they got there, and what they would tell their younger selves.

is in helping businesses to predict the future of life at home, how it will
impact their organisation, and the key to capitalising on that opportunity.
They work with international clients and Joanna has built a business that is
dynamic, exciting and in our opinion one to watch.
beautiful satchels are inspired by the British schoolbag from years gone by
which have been reimagined into stunning satchels in a range of sizes and
styles. What’s more all of their products are crafted here in the UK.
Julie Dean and her mother Freda started The Cambridge Satchel

the right amount of determination and eye for a gap in the market, anything is
We can’t help but be inspired by Julie Deane and The Cambridge
Satchel company as it is so much like many small independent businesses run by
women in the UK. And it gives us an example of a great idea being transformed
into a successful business. And here at Powder Butterfly we love celebrating
and championing independent business success.

everything great about culture from across the North East. The blog was created
and is managed by the lovely and very ambitious, Rachel Horton, who has also
personally contributed to this blog a little further down, so be sure to read

creatives, festivals, and businesses to make sure everyone knows exactly what
is going on in the North East and uncovering hidden gems along the way. Make
sure you check out her blog.
She is also running an event in 2020 exploring blogging and
influencing, and has recently announced Rosie Ramsey as one of her guest
speakers. Interested in attending? Check it out here.
So, we were curious to find out what these amazing women
tell their younger selves if they had the opportunity? We picked the brains of
Ann English and Rachel Horton. This is what they had to say…
People always ask you from a young age “what do you want to be
when you grow up?” As a young child we dream big with “Ballet Dancer,” “Astronaut,” or “Vet” all achievable
However, ask a teenager the same question and they often feel
lost without a clear focus, these dreams have died. They get stressed just
thinking about it if they don’t have any idea what they would like to do.
advice is don’t worry, because the job you will do, your dream job, may not
have been invented yet!
For 25years I designed Christmas Displays and Santa’s Grottos for
all of the major shopping centres in the UK. A few years earlier, when I was at
Art College, The MetroCentre which was the first of its kind in the UK, hadn’t
been built. I then went on to invent The Metrognomes – prior to that they
In 2005 I founded my own business ‘Charlie’s Chocolate Factory’ when I wanted something different for my 40th
Birthday party. I spotted a chocolate fountain on an American website and said
to my husband “WOW, I’ve got to have one of those!” I’d never seen one in real
life as they were very new to the UK, so we bought one, created an events
company and became a ‘Chocolatier‘
being paid to go to other people’s parties.
I’ve since founded two specialist visual communications companies
– Create Intrigue and The Visual Marketing
Academy™. I‘ve developed the Vision Mapping process, creating VisionTrees™
and SignatureSystems™, and I also train SMEs on Visual Merchandising techniques
which I’ve brought up to date with the digital era. Again, none of these things
existed a few years ago.
I’ve had an amazing dream career; who knew I’d end up working for
the Big 3 – Santa Claus, Willy Wonka and Mickey Mouse!
So my advice is this, if you don’t know what you want to be…
don’t worry. That is a brilliant and exciting place to start. Your life will
evolve and your dream career will one day appear, as it may not have been
Rachel Horton, Owner of Culture Vulture
The Culture Vulture is a Northern cultural
champion and creative adventurer – passionate about creative people and indie
happenings in the region. SO much so, I’ve made a business out of it. As The
Culture Vulture, I do everything from Marketing strategy development and implementation,
PR, audience development, cultural programming, event management, project
management, social media management, content creation…. and I led on my own
projects and happenings too as The Culture Vulture.
The Culture Vulture started as an idea and it’s developed from
the people and projects I’ve been involved in. It’s been a labour of love – a
mega labour of love. I’ve carved out my own niche in the cultural sector and I
get a buzz off giving a platform to those to champion themselves, especially
those who don’t really have a platform but are hidden gems – doing mint
My future plans are all about growth in terms of project
ambitions and client base – I’m trying to figure out if I want to keep it just
me with freelance support around me or whether, I want to have a small team
around me of employees.
I’ve just hosted a mental health event at
the Thought Foundation for freelancers and self-employed. It was small but
perfectly formed and it’s an area I’m super passionate about
developing and working on as an independent. That event proved to
me that there is a traction there and I’m excited to be developing it into a
project in 2020.
My next big event is on 6th February at Gosforth Civic Theatre –
it’s called “Influencing in 2020” and is basically a social media
“conference”. I started running these years ago, as I was sick of lush
events happening down South and costing fortune – I’m all about the thriving
and vibing North and keeping it mega accessible on ticket price.
I can’t reveal all my speakers just yet – but I’m interviewing
Rosie Ramsey. Rosie is lush – has such a brilliant Insta account and podcast –
so this year, i knew I just wanted her to come and chat about keeping it real
She really proves my ethos of being your authentic self on social
– imperfectly perfect and creating real connections with folks. She’s
hilarious! I’ve also got The Slow Traveler speaking – who is also a local lass!
Carolyn has got 223k followers on Instagram and her account is beaut. I first
became aware of her when she faked a trip on social media to Disneyland Paris
as her Sunderland University photography project – it went viral globally and
was also an excellent nod to how “influencers” really
“curate” their own truth! Check out the event and get tickets here
What advice would I give to my younger self?
Stop striving to be like everyone else and desperately trying to
fit in…….have confidence to walk on your own path! And stop trying to be a
version of yourself that your parents want – you will never match their
conventional expectations and that’s ok. #takeawalkonthewildside

