Rose Champagne.

Last week I was invited along to Rookery Hall Hotel & Spa in Cheshire by Hand Picked Hotels, to experience their new ELEMIS Rose Champagne Spa Day. Marking 15 years of partnership between Hand Picked Hotels and luxury skincare brand ELEMIS, the new Rose Champagne Spa Day celebrates the launch of ELEMIS’ new Rose Micro Serum; a dual-phase formula using unique oil-in-serum technology, and containing over 7,000 rose micro-droplets, to deliver optimal hydration.    Specifically designed to recharge and refresh,

Little Italy in Alty.

Cold winter nights always have me craving comfort food and —bar shepherds’ pie and apple crumble— pizza and roast chicken are both high up there on the comfort charts for me! So when I was invited along for a review meal at one of Altrincham’s most popular Italian restaurants, Tre Ciccio, I was instantly sold on two of their signature dishes: traditional Neopolitan pizza (the best in the city I’d been told!) and pollo scucchiato – marinated slow roasted chicken

From Peru, with love.

You are beautiful.

We all deserve a little bit of pampering every now and then. There was a time when I’d have considered a trip to a beauty salon both a little indulgent, and generally reserved exclusively for Towie-wannabes. I think I’d just not come across the right salon before. And now, now I most definitely have!   Smuk is a new breed of salon championing beauty, inside and out, which doesn’t just apply to people but the whole salon experience, from the

Sunset vibes.

Welcome to your new favourite beach bar in Manchester.  Yes, you read that right.   Describing itself as “a stylish but laid back slice of modern Australian life, down-under in Manchester,” Australasia has always been a port-of-call on a grey day for an injection of sunset coast vibes, but earlier this month their new terrace bar Sunset opened and immediately set the local Instagram community alight.   The spectacular decor errs on just the right side of a frothy bubblegum
