Food and Cocktails in York

I had a week off from Uni last week so I went back home to York. While there I met up with my two best friends Abbie and Sophie and we went out for a meal and cocktails to celebrate Sophie's 20th birthday. 

We started of at Bills, a restaurant along Coney Street in the center of York. It was my first time to go but I had been wanting to go for a while. I love the decor inside; chandeliers, candles, open ceiling, chalkboards and it's split into different areas which makes it feel more intimate. The staff were all so polite (and good looking!) The food was delicious. I had marinated chicken skewers served with cous cous and pitta bread, the other two both had a halloumi and hummus burger which they both said was great. For pudding we all had warm mini cinnamon doughnuts with fresh strawberries and chocolate sauce which, oh my god, I can so recommend!

The atmosphere was so nice in Bills that we stayed there for two hours. After that we moved on to The Biltmore, another place which I have been really wanting to go to for a while. The Biltmore is a restaurant upstairs and a bar downstairs. They have a great choice of cocktails, they are expensive though. Since going I have read that they offer a student discount which I wish we had known previously. I had the Singapore Sling which was amazingly good.

After The Biltmore we went around the corner to BoraBora, a very different type of bar but just as good! I had a great night, it was lovely to see my friends again and all three places I would definitely go back to.

(Very) Belated Valentines Day Post

Sooo, hi there! I know it has been quite a while since I last blogged and I know that Valentine's Day was over a week ago but thought I would write this short post. Me and my two flatmates decided that we would give each other cards and chocolates because we're cute like that!

Recently I also got a parcel from my Dad in Japan which contained a selection of goodies. Don't worry, the devil mask was for Setsubun, a Japanese festival, not for Valentine's day!!

Hope you all had a lovely Valentine's day whether you're single or in a relationship!
