No comments:
Vaping has been the latest craze for the past few years and people have taken well to it.

TOP VAPE FLAVOURS BY HALO E-LIQUID - COLLABORATION WITH E-CIGARETTE DIRECT


E-cigarette direct offers the best products when it comes to vaping.


Vaping consists in using an e-cigarette or similar vaporising device to exhale and inhale aereosols. These aereosols so to speak, include the flavoured e-liquids.

They retail each at ONLY £3.99

These e-liquids can contain a nicotine free flavour or different percentages of nicotine for those who rather smoke a flavour.


I was very intrigued by the fact that you could choose the nicotine percentage of your Halo E-liquid.

Vape E-liquid vapour percentages go from 0.3% to 1.8%

TOP VAPE FLAVOURS BY HALO E-LIQUID - COLLABORATION WITH E-CIGARETTE DIRECT

Vaping is used by many as a type of shisha or way also to reduce or a stepping stone for quitting smoking.

I was particularly intrigued by the flavour choice Halo provides as there are an extended amounts of flavours.

For those who want to see what kind of drip the Halo E-liquid vape has, it's the following:

TOP VAPE FLAVOURS BY HALO E-LIQUID - COLLABORATION WITH E-CIGARETTE DIRECT

I ended up choosing a variation of 7 different Halo vape e-liquid flavours.

HALO VAPOUR CO.
Classic Virginia 10ml E-Liquid


CLASSIC VIRGINIA FLAVOUR BY HALO E-LIQUID - COLLABORATION WITH E-CIGARETTE DIRECT

This a premium Halo E-Liquid in a 50:50 VG to PG formula.

The flavour profile is that of hand rolled tobacco.

This is the perfect flavour for any tobacco lover. 


I can't believe how the classic flavour of hand rolled tobacco was replicated so well.

The Halo Classic Virginia E-Liquid had mixed intense and bright flavours.

I did find that it was very smooth through vaping and I wouldn't be surprised if this is the highest selling one.


A lot of ex smokers or smokers who rather vape would be prone to choosing this Halo e-liquid flavour.

HALO VAPOUR CO.
Pear Drops 10ml E-Liquid


PEAR DROPSFLAVOUR BY HALO E-LIQUID - COLLABORATION WITH E-CIGARETTE DIRECT

This is a Premium Halo Halo E-Liquid with a 50/50 VG to PG formula.


The flavour profile is that of the classic pear drop sweets.


I love pear and pear flavours in general and this was one I had to order.

I don't know if you ever had Pear drops sweets but they are so sweet and give me nostalgia of my childhood.

The Pear Drops E-Liquid by Halo E-Liquid is not overly sweet but sweet to the right point. I found it to be slightly tangy and I really enjoyed it.

I think that this particular flavour is just to die for and defiantly one that you will enjoy if you like pear in general.


HALO VAPOUR CO.
Manic Mango 10ml E-Liquid


MANIC MANGO FLAVOUR BY HALO E-LIQUID - COLLABORATION WITH E-CIGARETTE DIRECT

This is also a Premium Halo E-Liquid with a 50/50 PG/VG formula.

The flavour profile is that of a ripe mango. 


It is quite soft and not sour which I found extremely surprising as Mango usually is quite tangy and sour.

The Manic Mango by Halo E-Liquid is quite creamy and not overwhelming which came as a surprise.

I could taste the mango fully and love that it wasn't overly sweet. 

I find that this is a great one for vaping beginners as it's not too strong in taste and is very smooth.


HALO VAPOUR CO.
Popular Blend 10ml E-Liquid


POPULAR BLEND FLAVOUR BY HALO E-LIQUID - COLLABORATION WITH E-CIGARETTE DIRECT

Another Premium Halo E-Liquid with a 50/50 VG to PG formula.

It has the classic tobacco blend flavour profile.


This is another great one for tobacco lovers. It closely resembles medium strength cigarettes and has the classic authentic taste of tobacco. 

It is probably quite popular as the E-Liquid by Halo E-Liquid is light yet dry in flavours.

I has the great flavours of a the classic cigarettes available without the nicotine.


HALO VAPOUR CO.
Raspberry Crush 10ml E-Liquid


RASPBERRY CRUSH FLAVOUR BY HALO E-LIQUID - COLLABORATION WITH E-CIGARETTE DIRECT

This is a Premium Halo E-Liquid with a 50/50 VG to PG formula.

The flavour profile is that of fresh raspberry with menthol.


I adore how the fresh flavour the natural rasberries was captured so elegantly.

The Raspberry Crush E-Liquid by Halo E-Liquid is refreshing , sweet and quite sharp.

