Bodyform New Advert Shows Period Like Blood – About Bloody Time!

Look how far we’ve come guys ….. The first ever sanitary towel advert to show period blood has been released by Bodyform! Turns out we don’t bleed blue gel or water like they normally show in other sanitary towel adverts, who knew?! 

I am still confused as why it took so long for this to be shown when women have been bleeding every month since the start of time. Why is it such a taboo? But let’s focus on the positive, there’s growth. The advert was so well done and even have the famous shower that we all go through with blood going down your legs. It doesn’t show all the dirty nitty but no one needs to see that anyways. 

Here is the video:

Celeb Gossip: September Recap 

It is just us or was the celebrity world full of drama last month? There literally something happening everyday! Here is a recap on everything that happened in the US. Get the popcorn ready because it gets juicy! 

 Kevin Hart Cheating scandal

This is has to be the juiciest drama of year! It was a normal day until Kevin uploaded a video apologising to his wife and kids and claiming he was being blackmailed for millions. The internet went crazy trying to figure out what was happening but not for long! A video of Kevin having sex with another woman was released. He was not playing games in that video from what could be heard. I could not believe my eyes. How can Kevin do this to his pregnant wife? His rib (that’s what he calls her)? I am not sure how old the video is but it was after they got married.

But the gag is … Kevin’s ex wife always accused his current wife Eniko of sleeping with him whilst he was still married. This might be true as Eniko and Kevin celebrated their 8 years anniversary not too long ago but Kevin has only been divorced for just under six years. Hmmm shady much? They do say you lose them how you get them!

Kim and Kanye’s surrogate revealed
Pictures of the Kim’s surrogate has finally been released! It was reported by TMZ that she is due in January. What are your thoughts on Kim using a surrogate for her third child? Would you do it if you had the money?

Apparently she’s having a girl! All the Kylie fans have already made photoshoped pictures of her to show us what she will look like with a bump. Are you as excited as the internet about this news?
Serena Williams welcomes baby girl

This is not news but I am super happy for Serena. She seems so genuine so we just glad that she’s living her life and she’s happy. Congratulations Serena girl!

Name of dish: BBQ Wings

Price: £6.95

Score out of 10: 8/10

“Crispy, coated/smothered in a Smokey BBQ sauce.Packed with flavour. Sweet, but not too sweet, Tangy after taste.

Hand wipes, highly recommended.”

Would you recommend it? Yes, as it’s a good starter to share between 2 people.

Name of dish: Baby Back Ribs 

Price: £17.95

Very Meaty, tender, easy to cut. Smokey flavour, sweet but not too sweet. Slightly spicy with a peppery kick. 

Very generous portion (3 portions)

I could not eat all the ribs as I needed to make room for my dessert, so I took the remainder home. 

Would you recommend it?  Yes, the portion size was very generous. The ribs could easily share between 2 people. Good value for money. 
Score out of 10: 9/10

Name of dish: Old School (Burger) 

Price: £11.95
Ordered a well – done burger and received a well-done burger, so I was happy with that. The burger size was decent and tasted flavorsome. The special sauce was packed with flavor. My only call out was the fries portion that comes with the burger. It should be bigger as I had to order a side of fries to go with the main meal. (Side of fries: £3.95)

Would you recommend it?  Yes, as it was tasty and meaty.
Score out of 10: 8/10

 Additional Information: Received lovely customer service from Arianna (Pm). I just wanted to say a massive (Thank You), as good customer service is important. I will be visiting again. See you soon Team Maxwell’s!”
