Until last year Alma de Cuba wasn’t even on my radar, mainly because it’s located on Seel Street and 99% of the time when I’m there I’m bleary eyed and making a beeline for Peacock at 1am. Last Valentine’s Day though my oh so romantic other half booked us a table there and a whole new love affair began. We recently headed back to sample their new summer menu and I can confirm our budding relationship is still going strong.
Before you get stuck into this post there’s something you should know about me. For years I have dubbed myself a lover of winter and hater of summer. Being pale and ever so slightly ginger means that me and heat just don’t go well together. Give me a cosy blanket in autumn any day. This year though a change has occurred. Whilst I’m still an autumn/winter fangirl I’ve been itching for summer. My evenings have been spent pining for a beer garden and my sunglasses have been sat ready to go. Who knows why, maybe I’ve had too many Kopparberg’s, but I am so ready for some sunshine.

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.
Liverpool’s vast array of bars means there’s an option for every occasion. Sometimes having so much choice though means it’s impossible to make a decision. I’ve done the hard work for you therefore and narrowed down 5 of the most cosy and romantic bars across the city for the perfect date night. Thank me later.
If you’re anything like me then you probably spend a good 80% of your week counting down to the weekend. Whether I’ve got 2 days of back to back plans or a weekend of watching Netflix stretching out in front of me, nothing gets my heart a flutter quite like that Friday feeling. Back in my student days Saturday nights were spent stumbling through Concert Square with some cheesy chips in my hand at 3am. Now I’m a sophisticated adult (insert scoff here) however I like to find some alternative ways to spend my evenings. Here are my top ways to spend a Saturday night in Liverpool…
2018 marks the 5th year that I’ve been living in Liverpool (sorry Mum) and in that time I’ve developed a penchant for red salt on my chips, discovered that tequila actually can taste alright when it’s blackcurrant flavoured and realised that when your boyfriend is a Liverpool fan you really do just have to accept that you’ll always be one place behind his beloved reds. That being said there is still a whole host of things on my Liverpool to-do list. Instead of boring you with my new years resolutions (start the gym blah blah blah) I thought I’d share my New Years Liverutions (??) e.g. the things I want to tick of my Liverpool bucket list this year. So without further ado….
If I could have gotten away with it I would have probably written this post in June but I held off for a slightly more appropriate time. In case you hadn’t yet gathered, I LOVE Christmas. It seems about 5 minutes ago that we were eating all the mince pies and blasting Michael Buble every hour of the day but hey, I sure as hell ain’t complaining that it’s time to do that allll over again. If you’re spending any time in Liverpool this December then look no further than my guide to celebrating the run up to the big day in the ‘pool.
