It feels like I haven’t done this in forever. Last weekend, Me and my little brother took a trip to Manchester Arndale  to discover the new Smiggle store. Smiggle is dedicated to creating original, fun and affordable stationery. The brands products are focused on bold colour, quirky graphics and good value.

Smiggle has opened a store in Manchester Arndale. The event consisted of us learning more about Smiggle as a brand as we hadn’t heard of them before. The lovely staff introduced us to what their new products were and we got to look around to what was in store. I loved the quirky erasers and the scented pencils.

We got an insight to the new camouflage range which will be launching soon. We did a treasure hunt to find the Australian land marks – which were hidden quite well. Then the most exciting part was we got entered into a raffle to win £200 worth of Smiggle stationery and guess what I WON! I was spoilt for choice,  there was so much stuff. We also got refreshments from Boost and cakes which were delishhh!

It was lovely meeting so many bloggers I hadn’t met before as well as there little kids.

We got a goody bag which contained lots of goodies such as the –

Aussie Scented Eraser Tub

Aussie Pals Pencil Case

I’ve included a image with all my favourite stationery from Smiggle, take a look let me know what you love from Smiggle? Comment below.

Last week I was invited down to Selfridges at the Trafford Centre for the Everybody’s Beauty Event. This was to celebrate the beauty of difference with an evening of festivities, pampering beauty experiences, complimentary drinks and special treats from brands we all love. As well as 15-minute beauty fixes across all counters.

As soon as I walked in it consisted of such a fun and filled atmosphere. I waked around in a circle stopping off at all of my favourite brands. I first stopped at Clarins where the lovely ladies showed me what was best to use on my skin type which was so helpful. I then stopped at Jo Malone where I got a complimentary hand massage. Then my favourite couple of stops were the beauty counters Urban Decay, MAC, Illamasqua and Charlotte Tilbury. I took a look at the Alice in wonderland looking through the glass pallete and honestly I couldn’t want anything more its such a pretty pallete.

The DJ was mixing some great tunes whilst the dancers just outside were performing a routine which was so beautiful (It made me wish I could dance). Drinks and mocktails were being offered and I had to grab myself one! Everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves as they were getting complimentary treatments and tips on tricks on any beauty they deemed suitable for themselves.

 I got introduced to TruBe at the event. TruBe is a personal training app, however it is tailored to what your concerns are. They were in store during the event offering guests of the event, 10 minute nutrition and fitness consultation. I went over and met the 2 lovely representatives who told me more on TruBe and what it consisted of. It’s similar to Uber however you select a time and place for your workout then a type of workout such as kickboxing or yoga. Your then able to select your trainer, and get fit! I mean its as simple as that! I will be doing another post on TruBe soon giving you more information so keep an eye out!
I enjoyed all the complimentary treatments, advice on beauty for my skin and a look into what is new in at SelfridgesSelfridges always have events and other amazing in-store activities so keep an eye out for the next ones!

I’ve been super excited about this post for quite a while. On Thursday me and Hemisha took a trip down to Manchester to get a first look at the new lush store for the VIP event, which I was kindly invited too. I totally couldn’t turn this down; it was a must to attend!

Lush have opened a brand new store which is bigger and better than their previous one. It also has items which you can only get in that store, with other new products and releases.

The interior is probably my favourite feature, it’s so inviting not just by the scent but by the colour components of each sections of the store, starting from bath bombs to then make-up, skincare, hair care and so much more. Something that I don’t think many or any stores have is the green house this is where all the plants are stored and you can go in for a consultation which is tailored specifically for you and your needs. Within your consultation Lush staff can apply products you may want to try before purchasing making your shopping trip nothing but successful!

We got to go round to each station and get more of a look into what some products contain and the benefits of them on our skin. This was really helpful for u to get an insight to what would suite us and our skin. There were also bath bomb demonstrations like they do normally which is always so fascinating!

Another new aspect to this store is that they have a party section where you can book and have fun and games! This again is another exciting exclusive to this store! Throughout the night we were served the cutest Lush cookies as well as brownies and loads of other good stuff! (we were totally spoilt!) My favourite new items had to be the make-up as the lipsticks and eye-shadows which can also be used as highlighters are so glittery,pigmented and long lasting its unreal!! Another new aspect they’ve introduced is tying your purchases into a little bag with colourful printed scarfs they’re all so pretty!!

The store is now open and ready for you to shop till you drop, it’s located in the Manchester Arndale!

Thank you to everyone at Lush for such a good evening at the VIP event and my lovely friend Hemisha for accompanying me.

Eat Pasta, Run Faster with Vapiano Manchester!

