Cafe | Ziferblat Edge St. Northern Quarter (Manchester)

The Bloggers’ Market MCR 2015 will be hosted by the awesome Ziferblat Edge St. Northern Quarter on the 11th of April, Saturday 11am – 2pm. This gave me an opportunity to visit Ziferblat a few times for bloggers’ meetup. (You can check out this post for more info about the Bloggers’ Market MCR 2015) 

There are plenty of buzz going around the opening of Ziferblat since February up until now. I remember reading lots of articles about it on my Facebook feed and pretty much straight away, included this cafe on my list of places to visit. So what is it exactly? Their Facebook page stated, “Ziferblat is the name for a new kind of social space; where everything is free except the time you spend there. We charge 5 pence per minute and that’s all”.

Simplest form of explanation: You pay 5p per minute per stay.
1. Buzz at the door and they will let you in.
2. Go up to first floor and clock in at the reception so that you know and they know what time you have arrived. (see below for the photo of the reception)
3. Chill and sit down on their comfy sofas and use their 100mb awesome wifi.
4. Eat cake, drink tea or have a freshly brewed coffee. (all DIY of course and make sure you wash your dishes)
5. Play piano or play boardgames with your friends – there are so many things to do in this cool space!
6. Clock out and be so amused by the fact that you did all that, and you only need to pay 5p per minute. Totally worth it!

Fashion | Winning the Laundry Boutique Styling Competition

Apologies for the lack of updates on my blog. Last time, I did admit I’m terrible at updating, this is such a late post.

My last post was the Laundry Boutique Blogger Event – where I joined a styling competition. I’m so grateful for all the people who helped me win the competition. Thank you to all my lovely friends in Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. I really appreciate everything. Thank you. ♡♡♡

I emailed Mariela (Laundry Boutique) and asked her if I could pop in the store to get all the items. Weekend came and my fiancé and I droppped by their cute store to get everything. There’s a little bit of a mixed-up when I came but it got sorted at the end. I must say, Lauren (Online Director of Laundry Boutique) was amazing. She’s been emailing me and making sure that I received everything. What a gem! Such excellent service.

Thank you to Laundry Boutique for this fab outfit! 

Here are all the lovely items that I won – you can also check all of these items (hopefully not sold-out) in their website.

My fiancé and I decided to go out yesterday to enjoy the bright and sunny weather! Here’s my OOTD taken from my iPhone. It was so hot yesterday so paired the top with a grey skirt from H&M. I love my black platforms! It’s my go-to this summer. It’s not too high and so comfortable!

What’s your favourite this summer?

Awesome bracelets in Camden Town

They’re just too pretty! All of them! I bought 2 for £8. Best £8 I’ve ever spent I must say! The thing I loved about these bracelets is the illusion that it looks as if you’re wearing more bracelets because of its multiple strands. 🙂 Again, this is in Camden Lock Market.

By the way, all of my photos are linked through my Flickr account giving you the option to see it in a bigger size. 🙂 Just click the photo!

Vintage Suitcases

I love Camden Market! There’s so many things to see! I love their vintage stores which include bags, shoes, jackets, nifty necklaces and watches etc etc.
Too bad I’m way too skint to buy anything the last time we went there! But I told my boyfriend that the 2nd time we visit Camden, we’ll make sure we have lots of cash! 🙂
Oh and the food? There are so many selections you want to try them all!

These suitcases are vintage! One day, I’ll go back and buy one. 🙂
