If you’ve seen my ‘why I want to move to Leeds‘ or 24h in London posts then you’ll know that we like to check out cities in the UK that we don’t live in! I just think it’s great to know your way around as many cities as you can because, why not? You never know what opportunities will arise and it’s cool to get to know other places just in case! This weekend we headed to Birmingham for the Christmas market to kick off the festive season.
Denim, dressing comfortably and dungarees are 100% part of my daily routine. If it ain’t comfy I’m not wearing it and when dungarees came back in a few years ago I was straight on that trend. Plus, they keep your tummy extra warm in the winter cos extra layer. Yep, I am 25 going on 85, whatcha gonna do?
These personal posts are one of my favourite things to read so I decided to do a bit of my own. Let me know what you think and if there’s anything else you want to know!? I loved reading Robyn’s 6 Kinda Weird Confessions of An Introvert (which funnily enough has pics from the same day as this photo shoot if you’re thinking the backdrop looks *kinda* similar!) because it’s just super interesting to find out more about bloggers behind the blog, don’tcha think? I’m not saying I’m the weirdest or quirkiest person out there by any stretch of the imagination but I just think it’s nice when people find something that they’re like “Yes! I do that too!”.
Browsing beauty counters is something that I’ve loved for years. Swatching the shades, getting mini makeovers and walking away with a treat beautifully wrapped in a gorgeous brand’s packaging? The dream for beauty junkies, right? Totally is! So, this is why I was super excited when a new Nars counter landed in John Lewis in Nottingham city centre and I was invited down to check it out.
Louis Vuitton was founded in 1854 in Paris and over the years, it has become a name associated with fashion and glamorous designs; the brand is now worth over 24 billion dollars (wow). From the beginning, the brand was very exclusive and it started by making luxury luggage for royalty of France. In 1977, there were only two Louis Vuitton shops and now they have over 400 shops all around the world! The price is always a concern when talking about luxury items but this is one of the things that make them so exclusive, of course. Big brands always try to control the type of people buying their products, we know this. Louis Vuitton bags will certainly offer a very unique and glamorous touch to anyone’s wardrobe and with so many different styles, shapes and sizes available, there is a pretty good chance that you’d find the perfect handbag and it will be love at first sight.
I’ve not done a straight up review for a little while but I’m always on the look out for new products and tasty treats that catch my eye so that’s exactly what’s coming your way today. Let me know if you’d like to see more reviews/less reviews – whatever! Just let me know what you think to this post in the comments.
Green is literally everywhere at the moment! It seems to have crept up on us all like the red trend did and I’m loving it. I picked up this super cute floral blouse from Missguided that I showed off on Instagram the other week and I’m really embracing adding some more colour to my wardrobe. I’ve chosen 6 awesome pieces from ASOS that can fit in easily with your style. Just add a touch with accessories or go all out with a dress, just pick your shade!
I love a date night, and I think they’re so important to have! Especially when you’re 4 years into a relationship, it’s really special when you get out together and make an effort. We headed to Veeno last weekend for a little wine tasting action. We’ve done plenty of beer tours and beer tasting but never a wine tasting together so we were excited to see what we thought.
When I heard The Botanist was coming to Nottingham I was super intrigued. I’d actually never visited one before but we’d ventured to The Alchemist in Leeds and I’d of course, heard all about The Botanist on social and from some of my friends that were already The Botanist lovers! So, of course, when the press event rolled around and an invite popped into my inbox I was really excited. I was also excited about the prospect of heading to West Bridgford as I hardly ever head to this side of town.
When you’re in the world of blogging, it can seem to be incredibly social with all of the events and social media interaction but really, if you’re a little bit shy, it can be super lonely. I’ve never got *too* involved with the scene if I’m honest so it can be weird when none of your friends really “get” blogging.
