Sunderland Restaurant Week: Safari Supper

Sunderland Restaurant week returns again from Saturday 17th March until Sunday 25th March. I was kindly invited along to sample some of the restaurants taking part this year. It's a great way to try out new restaurants within the area at amazing discounted prices. The prices vary from £5 for local cafes, £10-£15pp for a two and three course set menus.
Itinerary Canapes and cocktails: El Nido Starters: 2 Church Lane Main course: The Engine Room Dessert: The Peacock

El Nido Canapes and cocktails Sunderland restaurant week offer Starter and burrito or 2 tacos for £10 Add a desert or cocktail for £15
El Nido is the newest restaurant to open in Sunderland and is unique within the city centre as it's a Mexican restaurant. There has been so much hype surrounded by this restaurant I was intrigued to go along myself and see if it's re…

High street makeup haul

A couple of weeks ago I went out shopping, these are the makeup items that I bought. I haven't bought makeup in months especially high street makeup. I am really pleased with the items that I did buy and I can't wait to use them.
NYX #GlitterGoals This set includes: Travel size glitter glue Shades Luna/Lune Purple/Violet Pink/Rose
For Christmas I got a NYX Glittergoals set but in a different colour. When I saw this set I knew I 'needed' it as I don't own a purple or a white glitter, plus I am a huge fan of the glitter glue. As it adheres the glitter well, doesn't irritate your eyes and is easy to remove.
NYX glam shadow 19 Wedding cake I am a huge fan of white eyeshadow and the 'quest' to find a white eyeshadow that is really pigmented and bright. This eyeshadow caught my attention as it's a 'true bright white'. I also found the name of the eyeshadow really cute, does anyone else get drawn to a product even more when it has a cute name? Or is th…

Why I'm not a typical English lit student

English and creative writing and just English (which focuses on Literature). I decided to just do English which mainly focuses on literature as people that I spoke to advised me this would be the better option for me as I want to become a secondary school teacher. In this post I will be discussing why I'm not a 'typical' or 'stereotypical'  English literature student. This post is meant to be light hearted and I don't mean to cause offence to anyone so bare that in mind...... Side note: please excuse if my grammar, punctuation isn't the best in this post, it's not a university essay.

I don't read books for 'fun' or 'enjoyment in my spare time When you study English at university this is a major assumption that you do enjoy reading in your spare time, you've heard of all these authors that the lecturers have mentioned and you…
