Sunday dinner at Home Sweet Home in the Northern Quarter, Manchester

Following today’s awesome photo shoot (more of that later), the girlies and I headed for a bite to eat. We opted for Home Sweet Home in the Northern Quarter, Manchester.

Perfect for a plateful of yummy grub, good portions and comfortable surroundings, Home Sweet Home is located on Edge Street (next to Common Bar) in the Northern Quarter. It has a comfortable, homely interior with nick-nacks on the walls and an eclectic mix of furniture. This seemed like the ideal spot for a girly dinner, washed down with a glass or two of Prosecco – and we chose well!

A Pinks Boutique Power Massage at City Spa Escapes, Manchester

Arriving at Quay House, Spinningfields for a Pinks Boutique Power Massage at City Spa Escapes, you would be forgiven for thinking you’ve turned up at the wrong place. This is because City Spa Escapes is located on the 2nd floor of what is essentially an office building in the wonderful location that is Spinningfields. However, as soon as you enter the spa, you lose all sense of that. There are 2 treatment rooms, both comfortable, warm and inviting, kitted-out with everything needed to provide a relaxing spa treatment.

I had opted for the Pinks Boutique Power Massage which promises a massage combining Eastern and Western techniques. It aims to soothe and relax aching muscles as well as cleansing your body and soul. A combination much needed for me a the moment! I’m in!

Party, Prosecco and Pink Ladies – A Hen do in Manchester

So this weekend I got to join in the celebrations of the gorgeous bride-to-be Kirsty, as we partied all weekend for her hen do in Manchester. The weekend of fun and frivolities started on Friday, straight after work, when we all met at the City Warehouse Apartments – our home for the next 2 days.

With the bride-to-be in the Penthouse Suite, we also took over a few of the rooms on the next floor down – it felt like we were back in Halls of Residence, running between rooms, giggling and sneaking along the corridors. So Friday was about getting to know each other over a drink (or ten!), having a laugh and sharing our memories of of Kirsty and Lee. There were a few silly hen games, an incredibly thoughtful trip down memory-lane courtesy of the bride’s sister Lynsey, and even a special, one-night-only, comeback appearance by none other than the Moggy Mols!

Bubbles were sipped, pizza was quaffed (much needed!) and there was a lot of dancing! Thank you Mr Robin Thicke…hey hey hey!
