New Natural Skin Care from Peachy Fox Marine Collagen Eye Gel Review

Hey Sweeties,

So I don’t know if you recently knew that I turned 30 years old (because I definitely haven’t been mentioning it on here or my social channels), but I did and while I am still regarded as ‘young’, I am not twenties young anymore which means I need to start adapting certain things to better suit this new age and time of life. I am soon to do a post more about my daily skin care routine, but a new element I have introduced is a product that specifically targets my under-eye area. In the past 10 years, I have been really good with cleansing and moisturising daily, but eye creams have been a bit hit and miss; they just haven’t been all that necessary… until now!

Perfect Chilled Saturday | Bottomless Brunch at The Botanist Marlow

Hey Sweeties,

At the beginning of the month, I was invited* to try the new bottomless brunch at The Botanist in Marlow. I had recently visited and tried out the dinner and cocktail menu at the new Reading location, so I was excited at being able to get the opportunity to return to The Botanist. I also had never before visited Marlow.

Bottomless Brunch at The Botanist Marlow

Located on West Street in Marlow, The Botanist is set amongst gorgeous old English buildings containing a mixture of restaurants, coffee shops, thrift stores, and high street fashion retailers as well as more boutique offerings; I fell in love with Marlow straight away. The Botanist has a lovely large front that on our arrival was wide open so customers could sit in the open window and people watch as they enjoyed a beverage or two. My friend and I were greeted warmly on arrival and lead to the back of the restaurant to our table.

Living in the moment, lessons learnt & other Reflections from my Twenties

Hey Sweeties,

On the eve of my 30th birthday, today is my final day as a woman in my twenties and while I am excited by the prospect of turning the page on a new chapter of life, equally I am kinda’ freaking out.

On reflection, my twenties have been amazing, a real roller coaster of experiences and emotions and I do not regret anything. Everything that I have seen, done, loved, lived, visited, worked, lost and found, has all contributed to the woman I am today. My twenties has been my time to get to know me, explore life, take different paths, and experience what the hell I want to, completely guilt free.

I would pour yourself a brew and get some snacks because if you have never been here before, you’re going to be here a while; and if you are a regular reader then you know how much I can write and this post is no different. Get comfy.

Slow and Steady Wins YOUR Race | 5K Giff Gaff Money Fit Challenge

Hey Sweeties,

I recently took part in a fun 5K organised by Giff Gaff Money that took place at Shoreditch Park in south east London. The 5K consisted of completing four laps of the park, which also had a bouncy castle type obstacle to get through located shortly after the start/finish line. Following the run, eight people at random were selected to take part in another challenge (of riding a rodeo pig), of which the three with the best time would win £1000, £500 and £250 for their chosen charity respectively.

Hungry for Pizza? Here are Five Things you should try at Franco Manca

Hey Sweeties,

A couple of weeks ago I was invited to spend the evening at Franco Manca in Reading – a chain of restaurants that specialise in sourdough pizza. The team at Franco Manca hosted a special evening to let local media, bloggers etc. sample some of the menu and hand selected organic and natural wines, no logo beer and cider, and other drinks. To be honest I had never heard of Franca Manco until attending this event, so I was full of intrigue before my arrival. Now I have experienced them for myself however, I thought it only right that I share five things you need to check out for yourself if you get the chance to visit Franco Manca.
