"My favourite thing at the moment is monochrome with a touch of colour"

As many of you may already know I'm not a true Londoner, actually I have no southern blood within me, I'm a pure northern soul! This weekend I ventured back to the country to see my truly missed family and friends. It's been a pretty hectic weekend but I'm not complaining, I managed to see some of my favourite people and places that I have been wanting to share with you for a while.
Since being in London I've had many comments on "What is there actually to do up North"? Seems for some southerners that the north is the forbidden land, but why, we have some of the most beautiful places and as many of you know, we are known for being one of the friendliest of faces! (Did you like what I did there?)
Yesterday I ventured to Manchester with my friend Andrew, and for once in my life I didn't really do much shopping. Catching up took time so we thought why not over a few cocktails! I finally got to try Manchester's famous cocktail bar 'The Alchemist'. From the sophisticated interior and their crazy concoctions, I could only presume I would be burning a huge hole through this student purse of mine, however they proved me wrong! Alcoholic refreshments from £6 and damm they are tasty, I just couldn't get enough...I must recomenend Passion Martini!!!

For dinner aka Lunch as us northerners say, we headed towards something a little more low key towards the northern quarters of MCR and came across a cherpy burger and mexican bar called Luck Lust Liquor & Burn. It's a laid back restaurant with friendly and approachable service, and the food I could not fault, the americana dreaming burger was exactly what it said! Listening to Bob Marley and sipping on even more cocktails was the perfect way to end the day!
Manchester you never let me down!

Let me know if you have any recommendations within Manchester and London, I would love to try?
