Comfy sofas, the latest fashion, canapés and fizz? All on a Tuesday evening? Oh go on then. With a fashionable invite from intu Eldon Square, I couldn’t resist heading to their launch event for their new Shopzone Lounge, on now until 17th October this month.
We had some of Newcastle’s beautiful models from Tyne Tees Models and Miss Newcastle showing off some of the latest trends from the shopping centre.
We were treated to plenty of delicious canapés, drinks, demonstrations from Dior, all to live music, right in the middle of St Andrew’s Way.
I had a lovely chat to some of the staff from Wagamama, the expert stylists from John Lewis – who’d pulled all the outfits together that night as well as the trendy shop assistants from River Island.
There was a chance that night and there will be every single day the Shoplounge is open to win a £50 intu gift card. Simply ‘Strike a Pose’ by their photo board and share a #newleaf snap on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram. To find out more about this competition, click here.
Make sure you pop in as there’ll be plenty of chances for you to turn over a new leaf this autumn with their special service offering style suggestions and information on the very latest trends.
The Fashion/Beauty Shopzone Lounge area also gives you a chance to win a £250 intu gift card to refresh their wardrobe by sharing your shopping inspirations, click here for more info.

Thanks for reading and ciao for now!
Some of you may not have heard of Victorinox but you will instantly recognise their logo and the fact that they’re behind the infamous Swiss Army Knife. Yes THAT Vicotrinox.
Now what does a swiss army knife have to do with my blog, I hear you ask? Well, many people don’t know this but Victorinox actually create a whole range of gorgeous products, from stunning watches, perfumes, clothing designed by Christopher Raeburn to beautiful bags. All made to the same quality and standard as their famous red knife.
I was excited to discover their beautiful new range of packable backpacks. I instantly adored this colour and concept. I always carry around a small canvas bag in my handbag, but sometimes it doesn’t do the trick. This is fantastic for a typical urban dweller and in particular, it’s going to be ultra handy now the UK bag ban has come in!
It starts off so small, as a handily little zip up pouch…
and then folds out to be a very decent backpack!
I love it and have already even used it as a full sized backpack for a trip to the Lake District.
