Guide To Buying A New Car | Lifestyle

Is it weird that I’m 22 and I don’t drive? Like I don’t even know how to, I don’t have a license or have even passed my theory test yet. I’ve never needed to drive in the past and believe in the saying that my mam used to tell me “Some people are meant to drive and other people are meant to be driven.”

But there are times when it would be handy to be able to drive myself about so the time has come for me to learn how to drive and I just love going car shopping with all my mates and family. I always struggle deciding whether it’s best to buy a car new, nearly new or old. I know that there’s pros and cons to every one with one of the major factors being price but you always have to think in the long run too, what’s the point in buying a well cheap car now if I’m going to have to fork out a lot of money on it over the years.

Working with Go Girl Insurance I’ve been able to find a guide for buying a car with the best pros and cons of both which has really helped me and hopefully will help you too if you’re looking at buying a car!

Not only can looking for a car be exciting but I’ve found there are so many companies out there offering different levels of learner driver insurance that vary both in price and optional extras so it’s worth shopping around to make sure you get the right insurance to cover while you practise towards getting your driving license.

Benefits Of Drinking Healthy Drinks


Kick start your day with a healthy and detoxifying glass of juice. This is the best way to treat your body well.
We go on with life, completely involved in work, family and kids, but when we take a look at ourselves in the mirror we make endless wishes. ‘’I wish I could lose all this weight’’, ‘’I wish I had beautiful skin and hair’’, etc.
Well, all we need to do is invest just 15 minutes a day to make a glass of healthy juice to detoxify our body and to feel healthy and refreshed.
And yes, health drinks can be delicious too.
Here are some quick recipes

Grab some mint leaves, celery, cucumber and spinach blend them into a smoothie and enjoy all the good vitamins and minerals entering your system. This makes you feel energized for the rest of the day.

Blend some apples, beetroots, carrots and tomato. The color of the smoothie is so enticing. This is one of the healthiest smoothies that straight away clears up all the impurities of the blood, leaving you with excellent health and clear skin.

Fruits taste way better than vegetables. So, how about a delicious glass of fruit smoothie? Throw in some Bananas, Kiwi and sapodilla into the blender and enjoy the natural sugary taste packed with proteins. Or if you are a fan of citruses- you can use oranges, or lemons and say hello to vitamin C.

Here comes the best one and probably the one which is going to be the most handy. 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, 1 tablespoon of ginger and 1 tablespoon of aloe Vera mixed in hot water. Drink this up first thing in the morning and see all your fat just melting away within 15 days.

The feeling of happiness and positivity comes in the pink of health.
Give your body a break from the sodas and colas and treat it with some colorful, healthy and delicious smoothies.


Now that your favourite ingredients will be in the blender you could take the time out to play free online bingo to refresh your mind as well.

Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh | Beauty

I am so fussy when it comes to scents, I’m either a fan of everything girly so I smell like a walking, talking vanilla pod or flower or I want to walk past someone and all they smell is a strong musky smell and think that a really nice smelling guy just walked past them. Well maybe not that bad, a musky scent with a hint of floral lets say.

One of my all time favourite perfumes for years now has to be the Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh £65, I’ve been a firm lover of this for probably around 5 years now and I know it’s going to be my go to scent years in the future. I’m a massive fan of all of the Marc Jacob scents but the reason this one is my favourite is because of the fruity, sweet, floral scent it has. It really is a girly scent.

Something that I can say about Daisy Eau So Fresh is that I am in love with the bottle, I feel like this perfume could be the worst smelling thing in the world but I would still love it because of the bottle itself. With the white, yellow and pale pink flowers on the cap and the pale pink bottle it really is beautiful and perfect for Spring.

I would say that this scent is perfect for Spring and Summer but as I said before to me it is an all year round scent. This scent is definitely one for your girlfriend, your mother, her mother, your nan, the lady down the street that occasionally says hi to you . . . Basically this is a perfume for any lady in your life.

CABSLAM Berlin | Travel

I love brunch, there’s just something so much better about having brunch than breakfast or lunch. Even though 99% of the time I’ll have all three . . . I can eat okay?

I love all of the food that you can get because there’s usually loads of different things including avocados, eggs, fancy different things which you never knew excited. So on my recent travels to Berlin as soon as I heard about the place CABSLAM which is meant to be the place for breakfast/brunch I knew I needed to go.

CABSLAM – Innstraße 47, Neukölln, 12045, Berlin

CABSLAM actually stands for The California Breakfast Slam so you can understand why they shortened the name, even though it’s nice putting that everywhere would take ages. The name comes from the fact that it’s an American style place that serves breakfast and brunch served with some California love.

Have I already mentioned how much I love this place? Like I honestly fell in love with it and would love to go back to Berlin simply for this place, if you’re ever in the city it’s a must.

Fair enough it is a short trek to find it and we did get a little confused by our map apps, it took us through some of not the best streets which was a little scary but at the same time I loved it, you really got a feel for the place and saw the bits that’s not just on show as you would expect. This doesn’t mean that CABSLAM is in some sort of run down, unsafe slum by any means – you’re perfectly safe.

I opted for the Huevos Rancheros in the brunch size for €8.90 and if you’re not aware what that is it’s basically a plate of two homemade corn tortilla with two fried eggs, black beans, fresh pico de gallo salsa, guacamole and sour cream. I’ve never tried this before but thought it sounded like the perfect thing and oh my days was it one of the best things I’ve ever eaten.
It was honestly so good and just writing this post and looking back at the photos is making me drool, I might have to try and recreate this myself at home one day.

Mark on the other hand opted for the Breakfast Burrito for €6.90, not going to lie I was completely tempted to opt for this one myself because it sounds amazing. ‘Flour tortilla filled with egg, bacon, cheese, black beans, ranchero sauce and potato.’ – I would be lying if I said I didn’t end up eating probably half of it, I can’t help it. I have a thing for eggs okay?

Overall get me on a plane back to this place asap.

L’Oreal Paris Infallible Mattifying Base Primer | Beauty

I’m so bad that when it comes to makeup I actually hardly use primer, probably the reason why my skin is awful and my makeup looks horrible after a while.

But I’m trying to be better and trying to get into primers again and with the whole L’Oreal Paris Infallible hype going round I decided to test out their Mattifying Base Primer £8.99.

It comes in the same packaging as the foundation does but it’s just filled with the clear primer (obviously.) It’s a pretty thick primer with that weird primer texture, do you know what I mean? Like it has a weird texture that I get with all primers, basically it feels like all the others.

I’ve used this for a while now with the foundation and I love it, it keeps my foundation in place all day and it creates a lot less creasing than I normally would get.

I would like to point out that when I was badly sunburnt I used this for that little protection layer with my foundation and to ya know try and make sure you couldn’t see my bubbling, crusty skin through it. Seriously I looked like a old mans saggy, crusty ballsack.

It was disgusting.

But this primer saved it a little, like I still looked bad but I didn’t look anywhere near as bad as I did without the foundation on.

Overall fave primer at the minute!
