REVIEW: BRAUN SILK EPIL 7

This review is sooooo over due! I know I said I wouldn't epilate again, due to my first experience. If you haven't read it, you can read it here. However I was speeched about the Braun Silk epil 7 and I was very reluctant to try the epilator. I was sold when I was told that it can be used in water, and that it will not be so painful.
I was excited to try it, as this may become my new method of hair removal * excited*

This is what comes in the box:



1 x Braun Silk-épil Xpressive Pro 7681 Rechargeable Wet & Dry Epilator
1 x Efficiency Pro cap
1 x underarm cap
1 x shaver head
1 x trimmer cap
1 x facial cap
1 x packet Olay pre-epilation wipes
1 x bag
1 x charger

So I took the epilator out the box and charged it up little, ran myself a nice bath, and began epilating. I can so, its so painless when its done in the water, I couldn't believe it. The quality is so much than the Remington smooth and silky epilator, and removes hair so much quicker. I really like the fact that this epilator has a light, which helped me to see exactly how quickly it removed hair, and also to see the targeted areas. This is now my go to epilator and wouldn't trade it for the world. Smiles all round for this product :D.

FRESH 'FUMES: BEYONCE HEAT, CALVIN KLEIN BEAUTY, AND LOVE BY CHLOE

I was invited to a bloggers event on Thursday. I actually enjoyed myself, and met up with other familiar bloggers, and those I have never discovered before. The PR girls were really lovely! I am not going to talk about every single product there, as it would be a blog, it would be a book lol!

The fragrances that stood out for me were of course Beyonce Heat, Calvin Klein Beauty, Love by Chloe, and surprisingly Intimately Yours by D V Beckham to name a few.


Beyonce's Heat Calvin Klein Beauty, and Love by Chloe  are super new, and due to be released, and I'm loving them!


Beyonce Heat


It's time to turn up the heat with Beyoncé Heat An alluring, modern fragrance. I heard that many didn't like it, but I found it to be floral, fruity, woody perfume whilst featuring rare, sensual flowers.

The fragrance opens with a radiant floral bouquet of magnolia, neroli and red vanilla orchid balanced with a kiss of luscious blush peach. At its heart, almond macaroon, sweet honeysuckle nectar and crème de musk combine to create an exquisitely sensual experience. Finally, warm and sexy notes of giant sequoia milkwood, tonka bean and amber linger to seduce the senses.

Discover the fire within.


Beyoncé Heat
is in a sophisticated glass bottle, with the red gradient effect giving the impression of a fire burning.

Beyoncé Heat: The Campaign

The television ad, directed by Jake Nava, (my favourite person, as he is my inspiration ) visually depicts the transforming effect of the fragrance and intensifies Beyoncé's natural sensuality.  Jake Nava has directed the groundbreaking Beyoncé videos “Single Ladies,” “If I Were a Boy,” and “Beautiful Liar.” “Single Ladies" was the top nominated video at the MTV Music Video Awards and won the 2009 "Video of the Year."


Here is the video

EATERY: FOOD SECRET

I know I know this is a beauty blog, but I just love to eat. Don't you find when you make the decision to eat healthy it suddenly makes a dent in your pocket. However neatly tucked away off Carnaby Street behind Regent Street on Broadwick Street is a new eatery called Food Secret, it definitely is a secret! Healthy food heaven I call it!

The style of it reminds me of a cross between subway and Wagamama. It has a fresh and modern feel to it which I liked. On the left was freshly ready made sandwiches, salads, soups, fruit, and drinks. They are also made daily. 

I love the layout, everything is clearly labelled, so you know exactly what is in each and every food!


The prepared food looked tasty but I opted for the tailor made food section! Unfortunately I cant remember what I had, but it was great! I also had a smoothie, pure apple juice and the most scrumptious banana cake I have ever tasted!

Any time I take a trip into town but Food Secret is number 1 on the list of places to eat. My friend didn't like it much, but that's only because she actually doesn't like healthy food! To think there are people in the world like this! lol


Do you see what I mean by its Wagamama-esque?



