FOOD | Cabana Brasilian Barbecue Restaurant

Hello lovelies!

Today's post sure is a TASTY one. This is my first restaurant based kind of post, because for once my boyfriend didn't cringe out too much about me taking pictures of literally everything I could see.

I really enjoy reading these kind of posts, usually for inspiration for new places to try out, even if it makes me have incredible food envy! Quite a photo heavy post lovelies, of yummy goodness!

Last week I was lucky to go out to eat to Cabana Brasilian Barbecue  which is based in Leeds Trinity. It is a relatively new restaurant to Leeds, around half a year old now, but I have been quite a fair few times now.... and I have always had a FANTASTIC experience each time. The staff make it, they are incredibly upbeat and just so so happy and energetic all the time, how do they do it?! Unfortunately for now, they are only based in Leeds (Trinity) or London (Covent Garden, Islington, London 02 Arena, Wembley, Westfield London and Westfield Stratford) but I am sure that they must be expanding!

Bright and colourful, such a lovely cheerful place!

Quirky playful interior design, plus the graphic designer inside me ADORES the gorgeous brightly
 coloured menu... will have to take some inspiration from this one day!

So.... what were we going to order?! I admit, I am quite indecisive when it comes to choosing my main meal, and this was no exception! (I always decide my drink and dessert super quick... just not the main?! Too many tasty choices!) 

Leeds Trinity Cabana Brasilia Restaurant

Like I said, my drink decision was EASY. I have had this drink before and it is SO amazing MmMmMm... It is called Fresh Limonada Suissa (£2.95) Such a delicious thirst quenching drink, I couldn't recommend it more... although next time I really want to try the cocktails, they look amazing! The sauce and oil is also amazing, YUM.  Chatting, Slurping and munching away at some nibbles, tummies rumbling - waiting for our mains to arrive!

Leeds Trinity Cabana Brasilia Restaurant

And here is my main, and it was extremely yummy! I went for the classic well known favourite choice of Cabana, The Spicy Malagueta Chicken Skewer with Sweet Potato Fries (£11.95) 

Delicious marinaded chicken and peppers fresh off the skewer, so fresh they bring it still on the skewer when they serve it to you! Yum! I am not sure how to describe the marinade - but it is SO GOOD. I wouldn't say it is too spicy, but then again I am a lover of spicy food and I also coated it in extra sauce! Sweet potato fries... because WHO DOESN'T love sweet potato these days?! I was so so full that I didn't manage to eat them all - this makes me so sad because I could definitely munch those right now. 

But not too full for dessert..... of course. 

Leeds Trinity Cabana Brasilia Restaurant

Ok. This is probably one of the BEST desserts I have had in a long time. We have had this before and adored it. It is definitely a dessert to be shared because of how sickly and rich it is, but WOW, it is truly amazing. They are the Chocolate Rainbow Doughnuts (£5.95) Warm gooey doughnuts, filled with Nutella inside, with MORE Nutella to dip in. AHH I want some right now. Truly fabulous. A very naughty treat. 

Leeds Trinity Cabana Brasilia Restaurant

At the end when you pay your bill you are presented with little brightly coloured bracelets. (I can't quite remember the story behind it) A cute Brasilian tale, but the idea is that you tie them on your wrist in three knots, making a wish for each knot. I believe that is has to fall off naturally into some running water and then your wishes will come true! A really nice touch to the end of your meal!

Overall a lovely lovely experience as always, at an affordable price. The atmosphere is just wonderful, I feel extremely happy every time I leave this restaurant. I am sure I will be back soon!

*TOP TIP* - I heard this from my friend the other day! (after I had visited this time) There are some quirky booths made from denim, with the 'jean pockets' still attached, and my friend had a little nosey in the pockets and found a voucher to claim a free dessert - what a treat! 

Sorry if I have made you hungry lovelies! I am starving and off to make my dinner now! Thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed it! (Do let me know if you like these kind of posts and I can do them more often!) Have you visited a Cabana Brasilia Restaurant before - did you enjoy it?

THIS MATERIAL CULTURE | Feeling Thankful and Lucky

Hello lovelies!

Today's kind of post is kind of a rambly one. The type that you begin writing at 12am, that could potentially be complete and utter jibberish, but could also be the best piece you have ever written. NIGHT OWL. 

