When The Smoke Is In Your Eyes, You Look So Alive.

It's insane to think that 5 years ago, in a tiny club in Brighton me and a couple of friends went to see a band and were the only 3 people in the club that knew who the support act was.
That support act happened to be a band named Drive Like I Do. They went on to change their name about 4 times maybe, ending up finally with The 1975.
They then re-released Sex and Chocolate and a couple of other songs. Long story short, somehow they've ended up selling out venues of 5,000-8,000 capacity, playing at Coachella and having fans all over the world.
I'm so proud of them.
But I'm more proud of the fact that Mattie still insists on dancing like a loony around the stage with a glass of wine and a cigarette. That boy.

Much Love.

Festival Of Lights.

On Friday we visited Longleat for their Safari Park and Festival of Lights.
I have mixed feelings about zoos/ safari parks but I won't get into that on here. Any ways, we saw lemurs, tigers, lions, cheetahs, wolves, giraffes and snakes along with many more.

I held a Royal Python Snake and saw the cutest little armadillo (watch a video here)

After the Safari Park, we went ice skating (no pictures of that) which was in the park for the winter period. I love ice skating but I only get to do it once, maybe twice a year. We got about 90 minutes on the ice, and I was in such a good mood when we came off.
Seriously, does exercise/ workouts put anyone else in a happy mood?

After some dinner it was dark enough for the Festival Of Lights to begin.
The Festival Of Lights is basically lots of chinese lanterns placed throughout the Longleat house grounds from November to January.
It was amazing!
They had a massive gate with "door Gods", lucky elephants, all the chinese zodiac signs, an under the sea garden and a huge boat, along with others,  all done up in lights.
They even had a temple made from plates! It must have taken hours to put together but all their hard work definietly paid off.

I highly recommend taking some time to go see the display. It was beautiful!

Much Love.

Review | My Little Box November 2015

On last months My Little Box review, I noted multiple times how disappointed I was with it's content. This month is totally different.
My Little Sweet Box contains lots of lovely creations to be used in the kitchen.

Firstly, I just want to point that this months box is actually a tin. I thought this was a really nice little touch (usually they're made out of a very thick card) It means you will be able to use it to store cupcakes, cookies, or even any baking tools etc.
