So Far In 2018: 5 Things That Have Happened In My Life

I cannot believe it is June already. This year is totally flying over but then again, don’t we say that every year? Since we are halfway through the year I thought I’d do a little catch-up sort of post to document what I’ve been up to in the past six months for those of you who care. Oh and of course for myself as a sort of little diary because I’m kinda sentimental like that. Despite this post being pretty cheery, my 2018 hasn’t been all bells and whistles. There have been some tough and testing times. However, the main…

The Best Lunch In Newcastle? ShiJo Cafe

Recently when on out and about in Newcastle with my boyfriend we took a stroll hand in hand down Northumberland Street. We passed Haymarket Metro station and before we knew it a delicious waft of flavourful scent entered our noses. We were extremely intrigued by this tasty smelling scent. Shortly after we discovered the smell was coming from a place called Shijo Cafe. Shijo Cafe is a Japanese style place that serves the likes of ramen, yakisoba, Japanese style curry, gyozas and soups amongst other dishes. The menu isn’t massive but it is very respectable considering the place is quite small.…

6 Really Catchy Songs I’ve Been Listening To In May

7Lions – Born 2 Run The first of the really catchy songs I’ve been listening to in May is 7Lions – Born 2 Run. This is a kind of rock, pop and hip-hop mix. It’s just a great song that you can bop along to. To me, it has sports theme written all over it so I was not surprised to hear that in the past it has been featured by the NFL, NASCAR, MLB, ESPN and WWE. Oh, and it’s also worth pointing out that this song isn’t new, it’s been out since 2012. However, that doesn’t take away the fact that…

4 Awesome Products I Picked Up From Cult Beauty

The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer The first of the four awesome products I picked up from Cult Beauty was one of my all-time favourites. I am of course talking about The Ordinary High-Adherence Silicone Primer. Unsurprisingly this is not the first time the silicone primer from The Ordinary has been mentioned on my blog. I did a whole stand-alone blog post on the product a little while back where I confessed my love for it. The product is just a really great affordable smoothing primer. For £3.90 I happily ordered myself another two tubes because this stuff works super well…

5 Of The Best BTS Songs

With the BTS Love Yourself: Tear album out tomorrow I thought it was a good time to get myself in the mood for the new release. What better way to do so than to share a little post on some of my favourite songs from the Korean boyband? I’m sure if you’ve read my blog before then you’ll be well aware of BTS. I recently reviewed the BTS – Love Yourself: Her album and mentioned their songs not only back in my January favourites post but also in my favourite songs of March and my favourite songs of April post. If not…

7 New Products From Revolution Beauty I Picked Up Recently

For years now I’ve been a big fan of Makeup Revolution. Just recently I chatted about the Makeup Revolution Full Coverage Concealer here on my blog. However, recently the brand rebranded under the name Revolution Beauty. They still have the same great products, they’ve just got a new look and name. Oh and a whole boatload of new products. Recently I took a peak on their site and picked up a few bits and bobs to try out. So naturally, I thought I’d write a blog post on said products. Retro Luxe Vault The first of the Revolution Beauty products that I picked up…
