Books are one of my favourite things. It’s something I’ve wanted to blog about more but never really thought people would be interested in? But as my blog is growing and my life is changing, I’ve decided to make different types of posts! This change got me thinking. How can I have a blog and have not talked about Harry Potter yet?! So I thought I would share with you my book journey this year and a few answers from the Harry Potter Tag! ( I just googled it, if you want to try it!) Harry Potter was such a massive…

So many amazing new restaurants are popping up allover Newcastle. Revolucion De Cuba is the new Cuban inspired restaurant and bar, located right in the centre of town. Rob and I headed there for a special date night…

When I first came to Newcastle, I walked everywhere. I had lived in Newcastle for almost a whole year before I used a local bus or the metro. I was so sure I’d end up lost on it like I did with the tube. Fast forward five years, I commute everyday using the local buses and metro. I’ve come to regard Newcastle as home now. Staying put. There is something so warm and inviting about this part of the country, and it really is a “hidden gem”, and I believe part of what makes it so good up here, is…

25 by 25. This is my weight loss goal. 25lbs weight loss by my 25th birthday. So that’s around 16 weeks left. I’ve been carefully watching my diet and trying to exercise more. At the moment most of my exercise is coming from redecorating the house! A lot of hard graft getting the place cleaned, gutted, walls prepped for painting and then the painting itself. In the next few weeks, I’ll be moving in properly and then the Ikea furniture struggle will begin again! I decided it was time to make a big change when I realised that I had…

It’s time to Go Bananas for The Body Shop new range of body care products. They’re special edition and I had to get them up on the blog asap, as the range smells delicious, just like foam bananas! So, on Friday, Melissa and I were invited along to a blogger event at my local The Body Shop store to try out the new seasonal banana skincare range. I got a wonderful little hand and arm massage using the new body yoghurt, got to make my own personalised body butter sticker and got the most amazing makeover. The new skincare range…

    Pushing myself creatively is something that’s always on my mind. Especially with my photography. I love learning new skills and I think that’s why photography is something I enjoy so much. You’ll never run out of things to photograph or techniques to try. I think that’s why my camera kit wishlist will never stop growing! When Viking Direct invited me along to their photography masterclass with professional photographer, Elouisa Georgiou, I had to go. It was hosted at the Botanist in town- a perfect backdrop for beautiful photos. I am still learning how to use manual mode on…

Cameras have always been a central part of my life. I used to beg to use the family camera on holiday, and now I use them in my degree and freelance work and of course, for my blog. My camera collection keeps growing and I am always chasing a new lens, new camera or new editing software. As much as I love my DSLR and my vlogging camera, I’m always looking to up my game. Now that I’m trying to work more on my Youtube channel, I’m looking to try new things. One of those new things,  is a good…

Over the years, I’ve been a brunette, a blonde and a redhead. My hair has become an utter mess due to constant experimentation with it, and I’ve been hating it for awhile now. I was trying to grow my natural hair colour out, in the hopes that I would have long, healthy, natural hair in time for my graduation. Or, at the very least, have natural hair that a hairdresser could transform in November, in time for my birthday and master’s graduation. But spending months scraping my hair back into a bun to hide the ever-growing mess was another thing…

  Now that I have more free time due to the summer holidays, it’s got me thinking that I’m not writing enough. I miss the days when a blog was about recording your life and passions and not just adverts, marketing or discussing big issues or competition. I loved reading blog posts that were just people talking about their everyday lives and in the spirit of the first blogs I ever read, I’ve decided to revive the ‘diary’ tag on my blog. Friday 22nd June 2018- Going for a walk  Today has been wonderful. You know one of those easy…

Newcastle is going through some amazing changes right now with the introduction of plenty of new exciting things to see and do. The newest place to arrive is Antler. I was pretty excited to be invited to the VIP Launch for Antler, the new alpine themed bar in Newcastle. Inspired by the alpine ski lodges from Austria and Switzerland and serving Bavarian food, it’s definitely going to be an exciting addition to the Newcastle nightlife. Located at 55 Degrees North, it’s right in the centre of the city. A few minutes walk from either Central Station or Monument, and also…
