When I was younger, I absolutely loved The Crystal Maze; especially the tasks where people had to solve cryptic clues to find the crystals 🙂 When escape rooms became popular, I vowed that I’d go and try some out, but I never got round to it 🙁
So when the lovely people at Handmade Mysteries got in touch and asked if I wanted to try out one of theirs, I jumped at the chance to give it a go!!
Holy smokes this post is up super late, isn’t it? I’ve been incredibly busy over the past couple of weeks with a lot of home admin bits to do, so I haven’t really had time to sit down and write or take photos 🙁
Sometimes life works out pretty great, doesn’t it? I met one of my oldest best friends, Charlie, on my first day at a new school (aged 14). We used to live really near each other and walked to school together most days.
When we were 16, she moved away, but we still kept in touch, writing letters to each other 🙂 She recently moved back to England, finding a place in London, which is the closest we’ve lived to each other for years!!
To be honest, I’ve never been the kind of person who tries to stay ahead of the trends, but when Boots* challenged me to try out a makeup look based on the newest trends for the summer, I couldn’t resist!!
If you’re not familiar with the term ASMR, it stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response. Supposedly, specific aural triggers (like whispering, quietly tapping on objects, brushing microphones with makeup brushes or slowly turning the pages of books) produce a pleasant tingling sensation on the back of the neck and the scalp.
The last time I wore leopard print I was about 12, absolutely obsessed with The Spice Girls (Scary Spice in particular), and I owned a pair of satin-esque leopard print leggings, which didn’t really fit properly. I used to wear them with my crap quality crushed velvet platform boots and yes, the combination was about as horrific as you can imagine and no, I don’t have any photos of them. Luckily for me!
I cannot believe we’re about to enter June!! The days and months seem to be going super fast now. I’m definitely looking forward to summer, but I’d very much like it to slow down now please!!
Ages ago, Alice and I decided that we really needed to meet up this year and, as Portsmouth wasn’t too far for either of us to head to, we decided to meet up there. Alice was then invited to try out The Cosy Club for lunch in Portsmouth and it seemed like the perfect opportunity to have a catch up!
A few months ago I posted a review about some products that Dermalogica very kindly sent me to test as one of their skinfluencers. One product that, unfortunately, I really didn’t get on with was the Skin Smoothing Cream (a moisturiser).
Last weekend, I headed to the Brighton Cookery School (on London Road) to hang out with Ben from Mob Kitchen and loads of other foodies to “cook” two incredibly simple vegan recipes!
