Sample Sale Time (And Possible Haul Video?)


This is the exact face I will be pulling tomorrow night; as I know for a fact when I come home tomorrow with my amazing bargains I will be told to throw away the things I do not use anymore. 

Sorry for the lack of post- but full time job caught up with me (damn it!) I have been so tired but I am coming off lates and will be back to normal functioning hours next week. I also have an entire weekend to visit new places to write about and catch up on some much needed blog posts. 

Today is my work's quarterly year sample sale- which means we get to go in and get some great pieces at bargain prices. As always I will not mention the brand I work for (if you have seen my previous haul posts you will have guess by now) but I have purchased some great pieces over the past month and thought it would be a nice way to do another video and a possible style haul? 

Let me know if this is something you would be interested in and wish me luck today getting some amazing fashion bargains! Keep checking my Instagram for a haul picture- one is bound to show up this weekend! 

Have a lovely weekend and I promise to write regularly soon!

Wardrobe Clean Out | 2015


Every girl has cleaned out their wardrobe once or twice in their life and is pretty familiar with the traumatic routine (it's like picking your favorite children to keep!) The question that I want to ask you is this: are you really doing it right?!?

Healthy Cookbooks To Sink Your Sweet Tooth Into


Those who know me (and some of you readers perhaps) know that I am trying to eat healthy (it has lapses a little in the last few weeks but we are getting there!). The main issues I have are my sweet tooth, its incredibly bad but I cannot resist those sweet treats. The main goal with healthy eating was to fine some good healthy recipes, but also alternatives to sugar and that pick me up we all crave. I am happy to report I have found a few books that help us keep on the straight and narrow.

Last Wednesday night I had such an amazing night with some amazing people. I am not going to lie, I had way too much to drink and was dreading the hangover that was coming my way,so imagine my shock and utter delight when I woke up fresh as a daisy the next day!

Food At Norse | Harrogate


Here on this blog we are all about fine dining (champagne lifestyle, duh!) but this does not always come at tea budget prices. However when L and I friends told us about this great place that is hidden in the unlikeness of places with an incredibly famous chef; you just have to spend a few extra, hard earn pennies. I mean when you work so hard, why not splash out once in a while? 

Now imagine where we went we went for fine dining like the food you see above? Imaging somewhere like The Ritz? Think again...

Anyone who knows me well knows how much I love to take photographs. Even more so, I love to use the Instagram app (it's a bit like an addiction). I don't know what people did before we were took pictures of all our food!!

Belgrave Feast | Leeds


I have heard about the Belgrave Music Hall street feast happening many times since moving here to Leeds, but always found myself either working or too busy to go. Last Saturday I had no excuses, I am on holiday from work, blog fully updated and post scheduled with a gap for Monday so decided this would be the perfect event to photograph and write about. Packing up my bag, I headed out to take some lovely photos and eat some gorgeous food...

Oklahoma Cafe | Manchester


Part four and the final part of Amie and I epic trip to Manchester has sadly come around (no more travel times!) This final post takes place in Oklahoma, a great little cafe and gift shop that was just around the corner from our hotel in the Northern Quarter in Manchester. We only spotted it due to the cute things in the window and then realised it was a cafe. Hungry, cold and exhausted from all the shopping (I mean browsing, just browsing) we headed into the warmth....

Eat Dorshi At Trinity Kitchen


I get excited at most food places, but there are very few places that I get really excited about. Dorshi is one of them and when I heard they were coming back to Trinity Kitchen, I ticked the days off until I could finally eat some of those delicious dumplings!

Kra Kra For Kiko Milano


The best thing about this post is all the items above were purchased in the sale. Now I know I said I was not spending anything on beauty until March (see post here) but ultimately, I have no will power, and my new found beauty addiction kicked in. And I am so glad it did because boy did I pick up some cheap beauties....

Things That Pretty Honest Taught Me


I was so excited when this Amazon order came through the door and even more excited when I got stuck into it. Pretty Honest is a bible for all real women, a witty, wise and truthful handbook for anything to do with makeup and beauty....

Late Night Dinner At Revolucion De Cuba | Manchester


After spending an amazing evening with Thomas Cook Airlines for their Divas Glam Vegas event in Manchester, Sugdie (Amie's nickname that she LOVES, given to her by me- not) and I decided to brave the winter's night and find somewhere for a late night dinner.

The bravery only lasted about six seconds before we decided it was far too cold (plus still snowing) and headed for the nearest place we could find....

Top Two Gadgets For On The Go Blogging


Working full time and blogging just about the same amount of time means taking a lot of gadgets around with me. Sometimes these products need a little help or updating to make them work just that little bit better...

#DivasGlamVegas with Thomas Cook Airlines*


Last Wednesday night I was invited to one of the coolest things I have ever been invited to as a blogger. Thomas Cook Airlines invited myself to The Milton Club in Manchester to celebrate two new flights from Manchester Airport direct to Las Vegas. The theme for the night was Divas Glam Vegas, a night full of all the glitz, glamour and style that Vegas has to offer. 

Thomas Cook very kindly offered to let me bring a fellow diva along with me (you know divas cannot function without their crew) and I knew just the right person to come along for the ride.....
