The Royal Exchange, John Stape and Estee Lauder

On Wednesday night I went to see Saturday Night and Sunday Morning at the Royal Exchange in Manchester with my Mum. It was a fantastic building that was a perfect mix of old meets new and had plenty of lovely bars/cafe sections and even a restaurant. The play itself was good, the way they got props in and out was really interesting, and the audience got to see them close up outside the circle before and after the performance which was a nice touch.
If any of you watch Corrie and remember John Stape - the man who played his character was in it, and between him wafting his arms around and running in and out of the circle, a naked woman in a bath, women in underwear running around and the lead man talking (sometimes a little incoherently) very consistently and quickly it all got a bit confusing from time to time, but that all added to it. My mum and I had quite a good giggle to say the least!

Now I'm back in Leeds and Alex is back from Vienna which is lovely, and I was lucky enough to receive a little present from her <3 I've had my eye on this Estee Lauder fragrance for a while, it's quite a classic yet sexy smell and it's a great alternative to my usual sweet daytime fragrances or my Chanel Coco Mademoiselle. I've been wearing it for the past 2 days and it's just so gorgeous! It does smell differently on different people though, (my mum tried it and it was really pungent on her). If you get near it, I'd recommend giving it a spritz and seeing what you think :)

Tonight we went out to the dog racing as a one off bit of fun and we actually really enjoyed it! We played £1-2 bets on the races, drank pints of Coke and ate burgers with onions - it was a really fun night!

I hope you've all had a lovely evening and a good start to the Easter weekend <3
