The Handmade Burger Co | Glasgow

Hi Lovelies
This is a very long overdue post but I've finally got round to posting about my experience going to The Handmade Burger Co. I have heard lots of positive things about this place so its  been on my list of restaurants I have wanted to visit. When me and my partner we look for two things one being a place that offers a decent variety of vegetarian food and a place my partner will like too and he's a not vegetarian so he likes a lot of choices and as we are both muslim it has to have options too. 

The handmade burger co has many restaurants up and down the UK including the one I went too which was in Silverburn Glasgow. UK. They have a decent size menu including vegetarian and vegan options. They also have a kids menu which has 2 halal option and 1 vegan option. 

The Restaurant 
Me and my partner loved the design and the seating was comfortable with a decent amount of leg room too. The table was sturdy which is fab because Ive been to places before and the table keeps moving. The menus were very big and simple to read and I found what I wanted to order easily and so did my partner.

The service 
We didn't wait long for a table, the waiter took us over to our chairs with a friendly smile on his face handing us our menus. When we were ready to order my partner went to the till to pay and order the food and drinks and they came within him sitting down which I think is brilliant

The Food 
Me and my partner ordered the veg-mex burger because we both have a love of spicy food. We also ordered the sweet potato fries and rosemary salt seasoned chips. We waited for the food not longer then 15 minutes and as you can see by the pictures the food is displayed very nicely

As much as I want to say its the best burger I have had I can't, it was a nice burger but for the price it wasn't what I expected and it fell to bits far to easily and it could of done with a spicy burger sauce in it as it was a little bit too dry. The fries and the chips tasted lovely and overall we both enjoyed our meals and most likely would visit here again but would try something different next time.

Things I love

  • Lots of different burgers to choose from 
  • Many vegan, vegetarian options including desserts 
  • Friendly staff
  • Nice atmosphere 
  • Kids menu

September Beauty Favourites

september beauty favourites
Hi Lovelies 
September was a great month for me because it had some beautiful longer warm days and those days slower got shorter and the evenings started to become cooler and you may be wondering why I love that? Well the reason I love it is because it signifies the start of Autumn. For me Autumn means lovely warm jumpers, spicy candles, halloween and also getting ever nearer to my favourite ever holiday ever and that is Christmas.

I usually struggled picking my monthly beauty favourites but for September it was no problem for me at all because all the products I choose were used way more then once during September and they are still being used by me now. I am so confident with my favourites that I decided to make my first ever Youtube video which I have included below, I hope you all enjoy it.

Beauty Favourites 
The Body Shop Hemp Hand Protector 
Autumn and Winter can be a bit harsh to my hands so I love to use this hand cream as it keeps my hands feeling soft all year round. The smell of this is just gorgeous too and a little bit on my hands goes a long way. I put this on usually in the morning and it usually lasts me till the evening till I need to apply it agin.

Urban Decay Foundation 
I absolutely love this foundation ever since I bought it in June, its great as it can give a decent coverage and its very easy to build up without feeling to heavy on the skin. It has a very mild fruity scent and it has a easy to use pump that can be used easily either with a foundation brush or my personal favourite a beauty blender. A little bit goes a long way with this foundation and I am happy to say it lasts all day combined with the urban decay all night makeup setting spray. 

Astral all in one cream 
This cream is a great muli-tasker as it can be used on the face and also as a body cream. This cream is used by my mum and my nana,  they are the ones who actually recommend this cream too me and I am glad they did. This cream is a great budget option and works as well as any other cream I have tried as it smells very nice, it goes onto the skin nicely without feeling sticky.

Makeup Revolution - It eats you up matte
This lipstick has been my all time favourite last month, I don't usually wear the same lipstick more then a couple of times a month but this one I wore most days because I love it so much. This lipstick is a gorgeous bright pink in a matte finish and it lasts so long without needing reapplied! I can't believe it only costs £2.50, its one of the best budget buys I have. 

Makeup Revolution Fortunes Favours the Brave
Another makeup revolution product you say? well I absolutely love the brand because they have come cut so many gorgeous products and the palettes are just wow! This palette was designed with britishbeautyblogger and it has so many lovely neutral shade in it that are perfect for any occasion such as everyday use to a party look.

