Emerald Street comes to Manchester

How many emails do you get that you delete without even opening?

Scanning through emails has become something of an Olympic sport for me, I love clearing my inbox(s) of anything that isn’t of interest, saving the few I do want to open and read until last.

One of those which gets opened frequently, and even more so now- probably every day, is the Emerald Street email.

The reason I’ve been treasuring this email newsletter and opening it more than ever before, is because they now have a Manchester specific version of Emerald Street.

If you are thinking, What the heck is Emerald Street then allow me to explain;

Emerald Street is the newsletter from the fabulous Stylist Magazine, the free, weekly publication that is still so refreshing after seven years. There are many reasons to love Stylist/Emerald Street but I particularly love that it does not promote plastic surgery or daft diets, and it’s so inclusive. It genuinely feels written for everyone, whilst being just for me at the same time (how is that possible!).

I mourned the loss of the digital version of Stylist last year, but still managed to grab a copy of it on the occasions I went into the city centre. Saving it to read once the kids were in bed, I dont really get that feeling with many magazines these days- do you?

Now there is a dedicated Manchester version of Emerald Street along with a dedicated Manchester editor, which has filled the hole that my digital edition of Stylist left behind.

This Emerald Street is full of places I actually know (and some I dont) and makes me feel reconnected to my city, in a way which I missed after moving away from the city centre and having kids. I feel I can keep up with what’s really going on in the region, that is relevant to me. And I actually love the fact that its daily and I dont have to wait for it once a week!

I’m really excited to see what Emerald Street does in our fair city. If you fancy getting this gem of an email in your inbox too, then sign up here.

    Ooh! Much excite! I have read the London one daily for years, I love the recent addition of news items and thought pieces at the end, as well as books and places to eat and (annoyingly for my bank balance) gorgeous things to buy! I’ve even featured in one email about changing careers! But obviously now I live in Huddersfield the London one is a bit irrelevant for me, even though I am down quite a bit for work, I don’t get a chance to check out new bars, but I am quite often in Manchester and always exploring so I am definitely going to sign up for this one instead now, thanks for the heads up! x
