About Me

Things to do in Edinburgh

I’m a Manchester based blogger, whose day job is in digital marketing.


I began this blog as an online diary for documenting my life and style, the food I love to eat, the places I visit and the city I adore. Gabriella Manchester (much to my amazement) now has many readers all over the world and I’ve had the privilege of working with the likes of Harvey Nichols, Thomas Cook Airlines, Air France, Green & Blacks and Grey Goose Vodka. Thank you for reading this, I love to know if you’re enjoying my content so do get in contact.
