My Sunday Best

Sundays are the days for having fun, doing something cute with the people you love and chilling out to the max. This weekend we had a DIY and jobs day on Saturday after a crazy weekend of entertaining the weekend before and then Sunday was all about relaxing and taking time for ourselves.

Whilst DIYing and general life changes happening everything can get a bit crazy so it was time for a fun day to ourselves. We headed out for some house shopping at H&M home, some autumnal warming lunch at Pieminister and a cinema trip to watch Winnie The Pooh (seriously cute, go and see it!). If we have plans like this for a Sunday then I’ll get a proper ‘outfit’ together and hopefully get an outfit snap or two! Saturdays are spent food shopping and cleaning so usually not a sassy outfit and usually hair up in a pineapple so here’s my casual but with a funky red lip outfit to head out in.

How to style a lob; the easy wave

Curls, waves and beachiness look so great on shorter hair. Long gone are the days when short hair meant that you couldn’t style it any other way than straight. Celebs like Jennifer Lawrence, Jessica Alba and even Chezza back in the day have all rocked the long curly lob and it’s still super cute in 2017. I love this look and at the moment, I’m not a fan of my hair straight because I’m growing my fringe out and it just stands out too much. I’ve been trying a new tool to help me get this look and I’ve got a little review for you.

Why I Want To Move To Leeds

Ok, ok, maybe a bit click bait-y but it’s totally true. Leeds is the only city I’ve been to on a city break that I could see myself living in. We’ve been to Amsterdam, Dublin, Barcelona (up there!), Manchester, London and loads more in the few years that we’ve been together and Leeds was definitely my favourite city break.

Around The World Review Nottingham

I’m going to kick this off by saying whoever invented halloumi is seriously special. I mean, those Greeks know how to do cheese. And that’s exactly what we started our dinner at Around The World with. Around The World is part of the new Bierkeller complex that’s hit up Friar Lane in Notts city centre. (It’s in the old Walkabout for anyone who’s bad with street names!) Around The World is a bar with Bierkeller German Stein and Hotdog bar below and a Shooters sports bar above it. The complex has literally everything for a fun, cheap night out with surprisingly good food.

Review: The Titanic Hotel Liverpool

When a hotel room is at least 3x the size of your flat you know you’re about to have a great night, right? The Titanic Hotel Liverpool suites are absolutely ridiculously huge and beautiful and we had an awesome time. We paid for a standard room which looked incredible in itself but we managed to wangle an upgrade when we said it was our anniversary. I mean, if you don’t ask, you don’t get and we just thought we’d try it!

Where To Stay In Cheltenham: Cheltenham Park Hotel

We like to get out and about in the UK, try new towns and cities and always find a new coffee shop to delve into. This weekend we stayed at the Cheltenham Park Hotel which is a huge hotel in the beautiful Cotswolds and I thought I’d tell you all about it.

The Location & Facilities

Cheltenham Park is actually located in Charlton Kings, about 2 miles drive from the centre of Cheltenham in a quiet area and only about 10 minutes from Cheltenham Racecourse. It’s a really big hotel, one of the biggest I’ve stayed in but the rooms are all great sizes. There is a gym, spa, beauty and health club facilities with a pool, sauna, jacuzzi and steam room. We spent some time in the well-equipped gym and the pool on Saturday afternoon which was lovely. I decided to run a 5km in addition to my Marathon In A Month that I’m doing for the British Heart Foundation and I loved running on an actual treadmill instead of the road for once!

One Heck Of A Blot!

I love the names of all the Soap & Glory products, they’re always so imaginative and funny – they always draw me in! Recently, when Boots were running on of their 3 for 2 offers I picked up some S&G makeup products to try.

My usual foundation was running low so I needed a replacement. I usually like to try high-end bases and was going to get either the Charlotte Tilbury Magic or Dior’s Forever foundations but I wasn’t 100% sure which one to go for. I didn’t want to drop £30 on a foundation I wasn’t sure about so decided to try the One Heck of A Blot All-Day Foundation from Soap & Glory. So far, I’m quite impressed, it has good staying power and turns into powder from a liquid, which is really cool. I don’t think the shade range is very good, though, there’s only four and I chose Happy Medium and it’s a bit too orange but the lighter shade was definitely too light. When used with the One Heck of A Blot Instant Perfecting Power Primer they provide a long lasting base but the foundation definitely needs building up, the coverage isn’t at all what I was expecting. It’s really light so I needed at least two thin applications and concealer to achieve the coverage I wanted.
