Fenwick Warehouse Sale - October 2014

Fenwick is hosting a warehouse sale this weekend, offering up to 70% off furniture, televisions, electrical, linens, cookware and prams. I attended the sale a few years ago after buying my first house and managed to pick up various of pieces of furniture at a fraction of the usual cost.

For those who haven't been before, the Fenwick Warehouse Sale address is:

Mylord Crescent
Camperdown Trading Estate (located close to Killingworth)
NE12 5SP

The warehouse is open from 8am to 4pm this Saturday (11th October). From experience I'd recommend arriving early as there was a lot already sold when we got there at 11am.

Chanel Eyebrow Kit Review - Beauty Blog

In preparation for my wedding in July, I decided to buy a full new set of make-up for use on the day. One of the key products I needed was an eyebrow pencil as, having tried many different brands and options, I still hadn't found a product I was completely happy with.

After several recommendations I decided to purchase Chanel's eyebrow kit, Le Sourcil De Chanel. This was a deviation from my standard eyebrow pencil, as the kit comes with three powders that can be blended to achieve the perfect colour and thickness depending on individual preferences.

The Chanel eyebrow kit includes a set of (very good) tweezers, a brush to tidy the brows and a brush to properly apply the product.

I was slightly concerned that the product may not be ideal for day-to-day use due to the application process, however I've since found it takes no longer than a standard pencil. Additionally, it allows the opportunity to change the look of your brows depending on the look you're trying to achieve.

One of the other key benefits of the Chanel eyebrow kit is that it literally lasts all day due to the highly concentrated mineral pigments within the powder - that is definitely a bonus.

The Le Sourcil De Chanel kit cost me £43 however based on the amount of product required per application I can imagine it will be a long time before I need to replace this!

Chanel Boots - Winter Fashion - Fashion Blog Newcastle

I'm always complaining that I don't have any comfortable, high-heeled shoes, so when I came across these Chanel Boots in Paris my husband said he'd treat me to them for my birthday.

My birthday is today so I haven't yet been allowed to wear them yet, but based on the softness of the leather I think they could easily become my favourite pair of boots. I think they'll look great with some skinny jeans and a chunky knit jumper or some tights and nice dress.

I had a bit of a shopping spree when I was in Paris so will share some other pictures of the items I bought soon as they are pretty much all for the autumn and winter seasons, which will undoubtedly soon be upon us!

Cheryl Cole X Factor Dress Manchester 2014 Auditions - Jay Ahr

I was in Paris recently and made a trip into a store called Jay Ahr. I'd never heard of the designer before but they had some amazing dresses in stock, one of which I recognised as a design Cheryl Cole (or Fernandez-Virsini following her recent marriage) had worn at the X Factor 2014 Manchester auditions.

For those looking for an unusual dress I'd definitely consider giving Jay Ahr a look, although be prepared to spend some money as most were priced at around €900.

A few of my favourite designs are featured below and you can view the full collection at I must admit I was very tempted as I have quite a few events coming up, but on this occasion I (just) managed to refrain!

A Tribute To My Grandpa

It's not normally my style to write sentimental or heart-felt posts on my blog but today I'm making an exception so I apologise in advance. I promise I'll keep this short!

My family received some very sad news last week. My grandpa had passed away suddenly and rather unexpectedly. At the age of 85 he'd lived a long and happy life, however it still came as a huge shock to all of our family and friends.

In July this year I got married and travelled for three weeks and unfortunately I did not get a chance to see him before he passed away. The one thing I can be thankful for is that he came and shared the most important day of my life with my husband, family, friends and I, and for that I couldn't be more thankful.

His funeral is tomorrow and I wanted to share one of my favourite pictures from our wedding day. This was outtake number five as he managed to look everywhere but the camera when they were being taken. Even in his last photographs he managed to make everyone laugh.

RIP William Keith Stephenson. X x
