Having recently had the words ‘Disney event’ in my inbox and squealing with excitement, you can only imagine my reactions to ‘MAC and Disney event.’ Needless to say I was immediately excited and booking my train. London events always kill my bank balance but seen as my chronic pain has been playing up so much, I couldn’t resist making a special exception. Disney Theatrical Productions and MAC Cosmetics teamed up as MAC are the Official Makeup Partner at The Lion King and Aladdin, and it was quite the event! It started off with a talk in the Prince Edward Theatre before heading to the main stage. This theatre is absolutely stunning and it was so amazing to see it empty so we could really appreciate its…

It appears that I’ve had a blogging break, without actually wanting, planning, or realising. November is always a busy month for me as it’s my birthday! I know that seems odd, the entire month is busy because of one day? But yes. I like to celebrate for the entire month! Diva indeed. I can’t actually remember when this started but I think it’s been a few years now, maybe 3/4 and I have no doubt that it’s because usually we’re at a family Christmas party. You’re probably reading this thinking I’ve messed my meds up, but my dad’s family always have a Christmas party on the last weekend of November. It’s a tradition that’s been going over 30 years. A tradition that for 22 years…

The Spa at The Midland Manchester is quite honestly the best spa I have ever been to. What you’re about to read is the most glowing review I will probably ever write…. The day started off absolutely terribly but as soon as we arrived into the very grand lobby at The Midland, we knew we were into a treat. Down the elevators and to the spa entrance, which immediately spelt of relaxation and the perfect ‘spa’ smell, you know the one, lavender galore. The entrance was very spa, dim lights, cool toned walls, plants, velvet seating area. It was ticking all of my boxes immediately. Within seconds of talking to the staff you realised it was one of those spas where everyone is just so…

One of my favourite places in Sheffield is the Mercure St Paul’s Hotel and Spa. We started going there after trying out a spa day offer and after falling in love with the place, I found another offer that blew us away for value. Since then Alfie and I have returned back to the Mercure every couple of months. Spas for me are essential, I’m a complete workaholic with a body that hates working, so getting to switch off is something I rarely do! Unfortunately our last stay didn’t go to plan as the lift to the spa wasn’t working and I can’t walk up and down stairs anymore without intense pain, therefore rendering a spa day absolutely pointless. Last weekend we finally got to revisit and…

Every since booking a spontaneous family holiday, my life has revolved around the holiday and looking/feeling the best on it. Which also includes holiday preparation! Mostly this year it’s been all about trying to make my legs look and feel as smooth as possible because I’m mostly going to be in swimwear. We have a pool and the beach is at the bottom of the road we’re staying on so life is going to be super hard. Being part mermaid means the water calls to me and so I’ve been using Fenjal Unique Cleansing and Moisturising Shower Oil 200ml at £5.49, as bath oil! I know, messy, but glorious. It means that my skin has a layer of moisture and that should last up to 8 hours. I…
