  1. You know I still havent been to Liverpool and you had me sold as soon as I saw the waterfront picture. Anywhere near water is the place for me. Maybe I was a fish in my past live. Liverpool looks beautiful and as I have cut down on travel outside UK this year I really have to make a stop in Liverpool.

  2. That top photo is EXACTLY how I want my actual bedroom to look, I might need to bookmark the photo for future inspiration! I’ve only ever been to Liverpool once, but I was colelcting money for charity so I never got to experience any of this side of the city.
