Monkey Forest, Clue HQ + The Cheltenham Festival!

monkey forest

Hey guys!

If you follow my social media, you would have seen over the past few weeks I have been experiencing a lot of new things so today I am going to talk about the main three.

Firstly Trentham Monkey Forest. I was privileged to be given complimentary tickets for my boyfriend and I to experience the monkey forest and let me tell you, it was unreal! It is nothing like a safari park where the animals are caged, instead the animals are free to roam thousands of metres of land and enjoy the freedom of their natural habitat amongst the forest. Being able to see them walk around you, right next to you even, was incredible. We both thoroughly enjoyed every second of it and I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves animals and nature.

The second place is Clue HQ Birmingham. Again, I was lucky enough to receive complimentary tickets for my boyfriend and I’s date night and let me tell you, it was the best date night I could have asked for. It was challenging, mentally and physically, it was entertaining and honestly I loved every single second I was in there. As discussed with the team I am unable to go into great detail regarding the whole game we played, however I can say we played their game called Hellevator and it was very hard but ridiculously fun. We didn’t manage to escape, but we are definitely going to visit again to try again to make our way out. There are different games with different difficulty levels throughout so everybody can take part from beginners to pros, it’s enjoyable for everyone. If you’re looking for something fun to do, for groups, couples, work groups or families it is definitely something I would highly recommend and to top it off, everybody involved gets a free HD photo taken at the end to remember the experience by and to me that is so so important to make memories and have the photo to remember it.

The third and final experience was the Cheltenham Festival. If you read my previous post you’ll have seen how much I thoroughly love horse racing and I was lucky enough this year to experience the festival twice, the first day and the last day. Both days were absolutely incredible and I loved every second. A sell out crowd of 70,000 people and I can’t even describe how unreal the atmosphere was. I was lucky enough to walk away winning money instead of losing. Including Native River winning the Gold Cup, as tipped by jockey Richard Johnson exclusively on my website back in October. I was so proud of Native River and Richard, both of whom I have supported for a very very long time and I am so happy for the whole team. Overall I had an amazing experience and if you like horse racing I would say it is definitely something you need to experience, even if you don’t like horse racing I think you should still experience it all. So many people say horse racing is cruel but when you experience the Cheltenham Festival where millions of pounds worth of horses, training and work goes into, you would see just how well looked after the horses are and how well they are treated and you’d see that there is no animal cruelty in horse racing whatsoever. I was so happy experiencing the festival and I cannot wait until next years!

Overall I’ve been having an incredible few weeks and I have so much more planned which I am super excited for. Today I finished work for 11 days and now I have nearly 2 weeks full of plans including a musical, Sam Smith in concert, Alton Towers, Safari Park and a trip to visit the Shakespeare houses, all of which I’m super excited for! I have some pretty exciting collaborations coming up also so I cannot wait for those.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post and I’ll see you all in my next one!

EXCLUSIVE: Bespoke VIP Day with Manchester United

MAN U

Hey guys!

So as some of you may have seen on my social media, this week I got to experience something that was honestly the best day ever. Just over two months ago I received a lovely email, followed by a phone call from Jason, a member of the VIP team at Manchester United Football Club. He invited me, along with 3 guests to go to Old Trafford and enjoy a day with Jason himself, experiencing their VIP package, as massive Manchester United fans, of course I had to say yes. When Wednesday the 19th of July came around, it was finally time to travel up to Manchester and experience this once in a lifetime opportunity.

We arrived at the stadium just before 12pm, we were greeted by a member of the Museum’s VIP Team, Jason who was already in the museum and tour entrance waiting for our arrival. He greeted us and gave us our passes, then took us straight up to the Red Cafe, where we were given menu’s and could choose any food and drink that we would like. I would like to mention also, that every single member of staff we encountered was so lovely, from the car park attendants to the restaurant staff, to the museum staff, to the stewards and security and of course Jason, I couldn’t fault any of them, they all made us feel super welcome and relaxed whilst there.

In our group was my friend Reiss, my mom, my dad and myself, collectively we don’t eat a large lunch, it’s just not something we do, so we decided we would all have a dessert and a drink each. Reiss and I had a salted caramel brownie with ice cream and my mom and dad had an ice cream sundae, both were presented lovely as well as tasting absolutely unreal! The Red Cafe update their menu every 12 months or so to make sure that they are only serving food and drinks that their fans would like. We didn’t personally have a meal, however there were many families, couples and individuals who did around us and I can say that the portions were enough to fill you up and I didn’t see anyone waste any of it, so it must have been lovely!

