In Love With Fashion.

Hi there, Detox.

Admittedly, my overall health is absolutely fine.
My diet always contains Fruit & Veg as and when it can. However, the colder months have resulted in me staying indoors and not being as active as I used to be.
Instead, I've snuggled up most evenings after work, snacking away with my feet up.
It's the season of indulgence so I don't feel too guilty.
I just hate that my body doesn't feel as healthy as it did before.
So i've started a slight Detox today.
By slight.. I'm drinking some healthy tea and juices but eating normal meals. Most people when doing a detox usually only eat and drink Fruit & Veg for a few days but I'm not in need of an intense detox.

I've started the detox off today by drinking Lemon tea.. (Slice of lemon in some hot water! EASY PEASY..LEMON SQUEEZY ;-) )


Health Benefits:
  • Great for your immune system
  • Great for weight loss.. Gets rid of those naughty food cravings.
  • Helps with any digestion problems
  • Cleanses your insides, gets rid of any bad toxins and waste in your body
  • Is known to make your skin look clearer.
A simple tea like this has ALL of these health benefits! I'm excited to start cleansing. There's something so therapeutic about knowing you're ridding your body of all those bad toxins.


Green Monsters!
I've been drinking Green monsters now and again. I was introduced to these by Roshni of http://littlemissrosh.blogspot.co.uk/
I enjoy healthy drinks and snacks, Usually people look at green drinks and say "URGHHHHH.. What is that?" "How can you drink that?" Whereas, I see a healthy drink or snack and am always intrigued to know if they taste nice or not.

Ingredients vary but I use:
1 Banana
1 cup of raw spinach
1 tsp Wheatgrass powder (You can purchase this from all good health food stores)
1 cup of Milk

You pop it all into a blender and TA-DA..

Benefits:
Wheatgrass powder - Cleanses your body, helps build your immune system up.
Banana's - Great for your energy levels, potassium and also keeps you fuller for longer.
Spinach - Full of Vitamins & Antioxidants.

If you don't like Bananas for example, go onto the main website and find a smoothie more ideal for you.

I won't blog until the New Year now so I just want to thank you for all the support and feedback this year.
Here's to 2013! Hoping to make UnLeeshd much bigger and better for you all!
Lotsa Love & Well Wishes.. Leesh of UnLeeshd x x x



SUPER QUICK Christmas Biscuits.

I made some yummy biscuits this morning. Thought I'd share the simplest of recipes here incase you wanted to make some before Christmas Day :)

Ingredients
100g Soft Butter
100g Caster Sugar
275g Plain Flour
1/2 Tsp Cinnamon Powder
1 Beaten Egg

Method
1. Beat the butter and sugar till fluffy with the cinammon powder.



2. Carry on whisking and bit by bit add the egg


3. Fold in the flour until you get a light dough, you may need to add a little more flour if its still sticky.

4. Roll it out and use your different shaped cutters to make your shapes, pop on a grease proof papered tray (Ha!)

5. Pop in the oven for 10 mins until golden :)



MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL! I'm off to watch THE SNOWMAN! My fave :)

Kitoko Hair Oil.

ITS NEARLY CHRISTMAS PEOPLE..& I'm not feeling one bit festive. Ive decorated the house, eaten Christmas cake, made Christmas treats, wrapped presents, even worn my Christmas pyjamas, for some reason it still hasn't kicked into me!
I'm hoping by 4pm tomorrow when I finish work I'll be in the Christmas spirit :)

Some of you might have seen me put a message on my Facebook page yesterday regarding hair oils.
I had my hair cut yesterday as the ends were dead. Long hair is hard to maintain. It was in need of a major maintenance cut.

I asked my hair dresser if she used any hair oils on her customers. She recommended this oil as well as recommending to go to Afro-Carribean stores. She said they sell Coconut and Argan oils which are good for the hair. Being an Indian I know a few good hair oils too but I've always stayed away as some have very strong scents!


What does Kitoko do?
Kitoko contains Karite aka Shea Butter & Argan oil along with Vitamins A & E.
Shea Butter & Argan oil are both good for moisturising. The oil nourishes your hair especially if you suffer from quite dry and frizzy hair.
Long hair is a chore, I won't lie. I blow dry mine everyday and straighten it every other day so mine tends to dry out a lot! It's my fault I know but I haven't got the time to naturally dry it.

This oil sounds good to me. I've literally just tried it out, I won't see much of a difference yet but I will do a second review on this in two weeks time. The formula is very light. Like a serum really, goes onto your hand like a oil and is as lightweight as water. You just put it into the ends of your hair when it's wet/damp :)

I was luckily given this to try out to see if I noticed a difference in my hair. This 10ml bottle itself is £5-6.
The normal sized bottle (95ml) is about £18-20.
I think this very pricey for a hair oil but I've read reviews on this product and a lot of people said when they first saw the price they weren't too sure but after using it for a few weeks they thought it was worth every penny.

Have any of you used any hair oils? I'd love to know as I'm looking to use hair oils a lot now. I want my hair to be as healthy as possible!
