Jamies Italian Manchester

So Jamie’s Italian is just a little bit on the posh side. Its on King Street in the old bank. From outside the building is very typically 1920’s it is also shared with the infamous hotel and restaurant Gotham.

So as poor folk although we have always wanted to go to celebrity restaurants we haven’t really ventured there with the fear of being laughed out or side stepping out once we have seen the menu prices. HOWEVER as complete bargain hunters we go on Amazon local quite a lot and we have seen Jamie’s set menu, 3 courses for £20!!

Sorted!!

As we were heading off on a double date to watch Antman we thought it would be good to go to Jamie’s before hand.

The building and inside are beautiful. After the ordering our food i needed the loo as is only natural to discuss lol, my pointing this out simply because the toilet cubicles are bigger than my whole bathroom at home… no joke. Its downstairs near the vault. Unfortunately for myself people where eating inside so I didn’t get to have  a peak!

Anyway food:

I had The meat plank, the waiter first of all brought me two tins of tomato paste and to my delight he did explain it was to put the plank on! I and the rest of the table were a bit confused ha!

I then had the super salad which was nice although i wish i had the Penne carbonara as it was beautiful and much much tastier. No where near as healthy so I guess that’s about right! Haha.

Desert I had Pavlova, I do love a bit of meringue 🙂 it was chewy my favourite!

So overall our experience was pretty good, the food was great and the building is stunning. I did feel a little out-of-place in all honesty. Which was a shame.

Antman… 2 lots of credits…. watch that sh**….

Fashion Spring 2015

wpid-wp-1426370805314.jpeg

2015 is going to be very big on a number of things including the following:

  • Black and white.
  • Culottes.
  • Kimono style long jackets.
  • Shirt dresses.
  • Yellow.

Here are just a few images that i have pulled up from various sources, that are good at describing my own interpretations of the new trends. This year there are definitely 70’s vibes going on with flares and polo tops but if i was going to do a blog post about everything on the catwalk this season it would be about 3000 words long and no one wants that!

I just want to make it known now tho that Culottes are hideous… on EVERYONE. (That is all)

  I love black and white with a pop of colour, its classy and timeless. You can wear it out, dressed down and at work, its universal.

Kimono’s are good at keeping away the chill, keeping you stylish and not overwhelming you with warmth on those mysterious hot days i have yet to experience.

I am pretty undecided about shirt dresses, i think they look really good on a lot of people but i just don’t like them on me.

Anyway, so yea just thought i’d update you with were i was in relation to the whole spring deal…

WARM WEATHER SOON PLEASE….
