Heartbreak Hotel at The Jetty

This past Saturday I had the pleasure of attending The Jetty in Greenwich for the production of Heartbreak Hotel.

Initially I was expecting it to be a musical on Elvis songs, however, I was proved wrong.

I took the tube to North Greenwich (The 02) and had a lovely short walk along the river to the venue.  The venue is on the end of a pier where you can sit outside and enjoy a cold drink in the sunshine.  The weather Saturday was perfect.

When I arrived, I went to “check-in” and was given a badge with my name on it.  Once inside we were told to split into two groups and were taken into different rooms of the hotel which the venue had transformed itself into.

In each of the rooms there was different scenery with different actors acting out different scenarios to do with heartbreak.  Each room took about 10-15 minutes and there were about 25 of us in there. 

It ended with a finale on the roof top with everyone singing and dancing along.  We then went downstairs for drinks at the bar and sat in the cool deckchairs admiring the amazing set-up of the venue.

What I loved about this production was the intimate setting and interaction with the audience.  You really felt like you were part of it and hence the reason for the name labels so they can play along with you.

The other thing I really liked was that the scenarios were all so true.  There was something that everyone could relate to in real life and had probably experienced.

Even though it wasn’t what I was expecting I was pleasantly surprised because it was something so different.  It was a nice bit of culture and the way they had done the venue to look like a hotel was so awesome.

It’s a beautiful venue and perfect if you have good weather.  I would definitely recommend this show to anyone who is looking for something a bit different from your usual theatre production.  You can buy tickets here.

Thank you to The Jetty for inviting me.

My Favourite Looks From Fashion Week

Last month was 'Fashion Month' with showcases and catwalks taking place each week in different locations across London, New York, Paris and Milan.  Although I have been attending London Fashion Week for several years now, this time around I was in California and unfortunately could not attend any shows. However, that did not stop me from catching up once I was back from my trip to check out all the latest trends.  I was also browsing the   Esprit website   and noticed they had some awesome pieces just like the trends seen on the runway last month. Here are some of my favourites that I think are going to be hot this season and where you can copy the looks for less! Floral prints at Gucci.  You can shop the look for less here . All black at Marc Jacobs.  Shop the look for less here . Bows at Chloe.  Shop the look for less here . Sparkles at Alexander McQueen.  Shop the look for less here .

New Year, New You

As with every New Year, we make resolutions (you can see mine in my last post) but I think for most of us it's about becoming a newer and better person than we were last year.  I've come up with a few ways we can make little changes to become a newer and better you. New Hair I've said in many of my posts how much I like to change my hair and you can read about my hair dying experience here and my hair extensions experience here .  However, it needn't be a drastic change, just a little trim and some subtle highlights .  Whenever I change my hair I always feel like a new woman! New Wardrobe The New Year is probably the best time to invest in some new clothes because there are so many sales on.  You don't even have to spend a lot of money, I love affordable brands such as Esprit which do really on trend pieces at high street prices.  With a new wardrobe you will not only feel better but look better too! New Hobby The New Year is a gre

How to Wear a Pink Lip

Wearing a pink lip can sometimes be quite hard, especially if it's a rather bright and vibrant shade but I think it looks so lovely for this time of the year. My favourite shade of pink is Impassioned by MAC .  It's very bright and has such a creamy texture that it glides on really well and stays put for quite a few hours.  I find I never have to wear a lip liner with this one either. When wearing a pink lip I think it's important to get the rest of your make up right so that you don't look washed up and colours don't clash. So starting off with the skin I would get myself nice and tanned.  My favourite tanners at the moment are the Superdrug Solait tan in dark and also Tan Truth which you can get from Sally's Salon Services.  Where I have just come back from Ibiza I have still got a bit of a tan so every few days I use the St Tropez Everyday gradual tanner and this helps top up my tan slightly. Then you've got to get the make-up right so
