A couple of weekends ago, me and my partner had a busy day out in Essex. So here’s a look at what we got up to.
Our first stop of the day was at Ivory Hair & Beauty, which is a salon in Brentwood, Essex. I’ve recently started having my nails done there and whilst it is a bit of a drive, it’s worth it.
Still feeling in the Disney spirit after our holiday to Disneyland Paris, I went for Little Mermaid nails, which I love!
After a spot of pampering, we drove to nearby Hopefield Animal Sanctuary.
Hopefield is a not for profit organisation that’s run by volunteers. All of the animals are rescue animals that have mistreated or unwanted, however some come from loving homes but the owners can no longer look after them.
We saw surprisingly speedy tortoises.
A piggie cooling off in the mud.
Cute rodents and rabbits.
Iguanas and lizards.
My favourite, Peter Pan the pony. Such a sweet, gentle creature, with a very sad backstory.
Reindeers who’d arrived just a couple of days before our visit. They came from a loving home, but the owner could no longer care for them.
After a great time seeing the beautiful animals and appreciating all the volunteers hard work, we drove home for dinner.
Stuffed peppers, cous cous and tenderstem broccoli for dinner.
After dinner we headed back out, as we had tickets for an outdoor cinema event in Hainault Forest.
It was our first time going to an event like this and we saw the classic movie, ‘Grease’.
It was such a fun night. We sat on a blanket with our popcorn and everyone was singing along and dancing, there was a great atmosphere.
Just before midnight we arrived home, tired after a busy but amazing day.
