Live life the henna way

If you follow me on instagram you will proabaly know my love for henna/mehndi. As im typing this with my henna'd up hand i thought i would share my process on how i do it and how to get the best results. One of the reasons i love it is due to how anybody can have a go and its all about experimenting. You can be as free as you want with the design and colour and can do it whenever you want. If i have a bit of spare time and i feel like doodling i now go and grab my henna more than a pencil and paper! 
It is becoming more popular in celeb culture with the likes of Christina Milian and Pia Mia showing  their henna hands off recently.

I love the brown colour it turns, it just seems more natural and cultural and complements the skin tone rather than the harsh black of a tattoo But hey, thats just me.


# make sure you have the henna squeezed to the end of the tube so that it comes out smooth and not in blobs

# watch some tutorials or copy a picture if you are finding it hard to think of an idea or how to hold the tube

# add oil (NUXE huile prodigieuse - suggested oil) after its started to dry off to darken the colour & give it a good finish

# add glam nails, your fave length and shape to add some pazaz!!

# leave it on for the longest time possible 

Have fun creating your henna, experimenting and remember it is all unique to each person :) good luck finding another with the same design. Also it isnt permanant so if you have commitment issues you can just relax on this one ;)

Much love,

#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?

#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
