Blue Sakura|All You Can Eat Review|Leeds

When I was very kindly asked to come along to try an all you can eat style buffet at Blue Sakura Leeds I was to be honest a little dubious… Why? I just don’t like Sushi. Or so I thought!

Let’s start by saying, Blue Sakura is different. Different in a good way! It’s an all-you-can-eat buffet serving Japanese sushi and options from an asian style grill but the difference is you order everything from an ipad! Apparently this is very popular in Japan but completely new to Leeds! (and me).

Rudding Park Luxury Hotel & Spa|Travel|Harrogate

Ok so let me start of by saying I have been lucky enough to visit a number of spas in the last few years. However, i’ve never experienced anywhere quite like this…

Rudding Park Spa soars high above all expectations, so much so that even the 5 star reviews I was reading through before I arrived (I have a habit of doing that) didn’t actually do it justice. This place is a pure delight. In short, it’s gorgeous, the staff are world-class, it’s ridiculously clean and the facilities they have are the best I’ve ever , EVER, experienced!

“It’s Easy Being A Social Media Influencer”|My Story, Told Honestly|Leeds

Tom Sheard - Social Media Influencer. Instagram

“It’s easy being a Social Influencer”, ” I could do that”, “Anybody can just take a picture and upload it to instagram”, “Influencers are just freeloaders!”.

Ok, so some of that it true. Yes, you could do it yourself and yes anybody can take a photo and upload it to Instagram. The thing is, that isn’t the point, and it’s not why i’m writing this either. Time and time again I am hearing the same things from people who just don’t understand what it takes to create worthwhile content and the commitment that is needed to become a successful influencer. This isn’t really a how to guide, but it’s something I’d like to discuss honestly delving into some of what goes on behind the camera.

ODDFellows|Hotel & Spa Review|Chester

All it took was a short journey west on the M62 winding up and through the Pennines and we had arrived. Oddfellows on the Park is a luxury boutique hotel and spa situated in the middle of a park in Chester and I couldn’t wait to stay!

The team at Oddfellows had very kindly invited me over for an extravagant night’s sleep to showcase everything the hotel had to offer. I’ve actually been needing a relaxing trip away so this came at the perfect time and I jumped at the offer.
