Dreamland Margate | The Re-Launch Of Thanets Very Own Theme Park


The weather couldn't have been more perfect for the re-launch of Dreamland Margate. After having money pumped in and reopened last year (and I did a blog post here), the theme park has had even more funding to make it even more amazing. And I have to say, I was really taken back when I walked through the entrance as to how incredible this place had become.

Myself and Siobhan attended the evening as press and were kindly given drinks tokens, food tokens and a ride wristband for us to be able to experience everything on offer and share with you guys. Every now and again I had to remind myself that I was in Margate as I often found myself drift into a state that I find myself in when at a festival or abroad. The atmosphere was fun, safe and exciting with bright colours and performance artists everywhere. So here's a few pictures I took from the re-launch and defo go and watch Siobhans video


As well as the attractions and eye catching installations that were there last year, there were even more bright and fun things to see and do. Performance artists were greeting you at the entrance and moving around the park on micro scooters. It just added to the overall feel and helped the environment to remain buzzing. 



Artist Tracey Emin turned the new Dreamland sign on and once inside the oldest surviving theme park in country, even more quirky signs and large letters were spread around the site which are all so Instagram worthy. We both found ourselves snapping every few steps and constantly stopping to get that gram candid shot. 




Now on to a topic I'm super passionate about........food. In terms of free from and vegan food etc, there were two huts to actually advertise those diet requirements. All of the other foods I found to be fast food and meat orientated, like fish and chips, hot dogs etc. This next comment isn't just aimed at Dreamland but most places like this. Even though there's a boom in the healthy food industry and everyone and their mum has an allergy or has some sort of requirement, so you'd think there would be a wide range of different types of food in these places. I was happy to see one hut displaying what is classed as healthy food and then a candy floss hut which was freeform as you know, it's just sugar. 




I had even more fun this time round in comparison to last year. Having visited this theme park since I was so young and spent hours going back and forth from the Skymaster to the Waltzers, it was fantastic to experience the park again. BTW local peeps, who remembers Skymaster? Loved that ride!

Something that Dreamland has brought in this time thats a new edition is the capacity to hold live music events. Bands such as The Gorillaz have already played there which was a sell out. I'm yet to experience this quality that Dreamland has, but it's something I'll definitely do when the right band is there.

As the sun set on what was a day filled with laughter, drinks, being tapped by papers and interviewed by the BBC I felt so happy that somewhere like Dreamland had been given some TLC. This is exactly what it's needed and I urge you all to head down during the summer for a fun filled day or weekend away. Obv let me know if you go and holla at me on twitter or insta and we could meet up!

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…
