Randomness

Another random post from me! I just wanted to share a few things with you guys and get your feedback because I love hearing from fellow bloggers!
1) Two women who's looks and style I would like to steal!....
I want her luscious thick hair and amazingly gorgeous face...Petra Nemcova...


I have been watching a couple of films featuring this actress lately (I Think I Love My Wife and Lakeview Terrace) and I couldn't help but notice how beautiful Kerry Washington is! When I thought about it, she is a regular in the best dressed section of magazines and I really like her sophisticated style...
Who are your current makeup/style crushes?
2) My mum has been using a Vibrating Plate (you can get them from places like Argos for around £100) and after 3 months of using it every day, she is in amazing shape! She has lost inches off her whole body and constantly gets compliments on her new trim figure.  Mum has been doing various exercises on the vibrating plate mainly for her upper body and it really shows.  She was determined to get in the best possible shape for my wedding in August and she didn't want any 'back fat' ruining her lovely strapless dress! She offered it to me for a few weeks before my wedding so I could have a go and fine tune my figure for my big day.  I will definitely be trying it out and will let you guys know how I get on!

3) After hearing various recommendations for Japanese Green Tea as an all around healthy supplement to daily life, I am definitely going to try and stock up on it next time I go shopping.  I want to find the authentic Japanese variety to make sure I am getting the most potent and pure version of it.  If you didn't already know, the benefits of Green Tea are as follows:
  • The anti-oxidant found in Green Tea (Epigallocatechin Gallate) is 100 times more effective than Vitamin C and 25 times more effective than Vitamin E.
  • It reduces high blood pressure
  • There have been studies to show that it is very effective at preventing cancer
  • Studies have shown that it lowers your cholesterol
  • It benefits and strengthens your immune system
  • Increases Thermogenesis (the body's rate of burning calories)
  • Enhances Fat Oxidation (stops your body holding on to as much fat)
With all these amazing benefits, I'm wondering why it has taken me so long to catch on!

4) Now that me and Chris have booked our honeymoon to Kuala Lumpur, Borneo and Hong Kong, I would love to hear anyone's recommendations on where to visit if you have been there before? We want to make sure that we don't miss anything amazing while we are there.  I think I am most looking forward to the 5 star hotel in Borneo that we will be staying at:
I don't get the chance to stay in 5 stars very often (actually...never!) so I am probably going to be such a geek over there oooohing and ahhhing over everything!  Our room will open right out onto the beach! I will have to take loads of photos because I have a feeling this will be the holiday of a lifetime.  I am really looking forward to seeing the Orangutans as well, they have a sanctuary on the resort.

What is the best holiday you have ever been on?

5) YSL Summer 2010 collection - After seeing the new lipstick from YSL on a couple of blogs recently I have found myself lusting after a few things from the collection! I am properly lusting after the baby pink lipstick, the matching lip gloss, the bronzers and a couple of the nail polishes.  Feast your eyes on the gorgeousness....
Is there another collection you're drooling over at the moment???

  1. I always try and be good and drink green tea, but I absolutely hate the taste of it...I think its like pond water! I hate normal tea though so maybe that doesn't help. I would love to hear how you get on with the vibrating plate! Good luck! xxxx

  2. For Hong kong definitely check out Ladies market in Mong Kok, and go and see the lights in Tsim Sha Tsui - I'd also recommend going up the ridiculously steep train that takes you all the way to the top of the hill where you can see the lights. I'd also recommend getting the cable cars to see the big Buddha and go to one of HK's malls...they are out of this world...it took me three days to get through one mall! Also try and get acrylic nails done there, they put things on like acrylic bows and butterflies and adorn them with things so you end up with the most amazing nails that you'd never see in this country.

  3. @Sarah F - yeah it doesn't taste the best really but if it's good for me then I'm willing to give it a go.I will definitely report back on the results from the vibrating plate!

    @MediterraneanX - Thanks so much for the recommendations, it all sounds amazing!I will have to find something for Chris to do while I get my nails done coz I doubt he would want to hang around while I get beautified!ha ha.

  4. I've heard a lot of good things about the Power Plates, I read a good review a few months ago, worth a go :) and I love Green Tea! I drink it everyday and have done for about 5 years.. you get used to the taste!
    Two of my fave holidays were Majorca last year with all my family (parents, little brother [other was in Afghan] Ste, cousin, auntie, her hubby..) when we all go together we get a villa, and it was just such a fun holiday. And the other was Cyprus with Ste in 2007. Our first proper hol together, loved it! Your hotel looks amazing, it sounds like the room is going to be great. I l;voe that it'll open out on the beach.. I would love to have a bedroom with big patio doors and a little terrace and have the back of my house overlooking the woods or something.
