Indulging in the Luxury Collection at Crêpeaffaire

***REVIEW***
Tucked away under the escalator in intu Eldon Square in Newcastle, you'll find Crêpeaffaire. A small crêperie where you can enjoy freshly prepared French-style crêpes, whatever your craving, at any time of the day. 

The restaurant is also celebrating its first birthday this week after opening in the recently developed Greys Quarter of Eldon Square a year ago. It was also one of our significant anniversaries last week, so hubby and I were delighted to receive an invitation to try out the new Luxury Indulgent Crêpes and Shakes that are now on offer at Crêpeaffaire in Newcastle.

Staying at Sleeperz Hotel in Newcastle (And being a tourist in your home town)

***REVIEW***

It’s not often that you get to be a tourist in your own city. But that is exactly what we did during the last half-term break. We were tourists in NewcastleGateshead. A place, where I have lived for over twenty years, and where the boys have always lived. It was great. It has given us all a totally new perspective on the place where we live. And we didn’t just have day trips every day either, we actually stayed in a hotel too. A Sleeperz Hotel.

Where To Watch Christmas Lights Being Switched On in North East England

That's it. Fenwick's Christmas Window for 2017 has been unveiled and it’s Paddington. It's always a closely guarded secret but did you guess correctly? I think a lot of people did this year. 

I'm definitely starting to feel Christmassy and I've even had my first mince pie of the year. Soon though, it will be the jingle of sleigh bells and the rustling of wrapping paper which can mean only one thing, that Santa Claus is on his way. 

So now that the countdown to Christmas has begun, when and where will you be able to see the Christmas Lights switched on this year across North East England.
