A final brunch at Tooting Market before jumping aboard the train back to my not-so-new-hometown. It’s been a blast in London this week, but boy o’ boy am I missing my Mcr. I think I might be a fully fledged Northerner now.. 🙊 https://ift.tt/2MMKAN2

Morning coffee and quiet contemplation, reflecting on all of the excitement and wonder of yesterday’s @blogtacular conference. Standing up on a stage, under bright lights and all mic’d up in front of a huuuge room of bloggers all eager to hear our pearls of wisdom, was immensely daunting and not something I ever thought I’d be capable of doing without making a huge tit of myself but looking back I’m even tempted to say that I enjoyed it a little.. Thanks so much to everyone who came and supported @bemorehive on our first out-in-the-wild adventure (you were amazing!) and to my little rockstar of a co-founder @jessicaasims, who really does deserve all of the plaudits today. The definition of a SUPER WOMAN 👏🏼💪🏼😘 https://ift.tt/2HWlat0

Hump day. Nothing a fresh pot of coffee and a cheeky nibble of chocolate won’t solve, eh? Especially when coffee is served in my beauuutiful new yellow glass coffee press by Matias Moellenbach from @object_style.. ✨ https://ift.tt/2sJOL3i

Monday mornings aren’t so bad when you have a comfortable ergonomic home office chair to recline in! I’m so in love with my new @humanscalehq Liberty Task chair designed by Niels Diffrient: an intelligent mesh task chair engineered to provide automatic lumbar support, as well offering simplicity and complete ease of use. You can see how I’ve incorporated the chair into the soft Cali vibes of my home office space over on the blog now (link in bio). #DesignForHumans [gifted product] https://ift.tt/2HiCaZZ

Saturday morning magic ✨ I’ve just whipped up a loaf of banana bread with some verrrry ripe bananas I’d had hanging about, and now plan to devour several slices whilst watching YouTube vids. Anyone have any recommendations for great vloggers to be looking out for? I’ve got the usual suspects but would be fab to discover more channels with visually creative content, beyond just documenting their week in pieces to camera.. (as fab as that can be!) Lemme know who you’re loving just now! https://ift.tt/2JnUiXy

I’ve been chatting with Elly and Harry of @formlifestylestore over on the blog (link in bio), as they reveal some of their favourite spots in Ancoats and the NQ. So many great places to discover (as well as their gorgeous store if you’ve not yet visited!) #seemymcr https://ift.tt/2snzo0e

These sunny days in the city really are making my heart soar, and it is oh so wonderful to pull back the blinds each morning to be met, yet again, by soft sunlight flooding in! These brilliantly bright Manchester skies have called for me to step up my sun protection regime lately, and this weekend I’ve been slathering on Plant Stem Cell Antioxidant Sunscreen in SPF30 by @madaracosmetics, loaded with free radicals, raspberry seed oil and vitamin E. I love the zesty fragrance of this silky cream — which instantly transports me to citrus groves in the Italian countryside — and the silky light-as-air finish. I’ve also been sent a tube of their Hyaluronic Anti-Pollution CC cream, with SPF15 and a little smidge touch of colour, which I’m excited to test out later in the week. Designed to shield the skin from the urban toxins and heavy metals that clog pores and damage and inflame skin, it promises to reduce dullness and red spots, and promote a clear complexion — I shall report back soon!

Hurrah, my OOO is firmly ON this week and I’m excited to be hopping aboard a train to a new city and spending time exploring, sightseeing, cafe-hopping and recharging. See y’all soon x https://ift.tt/2rET7be

Apparently plans are afoot to give Hilton House in the NQ a contemporary facelift, but I can’t help but be charmed by the current, slightly shabby, facade of this Richard Seifert-designed building, especially when glistening in the early morning sun.. ✨ https://ift.tt/2G4lNzN

Back again for allll the morning cawfee with @unfoldtheday — can’t think of a better way to start the day! @hamptonandvouis ☕️ https://ift.tt/2KOGlQk

Starting the day with iced coffee and admiring my fave bank holiday purchase so far: this sweet little palm tree print tray from @object_style. Later I’m looking forward to basking in the sunshine some more, and catching up with magical moonbeam @wildshe_ 💫✨ https://ift.tt/2KGTKKf

Finally iced coffee weather, wahoo! 😎 https://ift.tt/2rmDbei

It’s been another busy ol’ week, but it’s my excruciatingly slow home wifi connection that has been pushing my mental exhaustion levels to the limit the past few days.. nothing like major work deadlines and wifi speeds that resemble mid-90s dial-up to send your anxiety levels sky high! I’m definitely in need of a cup of @teapigs snooze tea and an early night tonight.. 😴 https://ift.tt/2Jx3IfH