It reminds me of a menthol infused raspberry concoction.

It vapes very nicely. That mix of menthol and raspberry gives it that well needed smoothness to counteract the sharpness of the raspberry.

I did find that maybe this particular one is suited to those that love sweet vape flavours.


HALO VAPOUR CO.
American Red 10ml E-Liquid


AMERICAN RED FLAVOUR BY HALO E-LIQUID - COLLABORATION WITH E-CIGARETTE DIRECT

This is a premium Halo E-Liquid with a 50/50 PG/VG formula.

It has a classic American tobacco flavour profile.

You can clearly tell that they were inspired by the popular American brand cigarettes and is the classic tobacco flavour.

I found that the American Red E-Liquid by Halo e-liquid is quite rich in flavour and ex smokers are going to love this one.

This is the best tasting tobacco flavour you can possibly buy and is a highly recommended one.


HALO VAPOUR CO.
Blackjack Twist 10ml E-Liquid


BLACKJACK TWIST FLAVOUR BY HALO E-LIQUID - COLLABORATION WITH E-CIGARETTE DIRECT

Another premium Halo E-Liquid which is 50% PG/50% VG formula.

The flavour profile is that of Blackjack sweets. 


If you love Blackjack sweets and that nostalgic taste this one you must try.

The blackjack Twist by Halo E-Liquid has the well known liquorice flavour.

It gives you that old school classic sweet shop flavour with it's notes of sherbet.


It definitely is a gorgeous black jack taste.

FINAL VERDICT


Overall all the Halo E-liquid flavours are high in quality. 

Flavours have been properly developed and are a brand to watch out for.

They have put thought into the packaging and impressively enough flavour development.

TOP VAPE FLAVOURS BY HALO E-LIQUID - COLLABORATION WITH E-CIGARETTE DIRECT


Halo e-liquid vape flavours cater to all type of taste buds. There are all kind of choices which range from sweet to sour and dry to smooth.

The other great advantage is that E-cigarette offers not only a great range of flavours and products, but also competitive prices. Other competitors tend to charge a little bit more whereas E-cigarette provide offers and prices that are excellent!!!!!!!!!!

Quality versus price is really incredible. 


TOP VAPE FLAVOURS BY HALO E-LIQUID - COLLABORATION WITH E-CIGARETTE DIRECT

I am surprised as to how affordable the Halo E-liquid vape flavours are.
A flavour can last on average up to a week and highly reduce your smoking or shisha spend.

Through some research I found that a lot of people tend to use vaping as a stepping stone for quitting smoking!!! So this may well be you chance to quit with ease.

ALL ABOUT LIP FILLERS IN COLLABORATION WITH SY CLINIC

No comments:
When choosing an aesthetic practitioner the last thing you want to do is go and visit just anyone.

I was kindly invited to visit the SY Clinic in Harley Street in Central London. 

If you rather watch my video Blog experience on YouTube.

ALL ABOUT LIP FILLERS IN COLLABORATION WITH SY CLINIC

They have 3 different clinic locations in Leicester, Surrey and Harley Street.

I made my way to Harley Street.

As I waited in the waiting area , I didn't know what to expect.

ALL ABOUT LIP FILLERS IN COLLABORATION WITH SY CLINIC
I've seen their work on Instagram and it looked well done. Their clinics are not only on Harley Street but also Leicester and Surrey.

The aesthetic practitioner welcomed me in his office and sat me down to have my initial consultation.

I love that he took a good look at my features. When addressing symmetry he displayed poise and mannerism which was outstanding.

He was able to pin point the size imbalance in my lips. Hence, we were going to do the lip filler procedure.

These below are my lips before the procedure. If you focus one side is thicker than the other.

LIPS BEFORE LIP FILLER REVOLAX AT SY CLINIC HARLEY STREET
I was particularly intrigued how he was able to explain the issue without making me feel inadequate.

He explained what procedure would bring out more balance in my natural features.

It was impressive how small amounts of filler can tweak appearance in a positive way.

We went through all the outlined possible complications that in very few cases can occur prior to having the procedure done.

The cost of 1ml of Revolax is £180.


THE PROCEDURE

I was explained the procedure and what filler would be used.

I was advised that less than 1ml would be needed to balance my lips and give them a much more desirable look.

The injectable filler type used was Revolax.

Ali injected primarily the right side of my lip to make it's shape closer to my left side.

He made sure he contoured my lips with the filler and gave my bottom lip a boost in the middle section.

He used a mixture of different techniques and injected different areas to make the lip more symmetrical.

