For my Hen Do I decided to visit a Spa. I'd never been to one before, but I thought sticking to a traditional 'bride-to-be' stereotype was probably the easiest thing to set up. Thus the planning began and I found a local Spa located a short 15 minutes away from home.

Planning the weekend was quite an ordeal, my maid of honor had no time to book anything and so I had to take on the task myself. I found a package on their website called 'Escape' which suited our needs. It was described as '24 hours of pure relaxation'.

As the hotel & spa are two separate parts, so first I had to book 8 rooms for all of my friends and family, and then I had to ring and book everyone's individual treatments but that didn't exactly take long.

I was nervous as to what to expect as I'd never been to a Spa before. I've walked by a Sauna and had a glance in, and even witnessed my Dad having a massage but I haven't done anything like that myself. I was very curious to whether or not massages do help, and even curious to how people found sitting on a lounger for hours was relaxing to them.

The Hen Do was fabulous. The Hotel & Spa are beautifully decorated, laced with the finer details and upon entering you are greeted with the warm smell of fresh of a log pile placed nearby a real fireplace. The staff are more than friendly, and one of them even recognised me from YouTube. On the day, me and my hens embarked on the pool, relaxed with some cocktails and celebrated with some Processco.

Time came for our treatments and I decided on going with the Shoulder, Neck and Back Massage. Honestly, I didn't know what to expect and I was terrified! I was greeted with a friendly smile and taken into a room where I was told to roll my swim suit down to my lower back and lay on the bed with my head in the hole. It reminded me of all the terrible film scenes I've seen but honestly it was amazing! I chose the relaxing scented oil and laid down. The masseuse was gentle but firm and helped relieve the knots in my shoulders. Turns out working hunched over my PC has caused some issues! Instantly after the massage I felt my whole body crack with relief. I do recommend getting a massage once in a while.

The rooms were very spacious and had the facilities in them that we needed. There were twin rooms and double rooms available which were perfect for us. They included a 'living' area with sofa and coffee table, a bathroom with a bath/shower combo and a desk for makeup needs or business needs. You couldn't really ask for anything else. It met our needs, was clean and comfortable.

Later that eve, we had food in the restaurant and it was delicious. We ended the night with a gathering in my hotel room although we were a little rowdy and ended up getting a noise complaint haha. We even got my Mother and her Best Friend to play Cards Against Humanity. My Cousin fell asleep and we ended up taking photos with her exhausted body.

My Hen Do was fantastic and I kept wondering when I could have the opportunity to visit again when all of a sudden I got an email inviting me and a few friends back. I took my Cousin Fay (a Math teacher) and my Best Friend Jenna (a Geography Teacher). As we already knew the procedure, we knew what treatments we wanted. I decided to take on the massage again as last time I was told it would benefit me having it done on the regular.

We arrived at 10:30am and headed straight to the pool. They have an amazing pool and very close by is a hot tub. Also at the side of the pool is a steam room and sauna. The changing facilities are fantastic with an array of showers, cubicles and even a dressing table area complete with hair dryers and stools. You could honestly live there!

Relaxing on the loungers, drinking processco and enjoying our day of freedom was exactly how we spent the day. My back felt so much better from getting another massage and I've been told I should go back every 2 weeks until she feels it can go to once a month. It was so fun having a girly day out, we definitely deserved it!

We had a delicious lunch in the Courtyard and then went back into the pool. I did Vlog my experience so I recommend checking that out when it's posted so you can see for yourself just how beautiful the place is. You wouldn't expect such a lovely place to be tucked up hidden in an industrial estate.

All in all, my Spa experiences have been amazing and I would definitely want to make this a regular thing. It's very relaxing and is a small escape from reality. You are able to unwind mentally and physically while having some well needed 'me time'.

Thanks for reading!

Today I got invited to the Leeds Taco Bell Launch party and it was amazing! I brought with me my Husband Kyle, my Best Friend Tim, and also my Little Brother John. My friend Scott from Durham also traveled down with some fellow YouTube creators! I've always loved Taco Bell.. I tried my first one in 2015 and loved it ever since. I always hoped they would open more branches in the UK and I was lucky enough that they decided to open one in Leeds.

Apparently there was lots of demand for them to open one in Leeds via social media (I bet you, I single-handedly caused this haha!) Just kidding.. Although I did tweet @tacobelluk constantly about opening a branch close to where I live!

When arriving, the staff and PR guys handed out name tags so that we could get to know others who were attending, although I actually didn't socialise with anyone other than the group of friends that I came with.... but the idea was cool right?

The store was very modern and purple, (my favourite colour). The branch had a very classy feel to it, it did NOT feel like you were inside of a fast food restaurant. It was very clean, nicely designed and aesthetic. I know this Taco Bell will be my new place to eat whenever I visit Leeds.

The Taco Bell is opposite my favourite night club (The Key Club) so I know we will end up in there after drinking, or even before as they sell alcohol. They even sell alcoholic slushies so you can be a big 'adult' kid!

