    May 24, 2018

    Some people have all the luck when it comes to love, some people have it when it comes to career opportunities, and some (like me) have the luck when it comes to Facebook competitions. I think I have now won 4 Facebook competitions in my life – you know, the ones where you like and…

  • Celebrating Eurovision With Sarah Barrow Make Up

    May 15, 2018

    I’ve never had my make-up done before. I’m a person who just throws generic make up on my face and heads out (aint nobody got time for contouring). But when make-up artist, Sarah Barrow, offered to do my make-up for me, I jumped at the chance. Having worked in London as a make-up artist, and…

  • Give Me Caffeine | The Best Café’s In Knaresborough

    May 4, 2018

    When my grandma asked me what the high street in Knaresborough was like these days, my response was simple. “If you need your hair doing, a cup of tea or a new filter for your vape, then Knaresborough’s got it covered.” And while my observation is pretty spot on, Knaresborough is especially good for relaxing…

    It may be only 5 degrees, but at least the sun is out this morning, so QUICK! RUN FOR A BEER GARDEN! We all got teased with the promise of a nice spring and summer with 27 degree weather last week, but it was washed away by rain as quickly as it appeared. So obviously,…

  • How To Make The Most Of Your Snow Day

    February 28, 2018

    Remember how when we were school kids we used to pray for it to be a snow day as soon as a fleck of snow squeezed from the sky? Well it doesn’t matter how old we get, we still want the same thing; everybody wants a snow day! Snow days are a surprise day off…

  • My Camping Weekend At Knights Stainforth

    September 25, 2017

    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

    September 8, 2017

    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

    August 23, 2017

    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.) Before the humdrum of going back to school again, send the summer holidays out with a bang, or a nice day out! Here are some…

  • Leeds Gin Festival 2017

    July 4, 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! Some of my funnest social occasions have been when alcohol is involved – sorry you sticklers out there, I have more fun with alcohol! And Saturday…

  • 6 Things To Do In 6 Months

    July 3, 2017

    Well, I’m baaaaack! Back home. Back in the U.K. Back in Yorkshire. Back in my favourite place in the world. Even though I’ve lived in several places, and explored many countries, there’s no place like home. As I have returned with half of the year already gone, I figured I would get excited for all the…

  • Tea Time At Mama Doreen’s

    May 7, 2017

    As I’m leaving the country at the end of the week, my time is currently spent doing a mixture of packing, panicking, and squeezing in goodbye’s with all my friends and family… So a fitting ‘see ya real soon’ with my friend Lucie (who owns Destination Beauty in Harrogate), who is always dressed in the…

  • A Weekend In Northumberland

    May 3, 2017

    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

    May 3, 2017

    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

    April 30, 2017

    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…

    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…

  • Tips For A Perfect Walk By Knaresborough Riverside

    April 24, 2017

    It is well known that the moment the sun comes out in Britain, so do the crop tops, shirtless men and ‘Jesus sandles’. And in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire, you will find most of these people congregated by the riverside. Including myself. The reason why Knaresborough riverside is the perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon…
