hair and imparts shine

And these are only a few of the many natural ingredients it contains.

So if your hair is hungry for moisture, then feed it this healthy cocktail of natural oils. L'Olio Hair food is truly an amazing product that I would definitely recommend.

It costs £4.85 for 30ml and a few drops go a long way!

Visit for L'Olio Hair Food and many other natural hair and body products.

Cargo PlantLove illuminator and blushers

Wouldn't it be nice to look sunkissed and glowing all year round?  It might seem impossible, especially here in cold, grey England. But Cargo PlantLove have, in my honest opinion, the perfect solution.

The illuminator in Wind is a beautiful mix of gold, copper, bronze and pink for a tanned and blushing look. I mostly use it just on my cheeks but I sometimes use a little on my nose and forehead too.

The colour stays on for a few hours before fading off but the shimmer lasts all day.

Wouldn't it be nice if we all looked soooo beautiful close up?

Puresha have a lovely video showing how to use it...

I also bought two blushers. A pretty rosy pink colour in Rose and a slightly shimmery peach shade in Peony. Both of these shades are so beautiful!



There are plenty more gorgeous shades on But be quick because some of them have sold out!

Cargo PlantLove eyeshadows

I love using Cargo PlantLove eyeshadows. Unlike many 100% natural eyeshadows, these babies stay on my peepers for hours! The texture is just right - not too rough and not oily - whilst the natural oils, such as rosehip fruit oil and sunflower seed oil, give a smooth finish. And they are so pigmented that you don't need to use so much so they will last you forever. They're a great investment and I totally recommend them.

However, if you're prone to getting eyeshadow creases, then I suggest using a primer.


Beech is a shimmery peachy nude colour. This isn't too shimmery and can be used during the day. I certainly do! I like to use it on my brow bone as well as my eyelids for a simple yet pretty look.


As you can see, Sparrow is a dark brown. I like to use this in the crease of my eyes to give more depth. Using a slanted eyeliner brush, I also like to use it under my lower lashes as an alternative to eyeliner. It gives a much softer effect than black. Not only that, but I use it to fill in my brows AND I use it for contouring all over my face such as the sides of my nose and my cheeks!


This is a shimmery dark blue shade. It is perfect for a smoky eye on a night out complimented with a nude gloss on the lips. If you're brave, why not line your lower lashes with this vibrant colour? 


Bamboo is a shimmery medium brown, which gives an overall beautiful bronze colour. It's a really glamorous colour!

Some of these shades have already sold out so go to before they're all gone!


Cargo PlantLove lipstick, lipgloss and lipliner

I'm going to be reviewing Cargo PlantLove's lipstick in Evangeline, lipgloss in Jasmine and lipliner in Pink. Enjoy! :)

Evangeline lipstick

The Evangeline lipstick is a beautiful coral red shade. It was chosen especially by the actress Evangeline Lily. I absolutely adore this colour! It is that perfect coral shade that suits anyone no matter their skin tone (I normally cannot use certain coral shades as they bring out my yellow undertones leaving me looking sick!).

It stays on for quite a few hours and, unlike many lipsticks, does not dry out my lips thanks to the many natural oils it contains.

And let's not forget the packaging. All PlantLove cases are made from corn (would you believe it!) . Not only that but the lipstick box is made up of wildflower seeds so you can just stick it in some soil and watch the pretty flowers grow!

Plus, (yes there's more!) $2 from each lipstick goes to St Jude Children's Hospital!

Lipgloss in Jasmine

Unlike the swatch and description provided by Cargo, Jasmine is light brown toffee colour and not a soft pink. So if you're looking for a light brown lipgloss and can pull it off, unlike myself, then this would be a great choice.

Lipliner in Pink

I was worried that the lipliner in Pink would be too... pink. Thankfully it is a cross between a 'kinda-dark' nude shade and a light pink, which is exactly what I was looking for. This lipliner glides on easily and stays on for hours and hours and hours without rubbing off. I absolutely love it!

Check out to purchase any of these beauties and more!


What's for dinner?

Today I made yummy salmon croquettes with a cucumber salad. Everyone at home LOVED them!

Thanks, Sophie Uliano!

For dessert, I made grilled figs with creme fraiche and honey.
This dessert is so so easy and only takes a couple of minutes.

It looks like a butterfly! :D

  1. Preheat your grill.
  2. Cut your figs in quarters but don't cut all the way through. The quarters need to stay attached at the base.
  3. Spread a little butter inside the figs.
  4. Sprinkle some sugar on top of the butter.
  5. Place on a baking tray and leave on the bottom shelf of the grill for no more than 5 minutes.
  6. Once cooked, add a dollop or creme fraiche, double cream or Greek yogurt. I used creme fraiche but I'd prefer double cream if we had any.
  7. Drizzle some honey on top.
  8. If you like, you can also throw some nuts on top, such as flaked almonds.

Bon appetit!

A cure for the sniffles

I'm really poorly today (cough cough sniff sniff!) :'(

Since I'm trying my very best to avoid unnatural products, including medicines, I'm doing things the old fashioned way by resting and letting my immune system do it's thang!

If your immune system needs a boost, like my poorly self does right now, then give it a good dose of vitamin C, which, as you know, is found in citrus fruits especially lemons.

So like they say, if life gives you lemons, make some juicy lemonade...

Fruity ideas

Looking back, I have not eaten any fruit the past week. I drank fruit in the form of juice. But eaten it? Nope! Not a single grape! So my aim this week is to eat more fruit.

This isn't easy considering I don't even like it. Plus it's winter so there's another reason not to want to eat something cold.

So I Googled around for fun and fruity ways to get my five a day...

Fruit with Greek yogurt

Fruit parfait

Fruit salad

Porridge with fruit

Baked figs

Fruit on crackers with honey/ chocolate spread/
peanut butter

Baked fruit kebab

Fruit - how do you eat yours? Any ideas/recipes you love?

Healthy haul

I get so excited food shopping! I especially love buying products that are healthy and taste good. By healthy I don't mean all that low fat processed 'stuff' (I can't really call it food) such as those made by diet companies. I mean real food made from real ingredients. With all their healthy fats and complex carb oats. Yum! A lot of the goodies I buy tend to be made from only a few simple ingredients instead of a concoction of E numbers.

Here is what I bought from Holland and Barrett today (I actually only went in for some coconut oil, which they didn't have)...
  • Nairns Cheese oatcakes
  • Nairns organic herb and pumpkin seed oatcakes
  • Whole Earth Smooth Original peanut butter
  • Sesame Snaps
  • Sunita Whole Tahini
  • Sunita Honey Halva
  • A cotton carrier bag because I didn't bring my shopping bag with me

Holland and Barrett have buy one get one half price on all items in store for a limited time only!
