Shills Charcoal Peel Off Mask- Review

2 posts about charcoal products within 10 days? Hehe, I’m not even sorry. Charcoal skincare is in vogue and the most popular of all? Peel off skin masks, they are reported to be fantastic…and agonising. I’m going to be reviewing SHILLS Original Peel Off Black Mask With Activated Charcoal and reporting back if it actually works, and…

GLAMGLOW Supermud £5 dupe?

My all time favourite face mask is the GLAMGLOW Supermud Clearing Treatment Mask, obviously, because it’s fantastic, you can really feel it working on your skin and after using it just once my skin is always noticeably softer, smoother and much less oily. There is one teeny weeny issue, however. GLAMGLOW is crazy expensive. Even…

The Worlds Best Dive Site- The SS. Yongala

The SS. Yongala sank off Cape Bowling Green, Queensland, Australia on 23 March 1911. En route from Melbourne to Cairns, she steamed directly into the path of a cyclone and sank south of Townsville. There were no survivors and nobody knew what happened for years until the wreck was discovered after WW2. Now the wreck…

Review- Shuang Shuang

This restaurant is fantastic! Ok, so I realise this is a little strange but I had a really great experience here!   If you’re feeling a little adventurous, you can sit downstairs and cook your own ramen with ingredients going round on a little conveyor belt, which looks really cool. If you’re a little more conservative/…

Review- Yumchaa

Yumchaa (slogan ‘free your tea’) is perhaps the most interesting non-alcoholic drinking spot I’ve ever been to. They have somehow created some crazy tea flavorous some of which are  ‘Chilli Chilli Bang Bang’, ‘Enchanted Forrest’ and ‘Marzipan Superfan’. There is a selection of pastries, cakes and packets of tea that you can buy and brew…

The Museum of Happiness

What do you think could be hidden in the back of this small unassuming café in Shoreditch? Probably the most fun you can have for £5:00 -the Museum of Happiness.  I’m not exactly sure what qualifies the Museum of Happiness as a museum, but it is definitely the place to fill your vaults of happiness….

Review- 26 Grains

26 Grains is a teeny tiny restaurant/café tucked away in Covent Garden’s famous Neal’s Yard. It is the brainchild of Alex Hely-Hutchinson a pioneer of ‘posh porridge’ in which 26 types of grains are utilised to make delicious and wholesome recipes drawing inspiration from the Scandinavian diet and their Hygge (cosy) culture. there are a few places…

UNIQLO Tate Late- February

UNIQLO Tate Late’s are special days when the Tate Modern is opened to the public after hours for a series exhibitions most of which are free to attend. This was my first time visiting this newly opened wing of the Tate and my first Tate Late evening and I absolutely loved it and wanted to share…

Review- Emmeline Café

Emmeline is a very small café(ish) tucked away in Stokes Croft. I say café(ish) because it actually also sells plants, not just like a florist, but like its own strange little jungle. This small unassuming shop is fit-to-bust with miniature cacti and succulents. If you can put it in a terrarium, they got it. As…

Microfinance- The charity of the future?

I’ve recently got involved with a small Bristol based charity Deki, it deals with Microfinance and the idea it is based upon is fascinating. Microfinance is the process of lending a little money to someone who is considered ‘unbankable’ (not viable to traditional bank loans). The idea is that if you inject money into an…

The Best of British- Anti Trump Signs

I don’t really want to bring politics into my blog but I just can’t turn the other cheek when it comes to the bigoted orange psychopath that is President Donald Trump. In my opinion, his election is a complete disaster for the entire world and I, like millions of others, am horrified by his attitudes and…
