Let’s all go Crackers over a cracker!

A few days ago I brought you my top Advent Calendar picks. That said, I hope you got your hand on one, as today’s post is all about the Christmas cracker. Now my thoughts on Christmas crackers… I don’t particularly like them. The majority of crackers out there are not that high quality and honestly, a bit of a waste of money. With contents such as fine paper hats (that

Get that feeling with Sorbet Salons!

When I first saw the posters displayed on the windows of an empty retail spot that said ‘New Sorbet Salon opening soon’, I have to admit I was a tad bit skeptical!

Hello Winter! The Autumn/Winter month’s are some of my favourite months. One, because it’s during my my birthday!! Two, because, well, it’s quite a romantic and Christmas is not that far away!

Paul and Joe Cosmetics

However, when I started to see these cute little Cat lip sticks popping up everywhere in my Instagram feed, it was time to investigate!
