North East : Women What Do Business Event

The other week I mentioned I’d been invited by Publicity Seekers to be a guest speaker at the North East, Women What Do business event. It had been a long day planning Feel Good Festival with Shannon but we headed off to Cafe One77 in Hartlepool armed with our laptops! The event was a huge success, I was a little shocked by how many people there actually were there! There were several fashion and beauty businesses exhibiting and just as we arrived the food was brought out. So we grabbed a glass of rose and some snacks before I got…

North East : Happy Organic

The other day I was on my way back from a press conference in South Shields (about a music festival but more on this later) and I was so hungry. Been in a bit of a rush on the morning meant I’d missed breakfast and then I was busy taking notes. So I thought since it was a nice day, I’d stop off somewhere on the way back to Sunderland. So I pulled over when I got to Cleadon Village and was heading for my usual sandwich haunt when I spotted Happy Organic! I’m not one for organic food normally…

North East Bank Holidays : Hello Summer

I hate to be one of these people who jumps on the weather bandwagon but today was the first really sunny day this year – I didn’t even have to wear a coat or even a cardigan! After how hectic last weekend was with Feel Good Festival and the zip wire, I decided I’d spend the bank holiday relaxing. Today I woke up late with the sun streaming in my bedroom windows and sat and had breakfast at my table rather than dashing around with a slice of toast. Later I popped into town to do a spot of shopping…

The TeaShed Pop Up Launch : Newcastle

The other week when the lovely Anna from Fenwick dropped me an email inviting me along to the launch of The Teashed Pop Up cafe – I couldn’t say no. I’d already heard lots about The Teashed which was started by Jules Quinn only a couple of years ago. I popped Amy and Shannon a message to see if they were both free and headed through to a very rainy Newcastle. By the time we’d walked in the rain up to Fenwick’s, like any true Brit I was in desperate need of a cup of tea. I know the brand…
