Dig In Allotment Harvest Festival
Hi everyone.

On the 22nd October from 1pm - 4pm. I attended Stapleford's Dig In Allotment Harvest Festival. 
At the harvest festival all various activies were on offer such as pumpking carving competitions, glass jar decorating, willow weaving and pancake making.
My favourite part of the afternoon was seeing and learning about the chickens which they have on the allotment. The chickens are well taken care of and friendly. One kept pecking at my wellington.


I won a bottle of Isla Negra Rose Wine, The Body Shop strawberry soap and Di Palomo's Wild Fig Grape Body Mist on the raffle.

Go Ahead Snacks Review

Go Ahead Snacks Review
Hi everyone.
Go Ahead kindly sent me some of their snacks to try out and test in exchange for my opinion.  I love how Go Ahead are low calorie and are a healthier alternative.
Go Ahead cookie bites are products that have just been launched Crunchy mini cookies with chocolate chips and small bursts of fruity flavour, they have 2 flavours out at the moment. I wish that they would make more. I would like Go Ahead to make an orange, apple and cherry cookie biscuit.
Retailed at £1.99 for 6 packs. 9 biscuits per pack. The cookie bites are my favourite as they satisfy my sweet craving. The white chocolate and raspberry are the best in my opinion. The Cheeky Chocolate and orange, tasted slightly artificial and i preferred the other one better.
Golden baked bars are packed with delicious fruit flavoured filling. £1.99 for 6 bars.129 cal per bake bar. I love the fruit flavouring i think it's delicious.

Crispy slices are light crispy biscuits with fruit filling. Retailed at £1.65 5 packs of 3 slices. 87 calories per slice.
The crispy slices are delicious but why is there 3 in a packet? I think that 3 is too many 2 would be ample. I like the Yoghurt Break bars, which have two in a pack.When testing these slices out, I could never eat the 3rd slice and I would have to save it until later in my bag.

Rush Hair And Beauty Salon Launch Party In Nottingham

Rush Hair And Beauty Salon Launch Party In Nottingham
Hi everyone.

On Thursday 20th October I was invited to see the new Rush Hair and Beauty salon which opened in Nottingham on Long Row. The event was from 6.00pm until 8.00pm 
When I walked into the salon I was given a name tag which made me feel like a VIP.  I will treasure this name badge for a long time as this is the first event which I've been invited to through my YouTube channel.
Glasses of prosecco with strawberries were offered at the front desk. I couldn't wait to grab a glass and have a look around the salon. 

I think that the interior of the salon was classy, stylish and bright. The salon felt more like a spa than an everyday hairdressers  If you want to treat yourself and escape pressures of everyday life then I would recommend coming here.

The staff were very friendly and were offering my fellow bloggers tours of the salon. I decided to  film my own virtual tour for the internet on my Instagram story. I've uploaded this to my YouTube channel in case anyone has missed it. 

Watch the video below here -
Downstairs was being used for colour consultations on the night if any bloggers wanted to book themselves in for a future appointment. Party snacks and nibbles were offered to us as we went round the venue.
Upstairs had GHD styling, braiding and hair up stations avaliable.
I decided to have my hair straightened by GHDs(good hair day) as i wanted to try it out. having heard so many good reviews on their products. My hair was so shiny and sleek after it was straightened. I felt like a princess.

The brand of products which i noticed mostly at Rush hair were Kerastase, Redken and 72 Hair.
The only cruelty free brand which i'm aware of is 72 Hair.  In a ideal world i would love if all hair salons would use cruelty free products.

Think In Nottingham's Launch Party

Think In Nottingham's Launch Party
Hi Bunnies!

On the 7th October, i was invited by my friend KaHo on Facebook to go to Think In Nottingham's preview party of their new creative meeting space, pop-up shops and cafe. It's great to have a place for creative people in Nottingham to meet and learn new skills. I'm proud to be a part of the creative community as I have a YouTube channel and blog.
If you would like to go and visit Think In Nottingham's space it is at Cobden Place in Cobden Chambers on Pelham Street.
Taken outside of Zara by KaHo Leung
For the launch party i wore a black bow headband (Sainsburys), poncho wrap (Matalan), black dress (Internationale), leggings (Sainsburys) and boots (Evans).
  The two pop-up shops in Cobden place are currently Sue Ryder and the Focus Gallery. 
Sue Ryder
Sue Ryder is a charity who raises money for people with complex needs and life threatening illnesses. The Focus Gallery sell local arts, crafts, jewellery, gifts and cards. 
KaHo tried an earphone headpiece on which teaches about sound travel (although personally i think it looks like something that Lady GaGa would wear). This was apart of Ignites section (they had a table with all science items you could play with). Ignite a company who engage and promote creativity in learning. Ignite bring creativity and curiosity to programmes and projects to make them more engaging. 
I have split the video of the evening into 2 parts. The first part is the Think In Nottingham's launch party vlog. Watch below :)
After the preview, me and KaHo went for dinner at Hand Made Burger Co In Victoria Centre. This will be the second part of the video which will be live tonight at 7pm on my channel. The staff were friendly and service was excellent. I would recommend the milkshakes (you can have soya milk instead of dairy for extra 30p) I had the peanut butter soya milkshake and was huge. The taste of it was like sticking a straw into a jar of thick creamy peanut butter. Yummy :)


See you tonight at 7pm.

Bunny Hugs,

Hayley