Each night, when I finally get myself into bed, often after a really long day, utterly exhausted and I just can't sleep. Lots of thoughts roll around my mind, some nice ones and some not so nice ones. Often quite a lot of self hate, mixed with high expectations of myself.

this material culture jewellery review lucky charm

You know that amazing time in life, when you just see something, and it inspires you to do something. I really value the inspiration around me when it comes to writing up interesting posts. (Well, I like to think they are) This is just what happened when This Material Culture contacted me. 

This Material Culture are a small Husband and Wife business, based in Liverpool, specialising in hand-made jewellery - with a cute quirky style. I think being Husband and Wife is super SUPER cute. 

They inject personality into the pieces they make, including pieces for the Game of Thrones and Hunger Games Lovers. Everything is also at an affordable price so you aren't going to break the bank, being the perfect gift for family or friends! I particularly like the bangles or the necklaces, but they also have earrings AND a men's range! You should take a peek at their shop here - I think you lovelies will really adore their products. 

When the lovely Rebecca got in contact with me I was really really excited. I love supporting small businesses - you have to start somewhere right?! And the power of us bloggers is INCREDIBLE. I think jewellery is a very personal taste. I personally like really quite plain, simple pieces, often with not a lot going on. My daily necklace is a simple heart, and I just love it. What I love about This Material Culture is that they give their products each their own personality, there is really something for everyone! The pieces are also made from high quality materials but they are very dainty! (I like dainty jewellery, so 5 stars from me!) 

this material culture jewellery review lucky charm

I was kindly gifted the Lucky Bangle* (£10) With green being my favourite colour, it caught my eye instantly. Also... who doesn't love a 'good luck' charm! Saying that.... this isn't actually how I view my new bracelet. 

Jewellery is incredible. It can have one meaning to one person, and a completely different meaning for another. For one, this bangle might mean a lucky charm but for another, simply a reminder of what to feel thankful / lucky for. This is how I view it anyway, which is where this post inspired me.

These nasty thoughts that I keep having whilst I am trying to sleep (technically when I am supposed to feel my most relaxed....) keep occurring. A recurring thought I keep having is that I don't really like the sort of person that I am at the moment, and I often question why anyone might like me, since, even I sometimes just find some of the things I do extremely annoying! I get irritable perhaps over the silliest of things, things that just shouldn't bother anyone, and that makes me very sad. If someone were to ask how I might describe what is currently going on in my mind I would tell them this: 

"I feel like there is still the really happy bubbly Kayleigh inside my head and she is brave enough to come out to all you lovelies in the blogging world, family and at work with colleagues etc, but sometimes in situations happy bubbly Kayleigh is so so small, and Irritable Sad Kayleigh likes to knock her down and be all loud and angry and take over her so that Happy Kayleigh can't shine through." I realise this sounds a little mad, but still, it is the way I feel I can attempt to explain what is going on. 

This all started to begin really after my nan passed away. My nan was the most incredible woman in the world - I truly idolised and adored her, and I miss her so so unbelievably much. (I am crying whilst writing this :( booo) I would do anything to hug her (never letting go) and go for a hot chocolate and a cake. 

Anyway, I like to try and remain positive on Very Berry Cosmo so I am going to try spin this around! This lovely bracelet from This Material Culture (that I am currently wearing daily, because I LOVE IT) to me is just a little reminder of how extremely lucky I am for the life I live. I should be thankful for all the wonderful times that I had with my lovely nanny, and all of the other amazing people that surround me in my life, who are all just so great. Dad, you are fabulous <3 I have also had a fabulous year working as a Graphic Design Intern and I am doing well in my degree. I can afford to eat pretty nice food as well as buy myself a few beauty treats, plus a roof over my head, and unfortunately this isn't the case for everyone. 

There is something about the human mind that really does baffle me, are we ever happy with what we have, or do we always want more? Sometimes you just need that little reminder that you really have it good in life - and for me, this little bracelet does just that. I do hope that with time happy Kayleigh will outshine sad Kayleigh, but for now I am going to try and jam it in my brain that I am very thankful and lucky. 

Thank you This Material Culture for providing me the inspiration to write this post, as well as a gorgeous bangle! I have my eye on the arrow necklace because it is wonderful!

Hope you enjoyed this post lovelies - and remember to cherish your loved ones and be thankful for the life you live. 

Kayleigh xoxo

YOUTUBE | Manchester Blogger Fun!

Hello lovelies!

