The Bodyguard | Mayflower Theatre

The Bodyguard, the iconic 1992 film featuring Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner, with some of the most incredible songs. I love the film and when I saw that the story had been adapted for stage, I knew I'd have to watch it at some point. Fast forward a few years, and it hit the stage at the Mayflower Theatre and I was invited along as part of the Southampton Bloggers to review the performance - how could I say no?

Book Haul | May 2019

It's been a while since my last book haul, so another one was well overdue, right? This year, I've fallen back in love with book buying and growing my book collection (I've totally accepted that I'm a collector now), which means I've now accumulated a little collection of books I want to share with you.

The Great Gatsby | Mayflower Theatre

I have loved The Great Gatsby for the longest time - I read it for the first time when I was at sixth form college, and instantly fell in love with the writing and the characters. As well as being a fabulous read, it's been adapted for film, and now it's been turned into a ballet. I went to the ballet (for the first and only time) for my 21st birthday and loved the whole experience. So when I heard that the Northern Ballet were bringing their performance of The Great Gatsby to the Mayflower, I jumped at the chance to watch it*.

Cooking From Scratch | My Experience

If you follow me on Instagram, you may be aware that I have recently started cooking a lot more of our meals totally from scratch. I've ditched the convenience food, hardly ever pick up a jarred sauce, and instead cooking with more fresh ingredients. Last month, I officially rejoined Slimming World, and a big part of that is cooking from scratch. I had always been slightly scared of the kitchen, with very little confidence in my ability, so cooking from scratch has taken some getting used to. But I thought I'd share my experience, to show that if I can step into the kitchen somewhat successfully, anyone can!

Best Books of 2019... So Far! #1

If you follow me on Twitter or Goodreads, you might be aware that I am attempting to read 24 books this year, as part of the Goodreads Reading Challenge. And I'm doing well, even if I do say so myself. In a way to keep track of my reading, I'm sharing every book I read on my Twitter feed, and I thought I'd compile a list of the best books I've read throughout the year on here. So, I'm dividing the year into three parts - January-April, May-August, and September-December - and I'll run you through the five best books I've read so far and give you a short review for each. Hope you enjoy!
