Emmerdale Studio Experience 

This week I turned 30 and since I remember Emmerdale has always been apart of my life. My grandma & grandad used to watch it every week back in the day when I stayed over I couldn’t wait to turn off the lights, sit with my cocoa and wait for it to start. Now I have my own family even though my children are young aged 3 & 1 they do enjoy Emmerdale. Don’t get me wrong they are normally tucked up in bed by then, but when it’s on they do watch the telly! They may not understand the storylines but I think it’s all the drama, colours and as it’s from Yorkshire they recognise the accents & of course the theme tune! Where: Emmerdale Studio Experience Postcode: LS3 1JT Total Price: £21pp (10.00am early bird available which includes breakfast) Under 5’s FREE Car Park: Yes available directly opposite the…

Chocolate Beauty Spa – Garforth 

As a chocolate lover…. when I heard about the Chocolate Beauty Spa In Garforth, Leeds, I just had to book an appointment…. yes just because of the name! I decided that as my eyebrows now looked that bad I had started to tell people I was growing them until one day a friend said I think you have grown them enough now! So I thought I’d try out to HD Brows & a Back Massage, After all who doesn’t love or need one! As you drive up Main Street in Garforth there are quite a few small Beauty salons but none of them particularly stood out, they were either really small,closed or didn’t seem inviting. I know the saying you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover but I do find that saying difficult sometimes when trying somewhere new. Chocolate Beauty Spa is right at the top of Main Street,…
