Do you think I have achieved my challenge?
So …. someone said that I was unable of writing a blog about absolutely anything, so not wanting to prove this statement right I undertook a challenge - for this individual to name something and for me to write 200 words on it! To my surprise, the word that came out of their mouth was ‘cheese’ (random I know). At first I thought it would be impossible to write something fun and...
The Lion King in the West End
I was fortunate enough to be seated in the fourth row of the stalls at The Lion King in the breath-taking Lyceum Theatre in London on the 4th of July and I must say it was truly mesmerising! The opening sequence brought tears to my eyes as I watched all the stunning animals gather around me and take their places on stage. From start to finish I was completely engrossed in the story, even though...
Londoners are always too busy to sit down to eat!
I started my internship with National Geographic Kids Magazine yesterday and I noticed that no one sits down when they eat! It’s like some sort of culture that everyone is too busy to take time out in their day to partake in the most crucial part of our daily lives! Us Londoners constantly have to be somewhere and soon! Personally though I think there’s nothing better than a delicious...
Product review for Clinique – Stay-matte oil-free...
I received a free sample in my weekly magazine which I was overjoyed about since my current foundation is running low and I haven’t yet decided which one to choose. It promises to help control the oil breakthrough for women suffering oily or combination skin, leaving a matt and flawless finish all day long. The shade was ‘Neutral’ which I automatically knew would be too dark for my skin –...

How amazing are these shoes?!?!?!?
This month I stumbled upon what I think are an absolutely stunning pair of heels! Now ladies, don’t forget to keep breathing … Behold … They can be found in Beyonce’s video Let’s Move Your Body. Not only is this an amazing song with an amazing dance routine (that is a definite must watch and attempt!) but these gorgeous Louboutin’s complete my month! At...
Two Monkeys Die At Harvard University Research... →
socialismartnature: Harvard University has killed an average of 1 monkey every 4 months over the past year and a half (sometimes in brutal ways, as in the case of the monkey that died when its cage was put through an industrial cage-cleaner with the monkey still inside). This needs to stop. === Two monkeys have died at the Harvard Medical School’s New England Primate Research Center in the...
tumblrbot asked: WHAT MAKES YOU FEEL BETTER WHEN YOU ARE IN A BAD MOOD?
Is it a good sign that I share such odd...
In one of my previous posts titled ‘A wedding planner ….. to be or not to be? That is the question!’ I discussed how people seemed to be putting my dreams and ambitions down when they really have no right to. I also said how I was reading Confessions of a Wedding Planner by Tamryn Kirby in the hope that it would either boost my confidence in the knowledge that I would be able to...
Want to know the magic that is making croissants?
On Thursday I saw how all butter croissants are made and its absolutely fascinating! The Hungry Sailors is a new cookery programme that has just started on ITV and I am hooked! If I was asked prior to watching this how I thought they were made I would probably have said they first make a basic style pastry, mould it into the half moon shape they are famous for, make the slanted lines in the top to...
A wedding planner ..... to be or not to be? That...
For the past few years I’ve had a fixation on becoming a wedding planner. I’m forever watching wedding related programmes, reading the mags and have been to a couple of wedding fayres too just to see what all the fuss is about and I truly love everything idyllic and fantasy around someones “dream day”. However, recently I’ve faced people that have told me how...
Is it ok for bus drivers to make personal calls on...
On my bus journey to work yesterday, the driver repeatedly pulled over (whether it be at a bus stop or not regardless of whether any travellers were getting on or off) to answer his phone?!?!?! Now I know that commonly bus drivers have to wait at bus stops as they are ahead of schedule but surely taking personal calls should not be allowed??? I made the presumption that it must be a male thing and...
