Weekend Away In York

Hey guys ! 

Okay ... so I've been a lil bit unreliable the past two weeks with posting and it has only been one post a week but I promise I'm getting focused again now! I'm currently working on lots of new and exciting things for Don'tBurstMyBubble including new content on mental wellbeing and living a good and happy life , creating a newsletter and getting my own demain ! However whilst I'm doing that I will try my best to keep on top of posts. I've also been away this weekend because my mum booked me and my girlfriend a weekend away in York for my birthday present ! So today I thought I'd share a few pictures we took !

Our first day began at the train station ... we took a lot of trains that day haha :)

But it was so worth it when we got to our gorgeous hotel !! We stayed at The Monkbar hotel in York and it was so lovely and fresh and all the staff were super friendly :) Thanks mum !

Then we decided to head off for an evening walk around the city walls so that we could see all of York and get some nice photos. If you're ever in York you should definitely walk around the walls, it takes about two hours for most people ( My girlfriend is on crutches so it took us a while longer with sit downs ) but it's well worth it !

During our walk we found this pretty fountain where we took the chance to take some photos !

On the Saturday we went to the Castle Museum where we got to go on a Victorian carasel , The Chocolate Factory ( That was a particularly yummy part of our trip ) and then to the Dungeons !

On our final day in York we went for breakfast at Betty's ( an adorable high quality tea shop in York that I've always loved ) and then picked up some of gorgeous brownies that were decorated to look like ladybirds !

My girlfriend nearly gave me a heart attack whilst taking the photo of the Betty's sign by dangling herself and my camera out of the window from the upstairs tea room because " But Marianne .... everyone has the picture from the street it will look better from up here ... " haha , but hey I love her :)

What have you guys been up to this weekend ? Have you ever been to York ? Let me know in the comments !

Stay Strong <3 Stay Smiley :) 

lots of love, Marianne xxx
