DYO Fabulous Jewellery Pre-Launch Party

As part of Newcastle Fashion Week, I was invited along to Nancy’s Bordello (one of my favourite local bars) for a pre-launch event for DYO Fabulous Jewellery. This was the only event I was able to attend throughout Fashion Week due to a hectic timetable with my final year at University. However as an avid jewellery maker myself I jumped at the chance to attend and rejigged my schedule especially. One of the main reasons I wanted to attend this event is because of my interest in the brand itself and their overall concept. DYO Fabulous Jewellery is a brand…

The Bloggers Teaspoon – North East Bloggers Meet Up

Now I ADORE blogger meet ups and i’ve said many times before they are my favourite event to attend. There really is nothing better than spending an afternoon drinking tea and eating cake with a group of likeminded people. So when my best friend and blogger Rachel asked me to be the official photographer of her Bloggers Teaspoon even in aid of Lupus, I couldn’t say no. So off I headed, with the aid of my boyfriend to help me carry a truck load of  amazing caramel cupcakes I made for the event, definitely a recipe i’m going to feature on…

Chummy, Coffee and Cupcakes.

Today I took advantage of the gorgeous weather and headed into Newcastle for a coffee date with my bestie Rachel (AKA Chummy) for a catch up as it feels like an age since we last had a get together.

I whole heartedly regret this decision as it is DE-LIGHT-FUL! Furniture made from wooden…

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…

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…
