L I F E | Old Fashioned Master Class with Glen Moray

It’s a family affair….

My mum drank whisky & green ginger .

My dad has his either neat or with a little water.

My brother drinks his with … anything !

Me … I like mine with coke.

Whisky has and always will be my favourite. I have recently been flirting with Gin but I always return to my old favourite.

Last week I was invited by MPR Communications to P.U.B.L.I.C in the heart of Sheffield to attend an ‘Old Fashioned’ masterclass in association with Glen Moray Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

L I F E – in a funk and a little catch-up

I’m in a bit of a funk … mojo less

I mean I’ve not even posted on Instagram for 4 days . Missing in my own mind !!

Thinking and looking back this happens every now and again so I’m not paying it too much attention. No pressure Tracey. I guess my mojo will return when it returns. I guess my brain is frazzled / knackered, it needs some time out… and a lie down on a beach somewhere!

In the meantime I just thought I’d pop on and say hello, give you a little bit of a life update and have a little natter.

So … you ok? Continue reading

S H E F F I E L D | Gin experience at Locksley Distilling

By my own admission I’ve always been a whisky kinda lady.

Then Mum got cancer…

We would have our girlie afternoons , sit and sip coffee together, chit-chat about everything and nothing. On occasion the coffee would be substituted by a large Gin and Tonic.

I didn’t really like Gin back then, I didn’t hate it either … I just didn’t dabble. It sounds daft but drinking it together made me feel even closer to her … like we were bonding over her favourite tipple. Continue reading

B E A U T Y | let’s take it off, let’s talk Cleansers

My mum was a [ding dong] Avon Lady.

As a young girl I would sit for hours playing with her fancy sample kit.

I’d slather thick cloppy creams all over my face and try the tiny lipsticks that ranged from pale pinks through to bronzes and deep reds with great excitement. I was in my element and I swear that this is where my love of all things beauty began… and over the years it’s just flourished.

Which brings us back to today…

After many, many years of blogging I’m now at the stage where brands send me products to trail . I feel extremely lucky and the excitement every time I receive a parcel in the post is as real as it was back when I was sat in mums bedroom playing with her kit . I guess I will always be gob-smacked. I’m a gob-smacked kinda girl ! Continue reading
