Recently I was invited to take part in a campaign/challenge to explore Manchester for a day… but it wouldn’t be a challenge without a catch: I have to do it all on a £50 budget – and make the most of it!
For a blogger who’s lived in Manchester for nearly six years I have never blogged much about my adopted hometown, so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to showcase more of the city I now call home so here it goes… Continue Reading
Now that there’s definitely a chill in the air, it’s time to talk about transitional fashion. For me, the autumn/winter can only mean a number of things: fewer hours of daylight but many more opportunities to play with layers; dialling down the temperature but dialling up the toastiness… all the way up!

Before I embarked on this (yet another) very eye-opening trip, a few people started asking me questions about my experience as a person living far away from their family… so I’ll be sharing all my answers this #TravelTuesday! Continue Reading
So this came as a bit of a random opportunity but a few weeks ago, I was invited to the launch night at Juniper’s new restaurant in Hale… and to be completely honest, I wasn’t too impressed with my experience then – with both their food and their service – but I put that down to a number of factors: 1) perhaps a new team of staff; 2) maybe a new menu; 3) possibly the number of attendees; and 4) definitely the rush.
Not long after the launch, I decided to give it another try (largely because we were gifted vouchers to spend on another meal) and I was pleasantly surprised – so let me walk you through why…
