On arrival to the salon I entered the large, bright reception area where Donna showed me around and then took me downstairs to where I would be having my massage, the room was lit with beautiful candles and lights with relaxing music, before I got ready for my massage Donna asked me which oil I was drawn to by smelling a range of Espa oils (to be honest they were all gorgeous) I ended up picking the calming one. – The ESPA Back, neck and shoulder massage was so relaxing, from the moment I lay down I felt like I was floating on a bed of clouds.

Once the massage was over I then got dressed and came back upstairs to where I was going to have my Luxury Pedicure. My feet needed some serious buffing from all the running I have been doing lately.. But thank goodness for pedicures Donna soon had my feet looking and feeling so soft. I picked a coral colour for my nails… to match my fingers, ready for my trip to Monte Carlos next week.

Caffe Grande Manchester

We were invited along to the brand new Caffe Grande in Manchester City Centre last week to try out their menu. After hearing about their £1.3 million makeover, we couldn’t wait to visit. The sun was shining on arrival which got us in the mood for cocktails and beautiful food… We knew we were going to the right place! Heading into the restaurant it was literally like walking into a really big cafe.. Caffe Grande exactly! deserts and patisseries all on show and as we walked through the restaurant the meat and fish was also on display, as well as watching the chefs make all the food. The atmosphere was so friendly and all the staff were saying ‘hello’ to us.

Piccolino Caffe Grande serve everything from Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch to Dinner – You can always get your Piccolino fix from morning to night!

The menu has it’s standard delicious Piccolino dishes but also has some extra treats which you have to check out… We had Calamari for starters, (our fav starter) followed by Seafood Risotto and Lasagne with Courgette Fries as a side dish, and then for desert we could not resist having the Berry Tart and the Pistachio and Praline cake. All the food is handmade on the premises by their super talented Italian Chefs which we think you would have a tough time beating their Italian flavours in any other restaurant.

Whenever we visit a NEW Piccolino restaurant we always say it’s our new favourite but its true, their restaurants just get better and better.

We ended our evening with cocktails around the bar, we had the most perfect evening and as summer arrives I’m sure we will be visiting again and again..

To add to the Mediterranean feel of the restaurant DJ Julienne Jeanne – who has worked in some of the coolest ski and beach resorts throughout the Mediterranean – and his team, will play music in the bar, every week from Thursday until Sunday, midday until late.

This place is somewhere you HAVE to visit!!!
