Sticks 'n' Sushi Review | Emma Jayne

So this review is one that I have been meaning to do for ages and it's actually from my favourite restaurant - Sticks 'n' Sushi. I have now been to the Covent Garden site, Canary Wharf, and most recently, and the time this review is based on, in Wimbledon. Jack and I went to celebrate my new job starting and we had a lovely evening out. We booked a fairly early dinner at 5.30 and after having a few drinks elsewhere in Wimbledon we headed in and were greeted and lead to our table by the lovely man on the host desk.

The perfect Summer Drink | Warner Edwards Rhubarb Gin Review | Emma Jayne

As the sun finally starts coming out and we start seeing warmer days (this week its been hitting 29 degrees!) it’s time to get yourselves to the pub or out in the garden with a drink in hand enjoying those rays of vitamin D. If you know me you know that I’m not a particularly big drinker as in I don’t enjoy going out and getting smashed every weekend and I certainly don’t enjoy the hangover that come with that. So you could say I’m much more of a light casual drinker having a drink every now and then, and with that I therefore like to enjoy my drink a lot more.

Usually in the summer my go to alcoholic drinks are either Malibu or Cider as they have a very distinct taste that I love. This year however I had tasted a sample of a different brand rhubarb gin and couldn't get the delicious taste of it out of my head. As I couldn’t remember the name of that brand I scoured the internet and started to sew photos of the Warner Edwards Rhubarb Gin online. This then led me to ask for it at every occasion in bars (not very many stock it), then realising I love the the taste, and that it's not stocked in many supermarkets. I however planned to buy it online until I saw it in Waitrose this week and stocked up immediately.

Bread Centrale Bruch Review | Emma Jayne

As I’m sure you all know by now I love a good brunch and have been reviewing the places I go. This review from a few weeks ago was when we went out for a late lunch to Bread Centrale.

We had been wanting to here for a few weeks and finally found the time so walked down the river – which was also really nice, and headed in. first impressions are that this isn’t much of a place with it not being obvious from the outside and then the d├ęcor inside being slightly dated, but this didn’t put us off. The menu is good and I was drawn to the ‘build your own brunch’ as in this you can put together your perfect brunch with a range of breads, eggs, meat and sauces. I went for sourdough, poached eggs, bacon, sausage, and avocado. Jack however decided to go for a BBQ Asian Chicken pizza as we did go pretty late for brunch terms.

Spring Outfit of the Day | May | Emma Jayne

So today’s blog post is a little outfit of the day, I wore this over the weekend and it has certainly been one of my go to outfits as the weather has been getting a little warmer.

I think it is a perfect outfit for popping out for the day, going to the pub or out for brunch as I did just over the weekend.

I love that it's so simple, but the shoes dress it up just a little and depending on how you accessorise you can really make it glamorous or simple. The top is so pretty with cute detailing on the sleeves, and the edge of the bottom of the top.

Free From Fizz Smoothie Kit Review | Emma Jayne

I received the revolution Free From Fizz Smoothie Kit from the Revolution 3rd birthday party goody bag, and I’ll be honest I was a little sceptical! I have a sensitive scalp and already use a pretty premium frizz reducing shampoo and conditioner.  I used this for the first time after I had been swimming so my hair was in bad shape!

The Kit

The first thing I noticed in the shower is the amazing smell! It was like an orange explosion had happened in my shower and it was delightful! Now starting with the shampoo it a) smelled amazing b) lathered nicely and c) left my hair feeling clean. The conditioner was so nice, I felt I did need a little more than I would usually use but it also a) smelt amazing and b) left my hair feeling super smooth!

The kit also came with a serum and this was probably my favourite item in the kit. After I towelled dried my hair I used 3/4 pumps of serum between my hands and distributed it evenly through my hair. This is what I believe was the magic formula! It left my hair not feeling weighed down or greasy and once my hair was fully dried (air dried) it was so sleek smooth and light!

My hair is naturally pretty curly and wavy so I will always choose to straighten it over leaving it natural – particularly on the weekend, so I straightened my hair as normal and the results were great! I can not stop touching my hair!! It is so light, so soft and I can honestly see a difference and reduction in the levels of frizz that I would usually see.

Excuse the few kinks from having my hair up all day!  

The final product in the kit is a Smooth spray and although I didn’t use that on the main trial I have used it aside from this and it does help tame my unruly hair. It did however make my hair feel slightly greasy so this wasn’t my favourite product in the kit.

Overall I was really impressed by this kit and would repurchase the full size options! The kit retails for £4.99 (60ml shampoo and conditioner and 10ml serum and spray) and can be purchased from the TAM Beauty site.

All the products
