So me and the besties have been trying to organise a shopping day for the LONGEST time !. Since last September to be precise! :)We finally managed to book our trains for Manchester for an epic day of shopping and Gin :)

I haven’t been feeling myself over the past week- struggling with mental health is awful isn’t it , and honestly when I have my bad moments they usually pass, but it has been the longest week of hell and I haven’t been able to shift it at all.

I wasn’t going to go yesterday in all honestly , my head just wasn’t in it and I didn’t want to fake it , we’ve all been there haven’t we , put that smile on even though it’s the last thing we want to do.

I woke up yesterday morning and decided that I was going to go and this would be a line drawn in this horrible place I have been and I was going to try my hardest to get out of the funk.

So off to Manchester I went - and it was the absolute best!!!

Of course we started the morning - 10am with a fry up and gin :) it had to be done . This day was definitely starting with style :)

I googled some witchy shops as we were all in need of something . I was on the look out for white sage incense sticks and grabbed a few packs, as well as some other beautiful stuff including a gorgeous sphere rose quartz which is going to be perfect for relaxing meditation.

Lush was definitely on the cards and I was treated to a lovely hand massage and had a good spending spree in there - if you know me by now them you’ll know this was obviously going
To happen . I picked up the Lord of Misrule perfume too which smells incredible.

We had Chinese for lunch and had such a laugh - as well as putting the world to right. When you meet up with your besties and talk about anything and everything - you know your having a good time.

Pandora shop was hectic! Debbie decoded she wanted to buy the whole contents . If I’d of known we were going to be in there that long , I would of definitely brought a chair with me :)

The girls treated me to a new pandora charm each which was so lovely and honestly the whole day just made me feel 100 times better .

We ended the day in the pub that we started in with a few more gins and moaning about
How shopping is hard work and all the aches we had - like three little old women ha!

I had the best day and will definitely be making this a regular thing . Friends are definitely important and needed in life - no matter what anyone tells you x


  1. It looks like you had a wonderful day, especially if you started it with gin so early :) I actually went to Lush the other day and got a couple of bath bombs to treat myself.

  2. What a lovely way to spend the day. It sounds like you have some very special friends there.

    I went shopping with my bridesmaids recently for their dresses and I just had the best day ever!

  3. Sounds like a lovely day out! Sometimes you just have to take a step back from the hectic day-to-day life

  4. Aww it sounds like you had a lovely day out with your friends and how lovely they treated you to a new charm - special way to remember to special day.

  5. It's a shame that life gets in the way and delays catch up with best friends, however, the wait is always worth it when you do get to catch up. You had a wonderful day and managed to bag some fantastic items.

  6. I've never been to Manchester but it looks like a great destination for a UK city break; I'll have to bear it in mind for the future.

  7. Did you head to Afflecks? That place is an absolute treasure trove and definitely on my must visit list every time I go to Manchester.

  8. It is so lovely to catch up with friends, I really need to find more time to meet up with mine. Looks like you got some lovely treats

  9. Awww what a lovely catch-up, whenever my friends and I go shopping at the end we complain like the old women that we are lol.

  10. Oh I absolutely LOVE a look in Pandora when I'm in town! xxx
