Amelie Comes to Bournemouth

•Press tickets• Last night I went along to The Pavilion in Bournemouth to see Amelie on the stage. As is becoming quite a theme with these show reviews, I didn’t know much of what it was about beforehand, and I am actually enjoying going in blind, without any spoilers or preconceived ideas. All I knew was that the musical is based on the film of the same name, and that...

New Jersey Nights at Bournemouth’s Pavilion

•Press tickets• Last night I headed back to the Pavilion in Bournemouth to see New Jersey Nights with my nan and some fellow Bournemouth Bloggers. Although I knew that it was a tribute to Frankie Vali and The Four Seasons, I didn’t really know much about the show, or the band for that matter, as they were in the charts a little before my time. I had taken my nan...

Learning a New Skill with Jet Ski Safaris

•Press event• If you’ve been reading the blog for awhile you may know that I suffer from generalised anxiety disorder. I struggle with some social situations because of this, and it does make it harder for me to come outside of my comfort zone and try new things. I was so, so nervous before our session with Jet Ski Safaris. I had never been on a jet ski before, and...

Midweek Dinner and Drinks at Revolution Bournemouth

Review Visit  Recently I was invited along with some of the other Bournemouth Bloggers to enjoy dinner and drinks at Revolution Bournemouth. Having visited a couple of months ago with Ed, I already knew that the food was tasty, but I was looking forward to having a nice catch up with the girls and trying some of the new items on the menu. We arrived at 6pm and were shown...

A Much Needed Girls Night with Bh2 Leisure – Review

Review Visit  On Tuesday night, I headed over to the Bh2 Leisure centre with Amy from Everything Mummy and Katie from My Best Make for a much needed girls night. As well as all being bloggers, we are also all mums, with seven kids between us, so it was amazing to get out and have a good catch up over some drinks and good food. Bh2 has an excellent range...

What to Expect From a Salon Blow Dry

I am going to admit something perhaps a little unusual. I almost reached the age of thirty having never experienced a salon blow dry. Now, that isn’t to say I haven’t had my hair blow dried at the salon before, but I hadn’t visited a hairdressing salon purely for a blow dry. I had always had my hair cut first, with the blow dry merely a finish to the other...

A Morning of Total Relaxation at the Christchurch Harbour Hotel

Isn’t January a bit of a rubbish month? Who decided to make the first month after the Christmas break last for what seems like forever? Couldn’t we have a nice short month like February to ease us back into things? Fortunately I was invited along with some of the Bournemouth Bloggers to the Christchurch Harbour Hotel for a morning of relaxation in their brilliant HarSpa, which has recently had its...

Beauty – A Christmas Showcase with The Body Shop

Last Friday I was invited along with some of the other Bournemouth Bloggers to an event with The Body Shop. We had been to an event with them the month before which I really enjoyed, so I was very much looking forward to this one especially as it was a chance for the store to showcase their Christmas range. On the night it was absolutely pouring with rain and so...

Foodie Friday – Brewhouse & Kitchen’s New Season Menu

This week the Bournemouth Bloggers were invited along to the Bournemouth branch of Brewhouse & Kitchen to try out the new season’s menu. I hadn’t actually been to Brewhouse & Kitchen before as last time I was invited along I wasn’t able to go and Ed went in my place. He had told me it was a nice venue and that the food was good so I was looking forward...

Beauty – An Evening with Lush Bournemouth

I have become a huge fan of Lush over the past couple of years, ever since I started to enjoy baths and I feel the two kind of go hand in hand. Although I have bought myself several bath bombs from Lush, I haven’t really paid attention to the rest of the products they have on offer. I was really excited to head along this week to a special event...
