Outfit of the Day


Yesterday I went out for a meal and drinks with my favourite friends. This is what I wore:

This lovely Topshop dress that I received for my birthday. It was the first time I wore this dress and even though on the hanger it was quite heavy, it was surprisingly cool. I love it.
I teamed it with this Laura Ashley statement necklace.

I wanted to keep the look quite casual so I wore flats instead of heels. These ethnic sandals are from Primark. For £6 they were a really good buy. Very comfortable!
I tried to take a simple dress and jazz it up a little. Overall, I loved this look and would definitely wear it again. Let me know what you think!

Hairspray Musical Review


Last night me and my lovely mum took a trip to Nottingham to watch the final night of Hairspray the musical starring famous faces such as Lucy Benjamin and Mark Benton. Unfortunately Marcus Collins was off sick (convenient for the last night if you ask me) but his understudy Fela Lufadeju did a cracking job of taking his place.
There were no cameras allowed during the production so I don't have many photos to show you I'm afraid so you'll have to listen to me ramble for a while!

Mark Benton  and Paul Rider formed a hilarious double act as Tracy's mum and dad, entertaining the audience for what seemed like hours, nipple squeezing was a must see, it had my mum in tears!
As for Lauren Hood playing the role of Tracy's partner in crime Penny Pingleton, she was divine. A great singer, dancer and comic, she absolutely lit up the stage.

Tracy and Link played by Freya Sutton and Luke Striffler did a fabulous job as the leading roles in the show. They had an uncanny resemblance to the real movie pair and I hate  to say it, but was there some actual sexual chemistry there? It wouldn't be hard working with Luke though would it?!
Praise has to be given to Freya, making her professional theatre debut, she was a star and really managed to engage the audience. Well done!

This production is a definite must see, I really can't complain.
The only downsides I would say are the Von Tussle mother and daughter duo. They did their best but they were the weakest singers of the lot, and were far too overenthusiastic but at least they tried!

P.S - If anyone knows the name and number of the drummer in the band under the stage, let me know. Hottie alert!

This Month...


This month it has been my birthday! It was a jewellery birthday this year it seems. I received three Pandora items: A black and gold spinel ring, a white quartz ring, a bracelet with two charms and a black and white diamond necklace from Ernest Jones.

I got two pairs of shoes, a powder blue pair of puma suede trainers and a spiked pair of heels from ASOS.

I also got a bottle of my favourite Ralph Lauren perfume!
Along with these goods, I've been given many other things such as dvds, money, clothing and lots of alcohol. My cake from Marks & Spencer cake was simply divine too!
