A Weekend In Manchester with Mercure

The weekend before Christmas, I was invited along to Manchester by the lovely people at Talented Talkers and Mercure to take part in their #ExperienceMercure Campaign. Of course, I said yes and invited Hayley along for the ride. A little warning that this post is pretty festive for mid-January! First stop after arriving at Manchester Piccadilly was obviously for food. We had a few recommendations about checking out The Northern Quarter and decided on one of my favourite places; Almost Famous (my Leeds AF review).

Award season has rolled around in Hollywood and it all kicked off with the 74th Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. For the past 5 years, I’ve covered all the Awards and the Met Gala showcasing my favourite looks from the red carpet as this year is no different. The Golden Globes is known as ‘the fun one’ so I was expecting some outlandish and fun looks but I everyone kept it pretty safe. As always, I was immediately drawn to the super sparkly numbers with Emma Stone looking radiant in Valentino and Naomie Harris in Armani…

AC Hotel by Marriott, Birmingham

Last month, I headed down to Birmingham for a couple of days to see Hayley, visit the Christmas Market and also go to the Clothes Show. If you are a new reader, I actually used to live in Birmingham whilst I was at University so it was quite lovely to visit. The city has changed so much in the past 18 months, it seems that the moment I left everything changed.One of the new additions is the AC Hotel by Marriott which is located canalside in The Mailbox (pictured below). I arrived into the city around lunchtime. I was a little…
