Sunderland Restaurant week

Last night I was lucky enough to attend a preview of some of the restaurants participating in Sunderland's restaurant week. This is in partnership with Sunderland Experience (BID). Restaurant week is a good time to try out new restaurants that you may have not considered otherwise. As it's restaurant week those participating have really affordable offers on that vary between £5-£20. With over 50 restaurants taking part there really is something for everyone (even for fussy myself)
When does Sunderland restaurant week start? It starts 9th September for 1 week.
Benefits of restaurant week Promotes the local area Great chance for Sunderland restaurants to show what they have on offer A choice of 2-3 course meals for affordable prices To try out places you might have not even heard of before

Top 5 Summer Scents

Even though Summer is coming to an end (sadly) it's still not over yet. These are my top 5 summer perfume picks. When it comes to perfume for the summer I like very floral and fruit scents. I also like my perfume to last on the skin without fading after an hour.

The scent Features notes of raspberry, orange, jasmine and sweet vanilla
My opinion on this perfume Since getting this perfume I have worn it a lot and this does last for about 4-5 hours on the skin before it starts to fade. The smell…

Primark haul & try on

A few weeks ago I went shopping and ended up buying quite a lot from Primark. I only went in to have a look and I ended up with all of this. Primark can be very hit or miss when it comes to clothes. You either can't find nothing you like and buy nothing or end up finding a lot of things you like and buying a lot.
Primark's night range is my favourite at the moment. The main thing when it comes to night wear to me is comfort and I prefer less fitted night wear so that I can easily move about and not feel restricted. Whereas when it comes to clothes I am the total opposite. I prefer my clothes to be fitted as I find them the most flattering on me.
Clothes can look very different on compared to on the hanger so I decided to do a try on haul. For reference I am 5ft 3.
Shirt dress with belt I was unsure about this dress at first but I decided to try it on as it's ideal for uni. For uni I would wear this dress with black tights. This dress is nice just to throw on and not …