IMG_8255  IMG_8254

Now onto the main event.. The museum and tour. As a VIP you get a guided tour around the museum instead of wondering around by yourself. When entering the museum the first thing you see is the English Football League Cup on a table with a backdrop, where you can have your photos taken with the cup and have them printed there and then for a souvenir to take home with you. Jason proceeded to tell us that Jose Mourinho had told the club he was taking the Europa League trophy on tour with the team to America an the Football Association had taken the Charity Shield back as the next game for it will be played soon, but normally any trophies the first team had won during that season would be there available to take photos with. 

IMG_8423  IMG_8425
Photos above are photos of a photo so therefore are not the best quality so apologies for that.

After taking the photos we went into the first room which was absolutely full of trophies, what we didn’t know until Jason told us was that the whole room was full of trophies that the youth teams had won, none of the trophies were what the first team had won, which absolutely blew me away. The talent for the club is, of course, incredible, but that room really showed that the talent starts right at the beginning as children and they just grow to produce a strong first team, Marcus Rashford is a prime example of this within the club.

During the tour around the museum Jason told us all about different memorabilia and stories behind them. He also told us a few interesting facts, such as the museum was first opened in 1986, however Pele opened the current museum in 1998 and it is now one of the biggest football museums in the world with over 350,000 visitors each year! He also told us Sir Alex Ferguson was the manager of the club for 26 years and in that time he won 38 trophies, which is an absolute unbelievable achievement.

Being able to experience the museum alongside someone who knew background stories of certain things, knew the players included and knew more history than any of us was amazing. We not only got to see everything on show, we also got told stories about it and it was all that little bit more special. You can attend the museum as and when you please however you would be walking around by yourself, you can buy commentary which is available in numerous different languages however, for me, that personal touch of having a personal tour guide for just myself and my guests made it feel like an even more intimate and special occasion. 

After the full tour of the museum, which in itself was amazing, we were then onto part two of the day… The stadium tour! We were taken up into the stands first, where Jason proceeded to tell us that they were currently having work done to allow more access for wheelchair users, they have added 350 spaces which are being finished currently before the new season, however these seats will be multi-purpose, they can be used for either wheelchairs or as regular seats. If all 350 spaces are used for wheelchairs the stadium is only losing 1,000 seats, which in reality is amazing. I think for a club like Manchester United to take that step and  think about other fans and not the money of those extra 1,000 seats is something very admirable.IMG_8421

When we were in the stands, there were 3 grounds men working on the pitch to make sure it is in the best possible condition for the beginning of the season which is fast approaching! The grounds men told us there are 24 sprinklers across the pitch to keep it healthy, as well as underground heating and water recycling, all of these combined have meant that the club have won best ground, best staff, best pitch etc numerous times, looking at the pitch and the hard work done in the time we were there shows exactly why they have won so many awards.

We were then taken down to the changing rooms, where we were allowed in the home and away dressing rooms, on our own meaning we got perfect shots of the room and with any shirts we wanted photos with and overall it was something you wouldn’t ever imagine you could experience.

IMG_8264

IMG_8267

Once we had taken all of our photos and just enjoyed the moment of being in the changing rooms amongst some incredible players playing shirts we were taken down the new tunnel and down onto pitch side.

IMG_8271  IMG_8275

The view of Old Trafford as you come out of that tunnel is unreal, so I can’t imagine just how special it would be if that ground was full of fans chanting, singing and cheering for you.

IMG_8276

Next on the tour was the ‘dug outs’ that aren’t actually dug out, they’re actually raised! We were told these were raised due to Sir Alex Ferguson wanting them raised, which is another interesting fact we were given. We had the honour of being able to sit in the seats and enjoy the moment, again exclusively just our group and nobody else. 

IMG_8277

After being shown around the whole of the ground, we were then taken onto the box corridor, we saw so many different boxes, all of which were gorgeous, full of food, drinks, TV’s and honestly just gorgeous with an unreal view of the pitch.

IMG_8296

Honestly this is the moment I was absolutely blown away, we got taken to the one and the only Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s box! It may not seem special, but to people who are massive Manchester United fans, this was a moment you could only dream of. Being taken into this box and being able to sit down and just enjoy the luxury of this area, something I could only dream of being able to do.

