I recently visited Pizza Faith after finding out that they serve gluten free bases, as well as normal vegan bases/pizza. We went as a trio, one Vegan, one gluten free, and one carnivore. Cheeses can even come in milk and vegan form so it keeps everyone happy.
We were able to choose from various toppings and sides, many of which are vegan and gluten free, and they even do deserts and donuts.
Pizzas start from £5 where you can create your own, choose one from the menu. and you can also combine with a side and drink to create a meal deal.
Last week I was invited to attend Spectrum brushes press event for their new collection of marble brushes.
This cruelty free brush brand is Barry born and bred and know their stuff when it comes to brushes that set themselves apart from the rest.
To launch the new whopping 35 piece set, named the Holy Grail set, we were treated to an evening of pampering from Nails Inc, buffet from local veggie and vegan cafe Milgis, and cocktails and bubbles from Candy Kittens and Dirty Martini.
Read on to see what went on in this special evening!
Saturday the 3rd of December, if you happen to be shopping in Cardiff check out the W7 bus which is arriving in the town centre to show you W7 products, demo some products and have gifts with purchase when you purchase any W7 item from Peacocks, St Davids (While stocks last!).
The bus will be there from 10:30am – 5pm, with Miss Universe Great Britain and I’m A Celebrity star Amy Willerton sharing her hints and tips between 11:30am – 2pm!
I have been testing out some current W7 products myself and the quality for the price point is incredible. If you have the time definitely check out what they have to offer and have a little make over by one of the W7 artists on board. They have some fantastic dupes for higher end products, such as the Naked Palette by Urban Decay, called Colour Me Nude and Colour Me Buff, and Shy Beam by Benefit, called Night Light! They have over 650 products to choose from so you’re bound to find a purse friendly secret Santa gift or if you’re on a budget this is the perfect brand for you. An added bonus to W7 is that they are a cruelty free brand, which is perfect if you’re currently changing your make up bag to cruelty free items.
Last week I was invited along to see Pixi’s new Holiday collection at the St Davids Hotel in Cardiff Bay. I’ve always loved Pixi products and I haven’t had the chance to go to London recently to see what’s new so I was excited to see Amanda for a catch up and what was new for this season.
Products from the collection range from £12 and go up to £28, which include pigments, a new Ultimate Beauty Kit and a pack of eyeliners with limited edition colours. There’s also a new skincare product which I’m very excited to try!
Read on to see what products are available this season. Full reviews will follow, but here is a short summary of what products you can find!
It’s that time of year where Cardiff braces itself for up and coming talent in the fashion world, showcase whats available to purchase in stores in our city and celebrate Welsh design, fashion and art. Cardiff Fashion Week takes place from the 22nd of October till 29th of October 2016, with showcases and events happening across the city.
This years main event and catwalk show will take place in the beautiful Masonic Hall on Saturday the 29th of October 2016, which will showcase a collection of work done by the University of South Wales, Welsh Fashion Designers and retailers.
Earlier this month I was lucky enough to work on the day when Mark Hill came into store to demonstrate his new Pick and Mix range of hair tools and products. I popped down to have a look at the display and Meet Mark on my lunch break. There was an array of products on display including every wand available to purchase, three demo stations to have your hair done by one of the wands of your choice and a pop up selfie booth. I was told that they had a blogger event in the morning as they assumed that’s why I popped along, I wasn’t invited to but didn’t mind as I got to see the event all day from my counter.
I have a fight or flight mode when it comes to my mental health, and usually I choose flight. In the past I have gotten on random buses or trains and just gotten off at the last stop to have a walk around and clear my head, which can be a bit dangerous for me because I have no sense of direction. So when I need to de-stress or try to get away for a hour or two I try to stick to my area of Cardiff and have a look around charity shops. This way I don’t spend money that I usually don’t have, its kind of guilt free knowing it’s going to charity and can get my frustrations out by rummaging around boxes and coat rails of clothes. The best thing to do is go with an open mind and you’ll find some things you were totally not expecting.
My favourite place to go is Albany Road. I’ve heard that Canton is also great for charity shops as my friends have managed to pick up genuine bags and purses for under £5 because the shops think they’re fake, but I’ve yet to go there.

I was very lucky to be invited to Cardiff Debenhams Blogger event where we were treated to a look at some new launches from 4 premium beauty brands. The night would include a rotation of counters where we learnt about skincare, base tips and tricks, colour and getting the perfect brows and liner.
The brands included in this night were Estee Lauder, Dior, Urban Decay and Yves Saint Laurent Beauty.
After being a big fan of Jamie xx for around 4 years, I missed out on getting tickets to his last London date, but this time around my friend and I were prepared, so prepared that we managed to be one of the lucky ticket holders for his set in Alexandra Palace in February. His sets and gigs sell out in a matter of minutes, and this date was no different.
Part of the critically acclaimed British group The xx, Jamie produces his own music using samples and original beats to create euphoric melodies and upbeat dance numbers. Some of his most popular songs include the newly released I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times), Far Nearer, and Take Care with Gil Scott-Heron’s, which was also covered by Drake and Rihanna.
The venue had a projected album cover on the outside for the night, lighting up the area with rainbow hues and exciting the queues of people further that they’d be seeing Jamie inside.
It’s that time of the year where a bunch of us local welsh bloggers get invited to a get together in Lush to shop and try their new product lines, this time it was for their new limited editions in their Mothers Day and Easter lines. Bath Bombs, Bubble Bars and scrubs were all being demo’d as well as well as mini hand demo’s of face masks and scrubs and hand products. Continue reading “Lush Easter Bloggers Event!”→
