A couple of things




No shoe collection can be complete without the obligatory black stiletto.


Purchased these black heels ready for summer.


These metallic heels from Tesco were my bargain of the year so far...£5


Inspired by an outfit I found on Pinterest, I bought these shoes in the New Look sale and they look great with some turned up jeans and a brocade white and gold coat I've had for years.


These £20 boots from New Look were perfect for walking around Manchester and Bristol, they literally saved my soles!


I bought a basic selfie stick, this is one of my first pictures at a local restaurant with the waiters and my sister and niece.  No more pictures where I am stuck behind the camera. 


A little bit of vintage, purchased in one of our good local vintage shops.


I had to share this picture of my dog Jasper, this totally sums up what kind of Sundays we have at home, I wish sometimes I could feel that chilled out.

Food and drink


Do you find that the majority of photos on your phone are mostly the same type of things? Lately, I seem to have taken a lots of pictures of food, drink, shoes and not much else, Even a long weekend in Bristol resulted in just two pictures of food.


These two images are from a visit to True Reds BBQ in Manchester. A Smoked Brisket and Burnt Ends S'Wich accompanied by a Honey Berry Smash cocktail and some Brooklyn Brown Ale. Absolutely lush!



A fresh spring day gave us the opportunity to explore the Harbourside area of Bristol a couple of weeks ago. Walking around the city gave us an appetite to enjoy some BBQ at the Spitfire BBQ restaurant.  Above is a picture of our starter Pork Rashers [Pork Belly strips dusted with the pitfire mix and grilled until nice and crispy and then served with chopped tomatoes, onions and basil.] 
It was too nice to share! Naturally I had to indulge in a cocktail and had a Seductive Strawberry milkshake that was recommended by the helpful waitress, it lived up to its reputation. 



I also like the change in seasons, especially when it means there are new cocktails to try out at the Revolution Bar.  Like the Cherry Cola cocktail and flavoured shots... is it bad to choose a shot based on colour, rather than taste?  Can you guess which one I tried?


I've also recently been for my first Thai meal, definitely will not be my last.  Gorgeous food, with great company and a nice cold glass of wine, what more can a girl ask for.
