Why I Love Living in Liverpool

Why I Love Living in Liverpool

I don’t think it’s much of a secret that I bloody love living in Liverpool. I’m now approaching the fifth anniversary since I packed my bags and moved up north and boy have I never looked back. Considering both my day job and my blog are dedicated to the fabled home of The Beatles it’s a good job I can’t see myself getting bored of it any time soon. There are very few places that could ever lure me away (I mean a gal couldn’t say no to New York or Sydney) and here’s why Liverpool will always have my heart.

Book Review: The Rebel

Book Review: The Rebel

The Rebel was said book. I started this on the train home on the Friday and finished it on the train back on the Monday and that was despite my best attempts to make it last as long as possible.

3 Ways to Unwind After Work

3 Ways to Unwind After Work

No matter how much you love your job I can bet your evenings and weekends (or whenever it is that you aren’t working your ass off) are still your favourite time of the week. For me, my evenings are a precious jewel in my day. It’s the time when I get to see my flatmate and other half, to binge-watch friends until I fall asleep to the tones of “WE WERE ON A BREAK” and when I can commit some serious hours to this lil ol’ blog of mine. Despite often feeling like I’ve got a never ending to-do list full of life admin to make my way through, there are a few things that I like to do in an evening to get some of that all important zen. No matter what your plans are, finding the time for at least one of these each evening should stop you from combusting with stress at any given moment *not official medical advice.

Adding Personality to Your Home

Adding Personality to Your Home

For me, my home is one of the most important elements of my life. I love opening the front door to an environment that makes me feel calm and is decorated just how I like it. The thing is, this isn’t always possible. I don’t own my own home and went from living with my parents to uni accommodation to now renting out my apartment. Sometimes when you’re a renter it can feel like you can’t put your own stamp on the place however there are some things you can do to make it feel more like home. If you’re a bit stuck on how to add some personality to your living space look no further…

Why We Should All Print Out Our Photos

Why We Should All Print Out Our Photos

If you’re anything like me the camera roll on your phone will be chocka block with holiday snaps, night out selfies and instagramable brunches. I’m such a photo hoarder that I regularly get the dreaded notification to tell me my storage is nearly full and so begins the heart wrenching task of deciding which photos to say goodbye to.

Why City Breaks Are Your New Best Friend

Why City Breaks Are Your New Best Friend

I love city breaks. The past 3 holidays I’ve been on have been of the city break variety and each time I fall a little bit more in love with spending a few days exploring, city guide in hand. While I enjoy a beach holiday as much as the next person (and I am hoping to see some sun this year) it’s the short and sweet city break that has my heart.
