Another late post... Sorry! Just a little run through of my morning in Manchester a couple of weekends back with my family and little pup, through a series of (mostly) squares. I realise it's only a sneak peek of two places, but both were such gems that I felt compelled to share with you all. It was relieving to be away from home, even if it was only for a few days. Although, I did get rather sick of my dad's persistence towards taking tourist pictures in every irrelevant place photo. (Most notably the random candid in front of Primark? #asiandad) Anyway, I'm happier to be home now and back on track with my projects, one of which is redecorating my room! More to come soon, hope you're all well. Xx
P.S. Apologies in advance for a super photo-heavy post!
10:30-12:00: BRUNCH AT HOME SWEET HOME, NORTHERN QUARTER
We scoured the net to find the best place for brunch in the city and Home Sweet Home did not disappoint us at all. It definitely levels with the brunches that I have back home.
Highlight of the meal: the BEST Nutella and toasted marshmallow milkshake eeever. Seriously. Didn't even take my time to savour this, lapped it all up before my food came. Too good.
Also good but not as good: the poached eggs on toasted sourdough with a side of spinach. My go-to brunch of choice and Home Sweet Home certainly did it some justice. Just... not as good as the truffled poached eggs I get at a local place!
12:00-1:00: EXPLORING FRED ALDOUS
I have yet to find an art shop as cool as Fred Aldous in London but maybe I haven't really tried hard enough. Anyway, this place is seriously awesome. (Side note: I've been using this word far too much, suggestions on a better word maybe? Please?) It's full of fun crafty things and two vintage chemical photo booths - one colour and one black and white. The sister and I opted for the B&W and unsurprisingly, I pulled mugshot faces in all four. Double chins galore.