Today's post is going to be rather short and sweet. (I know! Not like me to do a short post...)  Back in January I created a list of things that I wanted to achieve that month. You can find that list here, perhaps for some inspiration for your own goals!

In that list I stated that I wanted to get into the big wide world of Youtube more. That just didn't happen in January..... or February... or March actually, life took over somehow! - but YESTERDAY I managed to upload a NEW Vlog, one I am actually really really proud of, I feel it is SUCH an improvement compared to my previous two vlogs. You can find my channel here.

Photo credit to the lovely RHIANNA 

On Saturday I was blessed to meet up with the lovelies in the image above! Absolutely GUTTED that we didn't manage to take any selfies together, but we did get this photo above. (Even if my face is blocked out by the lovely orange light)

I met up with the lovely Rhianna at Leeds Train Station on Saturday morning. Train buddies! I was worried that I was running a little bit late, but I had plenty of time so I managed to grab myself a Starbucks, vanilla latte of course. We were UNBELIEVABLY lucky to grab ourselves a seat because the train was packed with people, with it being the grand national. After a few giggles, vlogging attempts and PLL discussions (the best kind of discussions) we had arrived in Manchester!

It was my first time in Manchester, except inside either the airport or the train station, so I didn't have a CLUE where we were.... We wondered around for a bit, a little lost, looking for the rest of the girls! We then found them running off a bus, I am SO PROUD I caught this on camera and AHH it was just so cute. *emotional* Love you girls!

We were a little early for the market, so we found ourselves a little cafe, the staff were amazing - I wish I could remember the name of the place! I opted for a Strawberry Laces Tea (I don' like tea, and it was yum) The teapots were also SO CUTE! Lots of giggles in this place.

We then headed off to find the Ziferblat  where the Bloggers Market MCR 2015 was taking place, a cute little cafe, where you help yourself to the food / drink / WIFI / Electricity, but pay 5p per minute whilst you are there. A really cute idea, the environment was seriously relaxing, you felt like you were at home in your kitchen pouring your own cereal! This is where we met Jemma and Laura, they were both lovely :)

After spending £3.20 for my visit we went SHOPPING! Luckily we were very good and resisted most purchases! Even in Lush.... and the deadly BOOTS! But then.... we headed to a THREE STOREY Paperchase - pure stationary heaven! I picked up these lovely postcards - I LOVE paperchase postcards, they are humorous, witty, or motivational. I like to put them on my wall :) We stopped in the Paperchase cafe for an hour or so, who knew you could get a cafe in Paperchase?! I had a delicious smoothie, I would call it Very Berry Cosmo. 


After a group decision, with our hungry bellies talking, we decided to go to TGI's! YUM. I haven't had a TGI's in so long, and when the option was mentioned to go, I just couldn't say no! Let me just point out.... this was the biggest TGI's I have EVER seen! Wow! It was seriously impressive. Delicious meal and cocktails, again with lots of giggles! You can see this in my vlog below!

A few more shops & then we had to say goodbye :( It makes me so happy to think I have found these lovely lovely girls through blogging, it warms my heart thinking about it! Hazel, Lou, Becca, you are next! We also missed you very muchly Mara <3

You can find the girls here if you don't have them already - Sophie, Laura, Emma, Rhianna.

The blogging community is AMAZING and there are SO SO many more of you that I cannot wait to meet. Meeting the people you spend hours tweeting etc online is SO incredible and I love you all xoxo

Here is my VLOG of the fabulous day :) 

Hmm... wasn't quite as short of a post as I thought! Opps! Thank you for reading this post lovelies, I hope you enjoy watching my vlog as much as I enjoyed filming it! Please do give my video a like, and perhaps give my channel a subscribe! (if you want to) I also welcome any feedback on my videos - always wanting to improve! 

Love you lots,

Kayleigh xoxo

BEAUTY | #LashesLive with Nouveau Lashes

#LashesLive with Nouveau Lashes

Hello lovelies!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter break, I sure did! It has been absolutely lovely to have a few days off for a nice rest, as well as my belly feeling extremely full and loved.

Anyway, for today's post I thought I would share with you the lovely little event that I was very lucky to attend last week, LashesLive with Nouveau Lashes. The lovely Claire from Propaganda kindly sent me an invite to this event and I was super super super excited that there was an event in Leeds! (perhaps a little too excited!) apologies, this post is really quite photo heavy!

