Recipe: Tarka Beans

It is a trait in my household that we never have beans straight from a can and once you try this recipe, you will see why.
You will need coriander, a red onion, a can of beans, any brand of olive oil, paprika, mixed herbs and some garlic butter. This isn't strictly vegan but I don't react to the garlic butter so I use it but you can use any butter you want.

Selfridges Beauty Blogger Event

I was invited along to a Selfridges Beauty Blogger Event by the lovely Beauty Personal Shopper, Rose, and could not wait to see what was in store. As you can see from the pic above, I even put some event into my outfit (no trainers or jeans, shocking!). If you follow me on Instagram, you will have seen this picture already and if you are not, then why not?! I kid but have a peruse anyway, more links on the right.

Urban Decay vs Illamasqua - Makeover Battle!

It was my cousin's wedding several weeks ago and I decided to go for a makeover for two of the big occasions. Then I had to decide which brand and on which day; so I was very lucky when I got an invite to try out a makeover at the Illamasqua concession and then received a voucher to get a makeover at Urban Decay. To say I was delighted, was putting it mildly! 

So I decided on Illamasqua for the first ceremony and Urban Decay for the actual wedding day.

Friends - 20 years anniversary

I love Friends, they helped me through university, when I was homesick or lonely and I still watch them now, I don't think I will ever get bored. I still remember watching the first episode 20 years ago, yes I am old, at my aunts house and just thinking, this is amazing. I thought they had been episodes before because it was just so well formed. I cannot believe it has been 20 years TODAY since the first episode and I thought I would do a post to celebrate. Particularly showcasing my favourite episode of the whole show.

My Food Place of the Week: Shawarma City

After a lot of rumours about Shawarma City, you know I had to go try it out. It is a prime location for people seeking a cheap but tasty lunch, this location being within Martineau Place.

My Food Place of the Week: Wagamama

Whilst at the Bullring Bloggers Event, I received a card for a complimentary Wagamama meal. Of course I had to redeem it and break my Wagamama virginity, but let's just say, I wasn't overly impressed.

Elizabeth Arden Event

Another day, another amazing beauty event. This time it was the turn of Elizabeth Arden.

Raw Food Event at The Warehouse Cafe

On the 18th August, I attended a 3 Course Raw Food Event at my favourite restaurant, The Warehouse Cafe. The tickets were £25 per person and the event included a drink. It was hosted by J's Organic (Jay Halford) and Raw Happy (Tracy Sadler).


Crystal Beauty Lounge

I was lucky enough to be invited to Crystal Beauty Lounge a month or so ago, due to me and Crystal having a mutual friend and this friend suggesting me for a review.
I was finally able to visit the salon about a week or so ago and have a facial, and what a facial it was.

My Food Place of the Week: Pepe's

Over the past couple of weeks, I have developed a love for a local gem and that is Pepe's. It is Nando's like but it is halal and after tasting it, I know it is even better than Nando's by a mile!
