Bank Holiday Weekend vibes

Hey Everyone,

Hope you are all enjoying what in London is actually turning out to be a sunny bank holiday weekend.

After a few very busy weekends I’m currently enjoying a fairly quiet one so far. As I’m now back in business computer wise I’ve been catching up with some blog bits as I’ve been blogging off my phone for the past few weeks which has been good but its always nice to have a screen to use as well.

So yesterday involved a trip to B&Q to pick up some paint and bits for decorating, some colour swatch ideas for some more decorating that will follow and also some driving theory and practical books and L Plates. Yes that time which is long over due has come is nearer to being completed.

I tried a mock theory test for driving online last night to see what I knew and what I didn’t and it actually gave me a better score than I expected. I scored 37 out of 50 and needed 43 to pass which is a good start.
When my lessons start again I will feature them in a blog to keep you updated on my progress.

As for the rest of the weekend today is going to be a lazy day with some films and blogging work and enjoying some sunshine

Hope you all have a lovely weekend

Love Holly

MissGuided

Hey Everyone, 

Happy Saturday

I thought I'd put together a blog on my experience with shopping with MissGuided over the past few weeks.

I love the store in Stratford Westfield but last week popped online to see what things I could buy for the fast approaching Autumn season.

I stumbled across first these really comfy black sparkly trainers - I'm not a fan of shoe shopping at all but when i find things i like in my size i jump at the chance to get them.

I can't fault MissGuided and the speed of the delivery I've felt so let down recently with some online shopping with other brands when they say its next day and dispatches days later.


Following on its heals came this amazing grey jumper dress which is so comfy to wear and will team nicely with jeans and also leggings for some great outfits. 
The sizing is also a great fit and true to my size which is something thats great not to worry about. 
I loved the trainers so much I snuck in an order for the white pair which arrived super quick and on time.

You will receive a text alert when its on its way which is also a bonus.

I am so happy with the customer service I have received I will happy shop here again and also in the store as they both have a great selection. I love the store as somethings its better to try on but with everything thats been delivered I have no complaints at all.

Have a great rest of the weekend 

Love Holly

Get to know me

Hey Guys

How's everyone doing this week
Sorry I've been a bit quiet of late but I've got a couple of blogs on the way this week

So here's the first one on a get to know me theme 

London Town
I'm a Londoner - I've lived here all my life but still love exploring everything that London has to offer and love finding bits I've not visited before

Theatre
One of my main loves is and will always be the theatre. I love musicals and love going to see different shows that are on in town and also out on tour around the UK
If you haven't had a look at some of my theatre blogs check out @boxoffice_blog on twitter and boxofficebloggers over on Instagram 


Travelling
This year I ticked off a lot of travel bucket list goals but I've also been very lucky to have seen some other amazing places around the world - South Africa holds some amazing memories in Cape Town but one of my favourite places will always be Tenerife. The island holds some incredible memories from visits over the last ten years.



Disney
Yea I'm a massive Disney fan I've had a lot of adventures in Paris but this year also visiting the original Castle in Los Angeles.
There was something very special seeing the original castle and being amongst the magic. I managed my dream Disney picture with Mickey and Minnie which is something I've wanted for a long time.


Thanks for reading guys
Hope you have a great rest of the week

Theatre Tales

Hey Everyone,

Hope you've all had a great week

So this week I got to pop along and see a show which is something I haven't had a chance to do for a while in London

Have a look here to see what I thought about DreamGirls
Dream Girls Review

I've really missed seeing shows recently, with saving for my USA adventures they went on the back burner for a while but I enjoyed DreamGirls from the start

My list is growing for the next few months on shows to see ( a few tour dates have been booked as well)

Hope you enjoy the review 

Love Holly

My Old Dutch - Holborn

Hey Everyone,


So this blog has a bit of a pancake theme going on today

Hands up who's a fan of pancakes ??

If you are and haven't checked out My Old Dutch then stop what you are doing n head for twitter @My_Old_Dutch and Instagram on MyOldDutch and check out some of the most amazing pancakes you've ever seen



With Holborn, Kensington and Chelsea being the places to head for you won't be dissapointed.

Last night I popped into the Holborn restaurant which is the one I usually head for and yet again it was a 5star visit. The staff are lovely and well the pancakes are just incredible as you can see

With it being a short walk from Holborn station it's a great place to have a meal especially if you are out shopping or heading for the theatre.

Don't forget to check out the amazing Monday deals as well 
I can't wait to try out a Deliveroo purchase in the next couple of weeks to have pancakes at work 

Next visit I'm aiming for one of the amazing milkshakes they have on offer - you end up spoilt for choice on every visit. 

Have a great rest of the day and thanks for checking out this pancake themed blog

London Film and Comic Con 2017

Hey Everyone,


Hope you are all having a great week so far

Somehow it's Wednesday already how did that happen 

So here is my blog on my adventures on last weeks visit to Olympia and Comic Con

This year was my 10th Comic Con, it used to be at Earls Court and was big there but since it's nice to Olympia it just gets bigger and better every year. 

Saturday is always the busiest day and after deciding to arrive a bit later in hope of missing some of the queues I was still sent in the direction of the queuing system outside which even though it looked busy was managed so well to keep people moving. Have to say a massive well done to all involved outside with that system to time it inbetween the trains arriving and keeping people moving.


Olympia is on a couple of train lines but you always know if you come in via the District line that the tube is going to be full of people in costumes - I spotted Harry Potter, Storm Troopers and the Avengers on my train.
I love the Eventbrite add now so you can keep all your tickets on your phone instead of having loads of print outs in your bag.

Once inside I had a quick look round before stumbling across Christopher Lloyds photo shoot with the Delorean I was surprised it wasn't covered up and it was nice to see as I walked past.

Comic con is always great especially the amount of effort you see go in to people's costumes they are just incredible. With Saturday always being the busiest day I have to give them full credit for wearing them when Olympia gets very warm too.


After a look round and working out where everything was I headed up to look around the authors section on the second floor. It's always cooler and hides the air con and I love looking around what they have. 
It was lovely also to see Paige Toon whilst being there to get some books signed. If you haven't checked out her books head to Amazon now you won't be disappointed. 


I had booked the photo shoot for Dean Cain but after getting caught in the crowds missed it by 2 mins. Normally I only do one day but managed to split things across two days for this Comic Con.
When I returned on the Sunday my first point of call was to find someone to see if I could join Sunday's photo session for Dean Cain. I honestly couldn't have asked for nicer customer service from all the staff that helped me out. It turned out his photo session was next to Christopher Lloyds one who was my second one of the day and there were also a few others who had missed saturdays as well. I was allowed in the queue and it was also sorted with no fuss at all and then walked to the next booth for Christopher Lloyds. 



I have to mention also in regards to the photo shoots how well the staff handled the queues making sure people knew which batch numbers were being called and also if any clashes with others were due to make themselves known.

After a quick look round at the stalls it was time to head off home. I'm looking forward to next years already it's always a great weekend and makes some amazing memories everytime.

Thanks for reading n hope you all have a great week

Love Holly
