Boujies London

Chelsea Flowers

I have raved about these candles before and I will continue to do so until everybody knows about them! Boujies London is a fabulous company with a wide range of beautiful candles – both to look at and smell too!

This summer to tie in with the flower shows of the season, they have realeased a new fragrance “Chelsea Flowers”. This fresh, floral fragrance is a delight to burn and the scent lingers throughout your home for hours after the flame has been extinguished.

Dynamo Pepsi Max

Dynamo #LiveForNow

Whilst browsing YouTube, looking for tutorials on the perfect cat eye flick (shout if you know of any!), I heard about the latest stunt Pepsi Max embaraked on for their #LiveForNow campaign.

Now it is London focussed like a few of my previous blog posts, however it is probably not something you will be going to the capital to be doing anytime soon!

I am sure you have all heard of Dynamo before, well it seems they joined forces with him and sent him around London…. hanging off a bus.

The Cripple of Inishmaan Preview

There is nothing more I like than to spend a long weekend up in London, and often when I am up there I make time to visit a Musical or two. One that has recently caught my eye is entitled “The Cripple of Inishmaan”.

Due to  return to the West End at the Noel Coward Theatre for 12 weeks only, the comedy “The Cripple of Inishmaan” is a dark comedy by Martin McDonagh, featuring Daniel Radcliffe, and will be running until the 31 August.

Most commonly known for his role in Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe has since diversified with his parts in many large stage productions in both the UK and US.

Unusual Treatments

I recently came across information from MyVoucherCodes regarding beauty procedures that women in the UK, aged 30 and over, would be willing to try in order to look younger.

The results are shocking, and after questioning others on Twitter, it feels that other think so too. Just take a look at the results of which treatments the 2,173 women would be willing to endure:

Placenta face masks – 45%
Bee venom – 41%
Vampire face masks – 39%
Leeches – 38%
Sperm facial- 30%
Bird poo facial – 25%
Cryotherapy treatment – 21%
Cactus massage – 19%
Urine therapy – 15%
Solid gold facial – 14%

Now, I don’t know about you but when I visit the spa or a beauty therapist I am looking for a relaxing time to unwind. With scented candles and equally as nicely scented products. But when it comes to the majority of the above I just can’t see how these treatments would be enjoyable?

But would you be willing to ignore that, and the ingredients of the products involved, if the results were good enough?

I for one certainly won’t be putting leeches on my body or placenta on my face anytime sooner!

Freeport Braintree Review

About 45 minutes away from where I live is an outlet shopping centre called Freeport Braintree. I have been here many times in the past and have always come away feeling pleased with my purchases. Freeport Braintree has a wide range of shops from Cadburys to the Body Shop, Jaeger to Hollister. There really is something for everyone and you won’t be disappointed.
