She also spoke of enjoying room service and champagne in Edinburgh and Newcastle.
However, the photos have angered staff employed at a care home owned and managed by a company headed by Mrs Fryer and who lives in a £1.4m home.
They were posted just days after staff at the troubled care home Radcliffe Gardens in Pudsey, West Yorks. were told they would not be paid until at least mid-January.

Lee Naylor, who works as a cook at Radcliffe Gardens, said staff were frantic with worry but their pleas had “fallen on deaf ears”.
She said: “I texted Mrs Fryer asking when to expect my wages as my mortgage is due tomorrow. She told me I wouldn’t be getting paid until at least mid-January.
“The Liberty advent calendar she’s bragging about cost more than what my mortgage is. I explained to her I had no way of paying it. I have no savings. It’s cruel how she is treating the staff and residents.”
