Tresor Rare: Skin relaxor thermal mask

Hello everyone I hope you are well. 

So lately I've noticed my skin has been breaking out badly. I normally have combination skin but more on the oily side, I've noticed recently my skin has been a lot more on the dry side. The dry cracks are actual very viable on my face, and when I apply  foundation I feel it  makes it worse.

However, A few weeks ago I was walking by South Molton Street in Bond Street and came a cross the Treaor Rare boutique. Some of the workers were outside handing out free samples, I was handed the Skin Relaxor Thermal mask. Prior to this I had no idea that this brand existed, so I was excited to try this product. The first thing I noticed when opening the sample is the luxorouse smell it contains, and smoothness. Before applying the product, I cleaned my face with warm water, then I massaged it into my skin and left it to seat for 6 minutes then rinsed with warm water. It left my skin feeling super soft and glowy, I've never experienced such sensation during or after facial. 

      (The free sample, after I opened it.) 


The product has a very warming sensation once applied, I'm not surprised why this product cost so much, it retails for £1,187, yes crazy right? I love how it made my skin feel, my family and friends noticed a smoothness and brightness to my face. The products can be purchased online via Tresor-rare.com or via the boutique in South Molton street in Bond Street.

        (The actual retail package)
Although I do like the product and I feel it did a great job in terms of how my skin felt after. However, I don't think it's worth paying the above price because it's no different to other high end products that cost way less. I do recommend trying the sample to see if it would work for you for first. Overall yes I do love it, but it's way too expensive for me.

Dinner at Novikon

Hello there, I hope you are doing well.

My friend and I decided to head to Mayfair for dinner. I must say it's on the experience side, so if you are going make sure you have £80 to £100 per person depending on your appetite. 

We went to Novikon restaurant and bar, I must say the deco is beautiful with very cool contemporary interior. There are three restaurants in the building. The Russian restaurant is on the 3rd floor, Asian and Italian is on the main ground floor in combination with the bar. 
I really like this restaurants but like most expensive restaurants you have to book a table which you will have for only 2 hours. This is annoying because after a meal I like to chill, chat and have more drinks. Here I felt limited to be honest. 

Anyways we ordered bits and bobs such as the Singapore noodles, fried rice, sweet and sour prawns. To drink we had two glasses of Mojitos. To conclude, our bill came up to £80.  Overall I would say Novikon has amazing deco, delicious food and good atmosphere. I would definitely return.

Here are pictures from the night.

Strips on Studs

Hello my lovely readers! I hope you had a wonderful weekend. I headed to church yesterday, the weather was really nice so I opted for this gorgeous jumpsuit.  It had been seating in my wardrobe for about 3 months. I totally forgot that I had it, I had no clue what to wear,  So When I came across this I was so happy. I love Jumpsuits because they are easy to throw on, but I hate it when it's toilet time lol. Anyway,  I didn't want to over accessorize  it so I added nude studded heels to finish the look. 
 I hope you like it as much as I do :) 


Jumpsuit: MAJE
Shoes: VALETINO

Dashiki Print

Hello there, I hope you are doing well. 

Here is a look I put together the other day featuring dashiki print. It's been a very popular trend so far as seen in vouge and Instagram. Many celebrities and instagramer's have been sporting it. I absolutely love this print due to the patterns and the length.  It only comes in one size and it's unisex. It's a little big for me, but I just love how comfortable and relaxed I felt. I headed to  a family dinner so you can imagine how much I ate lol.  
However, it's available in many colours, styles and shapes. It also comes in dresses, shirts, shorts, jumpsuits, play suits and much more. 

Here is how Celebrities wore theirs: 


Here is how I wore it: 



Leather jacket: FOREVER21 
Dashiki: CONGOLESE SHOP

Vamp glam

Hello everyone! I did a few shoots last week for you guys. A lady from church who is a MUA  wanted to do my make-up for her portfolio. She is very kind for also allowing me to do some outfits for my blog. 

For this look she went for a vamp glam, which contains very dark colours. You guys know I always do my make up the same, infact very simple. So this was a huge change for me. At first I wasn't sure I liked it but toward the end I grew to like it. I actually plan on buying this lipstick.

 In terms of the outfit, I went for something simple with a je ne sais quoi as the French would say. I really liked the contrast. Some may say dark red is more of a autumn/winter colour. However, it's not always sunny in London  so dark colours are still relevant

Sky Garden


So I've decided I want to explore more places in London. I feel like I live in the city but I don't visit many places. During the week  my colleague and I headed to sky garden for lunch. Prior to this, I heard it was amazing so I wanted to witness it for myself. I believe Sky Garden is on the 38th floor on 20 Fenchchurch street.  Offering a spectacular view of across the city of London. We arrived  in via the express lift to a beautiful landscapes garden with a viewing area, terrace, cafe, bar and restaurant.

Sky garden allowed me to see London in a different view. Facing right at the shards, London Bridge and Saint Paul's. It's an incridible view, in fact breath taking and great for pictures. I had such an amazing time.

It's actually free entry for this month only. So if you want to go just for the view now is the perfect timing. Tickets have to be reserved online and you must bring ID. I must say it's expensive to eat there.  I only ordered sandwich and a drink which came up to £9.

All Black Everything


Hello beautiful people! Hope you are having a lovely weekend. Certainly I'm enjoying mine with family. Earlier on today  I headed to church, so I decided to take a few shots for you guys.

On my previous posts I've mentioned that since I've changed jobs my wardrobe has become a lot more darker than usual. I have to wear black to work, therefore I tend to buy more things in black now. Today I went for all black everything with a hint of colour. You guys already know I love simplicity with a touch of elegance. 

I opted for a long sleeve lace top, long black waistcoat, black jeans and finished the look with nude heels. To accessories I added a black chained bag and and on my wrist I wore a gold watch with a single large pearl bangle. 

( Pictures were taken with an iPhone. I apologies for the poor quality) 

I hope you like it :)
