On the 17th of December (day of my birthday!) my boyfriend and I decided to pay a visit to the Coningsby Gallery, near Goodge Street in London, where they were exhibiting The Graphic Art of the Harry Potter Filmsfor a short period of time. Being a huge Harry Potter fan (click here for my Harry Potter studio tour blog post) I certainly could not miss out on this opportunity. Also I love art in many forms; from contemporary, classic to graphic & being myself an amateur cartoonist (mostly manga) during my spare time then I have to confess that the art of Harry Potter is something that always inspired me and I admired too. I always have been fascinated by all the details that graphic designers meticulously put in all the Harry Potter movies. If you didn't have the chance to see this exhibition as I believe it is now over, here is my little retrospective of all the arts you could have found.
A few weekends back I spent time at the Chilworth Manor hotel based near Southampton. The occasion was to celebrate my boyfriend's mum's 60th birthday. During our stay we got to taste amazing food, relax in an all comfort hotel, enjoyed pampering at the beauty salon and enjoying all the spa facilities such as the pool, jacuzzi, sauna, gym etc.
Let me introduce you to Cowshed Wild Cow my current favourite body lotion. The first time I discovered this brand was when I got a medium size product in My Little Box back when I was subscribed over a year ago, actually it was in the special Fleur de Force box probably my favourite box that I ever received from this brand.
I have been rather lucky the past two months, I got to go to the Bare Mineral Christmas range launch and I was also invited to the Taste of London Winter edition. Basically it's been a good blogger time for me, meeting old and new bloggers, meeting literally two of my favourite bloggers, meeting Howard from the Bake off at the Free Range Blogger launch and enjoying a lot of yummy foods & tasty cocktails, what more to ask?
Did I just discover my all time favourite foundation? Well so far I have and if you haven't guessed it already; it's the L'Oréal Infallible 24H-Matte foundation. I bough it on my last Boots beauty haul a few weeks ago, which by the way if you haven't seen my Boots haul post then it's this way. I'll be honest with you I pretty much chose that foundation because it was slightly cheaper than the other foundations on the L'Oréal counter but also I did like the chic packaging a lot which is slightly different from the glass bottle with push pump that I am more use to.
It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas and I cannot be more excited about it! I cannot wait to eat gorgeous food, be surrounded with the people I love, play board games, wearing cosy thick socks and pyjamas, go for long walks in the freezing countryside and drinking my weight in tea. Yes! the festive season is approaching fast and it has to be my favourite time of the year, also lets not forget that my birthday is literally a week before Christmas day, so even more exiting for me. But in the meantime without any further a due here is my Christmas selection but this time around it's for the ladies. I went for a gold rose theme as you can see, sorry it has to be done.
