Brunch: Poached Eggs and Avocado

Brunch pictures dictate Instagram on a weekend with delicious egg dishes, sweet and savoury waffles and cooked breakfasts taking centre stage. So, this weekend the sun has been shining and whilst many bloggers have been walking the cobbles at Somerset House, I’ve been working my way around the kitchen. I decided to try my hand…

Rock on Ruby Clothes Swap Blogger Event

Last weekend I was lucky enough to attend the Rock on Ruby blogger event in Manchester. It was a fabulous afternoon, held at Font Bar near Oxford Rd station. It’s always lovely to attend events and meet a whole host of bloggers from across North-West. The theme of the meet up was a clothing, accessories…

Divas Glam Vegas flew into Manchester, allowing us North-West based bloggers to experience the Vegas lifestyle for one night only. Held at the gorgeous Milton Club on Deansgate, we were treated to delicious cocktails, a…

Five signs you are on the wrong side of 25….

Ageing can sometimes be a struggle, but the older you get  you start to realise it’s not so bad. I mean who wants to be 21 still anyway.. The new choker trend. You remember it the first time round and rocked it well as a funky looking 10 year old at the school disco. However…

Argan Dew Hair Oil: Review

It’s been a while since I dipped my toe in the beauty blogging while, but a few weeks ago I got chatting to Argan Dew on Twitter about their products and I was really intrigued. I have really thick, dry hair that need a lot of treatments and attention on a regular basis. I get…

Parklife Festival: My return to blogging…

Once again, long time no blog. This year I keep falling in and out of love with blogging, but after a few months away I have started to miss it. I stopped reading blogs daily too after feeling quite dis-connected with it all and the ‘community’ but I’m determined to turn that around starting now….

A weekend spent in the Lake District

Every now and again its lovely to get away and do  something a little different at the weekend and this weekend just gone, I did exactly that. One of  my oldest friends Katrina is due to get married in April and her hen do was held at Eskdale in The Lakes. Her sister had arranged…

2013- Yearly Round-Up

A popular blog post that is doing the rounds at the moment is the 2013 round up post. Last New Years I was really sad to see the back of 2012 as it was such a fun, awesome year and I didn’t know if 2013 could live up to the hype. Well it some ways…

Only need the light when its burning low

For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted one of the Cambridge Satchel Company bags, but I just couldn’t commit so much money on a single purchase and had no clue what colour to choose. I invested in a Zatchels bag earlier this year, during their 50% off birthday sale, but recently Cambridge Company…

Weekend Round Up

As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, this weekend was my turn to cook in my friends and I versions of ‘Come dine with me’. Being the only one who still lives at home, and in a bid to stop my Ma wondering through to get a brew, my turn was based at my best friends…

We have been blessed with amazing weather from June right through to this coming weekend, if the weather reports are to be believed and it didn’t disappoint this past weekend went I attended V Festival in Stafford on Saturday. Myself and Natalie who…

My Dream Writer’s Space

When it comes to blog content, my inspiration for posts can never be pinned down to one ‘thing’. Articles I read in magazines, the newspaper, the Metro on the bus, news articles I catch on the 6 0’clock news. Conversations with friends, rediculous Facebook status updates, tweets that make me think. Having WordPress on my Blackberry…

Yearly Round-Up

I don’t know about you guys but I can’t believe Christmas is over and the New Year is right around the corner. The build-up seemed to last for such a long time this year, with the shops starting super-early and the decorations going up at the start of the month and then the 25th passed…

‘Live, Laugh, Love’

It’s been a while since I offered a little life-update on here so here goes…. Since April I have been working for Matalan as Online Copywriter which is a job I absolutely love. It’s amazing to work within the E-Commerce dept of such a busy team and see the team grow. Plus the added bonus of…