Nouveau Lashes is a brand I previously didn't really have any knowledge about. After a quick google search I found out they are the brand that produced the lovely Millie Macintosh lashes! I have lusted over these lashes a few times, however I have constantly resisted purchasing them, being someone who hasn't even attempted to apply lashes before! I have always feared of them looking silly on me and peeling off in the corners, looking like a spider!

Nouveau Lashes not only sell strip lashes, they also offer different lash treatments such as LVL enhancement at a professional level. LVL treatments add length, volume and lift to natural lashes. NL Technicians are trained to the best standard to ensure that they can give their clients the lashes they long for. You can also ensure that you are in safe hands when participating in a Nouveau Lashes treatment, which is really important considering you are letting someone play around with one of your most vital organs!

Before the event I met up with the wonderful Rhianna and Emma, it was absolutely tipping it down, but that didn't at all put a downer on our moods! The event took place at The Malmaison Hotel in Leeds, a truly wonderful hotel! We were very lucky to be greeted with tasty treats and drinks, MmMmM.

#LashesLive with Nouveau Lashes
#LashesLive with Nouveau Lashes

yummy! The little burgers were so small and cute! I also absolutely adored the prawns! The sweet treats were also delicious, however really quite rich!

We were then whisked off into another room where we were given a presentation all about Nouveau Lashes and what they do. We then got to watch how to apply strip lashes, whilst learning a few tips, demonstrated on Corinne! Kellie then got settled down to have the LVL treatment, (they looked so amazing and natural afterwards!) and we all had the challenge of applying our own strip lashes! (This was kind of terrifying for me... such a lashes newbie!) 

Let the fun begin..... First up, Emma and Rhianna

#LashesLive with Nouveau Lashes
Classic bloggers taking photos of everything, the amazing adhesive, goodie bags and Emma's amazing lashes!

Mine and the beautiful Alex's turn! I met Alex at this event - it turned out we both were following each other on twitter so this was lovely! Let me just say.... there wasn't any beginners luck, I certainly wasn't a natural!

#LashesLive with Nouveau Lashes

At first I really struggled at applying these, partly due to not having an utter clue, and partly the pressure of being watched. I found it really fun to find out what eye shape I had. Often an error when applying lashes is not choosing the correct lashes to suit your eye shape. It turns out I have almond eyes and this meant I was able to pretty much choose any pair I fancied! I went for the Natural Strip 4, like Emma! What a lovely pair of lashes!

*For the newbies like me* At first twiddle the lashes around your finger to get a natural curved shape, pick the lashes up, use tweezers if you wish, and put them up against your eye to see if you need to trim them to fit. Apply the glue, WAIT for it to dry, and then lean your head back (this helps) and put into place, simple right? WRONG. haha, I had a bit of a boo boo and it turns out I was trying to use the right side lash on my left eye. No wonder I was struggling!

The lovely lady from Nouveau Lashes had to give me a hand with the first one because I just wasn't getting the hang of it - was being a bit of a chicken! I pretty much feared the power of the glue and didn't want to get it stuck in the middle of my eye lid and then not be able to move it! This wasn't the case and it turns out once you brave it and roughly pop it into place you really do have the flexibility to move the lash around a bit! I DID IT! Yes there was far too much glue all over the place and you could totally see this - but not bad for a first attempt! Lots of fun and giggles!

& here are the goodies that we were so so lucky to receive! I am so grateful! Thank you so much Nouveau Lashes, and the lovely Claire for this wonderful opportunity and your generosity!

Three pairs of lashes to have a little play with! The natural style 4 pack was the pair that I had a play with at the event, but you can get quite a few wears out of them, put them back to sleep in the pack! - they were a lovely set of natural lashes! I also picked up the natural style 1, and glamour style 1 in case I am ever feeling a little bit more brave! Cannot wait to try these lashes out - just need the perfect occasion! I also hope I am better at applying them next time! Fingers crossed!

A lot of people at the event had noticed, that having a good glue is really important in strip lash application. The Ultra Bond strip lash adhesive really was incredible and powerful! *TOP TIP* Ensure the strip has plenty of glue, but THEN, the magic happens when you wait a few moments for the adhesive to dry. I learnt that a lot of people don't wait long enough for the glue to dry - and that causes it to not work / last as long! Be patient ladies! I haven't had enough usage of the conditioning serum to comment yet, but I will keep you updated! Sounds like an exciting product!