The staff came around constantly and offered us food. We started off with Nachos topped with Guac, Sour Cream and Salsa. Then we moved on to the tacos and burritos. We all tried little bits of food that came and went, I know I tried the cheesy Double Decker and also the Beefy Melt Griller. I then had Churros and chocolate dip.. they tasted the same as the ones you get at DisneyWorld. I'm so happy! I've literally been craving them since I left Florida and couldn't find an alternative in England, well now I have. #GodBlessYouTacoBell

I was worried that when the store opened that the prices would be stupidly high, but they actually aren't. They obviously do not compare to the American prices where you can pick up a Taco for around $1 but they do come pretty close. I think the cheapest item on the menu I had was £1.19, which is a steal!

The food is so delicious but also very unhealthy (EAT IN MODERATION YO!). I can see myself getting very chubby if I eat there a lot... I am actually on a diet but allowed myself to eat as many Tacos today as possible because it's not often you get invited to a launch party with FREE food. I'm just sad they didn't have my go-to item, the 'Cheesy Chicken Gordita Crunch', guess i'll settle with the Cheesy Beef Double Decker for now. I'm sure they will be bringing out the same range of food that they have in the US but I guess it takes time to perfect.

As we left the event, they gave us a tote bag full of taco related goodies which was very sweet of them. I will definitely be using my new Taco Bell Heated Travel Mug and even my Taco pen and notepad.

I am very excited to see how this store holds up in Leeds. I really hope it does well. It has lots of competition as it's directly opposite a KFC and also next to a McDonald's but I'm loving the variety of food that is coming to Leeds now, especially with the Trinity Food Market.

Thanks to @tacobelluk for inviting me, I had a blast!

Hey guys! The time for another Download Festival is fast approaching and to get me in the mood I've decided to write a Blog post about my favourite acts and what I'm excited for!

Download Festival is a rock Festival that is held yearly in Donington Park, Leicestershire. It's been going since 2003 and this will be my third year attending. Wow how time flies! The first time I attended was actually the first time i'd met my best friend in person. Listening to music and drinking helped our friendship blossom into what it is today, and now we attend as a sort of 'anniversary' you could say! It marks the very special time that we first met eye to eye, and that will forever be special in our hearts.

Download Festival has recently partnered with WWE which is amazing! We watched NXT Live last year and it was one of the best things I've ever experienced at a Festival. Wrestling and Rock Music go beautifully hand in hand.

This years lineup is amazing. I have been waiting for around 15 years to see SOAD and now is my chance. I cannot wait, I could cry with how excited I am!


My Top Picks this year are;

  • Five Finger Death Punch
  • System of a Down
  • Good Charlotte
  • Sum 41
  • State Champs
  • Creeper
  • Of Mice & Men
  • AleStorm
  • Knuckle Puck
  • Crown The Empire
  • A Day To Remember 
  • Biffy Clyro
  • Rob Zombie
  • Fizzy Blood
  • Moose Blood
  • Basement

We've learnt from previous years to print out a Clash Finder page so we know which bands we can attend and which ones we can't. The bands listed above are the ones we will definitely be seeing, I am so excited!

We also learnt to stay in a hotel rather than camp too. The weather is unpredictable at Donington and 2016 was known for it's heavy rains. This time we have booked ourselves into a local hotel and we will be driving to and from the event.

Download is something I look forward to attending every year and I always vlog my trips there purely because I enjoy it so much. If you want to watch my 2016 videos you can do so here;

Thank you for reading and I hope to see some of you there!

Slam Dunk 2017 Line Up

So Slam Dunk is fast approaching. I am attending Slam Dunk North for the third year & I'm VERY excited. The Line Up for this year is insane. Slam Dunk is an all day festival held in Leeds City Centre. Bands play across a multitude of areas, in the o2, in pubs and other various venues. It's an amazing atmosphere. 

Leeds is a beautiful City and being outside, listening to music, and drinking combined makes Slam Dunk one of the best Festivals out there. It's not just held in Leeds, there is Slam Dunk Midlands held in Birmingham, and also Slam Dunk South in Hatfield.

I find weekend Festivals quite tiring, and so a Festival that only lasts one day is perfect for someone like me.

My Favourites from the Line Up;
  • Enter Shikari
  • Bowling For Soup
  • Bear Tooth
  • Neck Deep
  • We The Kings
  • Crossfaith
  • Reel Big Fish
  • Cute Is What We Aim For

The Bands i'm seeing (CONFIRMED) are;
  • Enter Shikari
  • Bowling For Soup
  • Crossfaith
  • Reel Big Fish

The only thing that's quite upsetting is that some of my favorites clash. I'll have to miss some bands to see others and I hate when that happens, but at festivals this CANNOT be avoided. Sacrifices have to be made, and so I can't see certain bands, but I can see others! 

