Yard and Coop Blogger Night

Just before Christmas I had the pleasure of being invited to a blogger evening with a brand new restaurant called Yard and Coop, I have never actually attended a restaurant opening in all the years of having my blog and it did not disappoint. If you can't already tell by the name it is a chicken restaurant and as a big lover of it all I was very excited.

The whole layout of the restaurant was stunning, they had coops which looked just like chicken coops which I thought was a great idea and made the atmosphere really cute. The food was gorgeous, I am fuming that I didn't get a snap of my food to share with you all because I am not lying when I say it tasted amazing and looked amazing!

We started the night off with some cocktails and given it being a chicken restaurant the cocktails had eggs in. I absolutely loved them, could have drank them all night (kind of did drink them all night). Now if you're thinking 'I'm a vegetarian, what there for me?' let me tell you they do a lot of non-meat options. If you like cheese then you will love the non-chicken nuggets they do, they are basically battered halloumi and are to die for. I am such a cheese person as it is so I was all over these and one of the sides they did was mac 'n' cheese balls which again were to die for.

Overall, the restaurant is gorgeous and the food is tasty as hell so get down to Yard & Coop. The one in Liverpool is on Hanover Street and the one in Manchester is located in The Northern Quarter, I would highly recommend you try it if you can get down to one and you like chicken.

Hello 2017

Happy happy new year everybody! 2016 has been a weird and wonderful year for me, I think it has been quite a tough year for the most and a lot of people around me have faced a lot. For me personally, this year hasn't been the best year of my life but it hasn't been the worst at all. I've had a lot of laughs, I've spent loads of time with my family and friends having a ball, I've made so many new friends that I know will be in my life for a while and I've made a ton of memories!

This year I turned 18, I got a new job and overall I think 2016 has been a growing year for me. I've changed so much in the past year as a person, I've gotten more confident with myself, round about April I just got into the mindset of not caring what people thought anymore because I've always been a little bit shy and self conscious about myself and it truly can hold you back in life. I have learnt a lot of important life lessons this year, faced a few challenges and overall its made me a better person which I am incredibly thankful for.

I have enjoyed 2016 don't get me wrong, its been one of the wildest years of my life and I would re-live alot of it in a heartbeat but what gets me down looking at the year gone by is what I have actually done. I feel like I haven't achieved anything significant in alot of areas in my life I've really hit the brakes and just let my life coast on by and I really need to get that drive and ambition I had at the beginning of the year. At the end of the day I am 18 and at this moment in time this is as easy and simple as my life is probably going to get, I work part time, I go to college but I still live with my parents who are there for me no matter what and I shouldn't take that for granted.

I want to start 2017 positively, I don't want to dwell on the negatives I have faced and I think this year is going to be a good one! I will be going to university this year which is a big change, I've got so many more crazy and exciting times to come with people I haven't even met yet and I know its going to be amazing. I have been slacking so much on my blog here and I said this last January but this year just took over my life so blogging wasn't my main priority but its always going to be something I will do no matter how often I get the chance to do it, expect alot from me in 2017 as I have got alot of posts planned some are already scheduled for the next week or so and I have promised myself I will not let it go this long without posting again because blogging makes me really happy, I love doing it and I love connecting with you all I don't want to lose that.

I would make a list of things I want to achieve this year but honestly the list would be longer than my arm I have so much I want to achieve this year and I'm going to get there, I hope you all have an amazing 2017 and I wish nothing but love and positivity to you all
