Wetherspoon Christmas Dinner | Brie & Cranberry Vegetable Burger



It's that time of you, where everywhere you go has Christmas dinner inspired meals. I headed to The White Lady (Wetherspoon) with my Mum for dinner. 

I ordered the brie and cranberry vegetable burger, which came with chips, onion rings and a drink. The drink I had was.... an Irn Bru. Everyone who knows me, knows I always go for Irn Bru. Irn Bru should give me a job. I do well, at advertising Irn Bru.

What can I say where else can you get Christmas dinner, with chips ? The vegetable burger is the burger on their main menu, but with breaded brie on top.

NYX Haul



I am still stuck saying "NYX", as in letters. Once I assume how to pronounce something, there's no way out. I watched a YouTube video a while ago and someone said it's pronounced "nix". Here I am still saying "NYX". Scotland has a small section of NYX in drugstores, so it always amazes me seeing the lip bar in a NYX store. You don't realise how many different things a brand has, till you see a store.   

While visiting New York, I stopped at NYX in Union Square. I always go straight to the lip bar to check out the newest range, then look at what makeup I've not seen before. I wandered round picking up a few products from the lip bar and and an eyeshadow pallet. I then headed to the till not thinking how much I'd spent and it came to $73. He said it came up on the screen I spent $70, so I was entitled to free makeup. I expected him to give a sample size, so I was surprised when he came back with an eyeshadow pallet, the wonder stick and an Illuminating stick, which come to $39 alone.

Lip cream Metals : Elite
Lip cream Metals : Crystalized Metal
Liquid Suede Metallic Matte : Exposed 
New York Lip, Eye, Face Collection
In your element Metal Palette

Glossier Showroom Haul


As I said previously, I went to Glossier Showroom and bought some products. I didn't know anything about Glossier, as it was my first time visiting the Showroom and I'd never bought anything from the Glossier website before. I wanted to buy one or two things to try the brand out, but everything looked so pretty. I found myself ticking everything on the order form, that I liked the sound of. It came to $125, but It's not everyday I can go to New York to visit Glossier Showroom. 

Products: 

Body Hero daily wash
Body Hero perfecting cream
Milky jelly cleanser 
Priming moisturizer
Haloscope : Moonstone
Balm dotcom : Birthday 
Cloud paint : dusk  
Glossier You perfume sample 
Glossier stickers
Pink travel bags

Governors Island


If you're ever looking for something new to see in New York, head over to New York Cliche. Mary Lane lives in New York and she posts about her everyday life, in New York City. Follow her on twitter, she posts some of her funny happenings in the crazy City, of New York. She's so friendly, so give her a follow on twitter and you can tell her you found her through me haha. I first heard of Governors Island over on New York Cliche. Mary posted a blog post about Governors Island open for the Season. I looked on the Governors Island website and it showed it was open till the end of October. 

I love the atmosphere of Times Square at night, so I've always stayed in the Times Square district. It also means when I go downtown, I try squeeze in as many things as I can. I already planned to see Glossier Showroom and Dumbo, over in Brooklyn. So I planned Governors Island as an extra if I had time to fit it in.

I headed towards Battery Park and looked on Google maps, to see exactly where the Governors Island ferry terminal was. It showed 7 minutes walk and last ferry was leaving in 20 minutes. I thought let's do this. It was closing for the season and I'd never been to Governors Island.

There was only about 10 people on the ferry heading over, so it was like an escape from Manhattan. I didn't know what to expect on Governors Island, except seeing the fun summer photos on New York Cliche.

The first thing I noticed was how welcoming everyone was on the Island. I headed around the lanes. People were going by in golf buggies and waving. The workers were walking by saying hi. How was I still in New York ? Everyone seemed so friendly. I stopped and took photos of the views and the American buildings.  


It was a fun and quick visit to Governors Island and it only costs $2 on the ferry. I even met a few workers from the Island, asking to shake my hand haha.

DUMBO Brooklyn

The great thing about Instagram is seeing photos, within the same interest as you. I kept seeing photos of a New York street, looking onto the Manhattan Bridge. The location on the photo had DUMBO Brooklyn. I have walked across the Brooklyn Bridge and turned back, just to sat I'd been. 

As I like to plan my routes around New York, I always look at Google map and think what works best. I always, always walk Manhattan. Can you believe I've been to New York 6 times and never been on a tour bus ?. Walking is the best way, to take in the New York atmosphere. I feel like taking a bus, you're missing out on half the City. I've walked from Times Square to Brooklyn and it's honestly the best way to see New York. 

I headed down Manhattan making a stop at Glossier Showroom (worth a visit, if you like makeup and skincare). Then I made my way following the signs, to the Brooklyn Bridge. For the first time I was able to say "I've been to Brooklyn". Last time I crossed the Brooklyn Bridge, to say I'd done it. 


I found my way to the famous street (Washington Street) at the sea front of DUMBO. It looks just as amazing in person, as it does in photos. The street itself, is like a tourist invasion. You have to become a professional at moving your camera at the right angle, not getting people walking into the photo. I do pity the New Yorkers, who have to drive up and down. I watched cars toot their horns, trying to drive by. So if you plan on visiting DUMBO, please be aware it's a public street.   

DUMBO is short for - Down Under the Manhattan Bridge Overpass.

MAC Snow Ball


Everyone tells me I spend too much on makeup, but believe it or not I do try save money. MAC is expensive, so I tend to buy it at duty free or in America, unless it's a limited edition I buy on MAC website as they sell out fast. MAC have just released a limited edition Christmas collection called, Snow Ball. Can you believe the lipsticks and eyeshadows are already sold out on the website ?. I planned to get 1 lipstick from the collection, but you know I failed. I ended up getting 2 lipsticks and 2 eyeshadows. There was also 10% off, 4% Quidco cash back and I used the gift card.   

So here I introduce you my lipsticks and eyeshadows I picked.

Lipstick :

Warm Ice
Holiday Crush


Eyeshadow :

Delicate Drift
Starry Nights


I love the gold and shimmery design, different from the classic black. The lipsticks were hard to choose from, so I picked holiday crush and warm ice. Both lipsticks are nude colours which I like, nothing to dramatic. The eyeshadow is designed in a snowflake, you don't actually want to use it as it's so pretty the design.   

The person who gave the gift card will see this, as they are known to read my blog.

Soap and Glory The Ultimelt


New York really is the City that never sleeps. When I go to the City, I try to make the most of it. I was out till 3am and am guilty to say, I was too tired to even wash my makeup of my face. I was getting up at 6am, to get out and see that City again. If you'd even call that sleep. 

I knew I had to sort my skin out. I've been using the Soap and Glory Ultimelt. It comes with a cloth, but who follows instructions ?. I've been using it like a face wash. My skin feels so much better and the smell is really nice. 

It's £10 from Boots (buy it when it's 3 for 2 and save money) Boots do a lot of offers on Soap and Glory, either 3 for 2 or a third off.
