Two Blue Band Sticky Fingers Middlesbrough

After a little break away from the blogging scene I’m back to share a fab local band for you to check out. A couple of weeks ago I finally got to watch my best friend’s fiance live in action doing what he loves. He’s a drummer in a fantastic band called Two Blue Band. I think it’s so cool to be able to say one of my friends is in a band, that automatically makes me cool too, right? Anyway, one Saturday night we popped down to Sticky Fingers on Linthorpe Road in Middlesbrough to give the band a listen and have a few drinks.  View Post

Fake Bake Lip Inflate

Over the last few years, my love for beauty has grown dramatically. Slowly but surely I’ve been learning how to apply eye shadow properly and perfecting my liquid eyeliner application technique – I’m getting there! After buying my first Charlotte Tilbury lipstick last year and being gifted my first Urban Decay Vice lipstick from my lovely friends Jade & Gordy, I’ve become a little obsessed with lipstick. It’s amazing how much a lipstick can both complement and change your look. Now that I’ve started to experiment more with lipstick, I’ve noticed how much my terrible lip-biting habit is, meaning my lips are constantly chapped. Not only this, my lips are really small too which means I don’t get the finished look that I want. I’d love for my lips to be a little bit bigger but I’m not the type to get cosmetic surgery. I’m not against it but for me personally I don’t think I would go to such extremes. Fortunately I came across a lip plumper that promises the same effects as without the risks and high cost of lip fillers so I decided to give it a go. View Post

Gym kit - Realistic Fitness Goals and Tips on How to Start your own Fitness Journey

Since starting a career which requires me to spend long periods of time sitting at a desk, working out has really helped me to stay active, relieve stress and keep in shape. During 2016 I managed to achieve and maintain a body shape I’m relatively happy with. No one’s ever completely satisfied with the way that they look but I’m definitely the most body confident I’ve ever been. With a new year comes a new perspective, I don’t like to set resolutions so instead I’m going to set some realistic goals for me to work towards in 2017.  View Post

I’m back with my first post of 2017 which is a very appropriate, cliche reflection post of the last year. I was umming and ahhing about writing this one as I was glad to see the back of 2016 and start afresh. I didn’t feel like I had a great year but it’s always good to reflect and be grateful of the positive things that happened. View Post

IT’S CHRISTMAS EVE! My blog has seriously lacked Christmas posts this December and I’m sorry about that! Whilst it looks like I’ve been a bit of a scrooge, I’ve actually being gallivanting to try and visit as many Christmas markets as I can. The best part about a Christmas market for me is the twinkly lights, the jolly atmosphere and the hearty food! I don’t tend to buy an awful lot from the markets as I usually get most of my gifts online but I love to take in the festive atmosphere nonetheless. This year I’ve visited local markets such as the Stewart Park Frost Fair and the Luxury Christmas Fayre at Gisborough Hall as well as markets further afield like the Berlin Christmas markets and Winter Wonderland in London which is what I’m talking about today.
