These new days of sunshine we're getting (on and off here in the North, but still), are really getting me excited to whip out those pretty spring dresses and flounce around in a field somewhere - very The Sound Of Music, don't you think? 

As the sun showed it's face last week, I realised my current wardrobe was lacking that 'spring vibe' I was yearning for. All of my dresses were black, thick, winter pieces, and after seeing beautiful babes over on Instagram, WFH in their lovely white crochet midis, I was desperate for some spring midi dress action in my life too.



Luckily, Urban Outfitters came to my rescue. I was kindly *gifted a few new pieces by them to add to my wardrobe, and amongst those pieces was this amazing dress. I originally saw Chloe Robertson wearing this over on her Instagram and was immediately #influenced haha.

This is the Odilia Smocked Floral Midi Dress. It comes in two colours, the first being this lovely yellow, which I'm wearing here in this blog post, then the second being a beautiful blue. It's got a really gorgeous 'romantic' style to it - I love the flowy sleeves and the smocked detailing around the bust. It's the kind of thing you can dress up with a pair of heels and a cute little clutch bag, but also something that you can wear day-to-day with a pair of docs and a chunky cardigan.

On top of it just being a truly lovely dress, it's also incredibly comfy and easy to wear. It's so easy to throw on and feel put-together. Plus... guess what?... it has pockets! Now, if that doesn't just make this the all-round perfect dress, then I don't know what does.




Let me know if you've spotted any amazing spring dresses I should take a look at, and if you decide to pick this dress up yourself, tell me down in the comments!

All my love, keep safe ♥

Self care is a hot topic right now. Amongst everything that is going on in the world, it's really important that we're taking time for ourselves, looking after our bodies and cherishing ourselves in simple ways. It's so crucial that we're staying safe, staying clean and keeping up with those habits.

For me, I find pampering myself with nice products really helps me feel more human again. Normally, I tend to lose track of the last chance I had to give myself a bit of 'me' time, but lately I've been taking an hour or so out of the day to just do one little thing that makes me feel good; whether that's sifting through my nail polish collection and picking a lovely new colour to paint my nails with, or even just having a longer shower and (finally) shaving my legs. It's those small little things you can do to take care of yourself that make you feel more put together and ready to take on the day.

I mean, of course, 'self care' isn't all about applying face masks and sipping peppermint tea, there's a lot more that goes into it than that. It's important to look after ourselves mentally too, and as you'll know if you're an repeat-reader of this blog, that's a very significant topic for me. I hope you are all keeping well during this weird time and if any of you ever need someone to chat to, I'm here! *waves*




Despite that however, today I did want to talk to you more about the 'beauty' side of self care as I was recently sent an amazing PR parcel from Baylis and Harding!

Their Goodness Collection has been such a mood-lifter for me over the past week and has been a really lovely addition to my 'pamper' time. I was sent the collection in the gorgeous Rose & Geranium scent, and it truly does small amazing.

First up, there's the (ever so important right now) Hand Wash. It comes in a 500ml size, which is wonderful as it's bound to last a super long time, and is also very aesthetically pleasing to look at. It's a natural hand wash with organic extracts and is dermatologist approved (it's always great to have a stamp of approval from skin experts!). It lathers up perfectly too and leaves my hands feeling super soft and clean.

We then have the Bath Soak and Body Wash. These also come in a 500ml size (which come from 100% recycled materials) and combine the scent of rose and geranium with rich amber and top notes of zesty lemon. Again, these contain natural ingredients and organic extracts and are just an absolute dream to pamper yourself with in the bath/shower.

The Bath Soak can simply be poured into the bath, under warm running water, and voila! you've got yourself a little relaxing safe haven to finish off your day. It's always so nice to get away and escape to a bath and chill, isn't it?

All of these products are vegan too, which is amazing!



So, there we go, a little reminder to take care of yourselves during this time. Let me know what you think of these products or if there are any other Baylis & Harding things I should try!

