On Friday evening I went up to Old Street station, to the Zeo Pop Up bar event with Scarlett London. The event was promoting the range of Zeo drinks - I tried a few different flavours on the night - Cloudy Lemonade being my favourite, and we had some in the goody bag which I'm looking forward to trying. As soon as I got to the event I met Sanoobar and she recommended getting my hair braided by Bang Tidy Styling which I did - I love getting my hair braided, but yet am still to learn how to do it myself! There was make up styling, clothes to browse, snacks on hand and DJ playing music, alongside the Voga class, which I sadly missed because I was running late (boo!) but everyone said it was brilliant! Thanks so much to Scarlett for the invite, I had a lovely evening!

#ChelseaInBloom 2017

Yesterday morning I was sat browsing my Instagram when I came across a post hashtagged #chelseainbloom and of a beautiful floral lion. It caught my eye, I searched the hashtag and that same evening I was walking around the streets of Chelsea trying to spot as many floral animals as I could! Chelsea in Bloom is an annual floral art show run alongside the Chelsea Flower Show, and is the perfect way to kick off the summer. The event runs from Knightsbridge, down Sloane Street to Sloane Square and along Kings Road. Art is installed on the roads, and businesses and shops get involved and win awards on their floral displays. Smythson was by far one of my favourite displays, and I loved the Lions outside the Saatchi Gallery. The event runs from 22nd May - 27th May and if you fancy a last minute wander around, find the map here.

Lancome Monsieur Big

Lancome are launching a brand new mascara next week; Monsieur Big. Instantly I was reminded of Sex and the City & Mr Big (cue re-watching the whole box set now it's half term!). I've always loved Lancome Mascaras, from Hypnose when it first launched, the glitter versions to the Alber Elbaz collaboration which I still have the heart print mascara in my make up box as I can't bear to throw away such beautifully packaged mascara! We tested out the new Monsieur Big mascara, which comes in a jet black colour. Above is my sister's eye with one set of lashes using one coat of Monsieur Big on the left, and the other eye without mascara on ... just looking at the picture, it's impressive the difference one coat made! I left my mascara on all day, and every time I glimpsed in the mirror, my eyes stood out. Then I forgot I had the mascara on, hopped in the shower that evening forgetting the mascara was on, so expected full on panda eyes ... nothing. Not even a smudge! I'm majorly impressed wth this new release from Lancome. It launches 31st May exclusively at Boots for one month (hello Advantage Card Points!)  and comes in two sizes, trial size at £12 and full size 10ml for £21.

PTS Sticker Haul

A mini post today, first of all showing off my love of stickers then my love of spending my wages on more school resources! I picked up these stickers from PTS, which if you've followed me for a while, you'll know I love... from personalised stamps to target boards, they have a lot of bargains to offer.

One of my biggest resolutions I am striving to achieve next school year is to make my books look neater and more uniform - one my friends' has immaculate books, and I always wish I'd be hotter on the presentation. My books have never been scrutinised for being messy however I know a book I'd like to look at. So ahead of next year, I've ordered house point stickers, which come in the colours of our four house teams, which also promote British Values being named after British people, I've Moved Up in Guided Reading stickers as a little well done to those children moving up stages in reading for their diaries and some more 'fabulous phonics' stickers ahead of the screening check in a couple of weeks.

I would love to hear from teachers for tips on how to keep books neat, so if you have any ideas, tweet or email me!

We have a new addition to the animal family - Poppy, a cross labrador rescue puppy. My family got her a few weeks back, and we are all smitten (bar when she chewed my sister's apple headphones - that was testing!) Cece has met her a few times, and mucks about with her even though Poppy tries to jump on her a lot to play. She is so lovely, and I'll be sharing a lot more of her over here soon!
