Yorkshire Three Peaks

Yorkshire Three Peaks: Pen-y-ghent | www.angelinthenorth.com

A few weeks ago, you might have read this moving account by one of my best friends Emma about living with a child with a serious illness. Her 18-month-old son Freddie, my godson, has chronic liver disease. Emma talked about how one of the ways she and her family have coped since the diagnosis has been to ...

Advintageous vintage fair

Advintageous Spring Vintage fair, Ridings Centre, Wakefield | www.angelinthenorth.com

I didn't keep quiet about how much I loved the Advintageous vintage fair when it came to Wakefield last spring. It brought a usually tired and quiet shopping centre to life with dancing, foot-tapping, victory rolls and red lipstick. So I was keen to go back this year and, as luck would have it (or perhaps good ...

Mother’s Day afternoon tea

Marmalade on the Square tea room Wakefield | www.angelinthenorth.com

I hope you all had a lovely Mother's Day yesterday. I took my mum for afternoon tea at a gorgeous tea room that opened a few months ago in Wakefield. Marmalade on the Square is housed in a rather fabulous three storey corner building that is more than 100 years old. Inside it's prettily decked out with shabby chic ...

What’s on in March and April

Advintageous spring vintage fair, Ridings Centre, Wakefield | www.angelinthenorth.com

Spring is a great time to be getting out and about to events and I wanted to give you a heads up on a few things happening in the north in the next few weeks that have caught my eye. I'm hoping to get to them all so if you are too, say hi! Advintageous spring vintage ...

Opening of Wasabi in Leeds

Opening of Wasabi Sushi and Bento at Trinity Leeds February 2014 | www.angelinthenorth.com

Just when I thought Trinity Leeds had given all it could, food-wise, a new and different invitation landed in my inbox. It was for the preview of the opening of Japanese food chain Wasabi. Now I haven't wandered this side of Leeds city centre recently but I gather from Twitter chat this place has been 'coming soon' for ...

Portrait photography workshop

Olympus photography workshop in Leeds with Neil Buchan-Grant | www.angelinthenorth.com

I'm not a good photographer, although since my husband bought me this camera being OK got a whole lot easier. It means I get a good shot often, and a great shot sometimes. But it's usually down to luck rather than good judgement or knowing what I'm doing. I'm conscious and a touch guilty that I'm not ...

Interiors UK show 2014

Light up letters and tan leather sofa at Interiors UK show 2014 | www.angelinthenorth.com

As you know if you've been following my house tour, we're gradually renovating the entire house. So I'm always looking for inspiration and ideas, and was pleased to be invited by Neville Johnson to attend the Interiors UK show at Birmingham's NEC. I took a friend who has recently bought a house which is also a ...

New Year’s Eve in Edinburgh

New Year

The last few New Year's Eves have been really sedate affairs for us. For the most part, I wasn't bothered: NYE always seemed over-rated, expensive and troublesome. But last year I decided that this year we'd get away. I left arranging it quite late, but managed to sneak in to a lovely boutique hotel in Edinburgh. Torchlight ...

Wood Street Christmas market, Wakefield

Wood Street Christmas market, Wakefield | www.angelinthenorth.com

I was impressed when I went to the first Wood Street market back in July. It certainly seemed the organisers had achieved their aim of bringing a bit of life back to a forgotten corner of Wakefield and showcasing independent sellers. The next two markets went on to be a success, so I was pleased to hear they ...

Neal’s Yard Leeds blogger event

Neal

Neal's Yard is one of those brands that I buy to treat other people but rarely myself. Passing a shop always causes me to gape in at the beautiful royal blue displays. So I jumped at the chance to go to a blogger event at the Leeds store in County Arcade. It was really interesting to learn ...