As I write this on, what was supposed to be, my lazy Sunday afternoon (I'm a workaholic SOS), the sunshine is beaming through my window, I can hear birds singing bright songs to one another, and besides that, it all feels peacefully quiet. You see, this past week or two has really made me hone in those small little day-to-day things again. It was those simple things in life that made me begin my blog after all (hence the blog URL). I've missed taking time to look around me and notice things - really take in the world around me. Like, for example, this morning the sun was shining through my blinds SO beautifully, like a golden haze that had washed over my duvet covers and landed in the perfect spot, tickling my toes. It just prompted this sense of 'calm' within me and all I could think about was how magnificent it was.





I never really appreciated how simple and silent it is where I live before either, or that I have the ability to get outside, stretch my legs and breathe fresh air. It's so lovely to walk through quiet streets, occasionally passing a friendly neighbour (6ft gap between us, of course) and exchanging 'hello's. I think the world is always in this constant rush, that we forget that a simple 'hello', or a smile or two, can really make things feel a lot brighter.

I normally shun my hometown quite a bit too. I get fed up with the masses of fields and grass, hate that it's so far from the city and go crazy trying to avoid people from high school that I just can't be arsed to have that 'so what've you been doing with yourself?' chat with. But, lately, the love has come back. I'm cherishing the fact that I'm so out of the way here. I'm embracing the beauty of the fields and starting to adore the scenery that we're lucky to have.... (I am still avoiding high school acquaintances though haha).

It's weird to think back to a couple of weeks ago and where my mindset was at. I was so consumed by all of these things that now feel so irrelevant and unimportant.




I keep finding myself with scattered eyes as I try and take everything in around me. It's a wonderful feeling to just appreciate the beauty of a flower or the sound of someone's laugh. I mean, as airy fairy as it sounds, it's true. I love simple things like hearing the kettle boil as someone makes a brew, or my phone dinging with ringtone I set solely for Josh. I love flicking through magazines and seeing tones and colours that inspire me, or how pleasing it is to have ticks lined down my to-do list.

I hope this time spent in isolation leads me to looking through this new set of inspired eyes even once it's all over. I hope to remember that it's the small things in life that make me happy and that sometimes a simple walk round the corner can evoke that.

Bright Mornings, Quiet Walks, And Appreciating The Small Things

I'm now one full week into self-isolation, and things are slowly but surely getting easier, yet still a little weirder, by the day. I've found a routine (kind of), found some things to focus on, and am learning a lot about myself through these days spent alone - I'm finding that kind of wonderful.

Although each day tends to bring different emotions and different levels of motivation, I'm learning to just go with it and listen to my body. Whether that means I spend all day shooting content, throw myself into some exercise (a rarity, I'm very lazy) or I literally don't leave my bed for 12 hours a day, I'm realising that it's totally okay in these uncertain times.



I think there's a lot of pressure to be doing *something* right now. Instagram is full up of people with these new hobbies, shooting beautiful indoor imagery, or socializing on House Party or Animal Crossing, but sometimes, I just like to be alone and be doing sweet FA.

With all the emotions that have come with the current situation, the simple day-to-day things can feel overwhelming at times - even that daily allowance of outside time can feel draining. I think it's important that we remind each other to cut ourselves some slack, this is such a bizarre thing to be living through after all, and it's okay to sometimes feel like the only thing you can handle today is brushing your teeth.

Sure, it feels great to get up, make that to-do list, and get on with things as normal, but life right now truly isn't very normal. We're all cooped up with people 24/7 (who, of course we love, but are beginning to drive us crazy at times), and have been completely thrown off balance from our normal routines. It's okay if you take a day to do nothing, and it's okay to do not be doing what everyone else is doing.

This time is so useful for us to really hone in on ourselves and understand what we as individuals need. Spend some time to look after yourself - not everyday has to be a 'success', it can just be another ol' day in the diary.

