Aspirations for 2019

Written by Sabi Phagura on . Posted in Lifestyle and Beauty


I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very prosperous New Year. Remember, happiness starts from within and what a better way to start 2019 by taking care of yourself! With the onset of New Year, many of us make a round of resolutions. Whether it’s to quit smoking, begin a new fitness regime or take better care of ourselves, our resolutions begin with earnest. We feel inspired and eager to start a new life. And while that is all well and good, it’s not that easy to stick to them.

Remember to stay calm and relax this Christmas

The countdown to Christmas is on. And while it’s known as the most wonderful time of the year, it can also be one of the most stressful. The demands of the festive season including shopping for gifts, organising a party, family gatherings and social commitments can leave us feeling a tad overwhelmed. Taking time out for yourself by relaxing and staying calm, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy the festive season. To help you get through it all in one piece, here’s some ways to help you find a way to relax throughout December.

Be Kind To Yourself During World Kindness Week

Written by Sabi Phagura on . Posted in Lifestyle and Beauty


This week marks World Kindness Week to celebrate kindness in all its forms. We only have to log on to social media to see how many positive memes are out there on people’s posts and timelines (Facebook and Instagram are full of them). And in an age where there are incredibly sad and desperate situations happening all over the world, it’s easy to forget there is still more good out there than bad. We may as individuals be limited what we can do on a huge scale but if we all carried out small acts of kindness such as volunteer at a charity shop, buy a homeless a coffee, we can collectively make a huge difference.

So, You’re Vegan, But is Your Make-up?

Happy World Vegan Day! I’m not a vegan myself but used to be a vegetarian for 14 and a half years. Even now, I mostly eat chicken and fish but regularly enjoy meat-free days. I do however have a handful of vegan friends who are totally committed to the cause. But when I quizzed them on their make-up, they hadn’t really thought about it. Some people’s idea of veganism only extends to food which isn’t bad but there is so much else you can do to live a pure vegan lifestyle. Make-up is one of them. With World Vegan day upon us, I started to delve a little further into this lifestyle and stumbled across Emani Vegan Cosmetics. Born in California and established in the USA for over 20 years, Emani Vegan Cosmetics, founded by Michelle Doan, has only just launched in the UK.

The ICON Outlet at the O2 officially opens its doors today and there are some amazing brands to be had. Hackett, Ted Baker, Calvin Klein, Dune are just some of the stores I popped into during a VIP launch evening on Thursday alongside a string of celebs including Tallia Storm, Jess Wright, Ashley James and DJ Charlotte de Carl. I was totally impressed by the centre which is bright, airy and a joy to walk around. I bagged some amazing shoes from Dune for just £32 so I was chuffed!
