Happy chocolate milkshake day! I hope you don’t mind but I’m beginning the celebrations a tad early. It’s not actually chocolate milkshake day until Monday. But I thought I would get into the spirit of things by sharing with you my top ten chocolate milkshakes. I haven’t always been a big milkshake lover. In fact, my love for milkshakes only blossomed when I hit my teens which (despite how I feel) wasn’t that long ago. Some of my top milkshakes can be found all over the UK so don’t be upset if you don’t live in the East Midlands like…

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! One from Lush, and the other from Matalan. I briefly mentioned a couple of my favourite treats from the goody bags and linked to a couple of brands. However it was all too brief, so I thought why not write a whole post about them?!

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.

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…

A few months ago I wrote about how I don’t like Krispy Kreme doughnuts. It’s been one of my most popular posts so far and I’ve received lots of lovely comments suggesting that I give Krispy Kreme another shot. I never wrote the post in the hope that people would convince me to give them another try. However, in the end, that’s how it turned out so I thought it would be wrong for me not to. Most people recommended that I try an original glazed doughnut rather than one of the fancy ones with toppings and fillings. The glazed Krispy…

So today I went to my first ever blogger meet up. It was the #DerbyBloggersBrunch organised by the lovely Monet from Munching With Monet. It took place at The Cosy Club in Derby, one of the latest exciting new restaurants to open up in the city centre. I’d never been before but I’d heard and read great things about it so I couldn’t wait to try it for myself, as well as meet a great bunch of local bloggers. I got to the meet a little early because I really didn’t want to be the last one there, I don’t know…
