Kerastase is a hair care regime that claims to be different
I’m in danger of becoming a Kerastase junkie. On of the lovely perks of my job is that you get to try all sorts of fabulous treatments and the folks at Kerastase have let me try their rituals not once but twice. I have to say I’m a total convert and am considering buying some of their home care products with my hard-earned cash.

Post-Ramadan Eating Plan - Cleanse up your act!

Slice fruits into iced water for a healthy hit of hyrdration
Ramadan should be an exercise in self-control and restraint. Instead it’s the month of soaring ghee consumption, groaning iftar tables and terrible food choices. You may just have got away with eating badly thanks to daytime fasting but it’s super-easy to pile on the pounds after Eid. Ditch those Ramadan Food Crimes if you want to avoid the dreaded post-Eid Belly.
