Celebrating Eid with Selfridges at the Trafford Centre!

I know i’ve been AWOL but I’ve been creating content for my other platforms etc. However your girl is back. I thought I’d share with you what I got up to at Selfridges to prepare for Eid.

I got invited down to the Trafford Centre to visit the Beauty Insiders at Selfridges & Co. The beauty insiders counter is a concession where you can book yourself a treatment with a beauty brand whether that’s make up or skincare and get a 1 to 1 session.

I chose to get my make-up done, the lovely Leah introduced me to the new Natasha Denona Pallete and can I just say what a beautiful pallete it is. I opted for an orange smokey eye, and I was obsessed with the look Leah created. The beauty insiders counter is mazing if you want that intimate 1 on 1 session with a beauty expert.

I then headed up to the food hall, where I picked up some food from Ping Pan Asian. I love trying new foods and the garlic chicken and rice I’d totally recommend. There are so many choices, as well as it being halal. You can check them out on Instagram at: @ping_panasian and on Twitter at: @PPanasian

I filmed a little vlog of my day preparing for Eid so if you want to see what I got up to do go give it a watch.

I hope you enjoyed this post.

Swap fast fashion for sustainable style | The Bee Thrive

Around 2 weeks ago I got invited down to The Whiskey Jar in the Northern Quater. This was to mark the start of Fashion Revolution week, and honour the six-year anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster in Bangladesh which killed 1,134 people in the country’s worst industrial disaster.

The Bee Thrive a Manchester-based ethical and sustainable fashion brand hosted the event, where you could swap your fast fashion tees for its sustainable organic T-shirts. The event was booming with passionate individuals about the fashion industry. I was enlightened by so much information, it’s something we don’t think about consciously and I really think we should.

It was insightful to listen to the founder of the Bee Thrive Gemma Gratton and how her business idea came about as well as understanding the idea that every little change we make to our purchases and our wardrobes were helping a lot more than we think.

The event was also showcasing other brands such as Fabric for freedom which are a sustainable fashion brand who had their collection available – we honestly fell in love with some of the pieces.

The Bee Thrive also did a cat walk with pieces available in their new collection and can I just say I was obsessed with the jumpsuit. The pieces in the collection are so versatile and will live forever in your wardrobe for sure. SO do check the Bee Thrive by clicking here.

We also heard other stories on people who changed their lifestyle by not using plastic, it was crazy to hear  how easy it is. For example, by not buying a water bottle from Sainsburys and just using a reusable water bottle.

Jake Shoes store launch party in Altrincham

A couple of weeks ago I was invited down to the new Jake Shoes store in Altrincham. As you know me I can’t turn anything down revolving shoes. Jake Shoes has stores in Stockport and Manchester Arndale and now Altrincham and this is just the start because I’m sure you’ll soon be seeing the store everywhere. It is located in the town centre near JD Sports (you can’t miss it).

Jake Shoes has a variety of different brands as well as shoes. Starting from Vans, Hunter to even Uggs and Timberland. It has shoes for all ages from kids, to adults and styles from boots to flats and walking shoes. The store has such a lovely aesthetic, from all the different colours and textures it looks so good together.

The event was such good fun there was an arcade machine which you could win a variety of prizes from – it was great! There was so many familiar faces, so it was nice to catch up with some local bloggers too. Also to get a feel for the store and look around the latest shoes – I mean heaven right? As well as their being snack and drinks what a fab way to spend an evening. Thank you to the team at Jake Shoes and also Alice for a great event.

*JD Sports Store Opening at Manchester Arndale!

  

If you’re a regular shopper around Manchester you’ll know that the JD sports store has been closed for a while and it re-opened this Saturday and the opening weekend has been spectacular. The store is located in the Manchester Arndale the store is now back and bigger than ever.

I went down on Saturday afternoon for the opening of the store and I mean if you were in the Arndale you couldn’t miss it. The store opening consisted of some of the best street dancers Kieran Lai, Shadow Seifiroth and Curtis Butler, who put on an amazing performance! There was also competitions going on to win tickets to some of the best shows and gigs as well as winning trainers for a year.

The store itself as I’ve mention has the largest variety. From womenswear it now has brands like Calvin Klein, Tommy Hilfiger in-store it has so many brands for kids and menswear like its unreal how much choice there is. Ofcourse the trainer section is my favourite, as usual JD are killing the game with the new releases from Nike with the vapourmax and the Nike air max 97s.

Do head down to see the latest releases this undisputed Christmas, as well as the new store I assure you, you won’t be disappointed!

Thank you JD for letting me head down to see the new store and see the hottest kicks and a fab event overall.

Getting creative with Reeves X Foundation Coffee House

  

Last Friday I was invited down to the Foundation Coffee House in Manchester. Reeves were hosting an arts and crafts event to showcase their rebrand of art products.

On entrance I was greeted by the lovely ladies from Reeves who introduced me to the new range and showed me illustrations by Elliot who was present at the event too! I’ve got to say he’s so talented! The postcards and flip books are SO imaginative!

Whilst we grabbed a coffee and some free pizza.. YES free pizza! I got to meet the lovely Asma & Steph, then we painted our plants and postcards and chatted about all things blogger as you do!

It was lovely to see so many people from the public also coming and getting creative. It’s just so good to wind down after a long week, and with painting it was so relaxing.

The new Reeves collection contains literally everything you’d need to create art, from brushes of all sizes and purposes. To acrylic and water colour paints of every colour. To then sketchpads and sketching pencils. You can check it all out here and grab what you need!

I hope you enjoyed reading this post! What’s your favourite way to wind down after a long week? Comment below.