Have you ever heard of Nouveau Lashes? I really recommend the brand, they are really lovely lashes, I also believe that they are far easier to handle / apply compared to lashes that you may find in the drug store! Perfect for the newbie like myself! (They are a much finer strip, making them a lot less noticeable and far more natural!) I am now embracing the flutter flutter lifestyle! Love them! I also love love events, seeing bloggers you talk to in real life is always AMAZING.

Hope you enjoyed the post! Lots of Love,

Kayleigh xoxo

FAVOURITES | My March Favourites

Hello lovelies!

Today I thought I would share with you my March FAVOURITES. This is actually my first ever favourites post but I have really been loving some magical items this month - so I thought I would share them with you today! I love reading these posts because it is always great to see what people recommend in the blogging world, even if it makes my bank balance cry.


Liz Earle Cleanser Good Things Micellar Water

1. Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser (100ml Pump Starter Kit £15.50) 

You have probably heard about this pretty fabulous product before, the iconic Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish. Loved by a lot of bloggers and youtubers, and I can definitely see why! It contains Rosemary, Chamomile, Cocoa Butter and Eucalyptus Essential Oils. I guess it is a little bit pricey on my student budget so I use this as a little treat at the weekends or if I am feeling perhaps a little bit down. For £15.50 I believe you get the 100ml product as well as 2 muslin cloths. These cloths are great at removing the dead skin cells. It makes my skin just feel extremely soft, as well as very fresh. Everything I now use on my face just doesn't compare - I never feel fully clean unless I use this wonderful product! It breaks down make-up amazingly, even waterproof mascara, and it is very kind and gentle on the eyes! (I wouldn't go shoving it directly in there though...) I have yet to explore the rest of the Liz Earle Range, but I am sure the temptation won't be able to hold for much longer!

2. Good Things Acai Berry Multi-Tasking Micellar Water (250ml currently £2.99 in Boots! Usually £4.49) 

I didn't actually mean to buy this product, I popped into Boots because I was running out of my trusty Garnier Micellar Water, and it happened to be out of stock. Normally I would go and try Superdrug and see if they have any in stock but I decided to take this as an opportunity to try something new, I am glad I did! I had heard of Good Things before, but only because my best friend had a few of their products in the bathroom last year. This product range really caught my eye, all the beautifully packaged products lined up on the shelf so I decided to get a closer look. 

Since attending #nyLDNmeet I have been more aware of looking out for more natural products without parabens in. This product made that extremely easy for me by saying it smack bang on the front! (Also free from animal ingredients, sulphates and mineral oils.) I really like what my skin feels like after using this, as well as what it looks like. It appears more radiant and healthy. It is also the most GORGEOUS smelling micellar water I have ever smelt. I have been using it everyday for.... my guess... about three weeks now and I am really pleased with it. This week I have had a few spots, but I wouldn't put it down to this product... think it is just because I am a girl, if you know what I mean... I won't lie, it doesn't take make-up off as quick as the Garnier Micellar Water, but if you are after a more natural based alternative this one is really lovely! Although - BEWARE, it stings your eyes a lot if you get it in your eye - so don't do that! 


MAC Rebel Satin Lipstick
MAC Rebel Satin Lipstick

3. MAC Rebel Satin Lipstick (£15.50)

I never thought I could love a shade more, or as much as MAC Girl About Town, but this one is truly STUNNING. Described as a creamy plum, I think it is kind of a berry colour. I find when I wear this shade I feel more confident than usual, it is absolutely lovely! A lip colour that receives many compliments, that is for sure! I find it clings to the bad dry parts of your lips quite badly, but give them a good scrub with a lip scrub and you are ready for the perfect evening pout! CAN'T STOP WEARING THIS SHADE.

Dusty Girls Pink Ladies Blush

4. Dusty Girls Natural Mineral Blush in Pink Ladies* (£15.00)

This blush is absolutely BEAUTIFUL. I am the emoji with heart eyes whenever I look at the blush. Dusty Girls  are an extremely new brand to the UK originating in Australia. From the creators of MooGoo, a brand which I in fact featured in my previous post Finding Confidence In Your Own Skin. Dusty Girls, like MooGoo create their products with completely natural ingredients. 

