Mister tried | Lush Twilight Naked Shower Gel

This winter Lush launched a whole range of “Naked” products, that is, products without any packaging. Amongst these products without packaging there’s a solid shower gel. When you think about it, it doesn’t really sound possible, but in fact, it is !

Personally, I’m still trying to finish the many shower gels I’ve bought from Lush in the fear that they’d run out and I’d be unable to purchase them again (the limited editions such as Lord of Misrule, Rose Jam or Ponche) before they go bad, so Mister tried this new naked shower gel for us.

What I really like about these naked products is that some of them (the shower gels and body conditioners for instance) are shaped the exact same way as the original packaged products. That way you immediately know what they are. The one that Mister tried (and that I’ve tested a couple of times too) is clearly a purple shower gel bottle and it smells of lavender. It is Twilight*.

Reading | Naomi Alderman’s The Power

Today I want to launch a new category of posts on the blog, I want to talk about the books I’m reading. As I’m currently looking for a job that I’m not finding, I have a lot of time to read. But I don’t necessarily do it. I’ve therefore decided to spend more time with books, to read them, but also to share with you what I’ve read.

That’s not to say that we’re not going to talk about makeup anymore, obviously, but I want to talk about more things and share more with you, as I have already when I’ve posted about our flat, my travels or my recipes.

The book I want to talk about today is that last one I’ve read and is called The Power by Naomi Alderman. (more…)

This Sunday’s Eggs will be Florentine | Recipe

A couple of weeks ago, I posted on my instagram a picture of our sunday morning eggs florentine and a few of you asked me for the recipe. So here it is ! Eggs florentine are actually a variation of eggs benedict. The dish consists of a bread base, then spinach (eggs florentine) or ham/bacon (eggs benedict) or salmon (eggs royale), on top of which is placed a poached egg and everything is then covered in hollandaise sauce.

Little disclaimer, this isn’t a particularly easy recipe, but the result makes it worth the hassle. The main difficulties are the hollandaise sauce and having everything ready and hot at the same time.

However we’ve been doing this recipe for a few months now and I have a few tips that make it slightly easier. Though if you can find someone willing to help, it’s much easier to do this with someone than by yourself. (more…)

I tried the Eve Sleep towels | Does their fastening system really work ?

Do you know this situation when you got out of the shower, wrapped yourself in a towel, you’re brushing your hair and all of a sudden the towel unfastens itself and slips to the ground, leaving you exposed.

I guess that we’ve all tried to fill our lungs with as much air as possible and tried to make our breasts as big as possible to try and keep the damn towel from slipping to the ground. Usually unsuccessfully.

The brand Eve Sleep came out with a towel that has a built-in fastening system that is supposed to keep that kind of situation from happening. But does it really work ? That’s the question I’m here to answer today. (more…)

Lush Diary #55 | Think Pink

While the Lush Summit is in motion in London (think of it as the biggest bath bomb fair where Lush present their new launches for the year to come) I’m back to talk to you about a gorgeous bath bomb. That’s right, I’m not going to keep it in any longer, it truly was an incredible bath bomb.

This bath bomb doesn’t actually look that impressive on the shelf and it’s called Think Pink. (more…)
