whimsical-insomnia asked: I just wanted to let you know that the Sugar Scrub from Lush is meant for your body, not your face, so that could be why it was a little rough. Definitely try it under running water before shaving your legs, it makes it a little less abrasive and allows a super close shave!
OH that’s why !! Thanks a lot , I feel stupid haha. Well well, I will share that with everyone because it is very good to know. Thanks a lot !! :D
Long time I didn’t post about something else than food. I was getting a little annoyed by my own posts…I have finally something interesting to talk to you about ! Luckily I have the best girl friends to offer me gifts !! So basically my friend Tima offered me the little green bag from lush and you know how I go crazy about natural products especially for my face and rest of my body. As you can tell, I was really keen to open it. So did I when I had to take a shower :P. Ok so please don’t ruin the fun, yes you can find about it on Lush’s website, but here is better since I’m giving my appreciations hehe.
So just before starting, I just want to state that the ”bag” is a real bag ( Asian style inspired) that you can knot in different ways, put your stuff in it and bring it to the hammam, gym, pool or spa. So yea , for me or anyone else who can relate, I find it very useful when I go to Algeria or any other travel destinations.
1.Peach Mini Massage Bar
I didn’t try it yet, but you can tell it is very greasy. Since this is aimed to do massage with, you need to find a massage buddy ha-ha ;).
2. Sexy Peel Soap ( Sex appeal)
I really liked it. It smells so good and your skin feels good as well ! I find that it foams more quickly than the ”normal” ones ( I only used it twice and I already lost the shape). * I feel that it will not last long…
3. Sugar Scrub
A really good smelling scrub I find. Since my skin is very sensitive, I found the scrub really rough on me,even if my face was enough wet. Maybe I scratched too hard on my face? Who knows. However, still good, you just need to apply it gently. -P.S: I just learned it was made for the body, so never mind what I said, unless you want to laugh at me :P
4. Shampoo box
Such a good idea and it’s made with recycled aluminum :)
5. Squeaky Green Solid Shampoo
Definitely my ” coup de coeur” because I was impressed by it since I never used solid shampoo in my entire life. It smells good, it cleans well and it foams quickly. Maybe my only no-no is the fact that you might need conditioner ( natural of course) after this because the hair thickens after the shampooing; it’s not soft like the ”normal” ones. However, after you brush your hair under the shower, it gets better.
I also made a little video on my new youtube channel here: Lush Review
Hope you enjoy or consider buying natural products ! I certainly would :)
Many thanks to my friend Tima as well !! xox
Who doesn’t love brunch?
I think the best part of the weekend is when I go out for brunch… best feeling ever ! But not for big places with loud music, where you can’t really hear each other. It drives me crazy: it’s like I ” just woke up” dude, chill. Let me eat in a place where I don’t have to yell to order coffee… Yes, this is why I (
well most of the time my sister) choose less popular places, but way more yummier ones! Anyway, my place might not sound like a discovery since it’s really popular in the Mile-End: Arts Café!
You can order dishes with fancy words that you can’t even pronounce. (haha yes, we had to ask the waitress for the whole menu’s meaning…yes it was that bad…sorry we’re not that cool, we don’t know what arugula is or what hemp hearts are used for).
"Enough with the blabbering. SHOW US THE FOOD" - you might say
okay, okay !
I finally ordered my benedict eggs (to play it safe) with quinoa popcorn and pea shoots.
…and the breakfast sandwich with arugula, black beans and cheddar scone.
Very healthy choice for brunch !
