#blackouttuesday

Oh hello, June, where did you come from?  Seriously how is it June already? I'm going to try and make the most of summer this year - despite everything else being rubbish. I'm going to enjoy myself and have fun in the sun. Sound like a good plan, doesn't it? ⠀

Oh hello, June, where did...

I must admit that I did get bored with balcony/mirror outfit pictures and wanted a more nature/organic photos backdrop. Well now summer is right around the corner, and the sun is indeed shining, and with news that lockdown resections are now easing, I now thought it was the perfect opportunity to go out into the wood and show you this floral Zara dress.⠀
I brought this dress at the very beginning of this year and was keen to show you guys this as I think it a lovely summer dress to wear, plus, I also thought it would go nicely with my red hat.⠀
For someone who has been cooped up, I must admit that it was nice to go into my local woodland and to walk around for an afternoon. I think it was also lovely for Richard, my husband, to pick up his camera again and to take some photos. The whole pandemic has put a pause on his professional photographer profession, and he hasn’t needed to use his camera much.⠀
It was lovely to put on a dress and to make myself look a little presentable. It got me out of my loungewear for an afternoon. The experience made me feel a little more like myself, and it put me in a good mood. As much as I like comfy loungewear, I’m still someone who wants to dress up.⠀
I’m hoping I can go out more this summer, of course still observing the social distancing rule, and doing more outdoor outfit photos. I’m also hoping this summer to wear more of my summer outfit and to feel more like myself.⠀

Usually, when I do an outfit post or picture, I like to dress up and show you some pretty dress. But this time I thought I would show you a few of my casual wear and what I wear on a day to day basis. I must admit, as much as I love to dress up, I wouldn't exactly go to Tesco in them. So on a day to day basis, I'm usually in jeans and a top. ⠀

If I were to describe my style, it would be summed up in two words: quirky and fun. I'm sure you realise by now I don't like boring black fashion – I do fun, bright, colourful style. Case in point is this Collectif watermelon dress. You can't get more quirky and fun fashion than this, can you?⠀
I like my clothes to reflect a lot of my personality, eternally youthful while also quirky and fun. Yup, that pretty much summed up me. The saying, you are who you are by the clothes you wear, really does hold up with me.⠀
I'm still that little girl who had a dressing up box as a child and would play dress-up; now I just have a wardrobe filled with more clothes than I could ever need as my dressing up box. I still like to have fun with my clothes, and I haven't lost that childhood wonder about clothes. And I don't think I ever will.⠀
Overall, what I'm saying is that this Collectif watermelon dress reflects who I am as a person and also my style. I also believe it represents how fashion shouldn't be all serious; it should be fun and should put a smile on a person's face.⠀

Federal Café Manchester

I had the opportunity to spend 24 hours in Manchester recently. When I got there, the first order of the day was breakfast – so I went to Federal café Manchester.

Yes, Richard recently had a little bit of work up in Manchester and occasionally, he can bring me along – not to work – but to explore the surrounding town. Which was the case this time around, where he had some work in the morning, while I went off and explored the town.

I have never been to Manchester before, admittedly I never really been up north before. With me living in London it more accessible to travel around the south part of England then travelling up north.

Anyway, Manchester has always been on my list of places to visit, so I was not going to turn it down. I will get more into Manchester and what I got up to with my next post.

But today I wanted to show you guys a nice little café I found while up there.

We got to Manchester late in the evening and stayed the night at a Travelodge. In the morning, while Richard went off to do some work, my first job was to find breakfast.

This was how I found the Federal café. A cosy little café tucked into a corner of Manchester shopping district, that served a wide variety of breakfast.

I sat down and ordered myself a basic breakfast – banana bread. Recently, I have been craving banana bread so badly; I keep meaning to make my own.  But for now, I satisfied my craving by having Federal café banana bread.

In all honesty, this was the nicest banana bread I have ever tasted. To spread on the banana bread was vanilla butter and the two just complimented each other well.  I was in food heaven.

Sitting in Federal café was a cosy, relaxed atmosphere and I enjoyed slowly eating my banana bread while looking out of the window watching people rushing by. An excellent way to start the morning.

Eventually, I finished my banana bread and decided it was time to start my time exploring the town of Manchester.

If you ever happen to be in Manchester and want somewhere that does breakfast or maybe want a rest from exploring the town; then I highly recommend Federal café. I know if I ever get the chance to go back to Manchester, I know where my first stop will be.

    Oh, how cool you have been in Manchester! I was able to work in this city but then finally decided against it 🙂 The cafe looks beautiful!
