There's No Place Like... Home Sweet Home

As you could probably tell from my Northern Quarter post, I am absolutely loving living in Manchester and I have found soooo many new fave places to go… not only because it’s got crazy beautiful views or because there is SO much to do there, but also because of the oh so many lush places to eat at! But before I going ramble on about every single one of my favourite places to eat, I'll talk about one I've been to recently that I absolute lurveee and it's called "Home Sweet Home".

Each time I've been I instantly fall more in love with the place! Just everything about it, the drinks, food, decor, music and cakes, what more could you want. First time I went for brunch and had the best pancakes I've ever had, but oh no, these were not just any pancakes, they were topped with bacon, scrambled eggs, blueberries with… and wait for it…syrup drizzled all over. I was in heaven.

Other few times I have been, it has been either for lunch or dinner and ohh em gee the menu just keeps getting better and better. I have had tried to vary what I have chosen to eat, first time I went for the classic nachos which were super cheesy and had the best guacamole I have ever tasted! Second I felt a little more adventurous going for the BBQ pulled pork burrito and I was so fricking tasty I couldn't finish it (which I was very annoyed about) :( Plus to add that little extra they have some of the best ranged cocktails, from a sweet fruity twist to original butterbeer and their build your own G&T option which is perfect. Since it’s SOO close to summer now and as our evenings are brightening up it is such a lovely place to sit in their G&T garden with the sunshine beating down on you, BLISS!!

So guys, seriously, if you are ever in Manchester and around either Northern Quarter or Deansgate take a trip to the "Home Sweet Home" and you will not be disappointed. The staff are amazing, the food is perfect and the atmosphere is super lovely.

Experiences, Not Things!*

I've been fortunate enough to have partnered up with Eventbrite to help support and promote their GOMO: Going Out More Often campaign and this year they're continuing it with the trend, Experiences, Not Things!

I am a believer of the fact that us millennials will always remember the good times we had with friends and loved ones instead of stupid impulse buys from shopping thinking we need a new pair of shoes when in reality we don't (ha)! For this post, I am going to make my bucket list and plans that I have for over summer to show that buying more experiences creates so many more memories than materialistic things.

Sooooo, I've decided this year is the year that I want to fill full of memories, experiences and events instead material things. Where are you planning on adventuring to in 2017? Here's my filled list of upcoming things I have to enjoy and others I'd love to happen...

♡ Jax Jones at the end of DEADLINE week
♡ Summer holiday to Greece with my family :)
♡ Seeing The Vamps (twice bc I'm such a fangirl)
♡ Taking Mum to see Robbie Williams
♡ My 19th Birthday celebrations
♡ The excitement and stress of moving into my second-year house!!
♡ Jess Glynne at the Races with family friends
♡ Little Mix summer show
♡ Creamfields 

and my dream plans would be...

♡ Spontaneous city day trips or breaks away 
♡ Sunny days sat in the park and beer gardens with friends
♡ A road trip to the beach for ice cream on a sunny day
♡ Getting out more with my camera and capturing the moments that are often missed 
♡ Exploring new places with a bunch of friends and making the best memories
♡ Trying new foods and not sticking to what I usually love and go for 

Let's encourage others to focus more on making memories and to have more experiences over materialistic things this year!

Chocolate Salted Popcorn

There's nothing more I love than having nights in, especially the ones that involve films, food, sitting your pyjamas with no makeup on and even more food!! I absolute lurveeee a sweet treat and I'm not going to lie I do like a quick fix of chocolate now and then and POPCORN is the perfect tasty treat for those movie nights in.

Recently I have been venturing with trying new, different recipes and who'd have thought that dark chocolate and salty popcorn would be the perfect snack for these types of night. You bet, the sweet dark choc mixed with salty popcorn is just to die for mmmm!!


You will need:
- One large bar of dark chocolate chopped into tiny pieces.
- A few large pinches of salt
- Microwave popcorn kernels

Let's get making...

Step one: Put the microwave popcorn bag in the microwave and wait for them to pop!! But keep an eye on it otherwise if they over cook they burn and smell awful :( Give them a few minutes to pop away!

Step two: Take them out of the microwave and the bag, pour the popcorn into a bowl big enough for your sweet treat!

Step three: Pour your chocolate onto the popcorn when still warm, a bit at a time, mixing it thoroughly whilst doing so. Do the same with your salt, and keep on mixing so it spreads evenly!

And TA-DAH!! You've got the perfect combo for such a quick easy snack for those evenings in.
