Munching on the New Nando’s Summer 2016 Menu

  Back in May when exams were ruling my life (oh, I know, I’ve wittered on about them enough!), I was lucky enough to be invited along to Nando’s to sample their new summer menu. Being a gal that loves a cheeky Nando’s – so much so that it made an appearence in a list of 50 things that make me happy – I couldn’t wait to get stuck in, and now I finally have time to tell you all about the glorious grub, and no doubt make myself drool along the way. I was joined by my fellow Hull…

Getting Party Ready with Cracker Drinks Co.

Let’s go back in time to about three months ago. Exams were approaching, assignments were due, and my dissertation deadline was looming, meaning free time was at an absolute zero. During this time, however, Cracker Drinks Co. sent over the cutest package for me which I saved for one of my rare nights off, and now, with freedom upon me, I can finally tell you all about it. I got warm fuzzy feelings in my tummy as soon as I unwrapped the package. It came in a super cute multicoloured spotted box which I forgot to take a photo of…

Ashton, where are you?

You may or may not have noticed that recently, I’ve not been out and about in the online world very much. (Shoutout to the cuties that noticed and have messaged me! If you haven’t noticed, how very rude of you… jk. 😉) My Twitter feed has been neglected, my Instagram filters have been gathering dust and cobwebs, and my blog hasn’t has much of an update in a while. Which seems very odd considering I’ve just had a few days off from work one after the other. I did plan to spend that time blogging, but it turns out, I…

True North De-Stressed Serum 4.1 Review

When it comes to skincare, I have to confess: I’m not very dedicated. I’m a bit of a bog standard cleanse and moisturise kind of girl. I tone occasionally and will do the odd exfoliating mask, but anything else is usually new territory to me. Okay, sometimes I don’t even cleanse and moisturise. I go for the baby wipe. There. I said it. 😳 Recently, however, I’ve been trying a couple of new products, and I’m totally digging them. (And I’m trying to up my skincare game, I swear!) You may have seen recently that I reviewed a SKN-RG product…

SKN-RG Ultra Marine Collagen Creme Review

  Before being sent this product to review, I had never come across SKN-RG before, so of course, I did my research, and was pretty pleased with the info I found. SKN-RG is an organic skincare brand which, after years of research and discovery, was founded by Robert and Deborah Scott. Using natural ingredients combined with scientific advances, they have created a wide range of organic products for numerous skin concerns. I was sent the Ultra Marine Collagen Creme* and immediately fell in love with the packaging. The creme comes in a sleek red box and is presented in a…

Guest Post: Brianna and Angelina’s Favourite Not-So-Popular books

This post is a guest post by Brianna from Fable’s Library. 🙂 Firstly, we want to thank Beauty, Books & Babble for letting us guest post 😀 THANK YOU SO MUCH THIS IS SUPER SUPER EXCITING! Angelina and I have a tendency to read not so popular books, well Angelina has this problem a lot more than I do, but she’s not alone, ok?! There are a lot of hyped books that do so well, then there are the other books that come out at the same time and survive on only 500 reviews and ratings! Today’s post is all…

"Okay, wait, so bloggers actually PAY for followers?!"

  It’s no secret that followers can be bought on the Internet. I often have people favourite my tweets or Instagram photos with the display name “BuY Mør3 f0LL0ŵëRżŽ“… Umm, nah, you’re alright, pal. But is it true? Do bloggers actually pay for their followers? The answer is yes. Yes they do. They pay in hard work, effort and dedication. They pay in late nights finalising posts and long days waiting for the sun so they can get the perfect photo. They pay in trying to wrap their head around HTML, CSS, no-follow links and SEO. (Gah, I’m still clueless…

Down the rabbit hole to a Mad Hatter Afternoon Tea with Hallmark Hotel

If you like Disney, food and cute things (and who doesn’t?!), then you will love today’s post. A couple of weeks ago, some of my fave Hull bloggers and I were invited to try an Alice in Wonderland afternoon tea at the Hallmark Hotel in Hull, and being an afternoon tea virgin (shocking, I know), I couldn’t wait to get stuck in and try everything out. The lovely staff guided us outside as soon as we got there, and we couldn’t have chosen a better day to meet up for our afternoon tea. The sun was beaming down on us…

Dreaming of a life in Tenerife #BlogYourWayToSpain

  I was a bit of a late starter when it came to sunshine holidays. My parents never had passports, and so caravan parks were where we spents our weeks off from school (and they were awesome by the way!). Finally, at the age of 18, I had my first holiday abroad. And my oh my, that was the spark that started my slight obsession with sunny holidays. Being in a different country was so new and exciting that I vowed to visit a new destination every time we booked a holiday. That plan worked for a while, until something…