Don't feel bad about feeling. We're all human. ♥

Doing Nothing... And That's Okay

"comparison is the thief of joy"



I think we can all agree that life right now is feeling, well, a little all over the place. Every morning I'm waking up to a different emotion, different level of motivation and different outlook, and whilst it's giving me an uneasy feeling a lot of the time, I'm slowly, but surely, getting there and finding my balance dealing with this whole thing.

I guess my life before this felt a little bit 'off-balance' anyway. I felt that I was really struggling to find my feet creatively, and I'd lost a big chunk of my love for writing, which felt incredibly unusual. But, weirdly, I'm finding this time at home to be doing me some good in that respect. Each day the sun seems to keep shining and I spot another bit of day-to-day life that inspires me to shoot or say something. I'm taking the time to figure out what I enjoy creating, what images I enjoy looking at and what kind of thing I want to share with my writing. I feel like a weight is slowly being lifted.

Anyway, regardless of my creative-self-doubt-whirlwind, today I wanted to chat to you about WFH - something which we've all been thrown into in a very surreal way. And, although I do work from home part time under normal circumstances, it's no longer my habit to be home every day anymore. It's definitely thrown a curve-ball into my routine. I'm normally 'on the move' somewhere, whether that's to go to work in Manchester, to grab a coffee with friends or to get my weekly dose of Josh hugs, so it does feel odd to be... going nowhere.

"even in the chaos, you are free to bloom"

However, despite how much my routine feels jumbled, the most important thing to me right now is that I, my loved ones, my friends and the whole world around me is keeping safe. At the end of the day, we're not being asked to do much besides sit at home and pretend every day is a Saturday, right?

Working from home for me has had a slow start. I've been dealing with a lot of anxiety, a lot of tears and panic, but there are small things day-to-day which have began to help with that.

I've found that making a list helps me feel productive and gives me purpose. I mean, it's no BIG NEWS that lists help with organisation, but in a time like this, they really are a godsend. I write one each morning, including simple things like a reminder to shower, or to go outside for my hour of exercise, but unlike my normal 'WFH' days, I don't put pressure on myself to complete them entirely. At the end of the day, I think we're living in such a heightened situation right now, and the last thing I need to make myself feel bad about is not taking a picture in a top, so I'm taking things at a slower pace and letting myself enjoy the creative process rather than stressing about everything on my list being ticked off.

I've also found that a routine with meals has been helpful. Being stuck inside all day can often lead me to bad old habits of binge eating so, getting in new routine with meals has 1. helped me nip the eating disorder voices in the bud a bit and 2. helped me add structure to my days again. I think it's incredibly easy to just eat when you're feeling bored, which is completely fine, but for a lot of us out there with EDs, it can definitely be a bit of a trigger.

As well as listing making and food, simply sitting in the garden to get some work done, rather than being cooped up inside has worked wonders for me. It's such a simple thing, but having a small change of scenery besides my 4 bedroom walls is really nice. That's also another reason I think it's important to get outside for a walk or some exercise when you can. Stretching my legs, looking at the world around me (mostly trees, dogs and the elderly where I live) and getting moving just gives me that 'refresh' that I sometimes just need to keep motivated and keep working.

Most of all, WFH has given a lot of time to reflect on and contemplate my work. As I mentioned at the start, it's been nice to take the time to understand what I really enjoy creating and know what brings me that creative buzz. It's also helped me to begin opening up more again, and showing myself more over on my Instagram and here in my writing too. It feels really nice to 'set myself free', so to speak, and just be myself again, void of any comparisons.

I love being open with you guys here (and over at @hollyrebeccawhite) on my little space of the internet and I hope to continue to keep it up from now on.

All my love to you all, keep safe ♥

Hello you lovely lot! How are we all doing? I, myself, have felt a little all over the place in all honesty. Life right now feels very surreal, and as much as I'm trying to take each day as it comes, I can't help but feel the heavy weight of anxiety on my shoulders.

However, I didn't want this post to be all 'doom and gloom', so I thought, in the spirit of staying inside and working from home, I'd share some outfits with you, shot from that familiar corner of my room, as always.