IMG_8291

Whilst in Inbrahimovic’s box, Jason brought out a massive box, we honestly had no idea that he was going to do this at all. In the box was absolutely loads of old playing shirts and playing football boots that had been worn and the players gave to the club for the fans to experience, which was a lovely gesture. The box included Rio Ferdinand’s boots, Nemanja Vidic’s boots, David De Gea’s gloves and the one and only David Beckham’s shirt as well as so so much more. 

IMG_8305 IMG_8302  IMG_8301

Not only were we able to look and take photos but Jason allowed us to try anything on that we wanted to. So I got to try on the shirt that David Beckham had previously worn when he was at the club and to me, that just blew my mind. Being a Manchester United fan and being able to wear the David Beckham’s worn shirt was just honestly unreal, I was completely speechless, I really was. That was something I could only dream of happening, so being surprised with that was the best feeling possible for all of us there.

IMG_8328  IMG_8339

Overall, the whole day was something I could only of imagined being able to experience, whether you are a Manchester United fan or not, I know you would absolutely love seeing the behind the scenes of the club and the hidden stories you might not know of. As the biggest football club in the world, you can honestly see why once you get there. It’s a club that is all about their fans, their family, not the money. Yes, don’t get me wrong, it is a business and they do make a lot of money, but their staff are so welcoming, so lovely and make you feel so comfortable, all they care about it allowing those who visit to leave with a smile on their face, being able to make every individuals visit something special and a day they won’t every forget. I for one, had the best day ever and I will never ever forget being able to experience an exclusive tour like that. Honestly if you have the opportunity to go on a tour of Old Trafford, I would definitely recommend it, it is a special day and I know you wouldn’t be disappointed.

A few quick thank you’s just before I finish. Firstly thank you to Manchester United as a whole, being able to experience the behind the scenes of your club, the untold stories, the hard work done by the staff that nobody gets to see, I not only enjoyed the experience, but I also learnt a lot about how much it takes to create a football pitch up to Premier League standard and how much hard work goes into creating the best possible stadium ready for the fans. It was a real eye-opener into a massive establishment and for that I am grateful. Also a massive thank you to all of the staff,  I really can’t say it enough, every single person you spoke to was lovely and made the day special by welcoming you and making you feel comfortable in their company. And of course, the biggest thank you has to go to Jason. Jason was the loveliest person ever, from the very first email he sent me, to saying our goodbyes when we were leaving he was just amazing. He knew so much about the club, the history, the memorabilia, the players, the behind the scenes, honestly what he didn’t know, wasn’t worth knowing. Thank you for arranging the day for us and making it the most special, unforgettable day possible for all of us involved.

IMG_8334

Also, just a little side note: This was a taster of their VIP experience. If you were to purchase this experience you can have so many extras added. You will be there in the evening after everybody else has left, so we were in our separate tour however there were other public tours taking place at the same time, if you were on this experience you would be there completely on your own with the staff with a bottle of champagne and food also. You would also have the opportunity to meet a player, past or present as well as the additional option of a skills session on the astro-turf so each experience is personally catered to you and your group and whatever you would love and enjoy the most. For me, this taster was unreal and anyone who experiences the full day would have the best time, honestly an unforgettable experience that I think everyone needs to have the chance to do and see.

Father’s Day 2017: Snapfish

cropped-newsletter-header-2.jpg

Hey Guys!

If you follow me on social media you will have seen my grandad was took into hospital earlier in the week meaning this post is going up 3 days late which I am so so sorry for, however it is here now as promised!

Father’s day is just around the corner and I always find it so hard to buy my dad a present, I don’t know what it is but I find it so hard to buy presents for the males in my life, is it just me or is it so much harder to find something they will like? So when I looked on Snapfish and I seen a personalised travel mug I honestly fell in love!

Personally, I have never seen a personalised travel mug anywhere before, this was a first. So of course I had to order it for my dad. My dad is a religious tea drinker, if you see him at any point during the day he will have a cup of tea with him, regardless of where he is or who he’s with or the time of day. So when I seen it I knew it would be the perfect gift for him.

When it arrived, I fell in love! I almost kept it for myself. It looked so much nicer in person than on the app. On the app it looked gorgeous but once it arrived, the photo really doesn’t do it justice. It is such good quality and for the price of just £15.99 I was shocked at just how good it really is. For some people £15.99 for a travel mug may sound expensive, but for me it is really cheap, especially as most places charge a lot more than that for any item that is being personalised, so for me this is a very good price for a very good, very high quality product and I highly recommend it.

