INDULGE: Dirty Burgers at GPT

One early Autumn evening, James and I decided to try out somewhere totally new for an INDULGE evening. GPT is a Smokehouse just down the road from us and describes itself as a "vibrant, dynamic venue with a focus on great, locally sourced food". Sounds alright to us.

It was a fairly quiet evening when we took a visit. We were immediately struck by the quirky interior and the intimacy of the place. Filled with large, cosy leather sofas and a circus-esque bar, it felt totally the vibe we were after.

With a glass of wine in hand and we were prepared to get dirty (Not Christina Aguilera Dirrty, pardon you). This was a 'go hard or get the hell out of here' type menu and we were up for it.
Starting with sticky, smoky, sweet chicken wings...

Oily Skin 101

I've got a video coming your way shortly on my tips and tricks for oily skin, aka, one of the biggest banes of my life.
If you have oily skin or combination skin, I hear your pain. It can be an absolute nightmare. Different companies tell you one thing and which products you should be using whereas your skin is telling you a whole other story.

Green Juicin'

Beyond The Kale Bath Menu Opening Hours Review Vegan Vegetarian Health Cafe Bath She's So Lucy
Ah the humble green juice. Many moons ago, any form of green food would have had me running for all the packets of Maltesers I could find. Now, they've taken over me and have transformed me into a Green Loving Monster. Tenderstem broccoli, avocado, KALE (I couldn't be a true GLM if I didn't love kale...).
There's a health food shop called Beyond The Kale where I live (blog post coming soon aaaaaall about it) where I've been stopping off regularly on my way to work or on my way to a lecture to pick up a green juice. Here is the Vitamin C Booster which is pineapple, orange, celery and kale. Weird combination, I know but believe me, when this is blitzed and blended together it is delicious.
I'm always rather sceptical of all things containing orange or pineapple as both are high sugar fruits meaning they mess my system, hormones and skin up, but so far my skin doesn't seem to have had a green juice related eruption. They didn't even put a massive amount of pineapple or orange into the mix anyway.
It's safe to say I'm rather addicted to green juices now, and I've been eyeing up the NutriBullet for a little while too.

Are you a fan of green juices?

[YouTube] Topshop, Primark and Whole Foods Haul

Woohoo, we finally have a new video! I won't lie, I had some mega issues with YouTube trying to upload this. Nevertheless, here's my most recent video - a HAUL! Something tells me that my next video may be another haul but we'll see..... oops.

So, it's Sunday morning, you're probably still in bed, go quickly grab a nice warm drink and cosy up to watch this.
Meanwhile, I'm off to work....!


Enjoy, and please like, comment and subscribe.

A trip back home

As I mentioned in my previous post, I recently decided to go back home for a few days to see my friends and family. My summers mostly consist of me having to stay at work not only because they need me there but also in order to simply afford my rent. This then unfortunately means I barely get to see my mum, brother, dog and friends, sob.

So, on the rare occasion that I was back in town I made it my priority that I met up with my favourite ladies. As most of my friends now have all moved away for University, it's difficult for us all to meet up on a regular basis so this was one gigantic catch up.
 I always experience rather mixed feelings when I return to Winchester. I went to school and college in Winchester and didn't have the happiest of memories there however I do appreciate that despite that, it is a rather lovely city.
 Louise and Izzy insisted that we came to Nicola's Tea Shop for some lunch and what we do best, a good old gossip!
I tucked into a fish finger sandwich, my favourite if I'm up for a bit of a treat lunch (though nothings compares to my Dad's). We discussed everything from boys to blogs, work and university and just a good old general catch up.

Later that evening, Katie, Louise and I all went to visit our friend Maya for the last barbecue of the year and caught up with other old school-friends too.
