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 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 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.
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.
This week see’s a week long celebration of everything independent hit our favourite city. Independents week is set to showcase everything that is great about the local indie scene in Liverpool. From bookstores and bars to cafes and cocktail lounges there’s an independent on practically every street corner meaning there’s no better city to be the unofficial home of the Independents.
When you’re as big a cocktail fan as I am then you aren’t gunna turn down the chance to sample some of Liverpool’s finest beverages all under one roof. On Thursday I was invited along to a sneak preview of Cocktails in the City; every cocktail lover’s dream event that’s hitting Liverpool this Friday.
Sometimes we take for granted where we live. It’s easy to do considering you see the same streets and landmarks day in day out. If you’re anything like me then you either walk along with your head in your phone or listening to music and completely zoning off (probably not the safest way to navigate the city centre of Liverpool.) Although it may mean that I get from A-B in record time I don’t tend to take in any of my surroundings. Liverpool is full of history and culture, it has some of the best looking buildings in the world (am I bias? Probably) and is a tourist hotspot for good reason. Therefore lately I’ve been trying to make a concerted effort to be a tourist in my own city and actually appreciate my surroundings.