For me, I love Snapfish, they have an app which is easy to use, they have incredible offers on weekly, they ship their products fast and their customer service team are all lovely. You also get 50 FREE prints per month, all you have to pay is delivery, which is incredible. 

If you’re still looking for the perfect Father’s Day gift, give their app a download and check them out because honestly I fell in love with all of their products and if I could I would’ve ordered one of everything! I hope this post have gave you some inspiration for a gift.

I will see you in my next post!

Review/First Impression: Village Hotel & Spa Dudley

cropped-newsletter-header-2.jpg

Hey guys!

So on Friday evening I had the opportunity to spend the night at Village Hotel and Spa Dudley, so today’s post is a first impressions/review kind of post all about my experience.

My boyfriend and I have never been to a spa so when we were given this opportunity of course we snapped it up! I finished work at 6:30pm and we headed straight over, arriving around 7:15. When we arrived, the car park was very full, however it was so big there was still plenty of space to park, which is always a positive when visiting a hotel. We went into the hotel, first impressions were very busy, very modern and very organised. After entering, almost immediately a member of staff came over, introduced herself and helped us to get checked in. Once checked in, she gave us our key card and explained to us where our room was and how to get there via a lift or stairs. She explained she would be around the reception area until 10pm so if we needed anything at all pop down and see her and she’ll help us, which I thought was lovely of her to say, very polite also. She also explained about an event taking place that evening, as well as if we were planning to eat the times that their pub and restaurant closed. Overall, she was very informative and helpful, but not too overwhelming, like you find in some hotels.

We made our way up to our room, 217 which was on the second floor. There were plenty of signs in the lift as well as around the hotel explaining how to get to each room, which is very helpful in a hotel of that size. When we entered our room, my first impression honestly was ‘wow’. It was gorgeous. It was modern, it was colourful, the bed was so comfortable, we had a huge flat screen TV with Sky and the bathroom was absolutely gorgeous. (I will insert pictures below). Overall I was super impressed. An added bonus for my boyfriend was the fact he could see his car from the window, so he loved that. The only slightly negative was the standing fan we had had wobbly legs, but other than that I honestly couldn’t fault a single thing.

IMG_7099.JPG IMG_7100.JPG IMG_7101.JPG

A nice added bonus, that was definitely not expected was this from Simon, the general manager:

IMG_7098

One thing I thought was honestly incredible about this hotel was the fact we didn’t arrive until 7:15 but the pool, sauna, steam room, spa, gym, everything was still open until 10pm, which for me, after a hard day at work was like heaven! Most hotels have set times, like 10-6 in the pool or whatever, but Village had their facilities open until 10pm so no matter what time you arrived you could go to relax. I would say by 7:30 we were down in the pool relaxing, honestly no better way to start a bank holiday weekend!After spending just over an hour in their pool, sauna and steam room, we made our way back to our rooms. Again, all of the staff downstairs were lovely, they showed us where everything was and were very helpful.

After probably the best nights sleep in a while, we made our way downstairs for breakfast. Breakfast is served between 7am and 10am, so whether you’re an early riser or a late starter you can go and have breakfast. When we got into the breakfast room, a member of staff, again, almost immediately came over to us. He asked us if we would like a window table or not, in which we accepted, again, so my boyfriend could see his car. We were lead over to our table and the member of staff asked us if we had been before, in which we responded with no, so he then explained where everything was for us, as well as asking if we would like tea or coffee. 

In all honesty, this was the best breakfast I have ever seen in a hotel. It was basically a help yourself buffet, all of your hot foods, such as bacon, sausage, variety of eggs, tomatoes, etc were lay out in a heated buffet thing (not sure of the name?) so you could help yourself. Then there was a table of bread, toast and pastries. Then another table of cereal and juices. Overall there was so much choice and variety. The only slight negative for me, was the toasting machine was quite slow and the bread needed to go through it a few times to be toasted, so it took a little while of standing there before it was done and you could go and eat. Other than that I couldn’t fault the breakfast. Members of staff were constantly around for you, making sure everything was okay and bringing you anything you needed.

