York, Yorkshire

These were taken on a day trip to York when Thomas and I took a long stroll along the York City Walls. It was impressive how sturdy and intact everything was given that small parts of it was built from as early as 71AD - that's during the Roman times!

Yard & Coop, NQ

This was so, so good I finished it even though this was their large plate. Don't let the photo deceive you... their large plate portion is truly, LARGE. The flavour combination in this dish was absolutely perfect and the fries were crispy - just how I like it.

Teacup Kitchen, NQ

I've been here once or twice before this meal and I've always had a pretty great experience BUT for this particular breakfast... it wasn't at all satisfying. We waited for a pretty long time before our food arrived (we got there around 9ish so it wasn't at all crowded just yet) and when it did arrive, my food was not seasoned AND I had soggy toast!

TGIF

Weekly catch-up: I've had a pretty great week so far. Yes, I'll admit it's been hella tiring but I think adult life is supposed to be this hard...? 🤷🏻‍♀️

Jerk Shack, NQ

Me and Fristi got the same thing and honestly... this was the bomb.com!! The mutton was super tender and full of juicy goodness. And the coleslaw was absolutely out of this world - I did not know coleslaw could taste that good!

Porter + Cole, NQ

Located on the ground floor of One Smithfield Square, Porter + Cole is Northern Quarter's newest coffee lounge/design store. They have one of the best interior decoration I have seen so far in NQ - I am completely obsessed!

Stonehenge

Visited the UNESCO heritage site a couple of months back with Tom and his family. Located at Salisbury, the place is absolutely breathtaking. Did you know that up until very recently, you could still walk up to the stones and touch it?

Starting fresh 🌱

Tbh, between finishing my BA and starting an MA... I ditched the blog. And honestly, it bothered me that my once prized blog was abandoned and put aside in favour of academia but I guess that happens.
