Review: Essence All About Nudes Eye Shadow Palette + FREE Giveaway

Flicking through the September issue of Cosmopolitan I find myself engrossed in an article from beauty journalist Lucy Partington. 

In it she explains that before she became a beauty journalist, she lived with the assumption that when it comes to beauty, you get what you pay for. She isn’t the only one and I’m sure a lot of us are guilty of thinking “the higher the price tag, the more the product must be desirable, more efficient or superior” #MakeUpSnob. 

One particular product that caught my eye in disbelief was the mention of an eye shadow palette from a brand of makeup I had never heard of before called Essence. Stocked and sold at Wilko stores. 

Review: The Anchor Aspley Guise

The Anchor is a pub and restaurant in the village of Aspley Guise on the outskirts of the borough of Milton Keynes.

How could I resist heading over to Aspley Guise to see exactly what’s been happening in this laid back village…?!

Review: Deliveroo

Rain day + lazy sofa cuddles with my toddler + insane pregnancy appetite = refusing to budge and ordering food in for dinner

…Hey! It is Friday.. give a girl a break. 

I’ve heard of Deliveroo for a while now. They offer food delivery to your door from big name restaurants in your local area who ordinarily are not in a position to offer home delivery.

Review: The Swan at Salford

Date night isn’t a regular occurrence but when you’re invited to a pretty village gastropub with a good reputation and native LOBSTER is on the specials menu, you grab your husband, get him in a shirt and get rolling down the road.
