Flowerbomb: The scent of heartbreak.

There is no doubt about it, Flowerbomb is my favourite perfume ever! Although due to its price I only get a bottle on special occasions, such as around Christmas or my birthday as a gift or, which has quickly become a weird but highly enjoyable tradition, when I break up with somebody.   Originally my mum had bought me a bottle as a way to cheer me up as I was in a month long sulk after breaking up with my first boyfriend, it helped slightly in mending my broken heart but mostly just made me smell delicious.  Then this tradition carried on again…

Middlesbrough Blogger Meet Up.

Middlesbrough Blogger Meet Up.

A couple of Sunday’s ago I was lucky enough to be invited to a blogger meet up in Middlesbrough, organised by the gorgeous Megan. I love blogger meet ups as they give you a chance to meet and mingle with like minded people, they’re my favourite type of event. I hopped on the train with a few other bloggers and travelled down to Middlesbrough and headed to Mink tattoo bar and cafe. I’ve been to Middlesbrough quite a lot, though haven’t visited in 2 years so it was strange being back in the city, especially as i’ve never been to Mink…

Make-up Haul: M.A.C and Sleek.

Now for some reason Make up isn’t something I usually spend a lot of money on. However whilst on my holiday in Canada my cousin revealed to me she can get a 50% discount on MAC make-up along with other things and if I ever wanted anything all i had to to was ask. THAT WAS FAR TO TEMPTING! I justified a few MAC purchases by the fact I hardly spent any of my holiday spending money when I was there so I sent her my shopping list.  There are a few mac lipsticks I have been eyeing up for quite some time now and…

Lush Gateshead Summer Event

Yes I am aware I posted not that long ago saying I was going to try and vary my posts a little more instead of just talking about blogging events i’ve been to but I’ve not really done much else recently so you will have to put up with this for a little while longer as last month I was lucky enough to be able to go along to an event hosted by Danny at the Lush store in the MetroCentre Gateshead. Lush has always been a shop that i’ve loved since I was a kid, I used to just enjoy…

TheNEBloggers Lunch MEAT up @ The Gourmet Burger Kitchen

On sunday I went a long to a small lunch date organised by TheNEBloggers – a blogging network based in the north east of England. If you yourself are a blogger of any variety and live in the North East of England I highly recommend you check TheNEBloggers out. Its a lovely little community of some really lovely guys and gals and i’m really happy to have befriended them. On Sunday we all attended a fabulous event at Lush in Gateshead and decided to meet for lunch beforehand. Our original plan was to go to the new Ed’s Diner that’s…

Newcastle Fashion Week: Fashion Weekender

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to be given a free ticket to the Newcastle Fashion Week: Fashion Weekend Saturday event. But me being the wonderfully organised person I am put this ticket in a safe place and then forgot where this place was. Sadly because of this, and the fact my brother was visiting from London, I didn’t get to go to the Saturday. However after some very quick persuasion I decided to join Amy and Amy on the Sunday before we all went to the Gateshead Lush Event. Now I have to admit the event itself…

Body Butter Bonanza at The Body Shop

On Friday night I was lucky enough to be able to attend another blogger event, this time in my local Body Shop store. I didn’t think I was going to be going as the event was full but luckily somebody pulled out at the last minute and Maddie who was running it,sent me a message saying i’d gotten a place. I ran around frantically trying to finish my essay, paint my nails, do my hair all at once! Since I was a little girl i’ve always loved Body Shop Products (weirdly I used to eat the flavoured lip balms straight…

6 Hours Of Tea And Cake

Although I haven’t really been blogging ‘properly’ for all that long so far its been a whirlwind of a ride,   having attended the FABB Newcastle event earlier this month – which you can read about HERE – i’ve met some really lovely ladies whom I feel i’ll be friends with for a very long time. Last saturday I was lucky enough to be invited to Amy-Lauren’s 19th birthday tea party at Serendipity tea and trinkets in Sunderland. We were told to dress ‘vintage’ so I opted for a sort of 1950’s theme, though i’m not sure how well I pulled that…

Fabb Bloggers Event Newcastle.

Yesterday I was lucky enough to be able to attend a North East fashion and beauty blogger event run by Tor and Ray at Fabb Events. Along with a large proportion of the girls there this was my first event and I was terrified! A few of us arranged to meet beforehand so we didn’t have to walk into the event on our own, it would appear we were all as nervous as each other. I had the privilege of meeting some lovely ladies, Amy who informed me of the event, Kate, Aqeel, Amy, Katie, Faith, Shannon, Amy, Hana, Louise and Libby to name a few. The event itself was held in a beautifully tropical themed room…
