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 ...

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 ...

Yorkshire Meatball Company

The Yorkshire Meatball Company, Harrogate, North Yorkshire

As well as learning a new skill at the wreath-making workshop, it was lovely - as always - to meet and get to know better some other Yorkshire bloggers. Emma and Amy I'd met just a few days earlier at Roast + Conch, Lil I hadn't met before but I read her blog and have followed ...

Making a Christmas wreath

Christmas festive wreath-making workshop with Katie Laura Flowers Harrogate

A couple of weeks ago, Emma invited me with some other bloggers to a festive wreath-making workshop in Harrogate led by Katie. It was a sunny Sunday morning, and I drove north listening to some radio cheese (Sunday love songs on Radio 2 if you must know). I stepped into Katie's loft-like studio and was hit by the scent of fresh greenery. A cup ...

Hotel Chocolat Roast + Conch

Hotel Chocolat Roast + Conch Leeds

From the moment it arrived on Leeds' streets, Hotel Chocolat's Roast + Conch restaurant and bar always held intrigue for me. Through the window, you can see its deep brown banquette seating and a warm orange glow of light and you know that inside they are cooking up food and drink in honour of the beloved ...

Blogger walk around Bingley

Walk around Bingley West Yorkshire

I'll be honest, I have a tendency to regard Bradford and its surrounds as a rather inconvenient obstacle to my getting from my side of West Yorkshire to the Yorkshire Dales. So Bingley is not the first location that springs to mind when I think of going walking. But this town just outside Bradford, famous for its five ...

Handmade Huddersfield home

Felt Mountain Studios handmade home in Marsden Huddersfield Yorkshire

How many of us have been in this situation: you're home from travelling, you're working low paid jobs, you're back living with mum and dad and you can't afford to rent your own place let alone buy. Well I'm about to tell you about one Yorkshire woman's ingenious solution. Stephanie Bertenshaw took three garages next to her parents' ...

Blogger buffet at The Light

Blogger buffet at the Light, Leeds. Cafe Rouge, Miller and Carter, Frankie and Bennys and Browns

As blogger events go, this promised to be good. We were invited to The Light, Leeds, for a 'blogger buffet' with a different course at four of the venue's restaurants. Off The Headrow, The Light has been on the scene for a while and, as new shopping centres emerge in the city it seems to have found its ...

Bird and Beast, Leeds

Bird and Beast rotisserie chicken restaurant, Leeds, Yorkshire

While not much of a fan of fast food, I do like food that is fast and functional. It helps if it is also hearty and delicious, which makes Leeds' new-ish restaurant, Bird and Beast, a winner for me. Bird and Beast serves free range chicken grown at Sykes Farm in the Yorkshire Wolds. This gives the ...