There has been a movement recently here in the UK in which consumers are beginning to shop locally again. I say again because long before the introduction of the supermarket and warehouse shopping became popular, people everywhere would go to their local markets and high street shops to purchase the things they needed. Everything from clothing and home goods, to hardware, crafts and more were purchased this way and we got high quality products and unmatched service every time we shopped. We counted on local businesses to have what we needed, when we needed it.
With the introduction of these large
retail shopping centres, many local businesses had to close up shop. While many
of the products being sold at these retailers were imported from overseas and
weren’t as high of quality as you would find locally, the prices were low and
that is what attracted many buyers. Another drawback that came along with
shopping with these large retailers is that buying imported goods increased the
carbon footprint of both the retailer and the buyer.
The Local Economy-
when you shop your local vendors, you are putting your money right back into
the local economy. If everyone in your community shopped locally, the entire
community would thrive. This is because every time you spend money with a local
creative business, that money goes back into the community whenever that
retailer purchases something local as well. Local independent businesses depend
on your purchases to feed their families and send their children off to uni.
Additionally, many of the local creative businesses are selling products that
you will often find copied by much larger retailers who are only looking to
make a profit and they don’t care who they are taking their money from. In short,
shop locally and buy the original.
for local meats, dairy and produce are not only a good way to support local
farms, but it can also improve your family’s health and well-being. It can also
help reduce many food and environmental allergies. And, when you receive a gift
of a high quality, unique Made In Britain item, you will know that some thought
went into that gift and you will feel even more special. What’s more, the
homeware found at many of your local independent retailers can help you achieve
a personalised look for your home that reflects your inimitable personality.
when you shop locally and purchase products that are Made In Britain, you are
reducing your overall carbon footprint as these products are both made and sold
locally, without being imported from overseas which can cause more pollution
than necessary. Buy locally made products with the Made In Britain logo and get
higher quality products along with better value for your money.
when shopping online, you rarely get to talk to an actual person, and when you
do, the service leaves a lot to be desired. Shopping locally means that you get
to talk to the retailer and the service is typically much better in person. The
local business owner also has a lot more riding on that sale so they will make
sure that their staff is always putting the needs of the customer first.
People Behind The Product- shopping locally ensures that you meet the person you are buying from.
You get more personalised service and you begin to build better
Community One-Of-A-Kind- there are many benefits to shopping locally which have a direct effect
on the local community, but shopping locally also indirectly affects local
commerce. When you shop locally, you make your community one-of-a-kind and that
can draw tourists as they search for unique British-made goods.