IMAG3386

As I promised I’d do another post for you with Vapiano Manchester, however this is slightly different to the previous one. Vapiano are introducing a diet plan, as they teamed up with Dr Sarah Shenker a Registered Dietitian and Nutritionist. This diet plan will enhance runners diets for the Great Manchester Run. Sarah states  ‘It’s important to balance your carbohydrate intake with plenty of protein. The delicious pasta dishes from Vapiano can be a big part of your fitness plan whether you’re a runner, cyclist, body builder or partake in any regular sport.

The Great Manchester Run is creeping up on us as its on Sunday 22nd May 2016. This is a good time period for runners to test the diet plan as training for a longer distance race like a half or full marathon, you will need to maximize your glycogen stores by eating plenty of carbohydrate foods 2-3 days before the big day. Vapiano is perfect for this as Pasta Pomodoro is said to top up carbohydrate (glycogen) stores. The meal eaten the night before is crucial in delivering the last top up of glycogen. Also, Rucola ravioli which glycogen stores will be depleted so carbohydrate from pasta is important to help muscles recover. There is plenty of whey protein from the ricotta which delivers special amino acids that are effective in helping to repair the muscles and prevent muscle soreness.

Vapiano is a great restaurant to go to, primarily as there is a variety of dishes to add to your carbohydrate load as this is essential. A variety of pasta dishes are available made fresh for you whilst you watch the magic happen!

Check out the full diet plan here.

Pick up your t-shirt at you local Vapiano too!

After snow sun and rain in one day I feel like I’ve been around the world. What a hectic day its been but I’m so glad it’s the weekend. Today I’ve got a post that I’ve never done but I’m so excited to share this with you guys.

About a fortnight ago me and my dad took a trip into Manchester around 12pm for lunch. Luckily we got invited by Vapiano which is located in the Corn Exchange, and it was totally an honour to attend. If you didn’t already know Vapiano is an Italian restaurant, for me I couldn’t have been happier as I live off pasta and pizza!

Pasta, pizzas, antipasti and salads can be ordered directly from the chefs at the individual stations in the middle of the Vapiano restaurant.  The chefs prepare all of the dishes to order in front of the guests and you can have the meal tailored exactly to your needs! On arrival you are given a Vapiano card where everything you eat or drink is added which is used to pay at the end of your meal.

The atmosphere of the restaurant was too loud and not even quiet it was perfect to catch up with whoever your meal was with it felt so open and relaxed which is always a bonus to enjoying your meal. The decor was one of my favourite aspects, as this was simple but the simplicity of it just added another sophisticated yet calm vibe!

Onto the food, for a starter we ordered brushetta served with olives [ciabatta bread, marinated tomatoes, garlic, basil and olive oil] because who doesn’t love it? Plus its so tasty to start the meal of with. Then for my main I couldn’t decide between pasta or pizza as I love the both as equally but in the end I went for the tonno pizza [tuna,red onions, tomato sauce and mozzarella]. This was such a lovely tasting pizza as I could taste the flavours compared to a normal pizza. Then finally for desert I decided to go for bacio [chocolate and hazelnut with biscuit base]. This was in the cutest little jar topped with a strawberry, I couldn’t get over how cute it looked I didn’t want to dive in! But when I did I wasn’t disappointed it was such a delicious desert. Not to also mention how good the pineapple juice is like seriously its like happiness in a bottle. I had no words.

I’m definitely taking my friends here soon! I love it!! The excitement of being able to choose where to sit on the laid back wooden stools or the comfy chairs in the corner its all such a good experience its like being on a journey and watching the friendly chefs make your food is so fascinating. I will be doing a post real soon on the #EatPastaRunFaster campaign so keep an eye out!

Last Saturday Manchester was lit up with the latest beauty treatments as there two day celebration of everything beauty! The event took place in the exchange court right outside next – if you were there over the weekend you couldn’t have missed it. The 2 day event consisted of complimentary treatments from a variety of different brands NYX, Benefit and Topshop beauty and so many more!

I had a complimentary treatment with both NYX and Benefit. Benefit focused on brows and NYX focused on the lips. This was so good to get an insight to what’s the latest beauty trend. Then they also had a selfie booth to capture your looks which was also super fun!

They also had the lovely Youtuber&Make-up artist Jamie Genevieve. She had created a couple of looks which she showed us how to do, whilst making us giggle with her awesome sense of humor! Honestly, she’s so talented and such a lovely lady! We were then able to ask Jamie any questions we wanted and got a selfie with her too!

Once I had my complimentary treatments done, I was greeted by the lovely staff and given a goody bag filled with awesome goodies and samples!
