Get Foofed | Blow Dry at Foofed, Sutton Coldfield

Foofed Curly Blow Dry Review

Happy Valentine’s Day, one and all! Now, rather than waste a post on nause-inducing romance, I decided that today was the day to tell you all about one of my favourite, most-loved (great link, see?) experiences of recent weeks: my visit to Foofed. ‘Foof?’ you ask, ‘Isn’t that another word for a vagi-‘ – yes, yes it is, dear readers. But Foofed is also a gorgeous new blow dry bar / ultimate pre-night out destination in Sutton Coldfield. I was recently invited along to try out a treatment, and as I had an event to go to, I decided that a curly blow dry was definitely something I needed in my life.  View Full Post

10 Unreal Things You Can Buy In Primark Right Now

If you’re anything like me and like to go into a Primark with a solid idea of what you’re looking for, then  you’re in for a treat. I’ve scoured the New Arrivals  section of the store’s website and whittled down 10 of what I think to be the very best things that have apparently recently landed in store. Whether or not you’ll be able to find these beauties in your local Primark is of course just one of the risks you have to take when shopping in Primark (along with the risk of getting your foot ran over by a pram/getting trapped inside a dress in the changing room etc) – but if you can find any of them, then it’s going to be so worth it. Without further ado, here are the 10 things you can currently buy that I think are UNBELIEVABLY good: View Full Post

A Weekend in the Toyota C-HR

 

chr 2It probably won’t come as any great surprise to you that I don’t know much about cars. In fact, when it came to shopping for my first car, I nearly gave my dad a nervous breakdown as I insisted on ignoring all of his suggestions about mileage, running costs and road tax and always ended up saying “Yeah, but I don’t like the colour”. However, when I was contacted by the Vantage Motor Group in Solihull about whether I fancied test driving the brand new Toyota C-HR for a weekend, it was a definite yes. I might not know my horsepower from my headlights, but I do know I like the chance of being one of the first in the UK to take a brand new model for a spin.

The £3 Nude Lipliners You Need in Your Life | NYX Lip Pencils

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

One thing you might know about me if you’ve ever spent, say, three minutes in my company is my slight obsession with nude lips. A red can sometimes be okay for a night out, and I’ve been known to rock a purple if I’m feeling particularly vampy in the winter, but 99.9% of the time I’ll have some variety of nude lip going on. As such, nude lipliners pay a really important part in my life, so when I discovered these cheerfully cheap and FANTASTIC lip liners from NYX, I was understandably excited.  View Full Post

Fishmore Spa Shell @ Fishmore Hall | Review

Fishmore Spa Shell ReviewIf you read my Cedarwood Spa review a couple of months ago, you’ll know that after years of never experiencing them, I’m totally into spa days now (I’ve also finally started drinking wine, which is nothing to do with this review but wheeee, I’m finally growing up guys). So when I was invited along to join some other bloggers at the Fishmore Spa Shell last weekend, I obviously said yes. After all, who says no to spending time in a luxurious spa and then stuffing their face with afternoon tea? Nobody I want to be mates with, that’s fo sho.

Budapest in January | Winter Travel Guide

Budapest in Winter | Things to Do

Late last year, I decided to book my boyfriend a weekend away for Christmas (good way to get out of having to wrap a present FYI). I wanted somewhere cheap, cheerful and where there was a chance of a bit of winter snow. After a mooch online and a friends’ recommendations, I ended up booking a weekend in Budapest in January. I wasn’t 100% sure what to expect – or even where it was to be honest – but I am here to report that I had a great time. So, if you’re thinking about heading to Budapest during the winter, DO IT. And maybe this post will help… View Full Post
