Review // Revolution Bar, Cavern Quarter, Liverpool

Revolution is one of those bars that you remember from your younger years. A variety of cocktails, sticks of multi-flavoured shots and everyone had a mate who had an elusive Revs card…meaning cheaper drinks for everyone! However, I was recently invited to one of the Vodka Revolution bars in Liverpool. Tucked away in the city’s famous Cavern Quarter and just backing onto Dale Street; I was kindly invited to sample their new cocktail menu, however, upon arrival it seems Revs are changing their ways as we were greeted with a beautifully decorated interior, marble topped tables and pretty low hanging light fittings. Once seated in our corner, watching over the seated area and having a nosey at what our fellow customers were ordering; we got stuck into the cocktail menu! Initially, we were spoilt for choice. I had a hankering for a pornstar martini, so I was happy to see one listed on the menu, but the rest was so hard to choose from! With a variety of the classic vodka, rum and gin cocktails …

Party // Easy Mocktail Recipes with Feelgood 

December is nearly upon us and I’m already thinking about my much-needed time off over the festive season. But it’s not all mulled wine and mince pies as I’m actually working a lot so won’t be able to indulge in as much red wine and prosecco as I would like….which is why having a couple of fruity mocktail recipes in your arsenal is a godsend! I’ve collaborated with Feel Good drinks to create this post and prove how fun, tasty and colourful mocktails can be! I was so surprised by how many flavours are available in the range and I plan to enjoy fruity drinks without a dash of alcohol so I can join in the fun – without having to go to work with a hangover! Whilst the brand may focus on water-based drinks, it doesn’t mean mocktails can’t be fun too! Each flavour is suitably fruity too and so refreshing, so we had lots of fun sampling each flavour and creating pretty imagery to show to you guys how great the drinks are! …

Drinks // Be At One, Liverpool, Launch Party

Last week I dusted off my dancing shoes and headed to the luxurious Be At One launch party. A stylish new cocktail bar based on Seel Street; it was easy to see why this new haunt is set to become the talk of the town! Neatly tucked away on Seel Street, Be At One is wonderfully modern, full of colour and well practiced at making delicious cocktails! The interior really impressed me with a gorgeous neon sign on the wall and an amazing terrace complete with coloured stools – it’s that little attention to detail that really makes a bar stand out in my book. But onto the main event – the drinks! I had a look at the rather extensive cocktail menu – I was spoilt for choice with daiquiri’s, pina colada’s and mojitos on the menu in every flavour you could wish! However I stuck to my guns and went with my current summer favourite – an aperol spritz. Delicious! Once I’d snapped away I sat on the terrace, taking in the colour …

Cocktail Hour

On Thursday I made a trip to one of my favourite cities, Manchester, for the Jessie Ware gig at Sound Control. I love gigs in manc as it means I get to book the day off work, go for a lovely meal and have a coupla cocktails!  Oh and celeb spot as we saw Lydia Rose Bright from towie launching something fashion-related in the Arndale. In a silver dress with a 20’s inspired hair-do she looked gorge. My fangirling is growing! On this particular trip I decided to treat myself to a new fooundation. I have been wearing Mac Studio Fix for a couple of years now but read so much about Estee Lauder Double Wear and wanted to try it. I got matched up at the Estee Lauder stand in Selfridges. The MA tried 3 shades on me and I settled on the dersert beige shade. As I am naturally very pale and I don’t tan or use bronzer! I got a free double ended Double Wear concealer and mascara as well which was nice. …
