Bootea 28 Day Detox ♥

| On :
This is my second time using "Bootea 28 Day Detox" which I purchased from Holland & Barrett's! I absolutely loved it but I forgot to review it the very first time I purchased it from their website oops, but better late than never. Bootea detox consists of two types of tea, one tea that you drink every morning which is in a pouch known as the "Daytime Detox" & a tea that you drink every other evening known as "Bedtime Cleanse" in another pouch. The "Bedtime Cleanse" has a light laxative effect just help remove any toxins and waste from the body.



Both of the teas have a mixture of natural ingredients in pyramid shaped bags that really let the ingredients infuse well in hot water, which I think is quite clever and much better than your ordinary tea bags. The ingredients are pure, natural and have no preservatives & I think that is a bonus!

The "Daytime Detox" contains a blend of Chinese Oolong tea, Maté leaves, Ginger root, Fennel seeds, Lemongrass, Dandelion leaf, Ginseng root, Gotu Kola leaves and Nettle leaves. I'm not a green tea drinker but I find this quite easy to drink so if you enjoy green tea than your more likely to enjoy this, has it as that similiar herbal taste. The "Daytime Detox" doesn't have the laxative effect so you can drink it at anytime in the day. Bootea recommend to drink it in the morning because it contains a small amount of caffeine that will give you a boost & preps you for your day! This tea definitely stimulates you & is very refreshing!

The "Bedtime Cleanse" contains a blend of Senna leaves, Peppermint leaves, Fenugreek seeds, Liquorice roots, Burdock root, Hawthorn leaves, Valerian root and Psyllium seeds. I don't mind the taste of both, I think this one tastes slighl better just because the peppermint gives it a little kick of flavour. This tea is designed to help induce a laxative effort in the body naturally to help cleanse and detox your body! Do NOT worry, I have noticed when drinking this, I'm not constantly running to the toilet, there is no accidents when I have drank it! They say it effects the body 8 hours after drinking, so you can work it out roughly what time you go bed and what time you wake up. However if you can for your first try, do it where you have the next day off work, school or have no morning plans so you know depending on your digestive system, how long it takes to effect your own body.

The longer you leave the herbal bag to infuse for, the stronger the effects are with both teas, which I do prefer. I usually leave my teabag in until I've drank it even to the point where my tea is probably cold. You are meant to let it infuse for 5 minutes that is recommended on the package but I leave it probably 10-15 minutes. The "Bedtime Cleanse" I did leave my bag in until I finished drinking and the next day, I had a few cramps *not too painful* but basically I NEEDED to go to the toilet. After a couple of "Bedtime Cleanses" leaving the tea infused for longer than the recommended time them cramps don't appear on me anymore.



"Bootea 28 Day Detox" also comes in a 14 Day package for those that want to try it first or don't want to detox for long time. I would recommend this detox tea & I also think that this brand is probably one of the best & really does work. I felt nervous about taking the "Bedtime Cleanse" but there is nothing to be scared about, the effects are not horrible in the slightest, it just helps your digestive system alot better. A quick tip, do drink plenty of water or fluids throughout the day to keep yourself hydrated especially when your cleansing & detoxing because it helps flush your body.

You can purchase the Bootea 28 Day Detox at Holland & Barrett's or their official website, where you have more options to buy products individually rather than a set!

How you tried Bootea or any other "Detoxing" teas?

Fresh New Nails ♥

| On :
Nearly weekend! I don't usually do many of these posts but I adore my nails that I had done the other day by a local salon, I thought I would do completely the opposite of what I normally have and play safe. I know your probably wondering looking at the pictures how safe can you get if your nails are nude! Well.. I usually just have clear tip acrylic and then a top coat or white tip acrylic and top coat. A bit boring if you ask me so I needed switch it up a bit. I had clear tip acrylic with a DND gel on to which is a light pink colour and on my ring finger another DND gel that made the gold glitter fade. The length is alot shorter than what I would normally go for but it didn't realise how easier it is to do things at the length I have now and still have pretty nails.

