A Many Berry Smoothie

I am currently in Warwick looking after my two cousins for their parents as it's the last week of the summer holidays. To keep the three of us entertained I suggested to make a fruit smoothie, to which the kids came up with a smoothie of just berries, so that's what we did.

We chopped a load of strawberries and added those, raspberries, blueberries into a blender and added a cup of apple juice afterwards to make the contents smoother to drink. The girls LOVED it and it came out such a lovely colour too. We drank these along side some pancakes. Yum!

Liverpool Loving

My birthday feels like years ago and it was only at the beginning of the month. To celebrate me turning 19, me and a few family members took a little trip to Liverpool and lets just say I didn't want to go home. We stayed for two nights in a penthouse apartment on the Quay Side/Dock which was such a lovely treat from my family. It rained for the three days we were there and the breeze from the sea was so cold that it felt like November, not August. But, we didn't let the weather ruin our exploring of the beautiful city. We hid out of the rain for a couple of hours by having a few drinks in The Cavern, this being somewhere that me and my grandad have always wanted to go, the atmosphere was so warm and welcoming and everyone sang along to every Beatle song you could think of. 

If you do visit Liverpool I would recommend having a meal at Gusto which is on the dock. The meals could be classed as pricey but the food was out of this world and it was a lovely way to end birthday celebrations. 


I would definitely visit Liverpool again as I fell in love with what the city had to offer and it's only just a quick train journey from Manchester.
