A collection of window displays... so far


Ever since working in retail I have gained a thirst for visual merchandising. I have been keeping an eye for any interesting displays in stores as inspiration. This is my little collection so far.

Swinky's Sweets


White Stuff


I will put up more posts of this as I find any new displays. Meanwhile I have a Pinterest board on any I have found through there.

Disneyland Paris Anniversary

I know I'm a bit behind as Disneyland is now celebrating their 20th Anniversary but I thought it could be good to see how their 15th Anniversary celebrations looked. 

I always have and always will love this chandelier. 

See if you can spot two guys in the next picture who wanted to stand out in a complete strangers photo. I do not know these people! 

Now for a bit of the city on the way home.

All photos are instantly better with the eiffel tower inserted somewhere.

This building thinks it's a botanical garden. 

Happy Anniversary Disneyland Paris!

Egypt in the Winter but feels like Summer?

Finally we have some sun! To celebrate this I thought I would make a post on my visit to Egypt for my 21st birthday. We went in December when there was snow in England so it was quite the shock to go to blue skies and sand. We heard that Luxor was nicer to see than Cairo unless you really want to see the pyramids. Riding a camel and seeing some mummies were on my list of things I needed to do there.

Glow in the dark ornaments!

We took a ride on the camels through some fields and passed by some farm animals grazing. The ride was a bit bumpy when they go up or down any slopes but ignoring that it was very serene with picturesque views to take in. 

British restaurant named after a Beatrix Potter character? Heck yeah! 

It would be unwise to pet this kitty, he hates you. 

These sweets need to exist in England:
