My favourite yoga channels on YouTube

Four years ago, I started my yoga practice. Quickly, I fell in love with the way yoga transformed my body and mind. The first two years I practiced exclusively at yoga studios.

Review: The Allotment Vegan Restaurant

Yesterday was the two-year anniversary of my boyfriend and I. To mark the occasion, we decided to have a meal out at the vegan fine dining restaurant ‘The Allotment’ in Stockport.
