Merry Christmas from THLL

Happy Christmas eve! Oh, how Christmas eve used to be so much more exciting as a child. I still think it might just be one of my favourite days of the festive season; the rush of everyone trying to get the last of their Christmas shopping (I know Clark & I have), the fridge is jam packed with goods, every radio station is blasting out Christmas classics and this evening everyone will be in the spirit to get merry, hurray!

The Festive Party Look

 With all these Christmas parties and NYE fast approaching - tis the season to be getting sparkly! Here is my festive party makeup look. The key here is longevity; you want something that's still going to look good past midnight. We all have that friend that likes to snap away the events of the night on Instagram and you don't want to be worrying about touching up your makeup, or smearing your lipstick at the stroke of midnight. So here I have picked the best of the bunch to keep your festive party look intact all night.

Jamie's Italian | Leeds

It's been long over due since I've had a night on the town with my gals in my favourite city. We spontaneously decided on a girls night out, so I booked my train tickets right away. Once I arrived at the Lucy's and Roannah's house, we got glammed up ready for a night indulging in our favourite food and cocktails!

Aqua Sana Spa | Center Parcs

Taking the time to relax is easily forgotten in our busy day-to-day lives, but it's so important to treat yourself once in a while! It's important to take time to chill out and spend time with our loved ones. I love taking the time to relax, be that a pamper night in and enjoying a soak in the bath or taking the time to do an at-home facial. This past week, Clark and I went on a trip to Winter Wonderland at Sherwood Forest, Center Parcs to enjoy some quality time with the family.
  I love visiting Center Parcs, it's one of my favourite places to take a break in England. I enjoy visiting both in the winter and summer, as it really is a beautiful escape - but there is something about their twinkling Christmas lights that cast a Christmas spell throughout the forest that makes Winter Wonderland feel an even more special time to visit. Visiting Winter Wonderland is by far one of my favourite traditions. Come take a peek into Center Parcs' Winter Wonderland and discover a perfect Spa escape within the forest.

The Fitness Update: December

Ahh December, the month of pigs in blankets, mulled wine and mince pies... It can be really hard to stay on track this time of year. Normally I'd be off the bandwagon and eating what ever my heart desires but since joining the gym (mid-November) I'm really into my fitness right now and getting back into superfoods again, so I want to motivate you to all stay on track!

The Hungry Little Lady Travels | Nice

At the end of October, the girls and I went on a short get-away to the south of France. We landed in Nice. Nice is one of the biggest cities in France and is located on the beautiful French Riviera. This city is by far one of the most beautiful places I've travelled to. The old town is filled with winding streets, traditional buildings complete with decorative French shutters. The old town is charming and filled with lovely patisseries, restaurants and coffee shops. We were staying right in the heart of the town with just a two minute walk to the long stretch of pebbled beach. Here's my guide to Nice.

The Hungry Little Lady Travels | Cannes

During my travels to the south of France, the girls and I stopped off in Cannes. We stopped here for the shortest amount of time and I think it was one of the prettiest places we visited, so I simply had to share this trip with you first! The French Rivera is by far one of the stunning places I've visited in the world, so far and I can't wait to return! Here is my travel diary for Cannes.

Rosie for Autograph Fragrance

Now we are well and truly into Autumn, I've had to put my beloved summer perfume (Bronze Goddess by Estée Lauder) away in a draw. I was in the market for an every-day-perfume for the new season and finally found the one, insert - Rosie for Autograph.

Autumnal Birthday Nails | Beautiful Cuticles Cleethorpes

Autumn is by far my favourite time of year, I love getting wrapped up in blankets, the changing of the leaves and seasonal festivities. I've already started rocking my favourite berry lipsticks for autumn and thought why not get nails to match too! As my birthday is coming up this week I thought I would treat myself to some Beautiful Cuticles.

The Pier | Cleethorpes

The Pier has undergone a huge £.4.7 million transformation and has recently opened its doors to the public. It is so wonderful to see The Pier reformed to its former glory with The 1873 restaurant, The Promanade Public House and Tea Room now open. The large ballroom, which can cater for 280 diners has yet to have its grand opening. On this occassion, Clark and I agreed a date night was well over due and with The Pier newly opened, we just had to see for ourselves the special transformation.

I'm not sure at what point in my life I really got into skincare but I've always been interested in finding out what's on people's bathroom shelves and what lotions and potions they like to slap on. So let's get into it.

Cleethorpes Colour Run

Explosions of multi-colours filled Cleethorpes over the weekend as Cleethorpe's first Colour Run took place, Sunday 2nd September. There were high spirits throughout as thousands took part in the colourful run. The event celebrated health, being happy, getting together and being active as part of a community. Here is my photo diary of the day.

Berries Are Back

Now we are into September and welcoming the new season, I feel it is well and truly acceptable to be rocking the dark lips once again. I love wearing a bold lip all year round, but a deep burgundy is my favourite kind and it is perfect for styling during Autumn. Here I have picked out a few of my favourite berries.

Sushi Rolls Made Easy

If you know me, you will know I adore sushi! I would eat it all day, everyday if I could. As Clark and I enjoy experimenting in the kitchen, we were up to the challenge of making our own. I bought a sushi set, hoping we'd get one or two uses out of it. After finding out how easy it is, we now practically live off the stuff!

Here's my first update of all things sweaty.

The Farmhouse | New Waltham

Upon wakening to lovely sunny morning, I realised that it was Sunday. What better way to spend the day than visiting a village pub for a proper lunch? A traditional British Sunday dinner used to be dished up weekly as part of my growing up - My mum's seriously does rock! Now it has turned into a rarity for me, so I do treasure a good Sunday dinner. Twiny (Lucy) and I decided to meet at The Farmhouse, so I thought i'd bring you along with me!

Riverhead Coffee | Grimsby

A Saturday morning tradition for me and my mum, is to head to town in the morning and hit the shops before noon, as we much prefer to browse while it isn't too busy. I remembered this place that I had been wanting to try, as it is relatively new to the town. On this day the sun was already high in the sky, so we thought we'd have some refreshments before hitting the shops.

Baby Shower at Gallaghers | Cleethorpes

This weekend I attended my first Baby Shower. I didn't really know what to expect, except that we would have a lovely evening and that we did. So we all got dressed up, packed the car up with piles of pink presents (expecting a baby girl) and headed to Gallaghers, Cleethorpes.

Lemon Sole Parcels | Recipe

I am lucky enough to have a boyfriend who adores cooking and baking, the kitchen is most certainly his domain. He always rustles up something nice for us, but I wanted to treat him to tea on this occasion. I always feel slightly intimidated cooking for Clark, as he is an ex-chef, but I really enjoy giving it ago, and he is always very praising which is encouraging. So if you are a newbie in the kitchen, like myself then this recipe is for you!

We Are People Bar | Cleethorpes

We Are People Bar has just opened its doors to the public in my hometown. Described as a small little corner of Cleethorpes, for like minded folk to enjoy the finest food and drink. I was very intrigued as to what this place would have to offer, so I was quick to pop down on the opening day! I love the rustic look of the building on the outside, and I was even more impressed with what they had to offer inside.
