Italian Fashion on our high street!

Italian Fashion on our high street!

Katie, the owner of Shoenique, which is on the high street in Scarborough has so much love for the brand, and it shows. Listening to Katie’s story, which she tells with pride, energy, and emotion, is lovely. She has a “passion for fashion”, the Italian style is apparent, it's classy, elegant and stunning. The shop is beautiful and designed well, the visual merchandising is creative, eye-catching, and fresh with colour. The customer service here is excellent, nothing is too much trouble, and it’s easy to see why Katie has so much support from her many loyal customers. The business is…

The Forum: A Premier Entertainment Venue on the Yorkshire Coast

The Forum: A Premier Entertainment Venue on the Yorkshire Coast

I must confess I thought I knew all that The Forum had to offer - I've visited the Cinema often and been tempted by a round of 10-pin-bowling a time or two. The Lodge Restaurant looks pretty tempting as well. But it was only after meeting John and Danny, the managers of the complex that I really took in all that this amazing venue has to offer. A family could quite easily spend a whole day here - its the perfect all-weather, all-age entertainment venue. Let's start with the Cinema, there's three screens - it's the only multi-screen cinema on…

Out with the old in with the new! 👡

Out with the old in with the new! 👡

Just as spring cleaning the home is a thing, at this time of year, I like to have a good look at what I have in the shoe department to make sure the sandals and pumps are still good for the coming year. Digging out my footwear and lining it up, I realise they have all seen better days! So, it’s time to get out there and see what’s on offer. I head down the high street to Pavers, which is a favourite of mine, and not just because there is so much choice but because the customer service is…

Redcliffe Farm – from Eggs to Hampers (and a bit more besides)

Redcliffe Farm – from Eggs to Hampers (and a bit more besides)

I'd be really surprised if there is anyone in the general area that hasn't heard of Redcliffe Farm. They have built a really solid reputation since they first established the shop in 2007 as THE go-to farm shop for quality, locally sourced fresh ingredients. The Cafe, is open all year round 7 days a week - open from 9am serves a perfect Eggs Benedict (not surprising given their origins - more later) but they are also renowned for a pretty scrummy Steak Pie too. Most of the favourites found in the cafe can also be found in the shop to…

The Cat’s Pyjamas

The Cat’s Pyjamas

Like me, I wonder if you've walked past the Tramway building on the corner of St Nicholas Cliff, thinking of it as the old-style cafe it was many years ago. If so, I encourage you to stop and take another look. The new Cat's Pyjamas has most definitely had a make-over. But be assured, it still has a lovely quirky vintage feel to it but with some fresh additions to decor and lighting. The main change, however, is in the menu and drinks offer. This is not just a place to stop for tea and cake - though this is…
