DAY TRIPPERS – SCARBOROUGH & THE CHARLATANS.

On Friday 16th June I cashed in some owed lieu hours and took the day off work so the boyfriend and I could go on a little seaside adventure pre-Charlatans gig in Scarborough. We set off just before dinnertime and drove over with a banging playlist of indie / alternative summertime tunes (courtesy of moi)….

IN BLOOM

It’s more or less summer now in England, which means sometimes we get consecutive sunshine and sometimes we get wind and pouring rain. This past week has been a mixed bag which makes outfit choosing in a morning pretty tricky, thankfully the majority of the weekend was pleasant.  Sunday was especially lovely, such warm weather…

Some days it’s baking hot and some have felt like they belong in mid-February (oh how British of me, talking about the…

THE EXPERIMENTER REVIEW

I very recently reviewed Lush’s Intergalictic bath bomb – which you can read here, and next up in the spotlight is ‘The Experimenter’. I’m a little late to the Lush bath bomb party but I’d heard and seen very good things about this particular product so I was very excited to try it. Lush describe…

INTERGALACTIC REVIEW

So I thought I’d take the plunge and dip my toe into the universe that is Lush bathbombs. Bath time for me is more like an event, baths are the only way I can unwind, de-stress and calm my mind after a busy day so I felt it was only right to add a little…
