Arriving in Stoke on Saturday morning, I drove us up to our pal Alex’s place. We did go to the city centre on the Saturday, but it was all too busy to actually look around the shops properly, so we headed out to The Trafford Centre on the Sunday. It’s fair to say we both ate like QUEENS this weekend with Five Guys and our trip to Bill’s Restaurant too.And if there’s one way to make two bloggers smile, it’s definitely with food. I really do enjoy being a bit of a tour guide and showing people places which I love. Although as proven on the Saturday trip in to town, it doesn’t always go to plan. This is why I really wanted to make the trip a bit more special on the Sunday and ensure that Victoria saw something a bit more impressive. I remember the first time I went to the Trafford Centre and I was constantly in awe of the building itself! Although I am from Stoke… So even the lamest of architecture can seem impressive at times!
One of the great things about blogging and being part of the blog community, is that you always acquire friends from it. Whether you’re a food blogger, beauty blogger, or well, any other blogger, there is a community on Twitter (and other places) to talk to like minded people. That’s pretty much how me and Victoria ended up being friends. Sometimes it feels a little cheesy to go on about what great pals you have, but it’s also sometimes really great to reflect on what opportunities blogging can bring you! This is why going to events and getting stuck in with conversations is totally worth it. I’ve known Victoria for around 3 years now – we’ve even been to Leeds Festival twice together and she often comes to visit for a night of drinks and dancing! It’s an awesome example of how a friendship can grow in a non creepy way from an online life. Chisholm Hunter recently did a #FriendshipGrows campaign, and even the content of the box reminded me of Victoria; with the little vintage pegs and floral theme.
Now I’ve demonstrated I do have a heart, I think I’d better get back to Twitter and spread a little controversy!
