My travels in Venice & Milan

I was feeling super proud blogging the first post on travels but Sophie is ridiculously efficient so she beat me to it (sighpie). I recently went to Venice and Milan and decided to pen down my thoughts about the respective places and share some slight unfortunate stories - terrible weather and more. I'm intending to keep it short and sweet, hoping not to bore readers but I do have a tendency to waffle - if it wasn't obvious already by this ridiculously long sentence.

On a Friday evening, we took an easyjet flight from London Southend to Venice and a small heads up to those who decide to fly from London Southend - the airport is pretty sparse so minimal duty free shopping (very minimal!) and places to eat. On the flip side, you will get through security quicker.

2015 - Marvelous May Beauteque Bag Unbagging!

This month's May bag arrived while I was in Japan so this review is slightly delayed as I've tried to get over the jetlag -.-"

The theme this month was 'Marvelous May', with the tag line 'Caution! You MAY fall in love with every must have in this bag!' And in my opinion was a marked improvement on Aprils.

Beauteque is pretty new to the subscription scene and is based in the US, but unlike Memebox they ship internationally which means us folk in the UK can subscribe!

You can subscribe for 3,6 or 12 months or just get a one off bag to try things out.
The BB bag as it's known contains at least 7 full sized products, with a mix of beauty, skin care and lifestyle!

One of the USP's of the Beauteque Bag is that you can choose the scent/types of a couple of the items every week. They send an email about a month in advance where you can choose from a selection.

Currently they're running a promotion where you can get 10% off a bb bag beauty subscription with the code 'MD10'

So lets find out what was in this month's bag

Japan Travels - Day 1, a Feast at the Izakaya

Hello All!

I'm lucky enough to be spending 9 glorious days in Japan this May, or as I like to think of it, the reason why June is diet month!
I've come here with my little sister and my mum, who is Japanese and as organised as me. She's so organised she's created two schedules for this trip, a to do list and an eating schedule. Yes I have a separate eating schedule and it is truly wonderful.

So I'll be blogging my 9 days in Japan which will be very photo heavy, you have been warned! There'll be tips and reviews of all the things I've done and eaten. Feel free to ask me any questions, but do remember I have the Japanese language skills of a five year old, so won't be able to answer everything.

Necco Japanese Cafe Review

Necco Japanese Cafe
52 - 54 Exmouth Market, Nearest Tube Stations: Angel, Farringdon
Japanese cafe for sushi and homemade cakes.

Hallo. Linh here. I'm not much of a food expert but I am a bit of a green tea addict (as I write this blog I'm sipping on my hot green tea at Sophie's). So I decided to write my first blog post on some of the green tea delights I had today at Necco Japanese Cafe.

10 Days in the Wild Unbagging!

Mask Genie - 10 Days in the Wild

Hi Everyone,
Today I'm bringing to you a review of Mask Genies limited edition '10 Days in the Wild' pouch.

Mask Genie is run by Genie who is based in Hong Kong and does mask reviews on Facebook (Mask Genie Facebook). She gives her honest opinion and a great description of how to use the mask and its effects.

I was very excited when I saw the pouch advertised on the Facebook page, I'm a big fan of sheet masks and use them at least 3 times a week as a boost to my skin after a hard day at work. But the added novelty of having animal masks enticed me to buy this pouch.

So onto the review!
