Pact Coffee: Where have you bean all my life?

The title was brought to you by one of the best friends ever. I can't claim that as my own, but it makes me smile so much whenever i read it. He's pretty great.

He's also the one who got me addicted to having my coffee delivered to me via Pact coffee. Pact let you pick a coffee which is freshly roasted and delivered straight to your door. You choose the coffee, the frequency of the delivery and how the coffee arrives. You can have it ground or whole bean so you can grind it yourself. I am very lazy, so i always get mine ground for me. They trade with farmers all over the world and ensure they get a fair price for their coffee, so its a win win for everyone. 

There are so many different types of coffee you can choose from and they are always changing. I'm currently drinking a coffee called Planalto which is grown in Brazil and has hints of malted milk chocolate shake. It's super smooth and really yummy. I've got a coffee with hints of peaches and cream to try after this one too and the previous one had hints of cherry. Lots of coffee i wouldn't have ever thought to try before but i'm so glad i have. 

You can use this coffee in all types of coffee makers; aeropress, cafetiere, drip machine, espresso machine & stovetop. If you opt for whole bean you can grind them to the consistency that you like. I however, having my beans ground for me only use them in a drip machine. I even bought one that you can use for individual mugs. Safe to say, i'm addicted. It's so much easier than brewing a whole pot just for one drink and it's super easy to use. Just put it over the mug, put a filter in, load up with coffee and pour hot water over. Simple. 

I love having a nosey around their website, looking for new coffee to try or new gadgets i could purchase. Have a look for yourself here!

The order is £6.95 a time but if you refer a friend who signs up you both get £5 off your first order! You can choose whether its weekly, fortnightly or even monthly so if you need to keep costs down you can! Try my code of BEVERLE-5F62AD if you want a cheeky £5 off your first order!

Let's Walk All Over Cancer This June!

It's a known fact that i am rubbish with anything fitness related these days. I'd much rather lay in bed all hours of the day than get up and go for a walk but 2017 is my year of change and what better way than to start halfway through the year right?..... 

I recently came across a Cancer Research fundraiser where you walk 10,000 steps everyday in June. I can start my fitness journey as well as raising money for such a good cause. I'm sure like myself, most of us have been affected by cancer in some way, whether it's a friend, family or even yourself.

The funds raised will go towards research into over 200 different types of cancer and you can raise them by walking, running, jogging - anything you can do to get your steps up. I've found going for a walk during lunch or after work is a great way to hit the target. I've already smashed the target today by walking & running over 12 thousand steps! 

My fundraising journey starts today and it's not to late to sign up. Every donation, no matter how small can make an amazing difference and you could help fund ground breaking research that means we can beat cancer sooner. 

You can help by donating below if you wish:-

KIKO Milano Make Up Masterclass: Sheffield

Make up is not my forte. I am the kind of girl who slings on some foundation and mascara and i'm pretty happy with that - even if it has all slipped off my oily face by about lunchtime - so when i was invited to KIKO Milano for the evening by Sheffield's Alive After Five team for a masterclass in all things make up i was super excited. 

The super talented ladies that worked there were showing us all different techniques by applying a full face of make up on someone and talking us through the process at the same time. Throughout it i learnt that concealer is your best friend and if you make a mistake, fix it with concealer. This is definitely something i always forget and can often be found just removing it all and starting again. 

We were shown a neutral smokey eye with orange-y shades of brown and on the other side we were shown a black and green smokey eye with an amazing eyeliner flick - the trick is to do a tiny line and then wet a thin make up brush and a drag it through the line, creating a longer and more precise flick - and then fix with concealer if you go wrong! This technique for eyeliner is something i've tried since and it definitely makes things easier for me. Result!

Contouring was also something we were also showed how to do however, you can show me all the techniques in the world and i will still not be able to do it. Or look any good in it for that matter. So let's leave that at that. 

Once the masterclass was finished i had a browse around the store. I was familiar with the KIKO Milano brand but had never really had chance to have a look at the products they do. They range from Foundation and Mascara to Face Masks and Fixing Sprays. Something for everyone i think. They had a lot of things on sale and so i picked up a face mask, an eyebrow pen and some fixing spray - if you've read any of my other skincare or make up posts you will know my make up had a tendency to disappear. I was pleasantly surprised by the price with all 3 of those costing me £14 approximately. They do have a lot of things on sale which are really good and super cheap so i might have to have a browse next time i'm looking to treat myself!
