Sad sad news – Attica in Newcastle has decided to close up shop after 31 years. It’s been popular with vintage lovers, celebrities and national press across the years and is one of Newcastle’s best hidden shops. I’ve also mentioned it before on Grazia (article here)

Nestled on High Bridge Street, it’s like an Aladdin’s Cave of beautiful clothing, accessories and home-ware across the decades.

It’s been a treasure trove and I’m utterly devastated to see it go as it really was a jewel in Newcastle’s shopping crown. However, it’s going out with a bang with a MASSIVE closing down sale, with everything to go including everything they had in storage. Their very last day is Saturday 30th August where they’ll also be having a bit of a knees up so make sure you pop in to experience this beautiful store first hand, if you’ve never ever been before!

The North East Blogger Awards is the brainchild of creative communications agency O PR. Managing director Kari Owers has said:

“The bloggersphere is getting bigger and better in the North East so we felt it was time to celebrate our best bloggers; give them some recognition and something to celebrate. The evening will be a fun-packed evening of inspiration, networking and a celebration of the region’s best bloggers.

It’s easy to nominate a blogger you know or to nominate yourself if you’re a local blogger or business that blogs. Just log onto the North East Blogger Awards website, pick a category and fill in your reason for nominating. We are also using the hashtag #nebloggerawards on social media to help us spread the word.”

The shortlist will be announced on 30 September. Thanks and if you do like reading my blog – appreciate every little nomination!
