Tweet Eats: Walrus, Manchester

Even though I've lived it Manchester for nearly 7 years now, I'm still finding places I haven't been to before. I have an ever growing list of places I need to venture to and I'm very slowly ticking them off one by one.

Walrus is one of those places. I've popped in there for a cocktail on a night out before but I've never tried the food out, their new menu launched a few weeks ago and we were lucky enough to be able to get a sneak preview.

What to wear on holiday when you're pregnant

Getting dressed on a normal day when you're growing a human isn't the easiest so throw in the summer heat and holiday vibes and it becomes a military operation. Joe and I recently got back from our 'babymoon' (I'm not a huge fan of that term but I'll use it anyway) so I thought I'd share a few key pieces that I wore while we were away that I'd recommend for any other fellow preggos out there.

To be honest, it took me ages to find pieces that I felt comfortable and confident in before we went away. Joe essentially threw stuff in a holdall the night before we left whereas for me it was a two week planning situation with A LOT of ASOS orders. I tried out quite a few different looks, I attempted to add in more colour and I tried to get out of my comfort zone, but maternity clothing is quite difficult so I ended up sending quite a lot back and going for mostly black, white and denim pieces.

There is only one maternity piece in this post so it's suitable for anyone who isn't pregnant too and for bump size context I was 24 weeks pregnant while we were away!

Life Lately: Spring Update

It's been a few months since my last Life Lately update so I thought it was about to time for another one! We've just got back from holiday and have spent pretty much the whole day sorting the house and ourselves out ready for real life. Think trips to the tip, sorting out all of our clothes, all of the wash loads, cleaning and storing things in the loft. Basically all of the glam, fun things in life...

I'm working on making sure Tweet is updated more regularly too, at least once a week as I really want to make the time for it more in my busy schedule, I've been blogging for 11 years now and I'm not about to let life get in the way of it!

Our Kitchen Renovation: Before and After

Since we moved into our house nearly 18 months ago we have been DYING to rip out the kitchen and make it our own. The kitchen the previous owners had put in was fine, it was practical enough and not offensive but it was very poorly finished, grubby around the edges and just not what we would choose.

We finally had enough saved up to attack it and found a great kitchen designer who could make the process really easy, which was just what we needed with busy jobs, a baby on the way and barely any good contacts for reliable electricians, plasterers etc.

I wanted to give you a bit of a tour of the new kitchen and show you what it looked like on the first day that Dan started to show the difference between what we had and what we have now. We could not be happier with it now and it only took a couple of weeks from start to finish so our life was barely disrupted.

Tweet Eats: The Florist, Liverpool

Liverpool is one of those places that I go to pretty regularly but very rarely see much of the city. I must admit, it's a city I tend to spend more time focusing on how much prosecco I can drink in one sitting rather than absorbing the culture and architecture, I'm a bad person.

Last weekend I was invited to try out the Sunday roast at brand new restaurant The Florist and, considering my current preggo situation, prosecco was firmly off the menu. I thought it would be nice to take advantage of a bubble free day out exploring Liverpool (luckily in the sunshine!) with one of my oldest and best friends Lydia catching up before heading to The Florist to try out their Sunday menu. Delightful.
