Danby, North York Moors Break

In the month of June my family & I went for a break in the countryside. We stayed at a wonderful cottage. We were lucky with the weather and had some fantastic barbeques and summer salads.

I really enjoyed doing nothing much. Reading magazines, taking photos, having nice meals and playing tennis were all on the agenda. We also visited the Danby Moors Centre where we looked round the art gallery and had a snack in the cafe.

I had a look round the local health shop where they stock makeup, beauty and organic food. I loved browsing the shelves and picking out treats to take home with me. My previous blog post includes items I bought. I also bought some mini chocolates for friends souvenirs.

The cottage we stayed at with lovely and scenic. They kept horses and other farm animals which were great for taking photos. In the evenings we watched films together and I read a book I had taken with me called FanGirl by Rainbow Rowell.

It was nice to spend time with family and have a chill out. Overall the holiday was really nice. I recommend quite countryside breaks to anyone, there great for unwinding and relaxing.

Have you been anywhere nice over the summer? Did you like my holiday snaps? Xx

Holiday Danby Health Shop Haul

Pukka Elderberry & Echinacea with Elderflower tea £2.39 (buy)

Faith In Nature Grapefruit & Orange Shower Gel & Foam Bath £5.60 (buy)

Faith In Nature 3-in-1 Facial Wipes (25pk) £3.25 (buy)

All the items here are purchased from a Health Shop in Danby, North York Moors. It’s a lovely little shop with very helpful and friendly staff. We go every year to stay in a cottage in Danby and the health shop isn’t too far away.

I will be doing a separate blogpost on my holiday. This blogpost is a quick show and tell of what I bought. Full reviews coming up in the near future.

I have been really getting into trying different teas. The ladies at the health shop gave me a bag of samples and these included tea bag samples as well as beauty samples. I was so chuffed with this, and it all came in a tote bag too!

I picked out a elderberry tea as this sounded lovely. So far I am delighted with it, it tastes so good! The shower gel I bought is such a sharp citrus scent and wakes me up in the shower. The Faith in Nature wipes have come in handy and they are so gentle on the skin.

Do you like what I've bought? Have you tried fruit tea before?

Weekend Away & Miley Cyrus Concert (Leeds/York)

Todays post is about my weekend in Leeds to see Mileys bangerz concert in May. I had an ace time with my good friend Emzie. On the first day we travelled by coach up to leeds and had an hour or so in the centre shopping. We had a look in Leeds Trinity shopping centre some of the shops include Victorias Secret, River Island, Topshop, Primark etc

Then we headed to the hotel to have tea and get ready for the concert. We were very impressed with the hotel food, it was all inclusive. We had a three course meal including homemade soup, sausage casserole and chocolate cake. We had a cooked breakfast too!

After that we got changed and headed to the concert on the coach. I had never been in Leeds Arena, we got quite good seats on the balcony. Mileys performances were really fab, she went all out with the costumes, staging too. We really enjoyed it.

Day two we left the hotel and visited York for the day. We went round the shops. Em loved the american sweet shop and I enjoyed looking round the fashion shops such as Zara, River Island and H&M.

I bought a beautiful tunic from Zara in a mint green colour. I also picked up the new Escada perfume and with it came lots of samples and a makeup bag.

Overall I had a top weekend. The atmosphere on the coach was good, really friendly and the package deal we got for the trip was great value too.

Have you been to any concert trips or weekends away lately? Would love to hear about them!

Zara Tunic In Mint Green £39.99

Escada Born In Paradise EDT 30ml £24.50
