Get The Look
,London Last Night
Did anyone make it to the Sure Improve Rooms last night? When we got an exclusive invitation to come and preview the Sure Improve Rooms we jumped at the chance!
Sure had set up a total compressed makeover with masterclasses in fashion, beauty, nutrition and life skills with interview Coach Margaret Buj. There was even a photographer on hand to show us how to snap the perfect selfie. Check out how we got on…
Check out these gorgeous bottles of antiperspirant- all in new scents cotton, clear aqua and bright. The best thing about these babies is that they last just as long as the big size bottles except they’re squeezed into 75ml bottles of perfection! Meaning we can pop these bad boys into our purse without weighing it down. It also means we can jet off to Ibiza without out the worry of liquid restrictions. Hurrah.
Upon entering the beautiful georgian house nestled in Fitzroy Square, London we kicked things off right with this season’s most wanted cocktails. Crushed strawberries with basil garnish and a cotton floss martini. Yum!
Whilst exploring the improve rooms, we met up with fashion commentator and stylist Grace Woodward. Some of you may know her as a former judge on Britain and Ireland’s Next Top Model. She gave me the low down on autumn and winter’s key pieces…
This is one of my favourite picks. A look-at-me pink coat. As Grace explained, we’re all so used to picking up the dull’ol black and grey coats that we’re naturally attracted to during those cold blistering months, but she suggests expanding your wardrobe and being explorative. Touche!
Checking out more AW13 key pieces… there was a beautiful textured vintage dress that Grace calls ‘fuzzy logic’. She’s really wants to encourage people to try different textures and colours this season. Check out this patent leather skirt in Ivory which I’m holding above (love it!). A fabric you’d automaticlly assume is dark and punk can be chic and easily made into an ultra-fashion day or night outfit.

We also got to meet the lovely celebrity nutritionist, Madeleine Shaw, for a one to one sesh on all things nutritious. When we asked her about the biggest celebrity crazes she promised that the ‘no-sugar’ diet is the way forward. So many foods are processed these days that even the healthiest looking ones are jam packed with sugar. She made us some of her delish bite size treats that seemed naughty, but really weren’t! Her Raw Coconut and Apricot Bliss Balls were to die for. I wish I snapped a photo of these delicious treats, but as you may have gathered they went down in seconds. They tasted like a glazed doughnuts- no lie. Try Madeleine’s Bliss Balls recipe here and make sure to dip them in chai seeds, pistachios or goji berries for that extra kick of goodness.
Try a delicious raw pad Thai made with zucchini noodles, a dash of sesame seeds and coconut milk dressing. Some very handy tips for staying away from that low-fat dressing (which is more than likely sugar packed).
So after trying Madeleine’s Coconut Berry Smoothie she inspired us to try something of our own… this is what we call the Green and Fruity Smoothie. Greens, apples, plums, bananas and a squirt of oat milk.
We finished it off with a handful of frozen berries and some ice cubes. Absolutely delicious and so antioxidant rich. Will you be trying a smoothie of your own?
