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

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…

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 I use on a rotation and not all at the same time. My skin enjoys it when it swap aroun…
