Dough Pizza Kitchen, Manchester

I love finding new places to eat so after reading Victoria's best places to eat and drink in Manchester, Dough was at the top of my list and it didn't disappoint. The restaurant is tucked away in Manchester's Northern Quarter next to cocktail bar Apotheca and we found it quite easily which is always good!

There's lots on the menu including plenty of vegan, vegetarian and gluten free options, I opted for the Pesto Chicken pizza which was amazing and the chicken tasted really fresh - a million times nicer than the processed chicken you get on shop bought pizzas!  We also ordered the Rosemary Focaccia as a starter which was the perfect size to share between the four of us without leaving us too full for the main. The girls had Pulled Pork and Fiorentina pizzas and loved theirs too so Dough is a really good choice if you're dining in a group as there's something for everyone on the menu. I'm not sure what the desserts are like as I didn't have room for one but i'll definitely be going back to try one soon, I just wish pizza wasn't quite so filling!

My pizza was £9.20 which I thought was really reasonable for an independent restaurant. I love that the food is cooked at the front of the restaurant in front of you so you can see it's all made freshly because there's nothing more disappointing than a meal that you know has been re-heated! The only thing I can fault was the service which was a little slow but it was Saturday afternoon so I can't really complain especially as we managed to get a table straight away without booking. I'd definitely recommend Dough if you're looking for somewhere for lunch or dinner that won't break the bank and if you're a pizza addict like me, you can't go wrong!

You're The Clearest Sky In The Darkest Weather

I like to use Valentine's Day as an excuse to spend the day eating/shopping/baking/listening to my favourite music and this year has been no exception (nothing much has changed since 2011!).

I bought a new jumper and jeans from Topshop - they were guilt-free as I bought them with vouchers and the jumper has been on my wishlist for far too long so I have no regrets!

I indulged in my new favourite treat: Marks & Spencer Toffee Fudge & Belgian Chocolate Hot Cross Buns - perfection!

I played the new Kodaline album on repeat - I haven't stopped listening to it since I downloaded it last week! The One might just be my favourite song of 2014 so far!

I shared an Indian takeaway with my mum and spent the evening watching my favourite vlogs and reading magazines ...and I didn't spend any time worrying about my assignment deadline tomorrow!

I hope you've had a lovely weekend, whatever your plans were!
