Festive Food Fun

P1190574

It has become tradition in my friendship group to have an early christmas where we can stuff ourselves silly and laugh till the early hours before we all leave to go back to our home towns. I am always the host because well I enjoy playing the hostess.

Dress – H&M|Shoes – Amazon.

I wore this gorgeous dress from H&M; I love how it clings to your waist and then kicks out, it’s the perfect festive dress that you can keep in your wardrobe for other special occasions.

We feasted on baked camembert, turkey with pigs in blankets drowned in gravy finishing ourselves off with a hand decorated gingerbread house all cooked by myself. If you are looking for festive food then I got all these goodies (bar the gingerbread house) from ASDA.

I would be lost without these gorgeous girls and cannot wait for more fun adventures in 2015.

Christmas at Kew

P1190430

As soon as you step into Christmas at Kew you feel like Alice stepping into Wonderland.

P1190459P1190484

Wrap up warm because it is an outdoor event but a few mulled beverages should help you along the way.

P1190504

Christmas at Kew is a walk through the beautiful gardens where illuminating installations create stunning sights for both children and adults.

P1190477P1190491P1190467P1190464

Along the way there is a fun fair, various food and drink stalls and my favourite huge marshmallows to toast over fires whilst watching miniature plays.

I went for the Raspberry&Gin flavour and OMGoodness it was amazing!

Late Night Museum Trips

If you’re not in the festive spirit yet then hopefully this post will give you hand. Recently my sister surprised my mum and I by coming to stay for a few days and we took the opportunity to have an afternoon and evening in London.

P1190279P1190285

In amongst the twinkling trees lies the magnificent Natural History Museum and on the last friday of every month they have a light night opening with music, food and drink. The museum is free to enter although some of the exhibitions are ticketed.

P1190319P1190313P1190322

We had booked tickets to go and view the Wildlife Photographer of the Year exhibition; something that we visit every year and as always I was so impressed by the gorgeous photographs of the world and the animals around us. However I was rather disappointed that so many people were snapping photos on their smart phones – with a no photography rule and a lovely selection of postcards on sale it really ruined the atmosphere.

After the photography exhibition I pulled my mum and sister round the dinosaur display (secret dino geek) with the museum being open after hours I felt a little like I was in The Night at the Museum and was waiting for the skeletons to start moving.

A short walk down the road lit up by Harrods we nattered over orange hot chocolates in Costa before setting off home.

Are you feeling festive?

Insta Life

I haven’t posted many insta photos on my blog for ages so I thought I would share a few good memories with y’all.

Kicking things off with two photos from Delamar; mermaid hair done by my friend Jen and a blonde Marilyn wig done by me!

Who doesn’t love a good food photo: delicious burger at Maggies in Ealing and salmon&watercress risotto cooked by me.

Two amazing nights out, one with my old school friends and another with my hilarious work mates!

Changing Faces

If you follow me on both of my Instagrams Personal or Professional then you may know that I have recently been doing a little bit of prosthetics and I thought that I would  share some photos with you because well it’s not something you get to do on a day to day basis.

P1190006

We created the whole prosthetic from scratch including designing, sculpting and pouring the silicone into the mould to create our old lady face prosthetics.

P1190002P1190003

It was a days worth of work and I am so thankful to the wonderful Hannah who was my model as she had to sit still for absolutely ages!

P1190026P1190027

The concept of my piece was an old hippy who had been to Glastonbury a few too many times and I am pretty proud at how it turned out.

P1190038

P1190014

I don’t want to go into prosthetics as a career but I feel so lucky to have had the chance to step away from beauty make up and get down and dirty with a ton of clay, silicone and glue to create a whole piece. If you ever get the opportunity to do it I would highly recommend it, it’s stressful but so worth it!

A Spooky Day at Disneyland Paris

P1180331As an extra little birthday present K and I set off for a little spooky day trip to Disneyland.

P11803201939541_10152825439472244_5828990635819690855_nP1180354P1180353P1180358

The weather was fantastic and after a very early start we finally got into Disneyland just before lunchtime and raced to join the ridiculously long queue for Crushes Coaster in the Studios. After hurtling around at top speed we made our way back to the Park and like we do every year gazed at the castle. I seriously want to live here.


P1180359

After taking the usual snaps the first parade of the day occurred and yes I made my way to the front like a stroppy little child to wave and squeal at all my favourite characters.

P1180393P1180411P1180379

Due to the release of Maleficent earlier in the year the courtyard of the castle had been taken over by Maleficent and her court this was super cool to see all the villains out and about and they were interacting with everyone a lot more than they did last year.

P1180554P1180442

Not only were the villains out to play but Jack and Sally were having a meet and greet, they were so super sweet and chatted to everyone. I am always amazed at how many languages the cast members can speak!

1978305_10152825466162244_6621029405377988671_o

We ended the day watching the afternoon parade which is always my favourite part.

P1180537P1180527P1180546P1180561P1180570

Sadly after such a fun day we got stranded in Paris and had to wend our way back to the UK on a coach, but that’s a story for another time.
