Burgers In Baskets: Home Sweet Home Manchester NQ


Location: Edge Street, Northern Quarter, Manchester

My favourite spot to hang in Manchester, call me cliche, but it is of course the Northern Quarter. With its little streets that feature an array of quirky shops and cafes that are unlike anywhere else in the city centre, and with loads of places to sip coffee, cocktails or catch up over lunch, you can be sure you'll find somewhere that sets itself apart from the standard branded coffee shops on Market Street. One place in particular that I'd had my eye on for a while was Home Sweet Home, a bright diner style milkshake cafe situated on Edge Street.

The Coronation Street Tour

The Coronation Street Tour

Location: Coronation Street Set, Granada Studios, Manchester

I'm a northern girl from Stockport, Greater Manchester, and all my life the famous Coronation Street has been playing from my television, firstly in my family home, then in both my parent's houses as a teenager, and later on ITV Player when I had a hangover some time to chill out at university. When I first heard that The Coronation Street Tour would be ending this Christmas, I knew as the soap's number one fan I had to make it a priority to visit. Now, I met my boyfriend nearly a year ago this month, so as an anniversary surprise because he is such an amazing boyfriend, he surprised me with two tickets to the tour and actually wanted to come along with me! (God bless him).

A Greek Paradise: Tingaki, Kos

Tingaki, Kos

Location: Tingaki, Kos Island, Greece

I was dreaming of turquoise water, orange skies and ice cold drinks in the sunshine and Tingaki, Kos made those dreams come true Since I was a little girl, I've enjoyed going away to Greece's many beautiful islands for everything from family holiday's and ten day's of pool loungin' to its more flamboyant party scene such as crazy nights out in Laganas, Zante. When I went to Kos for a week of sun and cocktails, I discovered the island has a balanced, beautiful mixture of both. I flew from Manchester airport and upon arrival, we hopped on a coach to take us to our hotel located in Tingaki. Tingaki is a quieter location on the island, however still offers an array of bars and restaurants down its strip which leads to the sandy beach at the bottom. It was time for Cosmopolitans - and to apply the suncream!

Afternoon Tea & Lunchin': Teacup Kitchen Manchester NQ


Location: Thomas Street, Northern Quarter, Manchester

One of my favourite places to head in Manchester, whether it be for coffee or cocktails, is the Northern Quarter. With its vibrant back streets filled with cafes, bars, thrift stores and shops you just can't get down on Market street, it is the ultimate place to hang on a rainy Manchester afternoon. Being one of those very familiar afternoons, me and my girl made use of our (much needed) day off work and headed to Teacup Kitchen for lunch, dessert, and of course what Teacup Kitchen specialises in: a good cuppa!
