Whole foods. Inspiral Raw Kale Chips

There are only 9 Whole Foods shops in England! All the shops are very far from where I live, so I don't get a chance to shop there.
I been given a few snacks to try and I loved them.
My most favorite snack is: Inspiral Organic Purple Corn Raw Kale Chips.
They don't look like your normal crisps but they taste so nice!
Only fresh, organic kale is used for these kale chips, which are all hand-made in the Inspiral solar-powered factory in London. Contains no additives or preservative.
Raw Kale Chips contain none of the trans fats often associated with crisps and other convenience snacks. When air dried at low temperatures, this classic green leafy vegetable has a crispy texture and a delicious taste.
Inspiral Organic Baobab & Onion Raw Kale Chips.
You should  try Kale Chips because: Kale is loaded with calcium, vitamin K, vitamin C, folic acid, magnesium and beta carotene. This flavor wasn't my favorite, I thought there was a bit to much onion. 
I am sure that this product will appeal to people maintaining a gluten free diet, vegans, vegetarians. I just wish I could buy it at my local supermarket.

If you like me, live far away from the best food store in the world, you can have a go at making your own Kale chips.
  • 1 head kale, washed and thoroughly dried
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Sea salt, for sprinkling
Preheat the oven to 275 degrees F.
Remove the ribs from the kale and cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Lay on a baking sheet and toss with the olive oil and salt. Bake until crisp, turning the leaves halfway through, about 20 minutes. Serve as finger food.

Pro Longwear Blush - MAC Cosmetics

Can you say no to the duty free shopping? Mac with nearly 20% off is super hard to resist. Airport shopping is always so good!  So I treated myself to this little thing. (£16.50) Cute blusher in shade Rosy Outlook. Now this is my absolute must have and a new favorite blusher.

For me this is a perfect pink, it is clear and bright and peachy. My skin is very pale and it was really hard to find a good blusher for my skin tone.  It gives me a soft look and I can't go wrong even if I apply heavily. I don't think it will last long because I use a lot of product every day.

So if you are looking for  a blusher what is not extremely pigmented Rosy Outlook is perfect!

Ice-bucket challenge

You are probably next! There is no escaping just like the "no makeup selfie challenge" not so long ago. And because you don't have ice in your veins you will probably look a bit silly. It is just crazy how many people been drenching themselves in buckets of ice and water!
As far as i know it is all to raise awareness of motor neurone disease , which affects around 5,000 people in the UK.
Rules: Within 24 hours of being challenged, participants are to video record themselves in continuous footage. First, they are to announce their acceptance of the challenge followed by pouring ice into a bucket of water. The bucket is then to be lifted overhead and poured over the participant's head. Then the participant can call out a challenge to other people. In one version of the challenge, the participant is expected to donate $10 if they have poured the ice water over their head and donate $100 if they have not. If you live the United Kingdom, people have also been doing the challenge for the Motor Neurone Disease Association which is the sister organization to the ALS Association.

So let`s prepare ourselves for this big moment and thanks God for a Waterproof Make Up. And you don`t need a lot, just these two amazing products.

N1 - L'Oreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara

Because having panda eyes is not cool I suggest  to apply L'Oreal False Lash Telescopic Mascara.  If you think your eyelashes are a little bit my dull and straight, try this mascara it`s  works justice! It's hold curls perfectly & makes lashes look longer! Waterproof mascaras are perfect if you wear contacts and sometimes rub your eyes or they tear. So no panda eyes after your challenge!

 N2 - Max Factor Lipfinity

At the moment  I`m also loving Max Factor Lipfinity. It is 2 step lipstick system and it really gives long lasting colour plus moisture. Mine is number 4034. It is a great lip colour that does not come off with everything your lips touch. So you can eat and drink for 12 hours without reapplying lipstick, all you may want to do is ti reapply the gloss every now and then.

So if I`m going to be nominated I will use these two products for sure!
And lets raise money and awareness for such important causes! You can visit Macmillan cancer support website to find out how to get involved.
Send me link with your favorite celebrity's doing this!

Retro Mom Jeans

Mom Jeans are my love/hate item at the moment. When I first bought them I was so in love. After a weekend wearing them they are probable in the bottom shelf of my wardrobe.  And I don't feel like wearing them again for some time.
I think high waist jeans are really good tho! There is a big market for them, most of us have a bit of a "anti muffin-top" situation going on, Mom jeans will hide it away...

Primak £13 

I am sure it is going to be a while before all girls have a pair in they`r closets. Skinnies and jeggings are still remaining quite popular. But I did like this '80s-style waistline and proper denim that  have that kind of vintage feel.

 Do you own any Mom Jeans? 
Is it a big trend where you live?

Camden Market

A little London post! My favorite place on earth! I have been in London about a 1000 times but this was my second time  visiting Camden. I absolutely love this fun, crazy and very exotic part of this city! There is just so much to see and so much to do! Every one should see  different side of  London, so Camden is definitely worth a visit. I`m sure you will have fun browsing  and peeking around, you will find  cool, different, quirky things to keep you interested. Prices are very reasonable for souvenir shopping. 

I have done a little bit of shopping myself. I purchased a few hand made goods for a really low prices, most of the items were about £1 each. Read below :-)

Camden market must-have is: Nag Champa Incense.

Some people enjoy incense for its aroma, but others use it as part of the daily ritual, meditating and spending time healing their minds and bodies in deep thought.
Nag Champa is primarily used for meditation and for creating that spiritual, sacred space in your home. Nag Champa sticks and cones burn slowly, and allow you plenty of time to gather your thoughts while you meditate and reflect on the day.

Just a few little pieces for myself.  With such a grate choice in the stalls there is something for everyone. My favorite item here are  my earring, they look very pretty when on and are very light. All this is not 100% my everyday style, but I love to mix and match sometimes. 

 Elephant Keyring

I just though it was very cute little thing. It is perfect size for my keys and I just love elephants! 
They are very important in Hindus culture. Hindus have worshiped the elephants for many centuries, but the true philosophy behind the animal worship has been misinterpreted and distorted by many western researchers. When Hindus worship the elephant, it is not the animal itself that they are worshipping, but rather, what it represents – obedience to the dharma (the master's call), ability not to repeat past mistakes, and respect and care towards their peers.

 Bird Bell Tota Traditional Indian Hanging Decoration
 Lady at the market told me to hang them near my front door, it will bring me luck and welcome my guest.

You will need one normal size cushion and two pillowcases. Mine were from Primark and costed me only £2. Color choices in the store were not that good so I just went for a black. If you don't have a sewing machine, don't worry i don't have it aether. Minimum sewing skills and you are adone!

I just tied it in the middle with a super strong cotton.
 Second pillowcase is just folded a few times.
