March Favourites

March Favourites
Hi everyone
How was your Easter holidays? I can't believe it's April already. I'm here to share with you my March Favourites. All beauty products are cruelty free.
ASDA's Little Angels Baby Oil
In March I was loving ASDA's Little Angels baby oil. It's less than £1 which makes it budget friendly. I use baby oil as a make up remover and also to moisturise my face and body.
Baby oil locks in a lot of moisture so if you have dry skin then I'd definitely recommend that you try this product.
To find a cruelty free baby oil is rather difficult so I'm glad I've come across this one.
If you know of any other brands then please let me know in the comments below.
Rabbit Money Jar
I'm a big fan of any rabbit related items so when I saw this Rabbit Money Jar in Poundland I thought that it was cute and perhaps would encourage me to save a few pennies. I've recently filmed a Rabbit Clothing and Homeware haul on my YouTube channel. If you love rabbit items as much as I do then click here to be directed to the video.
Citrine Crystal
I've added a new crystal to my collection which is Citrine. Citrine is for healing and balancing. It's to help aid manifestation. The yellow and gold energises the solar plexus chakra for creativity and self esteem. Let me know in the comments below if you would like me to blog about my crystal collection. I'd be happy to show you :)

5 Things You Should Do After Being Ghosted

5 Things You Should Do After Being Ghosted
Have you been a victim of ghosting?
Ghosting is when someone disappears from your life without warning, reasoning or justification. This can leave you feeling confused and hurt as to why someone has done this to you.
I've experienced ghosting in the past  and I wanted to share with you my 5 tips on how to survive being ghosted.
1. Don't take it personally
Somebody disappearing doesn't reflect your self worth. The individual either doesn't want to deal with confrontation or figure out the situation with you. It shows the immaturity of that person.
2. Don't confront
Confronting the person won't change how they feel. If someone can't see your value then they don't deserve to be around you. 
3. Avoid hunting
Delete their phone number, defriend them on social media and do everything possible to avoid them until you’re fully over them and the situation.
4. Move on 
Silence is a form of power and control. See it for what it is which is emotional abuse. Let it go and move on with your life. 
5. Focus on yourself
Take your mind off from the situation and do something else. Maybe painting,  drawing or watching a film. Appreciate yourself and your good qualities. Surround yourself with people who love and support you for who you are.

The Head Of Steam Nottingham

13:27 2
The Head Of Steam Nottingham
Last night I was invited by TANK PR to have a sneak preview of a new pub which is opening in Nottingham today at 5pm called The Head Of Steam
This cosy but with a modern-twist pub spreads over two floors and it offers over 120 types of craft beer, real ale and world beer. Along side the beer guests can order wine, cocktails and spirits.
The Head Of Steam is a place where anyone can come along including dogs. I'm a huge dog lover and during my stay I made friends with 2 dogs which made my experience 10/10.
The Head Of Steam offers a contemporary twist on classic pub grub. They serve food from 11am.
I ordered a margarita cocktail to sip on as I browsed through the food menu. There is a wide variety to choose from and the prices are fair. I decided to try the Halloumi and red pepper hummus wrap with sweet potato fries which tasted fresh and delicious.
For pudding I had the strawberry and rhubarb cheesecake which went down a treat.  The cheesecake was light and sweet. Recommended.
After I had some food I decided to try a few of the cocktails that are on offer. I'd recommend the Cherry Lollipop which is a mixture of cherry juice and amaretto. If you have subscribed to my YouTube channel then you will know that I'm a big fan of Amaretto.
I think that The Head Of Steam offers a great service, food and drinks. The staff are warm and welcoming.
If you visit then why not let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
I'd like to thank TANK PR for inviting me and to The Head Of Steam for having me.
I shall be back for a visit again soon and hopefully make more dog friends.
Bunny Hugs,

