5 things: Life


It's been a pretty crazy time for me at the moment and blogging has taken a bit of a back seat. Everything seems to have come around at once and I seem to be juggling quite a bit, so I thought it would be good to let you guys know what I've been up to in the form of a 5 things post.

1. I recently went to Alcudia with three of my closest girlfriends and I had an amazing time. We managed to get a really good deal at the start of the year and the date finally arrived last week. We had lots of cocktails, beach time and of course laughs and it was bliss. It was so relaxing and nice not to have to worry about anything. However I've only been back a week and I already feel busy again because ....

2. We go to Mexico in 2 weeks! Anthony and I said that we were going to have a small holiday this year, due to

Ere Perez Volumising Waterproof Mascara

Ere Perez Volumising Waterproof Mascara

I came across the Ere Perez Volumising Waterproof Mascara whilst looking for a natural, cruelty free mascara. Apparently a natural mascara that's volumising and lengthening is pretty hard to find. Most of the mascaras that I saw were for a more natural look, which isn't the look I tend to go for with my lashes.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

Our weekend in London was a while a go now (over 2 months ago to be more exact) but I still wanted to share it with you guys nevertheless. Over 18 months ago Anthony booked tickets for us to go and watch Harry Potter and the Cursed Child at the Palace Theatre. I'm a massive Harry Potter fan in case you didn't know (fun fact: Anthony actually proposed in the Great Hall at the Harry Potter Warner Bros Studio Tour!) and when the tickets came out Anthony spent 2 hours in the queue to book tickets for us. I wasn't in too much of a rush to see it so we decided to book it well in advance and make a weekend of it. We go to London quite a lot on day trips but had never stayed before and now was the perfect opportunity. Grab a cuppa cause this is gonna be a long one!

We got the train down on Friday morning, after rush hour and arrived early afternoon at Euston. Our hotel was the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hampshire Hotel in Leicester Square and it was the perfect location for the weekend. We
