Waitress the Musical (Review)

Image
It’s been a while since I’ve been to London to see a musical and I have definitely missed it. The last one I went to see was Mamma Mia the Musical back in August 2017. Before I left London, I made the most of last minute tickets by going to see pretty much all the ones I wanted to. It’s easy to buy last minute tickets when you live in the city, but if you have to travel in, last minute can get expensive. If you are in London TodayTix is a great app you can use for cheap last minute tickets with good seating options. It also offers something called “Rush Tickets” where you can be placed in a daily lottery for £25 front few row seats in the Stalls…yes!
Waitress is a musical based off a film I fell in love with when I was a child. It tells the story of a young wife who becomes pregnant to a somewhat abusive husband. She finds comfort in making pies and coming up with creative recipes to describe moments in her life, for example, “I Don’t Want Earl’s Baby Pie” or “Marshmellow Mermaid Pie”…

Naked Dough (Review)

Image
I have wanted to try Naked Dough for months, ever since I first saw them advertised on Instagram so I finally got around to taking a trip to London and visit their store at Camden Town Market. There is nothing I love more than cookie dough and raw cookie dough is my favourite.

Naked Dough is raw cookie dough which is made using the same techniques as home baking. It's edible and gluten-free, vegan and probably one of the most sugary desserts. The dough can be kept in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or frozen for 12 months.
I ended up getting 4 pots so that I could take them back to my sisters for presents. You can select the dough, as well as the toppings:
Emoji Poos: vanilla dough and chocolate chips x2 Mud Bath: dark chocolate chips and cocoa cookie doughI Dough: white chocolate chips and Vanilla cookie dough You could also then add your own toppings. I chose a mix of marshmallows and lotus biscuits. 
The dough is beyond amazing! Definitely worth the trip down. I love that it's …

London, Visiting Family and Cambridge!

Image
A shorter vlog this week! I had a day trip to London, visited my sister and explored Cambridge.

I love travelling and road trips but I defintely do not like living out of a suitcase. Regardless, I had a busy few days enjoying the South of England this week.

I spent the first day of my little travelling trip in London. I drove down to near my sister's house and then parked at the train station before heading on the train to London. From there, my first stop was Camden Town. My old home and the place I've been wanting to go for months, ever since Naked Dough opened in the market! Be sure to read my review here to see if the trip was worth it.
I went to meet an old university friend from UCL at my favourite London Italian, Vapiano's. I love how casual the restaurant is and the relaxed nature of the place.
Finally, I headed to the Adelphi Theatre. Here, I watched Waitress the Muscial, again someth…

Once Upon a Time...in Hollywood (Review)

Image
Click here to watch the trailer or see below.

Once Upon a Time...In Hollywood was a trailer that stood out above all others for it's star line up and increible cast. Brad Pitt, Leonardo di Caprio and Margot Robbie. Brad and Leo are now much older and portraying characters that favour this age group. It is a little shocked as they have tended to play leading men in the past, but now they are defintely looking their ages and I think it will be interesting to see the further roles they continue to play in the future.
I'm a huge fan of Margot and have been since her days on Neighbours as Donna. I'm so proud of the work she's done since then and I'm sure she's living her best life in America. I was a little disappointed with her role in this film. Her acting was sublime and the eccentric character personality was captured perfectly. However, I think the trailer portrayed her character has having a much bigger role and in actual fact, she's not in the film all t…

Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent by Lewis Capaldi (Review)

Image
Lewis Capaldi's (no longer quite) new CD, Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent, is my latest obsession. It's by far one of my favourite debut albums in a long time. Each song is beautiful written and sung and I am obsessed with them all.

It's crazy to me that the Lewis Capaldi I follow on social media is the same person who sings these songs. He expresses a completely different persona and I find it refreshing that he stays true to his comedic side despite his huge cruise to fame.

For now, I'll be continuing to sing my heart out in the car on long road trips.

Twycross Zoo, Castle Ruins and Riverside Festival!

Image
Another busy week of fun called for Twycross Zoo, a little walk around some ruins and enjoying the Nottingham Riverside Festival. 
Click here to watch the vlog or see below.  The day after Alton Towers was thankfully a sunny, warm and beautiful day in July. It wasn't too hot but it was perfect and just what we needed after the miserable downpour of the previous day. I think it's safe to say that both L and I love animals and taking photographs. Some of these photos are actually Ls so I better give him so credit. I love walking around and looking at all the animals. It was a very peaceful day.  The little birds having a bath were cute but I had to take pictures of the flamingos for Sam and of the giraffe for Ellie.
The cutest part was seeing all the babies. There were quite a few baby monkeys, including two adorable orangutan babies who were being just as cheeky as you'd expect. They were absolutely adorable and so fun to watch them climb. Near the entrance was a huge glas…
