As my regular readers will know, I'm an Antipodes fan - after being recommended their day and night creams, which have been just wonderful, I started to explore the range further.
I was very excited to try out the Antipodes Worship Superfruit Antioxidant Serum - I recently changed my whole skincare routine to include serum on a daily basis as it helps your moisturiser absorb into skin better. Plus, this serum sounded delicious! I think Antipodes products are scented to perfection - the smell isn't overpowering but there's always a hint of active ingredient in it.

The Antipodes Worship Superfruit Antioxidant Serum is scientifically shown to inhibit oxidative stress in-vitro by up to 90% which helps keep skin looking youthful and protects against free radical damage. This superfruit concoction is made up of boysenberry, blackcurrant, kiwifruit and revolutionary antioxidant Vinanza Grape® from grape seeds and all of these are extracted using only pure water for high natural bioactivity and no chemical residue. This skin booster also has shots of coffee berry, açaí and the essential fatty acid alpha lipoic acid (ALA).

I was surprised by the colour of the serum - it's a chestnut brown colour when it comes out of its bottle. Not that there's anything wrong with it, I'm just used to serums being clear! It's very easy to spread over skin - and absorbs super fast, which makes it the perfect base for your moisturiser. I wasn't wrong - Worship Superfruit Antioxidant Serum smells lovely! Kind of sweet and musky.

I have been using Antipodes Worship Superfruit Antioxidant Serum for about two weeks now and it sets the perfect base for my daily "face". It helps moisturiser sink in without leaving any residue which I find gets in the way of makeup. My skin feels soft and comfortable - it usually goes through a horrible transition when the weather changes so I need to try and get it to behave as much as possible.

There's only positives that I can say about this serum - Antipodes, you have won me over again! Although you may look at the price and think it's a little high, you only need a teeny bit of product to use daily so it will actually last you quite a fair amount of time. The benefits of the product being all natural and cruelty free is just a huge bonus on top of a great result.

Banksy's Dismaland, Weston-super-Mare

During Bank Holiday weekend, we indulged in a family trip to see Banksy's Dismaland. All four of us appreciate his work, and I even based my graphic design uni project around his graffiti to portray my feelings regarding animal cruelty. I did well, in case you're wondering. My brother is 15, so naturally he is interested in all things anarchy, but also he's got a great eye and talent in creative subjects.
Dismaland is open until the end of September on the Weston-super-Mare pier and tickets are best obtained online when they go on sale - be wary they go super quick. You can also try and get a ticket on the door but they are not guaranteed and you'll have to queue amongst hundreds of others.

The miniature town by Jimmy Cauty which I can only describe as post apocalyptic with police and forensics trawling every inch of the ground and riots happening here, there and everywhere, is a truly spectacular scene - so much detail went into producing this scene and it was amongst one of our favourites in the park.

The experience of Dismaland begins at the beginning where you are greeted by dismal security officers who tell you not to do anything, not even smile and you enter a world which I'm not even going to lie about - I can see being our near future. Ice cream vans burnt to the ground, tiny immigrant boats being chased by tiny police boats, children applying for pocket money loans. It actually makes you think, a lot. Ariel is sat on her rock in the middle of the lake, but her image is distorted just like how so many other girls' image of themselves. 

Cinderella crash was by far the busiest attraction with a line of people queing up to see her around half of the park. A beautiful piece because of the eery sense it leaves you with - she's crashed, and instead of helping her or cleaning up the mess she's surrounded by photographers who want to document the spectacle. I think it's clear to see that the artist focussed on Princess D's death as inspiration for this piece. 

There is also an at gallery which features beautiful and thought provoking paintings, prints and sculptures. I just love Mickey Mouse with a snake as his bottom half - to me it speaks of something so cute and childish like the icon of Disneyland, but underneath it all lies something sinister and dangerous. I also obsessed over Scott Hove's Lion Teeth wall mounts which were displayed in an eerie 'Alice in Wonderland' themed tent. If I could afford one, that would be gracing the most visible spot in my house - the pieces are beautiful. 

Throughout your time in the park, you'll hear the saddest island music which is occasionally interrupted by demoralising messages coming from a child's mouth. The fact it rained the whole time we were there just added to the atmosphere, funnily enough as soon as we left the park it suddenly became scorching hot with plenty of sunshine. 

It's worth going to Dismaland during the time it's open - see inspiring art, get creeped out by Damien Hirsts pickled unicorn, and just have a think. Have a think about the issues which cropped up in the last few years and imagine where as a society we are going to end up very soon. I wasn't shocked by anything that I saw in the exhibition because I've seen it all in the news before.

REN Rosa Centifolia Express Make-Up Remover review, FashionFake, beauty bloggers

REN is a fantastic skincare brand - I absolutely love their products and have never had anything bad to say about what I have used. The results are always as promised, and this makeup remover is no different.
REN Rosa Centifolia Express Makeup Remover is from a range of gentle but effective cleansers which are based totally on a unique natural rose extract complex which tones your skin, at the same time making it soft and smooth. It soothes your skin whilst effectively cleansing which is hard to find.
The mix of Rice Bran oils and flower water is a super gentle, but tough cleanser which removes even waterproof mascara. It's excellent for those suffering from dry and dehydrates pores or who want to reduce their pore size.

