Like I have said 1 million times, I am not a makeup person. I feel like I am quite a basic makeup user, I find products I love and I stick to them. I find a look I love and stick to it. Simple as that. I am not one who has lots of time nor patience for sitting around for hours painting my face into a masterpiece. I am pretty much the most basic biatch out there when it comes to my makeup! However so many of you message me and comment asking me what makeup I use and to do a routine! Instead of a video I thought I would put together this blog post!
I have used the same makeup brand and products for around 2 years now. THIS IS NOT A SPONSORED POST. I just love them. Honestly. A friend of a friend who is now a friend (LOL wrap your head around that) introduced me to the brand and products a while back and I can honestly say I will never change my makeup brand. The makeup is made from high quality swiss ingredients, it is vegan friendly and is good to the skin. I have always had issues with my skin whether it be spots or dryness, something has always got to be an issue on my face! I have found that good high quality products, a clean diet, lots of water and sleep have improved my skin to where it is now. (I thought by the time I reached 23 I would have the face of an angel but no still struggling like a 16 year old!). I don’t think you ever escape your skin issues but you sure can improve them.
Like I said I found this brand around 2 years ago and WILL NEVER GO BACK. Like most people I looked for trending makeup that cool people were using, or cheap makeup that wouldn’t break the bank. Truth is, you get what you pay for. Now this brand is not expensive by any means but it is not the cheap nasty stuff you find in local drug stores either, probably because it is not filled with cheap nasty ingredients!
WHAT I AM WEARING:
As stated this is not a sponsored post but I do have an affiliate link and I will tell you why. Like I said my friend actually introduced these products to me. She was an Arbonne consultant. What this means is she actually built her own online business with these products and also receives a cracking discount at the same time, save money and make money all in one. I joined her because saving money is my favourite hobby besides sleeping and eating! You can shop these products through my link but if you find you like them you can reach out to me and find out how to get yourself the discount too so every month your shop your newly found products, you can save money at the same time. Winner winner tofu dinner!
Other products used are the Glow kit by Anastasia Beverly Hills you can shop here

Hey everyone! Welcome back to my blog. I am writing a post up about our favourite places to eat vegan whilst we were over in Orlando and let me say there were quite a lot of really good places so I was pleasantly surprised. We did stick to supermarket finds throughout the day and tended to go out at night for restaurant meals and were constantly on the hunt for the best vegan desserts Orlando had to offer. I hope this helps some of you if you are traveling here and need to know the best options!
ALL VEGAN. ALL GOOD. I recommend the orange juice mimosas .. oops. We had different meals each time we went but our favourite was 100% the Samson burger. I swear it tasted like a Big Mac!
Everyone in instagram ranted and raved and forced us to go here. It was decent yes but not my favourite. They had a great tempeh taco and Marco enjoyed the soy dogs with a side of mac n cheese. We also had 4 too many desserts!
Again an all veggie establishment with delicious asian inspired food. This was one of my favourite places to eat. Not what we would consider a restaurant more of a canteen/cafe style place but delicious none the less. I highly recommend the pineapple and tofu burger..yum.
Not all vegan but the options we had were delish. A tofu and veggie wrap with blue chips and salsa with a side of peanut butter protein smoothie.
Not all vegan but omg all delicious. All pizzas could be made vegan and they had the option of vegan daiya cheese. We went for a fully loaded veggie pizza, tempeh and the cheese. Holy cow. How I managed to eat 99% of an America medium pizza I will never know. It was just that good.
We grabbed a snack here because we read online that the Auntie Anne’s pretzels could be made vegan. Ask for a dairy free pretzel and they make it with oil instead of butter (just glaze it) and they top it with the most amazing cinnamon sugar ever. Perfect full fat snack attack.
Hola chiccaaas (and chicos 😉 ) SO I have a question with multiple answers for you, I want to know what kind of videos you want me to bring to you. Of course I love vlogging What I eat in a day and my workouts – passion. However I also feel my channel lacks a lot of my personality as these videos do not allow much room for creative spin on el personality. Please take 3 seconds out of your amazing life to make your life even more amazing by selecting your preferred entertainment category below:
Hey guys! I am writing to you from Orlando, Florida right now, sadly it is my last day! The weather has been amazing, apart from a few cloudy evenings here and there which you will see from my photos below! I am working with Buchanan Galleries to bring you this post to show you some of the outfits I shopped before I came. For those of you who do not know, Buchanan Galleries is an indoor shopping centre in Glasgow, Scotland home to a great variety of shops for all your fashion needs! My personal favourite shops within the centre are River Island, H&M and even Quiz has surprised me with a few great items this summer.

It is so easy and the competition is coming to a close this Thursday 29th June so carefully read the details below on how to enter and you can get yourself on over there this week and try bag yourself a new wardrobe!

Outfit number one is this amazing jumpsuit from Quiz. I must say this is the most comfortable, best fitting and an around perfect item. I have worn this on a few occasions so far when the weather has been a little cooler and cloudy at night (hence the sky in the photo below!) You can shop it here: JUMPSUIT
Now the rest of my clothes were bought in River Island, I can’t even lie, I love the place! It is always my go to store and the one in Buchanan Galleries is amazing and always has a great selection.
First up is this amazing floaty arm wrap top which you will see is a common style in this post. I firstly got this burgundy, yellow, black toned top and paired it with some grey shorts, both which you can shop here: TOP / SHORTS
This may be my favourite outfit as it is so comfortable and flattering yet can look both casual and dressy all at once. Exactly what you need on holiday. A fitted pink crop top and some high waisted white torn shorts. SHORTS / TOP
Next is this amazing blue wrap top, similar to the one above but also very different at the same time! I cannot find the exact top on the website but you can shop the exact top in a different colour pattern here: TOP
Last but not least is this amazing pair of shoes, wooden candles with a white and gold detail. I am absolutely in love with them as you can probably tell from the photos as they are in every single one! These were on sale so sadly I have no link to them!

Can brunch be your favourite meal or is that cheating since it is technically classed as two meals put together? Either way it is my fave. In case you have not noticed. I am addicted to sweet food, yes I know how dare I drink maple syrup by the gallon, but it is true. I make up for this addiction by making healthy recipes of typically not so healthy foods // french toast, pancakes? Usually high in fat and processed sugar and not to mention crammed with unhealthy animal products like eggs, milk, butter and other dairy items not too friendly on the arteries .. or the waist line! So I bring you wonderful people some healthy vegan brunch ideas! PS the french toast is my favourite.

Hey guys! In line with the youtube video I just uploaded talking about my experience with intermittent fasting please see the 3 recipes below that I would eat in a typical day! Intermittent fasting is not a diet, not a fast, not a calorie restriction method or anything like that. It is merely a way of eating. Thus you eat 2-3 large meals per day within a 6-8 hour window versus 5-6 small meals per day over 10-12 hours. Personally I naturally eat this way and love it. Please see my youtube video here for more and check out the recipes below!
