What is Bongos Bingo? Bongo’s Bingo is the new craze sweeping the UK. At first I thought “not for me”. But then I saw it EVERYWHERE. Then an invite to attend landed in my inbox and I thought, right, it’ll be an experience, let’s do this.  Then I saw that 5ive were doing a Bongos Bingo gig here in Newcastle, and I WAS SOLD. If you didn’t know, 5ive was one of my favourite bands when I was little. My mum and I used to sing along to them all the time and the chance to see them live I…

Exploring Derwent County Park & Our 1 Year Borrowmydoggy anniversary!

Exploring Derwent County Park & Our 1 Year Borrowmydoggy anniversary!

Hello there! Oh it feels so good to be writing back on the blog! If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you’ll know I’ve been trying to survive my masters dissertation as well as resits. Thankfully, I’ve only got another couple of weeks to go to finish my dissertation. It feels so good to just write for the sake of writing, not for academic reasons. So todays’ blog post is a super happy one for me and I couldn’t wait to share it. Teemo has been staying over a couple of nights a week, for the past couple of…

Great Exhibition of the North: The Design Trail with Tyne and Wear Metro

Great Exhibition of the North: The Design Trail with Tyne and Wear Metro

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…

Antler Newcastle VIP Launch

Antler Newcastle VIP Launch

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…

Fashion: In The Frow X Fenwick Summer Styling Tips

Fashion: In The Frow X Fenwick Summer Styling Tips

I will admit how much I fangirl over In The Frow. Victoria has been one of my blogging inspirations for years and her content continues to inspire and amaze me. Way back in January, I attended the Google Pixel event which was hosted by Victoria. For me that was a chance to meet someone whose content I had admired for years, play with some amazing tech and I even got to chat cameras with Alex. Last week when I saw that she was hosting an event with Fenwick in Newcastle to talk summer fashion, I immediately booked my ticket. To get…

24 | A birthday lunch at the Dog and Scone (I met a Corgi!)

24 | A birthday lunch at the Dog and Scone (I met a Corgi!)

Hey There! I cannot believe I’m now 24. It really does feel like the past few years have slipped away without me really noticing them! As I type this, I’m looking above my wardrobe at a canvas my parents had printed for my 21st. On it are loads of family pictures of me over the years, some from Disney, my first day at secondary school and my embarrassing toothy gap from when I was seven! I cannot believe I received that three whole years ago… So 24 finally hit and i’m still a little unsure how I feel about it.…

Checking out the new Mcdonald’s!

Checking out the new Mcdonald’s!

McDonald’s has been part of my life since forever. When I was a kid, my Mum used to save happy meal toys from when she had them and give them to me ( I had a lot of them!). At university, it’s become a ritual on a night out to grab a McDonald’s before the taxi home! So when they invited me to go behind-the-scenes at their restaurant at the Silver Link I was quite excited to see what new exciting changes they’ve made!  We entered the restaurant and were greeted by the lovely staff who gave us a bit…

I’M MOVING OUT!

I’M MOVING OUT!

Hey There! I have been MIA on the blog for most of the summer for lots of different reasons but I’m hoping to stick around from September onwards on a more organised schedule. Why have I been gone? Well… I’m moving! I can’t believe it is finally time for me to start packing up my life as a student. I’m coming to the end of my tenancy in my student halls flat and I am so sad about it. I’ve loved living here on the whole and learned so much from living alone. At the moment I’m sat surrounded by…

Pushing past the procrastination- making time for exercise!

Pushing past the procrastination- making time for exercise!

Procrastination is honestly my biggest problem at the moment. I have so much going on right now with sorting my life out after graduation- flat hunting, packing and full time job hunting that I kind of don’t have spare time. However, I do seem to find the time to watch Netflix and TV everyday. I have a confession to make… I watch between 3 and 4 hours a day of Netflix or TV minimum at the moment. I honestly feel like a bit of an addict when it comes to TV series. Whilst spending a lot of time at home…