Here in Newcastle, we are spoilt for choice
when it comes to food and drink. From Michelin starred restaurants to quirky
British street food stalls, there is something for everyone. With so much
choice it can be a challenge to sort the best of the best from the ordinary.
That’s why we have created this helpful article that showcases the best of what
Newcastle (and the North East) has to offer.
Fat Hippo is in a league of its own when it
comes to finding the ultimate burger in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.
Located in a subterranean vault you could be
forgiven for thinking that you were dining in ultra-trendy Shoreditch, London. Over the years Fat Hippo has earned cult burger-joint status
amongst the Geordie nation, something which is not to be sniffed at when
considering the plethora of gourmet burger outlets available across the city.
Here it is all about the burger, from their
famous, succulent patties to the sweet brioche buns and skin-on chips, you will
not leave disappointed.
House of Tides is Newcastle’s only
Michelin starred restaurant, offering a casual fine dining experience with
modern British cooking.
Born and bred geordie, Kenny
Atkinson opened House of Tides back in 2014, breathing new life into a grade 1
listed former merchant townhouse on Newcastle’s stunning quayside.
House of Tides offers an
experience which we believe all foodies should try. Although the fixed tasting
menu might seem expensive, it is totally justified in the exquisite quality of
the food, and you can see how much time and effort goes into developing each
dish. There’s an appealing wine pairing to compliment and the service is second
Blackfriars is really is part of the furniture
in Newcastle. It has been the North East foodie’s go-to Sunday Lunch eatery for
what seems like forever, winning multiple awards including being crowned the
best Sunday Lunch in Newcastle on more than one occasion.
Nestled away from the hustle and bustle of
Newcastle’s busy streets, punters can enjoy dining in a 13th century
former medieval friary, which is believed to be the oldest dining room in the
Alongside its low ceilings and age-old beams,
Blackfriars serves up gutsy, traditional British food, created from top-quality
produce from local farms. Their belly-busting Sunday Lunch certainly lives up
to expectation and is the perfect prelude to a well earned Sunday afternoon
The Brownie Bar has been supplying the streets
of Newcastle with their trademark delicious brownies since 2010, growing into
two stores, in Heaton and the other in Eldon Garden – one of the North East’s
busiest shopping centres.
There are over 30 varieties to choose from
with new flavours being developed all the time. The scrumptious brownies feature
sweet treats such as Oreo, Nutella, peanut butter, and salted caramel amongst
others, and they are perfectly paired with the impressive selection of
If you are looking for a top-quality, sweet
treat to satisfy your cravings, you’ll struggle to beat the Brownie Bar.
Strictly speaking the Running Fox is not in
Newcastle, but about 25 miles to the North slap-bang in the centre of
Northumberland’s stunning countryside. Trust me, it is well worth the journey!
Afternoon tea is often a hard sell, especially
to boyfriends and husbands. However, the Running Fox is a little bit different.
From the tasty sandwiches and epic pies to the delicious wedges of cake you
really will not be disappointed. The food is rustic and filling with portion
sizes so generous that finishing it can be a challenge. Don’t worry though, the
staff are quick to package any leftovers to enjoy later.
This quirky café should be placed right at the
top of your ‘must visit list’, but make sure you book in advance, it’s
If you have a thirst to quench, then you can
do a lot worse than heading to Wylam Brewery. Set amongst one of Newcastle’s
beautiful city centre parks, Wylam Brewery brought Exhibition Park’s Palace of
Arts back to life. It had been derelict and beginning to decay.
The Wylam Brewery Tap Room is the envy of pubs
and beer houses not only in the North East, but also right across the UK. There
are 14 keg taps on the bar wall featuring the freshest beer around. From the
4.0% Gold Tankard through to the colossally strong 10% Imperial Macciato coffee
porter there is something to tickle the taste buds of every punter. Don’t worry
if you do not like beer, there’s a fantastic selection of small batch spirits
and artisan wines to sample.
