My First Attempt at Shelf Styling

Here’s a little interiors update with my first shelf styling attempt in our living room! Our house is a mix of modern with some mid-century touches and a mix of monochrome with colour added in – plus it’s a mix of both me and Luke so the finished product is something that looks a little bit like this. I love shelf styling, I think it’s so clever – I’ve been poring over Pinterest for a few weeks now and finally decided to give it a little go.

Getting Ready for Girls Night with I Heart Wines

You know what the best deliveries are? WINE DELIVERIES! I Heart Wines were kind enough to send me this little taster pack of their wine selection to see what I thought. I’m saving them up for a little wine & cheese night with the girls so I can’t wait for that.

What’s great about these baby-bottles of wine is that you don’t have to waste any! I love a glass of wine but I never buy a whole bottle unless we’re having a get together because I won’t get through the whole thing. They also sent the cutest Boomf marshmallows with their logo on which was a really nice touch. I Heart Wines are currently re-doing their website so I’ll be excited to see that when it goes live.

Spring/Summer Accessories with East Midlands Designer Outlet

My first McCarthurGlen Designer Outlet experience was at Cheshire Oaks when I got lost with my mum on the way back from somewhere when I was about 10, I think! We thought we’d found the Mecca of shopping, it was awesome. So, when East Midlands Designer Outlet invited me along for a day of shopping to check out what they had on offer as part of their Spring/Summer accessories campaign, I was excited to say the least. photo IMG_7983_zpsvxexr2mr.jpg

Current Lusting – Saturday Wishlist!

Being on a serious spending ban definitely makes you want to shop more! Working in social media also doesn’t help as I’m constantly on retailer websites looking up new collections, fresh trends and the like so I’m always spotting new things I’d love to have in my wardrobe. These are the current things I’m dying to get my hands on… There’s a little monochrome and gold theme going on apparently, I hadn’t noticed until I put it together!

Red's True Barbecue Opening Night

On Wednesday morning an email popped into my inbox inviting me to the opening press night of Red’s True Barbecue in Nottingham on Thursday evening. To say I was excited would be an understatement. We’ve been hot on this place’s heels for months now, ever since we saw the signs going up for a new barbecue establishment in the centre of town! I hadn’t heard of Red’s before but Luke had assured me that it’s awesome as they already have places in Leeds and Manchester and we started social media stalking them like nothing else!  photo IMG_7880_zpshllvekzo.jpg
