Ive been away for a month now and I'm back rested.
I think blogging is going to be tough for a while, I do struggle a lot with time management and working full time I know what I'm like, but I'm going to try!
While I was away I had a lot of people asking me to write again as they missed it, which was amazingly sweet, so I will try I promise. I feel like I've started blogging a lot more though Instagram, so I'll maybe split it for writing here and photos over there.
We'll see how it goes but its funny how things change with new social media. Instagram is definitely top dog at the moment, I think I only know of one person who doesn't have it, and I know I obsess over it.
As you all know I am Halloween Mad! I'm going to move to the US and be one of those people who turns their house into a haunted mansion for all the neighbours ... Halloween is the only time I can stand children.
So this years effort was The Crack Fox from the Mighty Boosh ... its actually a costume I've had in mind for years ... I'm quite happy with how it turned out, although I was definitely the most dressed up at the Halloween party I was at.
I've been something scary the last 2 years and next year I want to do something big like have a massive party or something ... why is my Birthday not on Halloween :(
This was a great wee breakfast bar, not to sweet nor too dry and the texture is more like a cereal bar rather than an oat bar, which I prefer. This was the original flavour, so I'm eager to try some of the other flavours that they have.
I was so excited when I opened these, I'm not ashamed to say that I eat A LOT of cookies so vegan ones were very exciting to me. I'm not really in to double chocolate but I liked these, and once again there are loads of different flavours that I can try.
I LOVE LOVE LOVED these. when I first tried them I wasn't too sure .. but the minuet you hit that raspberry bit and the chocolate and berry tastes merge, oh my god! I think I'm definitely going to get these as a sweet treat to add to my lunches at work. I doubt I will ever get sick of raspberries but if I did they have all different kinds. They are a brilliant portion size for lunch boxes too, which is good so that it keeps me from eating millions of them!
Again, these where brilliant. I am a big lover of Indian food so these where demolished. I love spicy food but I'll be honest i had to eat these slowly. I can imagine if your a real curry connoisseur you would devour these. Also if your a vegan having a party these are great for nibbles without non vegan guests moaning.
I didn't read the instructions on this balm and for a week I was putting it on my lips. Apparently its £50 for a full pot, so it must do some good. It had anti ageing built in, I'm only 24 but if something has some anti ageing built in, I'm going to be all over it. I've been dabbing it under my eyes and the skin does look tighter and definitely not as dark as before, but for £50 if it doesn't make me look 18 then I wouldn't be paying it!
These are me favourite thing from this VK box! Hands down the best, tastiest mallows ever!!! I highly reccomend these and I can't rave about them enough!
This is. Great wee bar, I've always said I'm not a massive fan of vegan chocolate but this bitterness is really evened out because of the chewy vanilla granola bar.
Nope. Rank. I really did not enjoy these. I'm not sure what other things you could use them for, maybe on salads? Not for me though, just not a good taste or texture for me, if they done a dry fruit alternative then is probably love it.
Ahhh I loved these! People forget that household things like this aren't vegan and can be tested on animals, so they are harder to find. These were great and no less effective than non vegan ones so I'm sold and my mum has been ordered only to buy these washing tabs!
I love that more and more popcorn companies are doing salt and sweet bags! It's my favourite and I always get it mixed at the cinema! This popcorn was a little different because the sweet was more a toffee popcorn, so if that's how you like your corn this is the one!
Last Wednesday night I was invited over to Edinburgh to visit a wee shop in the city called Godiva Boutique. I'd never been before so I wasn't sure what it was going to be like but its the most adorable little store!
In the front section of the store its all very kitsch and quirky and they have an open floor with a couch and a huge mirror covered in scarfs! I love this layout, it all feels very personal shopper yet still cosy as its open but feels so welcoming that i don't think anyone would be shy about coming out of the fitting room to show of their finds. If you visit the store you will understand what I mean. This is the area where they have all their local designers. I know a lot of Glasgow designers so this was exciting to get to learn about the Edinburgh designers and designers I didn't know about. They have loads of different bits too, clothes, bags, scarfs, purses and some lovely quirky jewellery and accessories.
Moving through to the back of the store you go in to the Vintage section of the store, full of great, very affordable vintage bits. I definitely notice a different in the prices of vintage from Glasgow to Edinburgh and Glasgow is usually more affordable, but Godiva have those Glasgow prices and a brilliant collection of gorgeous vintage dresses!
There was loads of fun things to do at the event, the staff really put so much effort in and had some great ideas, I've enjoyed an event so much in a while. There was demonstrations from Runaway Fox (more on that next) some DIY on how to make your own vintage camera strap from the Godiva girls, lots of amazing cakes and nibbles and a customization station!
The guys from Runaway Fox gave us a demo on their new Body Casting service, which they came up with while working of their new collection, which you have to watch out for! Lets just say it included a very real looking crab claw necklace and a very creepy pigs snout door knob, all animal friendly though!
They cast a few of the girls fingers in front of us to show how they do it, it was so cool! They then made the finger casts in to necklaces for the girls.

Thanks so much to the guys over at Godiva for the invite and hosting a brilliant night!
I can't wait to pop in the next time I'm in Edinburgh!
