REVIEW: SOAP AND GLORY MAKE YOURSELF YOUTHFUL


I've been using this Soap and Glory Serum on and off for a few months now. I am a big fan of Soap and Glory. First of all i'm a massive fan of their packaging, its so fun and cute and one of the big reasons why I buy their products. I also think they have some really good quality products that really work.

This product is a youth serum that claims to reduce lines and energise the skin.

I love the feel of this product on my skin, its cool and a light formula that sinks into the skin easily. You instantly feel the product work into the skin making it feel cool and energized!

I like to use this as a primer before I apply my make up as I feel it does fill in the lines and create an even base to work onto.

You only need a little bit of product as a little goes a long way. It's a really light formula and it isn't sticky or oily.

I'm a really bit fan of Make Yourself Youthful, I do think £16 is a fair price compared to other serums that are out there.

FOOD REVIEW: Pizza Express Express Lunch








I was kindly given the opportunity to sample the brand new Lunch menu from Pizza Express. Avalible to eat in or take away theres a very impressive selection to choose from. Theres a range of soups, pizza's and salads avaliable. Theres a range of smaller sides which start at £1.95.

I ordered the Pollo ad Astra pizza and Clint ordered the American Hot pizza, we also ordered some Polenta Chips and some Dough Balls 'Pizza Express'.

The pizza was a very decent size for £5.95. I actually Mmmm'd outloud after my first bite. It was really good! I liked the cheese very much and i'm not normally one for tomato base on my pizza ( I normally have BBQ) but I really enjoyed the tomato base. The Pollo ad Astra pizza came with Chicken, sweet Pepperdew peppers, red onion, mozzarella, tomato, cajun spices and garlic oil. The cajun spices really made the pizza for me, it tasted so good! The pizza wasn't too spicy which I was very happy about. I ate every single piece of this pizza and I would order this again and again, it was really nice.

We also ordered Polenta chips and Dough Balls as a side, the portions are smaller in comparison to their main menu but the portions were a decent size and I really enjoyed them. I love Pizza Express Dough Balls Mmm.

We finished with a slice of Chocoloate Fudge Cake which is made in store at Pizza Express it was nice and moist and came with the most amazing ice cream.

I'd really recommend this menu as theres just so much choice and it's a great value for money. The portions are very good and i'd much rather spend a fiver on a pizza for my lunch. I really enjoyed my visit, this was my first visit to the Solihull Pizza Express and I'll be returning to try out more things from there lunch menu.  I love the sound of Padana so I'll be trying that next!

Check out the menu here !

My Gym Essentials


I recently joined the gym again as I want to lose a bit of weight and get toned for my holiday. Here's a post about my essentials for the gym. 

Trainers - I got these really cute Nike trainers, they have a mesh material on the side which is great at stopping my feet getting hot. These are training shoes so they are good for the gym. 

Gym Clothes -  I'm not really bothered about what I wear to the gym. I have my Puma bottoms, there like leggings so they are really comfy and are easy to run in. I also bring my swimming costume to the gym as I like to go for a swim after exercising. 

Flannel - I bring my flannel along incase I get abit sweaty, I use it to dab my face and wipe my hands on. 

Towel - Like I said above I like to go for a swim after my work out so I bring my towel along with me.

Water Bottle - I bought this really cute water bottle to bring to the gym. I normally buy bottled water to take with me but decided it would be cheaper to refil the bottle myself. This bottle is from Primark.

Energy Drinks - Sometimes I like to bring an energy drink along instead of water like these ones from Multipower.com because they are full of things like caffine to sustain your endurance. There's loads to choose from and they can allow you to work out for longer and harder.

Iphone and earphones - Theres always music on at the gym but I like to listen to my own music, I also like to check my twitter and facebook whilst i'm on the treadmill or the bike.

REVIEW: SAMMYDRESS BAG


 bag : Sammy Dress - £9.21*

I was offered the chance to review an item from Sammy Dress so I picked this bag as I've been looking for a decent size new bag that I can use as a day to day bag. My old one was getting abit worn so I picked this black bowling bag which has gold detailing and gold studs. It's a really good quality material which I was rather suprised about because it costs under a tenner!

The size is great and I can fit all my day to day essentials in it. Theres a longer strap for those of you who prefer a long strap.

Sammy Dress is such a good value for money and there's so much to choose from, the site is updated all the time with the latest fashions. I'm thinking about placing an order so I can see what the quality of their clothing is like. Theres some absolutly amazing bikinis in stock now for the summer.

THE GADGET SHOW LIVE


So today I went along to The Gadget Show Live in Birmingham, I was kindly given tickets to attend courtesy of Currys. I took my mom along with me. We headed into the Super Theatre ready for the show. The presenters from the Gadget Show were there, along side dancers, fire dancers and more. There was loads of competitions and audience participation. There was a huge prize up for grabs including a Xbox one, headphones, a Microsoft Tablet and more gadgets. It was a really good show with loads going on and it was really entertaining. We got on the big screen by sending in a photo of us in the Super Theatre which was really fun.





















After the show we headed into the exhibition halls to have a look at the stalls and different brands. There was loads going on you could play brand new games, you could play on the latest gaming consoles, there was automatic bins and even tin openers. I wanted to have a look at the Microsoft stand to see there new laptops and tablets, I went over to the Sony stand where they had a big watertank with a women in and she had a Sony Mobile in the water and was taking photos of people outside the tank, it was a really great way to show off the phones waterproof features. There was loads of new products phones, tablets and headphones over at the Sony stand.

There was much more going on throughout the day, I had a great day and would like to thank Currys for my ticket and for giving me the opportunity to go.
