THE ALCHEMIST – NEWCASTLE

I’ve heard a lot about The Alchemist, mostly from friends in Manchester and Leeds, so was thrilled when I first heard that they’d be opening one in Newcastle! Taking up residence in the swanky new Grey’s Quarter of Intu Eldon Square, the bar has certainly had a lot of buzz leading up to it’s opening.

I was lucky enough to be invited along to the media launch on Tuesday (21st March) with my work colleagues to witness the magic first hand, and boy was it exciting!

The Alchemist bills itself as a ‘celebration of the unconventional, dark and controversial’, which is certainly represented first and foremost by it’s interior. Dim lighting, gothic artwork, dark wood and warm copper tones, the bar is incredibly magical and captivating. Before drinks are even added into the equation, the place is already an Instagrammers dream!

SOUNDS OF… JANUARY

So each month I like to put together a playlist of 20 songs that I’ve been listening to, whether they’re brand new, or older tunes I’ve been revisiting, and here’s my first playlist of 2017!

Enjoy! x

In the final few days of December, I decided that moving into the new year I’d try and focus on the positives, and get rid of any negativity in my life. I also thought about a lot of things I’d like to do, and that is how I ended up creating a bucket list for 2017.

THE GODS OF THE GOLDEN GLOBES

I absolutely love awards season 1- because I’m a huge film fan, and 2- because it’s always an absolute swoon fest!

I stayed up all night scrolling through Twitter, watching live video streams from the red carpet and drooling over actors as they posed for photos and collected awards.

Here are some photos of my fave lads from the Golden Globes and I tell you now, you might want to be sitting down for this…
