Leeds fest; The best way to end your summer

Leeds fest; The best way to end your summer

With so many amazing acts playing this year Leeds Fest is the place to be this summer and in my opinion the best way to end your summer festivities before back to reality.

For a student like myself no summer would be complete without a trip leeds fest especially after the stressful year I have had. I just recently finished sitting my GCSE’s so you can imagine the last couple of months have not been easy for me, hopefully I will be celebrating my results at Leeds fest if anything. It’ll be a chance for not only me but for everyone to let go of everything and to come together for one weekend to enjoy good music and have fun with their friends and meet new  people. What more could you ask for? It really is the best way to end your summer. 

If you haven’t bought your ticket yet, what are you waiting for? The festival is a month away and they have one of the best line ups ever! It looks amazing! Eminem is playing this year and I would not miss it for the world! Please let me know who you’re most excited to see in the comments, I’d love to know! I’m also excited to see Migos, Major Lazer, Bastille and Kasabian.

Why you need the extras?

Early entry – If you have a weekend ticket, this is only £20 extra and you get to go in before everyone else, so why wait in a huge queue when you can go in early? I think it’s worth it, you get first pick on where tot place your tent!

LockerThis is also only £20 and a secure place for you to keep some of your belongings that you may not want to carry around with you or afraid that people might steal.

Charger pack – For £20 you get a charger pack that you can replace and then you get to keep for the rest of your life! And you get to make sure that your phone never runs out of batteries so that you can capture lasting memories and capture amazing videos.

Seat of Luxury – If you are camping out, this will honestly save your life! i already hate having to go to public toilets so never mind in a muddy field with thousands of other people, plus I need to shower! For £35 you get transported to the mayfair hotel where you get, fully-staffed toilets -hot running water -vanity mirrors -hair dryers & straighteners. It’s every girls dream!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An update on are drug store companies in the UK racist?

An update on are drug store companies in the UK racist?

One of the very first ever blog posts that I wrote was on whether drug store companies in the UK are racist and I feel as though a lot has changed in the last year and a half so I thought that I would do an updated blog post and evaluate on just how much things have changed within the beauty spectrum.

If you haven’t read it check it out here – https://justivis.wordpress.com/2016/01/02/are-drug-store-companies-in-the-uk-racist/

In the past couple of months numerous beauty brands have released new formulas of foundation in a number of different shades and I have never been so happy. It now means that I can officially retract my statement on the idea the drugstore brands are racist.  If you have not tried lo’real true match foundation you are missing out, it is the most amazing drugstore foundation out there and it’s only £10! Nyx and maybeline also have a great range of foundations at affordable prices. Now that there are a range of shades available for women of colour like myself, it saves me having to spend £28 or more on a foundation that will last me less than 4 months.

However on the other hand, it is a completely different story for concealers, as of now unless you’re purchasing the La girl pro concealer which is AMAZING by the way concealer costs more than foundation, well for my skin tone anyway, which I believe to be incredibly ridiculous! Although a lot has changed in the last few months there is still room for improvement.

All About Africa; Luxury Trains in Southern Africa

All About Africa; Luxury Trains in Southern Africa

In my honest opinion, I believe that life is all about experiences and experiencing as many things as we possibly can in the short amount of  time that we have, so why would you skip the opportunity to take a once in a life time trip on a luxury train across one of the most beautiful countries in the world? Trade two hours on a plane for beautiful scenery and amazing food. Rovos Rail offers the ultimate in luxury train trains in South Africa. 

Rovos rail offers 7 journeys and 4 special packages all to amazing destinations! My favourite has to be Dar es Salaam. This is a 15-day train journey through South Africa, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Tanzania. This is truly an experience like no other! How many people can say that they have been on a luxury steam train across southern Africa? Not a lot. So if you have the money I say book it, this will not be like any other holiday I can promise you that. It’s an adventure and a chance for you to make new and lasting memories that you can one day share with your family. My love for Africa grows everyday and this will be a chance for you to experience it in all of it’s glory, go on a safari, see the mighty Zambezi and Victoria falls as well as visit a diamond mine! If you don’t wanna go then I will be more than happy for anyone to sponsor me on this magnificent journey.
