LIFESTYLE | VeryBerryCosmo's 1st Birthday!

Very Berry Cosmo Turns 1

Hello lovelies!

On a cold evening, this very day last year, I decided to sit down and type up my first ever blog post on Very Berry Cosmo!

I was at a point in my life where I was badly struggling with the nasty condition, that is OCD, it made me feel rather lonely, all of the time. I was on my year in industry, working full time, not having an awful lot to do outside of work to distract my wondering mind. My course friends were all over the country / world on placement, and my other friends in Leeds were all very busy getting on with their final years. I had been reading blogs and watching Youtube for a long long time, and I think I just felt like, why the hell don't I give this a go?! 

Who'd have thought I would have kept it up for an entire year?! But I just bloody love it... So much so, that pretty much my entire social life revolves around my little internet platform.

BEAUTY | Make Up Brushes by Look Good, Feel Better

Look Good Feel Better Make Up Brushes
Look Good Feel Better Make Up Brushes

Hello lovelies!

Today I have another 'boobie' post for you since it is still Breast Cancer Awareness Month. If you haven't seen my last post you can find that here.

As previously stated before, it is so so important to give your boobs a check for any lumps and bumps, which is why awareness is very much needed. I won't talk about this too much since I spoke about how to check your boobs in my previous post, but I think we all need a gentle reminder to have a feel, hey! (I know I do) 

Look Good Feel Better  is a very special cancer charity, that has a completely different focal point in comparison to other cancer charities out there. I think it is easy to forget that the big C word can have a huge impact on an individuals self-esteem and confidence - Particularly in dealing with the side effects, such as hair loss.

LIFESTYLE | Five 'ME' Things, That I Actually Like

Five Me Things That I Actually Like

Hello lovelies!

Today's post title makes me look kind of like a narcissist... but it really is quite the opposite actually. I find I have a lot of self hate for myself, and I feel a lot of other people do also, since it is so much easier to point out the things you don't like about yourself, rather than the things that you DO like about yourself. I feel it is looked down upon to talk about the things that you like about yourself, but it just shouldn't be like that. 

Everyone has features that they don't like about themselves, yes. everyone. even Beyonce. This post isn't a 'showwy off' post, but for once I will mention the things I DO in fact like about myself and hopefully send positive vibes my way... because do you ever just have that day where you are like 'my blog content is just not good enough, or I am just not pretty enough to talk about beauty on my blog' because I have it ALL THE TIME.

It's sad that I have seriously struggled to even come up with five things... why do I have so much self hate?

FOOD | Stepping Out Of My Comfort Zone at Bar Soba

Bar Soba Leeds South-East Asia Cuisine Restaurant

Hello lovelies!

Today's post sure is a DELICIOUS ONE. Oh how I would love to be experiencing these hella' good flavours right now, rather than my soggy limp student pesto pasta. (even if it is covered in a mountain of cheese) 

A couple of weeks ago I was very lucky to attend Bar Soba in Leeds, a restaurant offering South-East Asian cuisine, made with the finest, freshest ingredients. Originating in Scotland, there are also 3 restaurants in Glasgow and 1 in Edinburgh.

You know when you arrive somewhere (late, may I add, I couldn't find it!) and you just instantly fall in love? That is what happened here - the venue is absolutely stunning, very blogger friendly! Look for yourself.....

LIFESTYLE | #ShowYourStrap For Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Show Your Strap Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Hello lovelies!

You may have noticed that Very Berry Cosmo has been a little bit quiet for two weeks now, and that is because I had a BIG deadline for university, in total I wrote about 17,000 words! Isn't it funny that I could totally, easily, write that amount of words on my berry filled blog, but when it comes to Uni work, IT IS SO HARD.  

Anyhow, I am back, I hope you missed me :) I'd firstly like to say a HUGE thank you for the support from you lovelies on my previous post, I never expected the response to be like that, it was quite overwhelming, I am so grateful and I hope you enjoy the book if you do read it. Let me know how you get on!

Today's post is important, really important. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The C word is a scary word. Each year almost 55,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK (women AND men), with the shocking statistic that 1 in 8 women in the UK will develop breast cancer during their lifetime.

There is often a misconception surrounding breast cancer, that it is 'a better cancer to have' in comparison to others, due to the success rate but breast cancer is in fact the cancer type that is the second most common cause of death of women in the UK.
