Cayton Bay, what I thought was a tiny cover nestled in between Scarborough and Filey, turned out to be a gorgeous wide expanse of sand that was more gorgeous that I could ever have imagined. I’d heard about this place from several people, mainly those crazy cold water surfers that popped into the old O’Neill shop I used to work… View Post

When Expedia invited me and Beverley to go and check out Wakefield’s Rhubarb Festival, I couldn’t say no. I grew up near Wakefield. It’s somewhere I hung around a lot as a kid and the Rhubarb Festival is always an event in the diary that everyone talks about, you know, with Wakefield being part of The Rhubarb Triangle and all.… View Post

The other week, you might remember that I went to Lincoln for a day out with my sisters. Well, we spent most of the day hopping from café to café but the one place that we all fell in love with a little was The Cheese Society. I mentioned it briefly in my Life Lately post but I really need… View Post

It’s not often I spend a day of my weekend in Leeds. I mean sure, I’ll be around my flat but I hardly go into the city to mooch around or to go to an event. However, on Saturday, Beverley and I wandered up to the beautiful Leeds Corn Exchange to get our rum on at Leeds Rum Festival and… View Post

Dare I say it? Will you guys hate me if I mention it? Ah, I’m going to do it anyway. Christmas is nearly here! That’s right, I went there. I know it’s not even Halloween yet but the most festive time of year is fast approaching and it’s time to start getting prepared. But, I’m not talking about presents, or… View Post

Wow, September was a whirlwind, an unexpected whirlwind month. It included a surprise trip to Hong Kong, my 28th birthday, a sunny day in London and some much needed time off work. So my surprise trip to Hong Kong, that was crazy. I won a return flight with Cathay Pacific to one of my favourite places on earth and it… View Post