The colour is a gorgeous pink with a touch of sparkle when in pan. It gives a healthy flush to the apples of your cheeks with a teeny shimmer, but not overload don't worry! The packaging is lovely, it comes in a box and a little sleeve. I was surprised with how pigmented this blush was, with it being made of natural products, so do be careful not to put too much on your cheeks! But this blush is amazing and I am so happy to have it in my collection! Thank you for sending it to me Dusty Girls and MooGoo! 

Sleek Contour Palette Real Techniques Brush

5. Sleek Make Up Face Form Palette in "Shade Fair" (£9.99) 

What an amazing little palette! I am a TOTAL newbie when it comes to the world of contouring but I have really been enjoying this one. It contains a contouring powder, highlighter and a blush. I find that the contour powder is perhaps ever so slightly on the too dark side, for my ever so pale skin, but after lots and lots and LOTS of blending - I like the contour it gives the hollows of my cheeks. The blush and highlight are both perfect for my skin tone, a wonderful palette. (The outside casing gets a little grubby though!) 

Make Up Revolution do a dupe of this product for just £4, I don't know the quality of this product since I haven't tried it, but I imagine like their other products that it is probably a great one! 

6. Real Techniques Cheek Brush (From the 'Nic's Picks Collection)

Oh hey there, finger print covered brush. mmmm. Anyway, I have a lot of love for this collection of brushes, but I particularly love this cheek brush. I pretty much purchased this set for this brush, I adore it for highlighting my cheekbones!


Lush No Drought Dry Shampoo

7. LUSH No Drought Dry Shampoo (£3.95 50g)

This could just be my ultimate HOLY GRAIL. I rely very heavily on dry shampoo for that extra top up of freshness. I purchased this after the lovely Rhianna mentioned it on her blog. & my golly gosh (did I just say that...) this stuff is incredible! When it comes to dry shampoo I usually use Batiste or Co Lab. I have used talcum powder once, it worked really well - I just don't like the smell of it! This works similarly to Talc, it is a powder, but instead it has a lovely citrus smell! I wish I purchased the bigger bottle because I really do love this, even if I make A MESS on my floor when I sprinkle it. A little does go a long way though. A wonderful product, that does the job excellently, plus it is a sustainable option in comparison to aerosols! 

Lee Stafford My Big Fat Healthy Hair

8. Lee Stafford My Big Fat Healthy Hair Shampoo and Conditioner* (250ml £5.99)

Let me just begin by saying these products were incredibly difficult to photograph! The shiny material of the packaging just kept reflecting the light! The lovely ladies of NBPR sent me these products, thank you! When they arrived I kind of squealed because they are so pretty and pink, and they look wonderful stood on my shelf! What I love about Lee Stafford products is that they are classed as high end in the drug store, whilst still being affordable compared to the likes of Redken and Bedhead. 

I have yet to test this shampoo whilst having straight hair. (Which is when I really need that BIG FACTOR, because when it is straight it goes very flat) With my natural curly hair, I haven't necessarily noticed an increase in volume, but it certainly looks healthier, with a nice shine. It also feels healthier, almost like the hairs are thicker and stronger! I find my hair perhaps gets greasier slightly quicker than other shampoos that I use... but that might be because I can't stop touching my soft hair! But that is no problem because I can use No Drought! On the day of washing, hair looks wonderfully squeaky clean plus a lot more maintained! A lovely duo of products. 


Olympus Pen E-PL7 Camera

9. Olympus PEN E-PL7 Interchangeable Lens Camera 16MP (£399.99) 

Those of you that follow me on Twitter or Instagram may have seen that I got myself a little toy eeeeek! My dad was lovely and gave me some money towards this for my birthday and I paid for the rest. It is such a beautiful looking camera! I am still in that stage where I am 'oh so delicate with it' and I am very cautious about it getting dirty - but all going well so far! I am still learning how to fully understand this camera, could really do with reading the instruction manual! It has lots of settings to have a play about with, including some filters. It has a 'selfie' fold out screen, which folds below, which could potentially work very well as a vlogging camera - I still haven't tried this out though! (The current setting makes my hair extremely greasy oops! Need to sort that out rapidly) It comes with a strap, essential chargers as well as a detachable flash. A lovely camera - perfect for blog photos. I am looking for a case for this camera, so if anyone has one of these and a suitable case, please link me!

& that is my monthly favourites! I hope you enjoyed reading this post and do pick up any products that take your fancy! Have you tried any of these products, and did you love them? Sorry that I keep doing really long posts at the moment! 

Kayleigh xoxo
