Our Winning Afternoon In Liverpool & A Giveaway

Just before Christmas I won a prize with Juice FM, a £75 voucher to spend at Beauty Buzz Kardashian Beauty store in Liverpool then a couple of weeks ago I won a meal with a bottle of wine at Gusto on the Albert Docks, as both prizes required a trip to Liverpool we decided to make an afternoon of it.

We left the little ones at home (not alone of course) and made our way to Liverpool and headed to church street to find the Kardashian store, we walked all the way to the end of Church street before admitting defeat and popping into a camera shop to ask them what number they were, after finding our bearings we headed back the way we came to find the store right at where we had started ! Not to worry as we enjoyed the street entertainment on the way.

The lady in the Beauty Buzz store was really friendly and so helpful, although I do wear make-up I’ve always been an eye-liner, foundation and powder type of girl, keep it simple is my motto, after a little friendly guidance I chose my products, most of which were on buy one get one free, what a bonus !

We left the store and headed back towards Albert Docks, we had some time to spare before our reservation so we had a wander round, taking photo’s, we popped in to look at the 1950’s house, looked out across the Mersey and spotted the love locks that I heard so much about.

We made our way into Gusto, we were a little early so ordered a drink and sat on the comfy well worn leather sofa’s in the bar area, once our beeper started flashing we were shown to our table and the waiter took our order’s, I had already studied the menu at home so we knew exactly what we wanted, the food was delicious, I totally forgot to take a photo of the starter’s as Chris and I were both so hungry having missed lunch so we could fit all three courses into our belly’s.

The only negatives about the experience were the dim lighting and the very loud music, I could barely hear what the waiter was asking me and Chris and I had to almost shout to have a conversation.

With full belly’s and me a little tipsy from one glass of wine too many we made the journey home, we were treated to a few flakes of snow but sadly they didn’t stick.

We had a fantastic afternoon all for free and thanks to this wonderful hobby, so I thought I would treat you my readers to something nice, I picked up an extra palette and powder compact from Beauty Buzz to giveaway.
