Propercorn Review: June 2016
Cassandra along with her best friend and business partner Ryan are the founders of Propercorn. Working with the Propercorn brand was an amazing tasty opportunity for the obvious reasons. However, more importantly being a daddy’s girl myself a synonymous and instant connection was made with Cassandra. In her childhood years, Cassandra created and perfected popcorn delights along with her father. There is where Propercorn was born. Due to Propercorns success Cassandra has now outgrown her mothers kitchen and wants to share the knowledge and learn others the art of how to make Propercorn, popcorn that is done properly. The Institute of Flavour is the platform created for this purpose. An exciting experimental flavours education @PROPERCORN #FlavourDoneProperly #InstituteofFlavour.
STOP, my day just got proper awesome with the arrival of a full case of Propercorn popcorn. My case of proper summer fun, packed full with Propercorn is one suitcase that I did not mind carrying around! Eighteen individual bags of crunchy creative corn that included six scrumptious flavour sensations. Lightly sea salted, Sour cream and black pepper, Fiery Worcester Sauce & sun dried tomato, sweet & salty, sweet coconut & vanilla and the newbie Smooth Peanut & Almond! GM, Gluten, wheat and guilt free snacks. Certain packs also suitable for vegans and veggies!
Little Party Parcels Review: June 2016
Who says that party packs are just for children! Adults too crave a release from the monotonous mundane daily grind of life, work and stress. Almost seeking out that peter pan moment of let’s “never grow up”. This is when I got the opportunity to work with Jennifer, the owner of Little Party Parcels. Jennifer worked closely in conjunction with myself to create the most fabulous party bags for my birthday celebrations.
Packaging provided included perfect pretty pink Italian Kraft paper party bags with twisted handles. Also, frosted dotty party bags with opaque handles. Both were quality, robust and represented excellent value for money. The tissue paper was generous in measurement and are acid free, chlorine free, and bleed resistant. Also, these cute party bags were easy to personalise.
Great John Street Hotel Visit: June 2016
The Great John Street Hotel enjoys a prime location in the heart of Manchester city centre. Prior to renovations the hotel was a Victorian school house, but cleverly the Eclectic hotel brand have managed to transform the school into a luxury townhouse hotel balancing a mix of eclectic charm while remaining sympathetic to the historic appeal and prominence of the old school house.
Anna the 7th Duchess of Bedford introduced the fashionable trend of partaking in Afternoon Tea. Jolly good call in my opinion! As was indulging in the Ladies afternoon tea in the plush, opulent and luxurious surroundings of the Oyster Bar designed by Sally O’Loughlin. Also, a cocktail on the exquisite rooftop lounge seemed the obvious way to playout in this charming venue.
Afternoon tea was served with as much tea and coffee as we required, but we added a glass of the fizzy stuff – Perrier Jouet champagne, as for me champagne is an obligatory part of the afternoon tea experience. The ladies tea included some fabulous finger sandwiches filled with smoked salmon and guacamole, egg and mustard cress, roast beef and watercress, ham and homemade piccalilli and cucumber dill cream cheese. Scones served with scrumptious clotted cream and fresh strawberry jam were divine, delicious and devoured in record time.
Browns Bar and Brasserie Visit: June 2016
Designed in 1902 by Charles Heathcote, the former Parrs Bank building also previously known as the Athenaeum pub underwent renovations and is now the home of the Browns Bar and Brasserie in Manchester city centre. The Building boasts traditional Elaborate Edwardian baroque architecture with exquisite art nouveau detailing. The bar centrally positioned is the heart of Browns and a networking hot spot. Additionally, a perfectly positioned piano awaits those who delve deeper into Browns and make the wise decision to sample their food offerings. Luckily, as you can see from the images I managed to get a few photos in before the city crowds and tourists had hit this favourite Manchester Destination.
