This has been one of my busiest weeks in a while, which has been great, but it also meant that I spent most of Saturday in bed with a migraine because I was doing too much.
This week I’ve still got some big things on, but I’ve decided to slow down a bit, take each day as it comes and hopefully be up to full health quickly.
1. Rosso Meal
You might have seen my post over the weekend about my visit to Rosso in Manchester (if not, you can find it here.) It was such a brilliant night that I wanted to mention it here as well. It was arranged by my friend Georgie, who did a brilliant job of bringing together such a lovely group of girls, with great food and an amazing goodie bag. I already can’t wait for the next one.
2. Salon Success Event
I’ve been lucky enough to work with Salon Success for over a year now, which is why I couldn’t wait to go to their Blogger Christmas Dinner on Thursday. It was my first Christmas event that I had in my diary, and I’ve been looking forward to it for a good few weeks now. I knew some of the bloggers there, but it was also great to meet some new faces too.
3. Stylist Live
I want to do a whole post dedicated to Stylist Live because I had such a brilliant day there and I wanted to share my experience fully. I went with my Mum, who also thought it was great. We got the train early Friday morning to London, fit in a little bit of Christmas shopping, and spent the day at the event, nipping out to experience the Kensington Roof Gardens too, which, if you haven’t been, I would highly recommend – they have real-life flamingos!
I get a lot of inspiration for my blog by my everyday life, but I felt like I was lacking a bit in the last couple of months. I don’t know whether it was the day in bed on Saturday, but I feel really inspired with the ideas I have for this little blog, and I hope that I can pull them off in the next few weeks.
5. Brand Collabs
On the same note, I’ve been really lucky to have been contacted by some amazing brands in the last fortnight who have given me free rein of the campaigns too – always a plus. I can’t wait to share these posts over the next month or so and get your feedback on them.
On Sunday morning, I went for brunch with my good friends Sophie and Abi to Sugar Junction in Altrincham. I hadn’t seen either of them in a few weeks, so it was really lovely to catch up over some great food and coffee. I went for the avocado stack (because I’m basic as hell) and it was absolutely amazing.
7. Ideal Home Show
I was invited to the Ideal Home Show a few weeks ago, and it’s something I’ve been looking forward to ever since. If you didn’t know, my boyfriend and I bought our house together back in March, and I’m always looking for inspiration to make it feel more homey. The show also hosted the food and drink festival and the cake and bake show so we had a really nice afternoon wandering about.
8. Kosmos Taverna
If you know me, you’ll know I’m a huge fan of Greek food – I love the amount of different flavours they use and the fact you can have a bit of everything. We had the set mezze platter, which was three courses of pure deliciousness, and really well priced.
