Secret Cinema Back to the future review

So as I mentioned previously, i will be attending my very first Secret Cinema Experience. and i finally have done it and wanted to tell my experience there.


As soon as I arrived there, at the location we were told to meet at. there was a line to get in and even then we were greeted by Actors that were potraying American cops, telling us to get in line and no J walking and as we came in, it was the most amazing set I have ever seen. the detail was immense!

we then were welcomed in to the country fair, and a southern farmer boy told me and my sister "Looking mighty fine tonight" and to my boyfriend "and you sir...you look Ok" which was so funny we burst out laughing as soon as we arrived.

we then made our way to Hill Valley and the first thing we noticed was a Jump Rope and people were running in and seeing how long they could do it for. so instantly i wanted to do that. I ran in (thankfully made it seeing as i've never jump in a jump rope before) and then shortly after my sister did and we lasted so long, but then my sister couldnt keep up with the speed so we failed in the end. I was already out of breath. plus the day we went the weather wasnt the best, it was very windy and cold but i guess that just adds to the effect.

we then wondered around Mcflys house and all the others that were at the front of the site, where they sold icecream and had 1950s cars to look at. then just round the corner was the hill valley town square, this is the main area of the event where they would show us the movie at the clock tower. We were told "No J Walkin" many times during that evening by officers.


My sister was stopped by an actor named Annie, she talked to my sister about how she was saving up money to fix her car. and my sister was so nervous she didnt know what to say accept "My name is Virginia, but i thought it said Virgina" in an awkard English/American Accent.

we made our way nr the High school where they was a fun fair. we went on the fairest wheel which cost 3 pounds a ride which was fine. and then went into the school which was my favourite part, because I love dancing so i straight away wanted to do that. me and my sister danced the night away with our 50s style dance moves at the Enchantment under the sea dance

Back to the future Secret Cinema

So Secret Cinema this year have done Back to the future, and I love that movie as much as the next, particularly because i LOVE 1950s era. So I was very excited about dressing up and allowing them to bring me to a time I wish I had known. I go August 10th just nr my Birthday this year. So in order i had to prepare myself. If you don't know what Secret Cinema is, dont worry, Not many do as they like to keep it on the down low so it stays secret. but today with the internet, its quite impossible, as i write this you now know. its an event they hold every year and they recreate a movie to make you feel like your part of it and they go in to so much detail even to the point in changing your whole Identity! Like mine. I'm now refered to as Evelyn Cannon from North Salt Lake, California :)

I was panicking for Months. What shell I wear? Where do i get my clothes from? etc and finally made a big progress as I decided I wanted to look perfect so I tackled out to make my own dress! yes very risky. I ended up finding a 50s pattern on etsy in my size and i fell in love with the design so i purchased it. It actually ended up cheaper then buying a 50s dress so I benifited myself. after a week I have finished my dress with a few minor details left to finish but I thought now is perfect to share with you..

Preparing myself for the biggest mess of a life time. i guess that what comes with trying to do things yourself. Lucky for me I had my amazing Husband Alex to help me make it. we both never made a dress before so I was very nervous about doing it. but as soon as we got started my confidence grew and the dress turned out PERFECT!

I absolute love it. I went with a peach summer prom dress look and it turned out just how i wanted.

Birthdays

So I haven't updated my blog in a while and i thought id wright just because so much has gone on. Alot of Birthdays in the Month of June in my family. My sister just has her17th Birthday on June 14th and she came down to london which is so close to me I just had to pop down and visit her. For the last Four Month i had been working on a crochet throw for her and she didnt even know about it, but i knew she would have wanted one. so i was very excited to come down and surprise her with that.
I know she loved dark enchanting color and stars right now so i thought this would be perfect!

Me my sister and mom went shopping around London and we had a lot of fun, even tho they were heading to Harry potter studios shortly, we made the most of the time we had with them. feeling very girly indeed ..

Today is my Nephews Birthday and he has turned 1 today. I didnt get to see him cause its so far away from them but mentally I'm celebrating. I dont get to see him a lot the last time and one of the first times i saw him was christmas and its crazy thinking that I only seen him twice in his whole life. but thats the thing when you live that far from your family, its very expensive to make regular trips. i tend to see my mom and sisters alot tho as they do come London every now and again. and its nice to be able to do things with them and catch up. But christmas is usually the time i spend over with them and see everyone.

Miley Cyrus Bangerz Night

So on the 16th May Friday night I met up with my sister and we went to go see Miley Cyrus Bangerztour live in birmingham. it was amazing! A lot of people gave her crap for the show being so controversial, but quite frankly it really wasn't as inopperiate as people have made out. I also didn't see any children at all there were all my age in there late teen early twenties. and those who took there kids and didn't like it, then maybe you should be better parents and not do so. but overall her performance was outstanding. that girl can sing and she does have a talent! she put on an amazing show, full of lots of crazy things that made you excited to be there. I can't wait to see her live again cause it was worth it.

My Shop

So as you guys know I do own a shop on Etsy and from time to time I put new stock up on there when I'm feeling its worth to sell. lately I've been loving all this Salem and Psychic style, So I've been inspired to make a new collection. My first thing on there is this Vest Tank top with Crescent Moon and Pentagram Symbol which I loveee. It was inspired by UO. and you guys know how over priced there clothing can be. Especially the tops in there. I would not be will to spend £35 on a vest top and I'm sure you wouldn't either. so i decided to replica the style and make it much more affordable for those who don't want to spend a great deal on them. also I will next month be having a ton of Celestial Jewellery going up for my collection at a very low price and I can't wait to show you guys :)

If your interested in the collection, you can find this Top on my Etsy or on Ebay

Monthly Favourites May

So This year I've been religiously into Celestial/Salem style homeware/clothing. I love it to much, but theres not a lot of thing you can find. UO have an amazing line of Psychic Style clothing which i love,but unfortunately over price. I have how ever made my own tops. and I'm thinking about selling them on my etsy. so there will be a post of that soon. But for now i will just show some of the item's I'm loving right now. and i want to get so here it is :)

So I'm absolutely in  love with all of these. I came across this beautiful full moon Maxi dress and instantly thought i need that for summer. I don't usually wear dresses so its not something i usually buy, but I really love Rogen fabric and the feel, and it works sooo well with this dress. I love the length, it has a type hippie style to it, and i feel i could pull it off.

The Celestial Treasure boxes are to die for.! I always need a jewellery box as I don't really have them so this is perfect. I love the antic style to it. and the cute little stars and moon mental embellishments. This was only £8 Bargain! there hand made crafted and i just think there amazing!

Personally one of my favourite symbols. the Zodiac! I love the Zodiac Bed throw. because I'm etremely into those symbolisms, its quite enchanting and i love that about it. Obviously right in the middle you have the zodiac circle with the constellations surrounding. I already have way! to many chair and bed throw. but i seem such a sucker for them and always finding throws i want. but I try to convince myself "you can never have to many bed throw" but I know you definitely can in my case.

Day at the Beach


Alex and I decided to take a trip to the beach down in Bournemouth. I've never been there before so was very new to me. it was a beautiful day, not to cold not to hot. so we decided to take our bikes down and 
do a bit of excersise while enjoying the scenery. Had such a great day. even tho anyday with him is my fav
