Back With a Couple of Guest Posts

I’m back!

Didja miss me? After 2 weeks away I certainly have missed blogging! Unfortunately the break wasn’t quite as relaxing as I had intended, as it unfortunately turned into 2 weeks of hard core, full time, flat hunting, instead of the sea side break I had been planning. The good news is, though, that fingers crossed it seems we have finally found a flat! And it even has a box room for me to use as a wardrobe! Hurrah! (Not sure whether the boyf has yet realised that my shoes are probably still going to have to live in our bedroom thought as I think the box room may be a little on the small side to contain them!) I’m so excited about getting moved in, getting a proper set up for outfit posts, and, of course, finally having a full length mirror outside of my studio! Hurrah again!

So, to ease us back in, I wanted to link to a couple of blogs that I did guest posts for on colour and style that appeared whilst I was away.

Merry Hill Spring/Summer Fashion Fete and a £50 Outfit Challenge

Last Saturday and Sunday the Westfield Merry Hill shopping centre held a celebration of Spring / Summer fashion in the form of a Fashion Fete!

Stores from the centre had set themselves up with a selection of their wares on pretty stands, lined with bunting, and the centre’s event area had become a green field for the weekend! I had a wander around the fete and found many a pretty thing, and more importantly some bargains as many of the stands were publicising special sale rates and discounts for the weekend. [Read more…]

Selfridges Blogger Evening Part 2 – The Pampering

After driving us well and truly crazy by showing us an array of lust-worthy accessories, Selfridges and the Bullring¬†decided to give us a serious pampering. I often joke that you can tell that you’re at a fashion event because there’s loads of booze, and very little food! This was definitely not the case. We were treated to an Italian feast at pizza restaurant Rossopomodoro which can be found on the bottom floor of Selfridges. I was yet to try this relatively new eatery, so was pretty excited (I get pretty excited about food generally). Pizza after pizza was bought out, and they were exactly as I remember eating them in Italy – fresh thin crust, real tomato base, cured meats, roasted vegetables, gorgeous stringy mozzerella. Oh my. This was all accompanied by bruschetta, olives, and other lovely nibbles. All the time our glasses were being topped up with fresh Prosecco (or iced water for the drivers!). There was so much most of us ended up taking home a doggy bag for the lucky people waiting for us at home. (Ok, I’ll admit it, I did actually make the boyfriend share it with me.) [Read more…]

Harvey Nichols Birmingham 10th Birthday Party

Well, how excited was I to get a tweet from Harvey Nichols Birmingham inviting me to their 10th Birthday Party? Very excited seems like a bit of an understatement! (Followed by, oh my god, has it been 10 years? Really?) As it was Harvey Nicks, I was expecting glamour. I wasn’t to be disappointed.

I went along with my brum blogging ladies (and one of their men!) and have to say I had the most fabulous night. A big shout out to the blogging girls, they are such an enormous laugh, weren’t afraid to get silly with the dressing up box, and picked me up when I managed to have a classic clumsy Emily moment falling out of the Mulberry photobooth. Yes, I did that. Luckily when it was still quite quiet. Ahem. [Read more…]
