Money Saving Spa Deals!!

I love spa. I love pampering myself, my body and having "ME TIME"
If someone ask me whether I would love to go clubbing or spa then I would
definitely choose spa cos
it is so relaxing and you get that amazing feeling afterwards. Ahhhhhhhhh :)




For best spa deals, I would recommend people to go to lastminute.com where you would find amazing deals.
I bought spa vouchers for £25 which had six treatments included. Yes, you read it right.
£25, amazing in it?
You all know how expensive spa is in UK and I was pleased to bag such a good bargain.
You can call me bargain queen LOL ;)
I had never bought any spa vouchers from lastminute.com before.
Also, when I saw that deal I had feeling that the spa might not be great cos the deal was so cheap.
But when I went there I was totally wrong.
I enjoyed my time there, staff were amazing, the treatment was so relaxing and the spa was very posh.

Spa Treatment Rooms of O Spa London

O Spa London was the place where I went for my spa treatment. It is located in New Bond street, London. I had exotic treat package which lasted for 75 mins. The package included balinese hand massage, refresh facial, catalonian therapeutic mud soak, foot and ankle massage, ancient stone massage and hasta-abhyanaga.  I was told the original price was £135. All the products they use are organic.


Spa treatment rooms of O Spa London
The spa treatment was done by very friendly women. Before the treatment was done, I was given a questionaire to fill to understand if I had any skin allergies/problems and lot of questions was about health.
The fact that I liked about the treatment was the staff clearly said what the treatment was and which treatment she was going to do first.
She also asked if the pressure was alright when massaging,  if the room was warm enough for me and also the stone used for massage was alright etc.
The spa treatment room was very quiet even though the spa is located in very busy high street.
When I was having those treatment I was so relaxed and stress free.
I could feel my mind, body and soul free and all relaxed.
I felt like I was totally out of this world in a very peaceful place where there was no stress and no pain.
Amazing experience.


After the treatment, I was given options to either have herbal tea or water. I was so pleased with the treatment. Each treatment was taken time to be done. The staff did not rush while doing treatment. I felt like a valued customer as the customer service was very good.
After spa, my whole body was so light and relaxed.
I felt like MILLION DOLLARS :)
I would definitely go to that spa again and do more treatment.


HAPPY BODY = HAPPY ME


It was totally worth it.  Brilliant treatment. I would recommend this place to everyone and also the lastminute.com. Start clicking guys, save some money and have amazing time :D
Hope this was very useful for you. Goodluck.


I wanted to take some pictures from that place but when i asked them I was told they do not allow
to take the picture inside. Somehow i cheekily managed to take pic of spa rooms ;)

NOTE: NEITHER LASTMINUTE.COM OR O SPA LONDON HAS SPONSPORED ME. THIS IS JUST MY OWN VIEWS AND FROM MY EXPERIENCE.

White Britain

Winter is finally here and we had early snow this year. It is actually very early.
Normally, we used to have snow in Jan or Feb but this year we had
snow in November :(
I guess we are definitely gonna have white christmas this year. I love white christmas cos it makes me feel like that is a real christmas :)

In a way, it is good we can take loads of pictures, play snow and get time off from work :P
However, if you have to travel it is a nightmare.
It is so hard to walk cos I get paranoid I might slip and hurt myself. It is also hard to drive and transport facility is poor because of snow :(
Also it is freezing cold. Had to turn heating up for whole day and night.

Today, I did not go to Uni cos of snow. So, instead I spend my time taking some pictures.
Hope you enjoy this pictures though it is not great pictures.

 Playing Snow :D


 Jumping with Joy...


 Strike a pose LOL




My back garden


Making a love sign...I love all my blog readers <3 <3


Enjoy winter and don't forget to keep yourself warm. Cheerio!!

My Love For Fashion and Beauty!!

I love fashion and also beauty stuffs. The love affair with fashion and beauty started at a very early age. I can't remember exact age or date which is unfortunate. However, I know how it started :D
We used to go around to my aunt's place quite a lot when I was quite small. They used to have stacks of english comics called "Betty and Veronica" published by Archie comics.  
I don't know how many people actually knows about  "Betty and Veronica" comics these days. Probably, not many I guess.
Everytime I used to visit my aunt, I used to borrow that comics from  her, who was I guess in her teens at that time.


