How to De-Stress For a Perfect Nights Sleep

HOW TO  DE-STRESS AND PREP FOR A PERFECT NIGHTS SLEEP


There isn’t enough time in the day is there? We want to get everything done all at once before we get our vital sleep. Sometimes sleeping isn’t even a priority. I know I can completely relate, as a busy day for me will leave me with less than 5 hours sleep some nights. Obviously, this is terrible and I nearly ALWAYS end up crashing one day out of the week. All the missed sleep that week comes right back to bite me in the middle of the day, my skin will break out and I’ll feel even more stressed.
This is why I came up with a night-time routine to de-stress, relax and help me catch some major ZzZzzZZzzz.

DRINK A DETOX TEA

After drinking detox tea, I always feel refreshed. That same feeling after coming out of a shower, is the same sensation I feel after drinking this tea. My favourite is the organic detox by Pukka. A detox tea contains Aniseed, fennel, cardamom and licorice root, to help flush away those toxins while lightly catering to your  sweet tooth. Infuse for 15 mins and drink up!

 SKINCARE

I use the Clinique 3 Step system tailored for my own skin type, but what really makes the difference to my skin is my Magnitone LondonFacial Cleansing brush. I can clean my face, apply a facemask and more, but for some reason it still isn’t clean. When I use the Magnitone, I find that makeup and dirt slides right off my skin. You don’t realize how filthy your skin is until you see the dirt drip off onto the brush. It scrubs layers much deeper than your hands can get to making sure there is no left-over makeup or dirt left on your skin.

 I also use the Bubble-gum flavour lip scrub by LUSH. Before using this I would constantly have dry or chapped lips in the morning, I didn’t realise that a simple daily exfoliate could drastically improve the moisture and the colour of my lips. Following this I apply The Body Shop Grapeseed Glossing Serum to my hair.

MULTI MASK

I always multi mask as my skin type VARIES throughout my face. I tend to break out around my jaw, chin and forehead, which is why I like to use the Retexturizing Rose Clay Mask by Origins. Due to my breakouts constantly causing acne scars, this mask is perfect for a deep clean and refining my skins texture. In all the other areas, I love to apply the Chinese Ginseng and Rice Clarifying Polishing Mask by The Body Shop. This mask is perfect for providing a deep clean and a soft finish.

NIGHT TIME JAMZ

No routine is complete without the relaxing music to put me in the chill mood. I Made a perfect throwback R&B Jamz playlist to tailor to my night mood.  Making a playlist on Spotify is free and easy! You should try it, plus it's the perfect prep for your shower karaoke session.


STEAMY SHOWER ALWAYS DOES THE TRICK

Do you remember always falling asleep after a hot bath as a child? Nothing has changed as an adult. The hot water is soothing all over and will leave you begging for your bed. Personally, I prefer a steamy shower. Baths are time consuming and as I mentioned before, there really isn’t enough time in the day.


I Love to use the two-day moisture shower oil by Sanctuary SpaCovet Garden. It has a slightly warming effect (if your showers aren’t hot enough already). When you rub it into your skin it feels like you’re having a massage. It’s heavenly for sure, and my skin feels silky smooth after using it. It doesn’t quite last two days for me, as my skin is naturally dry and dehydrated. I found that the softness will last roughly 5-8 hours.

A COMFORTABLE MATTRESS

This is probably the most important part. You can’t get a good night’s rest in an uncomfortable bed! If your mattress is super uncomfortable (like mine) try laying on some fluffy pillows, or consider getting a new mattress. Leesa Mattress are five-star quality, fit for celebrities like Michael Phelps and of course the Kings and Queens you are! You should check them out!


SO THAT’S MY NIGHTTIME ROUTINE

How to make the perfect summer Pimms- Tips from Bohemias head chef Steve Smith

Tips for the perfect Summer Pimms- Stealstylist.com

How To Make The Perfect Summer Pimms

Summer in England has approached faster than we thought!  It’s time for the perfect BBQs , fun in the sun, family time and of course Drinks! In true English style you should celebrate with a refreshing jug of Pimms!
The quintessentially English beverage boasts a recognizable tawny colour and a delicious blend of citrus fruits, offering a familiar taste of summer.
But how can we make the perfect jug with an effortless taste?

Bohemia’s Head Chef Steve Smith has provided a round-up of top tips to ensure you’re serving the perfect party Pimms this sunny season.


  • 1.    Fruit Fusion

Don’t overload your Pimms with fruit. Instead, pick a few strong flavours that complement each other. An unusual flavour combination that works well is Pomegranate and Basil. Alternatively, take your Pimms to super food heights with the quirky addition of trendy Acai berries.

  • 2.    Herbal Remedy

If you’re using herbs such as basil and mint, crush the leaves before adding them to your drink. This will maximise the aroma and leave your Pimms perfectly seasoned.

  • 3.     Cue the Cranberry

Those with a sweet tooth might like to add a splash of cranberry juice, or opt for flavoured lemonade for an extra boost.

  • 4.    Ice, Ice, Baby

Get creative with your ice by freezing flowers into your ice cube tray. However, try to limit the ice to a few cubes to ensure the Pimms isn’t too diluted by the time it comes to drinking it!

  • 5.     Sugar-coat it

Sprinkle a little lemon juice and sugar over the fruit before you add them to your drink. Let the fruit pieces stand for ten minutes so they macerate and then add them to the liquid at the last minute, to save them from going soggy.

Exclusive menu tasting event at Café Rouge Mailbox

 


Hey everyone! 

This week I was kindly invited to a Summer menu tasting event at the prestigious French restaurant Café Rouge. It's located in the heart of The Birmingham Mailbox , with stunning views of the city center. 
mailbox birmingham Cafe Rouge , by abbigayle warner 


We started off our night with a taste of their Gins , I tried out the Elderflower , then followed with a much greener alternative the Cucumber and Watermelon 👌🏾 
They then provided us with some mini starters which looked too good to eat ! 
Following this we grabbed a sampler plate of various meats and cheese, the perfect compliment to our gin . 
For my main I ordered the Sirloin Steak Frites , which was made to perfection . I like my steak well done and sometimes chefs can over cook the meat , then it becomes bards to eat . However this steak was fantastic . I paired this with red wine , honestly not my cup of tea , nevertheless it was nice to try . 
I then opted for a French Garden Fizz Mocktail , which was hands down the best drink of the night ! 
Following this we enjoyed a dessert sampler which featured a mini taster of their best desserts! 

Overall my experience at this restaurant was great and I could not recommend it more . 

I posted on my Instagram story throughout the night which you can watch here
