I know it's been a while since my last posting but as you can see I have revamped my blog design thanks to Kerys Marie, owner of www.LittleBoBlab.com . I have also been incredibly busy with university work, but after getting some lovely business cards matching my blog layout, I thought it was time to get serious about being a blogger. I'm making a promise to blog at least once a week from today as it's one of my goals of the year.
Miss VintageVibe is back and I thought I would do a posting on the Manchester Christmas markets. After having a lazy weekend with my fella, we decided to hit the Christmas markets today to get into the spirit of Christmas as it's the 1st of December. It's officially 24 days till Christmas and counting, now that's something to get excited about.
To be honest, I haven't had the time to do any Christmas shopping at all, which is extremely shameful but with being in my third year at university, I never have much time to my self. I'm really upset as this year I won't be able to go home to help my mum put up the Christmas tree and do all the fun bits, but I'm so excited to be able to relax with my family on Christmas day.
I decided to go to the markets to at least get an idea of what to buy people. My mum is usually the trickiest to buy for as she really does have everything, but after going to the markets I have seen some lovely home-made items which you just couldn't find anywhere else. I'm considering buying her a musical snow globe, it's a lovely keepsake that will remind her of Christmas time.
I didn't really spend too long looking at presents because the main attraction to the markets for me is the food. The whiff of German sausages and the sweet smell of pancakes had my belly rumbling instantly. For those that know me I'm trapped in a skinny minny body and have an appetite of a pig. I just couldn't resist a big Bratwurst sausage for £4.50 they are the tastiest treats around and as the markets are only here for Christmas why not treat your self.
The stalls which are set out over St Ann's square and Manchester town hall have plenty to offer. This isn't the last time I will be going to the markets as I really want a pancake for my tummy.
Have you been to the Christmas markets this year?
Lots of love Miss Vintage Vibe xo
