East Midlands Blogger meet up

East Midlands meet-up Leicester

The other weekend I attended a local meet up. Not an event or invitation from a brand but a meet up arranged by some of our local bloggers. It had been in the planning for quite some time and Emma, Kirsty, Kirstie and Lianne worked tirelessly to bring it all together and make it happen. This was no small meet up either, some 40 bloggers had put their name down and everyone turned up! It was held at Manhattan 34, a trendy cocktail bar in the cultural quarter of Leicester city centre. 


RUSH hair comes to Leicester

RUSH Leicester hair salon

A new salon has arrived in Leicester. RUSH. Located on High Street in the city centre so it's easily accessible for everyone. Last week I was invited down to their preview event so we could have a chat about their shiny new salon and talk all things hair!


TILI beauty box first edition from QVC

TILI beauty box QVC review

Say hello to the first edition beauty box from QVC. TILI. I love the name and it stands for Try it, Love it. I love a good beauty box, allowing you to sample products before you part with cash for the full size, only to find it's not really for you. I'm a big fan of the Latest In Beauty boxes but I've a feeling these TILI boxes will be right up there too. I am literally excited by every single one of the products in this box. 


Afternoon tea at The Ritz in London

Making eyes with KIKO || Beauty

KIKO mascara eyeliner eyes makeup

Back in May when we had our (two) holidays to Spain, first one here and second one here I popped in Kiko. When I say 'popped' it was nothing of the sort really. We were down in Marbella for the day and I knew they had a store there. I wrongly assumed it would be in the town. Oh no, that would be too easy wouldn't it?! Mr C tapped it in the sat nav, which we both assumed (wrongly) would get us there quick smart. Wrong again. It took us on a tour, up hills, down what look like dirt tracks and off up the mountains (more or less). Anyway to cut a long story short we got there eventually to my total excitement. You see I was after a particular product, a facial self tanner to be exact. Bloody discontinued wasn't it. I obviously didn't want it to be a wasted journey so I forced myself to shop for other items. I probably didn't need anything but, you know!!!


Bloggers BIG night out with Meridian Leisure Leicester

A few weeks back I had an email invite I could not refuse. Several bloggers were invited to Meridian Leisure Park in Leicester for a night of food, drinks and entertainment. I mean who would turn that down?! We were able to take a plus one so Emily came along to join in the fun.

The other week a select group of bloggers were invited to an event at Farringdon & Forbes, the new luxury home fragrance brand on the block. Located in Resorts World Birmingham the store oozes style and elegance and is definitely the type of store to lure me in without hesitation.

The other week myself and the local blogger crew were invited down to L'Occitane in Highcross, Leicester to help celebrate the fact that this luxury skincare brand have been around for 40 years!! I've been a fan of L'Occitane for a few years, mainly fragrance and body products so this was one event I was not going to turn down.
