Life // Why Blogging in the North is So Great

I live around 30 minutes from Liverpool and work 20 minutes from Manchester, two of the largest cities in the North West. Both well known for their culture, shops, music scene, nightlife and two popular student cities. Something that’s on the rise though is their blogging culture. The blogger industry is one that has a…

Food // Leaf, Bold Street, Liverpool

On Good Friday the sun was shining and it was the perfect excuse to head into town with my Mum to browse the Easter sales and go for lunch. I’ve heard lots of great things about Leaf but never actually been. Locates half way up Bold Street, it’s neatly tucked away in between lots of…

Beauty // Toning My Hair Grey 

Since we moved house I’ve left my hairdresser behind and my regular appointments for blonde highlights are no more. Instead I’ve started box dying my hair again and this usually spells trouble as I can experiment with colour! I’m loving the soft grey tones that are appearing on my Instagram feed so I decided to…

Life // A Week in Pictures

   The last 7 days have mainly consisted of –  Homemade chicken quesadillas. First attempt wasn’t too bad but I’m excited for another go to get them just right.  What’s that? A new beauty post? It’s been a while since I’ve beauty blogged so this post signals the start of beauty again. A creme egg….that’s…

Beauty // March Favourites 

It’s been a while since a beauty post graced the blog and to be honest, I’ve missed them. Don’t get me wrong, I love food blogging – both creating recipes and sampling new restaurants, but I equally adore investing in new make up. So what better time to do a March favourites haul? Rituals Magic…

Food // Chicken & Chorizo Tray Bake

I think I’ve touched on this before but I’m not really a traditional roast dinner kinda gal. I’m not huge on going to a carvery and I don’t enjoy loads of plain veg smothered in gravy. There I said it. I prefer a mix of roasted Mediterranean veggies with a chicken breast, maybe some stuffing…

Food // Speedy Dinner Ideas on a Budget

Lately I feel like I’ve slipped in old habits and been eating out rather than making meals at home that cost half the price. So to get back into cooking, I took a trip to Aldi and filled the fridge with loads of fresh veggies to give me a much needed kick up the bum…

Food // Federal Cafe, NQ Manchester

Federal cafe is the latest firm blogger fave if you wanna get your avo and eggs fix. So naturally, I thought I better get on the hype and see what the fuss is about! As soon as I arrived, I got it. Cute, kitsch interior with a rustic feel thanks to wooden tables and an…

Drink // Veeno Liverpool Wine Tasting

Earlier this week I was invited along to classic wine bar, Veeno on Castle Street, Liverpool. As a self-confessed lover of wine I was intrigued to try a selection of reds and whites and understand what makes Italian and Sicilian wine just so delicious. Veeno is a small wine bar and what it lacks in…

Food // The Aviary, Ormskirk, Restaurant Review

Since we moved to Ormskirk, I’m on a quest to try the many different restaurants and eateries in the area. And somewhere that caught my eye during a weekend walk was The Aviary. We (I) decided it was the perfect place to take our mums for Mother’s Day and it didn’t disappoint! Set just off…

Home // Meet Molly the Frenchie

Earlier this week our household grew by a member when my boyfriend returned home with a dog!    We’ve spoken loads about getting a dog when we moved in together but I didn’t expect it to be so soon! But last Tuesday I got home from work to find a little girl French Bulldog chilling…

Life // Reading Inspo 

At home you’ll more than likely find me curled up on the couch, either in my reading corner sat in the sun on the weekend (yes, that’s a thing!) or in bed with a magazine.     I’ve always been a magazine addict and as I’ve grown older this habit hasn’t changed. It’s even one of…
