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

For The Love Of Cucumbers and Skincare

AD with Yes To 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

*This post features an advertorial with P'URE Papaya Lips Hi, hey, how are ya? It's been a while I know, and I'm sorry. I needed some time to settle into freelance life (which, I'm loving btw), and just some time to get into the new swing of things you know.  So anyway, that can be saved and chucked into a separate blog post (let me know if you fancy that).  Over on Instagram I've been sharing the odd product here and there over the last few months regarding skincare, as my skin went super dry as soon as the seasons and weather changed. My skin was flaking it was that dry, and my lips were red raw and went without lipstick as I couldn't bare to put anything on them at all. Thankfully I ended up creating a nice little routine....more on that in a bit, and found some new must haves for hydrating and softening the skin and lips.  Lets start from the bottom to the top ey? I like being awkward! And, before we get stuck in, these are all products

Cruelty Free Living Products And Where To Find Them

A super sunny good day to you beauties!  Welcome to my first of many cruelty free living posts I've wanted to do for such a long time now, and I've finally planned them and can't wait to hopefully inspire some of you to make a simple change to support the unfair testing and use of animals. The most common thing I hear back from people is "it's going to be expensive" or "that's so much effort", well it's actually not and the only effort you need to put in is to just pick up a different bottle *holds head in hands. It's that simple.  Over the last two years I've been gradually replacing items in my home with cruelty free alternatives to get to the point I'm at today. The majority of you guys like me, go to one store for the bulk of your weekly/monthly shop, however I've grown to enjoy searching for cruelty free products and options so am now a bit of a shop hopper.  When I think of the places I like to hit up th
