Photography Masterclass with Elouisa Georgiou and Viking Office Supplies.

On a sunny and slightly sticky evening last week, I headed along to The Botanist in Newcastle for an event unlike any other I’ve attended. Viking hosted a blogger photography masterclass with Leeds based photographer Elouisa Georgio, where a group of us learnt tips and advice on how to improve our blog photography. The evening began with Elouisa talking us through the fundamentals of photography, such as ISO, Shutter Speed and Aperture. All of which are essential for anybody wanted to take good quality photographs. After we had been briefed on how a camera works, we were given a few tips and tricks…

LUSH NEWCASTLE: HALLOWEEN AND CHRISTMAS SHOWCASE

Now I’ve been a huge lover of Lush for as long as I remember. One of the first blogger events I went to was a Lush event back in 2013. So when Lush Newcastle announced they were hosting a blogger event I jumped at the chance to go. This event was to promote the launch of the new Halloween and Christmas range – and we all got the first glimpse before the shop was open to the public. On arrival we were all greeted with name badges, fruit juice and a range of Vegan pizzas that had been generously supplied…

Dining at 100ft with Chaophraya and S.Pellegrino

Dining at 100ft with Chaophraya and S.Pellegrino   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. We were told to…

CarnLIVal – Hope Street Hotel Liverpool

Last month Yasmina and I 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 were 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…

Hive Coffee Company at Jarrow Hall.

Last Thursday evening I attended the V.I.P launch of Hive Coffee Company, a cafe based in Jarrow Hall which opened at the weekend. The cafe is a collaboration between two friends, Eve McPadden and Sarah Daglish, and they’re helping bring the old Bede’s world site back to life. I remember visiting Bede’s world on a school trip in year 3 and was sad to hear of its closure. But thanks to the charity Groundwork the site has been re-launched in October 2016 as Jarrow Hall, Anglo-Saxon Farm, Village and Bede Museum. The cafe itself is based in Jarrow Hall, a…