So, first up, let's talk dresses. I've been loving dresses recently and these two have been some recent additions to my wardrobe just in time for spring!

There's this lovely Primark polka dot number (photo number 1), which I actually picked up on a whim for a party one night and ended up falling in love with. The fit of it is just so perfect and flattering and I love the style around the neck/chest area. It's the perfect LBD that can be worn day or night and it was such a bargain too!

The second I have to share is this amazing floral dress from Neon Rose (*gifted). I love the pattern here - I don't normally go for florals but there's something about this print that I just couldn't resist. It's a little more colourful than my usual style too, but I thought the colours were really nice together and it really has me longing for summer days spent sipping cocktails in the sun.



Next up, tees and tops!

The first one I want to share with you is my new favourite tee from the NEW Sophia Rosemary X Joanie collection. Not only is Sophia one of the loveliest ladies I've met through blogging, she's also very good at creating amazing t-shirt collections and, boy oh boy, was I excited when this piece landed on my doorstep!

This is the Melanie tee and I just find it so easy to throw on and add a bit of 'something-something' to an outfit that would have usually been a bit more 'dulled down' by a white tee before hand.

You can check out the full collection HERE.

Second of all is this lovely top from H&M. I picked this up just before Christmas and have loved wearing it ever since. I really like the beige and black polka-dot pattern and the colours work really well in my wardrobe. The fit is really flattering too - I love it paired with some high waisted trousers!




Last of all, we have some new pieces I was kindly sent by Marks and Spencers (*gifted).

We have a couple more dresses here too, with the first one being this super simple, yet truly lovely, striped tee dress. And, yes people, it has pockets!! I've always loved a navy and white stripe combo, and this is just the perfect thing to style with a pair of white trainers and a blazer and be good-to-go.

The second dress is an amazing piece from Spring/Summer with a lightweight feel and dainty print. It's just a really easy throw-on piece that makes you look super put together. I love it paired with a pair of white heels and some gold jewellery - it just makes me feel so elegant!

Then, finally, these trousers! Oh, how I love these trousers! These fit like an absolute glove and are so flattering. I obviously love the navy colour too and can't believe how perfectly they pair with my vintage navy blazer - love love love!

Outfits From My Phone


Hello you lovely lot! How are we all doing? I, myself, have felt a little all over the place in all honesty. Life right now feels very surreal, and as much as I'm trying to take each day as it comes, I can't help but feel the heavy weight of anxiety on my shoulders.

Not only is Sophia one of the loveliest ladies I've met through blogging, she's also very good at creating amazing t-shirt collections and, boy oh boy, was I excited when this piece landed on my doorstep!

This is the Melanie tee and I just find it so easy to throw on and add a bit of 'something-something' to an outfit that would have usually been a bit more 'dulled down' by a white tee before hand.

You can check out the full collection HERE.

Second of all is this lovely top from H&M. I picked this up just before Christmas and have loved wearing it ever since. I really like the beige and black polka-dot pattern and the colours work really well in my wardrobe. The fit is really flattering too - I love it paired with some high waisted trousers!




Last of all, we have some new pieces I was kindly sent by Marks and Spencers (*gifted).

We have a couple more dresses here too, with the first one being this super simple, yet truly lovely, striped tee dress. And, yes people, it has pockets!! I've always loved a navy and white stripe combo, and this is just the perfect thing to style with a pair of white trainers and a blazer and be good-to-go.

The second dress is an amazing piece from Spring/Summer with a lightweight feel and dainty print. It's just a really easy throw-on piece that makes you look super put together. I love it paired with a pair of white heels and some gold jewellery - it just makes me feel so elegant!

Then, finally, these trousers! Oh, how I love these trousers! These fit like an absolute glove and are so flattering. I obviously love the navy colour too and can't believe how perfectly they pair with my vintage navy blazer - love love love!

