I only spent an hour or so at Yum! Food Fest in Victoria Square, Hull but still managed to soak in the warm inviting atmosphere and grab a delicious handmade cookie whilst I was busy taking photos for this very post! I was invited to blog at Yum! after blogging for Hull Fashion Week and although I’m not a food blogger I do love food so I jumped at the opportunity. Below are some of my pictures which really do speak for themselves at what local delights were on offer.
As you may or may not know, (I have done 2 posts on it now!) I was recently lucky enough to go to the #LincsBlogMeet organised by Bel from Journeys Are My Diary and Amy from Cocktails in Teacups. If you haven’t already read my post about the event, and also the the Boots goody bag that I received, please check them out as it was such a great day and I kindly received so many lovely things. This goody bag put together by Bel and Amy is amongst those lovely things and I’d like to thank the organisers as well as all the companies who donated (I will leave a list below). I think my favourite items in the bag were possibly the Lush Dark Angles Cleanser and the Lincolnshire Co-Op China Cup however all the products were absolutely lovely and I shall be using and reviewing most if not all of them! To see the products up close and read more information please read on! Here is a list of all the companies who so kindly donated!

I love taking perfume samples away when I’m travelling or just popping them in my handbag – thank you Fragrance Direct!
|As mentioned in my last post on Hull Fashion Week, this was my favourite outfit from the slot that I had to cover. I love the 1960’s retro feel to this outfit, it reminds me of a coat I saw at the York Castle Sixties Exhibition which I posted about here. It’s so summery and something you could definitely wear this summer.|
|The second outfit I’ve chosen is also one from my slot. It’s such a simple but effective outfit using monochrome which I think is in this season (it’s in every season!). I don’t normally love hats however I think this model pulls the look off great. Also, I HAVE THAT AMAZING TSHIRT!|
|If you know me you know I have a thing for polka dots so naturally I fell in love with this polka dot summer dress with lace trim. I feel this dress would be perfect for a summer’s day picnic or walk in the park, who’s with me?|
|I think this is a really great ‘festival-type’ look that is really proving popular. I love the floral dress and the clash of colour with the red denim jacket. Also, the jacket has tartan detail which I am always a bit partial to!|
|If my memory serves me right this was a rework piece, I think it is a bit short however it would be great on a hot summers day the lace and the floral and the dusky pink are so pretty!|
|The last outfit I have chosen is this brilliant casual vintage look, again a great summer outfit and looks effortless but still lovely.|
|Dancing Models: I particularly loved the way this group of models were dressed- especially that mint green dress!|
|The fisherman’s sweaters looked so cosy and I think these would look amazing on both men and women|
|I think these outfits were my favourite outfits of the day – Both have a 60’s feel and would be amazing in summer|
|Particularly this orange playsuit which reminds me of the outfits at the Sixties Exhibition at York Castle Museum|
|Beasley’s Menswear – Fabulous pinstripe jacket|
|The catwalk also showed off some amazing prom dress designed|
|And finished promoting the local ‘Hull Is Where The Heart Is Tee’s’ made by Thieving Harry’s|
