Homemade 'Cheese' & Onion Popcorn & PROPERCORN's #InstituteOfFlavour


Popcorn has to be one of my all-time fave go-to snacks - it's easy, quick and can have so many health benefits (depending what you throw onto it) as a great source of antioxidants, fibre and vitamin B. I love that it can be flavoured in so many ways, but my most regularly made recipe is 'cheese' - of course all recipes around these parts are vegan, but what I can let you in on is that it's the best 'cheesy' popcorn my taste buds have ever come across and it only takes a few ingredients to get it together...

Exclusive Space NK Discount Code: Get £15 Off When You Spend £60

Space NK lovers, listen up! I've managed to get my hands on an exclusive discount code that's worth shouting from the rooftops which may help justify ticking a few products off your wish list. When Space NK throw some offers out there, they're usually not to be missed and their spend-£60-get-£15-off has got to be one of the best. The code you'll need here is BEAUTY BUFF entered in at the checkout, it's online only but it does still work with their current offer of free delivery over £40. If you're a regular Space NK shopper, you'll know just how easy it is to ring up double-figures on the till but if you're in need of any ideas, especially since there's some new and very exciting launches and yes, I am talking about the Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop Limited Edition Collection, I've put together a couple to help hit that mark, or just ever so slightly over...

Vegan Designer Fashion Picks



Vegan-friendly fashion is not all too hard to come by on the high street, with many brands and stores offering affordable, synthetic clothing and accessories, but coming across a designer replacement for my past leather handbag favourite has been more of a challenge. There are a number of high fashion brands committed to producing cruelty-free, sustainable items and there are even fewer others, who may not be known for having a full line of faux-leather goods, but just so happen to offer the odd few which get the vegan stamp of approval, though hunting them down can be the long, drawn-out and difficult part. I've had a good virtual shop about, not only for options to rebuild my own wardrobe, but also because I get asked for vegan designer fashion recommendations regularly - from left to right, top, middle and bottom, here's what I've unearthed so far...

Elemis BIOTEC Skincare System Range at John Lewis



As a previous spa-therapist, Elemis is one brand that I'm all too familiar with and with every new and exciting launch comes an extension to my shopping list. Their latest, the BIOTEC range, is available at John Lewis and is made up of three products: the Skin Energising Cleanser, Skin Energising Day Cream and Skin Energising Night Cream. I'll be giving the said trio a real road test over the next month so all eyes peeled for my final thoughts to come, but until then, here's the need-know on all skin things BIOTEC...

NIOD's Photography Fluid A.K.A an Instagram Filter for your Face



If you're familiar around these parts, you'll know a bold claim doesn't happen all too regularly unless I have a whole lot of love for something and four months into the year so far I've come across some real makeup game-changers, but there's been one that's already stood out above the rest and I'm going to go as far as saying I've unearthed my favourite product of 2016 right here. A full write-up has been in the works for a while, especially since the product in question has made an appearance in a handful of videos recently where I've proclaimed my love for it on every given occasion - allow me to introduce you to the real life Instagram filter for your face, NIOD's Photography Fluid...
