    My First Spa Experience | Redworth Hall Hotel

    I’ve finally been to a spa. Can you believe I was in my mid-thirties going to a spa for the first time? Have I been missing out – definitely, will I go back – you bet! When my mum booked tickets to come see me earlier this summer, we decided to take a mini spa weekend away. Researching spa deals in and fairly close to Leeds, I came across Redworth Hall Spa. Just outside of Darlington, a luxurious spa facility part of Redoworth Hall Hotel. Via Spabreaks.com we got a great deal: two going for the price of one. Included in the £158 package we got a one night stay…

    Taking a Gin Journey around Leeds with Slingsby Gin

    Let’s go on a gin journey around Leeds. A Slingsby gin journey to be more exact! A couple of days ahead of the event, our meeting point was revealed but the rest of the bars involved came as a surprise throughout the day. During four or so hours, we talked, learnt and sipped on nothing but gin. It was gin o’clock all afternoon. Slingsby Gooseberry | Poison Bar Our gin journey ended at Slingsby’s beginning and started with their most recent gin flavour: gooseberry, which happens to be my favourite of theirs. I like it best served with Mediterranean tonic but the bartenders at Poison Bar in Leeds made a…

    Where I am at with my Goals for 2019

    We’re well into half of this year. Where has 2019 gone? I usually ask myself this question around this time of year. Summer tends to be a busier time of year for happenings and when weekends ahead are filled up with plans, it’s easy to think ahead of time and feeling like the year is soon coming to an end. But no!, we’ve still got plenty of time left. There is no need to panic if goals set at the beginning of the year aren’t met yet, or haven’t even begun to take place. Let’s take a look and see where I am at with my goals for 2019. Goals…

    Arts in Leeds | Where Food Portraits Like a Piece of Art

    Arts Restaurant, former known as Arts Cafe, on Call Lane has a new head chef and I was invited to try their new menu, before its official launch. Arts has been around for 20 odd years and I’ve been a couple of times before. It’s the perfect lunch spot during a full day of shopping but at night turns into a cosy high end restaurant. It’s actually interesting how it’s doing so well, surrounded by mainly bars, but the truth is, the food is too good not to come back for more. If I thought the food was great when it was Arts Cafe, Simon Turner’s new menu is that…

  • How to Make Your Hair Grow Faster

    How My Hair Grew 3 cm in a Month

    Have you ever come out of the hair dressers with your hair a lot shorter than you anticipated or asked for? I have and it makes me cry!! During my recent hairdresser visit, I was the one who asked for something different to what we normally do. I asked for short hair. I did however not ask for such short hair that I got so started crying on my way home. As the Brit I now am, I didn’t have the heart to say at the hairdressers. I was lucky my hair was long enough to tie back whilst undergoing a fast hair growth regime. For anyone else who’d like…
