Lucha Libre

Lucha Libre Manchester
It was Seb’s birthday weekend and after spending some time exploring Time Machine at the Manchester Art Gallery, we decided to head to Lucha Libre for some quick grub. Lucha Libre is one of my favourite places to eat in Manchester – its good simple Mexican food done well. When it initially…

Time Machine

Franky and Jake were coming up from London for Seb’s birthday weekend. Most people would have booked tickets on the same train, makes perfect sense doesn’t it? But Franky and Jake aren’t ‘most’ people – they decided to book trains an hour apart! In the words of Home Simpson, “Doh”!…

Easter Brownies

There is nothing more satisfying than biting  into a well made brownie. The crusty top and the gooey chocolatey centre keeps me going back for more. And come Easter, I go the extra mile and make the ultimate brownies – The Easter Brownie! I promise you they are the ultimate…

The Sushi & Karaoke Party

Last weekend, I hosted a party for some of my friends from work. It had been a long week and all of us really needed to let off some steam. Oh and sing our hearts out; and that’s exactly what we did. But more on that later. This was supposed…
