Since July, I’ve been on a accidental healthy mission.
I found myself a personal trainer, I work out at least two times a week, I give my body the correct ingredients and I found that cutting out the bad food wasn’t as horrific as I actually thought it was going to be.
I knew that I would miss crisps more than any other food and so, I’ve spent a fair bit of time in the supermarkets trying to find that healthy alternative and eventually, I did.
Not only am I pleased to have discovered Hippeas but I am also honoured to be collaborating with them on this post.

I have challenged myself to Dechox.
You may be thinking of what that is and essentially, I am giving up chocolate for February in support of the British Heart Foundation.
Whether it’s the last chocolate from the Celebrations tin or a cookie with the nephew, I’m saying no to anything with chocolate in it for twenty-eight days.
Anyone can take part. Anyone can sign up. Anyone can say no to chocolate and more importantly: anyone can raise money for a fantastic charity.

When it comes to baking, I’ve always baked what I know: butterfly cakes, Victoria Sponge, lemon meringue pie, apple pie, Eve’s pudding and my well-loved cookies.
But a few weeks ago when I was baking for my Mum’s Macmillan Coffee Morning, I decided to step out of my comfort zone and try something new.
Marble cake is what reminds me of my childhood.
It’s delicious, it’s light, it’s moist (sorry!) and the contrast between vanilla and chocolate is truly wonderful. I found a recipe on BBC Good Food and decided to give it a whirl.

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.

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!

I really love to bake.
From choosing the recipe, to gathering the ingredients, to the finished result and of course, enjoying a slice (or two).
Victoria Sponge is the cake that can be whipped up within an hour without any fuss and not only that, but it can be jazzed up for those very special occasions.

In Liverpool, we have an amazing selection of restaurants and bars for girls night, hen parties, family celebrations, a last minute night out and of course, date night.
Revolution are dotted around the UK which bars in cities such as Leeds, London Manchester and Nottingham and their food menu is divine!
The Mr and I were kindly invited down to the St Peters Square location in Liverpool for a mid-week date night **
** Date night = watching England in the semi-final of the World Cup.

Two years ago in July, the Mr and I had our first date.
We went to the arcade in the Trafford Centre as I wanted to see how much of a fun guy he was and whether he would make me laugh or not. Spoiler: he is very fun and makes me laugh a lot. Afterwards, we had dinner at Wagamama which was a place that I had never been to before but heard a lot about.
Since then, we go at least once every few months (believe me, I could eat there a lot more often) for a relaxing date night in the Liverpool One restaurant.
Seeing as I tend to share photos of our date night over on Instagram, I thought it would be of interest to some of you and perhaps give you some inspiration towards your next date night.
It doesn’t have to be overly fancy, just the two of you enjoying delicious food and great, fun company!

Am I living the blogging dream by writing about cake?
You may know that I often collaborate with bakerdays who are a company who send a range of personalised cakes through your letter box for any occasion whether it’s a birthday, wishing someone good luck, sending your congratulations to a friend or allowing your Dad to eat all the cake for Fathers Day.
Spoiler: He didn’t eat all the cake. We shared.

I love finding new places to eat in Liverpool.
Bold Street in Liverpool is home to multiple independent food spots which are fantastic for any meal of the day.
During the May Bank Holiday, the Mr and I were invited to PieMinister (opposite the opening for Concert Square) to try out their menu and let me tell you: they had me at the décor!
