Goodbye cellulite – testing the new Assome! Ultrasonic Massager
Goodbye cellulite – testing the new Assome! Ultrasonic Massager
A study shows that almost 90% of women suffer from the dreaded orange peel. Sadly, there is no quick fix or miracle cure for cellulite but it can definitely be reduced. And this is where the new Assome! 3-in-1 Ultrasonic Massager swoops in to save the day! Cellulite is a condition in which the skin has a dimpled appearance and occurs when fat deposits begin to push through layers of collagen fibers under the skin. Lack of exercise, fat and poor metabolism leads to cellulite so a healthy diet and working out helps reduce it. Over the years, I've used several targeted cellulite creams with little to no results, until recently when I've been introduced to the new Assome! Ultrasonic Massager - the first at home beauty tech system for our booties.

Sampling the Bloomin’ Brilliant Afternoon Tea at Royal Lancaster, London

Sampling the Bloomin’ Brilliant Afternoon Tea at Royal Lancaster, London

Food  |  Royal Lancaster, London
In celebration of the prestigious Chelsea Flower Show, the five-star Royal Lancaster's team of masterful pastry chefs hand-crafted the luxurious Bloomin' Brilliant Afternoon Tea. The elegant and exceptionally sophisticated Hyde Lobby Bar is the perfect spot for a quintessentially British Afternoon Tea in London. Ahead of it's official launch on 2nd of May, I was invited to sample the floral-themed afternoon tea at Royal Lancaster. My sister and I were seated at a table in the recently opened Hyde Lobby Bar, an impressive space with marble floors, sumptuous velvet sofas and a centrepiece brass chandelier.

How we decorated our living room (without spending a fortune)

How we decorated our living room (without spending a fortune)

Interiors  |  Ashford, Kent
The living room is often the largest room in the house and frequently hosts the most expensive furniture and decorative accessories. If you've just moved into a new house like we did, chances are you spent your entire budget on deposit, solicitors and removals company. But don't let a barely there budget keep you from decorating a house you'll love living in! Almost everyone tends to go over their budget when furnishing their house - I strongly suggest to invest in your sofa and rug (if you don't have carpets) first. A high quality and beautifully designed sofa will give the entire room an expensive feel and transform the space. We fell in love with the 'Connor' 3 Seater Velvet Sofa from Made.com and ordered it before we even exchanged contracts (our buying process was quite possibly the smoothest and fastest in the whole history, will talk about this in a different blog post).

5 reasons why I love coffee (and you should, too)

5 reasons why I love coffee (and you should, too)

Lifestyle  |  London
If you roll out of bed and don't even run a brush through your hair before your morning cup of coffee, then this blog post is for you! And even if you aren't a regular coffee drinker, chances are you might become one after reading this. Here are 5 reasons why you should really enjoy your cup of coffee. Studies have shown that coffee may have health benefits, including protecting against liver cancer, type 2 diabetes and Parkinson's disease. Coffee also appears to decrease the risk of depression and fight obesity. According to Bob's Arnot book 'The Coffee Lover's Diet: Change your coffee... Change your life', coffee can improve your mood, help your metabolism, boost your workout and generally help you focus better. To get the most from your favourite drink, you should steer clear of certain bad habits when it comes to preparing and drinking your brew - like cutting back on sugar and cream, buying higher-quality beans or washing the coffee machine after each use.

Kaliyoga – Europe’s best retreat for mindfulness, meditation and yoga

Kaliyoga – Europe’s best retreat for mindfulness, meditation and yoga

Travel  |  Andalusia, Spain
Yoga has a reputation for its healing powers, so it only makes sense that experiencing a four-day Fit, Lean and Clean Retreat will positively shift my mindset. So I signed up for my first yoga retreat at Kaliyoga's invitation, but not without considerable trepidation.  I remember two cautionary, albeit unhelpful, thoughts running through my mind: What will the food be like? Will I be able to keep up with the twice-a-day yoga classes? Even though I wasn't quite sure what it would entail, this escape at the beginning of the year seemed the perfect opportunity to give myself the permission to truly relax. Deeply knowledgeable about all things yoga, ambitious and passionate, Rosie and Jonji set up their first Kaliyoga retreat in 2002 after falling in love with the Alpujarra region in Spain. The climate and picturesque mountain views provided an ideal atmosphere for experiencing 'sat cit ananda' - truth wisdom love.
