NEWS | Girl About Founder Lyndsey Joins Actress Natalie Anderson & Atomic Kitten Natasha at Wellbeing Event in Leeds on 5th September. GET YOUR TICKETS!

It's been a funny few weeks for me, my boobs and Archie. We've been up and down like yo-yos and I was seriously considering stopping breastfeeding.

I can only describe our digs at Camp Katur in Yorkshire as something created by giant-size Borrowers. All sorts of crap borrowed from everywhere and turned into something quite useful, functional and very practical. A recycled/upcycled mastermind. The thought that has gone into Bears Place and all that it's made of it truly genius.

Soak up the seaside atmosphere at one of Yorkshire's outdoor pools, reservoirs, freshwater beaches and lidos this summer. Here are 9 of the best spots in Yorkshire to strip off, jump into your cosi, dive in and pretend you're on the Costas.

REVIEW | Ladies ‘wot’ Lunch at Elsworth Kitchen. A new Bistro in Skipton – Yorkshire

Emma (AKA Girl About West Yorkshire) and I were invited to this fabulous little bistro that is Elsworth Kitchen located just off Skipton High Street, right next to the canal and quite new to the Skipton dining scene. We were given the warmest of welcomes by co-owner Rebecca who radiated so much enthusiasm for Elsworth Kitchen - a venture founded by this lovely lady and her hubby Bruce. It's less than a year old and was opened by the delightful duo following Bruce's career as Head Chef at The Angel at Hetton for 20 years and Rebecca's role as Bistro Manager at The Devonshire Arms at Bolton Abbey.

REVIEW | Fine Dining at The Cavendish Hotel – The Chatsworth Estate in Derbyshire

It’s not every day you get to eat in a restaurant where the head chef made it to the 2019 Roux Scholarship Final, so when I was invited to have lunch at The Cavendish Hotel on The Chatsworth Estate in The Peak District, there was no way I would miss the opportunity. Dad was my date for this lunchtime delight. He appreciates good food and wine, and it’s a long time since we have spent time one on one, so felt like the perfect plus one for the occasion.

REVIEW |  Hot Tub Woodland Glamping at Bears Place – Camp Katur in North Yorkshire

I can only describe our digs at Camp Katur in Yorkshire as something created by giant-size Borrowers. All sorts of crap borrowed from everywhere and turned into something quite useful, functional and very practical. A recycled/upcycled mastermind.

WELLBEING | My 10 Tips For Living With & Coping With Anxiety

Living with and coping with anxiety can feel like, and mean something different to everyone, rearing its head at different moments in life – often feeling like a full force body swerve to the mind that you’re not expecting. It arrives often with no warning, without invite, and certainly isn’t a one that anyone chooses to have hanging around like a purple cloud of smog just slightly out of reach that you can’t quite put your finger on.

My Breastfeeding Story: ‘I blamed myself for not being able to breastfeed’

I look back on my breastfeeding journey as a series of unfortunate events and one that’s hard to share.
I loved being pregnant and embraced every stage. I was well informed for delivery, was relaxed and went into hospital calm and ready to deliver my boy with a lose plan ready to move through the different scenarios that I’d inevitably face, which I believe set me up for a smooth birth.
