London, Dance & Mummy

There has been more than one occasion where I have taken my poor mother to the theatre and forced her to sit through hours of contemporary dance… I'm talking about the type you can't help but say 'What the hell?!' or 'I could do that on my kitchen floor!' This time though, I knew we were in for a treat watching Akram Khan's iTMOi at Sadler's Wells.
   So this is just a quick post for this weekends antics. 
It's been fully of yummy treats and quality mother and daughter time!
Plus, I got to play around with all the buttons on Mum's camera and got a little panorama happy. 

Hope you've had a good weekend too.


June (Stolen) Favorites

I couldn't help but think this reminded me of being 7 years old again and sneaking into mum's make-up bag to 'borrow' her expensive blusher. Before scampering back to my room, I'd quickly place all the items back to there original places so she'd never know - I'm sure she did! 
Now, I'm home from University and diving into the bathroom cupboard to see what goodies I can find.  So here are my (stolen) June Favourites so far …
Laura Ashley, Imperial Bloom Body Lotion - This beautifully fragrant lotion with pomegranate extract (my favourite) is leaving my skin silky soft at the moment. Light, thin and perfect to hydrate skin while the summer weather is on its way. 

Sanctuary Spa Covent Garden, Hand Cream - Now that I'm back to work this velvety cream has worked a treat, taking care of my hands and nails. A new favourite brand I think!

Moroccan Oil, Intense Curl Cream -  I left this gem at home when I went to University and forgot just how great Moroccan Oil is! If you've used it you'll know - there is no turning back with any of the product from the brand. Rather than a salt spay this cream gives me great curls without drying my hair out too. No crusty curls, just great bounce and volume!

Vita Liberata, Tinted Self Tan Gel -  Purchase from Boots around the twenty-five pound mark this tan has been worth every penny. It's a perfect golden/brown in colour and I still haven't found a single streak. Applied with with the Solan Mitt this golden bronze glow lasts up to a week! Time to fake it not bake it this summer.

Di Paloma, White Grape - Stolen from my lovely mum (The Fragrance Queen) this perfume is GORGEOUS! Light and summer, its a refreshing break from my usual favourites. I love a change in perfume…. don't you?

L'Occitane Hibiscus Flower Hand Cream & Lip Balm -  I alway hear great reviews on L'Occitane products and these are no exception. Miniature size, these two products will defiantly stay in my handbag for the next few months. Summery packaging print & summery scent…. Gosh, I'm so excited summer has finally arrived - can you tell?

Hope you've enjoyed my first favourites post!



 The heart of London is just a quick 30 minuet train journey from Tom's flat. 
Time for another adventure…
And what a lovely day for it too! 
 We wandered down our favourite… Carnaby Street 
 For plenty of reminder as to why I need to be rich and famous in life. 
We ventured through the beautiful Covent Garden. 
And the manic Oxford Street. 
We took the tube to Canary Wharf to find that there was a cycling event. Round 8 of The Pearl Izumi Tour Series which excited Thomas very much.
 The cyclists were a just too speedy for me to catch in action. 
A perfect day.
Whats your favourite part of London? 
Happy June!
