House of Fraser SS17 Press Day

It was a wonderful coincidence that I was invited to the House of Fraser SS17 press day when I was actually in London. I get serious cases of FOMO with living up North and missing out on some fab blogger events and press days. The House Of Fraser press day was held at One Marylebone where I’d previously been to an event with Heathrow Airport. Fun Fact: It’s also the venue where Tom Fletcher (from McFly) sung his famous wedding speech. Anyway, it’s a beautiful venue! I was really excited to see what is in store for Spring/Summer 2017 in House…

Casual Winter Look + Saving Money with Amazon

When it comes to shopping, it’s always good to save pennies and get a bargain, right? I’ve been saving a few pennies recently by shopping on Amazon’s Fashion section. Amazon stock high street favourites such as New Look, Miss Selfridge, Boohoo.com and Mango. I particularly love New Look and the prices on Amazon are usually a lot cheaper than the website. Today’s outfit which is my go-to casual winter look, features a few bargains that I’ve picked up from Amazon.  The thigh high boots featuring in today’s outfit were bought last year for £26 when they were £46 in store.

January Fashion Wishlist

Despite promises about going on a spending ban, the high street keeps dragging me back in. A little window shopping can’t hurt though, right? It also seemed the right time to do a wishlist as there’s a lot of items grabbing my attention. I’m currently in that awkward phase where we are in between seasons but I still need a few new jumpers (& some new jeans, boots and maybe a new jacket whilst I’m making a list) as it’s so cold out. I’m also going on a little trip in a couple of weeks and it’s set to be…

A Weekend In Manchester with Mercure

The weekend before Christmas, I was invited along to Manchester by the lovely people at Talented Talkers and Mercure to take part in their #ExperienceMercure Campaign. Of course, I said yes and invited Hayley along for the ride. A little warning that this post is pretty festive for mid-January! First stop after arriving at Manchester Piccadilly was obviously for food. We had a few recommendations about checking out The Northern Quarter and decided on one of my favourite places; Almost Famous (my Leeds AF review). I knew Hayley would love it here, especially with the crazy maple candy and bacon…

My 2016 Beauty Favourites

My 2016 Beauty Favourites is better late than never, right? I was in two minds over doing this post as my everyday make-up bag still very much resembles 90% of my 2015 Beauty Favourites. Although it’s not as long as last year’s favourites, there still has been some amazing stand out products I’ve discovered in 2016. The Balm Mary-Lou Manizer Starting off with probably my #1 product of 2016 and that’s The Balm’s Mary-Lou Manizer highlighter. You’ve probably heard about it from other bloggers or if you’re friend of mine, I’ll have forced you into buying it. I own a…
