Fat Freezing; ‘Sugar Belly’ be GONE?

Being officially ‘middle aged’ I had succumbed to the fact that my stomach was reflecting this with a ‘middle spread’ that was now emphasising my still skinny legs even more. Despite predominately ‘eating clean’, combined with some albeit ‘gentle exercise’ the excess fat on my lower abdomen was really getting me down. I started to research why it was there and how I could ‘shift it’! Like many women out there, I LOVE a glass of wine or ‘two’. The downside? Wine is laden with sugar which, you guessed it, turns…

Microblade virgin alert !!

I have always struggled with my eyebrow shape and had to use pencil and brow kits to top my brows up to make them look fuller. As a busy working mum to a 9-month old baby, my eyebrows were often ‘overlooked’ due to lack of time and energy. Looking for a more permanent solution, I researched the increasingly popular technique of micro blading. Microblading is a form semi-permanent make up tattoo artistry whereby pigment is implanted under your skin with a manual, handheld tool instead of a machine. This gives a more detailed…

Santa Maluco, Pizzeria with some serious South American soul!

I am usually the type that always steers away from what I like to call ‘real food’ during work hours as I worry I’ll become too relaxed for the remainder of the day ,although I have to admit I was proven totally wrong by the unique and exciting experience  at Santa Maluco. My two work colleagues and I had a busy morning of meetings in the city centre,  and although pushed for time, we thought it would be a good idea to grab some food and ‘recap’ over our last meeting while…

Afternoon Tea ‘with a twist’ at Malmaison Liverpool

I’m not usually a huge fan of Afternoon Tea as it’s so often very predictable and, to be honest, I very rarely drink tea. However, I’d heard good reviews about Malmaison’s recently ‘revamped’ Afternoon Tea Menu. My colleague Yvonne and I were already planning to visit Malmaison in Liverpool to view their function rooms for an up and coming event, so we decided to book a table in their Brasserie for mid afternoon. Upon arrival, we were met with a stark contrast to the surprisingly perfect summer afternoon in late September….

The Iconic Penthouse, Bold Street, Liverpool

Many of us are choosing to book an apartment over a conventional hotel room. Whether it’s for business or pleasure, the flexibility of staying in an apartment can be very appealing to families, party groups, couples and those travelling solo. The main reasons being extra space, a kitchen, separate seating area’s and often the use of more than one bath/shower room. Also, booking an apartment for multiple occupancies, can, in fact, work out more cost effective. Liverpool is experiencing an increase in the redevelopment of often dilapidated buildings that are being transformed…

PANAM Review: Brunch with a Bloody Mary & View….

I’m not going to lie, this unsettled weather has been getting me down! The thought of preparing and cooking our ‘usual’ Sunday Roast AND cleaning up all the pots and pans created for a ‘two man’ dinner, really wasn’t appealing to me what with the humidity and sunless grey skies. For a split second, I pondered on the idea of lighting the BBQ but common sense prevailed with said weather. After all, it was July! Sounding like a perpetulant child, I pleaded with ‘The Other Half’ (TOH) ‘PLEASE can we do something…

LVL Lashes: Au naturel treatment that will make you ‘flutter’

Even though I’m a fan of a number of beauty treatments and enhancers, I’ve never felt comfortable wearing false eyelashes or even using ‘clamping curlers’ for that matter. Without sounding too vain, I’m blessed with fairly long lashes and found that using weekend or strip lashes means sacrificing a few natural lashes. So, how do you enhance your own lashes without damaging or losing them?? I was having my eyebrows tinted at All Woman Beauty Salon and heard about the LVL (Length-Volume-Lift) Enhance Treatment that works with your natural lashes. Eagar…

HIFU Non evasive treatment with surgical results….

Ok, ‘Hands up’! I’m 41 and have tried a number of non-surgical treatments so was somewhat sceptical as to what results this latest treatment could produce. However, I was intrigued that a number of high profile celebs seemed to be ‘smitten’ with this ‘High Intensity Focused Ultrasound also known as ‘3D SkinMed’, ‘Ultrasound Facelift’ or ‘Ultratherapy’. Curiosity got the better of me, as did my desire to look ten years younger, so I decided to ‘treat myself’ and hopefully find out why this treatment has become one of the most sought…

The Richmond Hotel, Hatton Garden

      When possible, I try to stay in an independent hotel, rather than a chain as the décor tends to be more creative and less ‘safe’, the service more personal and the food less staid. It was the other half’s (TOH) birthday and were determined to venture into town for dinner and stay over. Having previously attended a dinner at The Richmond, it seemed like a good choice, the décor, service and food were impressive. We checked in with ease around 4 pm on Saturday and were very…
