York is such a beautiful, historically rich City in my home county Yorkshire. If you have never been to York before I strongly urge you to go; it's particularly magical on the approach to Christmas, if not bitterly cold.
I visited York this weekend for a spot of Christmas shopping and, quite frankly, a bit of boozing and dining! My York highlights? Rosie Muggles is my dream shop, all dazzling dresses, costume jewellery and cute little trinkets. Guy Fawkes Inn is an amazing old fashioned British pub, a great experience, especially for overseas visitors. We dined at Cafe Rouge, a chain that delivers a unique French atmosphere whilst serving classics such a beef bourginon, onion soup etc.
I found this ornate copy of my favourite novel, Oscar Wilde's 'The Picture of Dorian Gray', in a York bookstore. Christmas wishlist? I think so.
York aside, it was a perfect weekend to be home from Uni-Christmas decorating!!
I instagrammed this pic of the Christmas tree (follow me @tashagr94); sorry it's not of better quality, I'm back at Uni now so didn't get a chance to take one on my camera.
I always find our Christmas tree so unique as my mum buys a few unique, handmade baubles from a Swedish stall at a Christmas market every year. Slowly, the collection has gradually built up so now our Christmas tree holds many happy memories. Said market is this coming weekend so doubt there will be a few new additions!
Enjoy the week.
