• American Afternoon Tea at the Karbon Grill Sunderland.

    Last week I was invited along to the Hilton Garden Inn in Sunderland, situated at the Hilton Garden Inn. The hotels very own Karbon Grill restaurant has recently launched an American style Afternoon Tea. So I hopped on the metro after work and headed on over to the Stadium of Light to try it out. You’re probably wondering how an American style Afternoon Tea differs from a classic Afternoon Tea and it’s as simple as instead of cucumber sandwiches and fruit scones its filled with American themed sweets and treats. Filled with mini sliders, calzones, spicy buffalo wings and cheesy…

    A Letter To My Teenage Self.

    (I thought it would be fun to re-do my make-up like 15 year old me) Hello, teenage Alice, it’s adult Alice here and I thought as I’m fast approaching the age of Twenty-Five it was about time I sat down and wrote you a little letter as we have a few things we need to talk about.   First of all, all these weird ‘funny turns’ you’re currently experiencing? These are normal, and you’re not alone in experiencing them. You know how whenever you get close to somebody or meet somebody new and you have to explain to them you…

    If you didn’t know already Autumn is my favourite season of all time. To be honest, those ‘in-between-y’ seasons always attract me the most, when the weather begins to change slightly, but you’re not too hot nor too cold.

As much as I love the idea of warm weather, when summer arrives I’m forever stressing about what to wear as I’m not that…

    Being an Introvert.

    Online personality tests, Buzzfeed quizzes or even Myers Briggs, they all tell me one thing. I’m an introvert, even Pottermore sorted me into Hufflepuff. FYI I bloody love being a Hufflepuff, I even have some Hufflepuff knickers that are hideously yellow and make me laugh whenever I put them on – maybe that’s a little TMI, sorry. But basically, I am an introvert! But what exactly does that mean? Urban Dictionary defines it as: ‘Opposite of extrovert. A person who is energised by spending time alone. Often found in their homes, libraries, quiet parks that not many people know about, or…

    On Wednesday We Wear Pink.

    📷 : Helen & Chloe Jacket: Zara     Top: Boohoo     Jeans: Asos     Boots: *George      Bag: Primark Ever since I first laid my eyes on this baby pink Zara biker jacket, I knew it had to be mine. Initially, I’d seen it in a mustard yellow, however already owning a similar suede mustard jacket from Missguided I decided to let it pass. Then the pink one was released and that was it. After weeks of checking daily (I kid you not) it finally came back in stock and I ordered it at such speed the delivery address was for Alice Alice. This was…
