Best Spots in Manchester for a Good Old Drink

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 Red Lip Love

It's about time I mentioned a red lip for the first time in absolute ages. Red lipstick is a signature I always in my life. I wear them a lot actually even though you probably wouldn't have any clue as I don't normally document it each time. I have got a pretty good collection now but there's one that really sticks out for me. I got a miniature YSL lipstick when I got the Black Opium perfume. I was so excited and it's my first designer lipstick so there's sentimental value to this beauty.

First off that packaging though, it has the high end feel to it which I am fully fine with this one. The fact that it's a miniature means it's even cuter. Like come on it's tiny lipstick how could I not find this cute. Because of how tiny it is it fits in my little bags perfect so come on there's already a love affair here.

Colour wise this is a real pop art red. Which come on am I ever gonna hate, it has a matte finish but there is a slight hint of shine. For me this gets the balance right and allows me to get the colour I want without it sliding all around my face. If you've read my blog for long enough you'll know that I hate anything glossy with an absolute passion so it's refreshing to see this has a matte finish to it.

Payoff wise the colour is there within seconds. It doesn't require 400 applications to get a streak free pay-off. It does everything I need it to do and more. I forgot about my love for bright red lipstick til I got this. It doesn't lie when it says it's a true red colour it isn't lying.

Lasting power on this is really good, it stays on all day and holds up well with food and drink. It does leave the red stain on a hot chocolate but who would exactly complain about that. For the price this is definitely worth it. I wouldn't go out my way buying the whole collection but I love having this as a sentimental piece. 

Let me know down below if you've tried any of the Ysl's lipsticks. They're a first for me but i'm definitely hooked.
