Harrogate Trip


Monday was a fun filled day full of food, food and food! Me and my mum went to Harrogate for the day to have a relaxing bonding sesh. The main reason for going was to go for afternoon tea at Betty's and it certainly didn't disappoint! After arriving in Harrogate at around 11am we had a little Debenham browse before realising we were going to pass out from hunger so we went straight to Betty's. I love that place so much, words can't even describe, so every time I go in I'm always over whelmed.

The afternoon tea (which can be consumed at anytime of the day) comes with three wonderful layers:

  • Sandwiches- Egg mayonnaise, roasted ham and mustard, chicken and tarragon mayonnaise and smoked salmon with cream cheese.
  • Scone- Sultana or cheese scone with jam and clotted cream.
  • Cakes- Lemon macaroon, fruit tart and chocolate and praline mousse cake.
I think that my overall favourite layer was the sandwich layer, which is really surprising because I have a really sweet tooth, but they were just so yummy I was blown away! There's something about putting small foods on a cute stand and drinking tea which takes a whole procedure to drink that makes me so happy, and it all tastes ten times better. I will definitely be having another one of these in the near future.

The rest of the trip consisted of shopping and buying more Betty's cakes to eat later on that evening (yay for cake!). Love Harrogate!

Obsessions and why I need help

Yeah, I have serious problems. I'm one of those people who can't like something a 'normal amount', I have to become completely and utterly obsessed by it. In the past two weeks there have been two things that I have been obsessing over, Frozen and Endeavour (this is the thing, it always seems to be a something to do with TV or film.

Let's start with Frozen. It was only until yesterday that I finally saw the film and I can say that it definitely did not disappoint! But before I had chance to watch the film it was my little challenge (that I set myself) to learn all of the words to the soundtrack, and yes I succeeded. Watching this film has been at the forefront of my mind for so long that I was starting to think that the film would disappoint but that wasn't an issue. So you may think that because I've now seen the film that i'm over it and I'll move on, oh no. The next few weeks will be filled with more singing, dance moves and quotes, people of the world prepare to get annoyed!

Endeavour is an old obsession that has recently been reignited due to the start of the new series. I can't explain how much I love this programme it's just the best! I've been watching the first series before the next one so I make sure I can remember what happened for the first episode, I even bought the Radio Times the other day (which I never buy but it was really good so it may be a regular occurrence) because it had interviews with the cast. Someone help me.

All in all I quite like my obsessive stages, it's just the people around me I think that I annoy!
