#EastMidsMeetUp: Goodie Bags & Raffle

#EastMidsMeetUp Matalan


Continuing on from the first instalment of my #EastMidsMeetUp posts where I spoke about the actual event and planning, today I'm going to be going into detail about the goodie bags and raffle prizes. I mentioned in my first post that I was in charge of getting brands involved, so my job basically was to sort out the goodie bags and to source raffle prizes. We managed to raise £200 to split between Bowel Cancer UK and Rainbow's Hospice, and I want to thank everyone who bought raffle tickets, and all the brands that donated products. Both are extremely worthy causes and this small amount can make a real difference to the people they help.

5 Minutes with... Livymegs

Saturday, 27 August 2016



For the last couple of months, I've had the pleasure of having two lovely ladies advertising on my sidebar. The first is Alexandra from the fab lifestyle blog Confetti Layers, but you'll actually find her in a post like this of her own very soon! The other lovely blogger, and the star of this post is the gorgeous Liv, who blogs at Livymegs. What sets Liv apart from the rest is the fact that she blogs a ton about university, sharing her experiences and tips, so if you're at uni right now, about to go or just considering it, you'll love her blog. If you've long graduated, don't fear, you'll still love her beauty and lifestyle posts.

Like the effortless model chic of the skincare world, La Roche Posay can always be relied upon to solve your skincare woes.

What To Buy at World Duty Free Jet Set Tour Event


A few weeks ago, I got an invitation in my inbox that I could not refuse. I was invited to the World Duty Free #JetSetTour event at Birmingham International airport. The team kindly sent a car to pick up myself and blogger chum Emmie (Carpe Diem Emmie), and after a quick detour because someone forgot her passport (spoiler, it wasn't me), we were on our way to the airport. The idea was to pretend we were going on holiday, slightly gutting when you're not actually jetting off somewhere hot. It was all too tempting to sneak on a plane to the Maldives/Santorini/other equally as fancy holiday destination...
