Food and the West End

So a bit of a different Monday post as spontaneously myself and Tony booked last minute tickets to see Charlie and the Chocolate Factory the musical in London Saturday and felt like it would be nice to share my day and my thoughts. It's a musical we've wanted to see for a while now and was on our 2015 to do list. * Sighs as it feels so good to tick something off. Spending a day in London we had to naturally eat at an amazing restaurant too. Heres how my Saturday went:

Food: 
I've heard Anna, Lily and Suzie go one about this place so it had to be experiences. Homeslice was the choice for dinner and I am so happy we went. A lovely intimate place with few tables and a nice set of staff, it has such a lovely welcoming feel and obviously.....great food. A 20inch pizza that can be half and half or just one topping, we were in heaven and they were great with allergy help. I had a cheeky glass of wine which comes in a huge bottle, you drink how much you want and they measure it at the end, which is so dangerous. This is an awesome restaurant, takeaway place that all pizza lovers MUST visit!

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory the musical:
Being a performing arts teacher I tend to watch things in a different way to others, and think technically  and can be very judgemental. I had seen a program maybe last year all about the creation of this musical and had very mixed thoughts on it. I had also read some reviews that were very mixed so went in with a completely clear mind.

From start to finish it had me so interested and was fixated that before I knew it, it was the interval. So many comedy sections which had the audience laughing out loud, children and adults and is all round a great family musical. There were some parts that left you slightly confused like the feeling when coming out of a magic show and were simply just very cleaver. They used one of the most amazing set designs I've ever seen which was so cleaver and really helped to transport you to the wonderful factory itself. The wow's and the ooooo's you heard from the audience the first time you saw the chocolate room was amazing. I had been quite good and hadn't looked up any of the songs before hand and was pleasantly surprised at how catchy and well written the songs were *which I have now downloaded by the way. I probably would go and see it again however am in no rush to go back but all in all was a great musical and very very enjoyable.

Over all an awesome Saturday!
Hope you guys had an alright Monday (as alright as it can be)

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

How To Read More & What I Read In May

*gifted items and affiliate links Hi mates, it's been a while!  So, I've had quite a few requests to create a blog post all about how I read so much. Don't get me wrong there are loads of people out there that read way more than me. But I average 4 books a month, however with lockdown in the UK I've been able to rack up my monthly average.  Let's just jump straight in to how I read as much as I do. 1 ~ Choose books you WANT to read This sounds super obvious, however I myself have been known to follow book trends and pick up a book because it's all over the gram, or because my favourite influencer has told me to read it. Doing so can result in books you just don't get in the flow of reading and books you don't want to actively pick up.  Know what genres you like to read. Know what authors you like and do some digging to make sure you pick wisely. Sometimes you will be disappointed with a book that you feel you should of enjoye

Easy To Make Zero Waste Coffee Body Scrub

I'm back on this blogging hype and I'm feeling super inspired to get my space of the internet up and running again. Basically I thought I knew what I was doing in the back end of my blog (theme, settings etc) and for a few months I couldn't do anything until my friends life saver boyfriend sorted it for me! So, lets jump into a cosmetic, zero waste body care at home post and something I'm loving using in my daily shower routine.  It doesn't cost the earth, makes your skin ultra soft, and all you need are things from the kitchen cupboard.   I don't know if you've seen the companies selling coffee scrub or very similar products for around £6 and up, so making something like this thats fresh and uses up a waste bi-product and cupboard essentials means you're saving money as well as saving the purchase of a product!  Items I use in my homemade body scrub: * Coffee Grounds * Coconut Sugar 4tbp * Vanilla Extract 3tsp First things first, the co
