About

My name is Maxine and I’m a southerner living in Manchester with my boyfriend, Phil, and my German Shepherd, George. I moved to Manchester to follow my career and I’m extremely happy to say that I landed my dream job 5 months after getting here – I genuinely now look forward to going to work every day (well, maybe not every day – I have lazy days like the best of us – but most days) which is something I have never had in any of my previous jobs!

I’ve been reading and following blogs for a few years; I really enjoy reading reviews and posts by other bloggers which inspire me to learn new things, visit new places and try new experiences. I also find myself commenting on other posts with tips of my own so I thought – why not start your own blog!

If you enjoy getting inspiration, hints and tips, reading reviews and generally being nosy into other people’s lives (no need to deny it, we all love being nosy!) then you’ll feel right at home here. This blog will be about the things I enjoy doing, buying and reading about that I think other people will also enjoy; so you can expect to find everything from recommended restaurants and holiday destinations to fashion and beauty buys to general musings about life and relationships. I’ll also try and throw in some advice posts about things that I have experience with or think I could help people with like setting up life in a new city or coping with Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD).

If you like the look of my blog then come along and follow me on InstagramTwitter or Bloglovin (or all of the above) and if you enjoy a particular post or discussion then please get in touch and we can chat about it. I love meeting new people and hearing other people’s opinions so I’m always open to hearing from you!
