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.

Three Every Day T-Shirts

During the past few months, I have loved throwing on a t-shirt and a midi skirt. It’s an effortless look but it also looks like I’ve made a lot of effort.

For me, New Look win the high street battle of cute t-shirts, ones in which you can wear everyday – for work, for brunch, for date night or simply to wear whilst during the weekly food shop.

There are three in particular which I’m 99% sure that I’ve been wearing on an accidental rotation recently but they’re soft in material, light to wear and I actually look slightly fashionable.

A Twist On Afternoon Tea

On Monday evening, I was kindly invited to Yard and Coop on Hanover Street in Liverpool, with a group of fellow North West Bloggers.

Initially, we were there to review their Afternoon Tea which isn’t quite what you would expect as Yard and Coop is a chicken based restaurant and comes highly recommended by fellow bloggers.

When it becomes clear that Clare’s killer has more than one murder on his mind, Elizabeth has to take drastic action or face losing everything.

My Weight Loss Journey: One Year On

I have been dedicated to loosing weight for a solid 14 months.

Each week I spend at least two hours in the gym with my personal trainer, I try to walk as much as remotely possible (even though I’m lazy at heart) and my food intake is 100% better than it has ever been.

In the beginning, I was very open about my weight loss journey – sharing workouts on Instagram Stories, showcasing how much weight I’d lost in a week, showing healthier food options when eating out and as much as I loved doing that, it took my mind off my number one focus.

The second I stopped sharing my weight loss journey around January time, I found that I was focusing more on what I thought of myself rather than what strangers online thought of me.

This is our story – hers and mine. It could have been so different if it weren’t for him. There are some secrets you can’t take to the grave, and once the ugly truth is out there’s no going back. I had to act, I had no choice. But I didn’t mean for it to go this far.
