Around The World Summer Cocktail Launch Nottingham

Image
On the evening of Thursday 27th July. I was invited to sample the new Summer Cocktail lauch at All Around The World with Notts Local News and fellow Nottingham bloggers.  This amazing bar is in the Bierkeller Entertainment Complex on Friar lane. This is the first time that I had visited since it used to be Walk About and it has been totally transformed. It's a beautiful venue with 3 sections Shooters Sports Bar (Top Floor), All Around The World (Ground Floor) and The Bierkeller (Bottom Floor).   All Around The World's new cocktail menu is my definition of summer because nothing says summer to me like a fresh fruity cocktail in a glass. All Around The World has added 18 seasonal cocktails to its list of classics and favourites. I'm here to share with you in this post my thoughts and my personal favourite cocktails from the new menu. What I love about cocktails from All Around The World is that they are all made fresh and right infront of of your eyes

Debenhams Annual Summer Gala Nottingham

On Wednesday 26th July at 6pm I went with Becky ( LilacBeautyBunny ) to Debenhams Annual Summer Gala at the Nottingham store. It was a fantastic event full of all of my favourite things which is Strawberry daiquiris (from Revolution De Cuba ), Chocolate Brownies (from Heavenly Desserts ) and make up. I loved Gem 106 's pop up photobooth because I can never resist taking a selfie inside an Instagram frame. We were invited to the Bare Minerals counter to watch a make over on a live model using their products. I'm a big fan of Bare Minerals as their products are cruelty free, skin-loving and pure. We got to smell and test all of the products which the beauty consultants used on the model. The staff were full of knowledge and happy to answer any questions that we had. Each person who attended got given a raffle ticket to win a prize from the BareMinerals counter. Also, there was a separate raffle for Debenhams. I'm proud to say that I won a prize from the BareMine

The 150-seater venue features four hot food stalls and a bar which are all run by local independent traders . Nottingham Street Food clubs allows the people of Nottingham to eat globally but dine locally. On Friday July 21st at 7pm I was invited by Intu Victoria Centre to a gin and jazz evening to sample the food and drink which is on offer.

We were provided with 1 food and 4 drinks tokens. I like how we could pick and choose what food we wanted from any of the food stands.I enjoyed socialising with fellow bloggers and asking their thoughts on what foods they had ordered. Everyo

RIP Chester Bennington

Image
I'm so sad to hear about the passing of Chester Bennington. I love Linkin Park and they hold a special place in my heart. This is because Linkin Parks albums  Hybrid Theory (2000) and Meteora (2003) were there for me in my early teenage years. Linkin Park gave me support without even knowing it. I have happy memories of sitting in art class at school when I was 15. I loved painting and creating while listening to my SONY CD player with Linkin Park's "Meteora" album blasting loudly in my ears. Linkin Park helped me to feel and release emotions when I was growing up. I wasn't open with my communication as I am today. When I was a teenager I used to bottle up all of my emotions and hold everything inside. Music spoke what I couldn't express. Sometimes I find the best way to recharge my energy is by being alone while listening to music as I'm empathic and a outgoing introverted personality type. Chester Bennington made me realise that it's OK t

Peachy Fox London Anti-Redness Skin Calming Cream Review

Image
I was excited to be able to try Peachy Fox 's Anti-Redness skin calming cream. I love finding new beauty brands which are made in the UK and are cruelty-free.  I turned cruelty free with beauty products last year in April and It's the best decision I've ever made. I shared this in my blog post called Cruelty Free Beauty .  So let's take a look at this product. First of all what I noticed is that the moisturiser is a perfect size for travel or to pop in your hand bag. I love that this moisturiser is a pump so it's convenient and easy to apply the product on your face or body. The consistency of the moisturiser is thick so I would recommend giving your skin plenty of time to let it sink in. I have sensitive skin and it makes my skin feel smooth and hydrated. It is Rosacea friendly  and recommended to help reduce the appearance of scars. I have acne scars as due to my oily to combination skin type so this is perfect for me to use. I love how it's made

Happy 3rd Birthday BunnyMoonstone

Image
This week my YouTube channel and blog celebrated it's 3rd birthday on the 4th July. To celebrate BunnyMoonstone's birthday I'd like to share with you (in no particular order) my 5 top favourite videos and also a short reflection on what I've learnt in the 3 years that I've been on YouTube. Let me know in the comments below what your favourite Bunny Moonstone video is so far. 1. White Post Farm A great day out with my friend Sarah at White Post Farm  in Farnsfield. We loved looking at all of the cute animals and had plenty of giggles. My favourite part was when we raced the pedal go karts. It was a challenge driving and vlogging at the same time. 2. Snizl Bloggers Event This was a jam-packed evening of visiting some of Nottingham's hidden gems around the city. Snizl Bloggers Event was the biggest event that I had filmed on my YouTube channel so far. It was great to meet and network with a large group of bloggers. My favourite part of the evening was w

Swatch #YOURMOVE Bloggers Event

When the email dropped into my inbox to have the opportunity to come along to Swatch #YOURMOVE bloggers evening I knew I couldn't pass up the chance. The theme for the night was celebrating Swatch's new collection of SKIN watches. The #YOURMOVE campaign is all about what moves you. What moves you? what are you passionate about? Let me know in the comments below. What moves me is music. I love moving my body to music and letting my hair down. Music washes away the struggles of everyday life and allows me to be free in my mind. On arrival we were greeted with delicious fruit smoothies and healthy canapes. I particularly enjoyed the chocolate protein balls. I'm a foodie so I always enjoy what food and treats are on offer. Following on from the food and socialising with fellow Nottingham bloggers we then had a chance to look around the Swatch store and at the new SKIN collection. All bloggers recieved a goodie bag and we got to pick a Swatch watch out of 10 d
