“I think it’s important to find the little things in everyday life that make you happy.” – Paula Cole
It wouldn’t be an “It’s The Little Things” post if it wasn’t approximately two weeks late, would it?! Okay, that’s probably a little harsh, if I was on my A-game, they’re normally on time…
Anyway, excuses aside, July was a busy month and full of loads of happy memories. (And some big stresses, but let’s try and ignore and move past those eh?) So, as usual, I thought I’d use this post to share some of the little, and not so little, moments in July that put a smile on my face. I hope you guys enjoy reading these as much as I enjoy writing them!
A few weeks back, I spent a fantastic evening at World Duty Free’s newly renovated Gatwick North Terminal store. (You can read more about what we got up to and what I picked up here.) With it being a late finish, they were kind enough to put us up for the night in the BLOC Hotel located in Gatwick South Terminal. Since I arrived a little bit before my friend Leah who was also attending and I took a few photos of the room and share with you lovely lot my first ever hotel review post… View Post
Okay, so I hate starting posts that are all about happy things with some reasoning as to why it was late being posted. Because, well, I write this series for my own enjoyment and sense of reflection as well as to share a little snippet of what I’ve been up to. But, on that note, I do have a very valid excuse as to why I haven’t posted on here for just over two and a half weeks. (Edit: I put my Bill’s Review up before this. Technically I started this post first though!). So, that time I’d had a lot of trouble logging into my site and in fact, at one point I couldn’t log in at all. Turns out at some point some absolute d*ckhead of a person had hacked my site and deleted a lot of files and information. Thankfully, I managed to restore it, but it was a long process and to be honest, it put me off writing for a little while.
But, I’m back, I hopefully have my blogging mojo back with a vengeance so let’s kick off with a very delayed 5 Happy Things from June!
Covent Garden is one of those places that always surprises me. I feel like I’ve paid a visit around once a month since I began living in London and almost everytime I’ve spotted something new. Be that a new bar or restaurant, a boutique to get lost in or an interesting piece of art. (Christmas time here is my favourite for this very reason!)
Take, for example, St Martin’s Courtyard. Somewhere that, if you didn’t take the right turn you may well miss. Filled with a selection of shops and restaurants but away from the hustle and bustle of the main Covent Garden Square. And, nestled away in St Martin’s Courtyard, you’ll find the newly refurbished Bill’s Restaurant. Which was where my good friend and blogging babe Sophie asked if I’d like to check out Bill’s Covent Garden’s pre-theatre set menu with her then see Quiz the Play by James Graham. So, here’s what we got up to (and thought of the experience!)…
I’m fairly open with letting people know that when I was a teenager, I had absolutely awful acne. I tried almost everything I could to get rid of it with the only solution that worked being a course of Roaccutane. One thing I don’t so much let people in on though is that during this period where I would try literally anything to help my skin, I ended up spending quite a lot of money at a laser skin clinic. As I was speaking to someone at the clinic who had money more as a priority than what would actually work for my skin, she failed to tell me that while this course would remove my acne scarring. (Which, to be fair, it did.) It would do absolutely nothing to help treat the live acne I had.
So when I was recently approached by a laser skin company to host a post about laser skin care done right, I was keen to see. So, if you, like me, are keen to find out a little more about various laser treatments, find the information below:
