Afternoon tea in the clouds at the Sky Lounge, Leeds

On Saturday I had the pleasure of having afternoon tea in the Sky Lounge in Leeds. Despite having a very rainy view from the top, if it would have been sunny I imagine the view would have been amazing.

If you haven’t yet been to the Sky Lounge, I definitely recommend taking a trip there! There is a range of different tables and seats available (we actually ended up trying out a few as it wasn’t busy when we first arrived there), each just as comfortable and with plenty of space to relax.

The afternoon tea itself was probably one of the best I’d had. There was a good mix of sweet and savoury delights to try out (my favourite was a small mushroom tart) and the portion sizes weren’t small at all – I left the Sky Lounge feeling full to the brim!

We also ordered a bottle of Australian white wine (funnily called The Bush Telegraph) which went very well with the food. Unfortunately we were a bit short for time, otherwise no doubt we also would have tried out one of the delicious-looking cocktails on the extensive list.

Overall, I’d definitely rate the Sky Lounge very highly and I’ll be sure to return the next time I’m in Leeds. Thank you for a lovely experience!

Food favourite: Deliciously Ella’s potato salad

With such lovely weather surrounding us at the moment, finding meals to match has been a bit tricky. Whenever the warm weather hits, I find myself craving lighter meals – think salads, lots of veg and simple meats and fish.

As usual, I turned to Deliciously Ella for inspiration, and this time her potato salad fit the criteria perfectly. I coupled it with a simple baby leaf and sugar-snap pea salad and a fillet of grilled salmon.

Check out the full recipe here – I urge you all to try it!

Vegetarian heaven at Tibits

Have you ever been to Tibits? No? Well, I urge you to go now!

I have been before, but I have just visited a new branch that has opened up in Oerlikon, Zurich, and it was absolutely amazing. If you don’t know what Tibits is, it’s basically a vegetarian buffet style cafe/restaurant, with the option to sit in or take away. You’re charged based on how much your plate weighs.


It really is vegetarian heaven, and with two branches now open in London, there is no excuse not to give it a go.

ps. Try one of their scrumptious juices for your five-a-day in a glass!
