A weekend break in York...

Hello m'lovelies! Those of you who follow me on Instagram will know that hubby and I have had a most marvellous, wonderful weekend away in York. Yes, so sorry to have high jacked your Instagram feeds! I have so much to tell you! For those of you who have never been to this town, rich in it's Viking heritage, I can highly recommend a visit. Now, we did not set off to explore the historic richness of this picturesque town. Oh no sirree! We hankered after a frivolous, kidlet-free weekend, exploring the vintage shopping scene, and a few late nights eating and drinking our way through the cobbled streets!

Our home for the weekend! 'The Royal', York...

...beautiful old building, and what an entrance!

Hubby and I, ready for a night on the town!

York has so much to offer...
Food, glorious food!

The Shambles...voted one of the prettiest streets in the UK. So quaint!

Shopping heaven! Lots of 'ooh-ing and 'aah-ing'...Let's step back in time...

'Purple Haze', a wonderful vintage clothing store, for both men and women!

...spoilt for choice!

Superb vintage finds at 'The Vintage Emporium'...Unfortunately, the York store will be closing at the end of July, but Harrogate is not far...

Glitz and glamour at 'Molly Browns'...

'Give the dog a bone'...a quirky gift shop, for gifts that are a little different, and a bit of pop culture. And, very stylish, helpful shop assistants! Thank you ladies!

And my favourite find of all...'The Flax and Twine'...don't miss a visit to this beautiful shop, brimming with prettiness and superb vintage goodness!

Hubby treated me to a bit of 'Greengate'...
Happy girl!

And what would a jolly weekend be without a few cocktails? Cheers!

Or a glass of wine? Or two...? sorry it had to end...
But, we came home in good spirits. Guess who came back with us?
