However much I'm trying to pretend it's not, it's finally reaching the end of my time in Liverpool. On Monday, I'll be attending the English Society's Summer Ball - so of course that means time to get a nice frock on! This is a bit of a sneak peek for any of my course friends who may be reading, but I've settled on one of Booho's boutique dresses to celebrate in style. I love the pastel two-tone nature of it, so am praying that I don't come home covered in sambuca, as is the normal post-night look. I've paired it with these (oxblood, I know) heels that I bought with a voucher in the sales that are impossible to walk in. But they're pretty, so it doesn't matter. I can't wait to sit in the Bluecoat with a cocktail, listening to nineties hip-hop with a group of the most amazing people I've met over my three years in this city.

Posh-ness aside, ahem, we swapped our Friday post-seminar cake trip for one to the newly-opened Free State Kitchen. Burgers seem to be a London obsession, and I can't go a week without seeing a blog post about the newest joint in town. Trust me, I do love a good Byron (and they're opening one here soon!), but FSK certainly rival their Southern counterparts. And they have rosemary salt. I went for the cheeseburger, but Sita definitely enjoyed her hotdog, and Clarity was pleased with her veggie option. We're all determined to try as much as there is to offer in our last weeks here. If anyone's got any Liverpool-based recommendations, I'd love to hear them.

I'd also like to thank my wonderful flatmate Amy for taking these photos (and bearing with my "can you get a close-up of my bag?" x 100000), and I'm going to bully her into putting the photos I took of her onto her new blog asap!

  7. Mmm will definitely be visiting this restaurant at some point when I'm back in Liverpool. I was so happy when I saw a Byron will be opening. Having had a taste of them, GBK doesn't compare! The dress looks lovely on you and omg yes those heels ARE pretty.

  8. Lucha Libre is ace for super affordable Mexican street food if you haven't been yet, next to FACT. Also Delifonseca on Stanley Street - different menu every day, and lovely staff, but it's a bit pricier. The Kazimier Gardens is nice for a drink in the sun, and has a little food kitchen - their fries are ace. There's a really nice place next to the Phil called Ego, which has tasty and reasonably priced food too.

    Your shoes are gorgeous, I hope you have an amazing last few weeks in Liverpool, and congratulations on getting to the end of your degree. x
