Hi everyone. Time for a quick recap on what I have been doing with my bad self. Well, on Thursday night, I went out for drinks with friends, and it was such good fun. You know those nights where you just talk about anything and everything? Well it was one of those. These are friends who always make me laugh too, so there was plenty of laughter. Then Friday came around like a welcome old friend, and I headed out for the evening again...!
Although it is almost too cold to sit outside now, we pretended that it was still summer and huddled around a table with a glass of Pinot Grigio (me) and a pint of Guinness (him) chatting and watching the world go by. Saturday I slept in for so long that I felt as though I had hibernated. I eventually awoke and saw soft yellow sunlight filtering through the bedroom curtains, so I jumped up and went for a 5 mile run. Just kidding, had you there for a second though! I spent a couple of hours making myself look vaguely human and then headed into Liverpool for some lunch and shopping. There was more than a hint of autumn in the cool air, and I forgot about everything apart from the breeze, the architecture and the beauty of the city. Liverpool and me is a love story that I hope will never end. This city makes me feel so many emotions and it never ceases to amaze me how lovely the people are here. You can have so many interesting conversations with strangers here, there is a warmth and kindness that is particular to this city. Here is my outfit of the day from Saturday:
Everything Primark except for the bag, which is from Forever 21.
The jacket is faux fur.
Anyway, lunch on Saturday was at a beloved old haunt of mine, Olive Restaurant and Bar on Castle Street, Liverpool. I have been going to this restaurant for years,back when it was called The Olive Press, and it never disappoints.
We had a starter of Fresh Houmous with Ciabatta Croûtes, which was delicious. The bread was crispy and light and the houmous was drizzled with pesto and topped with olives. On to the mains, being the pizza monster that I am, I opted for a Pizza Margherita. The base was light and crispy, stonebaked (just as a good pizza base should be) and there was the perfect amount of melted mozzarella on top, counterbalanced with a tangy tomato sauce. Perfect.
My dining partner had a Pollo Pesto pizza, topped with roast chicken, roasted red peppers, mozzarella and green pesto. I sampled some and it was heaven on a plate. For dessert, there was Tiramisu, I only had one spoonful because I was full but it was superb.
All in all, another perfect meal and I enjoyed it so much. Special shout out to Matt who served us and was so friendly, kind and obliging to our every request. It really makes a difference when you eat out if you have a lovely person like this tending to your table.

After lunch, it was time for shopping and a Starbucks break of course :)
I love Liverpool so much.
Bobbi Brown, be still my beating heart!
A quick recharge in Starbucks, post-shopping. I had iced tea.
