Cruelty Free Skincare: My favourite Lush Products

I’ve spoken previously in posts about switching products over to cruelty free beauty and makeup products. But I must admit my vanity took over a little and I found myself still buying products that had been tested on animals. Then back in July, something changed.  After a weekend spent watching Netflix documentaries, I decided I couldn’t carry on the way I was and I finally made the decision to become vegetarian with the intent to be fully plant-based eventually. I’ve begun making little changes in my lifestyle and I no longer eat meat or fish, I drink plant-based milk 90%…

Jewellery Box: Finding affordable silver jewellery pieces

Now I’m the type of person who when it comes to jewellery it’s all or nothing. I either have really big bold statement necklaces and earrings, or super small and dainty jewellery. It’s rare I go for anything that’s kind of in the middle. So when Jewellery box got in touch asking if I’d like to try some of their pieces I thought this would be a great chance to try something different. But typical me I opted for my usual dainty bits of silver jewellery as they had so many beautiful pieces it was daft to choose anything different.…

Meet and Treat: Newcastle’s Hidden Gem

I adore food like I really love it. When I go anywhere new the first thing I do is find out where is good to eat, I can’t help myself, I’m a foodie.

Over the past year or so I have been trying to visit new places and try new food instead of my usual eateries all the time. Meet and Treat is one of those places that is quite hidden away and easy…

Girls Night In – Hoar Cross Hall

  Last month I was lucky enough to head down to Hoar Cross Hall with Hannah, Helen and Chloe to experience the girls night in package and enjoy a little bit of pampering. This was my first trip to a Spa, shocking I know. So I was really excited to see what all the fuss was about – and I can assure you I was not disappointed.       Hoar Cross Hall is a Luxury Spa Resort and Hotel based in Burton-Upon-Trent in Staffordshire. Because of this, we set off quite early as we expected the drive down to take about 3 and a half hours, unfortunately, due…

CarnLIVal – Hope Street Hotel Liverpool

Last month Yasmina and I jumped on a train and travelled down to Liverpool for the CarnLIVal event hosted by Katy and Sam. This is the first time I’ve ventured to a different city for a blogger event so was a little nervous, but I can safely say the 5.30am start and 7 hours of my day spent on a train were totally worth it. I think one of the main reasons I decided to make the trip was because I’m feeling quite disconnected with the local blogging community. With an influx of fake followers, Instagram bots and bitchy cliques, it doesn’t…
