Bo Carter: ‘Forgotten Leeds’

Bo Carter fashion boutique

In the couple of years I've been writing this blog, Bo Carter's name has cropped up several times as one of the leading lights in Leeds fashion. She was born in Poland, had a spell in Holland, but moved to the UK 14 years ago and now calls Yorkshire home. "I would definitely call myself Cosmopolitan," she ...

What’s on in March and April

Advintageous spring vintage fair, Ridings Centre, Wakefield | www.angelinthenorth.com

Spring is a great time to be getting out and about to events and I wanted to give you a heads up on a few things happening in the north in the next few weeks that have caught my eye. I'm hoping to get to them all so if you are too, say hi! Advintageous spring vintage ...

Opening of Wasabi in Leeds

Opening of Wasabi Sushi and Bento at Trinity Leeds February 2014 | www.angelinthenorth.com

Just when I thought Trinity Leeds had given all it could, food-wise, a new and different invitation landed in my inbox. It was for the preview of the opening of Japanese food chain Wasabi. Now I haven't wandered this side of Leeds city centre recently but I gather from Twitter chat this place has been 'coming soon' for ...

Portrait photography workshop

Olympus photography workshop in Leeds with Neil Buchan-Grant | www.angelinthenorth.com

I'm not a good photographer, although since my husband bought me this camera being OK got a whole lot easier. It means I get a good shot often, and a great shot sometimes. But it's usually down to luck rather than good judgement or knowing what I'm doing. I'm conscious and a touch guilty that I'm not ...

How to decorate a 1960s house

Leeds 1960s house tour: how to decorate a 1960s house | www.angelinthenorth.com

I love my house, but not how it looks. We bought this place because it was in the right place at the right time and was a sound investment. I love what we're doing to the inside, but it's hard to renovate in the way that we're always told we should: by being true to the ...

Trinity Kitchen, Leeds: take two

Trinity Kitchen, Trinity Leeds

I was so struck by Trinity Kitchen when I went to the preview in October that I've been concerned my write-up may have been too gushing. I mean, I was there for less than an hour, I had food from one stall. Could it be as good as I thought? Luckily, my positive review left me with ...

Neal’s Yard Leeds blogger event

Neal

Neal's Yard is one of those brands that I buy to treat other people but rarely myself. Passing a shop always causes me to gape in at the beautiful royal blue displays. So I jumped at the chance to go to a blogger event at the Leeds store in County Arcade. It was really interesting to learn ...

Dress Me Beautiful fashion show, Leeds

Dress Me Beautiful fashion show at Leeds town hall 2013 | www.angelinthenorth.com

It was a Friday night and Leeds' grand town hall was full of hundreds of the city's most fashion-conscious people. The DMB (Dress Me Beautiful) fashion show has been going a eight years but this was my first time. The organisers are all about supporting local, up-and-coming and recently graduated designers. Even better, it raises money for ...

TK Maxx Style Tour comes to Leeds

TK Maxx style tour, Leeds | www.angelinthenorth.com

We all know that if you're prepared to put the time in, TK Maxx is a prime place to find a one-off designer gem at a bargain price. The Leeds store on The Headrow is one of my favourites around because, well, it's huge. It also has a Gold Label section which is where you will ...

Opening of Trinity Kitchen at Trinity Leeds

Indoor street food at Trinity Kitchen, the food hall at Trinity Leeds shopping centre | www.angelinthenorth.com

I wish I could have bottled up the atmosphere in this place and somehow presented it to you on the page. I was kindly invited to the Trinity Kitchen preview last Tuesday, ahead of its opening on Thursday, and thought the 45 minutes-or-so I had allocated to check it out would be enough. Not even close. There ...
