OhSoBo is a natural skin care company creating products with finest natural ingredients. Their products are vegan friendly, free from SLS and Parabens. None of their products are tested on animals. Last week I received a sample box from them to try out the skin nourishing oil, refreshing foot oil, English Rose body scrub, their forthcoming shower smoothie scrub and whipped cream body wash.
I have just finished using all of their products, so sharing my thoughts with you lot.
Skin Nourishing oil: It’s a Bergamot and mandarin based oil with evening primrose. This oil has been designed to be used as a natural alternative to body lotion and can be used every day. The oil nourishes your body leaving a hint of sweet mandarin. If you are looking for natural alternative to body lotions then you can try this oil. I would particularity suggest this if you have a dry skin.
Refreshing foot oil: The foot oil is a combination of peppermint and eucalyptus oil which helps soothe tired and achy feet. The oil also helps to nourish and moisturise the skin. I use this at night after coming back home from work and it soothes my tired feet. You could also use this as a part of your DIY pedicure for added relaxation. I love this oil and will surely continue using this. I feel my feet are the driest part of my body and the nourishing effect of the oil helps to keep my feet moisturised the whole day. I would recommend buying this product.
English Rose body scrub : This scrub is a rich luxury scrub infused with rose scent, natural sea salt and essential oils. When I tried this is the shower, it felt quite oily so I was very surprised as I have never used a scrub infused with oil. Since I have very oily skin, I was a bit concerned but the scrub exfoliates the skin and was quite nourishing. The best part was that I didn’t have to apply body lotion after my shower. The whole day my skin felt moisturised so I was quite happy with this product. I would suggest indulging in this natural scrub to pamper your skin.
Shower smoothie scrub: It’s a natural body wash with hemp seed oil and avocado oil. I quite like this product as it has a natural fragrance and minute particles which gently exfoliates the skin. It actually feels like you’re using a fruit smoothie. This is a very innovative and great product. This is part of OhSoBo’s forthcoming scrub line which will be launched soon. I love this product. This is now part of my beauty wish list.
Whipped cream body wash: The body wash is a thick cream based wash infused with olive oil and plum kernel extract. The cream base helps moisturise the skin and the kernel extract helps in mild exfoliation. I absolutely love this product and this is one of the best body products I have ever used. The wash also leaves behind a nice fragrance. I am a fan of this now and eagerly waiting for OhSoBo to launch this with their forthcoming scrub line.
I would suggest giving OhSoBo, a try if you are looking for natural products for your skin. You can check out their website for a full range of products. Do let me know ladies if you like it x
Are you looking for natural and organic face mask? If so, I would suggest heading out to your nearest Lush store.
Last week I was invited to attend the “make your own face mask” workshop at Lush Covent garden store as part of the London Beauty Bloggers meet up organised by Rebecca Goodyear from biteablebeauty. The lush Covent Garden store has a beauty room in the basement where few other beauty bloggers and I received a warm welcome with drinks and nibbles by the lovely Lush team. While we were waiting for other bloggers, we took part in the lush #crueltyfreekisses campaign for International Kissing Day on 6th of July.
After applying Lush’s cruelty free lipstick and posting the images on twitter and instagram we took part in making our own face mask using all fresh and natural ingredients. We made the Catastrophe Cosmetic Face Mask suitable for all skin types. One of the staff member who was showing us how create the mask, explained us in detail all about natural ingredients and what products to use to achieve a healthy and beautiful skin. Since I have oily skin with acne breakouts she also explained what products I could use and I was given a sample to try out. I am so excited to use the masks, and I shall update you ladies in my future post about my experience. By the end of the activity we received a goody bag which included the face mask we created as a part of the activity. It was a great experience and was delighted to have met the lush team and discovered their natural products.
So all you ladies who swear by green and organic products I would recommend trying out Lush Cosmetics, they create amazing natural products with great staff members who would help you choose the perfect product suitable for your skin.
After the lush activity we headed to Bill’s Covent garden for our monthly London Beauty Bloggers meetup. Bill’s restaurant had a great atmosphere and I got the opportunity to meet few great bloggers. I really enjoyed the meet up and recommend other beauty bloggers to join us if you are looking to meet like-minded people.
Hope you all liked the post. I would love to hear your feedback xx.
I am a petite girl and I always struggle to find shoes that fit me. Sometimes, I get the right size but don’t like the design and sometimes if the design is great the shoes don’t fit me. I am sure many of you share the same problem as mine.
Great news! for you petite girls; recently I was introduced to Rosina Savage Boutique by Bloggers Love.

Nicola Savage the founder of the boutique is passionate about bespoke shoes and after perfecting her artistic skills for years, she started the company at the beginning of this year.

