Buckt March - Bingo

Buckt March

We all know about subscription boxes that vary from food, tea, or chocolate to beauty. Well, there is another subscription box, that is quite different. I’m talking about Buckt, a subscription box with activities!* How amazing is that? I loved the concept and I was happy to collaborate with them. Thus, this is my review […]

Axe throwing

Axe Throwing

What can be more romantic for Valentine’s Day than to go Axe Throwing in Manchester at Whistle Punks? Well, I imagine most women (and a lot of men) would reply with something else, but not us. I saw axe throwing in the south, when I was looking for things to do/see in our holiday, but […]

Picture from Manchester. Part of my Manchester Day Trip

Manchester Day Trip

I’ve been to Manchester many times before, but almost always to go to a specific venue, at a blogging event or conference, or a meeting with friends. But now I was challenged* to organize a Manchester Day Trip for me and my husband. It sounded amazing. Of course, with us living in Liverpool, we don’t […]

Salford Museum

Salford Museum

Last weekend my husband and I went to Salford Museum in Greater Manchester. It is a lovely art gallery with a lovely shop, where I bought a few things, and there is a nice looking tearoom too. We haven’t been to the tearooms as we were heading up to Trafford Centre for lunch. I’m going […]

Bramall Hall in Manchester

Bramall Hall, Manchester

I’ve been to Bramall Hall in Manchester last year and I loved it, even though it was a brief visit as we got there only one hour before closing time. I didn’t have my DSLR with me, so I went again this year, so I can have a better look and take pictures too. There […]

National Football Museum seen from outside

National Football Museum

After a long chat with my husband, we’ve decided to go to Manchester for the day, a couple of weekends ago. We’ve chose National Football Museum as the destination. The museum is free, donations welcome, but not mandatory, details on their website. The museum starts with the history of the football. It was really interesting. […]

The Donkey Sanctuary

The Donkey Sanctuary

A few days ago, my husband and I went to the Donkey Sanctuary in Manchester. I shared a few pictures on Instagram. The Donkey Sanctuary is a charity, more details, that houses rescued donkeys. They have a few sanctuaries around UK, like Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham and a few others. There are a few sanctuaries outside […]

Manchester Jewish Museum

Manchester Jewish Museum

Even though we are living relatively close, we haven’t been to the Manchester Jewish Museum until last weekend. I thought it will be a fast visit, but in fact we’ve spent there three hours as we’ve went on two guided tours. Manchester Jewish Museum, the only Jewish Museum outside London, is located in a former […]

Imperial War Museum, Manchester

Although Manchester is close to us, we didn’t visit the museums as we tend to go further on our road trips or days out. Finally we went to see the Imperial War Museum and I like it. I should say I liked most of it, as you’ll see at the end of the post. The […]

Lyme House

I have to say this will be another heavy pictured post. Hubby and I went to Lyme House last year on Valentine’s Day for the 200th anniversary of Pride and Prejudice (where we both walked in our regency clothes without a jacket at 5 degrees). On a warmer day we went again to visit the […]
