Due to J’s chronic fatigue, we don’t often indulge in date nights any more, but when Señor Buddha* got in touch and asked if we wanted to sample their menu, we dressed up and headed over; J wore a smart shirt and did his hair and I wore a dress!
When I went to the US in 2011, Pinkberry* was everywhere. So it was disappointing that the UK didn’t have any. Until now. They now have a UK flagship store in Islington, London and I went up to check them out on their opening day.
*side story* Before I even got there, I had a bit of a catastrophe. I was all for wearing my jeans until I stepped outside two hours before heading to the train station to find that it was boiling hot outside. I own the total of two pairs of shorts; one are massive and look hideous and the other are a lil bit too tight (they’re a size 8 and it turns out I am not.) So I hot-footed to Next, tried on ALL the shorts and picked up a pair I really liked. And two tops. I really like them so an OOTD might appear soon. When it’s stopped raining. Thanks England, you da best! Anyway…
I love cake; Victoria sponge, chocolate cake, lemon drizzle, you name it, I’ll be up for eating it! So when Bakerdays* got in touch and asked if I wanted to review their latest idea; the letterbox cake, I couldn’t really say no, could I?
Word seems to have got out that Bear is a little pro cat blogger. Would that make him a #cblogger? Anyway, after his foray into the world of food sampling, he’s now testing out the latest technology from Surefeed; a motion sensor cat food bowl! It’s totally gone to his head and he’s demanding his own blog! I don’t think so buddy!
A couple of months ago I went to my first Brighton blog meet and in my goody bag were two samples of Mintycoco; the coconut oil-pulling formula with peppermint which is for “leaving your mouth feeling fresh, your teeth looking whiter and your gums healthy.” I decided to give it a go….
I’ve never subscribed to a monthly box before, mostly because I’ve seen a lot of mixed reviews, especially around beauty boxes, where a lot of people seem increasingly unhappy with the products they’re getting. I don’t want to pay that amount of money every month for products I might not like and I can’t even give them to J, because he’s not going to wear them. As far as I know. He does rock eyeliner like a pro though 😉
But then word came of a new kind of subscription box. And I was sent one to try out 😀
I was suffering with migraines/headaches/dizziness last week and was feeling pretty sorry for myself; that is until a parcel arrived for me from Tillyanna* <3
As you know, I recently went into town and picked up some bits and bobs. Unfortunately two items quickly got the can. I hate not giving things a proper try, but for me these products really didn’t work at all from the outset.
Back in November 2013, I was about to go on my first official date with J, so I popped to my local hairdresser to get my hair done! Talk about trying to make a good impression! She said she’d just bought a Curl Secret which was relatively new. I was really intrigued so I said I’d be her guinea pig and let her try it out on my hair!!
