A Cocktail Masterclass At Jalou York

 Cocktail Masterclass At Jalou York

I’ve been a frequent visitor of Jalou York over the past year or so since it opened, and I was a regular visitor of the establishment when it was known as Parish (£1 Jäger bombs, where you at?!).

The atmosphere at Jalou is something that I’ve always loved as it’s always so happy, vibrant and bubbly; quite like the members of staff who hold the place together!

Last Friday night I was invited along to a cocktail masterclass at Jalou York and I wanted to share all the reasons why you should attend one too!

A Delicious Lunch At Humpit Hummus – Places To Eat In York

humpit hummus

A few days ago, Matt and I were invited to the recently opened branch of Humpit Hummus in York to try out their range of delicious vegan hummus and pita offerings.

I have to admit, I was a tad apprehensive as I’ve never really dabbled in vegan food, or even hummus for that matter but as soon as I looked at the menu, I knew it was something I really wanted to try out. Matt’s actually trying out a vegan lifestyle at the moment so he was already really intrigued to see what they had to offer.

Here’s what we had for a delicious lunch at Humpit Hummus last Saturday.

The European Landmarks I’m Looking Forward To Seeing

European Landmarks

For many years, I never really considered many places in Europe as desirable destinations; I always thought I wanted to visit places like America, Bali and Australia, and while I obviously still do want to visit these places, there’s also a number of places in Europe that’ve made their way to the top of my travel wishlist.

I’ve been lucky enough to visit numerous beautiful countries in Europe but there’s still so much I’m yet to see and do, and one of these things is the magnificent landmarks located throughout Europe.

I’ve compiled a list of the European landmarks I’m most looking forward to seeing; whether that’s next year on our travels or just on holiday at some point in the future.

An Afternoon At York Dungeon – Review

York Dungeon

Remember the deliciously hot bank holiday weekend we had a few weeks ago – the one where the sun was beautifully hot and the whole of the UK went into meltdown, stocking up on BBQ essentials, refreshing cider and suncream aplenty?

Well, that was also the weekend Matt and I decided to pay a visit to the York Dungeon. Probably not the best idea considering it was sweltering hot outside but we’d both never visited the Dungeons before and we really couldn’t wait to see what it was all about!

I don’t want to give too much away but here’s pretty much what you can expect from an afternoon at York Dungeon.

Skincare Essentials For A Weekend Away*

Travel Essentials For A Week In The Sun

You all know by now just how much I love a good weekend away and whether it’s a weekend away in the sun or just a night away in Leeds for example, there’s a few essentials that I like to take with me.

Skincare is probably my favourite beauty ~thing~ so it’s fair to say that I have quite a few skincare products stashed away at home, all ready to come away with me.

There’s a mixture of products here, all with different purposes and price ranges. Here’s some of my skincare essentials for a weekend away.
