Testing In Beauty, March 2018

    March Beauty Testing | Essential Twenty

    My beauty hat is firmly back on after a little bit of a break from it. After picking up a fair few new products over the previous months, I’m properly back in the beauty testing saddle. This month I’m testing some products that have been in my stash for a little while as well as some brand new goodies that have dropped on my door mat over the past couple of weeks.

    Hedda Gabler, Milton Keynes Theatre

    Hedda Gabler UK Tour 2017/2018 | Essential Twenty

    I love a press night.

    An Interview with John Ward | Electra, The Bunker

    Electra | Essential Twenty

    My first theatre interview of 2018 is here! Despite not including it in my 2018 goals, I would really like to expand what I blog about when it comes to the theatre and interviewing the cast and creative teams behind productions is a wonderful way for me to do this. And a fantastic way for you to get to know more about the shows currently playing all over the country. Electra is playing in The Bunker from 27th February, and I’ve had the fabulous opportunity to chat with DumbWise Production’s artistic director about the show, as well as learning more about the theatre company itself.
