Merci Maman Jewellery

Merci maman – what does it mean? Literally it means “thanks Mum” and in terms of jewellery, it means simply stunning. I’m a mum, I love jewellery and I now own two pieces from the wonderful Merci Maman Boutique.

My first is the tree of life bracelet, which is rose gold plated and is one of my favourite pieces of jewellery and other than my engagement ring, is the one piece that gets commented on every time I wear it. It’s very unique, chic and wearable. I had mine personalised with some words that mean something to me and cherish it dearly.

My second piece is a necklace, plated in three colours of gold and it’s brightened up these cold, wintery days we’re having…Continue reading

I figured that I might as well go full throttle and do a full day of lessons, in the hope that by the time I left, I’d be able to ski!Continue reading

Sapporo Teppanyaki Manchester

Last week I had some of the best sushi I’ve eaten in a long time…and it wasn’t in a sushi restaurant, oh no…it was at Sapporo Teppanyaki in Manchester.

Yes, Sapporo Teppanyaki is Japanese food, but it’s not necessarily somewhere you’d think of going for just sushi, is it? Well it wasn’t for me anyway.

So me and hubby had a rare mid-week lunch date, sans baby and boy did we make the most of it! We ate sushi till our hearts’ content. Continue reading
