That Lame Company Haul & Review*


thatLAMEcompany, an online, independent stationery company, has been buzzing around my social media feeds for a while now. I guess the name makes the company recognisable, not to mention the endless amounts of praise I was reading on my Twitter timeline for their products. Needless to say, I was intrigued and wanted to try something from thatLAMEcompany. I was happy to see the company had kindly gifted some of the products for the Blogger Tiki Party event so I could see what all the fuss was about!

Lush Halloween 2016 Haul


Lush's Halloween 2016 dropped on the 23rd September  - a week earlier than usual! I'm guessing so there is time between Halloween and Christmas stuff, but either way, I was super excited to get my hands on a few products for the spooky season.

The Lush Creative Showcase 2016




*Warning - Picture heavy post!* I almost wet my pants when I managed to get tickets to the first Lush Creative Showcase. As a Lush addict, being a fan from a young age and having previously worked there, I was ridiculously excited to be heading down to the Creative Showcase. The day offered the chance to have a sneak preview of the Halloween and Christmas products launching later this year. I went down to the Showcase with local bloggers Katrina and Sarah, and I couldn't think of any better girls to spend the day with!

Crafter's Companion Chesterfield Opening





Growing up, I was always encouraged to try crafts. My Mother is a lover of crafts, from quilting to painting, so it seems natural that both my sister and I are avid crafts and arts people.

When I received an email in my inbox about a new Crafter's Companion store opening in Chesterfield, I was really quite intrigued to see what the shop was all about. Crafter's Companion is an international craft supplies company who want to put the fun into crafting. Started by founder Sara Davies, Crafter's Companion provides crafting supplies (literally every type of craft item you could wish for) as well as a range of CD's that can teach you the best techniques for your latest crafting adventures. The Chesterfield store is the second branch of Crafter's Companion, alongside their popular website, and is opening inside Dobbies Garden Centre.

PaperChicCo Haul & Review








There's nothing more satisfying than coming across a product you've been searching for for ages. I am a big fan of writing and making lists. When I blog, I find myself jotting my ideas and schedules down more frequently than typing it up on the laptop so finding any kind of blog-related stationery is a Godsend for me.

When I came across PaperChicCo, an independent stationery company run by fellow blogger Claudia, on Twitter I instantly fell n love with the clean, pastel based designs and knew I had to order some notebooks for myself. PaperChicCo has a selection of notepads and organisers designed specifically for bloggers, along with cute stationery items like washi tapes and pencils, plus a huge range of downloadable blogging organiser printouts on their Etsy page.

What to do in Manchester


Have you ever visited a city that you fell in love with instantly? Manchester was that city for me. Having never been before, I decided to head up to Manchester with my good friend Charlotte for a spot of shopping, cocktails, and good food. It is safe to say that I was not disappointed!

Manchester is an industrial city in the North West of England. Despite being well known for its culture, architecture, textile history and football clubs, I had no idea what to expect when I got there. I was amazed at the sheer size of the place; I live near Birmingham so I'm used to big cities but Manchester just seemed to be a maze of quirky independent shops and unusual side streets where you could find yourself lost for the day. A lovely place to be to explore!

So, what impressed me about Manchester? Let me tell you about the places that knocked my socks off during my time there...
