Wanted to talk about a bit of food today and at the weekend I went to a sushi bar in Birmingham for lunch and thought I'd show you guys what it's like!
The restaurant is called Shogun in The Mailbox here's the link if you want to check it out:

So here is one of the dishes that I tucked into, inside it has mango, lettuce, avacado (which I always take out), crab and a bit of raw salmon - yumm! We also ordered green tea which I think is delicious and in the top right you can see some cut up ginger soaking in soy sauce which complements the sushi perfectly.

This is how the sushi is served, on a conveyer belt which I find super fun, the staff are really lovely and its such good value because it's an 'all you can eat' restaurant which is a winner for me.
Hope you enjoyed seeing what my tummy has been up to, comment and share if you love food!

Get to know us


This is our first blog so we thought we'd say a little bit about ourselves then answer a few questions so you can get to know us better.

I'm Becky, I'm 18 and still at school and have always loved makeup but have been fully obsessed with beauty for about two years now and I wanted to make my own print on the beauty-sphere so decided to start a blog which was when I asked my brother's girlfriend Sarah to start it with me as she's a beauty addict too! 

I'm Sarah and I've loved beauty from the moment I started wearing makeup (too long ago!) I'm 22 and I've recently been working in marketing for the beauty industry so I've been able to fuel my addiction by testing beauty products, writing about them and spending every waking minute thinking about them. This is the perfect opportunity for us both to do what we love best together and share it with you.

What do you love about beauty?
Becky: I find it so interesting as there's always something new! I just get so excited when anything remotely beauty related is mentioned and walking into Boots is like a mini trip to Disneyland for me! I love finding new products and doing lots of research, I love reading blogs, watching hours and hours of beauty videos and trying new looks.  
Sarah: I love how beauty transforms you; it can create a whole new look, build your confidence and change your mood. When my skin, hair and nails look good, I feel great inside. It makes me love being a girl!

What's your favourite mascara?
Becky: Max Factor False Lash Effect, the 24 hour one and I promise it doesn't budge!
Sarah: I've used L'Oreal Volume Million Lashes for a long time but recently splurged on Lancome Hypnose Doll Eyes which is up there too. This is definitely a blog post waiting to happen.

What's your favourite drug store brand?
Becky: It's very hard to pick but I'd probably say Rimmel because they always have the latest trend products when you need them!
Sarah: My absolute favourite high street brand is Bourjois, my makeup bag is full of their products and it's such good quality.

What's your favourite high end brand?
Becky: Dior. I fangirl everytime I see a Dior stand!
Sarah: Dior and Chanel are both competing for my love here. I can't decide!

What's your number one beauty tip?
Becky: I've only just found this recently but putting black or a dark brown eyeliner on your tightline gives the illusion of really full and voluminous lashes!
Sarah: As much as I love makeup, the best beauty 'secret' is just to always drink lots of water! It's important to feel good on the inside to look good on the outside!

What was the last makeup item you bought?
Becky: Rimmel Scandaleyes eyeliner in nude and Collection Illuminating Touch Concealer in natural.
Sarah: I'm ashamed to say I haven't bought anything new for a while, so I'm going to have to say it was my usual foundation from Clinique.

What's the best place you've travelled to?
Becky: I would have to say Malaysia, that country is a big part of my life and has a big piece of my heart!
Sarah: We both love travelling and it's so hard to pick a favourite. New York was the 'once-in-a-lifetime' trip for me but if I had to choose right now it would be Barbados. I love the people, the atmosphere and of course, the beaches!

What's your favourite food?
Becky: Chocolate! Chocoholic is a mild description of my love for that stuff!
Sarah: Anyone that knows me will agree that I'm addicted to cereal. I want some now...

We hope you enjoyed getting to know us both and we'd love to hear from you so leave a comment below. Come back soon for our next post!
