The Treat Kitchen is the Place of Your Childhood Dreams**

Let's be honest, we all love a nice treat once in a while and what better way than treating yourself to some of your favourite sweets? I don't do it often, but when I do I'm super happy, sweets make everything better. The Treat Kitchen very kindly sent me some of their products to try out and devour before their grand store reopening in Highcross, Leicester. My family are a sucker for sweets and we always eat them as soon as we can so I had to leave a threatening note whilst I was out to tell them not to eat them. They found it funny but I was fully serious. 

Top Pick of the Week - Amy Lawton

New artist alert! Amy Lawton has just released her first single, Undone, and it's giving me real country Taylor vibes! I'm super excited to see where Amy is headed in the future.

Interview with Josh from With Confidence

With Confidence are an Australian pop punk band from Sydney - if you haven't heard of them; where have been??? Formed in 2012, the band is made up of Jayden, Josh, Inigo and Luke. Their album, Better Weather, was released in June last year and was a hit! They've since released the album's B-sides. Don't you jut love B-sides? I sure do. 

I had the opportunity to chat to Josh (right) all about their album, tours, supporting some amazing acts like Mayday Parade, and what is coming up in 2018. If you're a fan of With Confidence, this is something you've got to read - it's got a few exclusives in there!

Get Gorgeous Pearly Whites With Superdrug's Charcoal Toothpaste Plus SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

We all dream of having whiter teeth. When there's celebs out there like Selena Gomez who have gorgeous pearly whites, how can we not? Unless you're willing to pay a huge amount to have your teeth cleaned, or get one of those lights that you stick in your mouth, or even buy that disgusting remedy of charcoal powder; getting those lovey white teeth is a bit of an unrealistic dream.

Supposedly, charcoal is a natural teeth whitener. I always found that a tad weird, teeth whitening with a black substance, like what the hell? So I decided to give it a go. I wasn't prepared to put a load of charcoal into my mouth so the next best thing was to get a charcoal toothpaste. However, I chose Superdrug's own range because I have something exciting to tell you all.

Barns Courtney - Live Review**

Saturday night I decided to tag along to a local gig at The Cookie in Leicester, where English singer songwriter, Barns Courtney, was performing. I had a wonderful night, in fact, I had so much fun that I'm still tired and trying to catch up on sleep on my day off. If you haven't heard of Barns Courtney than you're probably kidding yourself, you'll know his music when you hear it (especially you Fifa fans). Is Barns as good live, as he is in the studio? Hell yes!

Interview with ZEALS

ZEALS are a relatively new band and I've been loving them recently. The band have just released their latest EP, Ready To Fly, which has got me super excited for their future music! They've got a nice sound which is a mix of pop and rock, lots of guitar and drums. I interviewed this band so you can learn a bit more about them.

Micro Cell to the Rescue**

I think my nails are in a pretty good state, but there are some days where they can be ridiculously weak and flakey - which isn't exactly ideal. I'm always on the look out for a nail treatment to keep my nails healthy and strong so I was very excited when Micro Cell 2000 got in contact with me and sent over some products for me to try out. I've been testing these out for about a month now and now I'm finally ready to tell you all my verdict.

Top Pick Of The Week - Dreamer and Son

Dreamer and Son are currently working their way to the top with their indie style. Their sound is a perfect balance of rock, pop and indie, their meaningful lyrics also capture human emotion amazingly. Made up of Sayak (vocals and guitar), Jake (bass), Matt (guitar) and Josh (drums), this unique four piece from Boston are sure to be winning awards in the near future.

The Versatile Blogger Award

It's been a good few years since I last had a post like this! I don't do them very often but I was kindly nominated to participate in the Versatile Blogger Award by Hannah over at Rand0mg4l. Okay, so the idea of this post is to share seven interesting things about myself that you may not know about me. This isn't very easy since I think I'm a pretty boring persona and at some point I've probably told you everything about myself. But I'm going to give this a try and hope that you find at least one of these facts somewhat interesting.

GUEST POST: Tips and tricks to Enhance Your Natural Beauty || Amy Mia Goldsmith

Ladies, here’s one secret you all should know – women are beautiful. They’re beautiful when they smile, when they look at someone with love, when they are fierce. They’re beautiful in their bravery and their happiness. We forget this because we started believing that good looks lie in expensive clothes and airbrushed magazine photos, but we’re here to remind you of a few things. Each of us has something unique that makes her lovely and beautiful, and it’s reflected in how we carry ourselves, and how we use our charm. Get comfy, because here we’ll talk about how we can nurture our own natural allure and make sure we’re brimming with good mood and confidence.

Keeping It Casual

I thought long and hard about what sort of things I should show you and talk about in my post today. After some deliberation I decided to show you some of my go-to casual outfit which I've been loving. I've already cleared the shelves of all the autumn clothes already so I'll probably have another fashion post up soon. Instead of my sister modelling for me, I took the plunge and decided to be in front of the camera for once. 

What Blogging Has Taught Me

Blogging is a tough thing, my friend thinks it's an easy job. But every time I tell him all the work I've got to do in a short space of time, I make him eat his words. I've found out in the past two years that blogging isn't all sunshine and rainbows, although sometimes it seems like it is.

When I first began blogging I was a total newbie, I had no idea what I was doing. Like, at all. But over the years I've slowly learnt the tricks of becoming a successful blogger. Before I really got anywhere, all I thought was that the views would come to me, but that's not the case. I've worked my butt off to get where I am and I won't be stopping anytime soon.

Top Pick Of The Week - M.O

M.O are the new girl band on the scene and you'll be hearing more of them in the near future. They killed it at the Fusion Festival and the V Festival. This British threesome are made up of Annie Ashcroft, Chanal Benjilali and Nadine Samumles and their R&B style songs are making an impact. Little Mix, watch out, you have some new competition!
