Dinner at Pho

Hello my loves, something new today my first ever food post! I think this is my first fully food post anyway and I am excited to share my thoughts with you all. I recently went down and tried a new Vietnamese restaurant Pho with fellow blogger Holly. I was excited to try the menu because I had heard great things about it.

We were greeted by Codie our lovely hostess who gave us an overview of the menu and told us the specials. I was nervous/excited because I am quite a fussy eater and I have never been one to try cultured food seeing chopsticks instead of knives and forks got me abit stressed, not gonna lie. We first ordered drinks and I opted for a green tea lemonade which was insanely gorgeous (you can see how happy I was with it) I literally ordered 4 of them throughout the night.

We then ordered our food and got given some prawn crackers to snack on which are my favourites. For starters I got the crispy chicken wings with sriracha and I have been dreaming about them ever since, hands down the best chicken wings I have ever had and I normally don't enjoy chicken on the bone. If these were anything to go by then my main was surely going to be heavenly.

Our main meals arrived and I got the shredded chicken salad with Asian herbs, peppers and a chilli ginger dressing. This didn't look too filling but oh my god I couldn't finish it! It was gorgeous, I chose to eat mine with a knife and fork because I was only imagining the disasters I would face using chop sticks. This salad was so satisfying, I always go for a chicken salad when I'm in restaurants and this one was especially gorgeous.

Lastly, we couldn't leave without dessert, right? My favourite part of the whole meal was this Pandan pancake with roasted coconut served with mango sorbet. I chose to get it with mango sorbet no matter how weird the choices may seem, but they went together perfectly. I genuinely could have eaten another one, and of course with my dessert I ordered another green tea lemonade.

I am so happy I got the opportunity to try Pho and I am surprised at myself for enjoying it so much. Check out the full website here as they have loads of restaurants dotted around, the one I went to was the one on Bold Street here in Liverpool and I highly recommend you visit!

OOTD // Pink Denim

The sun finally came out in Liverpool so I took the opportunity to shoot an OOTD post for you all. I have missed taking outfit pictures because there is so many outfits I want to post and loads of gorgeous streets around Liverpool. For this look I am wearing my pink denim jacket from Topshop which is incredibly comfy and so so pretty! Not to mention 30% of proceeds go to cancer research.

I styled this jacket with my favourite high waisted grey jeans from H&M and my comfy striped body suit from Next which I have worn in a previous OOTD. This is such a staple look that you could easily wear everyday and I seem to be seeing pink everywhere. I loved the subtle rips in the sleeve and the shade of pink is my favourite.

I hope this lovely weather keeps up so I can share more OOTD posts with you all, I love what I'm seeing in high street stores this season and I can't wait to purchase even more clothes. Thats all for my outfit of the day posts and I hope you all have an amazing week, don't let the Monday blues get you.

LIV Organic & Natural Food Market // Event & Goody Bag

Hey guys! Just last week I was invited to the launch night of the LIV Organic & Natural Food Market on Bold Street, the night was filled with food, drinks and entertainment. I had heard a lot about this market prior to the event and I was excited to explore what was inside, for a start the shop is massive it reminds me of an American supermarket like Whole Foods. The variety of products was insane, I discovered brands I didn't even know existed and tried delicious vegan goodies.

There were free samples laid out in the eatery with free beverages, I had about 4 of the sparkling blackcurrant drinks and the staff were so lovely. The free cupcakes were also delicious I must have scoffed about 4 of them, I am not a vegan but the brownies and the bakewell muffins were absolutely insane! Throughout the night there was also a live pianist playing and singing some amazing songs, and little stall all around the shop for you to sample the new brands.

There was a sea of bloggers throughout the night, along with the press covering the event. Overall, it was such a lovely atmosphere and I of course did a bit of shopping I purchased some herbal tea from The English Tea Shop, along with some vegan marshmallows and some lovely yogurt from Brown Cow Organics. Before leaving we were treated to a goodie bag featuring more of the gorgeous products!

Inside the goodie bag Australian vegan beauty brand Inika threw in a loose mineral foundation and loose mineral bronzer, I have never been one for powder foundations as my skin is prone to dryness but I will definitely give these products a try. A company I had never heard of before JASON gave out some samples of their shampoo, moisturiser and body wash. I am yet to try these but I did have a look at their stall on the night and they smell divine.

Lisa's Organic Craft Crisps were giving out a goodie bag with 2 packs of crisps in and they also had bowls of the flavours for you to try. I am such a fan of crisps and I thought these were heavenly, my personal favourite was the alpine rock salt ones but I recommend you try all of them they are gorgeous! The last few goodies in the bag was some foot cream from Bioturm, hand cream from Lavera and body moisturiser from Good Day Organics which although is a mens grooming company I am excited to try this moisturiser as my skin benefits greatly from oils. These companies are all natural & organic so I am excited to use these products and get a feel for the company and make more purchases in the future.

So if you are in Liverpool and near Bold Street get your booty down to this shop because you will not be disappointed and there is an endless amount of choices and also a cafe for you to lounge in.

Love, Heather xo
