Elderflower foraging and meal at Crafthouse Leeds

Elderflower foraging event and meal at Crafthouse Leeds

In all my visits to the bars and eateries of Trinity Leeds, I hadn't until recently made it to Crafthouse. I'm pleased that my first visit was such a great one, at the fine dining restaurant's first elderflower foraging event. At Crafthouse and its upstairs sister Angelica, elderflower and gooseberry form a large part of the menu in the summer. ...

Life lately and finding space

Anderby Creek, Lincolnshire

My blog has been neglected of late. Letting go and accepting I wouldn't update for a few weeks - that I couldn't - wasn't easy. I haven't really had a dry spell since I started blogging more than three years ago. The first five months of this year have been demanding and non-stop at work, but now ...

The City Girls, Sheffield

The City Girls event Sheffield

I am so late posting about The City Girls' first event that they are well on their way with organising the second. Apologies. It was at the end of April when Holly-Lucy and Lorna finally saw the fruits of their labour, as their first blog event came to life at Bloo 88 in Sheffield. It turned out to ...

Bloggers lunch in Todmorden

Site Pizzeria, Todmorden, Yorkshire

I'd not managed to make the last #YorkshireBloggers meet so I was keen to make this one to catch up with the group. Plus, we were set to explore Todmorden, a place that was new to me. Todmorden is less developed and polished than its Calder Valley neighbour Hebden Bridge - but it's on the up. Like Hebden, ...

Element Jewellery exhibition

Element Jewellery spring 2015 designer jewellery exhibition

My friends at Element Jewellery have been in touch to let me know about their designer jewellery exhibition, taking place on Saturday. This independent shop in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, has an event like this every spring when they launch several new collections. Cool Brighton jewellers Alex Goodman and Nicky Morris - who make gemstone jewellery and contemporary ...

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 ...
