NHYC x JYUKIMI: Snacks Haul!

Due to my internship, I'm up in Nottingham for 2 months and luckily for me, Jess from JYUKIMI lives here, which means we are able to do collabs together.

Jess has always been a family friend, but we only recently started growing closer because of blogging, youtube and common interests. I'm very happy to be able to have her spend time with me whilst I'm up here, otherwise I'd probably be extremely bored when I'm not at work.

We are going to create a lot of collaborations, so do keep an eye out and check back to our youtube channels for the upcoming videos.

Here is the second collab we've done together, it's something different to my usual content but I hope you'll enjoy it nonetheless.

Vlog and Photos from my Holiday in Morocco

I went to Essaouira in Morocco for a week with my parents and relatives. It had been years since I last went on holiday with my cousin, so it made me feel even more excited for the trip. 

The hotel we stayed in was called Sofitel Essaouira Mogador Golf & Spa and it was so beautiful. The staff at that hotel were extremely lovely and always smiled and greeted us whenever they saw us. I took a lot of photos and also recorded lots of clips whilst I was there. Check them out below!

This was the entrance of the hotel. We were amazed as soon as we stepped inside. It looks extra beautiful at night!
Plants are everywhere inside the hotel. The gardeners do a wonderful job

The boy who checked our minibar daily came to our room extra early on the last day and treated my cousin and I to snacks, haha.

If you're friends with me on Facebook, you can find all the other photos on my profile. This was a much needed trip and I'm so happy to have been able to go there. I definitely recommend the hotel we stayed at, so if you're planning to go to Morocco...do consider it! The only negative thing about the place was that it was very windy every day. However, I would love to go there again if I have another chance to.

Bloggers' Day Out: Salon Science, Heaven Skincare Press Day and Gabbi's Head

Yesterday, Molly from Daisily and I went to check out the Salon Science pop-up salon over at the Andrew Jose Salon, as well as the Heaven Skincare press day inside The Langham Hotel.

Salon Science incorporated skincare with haircare and has come up with new products that have interesting ingredients. These include: Swiss Apple which has anti-ageing properties and restores volume, Cactus for scalp relief which is perfect during the cold winter season and lastly, Pea Sprout which is for those who suffer with hair loss.

Molly tried out products from the Aquacacteen range. In the image above, the hairdresser is apply the Hydrofoliant Scalp Scrub, which helps to remove old skin cells. There aren't many scalp exfoliators out there (in fact, I never knew they even existed), so this product is really unique. The scrub was gently rubbed into the scalp and was left in her hair for about 5 minutes before it got rinsed away. Molly said it felt really refreshing. After that, the hairdresser shampooed her hair twice and then used Hydrasorb Intensive Masque before the conditioner.

The hairdresser who blow-dried Molly's hair applied two different types of serum into her hair (I didn't catch the names of them though). Most of us know that hair serums can make the scalp greasy, so the two of us were surprised when the lady applied serum to Molly's scalp. Turns out, that specific serum was very light, non-greasy and gave the hair extra volume. The second serum was applied to the ends of her hair. Needless to say, Molly's hair felt extremely soft and she was happy with the result. These hair products are already available on the boots website, so you can check them out here. I am really interested in the hair serum, so hopefully I can purchase a bottle soon.

Afterwards, we had some lunch and then went to The Langham Hotel for the Heaven Skincare press day. We were offered champagne and were told to sit inside. The moment I saw the products, I was in awe because of the beautiful packaging. I had never heard of this brand before, but it turns out many celebrities have used and loved the products (such as Kylie Minogue, Victoria Beckham, Michelle Pfeiffer and many more). The woman who came up with these products is called Deborah Mitchell and she gave us a quick overview of the upcoming products which will be released between late August to early September. I tried out the new Orange Flower Hydrogel on the back of my hand and I really liked it. It works as a toner and a moisturiser. The scent was subtle and the gel melts into a liquid form when you rub it into the skin. The price of these products vary, but I think it's reasonable since the ingredients and packaging adds up to quite a heavy amount. The product that stole the show was the Bee Venom mask...sounds interesting right?


We then went to Gabbi's Head, which is Benefit's 1st World Cup Pop-up Pub. It is located on Drury Lane, near Covent Garden. The second floor is decorated with pink furniture and there was a brow stall and a makeup stall. There is also a bar that serves cocktails and other alcoholic beverages. The vibe was quite chill, which made it a really nice place to have a catchup with my friend.


Coasters with cute messages.

Selfie with Molly :)


The drinks looked nice and tasted okay, but they were way overpriced.

We ended the day by having dinner at one of my favourite restaurants, which is The Diner. Since we started the day early, we left London and went home soon after we finished eating.
