A Short Interlude..

Hi there,

I’m currently spending some time away from the online world which means my blog will be quiet for a while. I have also decided to make my social media accounts private for my own benefit.

I don’t have a set date in mind for when I’ll make my grand return, but please know that I’m grateful for all of the support you have given me over the past 7 years.

I really do love my blog, but the online world can sometime be cruel and I need to learn how to put myself first for once.

The Ideal Travel Backpack

The Mr and I had a little escape this weekend; two blissful nights in the Lake District, hardly any phone signal and quality time to ourselves.

When packing up my bag for the weekend, I didn’t want to take my big yellow suitcase, knowing that I would fill it with things that I don’t need and would likely not use.

So I opted for a small little suitcase, big enough to carry both my hairdryer and straighteners as well as my new Gaston Luga backpack.

University: 10 Years On

Almost 10 years ago to this day, I began my three year journey into University.

I have never been the sharpest crayon in the box, I scraped by on my GCSE’s and did even worse on my A-Levels but I somehow managed to secure a place.

When you’re between the ages of sixteen and seventeen, you begin thinking about which campus you’d like to attend but for me, I’ve always known that I wanted to study at Edge Hill University. From a very young age when I took swimming lessons there, it had always felt like a second home to me and even though I applied to a few other Universities, I knew that there was only one place for me.

The Raincoat Everyone Needs For Autumn

This is quite possibly my least stylish fashion post.

However, I had to talk about the strong love I currently have for my new raincoat. Twenty-eight years old and raving about a raincoat on the Internet. Someone sue me.

I have been saying to the Mr, “I need a proper coat for trips” for a few months now and he is absolutely fantastic with helping me choose any type of clothing. When we visited Cheshire Oaks at the beginning of September, my aim was to at least find a style that I like and potentially purchase one.

This was the second coat I looked at and it came home with me.

The Floral Skirt For The Seasonal Transition

It has reached that point in the year when we all start thinking about the seasonal transition; the denim shorts go into storage and the cosy, chunky knitwear items are brought out from under the bed.

There are a few Summer items of clothing which I have found work well for the Autumnal days; ones in which you can easily pair up with a jumper and a pair of trainers – whatever your style is.

A Mid-Week Treat At Revolution

Sometimes throwing in a treat during the middle of the week is exactly what you need.

The Mr and I were very kindly invited to Revolution at St. Peter’s Square on Thursday evening of last week for a chilled out date night. We have worked with the team before at several locations but we always love returning as the food is so much nicer than people would ever expect.

The one thing I really love about the menu at Revolution is that there is choice for everyone; burgers, pizza, fish and chips, pasta, salads, curries and quite possibly, the best ribs I’ve ever had.

How A Red Midi Skirt Has Boosted My Confidence

Wearing red makes me feel like I am capable of anything.

I’m not sure if it’s the little voice in my head or my brain acknowledging the bright colour I’m wearing, but every time I wear an item of clothing which is red, I feel unstoppable.

The colour red is automatically known for anger, violence and blood. But it is also known for being an exciting colour, one in which can grab attention (just like road signs) and quite frankly, I am here for it.

The Best Italian Food In Liverpool

It is extremely rare that I queue outside a restaurant.

99% of the time it’s because the Mr is impatient or the wait is just that little too long and my hunger can’t handle the anticipation any longer.

But there is one place in which I would happily queue outside of, no matter the time wait and the food has never, ever disappointed me.

That place is called Casa Italia and is quite possibly the best Italian food within Liverpool.  The Mr introduced me to the restaurant about two years ago and ever since, I’ve been in love with the entire menu; trying to order different things each time I go (but always wanting the tagliatelle every single time.
