Hot Tub Cinema...You Remind Me of the Babe...


Oh I do love a new cinema experience and Dirty Dancing was most definitely one of the best experiences I'd had so far. So when I heard about Hot Tub Cinema, at first I laughed and thought there's no way I'm getting into a swimsuit in a social environment...there's not enough wine on the planet for that to happen. Until they advertised their 80's Cult Classics line up. Oh pants. They were only showing my ultimate favourite film of all time, Labyrinth. If there was one film that would get me into a bikini in public- this was it. Brilliant. Where do I sign up and how quickly can I get some liposuction done? Joke....

HOTW #24...Broadstairs Beach...


This week, with a windbreak, parasol and a picnic in tow, we took a rare day off as a family and headed out of London and set off for Broadstairs in Kent, once the home of Charles Dickens (for any of you literary lovers). Once there, we found a large enough patch for our mob to unpack and set up camp for the day before enjoying a picnic of egg sandwiches, strawberries and a bottle of sparkly...

Forever Living Seven Day Product Challenge...


It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of the Forever Living brand. After completing the Clean 9 Detox using a range of their Aloe Vera based products back in December last year, I was really chuffed with the results which you can read all about herehere, here, oh and most importantly the results here. Since then I've been using their Aloe Vera Jelly, but I hadn't yet tried and tested any of their other products within the brand. So when I was asked to take up the Forever Living Seven Day Product Challenge, I was excited to try out some other items in their humongous range of lifestyle products.

Fabulous Friday...


It has been once heck of a busy week sharing hot tubs with strangers, falling over in trendy bars in Shoreditch, getting attacked by giant seagulls at the beach and exploring some unique venues around London...all of which I can't wait to share with you soon on the blog and (hopefully) a vlog over on my YouTube channel. So whilst I'm off to edit a zillion photos and a ton of shameless video footage, I'll leave you with this selection of lovely things to kick start your weekend... Happy Fabulous Friday!

HOTW #23...Blackout


On occasion the Hubster and I have been known to be watching television, whilst on our phones with perhaps the odd scroll through an iPad or laptop at the same time. Conversations are broken or left unfinished and our attention is torn between various degrees of nothingness. It wasn't until a fellow blogger Hannah Maggs brought up the idea of 'Blackout' that I thought, hmmm...she is really onto something here. I mentioned here that we were planning on giving this whole 'Blackout' idea a whirl and you can read in more detail Hannah's Blackout theory in this post. But the basic concept is simple- at least one night a week, switch off and step away from all electronic devices and give each other or yourselves your full attention.

Review...Love Aroma Candles


The day we moved into our first home together will always be up there on the list of 'best days ever'. Moving day seemed to take forever to come around and after being together for almost eight years, we were more than ready to move out and start the next chapter in our lives. The day was a whirlwind of unpacking, cleaning, loading and unloading cars, 'thank yous and 'can you help mes' in the midst of a zillion trips up and down three flights of stairs. Thankfully we had a lot of helping hands and by the end of the day, sitting on the floor, eating pizza and sipping champagne, we were exhausted. But it was one of the best days- ever.

Summer Holiday Book Reviews...



I do love a good holiday reading marathon. Life is so busy that I rarely have time to read more than a chapter throughout a normal week, whereas on holiday I can read solidly for hours on end. There's nothing I love more when I'm away (other than the sun, sea and spending time with family of course) than sitting by the pool with my head in a book until the sun goes down...sociable, I know.
