Coconut Quench from Regime London

When it comes to beauty I'm not the expert it takes me 5 minutes to apply my make up and that is effort in itself. Don't get me wrong I like getting dressed up for a night out but if I didn't have to wear make up everyday I really wouldn't but I have dry/oily skin that drives me mad.


So when Regime London emailed me asking if I wanted to review one of their four skin care products coconut quench I jumped at the chance! Combining coconut water extract and hyaluronic acid to increase the moisture in your skin. You take one tablet a day for 30 days and you can purchase the skin care product from Superdrug or Amazon for just £19.99.




Coconut is so healthy for your skin because it is a great moisturiser, helps with hydration, controls the excess oils and provides a natural glow and has cytokinins in it known for it's anti aging properties.



For me coconut quench is great I have been using them for 15 days so far & have already seen visible difference with the dryness of my skin so I will keep you updated! The tablets are fairly big so if you have trouble swallowing tablets then you might find it easier trying out actual coconut water as a drink.

Have you used coconut quench yet?

Apologies for the lack of "bargains of the week" blog posts I have had lots of other posts scheduled and lost track of time!

Bargain Buys

I bought this floral maxi dress for just £8 from Brand Attic. It is a bit long for me so I'll be turning it up on my handy sewing machine.



I popped into the Bullring Birmingham last Saturday early so it was lovely and quiet, I bought these denim culottes from River Island (£10) and orange cami from New Look (£5).




Off the shoulder/bardot tops are on the top of the trend lists at the moment. Just watch you don't burn them shoulders ;)



Dorothy Perkins Gingham Cami Top £9

Gingham has been everywhere this Summer on the likes of Taylor Swift especially. This top would look really cute with white ankle length jeans.



Miss Selfridge Pale Blue Midi Skirt £12

I absolutely adore Midi Skirts they are so fun and fashionable. 



Have you bought any fashion bargains this week?

Where to Eat and Drink in Budapest

Before I go anywhere travelling I always prepare a little itinerary of where to eat and drink (organised I know!) as then you're guaranteed to have an even better time! As Budapest was a girly trip we wanted to try out the ruin bars,wine tasting and experience a restaurant with a view! 

Recommended Restaurants in Budapest


The New York Cafe 


On everyone's where to go list and officially the Most Beautiful Café In The World so we had to experience it and I am so glad we did the service was impeccable and the brunch was devine.







 Scrambled egg with mushrooms & cheese



Bellini & white hot chocolate 



It was my friends birthday so they brought out this selections of desserts.

Dunacorso

This is one of many restaurants by the river but we chose this one for my friends birthday as it had great reviews. I treated myself to ribs & they were the best I had ever eaten!



(Wearing ASOS dress)



Aszu Restaurant

Listed on the micheline guide the food not only tastes amazing but they experiment with the menu, present it well and every detail is though of. Very close to St Stephens basilica I treated myself to Aszú ox goulash, tripe, potatoes, summer vegetables and marinated string beans.


Known as a fun place to dine we could see why huge sunglasses outside and figures inside plus a beautiful terrace outside, we were lucky that this was a 5 minute walk from our apartment. The Euro Hungary game was on at the time so there was a really electric atmosphere.



For dinner I chose a duck burger and it lived up to it's name delicious!


Drinking in Budapest


When going drinking in Budapest your guaranteed to get your money's worth I love cider so a bottle of Strongbow was £2 which they sold in different flavours to England - honey, strawberry and apple.

Kiosk

Close to the river Kiosk was a recommendation and were glad we went the place was packed but we managed to find a table outside and have yummy cocktails!

We saw this Budapest nightclub recommended on a Budapest Guide on the plane and the air hostess agreed so we went after a visit to Kiosk. Set in a beautifully preserved 19th century palace on the famous Andrássy Avenue. With DJs in different rooms playing a range of music I highly recommend going! 




Ruin Bars



There are plenty of Ruin Bars in Budapest which provide a unique experience to dance and drink with friends. Set in abandoned old buildings they started around 10 years ago and I think they should come to the UK!

