It’s official: pins are cool again


Alright folks, newsflash: pins are cool again.   You heard me. We all remember the 90’s when literally everyone was covered head-to-toe with pins – band pins, fan pins, statement pins, those tacky “peace” signs… it was a question of quantity over quality. I remember having a little machine with which to actually make my own. It was the done…

Is this the best hairdresser in Chester?


Honey, you know a good hairdresser is worth their weight in gold and when you find one, you hold on to them for dear (hair) life. I found my hairdresser almost two years ago and ever since (hair) destiny brought us together, I have refused to let anyone else even approach my hair with utensils with which to cut it.…

No – you do not need to tolerate intolerance


  You’ve all heard it before, the classic comeback to when you refute someone for saying something unacceptable: “If you’re so tolerant then you have to tolerate my intolerance”, usually served with a side of smug-face and the absolute conclusion they’ve bested you at your own game.   Except they haven’t. Tolerance in no way requires one to be tolerant…

I went to Chester Craft Beer Festival and this is what it was like


  Honestly, I’m still recovering from the onslaught of amazing beer on Saturday.

New cocktail menu at the Suburbs


Honey I don’t need to be told many times that a chic little boutique bar is launching, not only a new cocktail menu, but also a new food menu. No honey, once was enough. The minute I heard that Suburbs in Hoole was revamping their offerings I was out the door so quick it would have made your head spin.…

How to survive a hangover at work


  Oh don’t look at me like that – we’ve all been there. Maybe you had one cocktail too many (or in my case, five) or missed the last bus so you thought “well, since I’m gonna have to take a taxi anyway I might as well have one more glass of wine” and that turned into shots of tequila…

Marvellously Moroccan Kasbah Cafe Bazaar


I love Bold Street in Liverpool. It’s the eclectic centre of the city, filled with quirky shops, cafes, tea parlours, and eateries. People walking up and down the street are like from a hipster fashion show, with pieces probably bought in the shop next door you spot them. I fell in love with Bold Street years ago when I did…

How to be brave (and what does that mean)


Let me tell you a secret: bravery is not the absence of fear. While you let thank sink in, allow me to elaborate.   I fear many things. I fear rejection, I fear failure, I fear something terrible happening to me or my loved ones, especially right now with what’s going on in the world. I also have this weird…

Chester’s new vintage haunt is more than a shop


  What happens when you combine creative local entrepreneurs, some superb fashion, crafty gifts and some random bits and bobs that don’t really seem to fit anywhere but totally belong some weird way? The 2nd Floor on Northgate Street, that’s what.     It was a bloggers day out on Saturday when Polly and I hit the town with the…
