Blog at the Beach event with icelolly.com

When I think about what I would do if I had more time or more money, the answer is always travel.   I’ve done pretty well so far – I’ve seen Australia, Thailand, Sri Lanka, America and a lot of Europe. But for the last few years the brakes have been put on the exploring, for financial reasons ...

Fire Lake Grill House at Radisson Blu, Leeds

Fire Lake Grill and cocktail bar at Radisson Blu hotel, Leeds, Yorkshire, UK

The last time I entered the ground floor of the Radisson Blu hotel in Leeds it was to meet family who were staying there for a coffee. It was a functional foyer; not a place to indulge or linger. That has certainly changed now. As I stepped back in recently to try out the new Fire Lake ...

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. ...

What I wore: a perfect jumpsuit

Warehouse black off-shoulder jumpsuit

I wore this perfect jumpsuit for a day out in Leeds with the girls on Saturday. I felt pretty great wearing it to be honest and it drew immediate compliments from my friends. I reckon you're onto a winner when someone says you're reminiscent of Sandy from Grease, am I right? (These girls are the best confidence boosters). // ...

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 ...

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 :) ...