GUESS Nude|Stone Noted Crossbody Bag ♥

| On :
A trip to Cheshire Oaks is a hit and miss! If some of you don't know where or what is Cheshire Oaks, well to keep it short and simple, it is "shopping park" that is full of designer outlet stores. You can get gorgeous designer\high street clothes or beauty products for small £££! My favourite place to shop however there has been so many journeys to Cheshire Oaks where they isn't anything to purchase but I keep going because it always changes and I do find little bargains like this beautiful GUESS stone "Noted Crossbody" bag! I absolutely love it and the reason why I believe it was a good purchase is because I needed a small bag in my collection that I could use day to day when I can't be bothered walking around with a huge shoulder bag that weighs me down haha!

The detail on this bag is plain and simple. It is ideal to travel around with and it is quite spacious inside to carry your favourite lipstick, bronzer, brush, purse, perfume & in my case my epi pen aswell. It is lightweight and a lovely nude-ish, stone colour that matches pretty much 2/3 of my wardrobe haha. I can't remember the exact price it should of been, but I know it was around £90+ mark but I bought it at only £47! If that's not a bargain, then I don't know what is haha!

Jordans Westbrook 0 ♥

| On :
Always wanted to own a pair of Jordans but never seen some I really liked or if I did they were most probably out of stock so I give up hunting. "Woooo!" I finally find some on my journey to the Nike store and now I own a pair of Jordans & they are gorgeous, comfy and have me written all over them. The crazy bit about it, is that these ones are actually MENS haha, don't worry I knew that when I bought them, just made sure I tried the sizes and found one that fit perfectly! I have a few Men's trainers haha, if they look good, don't look like clown feet on me and they fit then why not! Nike have really good trainers for men, so if I can snatch up a pair for my collection, then I will haha! With these being "nude", lightbone white I can get away with it looking like their for ladies but I have my secrets ahah!

These were the first signature model Jordans for Russell Westbrook who is infact a basketball player for Oklahoma City Thunder! They are sleek and simple with minimal design which I really like about them. Premium leather with exotic embossed details for that sleek touch. These Jordans are flexible, solid and good quality & infact I'm happy with this little purchase, thanks to my boyfriend!

Garnier Skincare Regime ♥

| On :
My skin needs a good looking after & needs TLC every day. I'm dry on some days, sensitive & irritated another and then I might be lucky to have a normal day. However I have found my TLC skincare regime, that is quick, easy and moisturising. I've noticed I always go back to Garnier when my skin is really struggling and needs the gentle things. I'm going to tell you exactly what I do with what product & when I use it in what order! Sounds good right!

If I wear quite a lot of makeup then I try and get as much off as possible with the "Garnier Micellar Extra Gentle Cleansing Wipes" because they are so gentle and kind to my skin, I don't mind using makeup wipes to remove it. The wipes are soft & thick and soaked with the Micellar water, there is no need to rub agressively to remove makeup which is a good thing for my unpredictable skin. It is also good for lifting dirt and impurities. These are a very good alternative if your too lazy to mess about with cotton pads and Micellar water.

"Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water" is heaven to my skin! I use this to remove any existing bits of makeup that I've missed using the wipes, general cleanse before and after my day or if I have tiny bit of makeup on during the day. It leaves my skin perfectly cleansed, refreshed and glowing, don't think I could ask for anything else. It really soothes my skin & that's why I enjoy using it so much. I always purchase the small bottle because I am usually on the go and it is easier for me to carry. Using this I soak the cotton pads, start with my eyes and gentle slide the cotton pads through my lashes, & then soak another cotton pad to cleanse my whole face, perfecto.



"Garnier Simply Essentials Soothing Vitamin-Enriched Toner", a bit of a mouthful haha! I stayed away from toners for quite a while but thought I would try this one because "Vitamin-Enriched" sold me ha! I use this twice a day preferably in the mornings before I apply my moisturiser & makeup & at night to really clean out my pores and any lingering dirt. I noticed after a couple of days that my annoying dry patches disappeared & leaves my skin soft and supple!

Last but definitely not least because this part really is a "must-do" in my skincare regime is "Garnier Moisture+ Nourish", even the product name sounds moisturising. As I was saying before my skin is fairly dry and sometimes can be super dry that it feels tight so I really need a moisturiser that will save the day, which was infact this one! I only have to apply a tiny amount to cover all my face and I notice my skin feels much more hydrated and nourished. This moisturiser is a God's send because my skin feels soft, plump and nourished ALL day!



Thanks Garnier!
