I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

ELLEgirl magazine

Editor: Claire Irvin

The June issue of ELLEGirl is out now and is a summer festival special, but this is a magazine I buy all the time, so my review is about this magazine in general, not specifically this particular issue (though it does have a particularly excellent book review in there ;o)
Usually when I find a magazine I like, it folds within a few months, (Nova; Minx), but fortunately this one has kept going and I love it. I can’t believe there aren’t more magazines out there for young adults actually, Elle girl is the only one that fills the gap between the ‘How to get a boy to like you’ magazines, and the ‘How to be a trendy 30-something’ ones. I’m not interested in the magazines with the pictures of celebrities with amazingly long fingers and claiming the shadow across some skinny pop star’s bum is actually cellulite. But I am very interested in fashion – especially fashion that comes from shops, not out-of-reach designers; perfectly fulfilled by Ellegirl.
It’s about style, independence and being cool! To give you an example, this month there’s a good festival guide, a story of a girl who organises small festivals and events, a girl who tested drugs for cash, articles about 3 celeb festival-goers and research into why ugly boys look so good on stage! Regulars are style and beauty news, guides to customising clothes, careers advice and an interesting column by Peaches Geldof. If you haven’t bought this magazine before, this is definitely a good one to be getting on with!

Rogue theatre company review
Review of The Firebird by the Rogue Theatre Company in Cornwall
August 31, 2018
Imagine, if you will, being met by a fairy at the edge of magical woodland, and led down a secret pathway shaded by old twisted rowan and chattering leaves of beech, but lit by glinting lights strung through the branches. Each way you turn you’re met with strange and eerie settings of mysterious white princess bedrooms, strangely metallic baby clothes hanging on a line; gothic ravens adorning old books; abandoned tea parties disturbingly strewn with red; and odd antique paintings foreseeing the future; each with its character singing, dancing or otherwise performing as you pass. And that’s just the beginning…..
mail order dog food review
Yes, this is a blog post about dog food! Natural grain-free food and treats from an online pet shop.
October 26, 2017
Loki has become the star of the show in several of my YouTube videos. He also commands attention whenever we take him anywhere; we love him to bits, but he can also be a bit embarrassing! He slobbers on everyone; bumps into them; accidentally knocks small children over and even when we meet people who are perfectly fine with all that, he will never take a treat from them. When family buy him expensive treats at Christmas, they’re lucky if they get a sniff. Even at the Pylle Happy Landings dog show, he wouldn’t take the free samples of handmade dog treats offered to him. He just isn’t interested. As a puppy we had to train him with cheap sausages and pieces of cheese – not the easiest of foodstuffs to take about with you. So when PetShop sent me a box of dog goodies to review, I didn’t hold out much hope….
