LIFE | Cosy Nights in with Home Bargains

As the winter months draw in [ can you believe its November already ] it’s dark by 4pm and it is cold enough to freeze your brass knockers off a cosy night in at home is always a good call preferably in front of a roaring log fire with a Christmas movie playing and your loved ones close by. I love summer but there something warm and comforting about Winter. Its cold outside but baby its warm inside…

Ideally I love nothing better than getting in from work; climbing into a hot, steamy bubble bath, where I let the weight of the world dissolve away as I soak . When suitably relaxed I dry myself off, change into a fluffy pair of pj’s and settle down for a relaxing evening.

Luckily Home Bargains have everything you need to make this a reality – the ingredients for a perfect cosy night in.

Joe Browns Autumn / Winter 2016 Preview

Last night myself and Liz where reunited (and it felt so good) for the first time in a long, long while.

We had been invited and  made our way up-to Leeds to attend the Joe Browns Autumn / Winter Collection Preview 2016

I’m always a-bit nervous whenever I attend events / meet new people.

Liz …she was cool as a cucumber armed with her camera and keen to get taking some piccies!

I tend to ramble like a jibbering idiot and get a rash. It didn’t help that my BF told me I looked like a panda JUST as I was leaving the house . Too much Touche Eclat and a heavy hand with the old bronzer!! #makeupfail

I’ll not even mention my ‘DIY’ fringe …  (what a wonderful picture I’m painting)

I needn’t have been nervous as  Emily (PR & Social Media Manager) gave  both myself and Liz the warmest  welcome and made us feel at ease straight away. Plus the very first person we bumped into was Kelly ‘The Big Fashionista’ who I’ve never met before but follow on twitter and instagram. She is as friendly and bubbly a personality in reality as I had expected.

We were led upstairs, handed a glass of Prosecco each and told to make ourselves at home. To take a good look around, have a feel, take pics and try on any of the new Autumn / Winter 2016 collection.

We were in our element…

So Lets introduce you the Autumn / Winter Collection which will be available to purchase from August 10th … Continue reading
