photo diary | lincoln christmas market

On Friday my friends and I decided to take a little break from essay writing and revising to take a trip up to Lincoln to see the Christmas Market. The train wasn't too bad for us on the journey there as they put on a large train due to the market and all the carriages are declassified so you can sit in first class, so that is exactly what we did. We were the only ones there, and as it was lunchtime while we were on the train we all sat and eat that without funny looks from other passengers like normal. 


We had a look round Lincoln Cathedral as entry is now free and I felt like I was walking around Hogwarts. There was also a choir singing some Christmas song, they were lovely. 

Now onto the market, the bit we went for!

This beautiful building in the heart of the market is actually the crown courts!

For the journey back we again got to sit in first class and enjoy our dinner as we left at 6:30 and didn't get back into Leicester until 8:30. I had the new pigs and blankets panini from Costa! It was so yummy! It was followed by a doughnut from Doughnotts, of course, where we both had a cookie monster this time. 

Lizzie stayed in Lincoln and took a picture for me of the Cathedral at night!  SO beautiful, definitely will be going back there. 

We are planning to go to Manchester Christmas Market next year as I have always heard such good things about. I am also going back to Nottingham next week and I can't wait to see the Winter Wonderland there as it is always my favourite thing!

what i wore last week | university edition

Over the past couple of months, I have started to think a little more about what I am wearing rather than my classic jeans, white top, denim jacket and vans. I bought a new pair of jeans last month from Asos and a cardigan from Monki in September and they have been my new favourite thing to wear.

So over this past week, I have thought a lil more about what I have been wearing trying to put a lil more effort in however that is not always the way. It was also very cold Tuesday morning for my 9am so the beanie did come out.

things to do in nottingham | kitty café

I have been considering doing a new series on my blog about things to do in different cities around the UK, and maybe elsewhere. However, I was stuck on where to start but of course, I chose to start in Nottingham - my home. 

On Tuesday I took my friends from University on a day trip to Nottingham, where I showed them some iconic sights and then we went to the Kitty Café - the main reason for our trip. 

LOCATION: 31-37 Friar Lane, Nottingham, NG1 6DD
Friar Lane is just located off Old Market Square, a very central point in Nottingham. Very easy to find. 

You have to book in order to visit here. However, It is very easy and can be done online via their website - 
Once you arrive at the cafe you have to pay a welfare chare which is to ensure the health & well-being of the cats. For adults its £6 and for kids it's £4. With this, you get an hour in the cafe. 

They have a wonderful menu full of food and drinks, however we only had drinks as we were going elsewhere for food. I must say from what I saw of the food though, it did look delicious! 

Now to the best bit - the cats. 

Have any of you been to a kitty cafe? I think we are going to try and go to the one in Birmingham next.  Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed! I can't wait to write some more posts for this series.
