A coffee body scrub you really need from Soma


You guys know I am a massive coffee fan, and drink copious amounts, but I had never tried a coffee body scrub before, I know right, I'm not sure why either. I like a scrub as much as the next person but can sometimes find them a little harsh and drying, so wasn't expecting much different with the Soma* one, but boy was I wrong!

I have never used a more moisterising scrub, ever!

Soma coffee scrub review
 Quite a statement I know, but this scrub leaves my skin feeling so moisterised, I mean seriously moisterised. Soma coffee scrub not only contains ground robusta beans to buff the skin but also almond oil to really penetrate adding much needed vitamin E, to soften and soothe dry skin.
The packaging is practical and sleek and is resealable making it perfect for taking in the shower. Once opened the scrub smells amazing, not only of coffee but a hint of sugary vanilla, what more can you want from your shower in the morning.
Soma coffee scrub review
Soma is a small business available to purchase on Etsy, who hand make the scrubs to order, meaning they contain only natural ingredients. so not only are you purchasing a gorgeous natural product you also supporting a small business.

Soma coffee body scrub is available to purchase on Etsy for £9.95

Lifestyle - My Dining room makeover


Hey you guys, you may of seen my incoherent ramblings on Twitter about my recent decorating en-devour, my dining room, now the term dining room makes it sound grand, it's not, the room is fairly small and for some reason when the room was last decorated 8 years ago I thought it was a good idea to have it wallpapered, mmm hindsight is a wonderful thing. 
Despite being at the front of the house with a good size window the room needed brightening up, so that wallpaper had to go, and if you have ever stripped wallpaper you will know it is a massive pain in the arse to remove, and this task alone nearly broke me........

Now the room is light, bright, clean and fresh, its been decluttered and now feels like a calm relaxing room to enjoy my morning coffee and our family meals of an evening.


So what did I do 

After the room was prepped, ie wallpaper stripped and walls wiped down, I set about painting I went for brilliant white on the ceiling, a white satin on the woodwork and radiator and the walls I choose a gorgeous pale grey shade (White Petal), so I could really show off the artwork I had chosen for the room. Now we are on a budget so choose all out paint from B&Q own paint range, and we where not disappointed despite being reasonably priced the paint is excellent quality and was easy to apply, so I would highly recommend.

I decluttered my dresser it now displays things I love including pieces we have inherited and old family photo's, of course I added a modern touch with the lightbox and fairy lights my style is quite eclectic, I like old a new to sit side by side.
Now for the element that really makes the room in my opinion, the prints I have chosen from Desenio. I have seen a few accounts on instagram sharing prints they chose from Desenio, so being the easily influenced person I am, I took a look, I must admit it took me bloody ages to narrow down which prints to buy as there are literally hundreds of designs to choose from. In the end I went for a black and white theme to complement my colour scheme, and I cannot tell you how pleased I am with the end result I love how they look and how the room now feels, If you are looking for some prints check them out.

Marc Jacobs highliners reviewed

I recently received my first Voxbox since signing up to the @influenster app, and I was pretty chuffed to be selected to try some Marc Jacobs highliners, having never tried anything from the brand I was excited to get using them.

The Marc Jacobs matte highliners are gel eye crayons, they come in 12 shades from black to vibrant pink and blue shades, they are richly pigmented and glide on like a dream. The collection is very 80's inspired helping you to recreate the vibrant looks of the decade. Once applied the crayon takes 15/20 seconds to dry so if you are planning to blend it out do it quick cause once the highliner dries it ain't going know where, it's there for the day. Talking of blending out, the creamy formula means it blends a dream if you want to create a smokey eye. They also work beautifully in the water line or as a prefer on the lower lash line.

I have two shades (pop)ular a vibrant pink*, and Pink of me*, a paler muted pink shade, of the two (pop)ular is my favourite, and I have basically worn it none stop since I got it, I love wearing it with my Too faced sweet peach palette, I think the shades really compliment each other and help to make my green eyes pop. I must admit I have never worn anything this bright on my eyes, and never thought I would, but I am converted.
