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.
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.
Mother’s Day lands on Sunday 11th March this year which means you’ve got less than a week to show the number one girl in your life just how much you love her. No matter how much your Mum tells you she doesn’t want a fuss she’ll be sure to get slightly misty eyed when you ensure the whole day revolves around her. When it comes to Mum’s and their babies 9 times out of 10 simply spending time together is all she wants so by picking one of these options you’ll have her gift boxed off and a date in the diary just for you two.
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 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.
