It happened, I had my first Afternoon Tea. Yeah I know, it’s taken me 21 years to finally try one of the most insta-worthy experiences. It was worth the wait though, believe me! I visited The Joinery, a gorgeous but rather small tearoom in Newcastle Upon Tyne and I was booked in to try one of their Afternoon Tea’s. The tearoom is a beautiful place, full of light and swoon-worthy decor. I was in love…

Hi everyone! I thought I’d do a post today that was rather informative and insightful. I want my blog to be a place where you can learn, make informed decisions and possibly gain knowledge you didn’t have before about beauty and fashion (and more!) IPL hair removal is something I’ve pondered for a long time and luckily enough, the opportunity has presented itself to me to try it and tell you all what I think…

From the moment my eyes set upon the pretty packaging of the Tartelette In Bloom palette, I knew I had to have it. I didn’t even care if the inside could be colours I’d never use or that it, you know, might not actually be any good. I just HAD to have it in my life, it’s the prettiest thing ever! Purples, pinks, golds. Right up my street. Even the name is gorgeous. After eyeing…

It’s about time that Newcastle got a decent place to consume various forms of meat other than Longhorns (Sorry, Longhorns, you just don’t do it for me…) that have a cocktail menu and focus on slow cooked meats. I jumped at the chance to review Red’s and I shot them over an email asking if I could come along and tell you all what I thought. As soon as we arrived and walked in, we didn’t…

It isn’t hard to find a women that inspires, and it usually starts from home. I’m so lucky to have grown up with inspiring women all around me and it has shape who I am today. I continue to be surrounded by women who are doing outstanding things with their lives and spurring me on to do the same. The new friendships I make are different now, it’s not based on interests – it’s based…

With a new burger place seemingly popping up every week in Newcastle, and my devotion to The Fat Hippo, I have to admit, I hadn’t heard of The Grind. That was until late last year when the lovely Chiesh invited me to their Pop Up launch at the lovely No. 28. Not one to say no to trying a new burger, I hopped along. Spending an evening with both Mandy Charlton and Laura Dawson is always a treat,…

Sometimes it’s hard to accept that your world is changing so quickly around you and that there’s nothing you can do about it. I’m currently going through that period of my life where I’m not a teenager anymore and I have to start figuring my life out. I’m faced with real problems and having to find real solutions, ones school most definitely did not prepare me for. Recently I experienced a loss of someone so…

Hi there! Back again with another food review. What can I say? I love to eat. George’s is a place I’d had my eyes on before it even was announced that it’d be opening in Eldon Square. I’d seen the candy floss gin cocktail floating about on Instagram and immediately stalked their account – and sulked realising there was only one restaurant open in Nottingham. Fast forward a few months and it was announced that…

Their Sweet Peach palette sold out…

Bill’s is a restaurant founded on fresh produce and good food. Bill’s started off as a Green Grocer, selling fresh fruit and vegetables. The shop was hit by a flood, so when they decided that it was time to re-open, they added a cafe! Fast forward a few years and 70+ restaurants later, Bill’s is a chain with a great menu, great staff and great morals. Each restaurant has a shop attached, where you can…