I loved how fashionable the characters were and little did I knew at that tender age those comics would inspire me into the fashion and beauty world slowly in the future. It also inspired me to read novels and books.
 The first novel I read in my life was "Nancy Drew" and I read that when I was studying in grade 6. After that I became bit of bookworm too.
I used to make quite simillar clothes which betty and veronica wore in the comics for the paper doll I made myself. I used to have proper doll as well but what I loved about the paper doll was the fact that I could design and dress them up in different paper clothes everyday and make them look glamorous.
I wonder how many people knows about paper doll :P

As I strated to grow up, my elder sister started to inspire me a lot in this area. She used to bring a lot of
fashion magazines. I loved the whole fashion scene in the magazines from clothes to the perfect and amazing pictures. No wonder I buy loads of magazines every month.
She introduced me to loads of make-up stuffs and she used to help me with make-up too.
Sometimes, I miss her so much. Wish we could go back in time again :(
I loved how she used to do my make-up and the fact I didn't even have to do anything apart from just sitting in the chair :D


LOL...Read their conversations


People might think I might be very high-maintenance as I write a blog and do tutorials. But I am actually not.
I am quite comfortable not wearing any make up at all.
Half of the times if you meet me, I won't be wearing
make-up.
Sometimes, I just do black eyeliner or brown pencil for my eyes and I am ready to go out. I only wear make-up if I am going clubbing, parties or on special occasions.
I often forget to take my make-up off at the end of the evening. I wonder how many people actually do that LOL.

I love blogging and doing v-blogging. It is my hobby and passion which I love.
I have to admit that since blogging I have met amazing people and I am thankful to all of them for their love and support.

I get criticism too. I guess everybody is entitled to their own opinion. There is a saying "there are two sides of coins"
Likewise I guess people will always have two types of opinion, either good or bad.
Noone can make everyone happy or please everyone.
This is what I love to do as my hobby apart from reading books and studying for my Master's. So, no matter what people say I'll just keep my head up, smile and do what i love to do :D

P.S. Sorry, it became bit lengthy...Thank you for taking time to read xx

Amazing Healthy Hair With Lolan

I came across this amazing hair product when I was on holiday in Nepal. I absolutely love it and it does wonders to my hair. I am a huge fan of hair treatment as they nourish and give that extra shine needed for the hair . I believe as much as we pamper ourselves it is important to pamper our your hair  too cos at the end of the day your hair will appear how you have cared.



Huge jar for £3...Not bad..

Lolane is originally made in Thailand. The jar has got description on both thai and english language. So, if you don't have exotic language skills like me then you can read the description in english.
 If english was not universal language then we would be definitely having problem here reading the descritpion. Thank god for that :D

What I love the most is the fact that the jar is huge. The one I got  is 500 grams and it only cost me about £3. That's a saving I would say for that big jar . Totally, worth it. Now, I am being bit greedy here and just considering on the big jar ;)
But trust me the product itself works so well for your hair as promised.

I apply this treatment after shampoo and conditioner and leave it for about 15-20 mins. I know, I know 15 mins can be very long but if you want best results that's the timescales for the hair treatments to be left on your hair. Meanwhile, you can always do listen to songs and read magazines to kill that time :D




Hair treatment in three different jars for different types of hair...I use for dry and damaged hair

Most of the hair treatment recommend that you use their own shampoo and condition for better result. However, this is striclty marketing strategy of the company to sell their shampoo and conditioners :(
                            I never listen to them cos the shampoo I use at the moment is the best for my hair and also whichever shampoo and conditioner we use the hair treatment does the same job anyway.
 So, I don't see any point in using their own shampoo and conditioner.
I have been doing that for years and it works well even if you don't use the same company's shampoo and conditioner :D

 So, next time if you are going on holiday to Nepal or if someone else is make sure you get this hair treatment. It one of my fav. I always bully my sister to send me some when it's almost finished :)


P.S. If you have used this product before don't forget to leave your comments xx

Love at First Sight!!

I fell in love with this dress the moment I saw this dress. Yes, indeed it was first at love sight. Normally, I would have to try them and look for the perfect detailing. However, with this one it was perfect i.e the way I wanted. Love the detailing and the way this dress has been designed :D









Love the fact it does not look over the top and love the nude colour (pale pink) which was all over the catwalk this year.
I am pleased I bought this I think it will be always my favourite XoXo

Impulse Shopping

I love shopping and who doesn't love it? Everybody does. Sometimes, when I go shopping I get bit carried away and buy stuffs which I don't need :(  Damn, it's my impulse to blame. 

I wonder how often other people end up buying stuffs on an impulse and come from shopping trips with purchases that they didn't intend to make. Apparently, impulse buys cost women on average of £1000 a year. I read that in papers. Omg! That's a lot.


I don't know how much I have spent exactly on an impluse shopping. If I had to say amount then I guess I must have spend over £500 a year. I feel bad now after saying that amount :(
Sometimes, I just buy the stuffs just to say that I managed to bag a bargain, regardless of whether I actually need the item, which is really bad :(
 Some of the stuffs I have bought on impulse shopping has been total waste - Waste of money and time both.
 However, sometimes the stuffs you buy from impulse shopping are lot better that non-impulse one :D



From now on, I am gonna promise to myself not to buy anything I don't need at all. I'll think twice before I buy. I'll ask myself  - Is it a need or want?
I'll try to buy stuffs that I need instead of the stuffs I want but I don't need them. I guess that will make my life easier and start saving money towards something better than shopping ;)

Also feel free to share your views on impulse shopping. I would love to hear from you. I would love to meet people who does impulse shopping like me ;)

High Heels - Curse or blessings?

