It's that time of the year again when everyone is trying to think about what to give people for Christmas, as well as making their own wishlists. I thought I'd do a quick post with a range of ideas because I know I always look for posts like this to get some inspiration!

→ Bath or shower set - I mean you can't go wrong can you, they make a great gift and can be used by anyone. I love this set from the brand Hugg that I got from Waitrose.
→ Perfume/Cologne - Also a super simple idea but it's so nice to get something new to wear. Also Fragrance Direct has 70% at the moment!
→ Bath bomb - A good bath is underrated and of course Lush is the ultimate go-to for amazing bath bombs but of course, lots of places sell some lovely ones.
→ Makeup palette - For the makeup lovers, I feel like a palette is a gift that will be appreciated and you can get eyeshadow, contour, highlight etc. James Charles x Morphe Palette is insane for those who like to experiment with colour but goo…

So like me, I expect you have either been to see The Greatest Showman recently or you have at least heard people talking about it a lot! As soon I saw the trailer I knew I definitely wanted to watch it, I love a musical and once I'd heard people say great things about it then there was no other option than to arrange a trip to the cinema!

Anyway, my family, boyfriend and I headed to Dorchester last weekend and went to the Plaza - a great little cinema with a gorgeous Art Deco vibe. We've been to see quite a few movies there and I have to say it is a great experience, their prices are so affordable and I don't think I've ever been to a cinema with such great leg room! Trust me, when you have it, you appreciate it! Supporting local businesses is always important so if you're ever in the area, I definitely recommend you check out the Plaza!

Now, back to the movie itself! Since a lot of people had already watched it, I had a certain expectation and was fully prepared to instantly have all the songs in my head for the next few weeks. Often, when you have a certain expectation it often leads to disappointment but thankfully this wasn't the case! I loved the movie and thought their take on PT Barnum's life and his journey to success in creating the renowned 'Barnum and Bailey Circus' was done excellently. I think that this was partly due to the fantastic cast! Hugh Jackman was perfect for the lead role, though I do have to admit I was very excited to see Zac Efron in a musical role again. It sort of helped fill a High School Musical shaped hole and it was if Troy Bolton had finally given in to his love of musical theatre once and for all! I was also glad to see that Zendaya had been given a chance to showcase her acting skills in this movie, I definitely think she is one to watch and I'm pleased that she is being given the recognition she deserves! Both Michelle Williams and Rebecca Ferguson were also excellent though one of my favourite characters had to be 'Lettie' played by the fabulous Keala Settle.

Most importantly however is the fact that I share my love of the soundtrack. I don't know anyone who has seen The Greatest Showman who didn't put the songs on repeat instantly after watching it! My favourites are definitely 'Rewrite The Stars' and 'This Is Me' as I thought they were done so well. I seriously wanted to become a trapeze artist after Zac and Zendaya's effortless performance in Rewrite The Stars (and yes I have seen the outtakes!) but the routine and song fitted so well that it was impossible not to love the scene! Similarly, 'This is Me' was an incredible performance and the empowering lyrics are definitely something to be celebrated! I'm so glad that it has received an Oscar nomination, though I was surprised that the movie was not given more recognition!

All in all, I absolutely loved The Greatest Showman and can't wait for it to be released so that I can watch it all over again and along to my hearts content! I'd love to know what your opinions are and what your favourite songs were!

Last Saturday I turned 19 and to celebrate, my boyfriend kindly paid for a trip to London. So on the Friday we morning, we made the journey from our little town to the busy streets of city life. The journey actually went really quickly, (around 2 hours) though we were both very hungry when we got there!

We stayed in The Grange St. Pauls hotel which was absolutely gorgeous and I would 100% recommend it to anyone. The room itself was a perfect size - spacious but still felt cosy and the bed was super comfortable, something I was very appreciative after the long day! However my favourite part and one of the reasons I chose this hotel were the leisure facilities. The pool itself was amazing and it was so nice to be able to use it on the Friday afternoon and again on the Saturday morning before we checked out. There was also a jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and a gym, as well as a spa, which you could book various treatments at. Unfortunately we didn't really use too many of these as most…


March is always a pretty busy time, it's known as the 'birthday month' in our family because between the 1st and 21st, 7 of us have celebrated our birthdays! This means that there is a lot of family time, a lot of presents and a lot of cake which is a pretty good mix - plus there are loads of things I've been loving this month so I'll get started!
Something I had to mention in this monthly favourites was the rather strange weather we had! We'd not had any decent snow since 2013 and then we had multiple snow days in March, so I think it's fair to say that Spring was delayed! I actually really like the snow, it's so amazing to look out at, especially when it is untouched! Although I did slip over on the ice, straight on my that wasn't as great!


This month I have worn my denim jacket constantly, I don't know how I've lived without one for so long! Besides the random snow days, we've definitely had a few milder and m…


These posts are one of my favourites to read so I thought it was time to do another! Here are my answers to the Throwback Tag questions!
1) What year were you born?
2) What did you look like when you were younger? (share a picture!)
Here are a few of me when I was little, I have to admit, I was a fan of the camera!

3) What TV shows did you watch when you were young?
When I was really young I loved Bob The Builder and Bear in the Big Blue House & then when I was a bit older I was obsessed with Disney Channel - my favourite was probably Wizards of Waverly Place!
4) What toys did you play with and what was the name of your favourite toy?
I liked playing with Polly Pocket a lot, and Tamagotchi's oh my, they were great! When I was a little older I loved playing on my Nintendo DS mostly! One of my favourite toys was a bear called Picnic! 
5) What songs did you love when you were young?
I was obsessed with the song 'The Tide is High' when I was pretty young, I can remember s…
