KBK: A Tapas Tasting Evening

Last night I had the pleasure of visiting KBK in Manchester. Based in the up and coming Ancoats, KBK was originally (and still is) a meal prep company providing healthy, nutritious meals to the comfort of your door. However, they have expanded and opened up a small restaurant providing a variety of dishes, including tapas-style plates.

German Doner Kebab

 Last night I visited German Doner Kebab to celebrate the opening of their new Manchester-based restaurant. Located in Fallowfield, surrounded by bars, restaurants and a student lifestyle, German Doner Kebab (GDK) is the perfect addition to the area.

A chain restaurant located across the UK and Scotland, as well as the USA and Canada, GDK offers a variety of doner-based meals including kebabs, burgers and boxes to choose from.

Look Fantastic: October Beauty Box


It’s been a little while since I shared anything beauty-related with you all and it’s because I’ve been waiting for something really exciting to begin (which it now has)! I’m so grateful to announce that I am now working with Look Fantastic as one of their Student Ambassadors (the eternal student life has its perks…) and I can’t explain how excited I am about this.

Look Fantastic is a retailer that I’ve followed for a long while now and somewhere I've actually shopped several times as the range of brands stocked are amazing and, of course, the discounts offered are incomparable.

This month I received their October Beauty Box and I thought I’d share my first impressions with you all (all links will be available below each product so that you can shop the product separately and I’ll also link the box itself too).

Zonas: Fertility Awareness Campaign

Infertility is an issue that affects so many. Approximately 1 in 8 women struggle to conceive and sadly 1 in 4 experience miscarriage. Yet it is not something that is openly spoken about regularly.

I recently came across Zonas, a medical-based company that works towards empowering women through gaining more knowledge and understanding of their bodies. Broken down as Zoh (meaning life in Greek) and Zona (the external layer of a female egg), this is a unique area of research available to any woman in the UK.

I think their work is amazing and so important as it is aiming to break the stigma surrounding fertility and enable people to be in control of their own bodies. For a much smaller fee than private health consultations, Zonas can help to identify any barriers early and help to empower people to make their own choices. They provide this through an easy, accessible testing kit.
