My cute bunny trainers

Hey dolls!

I was surprised recently by my Uncle and Aunty with some super early birthday gifts, these cute bunny trainers.....

So I'm about to turn 31years... young... haha and my family know me so well because my obsession with furries in particular, rabbits is pretty obvious when people purchase me gifts like these. 

Now I have been really tempted to buy these trainers myself as I saw the original designer version about a year or so now but the price was a bit much for me at the time. I then completely forgot about them until I was tagged in a post on Facebook where an independent boutique brand were advertising a much cheaper version at a fraction of the designer price.

These are defiantly me all over and I can not wait to wear them out and style them in a variety of ways, watch this space with a Lookbook coming to you soon.

You have to admit these are the epitome of cute and quirky all rolled into one? And doesn't my own caramel bunny, Belle, look fabulous modelling next to them?

What are your thoughts?

Chester Zoo: The Fabulous Favourites Tour

Hey Guys!

This past weekend I was invited to visit Chester Zoo and experience a brand new tour that has been added to a variety of tours available and I can tell you now, I was so excited for this!

When we got there I was given this goody bag full of some fun items too...

The Fabulous Favourites Tour is based around the top 5 animals that people come to see at Chester Zoo. It's reasonably priced at £12.50 per person which includes your own tour guide and the use of radio headphones. Our guide was absolutely fantastic, so informative and she really knew her stuff.

The favourite animals can change from time to time and this all depends on the general public, after all the favourites are deemed favourite by the Zoo's visitors. Here are the top five when we visited....

Number 5 - Elephants
These photos make it look like i'm in with the Elephants, but I can promise you I wasn't.. although I would've loved the opportunity to do so. This is a group of Elephants, all related except for one however she is very much apart of the group regardless. They were having their breakfast when we arrived, all of them eating from various options as the Zoo keepers like to make them work for their food as they would in the wild.

Number 4 - Giraffes
I learnt some key facts about Giraffes, there are actually more then one species and male Giraffes tend to have darker markings. This family of Giraffes were enjoying their breakfast too and weren't keen on going outside just yet... although one did take a quick peek.

Number 3 - Chimpanzees
I adore Chimps and it was wonderful finding out more about the hierarchy of this group and that they have even been featured on the TV show 'Secret life of Zoos' You'll see the guy sitting outside on some straw, he actually walked outside then straight back in the get some straw to sit on, so cute!

Number 2 - Komodo Dragon
I've got to be honest, I did not expect to see this guy in the top five. He didn't move much whilst we were there but he was definitely keeping an eye on us that's for sure!

Number 1 - Lions
I have zilch photos of the Lion's because they were sleeping behind the bushes, I was absolutely gutted! Typical of cats to do their own thing and mess up my plans, I guess I should be used to that by now!

I thoroughly enjoyed my trip to Chester Zoo and would highly recommend you visit soon and check out the tour. We're planning to go back again in September for my birthday because we had to rush back to Wolves so Tom could go to the football match... typical men! haha! 

I Vlogged about the day.....

Thank you again to the guys over at Chester Zoo for inviting me up there, we had a blast! You can watch my latest YouTube video of the visit here!

Mrs UK World & Mrs UK Classic Pageant

Hi Lovelies!

Today's post is something a little different, my beautiful Mother competed in her first ever pageant this weekend. As she was nominated to be Mrs Warwickshire earlier this year, the competition for Mrs UK World or Mrs UK Classic was the next stage before the final stage which will be Mrs World and Mrs Globe Classic!

My mom went into both experiences very humbled and excited to experience something new. Pageant's are not events that she had originally envisioned taking part in, and to win both Mrs Warwickshire and MRS UK CLASSIC this year has been an amazing experience for her.

I am so so proud of her and happy to present to you the new Mrs UK Classic....

You can see the sheer emotion on my Mom's face, she really did not expect to win a crown and sash. But she was fantastic all night and her dress was from Eternally Yours  

Mrs UK Classic and Mrs UK World

How beautiful?! How could I not share this with you all?

Oh and this is what I wore in case you wondered....

Dress and Heels - River Island

Face of the Day: Simply red!

Hi Loves!

Wow I haven't done one of these posts in a while... it's a 'Face of the Day' look for you all!

Today I wanted to share a recent beauty look I tried after a short shopping trip resulted in me purchasing some new products.

Well I spotted these in Boots and thought they would be a great combination.

The Makeup Obsession eye shadow can be de-potted and put into a custom palette, and the best part is YOU create the palette yourself. The NYX glitter is only small but I didn't need to use a lot of product.

And here is another couple of shots of the beauty look......

Will you be trying something like this?

Thoughts & Feelings: I need to travel more

Hi All!

This year I've been experiencing a lot of change and it's really made me think that life is so much more then the 'normal' life society states we should lead. I feel as though I should experience more that this world has to offer and part of that is travelling.


Now I'm not one for your typical type of travelling, by that I mean backpacking through the depths of Asia or Australia, but I do love the idea of visiting lots of countries. I love the idea of experiencing different cultures, food and people.

I want to be able to say 'Yeah, I've been there, it was amazing' instead of 'I've never been, but I'd love to go'.


So right now I've decided that I need to travel more, that trips to more countries need to happen. Having said that, I've travelled to a fair amount of places, so far my list includes:

New York

But lets face it, I have SO many more places I need to visit and the places I really need to visit because they are on my bucket list are:

Now my type of travel will be in the form of holidays which I know cost a bomb so it's time to plan and save. For example I'm heading out to Mexico next year which will cost at least £2k!

New York

I really hope I accomplish my dreams of visiting the countries I want to and I'll definitely be sure to share as much as I can here and across my social media accounts.

I think banking a ton of memories in my mind is my ultimate goal, to look back at all I have experienced as an elderly woman and relive each moment and just.... smile.
