ZSL London Zoo Sunset Safari feat. Original Mineral Sea Salt Spray

This Summer The London Zoo has opened it's doors after hours to give us animal loving public the chance to experience it's wildlife once the suns gone down. Friyay drinks are old news! Spend your evening monkeying around for real at the Sunset Safari. And I'm not suggesting going T-total, there's cocktails available as well as a selection of food stalls offering all the faves from Pulled pork to Lobster, Caribbean and fish and chips. Not forgetting the all important desserts, candy floss anyone?

If you're looking for something a little out of the ordinary for your night out / date night / family fun then I'd definitely recommend the ZSL Sunset Safari. I was surprised just how much I did enjoy it! Salt spray in my hair, with not a care in the world as I found my inner child sporting pink zebra face paint by the talented ladies at the zoo. I have no shame! In keeping with all things wild, this sea salt spray was kindly gifted to me by Original Minerals to allow me to keep my hair as natural as possible, as due to all the over-bleaching my hair needs to stay away from heated tools when it can. So I'm always on the look out for a good beach-babe wave enhancer and this ticks all the boxes. Isn't sticky or drying and smells a dream (probably a factor to why I got attacked by tons of bugs that eve!)..

The Sunset Safari is a truly magical experience, lazing around in the many deck chair and bean bag zones whilst some familiar animal performers entertain the crowd, young and old. There's something for everyone with Live artists and comedians stepping to the stage. And we haven't even got to the wildlife yet; which of course never fails to amaze, there's something so interesting and bewildering about the animal kingdom and witnessing them at dusk just adds to their mystery.

Freakshakes at Molly Bakes

If you know me well you'll know I have quite the sweet tooth. I'm that girl drooling over her iphone screen when I see anything sugar coated and drowning in carbs. So when "Freakshakes" started doing the rounds on Instagram it was a natural instinct for me to hunt down my nearest stockist.
And that's when I came across Molly Bakes in Dalston.

Originating from Australia, filled to the brim with real ice-cream and topped with your choice of brownie / cookie/ marshmallow or honeycomb; the Freakshake is a long way from home on this side of the pond but has already gone down a storm with us Brits queuing for up to an hour to experience the craze (believe me I've been there!).

What I wore:

Biker Jacket - Zara. Dress - H&M. Ankle Boots - Forever21. Bag: Zara.

So, was it worth it?
Honestly, not so much after an hour queue to order and then another ten minutes to prepare. It is a little crazy the extremes us sweet tooth's will go to just to indulge and of course get that double-tap worthy snap for a like-minded sugar craver to drool over. But I guess that's all part of the fun

I can imagine now that the hype has died down, you'll be able to stop by with ease and treat yourself to what is a bloody delicious milkshake. 'Treat' being the prime word as they will set you back £7. But I can't say that put me off wanting to return and do it all over again!

If you're considering a visit yourself be sure to get down an hour before closing as that's the last orders for Freakshakes. And if milkshakes Freakshakes aren't your thing there's plenty on the menu from cakes, teas and coffees and more food trend offerings such as avocado toast, peanut butter and banana on sourdough and croissants galore. All sourced from local suppliers.
