Box Roses – The new way to receive flowers

December 24, 2016

This year I was lucky enough to be treated to a beautiful box of roses for Christmas from my boyfriend. I’d seen these types of roses on Instagram a lot and had been wanting some for a while!

The roses arrived next day delivery in a large box with a pretty ribbon on the top. Inside the box each rose had it’s own little water tube so you don’t have to remove them they can stay in the box and can be placed anywhere around your home they look really pretty on a sideboard or on a coffee table.

I was really impressed with the flowers so wanted to share a few pictures with you all.


Getting a little arty with the camera 🙂

The roses lasted around a week and are from LXIX. I think these make a perfect Christmas gift of Valentines day present.

The new kid on the block: Refinery Manchester Spinningfields

December 5, 2016

We’ve had quite a few restaurants /bars opening in Manchester recently first Menagerie and now Refinery which has just opened in the XYZ building in Spinningfields.  It’s great to see more business opening towards the bottom end of Spinningfields towards Salford, as this is where I live and it’s fastly becoming a very exciting area 🙂

I’d been waiting for Refinery to open and had seen some of the press images of the interior on the website and it did not disappoint. The decor is beautiful it’s rustic yet modern, it’s been so nicely done. It’s how I’d love my home to look! I’d been checking out the menu before I went and they have a really great choice of food available. They do breakfasts which sound lovely as well as lots of staple classics like burgers and fish and chips a swell as steaks (menu linked) if you fancy having a look.

I’ve not been out for a Sunday roast in Manchester for ages so I decided to book in with my sidekick for a meal last night. We decided to go for Sourdough bread with salted butter for starters (£4.95) and both got beef roast (£17) for mains. I wouldn’t usually spend £17 for a Sunday roast and was hoping the portion sizes wouldn’t be tiny and boy I did not need to worry.

The sourdough bread was delicious… and the main was even better. Normally when you go for a Sunday roast you get 2 thin slices of beef. This was two very thick perfectly done slices of beef. They did not skimp out on the portion sizes at all- there was so much veg and potatoes and also you’re own big pot of gravy. I ate as much as I possibly could and couldn’t finish the plate. My boyfriend who’s a PT and forever hungry also couldn’t finish the plate and thats a pretty impossible sighting. I think that’s the first time I’ve ever seen him really struggle!!

I’m even pretty picky about my soda and lime (never seem to add enough lime and never add fresh limes) and they got that absolutely spot on.

The bar area also looks very nice and I’m looking forward to stopping by on a Saturday night which I’ll try and do soon! The staff were also extremely friendly and attentive which was ace.

Massive thumbs up from me and well worth waiting for in my opinion. It’s great to leave a restaurant feeling full and entirely happy with every bit of the experience 🙂

Also for anyone who might think this is sponsored it’s definitely not.. they didn’t have any idea I was a blogger when I went in either, as I don’t really like saying it… This is 100% my opinion and my money paying for it.
