Fenwick Christmas Window Newcastle 2015

Sunday, 15th November, 2015

fenwick-window-newcastle-2015-1

If you live in Newcastle you’ll know all about the Fenwick Christmas window tradition. Each Christmas the window is dressed up in a Christmas or themed way, and is always a must see for everyone in Newcastle. Last year it was Alice In Wonderland, and this year’s window was unveiled last Friday. This year the window is a traditional Christmas scene, with a story about Santa’s sleigh crash landing on the roof of Fenwick.

This has been a Fenwick tradition for years, and also a tradition here on my blog, Michael 84 😀 What kind of Newcastle Lifestyle Blogger would I be without the Fenwick window featured on it! 😛

p.s. Sorry about the quality of the pictures, I will try to replace them with better ones if I can. It was daytime and I had to battle with families and small children! :mrgreen:

If you’ve missed out on all the previous ones, you can see all the ones I have covered right here on the blog below:

An Hour In Tynemouth

Wednesday, 11th November, 2015

tynemouth-day-2

One of the great things about living in the North East is that we have so much great stuff! We have Newcastle, the city, where I live. There’s the day life, shopping, eateries, scenery and plenty to do, with some of the best nightlife in the UK which you will all know about if you’re a regular reader of my blog 😉 Then to the South about 20 minutes drive we have the Metro Centre, the biggest indoor shopping centre in Europe! Yes, Europe, and it’s in the North East of England…Not Paris, not London, the North East! :mrgreen: Since we’re close to the coastline we have some great beaches too, and three seaside towns in a row, namely Tynemouth, Cullercoats and Whitley Bay. I was doing some photos at the beach for an upcoming blog feature, suede jackets in Autumn, so I decided to share a couple of pics of Tynemouth.

There’s a few beaches, including King Edwards Bay which is a Blue Flag beach. I walked along from Tynemouth to Cullercoats and took a few snaps. I was only there for a short time so I only took a few pics…In the future I may feature all three places in more detail; They’re all such cool little seaside towns 🙂

The great thing about it is all three are so close together, so you can easily walk through them all…They’re also all on the Metro line, so you can walk to/from each place or jump on the Metro to get from the centre of Newcastle to any of the three places.

Rugby World Cup In Newcastle

Thursday, 8th October, 2015

st-james-park-newcastle-rugby-2015

I love my city! 😛

I’m sure if you live in the UK or rugby crazy parts of the world, then it’s hard to miss that the rugby World Cup is on at the moment. England have just been knocked out, and they’re the first host nation to get knocked out the group stage. I am not a rugby fan, but it’s really cool that Newcastle was chosen as a host city, and has 3 games at St. James’ Park. One has just taken place last weekend, and we have two more to go.

Not only is there people in the stadium, we have a fan park which was full, and apparently has been the busiest fan park in the entire country! I was out on Saturday night and they had the England game on the big screen at the Monument too…The fan park was full!

I was out and about a few days ago so I took a few photos of the city, including the fan park which has a big wheel and a real carnival kind of atmosphere 🙂

NE1 Motor Show Newcastle – Part 5 – Racing Cars

Saturday, 11th July, 2015

ne1-motor-show-f1-redbull-5

One of the biggest highlights of the NE1 Motor Show has to be that there was the Red Bull F1 car to be seen, and it looked so good. The only previous time I have seen an F1 car this close was in the Ferrari store in London; They were not welcoming, had horrible security and stopped anyone taking photos. However Red Bull are amazing and nice! You could get up close to the car and take photos too which is what part of the experience is all about. There were other racing cars there too, from Aston Martin and Lotus.

At the NE1 Motor Show there were a lot of the new sports cars and super cars which I love, but then there were also a ton of classic sports cars which take me back to my childhood! Classics from Ferrari and Lamborghini, and how can I forget the Lotus Esprit, the first time I saw this car was from the iconic computer game Lotus Esprit Turbo Challenge! :mrgreen: It was like being a kid and playing old computer games like the original Gran Turismo, but seeing these cars all together and up close was pretty spectacular 🙂 The best of British from TVR, Italian Ferraris & Lambos, American Muscle courtesy of Corvette and much, much more.

You can check out the rest of the cars and photos I’ve taken at the NE1 Motor Show here. There was a F1 simulator which looked really cool, but I guess the line was really long so I did not bother with even attempting to get on it! 😛 There’s cars from Mill Volvo and Audi’s from Benfield, Nissan GTR, Infiniti Q50 and BMW i3. There’s also a few crowd shots, everyone seemed to have had a really good time at the show, hopefully this will be an annual thing 😉