Since discovering Daisy as a brand, I have truly been head-over-heels in love with every piece of their's. I mean, it's safe to say that I'm a sucker for a gold piece of jewellery or two, and it's such a dream to have some Daisy pieces thrown into the mix (or should I say jewellery box).

Today I thought I'd share with you the Daisy pieces that I have in my collection, all of which are pieces I wear day-to-day and love ever so dearly. So, let's have a look, shall we?

*the pieces in this post have been gifted




First up we have the amazing Stacked Rope Charm Earrings which are 18ct gold-plated. I wear these earrings daily (you can even spy me wearing them on the site!). They're the perfect easy-wear hoop, that are so delicate and simple, yet manage to pack a punch despite they're small size of 11.5mm!

As the name suggests, they're designed to create a stacked earring look and it has certainly got me pining for some new piercings, for sure. I need a second ear piercing so I can start wearing these to their full stacking potential!

I love the shape of the roped bar charm, as I just think it's something a little bit different to anything else I have in my collection, and it's probably why I love wearing them so much.

Item price: £69



Then onto the dreamy Estée Lalonde Sunburst Shield Necklace which is also 18ct gold-plated. This is the first piece I ever received from Daisy and it was definitely what started my love affair with the brand!

It's the perfect layering necklace to pair with shorter pieces. It can be worn at 3 different lengths too, with the longest being 24". I love layering this piece with my shorter gold necklaces and styling it up with v-neck dresses and simple tees - it just helps add a bit of something extra to my outfits.

What I love about this piece the most however, is what it represents. The beautiful sunburst shield pendant is a gorgeous symbol of happiness and protection, which I think is really lovely.

Item price: £169



Last but not least, we have my most recent addition, which is also from the Estée Lalonde Collection, the Sunburst Signet Ring, also 18ct gold-plated, with a stunning sunburst design to match perfectly with my necklace!

I've been after a signet ring for SO long, so I couldn't resist finally getting my hands on this one. Again, it's got a lovely message behind it too, symbolizing happiness and protection and can easily be stacked with other rings or simply worn on it's own (I love to wear mine on it's own as I think it's such a wonderful statement ring!).

I love this piece for it's combination of a more masculine chunky style, but with the delicately detailed design on the front. It's something I love adding to a look with a simple blazer and denim jeans.



So, there we have it... 3 amazing Daisy Jewellery pieces that I, and my outfits, simply just could not go without!

Let me know which your favourite piece is and whether you have your eye on any of the Daisy collections too ♥

I've spent the last 10 years searching for something I've never found. Ever. I've come close to the feeling, but only through the trials and tribulations of manipulating myself into forms my soul just quite didn't fit. One day its one thing, another it's the next, and one by one, these 'forms' have swallowed me whole, consumed me entirely, until there's simply a shell of a person left.

Starvation, calorie counting, bulimia, anxiety, depression - a deep wormhole of my own self-hatred - all of which have brought me to where I am today. These are the tactics (metaphorically speaking) that I've clung to. And, now, I'm so deep in my own mind, that sometimes I don't even recognize myself falling back into old habits anymore.

I've had brief encounters with self-love, of course. I've had days, weeks, months even, where I've felt at peace. Yet, the word 'brief' has the most significance here. These periods of my life are gone within a blink of an eye and suddenly I find myself back where I started, clinging to an unfortunately familiar vice that always leaves me feeling the same.

The earliest memory I have of my own self-destruction was when I was about 13. I remember having a photo with a group of friends after a fun day swanning around the city, thinking we were ladies of leisure, despite having school at 8am the next day. We'd stopped to have the obligatory 'day-out' snap, and up until that point I remember having laughed, smiled, and giggled my way through a cold winter Sunday. I stared down at this image of myself and suddenly felt humiliated. I felt embarrassed to be that girl in the photo staring back at me. A frenzied cluster of emotions ran through my body and something inside me clicked - a switch inside my brain had been turned on and I found that my mind had been ordered on a mission it hadn't quite prepared itself for. Running my eyes over my 'large' thighs and scanning the petite pals next to me, I swore I would never be that girl again. I just couldn't not be 'perfect' like the rest of them.

