YO! Sushi | Glasgow

Hi Darlings 

I have heard of Yo! Sushi for a few years now but I was kinda put off because I have tried supermarket bought sushi before and I wasn't keen on it even though it looked very nice, I know its daft to compare but thats why it took me a while to try anymore sushi. Me and my partner were debating whether to go to Nando's or Yo! Sushi since we recently went to Nando's for my Birthday we decided to have a little change and finally try Yo! Sushi.


Yo! Sushi has 100 locations up and down the Uk and was founded way back in 1997 in Soho, London and since then has grown. Yo! Sushi sells fresh and authentic Japanese street food and sushi. 
Yo! Sushi Glasgow
I went too 2 different locations were there is Yo! Sushi restaurants and they were in Silverburn shopping centre and Breahead Shopping centre. I loved going to both of the restaurants as the staff were very friendly telling you all the info you need to know about the place. The food comes round on a conveyor belt and you get to choose which cold food you would like, if you want hot food or a drinks you ask the waiter or waitress and order the food.

You can choose to sit at the bar or sit on a table, we decided to sit on the table and on the table you have the choice of unlimited water or sparkly water, soy sauce, wasabi sauce, chop sticks and spoons also ginger. 

The bowls are colour coordinated so you can basically work out how much the bill will be at the end not forgetting drinks etc. We went a little crazy and ordered about £40 worth of food because it was the first time we visited and all of the things we tried tasted so amazing. My partners favourite food their was; spicy peppered squid which was breaded squid in spices and he also loved the furikake fries which are japanese style fries with smircha mayo and sprinkled yuzu furikake, sesame, aonori and smokey bonito flakes.

I love the chicken katsu curry which is crispy crumb chicken with a lovely mild curry sauce with delicious pickles and steamed rice. I also loved the Yo! Roll which is their signature roll with fresh salmon, avocado and japanese mayo roll with orange masago.

Overall I loved Yo! Sushi and I regret not going sooner! I love the food and the environment too. I will be going back on a Monday though as 48 of their dishes are only £2.80. If you are a student you also get 25% off the bill.

Have you been to Yo! Sushi before?

Micro Cell 2000 | First Impressions

micro cell 2000 first impressions
 Hi Darlings

I was kindly sent these lovely products to try from the generous people at Micro Cell 2000 and I am so happy I did because it has been far too long since I tried any new nail products so giving this a whirl was something I was looking forward too. A few years back I was addicted to trying new nail polishes that I actually bought nearly 90 in a year but I kinda got over it but now I'm starting to want to try new brands and shades. 

Micro Cell 2000 was founded way back in 1989 and their team of experts with over 3 decades of experience found a treatment for brittle nails to make this unique nail repair system. They have a variety of different products including; nail repair, anti-aging hand care, colour repair and also nail repair green. 

micro cell 2000 review
I was sent over sample size products and I was sent; nail repair remover, nail wonder, nail repair and also a nail colour.

I though the sample sizes looked quite cute and I wish that more nail companies would make nail polishes this small because sometimes you only want to use nail shades a few times but you foot the big for a large bottle, I defiantly see the room for smaller products for smaller prices. The designs of these are a little dated in my opinion but the bottles are quite sturdy and the lids stay in place.

I used all of the products and they all work very well but I can't say I liked the nail colour because I feel like it didn't last long without chipping but with the nail repair I did feel like a few uses of it has help to strengthen my nails which is brilliant because I am starting to grow my own nails instead of buying false nails all the time.

Birchbox October | Review

Hi Darlings! 
I hope you are all well! I have been getting Birchbox now on and off for nearly 3 years now and I have had a love hate relationship with the subscription box for  a while now. When I first got the boxes I was always excited to see what I would be getting every month but now its been so typical that its not been exciting at all and to be honest with you all I found this months box such a waste of money and I will explain why below. 

I feel like more effort goes into the box design rather than whats in the actual box itself, I can't deny this months box and every other months boxes have been beautiful but it's such a big let down to be greeted with so many bloody samples and not just any samples, stuff you have tried before!
Birchbox October Review
Inside this months box 

Model Co Contour Stick || RRP £8 SAMPLE 👀
I got this a few months back and I can't say I loved it to be honest, I prefer my other contour products so I was a lil disappointed to get it again. I love the scent of this product though its very nice. Its easy to apply and gives an effortless contour.

Balance Me Pure Skin Face Wash || RRP £16 SAMPLE 👀
The size of this is kind of a let down for sure but I am sure it will come in handy whenever I go travelling or something like that. This is 100% natural and is supposed to remove makeup gently while moisturising at the same time.

Anatomicals Birchbox Exclusive Grab Your Melons Shower Gel || RRP £1.50 FULL SIZE 👅
Defiantly my favourite product of the box! I am looking forward to giving this a whirl.

R + Co Badlands Dry Shampoo Paste || RRP £22 SAMPLE 😒
The size of this product is super tiny and I don't feel like I can try it long enough to give it a fair review which is unfortunate. You apply this by rubbing a small amount between the fingers and massaging through hair focusing on roots.

Whish Three Wishes Body Butter Almond || £16.70 SAMPLE 😞
I love the smell of this product which smells like aloe, shea and raspberry butter. This is to help keep skin feeling nourished and also to protect the skin.


