Soap & Glory Giveaway

At the weekend I attended the Fabb bloggers event in Newcastle. It was a lovely event hosted by two fellow North East Bloggers, Tor & Rae, in Tiger Tiger Newcastle. I won’t go into too much detail because I’m sure a lot of my readers were there with me but it was great fun and I loved meeting everyone! One thing Fabb did really well though was competitions – there were loads of them and this got me in the mood for my own giveaway.

Internacionale had teamed up with Now…

I enlisted the help of Amy and we headed through to Newcastle armed with a camera. This wasn’t just a TK Maxx style challenge though – I decided this needed to be a colour challenge. Since I normally…

North East Fashion : Sunny Days

The weather has been absolutely beautiful (compared to the snow) the past few days and to celebrate the sun I’ve been wearing my favourite wedge heels to run errands and dash to meetings in. These bad boys are from New Look – I bought them early last year in the Sunderland Bridges store sale and they are seriously the most comfortable shoes I own. I could run a marathon in them! I can’t find the exact pair on the site because they’re not new but New Look do offer some similar ones. Apparently our good spell of weather is soon…
