It's not often you receive an invitation to attend a premiere at Kensington Palace and yet that's exactly what happened to me just last week. A blogger's life is never short of surprises that is for sure!
For me becoming a mum was a wonderful thing - all of my other achievements paled into insignificance. I felt I’d found purpose in my life, my new baby daughter became the reason I wanted to succeed and everything was hunky dorky until… I lost myself.
If I'm honest, I'm not really sure know where to start with my time at the Cannes Film Festival this year, it was such a wonderful whirlwind of a weekend from start to finish, I almost felt as if I was in a movie myself, a rom com meets cool European film, set in the Cote d'Azur where a group of friends have the time of their lives and appreciate every second. Now there's a film I should write!
I've just returned from the most incredible weekend at 68th Cannes Film Festival and it's safe to say it really is the most glamorous occasion in the world, so much so even the paparazzi wear black tie!
So we'd not attended a film premiere for a while (hard life huh) and then two come along at once! I know!!!
We attended the glittering world premiere of Paddington last week at the Odeon Leicester Square and before even hitting the publish button on the post about it, I'd received an invite for the Get Santa premiere, the following Sunday!
Yesterday was a rather special day for this family as along with my husband Peter, our child Oliver, 4 and my friend Sharmin who was visiting from Amsterdam, I attended the world premiere of Paddington.
I've tried to write this post a couple of times before now but in all honesty I've only just about recovered from what can only be described as an absolutely epic time at the Cannes Film Festival, 5 days on from returning home on Saturday...
One of the most famous film festivals in the world, this is the third time I've had the pleasure of attending this iconic celebration of film and it did not disappoint, let me tell you.
