Home Made Lemonade Plus reincarnate review requested by Zoe

.Home Made Lemonade.
.Seriously Easy to make.

As we are getting into the winter months and the fact that I have already had a cold which lasted a few days. I am trying to do everything I can to avoid getting another one.This lemonade is seriously easy to make and super cheap. So you will have a lot to share and a lot of pennys left.

You will need: 7 lemons, 150g sugar, 225mls water, sprigs of mint. A pan, wooden spoon, glasses, ice cubes, a jug. A juicer or a strong hand.

I got the 7 lemons from asda costing around 27p each.

Peel the zest of 5 lemons.
Put them in a large sauce pan.
Add the 150g of sugar
Add the 225mls of water.
And bring to the boil. Once boiling let simmer for 2 mins.

Whilst this is simmering. Squeeze the juice of the 5 lemons you have peeled. Put the juice into a jug. I got this jug from ikea for around 2.00 and its a heavy good one. I seen the same 1 at asda for around 4pounds though.

Once the sugar has disolved in your sauce pan. Leave to cool until the liquid is cold. Once cold. Seperate the lemon zest from the syrup you have just made. Add this to the jug of lemon juice and leave in the fridge for atleast 1/2 an hour.
Once its been in the fridge for 1/2 an hour... pour some into a class and dilute with tap water or carbonated water (the same way you would dilute squash) add ice cubes and sprigs of mint. Slice the other 2 lemons you sould have and use these for decoration purposes.

Your own LEMONADE.
keep this in mind over xmas =) would be great at parties/ summer faits etc.
And the kids will love this healthy drink. Get them involved with helping you aswell =)
 Beleive me its so delisious its addictive !

Reveiw of Lush's Reincarnate Solid shampoo to revive dark coloured hair.
Dedicated to ZOE who you will see always chattering away on the LUSH Fan Page on Facebook.

Heres what the website says:


Reincarnate brings your sad scalp and your fading dark hair colour back to life! It is the love child of two of our earlier shampoos and combines the scalp treatment of rhassoul mud from the Moroccan Atlas Mountains with Persian red henna to revitalize your colour, plus sedra powder for gloss and condition. It smells like incense wafting from an Eastern temple through the surrounding spice market.

This is 3.75p /100grams of product.

My Thoughts.

First of all I noticed the smell above all else. It smells like the strangest liquish you have ever smelt in your life. But after only 2 washes with the stuff I can say that I have got used to the smell straight away. Once in the shower with this stuff i wet it and started to lather it up which was fairly difficult to do. However I got a small amount on my hand and rubbed that into my hair and this went such a long way! I think as this was the 1st solid shampoo I had used, I was expecting it to be like liquid shampoo. What teh product gives off when u rub it is more than adequate and I realise this now. I left it on the shelf in teh shower as well and I am really pleased to say it did not slide around, it didnt disintergrate, nor did it stick its self to the shelf.After washing and drying my hair stayed soft, smelt nice, didnt dry my hair out nor make it greasy. I am looking forward to seeing my hair colour brought back to life a bit within the next few weeks. I will post on any results I see when I see them basically. I think for the use I know that I will be getting from this it is more than worth 3.75 =)

Thanks Lush absolutely brilliant.

Haul LUSH, primark & River Island & Boots + Foundation Rip OFF !

Hey I decided to go to lush inroder to get my free face mask as I had x5 clean and empty pots.
I seen river island had a sale and all items in the sale had an additional 50% off !! Only for today and tomorrow though! - so had to go there.. I dont know if this is online aswell you could check.

I went to boots because I needed new foundation - trying a bourjois one this time. Never had a bourjois one before! + Foundation Rip off...

Anyway lets get on with it...

                          I have have here two new items I have not tried yet... which are too drunk (emotibomb) which was 2.25 & once a year massage bar which was around 4.00. I have here 'up you gets' emotibomb aswell. Which ive had twice before had a little bit of a cold a few weeks ago and used this and I could actually smell it and it was so nice... so thought i would get a back up for the winter.

So I decided to get cosmetic catastrophie as this has blueberrys in.. smells like a gorgeous yoghurt =) I have not had this one before so can not wait to try it =), I also got R&B to try and save my damaged dyed hair. And I have used the shower jellys before but decided to get calacas as this is a lush haloween special... I also got one for my bf he has the green one.

Thats it from lush... On to Primark !!

 Little Glow Cheek : Cheeky little name I think... =)
Lovely Blusher really impressed with the colours and the mirror is a magnifing mirror. 5 strips of different colour. 1st strip is like a goldy white, 2nd is a really light pink, 3rd is a dark brown, 4th is a really nice light brown, 5th is a dark pink. ( All look really pigmented) I got this for 1.00 ! in the sale, Not the 3 pound that it says on the sticker!!
If thats not enough of a bargain... It says it has ingredients which help care for your skin!
I have looked at the ingredients and im guessing they mean.

 Travel set. x3 bottles x3 pots and a small funnel.. I brought this so I can give family and friends samples of my luish products/ carry lush products around with me. Etc. The whole set cost 1pound! Normal Price !

 I have one of these purses already, but my mum seen it and liked it so its part of her xmas present now. And the bracelet with roses in it is just gorgeous !! Both of these were 2pounds each!! yay for primark !!

I also got 2 plunge bras from primark and a night shirt but I wont show you them =) the bras were 5pounds each anyway and the night shirt was in the sale at 3.00.

Next Riverisland....
This top was in the sale at 10 pounds but with the 50% off on top of the sale price (two day only special) It was 5pounds!! I dont think I could have got it from primark for that. Hopefully I will use it and it wont just be at the back of the wardrobe... =)
I also got a coat style jacket for 7.50 but it didnt photograph well so I didnt upload it.

Next Boots... New Foundation...

So I am trying this new bourjois foundation  which is called 'healthy mix' and has Abricot, melon - hydration, Apple - anti-oxydant and ginger to tone. This was on offer I think you get 2 pounds off ! Not exactly sure though it is 30mls... in shade 55 as I have a darker hair colour so need darker foundation. This has a pump mechanism which I think sends the product all the way up.

Anyway The rip off stage... Look how much foundation is left in the maybelline bottle that I can not get out for the life of me... I intend to smash the bottle which is glass and put the product I get out in one of the pots I got from primark. I asked the lady in boots if the 30mls it says u get takes into account for the bit that is left at the bottom and she says she dont think so No. WHAT A RIP OFF. Im never going to get one of these style bottels again: Whilst the pump system is flashy: ITS A RIP OFF !! - I will be contacting maybelline hopefully to find out about this. I love maybelline foundation but I cant put up with this... x
