Tessuti Christmas Event

So I may have lived in Manchester for the past 27 years, but when I started to attend events, I realised just how little I know about my beautiful city. My latest discovery was the Oast House in Manchester's Spinning Fields. It's such a little gem in the middle of the bustling city, I wouldn't have known it was there if it wasn't for the Tessuti event held in their teepee (yes, teepee!) last week. I was invited to have a sneak peak at the Canada Goose range that Tessuti stock, and I couldn't have wished for a better location.

To start of with, it's possibly the most Christmassy place I have ever been. It is literally a giant teepee, located just outside the main building of the Oast House. It's covered in magical fairy lights and looks like a grown up version of Santa's Grotto. The smell is overwhelmingly delicious, it hit us as soon as we entered the tent (which is a Tardis and actually huge!). We were then showed to the event which was taped off at the back of the teepee near the fire where the lovely Jenn and Natalie greeted us with prosecco. After a catch up and mingle with my fellow Manchester bloggers, we were served what can only be described as a mountain of kebabs, salad, chips, dips and roasted vegetables and it was out of this world! Not to stop at that, it was then finished off with strawberry and marshmellow, chocolate covered kebabs. I suppose I should have taken a picture of the food, but to be honest, we finished it off so quickly I just didn't have time!

So I had better mention the actual reason for the event; the coats and the fab Tessuti. Tessuti have a number of shops up and down the country, as well as a popular website. One of the brands they stock is Canada Goose, which is the well loved brand of incredible coats and jackets. The coats are possibly the warmest I have ever tried on, perfect for this time of year. I fell in love with the black short parker style jacket, and was super excited when I heard we would have a chance to win one of our very own by playing a pub quiz...I was less excited when Jenn told us it was all about Canada, a country I now realise I know nothing about! Nevertheless, it was super fun and brought out our competitive side! Gail and I teamed up and were not exactly great, but a shout out to Natalie who may or may not have helped us a tiny bit... :)

To finish off the night, we were given a beautifully wrapped Christmas present and a personalised bauble, which has to be the cutest, most thoughtful gift form a blogging event! The present included some amazing House of Holland nails which are absolutely perfect for Christmas! It was another great night in a great location, with lovely girls. I will definitely be returning to the Oast House and I can 100% recommend it!
