Iced tea fever

I’m a huge iced tea as many of you already know. My country is famous for its tea and well it might sound very typical of me to be a fan but I’m more of a flavoured iced tea fan so please don’t judge me 😉

Coco Veranda, one of my favourite hangouts recently introduced a range of flavoured iced teas and I thought I’d give a flavour a week a try. Monday morning I happened to have an interview scheduled in the same building so I decided to have the peach and orange iced tea to go. Truthfully speaking I did not like it very much even after many stirs and adding more water back at home. I notified the cafe/restaurent manager and he asked me to come back for a complementary iced tea of my choice.

I headed back on Tuesday. My husband and his two cousins joined us and I decided to go for the blueberry and vanilla iced tea. It was fabulous. I love the berry flavour at the back of my tongue after one sip and the light lingering vanilla flavour fused with the tea in it. Great combination I must say I’d definitely be going in for some more soon.

Here’s a pic of the iced tea –

Scrub-a-dub-dub!

Face, body and foot scrub
Face, body and foot scrub

So… here’s the thing; everyone uses a scrub of some sort on some part of their body right? A face scrub, a body scrub and possibly a foot scrub too, so I was thinking of creating a tag where bloggers talk about their favourite types in one post. I’ve never created a tag before and I don’t even know if such a tag already exists but I do want to talk about my favourites so here goes 😀

Face Scrub

I’m a huge Clean & Clear fan so my favourite face scrub is the Morning Burst Facial Scrub. This is an oil-free scrub that comes with bursting beads, and not only actually wakes you thanks to its fruity aroma but also exfoliates and nourishes with vitamin c and ginseng. I don’t use it on a daily basis although it does claim it is ideal for daily use. I actually prefer using it on alternative days just to allow my skin to breathe occasionally. The first week I used this product, I noticed a drastic change in my skin. It looked fresh and bright after just three uses and I love that it leaves my face smelling all fruity too. The back description continues to say this formula gets rid of dullness and tired looking skin to reveal softer and more radiant skin and I for one can definitely vouch for that because it works on my skin. The formula is really not too thick and heavy so a little bit is really all I need to scrub on to my face. I generally focus on my nose, cheeks and chin because those are my problem areas and after a couple of uses, my face does show a great difference.

Body Scrub

This one is a new favourite but I can say for sure that it would remain the same for a long time. I recently discovered The Body Shop Limited Edition Blueberry Body Scrub Gel. I know it’s not available any longer and I’m totally upset with myself for not having purchased more because I am totally in love with this scrub. It’s got the most amazing texture that is a combination between a typical body scrub and a shower gel. I don’t know if that makes any sense but if you’re someone who has tried this out, you’ll definitely understand what I’m trying to say. Second reason why I love this is purely because of the fruit blueberry fragrance. I wasn’t a huge fan of blueberries but one whiff of this and I was totally hooked. I use this very sparingly because I don’t want to finish it but if you really want a good all-over-the-body scrub, you do have to be a little generous with the amount you take out. It includes little blueberry seeds that exfoliate well and leave your body feeling soft, fragrant and clean.

Foot Scrub

My go-to foot scrub with always remain a local favourite and that is the Spa Ceylon Green Mint Cooling Foot Scrub. I honestly believe that there is nothing to beat this product because it is made of all natural ingredients including lime peel to help remove rough patches on the feet, peppermint and lemongrass to cool and refresh, margosa and virgin coconut oil to nourish, soothe and relax. I do not think there is any other foot scrub out there that includes all these amazing ingredients and does and amazing job. I like to use the scrub after a foot soak (I also use the Spa Ceylon Green Mint Reviva Foot Soak) and give my feet a good relaxing session every once in a while. The aroma is divine and I am a sucker for green mint and lemongrass so this is more than ideal for someone like me. Most of all, I love that my feet are squeaky clean, refreshed and fragrant all day after I use it.

I’m also tagging some the fellow bloggers I follow to share their favourites and maybe even continue the tag 🙂
