September Shopping Treats!

Summer has been absolutely wonderful this year and I love the sun, but autumn is my favourite season…and it’s fast approaching!

I’ve been curled up at night keeping warm re-watching Gossip Girl since I returned from my holiday last week, and it’s inspired me to dress better. To channel my inner Blair and Serena, learn to accessorise, and to be braver with my styling. Plus, what better way to see in the new season than to change up your wardrobe, right?

Barbie x Missguided

I don’t know about you, but Barbie pretty much defined my childhood. I would spend hours and hours locked away in my room, dressing the dolls, making up stories, watching Barbie videos (remember Barbie and the Rockers?) and I absolutely lived for it! It was nearly every girls dream to be just like her.

It was just by chance, when I was shopping in Selfridges in Birmingham the other day, that I stumbled across the Missguided section…and their Barbie collection. As soon as I saw it, I was in absolute awe.

NEW TUNES: NORTH EAST EDITION

As a music lover, I feel very lucky to be from the North East. The scene here is thriving, and has gone from strength to strength over the years. There’s so much talent on my doorstep… it’s inspiring.

I’ve been lucky enough to be involved with it all as a radio presenter, band manager and promoter. Through my work over the years, I’ve been introduced to so many incredibly talented bands and artists, and I’m constantly in awe of what I hear week in, week out.

I’ve had a few songs stuck in my head this past week and they’re all from North East artists, so I thought I’d put together a little post of my five favourite songs at the moment, and hopefully you dig them too!
