The Face Shop Jeju Hand Cream

Winter months mean dry hands for me (and dry hair, and dry skin, and dry everything lol).

I always need to have a hand cream on me at all times because of the dry weather and also because I wash my hands a lot.

I recently tried this hand cream which is from the Korean brand "The Face Shop".

Jo Malone


Jo Malone makes the perfect presents. The packaging is simple yet elegant and they have the most gorgeous scents. I love their candles -- especially the Pomegranate Noir and the Lime Basil & Mandarin! Both makes your house smell divine. The Christmas edition gifts range has certainly caught my eye!

Are you a fan of Jo Malone?

Aussie Hair Collection Review

No, this was not sponsored (wish it was). I've always wanted to review my Aussie hair collection. First of all, yes I may have went overboard when buying. It was definitely the scent that made me want to repurchase. I absolutely love the smell of Aussie products. Ps. before I decided to review it yes I have finished using EVERYTHING!

I will not go into detail of every product individually. I feel they are quite similar anyway. Firstly as I mentioned I really like the scent. It smells delicious like bubble gum! The gorgeous scent stays in your hair all day. Some scents make me feel sick after a while but I've never felt this way about Aussie products. The smell actually calms me and I like that it lingers.

This product contains jojoba-seed oil which moisturises the scalp to help treat or prevent dandruff. I don't have dandruff but I do have a dry scalp so in the winter time I get some dry flakes. I can say that the products don't aggravate it. Some shampoo dries my scalp even further and thankfully Aussie products doesn't do that.

It tames some of my frizz without it looking greasy, well to some extent. I have this problem I haven't been able to solve. I basically have different hair textures. I have some curls, some wavy, and then some straight strands of hair. Some coarse, some thin almost like baby hair, and some in-between. Certain strands of hair likes to do its own thing. It's got life on its own. I haven't found a fix for this so if you have any advice please do share! In the cold weather I have static hair (especially after I straighten it) and the Aussie products have helped control my static hair.

So in conclusion is it a life changing product? Not really. But for the scent of the product I will repurchase. Have you tried any Aussie Hair products?

Milk Train Cafe London - Ice Cream on a Cloud

Lately I noticed photos of what looks like ice cream, on a cloud, floating around (pun intended) on social media.

There are a selection of things you can get but what caught my eye was definitely the one pictured here. You get ice cream, covered in all sorts of good stuff, wrapped in candy floss. I got the Hojicha (roasted green tea) flavoured ice cream. It has popcorn, panda biscuits, oreo cookies, wafer stuck to the ice cream, and it was smothered in chocolate sauce. It is highly calorific but you know what... I regret nothing. It was sooo tasty! Quite messy to eat, the chocolate sauce went everywhere. Mostly on the floor. You can't really see the sauce dripping down because of the cloud, I mean candy floss.

Other ice cream selection: vanilla, matcha, black sesame. I think you can pick your toppings too.

Have you tried out this place, or if you are not from the UK, do you have something similar at home? I would love to know!
