It’s a beautiful day in Manchester and four friends are meeting for a birthday lunch. But then they witness a shocking accident just metres away which acts as a catalyst for each of them. For Laura, it’s a wake-up call to heed the ticking of her biological clock. Sensible Jo finds herself throwing caution to the wind in a new relationship. Eve, who has been trying to ignore the worrying lump in her breast, feels helpless and out of control. And happy-go-lucky India is drawn to one of the victims of the accident, causing long-buried secrets to rise to the surface.

Not Your Average Sunday Roast

Fun fact: Pie and mash is David Beckham’s favourite meal of all time.

We are very lucky to have so many incredible food spots in Liverpool and Bold Street is home to multiple independent restaurants as well as a few chain ones.

Pie Minister is exactly what it says on the tin: PIES.

The Mr and I were kindly invited back to their Bold Street restaurant to try their Roast Pie which is a twist on the classic Sunday roast and new to their Autumn menu.

Protecting My Skin Through The Colder Months

Skin care on a daily basis is very important to me.

Yet when we land ourselves in late September, I find myself wanting to take even more care of my skin because having a dry face isn’t on my to-do list.

For the past year or so, I’ve been trying to find face masks that really work for my skin and believe me, I’ve tried my fair share of them. I’ve tried the cucumber peels from Sephora as well as the Garnier face peels but neither of them seem to do much for my face.

That is where L’Oreal come into the mix because their skin care is amazing.

Scribbled in secret after endless days, sleepless nights and missed weekends, Adam Kay’s diaries provide a no-holds-barred account of his time on the NHS front line.

The Pinafore I Can’t Stop Wearing

I am obsessed with pinafores.

The second Autumn strikes, I become obsessed with pinafores. Not only are They incredibly easy to wear during the transitional period between Summer and Autumn, but they’re comfortable and quite stylish.

One brand who I am a huge fan of is Red Herring. When I need a staple piece for my wardrobe, I usually head to New Look or to the corner of Debenhams where Red Herring are situated.

A solid 70% of my wardrobe is Red Herring and not only is the quality fantastic but the prices are really good in case you’re watching the pennies.

Date Night At The Albert Dock

It is safe to say that healthy eating was thrown out of the window on this particular evening..

During the Summer, the Mr and I were kindly invited to Revolution in St. Peter’s Square whilst watching England in the World Cup Semi-Final, but ever since we went there, we’ve been intrigued to try out more of the Revolution bars within Liverpool.

The Royal Albert Docks is one of my favourite spots in the city and within the docks, there is a real mixture of independent and chain restaurants such as Revolution.

The wonderful team at Revolution Albert Docks kindly invited the Mr and I for a Saturday date night and so, we said yes!

The £4 Highlighter I’m Obsessed With

I have a slight obsession with highlighters.

Oh, but not just any highlighters – Make Up Revolution highlighters.

I’ve been using their Ultra Pro Glow palette for months and months and months – hitting pan on one particular shade and after spotting a similar shade in singular packaging, I decided to treat myself.

£4 isn’t going to break the bank, is it?

Why I Believe In Asking The Universe

I have been extremely vocal on my blog and across my social media platforms about my recent period of being unemployed but that all changed last month when I found myself a new job with a company that I adore.

Some say I got the job because of my experience, because of my interview skills, because I was true to myself and my capabilities and yes, I do believe that all of those points are possible and one if not two of them are the truth.

But I asked the universe for this job and six hours later, I was offered the role.
