WHY EVERYONE SHOULD HOST A FRIENDSGIVING

WHY EVERYONE SHOULD HOST A FRIENDSGIVING

As you are all aware a couple of weeks ago it was Thanksgiving in America. Here in the UK it will fly past us without us even batting an eyelid, we don’t get a public holiday nor do we know anyone that celebrates it. However this year was somewhat different to me, having recently moved in with my American flatmate, who is living a thousands of miles away from home and her friends and families, we decided that we would throw a thanksgiving dinner together. As a sucker for a party…

WINETASTING AT VEENO *

WINETASTING AT VEENO *

We had the pleasure of visiting Veeno, a quaint little Italian café tucked away on a back street in Manchester. The brand started 3 years ago with two Italian guys’ passion for Spuntini* and wine, and noticed that there was nowhere in Manchester offering the same thing. Veeno now has 14 stores across the UK, with a new one opening in Kingston upon Thames. The café offers a variety of wine, prosecco, beer, small nibbles and light bites. They have various wine tasting packages perfect for meeting up with friends…

LAS IGUANAS – DEANSGATE – MANCHESTER

LAS IGUANAS – DEANSGATE – MANCHESTER

You must now by now, one of our favourite things to do is to go out for dinner! So, when we were invited to try out Las Iguanas new menu, of course the answer was a yes! I have been a few times and always loved my experience at this busy Mexican restaurant., however it was nice to try something different. DECOR & ATMOSPHERE: ★★★★ As we arrived to the restaurant we were surprised how huge this restaurant actually is, from the front it seemed quite small. It had a…

HOW I GOT ON THE BBC

HOW I GOT ON THE BBC

So, back in April I moved back to my uni city of Manchester, although I have some family here, I lost most of my uni friends to their hometowns. So, when I moved back I did’t really have many people to hang out with. After a difficult relationship, I lost a lot of confidence and really found it hard to go out ad meet new people. It was daunting and scary, and I felt like I had forgotten how to interact. This is where The Girl Gang comes in. My…

LANA DEL REY – LIVERPOOL ECHO ARENA

LANA DEL REY – LIVERPOOL ECHO ARENA

As soon as Lana Del Rey announced two extra dates after her intimate performance in London, ticket purchase was a must. After not attending a concert for a while this was the perfect gig to ease back into the scene. Not only that but anything for that nostalgic feeling that comes along with songs from her debut album ‘Born To Die.’ Those late university night staring over the city of Manchester, we simply bliss and that album was the perfect accompaniments to those moments. Surprisingly, out of all the concerts…

#BESTSUMMEREVER WITH THAIKHUN – MANCHESTER – SPINNINGFIELDS *

#BESTSUMMEREVER WITH THAIKHUN – MANCHESTER – SPINNINGFIELDS *

Thai has always been one of my favourite foods. I love the range of flavours involved, the creaminess and the coconut. So, last week  I was in my element when I was invited to Thaikhun for a taste of the exotic. It is a restaurant I have always wanted to dine in as I spend a lot of time in Spinningfields, however, have not yet had the chance. The decor is so aesthetically pleasing, it draws you in immediately and I couldn’t wait to sit in the TukTuk. We were…

A TRIP TO KNOWSLEY SAFARI PARK WITH TYRE PLUS

A TRIP TO KNOWSLEY SAFARI PARK WITH TYRE PLUS

Over the weekend, my bestie and I went to go spend a weekend on the outskirts of Liverpool. As you could see from my Instagram, we had luscious massages, a trip to Knowsley safari park and was plied with rum! I don’t think you could have asked for a better weekend really. I have only ever experienced a safari park once, that was when I was living in Africa as a child and we actually had to drive through one monthly. Yes, insane right?! Our regular bus went cruising on…
