#OOTD | Shades of grey

Welcome to my live in clothes! Yes, i pretty much wear these over and over again - i have no shame when it comes to outfit repeating. The great tones are so subtle and i can easily add something of colour, like say this hat without it clashing.

I love a slogan tee and this one from Primark has it all, it is long but i can also tuck it in when i want. It is comfy and above all it has a bit of LA dreaming ...the slogan reading LOS// ANG TO SAN // FRAN

With the ever changing british weather *hugh eugh* its a nice tee to wear as if you just wear a sports bra underneath it is as cool as! But you can also layer it up with a vest underneath and a jumper on top.The joggers are some cheap ones i picked up also from Primark , super comfy and practical. This is pretty much my atire for dog walking. Is so calming being by the river, this is my fave spot.

This hat is super cute right? Thanks to BKLYN i now own such a warm trendy hat! Even though it is coming up to summer the nights are still chilly, so its perfect to just grab and pop on. (why not be prepared for winter and get yours now, it'll probably come sooner than you think *cries*)
There are so many colours to pick from! So you can change your bobble colour (also detachable)  so it matches all your outfit changes!! A BLOGGERS DREAM <3

Trainers - ASOS (similar)

#REVIEW | Oil pulling with Oshun White

I have been oil pulling again, aren't i always?! this time is is with Oshun White!
Although you may think all oil pulling is the same, this brand has something a little different. Instead of plain oil or just minty flavour oil they also have other flavours! They include
Wild cherry
Crushed Lime 

I have been using the wild cherry flavour & it is super tasty that i have to really persaude myself not to eat it :D haha!
Would i be crazy to carry some sachets in my handbag, oil pulling on the go? haha *control yourself Sarah*

If you subscribe to OSHUN white you lucky little thing, you will recieve a copper tongue cleaner. I just feel like my one is too beatiful to use haha how can i see the beauty in a tongue cleaner :D 

Aside from all the good things about the product, the packaging i also LOVE. Seeing as im always forgetting things and my mind seems to be a big jumble im so happy with the fact the box comes with the days of the week on. A lot easier to remember to take a sachet! Must be a mind thing.
The colours are also vivid and tie in with the flavour!
These are certaintly a must buy!

#FOOD | Matcha mint oreo milkshake recipe

Hello hello,
this is going to be my first ever food post! eek, but it will be the best post because i am combining one of my ALL TIME favourite milkshak recipes with some healthy ingredients. So really it is a win - win situation for us! I have been super busy with interviews over the last couple of weeks and i have now started learning arabic properly! You know i always say on twitter i want to learn arabic or turkish or italian and i seem to learn the easiest sentences and then give up haha but i have knuckled down and really started to get a grasp on the arabic language! So i suppose you could say thats why i have kind of reduced my blog posts. Then came my obsession with oreo milkshakes...i slowly starting to wave goodbye to that summer body i was working so hard on getting. 
It all began with a quick trip to skoops to grab a refreshing milkshake and then started becoming an obsession with me visting skoops, kaspas and desserts more than i visted my own home LOL, when it became apparent i couldnt always get there because of interviews and work i decided to make my own! much to the annoyance of my mum (2 shakes a day = no milk left). 

The most prominent thought at the time of making and drinking the shakes was how i could share it with you guys!! I always want  my readers to get the best things in life, and this i consider THE best. Although i started to feel guilty because i started drinking way too many and not just as a treat , which clearing is not good as it contains milk, ice cream and oreos!! So when i got to sample some of 's matcha tea which is such a superfood i decided to combine the 2 so i didnt feel so guilty about drinking it as in effect im getting some goodness out of it :) i have also been a little bit in love with chia seeds at the moment so thus began this creation! 

The recipe is so simple & i hope you yourself can make one to try it out!
(you can skip the matcha tea and chia seed step if you want a sweet treat ;) )

You will need -
A packet of oreos
Ice cream (plain or vanilla)
Chia seeds
A blender 

Once you have all your ingredients you are set to start putting them in the blender and blending them for literally 30 seconds or so!

So here is everything together, ready to be blended. As i said before you can skip the powder and seeds if you want, it tastes yummy either way!

TA- DA! A super yummy and healthy looking and tasting milkshake!
If you give it a go please tag me so i can see your creations! 
Im on twitter and instagram @ justsarahxoxo_

I added extra chia seeds on top :)

#BEAUTY | Grapefruit coffee scrub with Bean Burst

Hello hello! How cool is it that we can use natural everyday ingredients like coffee to cleanse our skin?

I got sent this wonderful smelling package from Bean Burst and im going to share with you my messy results haha
 I picked the grapefruit scented one, which to my suprise smelt just like grapefruit with a tad bit of orange and also smelt like chocolate. The coffee smell of course was there and strong but the blend of it all together smelt edible. 

Why grapefruit?

"Grapefruit Essential Oil stimulates the body and mind. Its antiseptic and antioxidant properties boost the immune system by fighting free radicals and protecting the body from toxins. This uplifting oil helps to alleviate stress and clear congested skin."

 I used my scrub in the bath (the messy option) LOL but i did feel like it refreshed my skin after i used it and it also felt nice on my skin!

I applied it to my damp hands and then i rubbed it all over my body and face and let it sit for a few minutes. It smelt DIVINE! Then i continued to rub it off and in to my skin. It left my skin really smooth and kinda of oily, not like drenached in oil but as if it had added back the moisture and oils my body had lost!

Here are some benefits of the ingredients!

Caffeine: Antioxidant. Tightens. Firms.
Himalayan pink salt: Anti-microbial. Antiseptic. Healing properties.
Coconut Oil: Anti-ageing. Anti-bacterial. Moisturiser. Vitamin E.
Apricot Kernel Oil: Anti-inflammatory. Antioxidant. Vitamin E. High in fatty acids.
Jojoba Oil: Regulates skin PH. Anti-inflammatory. Vitamin B and E.
Marula Oil: Antioxidant. High in Vitamin C. Healing properties.
Grapefruit Oil: Anti-septic. Anti-depressant. Antioxidant. Boosts immune system. Relieves stress.

I love using this as part of my skin routine as it slips into it real easy!

Will you be trying this ?
