Recently, I had a bout of Very Bad Anxiety. I say recently, it’s actually still going on. About four days into this breakdown, my beautiful boyfriend Danny, bless his heart, came home from work with a bag full of LUSH products that he had spent his birthday money on, because he is the sweetest man in the world and I do not deserve him in the slightest. Thought I’d do a little debrief of what exactly he bought, and why these products in particular are a little bit better than your average bath bomb for relaxation and chill.

Formerly a temporary pop-up vendor in Trinity Kitchen, Wanderer Junk have been serving up seitan burgers & loaded fries to the grateful citizens of Leeds since the start of summer. I think I speak on behalf of literally every Leeds vegan when I say we were all dreading the day their residency would end and we would be left trekking to Kirkstall for MOG’s once more. However, in September, they saved all our asses and announced they had taken over the Chapel of Church, which is right next to the Leeds Uni campus. God. Bless. These. Guys.

I never thought I could fancy an item of clothing this much but it honestly takes my breath away, it’s so bloody beautiful. I’m fully aware that I will never wear a dress like this in this lifetime, but a girl can dream, and also spend every waking moment checking to see if someone is selling theirs secondhand.

Last week, I got invited to my first bloggers event, and in true Yasmin style, it was for the launch of a Gin Club, which meant I got to spend my evening drinking gin & tonic and making new pals at a fancy casino. Blogging is the actual dream, isn’t it?
