I recently made the trip to The Grand Hotel in York with my family for a staycation. This hotel is the ideal place for families with children who like to explore the city whilst staying in the only five star hotel in York! The Grand Hotel is conveniently located on station rise just a few minutes walk from the main attractions. When we arrived at the hotel we were greeted by a doorman and all our luggage was collected and taken to our room. The staff in the hotel couldn’t do enough for us and nothing seemed too much trouble.
I recently welcomed the arrival of my little boy Cooper and after having a baby first time round I struggled with post pregnancy clothes. I remember thinking what will my body look like after I have given birth? Will I fit into my clothes when my bump goes down? How will I breastfeed in public? When I discovered Happy Mama Boutique it was a relief! They sell inexpensive clothes for both during pregnancy and post pregnancy which helped me feel comfortable in what I was wearing. There are many maternity fashion brands out there but many are super expensive or just not stylish!
Warrington fashion fans will now be able to enjoy a more exclusive shopping experience with the launch of Golden Square’s brand-new ‘Thursday Evening Exclusive Event’. I went along to the event last month to see what it was all about, hosted by fashion stylist Lydia Louisa and make-up artist Nita XXX. There was a chance to meet with these industry experts and discuss the hottest seasonal looks, as well as having your makeup done. If you haven’t visited golden square shopping centre before it is located in Warrington, Cheshire and has a fantastic array of shops from high street favourites including Topshop, H&M and the nations favourite place for a bargain, Primark! This week the centre announced a brand new Lush store which I’m sure you’ll know I love from my previous posts.
What a week it has been…I’ve finally moved into my dream home and it has been totally worth the wait. I don’t care what anyone says about moving house, it is very stressful! There are so many things to think about and so much unpacking to do. I am not quite sure how I fit everything at my parents house as I seemed to have filled my new home with my rather large wardrobe, not forgetting all my makeup, skincare, perfume and plenty of magazines. There is something satisfying about keeping hold of each precious issue of Vogue..anyway that’s for another blog post! I don’t do outfit posts very often so this time I decided to ask my very creative friend Gaby to assist with photography whilst I paraded around Manchester in what could only be described as cold and blustery…nothing unusual for Manchester! This first look is my absolute favourite, an embroidered black lace midi dress perfect for a special occasion. Every girl needs a black dress in her wardrobe and this one is the perfect addition. You can buy this dress from the Lipsy website here.
