So I wanted to try another new dish, and I decided to try this as it sounded nice.

For me this was just a so so dish, the chicken for me was a little dry but the sauce was very nice.

For me this was ok, but I wouldn’t have it again mostly due to the chicken for me was just a little to dry.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 3.5

Value for Money : 4

Overall

A balanced visit today of some really good chicken with some ok chicken.

I cant wait to have the Yam Yam Chicken Wings again.

L’Oreal Studio Line 6 vs Fudge Urban Matte Wax 8 : Review

IMG_6503 (1)

So I am trying a few new things this year with regards to blogging, and Vlogging, and this is one of the many new things.

I use products and on a regular basis, one that I use daily is hair wax so I thought why not blog about it and share my experience.

I am not Mr Knowledgeable when it comes to things like this, so for me its trail and error. I would like to try more products and see what they are like, but right now it cost and playing safe till I have some money to play with.

So this review will be for two products, one that I have used for a while and one that I recently tried and the reason why I decided to try it.

Urban Fudge (Strength 8) :

As you have possibly seen from my many Instagram pictures, I like my hair short and spiked up.

I first tried the number 5 strength and thought nah this isn’t for me, but I decided to see if 8 was any better and it was MUCH!!! better for me.

This is really good! if your after a strong hold, one that could even last through the night and next day (if you don’t wash it out at night) then this is for you)

My only problem is the cost of this, this roughly lasts one month for me and its around £7. Yeah thats not much but £7 every month…..

You can get this on offer at SuperDrug which is good as its basically buy one get one free, but its difficult to know when they have it without stopping in store loads.

L’Oreal Studio Line 6

So I mentioned cost was a thing for me, so I decided to try this as it said it was a strong hold and L’Oreal get a good name.

On opening its a very different style of wax to Urban, its more smooth and closer to a gel but not a gel.

I put a little on and put it through my hair, it felt slightly wet the texture but I thought this might start to harden in a few minutes so I left it.

After an hour it still had the same look and feel, it didn’t get any harder so I thought ok lets see how this is over the course of a day.

For me this was just ok, it didn’t have the hold I wanted and over the course of the day. What I did notice is that after washing my hair in the morning, and drying it…it still felt like some wax was in my hair and I use a good shampoo and very warm water.

Overall :

Overall I think I will stick with Urban Fudge, as it seems to have the hold I want.

If your looking for a strong hard hold/texture for your hair go with Fudge, but if you want a soft hold use the L’Oreal.

If you know of any that is similar, and has similar hold and maybe cheaper please do let me know I am always wanting to try new things.

NY American Grill (Glasgow) : Review

NY American Grill Glasgow Review (6)

Princes Square
48 Buchanan Street
Glasgow G1 3JN, UK

I have been here a few times, but never done a review.

Today I decided I needed a burger fix and thought lets try here, and do a little review while I am at it.

Inside Princess Square for me is always very nice and relaxing, the atmosphere is great even just for a little walk about.

Time for the burger…

The Food…

Main Course

The Smoakhouse Burger £12.95
American cheese, smokes bacon and BBQ sauce

IMG_4806

On arrival this looked very good and my mouth instantly started to water.

This was a very juicy and flavoursome burger, everything about it was very good. The BBQ sauce worked very well with the beef, and I enjoyed every mouthful.

I would happily have this again.

Portion Size : 5
Flavour : 5
Presentation : 5
Value for money : 5

Red Rudolph Cocktail £6.50
Absolut Vodka, Strawberry Liquer, Cranberry and Lime

IMG_4802.jpg

This is a special Christmas cocktail, so I am not sure if they will have something similar on the menu in the New Year (I hope they do).

This was a really good cocktail, I could have easily had many more but I was being a good boy today.

Overall

I am glad I visited NY American Grill again, as the atmosphere and the food was very good today. I wouldn’t say it was the best burger in Glasgow, but its at least in my top 4 places.

See you soon guys.
