Weekend

Saturday
Shoes - Clarks
Coat - New Look
Dress - Peacocks
Bag - Asos

Saturday
(This is one of the two cathedrals that Liverpool has, it is the Roman Catholic one. Scousers call it 'Paddy's wigwam, because the bishop of Liverpool was called Patrick and well errr it looks like a wigwam! I love how modern it looks, really contrasts with the Anglican one, which is also beautiful.)

I've had a lovely weekend! On Saturday we went for a scary bank appointment about mortgages and it looks like we may me moving out soon (once we find our perfect place! Think we need to call Phil & Kirsty in...). Afterwards we went into Liverpool to do a little bit of shopping. The plan was to go and watch Tron Legacy, but instead we went for tapas at Lunya and ended up WAY too full to think about sitting in a dark room watching a film. We had a little bit of retail therapy and then visited my friend Corinne who works in Brew Tea Bar. If you ever visit Liverpool, you need to visit Lunya and Brew, they are my 2 fave places! They also both sell their stuff online which is great. Brew specialise in loose leaf tea and different tea based drinks. I had a sangria fruit punch steamer, which is a fruity type tea with bits of fruit in it. Perfect to warm myself up with. They also do it in a chilled icey version with frozen fruit and it's lovely in the summer. They also do green tea lattes and earl grey lattes! I tried the green tea latte once though and it nearly made me sick, but the earl grey latte is lovely.

I have wore my new coat all weekend, I love it and it was such a bargain. I saw it in the shop before Christmas at full price, £45, but thought 'nah, don't really need another coat and it might not be that good quality', then I saw it on the website after Christmas reduced to £15!! That's 2/3 off! So I ordered it straight away and it arrived on the same day that my peter pan collar dress from Peacocks did too, that Carla was tweeting about the other night, so thanks for the tip off Carla! You can't quite appreciate my new coat in all it's glory because my hair is covering up the cute fur collar. I also can't decide what colour it is, coraly red? I like it anyway, even if it does clash slightly with my bright red shoes.

I didn't really buy anything in Liverpool, but I did buy some new cereal bowls (this blog may end up mostly featuring new housey purchases in the future!). No ordinary cereal bowls of course, Cath Kidston cereal bowls. I got 2 dotty and 2 spray flowers.

I think that they will cheer up my mornings.

After a busy day yesterday I've had a leisurely Sunday, went for a 2 mile run this morning (building myself up slowly for my 10k run in May! The Nike+ iPhone app is really great though) and then we had family round for a paella. Hmm paella. Reminds me that in 4 weeks time I will nearly be in Valencia having an amazing paella on the beach with mi familia! How was your weekend?

  1. I love your new coat and the Cath K bowls!

    The best thing about buying your own place is getting all the stuff to go in it! :)

  3. Ooooh, mortgages! How scary!! We went for a chat with a mortgage adviser a few weeks ago and it just petrified me. Apparently banks don't like the self employed. Mean banks!

    Good luck with the house hunt.

    Oh, and that dress is adorable!

  14. Lovely coat! I also love Brew, and I've sat in there many times with an Earl Grey Latte, doing my work. My favourite place to eat in Liverpool is Kimos - cheap and cheerful.

  21. Breakfast out of Cath Kidson bowls is one of life's little joys :-)

    Your weekend sounds lovely, moving out sounds both exiting and scary, and you look adorable in that coat!

  22. I think I already expressed my views on your dress on twitter! Love it, especially with the coat. I also love the bowls. I'm sort of glad there's not a Cath Kidston job near me, think it would be dangerous. I once had a call about a job in their marketing dept, I wanted so much!

    That's so exciting about possibly moving, although mortgages are terrifying!

    Good for you doing the run, I'm slowly but surely re-introducing exercise, actually feel terrible because I'm so out of shape!

  23. Sounds like you had a great time, and I LOVE your coat - what an absolute steal. x

  33. Yes, I'll work as a nurse :) I really want to travel all over the UK whenever I can. In the beginning will be a bit hard, but once I get some stability I'll do that! If I visit Liverpool sometime, I'll be sure to say something to you, maybe we could meet up? That would be lovely!
