Cocktails and a Catch Up at The Lazy Fox

•Review Visit• I don’t know about you, but the week before Christmas always seems to go by in a blur. Rushing between one errand to the next and fitting in school Christmas parties and carol concerts, whilst running on barely any sleep after staying up late wrapping presents to go under the tree. I was happy to escape from it all for a couple of hours last night for a...

Celebrating 2 Years of Bournemouth Bloggers

•Press event• Back in 2017 I took over the reigns of the Bournemouth Blogger network. I had just handed in my notice at work after deciding not to go back after maternity leave and I was feeling a bit odd about not working in the events industry anymore. I figured that running the network, even for a little while, would give me something to focus on alongside the children and...

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...
