JB's American Diner

Last night I caught up with a friend in one of my favourite places to eat in Brighton, JB's. I love going there for it's quirky decor, 50's music and amazing milkshakes. 



You can order from a bit of a selection, whether you fancy a burger, steak, sandwich or a salad, it's all there and it's all good (I know, it's bad that I know this). 




My delicious Oreo Milkshake! 
They do quite a few flavours but I'm yet to try any others because the Oreo is just so good! They are huge so I would recommend sharing one between two like we did if you are eating. But if you do manage a whole milkshake and a meal, I commend you!


After hours of gossiping and telling the waitresses 'we're not ready to order yet' four times, we finally ordered Mozzerella Sticks, Fries and Southern Fried Chicken Strips and it was delicious!


The prices are pretty cheap and the atmosphere is different to your usual restaurant. It was a perfect evening to escape from the cold weather and my uni work! 


Where are your favourite places to eat? Let me know!

Slice Sussex

If you live in Sussex or visit Brighton often you must know about this place! Slice Sussex or Sussex Slice as I like to call it (it rolls off the tongue easier!) is the perfect place for the perfect brunch. I've heard so many positive things about this place and it's so close to home I figured I had to give it a try. 
On Sunday after a good gym session, my house-mates and I gave it a shot and it did not disappoint. 


I went for the Full English (minus the mushrooms and tomatoes), added some halloumi and a mug of tea and it was the perfect, most delicious brunch. 


My house-mate chose the No-Meat English which looked equally as delicious.

If fry-ups aren't your thing, do not fear! They do a huge range of stuff - including vegetarian and healthier options so check out the menu below and let me know if you pay a visit!

Redd Lips


Red lipstick is my definitely my go to at the moment. Whether I'm going out shopping or for dinner, I keep reaching for the same three red lip products...

MAC lipstick - Russian Red - 15.50


I recently bought Russian Red from MAC after borrowing it from a friend and I am absolutely addicted.
It's quite a dark red, different to my usual orangey reds, but it's beautiful and it's so perfect for making a winter outfit a bit more colourful. If you're looking for a new red lipstick, I definitely recommend this one especially as it'll suit any skin tone.

MAC Redd Lip pencil - 12.50
This is the perfect red lip pencil for any red lipstick whether it's for a light/dark/orangey red, it works for all. I haven't always used lip pencil with my lipsticks but I find when I do it makes the lip stick application easier, it looks neater and it lasts longer. The MAC products are quite pricey so there are cheaper alternatives, I am a huge fan of Rimmel's lipsticks and lip pencils which are more suitable for when you're on a budget and are equally as good. 


Swatches left to right: MAC Russian Red, Tanya Burr Vampire Kiss, MAC Redd lip pencil.

Tanya Burr - Vampire Kiss Lipgloss - 6.99



To make the lip look more suitable for the evening I've been wearing the Tanya Burr Vampire Kiss lip-gloss on top of the MAC Russian Red. I love the matte look for the day but adding the lip-gloss on top of Russian Red makes it just a bit more special for the night time! I love this lip-gloss for it's colour (and taste I won't lie) but it can get a bit sticky which is difficult when you have long hair and it's windy, but that's expected with any lipgloss!

Bare Minerals Pure Brightening Serum Foundation



Last month Bare Minerals launched their first ever liquid foundation which I was (and still am) so happy about. I've always loved Bare Minerals but I am not so keen on loose powder products because of the mess I make, and Bare Minerals do a lot of loose powder products! 
The day after the product launched I went into the Brighton Bare Minerals store, got my shade matched from the twenty available shades, and purchased the Pure Brightening Serum Foundation in 07 Bare Natural. 
The foundation itself is quite pricey at 26.00 pounds but is a pretty similar price to other high end make up brands. 


The perfecting face brush is sold alongside the foundation for 24.00 pounds. At first I thought this was quite expensive but now I've decided it's a pretty good investment as I am definitely going to be repurchasing this foundation and if not, it can be used with other foundations. 


The foundation itself is light on the skin but makes such a transformation once it's on! I immediately feel that I look more awake and ready for the day ahead. It gives an even looking skin tone and lasts pretty well throughout the day. 
Although I love the product I definitely think this foundation lasts better with the application of a powder afterwards. I use Bare Minerals Mineral Veil to set the foundation and rid of any shine.


A picture of me today wearing the foundation!
Let me know if you have tried this foundation and if so, do you like it!
