Dreamland For Spring/Summer 2019 - Press Trip

*press trip
It's that time of year again, DREAMLAND is open for business! I get so many questions about Margate and DREAMLAND in particular, so why not do another post for you. 

As a South Kent girl through and through, this place has a special place in my heart. Full of nostalgia, and pride of what it's like now. 

You may or may know that I've actually created two blog posts already from DREAMLAND, but wanted to give you a little update on it. I also played around with my camera and a new setting so it's a bit of experimenting too haha. 

Shall we?


Lets get the disclaimer out the way if you didn't catch it in the top right corner. I was invited to the park on this day as press, so received a free wristband, food and drink tokens. I wasn't asked to create a blog post in any way, but I always like to as you guys like it and its such a fun place to photograph. 


Now on to DREAMLAND:

I can't describe how much fun I always have when I visit this place. On this day pictured, it was a grey and dull day (yay to this awesome camera setting), it was raining and super cold. But that didn't stop us! We hit up a few rides, sat indoors with a coffee and laughed A LOT. 


As cheesy as it sounds, this is the place for all the family to have an epic day out. You've got,rides, food and drink, roller skating, arcades, live music and so much more! They hold music events, screamfests for halloween and currently have a Festival takeover.




You might think I'm biased because I'm a local, but seriously this is such a fun place. Did I mention that its actually FREE to enter the park? Yep it's free. If you want more detail about wristbands, opening times and other awesome events they have on offer in the future, hit up the website as it's full of info.




Here are the Easter Opening Times: April 6th - 22nd - Every day 10am-6pm

Any questions about one of my fav places to visit in Kent, then gimme me comment on here, or follow me on Instagram and message me.

Speak soon peeps!

Backpacks Are Better In Colour | AD Fjallraven

AD-bag was gifted to be featured in post
Hello friends!

Yes it's been a while, and for that I apologise. Lots has been going on and I for one am happy to now be in February. From the horrid weather we had in Jan which was extra rubbish whenever I went to shoot. I'm finally getting settled into freelance life (and lovin it) and renovations with the house have started up again, so busy busy busy. 

Anyway, expect posts on a more regular basis around these parts, so please stay and be my blog friend! 

Backpacks remind me of school. The "geeky" kids and skaters used to use them the most from what I remember. The other little groups would either not use a bag, use a cross body bag or drawstring one (this totally gives away my age but I'm cool with that). I'm pretty sure I used an array of bags throughout my time, as a new school year wasn't the same without a new school bag. 

Now at 30 I'm still starting a new year with a new backpack. I started this year with a new Fjällräven Laptop bag in green (GIFTED), but instead of holding my school books and pencil case, my backpack now holds groceries, my laptop when I hunt out a nice coffee shop, water bottle, my camera and more! Making adulting and errand running a lot easier. 





In all honestly, I've never had a backpack that's as nice as this (and I'm being totally honest with you). The material is so hardwearing, and comes in so many colours that everyone could find one perfect for them. Since this bag arrived at my door, I recon I've used it 90% of the time because it's just great. I've taken it everywhere. It's come with me to supermarkets, London, Dunelm to buy new pillows (pictured below), and have to fit with the other half as to who gets to wear it. 



Small details really make this bag special. Well, to me I really appreciate the small things.  At the sides of the bag are small slots which fit an umbrella in perfectly, freeing up room in your bag. Game changer for sure! I also really like the small pop stud fastening that holds the carry straps together. Never have I seen this type of thing on a backpack but I love it. It's an extra safety precaution but also keeps the bag looking a bit neater. 

Is that a thing you ask? Yes, yes it is!


Since this bag entered my life, I've had my eyes on the mini bags and the boyf also wants his own one but maybe the size up. When he wear this size, he feels its too small for him. The arm straps aren't long enough for him and it sits quite high on his back. Just an FYI if you're thinking of purchasing this exact one for a guy. 

So, yes you've guessed it, I'm a huge fan of backpacks. If I had to choose a style of bag that I had to use for the rest of my life, a backpack would be it, and this Fjällräven would be the one. For the space and amount it can hold, the protection it gives to my laptop and the just overall coolness. Plus, the colour ranges they have is something I very much take my hat off to. So extensive!




Are you a backpack lover or hater? What colour Fjällräven would you choose? I've got my eye on the Kanken Clutch in collaboration with Acne. It's just GORGEOUS. 

Much love friends
