If you’re anything like me, you’ll be the type of person who is forever looking for new kinds of food to try. I’m not someone who will stick to one type of food when looking for somewhere to brunch with friends or dine on date night. I enjoy finding something different, something with new flavours and dishes and also somewhere that’s Instagrammable is an absolute plus. Well Turtle Bay in Colchester covers all of this! I attended the opening of this restaurant a few months ago where we got to try some samples from the menu which were all amazing so this time I decided to drag my friend Tarnya along with me to try some dishes of our choice. We started the only way you should in Turtle Bay…with Cocktails. Lucky for us it was happy hour and we got 2 for 1 on each of our drinks. I… View Post

I am always looking for ways to jazz up my house with something new and what better way to do that than with a new print to brighten the walls? I have become a woman obsessed. From cute quotes, maps of places we have been and not to mention ALL the Harry Potter artwork, prints have very much become a staple in the Lewis household. I wanted to share with you a few of my faves along with my go to places to buy them. Map of New York- Desenio Having been to NYC this time last year and falling head over heels in love with it, our house naturally is now covered with New York themed everything. My fave being this print from Desenio. They also have it available in other locations so you can have your very own collection or a ‘where we have been’ travel wall in… View Post

I feel like I am probably the only person in the world who has this opinion but I CAN’T STAND MATTE LIPSTICKS. There, I said it.  I have found around 3 matte lipsticks I can actually bare wearing and they are by Mac, Charlotte Tilbury and Chanel. I constantly have dry lips despite drinking gallons of water and applying lip balm by the bucket load so matte lipsticks do not work for me.  Going to sound like the worst blogger now, but i haven’t actually purchased a new lipstick in about 6 months (oh, the horror). Once I find a lip product I love, I find it difficult to move away from it and try something new. Lately it’s been a mix of Charlotte Tilbury’s Bitch Perfect and Mac’s Peach Blossom- ultimate old faves! BUT, I had a trip to my local Boots after work this week to pick up… View Post

Oh hi there, it’s been a while, right?! Soz for it all being quiet on the blog front, I decided to take (most of) January as a break from writing and general blog happenings. More of that later, but first, what better way to come back than with a little Lush faves hey?  Have to admit, i spent a while in Lush sniffing all of their new releases for Valentines day and these three were the ones that stood out for me.  Unicorn Horn Bubble Bar Back this year is the popular Unicorn Horn, not only is it super pretty and totally instagrammable it also smells incredible. With lavender oil to relax and neroli oil which apparently helps “increase serotonin levels in the brain which makes you feel contented”. YES LUSH. I used this last night in my bath and legit didn’t want to get out of it (until the water… View Post

Last week was one of the most hectic weeks I’ve had in a long time, you know the ones where you seem to be busy everyday after work and all you really want to do is cosy up on your sofa with a hot chocolate…so antisocial.  But I was, however, excited for Thursday evening as the lovely people at Intu Lakeside invited me (along with a whole host of beaut bloggers) down to experience their brand new Christmas Village & Ice Skating Rink.  I went with the lovely Hannah from Hannatalks.com and we were amazed to see how big the skating rink was! After grabbing a cheeky hot chocolate (it was obviously bloomin’ freezing in there!) we watched people braving it on the ice rink!  (I say watched because it took us a good hour until we plucked up the courage ourselves!)  The Crystal Bar sells a wide range of drinks from… View Post