Still buzzing for last night’s fab #creativesunhooked event with @me_and_orla, sharing her pearls of wisdom on all things Instagram. I was too busy chatting to take many snaps of the gorgeous venue (@porticolibrary) but one big take away from the event reiterated that wonderful quote from Haruki Murakami: “If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.” It’s so easy to think that your community on instagram is the only community on instagram, but if you allow yourself to fall down the rabbit hole of intriguing hashtags and location tags of places that interest you, you can find a whole new instaworld, doing things in entirely different ways, that you can learn from and be inspired by. And outside of these small squares, you can find inspiration in all kinds of offline places: in music, books, film, art, the natural world.. Right now, my biggest source of inspiration comes from wandering the streets of Manchester, sidestepping the city centre and turning down backstreets and alleys, keeping my eyes peeled for intrigue and letting my mind roam. For those wondering, this majestic spiral staircase can be found in @formlifestylestore, an oasis of calm on a gritty backstreet of the NQ, showcasing small independent makers who are making by hand on a small scale.. well worth seeking out for a dose of creative inspiration if you’re in the area! https://ift.tt/2HvCfKT

Can’t resist sunshine in the NQ! Doesn’t @snikarts’ Serenity look amazing today? 👀 ☀️ @citiesofhope https://ift.tt/2HOhBq1

It’s been a busy ol’ on-the-go week with trips out to Stoke-on-Trent and Ilkley for work, and I’m off again to Wales later, to climb Snowdon this weekend. But for now there is lovely light and a wonderful moment of peace in the flat.. which will last approximately 10 more mins before I’d better get stuck back in to work again.. 🙈🤣 Hope you manage to find a moment of calm in your day today too! https://ift.tt/2HhN9Yk

Most of my timeline are in Milan (or the Colorado desert) but honestly who needs that when it’s this sunny in the NQ by 8am! I’ve skipped Milan for the first time in four years, but if you’re missing some Milano Design in your feed, go follow my gals @enmajanepalin (for colour) @catesthill (for scandi-minimal) and @mad_about_the_house (for everything else). All of the design, none of the blisters.. #winning https://ift.tt/2J8GpZA

I definitely consume waaaay too much coffee throughout the working week, so this morning I decided to switch things up a little and try a @teapigs matcha turmeric latte whipped up with @rudehealth’s new tiger nut milk instead. A fun twist on that ol’Instagram fave, golden mylk, it’s a delicate blend of sweet and spicy, and the perfect accompaniment to a morning spent relaxing on the sofa, trying to ignore the rain falling steadily outdoors.. happy Saturday, my loves! https://ift.tt/2GKvgNx

The busiest of weekends on set shooting for an exciting new start-up means I would have loved to spend today cosied up under the covers recovering but alas, places to be, people to see — which equates to alllll the coffee! I’m excited to be on the @weareunhooked #influencersunhooked panel tonight at the Anthony Burgess Foundation in Manchester, discussing brand collaborations with fellow bloggers @poutinginheels @amumtrackmind and @_hollygoeslightly. Hopefully see some of you there! http://ift.tt/2FS7SOx

What’s this? A cocktail post on a Friday morning??! I’m werk werk werking all weekend so it was wonderful to have a mini “Friday eve” out last night with @rebeccacohen_, checking out the new @cowhollowhotel in the NQ. Gorrrgeous West Coast vibes throughout, and an equally awesome cocktail menu to boot. We’ll definitely be back! http://ift.tt/2FJqtfI

I can think of no better way to celebrate my one-year-in-Manchester anniversary than spending the day dashing across the city, being whipped by snowstorms. I’m not kidding. Today’s crazy weather first illuminated, then darkened, then illuminated the city again, but every single moment I was awed by the beauty of this place I now call home.. I hope you’ve had a great snow day, whether tucked up safe and sound indoors, or outside embracing the big chill head on 🌬❄️ #beastfromtheeast http://ift.tt/2ETtddc

I’ve been enjoying all the glorious sunshine streaming into #thefabflat this weekend, safe in the knowledge that it’s minus degrees out there and the decision to hibernate indoors watching the footy was the right call.. 😏👍🏼 http://ift.tt/2BOzrbz

Still dreaming about brunch this week @milkteethcoffee: sweetcorn fritters with avocado, kasundi & lime.. 😋 http://ift.tt/2FrU8dc
