Lifestyle: Pokeball pizza recipe

Pizza I chose you! 
Welcome the new edition to my blog.

Yes, every month I'll be taking infamous foods from video games and re creating them for this portion of the blog. 
I love cooking and video games, so this makes a special variation and caters to those who are just plain awesome foodies such as myself. 

This week, it was all about the Pokeball pizza. 
A bit overdone but awesome nevertheless- not to mention easy to make.

You will Need:
-One Pizza Base 
-Tomato Purée (If your base) comes without the sauce 
-Grated Mozzarella cheese 
-Pepperoni or Chorizo 
-Sliced Black olives. 

How to:
  • First thing is spread a even amount of tomato puree all over the base of your pizza, leaving some room for the crust. 
  • However if your pizza comes with the sauce- like mine did, just skip this step. 
  • Then sprinkle a generous amount of mozzarella cheese all over the sauce applied. 
  • Now, taking your sliced Pepperoni/chorizo- layer this on the top half of the pizza and ensuring that you don't go more than half way over. 
  • It doesn't really matter what sliced meat you use, as long as its of a reddish colour. If you're a vegetarian, you can swap out for a Quorn meat-free alternative or even used beef eater tomatoes. 
  • Centre. Get your sliced olives and create the strip in the centre of the pokeball.
  • Then put in the oven at 200 degrees and cook for 8-10 minutes. 

And Ta-daa. 
You have Pizza, that Gary Oak would be envious of.

FOTD: Green with Vice City

Having been up since 4am, I am already tired and its only half nine! 
I'm probably going to be falling asleep during this blog post and why was I up so early- well I have spent at least four hours filming the rest of the footage and editing for my new Retro Gaming review, which you can find here! 

On average, it takes at least three or four days to actually make one of these videos. 

  • Firstly, I have to ensure that I have to game in emulation form or pc format in order to gather the footage
  •  then write the script
  •  record the audio (which trust me, is the easiest part)
  •  convert the audio into a different format- as movie maker is a fussy fuck
  •  record the intro and outro
  •  not to mention playing the game to get the footage

So, it does take a while but majority of the time, the results are worth it! 
This week, I decided to do a review on GTA: Vice city- one heck of a game and probably a fan favourite in regards of the 3D Universe, although San Andreas does come pretty close. 
And I wanted my eyes to have a bit of a pop- so this is the look that I am going for. :)

What I used:
-Avon Magix Perfector
-Sleek Cream to Powder foundation, Shell
-Soap&Glory Kick ass Concealer (Review here)
-Peachy blush from my wholesale blush kit
-Dark Heart Designs, Limelight and Absinthe. (Review here)
-MUA Felt Liner pen, black
-GOSH Amaze'n'Length Mascara
-MUA eye pencil, black
-MUA eye Pencil, Rich Brown (for the brows)

I really suck at eye liner. 
Oh, the hell of a beauty blogger- right?! 
I haven't done a basic cat eye in a while and now I think that I suck at it. 
At first it started off innocently as a thin stripe of liner, just because...but then I screwed up and it turned into an unprepared, cat wing.
We have all been there right Beauty bloggers?
What are your thoughts on my new R.G.G Review?
What's your favourite GTA Game?

REVIEW: Soap and Glory Kickass Concealer

Sorry that vast amounts of tumbleweeds have taken to my blog lately. I haven't abandoned it- I have just been uber busy with my new job :)
However, before I head out to work I'd thought I'd leave you with this little review on this concealer that I have been loving lately. 

Now, unlike most pictures, they do look a bit 'worn'- just because I test all my products before I consider doing a review and this concealer deserves a soapbox to declare how amazing it is! 

Soap and Glory Kick-ass Concealer, £10.00 (Boots):
At first, when I hurriedly opened it- I couldn't contain my disappointment as I thought the concealer came in just a translucent powder form. 
Kinda like the ELF powdered corrector. 
However, beneath that was a eye brightener and on-spot concealer.

Its a very boastful product, with such claims as the under eye brightening concealer (the lightest concealer) contains PUFFEASE technology- which I can only assume helps reduce the puffiness around the eye area (correct me if I am wrong), the concealer claims to be SUPERWEAR light scrambling formula whilst the weightless translucent powder is made up of INSTA-FIX polymer technology. 

Is it allowed to be such a boastful product?
Well, in my opinion yes.
As you can tell, I have used this product alot. 
Its amazing, and in conjunction with the Aqua Marina cleanser, that has left my skin pretty clear and amazing, this is all I wear on my face on a typical day. 
Its a creamy consistency and applies beautifully to the skin and blends out nicely. 
And for ten pounds, I highly recommend it! 
What are your thoughts on this product?
