#miasmerryhexmas: Week One

Blog, Hair & Beauty

I can’t believe I’m already a week into my #miasmerryhexmas makeup journey! Since I decided to do these intense periods of posting back in October, I felt like I haven’t had much time to really reflect on what I’ve created – hence this blog post!

Festive Fun at Dreamland’s Frosted Fairgound

Blog, Lifestyle

Dreamland is fast becoming one of my favourite places to hang out (if you haven’t already realised from the stream of photographs I post to Instagram!) It’s aesthetics are nostalgic with a modern twist, and Margate paints the perfect picture of the traditional British seaside turned cool.

The Small Business Gift Guide

Blog, Lifestyle

There really is nothing like a traditional blogger gift guide is there? I love finding the best products to recommend, and  I wanted to add a unique twist by throwing the spotlight on small businesses and artists who I think deserve the limelight at this time (and all-year round for that matter!).

How to Prep for a Months-Worth of Blog Posts

Advice, Blog

From Blogtober to Blogmas, there’s always one challenge or another going on in the blogosphere.

My Favourite Pamper Day Products

Blog, Hair & Beauty

While those that love summer aren’t enjoying the darkness that winter brings, I always see it as an opportunity for cosy nights-in, self-love days and mini pamper seshs!

Here are my favourite products I can’t live without when I’m taking time for myself.

Dreamland’s Fiesta

Blog, Lifestyle

Saturday played host to Dreamland’s Fiesta to celebrate Mexico’s Dia de los Muertos, or Day of the Dead. Set in the Hall, an indoor section of the theme park, UV sugar skulls made way for authentic street food and a tequila bar, and a mariachi band transported you to the streets of South America. 

Disney Christmas Gift Guide with EMP

Blog, Disney, Lifestyle

I can’t believe Christmas is almost upon us, I mean, wut?! Although I’m more of a Halloween girl, I’m determined to enjoy a spooky-edged festive season and can’t wait to dig out my black Disney-themed Christmas tree come December.

Reflecting on October

Blog, Halloween, Lifestyle

OH MA GAD. How is October over already? I’ve got such mixed feelings, but mostly I feel sad. I build up to this month every single year and while the past was all about my birthday and half term break, the previous five years have been about pumpkins, Halloween and falling leaves. It’s just a magical time of year basically.
