    January Restaurant Deals in Leeds

    It’s Blue January and I feel like the only highlight of the month is that almost every single restaurant has a promotion on. It could end in a catch 22 being broke and spending more money than any other month of the year, to take advantage of all the January restaurant deals. I say it’s  worth it to survive the dullness January brings. If you’re looking to go, I’ve put together a list of restaurants I think you should take the opportunity to try out. I’ve also included a list of restaurants I’d like to go to this month as I might not go otherwise. 5 restaurant deals not to…

  • The Neighbourhood Leeds

    The Neighbourhood in Leeds

    Th outdoor seating area doesn’t do The Neighbourhood any favours. It’s not until you reach the entrance and its heavy door (don’t stumble on yourself opening it like I almost did) you know you’re in for something different. The entrance wall is fully decorated with plants and flowers. Even though they’re fake, it’s still a very impressive wall. The rest of the restaurant follow suit: an urban tropical theme filled with neon lights, graffiti walls, bauble lights and playful green chairs. The light isn’t the best for taking stunning photos but still you can’t resist because everything’s so photogenic. Whilst waiting for my lovely dates for the evening, I treated…

    Bars I’d Like to Visit in Leeds

    Thanks to this year’s Cocktails in the City event, I’ve discovered a couple of bars in Leeds I’d like to visit which I haven’t had a chance to yet. With so many new places opening up on a weekly basis it’s hard to keep up. Cocktails in the City is the perfect event to get most of them gathered under one roof and the opportunity to try different cocktails from different bars. Vice & Virtue At the Cocktails in the City event, Vice & Virtue served me my favourite cocktail of the evening – a Yorkshire Lass. It also won the jury’s votes for the venting and I believe also…

    In Winter I Enjoy Comfort Food

    Winter time is coming. It’s ridiculous to say because it wasn’t long ago we switched to autumn but it has gone so quick and I’ve now got Christmas in my head. I’ve not wanted to write about Christmas earlier (even though I’ve attended Christmas parties already) and shouldn’t still because it’s not been Halloween yet. But, since my Halloween crafts didn’t go as planned, I’m scrapping Halloween and focusing on Christmas and winter instead. Like we want fresh salads and ice cream in summer, all we want in autumn and winter is hot soups and slow cooked stews. Am I right? Luckily for us, the restaurants are well and ready for…

  • Italian restaurants

    Where to eat Italian in Leeds

    Italian is by far one of the best foods. I could live on fresh pasta, parmesan, pizza, antipasto every day, any day. When going out for food, Italian restaurants are always guaranteed to have something for everyone’s taste. I’ve recently visited two here in Leeds (Livin’ Italy & Jamie’s Italian) and I had different experiences in both, which is another reason Italian is one of the best foods. Livin’ Italy After my mum and I had had our nails done at Pastille Beauty Bar in Granary Wharf (blog post here), we walked round the corner to Livin’ Italy for some food and drinks. I’ve heard good things about this place so I…
