SimplyCook Review!

Image
I love cooking but I also love keeping and making my life simple. Especially when I'm cooking for one or quite simply, in my university flat where the kitchen is pretty small.

I tried Simply Cook and while it wasn't quite what I expected I was quietly pleased with how my meals turned out.

I really liked how I could complete my personal profile online with dietary preferences and then select specific meals that I liked. Delivery was fast and ordering was simple. The box came with the perfect quantities of seasonings and the size fit through post box meaning I didn't need to be waiting for it and it was delivered while I was out.

I defintely think it takes me out of my comfort zone with little extra and unique flavours to escape my comfort zone and actually explore more variety.

Not only that but the recipe cards that came with it are simple for follow. Plus, they are perfect to keep and reuse as they come in a very stylish format to keep forever.

Capital's Summertime Ball 2017!

Image
I was so excited when I got tickets to Capital's Summertime Ball this year! In 2015, I headed to Capital's Jingle Bell Ball in December and absolutely loved it so I was really excited.

Going into it, I was surprised and overwhelmed at how long the concert was for, almost 10 hours! The line up isn't necessarily my personal pick but there are about half of the artists I know well and a few of the others have a song or two which I knew.

Bruno Mars: Honestly I was quite disappointed. Straight up, he was pretty boring, repeated the same dance moves and never really moved from the main stage to make his performance more interactive with the audience. It wasn't helped that the fireworks that started the show, left a haze of smoke for almost 15 minutes and I was struggling to breathe.

Niall Horan: Oh I loved it. His performance was utterly flawless and just stunning. His 2 short songs were over too quickly and after waiting almost 5 …

Today I am sharing a written format of how to apply LipSense.
LipSense is an incredible product but it isn't like other lipsticks so it's important to follow these steps to guarantee perfect, long-lasting lipstick every time!

Shake the lip colour well, for at least 30 seconds to evenly spread the pigment throughout. Apply to clean, dry lips. Make sure to dry the waterline. For a more defined look, line lips with LinerSense (available separately) first. I personally don't think it's needed as the lip colour doesn't bleed. With lips parted, place LipSense applicator on lip beginning at the outside corner and spread in a fluid, sweeping motion to the opposite corner of …

Madame Tussauds (Review)

Image
Recently, I headed to Madame Tussaud's with my mother. I thought I would put together a quick review for anyone thinking of going themselves. Please note, this is for the London location. 
Interestingly, the most popular wax figures were the royal family and it's actually the only one who you can't take your own pictures with. Mum happened to like the photograph so much that she wanted to buy it. Admittedly, I also loved the picture and it looks totally real to me! Everything was very elegantly dealt with and the background was stunning! I think the flags only added to the patriotism.  I knew going into it that I would be disappointed that I couldn't have pictures with people. My mum is a terrible photographer and usually they're either blurry, a finger is over the lens or the photo is completely off centred with no one actually in it. Anyway, as expected, there were only 2 she even remotely took decent pictures of me, despite me giving her repeated 'lessons&#…
