Perfect pamper day

(Kylpyläreissu ja illallinen saatu yhteistyössä Entertainer App:in kanssa, ja koska kyseessä on Lontoon applikaatio, jätin käännöksen tekemättä.)

A couple of weeks ago Mayah and I got a lovely invite for a spa day and dinner from The Entertainer App, and there was no way we would have turned that down. Both of us have been needing relaxation and pampering, so this was the perfect invitation.

We started the day at Spa Verta in Battersea, where we were booked for half an hour massages. The relaxation area where we waited was gorgeous and calming, and we got to enjoy delicious coffees – as we simply can’t function without coffees in the morning haha.

I haven’t had a massage in yeeeeeeeears, and if you are a long time reader, you might remember I had a shoulder injury… so there was a bit of worry in my excitement. My therapist was lovely though, and I wish the treatment would have been longer!

After the massages we had access to the spa area, and spent hours between 3 saunas (Finnish sauna, sanarium and steam room) and the hydrotherapy pool enjoying the jacuzzi jets. Seriously I loved this so much, I wish I could go every week! Mayah and I keep talking about the day though, so I’m sure we’ll go back soon.

After the spa day we got to go for dinner at the Soho Indian restaurant, The Red Fort. I loved the dark red and black decor from the second we walked in. We picked a nice South African white wine (that ended up being a GREAT choice) and hit the menu.

I went with murgh seekh for starter, which was spiced roasted minced chicken skewers with ginger, garlic, coriander and cumin. I ate them with the mango chutney and they were lovely, but very spicy. (Haha, I might have gotten my face all sweaty because of that.) And for my main I got murgh malai, which was chicken tikka pieces marinated with cardamom with rice and naan.

My favourite part of the dinner was the dessert though – that rich chocolate mousse was aaaaaamazing! Also a bar called Zenna is located in the basement of The Red Fort, so that is a perfect place for those after dinner drinks.

All in all the day was just what Mayah and I needed, and if you want to do something similar with your best friend – The Entertainer App is full of great 2 for 1 deals that get you all the pampering and entertainment you and your bestie could want for half the price!

End of year sales wishlist

Every year ends with massive sales, and this year is no different. I have done a bit of sale shopping, but there are still a lot of things on my wishlist that I’m lusting after. Thankfully sites like Love The Sales helps compiling it all, as you can browse all the sales under one site. So here’s a few things that I’m coveting…


Joka vuosi loppuu järjettömiin alennusmyynteihin, ja tämä vuosi ei ole poikkeus. Olen itsekin sortunut shoppailemaan hiukan, mutta toivelistallani on edelleen paljon juttuja joita himoitsen. Sivustot kuten Love The Sales auttaa tällaisessa tilanteessa, kun voit selata kaikkia aleja yhden sivuston alla. Joten tässäpä jokunen juttu listaltani…

adidas Originals Superstar 80’s sneakers 30% off at Luisavíaroma | ASOS Curve Dress 15% off at ASOS | Apple Macbook Pro 12% off at Currys | boohoo Plus dress 20% off at boohoo | Nike Roshe Run trainers 15% off at Foot Asylum | New Look Curves coat 50% off at New Look

Introducing: Unbound

(Tämä on yhteistyö amerikkalaisen Unboundin kanssa, joten jätin käännöksen tekemättä.)

I was contacted by New York based company, Unbound, who are all about embracing the female sexuality. Now this is a topic that I usually don’t cover on the blog, hence I was a bit reluctant after reading their email. However, I did click on the link and went to have a look. I was SO pleasantly surprised that you can’t even imagine. The site design is gorgeous, the language they use is friendly, cheeky and funny, and there’s not an ounce of sleaziness or cheapiness that one usually expects from this kind of industry! So, I decided to email them back.

The idea of the site is subscription boxes, like ones that you have for beauty, food, books.. anything. So why not have one for your sexual needs :). The site has something for you, whether you are single or coupled, or whether you are vanilla or a bit more kinky. They even have some gorgeous underwear and body chains, including some plus-size options!

And that card above states the reason why I like Unbound the most. The fact that they give that big of a portion from their profits to charities that support female sexual health is absolutely amazing. You can tell that they are committed to the cause, whether it is making sure that us women enjoy our sexuality, or helping charities that help us stay healthy. I applaud them, and you guys should definitely check them out! (And yes, they do ship in discreet packages to UK and Europe as well!)

Improved vision

(Suomeksi alla)

As I mentioned in my last post, I had an eye test done and my sight had gotten worse – good times. However Glasses Direct came to my rescue and they sent me this lovely pair of Scout glasses with my new prescription. I didn’t want to go too far from my previous shape, but this pair is a bit rounder and taller than my old, so it is still different. And I don’t know, I think it makes me look more feminine somehow.. maybe it is the fact that tortoiseshell is a softer colour than plain black. Whatever it is, I really do like this pair, and I’m very happy with my choice :).

By the way, Glasses Direct offer an amazing service of Free Home Trial in the UK. You can pick 4 frames to try on and they will send them to you for free, and with a free returns label attached. You can do as many trials as you want, you just need to wait that they get your return back before you can order a new trial. I find this service really helpful, as sometimes even virtual try-on isn’t enough. (Even though Glasses Direct have an amazing one of those as well!) They also have great offers all the time, so I recommend giving them a try!

Kuten mainitsin edellisessä postauksessani, kävin näöntarkastuksessa, ja näköni oli taas huonontunut – parasta. Kuitenkin Glasses Direct tuli avukseni, ja he lähettivät minulle nämä ihanat Scout silmälasit uudella reseptilläni. En halunnut ajatua liian kauas edellisten lasien tyylistä, mutta tämä pari on hiukan pyöreämpi ja korkeampi kuin edelliset lasini, eli sentään vähän erilainen. Ja siis jostain syystä mielestäni näytän jotenkin enemmän naiselliselta tämä kehys kasvoillani.. mutta ehkä se johtuu vaan siitä, että tämä kilpikonna on väriltään pehmeämpi kuin entinen musta. Noh, mikä ikinä onkaan syynä, nämä lasit ovat todella mieluiset, ja olen erittäin tyytyväinen valintaani :).

Glasses Direct muuten toimittaa myös Suomeen, postikulutkin ovat ainoastaan 7,50 puntaa. Lasit vahvuuksilla ovat hyvälaatuisia ja halpoja, ja voit ennen tilaamista kokeilla niitä kasvoillesi virtuaalisesti käyttäen Ditto-palvelua. Heillä on todella usein myös hyviä tarjouksia, kannattaa kokeilla!
