So this post is a bit late to the mark as I actually had my redesign about 2 months ago now but I wanted to share my experience with you all and basically just tell you how I've been getting on with everything so far!

#HBAlPorto - Personal Planner

#HBAlPorto - Personal Planner

In the amazing Hull Bloggers goodie bags we were lucky enough to receive a very generous gift voucher from the people at Personal Planner. I was so excited to get ordering as I am a crazy lady for lists and I love stationary!

When it comes to diaries and planners I am always a bit sceptical of spending a lot of money as, most of the time, the ones available in shops aren't 100% what I'm looking for. There is always something I would like to change about them if I had the chance! With Personal Planner, this is not the case and this is pretty much how the company was founded! I will insert the beginnings of the Personal Planner Story but you can read the whole thing over on the 'about us' tab on their website!

Homemade Face Mask - Mud Pack Day

Homemade Face Mask - Mud Pack Day

Today I have a little bit of a different post for you all as it is essentially a DIY post! Wednesday 30th September marks National Mud Pack Day which is a great excuse to get creative, make your own face mask and get relaxing! 

Face masks (especially homemade) are a great way to relax in the comfort of your own home and have fun at the same time. You can even rally a few of your friends/family round and make a pamper night of it! As winter is coming, I thought I would make a soothing and moisturising face pack which would bring the glow back to the skin during the colder weather.

Now if you have been reading my blog for a while you will know from my anxiety and my de-stress/wind down posts that I have my bad days and I'm not always 100% cheery nor motivated. Now I'm sure I'm not alone in this and along the way I have figured out a few tips and tricks to try and get myself back on track and re-motivate myself.

So this post is going to be a bit of a scary one to publish, I can tell already but I thought this was going to be a good one to do. At the #HBAlPorto event (which I know, I have mentioned a billion times already) I was lucky enough to win the Limited Edition Pixie Lott Magnitone Lucid in Hot Pink and I was ecstatic! I have wanted one of these face brush type things for quite a while now as I struggle quite a lot with my skin so this was the perfect prize for me!

5 Things I Wish I'd Done 5 Years Ago

5 Things I Wish I'd Done 5 Years Ago
Wednesday, 16 September 2015

So roughly about 5 years ago I had just finished school, started college and gotten my first job. Now I'm still only just coming up to the grand old age of 21 but there are a billion things I wish I had starting doing then instead of only just realising now. I'm sure everyone can relate to at least a couple of these but I can't help but thinking what if I had have done these things and hope that someone takes the advice I wish I had 5 years ago!

As you should know by now, from the many #HBAlPorto posts I have swamped you all with, I recently attended a blogger meet up and came out with some amazing goodie bags! In these bags were amazing items from tonnes of different brands - there was everything from fashion to food! Included in our lovely goodie bags was a piece from John Greed Jewellery. I was so surprised!

So this post was originally going to be a YouTube video but I'm really struggling to be able to film at the moment with it being school holidays - the house is so noisy! I also would very much like to get these empty bottles out of my way so I thought it would make a nice blog post instead! I also have quite a few #HBAlPorto posts planned so I thought this may be a nice way to break them up a little for those of you're not interested in those.

#HBAlPorto - Rock On Ruby

#HBAlPorto - Rock On Ruby

Now as you may have read in this post I recently was lucky enough to attend a blogging event in Hull. Prior to this event we were all kindly contacted by Holly from Rock On Ruby and she told us that we could order any item on the site at a exclusive discount and we would receive our chosen product(s) at the event.

After much consideration I finally decided on a personalised makeup bag as I felt this would last me a really long time and could technically be used for a number of things! I finally decided on the black, medium sized makeup bag (£14) with the slogan 'Everything you want is on the other side of fear' (If you have read this post, you will know how much that quote means to me) and I could not be happier with the finished product!

Hull Bloggers - Al Porto

Hull Bloggers - Al Porto
Tuesday, 1 September 2015
Read post
As you may or may not have heard/ seen quite a few of us raving about, there was an event on, on Sunday 30th August for a group of Hull Bloggers at Al Porto, Hull. This was an amazing event organised and held by three lovely bloggers Alex, Jenny & Kat and all their hard work really paid off! I would just like to take this opportunity to say a huge THANK YOU to those 3 ladies and also to Al Porto themselves as well as all the brands involved in our day. Prior to the event I hadn't met a single person but everyone made me feel so welcome!

So our day started with cocktails, introductions and chats/demonstrations with a few brands that where there. The brands present where Lush, Viridian & Weleda and we were all able to have a chat about the brands and the products they have on offer. While all this was going on, the lovely staff at Al Porto were circulating with some delicious food! As the day went on there were more introductions, more food and a raffle!

We were all lucky enough to receive not one, not two, but THREE(!!!) incredible goodie bags from the organisers with some awesome brands inside as well as another 3 goodie bags from the brands that were there on the day! The huge raffle included yet more amazing products so all in all I came out with 7 jam packed bags full of fantastic treats! Not only was that really nice for us but all the money we raised from the raffle (which was over £200) went to The Eve Appeal who help fight gynaecological cancers!

Now I just know this is going to be the first of many #HBAlPorto posts as there is so many amazing brands and products I would love to write about so I thought I would kick it all off with some pictures from the day and also tell you exactly which of us bloggers attended so you can go check them and their Al Porto posts out too! It's going to get quite photo heavy but I hope you enjoy. <3
