Month: July 2018

Revolution, St Peter’s Square, Liverpool

Revs is one of those places you think of for stag do’s, hen do’s and basically the place you used to head to on a uni night out for cheap drinks and shots. Being from Wigan, Revs is one of the places that I used to go to for food and drinks, so when the Revs St Peter’s Square branch got in touch inviting me along to trial the new menu, I was ready to go with a rumbling belly… We were invited along to review the lunch menu which compromised of a starter, main and a drink. The menu was separated into starters, sharing boards, mains, pizzas and burgers. We chose the Street Food Crate to share to start – filled with mini beef burgers, buttermilk fried chicken strips, two slices of pepperoni pizza, BBQ dusted chunky chips and dips. It was v v enjoyable and so moreish. However, upon receiving the bill at the end, the platter wasn’t included in the lunch deal so beware if you’re ordering using the lunch offer. It …

Life Lately – July Round-Up

July is another month that’s passed me by in a blur. These summer months are by far my fave thanks to the never-ending sunshine, enjoying great food and exploring new places on the doorstep. Here’s what happened – The lovely Laura over at My Foodie Journey headed over to the Titanic Hotel as I sadly couldn’t make it. The extremely picturesque Liverpool landmark hotel hosted an intimate bloggers evening of cocktails and canapes on the terrace. I’m told it was a lovely summers eve and the perfect spot to enjoy an #Instagram worthy drink or two. Thanks Laura for heading along for me! Towards the end of the month we headed across to Sefton Park to LIMF – Liverpool International Music Festival. Tickets were just a fiver and with a restaurant review planned just down the road, it was the perfect excuse to tick Trevor Nelson off the bucket list. Dancing along to old school RnB was just what the Dr ordered. The fiance surprised me with a wedding planner. We got engaged a couple …

Just Wings, Aigburth Road Liverpool

Since moving to South Liverpool we’ve enjoyed exploring the many different areas on our doorstep – Wooton Village is just a stones throw away, Otterspool prom is perfect for dog walks and Aigburth Road is home to Space Coffe, our new breakfast haunt and further up you’ll find Just Wings… As the name suggests, this place specialises in all things Chicken. Burgers, wings and a boat load of sides – all available in 12 different rubs or sauces for both the weaklings amongst us (hi!) and those who love to indulge in mouth-watering spicy food every now and again. We popped along on a Saturday evening before heading to LIMF in Sefton Park. Handily located, towards the top of Aigburth Road, it’s easy to get too by either bus or train. We rocked up with rumbling bellies and with a few menu recommendations in our arsenal, we got to grips with the menu. The menu may be small, but it’s certainly might. Just WingsJust Wings is part of a Merseyside chain or takeaways and the …

An Introduction to Soap & Glory Bodycare

I’m a long-time fan of Soap and Glory products and they’re my go-to when I fancy a pamper sesh. I read this post from I Like Tweet this morning asking if skincare is the new self-care and I couldn’t agree more. Taking the time to lock myself in the bathroom with a range of products to soak, steam and scrub leaves me feeling so refreshed. Soap and Glory is a brand that’s been in my bathroom for years. Every Christmas I hope that Darren will have taken his annual trip to Boots in an attempt to secure me the huge bumper pack of goodies at a discount price. Earlier this year I was lucky enough to be selected to join the Soap and Glory new micro-bloggers project, aptly names ‘Babes of Glory‘. Receiving just two mini’s added my never-ended and always evolving collection. Ill go on record to say that no body wash shaves your legs (and other bits…) as well as the Sugar Crush Body Wash and my small but mighty bottle of Heel …

July Birchbox Review

I’ve been subscribed to Birchbox for a good few months now and whilst, I do sometimes get bored of the familiar samples that arrive month on month; every few boxes I get to try a box full of brand new products. Welcome, July… As much as I’m a makeup fan, I love receiving hair, body and skincare products in my box. I don’t know about you, but buying shampoo, conditioner and shower gels are often a chore. The products I need to use daily/weekly but I’d rather be spending it on a new foundation or lippie. I’m yet to try these products but I’ve added them to my evening shower stash and will be trying them out over the next few weeks. Reviews in full coming soon…

Getting Engaged & Unecessary Pressure

I feel like I’ve taken a much more lax view to blogging lately. I’m enjoying sharing little snippets here and there and working with brands that I enjoy and want to share. I thought I’d check in with a little life update and to share these photos I took earlier this week. We’ve been in our new house for 8 weeks now and it’s slowly coming together. We can’t decorate just yet with it being a new build, but we’re enjoying choosing colour schemes for each room and having already got all of our furniture, we only need to buy the little things aka lampshades, curtains, rugs etc. The best bits essentially! I love having fresh flowers in the house and our bay window in the lounge is the perfect spot for a large bouquet of blooms. The lovely people over at Appleyard London got in touch recently asking if I’d like to receive one of their Purity bouquets,   I was more than happy to oblige and work with the brand. I’ve been torn on …
