The Press Tent Blogger Event

Last Wednesday I was lucky enough to be invited down to The Press Tent blogger event held for Manchester bloggers. Hosted at the super cool Elevator arts space at the Great Northern on Deansgate, there was an amazing turn out, range of cool brands and a lovely personalised touch from the Press Tent gang. I got to chat to TwinFace jewellery, twins who make gorgeous pieces of jewellery at tier kitchen table and decided to turn it into a business. I loved the delicate gold and ivory pieces. One website to check out this summer!      It was lovely to spot Holly from Rock on Ruby on Ruby, who had a beautiful range of gym wear and make up bags featuring the slogans the brand is best known for.  And I turned it a little bit of a fangirl when I spotted Emma from What Emma Did. Having read her blog for many years it was so nice to say hello and have a nosey at her simply gorgeous boutique collection of dresses.           It was …

Branded Lab PR SS15 Showcase

On Wednesday, once the clock turned to 5.30pm I was out of work and straight on a train into Manchester city centre for the gorgeous Branded Lab PR SS15 Showcase event. Held at the beautiful Rosylee Tea Room in the NQ, it was the perfect place to show us NW bloggers the floral prints, brightly coloured accessories and gorgeous going-out dresses we will be lusting after this season. The event itself was fantastically put together; gorgeous venue  and delicious cocktails and cake to boot! Events are just a great time to catch up with my fellow bloggers and talk clothes, make-up and instagram! My favourite brands in attendance were Ka Ka Couture who had some lovely co-ord sets with floral prints and Harriet Sanders bags, which were just beautiful. I fell in love right there and then with the bright orange clutch and the powder blue and mustard backpack. All perfect for sunny days! Branded Lab held a Style Challenge on the night too, asking us to select items from across the brands to make …

Rock on Ruby Clothes Swap Blogger Event

Last weekend I was lucky enough to attend the Rock on Ruby blogger event in Manchester. It was a fabulous afternoon, held at Font Bar near Oxford Rd station. It’s always lovely to attend events and meet a whole host of bloggers from across North-West. The theme of the meet up was a clothing, accessories and beauty swap. It was the perfect opportunity to have a little Spring clean and rid a couple of items from my wardrobe that I’d bought but still had the tags on, oops! There was a great turn-out and I managed to pick up a gorgeous long, gold necklace and a gold eyeshadow. I steered clear from the rails of clothes as I have too many as it is! As I was in Manchester I thought I’d head over to Primark and pick up another one of their coconut and vanilla candles which I blogged about here – I’m a bit obsessed at the minute! After a quick pit-stop for some lunch at Dough in the NQ and a visit to …

Viva Las Vegas glam with Thomas Cook

Last Wednesday I was lucky enough to be invited along to an exclusive blogger event hosted by Thomas Cook airlines. Divas Glam Vegas flew into Manchester, allowing us North-West based bloggers to experience the Vegas lifestyle for one night only. Held at the gorgeous Milton Club on Deansgate, we were treated to delicious cocktails, a make-up station and a Britney Spears lookalike no less – complete with a performance of Toxic The dress-code was sparkles, sequins and fabulous. I decided on a metallic gold shift dress – perfect for a day at work and a slick of dark berry lipstick applied on the train into the city. The event was nothing like I’d been to before. The team at Thomas Cook explained how it’s cheaper to fly from Manchester to Vegas, New York and Miami than anywhere else in the UK. And, they wanted to treat Northern bloggers to the glitz and glam that can only be experienced in one of the sassiest cities in the world – Las Vegas. It was so lovely to …
