Interview with Vadergirl.

The lovely Vader Girl has become a bit of an online goddess on Facebook.  She has a fantastic page that posts all kinds of Star Wars themed pictures, does fan of the day, and has one of the nicest bunch of followers out there.  I was lucky enough to interview her: How and where did Vadergirl come about? I started posting pictures on Instagram from…

Midi Skirts.

I gave in to fashion and bought myself a Midi Skirt.  I am so glad I can finally get Primark clothing online, I’m not one for tackling their shops! I teamed the skirt with a studded denim shirt from TK Maxx, frilly socks and my Nike trainers.  I’m not 100% I like this skirt on me or not, I feel I might be a little…

Foodies Festival, Clapham Common.

So the partner in crime and I headed over to the Foodies Festival at their new venue in Clapham Common this weekend.  FF is always one of my favourite summer festivals and this was our third visit, certainly won’t be our last either! We were lucky enough to have VIP tickets again this year and they are certainly worth purchasing if you ever consider going…

Here, one is smoothly and effortlessly transported to a world of luxury, glamour and classic nostalgia (or so the saying goes). And…

Last weekend saw We Are FSTVL bringing 15,000 people into my lovely little hometown of Upminster, so of course I couldn’t miss it being on my door step. Our day began at 8am when we sneakily went and parked the partner in crimes car as close to the venue as possible so if we missed the last shuttle bus back to the station we didn’t…

Bridgewood Manor, Kent.

A friend and I headed over to the Bridgewood Manor hotel in Kent for a nice chilled out spa day on Sunday. We were both really disappointed with our day, so we were only there for about an hour before making the 45 minute journey home!  Admittedly we did get a voucher from Living Social so we shouldn’t have expected much! All we got was…
