No matter how hard I try to eat healthily I always find myself giving up after the first day and plonking myself on the sofa with enough chocolate to feed a small family. It doesn’t matter what incentive I give myself, the lure of a good burger or dessert always gets the better of me. So when So Shape got in touch to see if I fancied trying out their meal replacement shakes I figured I didn’t really have anything to lose and so I found myself embarking on a 28 day challenge to get my butt into gear.
Sometimes you find yourself a few chapters into a new book and you’re still not fully hooked. Blood Sisters was said book. I persevered however and I’m so glad I did because this ended up being one of the most thought-provoking books I’ve read all year. High praise indeed.
There are a few ways to this gal’s heart but a good burger is up there in the top 3. When I went to sample the menu at Archies as part of their Free Shake Friday’s promotion (more on that later) I was spoilt for choice. With a menu containing everything from burgers and hotdogs to wraps, wings and waffles picking my dinner was no easy task. In the end though, a good ol’ burger is always gunna come out on top.
Sometimes even adopted scousers like to venture out of Liverpool. Today my fellow Liverpool-lover and Wirral-dweller Jack from My Take On Life gives you his top places to eat if you decide to venture over the water….
When trying to decide where to go away for a few days in September we quite literally went around the world. Barcelona, Lisbon and even a mini tour of Italy were all thrown into the mix (and FYI they are all still firmly on the travel bucket list) until we finally settled on Stockholm. Practically every person we mentioned our holiday destination to replied with ‘oh that’s different’ or ‘isn’t Sweden expensive?’ which wasn’t filling me with too much hope. A weekend filled with a whole lot of sight-seeing, eating and ABBA later however and I’m dubbing Stockholm as my new favourite city. BOOM.
Since me and the food afficiondo that is Hungry Harriet discovered we’re both actually 80 inside we seem to have found ourselves in an unofficial book club. When ‘Then She Was Gone’ by Lisa Jewell landed on my desk with promises that I would devour it within a weekend I knew it was time to put the kettle on and not leave the flat for 24 hours…
When I think about Concert Square on a Monday night I tend to think of my student days en route to the Raz and not an evening spent warding of zombies and underwater jellyfish but that’s exactly how you can spend a Monday night at The Boston Pool Loft.
