  • #Nottsmeetsep14 – 20.09.2014

    This post has been a LOOONNNGGGG time coming.

    During September I had a wonderful opportunity to go to a local meetup. I feel like I’ve not been to one for ages!

    This one was run by Leah & Gemma both whom I have met before at previous events/meetups.  It was also great to see other girls that I’ve met before and get to speak to them at least a little bit during the day.

    The meetup was held at Sobar, an alcohol free bar and restaurant that also helps recovering addicts by giving them a place to work and get experience and help that they may not do otherwise.

    We were a few minutes late getting there but as we did they were prepared and were already bringing food out. I had the pulled pork pizza which was so yummy, it was a perfect size just for a mid day meal, not a huge pizza that you then don’t need food for the rest of the day. After food there was chance to chat to Amber who also joined us on the table and say hello to other girls that I’ve previously met at other meetups.

    Having paid for our food we headed upstairs to a private room that I presume they use for meetings with addicts we were sat around a table and given a Talk from Suzie from Xenca which was really interesting. She gave us a presentation on all the products and an in depth explanation of the company and then followed up with a tester of all of the Perfection makeup range and the supplements that help your well being from the inside out along with the skincare range. Afterwards we were all treated to the choice of makeup product from the brand, I picked the Mink eyeshadow.

    Once we’d had a play around with the products we had a raffle where the money raised was going towards Schools For Parents. I was super lucky enough to win three prizes! It was my very lucky day.

  • Pizza Party Tuesday Night – #..

    PeterPizzeria

    Let me just start by saying that my love of sour dough pizza stems from my trip to Boudin whilst in San Francisco.

    A couple of weeks ago I attended the #BloggerPeterParty hosted by the always lovely Annie at the newly opened Peters Pizzeria in Leicester.

    Peters Pizzeria opened its first restaurant in Loughborough which I have spotted before but have never got round to visiting (which I will be doing now).

    I have to tell you, Peters Pizzeria in Leicester is absolutely awesome from the second you walk in. The toilets are in individual sheds for goodness sake!

    I’m an absolute sucker for interiors of restaurants and I’m a massive fan of how cool the inside looks and fortunately most new restaurants are ticking my boxes and Peters Pizzeria is one of them.

    This meetup was a breath of fresh air, it was after work on a Tuesday and it felt like you were just meeting up with friends for a meal, except there were about 25+ of us there.

    It was lovely to see faces I recognised and to meet new people too. It was also really nice to just sit and talk to people from brands because they were sat as part of the meet up rather than purely there for brand purposes.

    Food wise we were treated to a selection of pizzas off the menu, I’m a picky eater so stuck with the margherita pizza which was ah-mazing! And as far as I could gather the others were pretty tasty too, not a bad word said so I think that’s a win. To make things even better we were also shown the delights of their ‘Peterella’ which is a sour dough pizza base smothered in nutella which I have to say is heavenly! who doesn’t love things covered in chocolate!

    I ended up having a really good evening and it was great to meet new people and some new brands and businesses.

    A massive thanks to Peters Pizzeria for letting us use their facilities and have a nosey around and also Annie for organising the event, girl did good!

  • Oh Hi There…

    2014-11-15 10(2)

    Long time no see! How have you been? Glad to see you here again.

    It’s been a while eh, and a lot has changed in the last year (almost) personally anyways.

    I’m back, maybe not regularly but I’m back, and I want to get my mojo back, this blog is something I’ve always loved and been proud of. I’ve just had to take some time to myself and get my life back on track. I’m still not quite there but lets just say I am a LOT happier than I was back in October.

    Over the next few posts you’ll get some past posts that never got posted, mainly event ones that I went to in 2014 but I want to share my experience of them and show my appreciation for the hard work that goes into organising events and meetups. You will also see posts from my travels from America that I went on almost a year ago! Time flies, it really does.

    I look forward to getting back into it and being more present on my little old blog. I’m also looking into having a re-design cause I feel like it’s time to clean up and start a fresh like I have done in my life.
