Manchester: Didsbury Delights and Wedding Dresses

I’ve had one of those lovely chilled out weekends that don’t come around too often. Instead of rushing around, attending birthday nights out and completing some long overdue chores, I’ve actually just relaxed! So for a change, instead of raving about my favorite brands, events and fashion picks, I thought I’d give some blog shout outs to some fab places visited this weekend in my city – Manchester.

Friday night was spent with my lovely twin sister and fiance, at my favorite restaurante, Sul Lago (well it’s actually Daisy Nook, which is near my home town of Failsworth) Heres a tip- Lobster filled Ravioli is the best thing I’ve tasted. Like, ever ever. Saturday was spent with the boyf and his family, and I also headed to Didsbury for a quick catch up with the best friend. We went to a new cupcakery in West Didsbury called ‘The Dish Ran Away With The Spoon’… bit of a mouthful, but absolutley AMAZING!

How adorable is this little teapot? And this cake… Red Velvet Cupcake, absolutley delish! I visted the website and I am very happy to see that they are opening a concession in Manchester Arndale’s TOPSHOP store. How fabulous! Just what Topshop needed, very on trend…

I also squeezed in a spot of wedding dress shopping with my sister, and wanted to give a special blog shout out to the fabulous Confetti Box in Eccles. Not only do they provide a massive selection of wedding dresses, all in a range of styles for every brides needs, they also give an incrediable service. We were taken to a quiet part of the shop, where the assistant let my sister try on lots of different styles without getting too involved. They cater lots of bridal dresses for under £1,000 too which I thought was really impressive! A big thumbs up to the Confetti Box!
