Queen Street, Queens House, Manchester, Greater Manchester M2 5HT
Do NOT go to Toni and Guy for a haircut. They dyed my hair completely wrong. The hairdresser turned up late and dyed my hair the way I specifically asked them NOT to dye it.
I realise that as a 'model’ you don’t get the full treatment but this was a joke.
2 Canal Street, Manchester, Greater Manchester M1 3HE
Velvet is in the heart of the Gay village and is a great place to eat out day or night. The food is reasonably priced and they have a great selection on the menu. The decor is very cosy but stylish and modern at the same time. It is a good place to go in the daytime for a quiet meal but gets busy at night. The music they play is mellow and the atmosphere is chilled out. This is a great place to go before hitting the brash clubs and bars of the gay village.
They have great wine and a wide selection of drinks that are reasonably priced and the staff are very quick and helpful. Recommended.
Mill Gate Shopping Centre, Bury, Greater Manchester BL9 0QQ
This is a great independent music shop in Bury. If you cant get to Manchester but want an imported record or hard to find album then this is a great place to go. The prices are cheap and they cater for every taste. The staff are friendly and are more than happy to help you. The shop itself is clean and tidy and it is easy to find what you are looking for. Recommended.
111 Portland Street, Manchester, Greater Manchester M1 6DN
This is a great place to eat cheap chinese food in a nice resteraunt. They have loads of dishes on offer and they are always cooked to a high standard. The reseraunt its self it decorated to a good standard, sometimes with buffets you feel like you are in a school canteen but not here. The staff are so friendly and the service is very quick so you could easily come here on your lunch break. It can get very busy though so avoid the busy times.
Manchester, Greater Manchester M1 1HW
The Metrolink has been going for years and was meant to be a qhick and cheap alternative to the bus for getting into the centre of Manchester but it has steadily gone down hill. It is expensive £120 for a one month pass, there are constant delays and the service in general is terrible. At rush hour it is a nightmare, they only put two carriages on and there can be literally 100 people waiting at the tram stop. If you can get to Manchester by bus do- it may take longer but there are no delays and your pocket will feel the benefit.
11 New Cathedral Street, Manchester, Greater Manchester M1 1AD
A quirky shop that sells beauty products, kitchen products and everything inbetween. It is moderately priced and you can find some real gems in here. I love the Burt’s Bees beauty they have here, their face cream is exensive but fantastic and all natural. It is a big shop and is more like a home ware shop and their products are very high quality. If you are looking for some fancy drinking glasses or a new wok or maybe a book on cocktails then come here. The staff are friendly and it has a friendly atmosphere. Recommended.
107 The Dome, Manchester, Greater Manchester M17 8DF
A beautiful and boutique-y skin care shop. They have beautiful fragranced soap and creams that are of a stunning quality, and though expensive, it is worth the money. Think of body shop but more traditional and better quality. The shop is always bright and smells gorgeous and the staff are really helpful too. If you are looking for high quality beauty products that don’t promise to make you look 20 years younger then this is the place for you.
82 Market Street, Manchester, Greater Manchester M46 0DP
Boots sell every beauty and medicinal product under the sun and they will always have what you want in, in stock. Personally I only shop in Boots as a last resort because of price. There are many more places you can go that are much cheaper i.e. superdrug,body care, lloyds and buy the same brand products but at half the price. They can charge the full price because Boots is a British staple of our beauty diet but I would look else where. The one redeeming thing about Boots though is their christmas offers where you can buy 3 for 2 gift sets which are very good value for money.

Pauls Hair World on Oldham Street is the best place to go to buy anything for hair care. It mainly caters for afro-carribean hair and sells products at really great prices, much cheaper that anywhere else. You can buy professional products aswell which unless you are a trader are hard to come by. The staff are helpful and will give you good advice.
They sell hair extensions, bleach, hairdye (mainly for afro hair) and specialist hair treatments.
If you are a DIYer then this is the place to go as they have all the tools you will need at very cheap prices. Well worth a look. Recommended.
sunshine studios, newton street, Manchester, Greater Manchester M1 1ED
Upper Space art gallery is quite new to Manchester and is in Sunshine Studios, a smaller version of Afflecks palace and much better. The gallery is small but well laid out and concentrates on street/subversive/underground art. They have prints, canvasses and small sculptures on show and the art is of an excellent quality and from emerging Manc artists. It is great to have a gallery dedicated to street art and not just Banksy rip-offs, and the fact that the artists are Manchester based is fantastic. The prices of art are affordable too. It is a great place to dicover new art and buy art that is truly unkown. Recommended.
