Last week was a blur with not knowing what day it was and also having to get 5 days work done in 4, and also having Monday and Tuesday off this week but here were all the things I was loving last week.
1. Easter Monday Catch Up
On Easter Monday, I met up with two of my favourite blogger girls Lily and Erin at Rosylee in Manchester. We hadn’t seen each other since Christmas so it was really lovely to catch up with them both and be able to talk about Instagram and follows and everything without someone rolling their eyes at you (and take pretty pictures of our food). I will always be so thankful for the amazing people that this blog has introduced me to, and being able to call them real friends. (Photo – Erin on Instagram)
As mentioned about 3cm higher, me and my gal pals (don’t worry, I want to punch myself for saying that too, but going with it…) went to Rosylee for out meet up because a) it is all the instagram goals, and we are bloggers at the end of the day (expect LOL I forget my camera and the phone pic is rubbish) and b) it was 50% off food with it being a Monday, and if there’s one thing I love more than actual food, it’s spending half the amount on it. The service wasn’t great in Rosylee, but the food (and gin fizzy cocktail thang) more than made up for it – we all went for fancy kebabs and fries which were delicious!
3. Richmond Tea Rooms
After lunch on Monday we had a bit of a blogger photo shoot around the graffitied walls of Manchester’s Northern Quarter before we felt like we needed a piece of cake. We decided to go to Richmond Tea Rooms up by Piccadilly train station as none of us had been before. When we walked up to it, it reminded me of some of the back streets in Bruges, and inside its Alice in Wonderland themed which was amazing. The cakes are in a glass cabinet when you walk in and were mostly three tiered amazing-ness (yep, I just made up a word). We all went for different cakes (I got a banana and chocolate one) and shared a teapot of berry tea – all very delicious. If you’re looking for something a bit different in Manchester, I would definitely recommend this place (they also do breakfast which looks amazing!) Website here.
4. New Shoes
I had to go to the Trafford Centre on Wednesday to pick up a parcel I had had delivered there (because this girl does not like paying for delivery!) and whilst I was in there, I decided to have a little mosey on into Primark. The one in the Trafford Centre is inside Selfridges and is quite small, but it makes it much better because you don’t get easily distracted and end up with a £100 bill. I’d been toying with the idea of a pair of black mules to wear with jeans for a while and Primark had exactly what I was looking for and for a quarter of the price of ASOS. Winner winner!
On Friday evening, me and 8 others flew to Ibiza for one of my best friend’s hen do’s. Its been in the diary since October, and I’ve been looking forward to getting away with everyone for ages. It was such a good holiday I’m actually lost for words on how to describe it… but it really was such a fun 3 days of making memories with some amazing people. I’m going to do a full blog post on it with some of my pictures in the upcoming weeks, so keep an eye out for that!
6. Sabor Ibiza
I promised to do a special mention on here for the company that did our entertainment on the Saturday night that we were in Ibiza, Sabor Ibiza. They are a private catering company based on the island who specialise in party food and luckily for us, the apartment we were staying in had a roof terrace with an outside grill. They did a BBQ for us and we had a mixologist for 3 hours who made French martinis, mojitos and margaritas. The food was some of the best BBQ food I have ever ever had – a mixture of burgers, sausages, marinated chicken, fresh salads, coleslaw and probably some more than I have forgotten because I’m too busy salivating over here. It was such good value for money and was really nice to make the most of the apartment we were staying in and be waited on by two lovely guys (Gary and Steve) and an idea I would recommend, especially for something like a hen do.
