Revisiting Dreamland | Lifestyle



When I was a kid, I used to spend so many of my summer days down in Dreamland with friends and family, spending hours on rides like the Waltzers and Skymaster (definitely was my favourite and held you upside down for what felt like hours). Yesterday myself and the fam went down to have a look at how they'd updated it and to have a bit of a trip down memory lane.



When walking around the park, it felt just like a smaller Thorpe Park. It didn't have the same old Dreamland feel that I remembered. Things were in different places and at first I was stubborn and thought 'well this just isn't Dreamland'. After a sitting down, having some water and taking it all in my thoughts changed and instantly loved the new look land of dreams. They have made it out in such a cool and retro way, everything looking very instagramable and pinterest worthy (except the grey sky).


Dreamlands food area had so much to offer! Snacks warm and cold, meals, drinks and treats. They'd clearly thought about it a lot, and coming from someone who finds it hard to eat out, I was impressed. Within this area was a bandstand which had a band playing live music which just gave it a really nice summery vibe.


After our trip to Dreamland we decided to head out to the beach and have a walk seen as the weather had changed for the better. There was quite a lot of people on the beach having BBQs or just sitting on blankets and chairs chatting. It is such a nice beach and is so big that you'll be guaranteed a space (if you turn up on a sunny day before 10am).

A trip to Margate isn't complete without popping into the Seaside Cake Parlour. All food is plant based with vegan and gluten free options (the little ones). I ate two yesterday and have saved the rest today as I'm gardening all day and will be in need of energy boosts throughout the day.

I've had such a lovely weekend and hope you guys did too. Time spent exploring old and new places can be so satisfying, and just getting out of the house for a walk can do wonders. If you've not been down to Margate yet I advise you do so soon before the weather permanently changes its mind. 

Have a lovely week! And comment on this post telling me what you got upto this weekend.

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…
