Weekend in London: Sunday

Tower of London

[This is part two of my weekend in London with Superbreak. If you missed part one, catch up here!] We'd had a full day on Saturday, and felt pretty exhausted (in that good, satisfied way) when we got into bed at around midnight. At The Cavendish, we didn't have to check out until 1pm and they served ...

Weekend in London: Saturday

Vintage London red double decker open top bus

Sometimes, I pinch myself about the great opportunities this blog brings. One such time came when Superbreak invited me to spend a weekend in London trying out some of the tours and experiences they offer. I go down to London quite regularly for work and to see my brother, and my husband lived there for seven years. We feel we 'know' ...

Valentine’s Day table

Valentine

We don't usually make very much fuss about Valentine's Day. I find it's much better to say 'I love you' all year round, not just when you're obliged, don't you? That said, a few days ago my ever-generous husband booked for us to spend a night at one of our favourite hotels. We're going in a ...

Juicing basics with Currys

Curry

A couple of weeks ago, the day after a few too many cocktails in Leeds, I went to a blog event about wellbeing, juicing and yoga. I'd spent much of the afternoon and evening before working through the impressive drinks menu at Manahatta with my old work family. As I woke the next day I couldn't ...

Planning an Italian road trip

It's a good one. // 'Explore' pouch for travel documents is by Alphabet Bags at Let It Reign / I love summer and my Ray Ban Wayfarers / this 'Great Escapes' ...

Cabana Brasilian Barbecue, Leeds

Cabana Brasilian Barbecue, Leeds

After our evening with Jamie, we headed to one of Leeds' newest restaurants. It was opening night at Cabana Brasilian Barbecue and while I'd not been able to make the launch the night before, they'd kindly offered to shout me and a friend a meal some other time. So, perfect. As most people round here know, Leeds ...

Blogger lunch at Mill Kitchen

Blogger lunch at Mill Kitchen, Farsley, Leeds, West Yorkshire

After enjoying the blogger walk around Bingley, we decided to make meet-ups a regular thing. So it was a sunny Sunday that Jen, Fran, Natalie and I got together again, at the Mill Kitchen in Farsley, Leeds. This time we were also joined by Nadine, another Fran and Daisy. The venue was Jen's recommendation, and what a good one ...

Weekend in the Lake District

Coniston, Lake District, Cumbria, England, UK

Last week there was bad news again. The kind that makes you cry, gasp for breath and feel scared and bewildered. The kind that makes you want to run for the hills and hide out for a bit. Coincidentally, we were due a weekend in the Lake District for the Mr's birthday (and mine which was a couple of weeks ...

Trinity Kitchen 1st birthday

Street food and music at Trinity Kitchen first birthday, Trinity Leeds

You may recall how gushing I was when Trinity Kitchen first opened. Last month Trinity Leeds' street food hall celebrated its first birthday and it seemed only right to show up and wish it many happy returns. Oh, if I must also eat while there and listen to singer and 'show-woman extraordinaire' Em Brulée, so be it :) ...

10 things to do this week

Home Is In The North, Manchester

1. Work out how you can get to Manchester on 15 November for Home Is In The North. You may recall I was pretty taken with the first such event, hosting independent northern interior designers, in April. I'd be going again but it's my husband's birthday and we're off on a relaxing lakeside getaway. The theme of ...
