♥ D.I.Y Lip Scrub ♥


Hello lovelies :)

So today I decided I'd make a lip scrub ready for these chilly winter months ahead. I'm one of those people that will not go anywhere without my lip balm literally anywhere. Even though my lips are constantly moisturised I STILL get chapped lips in the winter  sigh :( . I have been thinking of purchasing a lib scrub from Lush but my bank balance says no so I found a few tutorials online of how to make one and just made the rest up as I went along. So without further ado this is what I did.

What you will need:

* Caster Sugar (or any sugar)
* Olive Oil
* Food Colouring (optional), I used pink
* Food Flavouring (optional), I used peppermint
* Container
* 2x Tea Spoons
* Bowl


1.) Put 3 teaspoons of sugar in the bowl. I had 3 containers to make and I didn't measure at all but the end product was 2 teaspoons to each container so this is a little bit of a guessing game but I think 3 should be around the right amount for 1.

2.) Add 2 teaspoons of olive oil. Again this is a guessing game as it depends how you like your scrub. Mine is quite sugary so its a rough scrub but for a smoother one add more oilve oil or less sugar.

3.) Add half a teaspoon of peppermint and half a teaspoon of colouring. (optional)

4.) Mix until all the sugar is coated with all flavours and oil. Add more sugar or olive oil now to make it the right consistency for you.

5.) Time to add to your container and your ALL DONE.

Its that simple. It took me about 5 minutes with finding all ingredients, making it and cleaning up. The fact that I had all of the ingredients made this lip scrub completely FREE for me and it's completely EDIBLE too, amazing right?!? It actually tastes nice.

Dungarees // New Look
Belt // Matalan
Shoes // Ebay

Hello :)

This is actually my ootd yesterday but i never got around to writing this post. I woke up yesterday and the sun was shining which automatically puts me in a good mood! I threw on my dungarees, set my hair in a side parting and let out my inside child hence the FUN photos :D

I LOVE my dungarees, they're so easy to style and really fun to wear, I don't know why :/ Although the sun was shining, which seems like it was the last day of summer looking out at the rain from snuggled in my bed with hot chocolate right now, It wasn't warm enough to go bear legs. The tights are back!

I had a busy day yesterday and this outfit was so comfy but still stylish. I went to visit my Nanny for tea and cake, then to visit my brother for a catch up and then I played 'come dine with me' and cooked pasta for my friends, which if I may say so myself was scrummy.

Hope you all had a fun Saturday and a wonderfully lazy Sunday catching up on LFW of course :)

*Kuala Lumpur*

So this summer I spent a wonderful  almost 3 weeks in Kuala Lumpur with my boyfriend. I am lucky enough to have a mother that works/lives there so accommodation was FREE. It was SO nice to see my mother, as I have been in Spain for a year, I haven't seen a whole lot of her and what better place to reunite than in Malaysia. Being there for 3 weeks I could ramble and ramble about everything I did but i'll keep it short and sweet and just mention the main things.

Firstly, anyone planning on visiting Kuala Lumpur I would advise you to stay for only a few days as after the Petronas Towers and the amazingly cheap shopping there isn't a whole lot else to do there.

Petronas Towers
The Petronas Towers are so beautiful and can be seen almost anywhere you go within the city. They are so shiny it is hard to express how AMAZING they are to see in real life. Being the largest twin towers in the world and having the highest double decker sky-bridge it is a fantastic experience to climb. The sky-bridge actually has a 12 inch gap from the building to allow it to move in strong winds which is quite scary to be told when you're about to walk on it, thankfully it was a lovely day. After visiting the sky bridge we went to the very top of the towers where the views of the city are breathtaking. I would definitely recommend this visit to anyone heading to Kuala Lumpur. The best views of the towers can be seen from Traders Hotel sky bar which is free to enter and a whole other experienced in itself.

Petaling Street

My FAVOURITE thing to do in the city was shopping in Petaling street market. For anyone that doesn't know this is where you can purchase all things designer!! Fake of course but such good quality no-one could tell. For anyone visiting here is a rough price list;

Bags - RM 80 - RM 100 (£16 - £20)
Sunglasses - RM 25 - RM 35 (£5 - £7)
Hats - RM 25 (£5)
Purses - RM 25 - RM 30 (£5 - £6)

There are also so many malls to visit I couldn't count. Most have the same shops but they also have their own reasons to visit, for example in Berjaya Times Square there is a theme park!!

Banana Leaf

Best Tandoori Chicken in the world!! 

The main reason I would go back to Kuala Lumpur is definitely for the food. I had the nicest food I have ever tasted here and it was unbelievably cheap. My favourite place was an Indian called Devi's corner. When seeing the place you might be put off as it is nothing fancy but they serve the most amazing Indian I have ever had, even my mother agreed and she lived in India for a year. The three of us had so much food we couldn't finish it and the entire bill, drinks included, came to RM33, that's just under £7!!! It is definitely worth a visit you will not be disappointed.

If any of you are visiting and would like to ask any questions I would be more than happy to share my thoughts and experiences, so either contact me by email which is displayed in my profile or just comment below :)

I hope you've enjoyed reading about my experience and I hope it's now a place to add to your bucket list if it's not on there already.
