Things I Want To Do Next Time I’m In New York

I’m so incredibly lucky to have been to New York three times now, and yet I always leave wanting more. It’s my absolute favourite city in the entire world and I can’t even begin to explain how much it means to me.

Despite my three different adventures in the Big Apple, there’s still so much of the city I haven’t yet seen.

So that’s what today’s post is all about; my bucket list of the things I want to do next time I’m in New York.

Films To Watch To Inspire Your Travels

Films To Watch To Inspire Your Travels

For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved watching all kinds of movies; whether it’s a rom-com, action film, or more recently, films in the thriller genre, I can happily sit and watch anything.

But, if there’s one thing I love about watching movies, it’s learning something and being inspired; especially movies that inspire my travels. There’s so many films that I’ve been inspired by in the last few years, and they’ve all encouraged me to visit a plethora of places around the world.

So here’s my list of films to watch to inspire your travels.

York’s Chocolate Story – Things To Do In York

York's Chocolate Story

I think if I had to choose between sweet or savoury foods, I’d go with savoury every time; give me garlic bread, crisps and some sausage rolls and I’ll be the first to bite your hand off at the beige goodness.

However, I do have a particular penchant for chocolate, especially if it’s orange flavoured. So when the lovely team at York’s Chocolate Story invited me along to experience their York attraction, I couldn’t wait to see what it was all about.

Despite the attraction being open for a number of years now, I’d never actually paid it a visit, until last Friday when Matt and I both had the day off work and we decided to pop down and take a tour. Here’s what you can expect from York’s Chocolate Story.

Love Actually & Rom-Com London Tour With Brit Movie Tours

My favourite type of movie is without a doubt one that belongs in the Rom-Com genre, so when I was invited down to London to check out Brit Movie Tours’ Rom-Com London tour, I was more than thrilled!

Films such as Love Actually, Notting Hill and Bridget Jones are some of my favourite ever films so when I discovered that Brit Movie Tours offered a tour all about the various locations where some of my fave films were shot, I couldn’t wait to see it for myself!

I took my mum with me as she’s also a huge fan of Rom-Coms, so we stayed in a hotel in Kensington the night before and on Saturday we made our way to the tour. Here’s what we got up to on the Love Actually & Rom-Com London tour.

Why Date Night Doesn’t Just Have To Be With Your Partner

Why Date Night Doesn't Just Have To Be With Your Partner

I’ve spoken quite a lot about my love for date night on my blog before and how much I love to spend some quality time with Matt. It always makes me so happy to be able to enjoy a good few hours delighting in each other’s company, talking about everything and anything.

However, I also firmly believe that in order to enjoy ‘date night’, you don’t necessarily have to spend it with your partner. I class ‘date night’ as time spent by myself watching Friends and drinking a delicious hot chocolate, catching up with friends who I haven’t seen in a long time or spending time with my amazing mum in a stunning London hotel…

Here’s why date night doesn’t just have to be with your partner, and what myself and my mum got up to on our ‘date night’ last week!
