On the Blog: Beauty Regrets of 2016

We all have a few regrets in life right? How about in 2016? This year I didn’t buy a lot of luxury products, just high street branded products that are for regular use. Below are some of the more regretful purchases that I made in […]

Foodery Ready Meals

Foodery Ready Meals

Despite not being a fan of conventional ready meals, I was so excited to try these ready meals by Foodery UK. Firstly they’re fully halal and secondly the bright and colourful packaging is so enticing that I couldn’t wait to heat them and give them […]

Halalnivore Gourmet Meat

Halalnivore Gourmet Meat

A few months ago I met the Halalnivore team at the London Halal Food Festival. The buzz around their stall and enthusiasm stood out from other businesses and as promised Halalnivore sent me a starter box for reviewing. What is Halalnivore? Halalnivore are a gourmet halal meat specialist who deliver […]

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

I have really weird skin, makeup just comes off me. My battle with any type of makeup is keeping it on. I know I’m not alone in this as there are so many brands of primers out there but generally nothing lasts on my face […]

Trichotherapy by Philip Kingsley (Updated)

Trichotherapy by Philip Kingsley (Updated)

Losing hair is an awful thing to go through especially for women. Despite trying various products (more posts to come on this!) nothing has provided a long term solution so far. I was sent the Philip Kingsley Trichotherapy Regime for reviewing and seeing if it […]

Egyptian Magic Cream

Egyptian Magic Cream

Having complicated skin, mostly dry then sometimes greasy and also acne prone, finding moisturisers is not an easy task for me. A friend told me about this ‘cream’ years ago and I must admit I was dubious at first. Egyptian Magic Cream sounds so gimmicky doesn’t […]

Philip Kingsley Shampoo and Conditioner

Philip Kingsley Shampoo and Conditioner

After suffering with hair loss and generally tired looking hair, I was desperate to try a new shampoo to give it some oomph. I have very dry hair, quite typical for south Asian hair so always looking for a moisturising shampoo that will add some […]

I was sent some chocolates to review from a small new company Aluva who create halal, hand made chocolates. Halal — meaning free from alcohol and using halal animal derivatives. The company is also approved by the Halal Monitoring Committee (HMC). The chocolates came in nice […]

Barny Cake Bars

Barny Cake Bars

I was sent two packs of Barny bears to try out on my children (aged 8,6 and 2). When they arrived my 8 year old son was hesitant as he doesn’t like anything with guey/saucy centres! I insisted so he tried the chocolate flavour one. He […]

Jelly Bears Vitamins for Kids

Jelly Bears Vitamins for Kids

Jelly Bears Vitamins for Kids I was sent three packs of Jelly Bears to try on my children aged 7 and 5. When I showed them the 3 boxes of vitamins they could hardly contain their excitement. The packaging is so colourful and appealing, that […]

Bis-Bas Arabian Cooking Sauces

Bis-Bas Arabian Cooking Sauces

I’m generally not keen on cooking sauces having tried lots of them when I was first learning to cook many moons ago. They are usually bland and have a shop-bought consistency to them, and a kind of appearance that makes them look like they’ve come […]

Lick – Frozen Yogurt Review

Lick – Frozen Yogurt Review

If you are anything like me, then dessert is as important to a meal, as a starter-if not more. Sweet cravings are really hard for me to resist, and it’s where I have little self control. So when I heard about Lick frozen yogurt being […]