Going with a group of friends helps a lot. I know me and my friend group will be splitting up through out the day to see different acts at different times. I for certain will be watching Enter Shikari's Take To The Sky 10 Year Anniversary set, where as my friend Tim will want to watch his favourite band, Bowling For Soup.

I'm so excited for this, I paid the ticket price purely just to see Enter Shikari. The set is going to be AMAZING, and they're playing a personal favourite album set. I last saw them in 2012 at Leeds Festival and so I'm excited to see them again.

Hey maybe I'll even get to meet some bands this time?

Thanks for reading, and I hope to see some of you guys there!

Hey guys! As some of you may know, I'll be attending Leeds Festival again this year. Leeds & Reading are annual Festivals held in England. They are some of the best, and exciting Festivals in England, so they are must if you are a music lover like myself.

The lineup has evolved over the years. I remember attending back when it was mainly Rock and Metal music, but the change isn't necessarily bad by any means. Like any evolving Festival, you must go with what's popular at the current time. I'm super happy that there's now a mix of music genres together at the fest. 

Not only are there amazing music artists and bands attending, but there are also fantastic comedy acts going such as Bill Bailey & Lee Nelson. Since I started going to Leeds Festival, I've been a huge fan of the comedy acts they've chosen as they've all been hilarious and are a great break from bouncing around at the main-stage. 

Some bands I'm super excited to see are; Red Hot Chili Peppers, Biffy Clyro, Die Antwoord, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Two Door Cinema Club, Good Charlotte & The Wombats. ALL bands which I've never seen perform live, so as you can imagine I'm super super ready for this. From looking at the lineup, if you were going who would you see?

This year is a little different for me as I'm not actually camping there, which isn't normal for me! Every time I've gone since 2012, I've bought the cheapest tent from ASDA, Pound Shop essentials and found myself camping with a huge group. 

This time, I decided to buy Day Tickets for each day. They are incredibly cheap (in my opinion) at around £60 per day. This was a much better deal for me as I won't be camping and instead will be staying in a Hotel in Leeds City then commuting into the Festival using the Buses they have set up. We found unlimited tickets for the Buses for only £18! All in all, this festival is incredibly good value for money. 

Imagine if you were to see each artist or band perform, add up the costs of the gigs and you'd be way over the £60 that Reading & Leeds charge for a day ticket. The ticket is worth a good day out as well as the bands, and comedy acts you're seeing anyway!

When we've gone previously, we've camped in the Brown Camp, also known as the Family Camp as we found it a lot quieter and further from the main arena which means (if you're worried) that all your belongings are much safer. Although, I've never actually heard of anyone being mugged, or stolen from at Leeds. If you're going, I definitely recommend staying in a camp such as Brown, as other camps like Red can be loud way into the early hours. You'll be needing your rest if you're wanting to party all day!

I'm making sure to pack one, or two rain coats as the weather can be incredibly bipolar in Leeds, it can go from being boiling hot, to raining within seconds. So if your'e going make sure to do the same!

If you're going, I hope to see you there. If not you can catch the highlights over the weekend on BBC TV or Radio.
Hey guys, I just wanted to write this blog post about my newest merchandise design. I wanted something of Sonic as he's become kind of my 'channel mascot' in a way. He is adorable and unique and I think that's why people really love him. I found a design online called 'Pocket Toothless' and it was of Toothless from How To Train Your Dragon and I instantly fell in love with it!

I decided from this that I wanted my new T-Shirt design to be pretty similar using the whole pocket theme because you have to admit, it's adorable. I also wanted my design to not feature anything to do with my channel so that anyone and everyone could wear and buy one and it wouldn't have specific branding on it, this way it would appeal to more people. I contacted the original artist from the Pocket Toothless design and found he was from Manchester, so he was super local and it's always great to support fellow artists, whether music, art, or content creating we all need to support each other. I was happy to see he accepted commissions and I sent him my sketch idea. Within a week he had the design back to me and I was so happy with the price, how fast he delivered, and the quality of the design.

So this is the final design of 'Pocket Hedgehog'. Isn't it cute? I used redbubble to sell my merchandise and I tried to put it on everything I could including iPad cases, Phone Cases, Shirts, Posters and many many more. I've even ordered myself a couple of these shirts because they are amazing. I think wearing them at conventions will definitely help!

I decided to use redbubble because it was the cheapest site for fans/viewers/subscribers to buy from, and that's all I really care about. They post worldwide which is great too, and not only that but redbubble also have constant discount codes so people can get my merchandise even cheaper if they look out for the codes! redbubble are also known in the YouTube community and often host giveaways on YouTuber's channels, I know a couple of my friends including Lauren, Vixella and Annie have all been a part of their campaigns. They've even asked me to do one but I haven't got around to sorting it out yet!

Today I bought myself the female shirt design in size M, it came to around £20 as I couldn't find a discount code, but atleast I got £2 from sales on it, so it only cost me £18 I guess haha. I really love the grey colour of this, then again most of the clothing I wear is grey.

Anyway, hope you enjoyed reading this.
Peace out, xox