Those screens give you the nutritional content if what ever you put in your tailor made food. How amazing is that! Great tool for all my calorie counting friends



This close to what I had, and it was delicious and filling!!



Have you been to Food Secret? If you have please comment below and let me know your experience!

Nina L’Elixir, Eau de Parfum, epitomises the true essense of moi, The fragrance represents a woman who is sensual and sophisticated.

Nina L’Elixir is a love potion for modern women who know how to play on their natural charm and have fun with it.

“A perfume should be a work of art, the object that contains it should be a masterpiece”.
Robert Ricci

FOOT CARE: VICTORIA’S FEET ARE NOT SO POSH


Victoria Beckham has the worst feet in the nation, according to a new survey from Scholl.

71% said Posh has the worst celebrity feet, followed by Sarah Brown (11%).

And 67% thought she should have urgent surgery to deal with her bunions.

These are just some of the stats gained from Scholl’s new survey, as part of its ‘Keeping Britain on its Feet’ campaign.

“Scholl has taken a measure of the nation’s feet and we have found a lot of pain and suffering,” says SSL Marketing Director Mark Critchley. “As the leading footcare expert, Scholl believes people should better appreciate their hard-working feet, which keep this country going.”

 Despite the possible health hazards, women feel sexier wearing high heels (81%). 7% of women have loved their shoes so much - that they have even worn them to bed.

Men like them too – 13% have admitted to wearing their partner’s high heels in the bedroom!

Not everyone is hooked on heels; almost 60% of women would wear flats to make their shorter partner happy and one in ten men admit to wearing lifts in their shoes.

Despite any possible health hazards, the nation only wants to buy more shoes! More than 75% want more money at the end of the month to spend on footwear, according to the poll.

When faced with a choice between stocking the cupboard or buying another pair of shoes, 30% say they would rather starve (33% of women - while only 12% of men opted to give up their rations).

And half the nation admitted to buying a new pair of ill-fitting shoes - knowing they’d never be comfortable enough to wear.

As painful as they may be, it’s a wonder anyone wants to take their shoes off. More than half the nation is suffering from cracked heels (52%) - but the toes are the most hated – 40% find them the least attractive part of their feet.

A whopping 61% of men never moisturise their feet, while 57% of women do so daily or weekly - perhaps why men 73% are simply NOT grossed out by other people’s feet; while a majority of women do reserve the right to judge (51%).

The sexes, however, are put off by different afflictions; 52% of men say they would be most put off by hairy toes; while women cited athlete’s foot (45%) as the biggest turnoff.

Of all the feet in the nation, Scholl’s new poll has singled out one profession above all others as deserving the moniker of ‘Britain’s Hardest Working Feet.’

More than half of the respondents (54%) singled out nurses, followed by shop assistants (22%), mothers (20%), chefs and servers (20%), police officers (16%), construction workers (13%), factory workers (8%), doctors (7%) and teachers (6%).

More Foot Stats
  • 70% polled would avoid wearing high heels if they thought they would suffer from bunions
  • If they had to have a bunion operation, 76% fear the general disruption to their lives
  • Nearly one third of women (31%) confess to owning from 11-20 pairs of shoes; 45% of men are making do with from only one to five pairs
  • 49% are not bothered by shoe labels
  • Half the nation is not happy with the appearance of their feet
  • 46% of men have suffered from athlete’s foot
  • 52% of women are happy to wear heels from only one to two inches high, while an intrepid 2% totter about on four inches or higher
  • The most coveted shoe labels for women ages 16 to 40 are Jimmy Choo (29.7%), Christian Louboutin (27.7%) and Manolo Blahnik (15.4%)
  • 79% would not like their feet handled by a celebrity; of the 21% who would, it’s Cheryl Cole for the men and hands down George Clooney for the women
  • 14% said they would like to massage a celebrity’s feet; again, it’s Cheryl Cole for the men and George Clooney for the women
  • 27% of Brits will have from one to five pairs of shoes lurking underneath their desks at work
  • 46% polled carry an extra pair of more comfortable shoes around with them