I guess 'perfection' is different to everyone - for me, it has always been to see myself as flawless, and for everything I do in life to be flawless. I want to be this effortless person, with an effortless lifestyle and the effortless instagram account that everyone fawns over. This lifelong hunt of mine has been to capture this beauty - to embody this image I have of myself, of my dream self - and become something completely different to the person I truly I am, or to who my 13 year old self was. I mean, I don't think I truly know what this 'perfect' self is yet, since I've never found it, but there's a force within me that's constantly willing me to get there.

This perfection I see in others is a mystery to me. There's something I see in other people - in their appearance, in their souls, in their lives - that I've just never seen within myself. I often wonder what it'd be like to live an anxiety-free life, waking up with the perfectly formed body, the healthy glowing skin, the problem-less money and the clear career path. I daydream about waking up with nothing but thoughts of my early morning coffee on my mind, and going about life not wondering how I can make myself better, make myself 'desirable'. But, if there's one thing that I've noticed through all these years of pining after the same distant illusion, one thing that has always stopped me in my tracks, it's that...

I am in fact a very flawed person.

I am imperfect.

Amidst every thing that I portray online, I am someone who struggles. I am someone with issues on top of issues, and life often feels incredibly heavy to me. There are small fleeting moments in my life where I find silence, usually around loved ones and days where I'm distracted from my phone. I don't wake up to the sound of bird song with a perfectly poured latte in hand and I definitely don't have a 10 step skincare routine made up of La Roche Posay and Emma Hardie cleansers. I don't have a perfectly toned body and a wardrobe to die for, and I don't have a lot of money, ever. The internet is an illusion, I know that about my own life, for sure, but there's something inside me that stops me applying that to other people too. I'm not saying that what I share is a lie, of course, I just find that I'm constantly trying to live up to the standard that other people portray, even though they're most likely in that same sinking ship as I am.

Throughout the last 10 years, I've gone from a teenager to a young woman and within that, I've still helplessly clung onto the hopes and dreams of my 13 year old self. I've slid past parts of life that would have taught me things, that would have helped me grow, and that in itself has been one of my biggest downfalls. I mean, I've managed to become someone that I'm content with personality wise. I think my parents shaped me into a kind, polite and understanding person, and I'm forever grateful for that, but I feel like there's a missing part of me that would make me stronger, that would have helped me fight for more, that would have given me more of a sense of self.

I guess that thing would be confidence. I think I'm missing that compelling feeling of 'I'm okay as I am' and that 'I don't need to change'. There's something inside me that is consistently convincing me that I'm wrong. My face is wrong, my body is wrong, that everything I do and create is wrong. Wouldn't it be nice to knock that feeling?

I've never stepped back and just let myself 'stop', despite the amount of days I spend nestled in my duvet, with only the screen of a Netflix show to light up the room. Even in the moments where I think I'm finally taking some time to be at peace, there's still a whirlwind of thoughts consuming me, a whole world of deep-seated hurt that is circling around my mind. And, maybe I'll never know what it's like not to be preoccupied with all-consuming thoughts. Maybe I'll write endlessly about how my eating disorders have taken over my life, about how I feel lost in a world full of picture-perfect lives. Maybe that's just how my life is meant to be. There are thousands of days which have passed me by, all caught up in a daze of 'perfection', and it's frightening that that might be forever for me.

It would be remarkable if I could just quieten the noise a tiny bit. I would love to wake up to an empty mind and a fresh feeling one day. I want to care less and live more, nothing standing in my way to push me back down. I wish to stop comparing my lives to others, my body to others, as I am not them, and I wish I could find contentment in all that I am and do. I want the weight of the world to be lifted from my shoulders and contemplating perfection to simply be a thing of the past.

Soon I hope to accept myself, flaws and all.

