Minimalism, De-cluttering and How I'm Trying to Buy Less.

Minimalism. That's probably a word everybody is aware of these days, you see it all over Pinterest with minimal wardrobes and minimal decor etc. I admit it wasn't really something I paid that much attention to, until earlier in the year.

I've spoken a little bit before about hoarding tendencies, like this post where I talked about how I declutter when I tend to hold onto things I don't need or use. I’ve read The Life Changing Magic of Tidying up and it really did help me to de-clutter items in my home that didn’t bring me joy. But I quickly found myself purchasing unnecessary items again as her concept teaches you how to declutter and how to organise the belongings you have, not how to reduce the amount of items you buy as such.

Dinning at 100ft - Events in the Sky with Chaophrya and S.Pellegrino

Dinning at 100ft - Events in the Sky with Chaophrya

When the email arrived in my inbox inviting me along to Newcastle in the sky in collaboration with S.Pellegrino I instantly said yes.  I mean how often do you get the chance to dine 100ft in the air? Then reality hit and as somebody who isn't all that good with heights, you can imagine how scared I was.  But I was lucky enough that Lee agreed to come along as my plus one, as I don't think I would have managed to get myself up there on my own.

Cruelty Free Skincare - LUSH

Lush - Cruelty Free Skincare Routine

I've spoken previously in posts about switching products over to cruelty free beauty and make up products. But I must admit my vanity took over a little and I found myself still buying products that had been tested on animals. Then back in July something changed.

Jewellery Box - Affordable Silver Jewellery.

Jewellery Box - Affordable Silver Jewellery

Now I'm the type of person who when it comes to jewellery its all or nothing. I either have really big bold statement necklaces and earrings, or super small and dainty jewellery. Its rare I go for anything thats kind of in the middle. So when Jewellery box got in touch asking if I'd like to try some of their pieces I thought this would be a great chance to try something different. But typical me I opted for my usual dainty bits of silver jewellery as they had so many beautiful pieces it was daft to choose anything different.

Meet and Treat: Newcastle's Hidden Gem

Meet and Treat Newcastle, Asian fusion, Asian food, Asian Cafe

I adore food, like I really love it. When I go anywhere new the first thing I do is find out where is good to eat, I can't help myself, I'm a foodie. But I often forget to try new places in my own city and tend to always go to the same places which can get quite boring. Over the past year or so I have been trying to visit new places and try new food instead of my usual eateries all the time.

Girls Night In - Hoar Cross Hall*

Last month I was lucky enough to head down to Hoar Cross Hall with HannahHelen and Chloe to experience a girls night in package and enjoy a little bit of pampering. This was my first trip to a Spa, shocking I know. So I was really excited to see what all the fuss was about - and I can assure you I was not disappointed.

CarnLIVal - Hope Street Hotel Liverpool

CarnLIVal - Hope Street Hotel Liverpool

Last month myself and Yasmina jumped on a train and travelled down to Liverpool for the CarnLIVal event hosted by Katy and Sam. This is the first time I've ventured to a different city for a blogger event so was a little nervous, but I can safely say the 5.30am start and 7 hours of my day spent on a train was totally worth it. I think one of the main reasons I decided to make the trip was because I'm feeling quite disconnected with the local blogging community. With an influx of fake followers, Instagram bots and bitchy cliques, it doesn't feel as warm and welcoming as it used to. So I decided it was time to step out of my comfort zone and spend the day hanging out with some fabulous ladies in a different city.

Bedroom Decor and Cushion Covers*

As you may know we recently changed our bedroom around a little. Our flat has two bedrooms and we previously had the larger one as our bedroom and the smaller as our office. But having house/cat sat for a neighbour a while ago I saw how she had the smaller room as her bedroom, and it looked super cosy. So we decided to have a move around and create a cosy peaceful little room to sleep. We kept the wardrobes in the larger room,  as I used to do my hair and make up in the office anyway, so it just made sense to make the larger room an office/dressing room.
