It's Jack's Birthday! | A Trip To York

For those of you who haven't seen my sickening posts on Instagram and Twitter, it has been my other half's birthday. He has turned 25 - half way to fifty. Ouch.

So, as my gift to Jack and a way to celebrate this occasion, we took a trip to York. As some of you may know, it is beautiful there and we share some lovely memories there too. I really wanted to stay in a little boutique hotel and make it look very special. I found the hotel, literally on google haha. It was called the 'Hotel Du Vin' and they have hotels all over the UK - definitely give them a search if you're looking for a romantic weekend away.

Let's take a look inside?

Doesn't that look simply heavenly? 
Yes, I did good. 

We had some gorgeous food while we were at Hotel Du Vin at their hotel restaurant. 

For breakfast, I had a smoked salmon and cream cheese crepe. It was incredible and beautifully presented. 

For lunch, I had steamed mussels served with fries and bread in a white wine and cream sauce. Jack had a burger, which for Jack is a no-brainer. He orders it, every single time, no matter where we go. He sometimes varies it between a beef burger and chicken burger, but that's the best you'll get. 

But, without a doubt the best part was finding my dream store inbetween the cobbled streets...

Literally they had cat themed everything. I mean, cat tissues, cat cushions, cat aprons. I could go on, but if you're ever lucky enough to visit York this store is a MUST. 

And now we are back home with this little monster, who's so happy we're home..
