Happy bank holiday Monday everyone!
I hope you’ve all had the best time, basking in the sunshine and enjoying the fact that we still have another day off before we go back to work – I for one am a huge fan of a bank holiday weekend, and this one has been no different!
And here is everything I was loving last week!
Last weekend I bought a couple of midi dresses from Primark, but I didn’t get chance to wear them until this week. I went for them both as I usually don’t go for midi dresses because I’m not the tallest, but I love these and they’ve come in handy when it’s been a bit warmer. I got one in orange, which is very unlike me, and a pale pink with a palm tree print on.
On Thursday, I was invited to review Tre Ciccio in Altrincham. I’ve been once before to their launch and loved it, so I knew I was in for a treat. I took Jordan with me and we had such a lovely meal – their pizzas are incredible, and it’s lovely to see it doing so well in my hometown too! Full review coming soon so keep an eye out for it.
A couple of weeks ago, the lovely people from Adagio teas got in touch with me and asked if I wanted to sample some of their offerings, which obviously I said yes to as an avid tea drinker. Some of the flavours sound amazing, including lemon meringue, chocolate chip and matcha. So far I’ve only tried the vanilla and summer rose, but they’ve both been lovely and I can’t wait to try more.
On Friday evening, Jordan and I went for a couple of drinks with some of our old work friends to Mackie Mayor in Manchester. We managed to get a table almost straight away, and it was great to catch up with them all – plus, Mackie Mayor is one of my favourite places to go!
Saturday In The Sun
This Saturday, I met up with two of my work friends for a drink in the sunshine. We met in Manchester and went to St. Anne’s Square which had a pop-up bar there called The Greenhouse. We sat outside with a jug of Pimms and it was a lovely way to spend the afternoon.
After the Pimms, I made my way over to Media City to meet up with another group of friends and we sunbathed with G&Ts on the grass they have there. We chose to go here because it was quieter than going into Manchester, and it was nice to do something different. We went to Rudy’s afterwards, which I’ve been wanting to go to for ages, and then to a Margarita festival at Albert Hall next door.
I was contacted by Old English earlier in the week and asked to pick out a couple of bits for their new collection. I’d heard of the brand before, but I’d never really looked on their website, but it was full of cute little bits and bobs. I went for a couple of prints and a badge, and I can’t wait for them to arrive!
Yesterday, Jordan and I drove down to Warwick for an overnight stay at The Globe. We wandered around the town when we first got here and up to the castle and chilled in the hotel room for a bit too. We were very kindly treated to dinner in the restaurant downstairs, which was delicious. I’ll be writing up my mini guide when I’m back at home!
