Grill on the Alley, Manchester - #TCABurgerTakeover

23 July 2015

Grill on the Alley Manchester

Lately I've been kinda obsessed with burgers. I feel like it kinda came out of nowhere, but for the past couple of weeks I've just been eating a lot of burgers. I recently popped down to Manchester, to pay a visit to Grill on the Alley, who have teamed up with Thomas Cook to produce 4 American inspired limited edition burgers, to celebrate Thomas Cook's new Stateside routes.

These went on the menu on the 4th of July, for one month only, so you've still got a bit of time to pop down and try them for yourself.

The offerings in question are as follows:

NY Deli Burger: Classic with pastrami, pickle and Lancashire cheese

Boston Burger: With prawns and crayfish, garlic butter and back bacon

The Miami Burger: Pickled watermelon, pineapple and horseradish coleslaw

The LA Burger: Onion rings, guacamole, chipotle mayo and beer battered pickles

 The LAX Burger

I brought along one of my friends, and we settled down with some cocktails and the menu. I ended up going for the LAX burger, and she ordered a beef burger with bacon. We couldn't decide which starters/sides we wanted, so we opted for the platter to share, which turned out to be an excellent life decision. 

Everything we had was absolutely delicious, I was a big fan of the involvement of beer battered pickles, and my friend said I should definitely mention how much she enjoyed her cocktail. They asked us how we wanted our burgers cooked, and we both asked for medium, and received burgers cooked to perfection.

If you do manage to pop down before the end of the month to try any of these, use this link to book to be automatically entered to win a flight out to America yourself, and be sure to tweet a picture of your burgers to @GrillManc and @TCAirlinesUK Twitter accounts, and use the hashtag #TCABurgerTakeover for an extra entry! 

I've never actually been to the States before, so winning a flight to Miami or NYC would be amazing! You can read more about the destinations on the Thomas Cook blog.

Summer Trend: Three Ways to Wear White Skinny Jeans with George

5 June 2015

White Skinny Jeans*
Crop Top*

Lace Kimono*

Canvas Pumps*

I haven't done a fashion post in what feels like a long time, so I was really inspired when I was contacted about a 'Ways To Wear' opportunity with George. I actually buy a lot of my clothes from George anyway, I find they have just become better and better over the years.

I'd been after a pair of white skinny jeans for a long time, and I had loads of fun picking outfits to team them with. I think white skinny jeans are a real summer style staple - especially if you're like me, and you tend toward a somewhat monochrome colour palette. They help steer me away from my usual 'all black' ensembles for the brighter months, and also work great with a pop of colour. 

I have been absolutely wearing these to death ever since I finally got around to taking these outfit shots, and the fear of ruining them subsided. And despite the fact that I should mayyyyybe wait until I'm not so clearly retaining cake before I bust out the crop tops, the jaquard crop has been one of my most worn items these past few weeks - it goes with so many different options!

Simple Gold Spring Makeup Look

21 March 2015


The other day I was absolutely full of a cold (still am actually, how long will this plague drag on for?!), and I didn't quite dare wear my trusty winged eyeliner, because I knew I would probably end up with eyes so watery that it all came off in a panda-esque mess throughout the evening. So I thought I would try something fairly simple, and I went for this gold spring makeup look.
