Hey folks! Just a quick one this evening but just wanted to share some pictures from the Vintage Home Show I’ve just been to at Victoria Baths in Manchester today. If you love vintage furniture and retro lighting you’ll be spoilt for choice at this event.

I’ve had a fair share of Italian’s in my time but was more than pleasantly surprised by the suggestion of Salvi’s Cucina on John Dalton Street the other day. I genuinely felt like we had just stepped off the streets of Manchester and been transported to a secret little eaterie in Naples. Continue reading

So when they got in touch to say they were having a Birthday brunch and celebrating the launch of their Bloody Mary buffet, it seemed like the perfect time to finally get acquainted. Continue reading
