    Love Lagree, a New Fitness Gym in Leeds

    Leeds is starting to become a bit of a fitness mecca with new gyms and fitness classes being introduced. As a fitness enthusiast I don’t mind one bit. The latest and hottest trend coming from across the pond, also in London, is Lagree. Lagree is a high intensity, low impact training method which many celebrities say has transformed their bodies. So if you’re not into classes filled with jumping exercises and prefer working with your own body over heavy weights, this is the perfect training method for you. I love trying new things so when owners and instructors Lorraine Jenkins and Craig Noble invited me down to their Love Lagree* studio…

  • Strike a Bowling Pose

    Strike a Bowling Pose at Tenpin in Leeds

    “Let’s bowl, let’s bowl, let’s rock n’ roll. Hey, come on, let’s get the show on the road.” These are the first lines of ‘Score Tonight’ from Grease 2 (the best of the two films I should add) when they’re out bowling. I always get this song stuck in my head when bowling is mentioned. When I go bowling myself, I wish everyone would start dancing like they do in the film but it never happens. Alas, a fun pose for the camera will do. I’ve always loved bowling. Perhaps because my dad competed in his younger days and showed me some techniques. Only how to walk and where to aim…

    Things I’d Like to Achieve in 2019

    I’m no different to any other blogger out there, of course I have a blog post listing things I’d like to achieve in 2019. I like to set goals because if I don’t, I get lost and perhaps won’t get around to completing anything. I love writing lists, being able to tick things off once done. There’e something so satisfactory seeing a tick next to big achievements like getting my UK citizenship last year or small tasks like washing the towels. For this year, I don’t want to set too many goals and run the risk of not being able to do all of them. My 2019 goals list is…

    My 35 Highlights of 2018

    Where did this year go? We’ve only got a couple of hours left of 2018. As always the end of the year is extra special for me as it was my birthday yesterday. Turning 35 and the anxiety I had turning 30 came back but luckily not as strong. Like last time, as soon as the birthday was over, the anxiety disappeared but I still don’t like the number. THIRTY FIVE! It sounds and looks so old but there’s nothing I can do about it. I’m going to embrace it and to be honest, I like being in my 30s more than my 20s. To celebrate my 35 years I…

  • Junkyard Golf Club Leeds

    Crazy Golf and Cocktails at Junkyard Golf Club in Leeds

    I love mini golf. I used to play it a lot when I was younger with my parents, with my dad in particular. Every summer we would go now and again to play at various outdoor mini golf courses. Crazy golf on the other hand is a fairly new thing for me but I enjoy that too. I couldn’t wait to check out Leeds’ latest addition – Junkyard Golf Club. Junkyard Golf Club have courses in London, Oxford, Manchester and now also Leeds, since a month or so. You find it in The Light, on the second floor, opposite the escalators that lead up to the cinema. It’s a very…
