A Nespresso Coffee Machine for Christmas? #CoffeeWithCurrys


For any coffee lovers, the best Christmas present is probably a quality coffee machine, so that to enjoy a fresh cup at home every morning. My top choice has to be Nespresso. I own their smallest machine called Magimix. It was around £80, very affordable price tag, with coffee capsule averaging about 30p each. I love my machine so much that you could imagine my excitement when I was  invited by Joes Blog to attend the Nespresso x Currys event. 

We learnt about coffee tasting, the concept behind Nespresso’s branding, had (clumsy) attempts to the latte art and even tried to make our own coffee cocktails!
I found the coffee tasting session particularly interesting. It was similar to wine tasting, that we smell and slurpped the liquid to taste the full flavour, with chocolate matching. The content of coffee capsule was carefully considered by coffee-masters, they decided what blend and how much powder to fill a pod in order to maximise the flavour and fragrant, so that consumer could have the best coffee experience at home.
Another interesting session was the branding session when we learnt that George Clooney not only was the face of Nespresso, but he also actually sat on the board and contributed ideas! Of course, It would have been a more “constructive” session if Mr Clooney could be at the event to tell us all about his work himself!

The afternoon was finished with two delicious coffee cocktails that we made ourselves – Vanilla Sky (on the left) was absolutely delicious! It tasted just like my favourite Baileys. I included these two simple yet fantastic recipes below, that you can impress your family at Christmas!

Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum

Lately I have been obsessed with the Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum . In the past I tried the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, it was alright but I didn’t find the result that amazing. So when I got a sample of for this Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum, I didn’t have high hopes … But how wrong I was! The sample bottle lasted me for two generous weeks and after that I rushed out to get the full size. Although it is called a serum, it is a light milky lotion texture, it is easily absorbed into skin and it feels moisturising. With the sample bottle, I used it every night after my cleansing routine. I can see visible results to my face after two weeks. My blemish marks are significantly lighter (my main concern) and the skin tone for the rest of my face is visibly more even.  Now I have the full size bottle (30ml, also available in 50ml size), I am going to follow the instructions to use it both day and night. Use it at night to reduce