Instant


We were lucky to have this ruin bar around the corner so we could stumble home I had never seen anything like it! Instant has six bars and three dance floors with DJs believe me it was like a maze but great music.


Szimpla Kert

One of the oldest ruin bars in Budapest this has more of a shisha vibe than dancing but really cool interior (graffiti, computers) and open everyday which is a plus when other places are closed.



Wine Tasting


Cultivini Wine Gallery is the place to go for a unique wine tasting experience. They have state of the art machines where you insert your card with money on and click the wine size you want. We were in there hours tasting all the beautiful hungarian wines definitely worth the money and you get to experience wines that are not available in the UK.

Festival Wellies with Butterfly Twist

If you're ever wondering what to wear to a festival this Summer I think wellington boots are high on that agenda - practical aswell as stylish well in the case of Butterfly Twists wellies designs. Starting in London in 2009 they design a wide selection of shoes and of course wellies to be stylish but with comfort and versatility in mind. Stocking only women's wellies (sorry boys) in 4 different designs I picked out the grey and mint Eton Wellies as I love the colour combo and the ankle length.



When the ankle wellies arrived they came with this handy bag to pop them in when your not wearing them.


My festival look includes a New Look Grey Manhattan Top and Glamorous Khaki Denim Shorts. The top is a loose fit for staying cool and the shorts can easily get dirty from the mud without people noticing! 

Unfortunately I am not going to any festivals this year (only if food ones count) but it is on my bucket list to go to Glastonbury and Bestival!







I have never owned a pair of wellington boots as comfy as these and I think they are perfect for festivals. Easily cleaned with a bit of olive oil! (Top tip right there)

What do you think of my festival look?

Multifloral - stylish floral patterns and high quality fabrics

Auchan Ai - dresses made form silk, organza and chiffon

Tetelee - Chic silhouettes, elegant colours, high quality fabrics

My Wishlist


Blue is one of my favourite colours and shoulder detailing is a big trend this Summer.



This floral midi dress would be perfect for a Summer wedding, the detailing is absolute exquisite. 



Designed by Elf Sack the brand is very out there with colourful prints and shapes. I particularly love the lace collar and frill sleeves.


White Two Piece Playsuit $58 (Approx £44)

This "you are my sunshine" playsuit has a retro feel to it and an eye catching pink!

As the saying goes "If you can't be yourself always be a unicorn" and you can be (well kind of) with this cute wallet.

Introducing Jewellery Candles by Etta French

Since moving into my own home with the boyfriend I have gone interior crazy and beautiful CANDLES are always at the top of my list. They can be romantic or welcome you home to a fresh and fragrant room that you can relax in.

Etta French have redesigned the luxury candle and encapsulated two things that girls love in one - fragrance and jewellery. The real surprise is when the scented candle is burnt you get a stylish piece of high quality jewellery, designed by jewellers Pearl & Queenie. There are over 100 different designs to collect in total, including necklaces, rings, bracelets and cool charms, made from semi-precious stones, silver plus silver and gold plated.
 
Each luxury candle is hand poured in the UK, using 100% natural plant candle wax and they are both sustainable and kind to the environment. Burn time is approximately 50 hours so they are very long lasting.




The jewellery candles come in six scents, mine being bluebell which I was so pleased about as I love the colourful blue packaging and the scent is apparent as soon as you open the box. They describe this particular scent as "Recreate childhoods spent playing in parks and invigorating woodland walks with this fresh, delicate scent. Containing only pure Bluebell, this poignant fragrance will bring British springtime into your home at any time of the year".









The beautiful candle would make a great gift for weddings, christenings etc or even just treat yourself because at £37.50 you get a luxury product for a really affordable price.

Etta French have also been kind enough to offer my lovely readers a 10% discount code, which is valid for the whole of July online. The code is ETTABLOGJUL16 

I am yet to see what jewellery piece I have inside but will keep you posted on my Instagram
