Every year Leeds celebrates it love for good grub with the annual Food and Drink Festival in Millieum Square. However this year for the first time as part of the 10th anniversary of the festival, my amazing hometown is throwing it's first ever 'month of food'. Between the 22nd of May and the 7th of June, there's countless foodie events on across the city. So if you want something to tickle your tastebuds then definitely check it out. For me there was one stand out, tasty treat I just had to get my hands on when I saw the line-up for this finger lickin' month. It was the commemorative burger created by the wonderful folk over at Almost Famous Leeds, The Leodensian. A burger that just screams all things... Yorkshire, Yorkshire, Yorkshire.

Cleopatra, the last Queen of Egypt was known for her beauty and the secrets he used to help keep her youth. Over 1,800 years ago Cleopatra used clay from the Nile River and the Arabian Desert as part of her beauty ritual to keep her skin rejuvenated. Since then clay treatments have been used throughout history, in the Roman spas built over 4,500 years ago and to this day in luxurious health spas across the world. And if your like me you'll love those times you get to pamper yourself. I find nothing more relaxing than putting on a face mask and sinking into a hot bubble bath.And now I've found the ultimate mud mask for both relaxation and keeping my skin in amazing condition. My new must have beauty product, Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay; a way to beautify and refresh the skin.

Down along Newcastle's Quayside you'll find an abundance of restaurants, bars and places to wet your whistle in the northern sunshine. But if your after a place where the meat comes quick and the booze comes easy, then none of them quite compare to that of Hop and Cleaver. This new bar and eatery is offering up all things meat and beer... cue the meat sweats and food comas all around. Everything is done in-house, from smoking their own meats to brewing their own craft beers. But if you're not a beer fan then don't fret. They also offer boozy cocktails and hard milkshakes which will will curb any sweet tooth. Seriously, what's not to love?
