As being part of the TBP Talent Management family, myself and my fellow influencer talent get treated to a luxury getaway every few months to explore a new part of the UK or overseas destination. This trip was the turn of Leeds – famous for the likes of Mel B and accidentally creating Jelly Tots in 1967, it was time to check out this great Northern city and some of its Instagram hotspots.
Leeds from London took a very short amount of time to get to, 2hr 20 mins to be exact. On arrival, myself and the other influencers including Jamie from Beauty Rocks Blog, Emma Corrie-Hill, Juliana from Beauty by Juliana, Massiel Feliz and Daniel Marin headed to Trinity Leeds, where we were gifted a £100 gift voucher to spend in the shopping centre. Daniel and I headed to Topman where we selected an outfit and then made our way to the famous cocktail bar The Alchemist, Leeds for an impromptu terrace photo shoot in our new threads.
After a few cocktails, we headed over to the new and improved The Foundry Wine Bar, which has recently been rebranded Matt Healy X The Foundry, as the Masterchef finalist has taken over the restaurant. Although the refurb and official opening doesn’t happen for a few weeks, we were lucky enough to be treated to a six-course vegan preview dinner, where Matt championed one ingredient for each of the course in a farm-to-fork style, proving that no part of a vegetable should be wasted and can be cooked in a variety of ways, while still being flavoursome.
We then headed to our home for the night, Northridge Hall – A Kate and Tom’s property in Ledsham, just a 30-minute ride out of the city. On arrival, we were taken back by the sheer size and beauty of the house, which offered a grand entrance hall, country house style kitchen (inclusive of AGA and a welcome pack including home cooked muffins), various lounges, dining rooms, bedrooms with roll-top baths and an outhouse with two hot tubs.
As per TBP Talent trip style, our beds were adorned with goodies from brands such as facemasks and scrubs from Freeman Beauty, Tangle Teezer (who now do a men’s version) and AVON products, including their men’s fragrance, Attraction for Him.
The next day after taking it easy over a nice breakfast spread provided by The Blogger Programme, and a few hours splashing around in the hot tubs it was time to pack up and head to our next activity, Tick Tock Unlock – Basically, if we didn’t escape this escape room we were not going back to London! They certainly gave us the hard one! But between us, we cracked the code in time to board our train back to London.
A big thanks to Laurie at The Blogger Programme for all her hard work organising another successful trip. To find out more about TBP Talent Management, follow this link.