Every women must have at least one high heels in their closet. Yes, we all love high heels. They makes us look sexy, tall, feminine, stylish and  make the whole outfit look brilliant. I am shoe-acholic and I admit that I have got few high heels in my collection. 



Whoever invented these high heels in the first place must be highly praised for their creativeness. 
They made us obessed with them and now we spend more money on them every year. High heels, in my opinion, are blessing. They make short people like me look taller as it adds on that extra inch that I failed to gain naturally :D and the whole outfit looks totally different when you are wearing high heels. High heels are absoutely lush.

My collection of High heels

Sometimes, when I had to wear them for hours I feel like they are a curse :( 
It hurts my feet and gives me blisters which can last for one to two days (depends how bad it is)
Then, I remember the quote " No pain, No gain"
So, that is the price we are paying in order to look fab in our high heels. 
However, we girls always manage to pull off quite good by pretending that it doesn't hurt at all and faking it with big smile ;)

Skyscrapers heels...Not sure!!

Talking about high heels, I have to admit that I can't do skyscraper heels which measures eye-watering five inches.
Ofcourse, celebs who are donning those heels like Victoria Beckham doesn't have to drive, take public transport or walk like us. 
I admire people who can wear them though. Wish I could as well but unlike celebs I am normal girl who have to walk miles, drive and also run sometimes when I am running late for work and bus. I can do normal high heels but not skyscrapers.
I don't think I want to abuse my feet with them. I am just happy with my normal high heels.

At the end of the day, no matter how much it hurts our poor feet we just love high heels...No matter how much the science and magazines scream out about the downside of wearing them for health issues  it won't put us off...We just love them...They are one of the best creation for us...


High Heels = Blessings :D

It's LRD Darling!!

LBD - Little Black Dress (Yes, I have got one in my Closet. Hold on, actually I got three :D ) 
LRD - Little Red Dress (No, Never had any red dressed in my Closet)

I think it is the time now I get myself LRD.  So, finally, with all the guts, I bought one and wore on Saturday when I went out clubbing  :D

Check out who is wearing LRD at last!!
 
 After wearing LRD, I am now tempted to buy some more clothes in red . Red is such a bold colour and it used to scare me. I always thought I won't be able to pull off  and do justice to the colour. But now I am defo thinking to make my wardrobe colorful by adding some red .


On Parcha's red carpet event...Had a Fab Fab night!!

I bought this gorgeous one shoulder bodycon red dress from ASOS. I love ASOS and have to say they do amazing dresses. I buy most of my dresses from them. The size is perfect, the dress itself and the quality. So, what more can I ask for?
 I have bought lots of stuffs from them before and I have never had to return stuffs back to them. I must be the most satisfied customer of ASOS :D

After a years and years of having nothing red in my closet now I am a proud owner of red dress :) Sounds Pathetic, in it? Nevermind, red is defo gonna be in my wardrobe from now on. 


Red For Me is - Sexy, Bold, Attractive and Statement Colour XoXoXo

Going GAGA over Primark and Poundshop

I love bargain and who wouldn't love it? I think everybody would.
 Recently, I have been looking for bargains a lot cos I am going to University soon so I have to save up :D

I have been hunting down the high street most of the time during my lunch time. Seriously lunch time? You might be thinking that ;) 

I went to Primark this week and bought couple of cheap clothes and shoes. Also, couple of months ago I visited Poundland (pound shop) and bought some good stuffs for hair and makeup. So, today I am gonna show you my money saving cheap shopping spree I did few days ago and motivate you guys too.


 Knitted Cardigan to keep me warm in winter...Got short sleeve...Bought for £17


 Love the bow and the little studs ...Cost £12


 Ankle boots ...Love the colour and the belt with studs...Cost £15


Never bought shoes this cheap in my whole life ...Cost £2...Was on sale 


 £1 for 30 elastic bands...oooooo I got it ...


To save myself from rainy days ....£4...Umbrella Ella Ella Eh Eh


 Make-up sponge for £1..Whoop Whoop..


Bought this scissor and thinning for £1...Thinning  scissors decided to get lost....Can't find it at the mo :(


400 hair pins for £1....Would die for this cos you all know how important this is for me ;)


Bargain doesn't mean I pick up cheap things straight away. I am bit choosy ;)
I know, I know cheap stuffs don't have good quality like expensive ones. But, out of cheap stuffs if you choose carefully then you'll manage to get some good quality ones. Trust me :)

I feel proud that I managed to save some money...I never used to shop in Poundland and not much in Primark either. But now I might go there often cos I am going to be skint soon after I start my Uni. Oh, Happy Days!!
 
P.S.  Can't afford Armani so its all the way to Primani
