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 ...

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 ...

Pandora Wishes launch, Leeds

Pandora Wishes launch Leeds with Jamie and Louise Redknapp

A few days ago, I was named best friend in the world. The award-giver was my friend Emma, a pretty huge Jamie Redknapp fan. I'd been invited to an event in Leeds that the Redknapps were attending, and I'd got her along as my plus one. It was the launch of Pandora's winter Pandora Wishes campaign, backed ...

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 ...

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 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 ...

Cielo Blanco, Leeds

Pitcher cocktail at Livin Italy, Leeds

I've read a lot of good reviews about Cielo Blanco, so although I'd tired a little of eating and drinking in Trinity Leeds, I suggested to the girls we go back. It was one of our as-regular-as-we-can-manage Saturday afternoon-into-evening sessions involving cocktails, dinner and more cocktails. We started by soaking up one of the last sunny afternoons ...
