#HEALTH | Getting your vitamins with Natures Well (Halal)

Normally im not a big fan of vitamins, not just because normally they come in some kind of capsule form and i sometimes feel like the percentage of actually getting any of the goodness it very low to what you would get if you ate the right amount of veggies and fruit.
That being said i  thought i would give these ones a go because not only are the chewable but also because i have had a few bouts of illness so close together, it wouldnt do me no harm to just try and see what comes of it.
They are from Natures Well which is a brand that specialising in halal supplements. This means the product has no alcohol or pork in. 

It is worth having a browse through the vitamin list to see if there are any that you may think could be suitable for your needs as they actually have a very wide range of them! I choose the Vitamin C tabs because i feel like i needed the nourishment and to restore that particular issue after being ill.

Why these vitamins are for me rather than those from the local shop?
  • Major vitamin brands usually contain gelatine and animal based ingredients, specifically pork and pig sources
  • Major vitamin brands usually contain alcohol / ethanol
  • “Suitable for Vegetarian” products are not permissible for Muslims as many contain alcohol and non-halal sources
  • All Natures Well™ Laboratories and production facilities are certified HMC Halal (pork, animal based ingredients and alcohol free)
The facts above are probably the main reason i feel more at ease taking these supplements than i would those you can buy cheaply in a supermarket. Not only that but the company also donate 10% of profits to charity. Which i think is a real bonus, its a great way of giving back and makes me so happy that brands would do something so selfless.

10% of Profits to Charity, Natures Well has made an unprecedented pledge to donate a minimum of 10% of our profits to various charities every year, (Zakat & Sadaqah)

How did i get on / taste?

You get 60 tablets in this pot.
I take a tablet each day or ever other day and the taste isnt sour or just a horrible taste, it is an orange favour and i just simply chew it and its gone! Now i have been taking them for a few weeks now and i cant say its a change i will notice like weight loss for example, but i do believe it is giving me the vitamin C i need in a small dose which i dont also get from food (we all have those weeks where we just pig out ,, right?!)! It hasnt giving me a zing of energy but i do feel if i am at work (a very fast paced job)  i can go on my break at a later time as my energy isnt so lacking as it was before. Im also drinking more water so that may also help!

What are your thoughts on vitamins?

#BEAUTY | SBC gels

One of my favourite ingredients for my skin, especially dry skin is manuka honey. So i tried out some of the honey products from the SBC Gels and havent stopped using them. They have replaced my usual products. So lets have a product break down! The manuka honey and orange blossom scrub has really fine bits in it which are very helpful for exfoliating, but as a they are super fine it is a lot more nicer to  use than some products that have the larger exfoliating bits in them!   Manuka honey & orange blossom body butter - as you have guessed by the name this is a body butter! They dont tend to be my go to product as i dont really like the consistancy. I love the smell of this, its so fragrent. After i have used the shower wash i either use this or the gel to get me some soft soft skin! These two are my favourite from the honey selection. There is the bath and shower gel (on the left) and the skincare gel . The bath and shower gel smells so strongly of hone

#TRAVEL | Liverpool

Its been a month since I visited Liverpool for the first time, its only right that I share my trip :) First of its a very friendly place, but I have come to learn that most places apart from London are....sorry London but its true.  I stayed for 2 nights and 3 days and I would say that it was enough time to explore the main parts of Liverpool and get a vibe for it. Im happy that I can now sing "ferry across the mersy" and constantly shout.. I've been there! I've been there! Its the little things that make it worth it aha Im a sucker for being near water and also in the city centre and the hotel I stayed which was called the tune hotel was the perfect walk away from the river as well as the city. A 5 min walk to the famous Cavern Club. Museums are a plenty and I visited them all! My fave being the museum of Liverpool, lots of interactive fun things to do and to learn. I would recommend taking a part of the day to go on the bus tours o
