The Printworks in Manchester is somewhere that everyone who lives in the city has heard of. Based in the heart of Manchester, the Printworks is handily located right next to The Arndale shopping centre, and bang in the middle of Victoria train station and Shudehill tram stop – making it super accessible for locals and tourists alike. A huge venue housing a range of restaurants, bars, clubs, a cinema and even a gym – The Printworks was once ‘Withy Grove Printing House’, printing newspapers for over 100 years until it closed in 1985. Lying dormant for over 10 years, the 1996 bomb attack in the city centre spurred on a redevelopment process for the area, and The Printworks was opened in 2000 to the public.Read More
As the summer months really start to kick in, the bars of Manchester begin to thrive with everyone wanting to get out and about in the warmer weather. There chilly and wet evenings that once encouraged the party goers to stay at home with a pizza and a bottle of wine are finally dwindling, and people make the effort to dress up without the fear of a ruined outfit or hairstyle.
One of the new nights recently introduced to Manchester is ‘Limitless’ at the Milton Club, and I was lucky enough to be invited to the launch night to preview it for myself.
In Manchester city centre, you are never too far from a new bar or restaurant, and recently they seem to be popping up here, there and everywhere – just in time for the summer months when every drop of sun is an excuse to get out and about. One of my favourite new spots in the city is the Corn Exchange. Read More
I was very excited this week to be invited to the launch of the Style Station by The Red Angel Hair Company. A great concept I had seen pop up on social media recently, where the idea is that you nip in for a stylish yet quick and super affordable hair style – ideal for nights out, for lazy days where you just need someone else to style your hair, or for if you are fancying something a little bit different.
I think it’s pretty clear to say that marble is the current ‘in’ print. There is something just so clean and sophisticated about it – you will probably have noticed it popping up more and more, especially on the likes of social media. In fact, Instagram is probably to thank for so many people loving this print, with the perfect flat-lays and crisp, bright-white marble accessories. These are most definitely what caught my eye.
To the end of a great year, and to the beginning of an even better one.
The only thing exciting about peeling out of your cosy warm bed on a freezing winter’s day is the excitement of a little treat in the advent calendar.
