Angry Birds Adventure Golf at intu Metrocentre

The first ever Angry Birds Adventure Golf course has opened at intu Metrocentre and Adam and I were so excited to be invited along for a game earlier this month, just after we’d visited the Arctic Experience. We both absolutely love mini/crazy golf and we’re both pretty competitive- there have been many times in our relationship already where we’ve fallen out playing games. Ok, I say ‘we’ but what I mean is that I’ve taken the huff because I’m a bad loser – oops!

Forget Diamonds, Thorntons Pearls Are A Girls Best Friend!

They say diamonds are a girls best friend but you know what I love? Pearls!

Don’t get me wrong, if you want to buy me diamonds I’m absolutely fine with that (wink, wink) but I’ve always been drawn to pearls. I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that I’m a June baby and they’re one of our birthstones! I got a beautiful pearl ring for my 21st birthday and it’s nearly always on my finger.

Inflata Nation Launch!

I don’t know about you but when I was a kid I absolutely LOVED soft play areas and ball parks. I remember when I was a little too old to play in them, I’d still go along with my younger cousins and pretend I was ‘looking after them’ in order to go in and have a turn myself!

When I got the email inviting me along to the VIP launch of Inflata Nation in North Shields my eyes lit up. An indoor inflatable theme park for children AND adults?! Count me in!

Veganuary with Wagamama, Intu Metrocentre

Ok, so first and foremost I’ve got to admit…I’m not a vegan.

In fact before this event, I wasn’t even that clued up on the ins and outs of veganism- all I knew was that I was interested in finding out more and broadening my horizons.

So before I carry on, let’s start with a brief explanation in case you’re not sure either.

Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose  – The Vegan Society

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.

Revolution Durham Event!

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!

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.