Happy Dough Lucky Nottingham

Happy Dough Lucky Nottingham
Do you fancy visiting a hidden gem in Nottingham? It's only open for 12 weeks, I would recommend visiting Happy Dough Lucky which is a pop up pizza restaurant located inside of The Lace House on Broadway Street.
Happy Dough Lucky contacted me and asked if I would like to sample the food menu in exchange for a honest review on my blog.
I jumped at the chance seeing as though they are currently ranking number 1 on Trip Advisor as the best place to eat in Nottingham.
My table was booked for 6pm and  when I arrived I was warmly greeted by staff and handed a delicious rum punch cocktail from the bar.
The restaurant is open plan so you can see everything made fresh in front of your eyes. 
Happy Dough Lucky came about when the staff had a  trip to Naples.  It was fascinating to hear the story and they had brought back polaroid pictures which were on the walls. 
For starters I sampled the garlic butter balls which were cooked to perfection. I'd recommend those to try. I also tried the chilli chips which I wasn't a fan of because I'm not into spicy or hot food. 
For my main course  I chose a mozzarella and tomato pizza. It tasted delicious and fresh. The pizza melted in my mouth and it was the best pizza I've ever eaten. I could only manage to eat half of it.
If you can't eat all of your pizza then the staff will happily box it up for you to take home. I like how they cater to dietary requirements such as gluten free, vegetarian and vegan.
After feeling full and defeated from the starter and main course. I still wanted to order a dessert.
I went for the pancakes with Nutella, fruit compote and homemade coco pop ice-cream. It was delicious. 
I think that Happy Dough Lucky have hardworking attentive staff, great fresh food and portion sizes.
I wish Happy Dough Lucky every success in the future and that they continue to stay open after there trial period.
If you visit  Happy Dough Lucky then why not let me know what you think in the comments below or you can tweet at me @Bunnymoonstone.

February Favourites

February Favourites
Hi everyone.
I'm here today to share with you my February Favourites. All beauty products are cruelty free.
I have only used 3 products consistently throughout February. Let's start with the first item.
Salt Of The Earth Roll On Unscented Natural Deodorant
If you have been a fan of my blog in  the past then you will know that I'm a big fan of Salt Of The Earth Deodorants. Click here to read my recent review on Salt Of The Earth Unscented Roll On Natural Deodorant.
I'm impressed with the roller ball applicator, which has excellent coverage and long lasting protection.
Glitter Eyes Pressed Glitter "Barely There"
I mentioned at the beginning of February in my Birthday Gifts Haul video that I brought a Glitter Eyes Pressed Glitter in the shade "Barely There" as a present to myself. It was £6 from a little make up studio in Nottingham called CaBella.
Watch the video below.
The pigment holds onto the eyelids extremely well and the colour is a beautiful sparkly pink. I have received a lot of compliments when I wear the eyeshadow for nights out.
Colouring Book
I've really been enjoying a colouring book which I brought from The Range for £1. It has various landscape scenes, characters and patterns to colour. I find it similar to meditation as it helps to quieten my over active mind. I use Stabilo fine liners which are great quality and shade in the pages nicely. Sometimes I like to put headphones on and listen to music. Art and music are a perfect combination for me to relax and recharge. The only thing is it is a A5 size and it would be better on A4+ paper as it is easier to colour.

5 Budget Friendly Beauty Tips

5 Budget Friendly Beauty Tips
At the moment I'm taking a break from making YouTube videos and I am focusing on self care. What do you do to take care of yourself? Let me know in the comments below.
I've come up with 5 budget friendly beauty tips to make yourself look beautiful and save money.
Visit Freebie Websites
Before spending any money on any full size beauty products see what freebies you can find on the Internet first. I use wowfreestuff daily to see what samples and freebies I can order straight to my door. I always Google search a brand to see if they are cruelty free. So far I've recieved a moisturiser, perfume samples and new make up. I'm someone who always carries little samples of perfume in my bag because they are a great size and economical.
Coconut Oil
I saw a quote on Pinterest recently which said "a solution to all of life's problems is coconut oil" and I couldn't agree more.
Coconut oil can be used in a multitude of ways such as a make up remover, moisturiser, hair mask and for consuming. I love it because it's a natural substance and a little goes along way. I would highly recommend investing in a tub of coconut oil. I paid £2.50 at Sainsburys for a 500ml jar which lasts me about 2 months.
Drink Water
I often forget to drink enough water through out the day and then I wonder why my skin isn't clear. Drinking water is essential for your body to keep hydrated and your skin clear.
Sleep
Did you know that getting enough "beauty sleep" improves the condition of your skin?. Turn off all electronics and treat yourself to an early night because your skin and body will thank you for it.
Smile
There's nothing more beautiful in a person than your smile. and it's free. Smiling improves how you look and feel because it releases endorphins. Have you heard that "a laugh a day keeps the wrinkles away"?
I think that happiness is the most attractive quality in a person.

Salt Of The Earth Roll-On Unscented Deodorant Review
I'm pleased to be reviewing the first Roll-On Natural Deodorant which has been added to Salt Of The Earths Range. Click here to be directed to Crystal Springs website to view the collection.
The Roll-On Deodorant is 100% natural and suitable for vegetarians and vegans. It's also unisex, gives long lasting protection, is not tested on animals and does not stain clothes.
My first impression of this product is that it comes in a handy size which is perfect to use at home or when travelling. I love the roll on feature with it's smooth application on the skin and it delivers good even coverage.  My skin feels great, protected and moisturised.  
The roll on formula includes magnesium oil, natural mineral salts and organic aloe vera.
This product is another success for Crystal Spring.
