A dog’s day out.

One of the things I’ve come to love most about Manchester is just how dog friendly a city it is! I noticed it long before little Paco came into our lives. The number of small dogs nestled at the feet of their owners in accomodating coffee shops, riding the tram, or taking a stroll along New Islington Marina on their way to the dog park. As a city with more and more pet-friendly apartments (and hotels!) popping up all around,

Eating my way round town.

I think I’ve made eating my way around Manchester’s vast and extensive selection of cafés and restaurants my ultimate mission in life..! In putting together this round-up I’ve been scrolling back through my photostream, vividly recalling each fabulous meal (both the food and the company!), which can only really be a validation of why I feel compelled (like every other milennial, lol) to take snaps of my food before eating.   I’m going to put together a few meal-specific round-ups

Leading light.

I’ve shared my love of design studio Nina+Co’s stunning interior and ceramic works before. So I was delighted when she got in touch this week to alert me to her latest venture: a new social enterprise café, Luminary Bakery. Located on a quiet back street in London’s Stoke Newington, the venture is in collaboration with local community charity, Kahaila Women’s Projects. With the kitchen already operating successfully as a wholesale bakery, supplying many London external cafés and businesses, the community

Carry on working

i’m in the process of packing up my home ready for our eviction, and while my office area is definitely going to be the last space i dismantle, working surrounded by immense piles of clutter – and the clank, clank, clank of workmen on the scaffolding outside – is proving to be highly demotivating! thankfully, the beauty of blogging – or any contemporary business built to run online – is that you really can work from anywhere these days! in the