"unless I am myself, I am nobody". - Virginia Wolf

As January pay-day rolled around, I found myself really struggling not to treat myself to something new to add to my wardrobe. I've been trying to save money, you see. I've decided that 2020 is the year that I attempt to become more of  a 'grown up' and to stay more stable and organised. However, a quick trip into Primark spun me into a tizz when I spotted two amazing shirt jackets that I just could not go home without.

An item I've been lusting after for a while now is a simple, androgynous style shirt jacket, that's a great transitional piece as the weather begins to warm up a bit. I've been on the hunt for months, looking at the likes of COS, & Other Stories and other brands that I sadly just could not part a big chunk of my money with (because I'm a stickler for buying pricey things, not because I don't LOVE the brands).

But then Primark saved the day - I picked up these 2 amazing jackets for the cost of £40 (for both!) and I'm so so happy with them.


JACKET - PRIMARK // TEE - PRIMARK // SHORTS - GHOSPELL [GIFTED]


JACKET - PRIMARK // TOP - ZARA // BAG - GUCCI // TROUSERS - VINTAGE

I love the over-sized style of them and the colours are so chic and clean looking - perfect to pair with neutrals like I've done here. The cut of them looks so much more expensive than £20 too, and I've already had so many questions about them when wearing them!

For me, sometimes a bargain of a jacket is just as good as something you might spend £70 on in another store. I've had so many people think that these were something from COS or Zara and I think it's so cool that I've barely broke the bank on 2 brilliant pieces I'll be getting so much wear out of.

Sadly, I can't link these jackets in this post, but definitely head down to your local Primark ASAP and check them out for yourself! 

I'll share some similar pieces below for you to browse as well:

This week Josh and I had the pleasure of staying at The Cow Hollow Hotel in Manchester [*gifted stay]. You can find this character-filled inn on Newton Street in the beloved Northern Quarter, surrounded by the exciting hustle and bustle of city life.

We spent one great evening there and, after just 24 hours, vowed we'd definitely have to go back again.







We began our stay with a warm welcome to The Amelia Suite, with complimentary sweets on arrival.

The room was like a cosy little guesthouse with a fire place, open brick walls and bright wooden windows. It had such an old-style feel, yet is kept up-to-date with tech savvy accessories to compliment it perfectly. In each room there's high quality Bluetooth speakers and free Netflix, along with a hair dryer, curling tongs and straighteners to use (what a dream, right?).

The King Size Hypnos bed allowed me to have one of the best nights sleep I've had in ages, whilst the complimentary service of milk and cookies in the evening just topped the whole night off with a cosy, comfortable and homely feel.





 



The bathrooms are small, yet super chic and clean, featuring large rainfall showers, with soft towels and full-size REN products to use. This is also where you'll find the hair dryer, straightener and curling tong I mentioned a moment ago.

I loved marble fixtures and rustic-style taps. It's the perfect place to get ready for the day/evening too, as there is also a light-up magnifying make-up mirror in there to get the best lighting for hitting the town.




Complimentary Prosecco and nibbles are also on offer at the bar, which is small, yet still completely glamorous, with friendly, chatty staff to go along with it.

It's decor is classy, with character and a stylish feel - I particularly loved the bar stools to perch on and the tropical plants to add to the 'home away from home' setting.

It's the perfect way to start an evening before heading out into town to explore more of what Manchester has to offer - plus the Prosecco is some of the best that both Josh and I have ever had, we couldn't rave about it enough!






In the morning we were greeted by a delicious continental breakfast that was brought up to our room at our own specified timing. We indulged in the tasty granola and yoghurt, brioche buns and coffee, whilst enjoying the free Netflix on the smart TV and making the most of our last hour or so in our dreamy suite.

We then checked out at the perfect time of 11am, and were sent on our way with a delicious complimentary take-away coffee.

All in all, it's probably the best hotel I've stayed at in a while and I'll definitely be keeping it in mind for future get-aways and be recommending it to anyone that wants to enjoy a little taste of Manchester.
