Back in February, I was invited to the #BloggersOnTheBus event held by Stagecoach and Mediaworks to promote their new Stagecoach Buss app. For someone like myself who relies heavily on public transport apps that allow you to buy mobile tickets, plan journeys and see live bus information makes everything a lot more simple. It’s like a serious lifesaver!
I did want to take the bus to the event however I had less than 30 minutes to get to Jalou, Newcastle which is where the event was held so I couldn’t of got there on time however I have used it since the event and can definitely recommend the app to anyone who does travel regularly on the Stagecoach services. The app makes buying bus tickets a lot easier and for someone who is always running late, seeing the live times is a god send. Unfortunately I still haven’t learnt my lesson of leaving the house slightly earlier so I’m not sprinting my way to the bus stop. You can find nearby bus stops as well as plan your trip which makes you feel a lot more organised.
To celebrate the release of the Stagecoach App, we were encouraged to get in touch with our creative sides and design a phone case. On arrival, I was greeted with a drink and sweets. Who can turn down a good old Celebration chocolate and a glass of Prosecco?! I also saw one of my blogging faves, Holly, who made everything a lot more enjoyable.
Ideas were scattered around the room however their was only one that caught my eye. Myself and Holly opted for the marble design which, of course, is every bloggers dream phone cases but also one of the hardest designs to make. We decided to test it on a spare case which we actually gave to Alice since she couldn’t make it. Little did we know it actually ended up being the best, oops!
To make the marble design; we had to dot blobs of nail varnish onto paper and then press the phone case into it which gave the marble effect as the shades mixed together. I went for purples and glitter but absolutely loved it! I am so proud of mine and Holly’s designs, they turned out brilliant if I do say so myself.
I would like to say a massive thank you to Stagecoach and Mediaworks for such an amazing event and I am very much looking forward to the next one!
