Eating at.... Afternoon Tea: Creams British Luxury [Leeds]


On one of my most recent visits back to Leeds me and my mum decided to be the classy ladies we are and go out for afternoon tea. During my last trip to Leeds I had come across this place which is called 'Creams British Luxury' and it looked really lovely so we decided to go there.
They have a few different options for afternoon tea which are all interesting and I don't think I've seen this many different types before at one place. You can view the menu here.
Also their are other locations that they have throughout the UK which you can check out on their website, they also sell some of their treats online too.

Travel Bucket List


A big goal of mine is to travel to as many places as I can and see as much of this amazing world as possible. Since this is such a dream of mine (and unlikely to happen) I thought I'd create a little bucket list to show you guys which places are my favourite with a little explanation. I would love to be able to visit any of these places (and there are loads which I also didn't put on here because this post would then be ridiculously long) and hopefully in the future I will be able to cross some off of my list.

Eating at... Countrystyle Kitchen [Lancaster]


Okay sooooo I think I discovered one of my new favourite places in Lancaster.
I didn't get any pictures of the exterior because I'm not going to lie to you, the outside was really not that great looking. Even the interior wasn't fabulous, but I'm here to review the food not the aesthetics. My dad even asked if we could go elsewhere because he didn't think it looked that great.

Countrystyle Kitchen is located within a leisure park, it's slightly hidden, and has an ice cream parlour and farm shop adjoined so you can tell everything is fresh and homemade. At the front there are also some cakes and other pieces for sale to either have there or you can take away. I got a rocky road and a piece of chocolate orange (which is huge) and they're amazing!

Year Abroad Preparation - How I'm Feeling Right Now


Just as I thought things were going to hugely improve as exams are finally over and the stress of second year is no longer affecting me. I get hit with Year Abroad preparations which have definitely shook me to the core and making me wish I no longer wish I did a language degree.
So basically we've only had 1 full week of information provided thus far (so you can see that somehow this has already managed to cause me mass amounts of anxiety) and I already want to die.
Speaking of which throughout the majority of talks today they constantly brought up the potential for serious emergencies, which I understand is important and we need to know but they honestly mentioned it slightly too much to be comfortable.

Keep reading for a more detailed list of the things that are going to be my biggest stresses and why,  hopefully it may be helpful for you or at least entertaining haha.

Life Update: Second Year Finished


So second year is over which means I am over halfway through my degree.
As I am doing a 4-year course due to my year abroad working in Spain and I thought I'd update you guys with all my thoughts and reflections on second year.
Especially seeing as I did a post before about what I was expecting.

My Galentines Pancake Day 2018


I know I've been super lacking in posts recently, uni work and life has honestly just been super hectic and I know this is a little late but I still wanted to share with you however I spent my Valentines Day.
Me and a couple of girlfriends got together and decided to combine Valentines Day and pancake day for our own chill out time to make homemade pancakes.
Here I thought I'd let you know how it went and the recipe we used for our 2 different pancake mixes.

Eating at... Pizza Margherita [Lancaster]

So since I have just returned to university for term 2 me and my mum headed out for a final meal before she returned home. We decided to try a local Italian nearby which looked lovely and seemed to be getting great reviews.
From the outside it looks okay, not overly exciting although I love the little plants, although in the evening their lighting does look quite pretty.
