Tweet Eats: 19 Cafe Bar, Manchester

Manchester is good at a lot of things, brunch is definitely one of them. The city is full of cafes and restaurants with an incredible brunch offering, from the fluffiest pancakes you've ever seen at Evelyn's to the biggest pile of avocado toast at Trof.

A few weeks ago my friend Naomi and I were invited to try out the brunch menu at 19 Cafe Bar. An independent coffee shop on the edge of the Northern Quarter that serves coffee (obv), brunch, lunch, cakes and cocktails, 19 Cafe Bar has all of the goodness on offer.

Our Houseplants: A Tour

I am a self confessed crazy plant lady. There's something about greenery that calls to me, which in turn makes me pillage B&Q and fill our house with plants... I'm not sure Joe is as keen as I am but that's totally fine.

Inspired by Emma Hill's recent home tour and houseplant Instagram story tour, I've put together a few snaps of the plants in our house to give you a bit of an insight into our leafy friends.

Our living room has the highest concentration of plant life, I've covered pretty much every available surface including the mantlepiece, fireplace and the bay window.

The Glow: Summer Beauty Favourites

I generally feel like I look my best when I'm on holiday, but it's actually when I wear the least make up. There's something about that holiday glow, whether it's the relaxation and happiness or the lack of work stress and addition of fresh air, that makes you look like the best version of yourself. This summer I think I've finally found the perfect combination of make up to have that glow all season. It started with an evening look I did for dinner one night when Joe and I went to Majorca and it's pretty much been my go to every day make up look, minus the red lippy unless I'm feeling sassy of course. It's simple, subtle, doesn't use too many different products and you can build it up or down to suit you. Here are a few of my favourite summer beauty essentials.

The Second Trimester: My Experience

Somehow the second trimester seems to have flown by and we're already into our third, it feels like it has gone SO quickly! In that time our little babe has grown from the size of a lemon to the size of a lettuce, I'm trying not to think about the impending watermelon...

Before it gets ahead of me and I have an 18 year old on my hands, I thought I'd write down a few things about how I've felt in the second trimester as well as a few tips for any expectant mamas heading into the second trimester at the moment.

How I've been feeling

The second trimester for me has been pretty lovely to be honest, it's gone really quickly and we haven't really had any complications save for a couple of trips to the hospital (more on that further down). I've had my energy back and have really enjoyed seeing the bump grow and not just looking like I've had a massive lunch! Thankfully I haven't had too much to complain about, there's been a few emotional days (soz Joe) and a few headaches but that's going to happen when your body is about 95% hormones.

9 Interior Instagram Accounts to Follow

With all the house projects and DIY that we've been partaking in recently my Instagram has been filling up with interior and renovation accounts. I love getting a daily dose of inspiration so thought I'd share a few of my favourites. One of my favourite hashtags to follow is #myhousethismonth where there's a daily theme so if you're on the lookout for some more new accounts to follow, I'd definitely recommend having a gander.

I've included accounts with a big following, a few with a small following, some local to Manchester, some that are more lifestyle and some that are designers so hopefully there's a good mixture in there for what you're looking for.
