Notting Hill Carnival – dancing and rum at the Good Times Bus

So this time last week I was dancing in the streets along with hundreds of thousands of other people, at the Notting Hill Carnival. What a day it was. As it does every year right on cue, the sun was shining and spirits were high.

Surprisingly although being on my doorstep all my life, I hadn’t been to the carnival since I was a kid. Having had a bad reputation for years, I’d avoided it and often went out of town for the August bank holiday instead. But having lived in Manchester for nearly 2 years now and with my folks moving out of my childhood home soon, it felt right to go back to my roots and spend my bank holiday Sunday at the Notting Hill Carnival.Continue reading

I’m glad as we’d avoided breakfast and psyched ourselves up for some American ribby goodness, so were among the first bunch in and sat downstairs in their cosy, dimly lit dining area.Continue reading

My First Birchbox

As I’m now entering my late twenties, I am conscious that I need to look after myself, my skin and my body. I’m also aware that my make-up routine (and requirements) have changed since my teens and early-twenties. But keeping up with the best products on the market is tough and personally I get a bit lost.

I generally rely on my slightly more glamorous and clued-up friends to tell me what I should be using and what the best products are. However I feel I need to stand on my own two feet and work things out for myself. And then I came across Birchbox, which seemed to be the answer to all my naive beauty questions.Continue reading
