Eating out - Slate NQ

A little while ago I attended the opening party of Slate NQ.  There seems to be so many new bars and restaurants popping in the Leeds city centre Northern Quarter, this part of town is really up and coming! Slate NQ is definitely a great addition to the area.

I was delighted to be invited to come back and try the full Slate experience of cocktails, food and pool. Of course I couldn't say no, especially when it sounded like the perfect date night combination.

Feeling The Summer - Flowery Kimono

Summer is almost over and in all honesty, it feels to me like it didn't even happen. We've not had that many warm sunny days and the majority of the ones we did have I spent at work, in an office. 

Since I have finished university two years ago time seems to absolutely fly and every sunny weekend feels precious. Before we know it, we'll be walking around in woolly jumpers and scarfs again.

I was so happy when we finally got some heat and sunshine over the weekend. I had a friend visiting and we spent the day exploring Roundhay Park  and soaking up the sun. I decided to embrace perhaps this last strech of summer weather with one of my favourite outfits. My flowery kimono which I've found on ebay! 


Almost Famous Leeds #FamousNewMenu

Since Almost Famous opened in Leeds last year I have heard only good things about the restaurant. So many of my facebook friends have praised it time and time again. Unfortunately, I had never got round to visiting yet ( I know I can' believe it myself!) so when I was invited to taste their new menu I got very very excited! A fantastic opportunity to taste the glorious burgers. It's like it was just meant to be.

First thing first, before I even got to any of the food I was already impressed. Their restaurant decor is so funky, and quite frankly not like anything I've seen before. It's quite dark and atmospheric but there's also lots of colour everywhere and quirky wall art.

Cryotherapy Treatment Pt 1

Recently I saw a tweet from @xshair stating that they were looking for bloggers to review their cryotherapy treatment. My first reaction was to google what the hell was cryotherapy?! I had never heard of it before.

Basically cryotherapy is a liquid nitrogen vapour treatment which reaches below
-160°C, in order to trigger a physiological reaction to cold temperatures.

Life Update | Exciting News

Some of you may have noticed that for about two months I hadn't blogged very much at all.

The reason for that being is that I've been so crazy busy!

One bit of very exciting news is that I now have a BABY BROTHER!!

I'm 23 and I have a baby brother, seems crazy! He is absolutely adorable, so much so that I booked impulse flights back home and flew over to meet him a couple of weeks ago. I couldn't believe how tiny he was! I can't wait to fly back to Northern Ireland and see him again at the end of the month. This now makes me a big sister to four siblings.
I wonder where our parents going to fit us all at Christmas time in about ten years when we have kids of our own?!


Food | Mojo Bar New Menu Launch

Most of my nights out in Leeds end in Mojo Bar. Often dancing on tables until early hours in the morning to the rolling stones or other rock and roll classics, before making my way to the take away for some bed time cheesy chips. Such is the lifestyle of a 23 year old.
So you can imagine my delight and excitement when SLP PR emailed me to invite me to Mojo Food Launch menu tasting. My first reaction was - Whaaaat they do food there?! My second reaction was - I'm seriously definitely going!

It was really quite bizarre seeing Mojo's in daylight. It's much more colourful than I imagined! It also definitely has a very American vibe, which of course their food menu reflects also.

Food at The New Conservatory Leeds

When the lovely bunch from Pink Gorilla invited to sample the new summer menu at The New Conservatory in Leeds I simply couldn't say no.
Any event which involves food is usually a yes from me, what can I say, I love to eat!

Although I have walked past the New Conservatory many times I've never actually made my way inside, so I was really excited to pay it a visit and to taste their menu. Naturally the boy, who also adores food was delighted to be my plus 1.
