Lifestyle | Ice Cream, shopping and fun in the sun

It's been a weekend of food, giggles and genuine family time this weekend and you know when work gets you down and you just need space to breathe and explore a different city!? I took my 3 days off as an opportunity for family and retail therapy. First off - Ice Cream!!! I've been itching to go back to Harrods as - no lie they make THE BEST ice cream. Ever! Every time I go they are so amazingly busy and its just impossible to get in. Heads up - a Friday night towards around half 7 is so quiet. Thank god it was because I had gone on about this amazing place a lot and dragged my mom through the tube station and jogging down the road to try and make it time to order. Ps. Last orders are at 8pm. The Ice Cream parlour is so pretty and interior is kind of like an American diner. I went for the Chocolate Brownie Cup and my mom went for the Bosco Meringato. Now I'm not saying they are the cheapest Ice Creams in the world as they range from £15-20 but its kinda worth it when you see it come out and its huge! Definitely recommend this if your ever in London.

Next up was the Harry Potter Shop at Platform 9 & 3/4 - Oh my life this shop is a must for any Harry Potter geeks. The theming is just brilliant and the amount of merchandise is truly overwhelming - there is literally something in there for everyone. I did pick up a personalised trunk with my initials on, a jacket, a hair bow and wand. Considering I didn't go in there looking to buy - I thought I did quite well holding back as there was loads more I had my eye on, but I still have my holiday to pay for so - priorities. Hahaha. Other than that it was just a very chilled few days and last but not least - you can't go to London without visiting the Disney Store! Until next time..

Lifestyle | Finding my way back from Neverland

Happy Tuesday! I'm finally back from the land of the lost (Neverland) and have rediscovered my passion for my little forgotten corner of the internet. Just the other day I was thinking about why I haven't posted in a while even though I have quite a few posts filling the 'draft' section. I just couldn't seem to put my finger on what was stopping me from continuing with this. I guess I just lost motivation for posting and time and work got in the way and this page just ended up on the back burner - like everything else I tend to give up on. I decided to give this another go just for personal reasons - kinda like my own little online diary and way of documenting my life so I can look back on all the incredible things that happened as I go. A few songs blasted through my shuffle list the other day and there's a few lyrics that stood out to me from them. One being from The Glow by Shannon Saunders. 'Feel your strength, you can face the world. Believe every day, everything is possible'. Over the past few months I've kinda been at a brick wall and felt a bit lost with where I want my life to go next. I'm finally back on track and feeling so much happier and hopefully this will be my year to shine. I'm so excited for what this year will hold and have a few things planned to look forward to, including a few posts I've had ready for quite a while to share with you all. Never give up on your dreams and always have courage and be kind. Until next time...

Lifestyle | Gusto's Restaurant and Bar

A few weeks ago I visited the very pretty, very Instagram-able Gusto's Restaurant and Bar. I've seen this restaurant many a time on my daily walk and have always been fascinated with what the food would be like inside the fairy light lit cove, and this did not disappoint.  Forest scenery and earthy tones filled the restaurant and the interior was stylish and gave a homely feel. Once seated it was time for the main course - the food! I went for the spaghetti meatballs which I must say were lovely. The meatballs were spot on and it's probably the best spaghetti and meatballs I'd ever had when eating out. There may have been a tiny bit more sauce then was needed but hey - everyone's different and I loved it. The dessert was great too. My favourite time of the evening! I went for sticky toffee pudding and having not had this in a while I managed to eat nearly all of it. Overall, the whole evening was beautiful and the staff were lovely the whole time. If you're looking for somewhere different to eat with both fancy food and great eating out favourites - the is the place for you. I've included a picture of the menu just so you can see what's to offer and some of the prices. This was from the larger menu but I do believe they have a set menu too.

Lifestyle | The Greatest Showman

The film of the year if I'm honest. The Greatest Showman appeared in UK cinemas around the 26th December last year and since then I had been asking anyone and everyone to come with me to watch it. I kept seeing it advertise on billboards and on the side of buses and was becoming more and more impatient to see it. As the film's popularity grew, I finally managed to convince my mom to come along with me (she hates cinemas) and it was hands down one of the best things I've seen in a while. Yes I bought the soundtrack the day after. Yes it plays everyday without fail even if its just one song.... it's so addictive. You can't help but dance and sing along, even if you can't sing. Sorry Zac and Zendaya - Rewrite the Stars is kinda my favourite closely followed by every other song. This Is Me, The Greatest Show, The Other Side.. I could go on there's so many!

Lifestyle | Get to Know Jordan (Hello Miss Jordan)

**Photo taken from Jordan's Instagram account with permission (hellomissjordan) **

The cold never bothered me anyway *flips hair*. To be honest it kinda does when its arctic temperatures like this! But, weather aside, it's actually been an alright week. Its the most I've laughed in ages! Anyway back to the subject. I wanted to do something a bit different on the blog and introduce a few bloggers that transform my Instagram feed and brighten up the days with their blog posts. So without further ado, please welcome Jordan (of Hello Miss Jordan)! Travel queen, floral lover and all round Disney Princess - Jordan's blog and Instagram make me want to book a holiday or buy a new girly dress and like Victoria (IntheFrow) I think that she's the loveliest person. Her blog ranges from travel, food, fashion, beauty and life - she definitely has all topics covered and there's something on there for everyone. I got the chance to ask Jordan a few questions recently, so here's what happened. Enjoy lovelies!
