With the Festive season over it is time to get back on track with our fitness routines and with that comes the right nutrition. A few weeks back I was kindly sent The Pretty Fit protein for me to try out and test. Pretty Fit is an online monthly subscription where each month you receive a box of fitness goodies, supplements , healthy snacks etc. Which personally I think is a great concept as receiving one of those a month is defiantly one way to keep yourself motivated to keep going and not give up.
Protein is an essential part of your diet especially if you train on regular basis now I'm no expert but  I know it aids your muscle repair  growth and development. Being someone who loves fitness I have been using protein shakes for a while now however I am always on the look out for new products to help me achieve my goals. So I was very excited to try out the Pretty Fit Protein what really caught my attention is how natural their products are and the fact they are gluten free as  I find gluten can upset my stomach unfortunately. 
The Quality of the Product? Think it is fair to say the quality of the Im Pretty Fit Protein is very high! Each serving contains 25 grams of whey isolate which is sugar free and sweetened with stevia, no GMO, gluten free and at 100 calories per pack this is a great product for anyone looking to loose a bit of that christmas weight which a lot of us are currently carrying ( but with a little hard work and clean eating it shall soon be gone ;) ) 
As it is gluten free  and contains digestive enzyme it is safe for any of you like myself who have sensitive stomachs . With the ingredients being natural the flavours are quiet limited there is chocolate and vanilla however I think both of them taste great (speaking from experience here) so personally I think the two flavours are just fine. The product comes in packets which is great as its already portioned out for you and makes it easy to take it with you on the go.
Overall  I am really enjoying using this protein at the moment and would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a natural ingredient based protein powder. Check them out here .
Whats your favourite protein powder to use?

After cleansing my skin I like the extra step to make sure my skin is left without any traces of make up and I have been really enjoying using these cleansing pads instead of a toner. The cleansing pads have ingredients such as dragons blood, salicylic add, hyaluronic as well as witch hazel which all have beneficial effects on the skin. Whilst the hyaluronic acid hydrates and plumps the skin the salicylic acid helps to clean out your pores  the witch hazel helps to tighten them and the dragons blood restores your skin making it a perfect combo. I find that these do no dry my skin out at all and help to keep it clear and toned. 

Another product I have been really enjoying from the Nip & Fab Dragons Blood Range is the Plumping Serum. This is a product you use morning and night before your moisturiser. The serum contains velvet flower which helps to keep your skin hydrated and contains Gransil Ep-9 which is great at absorbing excess oil this is ideal for my combination skin type. The serum is very light weight and absorbs into the skin very quickly. I have really enjoyed using this and will defiantly repurchase this as I am slowly running low on this product. 

Lastly is another Nip&Fab product from there Bee Sting range, the eye cream. This is another great ingredient packed product containing bee venom , propolis extract great for healing , coco butter and shea butter  for hydration and softness, Tegocosmo to brighten and Elastan to firm the eye area. The consistency of the cream is quiet thick however having said that I use this morning and night and don't find it too heavy under make up at all despite having combination skin . 

Overall I am very impressed with the Nip&Fab skincare products and will most certainly be trying out more of their products as they have a pretty wide range to suit various skin types. 

Have you tried any of the Nip&Fab Range?

A few weeks back I was kindly  invited by the lovely teamat Farfetch to spend the day creating my own unique fragrance with The Perfume Studio

The event was hosted at the beautiful the Hilton Kensington where we were kindly greeted with a glass go champagne upon arrival . Along with a few bloggers we were taught and explained how the world of perfume making works.A lovely lady called Bridget from The Perfume Studio talked us through the process of  perfume making and how they are put together. I thought is only fair I share some of the things were taught, the a perfume consist of 3 different scents  , these are called; Top, Base & Middle. The base is the strongest scent the Top is the initial fragrance you smell but tends to go quite quickly. 

We were introduced t0 18  scents from each category and categorised those into likes, dislikes and maybes . I personally went for a more musky and sophisticated  scent .After a lot of sniffing and hard decision making  I had chosen my  3 scents which were put together in order to create my own personal scent. You  are able to use different measurements of each smell, and can have as many scents in it as you like although it is best to stick to no more than 3.

Then came the tricky part naming it, I went for Risque I liked the way it sounded and honestly thought it was really relatable to the smell I had come up with. We were kindly given our perfume to keep and now I have my own personal unique fragrance which is pretty cool in mu opinion The perfume studio offer experiences as such as gifts which I would totally recommend to anyone who loves perfume like myself.

After we had all created our perfumes we went down for afternoon tea in the restaurant of the hotel which was beautifully presented and we were truly spoilt for choice with all the cakes and sandwiches. 

Overall it was such a great experience and a lovely  afternoon so a big thank you to FarFetch and The Perfume Studio for having me I had a blast.
