Our Ladies of Perpetual Succour | Essential Twenty

On the 8th of July, the best blogging opportunity I’ve had to date occurred. We all know that I’m a big fan of the theatre and I was very fortunate to be invited to see Our Ladies Of Perpetual Succour at the Duke of York’s theatre in London. After performing so brilliantly at the Edinburgh Fringe a couple of years ago and going on tour, the show was given a West End stint which is due to finish in just over six weeks, but I’ve been lucky enough to see it for myself and let you know exactly what I thought.

Holiday Makeup | Essential Twenty

As this post goes live, I should, fingers crossed, be sat on a plane at Stansted Airport ready to take off for 8 days in Spain with my family and Jack. I’ve not had a holiday since America, and I’ve not had a beach holiday since 2012 so this is much needed!

Sophie, Wear SPF | Essential Twenty

My name is Sophie and I am rubbish at applying SPF. In 4 days I’m jetting off to Spain (are you sick of me talking about it yet? I’m in dire need of a holiday) and on more than one occasion I’ve had severe sunburn. I’ve got to the point where my skin has blistered, scabbed and scarred on my shoulders. I’ve been sick, I’ve been unable to sleep and I’ve had a blooming miserable holiday. Now I’m older, I’m definitely an advocate for wearing sun cream.
