Avenue Q: My experience


Hello lovely people!
So this is a bit of a different post to what i normally do but i had to share my experience with you all.
For christmas as one of my presents my parents got me two tickets to see Avenue Q as i have always loved things like the Muppets and as it had puppets in they were like, yeah she'll love it.


So the day came and i dragged my boyfriend along with me. I really didn't know what to expect, on one hand i thought will they be puppets on strings, or will you see the people holding them? I just didn't know. As the curtains came up you saw an amazing set which gave the look of a row of houses which was on Avenue Q and a man with a puppet strolls on and begins the show with the first song. Im a lover of musicals but this was no ordinary musical, as it contained songs like "The internet is for Porn" . It was definitely for the older age group as it contained swearing and also sexual content. But i have to say within the first five minutes i was in tears and fits of laughter, and after a while you stop looking at the person playing the puppet and you find yourself just fixating on the puppets face and listening to them like they were humans acting on stage. The people playing characters puppets were used for were dressed in dull colours, whilst the characters played by humans were dressed in bright normal clothes. The whole cast were extremely talented and myself and my boyfriend were blown away with the talent on that stage. Just the amount of skill that was used to move the puppets in an expressive and humanistic way was amazing.


I would tell anyone to go and see this if they like a good laugh. The show tackles real life situations that can happen and also how we feel and what we really think behind all the stereotypes. If i had to rate this show out of ten, i would have to give it 9/10 and the only reason why i would give it 9 and not 10 is because it wasn't long enough !


I hope you enjoyed my ramble about Avenue Q, and sorry to anyone who is really not interested in things like this :) Please let me know if you've seen this or your thoughts on if you want to see it or not, i would love to read them.


xoxo

Dreamland For Spring/Summer 2019 - Press Trip

It's that time of year again, DREAMLAND is open for business! I get so many questions about Margate and DREAMLAND in particular, so why not do another post for you. 

As a South Kent girl through and through, this place has a special place in my heart. Full of nostalgia, and pride of what it's like now. 
You may or may know that I've actually created two blog posts already from DREAMLAND, but wanted to give you a little update on it. I also played around with my camera and a new setting so it's a bit of experimenting too haha. 
Shall we?

Lets get the disclaimer out the way if you didn't catch it in the top right corner. I was invited to the park on this day as press, so received a free wristband, food and drink tokens. I wasn't asked to create a blog post in any way, but I always like to as you guys like it and its such a fun place to photograph. 

Now on to DREAMLAND:
I can't describe how much fun I always have when I visit this place. On this day pictured, it was…

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

Good morning and happy National Cucumber Day!

I love cucumbers! There, I said it. I like to eat them, drink them in juices and smoothies, and even like them in my skincare routine.

Over the last couple of months I've really struggled with my skin. Getting hard lumps under the skin, and rash like breakouts that were super persistent and refused to die down. I thought about whether or not I was using too many different products and clogging up my skin, or it was just down to stress or something. All I knew was that I had to give something a go and hope for it to work it's magic on my problem skin as it was getting me down.

What a day to share my love of cucumbers and my love of the Yes To Cucumber range with you cuties. Make yourself a cheese (vegan cheese if you're like myself) and cucumber sandwich and take a read about a range you'll want try! 



It may shock you to see an entire range made with cucumbers, but it's actually a pretty amazing vegetable when it comes to yo…
