A week in food: London, May 2018

Love food, hate waiting for it… Well, it’s really been a while. I honestly couldn’t really tell you why I’ve had no motivation to write for the past couple of months, but every time I sat down with an idea, I just had no idea how to tell it. I’m quite an introvert and usually…

HDL REVIEWS: Cosmo, Southampton Westquay

If you’re a lifelong Soton resident like me, you’ll know that any changes on the horizons of the city are usually useless and underwhelming. In a place that is attracting and accommodating more and more people, changes are inevitable. Promises of an ice rink disappear like smoke, cries of ‘do we really need a new…

Review: Glossybox December 2015

This is the last of my current 3-month glossy box subscription, and to tell you the truth, I am truly in love with it. It’s a rose gold edit, a collaboration with beauty blogger Really Ree and it is giving me great feelings about the coming month, which will be full of parties, food and…

Review: Glossybox November 2015

So, I’ve had a Glossybox subscription for a month and a half now, and even though I didn’t get around to reviewing October’s box (my laptop has had a bit of a keyboard issue so typing out long posts was too much of a chore), I really enjoyed the products. What a great box to…

Happy Anniversary!

This is a slightly belated post, because I’m an imperfect person and I struggle with deadlines, but last Friday it was the five year anniversary of my relationship with Fahad. Those who know me will know that Fahad is, and has been, my complete best friend for the duration of those five years, and I…

Review: Bourgeois 1,2,3 Perfect foundation in light vanilla

As a long-term sufferer of blotchy red patches on my skin, particularly in weather extremes, I have been searching everywhere for a very long time for a solution to this that doesn’t have to involve plastering my face in thick layers of concealer, foundation and powder. I know that we should always use makeup with…

Review: Loreal Lumi Magique foundation in Rose Pearl

I am always looking for the best affordable foundation I can find. As a student, only a portion of my income gets spent on beauty products, and I tend to cheap out when it comes to things like nail polish, lip colour and brow pencils. But foundation is such an important factor to creating a…

Review: The Body Shop Vitamin E Hydrating Toner

I have been a fool for most of my adult life. Granted, this adulthood has been a recent burden (2 and a half years into being responsible for my actions and I’m starting to realise that it’s all a trap), but it is still a long enough time to recognise my supreme foolishness. In comes…

REVIEW: Island – Bel Esprit

The latest track from the Bel Esprit Lose My Mind EP is now here! After their initial success on Soundcloud with the EP’s title track, a follow up from this southern indie rock four-piece has been long-anticipated. Taking a less energetic approach, ‘Island’ explores the moodier side of the band’s songwriting, incorporating technical musical prowess…
