Well, I said that March had gone fast, but my goodness...April has been speedy! I was lucky enough to have a little bit of time off work in April, so I'm thinking that's probably why it has gone so fast for me but, whoa...where is this year going?? I'm not the only one thinking it's going too … Continue reading April Favourites // Extras.
I had the most incredible birthday this year! (Thursday 20th April) I had originally planned on going to York for the day, as it is one of my absolute favourite places. I will never get bored of all the lovely things York has to offer. However, the only problem with York - is the parking. It's difficult to … Continue reading Ripon & its Rich History.
Seen as though it's a bank holiday, I've been reminiscing about all the lovely times I've spent at 'Golden Acre Park', this weekend. We usually always have a drive up there at some point on a bank holiday weekend, to go for a walk, and a cup of tea in the café...but we haven't this time! … Continue reading Nature & Magic // Golden Acre Park.
A couple of years ago, I had a unique opportunity to go work at Castle Howard with the rest of my college class, for an outdoors theatre production of 'Alice in Wonderland'. I was studying Drama, but as we were one of the younger classes, this was a chance for us to gain some experience by … Continue reading Castle Howard // York.

I'm not sure if this is something I'll do every month, or whether it will just be every now and … Continue reading March Favourites // Extras.

We more or less had three days of constant rain, and considering how nice it was the week before, it was a little bit disheartening. However, the rain did eventually stop and by Thursday it was bright, and sunny again. I have to … Continue reading Mother’s Day Weekend & Vegan Cookies.
It's been almost a whole year since my last holiday in Lanzarote, and I still miss it! I was looking through some of my pictures today and thought that I would share some of my favourites. Don't worry, I'm not going to bore you with all my family pictures, and all the copious amounts of … Continue reading Puerto Del Carmen // Lanzarote.
I discovered the beautiful East Riddlesden Hall last year on a whim, and it didn't disappoint! As a history lover, I love to visit old houses, castles, and landmarks. I also love gardens and flowers (as you might have gathered by my previous blog posts!), so in my eyes anywhere that has these features, is a win. But … Continue reading East Riddlesden Hall // Keighley.
There was absolutely no way I was going to waste the beautiful weather today, so I decided to go pick up some coffee & go on a little wander along the way. I was originally planning on going through the woods by my house, but I saw the mud after last nights rain fall, and decided … Continue reading Sunshine & Blossom.
I'm very lucky to be able to say that Kirkstall Abbey is practically on my doorstep. Not only have a grown up visiting the abbey, but I often walk/pass through the grounds. After a week of rain, the sun finally shone today, and it was just wonderful. So on my way to do a bit of shopping, … Continue reading Kirkstall Abbey is Blooming…
