Intu Metrocentre Blogger Event!

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.

An Evening at El Nido

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.

A Glimpse at PizzaStorm’s New Menu

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.

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!

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!
