This week I turned 22, and before flying off to Budapest for a little break with my boyfriend, I celebrated my birthday with my family at Sweetharts in Blackhill, Consett.
I've been wearing this makeup for work, days out, and special occasions all season - I think the combination of deep colours and soft, imperfect blending makes it so versatile.
The weather is definitely starting to get a bit chillier, so, my outfits this week have been all about transitional dressing, bringing in some layers and autumnal colours.
I really loved how unique the place is as an alternative to your usual bars and restaurants in Newcastle. It's great as a meeting place before a night out, a date night, or an afternoon out with friends.
I've had a bit more time for reading over the summer and wanted to share some of my favourite reads.
September marks my blog's first birthday! So I thought I would celebrate by writing a blog post because I've been so rubbish at this lately. I'm going to talk about how I need to try harder but first I thought I would do a little life update.
In July I spent a week in Dorset with the boyfriend and my family. I absolutely loved the place; everywhere is gorgeous, meaning there's loads of Instagram opportunities, and there's so much to do.
I love going out to eat. Probably too much. And since this Monday signals the start of Newcastle's Restaurant Week it's a brilliant excuse to go and enjoy some of the amazing restaurants Newcastle has to offer.
I'm not usually one for fashion posts but there's been a few items I've loved wearing this summer that I really wanted to share.
A few weeks ago I donated blood for the first time. This was something I've been meaning to do for ages and I'm so happy and proud that I eventually did it.
