My Original City Adventure in York: Part One!

I was recently invited to experience a thrill-seeking adventure in York. I took my friend Becca who’s from Derby along on the trip and she had never visited York before. York is basically my second home as it’s my closest City. I used to go to college there so I was pretty excited to show her around. Visit York had kindly given us a York Pass which gives you access to over 30 attractions across the city. It’s safe to say, Becca fell in love with York pretty much straight away. Who could blame her? It’s one beautiful city! After…

Brunch at Badger & Co, Edinburgh

One thing is for sure about my recent trip to Scotland was that I didn’t stop eating. I was truly in food heaven. On our second day in Edinburgh, Charlotte and I visited a place called Badger & Co for Brunch which is located in the prime Shopping District between George Street and Princess Street on Castle Street. After reading up online that this is the former home of Kenneth Grahame, the author of Wind in the Willows. I knew I had to go. The breakfast menu offered a variety of items from the blogger’s favourite Avocado on Toast to The…

Build Your Own Birchbox at Selfridges, London

On my recent trip to London, I was determined to visit the mothership that is Selfridges. I’d seen online that Birchbox has opened their own pop-up stand until the end of December and I was desperate to visit. Located downstairs in the Beauty Workshop, you can build your own Birchbox for £15. I was given a “menu” of products which would be available. I actually ended up visiting Selfridges on two different days and there were different products to choose from each day. I’m not too sure how often they switch things up but I’m happy with what I picked…

Scotchtails, Borough Market

It’s hard to believe that a stall selling scotch eggs would cause so much hype. I visited Borough Market last week with my Grandma and what I did notice was the amount of people all feasting on scotch eggs. I’d read about Scotchtails on the CitizenMag and seen as my Grandma had never been to (or even heard of it) Borough Market we decided to head on over there for a spot of lunch. The special of the day at Scotchtails was Black Pudding but as I’m not a fan I opted for the traditional pork & herb with salad for…

Creating the Dream Magnum

Cooking or baking blog posts are very rare on my blog, just because I’m not the best at it. The last time I attempted to bake, the kitchen was nearly on fire. The feeble attempt at making cookies ended up in the garden to cool off as they were burnt so badly. Oops! Basically what I’m saying is that I’m in no way a domestic goddess in the kitchen. I’ve teamed up with Magnum to create the easiest dream dessert which even I can make! You might have seen that over the Summer, Magnum opened the doors to their own…
