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!

A review of ‘Things are what you make of them’ – Life advice for Creatives by Adam J. Kurtz
March 21, 2018
Rain kindly bought this book for me for Mothers’ Day, and I’ve since managed to fit in the odd five minutes here and there to read it. That’s one good thing about Things Are What You Make Of Them – it doesn’t take long to read! Oh that makes me sound like I don’t like it, which isn’t true. It’s a book for the current generation who take their entertainment and information in snippets; in bite-size chunks of Instagram stories. There are even perforated edges so you can choose your favourite little pages of words of wisdom to put up on your copper magnet board next to the foiled print that says Eat Sleep Create….
Review of the L’Oreal Voluminous Superstar Mascara
February 15, 2017
On holiday in America in 2015 I bought the L’Oreal Beauty Tubes mascara. This was amazing, but when I went back last year, I couldn’t find it again. Instead, L’Oreal had this mascara, called Voluminous Superstar. It is one of those mascaras with two ends – a white coat first to lengthen your lashes and then the actual mascara to go over the top. This was just what I was looking for as I’ve liked those kind ever since I bought the Maybelline XXL volume mascara. (See my review here from 2005)……
Review of the Rose and Crown in Dunton Green
Review of the Rose and Crown restaurant in Dunton Green, Sevenoaks, Kent
February 9, 2018
There is a fundamental problem about going to visit my parents, and that is that the dog has to sleep in our bedroom. If he doesn’t he ends up scratching the door or waking everyone up whining, so instead I suffer with the noise he makes while he sleeps. Imagine something like a cross between an elephant and a sea-lion snoring whilst dreaming of mating, and you’ve almost got the level of noise our beloved Loki makes at night. (And day for that matter. Whenever he’s asleep basically.) So I admit, I was in somewhat of a tired daze the day we went to the Rose and Crown pub restaurant in Dunton Green to celebrate Dad’s birthday. However, I do remember the essentials well enough to write a little review….
