Experience My Rosacea | My Skin Story

I have red skin, I blush very easily, and I get hot and bothered. I also get spots and have a very oily t-zone. Rosacea is not a skin condition I ever thought I had. I assumed I had sensitive skin and that I simply had to be careful with the products I used. Not the case.

NEW COCKTAIL MENU LAUNCH | SCIENCE BAR NEWCASTLE


Have you ever been to Science Bar in Newcastle? If I'm honest, I hadn't even heard of it until I was invited along to sample Science Bar's new cocktail menu, launching on Thursday 21st April. So not long to wait if you see something you think will tickle your taste buds...

As you can imagine, with the bar being named 'Science', the cocktails are science and science-fiction themed. I unfortunately only had time to stick around for the science-themed drunks. The downfalls of having to rely on public transport to get home!

RIRI by Rihanna | A New Fragrance


I used to be obsessed with Rihanna. Her music and how she dressed, I even has a copycat undercut hairstyle at one point. As her music has changed over the past few years, I've become less of a fan. Even so, when I was asked if I'd like to try a sample of her new fragrance, RiRi by Rihanna, of course I said yes! I love trying out new scents so couldn't wait until this arrived...