On Wednesday 19th June, I attended the Bloggers Love…Poppy’s event at The Penthouse in Leister Square. The venue was lovely with panoramic views overlooking The London Eye and The Palace of Westminster. I received a warm welcome from We Love Poppy’s staff and Bloggers Love event manager Danielle Antonio.The place was well decorated with lots of cup cakes and display of Poppys. There was complimentary drinks, manicure and make-up session followed by a fashion show.
I grabbed the opportunity of a complimentary manicure from the lovely nail artist of Desire Nails & Beauty. She did beautiful 3D nail art, painting the British flag with diamanté on my nails. This was the first time I tried 3D nail art and I absolutely loved it. You can check out Desire Nails & Beauty Facebook page , I would recommend giving her a try if you are looking to get amazing 3D nail art.
After drinks reception, the fashion show took place showcasing the beautiful swarovski covered Poppy connector sticks. We Love Poppy’s also offered a a great discount on all the showcased pieces especially for us bloggers. So I decided to treat my phone to cute little yellow bird shaped Poppy. Howeve,r later I changed my mind and lastly settled with an elegant white swarovski covered round poppy which is complimenting my black phone.
We also received a goody bag with discount vouchers and a cute bracelet.Over all the event was a great event and I am extremely delighted to have added a Poppy to my accessories collection.
Have a great weekend ladies.Stay elegantly fashionable xx.
Check out the summer look I put together for petite girls. Do let me know if you like it xx
I was introduced to We Love Poppy’s via Bloggers Love and since then, I am in love with the accessories. Poppy’s are decorative handmade accessories suitable for smartphones, tablets and laptops. The Swarovski covered Poppy’s come with mini-jack plug which fit in any headphone jack. You must be wondering what if they damage your device jack, the good news is that the Poppy’s have rubber sticks and therefore nothing to worry about damage or durability.
You can choose from a wide range of collection, designed to cater to everyone’s taste. I had a look at the “We Love Poppy’s” website and you will find accessories in different shape, colours and design. The Poppy’s are perfect, if you want to give your phone or tablet a unique glamorous look.
“We Love Poppy’s” is a German based company and has been featured in magazines like InStyle and Glamour. They are now expanding to the UK and I am thrilled to attend the Bloggers Love…Poppy’s event at The Penthouse on 19th of June.
Here’s sneak peak of some of my favourite from the Poppy’s collection:
So ladies, do let me know your thoughts and have a look at Poppy’s website here.
Did you know that coconut water is very good for skin and helps to achieve glowing skin. Coconut water is the purest liquid after water which hydrates the skin naturally making it look younger and supple. The antioxidants present in coconut water helps keeping the skin looking younger and prevents aging. Coconut water also has nutrients which is considered to give energy boost.
I personally drink Vitacoco natural coconut water everyday and feel refreshed. Hopefully with regular drinking, my skin will start glowing. Vitacoco coconut water is easily available at supermarkets in the UK. They do natural coconut water as well as coconut water mixed with peach and mango. I personally love both.
So ladies, give it a try and let me know your thoughts
I have an oily and acne prone skin. I used to get breakouts every time I put makeup on my face. I tried different liquid foundations and pressed powder but nothing helped until I was introduced to bareMinerals make-up by a skin therapist at a local spa where I was getting my skin treatments done. I have been using bareMinerals since 2011 and I absolutely love it. It feels light on the skin and you can either get a light or heavy coverage depending on your choice. It’s especially good for acne prone skin and doesn’t lead to breakouts. Since I used bareMinerals foundation almost daily, I went ahead and bought the starter kit.
Back in 2011 it was priced around £45 and had 8 pieces in the kit. Since then I have been topping up the foundation separately. The Kit includes, 2 shades of foundation, 1 mineral veil a.k.a. finishing powder, 1 all-over face color a.k.a. warmth, 3 brushes( full flawless face brush, flawless application brush and concealer brush) and a Get Started DVD. The DVD has tutorials on how to apply make-up using bareMinerals, which is very handy.
If you apply makeup regularly,it’s worth getting the starter kit. Now days they do a 9 piece starter kit which includes a face primer. You can find the starter kit here.
Do let me know ladies, if you have tried bareMinerals.

I have been browsing around my local shopping mall on a day off, when I decided to head to Primark to window shop, which is one of my favorite pass time being a fashion and beauty blogger :P. I headed to straight to the accessories section to see if there was any interesting stuff. Having browsed for 15 minutes, I was bit tired as I wasn’t able to find any stuff worth buying. Just after that, I spotted one elegantly fashionable top earring in cream. I absolutely loved them and I was delighted with the price which was only £1.50. Since it was so cheap, I decided to buy two more of them to match most of my tops and blouses.
If you are on a budget and looking to buy some accessories, I would definitely recommend heading to Primark as you can brag yourself some good stuff on a budget price.
Hope you ladies like the earrings.
