Riverdale ‘Hot Dads’ Appreciation Post

With the return of Riverdale this week *cue screaming* it felt right to do a post about it for the blog – it’s one of my favourite tv shows! The cast is amazing, the storyline has more twists and turns than a rollercoaster and let’s not forget…THE HEARTTHROBS.

We talk about the younger lads of the show a lot. Jughead is mysterious and sexy, Kevin has a gorgeous face, Reggie is a beefcake and…do I even need to say anything about Archie?

Life Goals Workshop With GiffGaff Gameplan!

You know what we don’t talk about enough? Money.

I personally find it a tough subject to talk about. I’ve ALWAYS been bad with my money! I’ve never really been good at saving, I’m terrible at impulse buying, and as a freelancer it can be a worry when the next wage is coming.

I use money as a way to make me feel better, buying myself a new record or treating myself to a trip away when I’m feeling down, however it’s only recently that I realised – money is a part of why I feel down in the first place. It’s one of the biggest triggers of my anxiety.

Recently I was invited along to the giffgaff gameplan life goals workshop at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead, and I jumped at the chance. If there’s one thing I need, it’s tips on how to get my finances in order!

Photography Masterclass with Viking Office Supplies

If there’s one thing that I’m not necessarily confident about when it comes to my blogging, it’s my photography.

At the moment I use my iPhone as a camera at events, and I always worry that my photos might not be good enough to post. Luckily I was invited along to the Viking Photography Masterclass at The Botanist, Newcastle, and was able to pick up some handy tips in order to improve my skills!

A Stay at Hotel Indigo, Durham

Set in the former university offices at Old Shire Hall, Hotel Indigo Durham has recently opened following a £15 million transformation. I was lucky enough to be invited along to check out the hotel, and was overwhelmed by just how wonderful it is!

The stunning red brick building is ideally situated on Old Elvet, which makes it the perfect base to explore the city centre. It is also the home to Tinderbox Espresso Bar, Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar and Grill and the Rotunda Bar – which I’ll get onto later.
