Pink Gin & Green Leaves

This weekend's weather has been surprisingly delicious, with both days seeing an enviable amount of sunshine and blue sky. We woke up relatively early this morning so decided to make the most of the weather and head over to Yorkshire Sculpture Park, one of our favourite places to spend a sunny day and soak up a bit of culture. 

After easily getting to 10,000 steps (an almost impossible task during the week thanks to office lyf) we've now settled on the sofa listening to Joe's purchases from Record Store Day, basking in the sunshine that is streaming through our bay windows, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to crack out this month's Gin Explorer box to wind down before what is likely to be a mad last week at work before we head to Canada.

Tweet Eats: The Old Wellington, Manchester

The first rule of Sunday Lunch Club is that you do talk about Sunday Lunch Club. Well, it's not technically an official club but every month or so myself, Rebecca and Laura meet up and try out a different roast in Manchester. Our plan is to find the best one in the city but it's also an excuse to sped hours chatting and eating, one of our favourite hobbies.

Last weekend we put The Old Wellington to the test after they invited us in to give it a whirl. I'd been to The Old Wellington plenty of times before, but had never actually been inside thanks to their suntrap of a beer garden that they share with Oyster Bar, so I was really intrigued to see what the food would be like. We also welcomed a new member to Sunday Lunch Club as Kate joined us for the first time!

Five Trends to Invest In this Season

I’m in the midst of a spending ban. Thanks to a new mortgage, new car and trip to Canada at the end of the month, I’m watching every penny I spend. It however seems to have made me crave shopping and, given the change of seasons, desire an entirely new wardrobe. Sigh.

I do have a little bit of money put aside to treat myself to some new bits and pieces for our trip to Canada, but I want to be wise with what I buy and invest in quality pieces that will effortlessly transition from season to season.

With a little help from The Style Guide on Farfetch, I’ve picked out 5 key trends to buy into now that will see you through until the end of the year. Indulge me, I’m essentially writing out a shopping list and rationalising each purchase.

Natural and Organic Beauty Haul at Holland & Barrett

With the change of season comes the need to shake up my skincare routine, what was working for me last month isn't with the warmer, dryer weather. As if by magic, Holland & Barrett perfectly timed their new Manchester Market Street store opening with my need to discover new skincare and I dove in head first.

I know what you're thinking, aren't Holland & Barrett all about natural alternatives and health supplements? Well, yes they are but they are also taking the natural and organic beauty market by storm. Their new store has a huge beauty department and every brand that's stocked there is (mostly) natural and/or organic. We headed down to the store opening and were taken aback by the sheer amount of choice, if you haven't been in yet, head down to Market Street and experience it for yourself.

A Mini Desk Tour

I'm going to be honest, I am not a naturally tidy person. I try my best to keep everything in order but it's more of an organised chaos than anything else, basically I like things and don't have a lot of time so the things end up everywhere.

But, there's one place that always has to be tidy. My desk at work always needs to be in order otherwise I get a little bit stressed out, which is not productive at all! I recently started a new role at work which means a fresh, new, bigger desk and an opportunity to create a calming work space so I thought I'd give you a little tour before I cover it in forms and products!
