Byron Burger | Deansgate

As I mentioned in my Weekend Wanderings #1 post, Matt, Matt’s dad and I headed to Byron burger. I’d been happily snapping away for my blog, but when I got back I realised all the snaps were blurry. So, we had no choice to return and take more, right? Byron Burger recently perched itself on…

A Love Letter to Manchester

Three years. Three magnificent years spent in Manchester. When I headed to university in Manchester three years ago, I never thought I’d love it here as much as I do. To be honest I didn’t really think that much about the city that I would be living in when I applied to university, but I’m…

Bank Holiday Weekend

Don’t you think the best weekends are the ones full of friends, too much booze and a whole load of shopping?! Me too. Last weekend I invited my two friends Brogan and Dionne to my flat for a weekend of shopping (haul coming soon!), filming and fun. I had such a lovely weekend and really…

It was Thanksgiving last week, and although I’m not remotely American I do like to occasionally think about the things that make me happy and lucky to be alive. Here’s five that have been poking around in my brain this past week: 1. There is only two weeks left of university before I can go…

Staying Organised

It’s no secret I’m an organisation freak. I’m the annoying person that has her Christmas presents bought and wrapped by the beginning of January, the one who hands in work days not hours before it is due in, and generally has her life planned down to the most minute list. No… I’m not showing off!  In fact,…

Christmas Markets

The lead up to Christmas in Manchester is always fairly magical. Yes, the temperatures drop, but there is just something about the smell of mulled wine floating through the air that makes me happy to be there! The Christmas markets never fail to disappoint, with lots of stalls laden with edibles, decorative items and unique…

7 things that have made me happy

It’s a little hard to remain positive at this time of year. Homesickness kicks in, it starts to get dark early and university work appears to drown me. However, in a bid to see the world less depressing, I’m going to make a list of all the things that have made me smile. 1. The…
