Best Body Oils For Glowing, Soft Summer Skin

summer body oils

If you've watched any of my travel vlogs whilst abroad or if you watched my recent packing video you'll probably know that I adore body oils. Nothing feels more 'Summer' to me than getting out of the shower after a day in the sunshine and drenching my body in body oil. I love dry body oils as they make my skin so glowy and soft for hours afterwards, without being sticky but I also find they massively enhance my tan too, whether it's a natural tan or a fake tan. Here are a few of the best dry body oils for soft, Summer, glowing skin.

I’ve been working in and out of London for years and years now and I’m very lucky that in my job, I’ve been able to try some of the best places for food in London. I’m also a real foodie anyway, so I’m always up for trying the best foodie hotspots. I’m asked on a daily basis about the best places to eat in London so thought I’d write a guide to my top London restaurants. It’s crazy that I have a guide to the best restaurants in Barcelona and a guide to the best restaurants in New York but I’m only just writing my guide to the best restaurants and my favourite restaurants in London! Here goes, I hope you’re hungry. Here is my London restaurant guide for all budgets, whether you're looking for a luxurious date night, a fun girls night or a cheap eats but amazing food night, I have got you covered. Get ready to screenshot and bookmark this London food guide and make sure you let me know on Instagram @emshelx if you visit any of my recommendations.

I'm a blow dry addict and anyone who knows me knows that. As much as I can do my own hair pretty well now (hello ghd hair, how did I ever cope without you?!) no-one does it like the pros and often I'm either shooting content, videos or have events to go to so I need fresh hair, done by the professionals because let's be honest, who doesn't love having their hair done? I've got my little black book of best places for a blow dry in London and I relish in booking myself in and walking out like a new woman. I have absolutely no shame in saying I've had three per week before. I feel like in my life I've tried a lot of blow dries so thought it was about time I shared the best blow dries in London. No matter where abouts you are based in London, I'm hoping my guide will have somewhere close enough for you. For my Yorkshire readers, there's only really one place I'll ever go for my blow dries in Leeds (Sassoon Salon Leeds) but in London it tends to depend which area of London I'm in. I live between Yorkshire and London so it's either Sassoon or one of the below in London. Here are the top places for a blow dry in London that have made the cut and I'd trust with blow drying my hair!

Easy Healthy Banana Bread Recipe

healthy banana bread recipe

My last easy healthy banana bread recipe is years old and one so many people have sent me pictures of (and enjoyed eating, hooray) but I've been working on a new recipe for banana bread and I have to say, this one is a lot more 'bread like' so I hope you're going to like it. This banana bread recipe isn't vegan, unlike my older banana bread recipe but there's something to hopefully suit everything with both recipes. We all crave banana bread but usually they add SO much sugar so hopefully you'll find this banana bread recipe a touch healthier plus super easy to bake. I whipped this up today and it literally took me 5 minutes and within 20 I was sat down eating it. I’ve been trying to perfect my banana bread recipe for a long time, and finally I think I’m getting there. If you follow me on Instagram you probably saw my new banana bread loaf and I think this might be my best healthier banana bread yet. If you're in the mood for cookies though, make sure you check out my healthier chocolate chip cookie recipe. Open up for the healthier easy banana bread recipe.
