Move over Pinkberry there is another yoghurt bowl in town, and the good news is that you can make it in your very own kitchen! I am a huge fan of these yoghurt bowls as they are so interchangable (you can sub any of the ingredients for what you like!!) and can be breakfast, a snack, or even dessert. Furthermore these delicious treats are merely put together which means there is no cooking time at all. So here is how to assemble this amazing antioxidant bowl:
1/2 cup of Greek yoghurt/coconut yoghurt
Handful of granola of your choice
7 strawberries diced
1 tsp of chia seeds
1 tsp of cacao covered pumpkin seeds
1/2 tsp of dessicated coconut
1/2 tsp vanilla powder
1 tbs of Goji berries
I like to simply layer the ingredients and make it look pretty before consuming. It's literally that easy and is so very good for you. Enjoy!!

So Autmn/ Fall has already started in most parts of the world, and though in LA we are still basking in the sun, I have altered my skincare routine to welcome the upcoming chillier (only slightly…) months ahead. Alternatively if you find yourself already battling the steady fall breeze, and possibly fighting the wind and rain then these products will also work wonders for you.
Next up is the SkinCeuticals Clarifying Clay Masque, which is one of my absolute favorites. It decongests and rids your face of all blackheads or any small whiteheads/millia you may have lurking under your skin yet doesn’t leave your face feeling stripped of all moisture once you have washed it off. The key ingredient in this mask is Kaolin, which is a great pore refiner, increases circulation, and also fight off acne. Its an amazing ingredient, and if you have ever tried any other Skinceuticals products before, you'll be happy to know that this product is a winner much like all of their other products. Definitely a MUST BUY! (I am so obsessed!)
Lastly, I couldn't include a list of anything without incorporating a juice into it. I am obsessed with juicing, and I really adore the juice shots or tonics most juice stores are now carrying. They are little concentrated bottles of wonders and always boast the most amazing properties. This one in particular is loaded with Vitamin C primarily from the Camu Camu it contains. Camu Camu is a berry found in the Amazon rainforest and it has been declared as the most potent source of Vitamin C in the world. (Read the benefits of Vitamin C above). I love incorporating Vitamin C into my diet whether it is through fruit or vegetables, but I especially appreciate it when it contains less sugar. Oranges are of course a lovely source of Vitamin C but one glass of plain orange juice contains far more sugar than the daily requirement (not to mention you will induce sugar from elsewhere through out the day as well) and nobody ever sat and ate 7 oranges in one go anyway! So, I enjoy finding other alternatives to get Vitamin C in my system that don't contain all that sugar, and Camu Camu is definitely one of them. This little bottle contains a blend of all the Vitamin C heavy ingredients on the label above and it is one of the yummiest and beneficial juice shots I have come across.

Eyebrows can be a very touchy subject, I mean first off they really do frame your face, secondly as much as Cara Delevningne is killing the eyebrow game with her naturally wild and bushy brows, i’d say that 99% of women tame their brows as much as possible. I personally think brows should be kept as natural looking as possible without being too skinny, too sparse (grab an Anastasia Brow Wizz pencil if you have this issue), or too big. Take any of the women on the bottom or top right, whose brows are groomed to perfection and clearly maintained with military like precision and regime, and just imagine the possibilities with your own set of eyebrows.
I have been through a multitude of sticky situations when it comes to my brows, from missmatched, to too much being removed, to my natural shape being tragically altered. However after trying one to many salons and bouncing between threading and waxing my whole life, I now have my own military like regime which I rarely stray from:
In between threading appointments I tend to freak out when I see the first signs of regrowth and I always make a mad grab for the tweezers to tug on (even it’s one hair) unslightly regrowth. So after doing this multiple times, I have learned, DO NOT DO THAT, it causes in grown hairs, which can be a total pain to remove or grow out and so this is why I always…
So you are finally at your appointment, your eyebrow lady has an accent and you are praying that after you gave her the run down of EXACTLY what you want done to your eyebrows, she actually does what you have asked and you won’t be forced to run out of the salon post appointment with your sunglasses on and tears falling down your pretty face. So on that note make sure…
So the appointment is finally over and you managed to survive the session hopefully with your brows unscathed and a big smile on your face. The thing I do immediately once I have left the salon is to pull out a cleansing cloth. I prefer the Murad Clarifying Wipes as they remove dirt and bacteria and are specially formulated for acne-prone skin. They also leave your skin feeling all nice and tingly which I really love. I don’t typically have acne-prone skin but I have noticed that I tend to break out wherever the thread has rubbed my skin, namely my upper lip and eyebrow area, and I realised it’s something that really needed to be taken care of the second I leave the salon, because it could be 30 mins to an hour before I get to go home and actually wash my face. Lastly, let your skin breathe so that your hair follicles which are now empty can seal themselves up without clogging
