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.

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
