A couple of weeks ago I was invited to partake in an authentic Japanese meal, organised by the peeps over at NuffNang UK. As I am a huge fan of Japanese cuisine and I knew some of my blogger buddies were coming, I obviously had to say yes. The restaurant in question was Sushinoen, a place I had never been to before, in the Whitechapel area, in London. I’m glad it’s now under my radar, as the food was amazing,
I got there and met up with my fellow blogger guests, some of which I already knew, others I didn’t but was very happy to meet. I’m adding a list of all the bloggers that were present at the bottom of this post, so you can see their take on the meal if you like. Different people, different photos, opinions, etc, amirite? Plus, always nice to explore new blogs, if you don’t know them.
Read on, for some deliciousness!
“Sometimes I wonder what I would be like if left to revert to nature,” she writes. “With a full beard and handlebar moustache on each shin, Denis Healey eyebrows, face a graveyard of dead skin cells, spots erupting, long curly nails like a Struwwelpeter …”

Hair. That thing that you tend to get annoyed with when it grows in other places other than your head and a few other selected places.
Despite a few women these days now foregoing hair removal in favour of a more natural look, the majority still worries about out-of-place hair, myself included. I am aware that the desire for smooth skin surfaces on women is a social construct but somehow I can’t avoid preferring a groomed look.
When it comes to hair removal, I must have tried most techniques available in the market: plucking, bleaching, shaving, waxing, IPLing and all sorts of hair removal machines, that have felt more like torture devices than anything else.
I’ve added a few new products to my usual beauty regime (see my morning makeup regime post here) and I wanted to tell you all about them – hair oil, perfume, serums… As time is of the essence and there are a few and very varied items on the list, I have decided to do it in a roundup format, as it makes more sense to me at the moment. Enjoy!
To finish my Week of Beauty, I have another beauty product that was sent to me by occasion of the Bloggers Love Twitter party just a couple of weeks ago. The Zuzka Rose Petal Cleansing Milk was advertised as something indicated for mature skin. As yours truly isn’t getting any younger and is getting closer and closer to the big 4-0, I thought this would be an adequate product to try.
With My Week of Beauty under way, today it is time to talk about the new salon and treatments I’ve tried last Saturday.
I headed down to Marble Arch in Central London for a great treat – a morning of pampering and beautification at the Beauty & Melody salon. I was super excited about the good things that I knew was in for at the day and for good reason! Nothing beats spending a good few hours at the salon, being looked after and going out feeling re-energized by having your hair done and your skin cleared and looking glowing! (plus the feeling of freshly cut dyed and cut hair is amazing).