The feeling was exactly that of a slight sting and I personally did not feel in pain.

To be honest, I feel he had quite a soft touch injecting unlike others who can be heavy handed.

LIPS BEFORE AND AFTER LIP FILLER REVOLAX AT SY CLINIC HARLEY STREET

The lips were slightly augmented to create the perfect lip.

The improvement in my lips was instant as Ali had a big lip to start off with, but if you have thinner lips you may need to gradually build them up.

Note that they are seriously swollen both in my YouTube video and pictures as I just had the lip filler injected.

Post treatment included no drinking alcohol, no smoking and a few more recommendations which include resting.

Future planning includes solely maintenance which can vary between people (8-14months).

Depending on how your body reacts to the filler and also the needle going into the lip area , bruising and tenderness can vary.

In my case, as you can see from my YouTube blog and my daily shots I had minimal bruising. In regards to swelling one side was more swollen than the other especially the first 4 days as I had a slight lip imbalance so more was injected on my right side.

The below collage is a 7 day picture log of how my lips were healing after having had lip filler.

LIP FILLER SIDE EFFECTS SY CLINIC

As the swelling subsided by day 7 I decided to recreate a Bratz doll look since I had the lips to go with it.

BRATZ DOLL CHALLENGE AFTER LIP FILLER AT SY CLINIC HARLEY STREET

FINAL VERDICT

I can happily say that I was happy with all the information and options the aesthetic consultant provided me with.

The procedure in itself was like that of a sting as the needle penetrates the lip.

I could already see a huge difference eventhough my lips were extremely swollen.

It's now exactly a week since I had them done and they seem to have mostly healed and with make-up bruising is not visible.

LIP FILLER AFTER INJECTING 1ML AT SY CLINIC HARLEY STREET LONDON

As Ally taught me, less is more. I had less than one ml injected but the difference is huge.

I am extremely happy at how well the filler has taken to my lips giving me the look I had in mind.

Beware though not every body heals the same way so make sure to listen to the possible side effects you may encounter. Every procedure carries risks that I urge you to take into consideration so it's not a decision to be taken lightly.

I was particularly impressed that I wasn't advised to do procedures which I didn't need for monetary gain.

I am happy to have had the chance to be given a lip makeover by the lip bae King.

My decision to have a cosmetic procedure was one that I didn't take lightly and even though this is a collaboration I made sure to check the practitioner credentials and expertise. At the end of the day this is my body and it's important to choose the right clinicians to have a safe and desired experience.

Remember that fillers are temporary and the body disposes of them in its time and even asymmetrically. Hence, if you were to decide to have your lips augmented you have to consider the fact that maintenance is a must.

If you would like to know why I decided to have lip filler, feel free to ask me to do a post on the matter.

Although this post is a sponsored post, all opinions are my own and truthful.


Would you like to know about more cosmetic procedures? How do you feel about them?

3 MUST-HAVE OUTFIT CHOICES YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO LIVE WITHOUT FROM MOTEL ROCKS

No comments:

If there is one brand which I absolutely adore its Motel.

Their designs and fits are incredible as they are very distinct from other brands.

Their quality is exceptional and above none.

I can't get over how well made their pieces are. The stitching is always impeccable, the material they use is unique and high in quality.

The fact that their designs are not common and easily available with their competitors puts them in a league of their own.

Motelrocks.com
I love it when I am one of few who wears a particular clothing range and not everyone is wearing it as most clothing companies offer a similar range.

Most importantly, the fit of their garments is extremely flattering.

There are three choice of outfits I just had to share with you.

Rest assured you will not be able to resist purchasing them as they are MUST have pieces.

I wanted to divide them in three categories to give you some range in choice.


DAY TO EVENING OUTFIT

Acro Unitard in Chinese Moon
Retails at £35
BUY HERE

Available in S to XL

 Acro Unitard in Chinese Moon by motelrocks.com

This garment screams BUY ME. It's a brown colour range unitard with Chinese moon symbols.

I love the print on this unitard.

Most importantly the fit is extremely flattering. It's definitely an outfit with attitude. 

It exhibits a bodycon fit with a scoop neckline, think straps and a longline short. 

What's incredible about this unitard is that it gives cleavage the perfect support even without having a bra on.

 Acro Unitard in Chinese Moon by motelrocks.com

With plenty of festivals coming up this would make a great contender for your wardrobe. 

This outfit would be even perfect for Coachella.

This piece not only looks great but also is extremely comfortable.

 Acro Unitard in Chinese Moon by motelrocks.com

I love in how many ways you can style this. You can style it both up and down with ease, making it a great piece of you want to take it from casual day wear to edgy night wear.

