Team LBD ♥

Today I'm sharing a collaboration with the amazing Little Black Dress - this would have been a lot sooner but unfortunately I've been really ill recently and I just didn't feel like I could do this dress justice but hopefully I have now.

Team LBD are based in Manchester and their aim is 'to make you look and feel a million dollars, whatever your special event'. They really do have the most stunning dresses, with over 80 different brands you're bound to find your perfect dress, no matter the occasion.

They are currently running a competition to win your own dress, which you can read about here. Follow them on Instagram and Twitter to enter @teamlbd.

Competition Win: Trip to Scarborough ♥

Friday, 10 June 2016

I was extremely lucky just before Christmas to win a Twitter competition which was a night in a Honeymoon Suite in The Ox Pasture Hall Hotel. This included Afternoon Tea, Evening Meal and Breakfast.
'Ox Pasture Hall country house hotel is privately owned and recognised as the best of the Scarborough hotels and one of the finest luxury hotels in Yorkshire.
Located near Scarborough in the historic North Yorkshire Moors, the hotel is close to the sea and in easy reach of Filey, Whitby, Helmsley and York.
Ox Pasture Hall is set in seventeen acres of its own picturesque grounds and offers a haven for peace and respite from the frantic pace of modern day life, yet the busy seaside resort of Scarborough is only a couple of miles away. 
Here you can enjoy the heather filled moors, scenic dales and the spectacular heritage coastline, all within a few miles of this superb Scarborough hotel.'
This gorgeous hotel is located just a 5 minute drive from my Grandma's so we decided to go a day earlier and stay with her for a night so we could spend some more time there. The day we arrived we headed into Scarborough as there's a lovely fudge shop I know of (I lived in Scarborough for 6 months a few years ago) and we wanted to get some fudge to take home with us. We also enjoyed some yummy fish and chips and a huge ice cream!

Cherry Diva Haul ♥

Tuesday, 24 May 2016

I absolutely adore Cherry Diva. They're an online store that started in 2013 and are committed to bringing customers original, on trend and affordable statement and bohemian jewellery. I've waited until I've built up quite the collection to do this blog post. I bought my first item last summer and I've been addicted ever since.  So I'll show you the goodies I've got.

Darts Night ♥

Thursday, 19 May 2016

I have been so busy lately with finishing my second year of University and trying to find a job that I've been neglecting my blog. I thought I would start it back off with a post from a recent trip to the darts.
I bought my boyfriend some tickets to watch the darts at the MEN Arena in Manchester on 28th April. We decided since we would like to have a few drinks whilst we're there it was better to get a hotel. I had a look on and found a gorgeous hotel for us to stay in called the 'Renaissance Manchester City Centre Hotel'. I got a deal on the website for the room at £86.00 (+£18.00 for their parking), we didn't add breakfast as we thought it was a bit expensive.

Review: Watermelon by Marian Keyes ♥

Thursday, 3 March 2016

At twenty-nine, fun-loving, good-natured Claire has everything she ever wanted: a husband she adores, a great apartment, a good job. Then, on the day she gives birth to her first baby, James visits her in the recovery room to inform her that he's leaving her. Claire is left with a beautiful newborn daughter, a broken heart, and a body that she can hardly bear to look at in the mirror. So, in the absence of any better offers, Claire decides to go home to her family in Dublin. To her gorgeous man-eating sister Helen, her soap-watching mother, her bewildered father. And there, sheltered by the love of an (albeit quirky) family, she gets better. A lot better. In fact, so much better that when James slithers back into her life, he's in for a bit of a surprise.
