‘milk and honey’ by rupi kaur

Look what came today, the ‘milk and honey’ self-published book by Rupi Kaur. For about a few years now I have seen poems from this book on social media sites, especially on Instagram. Seeing these posts made me more intriguied as they had very much realted to my current situations in life. This book is set to have sold more than half a million copies just in the US alone, so surly it must be worth getting?

‘Milk and honey’ is the experience of; loss, violence, abuse, femininity and love.  The book is divided into four chapters (the hurting, the loving, the breaking, the healing) as each chapter has its own purpose.

This book is retailed at £9.99 in book stores but can be found online for about £6.99. I am so excited to read these poems and if anyone has read this book please leave me a comment below and tell me what you thought of it, as it is always interesting knowing other people’s opinions!

The new face mask obsession.

The ‘Black Mask’.

So, I will begin posting about the new face mask trend that is meant to be amazing! This is the ‘black mask’, as I am sure everyone has heard of. If you haven’t then well the black (charcoal) mask, is a mask that you peel off after applying it onto your skin. The peel tends to grab all pores in order to detoxify and clear skin, in which it acts out as a magnet to draw out trapped dirt deep within the pores. The peel of the mask can at times hurt as it has a very tight grip. So, therefore, the little hairs on your face will also be removed during the peeling (who needs to wax/thread their faces anymore?!).

As it such a big trend now, there are many versions of the mask that are created by different companies. The most popular one is, ‘Shills’ however this can start from a starting price of £12.99 for just 50ml (Tescos). I decided to go for another brand version of the mask (‘Peels and Seals’) and got this for a lesser price and double the amount (100ml) and surprisingly it still works wonders!

L’Oreal Pure Clay

Continuing the topic on masks, there is one more mask that has a trend craze but not as much as ‘the black mask’. This mask is created by L’Oreal and is called the ‘Pure Clay mask’. There are three different types: Purity Mask, Detox Mask and Glow Mask. Each mask has its own purpose. Although, I have not tried the other two but will do shortly, I have tried the ‘Glow Mask’. The results I got after using this product was absoloutly amazing as my skin looked healthier and I had much more of a glow. The smell was refreshing and I have to say one of the best masks that I have used in a while.

Due to L’Oreal being a well-known brand these masks can almost be found anywhere especially at drugstores such as, Boots and Superdrug. These masks are retailed at £7.99 each but if you catch a sale you will get them for around £5/6.
