Best Spots in Manchester for a Good Old Drink

Image
I'm surprised I've never really covered this before, but in the past year I've ventured out a bit and gone around town looking for the best places for a drink, from cocktails to ciders there's a range of places across Manchester that deserve a bit of a spotlight. I like a mixture of drinks and there's nothing worse than going to a new bar and choosing the same drink you have everywhere else, I like to try something different each time. So if you're looking for a new place to grab a drink take note of where am about to mention, from the Northern Quarter to Spinningfields. 

First up, is Jimmy's if you're into the more indie scene of Manchester this is a great place to check out. They have a great range of cocktails, great music that you can't miss and they house a lot of gigs around the year. Some of my best gigs from the past year have been at Jimmy's and it's somewhere you really can't miss. It's a bit different to the rest on the lis…

The £4 Wonder Brush





Brushes aren't a product that I tend to review on here. I normally tend to just stick to certain brushes, re-purchasing them when needed. But recently I started to look around more, I wanted a stippling brush as the Real Techniques one for me is just too small. The bristles don't really have any movement so it can take an age sometimes to do my makeup. If I have a free day I don't mind using it but if I have college or work where I only have a limited time It just isn't practical for me. 

Any stippling brushes that I have used always leave a good finish, that was the one thing I was looking for as my buffing brush has become worse for wear. So after spending a bit of time online searching various websites I found one in the one shop I would never have looked. Wilko's, now for those of you who aren't from the UK this is a shop that sells anything really. From homeware to household goods, it is similar to Target especially as everything is from bigger brands its just reduced. But they do still sell their own products. 

They just recently brought out a makeup accessories and skincare range and after looking online for a bit I came across their makeup brushes. They have quite a similar design to Real Technique brushes, something I wasn't too surprised of. They only have makeup brushes at the moment, they haven't released any makeup products. 

I decided as a 'just in case they aren't that great' to only get one brush just to test. I picked up the Short Stippling Brush priced at £4. Sadly for some reason it isn't on their website but the regular stippling brush is. 

I have been using this for over a month now and the one thing I am most impressed with is the finish, I have noticed a massive difference in how my foundation now looks when using this and a buffing brush. It makes my face look much smoother and gives off that natural look. 


Another thing that I was actually surprised at is how well it holds, I have cleaned this around 6 times and not a single bristle has fell out. Even if I wash the brush quite rough it still seems to stay in tact. 

When you buy the brush it comes in a 'travel case' it is a clear wallet that you can leave your brush in an either carry it in your makeup bag to stop it from getting dirty or you can store other brushes in it as well. The brush is fairly big so you would only be able to fit in a few eyeshadow brushes with it in the case. 


For £4 I am beyond impressed, it gives a great finish. Lasts long and overall is a seriously good brush. Despite my thoughts at first I definitely want to go and pick up a few more of their brushes. If you have tried this brush or any others that you think I should try then comment down below and it could be in one of my reviews.
