A Stay at Hotel Indigo, Durham

Set in the former university offices at Old Shire Hall, Hotel Indigo Durham has recently opened following a £15 million transformation. I was lucky enough to be invited along to check out the hotel, and was overwhelmed by just how wonderful it is!

The stunning red brick building is ideally situated on Old Elvet, which makes it the perfect base to explore the city centre. It is also the home to Tinderbox Espresso Bar, Marco Pierre White Steakhouse Bar and Grill and the Rotunda Bar – which I’ll get onto later.

Favourite Films of 2017

Happy New Year!

2018 is already looking fantastic for films, so it felt right to make my first blog post of the year about my top 10 films of 2017.

I saw even more films than usual this year, thanks to my handy Cineworld Unlimited card (find out about that here). I still managed to miss quite a few though, but out of the ones I did see…here are my top 10!

25 Sexiest Men of 2017

I love December. It’s when everyone reflects on their favourite things of the year. I like to take this time to look through my saved photos and see which famous lads I’ve been swooning over for the past 12 months. Yep, #BurgessBuffBlokes is BACK for 2017, and it has been tough.

I’ve taken a leaf out of Dua Lipa’s book, and decided to give myself some rules.

1- In order to be featured, they must have done something this year.
2- Only 3 men from my 2016 list could make it again in 2017!

Like last year, I have put a LOT of thought into this…probably a little too much. But here we have my list of 25, and you might want to take a seat to read it, because swooning is inevitable.

Here we go…

On Sunday 10th December, Manchester singer/songwriter Gemma Moon gave us an early Christmas present in the form of her first single ‘Avalanche’, and I have had it on repeat!

I decided to catch up with Gemma to find out more about her music, writing, and of course, her new single!

NOVEMBER FAVOURITES

I don’t know about you, but I can’t get over how quickly this year has gone and now we’re in December! I managed to get on top of my Christmas shopping early this year, and was finished by pretty much the middle of November.

Whilst I was out looking for presents, OBVIOUSLY I managed to find some treats to buy for myself…

Conquering My Fear With CBT

We all have things that we don’t like, things that we’re frightened of. Mine is spiders. Over the past few years my fear of them was getting worse, and it was beginning to have an effect on my health. Whenever I came face to face with a spider in my house I’d cry hysterically, have a panic attack, and usually throw up. I couldn’t even bare to be left in the house alone in case one would appear.

Over the past decade the Marvel Cinematic Universe has expanded phenomenally, producing 17 fantastic films to date. With the release of the latest installment in the MCU this week, Thor: Ragnarok, I decided to basically torture myself into ranking all 17 films (so far) from worst to best.

*WARNING: May be slight spoilers ahead, but nothing too drastic…

Here goes…
