Last month I visited York and have already wrote a blog post about it previously. York is such a great city though that it needed to be included in this series.

Transport

York has fairly good transport networks and is easy to get to by train.

By train it is:

From London: 1 hour and 53 minutes

From Leeds: 30 minutes

From Manchester: 1 hour 18 minutes

From Edinburgh: 2 hours 24 minutes

If you are wanting to get there cheaper you can also go by bus using Megabus or National Express.

Places to Eat

Now if you’ve seen my twitter you will see that we went to the York roast Co and had a Yorkshire Pudding Wrap which was incredible and you need to try!

We also went for Dinner at The Cosy Club.

Things to do

York Minister: Is one of the largest Gothic Cathedrals in Northern Europe and is one of the most popular things to visit in York. If you have chance not only go into the cathedral climb to the top and you get a great view of York!

York Chocolate Story: Now this is something that I have never had the chance to do. I don’t know how because I love Chocolate! But it’s a guided tour though Chocolate making and about facts about York’s best Chocolate products like the Chocolate Orange and the Kitkat.

Ghost Walk: Now if you aren’t a fan of scary things or ghost then this probably isn’t for you. But it is really interesting and fun to do if you are interested in Ghosts.

The Shambles: The Shambles are great not only for the fact that it’s so beautiful and great to take photos of. There is also quite a few great shops to visit. If you are a Harry Potter fan there is the The Shop that must not be Named, my favourite The Fudge Kitchen ( Which is a must to visit) and many others.

The Shambles

There are so many other great places to visit in York like The Dungeons, The Jorvik Viking Centre, City Walls and many others.

Hopefully this has inspired you to visit York.

Next post will be Newcastle.

So August has been a pretty big month for me. This blog launched which has been so great and exciting. So I thought I would share some of my favourite things I’ve found this month.

Clothes

If you haven’t already seen me go on and on about this Dress already then where have you been! I’ve been talking about it so much on my social media and blog. It’s become my absolute favourite this month!

Beauty

Infallible foundation and NYX Eyeshadow Palette

So I tried to pick just one Beauty favourite for the month but I couldn’t. I managed to narrow it down to two though.

So first the NYX Palette. Well I am obsessed. I now wear this all the time. I am loving the warm neutrals for this Autumn too. The best thing about it was that it was only £16 too!

Now for quite some time I’ve not bought any drugstore foundations and oh have I been making a mistake! I’d heard so many good things about the Infallible foundation but I just assumed it was over hyped. But it’s not. It’s incredible. If you love full coverage foundation you need to try it!

Travel

A couple of weeks ago I spend a bit of time in York. I always forget how much I love York. The Minister, shops and oh my god the Fudge! If you’ve never been it is definitely worth the visit! If you want to read more about my trip you can here.

TV

Atypical has been my favourite show this month. Atypical is a Netflix original series about an 18 year old on the Autism Spectrum trying to seek more independence. The show is really funny. I was gutted that it was only 8 episodes!

So here you have it my favourites for August.

Last week James and I went to stay overnight in York for a mini break. I thought I would tell you about the things we got up to while we were there.

Dress: NewLook

When we got there were spent some time walking round the city. We went and walked though the Shambles. Which I love to go to every time I’m in York. If you’re a Harry Potter fan they’ve recently open a shop here which is mean’t to be great! We didn’t have time to go as the queues were huge so if that’s something you are wanting to do make sure you leave plenty of time for it. There is also so many other different shops in that area. My favourite being the Fudge Kitchen as I absolutely love fudge and always by a lot to stock up while I’m in York.

While we were walking around we found The York Roast company  who did Yorkshire pudding wraps. If you follow me on twitter or Instagram you may have already seen but they were incredible!

We also went to York Minister which is beautiful. Last time we went to York we had chance to go to the top which if you have time I recommend but we were pretty short on time this trip.

For dinner we went to The Cosy club . It was a vintage 1930’s style restaurant which had nice food and great cocktails!

The hotel we stayed it was the Hampton Hilton. The room was really lovely and we got breakfast included which is always a plus when staying in a hotel. The hotel was also really close to the train station which was really convenient for the both of us as we were both travelling by train.
