Street food at its best- Backchich Liverpool

Bakchich bakchich 3 bakchich 2
 
My absolute favourite food is the messy, get stuck in and eat with your fingers kind. None of this single pea covered in sea foam on an oversized white plate nonsense....I am all about hearty, fill your boots goodness.
 
Located down the quirkiness that it Bold Street in Liverpool, Bakchich is a small but full of personality Lebanese Street food restaurant. My parents had raved about it for months so when me and my mum went for a shopping trip recently I wanted to try it for myself. Safe to say I wasn't disappointed.
 
We settled for the Shish Taouk to share and it was amazing. HUGE pieces of marinated chicken arrived on warm Lebanese flat bread and was accompanied with Arabic rice and Backchich salad (minus the parsley..bawk). The chicken melted as soon as it met my knife and along with the garlic & chilli sauces made for the most amazing flavour. The rice had a really lovely flavour and the salad was fresh and a nice contrast to the slight spice from the chicken.
 
Although we shared a dish there was plenty for the two of us and the whole meal was under £15 including drinks. Whilst we were there I watched numerous sharing platters arrive at surrounding tables which looked just as tasty.
 
I would without a doubt recommend Bakchich if you are ever in Liverpool, the food is top notch but so is the service and I loved the quirky interior.

Going for the safari look today! I picked up this Aztec crop in Primark last weekend for £2, I wasn't sure what I would wear it with but I think it works ok with these high waisted shorts.
 
The hat is also a newbie and has been plastered to my head since I bought it....now I want all of the hats!!

Victorias Secret Summer Scents

Lola & Me Lola & Me 2
 
Hold the phone and put down your bottles of Chanel.
I have talked about it before and I don't intend to stop anytime soon but I have a serious obsession with Victoria's Secret fragrances...especially during the Summer months. I have never been a fan of strong floral perfumes, I am more of a sweet and fruity kind of girl (?) which is what draws me to these little bottles of heaven!
 
I never seem to be able to walk into a Victoria's Secret store without buying something and this time I went all out on their 3 for £24 offer. 3 bottles of perfume seems a little excessive but who's counting (apart from my bf)!!
Coconut Passion is a repurchase after having several strangers ask what I was wearing. I can only describe it as 'holiday in a bottle', it's sweet yet a little musky and lasts for hours. Love Spell and Pure Seduction are both fruity and refreshing and were my absolute faves when I lived over in the states. Besides making me feel extremely nostalgic, they smell amazing and I am getting 1 of my 5 a day (huge thumbs up!!)
 
Lastly, I couldnt leave without mentioning this super gorgeous patterned make up bag from Lola & Me which I was lucky enough to win in a Twitter comp. You can see more of Heidi Lou's (Maker & Creator) designs here
 
 
Have you tried any of the Victoria's Secret fragrances? Which are you favourite?

Forever 21 Maxi

FOREVER 21 MAXI DRESS FOREVER 21 MAXI DRESS 2 FOREVER 21 MAXI DRESS 5 FOREVER 21 MAXI DRESS 3 FOREVER 21 MAXI DRESS 4
 
Dress & Necklace- Forever21
Hat- Topshop
Shoes & Bag- Primark
 
Every time I have an occasion where I need to wear a dress I always head to Forever 21 and they never let me down. This is what I wore to my friends wedding this weekend and it is probably the girliest thing I own right now. I nearly wimped out in wearing it as it's a no bra kind of situation and well...I don't have much to show for in the chesticle area, but I thought feck it...make do with what you were born with!!!
 
Unfortunately I had a little split incident whilst walking up the stairs so one side is higher than the other but I have no one to blame but myself...and the copious amounts of gin I drank!

Aztec jacket

F&F Jacket F&F Jacket 3 F&F Jacket 2
 
Jacket- F&F
Jeans- Topshop
Tee, Bag & Shoes- Primark
 
These pictures are overexposed, blurry and pretty crappy....a bit like my last working week but I thought I would post them anyway. When I blog for a living then I will concern myself with more professional looking pictures..... !!
 
I bought this F&F jacket a few months back but I forgot to blog about it. I wear it a lot for work but I love how it looks with skinnies and a basic tee.
