THE SUNDAY POST #7

001. Today has involved a lot of lazing around, reading Harry Potter on the kindle I received for my birthday. It's so light and portable, and always makes me feel like reading whilst out and about. I've been meaning to read GoT for ages, but the physical size of the books really puts me off so I'll definitely purchase them on my kindle. 
002. On my birthday I ate at Southern Eleven, and I'm pretty sure they do the one of the best Mac n Cheese's in Manchester (Home Sweet Home is also up there!) I also really enjoyed the jalapeño corn bread and sweet potato fries, but, be warned, the suicide hot wings really are lethal.
003. This week I explored Liverpool, and I really liked it. I had a few "is this city nicer than mine?" moments, but the minute I got back into Piccadilly I realised there is nothing better than coming home to Manchester. However I do feel that I need to explore Manchester more, as it's all too easy to take the same routes and do the same things day in day out. 
004. It's not a new song, but I still can't stop listening to John Legend's All of Me, his voice is seriously dreamy. Not listening to the radio means I always miss what's currently in the charts, what new songs are you all loving at the moment?
005. I feel like I've been eating out non-stop for the past few weeks, and I am so glad that Lent is coming up as it always motivates me to sort my diet out. I've decided to give up my three vices, the three T's: Town. Taxis. Takeaways. Every time I go to town for no reason I come back with things I don't need. I take far too many taxi's out of laziness, and takeaways for the same reason! I'm also participating in the DW 40 days of fitness challenge so follow me on Twitter to keep up with my progress.

  1. Ooooh I love Southern Eleven! We went there for the reopening and I was suitably impressed- the corn bread is amazing :) Liverpool is a fantastic day trip/weekend away, the same goes for Leeds, but I agree- there's nothing like coming back to Manchester :)
    Good luck with the 40 days of fitness x

    1. I really enjoyed the food, although we didn't try that much. I'll be going back to try some new things (and for that mac n cheese!) I've never been to Leeds but will pop it on my list of day trips to do, I love being able to come home to Manchester though! Thanks Emma x

    1. It's such a good song isn't it? I definitely agree about Manchester, even after three years there is always somewhere new to explore or something new to do xx

  3. I agree about Manchester, I live here since 2012, so 2,5 years, but still don't know lots of places. I really like John Legend All of Me, but recently my favorite is Olly Murs: Up. Nice post, thank you. :)
