Hand Luggage

Recently I went on a nearly 11 hour flight from London to San Francisco, and my friend Caitlin suggested I did a post on what I packed in my hand luggage as she finds that interesting, so here you go.

Inside the main compartment of my carry on backpack:

*a warm scarf/blanket
*pigeons and peacock magazine (a UAL magazine)
*The Nature of Beauty book
*52 lists of happiness
*my glasses
*my current favourite pair of sunglasses
*a pouch with hair bands, a nail file, small mirror and other bits and bobs
*the clear plastic bag
*my "American" purse, holding my holiday money
*my "British" purse

Inside the clear plastic bag and the front pocket of my bag was these items:

*my phone obviously
*interdental brushes because I live that braces life where all food gets stuck
*my iPad with games and Made in Chelsea episodes
*toothbrush inside a container
*a Garnier Moisture Bomb sheet facemask (I must say it was a very good facemask)
*a Lush moisturiser sample
*another moisturiser sample
*mini toothpaste
*hand cream
*lip balm
*Body Shop hand cleanse gel (in pink grapefruit, my fave)
*my trusty nude Mac lipstick
*the Mary Louminizer highlight as I heard it smashed frequently when stored in the main suitcase
*unicorn wet wipes

Obviously I will be taking these back home with me on the return flight plus little momentos and less money.

Stay happy



Theatre Review

Recently I have been fortunate enough to have been to the theatre quite a lot. As I am a bit of a theatre fan I thought I would do a review and share my opinions.

Kinky boots:

I didn’t know anything about it before hand but I enjoyed it, I especially loved the messages it portrayed -such as being yourself is the best thing you can do with your life. Some parts I felt slightly awkward as I was watching it with my parents, it seems more like something you would watch as a “girls night out”.


I went to watch this for my birthday with my family and I felt like a young child again – which in my opinion is a good thing. I love Aladdin anyway, but this made me love it even more and reminded me of the story. The elaborate costumes and sets definitely screamed Disney in a good way, and complemented the storyline – I am still trying to figure out how they got the magic carpet to fly.

School of Rock:

The film is already one of my favourites due to Jack Black,  so I was apprehensive if the actor in the theatre would live up to his standards, but … he certainly did. I was shocked at how talented all the young actors were, they could  sing, dance, act and play instruments amazingly – I thought they would be good, but not this good.

They were all individually amazing musicals that I enjoyed but because I am a huge Disney fan my favourite has to be Aladdin due to the adaptation of the classic film with quotes from the other well known Disney films, it also helped that I knew all of the songs that I could sing along to.
