Ferris Wheel London

IT’S CHRISTMAS EVE! My blog has seriously lacked Christmas posts this December and I’m sorry about that! Whilst it looks like I’ve been a bit of a scrooge, I’ve actually being gallivanting to try and visit as many Christmas markets as I can. The best part about a Christmas market for me is the twinkly lights, the jolly atmosphere and the hearty food! I don’t tend to buy an awful lot from the markets as I usually get most of my gifts online but I love to take in the festive atmosphere nonetheless. This year I’ve visited local markets such as the Stewart Park Frost Fair and the Luxury Christmas Fayre at Gisborough Hall as well as markets further afield like the Berlin Christmas markets and Winter Wonderland in London which is what I’m talking about today.

Berlin christmas decorations at the markets

Today’s post was supposed to be one to get people in the Christmas spirit and for me to reflect on the amazing trip I had to Berlin last month. Unfortunately this post is overshadowed by the horrific terror attack that took place at the Christmas market in Breitscheidplatz on Monday night. After being at that exact market just three weeks ago, it sends chills through me and has really stopped me in my tracks for writing what was supposed to be an exciting post. Whilst in Berlin, the capital of Germany, it felt like one of the safest cities I’ve ever been to. My heart goes out to the poor victims who were wrongly killed so close to Christmas and to all who were injured. I wish the cruelty in this world would just stop; just when you think we’re over the worst, something else comes along to cause more tragedy.  View Post

Hammersmith Apollo

This time last week me and my mam were heading down to London for the Royal Variety Performance at the Eventim Apollo in Hammersmith. My mam attends the show every year and this year she asked me to go along with her. This year was the first time that she bought tickets to the after show party too, and let me tell you, it was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced! Today I’m going to give you an insight into the show (I won’t be going into too much depth about the show as I don’t want to spoil it for anybody!).  View Post

I’ve always avoided false eyelashes because I’ve never been able to grasp how to apply them correctly. In the past I’ve had a hard time fiddling around sticking my fingers together and having the eyelashes irritate the corner of my eyes. The guys from FalseEyelashes.co.uk kindly sent me a couple of pairs to try  to see if they could convert me to the other side.  View Post

Kissed by Mii fake tan from 25o

These frosty mornings are really taking their toll now and my skin is drier and paler than it’s ever been. Despite loving the seasons of autumn and winter, I hate how pale the cold makes me. Bronzed skin doesn’t come naturally to me so I’m always looking for ways to fake it and enhance my teeny-tiny, barely noticeable holiday tan. Like most people, I always feel happier and more body confident when I’ve got sun-kissed skin so from time to time I whip out the false tan in an attempt to feel good again.  View Post
