Foodie Heaven at Revolution Bar

Revolution Bar (or as I still call it, ‘vodka revs’) may be know for it’s delectable flavoured vodka shots and indulgent cocktails, but did you know they pride themselves on great food too? On Monday, me and my other half were treated to a meal from the brand new menu- Massive Tastes- to see what we thought. Read on to see my review of the food, the service and the atmosphere.

Lucky Cloud Skincare

I met the wonderful Lucy Cardwell on Monday; she is the founder (and CEO, and designer, and maker, and all round girl boss!) of handmade botanical skincare brand Lucky Cloud

I tried some samples of her wonderful cruelty-free products, which include Body butter, Body milk, Body balm and lip butters; the full range is available at The Scottish Design Exchange

We had a great chat about ethical cosmetics (which you may have noticed is a huge area of interest for me lately!) and being a small business in a big, bad world. Find out more at http://www.luckycloudskincare.com

Cruelty Free Face Products

I was having a very bad skin day, as you can see on the left, but with a few lotions and potions, I easily turned that around. 

The best part? All the products I used are 100% cruelty free (excluding parent companies e.g. L’oreal/Unilever that do), so no nasty animal testing. What’s more, they mostly contain natural and hypo-allergenic ingredients, so great news for sensitive skin! 

For a full breakdown and review of the look, read on, and for a master list of all the cruelty-free make up brands on the market, click here!
