Hi lovelies! Hope you all are well!

I really neglect caring for my hair and well, now there's no excuse not to because the lovely team over at Sensuals sent me a few new beauty oils to review.
I have been using it for a few weeks so it was definitely time to report back the amazing results!

Packaging wise, these look stunning, I love how the oil can easily be pumped out without any fuss or mess. The glass bottle gives the overall product a luxurious/expensive look as it feels weighty and looks amazing on any dresser. I also love how you can see flakes of real coconut and actual Cocoa nibs at the bottom of the bottle. When it comes to using oil based products, I usually steer clear because of the mess but a couple of pumps is truly enough product to use without any wastage.

Both oils have a combination, one contains Argan and Coconut and the other, Cocoa nib and Tea Tree. I have found many uses for these too! When my hair needs some TLC, I turn to the Coconut and Argan oil one. I simply pump a few times, apply and massage into my scalp and hair and leave it on for a few hours and really let the oil work it's magic before rinsing it out with my favourite shampoo. I have been doing this for a while now and I really have seen a difference to my hair. It feels and looks alot more healthier, softer and shinier too!
I also use both of the beauty serums to moisturise my skin, especially when I have any dry patches on my face or on my body after a shower.
This also makes a good nail and cuticle oil, simply massage it onto your nails before bed. You could even mix a little bit of the serum into your daily moisturiser to add an even more hydration factor. 
You can honestly say goodbye to dry skin and what amazed me is that I did not breakout on my face because initially you would avoid any oil based skin products if your skin is sensitive/combination or oily like mine but it helps the skin to look alot more healthier and radiant too!

I honestly cannot get enough of this stuff! You are definitely getting alot for your money's worth and it's something worth looking into if you want to try out natural oils to help soothe all of your hair and skin issues.

The custom, tiny tapered brush blends easily while the precision tip shapes hairs into place.

I love gimme brow since it helps my brows look fuller and tidier in a matter of seconds when I don't have time to sit and fill my brows with a pigment and brush.

Pretty Pastel Baking













Hi there lovelies!

It has been quite a while since I last posted, I sure missed typing away with a huge ol' mug of tea and to resume my posts, I decided to share with you all a very lifestyle-y and girly post - a pastel pretty baking recipe which I did a few weeks ago. Enjoy!

So to make these insanely girly cookies, you'll need:

100g Soft Butter
125g Caster Sugar
1 Large Egg
1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
200g Self Raising Flour
A Handful of Chocolate Chips & Coloured Sprinkles
Coloured Icing Tube (I used a ready made one from Jane Asher)
For the extra wow and glitz factor I even used some Edible Glitter!
Cookie Cutters

Method
Preheat the oven to 170ºC/325ºF/gas 3. Line a baking sheet or lightly grease onto a tray.

Beat the butter and sugar in a large bowl, Crack in the egg, add the vanilla extract and mix well. Sift in and fold through the flour.

Throw in the chocolate chips and sprinkles.

Roll the dough and place onto the tray. Cover and chill in the fridge for 15 minutes. 

Lightly dust your workspace with some flour and using your cookie cutter, make the shapes then place them all in the hot oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until lightly golden.

Leave the cookies to cool completely before handling them, using icing and decorations, decorate to your heart's content.

And there you have it! Soft, crumbly and buttery cookies that will make you reach out for more than just one

I hope you enjoyed reading this recipe and try it out if you're in need of an activity on a rainy day, or if you just want to scoff biscuits with a hot beverage just like me...
