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.
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….
When October hits, my inner Kevin McCallister is itching to get out and spread some Christmas joy. For most people though, it’s still a bit too soon to be uttering words such as tinsel and mince pie. Therefore I tend to put all of my festive fever into celebrating halloween with a bang. Luckily for me (and you) Liverpool has plenty of spooky shenanigans to keep you occupied over the most chilling celebration of all.
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….
A couple of weeks ago I went along to one of my favourite Liverpool haunts, The Clubhouse, for an evening of cocktail shaking and sipping with the guys from Aperol. In case you haven’t yet figured it out I’m quite the cocktail fan and the idea of spending a post-work summers evening sipping 2017’s coolest cocktail wasn’t met with too much resistance.
