Macy Browns Cocktail Masterclass - Rasputin

My favourite place for a couple of cool cocktails and a catch up with my friends has got to be Macy Browns in Middlesbrough. The vibe is amazing, playing funky old school music with a mix of soul and Motown, I just can’t get enough of the laidback vibe it brings to the town centre. Last Wednesday I went along with three of my friends for a cocktail masterclass to celebrate one of the girl’s birthdays. Today I’m sharing our experience with you and how you can grab this experience for less than a tenner!  View Post

The Baker Street Kitchen

Middlesbrough is quickly becoming the place to be when it comes to dining out. With the fast growth from neighbourly streets, Baker Street and Bedford Street, independent businesses are booming. Offering a combination of wonderful eateries and quaint shops, there’s no better place to visit whilst in the town. A place I’ve been wanting to try for a while is The Baker Street Kitchen which is located on the corner of Baker Street nearby centre square. After hearing rave reviews of their all day breakfast menu I knew I wanted to try the food for myself.  View Post


Last month I travelled down to Nottingham for my friend’s hen party. I’ve never been to a hen party before so I was really looking forward to letting my hair down with the girls and celebrating the end of my friend’s single life. One of the main parts of the night was a cocktail masterclass which took place at Vodka Revolution at Nottingham’s Cornerhouse. It was a really fun experience and great value for money so I thought I’d tell you all a little more about it. View Post

Wynyard Farmers Market

Today I’ve got another farmers market post for you all because lately I just can’t get enough of them. Homemade produce made with the fair hands of local people trying to make a living or simply enjoying a hobby is the best kind of food in my opinion. Late last month me and my mam visited Wynyard for their monthly artisan food market; the sun was shining and there was a good variety of stalls to browse and buy from. The market takes place on the third Sunday of each month, located by the beautiful Wynyard gardens.  View Post

Invisibobbles vs Primark version
A few months ago I was introduced to the traceless hair ring that promises no kinks, no snags and no more headaches from tight bobbles. I originally picked up a pack of five from Primark for £1.50 which included a variety of metallic hair rings with cute charms hanging off them. These were better value than the original Invisibobble which is priced at around £3.95 for three. Today I’m putting both bobbles to the test to see if they work and if they’re worth investing in.  View Post
