A Day at the Farm.

A couple of weeks ago now I spend the afternoon at my friends farm where she keeps her horse, Saint. He is an absolutely beautiful horse although he really didn’t want his picture taken ha! I did manage to get some good ones in the end though. I’m pretty happy with these few..

What do you think? Any help or advice on my photos would be very much appreciated! I understand hat taking pictures of animals can be very challenging but I personally do love doing it; they make great photos! We also had Sadie with us, my friends dog. Just look how cute she is; She was as boisterous and lively as ever but completely adorable!

I’ve always wanted to get into horse riding but never really got round to it. I was having a chat with my friend and I may have been persuaded to give it a go! I’m not too sure if I can handle the dirt and smell all the time though haha!

Only a quick post this evening and not a very exciting one, I just wanted to share my pictures and get some feedback really 🙂

Bye for now,

Night at the Dogs.

Hey. I’ve been trying to do new things lately, experience different things, understand how certain things work and general get out there and enjoy life more. Spontaneously, last Friday night I went to the ‘Owlerton Stadium’ in Sheffield which for those that don’t know is the greyhound dog races. It was a really great night, I highly recommend going!

We paid £15 each for entry and to go into the restaurant and have a three course meal! There was a lot of choice on the menu but I went for the Prawn Cocktail for starters, Lamb with veg and potatoes, with the most gorgeous red wine sauce for main and then a raspberry cheesecake for dessert. It was really lovely, and for only £15, a great meal for so cheap!

I’m not a very lucky person generally but I did actually win two of the races! I’m not a huge gambler either, I like to be sensible and only bet a tiny amount on each race. I know the whole point of going to the races is to bet on the dogs but to be honest I just went for the night out. I could see that a lot of people were only there to enjoy the gorgeous food, atmosphere and a few drinks with friends. A lot of people would be put off as they think you have to place a bet, but don’t be, you don’t have too. Just go to enjoy a night out in a different location, and who knows you may fancy a little bet when your there and end up coming home a winner!

Check out their website; http://www.owlertonstadium.co.uk. They always have plenty of fantastic offers available and I can promise you a great and different night out! Give it a try!

A Much Needed Spa Day!

I haven’t been feeling 100% lately, I’ve felt really uptight and not really myself so what better way to release tension and feel super relaxed? That’s right! I went on a much needed SPA DAY! It was exactly what I needed and I don’t know why I didn’t do it sooner. I have felt so much better and a lot more relaxed ever since.

I went last Tuesday to Mercure St Pauls Hotel in the Sheffield City Centre. I hadn’t been to this particular spa before but it really is a lovely one; I will be going again! I felt unbelievably happy, relaxed and well looked after throughout the whole day and the fact I was in a very posh hotel for a very decent price made it even more amazing! I paid £39 for the day which included a 25 minute treatment, refreshments on arrival and full use of the spa facilities. How amazing is that?

On arrival at the hotel we were approached by two lovely receptionists that couldn’t do enough for us, they offered us a hot drink and then took us on a quick tour of the spa facilities.
The spa facilities were heavenly, very well maintained, extremely clean and very classy! In the main section of the spa there is a large pool which had plenty of seating placed around it, a rock sauna, a steam room, a Aroma therapy room (which is like a scented steam room), a ice igloo room and an experience shower which had three different unique settings available. They also have 8 spa treatment rooms with lots of different treatments on offer. I had the ‘time for me’ package but they do have lots of other packages available, take a look: http://www.spanaturelfitness.com/spa-treatments-and-experiences/experiences/


Being able to have a casual swim and make my way around all the different rooms at my own pace was just what I wanted. I have never felt so relaxed, all my worries disappeared and I kind of felt like I was in a big bubble; It was just perfect!
I had a back massage as my 25 minute treatment and I can honestly say it was the best massage I have ever had. I have always had problems with my back due to dancing for a young age and this particular massage made it feel the best it has felt in years. I will be having another one very soon!

I highly recommend you attend St Pauls, I can garantee a great, relaxing day that will leave you feeling refreshed. Check out their website ‘http://www.spanaturelfitness.com/spa/sheffield-st-Pauls’ and for even better offers to attend this particular hotel check out ‘Spabreaks.com’!

Bye for now,
