A few nights a go, I had the pleasure of being invited to Cibo, a wonderful Italian restaurant in Manchester City Centre. Located just opposite the Hilton on Liverpool Street, Cibo offers up a relaxed, intimate dining environment with a menu that focuses on fresh ingredients, with extra Italian heart and soul.
I’ve been wanting to share this blog post for bloody ages, but simply haven’t found the time recently to write it up. So, now my mental Summer of many, many weddings is over, I’m getting back on the proverbial blogging horse in earnest.
Starting with this fab gin experience from the amazing Manchester Three Rivers.
It’s currently Tripadvisor’s No.1 “thing to do in Manchester” and it’s easy to see why. You’ll learn all about the history of gin and learn how to make your very own… Continue reading
One of the best things about blogging is discovering new brands and trying out new products. A couple of weeks a go, I was sent some skin and hair care products to try out from Amphora Aromatics, one of the UK’s biggest suppliers of pure essential oils and aromatherapy sundries. I was very excited to try these out as I always like to keep the products I use for self maintenance as natural as possible. Continue reading
One of my main goals for 2018 is to get outside more. Embrace the great outdoors, get some fresh air in the old lungs, and enjoy the gorgeous countryside that is just a short train ride away from Manchester. Continue reading
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.

Last Thursday evening I went to Didsbury. I haven’t been to Didsbury for quite a few years and whilst it’s always been a hub for bars and pubs that I frequented in my student days, I always felt it was missing a really good cocktail bar.
Enter Chalk Bar & Grill – recently refurbished and now being run by MAD Ltd, the team behind several other Manchester drinking establishments such as Rosylee, Tusk, Walrus, The Fitzgerald and Hula.
We were lucky enough to be invited along to their re-launch party so sampled some delicious cocktails, nibbles and delightful surroundings. Continue reading
Last week I had the pleasure of being invited along to Beef and Pudding‘s 2nd Birthday Brunch Bash in Manchester city centre. I’d always wanted to try Beef and Pudding since it’s launch as I used to work very close by, but had never got round to it. 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
