Happy February everyone!
I hope you’ve had a wonderful start to the month – I already feel as though this one is going to fly by, but I can’t complain as the lighter mornings are making it feel as though spring is just around the corner!
1. Vegan Menu At Tampopo
I’ve worked with Tampopo a couple of times in the past, and I was very lucky to be invited to their Vegan Tasting Menu on Wednesday. I invited my friend Charlotte as I hadn’t seen her since before Christmas and it was the last day of her doing Veganuary. The food was amazing, and the flavours were all balanced so well.
2. Work Night Out
On Friday afternoon, my team had a meeting in Manchester, and we had a work night out afterwards. We started off at The Laundrette for food and drinks (the butternut squash pizza was amazing) before heading to Gasworks and then on to beer pong at Bunny Jacksons. I had such a fun night and woke up hangover free – bonus!
3. The White Closet
If you’re from the Manchester area (in particular, Didsbury) you probably will have heard of The White Closet on Burton Road. I made an appointment back in January as this was the first one I could get, and I’m so glad I waited for it. I went with my Mum and we had the loveliest experience. The woman who was showing us the dresses was so knowledgeable and showed us different ways to dress them up. I would highly recommend booking an appointment if you’re from around here.
4. Surprise Birthday Party
After the dress appointment, I whizzed over to my friend Abi’s house for her surprise birthday party with a group of friends. We all brought food and drink and she had no idea. It was such a lovely afternoon spending time with everyone.
5. Come Dine With Me
As you may know, if you read my blog a lot, a group of friends and I do a ‘Come Dine With Me’ where we go through the letters of the alphabet and chose a country beginning with that letter. This time it was R for Russia, and the food was very different to anything we’d had before, but tasty all the same. It was great to catch up with everyone as well as I hadn’t seen them since we got engaged so they had lots of questions!
6. Tatton Wedding Show
On Sunday afternoon, I went to the Bride: The Wedding Show at Tatton Park. It was one of the best shows I’ve been to so far. The catwalk show was incredible and I came away with lots of inspiration and suppliers I want to get in touch with.
7. Proove Pizza
After working up an appetite walking around the show, Jordan and I treated ourselves to a pizza at one of our favourite places, Proove in West Didsbury. Going out for dinner on a Sunday evening is one of my favourite things to do as it always makes the weekend feel a little bit longer (and pizza is my fave!)
8. Arrested Development
This last fortnight I’ve been in London a couple of times for work, and each time I’ve gotten back into watching Arrested Development on the train. It used to be one of my favourite shows a few years ago and I forgot how much I enjoyed it.
