Rad Studio, Saltaire

Rad Studio shop, Saltaire, West Yorkshire

Just before Christmas I went to a fab little workshop where I made these origami diamond decorations. The workshop was the first held at Rad Studio in Saltaire, West Yorkshire, and it was perfect - we learned a unique crafty project, beer and buns were served and it cost just £8. Also perfect is this shop's stock. ...

Lambert’s Yard, Leeds

New designer fashion at Lambert

A little while ago, before the juicing and yoga event in the same building, I took the opportunity to have a good look around Lambert's Yard. Interested by its ethos of supporting new designers, I'd been looking for a chance to go inside since its launch in November 2014. Housed in a collection of old buildings on ...

Renne Jewellery

Helen and Annie Rennison of Renne Jewellery

With Mother's Day on Sunday, what better time to share this story of a mum and daughter who recently launched their first jewellery collection. Helen and Annie Rennison have always shared a passion for design and creativity and Renné Jewellery was born in early 2014. They'd been unable to find UK stockists of the old, characterful jewellery they were ...

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 ...

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 ...
