THE SUNDAY POST #12

001. On Thursday I went to a Trilogy skincare event, where we got to make our own moisturisers! You may have heard of the brand; their cult product is the rosehip oil. I was really impressed with the brand ethos, and with the products themselves, especially the vital moisturising cream. I've incorporated a few products into my routine so watch this space for a review. 

002. My deliciously Ella cookbook arrived, and I've already bookmarked all the recipes I want to try. I can't wait to make the sweet potato brownies and the almond butter fudge. Can you tell I have a sweet tooth? It's currently on Amazon for £7.99 so go snap it up!

003. I've discovered some great new blogs to read, including LJLV and What Sass Says. Lucy has great personal style, very cool and laid back, and Sarah (who is lovely btw) writes about a mix of subjects. I love her restaurant reviews and recipes. For more outfit inspiration, check out Laura from Fashion, Eats & Treats. Another lovely lady who helped me shoot some outfit pictures this week. I can't wait to share them with you! 

004. We ate at SoLita this week; everyone recommends the burgers but I went for the sticky lime chicken wings and sweet potato fries, which were both delicious. I loved the cocktails too; they have loads of minty, sour drinks with rum and gin, which is perfect as I hate fruity, vodka drinks.

005. A huge congratulations to Anoushka Urban, a fellow Manchester blogger who has won my 500 follower giveaway. I can't wait to see what shades she picks. Thank you again to everyone who entered, and thank you to people who take the time to read and comment on my blog. I wouldn't have been able to host this giveaway without you!

  6. Aw I got a shoutout! :) Thanks once again for bringing me to the Trilogy skincare event, I'm a big fan of the Everything Balm and the moisturiser we made. I did try the rosehip oil but it made me break out, so I'm not quite sure if I should re-use it!
