Hours in the day. There are just never enough of them.

To us nowadays it seems to have become a lifetime ago that we were relishing in the bliss of those absurdly late nights along with their accompanying absurdly late mornings, and on a few occasions, giving a well deserved warm welcome, to the three day long weekend.
Since our minor blogging hiatus from mid-August till, well, today; believe us, a few weeks away from posting articles translates to a very, very long time; we've been fully engaged with other priorities, time-consuming yet, rather exciting to say the least.

Call us cliché but it is true to say, there is simply no rest for the wicked, that is, unless you receive an invite to the opening of a new store and the last one we attended, we thought, was worth the shout.

It's common knowledge that Manchester's Northern Quarter is an area of the city which withholds it's reputation for surprising even the most familiar of people with hidden treasures; it's most recent contribution calls itself The Watch Stop.
A comfortable sized store sitting at the Great Ancoats end of Tib Street; their serene atmosphere and swanky interior complements the in-house brands on display, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Casio to name a few; granting us a more relaxed feel on entering, akin to that of it's neighbouring NQ retailers.

Music sounding and canapes on arrival; tempting us throughout the evening with miniature falafel burgers (Verity...) is always a greatly recieved perk of the job, as well as the limitless cocktails, but the cherry on top of these guy's generosity came in the form of a courtesy wrist watch. Minimalist girls at heart, after our introduction to the Madison made Candy Time watches, we settled on a nude or creme shade and it hasn't left our arms ever since.

Holding an extensive collection of these Manchester exclusives; we suggest you head over to The Watch Stop and have fun trying to choose yours.
