If you follow me on Snapchat (sweetsevenfive) you might know that yesterday I headed into Primark to do a mini beauty haul, and I wanted to share with you guys some of the things I picked up! I'm really impressed by Primark's beauty range recently with the introduction of some great new makeup products and beauty bargains. I also have been a huge fan of the jewelry and accessories for years, with those being some of my staple goodies to add to any outfit when I was partying hard at university. I hope you guys enjoy having a little peek and some of the things I bought and I definitely feel these are going to come in handy for Autumn which lies just around the corner.

On Thursday evening, I attended MyBag.com's #MyBagMostWanted cocktail party at The Alchemist, a perfect venue for the evening which is known for its modern interiors and skills in mixology. Greeted on arrival with a fresh and fruity peaches & cream cocktail, accompanied with a mini beaker of prosecco, I got stuck in straight away with viewing the fantastic designer handbags over canapes and cocktails!

Location: Manchester Art Gallery, Mosley Street, Manchester
I'd being dying to go to the Fashion and Freedom exhibition, along with the Vogue100 exhibition held at Manchester Art Gallery ever since I'd heard about them both at the start of summer. Both exhibitions are absolutely incredible, if you're a lover of fashion and live in Manchester, they are essential to attend this summer. Fashion and Freedom is part of a project using art to connect people with the First World War, and the exhibition features incredible designers such as Vivienne Westwood, Holly Fulton and Emilia Wickstead to name just a few. If you'd like to find out more about the project, you can visit the Fashion & Freedom website here for more information.

Location: Tariff Street, Northern Quarter, Manchester
During the Summer months, I'm all about wearing bodysuits and little tops especially when I don't need to worry about wearing a jacket. It can be the perfect pairing with some comfy trainers, light trousers or skinny jeans. For me, it's about feeling comfortable, but still putting your own mark on things for a unique sense of style. Spending the weekend in the sunny streets of Manchester meant wearing something casual and contemporary, which still had my own stamp, so I opted for black, white, and a touch of fluffiness...

Location: The Pen & Pencil, Hilton Street, Manchester
If you're an avid follower of my Instagram (@sweetsevenfive) or of course this blog, you'll know that one of my favourite spots to hang in my beloved city of Manchester is, of course, the Northern Quarter. Last Saturday I was invited to go down to The Pen & Pencil, a bar that in their own words serve 'Brunch, Lunch, Dinner, Cocktails' and 'Good Times', to try out their brunch menu. Situated on the corner of Hilton street, The Pen & Pencil sits in the vibrant Northern Quarter, making it the perfect spot to head to on a Saturday afternoon in the city.
