The Hotel Chocolat School Of Chocolate at Roast+Conch, Leeds


It's not often I'm invited to events that we can actually get to and so when Hotel Chocolat got in touch and asked if T, C and I would like to visit their Roast+Conch branch in Leeds City Centre, I knew we could move things around to pay a visit. I mean, Hotel Chocolat is the type of chocolate I dream about, so I couldn't say no, could I!

The boys were invited to the Hotel Chocolat children's chocolate workshop in their School of Chocolate. (J was too young as the workshop is suitable for children aged between 5 to 13 years). The entertaining Children's Chocolate Workshops are a really fun way to learn about cocoa and chocolate.

Starting The Great Christmas Wrap

I seriously cannot believe we are only 2 month away from Christmas. This year seems to have flown by. I can still remember sitting down, around this time last year, and wrapping all the presents before trying to find places to hide them until Christmas Eve.

As a person who loves Christmas, I also enjoy anything to do with it too. Wrapping presents if one of my favourite things to do. In fact, last year I even wrapped my mums presents for her as I just love doing them so much.

Stoptober - Can You Quit Smoking For One Month?

Smoking... It's something that people used to find 'cool' and I'm sure almost everybody has tried it at least once. As we are well aware now though, smoking is not cool. Smoking is harmful, very harmful.

Every year I see Stoptober come by and see how much this one month can help so many people. In fact, more than 1 million people have quit thanks to Stoptober, and that's amazing!

BakerLou, Turning 30 and The Impractical Jokers!

I'm not usually one to celebrate my birthday but last week I turned 30 and I decided to treat myself a little bit. You see, I'd been following BakerLou for ages now and had been loving to look of her cakes. So earlier in the year I commissioned her to make my very own 30th Birthday cake. 

After many messages and choices, we'd agreed on a chocolate cake with a coffee cream and Malteasers as a topper on it. I couldn't wait! In fact, I order it so long ago that it just seemed to take forever for my birthday to come around. 


The Best Sightseeing Places To Visit In Majorca

If you've never visited Majorca then you really are in for a surprise when you get these. Majorca isn't just a Spanish holiday place - it's known for beach resorts, sheltered coves, limestone mountains and Roman and Moorish remains. 

Although you can go there for the sun, the sand and the sangria, it is more than just a holiday destination. It might just be a small island in the Med but the sights here are some of the most stunning I have seen.
