A High Street Shopping Experiment | Where The Nice People Are Round 2

Yonks ago, back in what feels like the blogging dark ages, I wrote a blog post about where the nicest shopping experiences were to be had.  Just as a little experiment to show appreciation for the friendly people who make your day that bit nicer.  And yesterday I decided 3 years down the line to do High Street Experiment Round II, with different shops, and see where had the friendliest staff and who made for the nicest experience as a…

GoGlam Gala Bloggers Event | A Short London Trip

In case you hadn’t gathered from my 5696 tweets this week, I headed down to London for a swanky blogger bash going by the catchy hashtag #GoGlamGala on Thursday night.  As a Northern gally I don’t make it to many London events (girl gotta justify that time and train fare) but this one was well worth heading down for!  My lovely friend Tasmin and I hopped on the train on Thursday afternoon and enjoyed an altogether very glam and fun time….

Our Changing Tastes in Blogging | What Do We Actually Want to Read and Write Anymore?

Good morning/evening/whenever the hell this goes up.  I’m writing this in the bath, on a Tuesday morning, jotting notes in a new notebook that I seriously hope I don’t now drop in the water.  It almost seems more risky than holding my phone.  I wonder how many phones have been casualties of trying to take a cute bath snap and slipping because your bath bomb made the bottom all slidey? I’m aiming to spend less time aimlessly scrolling (at what…

The Struggle to Pull Yourself Together After Christmas and New Year

Hands up who’s failing a couple of their goals already?  My room’s a tip and I’ve blogged once in 5 days so erm, those two have gone down the toilet already.  Nevertheless, there’s hope for the rest! Can I also get a hands up from all the people who are struggling to kickstart their brain again after Christmas?  Seriously I think my brain cells have deteriorated and the ‘it’s 6pm, what have I actually done all day?!?’ feelings are kicking…

A Christmas Eve Thank You

Merry Christmas Eve my lovelies! I’m writing this from the comfort of the sofa I’ve been welded to for the last couple of hours, the fire is on, family are round, Harry Potter is on the telly (Home Alone 2 has already finished) and much chocolate and biscuits have been eaten. It’s rather too idyllic so I’m pretty sure something will go wrong soon.  Oh and I haven’t even finished my wrapping… but as long as it’s done before tomorrow…

The LBD that hugs in all the right places | Hitting Christmas saturation point early

Was only so long before I’d be cracking out the festive party outfits wasn’t it?  I feel like everything I could say on the topic of Christmas party dressing has been said before a million times over, so I won’t pretend that my choice of black and sparkly is anything groundbreaking.  If it ain’t broke don’t fix it though, right? A little black dress will always, always be a winner, and there’s something to be said for keeping to styles that…

The Things I’m Not Allowed To Say

Right now, I’m sat on an armchair on a Sunday morning in my pyjamas and feel like I want to thrash out something really personal. My fingers are hovering over the keyboard and twitching in that weird way like I want to type something really fast and furiously, you know? Or maybe that’s just me lol.  To be honest I don’t even know exactly what I’d like to say – I just know that I want to write something meaty-ish. …