I hope you all enjoyed my video because I sure had fun making it, over the next few days and weeks I will be making more. This video is a little shaky in parts but I will be buying a tripod very soon. Anyways thanks for reading this post 

What are your September Beauty Favourites?

Nutribuddy 14 day weight loss kit

nutribuddy weight loss kit
Hi Lovelies
Seeing as I am on a fitness journey I thought it would be a wonderful idea to try the Nutribuddy weight loss kit, the one I have is the 14 day kit. I am aiming to loose 3 stone eventually and I have high expectations this will help me start my journey to my goals. Over the past couple of years I have gained a bit of weight but recently I've been going to the gym most days and also aiming to do at least my 10,000 daily steps. 

The Nutribuddy weight loss kit comes in 3 different options depending on what you are looking for and they are as follows: 7 days, 14 days and 30 days. Each of the plans include a shaker bottle and sculpting whey in either vanilla or chocolate and also hunger fix and multivitamin tablets.  All the products from Nutribuddy are vegetarian and the hunger fix and multivitamin tablets are vegan. They also contain a very handy weight loss book and delicious recipe book included in each plan. 

nutribuddy sculpting whey
Nutribuddy Sculpting Whey 
This is made out of whey protein which is high in protein which helps you keep fuller for longer to help you steer clear of unhealthy snacks ( I hope this helps me cut down on the biscuits) seeing as it keeps you fuller for longer. This is for a meal replacement or a snack replacement.

This shake is 100% natural which is great  to hear because Ive see some whey products they have so many ingredients in them. It contains green tea and gunrana which help boost the metabolism. This shake is only 115 calories a serving.  
nutribuddy multivitamins
 Nutribuddy Multivitamins 
We all know the benefits of multivitamins  and how they can help with general health and can also aid in weight loss. The thing I love about these is that they are suitable for vegetarians and vegan alike! so many multivitamins I have seen in supermarkets contain gelatine boo!!! So it nice to see these are gelatine free.

These capsules are supposed to help stop hunger cravings between meals with their key ingredient glucomannan which is clinically proven to help you lose weight. Nutribuddy says it can help prevent snacking.

The Body Shop Black Musk Oil Review

the body shop black musk oil review
the body shop black musk oil
Hi Lovelies
As much as I love perfume I don't buy it very often because far to many brands aren't cruelty free and I only know a handful of companies who don't test on animals such as the Lush and the body shop. I got this perfume called black musk oil from my latest body shop haul in which I got as a Eid gift from my lovely partner.

The Body shop has many fragrances to choose from and I honestly had a hard time choosing because I had a smell of most of them and most of them smelled gorgeous but I eventually settled on this one. The perfume come in many scents in different variations such as perfume, oil and shower gels.

Black Musk Perfume Oil  20ml - RRP £16

First Impressions 
I love the way this perfume was packaged in a black and bright pink box, it opened like an expensive perfume and added to excitement of opening it. The bottle design is very nice too and reminds of retro perfume bottles and with that being said it looks gorgeous displayed on my dressing table. The applicator was a little bit of confusing thing for me as I thought it would be like a serum and deliver droplets but its just a simple clear plastic stick.

My Thoughts
On trying the perfume in the shop which I loved I thought I would give the oil a whirl because I've never ever tried  a perfume oil before and thought it would be pretty much the same as the perfume spray version. Applying this took a little bit of time because it only gives a little bit of product each time but it wasn't enough to put on both wrists so I had to apply separately and then rub together, applying to the neck was similar too. The smell was very nice and has sweet notes of banbinella pear, pink pepper and bergamot with fierce black musk. 

As much as I love the smell of this perfume I don't think it lasts very long and was no where near as strong as the perfume version of this scent. I think I would buy this scent again but no in the oil form because I like to have a long lasting perfume and something thats easy to apply.

I would give this 7/10, I love the smell and the perfume bottle but for me personally I like a more long lasting scent and sprays are so much better for me. I also thought it was a little bit expensive seeing as its £16 for an 20ml oil and £24 for 100ml of the spray version.

What are you're favourite products from the body shop?
