Liz Earlie Cleanse and Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser- Review

This face cleanser is not like anything I have ever really experienced, I am a clinique girl through and through normally with their 3 step routine but after receiving this I thought, maybe its time for a change.

Positive Body Image

I don't normally do a personal post, but as International Women's Day, I felt like I wanted to talk about something that is important to me, positive body image.

Through out my life I have always had a positive image with regards to my body. I don't know whether this is due to my amazing family who have always made me feel loved, and thus that I should love me too, or because I have always been so athletic that my body was always up for the task I demanded from it and so it made me love it more, that I do not know. 

What I do know though is that so many people every day stare in the mirror and find at least 10 things they don't like. I know this because for some reason recently I have been doing the same! I don't like how my shoulders are now so big and muscly it makes me look like a man, I don't like the colour of my hair, I don't like how I feel that I could probably loose a few pounds, or that my face appears rounder that it did last year. Trust me, I could probably go on for a while and all I keep wondering is why has it happened now?

HD Eye and Brow Palette Review

I've been planning on writing a beauty review for what feels like a lifetime and this being my first review it felt like it had to be good and I'm excited to share it with you so you can tell me what you think about it as well as any tips you may have.

I discovered HD brows completely accidentally when, in my glamour latest in beauty box last year, I recieved a small HD palette and boy did it change my view on brows! I had never really been into the whole big dark eyebrow thing, mainly because I have quite large eyebrows naturally but that palette changed me. When I sadly dropped the palette when I was in Africa last year it gave me a great excuse to try out the new version.

Last Minute Valentines Presents for Him and for Her.

I always find that trying to plan Valentines gifts is a little bit of a nightmare so I thought I would come up with a few last minute ideas that you will be able to get on time thanks to ASOS next day and Amazon Prime, and if you can be bothered to head out into the shops.

For her


The Grill on Newgate Street, Chester Review

I am a MASSIVE fan of all the Blackhouse Grills, but had yet to try out the one in Chester and so, took the opportunity whilst living there to head for a meal with my best friend Charlotte.

In January Blackhouse were offering 50% of all food and so it was the best of two worlds when I got to have amazing food for less.

On entry the Bar area is perfect for grabbing a cocktail (or two) and waiting for your table.

I would highly recommend the passion fruit sling, its so fruity and as it's in a tall glass it will last you much longer than your typical cosmo.

We were seated in the middle of the restaurant which is suprisingly big and we could see into the huge open kitchen which I always think is a lovely quality when you can whitness your food being prepared.

Although being nearly a regular at the one in Leeds and Alderley Edge I decided that I would try something new to eat and I'm so glad I did.

For a starter I had the duck spring rolls (since I tried them 2 years ago, no other starter even compares and I am slowly converting everyone I go with to them as well). Everything about them is tasty, especially the dipping sauce and I have often been tempted to just order 3 plates and have them as a main!

For main instead of just having a steak like normal I decided to try the crispy beef fajitas and they were amazing. The beef has a slight spicy kick and the amount of extras you get to create your perfect tortilla is crazy.

If you're a fan of fajitas then these are simply a must!

Charlotte had a burger which also looked mouthwateringly good. Dont you just love the little chip frier the chips come in?

 Then the night sadly had to draw to an end. I was too full for pudding this time, but it does give me an even bigger excuse to return and try out even more of there delicious menu

 Somehow Blackhouse got everything right with the atmosphere from a live pianist and the buzz of conversation around you to amazing food and fantastic cocktails. If you're looking for a great grill to go with friends then you really dont need to look much further.
