I’ve had this little hunny (AKA my Olympus PEN) for a few weeks now, but I haven’t had chance to dedicate a whole post to her. Until now that is. She wasn’t easy to get hold of, and that’s an understatement! After going back and forth with a very well known camera retailer for nearly a week I almost gave up on her. But in the end I didn’t, and boy am I glad?! I had a fair few doubts about her before I took the plunge and handed over my hard earned cash. I’ve never been into photography. I enjoy it,…

If you read my post about how much fun I had at the #EastMidsMeetUp then you’ll know that I won a whopping three times on the raffle! Well last week my prize from Ohh Deer was delivered so I thought I’d show you what I won. If you’ve seen any of my Papergang posts then you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of Ohh Deer. So when I saw that their stationery was up for grabs I could not hold myself back! I just had to have it. If you read my first ever Papergang post then this first item will…

If you’ve read my post about the #EastMidsMeetUp last weekend then you’ll be ahead of the game. We were lucky enough to get not just one, but two goody bags!

So yesterday was the day that I have been waiting for for months – the #EastMidsMeetUp! I was super excited because it was my first proper blogger event. I attended the #DerbyBloggersBrunch in May, but that was more of a casual meet up than an event. The #EastMidsMeetUp was organised by Emmie from Carpe Diem Emmie, Kirsty from Kirsty Ralph, Kirstie from Behind the Scent and Lianne from The Brunette Says and took place at Manhattan 34 in Leicester. Around 40 bloggers attended and there were some awesome brands there such as Blogosphere Magazine, Angel Eyes and Danique Hairdressing. The wonderful Charlotte…

I love finding new blogs to read and getting to know other bloggers on Twitter. Especially bloggers similar to myself. But there’s a part of me that feels intimidated by other bloggers. I’m not normally a shy person. I could spark up on a conversation with almost anyone. But I’m easily intimidated, and I always have been. Okay, don’t laugh, but there’s a boy in my class at college who terrifies me. There’s no reason why, he just does! I think we’ve spoken to each other twice before and only very briefly. He’s never done anything bad to me, he…
