My Style Code – Stage 1

For a while I followed Helenlee (@helenleeloves) and was always amazed at the transformations she created with her Style Code sessions and when she got in touch and asked if I’d like to try one – that was simply an offer I couldn’t refuse. To give you a really good overview of my style and why I was in such desperate need I thought it be best to start at the beginning. A little bit about me Before having Alice I was pretty confident and I was in pretty good shape too. I loved shopping and would frequently be spotted…

Dr Martens Newcastle Launch

On my return from Edinburgh Fringe festival at the weekend, I opened my post box to find a collection of bills and a really exciting invitation to the new Dr. Martens Store opening in Newcastle! My first real memory of the Dr. Martens brand was way back in the nineties and my older cousin who wore too much gel in his hair and was into cool new bands like Blink 182 (I’m showing my age here) got a pair!

North East Blogger Events

The past month or so has gone by in a bit of flash if I’m perfectly honest and I’ve had more things to blog about than ever before! This is great, it’s just I always have to try and maintain a work/life/blogging balance. So I thought a great idea would be to round up some of the events I’ve attended into one post, rather than try and blog about them separately. First up was The Body Shop event organised by the lovely Maddie who works at the Eldon Sq branch. I was running a bit late to this and when…
