My Unique Summer Accessory by JORD Wood Watches

JORD Wood Watch: Cassia Walnut and Vintage Rose
In these days of smartphones and gadgets I remain a firm fan of the wrist watch. There is something comforting and familiar about glancing down at your wrist to tell the time, especially when your timepiece is also a beautiful and unique fashion statement! I have long admired the gorgeous designs created by JORD Wood Watches. Not only are they eye catching and unique they are also affordably luxurious and what could be more tempting than that!

Making Magic In Diagon Alley At Universal Orlando Resort

Making Magic In Diagon Alley at Universal Orlando

Wands up all you Harry Potter fans! I've been a huge fan since I was around 10 years old and have devoured the books time and time again since their release. When I started my first summer job at Universal Orlando in 2011 I was beyond excited to be able to work in the amazing Wizarding World of Harry Potter as an attractions attendant at Flight of the Hippogriff. The following year I worked as a dragon handler at Dragon Challenge and had the best summer ever in Orlando!

Lunch at Dexter's and Exploring Lake Eola


I am making it my mission to explore as much of my new home town of Orlando as I can when I have free time at the weekend! This past weekend it was the turn of Lake Eola in the Downtown Orlando area. We chose Dexter's of Orlando as our lunch location as we had heard great things about the food there.

Legally Blonde The Musical 2018 Tour Review Sunderland Empire Theatre

Legally Blonde The Musical Sunderland Review

Having seen Legally Blonde the Musical on no fewer than four previous occasions - three times in London's West End and once at the Sunderland Empire Theatre in 2011 - I was over the moon when a new tour was announced for 2017-2018 and it was heading back to the Sunderland Empire Theatre. I am a big fan of the show, based on the hit 2001 film starring Reece Witherspoon, and could happily watch it over and over again! The music is infectious and the book is funny and uplifting.

Brunch In My Must Have Summer Maxi Dress


Regular visitors to ElleandMimi.com will know that I moved from the UK to Orlando last June. Although I have lived here on and off since 2011 I am still finding my feet and discovering new places to shop. I am always on the hunt for small boutiques where I can pick up pieces that not everyone is wearing. You know the deal, you buy a great dress from Top Shop, Forever 21, ASOS etc only to find that the whole world is wearing it too!

Lilash Purified Eyelash Growth Serum Review

Lilash Review Elle and Mimi Blog

I must confess, when I first heard of Lilash Purified Eyelash Growth Serum I was a little sceptical. After all, how could a simple serum promise to deliver long, curled lashes after just weeks of use? However, being afflicted with short, straight lashes (my struggles are well documented on this blog!) I was also intrigued to see if the claims were actually true so I ordered an initial 3 month supply - LiLash Purified Eyelash Serum 0.10oz/2.0ml (half size) - and crossed my fingers!

Surviving A Long Haul Flight



Lets be honest, does anyone really like to fly long haul? If we could magically transport ourselves Star Trek style to our destination wouldn't we much prefer it? If we could skip the airport stress and the 9 hour boredom fest and just arrive refreshed and hydrated? Of course we would! However until someone invents a 'beam me up Scotty' command that actually works we are stuck with the stress and boredom so unfortunately we've just got to make the best of it!

Max Mara Teddy Bear Coat: Get The Look For Less

Max Mara Teddy Bear Coat Dupe

Ever since I first spotted it on the runway I have been obsessed with the gorgeous Max Mara Teddy Bear Coat. But lets face it, living in Orlando, a thick, warm teddy bear coat is never going to get much wear. Throw in the £1700 price tag and it was clearly out of the question! However when I booked to visit my family in England in February I knew I was going to have to invest in a coat to keep me warm in those freezing North East temperatures.

The Ordinary Skincare - My Experience


It seems that everyone and their dog has been talking about The Ordinary range of skincare products recently and unless you've been living under a rock you will have seen the distinctive packaging all over social media. I am not going to give you an account of what the product claim do for your skin or the science behind the ingredients as firstly, I am no expert and secondly, we would be here all day! Instead, I wanted to talk about the products that I have used and how my skin has reacted. A very comprehensive run down of all of the products and how you should use and layer them can be found of The Ordinary website here.

Foxtail Coffee Co: When The Coffee Craving Strikes!

Foxtail Coffee Winter Park Review

Since moving to Orlando last summer I have been on the look out for a great coffee shop to get my daily caffeine fix. I am not too fussy when it comes to coffee shops, I simply ask that  a) it sells great coffee (of course!) and b) it is welcoming and comfortable. It didn't take me long to stumble upon Foxtail Coffee Co in the Winter Park area.

My Fashion Highlights of 2017


2017 was the year I moved permanently to Florida and as such, my wardrobe had to change somewhat to accommodate the warmer climate! While I can't say that I miss the good old British winter I do miss wearing cosy jumpers just a little bit! I wanted to look back on some of my favourite outfits of 2017 and I hope that you enjoy taking a look back with me!
