On Thursday I was lucky enough to be invited to Chop Bloc in Chelmsford, Essex to sample some of their menu and learn all about their love of meat! I have never been a huge meat fan, there was even one point (maybe two) where i went vegetarian, purely because I’m proper fussy when it comes to meat.  Needless to say, it didnt last long. My love of bacon and steak got the better of me!  Back to Thursday night, I arrived early and met the lovely Hannah (@hannatalks) beforehand for a quick coffee and catch up before taking our hungry tummies over to Chop Bloc.  We met Steve and Dave who are the owners and were hosting the evening. Both have a history in the meat business, and their family have been working with people in the industry for many years, so they have brilliant connections. This means that Steve and… View Post

A couple of weeks ago, I was lucky enough to be invited to the Lee Stafford Hair & Beauty salon in Chelmsford by the lovely Emma who had arranged a bloggers event. I arrived at the same time as blogging lovelies Charlotte and Hannah and were immediately welcomed by the lovely staff on the front desk who handed us appointment cards and guided us upstairs to the main event room. Emma welcomed us in and offered us a glass of wine (sadly, I was driving boo!). We then had the opportunity to be shown around the spa areas of the academy. The building itself is like a complete maze, lots of corridors with rooms coming off them for a whole variety of different treatments. There is a lovely spa area with whirlpools and relaxation rooms which the girls and I said we would definitely return to check out soon! After… View Post

Last week I was invited along to Lush Chelmsford for their Halloween and Christmas new product launch. After having Snow Fairy withdrawals for the last 10 months I was especially looking forward to this event! Off I went, armed with a Pumpkin spiced Latte (standard). Wendy and the team talked us through all of the new and returning products and there are A LOT! Like..I’m going to have to find another income to afford all the newness and amazing smelling magical bath treats New for Halloween is this cute bat Shower Jelly called ‘NightWing’ along with the returning ‘Sparkly Pumpkin’ bubble bar and the ‘Lord of Misrule’ bath bomb (my fave!).

This… View Post

On Friday I was lucky enough to be invited to an event at the Lush store in Chelmsford. Beings it was my first event, I was a little nervous but super excited. I was lucky that I was greeted by the lovely Verity of Gingerdollyxo and also met up with Charlotte (withlovelottie) and Hanna (Hannatalks) who were all super nice and made me feel at ease!  When we arrived, we were greeted with coloured candy floss and a selection of green teas    We were then briefed on what the evening would entail, this included experiencing some mini treatments and making our own face mask. I started at the sound station, where we could listen to some of the music they play during treatments, the music was so relaxing and instantly got us in the mood for some treatments!     Next we moved to the facial area, where Charlotte experienced… View Post
