London | The Breakfast Club Hoxton

The Breakfast Club Menu

Last weekend I went up to London with my two besties, Hannah and Candela, to celebrate our birthdays. They all fall kind of around the same time, so it was an excuse to treat ourselves! When we were deciding on what to do, The Breakfast Club came into the conversation. Both Hannah (Suitcase and Sandals) and I had never been, but Candela had said it was amazing for brunch. One glance at the menu on their website and I was completely sold.

We arrived outside The Breakfast Club at half ten on Sunday morning and there was already a bit of a queue. I think we ended up waiting in the rain for about twenty minutes... it was very cold and miserable weather but the wait was definitely worth it.

Inside, the interiors were really funky with disco balls hanging from the ceiling! We ended up in a little booth which was perfect for the three of us. We were originally seated on one of the long benches but not gonna lie, it wasn't that comfortable, so we asked to move and the staff were very accommodating and had no problem with it.

All three of us ended up going for the pancakes with bacon and maple syrup - my absolute favourite! When they came out I was literally drooling. They were so delicious! I am one of those people that likes to drown my pancakes in maple syrup, so of course we had to ask for extra.

For drinks Hannah and I shared a pitcher of iced tea, which was also really nice and refreshing. We also got a fair few drinks from it. Iced tea is definitely one of my favourites! I know it is probably more of a summer drink, but it just tastes so good!

I would love to go back to The Breakfast Club again sometime in the future. The food was amazing and the staff were also really friendly. I know we had to wait in the rain for a while to get in, but it was definitely worth it.

Because it was such a miserable day we were a bit short of ideas for what we could do that was inside! In the end we went bowling at All Star Lanes in Brick Lane. It is a really cute little bowling alley with a bar and nice booths to the side. After having not been bowling in a while it was great fun!

Have you ever been to The Breakfast Club?

Christmas with Caudalie

I don't know about you but I feel like the weeks to Christmas are rushing by and I am starting to panic about getting Christmas presents! I know I still have a while left but as the weeks go by I am now coming to realise I don't have a clue what to get anyone... Howver one type of gift that never fails for your mum, sister, or bestie is skincare or beauty products. I find that these are the type of things that everyone likes to receive.

Review | L'Oreal Paris False Lash Superstar Red Carpet Mascara

L'Oreal Paris False Lash Superstar Red Carpet Mascara
Finding the perfect mascara is one very difficult task. You need it to give volume, lift, lengthen and curl, while also staying put for the whole day. So what would you say if I had found a mascara that did all those things and more?! I have been wearing the L'Oreal Paris False Lash Superstar Red Carpet Mascara* every day since I got it and have been overwhelmed with the results it gives!

L'Oreal Paris False Lash Superstar Red Carpet Mascara

It is a dual ended mascara to help you achieve maximum results from your lashes. One end contains a white primer, which you apply to your lashes first. This helps thicken each of your lashes to give them more volume. Next you apply the lifting brush. This coats your lashes in a black formula that will lift and curl them into the perfect position. Honestly the results from this mascara are incredible - I don't even need to use eyelash curlers beforehand! It really does look like I am wearing false eyelashes.

I also love that the hold lasts all day so my eyelashes will look perfectly curled and in place for the whole day without losing any of their volume. I don't get any bits crumbling off or any smudging around my eyes. It just stays put so well. You might think that this means it would be difficult to remove but actually I have just been using my Garnier Micellar Water to remove it and it has been coming off just fine.

The False Lash Superstar Mascara retails at £10.95. This is slightly more pricier than a normal mascara, but it is well worth the extra! I have never been able to achieve these results from any other mascara. I had LVL done a few months ago and although my eyelashes are now back to normal, this mascara makes it look like I have had it done again. So amazing!

I was very kindly sent this mascara from, where they sell a whole range of other mascaras and also lots of false eyelashes as the name would suggest! Stocking brands such as Ardell, Chelsea Beautique, Esqido (my fave falsies), Eylure and more, you can pick up your favourite products and get free first class delivery! I know that I will be heading there when I am in need of some new falsies!

Have you ever tried this mascara? What did you think of it?

Review | Ogario Revive & Shine Conditioner

Ogario Revive and Shine Shampoo and Conditioner

I'm back again today with another amazing product from one of my favourite haircare ranges, the Ogario Revive & Shine Conditioner*. Alongside this I have been using the Revive & Shine Shampoo* and together they make the most wonderful pair.

After finishing my bottle of the Hydrate and Shine Conditioner from Ogario, I was looking forward to trying out this one. I have quite dry, split ends so this one sounded like it would work a treat... and it has! My hair is so much more hydrated and less frizzy. I have noticed how much less dry it now looks and whats more, my hair now has a lovely shine to it. I will be honest and say that I haven't noticed much difference between the results from using this conditioner and the Hydrate and Shine conditioner too. But either way I am over the moon with the results.

One of the best things about using this conditioner is that the formula is concentrated. Having long, thick hair I seem to go through bottles of conditioner so quickly. But as you only need a little bit of this with each application, the bottle lasts so much longer! As it is so thick, I would recommend putting a little into the ends of your hair and then using a wide tooth comb or tangle teezer to brush it through. This makes such a difference! You will definitely notice how much softer your hair is after doing this.

I am not as keen on the scent of this one. I don't quite know how to describe it - it just smells a little strange. However, it is something I have gotten used to the more I used it. I wouldn't say it is unpleasant, it has a fresh scent to it, but it isn't something I would normally like. I prefer more florally scents.

The Ogario haircare range has well and truly stolen my heart. I don't see myself loving any other shampoo or conditioner sets as much as I do with these. My hair is always left feeling super clean, smelling delicious and really soft and shiny. All the products in the range are salon quality and give such great results. I hope they bring out more products soon! I am in the process of reviewing their new styling spray, so hopefully that means more haircare products are on their way.

Have you ever tried any of the Ogario products?
