3 best brunch spots in Manchester

EDIT: I wrote this post a while ago, last month in fact after heading up to the beautiful, vibrant city to meet friends. I had it scheduled this week and thought to remove it in light of recent events but then realised, no. Manchester is still a great place, full of kind people (more than any other place I’ve experienced in the UK) and still a wonderful place to travel to. So I’m going to post this because I had an amazing time in the warm city, eating my way through locally created and lovingly built cafes, from Brits to Aussies that are welcomed in the city, and I hope it inspires people to go and experience the place for themselves be it the first time or the fiftieth time. I also hope you enjoy it and can feel the love that I felt when I was there. And hey, nothing can stop us Brits from brunching and carrying on with our day as we power on and don’t let fear stop us doing what we love with people we love.)

I’ve heard Manchester be called the ‘Shoreditch of the North’. When I think of Shoreditch, I think of a modern place with forward-thinking people, as well as some of the most exciting and new places to eat. Manchester is definitely all that, especially when it comes to finding the perfect place for brunch.

And after my lovely friend Liz who has one of the best vintage wardrobe selections, she gave me some tips and advice for the best in Nottingham vintage.

Tapas at Kazbar in Oxford

What with it being my last few days at Aurora Fashions with the girls, we decided to try out our local tapas bar Kazbar. We’d only heard good things about it (great food, hot men) so thought, where else would we go? Continue Reading

Bath: Austen’s Beautiful City

It’s been a long week, what with birthdays, day trips and work. However, it also means I have lots of new clothes/places to share! I went to Bath for the first time on Wednesday to do a Jane Austen tour. A bit geeky, yes, but I love the woman and it was really interesting.
