Mancs Musings...

Last weekend I had the best weekend in Manchester with one of my favourite ladies. She has been at uni there for three years, and this is her final couple of months and I've never visited her! Craziness. It's because she always comes back to London to see family and friends and I went to uni in London so I never really felt like I needed to. 

But I put it on my 2014 to-do list and, by George, when I have a list of sh*t to do, I will get stuff done. so off I trotted up North, weekend wheelie bag in hand, and boy did I have a lovely weekend. 

Firstly, the weather? Spring finally sprung and I got to wear my favourite sunglasses as we walked the through town and into the Northern Quarter. I could talk about what we crammed into my short stay, but I thought telling you about two of my favourite things. 

1. Teacup Kitchen - This is the cutest little cafe-come-bakery. Nadia and I both had the red velvet cake as to not get cake envy (literally the worst), but if (when) I go back I definitely want to try the lemon cake. And the pistachio cake. And the rainbow cake. ALL THE CAKE.

2. The Best Stationary Shop I've Ever Stepped Foot In - ... I don't know the name. REAL helpful Keeks, I know. It's in the Northern Quarter though, which isn't huge, you'll find it, trust me. This shop was deceivingly small-looking from outside, but Nadia loves stationary and she knows I love stationary so I trusted her and followed her in... And Oh Wow. If you're a real stationary fan and live in London you'll know about the Paperchase on Tottenham Court Road (and if you don't - get yourself there immediately!), this was kind of like an organic, indepedent version of that. With the best paper selection  ever. Nadia and I got a tad excited about the variety of tracing paper (remember tracing paper?). 

I had such a fab time in Mancs and I can't wait to go back again at some point! 

Love Keeks xo