You could even wear trousers on top to use it as bodysuit acting as a top.

 Acro Unitard in Chinese Moon by motelrocks.com
When it comes to sizing I chose an M being size 8-10, but I recommend that if you are in between sizes you go for a size down so in this case an S, as the mid section sits slightly baggy on me.

For those who are interested the material used for this print is mainly cotton and only 5% elastane.

Crosena Swing Dress in Solar System Black

Retails at £37BUY HERE

XS to XL

Crosena Swing Dress in Solar System Black by motelrocks.com
The Crosena swing dress is one of my favourite day dresses which also can be styled up to wear in the evenings.

The dress is viscose in material and has a solar system striking print. The fact that it's viscose makes it soft and flowing.

This dress screams PRETTY all over. This is also not only a dress that you can wear day to night but also makes another great festival outfit.

Crosena Swing Dress in Solar System Black by motelrocks.com
I love that the swing dress has loose swing fit, it has a button down front, a strap detail at the back and beautiful V neckline.

The size I got was an M but it fits perfectly as it's quite loose and not tight fitted.

You can style the Crosena swing dress with a leather thick waist belt to give it a complete different look.


Crosena Swing Dress in Solar System Black by motelrocks.com
The simple word beauty can't describe fully the print and design of the Crosena swing dress.

I'm so happy this stunning dress is part of my Motel Rocks collection.

Kozue Mini Dress in Red

Retails at
£40.00
BUY HERE


S to XL

Kozue Mini Dress in Red by motelrocks.com
The Kozue mini dress comes in a total of 5 different colour designs. I went for red as red is one of my favourite dress colours.

This dress is a silky type of dress which is with no doubt an evening or party dress.

Kozue Mini Dress in Red by motelrocks.com

The design and fit are extremely sensual. It's virtually impossible to be able to wear a bra with this one. 

However, how it's designed it holds everything in the right place. I advise that if you are shy, you should wear nipple covers as it is silky in consistency.

Kozue Mini Dress in Red by motelrocks.com
Again, as per all their pieces this outfit is extremely flattering. Size M in this piece fitted me like a glove.

The Kozue Mini dress in red is a very enticing piece if you are looking for a show stopper especially with Valentines day coming up.

FINAL VERDICT

I was not only impressed by the quality of the material but also by the fit of ALL three pieces. 

Did you hear that? Not one of them, not two but ALL three!!!!!!!!!!!!

I recommend Motelrocks.com highly and it's the perfect online store if you are looking to purchase high quality outfits.

Dresses and outfits inspo by motelrocks.com

With all the festivals coming up and valentines day , it's the MUST GO TO for your upcoming purchases.

On another note, would you be interested in a Youtube video haul for Motelrocks.com ?

Have you ever bought Motelrocks.com pieces? If so what do you think of them? If not what did you think of how they look? 

These pieces were kindly given to me for review purposes, however all opinions are truthful and my own.


EXCLUSIVE : AT THE EXECUTIVE CHEFS TABLE PAOLO SABA AT THE OBIA RESTAURANT IN PURLEY

1 comment:
It is with great honour that me and my mistery B were invited to dine at the executive chef's table at Obia restaurant in Purley.

The Obia restaurant is an Italian Restaurant.

For those of you who don't know who the executive chef is at the Obia restaurant , it's Paolo Saba.

Paolo Saba has over 28 years of professional cooking experience. He has worked alongside Matthew Harris and Gordon Ramsey. Paolo has worked for the notorious Mr. Mohamed Al Fayed as a private chef, as well as for the Chelsea and the Fulham Football club. The list of celebrities who has worked for is extensive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Paolo Saba is not only an executive chef but also A CELEBRITY CHEF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 


We had the honour of being at his table.

For those of you who rather watch the video of our experience rather than read on.

THE OBIA RESTAURANT

The name of the restaurant was given in connection to the Sardinian Olive, Obia. The restaurant was created in order to bring the real essence of italian food to the area of Purley. 

AT THE EXECUTIVE CHEFS TABLE PAOLO SABA AT THE OBIA RESTAURANT IN PURLEY
The decor is impeccable.

The restaurant front is a very modern shade of grey. They have a seating area at the front of the Obia restaurant which is perfect for the summer time. 

As you enter the place on your left you will find that they have a beautiful bar which you can wait at before you are seated.

AT THE EXECUTIVE CHEFS TABLE PAOLO SABA AT THE OBIA RESTAURANT IN PURLEY
The colour theme of the decoration is a combination of pure elegance. They have greys, rouge and prussian blues. 

