Here are a few things I left with, which you might already have seen if you follow me on Instagram:
Ever wondered what my flat is like? I think that flat or room tour type posts are among my favourite things to see from bloggers, probably because I’m too nosey for my own good. After receiving a fabulous white resin stag head* from Out There Interiors (pictured above and below), I figured it was about time I did one of my own. Out There Interiors stock a large range of quirky furniture and home accessories on their website, perfect for brightening up your bedroom, student halls or your own flat or house.
Last night Vogue brought its famous Fashion’s Night Out to my city – how exciting! From Selfridges to Spinningfields to the Arndale, a variety of shops, brands and boutiques held special events into the evening, celebrating everything fashion.
I didn’t quite know what to expect from FNO as I had never ventured down to the one in London, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was super busy almost everywhere as was to be expected, but there were plenty of fab things to see and do which were worth braving the crowds for.
I started off at BooHoo‘s fashion bus, which they had stationed just off Market Street. BooHoo had their sparkling upcoming Boutique collection on show (which will be available for general purchase at the end of this month), as well as make-overs, cute pink BooHoo cars and a cool Instagram activity.
Harvey Nichols was hot on Selfridges’ heels as usual, with masses of fun things to see and do. Pic n Mix, Pin The Pony on Karl, exciting talks from a variety of influential people in the world of fashion (I caught a bit of Sophia Webster’s interview, she’s so adorable!), and some more famous faces including Proudlock and Jamie from Made In Chelsea. Despite feeling sort of bad for them both being mobbed by fans whenever they surfaced from backstage, I couldn’t resist a selfie with Proudlock! :’)
I also ate a cute tiny hotdog…