I bought this cleanser because I needed a gentle solution to remove eye makeup and I knew REN wouldn't let me down. Sometimes using other cleansers my eyes tend to sting or feel uncomfortable so I was looking for something that will remove mascara but be kind to my eyes too. I have been using this cleanser for a week now and it's absolutely fantastic - it feel super soft on my skin, gets rid of all makeup, and leaves my skin feeling hydrated and moisturised.
I also love the handy pump it has - pumps do the best job of getting ALL of the product out of the tube without any mess of hassle!

I give this product a 10/10 and I'm absolutely hooked - I don't mind spending £14 on a cleanser that gets on so well with my skin and acts exactly as promised. The REN Rosa Centifolia Express Make-Up Remover is my absolute skin saviour when it comes to cleansing!

featuring Nicole Coltman
Salisbury Cathedral

Last weekend I met up with my friend and fellow blogger Nicole (check out her blog!) in Salisbury for a day of catching up and blog talk. It's really nice to see my bloggers friends as we can all relate to 'blogger problems' and give each other ideas on how to develop further. Of course, we also used the opportunity and the beautiful location of Salisbury Cathedral to snap some photos! 

I absolutely loved Nicole's boots and she told me about this website called Shoeaholics where you can buy designer shoes for bargain prices! Check it out because I have a wishlist which is going to ruin me on pay day... With brands like Michael Kors and Kurt Geiger, this is a website everyone should know about. 

I wore my new outfit from H&M - I fell in love with the printed maroon trousers and the high neck top, it feels very retro worn with flats! The colour is perfect for Autumn and mixed prints bring life into an otherwise standard outfit. 
I am now getting really excited about Autumn fashion - I forgot how fun layering is. That's probably my favourite trend but can be quite difficult to get right as the items have to match in one way or another. Of course, I'm not so excited about all the rain and wind we're having now that Autumn is on our doorstep - maybe one last weekend of sunshine, please?

Restaurant Review: Wildwood, Salisbury

Last weekend I met up with Nicole Coltman for a catch up on blogging, life and food! We went to Wildwood in Salisbury – a restaurant that has a delicious menu full of burgers, pizza, grills and traditional grub. I haven’t been to Salisbury in ages but it’s actually a really great place to spend the day and grab some lunch or dinner.

I like the setting of Wildwood – it has an upmarket bistro feel but is family friendly, especially on Sundays. Hosted over two floors, you can enjoy lunch or dinner with a friend, or bring your family/friends for a get together.

To start with I had seared scallops from the specials board which came with lemon and crushed fried croutons – they were lovely, however I thought the portion was quite small, because the scallops were standard size unlike king scallops which fill you up if you eat 3. Nicole had the calamari with Cajun mayonnaise and I stole a couple from her plate – they were delicious! I love starters – I genuinely get upset when people choose desserts over starters because I think that those little nibbles are so tasty! Although, if there is salted caramel on the menu I am easily swayed.

For my main I chose the wild mushroom and truffle oil pizza because I absolutely MUST have mushrooms on my pizza – it’s just my thing! Plus I love truffle oil which made this pizza perfect for me. The pizza is standard size, I asked our waitress and she said that if I don’t finish the pizza she will put it in a takeaway box for me – spoiler alert, I finished the whole pizza. It was so yummy especially with a drop of chilli oil! There was just the perfect amount of cheese and toping and the cheese was stringy when you pulled the pizza apart… Delish!
Nicole had a classic cheeseburger, which came with relish and skinny fries – it looked like an absolute taste fest!

I really enjoyed our meal at Wildwood in Salisbury – it’s a chain restaurant so have a Google and see if you have one near you as I highly recommend it for a casual meal out!

Supermarket fashion brands vs the highstreet

4 comments
Supermarket fashion brands, FashionFake, fashion bloggers

A couple of weeks ago in the office, three of us turned up wearing clothes from supermarkets which looked lovely, which got me thinking about the rising influence of supermarket clothing lines against high street.

It wasn’t too long ago that I used to walk past F&F at Tesco, never bother going anywhere near George at ASDA and just laugh at anything that looked remotely like clothing from Lidl. However, in the last year I have seen press releases and got to work with some supermarket clothing brands which really changed my mind about the quality and design of supermarket clothes. George at ASDA has produced some beautiful occasion dresses and the team have been very kind to offer me to wear one of their designs to Ladies Day at the Royal Ascot which received multiple compliments – everyone was pleasantly surprised to find out my dress was from a supermarket brand. I was incredibly surprised with Lidl who have really upped their game in their clothing department and came out with elegant and on trend pieces of excellent quality. As for F&F at Tesco, I have seen their AW15 collections and I cannot wait for boho/seventies inspired pieces to land in store – they can really match high end brands!

It’s not even all about the price anymore as supermarkets are catching up with high street prices – dresses from F&F are priced at an average of £14, and jeans go for around £15/£20. Lidl are the bargain brand with many pieces costing an average of £5 and George at ASDA can charge at around £20 for an occasion dress. However, the quality of the pieces is often better than some of the more expensive high street stores. Without mentioning any names, but a lot of popular high street AND online brands will often come up in conversation about poor quality and friends often moan about how quickly their shoes broke, or their sweater frayed. But put one of the supermarket brands to the test and their pieces will last you for a long time.

Understandably, younger girls and boys will care about what they’re wearing and often ditch anything that’s not Topshop/Topman, Superdry or ASOS - I remember I used to be mortified when my mum suggested that a supermarket had a nice piece of clothing. BUT when labels become exactly what they are, would you care more about where your item was from or is it the style and quality of the piece that would encourage a purchase? I think it’s a bit of both for me, but by no means would I ever stick my nose up at supermarket clothes again.
