    A Long Weekend in Dublin

    Ireland, the Emerald Isle. I’ve wanted to visit for absolutely years and when I was given a surprise trip for Christmas from Josh I was so excited. We headed across the Irish sea for a long weekend in Dublin last week and we loved it! Today I thought I’d give you an idea of what we managed to see and what my recommendations are if you’re heading over soon, especially considering St Patricks day isn’t that far away. Travel In terms of getting there I’d recommend flying unless of course you live over towards the ferry ports. We flew from Manchester airport and just about got there okay considering the…

    Matilda The Musical Review

    Matilda. It’s a story we all know and love, The Trunchbull is infamous and we all know the old “I’m right and you’re wrong, I’m big and you’re small, and there’s nothing you can do about it” line. How then, does this beloved Roald Dahl classic translate to the stage as Matilda the Musical? This week I was invited along to The Palace Theatre in Manchester with some fellow WeBlogNorth members to to watch Matilda The Musical*. The show is currently on it’s UK tour and is midway through it’s stint in Manchester, which began back in September and draws to a close on November 24th- so if you like the…

    North Wales: Criccieth and Snowdon

    Last week I joined my family on a short break to North Wales. I thought it might be nice to share a few photos of the stunning views and explain a little bit of what we got up to.  Criccieth We stayed in a small coastal village called Criccieth, located in the Gwynedd area.  We booked an old stone cottage called Dwyfach, which was tucked away from the crowds up a little lane. The cottage was lovely and cosy and we enjoyed playing cards and watching DVD’s in the evening (we had no choice because the Wi-Fi was piss poor) so I’d highly recommend it. Despite spending the whole of the…

    Summer Skincare Routine

    Skincare routines are nothing new to the blogosphere, I’ve read about a dozen myself just this year. However today I thought I’d throw my current summer skincare routine into the mix, because I love to read about what products work for different skin types. Not every product will suit every person, so I like to hear suggestions from other people who have dry skin. I’m going to discuss which products I use in the morning and which I leave for night time. I recently did an instagram poll asking which you would prefer to see and the result was 50/50- typical. So for a quick bit of background, I have…

    London: 4 Shows in 4 days

    Firstly I’d like to start this blog by apologising for my radio silence over the past couple of weeks. I have been so busy- more of a life update coming soon in another blog post. Anyway enough about that, you clicked this link because you want to learn about London shows. Or nosy about what I got up to over 4 days in the capital. So recently myself, my family and my boyfriend headed down to London on the train for a weekend jam packed full of west end shows and shopping to celebrate 3 of our birthdays. We were so lucky because the weather was divine the whole time…