The Obia restaurant have just inaugurated the back area, which has a completely different theme to the interior. It's an covered open area which is heated by heat lamps so rest assured that you can still keep warm. 

It has a rustic wood theme, with a huge open area where they have an expert pizzaiolo which makes authentic italian pizza. 

AT THE EXECUTIVE CHEFS TABLE PAOLO SABA AT THE OBIA RESTAURANT IN PURLEY

I particularly loved the fact that if you wanted you can dine a la carte inside with that beautiful luxe theme and yet if you wanted a more relaxed evening you can have pizza on the outside.

THE AMBIANCE

Just picture being seated in a beautiful setting with authentic italian music playing in the background.

It is such a worthy experience which exudes Italy from every corner.

AT THE EXECUTIVE CHEFS TABLE PAOLO SABA AT THE OBIA RESTAURANT IN PURLEY

THE FOOD

THE APPETISER

The waitress brought a Tagliere Misto which includes a fine selection of cured meats, smoked Scamorza cheese.

Tagliere misto appetisers at OBIA restaurant in Purley
The cured meats included prosciutto cotto, prosciutto crudo ,mortadella and two types of salami. Together with the Tagliere Misto , a schiacciata was brought!!!!!!!!!!

For those of you who don't know what a schiacciata is, it's almost like a pizza garlic bread type of bread. It is by far one of my favourites, especially when it's served right from the oven!!!!!!!!!

Tagliere misto appetisers at OBIA restaurant in Purley
The presentation as you can tell by the photo is just so well put together!!! 

Definitely delicious , there is also a seafood type of option and a mix of the two if you are not a fan of curated meats.

THE MAIN

As the main we were brought the Linguini with prawns. What I particularly loved about this dish was not only the presentation but the refined flavours which included a hint of chilli and a twist of citrus.

This dish was to die for!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I would definitely order it again! The flavours were addictive! 

Prawn linguine main at OBIA restaurant in Purley
The plate it was served in was deceiving as the portion looked small, but then was I mistaken it was a good portion of food!!!!!!!!!

As I felt getting full I was tempted to put down the fork but I just couldn't!!!!! I WANTED IT ALL!!!!!!!!!!!

Prawn linguine main at OBIA restaurant in Purley

This particular dish was my favourite by far and was the star of my dining experience with Executive Chef Paolo Saba.

THE DESSERT

We were brought a tiramisu and a praline semi freddo. The dessert at Obia restaurant is divine!!!!! They have the right balance of flavours when it comes to their dessert choice.

OBIA restaurant in Purley tiramisu

My personal favourite was the praline semi freddo as it wasn't overly sweet and yet decadent.

OBIA restaurant in Purley praline semifreddo

A BRAND WHICH IS ECO-FRIENDLY

I was surprised with the fact that they have eco friendly straws and only use produce which derives from animals that are not depleting.

This is particularly interesting as this is so important to be conscious of our environment and I can assure you that they are doing their part for the environment too.

FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE VEGETARIANS

All hail, an italian restaurant which caters to vegetarians providing a selection of options specifically for vegetarians!!!!!!!!!!

If you are looking for Italian food but done specifically for vegetarians I urge you to try it and let me know in the comments section below your views.

THE OUTDOOR HEATED PIZZERIA

In light of their inauguration we tried their pizza and I can happily inform you that it's delicious and cost friendly.

We had their DIAVOLA PIZZA which had spicy salamino, peppers and sun dried tomatoes.

Diavola pizza at OBIA restaurant in Purley
If you are looking for a place that also does great cocktails and mocktails this is the hotspot for the area.

The barman created two wonderful mock-tails that were incredible, the literally on fire!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cocktails at bar and lounge at OBIA restaurant in Purley
One is the blue lagoon mocktails which is a sweet fizzy type of mocktail whereas the other was a porn star martini mocktail which a slightly sweet yet creamy passion fruit concoction.

FINAL VERDICT

The Obia restaurant is the perfect balance of elegance in both their food and their decor. I can't thank the executive chef Paolo Saba for this magnificent culinary experience.

I can't stress how much the food is authentically italian cooked with a refined eye and hand.

AT THE EXECUTIVE CHEFS TABLE PAOLO SABA AT THE OBIA RESTAURANT IN PURLEY

In terms of pricing, I was extremely impressed I would have thought they would be double of their actual price.

I highly recommend eating here.

The location is well catered with both buses and trains. There is plenty of parking surrounding the Obia restaurant so if you wanted to drive to the location you would have available parking in the area.

Have you dined at this Purley hot spot? What are your thoughts? Make sure to let me know below in the comments section.
