A Day At The Manchester Christmas Markets

Saturday, December 17, 2016

When you think of Christmas in Manchester, I'm pretty sure that the very first thing that comes to mind is the infamous German Christmas markets.

After spending practically the past week bed bound and full of a cold, I was so excited to finally recover and get into the festive spirit. Me and my boyfriend headed down to the Christmas markets for a day of pigging out on nutella filled crepes and buying unnecessary bric a brac style goodies. 

If you are able to visit the Christmas Markets and leave without indulging in any of the food choices available then I take my hat off to you because that must involve a serious amount of willpower. With an array of cakes, fudges, hot dogs, burgers and then of course.. nutella coated everything; it's pretty impossible to resist! The hot chocolates were dreamy too, topped with marshmallows, whipped cream and a flake; I was in heaven! Although, unfortunately for me the cream decided to drip everywhere, making it pretty much impossible to capture that perfect Instagram worthy shot. 

I just love the festive feeling that surrounds the air at the markets. With everyone excitedly indulging in seasonal treats and buying as many unnecessary last minute Christmas tree decorations as possible, there truly is nothing like the hustle and bustle of a true festive city market.

I wish I had more photos to share with you all. I'm still quite shy when it comes to shooting in busy locations. Improving my confidence and producing more outfit shots in the city is definitely something I want to work upon next year. Nevertheless, I hope you have enjoyed this short yet sweet insight into my day at this year's markets. I cannot believe that Christmas is now just 8 days away! And if you're still not feeling festive, head to the markets, treat yourself with some mulled wine and you'll be sure to be feeling merry in no time! 

What are you most excited about for Christmas this year?!