Overall, I had the best time. It was the first time experiencing Village Hotels and it definitely didn’t disappoint. It was one of the best experiences I’ve had in a hotel, the staff were constantly there ready to help you and no matter how busy they were, there was always plenty of staff around to speak to if needed. I recommend Village Hotel and Spa Dudley to anyone, I really do. The whole experience was amazing.

Thank you for reading and once again, thank you Simon and the whole team for welcoming us and allowing us to experience your incredible hotel.

Daytona Karting

cropped-newsletter-header-2.jpg

Hey guys!

If you have been following me for a while, you’ll know I love to go to new places and try new things. My boyfriend and pretty much all of our friends absolutely love go karting, however it is something I personally have never tried, if anything I’ve always been too scared to try it. However I decided after watching my boyfriend I would finally go for it and do it.

So today’s post is the much awaited Daytona Karting post! I know, I know, I’m sorry it’s being uploaded a little later than I would have liked, but I have been so busy with work this week, but I have finally had the time to get it up, so enjoy!

Jim over at Daytona Karting Tamworth was lovely enough to allow my friends and I to experience their full circuit exclusively for us, so I felt at ease knowing it would just be our friends and not total strangers on the track with us.

When the day arrived, the weather was horrible. Non-stop rain the whole journey there, so I was absolutely petrified, not only was it my first time karting but now I was going to have to do it in the rain and everybody was sure to tell me just how slippy the karts are in the rain, so that was nice of them! 

When we arrived it was all pretty straight forward, we went up to the front desk where the staff were ready straight away to book us in and get our suits ready. After ensuring the whole group had completed our waivers, they gave us our suits and gloves and showed us to the dressing room where we could access lockers and get ready. The suits were as comfortable as expected, they came in various sizes so they fitted everyone, the staff were lovely enough to check their back rooms to find wet suits that were better sized for us as most of the mediums and larges had been taken and used already.

Once we were all ready, we were taken upstairs to the safety briefing room. We watched the video, which wasn’t too long, like some I have been told about, it told us all we needed to know without being too long. When the video ended, a member of staff came back into the room and explained anything people did not understand as well as answering any questions. 

We were then taken downstairs and outside into the pits where our karts were already on and ready to go. We were given our kart numbers and settled in. The staff were very thorough in ensuring we were all comfortable and safe in our karts, which I thought was really good. I definitely felt safe from the get go. Once we were all set, it was time to go.

Once again, the nerves hit me, I was petrified! But once I pulled out onto the circuit and started driving I absolutely loved it! In our group of friends we have numerous, you could say, ‘professional’ go kart drivers, so I knew I wouldn’t win or anything like that but it was honestly so much fun. 

The first time out on the circuit it was a timed race I suppose, so it was to determined where on the grid we would all start during the proper race. It was around 10/15 minutes of driving as quickly as we could and setting ourselves times. It was slippy yes, but it was so much fun! I think we all crashed or spun out at some point but it was hilarious and so fun.

Once our first part was over we were directed onto the grid, it was race time! The race started and as expected the ‘professionals’ were miles ahead of everybody, but it didn’t stop any of us having fun. From first place, to last place we all had so much fun! Again, everybody was crashing and spinning out, but there were so many members of staff out spread across the circuit we were all incredibly safe. As soon as you crashed or spun out or anything at all, a member of staff was there to ensure you were okay and nobody hit you or hurt you or anything at all.

After the race had finished we were all taken inside where a member of staff greeted us with trophies. The top three, Haz, Dan and Mat were given trophies for placing in the top three, then a professional photo was taken.

Then a group photo was taken for us to keep.

Overall, the staff were all lovely, helpful and made sure your safety was always first. The circuit itself was challenging but so much fun. This was my first experience of go karting but it definitely won’t be my last. I absolutely loved every second and I am so grateful to Daytona for their incredible hospitality. I had the best possible experience for my first time karting and I can’t wait to go again!

Again, thank you to Jim and the Daytona Tamworth team. If you love karting or fancy trying it out for the first time like I did, do check them out. I honestly could not recommend them enough.

See you in my next post!

Review: The Full Monty Theatre Show

Hey Lovelies!

Today’s post is a review of The Full Monty theatre show. If you didn’t know the show is currently on tour playing shows all across the UK and this afternoon I was lucky enough to go and see the matinee show. I’ve never been to a matinee show but I always assumed not as much effort went into them however I was totally wrong. I was second row from the front in the stalls and honestly I had the best couple of hours. 

