Beauty Products I Regret Buying

Beauty Products I Regret Buying

Recently, I’ve been reading a lot of great beauty blogs in the hopes of getting back into writing about make-up. My favourite posts are always about regretted purchases since I find those the most useful when I’m considering whether or not to buy a product, and there’s nowt better than reading a good rant! So I thought I’d have a go at writing my own but be warned; this is a picture-heavy post and it may load slowly on mobile devices. It’s worth the wait, I promise!

Restaurant Review: Handmade Burger Co., Hull

Handmade Burger Co., St. Stephen's Shopping Centre, Hull

I love a good veggie burger. Unfortunately, the majority of veggie burgers I get served when eating out are not exactly what I’d call good. A bland vegetable patty, usually overloaded with mushy sweetcorn, served on a limp bread bun with a meagre sprinkling of salad. It’s uninspired, dull, and so not what vegetarian food is all about!

Thankfully, the Handmade Burger Co. know what they’re doing when it comes to proper vegetarian burgers. They have seven different vegetarian burger options, four of which are vegan, and two of which I can reliably confirm are absolutely delicious.

The veggie burgers are normally priced between £6.95 and £7.65 in Hull, making them pretty reasonable value for money. However, the Handmade Burger Co. are currently offering 50% off vegan food until January 31st, in aid of Veganuary. That knocks the prices of the four vegan burgers down to less than £4 each. I felt obliged to indulge!

Lush Oxford Street Haul

I was lucky enough to visit London with my boyfriend a couple of weeks ago, and there was only one attraction on my mind during the whole two hour train journey from Manchester. The London Eye? Nope. Big Ben? Not even close.

The world’s biggest Lush store? Hell yes!

Lush Oxford Street is, quite simply put, the Holy Grail for cruelty-free beauty addicts. To wander around a shop and know that you can pick out absolutely anything you like and buy it straight away, without having to search online for a cruelty-free declaration or a vegetarian/vegan ingredients list, is one of the best feelings in the world. I get excited enough in normal sized Lush stores, but it’s fair to say that the Lush on Oxford Street, the biggest Lush shop in the entire world, made me lose my mind entirely. I was more than prepared to completely drain my bank account and buy every single one of the 200-odd products exclusive to Oxford Street, but I was actually pretty restrained with my purchases.

What did I end up buying? Read on to find out!

OOTD: Boutique of Molly Dahlia Dress

OOTD: Boutique of Molly Dahlia Dress

I have been trying to blog about this Boutique of Molly dress for an absolute age, I can’t even begin to tell you how frustrating photographing this dress has been! Every single photo out of the 100+ that had been taken by myself, my dad and my boyfriend have been unusable. From dodgy facial expressions to horrific blurs, I didn’t manage to get a single good photo of myself in this dress. FINALLY though, after my third attempt at a photo shoot, I have some pictures of this gorgeous dress that are actually worth posting. I have to say, it has been worth the effort.

Film Review: Inside Out

Being a massive fan of Pixar films, I absolutely had to go and see Inside Out during its opening weekend. Ever since learning about the concept behind Inside Out a couple of years ago I’ve been excited about seeing the end result, but did it live up to my (extremely high) expectations?
