Celebrations were in order last week at the launch of the Decléor's new and first UK boutique and day spa, in Westbourne Grove!

If you're not familiar with Decléor, they are a brand with more than 40 years under their belt, and are known for their unique holistic approach to skincare. 

...Decléor scientifically selects and masterfully blends premium Essential Oils to deliver for each skin type, targeted and proven skincare solutions...blending 100% natural essential oils and cold pressed botanical oils.
(Ugh! You gotta love natural skincare).

Their new home is located in the heart of Notting Hill and I was pleased to be invited to their cosy little haven in the heart of ultra chic West London. First impressions of Decléor's new establishment blew me away. With an all round ethereal look, light yellow and smatterings of flowers and vibrant greens, the decor was breathtaking. Even though, the usual British gloom hung over the city and everybody around, inside, it could easily have been in the thick of summer because of the light and airy ambience. I just loved it!

The day spa has three treatment rooms, certainly the go-to for receiving amazing body and face pampering.

In keeping with Decleor's ethos of being au naturale, delicious raw vegan canapés and kale cocktails worked up a treat through out the evening.

Never one to skimp on luxury, we were treated to our very own bespoke miniatures of their signature products. As a stickler for the details, I particularly loved being gifted a personalised bottle of one of their famous essential oil blends.

As you already know, I've been delving more into natural skincare so learning about Decléor has been an eye-opener. I can't wait to try all of my shiny new products. 

Have you tried any of their products? And if so, what do you think of them?

I'll be reviewing their products in the coming weeks, but for more information, please head to their website.

Something I don't normally share on here (maybe I should start?) is fitness!
 I enjoy staying active, I work out three times a week and eat right. But it hasn't always been like this. From being that sports girl in secondary school, joining after school activities. I remember loosing motivation when I started college. I then decided to get right back into the habit of being active again by signing up to a local gym. Since then, I have worked on being the best version of myself and it's totally worth it.

My invitation to the Kimberly Wyatt for Zakti Activewear launch party, couldn't have come at a better time. I'm always on the lookout for some new, cool gym wear and becoming more acquainted with other brands.

If you are not familiar with Kimberly Wyatt, she is a dancer and choreographer, best known for being a member of the popular girl group Pussycat Dolls.

This is all in celebration of her new collaboration with Zakti Activewear. A range developed for women and girls to encourage and empower them to
'Be You, Be Fearless, Be Authentic!'

I'm more of a black on black gym wearer, I tend to stay away from colours, but the marble print set was a stand out favourite of mine out of the range!

On the whole, the event was an enjoyable evening. Zakti Acitvewear have such gorgeous, quality pieces and I am officially a fan!

I get to pretend to be a model every now and then...and this dress certainly brought it out of me. Hehe!

 There is nothing that I love than wearing a free, flirty outfit on a spring/summers day. 
Plus, with how warm it was recently, I used the opportunity to take some outfits shots in the perfect street of Regents Park. The sun was just about setting and Zipporah (dope photographer and she happens to be my bestie), managed to capture a hazy, ethereal feel to these shots.

I bought this beautiful wrap dress on the Topshop website, on sale! I fell in love with the gorgeous floral print and the colour, a soft shade of pink-y peach, is very reminiscent of a kimono style. 
I tied the featured belt to snatch in the waist and paired it with subtle, nude court heels to complete the look! For more of an edge, you can pair with ankle boots or better yet skinny jeans.

So whose slaying with me?
Hope you enjoyed this post!
