Barker and Stonehouse

Last month me and my mam attended the Barker and Stonehouse open day at Teesside Park, Stockton where Great British Bake Off judge and award-winning writer, Mary Berry, graced us with her presence. I’d been looking forward to the opening of the new flag-ship store for a while now and Mary Berry’s guest appearance was the icing on the cake (hehe, how could I resist?). View Post

Chocolate Birthday Cake

One of my earliest memories involves me helping my mam bake jam tarts and getting covered in flour. With this in mind, I’ve always been a keen baker but since leaving college and entering the working world, I’ve neglected the kitchen. However, now that I’ve got my own house and spend much more time in the kitchen cooking meals, I’ve fallen in love with baking all over again!   View Post

Last week I attended the launch party of Psyche’s brand new eCommerce site on behalf of Visualsoft. In just 13 weeks, Visualsoft has managed to design and launch the new website for the local fashion department store which is a massive achievement. Competing with the elite including Harrods and Selfridges, Psyche has won a number of recognisable awards which include the title of Retailer of the Year by FHM and GQ magazine’s Best Menswear Shop. To rival its competitors, Psyche decided to create a bigger and better online platform for customers to buy from. View Post

Clarisonic Mia 2 summer edition

Since being a teenager I’ve always had a problem with my skin. Not to the extent of acne but I don’t think there was ever a time when my skin was clear. Believe it or not, it wasn’t until my late teens that I started to wear foundation as I thought the more make up I wore, the more the pores on my face would clog up and cause hideous spots. Having left my teens a few years ago, I thought troubled skin would be a thing of the past however I still get the frequent, blatant spot that makes me reckless. View Post

DSC_0419There’s nothing quite like buying some new gym gear to help motivate you to go to the gym. I’d been eyeing up the Miss Guided Active collection ever since I saw the photographs of the super toned Em Sheldon wearing some pieces from the range. The new collection is affordable and fashionable which a rare combination to find when fitness clothing is involved! When payday came around last month,  I decided to finally make a purchase by opting for the grey ‘Train Dirty’ vest (£12), the cross back sports bra in mint (£10) and the contrast panel cropped leggings also in mint (£14) to create a full outfit.
