York

 

Hey there!
I arrived back to London Sunday afternoon after a fantastic weekend away in York. Oh my goodness it is so pretty there, I want to back again immediately!! On Saturday we explored the city, there were so many gorgeous buildings and streets that I was stopping to snap a shot every 10 steps or so. I loved the Shambles, it reminded me of Diagon Alley from the Harry Potter movies, there so many quirky buildings and shop fronts brimming with character and of course the gorgeous cobbled streets.

After lots of drinks and dancing on Saturday night we had a very civilised start to Sunday morning with a delicious breakfast in Betty’s. It was recommended for us to visit, and clearly most of the other visitors to York had received the same advise judging by the queue there was to get in on Saturday afternoon! We were luckier yesterday though and there was a table for 5 free when we arrived. My sweet tooth struck again and I was the only one to opt for a sweet breakfast! I had the French toast with honey and cinnamon which was yummy.

I’m looking forward to baking some treats inspired by my trip up north. Keep an eye on my Instagram, Twitter or Facebook page for updates! 🙂
