A HOT AIR BALLOON ADVENTURE

A HOT AIR BALLOON ADVENTURE

This summer I experienced something incredibly surreal! You may have watched my live Insta, and if you did you would have seen I partook in an amazing activity. Something my mum has always wanted to tick off her bucket list! Yep, that’s right at 6am we floated off in a hot air balloon! I was lucky enough last year to win a virgin experience voucher, and so I decided to get in the brownie points and gift my mum with a trip for multiple Birthdays and Christmases – dam I just figured…

#EXPLORINGCHESHIRE WITH LAURUS HOMES *

As you may know by know I live in the powerhouse of the North, the city that’s home to infamous bands, historical figures and premiere league football clubs. However, I wasn’t born into a cosmopolitan lifestyle, in fact I’m a country bumpkin that hails from a picturesque part of the Lake District! One reason I chose to make Manchester my home is the versatility this area offers – you may have cracking nightlife and fabulous restaurants, however stray a little further and I’m back to green lands, still waters and…

A TRIP TO KNOWSLEY SAFARI PARK WITH TYRE PLUS *

Over the weekend, my bestie and I went to go spend a weekend on the outskirts of Liverpool. As you could see from my Instagram, we had luscious massages, a trip to Knowsley safari park and was plied with rum! I don’t think you could have asked for a better weekend really. I have only ever experienced a safari park once, that was when I was living in Africa as a child and we actually had to drive through one monthly. Yes, insane right?! Our regular bus went cruising on…

GOODWOOD RACES LADIES DAY

GOODWOOD RACES LADIES DAY

Last year my partner won the most incredible prize. A trip to Goodwood races on ladies day. I have never been a big goer on horse racing. Apart from on my Birthday, we always make a cheeky bet on The Grand National, in memory of my grandad. Therefore the opportunity to head to one of these prestigious events, was pretty much once in a lifetime. A once in a lifetime event it most certainly was. Everything was covered and paid for by Dove all down to a tee. We got…

YORKSHIRE SCULPTURE PARK – REVIEW

YORKSHIRE SCULPTURE PARK – REVIEW

For years now my mum has been insisting that I go and check out Yorkshire Sculpture Park. I also had a friend that used to work there also who non stopped raved about it! Yet you know me stubborn and all that – I did not listen. Oh boy was I wrong to leave it so late. Mum – You were right I am sorry (savour those words) My visit was not totally spontaneous, as I had noticed a DREAM job opportunity to arise. I mean these rarely come around….

HAWESWATER HOTEL – LAKE DISTRICT REVIEW

HAWESWATER HOTEL – LAKE DISTRICT REVIEW

Earlier this week it was my mum’s birthday, so we thought it would be nice to spend it up at my nana’s in the District all together. Fortunately for her the sun was shining and it was lovely and hot. This is when the Lake District is at its best. My nana doesnt live too far away from Haweswater, a huge reservoir that provides all the water to Manchester. The reservoir has a lot of controversial history, as where the water lies now, there used to lie the village of Mardale….
