The sassiest pink biker jacket you will ever see

A couple of weeks ago someone shared a link on Twitter to the dreamiest lilac biker jacket I’ve ever seen. In fact it was probably one of the only lilac biker jackets I’ve ever seen. I’ve never been brave enough to jump on the bold biker jacket bandwagon so I wasn’t serious about buying it. That was until I fell head-over-heels in love with the raspberry pink one. It looked gorgeous online but it’s one of those colours where you can’t be 100% sure what it’s like unless you see it in person. So when I went into Nottingham on…

Bodega, Derby: The press party

Bodega have been on my radar now for a while. I’d heard wonderful things about their restaurant in Leicester as a few of my friends had been and written about it. But the thing is, I don’t visit Leicester very often so I’ve always missed out. Until now! A few months ago (I think I was on my way to The Orange Tree) I noticed that Bodega was opening soon in Derby. There were some posters up in an empty restaurant at the bottom of Sadler Gate. Honestly at the time I thought to myself “I wonder if they’ll put on…

Fifteen of my favourite things

I recently read a post by one of my good friends and fave bloggers Emmie from Carpe Diem Emmie all about fifteen of her favourite things. She took inspiration from an article in a magazine so I thought I’d take a bit of inspiration from her and share fifteen of my favourite things. Takeaway treat My ultimate takeaway treat has to be Domino’s pizza. I usually order the House Special Roast Chicken because it is literally what pizza dreams are made of but I always order the stuffed crust. Pizza with a normal crust is obviously delicious, but a stuffed crust just takes…

Personalised tasty treats from Caketoppers

A few weeks ago the lovely Sam from Caketoppers got in touch with me. She asked whether I’d like to review her personalised cupcakes and, of course, I said yes.

intu Derby’s autumn/winter fashion event

A few weeks ago I received an invitation to the intu Derby autumn/winter fashion event. I’ve got to admit, I’d already had a sneak peek at what was to come! I’d seen some of the shows at the intu Victoria Centre in Nottingham the week before so I knew that they’d be fantastic. Rather than your typical catwalk which (let’s be honest) can be kinda boring, the models performed dance routines instead. The chorography was mostly the same but each performance had a theme which incorporated the music and the clothing. The models were showcasing clothing from stores in the centre…
