Well blimey, it has been AGES since I last posted! What have I been up to you might ask? Well, mainly working, revamping my entire house and trying to cram in sleep sometimes which hasn’t left me with much free time to do anything else recently! I did manage to escape to the newly refurbished Showcase Cinema in Peterborough with my friend Tiffany though for a relaxing girl’s night to watch Fifty Shades Darker. My local Showcase Cinema used to have a reputation for being rather old and past it’s sell by date (think sticky floors and rickety foam seats)… View Post

Okay okay I know that Pancake Day has been and gone but please don’t put away your frying pan away yet as I have the perfect recipe for healthy (ish) gluten free blender pancakes that you need in your life all year round!

This can be whatever you want to fill it… View Post

Last month I was thrilled to receive an invitation from M∙A∙C to visit their newly opened Peterborough store in Queensgate Shopping Centre and experience their 60 minute Full Makeup Application service. I mean, what better way to experiment with a new look and learn some new techniques than to place yourself in the hands of an expert M∙A∙C artist?
