NEWCASTLE'S INTERNATIONAL CHRISTMAS MARKET

Tuesday, 5 December 2017


Every year as far as I can remember Newcastle have had a Christmas International Food Market around the town centre at Monument. From handmade goods, delicious foods and gorgeous jewellery and trinkets, the market is a perfect place to shop for a unique present. But mostly everyone goes for the food. And this year, some old favourites made an appearance as well as some foods I’ve never had before. This year I always see the market to and from work but never have a look. Unfortunately I was too busy scoffing my face with treats that I barely took any photos of the rest of the market. 

I'm pretty sure the normal Christmas market is on straight after this market as well. Correct me if I'm wrong. 

PHOTO DIARY #4 | CAFE DATES & WINTER ADVENTURES

Friday, 1 December 2017


Every week my friend Laura and I aim to do something together. To lift moods and basically just to hang out a lot more since our lives are full of work and other activities, it’s sometimes hard to have a social life. So whatever day we have free, we plan to do an activity etc and document what we’ve done to look back. Here are some photos of our outings from the past week. This post is a tad photo heavy.

DORKFACE ETSY SHOP*

Monday, 27 November 2017


So recently I made a purchase over at Jemma’s Etsy! After a while of ogling her work, I finally found my hubbys bank card and clicked buy. You may know Jemma as Dorkface. She has bright hair, paints alot and loves Eminem. (Hi Jemma!)  I wanted to support a small business and treated myself to a cute print for my office that I aim to decorate soon. Although I'm in the middle of painting my bathroom so that might take a while. However I will be buying frames for these pieces of artwork this week :D I really want to aim to support more artists now I can afford to buy things. And what better time to support and give then Christmas. Excuse my hideous nails in these photos.

EYEBROWS ON FLEEK WITH PRIMARK'S PALETTE

Friday, 17 November 2017


For £2.50 I was pleasantly surprised by Primark’s Eyebrow Palette. It’s always a bit of a hit or miss with their beauty section but I definitely think this is a hit for me. I’ve been using MUA’s brow palette for a few years now and decided that it was time to try another since I wasn’t a fan of the Lottie Eyebrow Pencil. When I saw this palette during a trip to Primark, I had to plop it into my basket.

FENWICK WINDOW; PADDINGTON BEAR

Tuesday, 14 November 2017


Now when you think of Christmas in Newcastle, Fenwick window comes to mind along with the obvious. Fenwick (I always call it Fenwicks, I add the S for no reason) have been doing these windows since I can remember. And some are memorable and some are less memorable. I thought since this year I work in town and go past the Fenwick window display I'd take some photos of this years display! If I'm not mistaken, I'm pretty sure this is the only Fenwick in the UK to put on such a display. So many of you will  have no idea what this means in Newcastle. It's been apart of Newcastle for over 45 years!
