Happy Festive Friday

December 23, 2016

Ah this pic makes me feel super festive. I am really excited for Christmas this year and really the only thing missing is some snow! Don’t think there is much chance of that though unfortunately!

Have a fabulously festive Friday and wonderful Christmas and I shall be back in the New Year xx

Autumn is Here & I’m Ready for Winter

October 27, 2016

After a very boringly mild September (and most of October) we are at last seeing signs of Autumn. I love the colder seasons of Autumn and Winter and so as soon as September arrives I am ready for roaring fires and cosy jumpers – although I usually have to wait a bit longer than that unfortunately!

Anyway, now Autumn is here, the pretty ponies and floral smells don’t seem quite right in the house and so I have been shopping for some more seasonal bits and pieces…

I love The White Company all year round but it is especially fabulous at this time of year with its gorgeous candles, fragrances, throws and cashmere. I love their Winter fragrance range and so bought the large candle and diffuser – my house smells beautifully festive!

How about you – what are you doing to get ready for Autumn and Winter? Or are you one of those still hanging on to summer for dear life?!

Phobophobia – The Ventriloquists Nightmare

October 25, 2016

So last week I went to a special Halloween event at the London Bridge Experience called Phobophobia – The Ventriloquists Nightmare.

It is meant to terrify you (in a fun way!) and it certainly did do that! I love a good horror film and so I would not say I scared easily, but my heart was racing, I had sweaty palms and even though you know it’s not real it is still scary!

You are taken deep down under London Bridge and into the London Tombs (which is exciting in itself) and you are taken on a hellish trip through over 2000 years of terrifying history. It takes a good 20 – 30 minutes to walk (or run!) around the whole thing (is all 1 way) and it is a trip to bash all of the senses – there is music, scary sounds, screaming, smoke, horrible smells, scary clowns, a room full of white mannequins where the odd one suddenly comes to life, chainsaw wielding madmen and lots more! I loved it, haha!

They also had rescue snakes there on the evening I went and they were a great addition. Not scary for me though as I quite like snakes! This guy was super friendly and very chilled out…

A blogger/press event is not an event without a photobooth and they did not disappoint! There were loads of fab props and my photographer friend Jemma Watts and I got properly involved, as you do…

I would definitely recommend a visit here – it was so much fun, even if I was terrified! Just don’t go alone…

You can book tickets online here via AttractionTix, although be quick as it finishes on 31 October.

Jo Malone – Jo Loves

October 11, 2016

The best thing about being ill and staying home (just tonsillitis, nothing serious!) is that you get to watch day time TV! I am sure that novelty would soon wear off but for the few days I was ill last week, I loved it. This Morning in particular is great, with Holly and Phil!

Anyway, whilst I was watching This Morning there was an interview with Jo Malone who was there to promote her new autobiography, My Story. Jo was talking about her life and how her battle with cancer led to her selling Jo Malone to Estee Lauder – a decision she very quickly regretted.

Following the sale Jo has been restricted in terms of what new ventures she could pursue, which is obviously a problem when the brand she sold holds her actual name! She was talking about all of that in the interview, which was so interesting – I am definitely getting the book.

Another thing I found fascinating was when she was talking about her magical sense of smell! She was saying that it is normal for people in her line of work to be able to pick out a specific flower used in a perfume – but she can tell you where it grew and when it was picked (amongst other things!) just by the smell! Crazy!

Happily, Jo does now have a new venture and it is as fabulous as the last – Jo Loves – “an innovative new scent, bath, body and candle collection inspired by the memories and moments in life that she loves.”

Visit the Jo Loves shop on Elizabeth Street, London where Jo had her first job as a florist when she was just 16 years old! No 42 The Flower Shop fragrance is a celebration of that fact…

I have always been a massive Jo Malone fan and always have a candle in the house. Can see myself heading that way with Jo Loves too now!

Have a lovely morning and I shall be back soon xx
