Lucky Dice

Trying to think of a Christmas Party Venue? Why not consider the bright lights and exciting environment of a Casino?

I've always wanted to learn how to play poker and at Grosvenor Casinos you can do just that. The pictures above are of the Grosvenor Casino in Didsbury which is just a short distance away from my flat and I was so impressed it's gorgeous!

You can learn the tips and tricks of all different games, whilst drinking the night away with your pals - it's lots of fun and a bit different than your usual lame turkey dinner!!

Why not head down and give it a try? :)

Lola's Cupcakes

Yummmyyyyy, I could JUST eat one of these bad boys right now!

Lola's Cupcakes has made it's way to Manchester and they have their very own cutesy cart at the Trafford Centre! I genuinely think they could be the BEST cupcakes I have ever eaten so if you are heading to the Trafford Centre then be sure to stop by!

They even do vegan cupcakes and gluten free :)

Charlotte's Trinkets, Treats & Treasures
Be. Still. My. Beating. Heart.

Oh Charlotte. You have done it again. On Tuesday I had the most wonderful day and met my makeup mogul idol Charlotte Tilbury at the Trafford Centre!

Charlotte talked us through this years gifting options and I genuinely would be so happy to receive any of them. They are stunning. Prices start at £29 and go all the way up to £220, but each gift set is thoughtfully curated and beautifully wrapped which makes the gift of makeup a reality!

Charlotte is so refreshingly real and honest that spending time with her is just such a great experience. It was one of those moments where I feel pretty damn proud about where my corner of the internet has got me. Charlotte is SO right when she says that makeup benefits both the wearer and those they encounter as the person wearing it often feels so much more confident and I have to agree. I adore makeup and after Tuesday I think I actually love it even more!!!

Tanya Bardo Jewellery Launch
On Tuesday evening I headed to Hale to check out Cheshire Housewife Tanya Bardsley's Jewellery Collection; Dreams to Reality.

Hosted by Ledigo PR and held at The Garden, guests mingled, were pampered and treated to the musical delights of Sam Burrows.

I absolutely love the concept of the jewellery line. As you know, I am a big fan of to do lists, objective setting and having goals. With each piece there is a cute little accompaniment and the idea is that you write down your goals/aspirations etc and then the jewellery is a visual reminder every day.. now, for me this could be perfect come January when I do my annual, let's get gymming routine! They would make such cute and thoughtful presents for Christmas so be sure to check them out.

I was DROOLING over the long chain rose gold angel wings necklace but all of the collection is really pretty. Prices range from £39-£99 and they are plated sterling silver :)

Thank you both to Tanya and Ledigo PR for a really lovely Tuesday night!!!