The show obviously has a lot of humour in it, which was expected but beneath all of that it targets some sensitive issues that happen to people every single day. Such as body image, homosexuality, unemployment, depression, sexual equality and court proceedings where a child is involved. It includes a lot of heartfelt sensitive issues and they are included in a careful way where nobody can be offended but you might be able to relate to what they are going through.

I think the creators, writers, producers and everybody involved did an incredible job. They included the light hearted parts and humorous parts but they also included those scenes where the sensitive issues are brought up. I think, for me, the best scene was of course the scene in the ‘job club’ where the music is playing and they start dancing in the queue. I think if that scene wasn’t included it just wouldn’t be the same. I also want to say fair play to all of the actors for stripping right down to the bare bottom. I honestly think the whole performance was incredible and I was totally wrong about the fact that matinee shows being different, they are just as good as evening shows! 

If you get the chance to see the show then I really do recommend you do. If you follow me and have been you will know I go to a lot of shows but this has to be one of the best ones. I have always said The Bodyguard is the best show I’ve seen at the theatre but this was definitely very close if not slightly better. 

All of the performers were incredible but my stand out performers were of course Gary Lucy and Chris Fountain. I’ve always had a soft spot for them, Gary since Footballers Wives and Chris since Hollyoaks so being able to see them both on stage was amazing. I have loved the performance and I think everybody should see it if you get the chance!

I hope you’ve enjoyed this review and I will see you in my next post!

Technic Makeup

cropped-newsletter-header-2.jpg

Hey Lovelies!

When I first started blogging I never imagined brands would want to work with me, however I have been so incredibly lucky to work with some incredible brands and I’m so grateful for the opportunities I have been given. Today I bring to you Technic Makeup! I absolutely love this brand. They do incredible makeup for super good prices so when they asked me to partner with them for a few posts I had to snap up the opportunity! So today I bring you a post about all of the products I have been lucky enough to be sent. Today’s post is a haul and first impressions, I will also be doing a full review post once I have used the products a couple of times.

img_9998

So the first thing I was sent was this gorgeous highlighter. One picture is without the flash, the other with the flash.

IMG_9993.JPG IMG_9994.JPG

When I received this I was so happy, it is such a gorgeous colour and I cannot wait to use it! I really hope this lives up to my expectations because I have heard so many incredible things.

The next product is this blush strobe kit.

  img_9992 img_9991

All four of these colours look so nice so I honestly can’t wait to use it!

The next product is the bronze strobe kit.

img_9985 img_9986

If I’m honest I am a little sceptical of this product as I prefer a matte bronzer however I am willing to give it a try and see if I like it.

The next product is this Mega Sultry 2 eyeshadow palette.

img_9980 img_9981

This palette is a mixture of matte and shimmery colours and they are all incredibly gorgeous. This is the sort of palette I would normally go for so I definitely can’t wait to try it out. Really really hoping it is pigmented because if it is it may well become my favourite palette!

The next product I am ridiculously excited to have been given and it is the colour fix cream corrector palette.

img_9988 img_9987

I have heard so many incredible things about this palette so when I got sent it I was super excited! I really can’t wait to try it out and see if it is as good as everybody has been saying it is.

The next two products are two brushes. A Pro Blending Brush and a Pro Face Brush.

img_9996 img_9997

These brushes are so soft, they don’t lose hairs when you pull on them which is what some cheaper brushes do, so I can’t wait to try them out.

The next product I have received is this Soft Focus Transparent Loose Powder.

img_9982

I love a good translucent powder so hopefully this is a good one to add to my collection.

The next product is this Superfine Matte Blusher.

img_9989  img_9990

It looks like two really nice colours, I don’t actually own a matte powder blush only a liquid matte blush to I can’t wait to try it out.

The next product is lipstick with added vitamin E.

img_9995

I very rarely wear red lipstick unless I am on a night out so I can’t wait to actually try this out and see if I can make it work.

The final product I received is this Brow Tamer Brow Kit.

I have been using the same brow kit for probably 18 months or so, so I am set in my ways a little bit. However I am willing to try this brow kit because who knows, it could become my favourite! You can never try out too many brow kits!

I am super excited to try all of these products as I absolutely love the Technic Mega Mattes palette so hopefully they’re all just as incredible as that palette.

I want to take this time to say a massive thank you to the guys over at Technic for being so lovely and sending me these products to try. I definitely recommend their brand their products if you’re looking for cheaper makeup that is good.
