Fugglers: The Funniest & Ugliest Toys!

I’ve got something a little different to share in today’s blog post… I adopted a Fuggler. “What on Earth is a Fuggler?” I hear you ask. Well… Fugglers are ‘Funny Ugly Monsters’, adorable (yet creepy) plush toys that may or may not ‘sabotage your happiness’.   Warning: these toys will ruin your life (just kidding) As you can see, every Fuggler has distinctive (and pretty realistic) plastic teeth… so realistic that the media actually thought parents were sewing baby teeth into their dolls… I’m not kidding. My PR package even came with a toothbrush, toothpaste, and caution tape, which made…

My Top 3 London Markets*

I feel like I haven’t written a blog post about London in so long!

I’ve seen The Phantom of the Opera several times (my all-time favourite), Les Miserables, Book of Mormon, Kinky Boots, Sunny Afternoon, The Addams Family, American Idiot, Let it Be… and I’m sure I’ve missed others off that list. I frequently visit The Theatre Cafe on Shaftesbury Avenue, and the last time I got a coffee there, I made a quick list of musicals that I need to see: Chicago, Aladdin, The Lion King, and Wicked. Funnily enough, I received an email…

Beautiful Handmade Ethical Fashion from Madam Lulus

Hello! I spent last weekend in Manchester for the graduation of my boyfriend’s twin brother – what better time to get some photos in my new favourite dress?!
