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 wasn’t quite as big as I thought it was going to be, but it was still a really enjoyable day. There were a number of stalls selling clothes around the venue, my favourite being Mod Dolly – a clothing brand i’ve recently discovered through other bloggers and quickly fallen in love with. There was a few items which I really wanted to buy, a polka dot shirt, a gingham dress. However I am forcing myself not to spend any more money on clothes until at least august as i’ve been very naughty the past two months with unnecessary purchases.
There were a number of events going on throughout the day all being presented by Made In Chelsea’s Ollie Locke (who is gorgeous might I add) One of the events being a demonstration of the infamous “Geordie Blow dry” and various different ways to style the hair with a Geordie plait and a
Bardotte-esque style. Now as somebody with very fine straight hair volume is something I am forever on a hunt for, i’ve tried so many products but nothing has ever really worked. But alas the Geordie Blow Dry may be my saviour, I will definitely be trying out some of the techniques shown next time I go out into Newcastle.
