Revolution Highlighter Reloaded in Raise The Bar, is like applying sunshine to your skin.
I’ve never before
a) Used a highlighter which looks like I am so naturally radiant
b) Found one which matches my cool, olive skin properly
c) Found a powder one which blends really well and isn’t drying
This is amazing!
Here I’m standing in front of a big window but on a very gloomy day and I’m not wearing any foundation or concealer JUST THE HIGHLIGHTER (photo makes me seem a little more warm toned than I actually am).
Because it includescool – almost green – tones it reduces the appearance of slight red patches too!
I’m so glad I’ve come across Ask Italian, a nationwide restaurant chain that has wonderful vegetarian options, a gluten-free pizza and pasta menu, plus a vegan menu.
This is their Non-Gluten Verdure pizza, with mushroom, red pepper, black olives, artichoke, mozzarella and basil (£9.95) You can add any extra topping and a spicy tomato dip to your order for around a quid each.
This has to be the best gluten-free base that I’ve ever tasted. It’s thin, floppy but still slightly crispy, like a traditional Italian base. It doesn’t have that thick, flowery texture that gf takeaway bases have.
Hello lovely people! I recently tried Biffs Vegan Burgers and Wingz – Manchester so here’s what I thought…
I ordered the Bourbon BBQ Wingz (Jackfruit with a sugar cane ‘bone’) and simple Cajun Dusted Sweet Potato Fries, with Bacon Jam for dipping. I can just imagine Peter Kay saying “Bacon Jam!? BACON jam!?” lol
A huge portion of tasty fries arrived and the jam tasted uncannily of bacon!
I just wish the Jackfruit had a slightly more substantial texture, wondering if a chunky mushroom might be better/closer?
I refrained from ordering the more elaborate ‘Filthy Fries’ and slaw on the side, as I already had enough for two meals.
I had to share this awesome tie-dye jumper I bought from NikRik’s Workshop on Etsy. It’s a fairly light jumper so it’s perfect for Spring, chilly Summer evenings (when you don’t have a bloke around who will lend you theirs) and Autumn or layering up in Winter.
I love Cyan and light green as I find them to be the most uplifting colours, especially together. You can imagine how chuffed I was that my hair turned out Cyan, rather than the darker blue I aimed for lol
Today I’m sharing e.l.f Hydrating Coconut Mist (£8) with you. It really is saving my skin and my mood on these absolutely roasting days that we are having in England.
It contains hyaluronic acid, coconut oil, Vit E and B5 to hydrate, soften and sooth.
The mist has kept my skin cool around the house and hydrated even though I’ve been sitting in front of a (surprisingly drying) fan a lot of the time. It also soothes my skin which is prone to redness as a result of mild allergies.
Bonus use as a moisturising setting spray
Earlier I moisturised with e.l.f. day moisturiser and applied their matte foundation (necessary in this heat) which made me look quite flat and meh, so I sprayed the Hydrating mist over the top and still I look fresh faced (with my foundation intact) three hours later!

This is the gluten free double BBQ burger (with ‘cheese’ and ‘bacon’ from Wholesome Junkies. It’s got me thinking that burger buns should be replaced with a huge amount of crunchy (massively loaded) fries as standard!
The portion is so generous, this has been my tea and now my dinner. 😛😋
It’s Disability Pride Month Which, I have to admit, I’ve only just discovered! I’m not ‘proud’ to be disabled but I’m certainly not ashamed or awkward about it either. I am proud of how I’ve learned to deal with being Dyspraxic and and having Hypermobilty Syndrome over the past 40 years (with an astounding amount of ignorance and attitudes bordering on ableism from Dr’s).
Here is the awesome super lightweight, fold-up chair (even the back folds down) which I bought for car travel. It’s sparkly electric blue ✨💙✨
To be independent I need to be given an electric wheelchair. Because of my disabilities I have muscle weakness and chronic fatigue, so the GP gave me a self propelled chair which I’m unable to use BECAUSE OF MY DISABILITIES. How’s that for sick irony? Apparently this is ‘a very common mistake if it’s a GP who’s made the referral’ the man told me as he was delivering it and taking it away again.
I’m having another phone consultation with a GP on Tuesday and (after arranging this myself) I’m being properly assessed by a Physio from Social Services Neuro Team soon. I must mention that Manchester and Thameside Social Services have been more understanding, knowledgable, kind and professional over my disabilities in just four months, than most Dr’s have been in four decades!
