Vogue’s Fashion Night Out

So last month saw Manchester host this year’s Vogue’s Fashion Night Out, and boy did the city do us proud.

Being based at The Avenue, Spinningfields for the evening was fab. Each store had an offer, event or DJ and complimentary drinks…what a great excuse to shop! The Avenue giant letters were turned into a red carpet and photo-wall for the evening, where city-goers and fashionistas could be papped before heading off for exclusive in-store events and drinks at Grand Pacific.

I of course took my moment to shine (please ignore the fact that I was unable to button-up my new coat properly!)…

Manchester House and Artisan – a girly night of cocktails in Manchester

After a very long and tough week and to celebrate Lucy’s birthday, we headed out for a well-deserved girly dinner and cocktails at Manchester House and Artisan at Spinningfields, Manchester. And what a night it was, full of good food and yummy drinks.

Artisan is one of the latest additions to what has become the place to be for an evening out: Spinningfields. The interior is incredible and mixes the natural (indoor herb gardens grow by the open kitchen) with the industrial (exposed brick work and piping) to create an incredible loft-style space. It’s huge! The menu is impressive and reasonably priced, so it’s the ideal spot for a girly evening of food and drinks (my favourite kind of evening).

We started with a bottle of Prosecco to toast the birthday girl and moved onto Red Wine to accompany our steaks and sides. I had the fillet steak with hollandaise sauce and crinkle-cut chips on the side. Delicious, it was like cutting butter. Nothing beats a good steak in my books. The other girls had rump and t-bone (I surprisingly had food envy over the rump, which looked really juicey!).

A Pinks Boutique Power Massage at City Spa Escapes, Manchester

Arriving at Quay House, Spinningfields for a Pinks Boutique Power Massage at City Spa Escapes, you would be forgiven for thinking you’ve turned up at the wrong place. This is because City Spa Escapes is located on the 2nd floor of what is essentially an office building in the wonderful location that is Spinningfields. However, as soon as you enter the spa, you lose all sense of that. There are 2 treatment rooms, both comfortable, warm and inviting, kitted-out with everything needed to provide a relaxing spa treatment.

I had opted for the Pinks Boutique Power Massage which promises a massage combining Eastern and Western techniques. It aims to soothe and relax aching muscles as well as cleansing your body and soul. A combination much needed for me a the moment! I’m in!
