STOP PRESS! Published on design*sponge!

My Leeds City Guide has just been published on influential design blog design*sponge (eek! squeal of excitement!), featuring some of the city's most famous places and spaces...

The UK's 'Most Delicious Cupcake' found and indulged at The Sunshine Bakery

Writing a guide to your city might just be the best way of reminding yourself of all that is good about it - the galleries, the indie shops, the open spaces... and of course for reminding you where to find all things delicious.

Stunning architecture, quirky shops and yum food at the Corn Exchange

But also some hidden gems and best-kept secrets

Get your Yorkshire yarns at funky little knit shop Baa Ram Ewe

Emerging artists' exhibitions, art and craft workshops, unique handmade gifts and a sweet cafe at the Bowery

Researching it was a fantastic excuse to indulge in afternoon tea and cakes, check out some of our hottest new artists and shop for gorgeous things.

'Buy me' antiques at Retro Boutique

It tells you about the kind of places I would take you if you came to stay.
