#TRAVEL | A cafe with positive vibes in London? ...Age Exchange

Are you looking for a place where you can sit for hours on end without feeling like you are being eye-balled by the staff that you have over stayed your welcome? Maybe a place that's like a treasure trove once you enter? Where the good times roll, and there is marvellous food to top it all off? Well look no further than this little place in the South East of London; in the heart of Blackheath there is Age Exchange! https://www.age-exchange.org.uk/

Whether is for a spot of lunch, a coffee with a friend, a place to get your work done or even just a home from home, say hello to Age Exchange. 
The home of Reminiscence, this dementia arts charity has it all. From beginnings as a theatre company they evolved over the years to become the reminiscence charity they are today, offering reminiscence group activities for people living with dementia and their carers. Living along side is a wonderful, diverse community hub which has a café and volunteer led library. Once a month there is also a book sale where the selection gives the likes of Waterstones a run for their money.

The centre also runs a lot of activities mainly for the older population to help reduce isolation and loneliness among them. Groups such as yoga, Pilates, belly dancing, knitting, embroidery, book reading club and many more! 

Its a place you can feel safe, no judgements are made and if you need to come and talk about anything that is bothering you someone will listen. At least once a month there is a table talk that happens in the café it can be about any topic like advice about wills, how to spot scammers, advice for carers and more. It shows how much that this charity cares about its community.


Once you are there you will feel the magic - its a zen place that gives you positive vibes from the moment you walk in - a hard ask in such a busy place like London. 


Lets talk the café menu - toasties, pasta, soups, jacket potatoes, salads, healthy snacks, gorgeous cakes, tea, coffee, hot chocolate, juice - free water! & so much more - the best bit about all of this though?.... all the money goes towards the charity as its a not for profit café! Feel easy knowing your money isn't going to the fat cats but back to a good cause! https://www.age-exchange.org.uk/the-exchange/cafe/

#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 honey and lathers up in to a…

#BEAUTY | Makeup Revolution Flawless 4 eyeshadows + NEW concealer

In my bid to do a full face of affordable and decent makeup, I went on a shopping trip to gather my items....and of course to grab that concealer the whole beauty world is talking about (or so it seems) so my trip was a disappointing one as the store I went to was near enough empty of makeup revolution :( so I bought this flawless 4 eyeshadow kit and concealer and intend to buy other bits like foundation, brow and lip products etc somewhere else. For the time being though I wanted to share my thoughts on this palette.
The colours are stunning, I'm actually so happy at how high street brands are really good quality for the money, I believe this palette was £6. I was drawn to the pinks and reds and of course the shimmer shades, both being really pigmented. There is a bit of fallout but mostly in the darker colours. There is a good range of mattes and shimmers and saying that also a good range of crease colours and lid colours.



The concealer which is being compared to tartes shape t…

Vape Shoreditch x discount code!

A little something new on Just Sarah XOXO! Usually you see makeup, fashion and all things "girly" but i like to keep you on your toes and mix it up a bit.  Me personally, i am not a smoker but  i can be partial to a bit of flavoured smoke  Just as a side note, these ones do contain nicotine. I think the popularisation of these kind of e-cigerattes came about when smoking was banned in public places like pubs, cafes etc and also can be a big help in quitting the smoking habit if thats what you want.
When it concerns flavoured e-liquid i think some people just like them for a different taste, just as a lot of people enjoy shisha (basically the same thing but without the big ol' pipe) so when i stumbled upon Vape Shoreditch i was  just super excited when i saw their flavour range!! Take a look for yourself here.
Flavours include - Apple pie Bubblegum Parma violet Gummy bear! Lime sorbet Peach
 & many more!
if those flavours dont get your tastebuds a tingling then i don…
