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.

What I’ve Learnt As A New Driver: One Year On

It’s kind of ironic that as I write this blog post, I’m sitting in a Starbucks across the road from my local Vauxhall garage as my car is seen to for the second time this week.

When I passed my driving test on the 5th February 2018, I wrote a post all about what I’d learnt as a new driver and there was a lot of you who got in touch on social media to voice what you’d also learnt.

The Primark Skirt I Can’t Stop Wearing

I have always been self conscious about my legs.

But with my current weight loss journey, I’ve finally got my confidence back in how I feel about them and more importantly, how they look in tights, skirts and jeans now.

I began searching for skirts to wear for work – not overly short, a little bit stylish and not making my purse cry out in agony.

So where did I go?

Primark, of course!

Exploring Edinburgh Castle

Edinburgh Castle is the most visited, paid tourist attraction within Scotland and despite already visiting the castle in May 2012, I couldn’t resist another visit at the end of October while the Mr and I were exploring the city.

The historic fortress positioned on Castle Rock dominates the skyline of Edinburgh and believe me when I say, it is worth every single penny of entrance.

Top tip: Don’t plan your castle trip in advance, wait until the skies are blue and go on a whim as you can purchase tickets online.

36 Blogmas Ideas

Christmas is one month away.

Let that just sink in.

If you’re a big fan of Christmas like myself, then you may be thinking about doing Blogmas, or if you’re super organised, you’ll have all posts scheduled by now but if not, I’ve got you covered as I’ve created a list of 36 ideas which you can share with your fellow readers.

For those wondering, Blogmas runs from the 1st of December up until the 24th (some people do post on the 25th as well). You essentially write a blog post for every single day and share with your readers.

Believe me when I say, it’s a lot of work.

I’ve brought you 6 ideas for each topic which I write about on my blog so hopefully, there’s something for everyone plus gift guides!

I won’t be doing it this year but you will still have some posts from me..
