[England - York ] Nicholson's Pubs - Old White Swan, Cross Keys, Punch Bowl, Harker's Pubs

Nicholson's Pubs is technically a chain. The company owns a lot of pubs in the England.

I have been to all four in York (the Old White Swan, the Cross Keys, the Punch Bowl, and Harker's). Each location has the same menu and the same selection of beer and cider. Compared to some of the other pubs in York, these four have plenty of room, although they can get crowed when it's busy in town.

The have traditional pub food, including fish and chips. I've had the fish and chips a few times and it's really good; it also comes with mushy peas, which are exactly what they sound like. The portions are large and the prices are average for pub food. The real bonus of Nicholson's places is that they serve food. Some pubs don't, so if you're looking for food and a drink, Nicholson's is a good bet. I've also had the bacon and chicken sandwich. It was good, and as with all sandwiches here, the brown bread was the best part. The sandwiches, and most of the other food, come with chips (fries). The fish sandwich is a good alternative to fish and chips. The chicken and mushroom pie is also good and less messy.

This is the fish sandwich with chips.

Two of the York Nicholson's Pubs are on Goodramgate: the Cross Keys is at Goodramgate and Deangate and the Old White Swan is just off Low Petergate/Colliergate. The Punch Bowl is on Stonegate towards Davygate. Harker's is in St. Helen's Square perpendicular to the Mansion House.

[Skincare Review] Head-to-Head Test: Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. La Mer The Concentrate

 As promised, here is my blog comparing the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair vs. the La Mer The Concentrate. FTC disclaimer: I was sent both of these items for free in exchange for my full and honest review. I tried to be as scientific as humanly possible. I had a blinded reviewer (my mom) who was actually unaware I was even doing a skincare test, so her opinion is completely blinded and she tried really hard to give a full and honest review of differences she noticed. I did this for 2 weeks. In the 14 days before the test, I was testing out the Estee Lauder ANP product in exchange for my review. I had enough product left (and actually received a second sample to test). My nighttime skincare routine was the same as usual. 1) DHC Cleansing Oil - Buy from YesStyle | Buy from Amazon 2) Micellar Water (for eye makeup) 3) Rosette Cleansing Paste Sea Clay Smooth - Buy From YesStyle  | Buy from Amazon I used my PMD Clean (from CAUSEBOX) to wash my face.
