Salvos Restaurant Review Leeds


Okay so just writing this post makes me want to eat here again. I've always wanted to eat at Salvos, this restaurant is famously known as one of the best Italian's around so I was very excited to see what it was like, particularly because I am the biggest Italian lover that you will ever meet. Salvos is a family run restaurant, in the middle of Headingley and you'd probably walk past it, but this place is a hidden gem and I really can see why people travel just to eat here...

My First Christmas WishList!

I have a feeling that there are going to be quite a few of these as I'm still not sure what I want for Christmas yet. I can’t believe that it’s basically only a month until Christmas, for me, my birthday is on the 22nd and I always find it really hard to think of things to get for my birthday and Christmas with them being so close together (I better start planning a Birthday wishlist soon). This Christmas list is just a little draft I’ve put together of things that I’d ask for if money was no option, not everything on the list is expensive but I wouldn’t expect to get everything on this list whatsoever. Basically, I've piled together some of the things that I'm lusting over at the moment and in December we will see if they've made it onto my final Christmas wishlist. Please note, I don't expect anyone to buy me all of this. I'd also love you to leave me a comment and let me know what you're lusting over this Christmas too!

Seventeen Phwoarr Paint Review VS Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In Place High Coverage Cover Concealer Review



I've gone from having no good concealers to having two very impressive ones in my life. I bought Seventeen's Phwoarr Paint from Boots after reading numerous reviews about it and I was really excited to review it for you all. When it comes to Estee Lauder, I was lucky enough to receive their newest concealer to try. We all know that they're the top of the game when it comes to beauty, so I had very high expectations. The birth of their Double Wear Stay-In Place High Coverage Concealer was much celebrated at EmTalks HQ (my bedroom). So how did this high street concealer compare to the long awaited designer special? Read on to find out...

Pho Food Review Launch Party: Trinity Kitchen

When an invite landed in my inbox to the launch party of a quirky new Vietnamese restaurant right on my door step, I knew that I had to attend. Pho has finally landed in Leeds, after much success in London. Trinity Kitchen recently opened in the new Trinity Leeds shopping centre and this is just one of the incredible street food vendors inside. It's time to make your stomach rumble...

German Christmas Market Leeds: Christmas Kindelmarkt

Everything is happening so quickly, Summer is over and Autumn really is in full swing, this means that it's time for the Christmas markets to open across the country, much to my delight. I am incredibly obsessed with anything to do with Christmas and seem to hibernate at the Christmas markets throughout November. This year, they've come round really quick (one month until Christmas, uh what?!) Here is my first trip to the German market of the year, first up, it's Leeds' German Christmas Market...

L'Oreal Nude Magique Eau De Teint Foundation Review


I feel like the high street just keeps evolving when it comes to beauty, they're really putting designer/high end brands through their paces at the moment and the likes of Armani and Nars are probably quaking in their boots knowing that L'Oreal, Rimmel and more are delivering just as good products, for half the price. Granted, some people prefer the looks of designer brands in their make up bags (I'm guilty of being a Burberry make up obsessive), but once in a while, everyone loves to find a high street favourite right? We've all been ridiculously impressed or ridiculously unimpressed by a product from the high street, likewise with designer products too. I like to mix my reviews up and give you high end reviews and high street because obviously not everyone can afford to pay £35.00 for a foundation but for those who don't mind paying for a foundation, I know that I've always been someone who's spent all my money on 'good' foundations because I used to think that a high price tag equalled a good product, I am going to prove you wrong today. This new number from L'Oreal actually promises a lot, it's completely new to the beauty market and boy is it exciting (I squealed a little bit when I received it). Here is my review of L'Oreal's new Nude Magique Eau De Teint Foundation (what a mouthful)...

Luxury, Affordable Flowers Through Your Letterbox from Bloom&Wild

I've always loved hearing about new, exciting businesses or products so when Bloom & Wild contacted me, I instantly knew that I wanted to tell the world about them. It's not often that a company excites me or appeals to me this much, but as soon as I was told about Bloom & Wild I instantly knew that they were the brand for me. I can't wait to tell you about this exciting new company...

Miller And Carter Restaurant Review Leeds


Date nights are my favourite kind of nights, whether it's a trip to the cinema, a walk in the park or a Nandos; it's nice to just get out and do something different. For me, it really is the little things that count, take me to a pet shop to stroke a bunny rabbit and I'll tell everyone that it was the best date ever (who doesn't love bunny rabbits?!) I really am quite easily pleased when it comes to dates. Restaurants however, I'm not that easy to please. I'm a bit (a lot) of a food connoisseur (it runs in the family as my brother is exactly the same) I've always loved advising people when it comes to the finest eateries in town. With me being such a foodie, it's usually up to me to choose the restaurant on date night however, on this occasion I let go of the reins and let my plus 1 choose Miller and Carter as our Sunday night date night and he didn't do too badly after all...
