My Camping Weekend At Knights Stainforth

I never liked the idea of camping. If you had asked me this time last year if I would like to go camping for a weekend in Autumn, I would have probably laughed in your face, said ‘ABSOLUTELY NOT‘ and proceeded to explain why. (How gross you feel when you wake up in the morning […]

Gin Night At The White Hart Hotel

Gin has recently been growing on me, adding another alcohol to my list of favourite bevvies. I don’t drink fizzy drinks but I sure drink alcohol… Don’t even get me started on Slingsby’s rhubarb gin – mixed with elderflower tonic, it is possibly the tastiest drink around… and therefore possibly the most dangerous! So give […]

How To Enjoy The Last Weekend of Summer

It’s the last weekend of the summer holidays for most people – aka, school kids, parents, teachers… (Although did summer ever actually arrive this year? Old, grumpy sun worshipper, me.)

Leeds Gin Festival 2017

They say that there is no finer pass-time than drinking with friends… Well, I don’t know who actually says that, but I do think it is pretty good mantra!

A Weekend In Northumberland

In less than two weeks, I will be leaving the UK, for 8 months, to live and work in sandier pastures. So these weeks that lead up to my departure have been critical for rearranging my life – resigning from jobs, saying goodbye to friends, planning how much Dairy Milk chocolate I can physically fit […]

When Soap Looks Good Enough To Eat

It’s taken me a while to get around to writing this post… But I’ve really wanted to wait until I’d taken a bath and could give a proper review. Alas, 2 weeks later, I have still not bathed. (Oh I do smell…) Jokes! I have, of course, showered. I just haven’t had the time, or […]

A Taste Of Italy In Harrogate

This time last year, I was sailing the Mediterranean sea, visiting different ports of Italy every other day of the week… Eating lots of pizza, drinking the best coffee I’ve had (and milk is not common with Italian coffee, so it was hardcore stuff!) and sitting in blazing sun surrounded by European beauty. Seeing pictures […]

A Week Of Fun For Less Than Β£10 A Day!

As someone who enjoys the ‘funemployed’ life, (and is also going on holiday very soon), it can be hard to enjoy the finer things in life when you have bare-all money… In case you’re wondering what ‘funemployed’ is – it is what most actors are. Unemployed in what you want to be doing, but working […]
