Taking a little break… | NinkComPoop

Breaks are important. Week long ones, two week long ones, day ones, even just a couple hour ones. If we don’t take them often enough, we can easily overwork ourselves and burn ourself out…

My boyfriend asked me whether I fancied a week away with his family in the middle of Huddersfield (close to Manchester if your Geography is terrible like mine). All I knew was that his lovely mummy wanted a break away for her birthday with all her children. Of course I jumped to the opportunity and felt that it was a great excuse to look forward to something while in the dreary month of February (have I ever told you how much I hate February?).

Throughout our time there in this absolutely huge cottage (cottage blog post to come!), we had a few little walks around the area. However, Huddersfield is one of the hilliest areas I have ever been to, so a “quick pop” to the shop turned into a sweaty half hour hike. This kind of holiday was almost a ‘first’ for me, as most holidays I’ve previously been on have involved lots of planning and arrangements for various sights, areas and activities. It was a nice change to just sit sipping whiskey and playing card games in a fancy looking mansion and pretending we were rich for a week!

I managed to take some snaps of just a few of my favourite sightings. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

I just had to take a photo of this cash machine. Yes, that’s a cash machine. But also a phone box… Can you even get anything more perfect?

We had to take a drive into York while we were near the area to do a spot of shopping (keep eyes peeled on my channel for a haul by the way…). The buildings in York were just beautiful, particularly down The Shambles (a famous street lined with timber-framed buildings housing a range of touristy shops).

Within the Cathedral, there was a little area where you were able to light a candle for friends or family who have passed.

To finish off, a lovely picture of Adam sat beside a fancy Prosecco cocktail…

Isn’t he dishy? ๐Ÿ˜‰

Let me know in the comments your favourite places to visit when you need a small escape and why. I’d love to hear them!

Best,

My name is Ellie James, a 23 year old living in Brighton. I am a moving image graduate that jumped into the world of blogging. I predominately work on my YouTube channel to create content within the lifestyle, beauty and fashion categories. I put my creative skills developed from university into practice with the projects I create. I like to focus on alternative fashion and personal style, expressing individuality and creativity. Like most interests of mine, my love for type of fashion varies. Alternative subcultures like punk, goth, and bohemian on one part, and pastel, sheer, and floral being the other. But combining the two is what I live for.

  1. Omg you were so close to where I live in Leeds, it’s about 30 minutes away from Huddersfield. I love York it’s such a lovely town with quirky shops. You should come to Leeds and come explore. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. The pictures are so beautiful! I like how the one time I’m in Brighton and you’re up North somewhere, my kinda luck. My family and I do a massive camping trip to Cornwall, always at the same place. No wifi, no signal for any phones. But we get to the point where we are just ready for a complete break from society, so all is good.

  3. My all time favourite place to go to is Manchester! I have soooo many good memories there; meeting Shannon, seeing all my favourite bands and all my family live there too ๐Ÿ™‚ oh, and the airport which is my favourite place to be but also the worst ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

    However, I have a feeling Manchester will soon be replaced when I go to Cornwall for my birthday ๐Ÿ˜Š X
