Tweet Eats: Brunch at Trof, Manchester

I'm on a mission, and it's a delicious one. My quest is to find the best brunch in Manchester, and so far, Trof in the Northern Quarter is winning.

We've been before for breakfast but we'd never sampled anything more than a full English (mostly because the sausages are spot on), but this time we had a little longer to spare so thought we'd explore the menu further. The menu is kind of incredible, it's a list of food that could cure a hangover, all comforting and hearty.

Brunette to Balayage

My hair is ever changing, I see it as an accessory that I can change whenever I like, it grows back after all! In the past I've had my head shaved, cropped into a pixie cut and everything in between but recently I've stuck to mid length, brunette with a heavy fringe. It was about time to mix it up a little so when Nicky Clarke got in touch to see if I'd like to experiment with colour in their Manchester salon, I took the plunge.

I've experimented with a dodgy home ombre kit in the past but apart from that, I've never experimented with colour. Because my hair is naturally so dark, I've always been a bit scared of damaging it with bleach, which means no colour! But, I've been intrigued by balayage since last year so I thought it was time to try something a little different.

Getting Fit for Summer

As much as I'd rather be sitting on the sofa with a glass of wine and a slice of cake, I've been dragging my rather sizable behind to the gym and ditching the wine in favour of heading to the gym four times a week and a low calorie diet. Why? We're going on holiday next weekend and a few weeks ago I was feeling like a chubby sausage.

I've obviously not made a huge amount of progress with weight loss (I have shed a few pounds though so every little helps!) but I feel 100% more comfortable with my body, full of energy and healthier on the inside, just down to a few life changes over a short period of time. It's not the physical changes that make a difference, I'm sure they will as I lose more weight but it's more the knowledge that I'm taking steps to get healthier that is giving me back the confidence I'd lost.

Jet Set

After what seems like minutes but has actually been weeks, the time has come to start packing for our holiday! We're heading to Essaouira in Morocco and I cannot wait for a bit of rest and relaxation, but before that lies just over a week of mad prep at work and the inevitable last minute packing. I'm determined not to do what I usually do and have already made a start on collecting pieces together to make sure we're a little more prepared.

Tweet Eats: Wahaca, Manchester Corn Exchange

Mexican food is my guilty pleasure, there's something ever so moreish about the spicy deliciousness that makes it the ultimate comfort food. Wahaca is one of my favourite places to pop into for a hit of Mexican food (and the odd shot of tequila of course), and now there's a new one open in the Corn Exchange in Manchester, it may just have to become a more regular occurrence.

We were invited down to try out the new Spring Specials - the slow cooked lamb shoulder taco and the Crispy Prawn taco. Unfortunately the prawn was sold out (oh no, another reason to go back again soon...) but we ordered the lamb taco along with a Wahaca Introduction selection to share to give us a taste of the signature dishes.
