York Designer Outlet, UK

Yorkshire’s Winter Wonderland

Last weekend, I headed over to York’s Designer Outlet for the launch of their Winter Wonderland. Whilst I visit the Designer Outlet on a regular basis, I’ve never actually been to the Winter Wonderland before. I was aware that it was home to ‘The Ice Factor’ but there’s so much more to see. This year’s latest addition is the fully restored vintage funfair and of course, if you are there with little ones, you can meet Santa himself. To start of our day at the Designer Outlet, we had breakfast at Ed’s Easy Diner in the food hall before hitting up…

Christmas Day in London: Where to Eat?

Come Christmas day; most businesses will be closed. That, however, does not mean that you will not want to go out and have a little fun. In fact, I’ve been surprised to learn the amount of people who go out for their lunch on Christmas Day. Not only will you be able to have a delicious meal as prepared by a professional chef, but you also have the opportunity to try something new other than turkey meat. So, if you intend to go out on this wonderful holiday, here are restaurants open on Christmas day in London. Cinnamon Soho Cinnamon…

It’s less than a week to the big day now! That’s right, six days until Christmas Day. There’s not long left to grab those last minute gifts and to tell you the truth, I’ve still got a couple of things to pick up!

Top Picks for Christmas Decorations

With only two weeks to go until Christmas Day, have you got your Christmas Decorations up? This year, we’ve been making more of an effort with the decorations as we doing the dinner. I’ve been picking up bit’s and piece’s over the past couple of weeks, especially candles to make the living room smell like Christmas. A lot of my decorations are actually Disney themed, I think there are so many cute ornaments in the Disney Store right now and we picked up quite a few bits in Florida and over the years we’ve been to Disneyland Paris.
