Miu Miu MU52SS Sunglasses from SmartBuyGlasses

Hi, I’m Rachel and I’m a serial Sunglasses Hoarder. I have a thing with sunglasses and throughout the years, I’ve kind of grown quite the collection of shades. I’m that girl who will take 7 pairs of sunglasses for a 5 day trip. You gotta have options, am i right? For a very long time, I’ve dreamt of owning a pair of Miu Miu Sunglasses so when Smart Buy Glasses sent over a pair of the Miu Miu MU52SS shades, I was over the moon. I thought I’d do a post all about these dreamy sunglasses, also because I know…

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…

2016

As 2016 draws to a close, It’s time to reflect on the year. I always do a round-up type of post at the end of the year as I think it’s quite nice to look back on my favourite memories. These types of posts are the ones I’d love to read back on in a couple of years. Personally, I’ve had a pretty good 2016! January January was a pretty quiet month, I went to a couple of events in Leeds which was great to get to know more local bloggers. Search Laboratory and Posh Flooring invited me to Murder…

Crazy About Tiffany’s

That signature little blue box. It doesn’t half make me happy. It’s safe to say I’m Crazy About Tiffany’s.  The brand is unbelievably iconic; featuring in many movies, worn by everyone who is anyone and is an internationally recognisable brand. Last week, Crazy About Tiffany’s* was released in the UK and I was very lucky to get my hand’s on it and give it a sneek preview. I don’t usually review DVD’s but something I definitely do is Tiffany’s. I adore the brand and wanted to take a glimpse into the iconic world of diamonds and little blue boxes. If you’re…

Tips for travelling with hand luggage only

This weekend, I’m heading off on another adventure and I’m in the middle of packing. It’s no secret that wherever I go, I seriously overpack. I’ve been flapping around today not knowing what to take, I also seriously overestimated how big my hand luggage was. Somehow I have managed to pack seven outfits and three pairs of shoes with a whole entourage of electrical items and obviously a big stash of beauty items into my small suitcase.  I thought I would share some of the tips I follow that give me a helping hand when it comes to packing for your…

Missoula Montana Bar & Grill, York

York is basically my second home and my favourite city. There are so many amazing places to eat, drink and visit in York and last week I was invited to try out Missoula Montana Bar & Grill‘s new summer menu. I actually hadn’t heard of this place but it’s apparently been open for just over two years. Missoula Montana Bar & Grill is right on the bank of  the River Ouse on Bridge Street. It lookspretty tiny from the outside but it’s actually huge inside with plenty of outside seating so you can enjoy lovely views over the river. Missoula’s decor…