As much as I love a good sample I simply find the amount 'Birchbox' are sending out is unacceptable to me and I know that a lot of people don't mind that but for me personally I find it such a waste of money at £10 plus £2.95 for P&P is a little too steep for samples, especially when most of them will end up stuck in the bottom of my skincare drawer.

Sorry Birchbox I just had to cancel. I am on the lookout for a better beauty box, if you have any suggestions comment below or message me x

Malee Natural Science Room Mist | Review

malee room mist review
Hi Darlings!

I just love coming home to a lovely smelling home so I was delighted when I was sent this stunning 'Malee Natural Science Room Mist" This room mist reminds me a lot of Lush products because of the key ingredients it has such as refreshing mint and warm and earthy patchouli which is also a key ingredients in lots of different lush products.

Malee was inspired by the rich landscapes, alluring scents and wisdom of Africa. The fragrances are 100% natural and are sciencefically proven to heal protect and pamper your skin. The room mist is a great multi-tasker and you can use it on your linen, upholstery and clothing. 
male natural science room mist | Review
I just love how delicate this mist is, it comes out in perfect amounts and does not stain any fabric it touches which is a good bonus as I have tried many products that manage to stain even though they say they don't. I love to spray this on my rug, cushions, curtains and bedding and the fragrance is just divine and I will explain more about in a moment but for now I will just have to say the fragrance is so long lasting! Now a bit more about the fragrance; its very citrusy and awakens me overtime i smell it. I can tell its a good product as you can smell the quality. 

 It lasts a fair few days before it needs a top refresh. The bottle itself is a very respectable size of 100ml which costs £34 which I think is a good price for a more natural smelling product than what you can find in a supermarket.

Do you use room mists?

October Outfits | Bright Vixen

October outfit bright outfit
Hi Darlings!

I hope everyone has had a lovely weekend! I sure did but I wish it lasted a bit longer because for me they always go to fast. On the weekend a managed to clean my entire flat top to bottom, finish watching prison break *boo* and order some amazing bits off love honey. Any doodles back onto this post, I just love fashion but I don't manage to post about it as often as I would like too so I have challenged myself to do a few fashion posts this month and have them as 'October outfits'

October is one of my all time favourite months; firstly its because I love halloween but it's not for the obvious reasons its because I love all the spooky homeware and home decor. I also love walking outside with my big snuggly coat on walking on the crunchy orange fallen leaves. Lastly I just love cuddles on the sofa with my partner with a cover on while watching Netflix and eating some snacks with the occasional gin. 
October outfits | Bright vixen
 For me personally my fashion sense changes quite a lot in October because the temperature drops quite drastically and the days are so much shorter so my wardrobe pretty much changes overnight. I love wearing autumn colours such as orange, greens, red etc and thats where this outfit comes in. I got this outfit pretty all in a second hand shop apart from the skirt and I know I don't look like the most confident person in the world but I feel like a million dollars when I dress up, it boosts me up so much when I wear beautiful clothes.


Top - River Island ( Charity Shop)
Skirt - Lindy Bop
Wedges - Top Shop 

How is everyone this month, any plans?

Ann Summers Lube | Review

ann summers lube review
Hi Darlings!

I never thought I would see the day that I would be reviewing 'lubes' on my blog but you know life can surprise us in many ways. Anyway's Ann Summers has been a favourite place of mine to go for lingerie and other bits for a while now but until now I didn't think about reviewing them but then I thought to myself why the bloody hell not? You only live once and if you want just go for it.

Ann Summers was founded in 1972 and since then has gone from strength to strength with the amounts of shops and products they have. The thing I love most about Ann Summers is the shops are quite welcoming and you can usually find what you are looking for. 

Lubes are something that I thought about in the past but never really got round to buying them.. well that was until a few months ago that is. I got these both which were on a buy one get half price and the offer is still on now. I got Boot Relax and Passion fruit lube which cost me £8 each.
ann summers lube review
Passion Fruit Lube - £8 
I know flavoured lubes maybe to some peoples taste but for me personally they aren't my thing at all, for me personally they taste a little too fake and with this one it felt a little sticky too. I can't say I hated it but it wasn't my favourite I've tried but it will get used. EVENTUALLY LOL. Anyway its good value for money as you get 100ml of product and its non-staining too.

This lube is safe for imitate use also for adult toys and condoms too. It also contains ann summers o blend which helps in my own opinion compared to other brands I have tried in the past.

Even though this is an ok lube, I can't imagine buying this again in the near future but you never know I could change my mind.

Pros
  • Big bottle at 100ml 
  • Does the job 
  • Smells nice 
  • Lovely packaging 
  • Condom Friendly 
Cons
  • Not my favourite taste 

ann summers booty relax review
Booty Relax - £8 
WHY DIDN'T I BUY THIS SOONER? This stuff does exactly what it says on the tin ( well bottle lol) and I am so glad that I bought it. This has been enhanced with ann summers o blend which helps enhance libido and also intensify orgasms etc. This has been specifically designed for the booty as it has cooling and relaxing ingredients. 

This is suitable for the booty and intimate areas and for me personally it works wonders wherever you have it really. Its also suitable for condoms.

I know it sounds daft but I can honestly say I love the smell of this and also the feel of it too; the feel was very silky and very comfortable too.  I would 100% buy this again in the future.

Pros 
  • WORKS
  • Smells gorgeous 
  • Lovely and silky 
  • Long lasting
  • Big bottle 
  • Great packaging 
  • Condom Friendly 



Cons
  • Can we have a bigger bottle please?
