Music Monday

This is probably a familiar story to most of you: ''I went on youtube just for one track, but ended up discovering 5 new artists''. Well that's what happens to me often, so today I want to share my current playlist with you. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Hello & yes we're back!

I've been thinking for a while now about all the things that make me happy. Writing for paintmyteacup is one of them. Just yesterday I spoke with my sister Alice and we've agreed it's time for a comeback. As our schedules kept growing our posts became rare, but hey we're back right where we stopped. 

Just to give you a quick update on what's been going on with my life. I started my own business with portable chargers/powerbanks and building my own brand from scratch (www.simplebatt.com). I also decided that 2015 will be the year I finish my master degree on Media studies and popular culture. Music keeps being an important part of my life (more info ), I still love to travel and try out new restaurants, so as for me I feel nothing has really changed. Hopefully I am just a little bit more experienced & wiser :)

I am sure Alice will also give you and update on her life very soon.

My Opinion: NEOM Luxury Organics

Dear friends, 

today I would like to talk to you about the body cream, that I've recently discovered from the brand called Neom luxury Organics! 

First of all, I would like to clarify, that this is solely my own opinion and therefore I would like to share with you my own experience. 

Well, one of my main beauty products, that I use on daily basis, it includes the body cream, which for me is very essential, as I need to use it after every shower, because my skin tends to dry very fast. So after seeing Neom products everywhere, I was tempted to try it out and I have to say that so far I am very pleased with the body cream. After the use of it, my skin remained soft for the whole day. The scent of it is also lovely, very light and calming. This particular product comes in a packaging of 200ml and it costs £35 on their official website, but is currently on promotion on Lookfantastic.com, where they sell it for £21 otherwise they sell it for £40 (lookfantastic.com, is where I got it from). So yes, it quite expensive, especially for the small packaging that they offer, which I'm going to finish it in couple of weeks. But then again sometimes when it comes to beauty products I don't like to save too much, because my skin not only tends to dry out very fast but I also get the allergies, so i test different products to see what suits me best, and so far Neom  gave me great satisfactions as it left my skin smooth for the whole day! Another great thing is that Neom offers 100% pure essential oils and are not tested on animals. Apart form the body cream you can also get the candles, bath oils, hand lotions, body scrubs, etc... I also really like the packaging and gift sets, which in my opinion make perfect presents for family or friends. 

My final vote is  4/5, and that is just because for the price of it, it really comes in a small packaging. However I will definitely continue to buy Neom Luxury Organics and I cannot wait to try out their other products.
