Happy New Year guys and gals! 2019 already, can you believe it?
I’m a little late on my reflection posts as I’ve had a lot on with work over the last couple of weeks, but I am here and ready to get them posted – starting with the most important one…Burgess’ Buff Blokes for 2018!
If you’re unfamiliar with this, it’s pretty easy to explain…
I put together a list of my top 25 fit fellas of the past year!
So last week I was lucky enough to be invited along to a VIP evening at intu Metrocentre and oh my goodness, it was amazing!
A number of North East bloggers and influencers gathered at Exhibition Square where we were greeted with a glass of fizz and some lovely food from Fattoush Lounge before hopping aboard the intu Metrocentre express and checking out some of the brand new store openings that have been happening lately.
It doesn’t seem to matter which city I go to, I nearly always find myself in Revolution. Delicious food, bloody lovely cocktails and always a great atmosphere- you can never go wrong!
That’s why I was so excited when I was invited along to a blogger event at the opening of their new bar in Durham. Based in the heart of the city on North Road, the bar is spread out over two floors. Downstairs you have the ground floor restaurant with comfy booths, a large bar and a dance floor to keep you going til the early hours of the morning. If you head upstairs, you’ll find their amazing heated rooftop terrace which overlooks Durham Castle, Cathedral and the river. It’s beautiful!
Just over a week ago, I was lucky enough to have been invited along to the launch of El Nido Latin Kitchen – the new pop-up at No28 in Newcastle.
The quirky bar, which resides just above the Grainger Market, have teamed up with Kaltur, a Spanish restaurant and supplier, to create the pop-up kitchen and I was very excited to tuck into some plates from the menu!
We were greeted with a glass of complimentary fizz, then made ourselves comfortable in a cosy area of the bar with the rest of the North East bloggers and social media influencers who had been invited along to enjoy the evening.
It’s no secret that PizzaStorm is one of my favourite places to grab food in the North East, so when they invited me along to sample some bits from their menu – I was well up for it!
Usually when I visit the restaurant I like to pick my own toppings and create my own pizza, but PizzaStorm have some new additions to their Signature Range, so this time I was looking forward to trying one of those.
A few weeks ago I was invited along to Y Salon in Newcastle for a very special and inspiring event.
The salon, which is located in Eldon Garden, teamed up with Kevin Murphy and CoppaFeel to help raise awareness and spread the word to get people to check their boobs and pecs regularly for any changes…because knowing your body could save your life.
